The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for Double Gameweek 19

Welcome to the Fantasy Football Scout Guide to Double Gameweek 19 ahead of today’s 11:00 GMT deadline.

The fixture schedule has shifted once again. Like a surreal game of Grandmother’s Footsteps, it’s moved every time you turn to look at it. 

Aston Villa lost and regained their Double Gameweek in a matter of hours, although they now face Newcastle United instead of Everton in addition to Manchester City. But the clever fixture juggling did not extend to Leeds United and Southampton, with their upcoming midweek game postponed to accommodate Southampton’s rescheduled FA Cup tie.

During these testing times, we can expect further changes with little warning.

In a letter sent last week, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters alerted clubs that they should plan for more matches being postponed or rearranged at short notice. And a joint statement from the Premier League, FA and EFL, restated the desire to complete the season in May.

So, who knows what twists and turns await? Could we yet see Leeds vs Southampton rearranged for Gameweek 19?

Shrewsbury, already without their manager Steve Cotterill for Tuesday’s tie, may suffer more ill-effects from coronavirus (COVID-19), or, by some miracle, could the Shrews beat Southampton on Tuesday? However unlikely, Leeds and Southampton would then both have a free weekend slot.

But that might be taking ‘Fantasy’ football a step too far. Sticking with what we know, here’s Legomané’s updated fixture ticker:

‘TBA’ fixtures Possible Gameweek Slots
Aston Villa v Everton24-to-28, 30-to-34, 37
Aston Villa v Tottenham Hotspur 26, 32, 37
Burnley v Fulham24-to-28, 30-to-34, 37
Everton v Manchester City24, 26, 27, 32, 37
Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur26, 32, 37
Leeds United v Southampton24-to-28, 30-to-34, 37
Manchester City v Southampton24, 26, 27, 32, 37

Triple Gameweek Scenario

Future Double Gameweeks, and possibly Triple Gameweeks, await Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

The two sides contest the EFL Cup final (coinciding with Gameweek 33), and are both still in the FA Cup and European competitions: should they progress to the latter stages, Spurs will potentially have to squeeze five matches into three available Gameweek slots, and Man City would have to fit five games into five free slots.

So no COVID-19 leeway and additional fixture shenanigans could lie ahead.

To Bench Boost or not to Bench Boost?

After the latest changes, a question facing many managers – and one tackled by our Scoutcast trio of Joe, Seb, and Karam – is now that Leeds and Southampton don’t have two matches in Gameweek 19, is it still worth using the Bench Boost?

The thing is, if you already Wildcarded in Gameweek 16, and you set up your team to Bench Boost, you need something bigger than this to back out from it. Because it’s one of the chips that if you don’t do it now, you will wait for another chance [and] you might have a lot of funds remain on your bench.

– Karam

Leeds-fan Seb added:

Ideally I want to be Bench Boosting all 15 players for double, unless someone crazy has got a great fixture, [but] often they might be more expensive, so typically you’re going to have medium to cheap assets on the bench, that’s the goal … On Leeds, so I think if you’ve been forced into this a little bit and you still want to use that Bench Boost, it’s not terrible. They’re playing Brighton at home … if you’ve got Bamford, Dallas, and Raphina on your bench maybe that is a Bench Boost – Bamford could score three!

However not all managers feel the same. Pro Pundit Az has been reduced to eight Double Gameweek players, scuppering any hopes he had for using the chip.

So, with fixture rescheduling putting any plans I had for a Bench Boost on hold, I am considering which chip I should use if any.

Instead the co-host of FPL BlackBox is contemplating using his Triple Captain. But Manchester United go to Liverpool with Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) a booking away from a one-match ban, and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is out of form. Although both sides have favourable second fixtures against Fulham and Burnley respectively.

Buying Manchester City Players

The other challenge facing Az and those like Pro Pundit Darren Wiles, who used their first Wildcard late to set up a Gameweek 19 Bench Boost, is how to accommodate Manchester City players?

The Citizens didn’t feature in Darren’s original plans, given that they had just a single Gameweek before their fixture with Aston Villa was rearranged.

But they’ve since come into form with an eye-catching 3-1 win away to Chelsea, and Pep Guardiola’s side have now kept six clean sheets in their last eight matches, giving them the best defensive record in the league.

Ahead of enticing homes matches against Crystal Palace and West Brom, Jan Sienkiewicz sides with the captain poll in backing De Bruyne with the armband:

De Bruyne is a truly world class player and it should be only a matter of time before he matches his outstanding underlying statistics. With two home games against non-top-six sides, Manchester City should continue their winning run and De Bruyne is expected to be at the heart of the action.

All this leads Darren, in his latest article, to contemplate a minus 12 to bring in Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), Rúben Dias (£5.8m), John Stones (£5.0m) and Michail Antonio (£6.2m) for Harry Kane (£11.1m), Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.8m) and Fabián Balbuena (£4.4m).

I am not rushing into any decisions but I feel multiple hits could be on the cards in order to get two or three Manchester City players in prior to the Double Gameweek and as part of my long term thinking.

– Darren

But the Live Hall of Fame No 2 remains undecided on whether to use the Bench Boost as it would include players like Che Adams (£6.0m), who is available for selection after recovering from concussion.

Tasty Transfers

In direct contrast to Darren’s multiple hit, Former FPL Champion Simon March used Marshmallows to demonstrate that patience is a virtue.

A graduate in behavioural economics, Simon referred to the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment in which children were given the choice of eating a marshmallow now or instead being given a second marshmallow in 15 minutes.

When they followed up 10 years later, the scientists found that the children who delayed gratification and waited for the second marshmallow, had scored better in their SATs, performed better in school generally and even had healthier BMIs.

Pro Pundit Simon likened this to wise FPL managers who save their chips for later in the season (traditionally the better time to play them), and the benefits of rolling a transfer.

Aside from giving you more flexibility in who you can sign, potentially shifting funds to different areas of your team, it also buys you an extra Gameweek of information and more thinking time.

Fantasy Favourite

A player both Darren and Az are tempted by is Michail Antonio. West Ham enjoy an appealing pair of fixtures in Gameweek 19, at home to Burnley and West Brom, but the question mark, as ever, is over Antonio’s fitness.

Ted Talks FPL offered some encouragement, observing that:

With Haller joining Ajax, West Ham must be confident that 1.9% owned Antonio must be back to full fitness, certainly in the short-term. He looks to be an excellent pick for Double Gameweek 19.

Pro Pundits Tom and Andy agreed, giving the Hammers striker the nod:

Michail Antonio is a bit of a favourite of mine and now he’s fit and got through 90 minutes I can’t leave him out. He’s averaging 0.47xG per 90 minutes so far this season. It’s down on 2019/20, but still excellent given his price. – Andy

I’m also backing Michail Antonio. Though he looks short of match fitness, he needs games, and as West Ham United’s only recognised striker, should see enough minutes across the two fixtures. – Tom

While Big Man Bakar, who was looking dashing in pink on the latest installment of The FPL Wire, reminded us of Antonio’s excellent early season form, despite the tricky start.

But is it too soon to take the plunge?

Team News

Frustratingly, as Colm Hayes noted in his press conference round-up, David Moyes did not provide a specific update on his injury-prone centre-forward, leaving Fantasy bosses wondering what to do.

In other news, Anthony Martial (£8.8m) and Pedro Neto (£6.0m) are doubts after suffering knocks in Gameweek 17. But both may still feature this weekend.

And Joel Matip (£5.4m) could return to Liverpool’s backline depending on how well he does in the next two training sessions.

Finally, new Fantasy Football Scout writer Jamie, ran the rule over Manchester United’s latest signing Amad Diallo and assessed the impact Robert Snodgrass (£5.7m) could make under Sam Allardyce at West Brom.

Community Competitions and Head-to-Head Fixtures

RedLightning rounded-up the latest Community mini-leagues and competitions in a hot topic yesterday.

The January to May League, which started scoring in Gameweek 17, remains open for those who want to track their progress until the end of the season. The code to join is h62bh1. The current leader is Denville Tyrell, who has risen from 29,903rd to 5,121st in the last two Gameweeks.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

    Any suggestions on best Mahrez replacement who have a double?

    A. Foden -unlikely to play both
    B. Grealish - Covid uncertainty
    C. El Ghazi - Covid uncertainty/rotation risk
    D. Maddison - Is he nailed to ply both/fully fit?
    E. Any other suggestions? Max 8.3

      Only decision I need to make now is whether to play Holding for his pretty sure 6 points of Dallas for potential double game week and some attacking returns ?

        What’s the deal with Leeds? Surely the DGW would need to be confirmed before the deadline?

          Some rumours of covid at Shrewsbury which means Leeds could still play Southampton.

          1. Netters2018
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Theres no way fpl would chuck it in after the deadline... it woulf just get left out of the game.

              If they can cancel games after deadline then they can add them too.

        Shrewsbury are back in traning now, their game this weekend is off and they have missed 3 weeks due to covid. Im certain that their fa cup game will go ahead as planned.

      Martinez (4.0)
      Robbo Zouma Coufal (Targett Alioski)
      Salah Bruno Son Soucek (Raphinha)
      Vardy Antonio Bamford

      A) go with this
      B) -4 to get Johnstone in and bench boost, with risk of Alioski not playing
      C) -8 to get Johnstone and upgrade Alioski, and then bench boost

        Is 8 DGW players too few?

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Quality over Quantity 😉

            • 9 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            How you fixed this week? I haven't really got caught up in DGW fever because of the form of some of the heavy hitters really. Difficult to decide on moves.

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Tbh I got lucky with Villa having DGW still. I have all DGw players.
              Kinda gave up last GW with 7 players only (32 points)

        2. greggles
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I have 9. I think it enough. The games at the moment are pretty low-scoring and a lot of the players look knackered.

      • egan

          Need help guys,
          Wilson or Watkins?

          and who is the most perfect goalkeeper for this GW? (doesn't matter how expensive he is)

          1. QUEN
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Wilson to be safe but Watkins if villa has covid free

        • Winston.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Would you BB this one?
          McCarthy, Justin, Bamford, Raphinha

          Thinking of switching McCarthy—>Mendy for -4, as Chelsea have DGW and good fixtures after that...worth it?

                      I’d go for Dias (I have him). Might be the less exciting in terms of potential attacking returns but he’s about as nailed on a starter as you get with Pep

                  Don't think Taylor will get 90 in either match tbh

                I have KDB & Sterling, but no Liverpool mids.

                Would it be worth -4 for either of these to Salah?

                Cheers!

                  No, keep city. Fixtures are insane, and many more doubles on the horizon.

                Final decisions. whether to TC, and choose between Salah and KDB. What say you? Currently:

                Martinez
                Cancelo / Stones / Justin
                Grealish / KDB (c) / Saka / Bruno / Salah
                Antonio / Bamford

                Subs: Button / Bednarek / Taylor / Brewster

                  Contemplating thr same, leaning towards TC kdb
                  If not now, then when? Specially as I still have BB & FH left too

                    Yes those are my thoughts too. All other chips remaining. TC seems best option over BB given relative weakness of bench. Will use WC to build for other chips

                Completely lost here. Need some help lads.

                Martinez
                Stones Dias Coufal
                KDB Son Fernandes Saka Soucek
                Kane Lacazette

                Leno Bamford Dallas Mitchel

                For Salah TC
                1) Kane Saka to Salah Davis (-4). Laca and Bamford upfront
                2) Kane Laca Saka to Salah Antonio Watkins (-8)

                suggestions for a cheap midfielder? bench fodder.

                Kane and Zaha --> KDB and Watkins for -4?

                Is it stupid to sell Grealish & Kane for Salah & Antonio?

                  Not entirely no.

                    Not a little worried about Antonio? Explosive player of course..

                    Would you do Bamford > Antonio for a -4?

                    1. potatoace

                      I am a little worried yes. I'm banking on him having at least 90plus mins to explode.

                      I wouldn't know what to do in your situation but I chose bringing in antonio over Bamford this week, if that helps

                    2. Kaptenen
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 15 days ago

                      Would def do Bamford to Antonio for free, but for a hit im not sure. Bamford could easily score against Brighton. If you fancy a little risk, go for it, Antonio is so explosive and has the fixtures to explode!

                  I'm facing similar issue. Tough one.

                    Yes it is, really like Grealish as an asset but feel like he must make way for Salah. Other option could be Robertson & Son --> Stones & Salah? Which one do you think is better?

                    1. Sensible Shocker
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      Thanks Kapt and potatoe. Helpful thoughts.

                      Kapt: I think you have Robertson there for a reason... the Grealish move looks better/safer to me.

                A) Kane - > Vardy

                B) Kane + Son - > KDB + Antonio (-4)

                      Sounds good, going for the BB instead.
                      Don't have much to lose with my rank so may go Cancelo or TAA (C) 😀
                      I somehow prefer the TC later in the season.

                Kdb TC?
                Got all chips left, so going for WC25 BB26 & FH later on
                Thoughts?

                  Can hold TC chip if not sure atm. Other chip plan is good.

                Brewster ---> 7.4 = Watkins/Wilson/Abraham/Robinson/Reid? 😀

                Not confident in either of them...
                Watkins unsure because of Villa situation, Wilson 2x away, Abraham unlikely to start and the others are only there because of the DGW.

                  Guessing you have BamBam already...maybe would try with Antonio

                    You're right, have Bamford but Antonio as well. That's why there are only poor options left 😀

                I'm going to captain Sterling.

                Which sounds outrageous, however, over his last 7 games he's only blanked twice, once against United and the other was that awful pen.

                He's scored 41 points in those 7 games vs KDB's 49. I'm not considering the what if he scored the pen scenario, as KDB would have more points too if that happened.

                KDB looked knackered though, Sterling was arguably lucky to even get off the bench last game, so he's had his rest.

                Will probably come back to haunt me when he gets 3 points over the 2 games, but got to be in it to win it eh?

                  I captained him on the FH... but I would do it again if I had him for the DGW.

                I only have Stones. I have Son and Kane and think selling them because they only have the single fixture could hurt because it is a great sgw fixture.

                But I am getting more and more tempted by Son & Kane > KDB & Vardy for a -8..
