Planning future FPL chip usage around upcoming Cup postponements

Now we have reached the half-way stage of the season, the number of ‘dead teams’ is growing and it is left to the committed Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers to fight it out for overall rank as well as those all-important mini-league positions.

This season, things are slightly different, in that we have multiple teams already with games in hand as a result of postponements. This gives active FPL managers added complications when it comes to planning.

We have a better (although still not yet fully formed) indication of which teams are likely to encounter further Blank Gameweeks due to FA Cup progression.

We also have Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, who will miss Gameweek 33 as a result of the League Cup final, and Fulham and Southampton, who were due to play them that week.

Keeping abreast of the Blank and Double Gameweek developments will be vital for success during the remainder of the season. Many FPL managers will have already deployed at least some of the chips available (second Wildcard, Bench Boost, Free Hit, Triple Captain). If you haven’t, then that could give you a huge advantage over the opposition if used to their full potential.

I have three of my four chips left in play for this last part of the season – the Bench Boost, Triple Captain and the second Wildcard. In normal seasons the chips feel important, but this year they feel like tiny FPL rockets which can either skyrocket your season, or blow up before takeoff, leaving you reeling.

Bench Boost

When Double Gameweek 19 was announced, my original thought was to play the Bench Boost chip. However, as we entered the run of fixtures preceding the Double, we saw multiple matches postponed and players forced to isolate.

This uncertainty of players and fixtures put me off playing the chip. When a Gameweek lasts for a week it is impossible to account for the week that follows the Gameweek deadline and thus I held onto it.

Now comes the big decision as to when to deploy the chip.

So far this season I have benched 167 FPL points, where the player wasn’t substituted in to the team. This includes seven Gameweeks where my bench has scored more than 11 points (11, 14, 15, 16, 18, 18 again and 19 points). Given that I am 190 points behind the current leader at an overall rank of 44,000, those points are definitely missed opportunities.

Three of my benches so far this season

The success of my benches this season has made me consider playing my Bench Boost chip in a single Gameweek rather than a Double. My team structure this season has been to ensure I’m never struggling to get a full team out if games are postponed after the deadline or players are out on short notice.

The ramifications are there are always benching headaches and most of the time there are multiple FPL points sat on my bench. There are a number of Gameweeks coming up over the rest of the season where my whole squad looks to have the potential to return and a single Gameweek could provide me with an even better set of fixtures than for a squad I could build for a Double Gameweek .

Triple Captain

For the last couple of weeks leading up to the Double Gameweek I was planning to trust Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) with my Triple Captain chip. Most seasons my Triple Captain ends up being someone from the red side of Liverpool. They have been consistent in both their form and starts and always seem to provide a safe bet for the armband. Last season Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) had the privilege of wearing my Triple Captain armband and that was a success.

Why FPL managers should focus on the short-term this season

However, Salah blanked against West Brom in Gameweek 15, blanked against Newcastle in Gameweek 16 and again at Southampton in Gameweek 17. And he is now on a run of five Premier League matches without an attacking return. That suggests holding the Triple Captain was probably a wise idea for my team.

Unlike the Bench Boost, which could do well for me in a Single Gameweek, I will be looking for a Double Gameweek to play the Triple Captain chip. However, it’s not just about the Gameweek or even the fixtures, the form of the player going in to the week is vital as we are seeing right now with Salah.

While I wouldn’t be opposed to giving Salah the Triple Captain armband in a later Double Gameweek should Liverpool get one, his form would have to improve.

Kane and Son both return in new formation as Spurs breeze past Sheffield United 3

I think, unsurprisingly I know, I’ll look to Triple Captain Harry Kane (£11.1m) this season. Spurs already have a game in hand against Aston Villa which should have been played in Gameweek 17, and they will have to play their Gameweek 33 fixture against Fulham at another time, due to appearing in the League Cup final. Therefore, there will almost certainly be at least one Gameweek between now and the end of the season where Kane and Spurs will play twice.

Given Kane’s form so far this season in terms of goals, assists and bonus points I struggle to see myself triple captaining anyone other than him.

Second Wildcard

This chip has the potential to be the most important left in my arsenal. Playing the second Wildcard at the right moment is key not only for the immediate boost to points it can provide but also in terms of long-term strategy and planning.

The second half of this season will likely throw up some unpredictable moments due to the pandemic. It will also throw up changes to the fixture schedule as a result of the FA Cup which we as FPL managers will have to keep track of, especially as draws for the fourth and fifth rounds are happening at the same time.

My current squad feels solid for the next few Gameweeks at least without the need for any immediate surgery so the second Wildcard will remain safely in my back pocket until it is needed.

There is the possibility that we have a Blank Gameweek later on this season containing very few players we would want to own them long term. Having already used my Free Hit chip, I will likely look to dead-end my team in the build-up to that Gameweek, ensuring that I have a decent side for the week, and then hit the Wildcard to rebuild for the back end of the season.

At this stage my team value is up at £104.6m allowing me to access more of the highly valued players as well as keeping a solid bench. I had for a brief moment thought of Wildcarding around Blank Gameweek 18, however many of the players in my current team would have had to be sold and the value in them would have been lost too. While this may not seem important, it is if you want to buy the player back again as they cost more to own than what you sold them for.

Subsequently, it seems sensible to do this towards the end of the season where hopefully the situation with the pandemic is clearer and there will be less chance of postponements. This means I’ll be able to invest less in my bench due to team value being less important by that stage.

I’ll be eagerly awaiting the FA Cup results in Gameweeks 19 and 20 and their impact on FPL Gameweeks to pick the perfect moment to play the Wildcard chip.

Final thoughts

We are coming to the most important part of the FPL season. This is the time where casual players often fail to prepare for the Blank and Double Gameweeks, or have already used their chips.

We also have half a season’s worth of knowledge and understanding on teams and players, meaning we can make more informed decisions. Early moves now for players who have the form and fixtures to last until the end of the season, or even better form, fixtures and something to play for can give FPL managers an edge on opponents.

Hold on to those transfers, don’t knee-jerk in players, and hold it out as close to the deadline as your nerves can stand to have the best knowledge of any changes to the Gameweek or the players clubs have available to them.

Most importantly, plan for those chips, but be flexible. The game is changing week-on-week and so too should our FPL strategies. I’ve stopped planning for the long term. I look at it and make decisions that suit both the short and long-term, because it’s less frustrating if matches are moved or players are unavailable.

    Any Man United fans, how nailed on is Luke Shaw?

    I want to save 0.6 million and choose him over AWB but surely Solskjaer will start Telles in at least a few league games before the end of the season.

    1. The Suspended One

      Nailed

    2. waldo666
      • 10 Years

      Bit of a tough one, the way Shaw is playing atm makes him almost undropable for mine. Telles is handy though and the threat will remain.

    3. Pukki Blinders

      Shaw won’t be dropped in this sort of form... when his form drops is an unknown though Ole does love him

    4. COVID-CASUAL

        Not a Man Utd fan but hasn’t he played every EPL game this season where he’s fit?

            In the last 5 games that Iheanacho has started, Barnes has scored in 4 of them...

            Sounds like Barnes may be the man to step up while Vardy is out.

                  True story

          • HellasLEAF
            • 11 Years

            Who will benefit most from De Bruyne absence. Thinking Foden??

            1. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              Not sure anyone will in a big way given you don't have the best chance creator in the league playing. Man City have averaged 2.4 goals per game over the last two seasons with him playing vs. 0.9 without.

              Their defensive qualities shouldn't be impacted much and they are playing three teams that struggle to score. So I think a triple up in defence in theory has the most upside.

              1. mojoindojo
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                That's shocking dip.

            2. GREEN JUMPERS
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 3 days ago

              I'm thinking West Brom

              1. G-Whizz
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                😆

            3. COVID-CASUAL
                1 month, 3 days ago

                I’m starting to lean that way rather than Gundo. See what the FA cup brings though

              • Reeker
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Probably Foden but only because he'll play more. Think everyone might suffer a bit when with De Bruynes creativity is off the pitch

            4. Alisson WondHaaland
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              After this GW, which one would you sell?

              A) Bamford
              B) Antonio
              C) Watkins

              Keep in mind Leeds have a potential DGW vs Soton and Villa vs Spurs or Everton

              1. Salan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                No one.

              2. Sun Jihai
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I think Watkins is probably the worst finisher of the three so really want to see a better showing vs. NEW. If Grealish gets his YC, I'd be concerned about Watkins for the following GW.

                Bamford I think could be a season keeper but again need to see a step up from Leeds next week vs. NEW.

                Antonio doesn't have the best fixtures, no DGW and will probably get injured again soon!

                • 5 Years

                none

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Play 3.

              Robertson
              James
              Coufal
              Dallas
              Soucek

              On Robertson, James, and Soucek. Probably. Gonna end up with Robertson, James and Dallas playing and benching Soucek.

              I think Robertson is blanking but you know if you own a 7 million defender you should probably play them.

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I think your choices are correct. If Zaha is out I would probably play Coufal ahead of Robbo. I'm in a similar position, think Robbo blanks but can't bring myself to bench him over Coufal.

                yeah correct order but im still thinking myself too whether playing robbo or coufal

              How to catch up with 200 point on my mini-league?
              Just play the save game or pick 2 or 3 punt?

              thinking like Perez-Foden-Ziyech-Rashford as differential or is it a backward step

                • 1 Year

                No way!
                Don't try to get the additional 200 points in one go!
                I'd suggest to have the template team where you have most of 2 city Def's, KdB, Kane Salah Son. And then try to play clever with rest of your 4-5 picks.

                Reduce the gap first. Still 19 GWs to go and maybe 2/3 chips as well. KdB and Vardy out has provided a good oppotunity to get differentials like Gundo/Foden/Sterling/Madders/Barnes. Pick two/three of them in your team and try to get the gap down as much as possible before going for the jugular.

              Wood(AVL) or

                Have you watched how Mane and Liverpool plays lately though?

                  Yes but a good differential I feel

                Go watch a Liverpool game and let me know if you still want Mane

                I'd want to see much better form from LIV first. It's high risk to bring in an expensive player that isn't really performing from a team out of sorts.

              I’m really stuck on what to do with my team. I could do with a help from you chaps;

              Martinez
              Zouma Coufal Stones
              Salah KDB* Foden Bruno
              Kane Bamford Antonio

              Forster Dallas Pieters Romeu

              1FT & 1m ITB

              A) KDB ➡ Foden
              B) KDB ➡ Sterlo
              C) KDB ➡ Grealish/Maddison
              D) KDB Bamford ➡ Sterlo Cavani -4

                A) KDB ➡ Gundo*

                1 month, 2 days ago

                C but Barnes over Madds. Grealish on 4 YCs if you want to take that risk

              3. No Salah
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                You already have Foden?
                Go for cancelo as city DBL defence and bag three easy clean sheets in next three.

                • 11 Years

                KDB->Son.
                Romeu could be upgraded to Soucek/Grealish/Raphina with the extra cash.

              5. Differential (c)
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                KdB to Grealish. I think the other city slot should be given to a defender in the future. So 2 D and 1 M, not 2M and 1 D.

              6. WE GO FOR IT
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Zouma needs fixing if he has lost his place and KdB of course.

                Madders is a good differential. Wouldn't double up City mids.
                Cancelo or Dias for Zouma maybe ?

                Keep Bamford. Newcaslte game is good this week and might get a DGW in 23.

            10. Differential (c)
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Anyone else feel like after using BB there's this dumb problem of trying to redistribute more funds from bench to the XI? Very annoying. Previous seasons we didn't have to care because the DGW was at the very end of the season, so we didn't need to plan after. This season we have to take money off Areola, Lowton and Dallas on the bench. A real pain.

                There should be DGW37 as usual

                WC out of it ?

                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  Don't want to use WC just yet, need more info on DGW 26 first.

                    you don’t really have that much money in your bench and having options isn’t a bad thing with the fixture congestion, plus KDB out and Gundogan in means money isn’t an issue until you WC ... but a Fulham keeper ? 😉

                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 2 days ago

                      Fair, yeah probably just the keeper thats the issue.
                      Plan is to do Lowton/Dallas to Mitchell if I have a spare transfer.

              3. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 6 Years

                my bench is areola cresswell smith rowe and lowton. only areola to dowgrade, happy to keep the rest. maybe lowton to mitchell.

                Yep, as a placeholder. It's not like we have too many options.

                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  How about Sterling as a replacement?

                  1. Holmes
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    Decent punt.

              Best kdb and vardy replacements here? Kane/son/Sterling/gundo/Maddison all seem good options. Not sure which moves to go for this gw.

              Martinez
              Robbo zouma stones
              Salah kdb Bruno saka soucek

              1. Holmes
                • 7 Years

                Vardy to Kane and Kevin to Sterling/Son will probably do the job.

                  Gundo over sterling?

                  1. Holmes
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    maybe, not sure what you will do with remaining cash 😀

                      • 7 Years

                      You can upgrade Soucek to Son I guess

              If you were only going to keep one from Coufal/ Dallas- Who would it be?
              WC'ing in 25 so may change again but which of the above would u keep for now?

              Robbo, Stones, Coufal/Dallas, Cancelo is what I am looking at for the next 3/4 games.

                Coufal

              2. Holmes
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I would keep Coufal. Not a fan of Leeds defense.

                Is Robbo really worth the money? Justin will probably do at least as well. Even Bedranek not far off. Just my thinking...

                I think Gundo has a better chance, but both probably 70% start.

              2. Ajax Hamsterdam

              I was all gungho on 3 MC player, but without KDB are they going to play as well?

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                probably not but need a city attack versus west brom and sheffield

                1. Pukki Blinders
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  Why? Defensive teams, I’d rather an extra City defender than attacker

                  1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    w brom concede goals, a lot of them. possible high ceiling for a city attack. defence great option too obviously.

                • 5 Years

                I think City will still be good. Next few games are all pretty lowball games anyway.

                There was some stat that CTY only score 0.9 goals per game without KDB as opposed to be about 1.5. Perhaps Foden is the go to player?

                    Which to buy this week with 1 FT, Son or Barnes?

                    Planning to buy both in the coming 2 weeks, but just thinking of which one to buy first. Son seems safer with higher ownership, but he is facing Liverpool and Barnes is facing Everton

                    Is Rashford is good choice vs SHU?
                    I'm between playing Bamford or upgrade Anguissa to Rashford and play 352.

                      Yes, he is. But I perhaps wouldn't transfer him in now.
