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.

        Thinking about the same move.

        Should I do it tonight or?

        Yeah could be good, Sterling has been ticking along slowly...

        I've had sterling all season, had a bad spell put been doing well of late

    • The Suspended One

      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah I think Im going Harvey Barnes over Grealish. Don’t want to buy before he plays and not liking BUR(A) followed by Sou, Wham, Arsenal based on current def form

      1. Sid07

        Thoughts on Maddison

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I’d like the one scoring the goals rather than the one setting them up. All he really has on Barnes is corners, Xa from open play is Barnes and Xg is significantly Barnes

          1. Milkman Bruno
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Not concerned how they will perform without Vardy?

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                He’s been looking his age this year, relying on pens, I think Maddison, tielmans will set them up just fine

                1. Milkman Bruno
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Best of luck with it

            Honest question, how do Leicester look without Vardy? Only game I watched was against CPY and they were average.

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              That’s the 100m question

              I think I like their chances against Everton, Leeds, Fulham

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Barnes is always a poor game or two away from an early sub or even a benching

            • 1 Year
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Iheanacho will come on and steal the goal show. Maddison to set up and dead ball.

          Who will you have ?

          KDB and Brewster to Son and Bamford -4 looks like a juicy transfer to make but would have to be done today

          I’m better off just waiting until closer to deadline to do something else right?

          1. Camino Aleatorio
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Your gonna miss the Brewdog haul. It’s gonna happen someday

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years

              He'll be in the Championship when that happens..........

          2. GREEN JUMPERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Those do look ideal transfers, so if you're going to be priced out, I'd do it. Leeds aren't in the cup anymore.

        5. Drogba Legend
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Fabs
          Chill - Robbo - Dias - Stones
          KDB* - Salah - Bruno - Soucek
          Bam - Vardy*

          Fodder - Brewster - Dale Stephens - Fodder

          1FT, .5 ITB

          Best replacements for Vardy + KDB for a hit? I'm .2 short of Kane and Sterling

        6. Davros
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Is KDB price protected as looks he might drop tonight?

          1. Camino Aleatorio
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            You will get one drop and that’s all

            1. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Why only one?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Don't think so

        7. JollyGoodYellows
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Worth doing KDB > Grealish tonight?
          Was thinking of Maddison, Barnes and Gundo but surely Grealish is a better pick with his underlying stats?

          1. aleksaa2
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            No, he can get a YC tomorrow. Don't make early transfers.

        8. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years

          Any risk in doing KDB => Ilkay tonight?

          1. manu4life99
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Only the risk that any 1 of your 15 players could get injured or contract covid before deadline. Other than that, no risk at all

          2. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Ilkay gets injured
            Ilkay gets COVID
            Game gets called off due to COVID
            One of your other players gets injured or COVID

            1. Lucky Z
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Last one is irrelevant as KDB is already injured and he has the highest value. Thank you though!

            Depends on your bench strength

        9. MGD
          • 4 Years

          Kdb to Gundo now and save 0.2 or wait?

          1. GREEN JUMPERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Wait. Since you can, pay the extra dough to be more certain of playing players. Unless one of them looks like falling/rising twice. There is that, I suppose.

          2. Guru Mediation
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Wait - that 0.2m will mean nothing at the end of the season

              Cheers I was set on B 1
              Any reason for Maguire?
              Shaw seems to hoover up the bonus.

            I wouldnt take a hit to remove Soucek when he's your 8th attacker. maybe on a free though.

            I prefer Justin as he's more attacking.

            1. aleksaa2
              • 4 Years

              It is, he made like a 100 transfers in one minute

          3. Corona is not good 4 U
              2 months, 23 days ago

              In gameweek 3 he made 10.454 transfers. This is about a trasfer every minute (60 x 24 x 7 = 10.080).

              We have many pensioners who do not know what to do with their lives. Maybe this is one of them.

              We had an employee in our company who came back to work a week after his retirement. He treated his successor like a trainee and gave him orders, for example to make coffee. It was so bad that he had to be banned from the house and the police had to be called.

              There are already crazy people.

                Play Martial, bench Trent 😀

                I can easily afford Kane. I planned to sell Martial and Bamford for Kane and Vardy over the coming week before I knew about Vardy.

                  Haha, maybe Ings if he gets a double in GW23? Kane is an obvious transfer, yeah.

                Trent. No plan yet. Will see if something obvious comes up. Maybe Digne. Or someone cheaper if I need a midfield upgrade. No rush since I have so much money ITB and a deep enough team.

                I think ABC. United play against Sheffield and has a good chance to get a clean sheet. Saka is in form and got 39 points from the last 5 games. Bamford will play against Newcastle and Newcastle is in poor form.

                A C D
                You should have your strikers in there. Then AWB for clean sheet potential and attacking assists/returns

                A) Robertson and Raphinha -> Veltman and Son for - 4
                B) Adams -> Antonio for free

                Which teams are likely to have DGW before GW26?

                Trying to target those teams with FTs

                1. aleksaa2
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  Teams who get through in the 6th round of FA Cup.

                2 months, 23 days ago

                Is Foden being overlooked as a KDB replacement since Gundogan has scored a few goals lately? No assists. Foden is generally more involved in the attack, could end up playing more now, though Gundo is likely on penalties. Are potential pens enough to sway this?

                  • 5 Years

                  I reckon Foden will be the next train leaving the station midweek

                  Yeah a good option.

                  Any one of those City mids could be good though.

                  Sterling Gundogan Foden Bilva Torres and even ‘21 points’ Mahrez.

                  I am worried about Man City without KDB. Obviously, Foden and Gundo are not expensive punts though.

                Mark & Az, thank you both for the show - week in week out, especially during this pain in the behind lockdown, it is a source of genuine laughter and insight.

                Quick message for Az - ignore the snarky messages bro, real long time players and enthusiastics (the geeks) are rooting for you and we've all had these kind of seasons where every decision feels wrong. Chin up pal!

                  Feels remiss for me to not give FFScout a shout also.. still to me the only forum I check in on day in day out

                  When membership, and members area content, etc first came in i was typically sceptical.. but the site is still as great as it ever was and the balance between free stuff and members only is spot on
