Pick the best Gameweek 19 players for a free chance to win £10k with Fantasy5


Sponsored by Fantasy5


We’re back for another stab at Fantasy5 – the game that gives you the chance to win £10,000 for FREE.

All you have to do is pick one player from each of five nominated fixtures for the upcoming Gameweek. If all of your selections score more points than their respective Fantasy5 ‘points targets’, then you win.

And that looks even more achievable in Gameweek 19, with some points targets appearing more generous than ever.

Fantasy5 is easy to play as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without the bonus points.

It’s also the fastest media outlet for live Fantasy points, displaying all player points from the five games in question, as well as the live score and time.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and selections must be submitted before kick-off of the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

GAMEWEEK 19 FIXTURES

The five matches in this round of fixtures are:

  • Liverpool v Manchester United
  • Manchester City v Crystal Palace
  • Arsenal v Newcastle United
  • West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion
  • Leicester City v Chelsea

The deadline is at 16:30 GMT on Sunday 17 January.

SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

Bruno Fernandes (6.5) only needs to find the net against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, and avoid his fifth yellow card of the season, to eclipse his predicted points total for Gameweek 19.

And that might be easier than usual considering the Reds have conceded five penalties this season, the joint-third-highest in the Premier League thus far.

Vicente Guaita (2.5) will have his hands full when Crystal Palace travel to Manchester City on Sunday evening which could help him score the three or more points needed here.

He has eclipsed two points in six of the last eight FPL Gameweeks, earning an additional for saves on four occasions. Facing Manchester City’s attackers will certainly help him try to repeat that feat at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsenal may have been disappointed with their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Thursday night but they did keep a third successive clean sheet.

I fancy the Gunners to get another one against Newcastle and if David Luiz (5.5) starts, which he did against the Eagles, then as long as he stays booking free, he would hit the six-point threshold.

Vladimir Coufal (6.5) is my pick from the West Ham defence as they prepare to host a West Bromwich Albion side that has failed to find the net in three of their last four Premier League matches.

They are also the worst side in the division over that period for conceding chances down their left-hand side of the pitch, which Coufal will face as West Ham’s marauding right-back.

Jamie Vardy (6.5) faces a Chelsea defence with only one clean sheet in the last seven Premier League matches, their last on the road coming in a Gameweek 9 win at Newcastle.

Meanwhile, the Leicester striker has accrued two goals and five assists in his last five at the King Power Stadium.

LOGAN’S FPL’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

While James Milner’s (2.5) minutes have been limited of late, as Liverpool’s captain he is could be back in the starting XI for a crucial top of the table clash with Manchester United. If the Reds manage to shut-out the Red Devils with Milner on the pitch, or if he scores a penalty, he will eclipse his points projection.

Cheikhou Kouyaté (2.5) is a riskier pick although as a midfielder he won’t be punished by Manchester City’s goal-scoring exploits. If he can use his threat at set pieces and/or keep an unlikely clean sheet then Kouyaté will be a winner.

Alexandre Lacazette (6.5) may have failed to find the net against Crystal Palace but he still has four goals in as many Premier League matches.

Michail Antonio (6.5), and Jamie Vardy (6.5) are both potential goal-scorers and/or assisters who should each play past 60 minutes in their respective games.

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years

      Salah is rested

      1. Lexi2014
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        When I say rested I mean he had a BGW 18...so will be good to go

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years

          Oh nice

  3. zon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Talk sense to me

    A) Bench: McCarthy Holding Adams Anguissa
    B) BB same lot
    C) BB, additional -4 for Adams -> Watkins/Antonio?

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      A

    2. deshawn7
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Probably A. You'll need Adams to start both games and score at least one to make it worth just the hit alone

  4. deshawn7
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Martinez
    Robbo Cresswell Saiss Stones
    Bruno (VC) KDB(C) Son Soucek
    Kane Bamford

    Subs: Areola Lacazette Dallas ESR

    Worth the bench boost?
    Or should I TC for KDB?
    Have 1 FT as well

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Saiss to DGW def?

  5. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Should I take a hit & BB??

    Martinez ¦ Forster
    Cancelo Maguire Coufal
    KdB Bruno Rashford Soucek
    Jesus Vardy Wilson
    ¦ Saka Lascelles Holding

  6. Wheato182
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Madness to take Kane and Son out before they face Sheff Utd?

    Really considering Son + Kane + JWP > KDB + Vardy + Soucek (-8)

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 hours ago

      im in the same freaking boat.

  7. Lexi2014
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Neto / DCL / Welbeck -> Foden / Antonio / Watkins

    for a -8 is a no brainer right??

    1. Yes Ndidi
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Yes. Worth every penny.

  8. NejiHyuuga01
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Is Shaw to Coufal worth a -4?

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Yes I think, we ain't keeping a CS in GW19

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      no

  9. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Would you rather play

    A. Stones (-4)
    B. Bamford

    1. NejiHyuuga01
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      I think A

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        B easy

    2. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      B

  10. Djemba-Djemba
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 6 hours ago

    Which would you do

    A) BB with Guaita/areloa , holding , Bamford and Bednarek on the bench - this option costs -8 as I need to transfer a goalie in

    B) TC salah

    1. Kannbury
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        B.

    2. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      My next week's transfer is gonna be

      Ferguson ➡ Mitchell

    3. abaalan
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Thoughts on fitness / likelihood to play doubles on Antonio and Charlie Taylor?

    4. artvandelay316
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      I currently have

      Lloris
      Cancelo, Stones, Coufal
      Saka, KDB, Fernandes (C), Son, Rashford
      Lacazette, Wilson

      Bench
      Forster, Holding, Mitchell, Brewster

      Toying with either
      A) -4 cost: Lacazette > Vardy and Saka > Soucek
      or
      B) -12 cost: Son > Salah, Saka > Foden, Lacazette > Bamford, Stones > Dallas.

      What do you reckon?

      1. Rochdale_Cowboy
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        Not B

        1. artvandelay316
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 6 hours ago

          The cost is offputting I know, but I am paranoid Salah is going to have a big score.
          My only other option is to leave Lacazette and do KDB > Salah, Saka > Foden for -4.

    5. Zebras
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      Feeling a bit stuck here. Do I save a transfer or take a couple hits then bench boost (I’m afraid I’ll just break even with the latter)

      Martinez
      Dier Dias Coufal
      Kdb Bruno Son Gundo
      Laca Kane Bamford

      Ryan | C. Taylor, Riedewald Mitchell

      A. Hold
      B. Taylor > Creswell, but who do I bench
      C. Ryan > Fabianski
      D. Taylor Ryan Riedewald > creswell Soucek 4.5 goalie for -8 hit and play BB

      1. Rochdale_Cowboy
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        B and bench dier

        1. Zebras
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 6 hours ago

          I know Spurs haven’t been keeping cs consistently but surely against Sheffield they would right? :/

          1. Rochdale_Cowboy
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 6 hours ago

            He's only likely to score 6 pts at best though. Sheff might have a confidence boost, and the special Brewster got to score soon

            1. Zebras
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 5 hours ago

              True, this would be the week Brewster scores

    6. Millie7
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 6 hours ago

      DCL > ???
      Yedlin > ???
      11.8 ITB

      1. Rochdale_Cowboy
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        Maybe vardy

        1. Millie7
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 6 hours ago

          have 11.8 combined for both players , sorry should have been more specific!!

          1. Rochdale_Cowboy
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 6 hours ago

            Try and get a mid priced double week striker. I'd say Wilson, but a lot on here think Antonio. With the left over get the best City defender you can Cancelo - Diaz - stone

          2. Yes Ndidi
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 5 hours ago

            Castagne Watkins.

      2. Millie7
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 5 hours ago

        thanks guy, some good ideas

    7. BEEZUS
