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.

    Transfer KDB now to avoid price drop or wait to make a more informed decision of who to get in?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Definitely wait as outcome of FA cup games will give us more information on when double game weeks will take place.

    Best Replacements for Vardy and KDB pls?

    1. norab
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Leaning Son and Kane

    2. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Perhaps the intriguing thing is that their in-form replacements are MILES cheaper than they are which makes a straight swap somewhat uncomfortable.

      1. The Hunt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        (I've got those two above obviously!)

    3. lugs
      • 3 Years

      Rodriguez & DCL/Richarlison after this week could be a good shout

      1. baines is god
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Gundogan is a massive threat from open play and now probably on pens.

        Kane the best striker option by a distance for me too

  3. baines is god

    Not been on here much of the day, any new players been thrown up into the mix as replacement for KDB?

    Ok enough simply to do the sensible move of KDB > Gundo?

    Allows Wilson > Kane the week after or for a hit this week.

    Cheers gents.

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I’ve been all over the map on which mf...

      Gundogan even though I expect them to play worse without Kev, but still on pens.

      Grealish who is the best pick but 3 games to go with 4ycs

      Barnes has better stats than Maddison.. but Maddison in a purple patch...

      But yeah getting Kane next week for sure

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers bud! Good reasoning for each there, I’ve already done the Gundo move and pleased with it, thanks again 😉

  7. ItOnlyTook9Years
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    KDB to Salah this week?
    Or switch to Gundo and wait a week?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      gundo then salah

  8. Klip Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    I've fallen behind due to not playing my Wildcard. Luckily I didn't have KDB. Any advice on my next moves?

    Martinez
    Coufal / Chilwell / Cancelo
    Salah (c) / Son / Bruno / Foden
    Kane / Bamford / Antonio

    Bench: Foster, Dier, Bissouma, Douglas

    A. Chilwell --> Stones
    B. Anything else?

    1. baines is god
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      keep Chilwell decent fixtures and attacking returns. Foden to gundogan makes sense especially if gundogan's on pens.

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years

      Wilson to Wqtkins

    2. jbenny1107
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Gotta have either Kane or Son or both

      1. baines is god
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        gambling against them. Son I don't mind not owning as much but Kane with pens is a bigger risk. Spurs 5/6 tough fixtures though and their Expected goals in games under Mourinho is not that high

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          It's the tougher games that proved good for Kane and Son though ?

          1. baines is god
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            so far that's happened to be the case, but no evidence it will continue. The only logic to follow that's accurate is harder games, less expected goals, less points for attacking players.

    3. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I wud leave sterling and do double City defense
      Then, get Kane for Brewster

    4. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      AWB to Shaw

      1. baines is god
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        do you think Shaw is nailed on? Might rotate with Telles. AWB more cert to start but less attacking threat and more expensive

        1. jimmy.floyd
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Nailed, but only injury prone

    5. jbenny1107
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Need some Leicester too

    6. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Chilwell to Stones
      Sterling to Son

      1. baines is god
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        any chance Sterling ends up on pens again?

        1. jimmy.floyd
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Gundo

  11. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    is sterling such a bad replacement for kdb? would be for a 2 weeks punts only then would replace with salah. or best to go foden/gundo straight away and keep longer term? need city attack v west brom and sheffield.

    1. Pukki Blinders

    Who is the striker that can be captained this GW?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        For Vardy replacement and a differential
        Would you get Martial and C?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          100% no for me.

          sorry not keen on any strikers choice this gw. may as well go kane

      Thank you!

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        yes

    • Mooster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Is anyone else thinking about bringing in Cavani instead of Antonio as a Vardy replacement?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        not nailed enough imo. could work though

      2. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Not a Vardy owner, but yes, I'm thinking about bringing in Cavani.

      3. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He will be rotated in this busy period is my only worry

      4. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year

        Not fit enough to play every game

      5. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        I really want to but fear rotation.

    • Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Gundo the best replacement for KDB?

      My other mids are Fernandes, Son, Grealish & Soucek.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        really not sure about him. why does he start to score all of a sudden?

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          It is mainly a fixture pick for those next 3.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            for his price why not 🙂

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        This is what I’m wondering above, has to be that simple really, reckon I’ll do KDB to Gundo, he’s on pens, scoring from open play, be daft not to really. Other considerations are the likes of Barnes, Maddison, Pogba maybe, but I’m gonna go Gundo.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          He just gives flexibility, gives you plenty of $ in the bank should you need to target a premium player in the next few.

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 28 days ago

            For sure, I’ve just done the move before the price changes, pleased with it. Gundo is now in 🙂

      3. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Just did Raphinha and KDB to Gundo and Son if that helps?

    • Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Play one of Coufal, Holding or Dier?

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Coufal

        Holding

    • Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Gundogan to play a deeper role while KDB is out... What do we think?

      1. UNDERWORLD7

      Would you wait for Man City's Cup game before moving out KDB and risk price drop or take risk on Pep's Rotation?

      Planing to swap KDB for one of his Teammates.

      A. Gundogan
      B. Sterling
      C. Foden
      D. Silva

        Just done A, bench is very strong ex-BB if anything bad happens

        1. kobewan

          Certainly Gundogan will be playing next 3 GWs right?

      Does this stand to reason?...Manchester City without KDB & Leicester City without Vardy are fundamentally emasculated hombres.

      Ergo, don't go looking for sub-alternatives within their fold...look elsewhere.

        Leicester yes, that’s why I decided against Maddison, but as for Gundo I’m still confident he’ll do well

        I tend to agree. That's why I'm leaning toward double United attack. Most managers will captain Bruno in GW20, so you'll need a second United asset to gain anything on your rivals.

        Their fixtures are so good that even without Kdb,Vardy i think it's worth to get a midfielder.

        Has had a bit of interest, could pay off nicely.

    • PogBruno

      Start Wood or Soucek?

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years

        Soucek

      2. Peaky Blinders

        Soucek against Crystal Palace, villa has a better defence

    • waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Was all set to ship TAA this GW but then the KDB issue arose, KDB will be moved on, the question is do I still proceed with TAA to City defender (of which I have none currently) for a hit?

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah probably the way to go, one of those ones that I have had to put off for a few weeks now, really wish I just took the hit before the double.

        Unfortunately you should have made the move in the lead up to dgw

        I’d still do it now if that money can help with another transfer

        Thanks FPL towers for rewarding those who actually want the current GW to finish before making transfers for the next!

        They are just making it up as they go along now. This season something has changed. Meslier went up last week after a day of negative transfers and Mane hasn’t had hardly any transfers out since much more brought him in for the double so not sure where that drop came from.

              Ah sorry!.I think it has been like this for several seasons - midway in the season it seem more random.

                This is my 15th year playing FPL and there has never been a true and complete rhyme or reason for price changes. I've emailed the tower many times pointing out absolute travesties. Two players with near exact prices and ownership levels yet one would rise or fall differently then the other. Player A costs 9.0 w/20% ownership. Player B costs 9.0 w/20% ownership. Player A is bought by 400k and stays the same price. Player B is bought by 150k and goes up in price 0.1. There should be a formula. We live in the computer age. Factors should include: ownership % and the net number of sales/purchases(per week or on the fly). The written program would automatically figure it out. The higher the ownership %, the more purchases it would take to drive the price up. Vice versa. It would at least give the manager a mathematical chance to gauge decisions. One could avoid the temptation to transfer earlier than you'd want. In or out. There is no need to be pulled into such shenanigans. I find the people in control of price changes to be pompous.

          All this daily wailing and gnashing of teeth about price changes makes me think that The Alcoholic's Prayer is good advice:

          "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference."
