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.

      Seems nailed after El Ghazi being benched for barkley

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Risky I think

    3. acidicleo

      Will rotate with el ghazi..

    4. Chilli Heatwave
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      He is far from it, Trezeguet back in the squad this week, he is much better tracking back and is likely to take a lot of minutes

      1. Chilli Heatwave
        • 2 Years

        And that’s before discussing el ghazi

        Actually this is a good point. Definitely leaves Cash exposed when he doesn't track back

        1. Chilli Heatwave
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Agreed, could be traore against defensive teams and trez against top teams who are going to dominate possession

    5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years

      Risky. El Ghazi may start a few. Trezeguet will be fit again.

    United top of the fixture ticker for next 5.. KDB to Rashford?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…

      I wouldn't bring in Rashford. He has been poor and not playing on the left where he is most effective

        Better as striker

          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Record for most offside at 4 times in one half doesn't suggest he is better up front

            Only one outside cavani who can actually finish up there..

        2. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          He’s worse as striker, not intelligent enough to play that role. That said, neither is martial.

      Wait and watch

    Who is the better defender for next 6 or so games regardless of price

    A - Maguire (better fixtures for CS)

    For anyone who cares about Chorley vs Wolves effect on DGW26/BGW29, the answer is...not much.

    If a miracle occurs, that won't change anything about GW29 yet as Wolves face Man City. Given City's pool is all lower-league opposition not named "Wigan" or "Middlesborough", that game will in all likelihood blank regardless of today's result.

    If Wolves win, they face the winner of Southampton/Arsenal in round 5.

          Based on what OGS said last time on Bruno being rested then no I don't think so

          OGS says Bruno Fernandes doesn't need rest: "Not tired, no chance. Is one of the players who covers ground in every game. Very good at recovering+ recharging his batteries. If he had scored with free-kick on Sun he would have been lauded as best player in PL. Has been immense"

    Now that the spell's been lifted, surely Salah must be an armband option this coming GW? I'm no witch doctor but I'd guess that he's simply been wandering around in a general malaise with little or no energy since before Christmas but now that the curse has ended he'll be feeling like the strongest, fastest, fittest man alive which will be pretty bad news for Hugo Lloris.

      2. Apwilkin

        All of these, but might consider DCL over Antonio.

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years

          1. Apwilkin
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            They’ve got some nice fixtures and look to be coming healthy as a squad again. Antonio clearly a good pick as well and it does free up cash for you to use elsewhere.

      4. Neither - but Watkins if you must
      5. Chilwell, but consider Man U defender
      6. Mo Salah

        Why Ings?

      2. Chilli Heatwave

        Yeah think I do want to upgrade Wilson, not sure who, will keep an eye on I go

    Sterling as a punt or safer pick of Stones for 3rd City player?

    1. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Punt...2 city def safer ..

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      DEF

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sterling usually steps it up without Kev

    Cavani owners, anyone considering captaining?

    1. GREEN JUMPERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Vice this week. Sticking with Bruno.

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Amazingly I’m considering buying him; they look much better with him making the runs that rashy and Tony won’t

      But owning is enough

  24. Pedersen
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Can't decide between KdB to
    A Gundo
    B Maddison
    C Grealish
    D Son
    E Barnes

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      A of those, purely on next 3 games

    2. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Same dilemma..
      All good options..I may wait on Son for 1 week..

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      D no brainer

      Fixture proof

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      D

  25. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    Would you get Gundo first as a KDB replacement or someone like Son or Rash?

    Will be replacing Soucek the week after so its just about who is the best to get first.

    1. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Ah I’m also doing Vardy to Kane this week

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      It’s a trap!

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Gundo this week Son next

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      In the same boat
      I’m pretty set on wc gw25 so these moves will be until then
      I’m leaning towards Gundy due to lack of forwards

      So Kdb and Rodrigo to Gundy and Kane

      If I went Son instead I’d be 0.1 short or Ings and nothing much around that price

      Who are your strikers?

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Will have Kane Bam and Adams, Adams goes next wee
        K - may get Antonio

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Yeh fair. I’ve got bam and Antonio now so same front 3
          Hard to know re city. Gundy has the form
          Sterling and Foden could be the real winners

  26. Lemonade
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Hello there, I was wondering why Tielemans is so rarely brought up as an fpl option?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Not even best option at Leicester at that price

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Rival has him which is odd, and he’ll have him coming off the bench for DCL, damn 15 pointer! He’s sporadic, but an under the radar option for sure

      3. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Super inconsistent in fpl, much better irl

        1. Lemonade
            2 months, 18 days ago

            he is quite underrated irl

        2. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          No point to even consider him when Barnes/Maddison are there

          His stats are really bad

      4. GREEN JUMPERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Which combo for next 4-5 GWs?

        A) Gundo & Kane
        B) Sterling & Antonio

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          A

        2. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          B but close

        3. acidicleo
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          2nd is more expensive ryt?

          1. GREEN JUMPERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 18 days ago

            About 0.5 more, but no problem (for a change) with KDB money.

      5. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Future Man City? Fernandinho, Walker, Aguero, Mahrez and KDB won't be around forever....

        Ederson
        Cancelo Stones Dias Mendy
        Bernardo Rodri Foden
        Torres Jesus Sterling

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Can't see Mendy or Jesus ever being 1st choice.

        2. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          You think Mendy Rodri and Jesus outlast Kev?

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            I think you have identified the three areas where they need to spend big next summer. LB they should have got Chilwell. But Ndidi and Haaland should be who they go for. Even if it costs £225m

        can someone explain trent free kick yesterday? why isnt hee shooting directly, theres no better place than that.

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          He’s taking a gap year

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Wasn't an ideal position. Too close to the goal to get the ball up and down. Taking a touch scatters the wall and creates space.

        3. GREEN JUMPERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Changes angle of the wall, but did wonder the same. Not the greatest execution.

      7. THL33
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Seeing as James has fallen out of favour thinking about getting Apziliqueta in instead of a second city defender so I can avoid pep roulette, thoughts?

          1. Coys96
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Genius.

            • 1 Year
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Sounds like another transfer waiting to happen. I would avoid. If you don't want double City, go for a Man Utd defender instead

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Out of favor? What makes you think that?

          4. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Eh ... no. James will be first choice now injury cleared up.
