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.

    Points predictions for Grealish next 2 GWS please guys?

    Can he be ignored if it means getting Mee & Pope instead? Still have 5 DGW24 players.

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Who do you have instead of Grealish?

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Alzate. Also have Son, Salah,Gundo,Fernandes, Bamford, DCL and Antonio

  2. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Salah to Raphinha?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Who to get then?

        Don't fancy holding Salah for the next two games.

        Man City and Leicester will be tough.

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          If he gets his form back they won't be tough.

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Makes sense if you’re not captaining Salah... which surely not many are doing until GW27

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Out of interest, will you play all your Man City defenders at Anfield?

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              No I’ve actually just swapped Stones to Rudi to free up a city slot

              Barring anything catastrophic injury/form wise this weekend & midweek will do Salah > either Gundo or Raz (c) for 24, 26, and probably even 27 doubles

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I have done Salah to Son(c). So I feel bad for saying no to this. But no.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I suspect a few of us will do it if Raph hauls this weekend. I am intending to get him for the DGW - at the expense of my 5th midf who is Barkley. But say Kane plays and hauls - by hanging onto Salah for now I can 2FT Salah and DCL for Kane and Raph in time for his DGW.
        My immediate concern is which 2 of the 3 to bench today: Salah, DCL, Barkley.

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Surely you won't bench Salah?

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Yup, currently am. I expect a 2-pointer from him. If I'm wrong at least I haven't got rid too quickly.

  3. iL PiStOlErO
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    GTG? Play Coufal or Lowton?

    Pope
    Cancelo Dallas Coufal
    Sterling Salah Bruno(C) Gundo
    Antonio Bamford DCL

    McCarthy Lowton Justin Romeu

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      50-50. But I believe Fulham need the win more. So play Lowton.

  4. thepirates
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Planning on bench Stones for Lowton (have Dias alrdy) is this sane?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yep, logical

  5. Galza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Ederson
    Cresswell / Dias / Digne
    Salah / Bruno / Grealish / Barnes / Benrahma
    DCL / Bamford(c)

    Button / Trent / Brewster / Ferguson

    Have I made the right call in benching Trent and all set to go...?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Digne and TAA are 50-50 calls, IMO. So yes, if you're happy then you're all set.

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks a lot.
        Trent likely to make way to free up some DGW cash next week.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yep - Digne over TAA adds up I think when you consider the defences of the 2 Manchester clubs.

      Much less between their attacks. That said United were very dull in attack before the drubbing and Everton are an away side

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Kind of what I was thinking, but I just don’t like to see it 🙂

  6. JAYPEE
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    GTG 0.1 ITB 2 FT

    Martinez
    Dias AWB Justin
    Salah Sterling Fernandes Son Soucek
    Bamford Antonio

    Forster, Watkins, Stones, Phillips

    Should I make any transfers?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Looks great.

    2. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Phillips out

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Not sure I'd change anything to be honest!

      Maybe Philips --> Mitchell. Unliekly you'll play your 5th defender but maybe latter has better fixtures?

  7. Sanchit
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Stones and Brewster to Lowton and Antonio for free?
    Will get gundo as third city player next week, to have 3 city for the dgws

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years

        Cancelo and Sterling

        1. Bavarian

          3 months, 8 days ago

          nice, good luck

  8. Bavarian
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Play Robertson or DCL?

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Tough. I'd go DCL.
      Just because I feel City will beat Liverpool 1-0 or 2-0

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Play DCL

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      DCL

  9. Whats the Mata?
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Benching Salah atm.

    Starting attack:
    Bruno Son Saka Gundo
    Antonio Watkins Bamford

    Would you bench any of them for Salah?

    1. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Watkins

    2. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Start Salah and bench either Saka or Watkins

    3. Holmes

      Watkins

    4. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I really don't like Salah as a player, but you need to own him and play him if you want to play this game...

          1. Whats the Mata?
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Price tag shouldn't make you blind though... in think others have a better shout of attacking returns. I've got double city def too.

  10. WALOR
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Start Stones or Dias?

    Is it crazy to get Pope in if i already have Martinez? Burnley good fixtures, i have BB left also. What would be the best transfer to afford Ramsdale to Pope?

    Martinez
    Robbo Stones Cancelo
    Salah Son Bruno Soucek
    DCL Richarlison Bamford

    Ramsdale Anguissa Taylor Holding
    A) Richarlison (has a dgw24) to Antonio

    4. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Not crazy. I nearly did it for a hit but realised Marty can let in a goal and get 2-3 points and Pope can keep a clean sheet and I'm no better off, so I'll likely do it next week for Pope's double.

    I think I will just bench Dier...

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Hi guys! Need some help here.

    Play Dier or Stones?

    Cap Bruno or Salah?

    Thanks!

    1. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      If you own either Dias or Cancelo, play Dier
      and C Bruno

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Wouldn't be surprised to see Dier dropped after Mou went apoplectic on the touchline with Dier's sea anonome legs followed by crazy backpass.

    Will the games at Sheffield United and Leeds United on Sunday and Monday night be at risk from the easterly snow storm forecast?

    Or Newcastle if the snowfall starts earlier?

    Will Old Trafford and Anfield be far enough west and fine around the ground to access and play the games?

      Don't say that - just send orange balls!

    Anyone else tempted to captain Bam Bam over Bruno etc. simply because it's the last match of the GW?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Where's the sense in that? Just let a black cat cross your path.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not sure many will, but he actually looks a decent captaincy shout in 25 for sure

      Between him & Bruno that week, but Bruno has Europa league before & after NEW....

      What u think about Mason mount for next 2 GW against sheffield and Newcastle?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Not sure if he starts both - too much rotation and TT experimentation.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 8 days ago

        Decent play - as Andy says though doubts over minutes

      Those with double City defence, what are you doing this weekend? Playing both? I have Dallas, Justin and considering benching City defenders, madness?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Definitely. Benching Salah instead.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Decided to bench Dias for Digne - aggressive play simply because Digne has the greater ceiling. Dias is a cs merchant only really - same returns as Ederson

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I don't see either Pool or City keeping a cleansheet in this one.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Really? I'm going for very low-scoring; either 0-0 or 1-0 City.

            1. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Mane is back, good for Robertson too on left side. Fabinho is back. Most important, Alison is back to martial that defence. Of course Pool need to bounce after being so poor v Brighton but their faint league hopes are dead if they lose.

              Klopp is badly rattled going into the game - embarrassing himself with that nonsense about City having 2 weeks off...

              It’s as bad as the whinging about Utd having more penalties before the Man Utd game, that rubbish about “small flowers” before the West Ham game, or the way he bit at Keane picking up on how sloppy they were vs Arsenal just before conceding 7 to Villa the next week

              His Kevin Keegan/Rafa Benitez moment surely isn’t far away at this stage - a city win could be the catalyst

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                He does talk a lot of tripe at times and also get tetchy enough. But still a decent coach.

                • 5 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                The one about the lunchtime kick offs was the start for me, just so detached from reality.

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        City have conceded 2 big chances and 1 goal in the last 6 gameweeks... can’t overthink numbers like that

        Liverpool could score 7, but it won’t have been in tea leaves

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Those are absolutely unbelievable numbers. Incredible defense.

      4. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Liverpool have nothing to lose, they have to win, I would expect them to score.

      Have 2ft thinking few transfers thoughts ?

      a) McCarthy > pope
      (Or)
      b) McCarthy > de gea

      Is Vardy likely to start?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Probably wont risk it

      2. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Probably will be on the bench..

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Suspect he comes on off the bench.

        Rodgers was cagey enough and Leicester attack has operated well without him

    • Sotamendi84
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      start New or Coufal?

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Who's New?

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Mee i think

      2. Sotamendi84
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Mee

    • CHRIS WILDER and THE WILDLI…
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Too early to bring in CHO? Played 64mins in the last game and has been quite a threat?

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          That IR position with James as RWB seemed to work brilliantly, but I suspect TT will experiment further before settling down.

          1. CHRIS WILDER and THE WILDLI…
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Let me hold off on that rock then. Cheers

            Bench 1:

            A) Stones
            B) Dias
            C) Mee

            Have Pope in goal

            On further reflection it could be the Spurs game on Sunday at midday at risk, if London gets hit by the easterly snow storm?

            1. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Stop this. They don't get postponed when there are no fans and stadiums have heaters under the pitch.

              I heard it'll be a North westerly wind which miraculously won't stop grown men kicking a bit of leather.

            Tough decisions this GW...
            Play one of:
            1)Stones
            2)Trent
            3)Coufal

            Bench one of:
            A)Watkins
            B)Salah
            C)Gundo
