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.

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

      Cancelo, think Chilwell will be on the bench

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

      Chilwell easy

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Does Chilwell even start?
      I’ve shipped him out this week.

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

      Start Chillwell in case he plays (he probably won’t) then enjoy Cancelo’s haul from the bench.

    How do you deal with this situation?

    There are players who I want long term but I don't get them as they don't have DGWs. Instead I get the DGWers for short term but then move them to my long term picks. There is always a fear that these players will rise in price though and then I will not be able to afford my long term picks.. Would you rather get the long term picks then?

    1. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Nah everyone will go for DGWers once the causal community catches up to the hype in a GW or so, no long term players would rise high enough to price you out. Just play it by the day and bring in long term options when they have favorable fixtures.

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

      I mean, there's no clear answer for this as this is basically the crux of this 'game'. There's an opportunity cost for everything! 😀

      I don't think price rises / falls will make too much of a difference with what is left of the season. There seems to be more options and reasonable prices than before this season so go with your gut

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Make sure your DGW picks cost more than your earmarked long term picks. Then it’s an easy downgrade. Or have money in the bank.

      bro dont over think it, this is a short term game right now about points. dont worry about the money there is always a solution.

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

      Cheers all.

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

        As you're sat on Kane who may return away at Man City i don't see how that plays into a dgw24 plan at all?

  4. The 12th Man
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Gtg? 5.7m itb 1FT
    Play Mee,Coufal and Soucek over Dias, Digne and DCL?
    Martinez
    Cancelo,Coufal,Mee
    Salah,Fernandes(c),Grealish,Gunogan,Soucek
    Antonio(vc),Watkins

    Johnstone,DCL,Dias,Digne

    1. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Looks solid. Considering flipping the C and VC around? Because I am 😀

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Maybe. I hate captaining players against my team .
        Fernandes is the safer pick though.

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

      Looks solid, would keep it how it is.

      Out of curiosity, what's your reason for Fernandes over Antonio for (c)?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Trying to jinx him as he plays my team this week. Lol.
        No particular reason really. Antonio is a decent shout too.

    3. Injury Prone o_O Gooner.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      it may not pay off but i think thats the best choice for potenial gains when concidering the opo. utd can keep eve out, Mee strong chance of cs, soucek is soucek. Coufal v dias and digne is tight tho.

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Benching Everton players against United is daft.

  5. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Pope
    Dias - Stones - Coufal
    Salah - Bruno (C) - Rashford - Grealish - Gundogan
    Antonio - Bamford

    (Martinez) (DCL - Dallas - Bednarek) - 1FT - £2.4 ITB

    Good to go?

    1. The 12th Man

      Aye. Nice team.

      1. Ibralicious

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

      I’d play Dallas over Stones

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Was thinking that but Liverpool's form and City's defense ownership made benching Dallas easier to stomach

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

      Good side!

      1. Ibralicious

      1. deshawn7
        • 6 Years

    4. 3 A

        H but lets face it feels like anything could happen this week

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

    Seems like GW26 would be best for BB or TC for those who have? Once the fixtures have settled of course...

    Off to the market, a nice relaxing morning, and then home for Breakfast Club.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years

        B

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

        I think B, especially with Arsenal missing Luiz, Tierney and Leno

        1. Injury Prone o_O Gooner.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Gabriel Cedric and Mr Ryan says hi... lol

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

      Isn't DCL for Vardy of interest?

      Is it really worth holding him because Everton play an extra game against Man City, after Fulham?

      https://www.today.ng/sport/football/leicester-boss-wilfred-ndidi-jamie-vardy-close-returning-injuries-344970/amp?__twitter_impression=true

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

        Or to Vardy even!

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

        Leicester fixtures for attack look iffy after this one. Liverpool and Villa could both be vulnerable of course but not fixtures I’d attack and Brighton looks an avoid

        Moving Barnes on here quite probably

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

          I agree they look tough but Leicester doing the business and with Vardy back leading the line they could challenge the Manchester club's for the title again!!

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

            He’s on my mind in a way Kane isn’t right now but waiting to see him hit form.

            When he does I’ll likely ignore fixtures

    • GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Speaking of manager's personalities or lack of them!

            • 5 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Just crazy to have to pick between them to bench, can’t imagine what the rest of your team is!

            1. Foolio

              3 months, 8 days ago

              Lol yeah. Basically playing
              Cresswell / Maguire / Webster
              Son / Stirling / Gundo / Sucek
              Antonio / Wilson
              In the other spots.

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

        Darn. I’d probably play mane

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

          Thanks!

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

        If you're going to bench Mane or Martial may as well hit them out.

        Punt on Vardy return on the road at Wolves?

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

          Agree but it's a draft league so clinging on...

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

          And on the Vardy call... I'd probably play him if not convinced by your starters...

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Hmm .. apparently Jonathan Moss with Mariner on VAR. May stick with Antonio (c)

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

          Isn't Moss a terrible ref as well?

          Sadly the state of officials in England has begun to require it.

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

      Captain on

      A) Bruno
      B) Son or
      C) Bamford

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

        All good option. I choose A

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

          Thanks

        Gone Antonio, Bamford vice. Don’t think Moss has a reputation as a United man.

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

          Yep.

          Fulham only 4 clean sheets all season albeit 3 in the last 9.

          Against BHA twice and Saints 0-0.

      3. Samurai Blue
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Has to be Son if you own him

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Spurs without Kane have been soooo bad though. I still agree but ..

    • Kuqi Monster
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Start TAA or DCL?

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

        Dom

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        DCL

      3. Samurai Blue
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        DCL

    • noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Any salah benchers genuinely going through with it?

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Me. Maybe.

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

        Benching him for Kane 😉

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

      Anyone bench boosting in 24?

      1. Aussie Rules
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Potentially. Can get in Pope next week and have Lowton already to go with 3 City and WHU

        1. Over Midwicket
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          26 obviously has more upside I guess

      2. LT10
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I'm considering it. My bench for 24 is likely to be:
        McCarthy (WOLVES)
        Son (city)
        Robbo (leic)
        Anguissa (eve; burnley)

    • toxik
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Who to bench from:

      Bruno
      Son
      Gundogan
      Grealish
      Barnes
      Watkins
      Antonio
      DCL

      Also any chance of a Chilwell start?

      1. Aussie Rules
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        DCL

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          No chance. Watkins or Barnes

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

        Watkins, you have Jack from Villa.

      3. shiraz
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Watkins/DCL

        • Injury Prone o_O Gooner.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          barnes, watkins has been looking sharp and dcl can pop off anytime

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

        Start Salah, H Barnes or Stones?

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Salah

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

          Salah

      5. ‘Tis the Season
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Play Watkins or soucek ??

        1. Aussie Rules
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Soucek, but I'm playing both

          1. ‘Tis the Season

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

          Feel set on Meslier + Brewster --> Pope + Antonio (FT) but just second guessing whether I can do just the striker move. But I'll likely want Pope anyway as I don't like my current GK's much tbh! Pull trigger? 🙂

          Meslier
          Stones -- R.Dias -- Justin
          Salah -- Fernandes (c) -- Son -- Gundogan -- Soucek
          DCL -- Bamford

          McCarthy -- Coufal -- Holding -- Brewster [2FT + 5.1m ITB]

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

            Yes, what's not to like...

          2. shiraz
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Do McCarthy to Pope, leeds have decent fixtures.

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

                McCarthy could have doubles in GW26, 27 & 28 whereas Leeds are not scheduled to have any. (Both double in GW25).

                1. shiraz
                    3 months, 8 days ago

                    Didn't know that, think it is meslier then

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

                      Ben Crellin has some good spreadsheets which help with these things

                Great moves. I’d do them both

            • Erez Avni
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              play DCL or Chilwell for the chance he would start? can’t see Alonso playing 3 full games in one week

              1. shiraz
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Only if chilwell will start. But seem unlikely after 3 games

                • Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Play DCL regardless. Could rip United a new one.

                  Have I got that bench right?

                      Yup

                      I suspect your playing Gundo as you missing a player

                  2. Bad Kompany

                    24.2m on my bench this gw. Anyone close to that or even more?

                      I will have 26.8m on my bench

                        Wow. Normally we try to avoid having any money on our bench. Will be infuriating if Liverpool city ends up nil nil

                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      Just thinking ahead...
                      For GW 24, as long as nothing unexpected happens, my bench is likely to be:
                      McCarthy (WOLVES)
                      Son (man city)
                      Robbo (leic)
                      Anguissa (eve; burnley)

                      Is that bench boost material?
                      If I BB in 24, it would mean that I could WC before 26 and only have to worry about 11 DGWs. Could then fill the bench up with 4 players likely to have a fixture in 29. (I've already used FH).

                      Any thoughts?

                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      Captain Antonio or Bruno ?

                      1. Bad Kompany
                        • 3 Years
                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        I’m on Antonio but have had like 1 captain return in the last 7 so...

                      2. Bushwhacker
                        • 1 Year
                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        On Antonio too. Bruno’s form against 11 men has been awful.
