The best FPL players to sign for Double Gameweeks 24 and 25

Fantasy Premier League has presented managers with a fantastic opportunity to make up ground with the announcement of Double Gameweeks 24 and 25.

Everybody’s squad is different but, right now, I am looking to invest heavily to maximise my coverage of players with a total of three fixtures across those two rounds.

In this article, I will pick out some of the key assets I am considering signing now so they are sat in my team ready for another period of bumper Gameweeks.

HOW I DID IN GAMEWEEK 22

WHAT ARE THE DOUBLE GAMEWEEK FIXTURES?

Double Gameweek 24

  • Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur (home) and Everton (away)
  • Everton v Fulham (home) and Manchester City (home)
  • Burnley v Crystal Palace (away) and Fulham (home)
  • Fulham v Everton (away) and Burnley (away)

Double Gameweek 25

  • Leeds United v Wolves (away) and Southampton (home)
  • Southampton v Chelsea (home) and Leeds United (away)

Already, these fixtures present a great opportunity to climb up the ranks since I already have a total of seven Double Gameweekers in my squad and three free transfers available before Double Gameweek 24, which will allow me to add a couple more players from those teams.

So let’s take a look at the best possible transfer targets from each of the sides with an extra fixture in the near future.

Manchester City

By now, most Fantasy managers already have three Manchester City players and I’m no exception. I’m pretty happy with Ruben Dias (£6.1m), João Cancelo (£6.0m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.9m) as my trio but several managers have different combos that include the likes of John Stones (£5.2m) or Sterling.

I still think Sterling is a bit too expensive for someone who was benched twice in the last six matches but given the lack of decent heavy-hitters available in midfield right now and the possibility of giving him the armband in the Double Gameweek, I would definitely stick with him if I had him, even if there is a decent chance he will get rotated with the likes of Phil Foden (£6.1m), Ferran Torres (£6.9m) or Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m).

The same can be said for any City player (except maybe for Dias) but after Kevin De Bruyne’s (£11.8m) injury, Gundogan has less competition to worry about and seems to be in the form of his life so I’m hoping he will play both matches. The fact that he could be on penalties and is ridiculously priced at £5.9 million makes him a much better pick than Sterling in my opinion.

That said, all we can do is stick with the three players we already have and hope that we hit the jackpot in another round of the infamous Pep roulette. If I didn’t already have Dias and Gundogan in my squad, they would definitely be my main transfer targets from Guardiola’s team.

EVERTON

Salah and blanks again as Brighton defensive assets shine ahead of good run 1

Despite having two home matches in Double Gameweek 24, one of them is against Manchester City and the Toffees also have tough matches in Gameweek 23 (at Old Trafford) and in Gameweek 25 (at Anfield). 

For this reason, I am not super excited about their potential for the near future and the only assets I will consider from them are the usual suspects Lucas Digne (£6.1m) and Calvert-Lewin.

It is hard to see clean sheets for Everton in the next four matches with the exception of their home match against Fulham so, despite Digne’s incredible record as one of the most attacking full-backs in the Premier League, I think there are better options to pick from other teams. 

However, if they also get an extra fixture in Gameweek 26, I might change my mind and get the French defender in ahead of Double Gameweek 24.

Calvert-Lewin, on the other hand, seems like a much better pick given the lack of decent forwards with two matches in Double Gameweek 24. It is very likely I will get him in for Ollie Watkins (£6.3m) and I think there is the possibility he will be my captain since he will probably play 180 minutes, unlike most Manchester City assets.

BURNLEY

Burnley has by far the best schedule of all teams between Gameweek 23 and Gameweek 25 and investment in their defence seems like a smart decision. Even though Nick Pope (£5.5m) should be the default option for almost everyone, I already have Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) who also plays twice in Gameweek 24 so I’m looking at buying one of their defenders instead.

Priced at £4.4m, Matthew Lowton looks like a real bargain but he has not scored in the Premier League since 2012/13 and he’s only delivered one assist in the last three seasons. With plenty of money in the bank, I definitely prefer the idea of investing in one of their centre-backs instead.

So I will almost certainly buy one of Ben Mee (£4.9m) or James Tarkowski (£5.3m) either this week or ahead of Gameweek 24. Let’s look at their attacking returns and bonus points in the past three seasons to try to figure out which one is the best option.

Tarkowski clearly has the edge in every department but he is almost £0.4m more expensive than his team-mate and Mee has already scored twice this season. 

I think it is really close between the two of them but right now i’m leaning towards Mee, since that extra £0.4m could become handy very soon. After all, goals from set-pieces are a real lottery and it would be sickening to pay extra for Tarkowski just to watch Mee scoring from a corner.

Regarding their attackers, I think Chris Wood (£6.2m) is a decent shout. He has only scored four goals so far but he reached the 10-goal mark in each of the last three seasons while playing limited minutes in every single one of them. 

I expect Wood to do well in their nice run of fixtures and I think there is a decent chance he will also be in my team for the Double Gameweek, provided he is fit in time.

FULHAM

Gameweek 21 Scout Picks features another Man City triple-up

I will happily play Areola in Double Gameweek 24 since I already have him in my team but I strongly suggest non-owners to look to Pope instead. Areola is averaging 3.5 points per game while the Burnley goalkeeper is on five points per game so far. To put that in perspective, that’s the same tally as Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) or James Maddison (£7.3m).

Other than that, I also have André-Franck Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) as my bench fodder and I will have to decide if I want to play him in the Double Gameweek or upgrade him to his colleague Ademola Lookman (£5.0m), who offers much more attacking potential. 

However, I already have too much money on the bench and I’m not sure I want to invest an extra £0.5m just to bench Lookman in most of the upcoming Gameweeks.

Right now, I’m leaning towards playing Anguissa in Double Gameweek 24 and hope for another assist from him just like in my Gameweek 19 bench boost. I think Fulham assets are a clear case of “Hold but don’t buy” regardless of an extra fixture.

LEEDS UNITED

As an owner of Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), I was really pleased to know Leeds would play an extra match in Double Gameweek 25. In light of this development, I think both these players are borderline essential going forward.

Dallas has been playing out of position lately and, despite poor defensive performances from Bielsa’s men, he is operating almost like a forward right now. I expect him to be in most active teams when the Whites’ Double Gameweek arrives. 

The same can be said about the already highly-owned Bamford. I even expect him to lead the captaincy poll in Double Gameweek 25 and his effective ownership will be massive. It will take a brave man to go without the Leeds striker then.

Raphinha (£5.3m) and Jack Harrison (£5.4m) also seem like great budget options and I will try to add one of them to my squad very soon. The only downside of tripling up on Leeds is the fact that they will only play once in Gameweek 26 but I’m planning to bench at least two of them by then or even use my Wildcard so I’m not too worried about it right now.

SOUTHAMPTON

After a shocking defeat at Old Trafford this week, most managers will be scared to invest in the Saints. However, I think it was just a freak result and, hopefully, the possible return of the injured Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m), Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) and Oriol Romeu (£4.5m) will certainly boost their appeal.

With a confirmed Double Gameweek 25 and the possibility of also playing twice in Gameweeks 26 and 27, I will keep a close eye on their next two matches. I will certainly get Alex McCarthy (£4.6m) and it’s possible I will decide to double-up in their defence if they look solid against Newcastle and Wolves.

Danny Ings (£8.4m), Che Adams (£5.8m) or even the new recruit Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) can become interesting targets by Gameweek 25 but, for now, I think the right move is to wait and watch closely how they recover from such a brutal loss. If their last 9-0 defeat against Leicester tells us anything about their ability to recoup from adversity, I think it’s safe to say they will be just fine.

    I'm leading most of my important mini-leagues ranked at about 5k.

    Pretty much all of my chasers have Son.

    I am considering transferring him in as a defensive tactic.

    Opinions?

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Depends on getting in for who?

      1. Dynamic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        See below.

        I would be playing him instead of Gundogan.

        Cheers for the response boss.

    2. Dynamic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Bissouma -> Son is the transfer for context.

      1. Uncle Gamst
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        No brainer

        1. Dynamic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Cheers follow 9-year member.

          See above. Playing him instead of Gundo tho.

          Do you still echo the same sentiments?

          1. Boxwoods
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Even with Spurs crappy form, I would play Son over Gundo this week. You obviously have a boatload in the bank. If nothing better to spend that on for GW 24, I’d say do the move. Can bench son that week for Gundo.

            1. Boxwoods
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Son in still being a good move long term.

              1. Dynamic
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                I agree. Cheers pal.

    3. sthelenslad92

      Makes sense to do that to maintain your lead - so long as it doesn't involve taking a hit to get him in.

      1. Dynamic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        This echoes my thinking right now.

        If I was ranked like 100k my strategy would be different. I feel like I cannot expose myself to this possibility of Son running riot (even tho this is probs unlikely based upon his current form haha)

    4. Reckoner
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I think I'm doing the same, but have to trade Mane for him.

    5. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Is it not a bit early to play defensive? Son isnt even in great form at the moment. You could even extend your lead by going with a better option

    6. The Knights Template

      Yes

    Are you benching Robbo vs City? I guess I should sell him for Mee tonight, before both players' price change then....

    1. jamesjoseph2770
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

        Oh, darn; I lost sense of time -_- Guess I'm saving the transfer for next GW.

    2. Scout15
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I've just done that...

    3. Tonyawesome69

      Bruno or Son

    3. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Honestly could all score similar. Personally on Antonio

    4. Aussie Rules
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I have kus this 3 and thinking Antonio

    5. Reckoner
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Same headache here. Still not sure what to do, gonna hang till the deadline I guess....

    6. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      If I had all 3 I would go with Son. Fixture over form.

    7. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A

    8. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Bruno will have the highest EO
      Antonio I think could be a great option
      Son doesn't justify it on his form without Kane, it's more WBA's weakness

  10. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 11 days ago

    Save FT (was going to be Foden > Son/Grealish/Rashford) and play, instead of bench DCL, actually feels like the right move now.

    Bench would have had DCL & Stones which would have been nuts

    1. Dynamic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Are you defending, are you attacking?

      Which other players do your opponents have?

      I feel like we need a bigger insight into your thought process.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Martinez - McCarthy
        Cresswell - Stones - Justin - Dallas - Mitchell
        Salah - Bruno - Gundogan - Foden - Soucek
        DCL - Antonio - Bamford

        1 x FT, 4.8m ITB

        No WC or FH, only BB & TC...so just trying to keep up with those who have chips left. FT becomes mini-WC (3/4 transfers) next week

        1. Dynamic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          If you don't have WC or FH, I feel like you need to take care of Mitchell in prep for playing your BB? He's in my team (but I have all the chips), and I view him as finished.

          Looking at your team right now, I think that your only concerns are Foden and Mitchell tbh. Foden is a big waste of a City slot (you need 3 of Dias, Cancelo, Stones, Sterling, Gundo). Them City slots will almost define your season over the doubles imo.

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Plan is McCarthy, Mitchell & Foden > Pope, Mee & Sterling for -4pts next week (mini-WC)

            1. Dynamic
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              I think I approve.

              My only concern is that you are transferring out a GK with a DGW25?

              I think that the better move may be to do Justin -> Mee instead?

              This probably a bad suggestion, but just something for you to consider haha.

              1. Jafooli
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                Yeah, issue with McCarthy is he recently shipped 9 and has U-12 defenders in front of him.....was actually thinking maybe Ederson for third City spot as most likely to start all games, where as City defs will be rotated

                1. Jafooli
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  But this means someone else instead of Sterling...might punt on James (Eve DGW)

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Foden often does well against the bigger teams too. And he has just been rested right.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Here’s hoping.....but not expecting 😀

    3. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yup, playing DCL and saving FT seems ok.

      1. Jafooli

    Son vs Antonio cap is pretty tough one.

    1. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Tough one? Spurs without Kane are garbage and WBA are going to beat them.

      Home and away don’t matter in an Empty COVID stadium

  12. Ronny Sandstone

    Should Lowton keep his place in the Burnley team for the DGW?

    1. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Why wouldn't he?

      1. Ronny Sandstone
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Sorry I'm getting my positions confused?! - was thinking of Taylor coming back (for I assume Pieters instead not Lowton)

        Bed time!

  13. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Which GW looking good for BB? I’m thinking DGW24 (WHU have SHU & MHU have WBA) or 26?

    1. ZLNR
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      26 in theory should be better. Whichever will give you more matches on the bench

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Likely to only be 4 matches (SGW players) in either case as don’t have WC or FH available. So will look at best players being benched at take it from there

          Hmm I'll look out for your post again then. You could be right with a punt on 24 then!

            BB could be Martinez - Cresswell - Soucek - Antonio 😆

  14. sthelenslad92

    Start Gundogan or DCL?

    1. UNDERWORLD7

      Gundo

    2. the dom 1

      I have both and starting Gundo, 1st bench DCL

    3. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      How "essential" is Grealish for the next 2 GWs and onwards?

        Apologies. Was meant to post that

  15. Gabbiadini

    Is this the correct way to set up this team?

    Fabianski
    Cancelo | Mee | Dallas
    Salah | Bruno | Son (c) | Grealish
    Ings | Antonio | Bamford

    Martinez | Coufal | Gundogan | Stones

    Cheers.

      Think that looks good. Would be tempted to go gundo over ings but it's close

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years

        Yeh. I am quite certain on Ings v Newcastle.

    Mee or DCL?

    Odds for Burnley's CS and DCL's anytime score is so close. Is Mee's goal threat giving him an little bit edge?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Mee

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Thanks. I currently bench DCL but not 100% confirm.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      To play this GW? DCL IMO. I would be surprised if Burnley keep a CS.

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Burnley or/and Brighton keep CS this week would not surprise me as they normally don't score many. But of course, it also don't surprise me if Brighton win 0:1 as they seems like.

        Another end, will Man Utd can keep the Everton quiet enough? If Everton scores, surely DCL is a favourite.

        Thanks, I understand it is probably a tough call.

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah not an easy one. I always favour the attacker. Man Utd did concede vs. Fulham and Sheff Utd prior to last GW and should probably have conceded last GW if it weren't for the dodgy decisions.

          I mentioned earlier that only Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool have had more shots in the box than Brighton in their last 4 matches. While I also wouldn't be surprised to see a 0-0, 1-0 or 1-1 type scoreline I don't think a Burnley CS is a given here.

          Tough one though.

      Btw boys, I apologise for my chat of apparently captaining Bendarek for his -14.

      I received a lot of negative responses; this was mainly from newer members

      I've been around these parts for 10 years (min 9+).

      I thought this was good banter.

      The rest of the older members will back me here. They will recognise my name. It was a bit of a laugh.

        You would think people would have more important things to worry about than a joke about captaining bedna. A guy in my mini league had him in his first 11, made me giggle.

          Same here haha. But on a more depressing point his total score has 33. The min score over the other top 20 in the league was 58 haha. Oops, man down lol.

          Big respect to your name mate. Proper Football League fan. Before my current display pc I proudly displayed a BWFC badge. We will be back. Luton are a proper club too! Why did you cancel our Kioso loan tho haha :'(

    • JamieC180

      Play one this week:

      A) Dias
      B) Mee

        Dias

        1. JamieC180
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I've been leaning toward Mee - Burnley at home look solid, and I feel City will surely concede. Big headache

          1. Luton_Fan
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Feel brighton will score with their form. Man city look impenetrable, could easily be 0-0.

          2. JamieC180
            • 2 Years

              I have my doubts about Brighton, but agree as regards City. Toss up. Cheers for the thoughts

        Dias. Brighton 5th best in the league for xG over the last 4 games and joint 4th most shots inside box. Everyone seems to be expecting a Burnley CS, but I can't see it.

        1. Injury Prone o_O Gooner.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Brighton hardly prolific in front of goal tho no? Burnley kept clean sheets against better sides, or am I missing something?
          Pool are more than capable of scoring imo.

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I get your point. I just wouldn't be surprised to see it be a cagey Liverpool - City game. Man City are undoubtedly the best defence in the league right now.

      Yo, whens the ticker and members area getting updated, trying to make some descisions and cant use it as I would like in its current state!? ta

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        The lack of ticker update by now is seriously dissapointing. I'm not usually one to complain (regarding things such as betting partner ads etc), but I'd have thought there has been ample time to amend such a core aspect of this site.

        1. Injury Prone o_O Gooner.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Bro its been 2 days, bit annoyed tbh, breaks half the tools in the mebers area that I want to use. Not everyone can be around pre deadline to finalise their team.

          Said the same earlier today. Every other FPL site has it included in whatever fixture ticker they have employed, and I don't pay a dime for the luxury, unlike on here.

          This site now seems more focused on promoting sponsors (gambling companies, no less) than adding just a handful of games to a fixture ticker.

          Affiliating with such companies is one thing, but failing to keep just a simple ticker updated after having more than sufficient time to do so is, as you say, seriously disappointing.

            I dont need the tools, only really use the ticker as its conveinent but I support the site every year as I have been here from the begining and appreciated the effort Mark and Co put in back in the day to make this great community. But honestly I was thinking may go support one of the new up and comer's next year.

        well, its good to have him for sure... would just try to get him asap

        There isn't a single player that is 'essential' right now.

        Never mind Grealish.

        He's decent tho.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        He’s good to have. Not essential cause Watkins and Traore miss 1/3 the chances he creates.

        If he played for a better club, he would be essential like Bruno

    • HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Would you play Martinez / Forster this week? Thinking the CS potential is higher and if he doesn't play I still get Martinez points off the bench.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I was thinking this earlier, but tbh I would be surprised to see McCarthy dropped. No harm I guess though if we think the CS prospects are better.

    • Luton_Fan
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Which one would u rather keep over the doubles?

      Nailed ederson, almost nailed dias or rotated but more explosive cancelo.

      1. Luton_Fan
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Rather sell i mean

      2. luk46
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Dias and Cancelo, if just one probably Dias due to being 100% nailed

      3. ZLNR
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Probably ederson since he's less likely to earn saves and bonus than the others assists/goals

        If you have a weak bench get rid of Cancelo

        1. Luton_Fan
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeh same thinking. Thanks both

      DCL or Gundogan

      1. luk46

        latter imo

      2. Luton_Fan

        Seems everyone has that dilemma. I would play dcl.

      3. Qaiss

      who would you start between:
      A - Martinez
      B - Pope
      and get in:
      1 - Alonso (Chilwell could start?)
      2- Shaw

      1. Luton_Fan

        A2

    • PP6
      • 2 Years

      Probably WC in 25.
      Does this sound good?

      Salah and Burke to (S)on and Rashford for free
      gw24- Forster and Targett - Pope and Tarkowski -4 one or the other even

      Thoughts on these trades:

      Phillips to Lowton
      Forster -> Areola

      1. Dynamic
