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.

  2. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    A) Salah + 12
    Or
    B) Johnstone Stones Taylor Antonio

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      A

    2. Lexi2014
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      Salah is rested

      1. Lexi2014
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 16 days ago

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

        1. Shark Team
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 15 days ago

          Oh nice

  3. zon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    Talk sense to me

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

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      A

    2. deshawn7
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 16 days 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
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 16 days 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
      9 months, 16 days ago

      Saiss to DGW def?

  5. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    Should I take a hit & BB??

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

  6. Wheato182
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 16 days 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
      9 months, 15 days ago

      im in the same freaking boat.

  7. Lexi2014
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

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

    for a -8 is a no brainer right??

    1. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      Yes. Worth every penny.

  8. NejiHyuuga01
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    Is Shaw to Coufal worth a -4?

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

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

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      no

  9. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    Would you rather play

    A. Stones (-4)
    B. Bamford

    1. NejiHyuuga01
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      I think A

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 16 days ago

        B easy

    2. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      B

  10. Djemba-Djemba
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 16 days 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. Levi's 501
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 16 days ago

      B.

  11. CR7 is Home
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    My next week's transfer is gonna be

    Ferguson ➡ Mitchell

  12. abaalan
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

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

  13. artvandelay316
    9 months, 16 days 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
      9 months, 16 days ago

      Not B

      1. artvandelay316
        9 months, 16 days 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.

  14. Zebras
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 16 days 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
      9 months, 16 days ago

      B and bench dier

      1. Zebras
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 16 days ago

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

        1. Rochdale_Cowboy
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 16 days 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
            9 months, 16 days ago

            True, this would be the week Brewster scores

  15. Millie7
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. Rochdale_Cowboy
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      Maybe vardy

      1. Millie7
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 16 days ago

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

        1. Rochdale_Cowboy
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 16 days 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
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 16 days ago

          Castagne Watkins.

    2. Millie7
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 16 days ago

      thanks guy, some good ideas

  16. BEEZUS
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 16 days ago

    BBing this week but can only get Salah and KdB both if I take a -8, which leaves the question..

    1. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 15 days ago

      I would do B. There's points on that bench, and you're shipping out 2 deadweights.
