Scoutcast Episode 366 – How to prepare for flurry of FPL Double Gameweeks

Joe and Seb are joined by Karam to look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Double Gameweek 24.

With Manchester City, Everton, Burnley and Fulham playing twice in the next set of fixtures, there is plenty for our Scoutcast trio to consider as the gear up for the weekend’s deadline.

That’s just the start of their Double Gameweek planning. Leeds and Southampton have extra matches in Gameweek 25 and there’s a raft of further games to squeeze into the following set of fixtures.

It is a lot of information for FPL managers to take in, especially as this week’s FA Cup games will determine much of the upcoming schedule.

Luckily Seb has decided to Wildcard this week, which provides the Scoutcast with a perfect opportunity to frame the chat around the best assets to target.

The crew look through Seb’s options and provide the latest statistics from the FFScout Members area on each of the key teams involved.

Manchester City, Everton and Leeds players look vital to their planning, whether wildcarding or not. These players are certainly central to Joe and Karam’s thoughts on using their Bench Boost chip.

Tottenham’s extra games plus the importance of Harry Kane (£11.0m) to Jose Mourinho’s troops are also considered. Just how bad are Spurs without their talisman?

There’s Gameweek 23 to review, featuring some huge Rough with the Smooth bench scores. In addition, fixtures are frisked and Joe takes his turn to pick a differential, amid shock that his selection is not in more teams.

While Seb’s Wildcard understandably grabs the headlines, Joe and Karam take time at the end to reveal their transfer and captaincy plans.

    Moura misses big chance, not looking great for Everton defence already.
