When is the best time to play the second Wildcard as Double Gameweeks loom large?

When is the right time to play a second Wildcard? Should Fantasy Premier League managers deploy it before or after the next set of Double Gameweeks?

The questions around this particular chip are endless and I can understand why. We are entering a pivotal part of the campaign so it is important to get our strategy correct.

With this article, I talk about the pros and cons of using your Wildcard now versus later in the season as I continue to mull over this decision. I intend on presenting the factors you should consider while making this decision, which should hopefully help you with the same.

Is it time to go all in or should you hold on for a little longer? Let’s discuss that question in more detail.

For me, the serious planning begins in Gameweek 25, as I’m very likely activating my Wildcard with the intention to Bench Boost in Gameweek 26. It is worth pointing out that I have a Free Hit also in my pocket so I don’t need to worry about Blank Gameweek 29 at this point. 

ADVANTAGES TO WILDCARDING NOW

In an ideal world, I would have liked to Wildcard after using my Bench Boost in Gameweek 26 but there are a few reasons for me pulling the trigger now. Let’s call them the advantages of Wildcarding in Gameweek 25:

  • I have a non-playing goalkeeper and two of my outfielders are Oliver Burke (£4.2m) and Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m). This means that if I want to Bench Boost in Gameweek 26 without using my Wildcard, I need to spend transfers on these three spots. This is a little inconvenient in terms of attacking the doubles in Gameweek 24 and 25 before that, which is where I’d have liked to spend my transfers.
  • I am currently ranked at 1.2 million and, if I need to have a respectable finish to the season, I don’t have enough time to recover it by simply taking hits and trying to get the right team in place. I want to press the Nitro Boost button early and hope that the Wildcard sustains itself for a sufficient period and helps take my season in the right direction. Personally, Wildcarding later in the season might be too late given my rank.
  • Buying extra games for at least 15 players in Gameweek 25 and 26. I currently have just one Leeds United and zero Southampton players. I am hoping that I am buying at least 15 extra games for my squad by playing my Wildcard.
  • I could potentially have two Burnley players in Double Gameweek 24 and I don’t necessarily want to carry them in Gameweek 26 as their potential Double at that point does not look very attractive. One of the advantages of Wildcarding in Gameweek 25 is I can get rid of my Clarets without any fuss.

If I had a decent bench right now, I would have considered Wildcarding in Gameweek 24, 25 or 26. There are advantages to pulling the trigger on a new squad after the Bench Boost…

WILDCARDING AFTER MY BENCH BOOST

First up, the distribution of funds is correct. Once we have the Bench Boost chip out of the way, we do not need to have a second playing goalkeeper and can also afford to have a bottom-price 14th outfielder. This helps us compress funds and spend more on the pitch rather than distributing the money through the squads. 

Also, on this note, I am anticipating that it might be fairly difficult to build a good Bench Boost team in Gameweek 26 because we could have Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea all having Double Gameweeks. 

Yes, the budget midfielders and forwards are making life easier right now but Harry Kane (£11.0m) has returned and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) is already back on the training pitch. It might be very difficult own a lot of these big hitters and have a balanced squad all at the same time. 

If you are not Bench Boosting in Gameweek 26, it is possible to have a more appropriate distribution of funds which might allow an additional big hitter or two.

WILDCARD PERSPECTIVE

Signing Cancelo a week before fixture swing can give FPL owners the edge

A big worry I have right now is being guilty of short-sightedness. If I Wildcard in Gameweek 25 looking at the Double Gameweek players, I worry about building a new team that is too heavily focused on the doubles and the Bench Boost. 

This is a real concern and we definitely need to pay attention to the fixtures after the next Double Gameweeks when putting together a new squad for the rest of the campaign.

It is very important to not have a blindspot just for the Double Gameweeks and build a mid-term team with good fixtures in the future. 

This is one of the advantages of Wildcarding after Gameweek 26 as there will be a balanced focus towards the good players and teams rather than just the Double Gameweek players.

Being able to assess the impact of European football returning is also a big advantage in terms of Wildcarding later. There are Champions League and Europa League games coming for a lot of important Premier League clubs and I am wondering whether we spot certain trends in the European games which might help our Fantasy squads… and a later Wildcard.

Something as simple as Pep Guardiola preferring certain centre-backs in Europe to others in the league could potentially impact which players we choose for a Wildcard or Bench Boost squad.

THE RIGHT MOTIVATION

Another factor I worry about is motivation and certain teams visiting the beach way sooner than expected. In my opinion, the league is most certainly going to be won by Manchester City and we could have a season where the relegation race might be decided a lot earlier than normal. Again, this could lead to certain team selection and form trends which might be more visible a little later in the season. 

One thing that you could do to safeguard yourself against this is that the race for the top four as well as European places looks like it could go deep into the season. Teams vying for these spots will continue to be motivated right until the end of the season and it might be worth investing in them if Wildcarding early. 

THE FREE HIT

One of the reasons I’m not worried about the Wildcard in Gameweek 25 and Bench Boost in Gameweek 26 is that I don’t need to consider the Blanks in Gameweek 29 at all (because I have a Free Hit Chip still to use). 

This might not be the case for a lot of managers who might need to keep an eye on the Gameweek 29 fixtures and maintain a balance between them and Double Gameweekers in Gameweek 26. This is why a lot of managers are considering a Bench Boost even in Gameweek 24 and then Wildcarding in Gameweek 26 where the bench is focused towards those playing in Gameweek 29. 

An alternate option is to dead-end into Gameweek 29 by focusing transfers between Gameweek 26 and 29 towards the Blank Gameweeks and eventually use the Wildcard chip in Gameweek 30 with a focused view on the last eight fixtures where the factors state above can be taken advantage of.  

One thing I want to mention, if you have already used your Wildcard or if you are playing your Wildcard after the Double Gameweeks, is do not take a lot of hits and maximise on all the Double Gameweeks. 

That might not be possible, I appreciate. You will need to pick and choose the Double Gameweek fixtures you want to attack and compromising on one might mean being able to jump in on another. 

For example, Burnley are not a team renowned for their attack and it might even be a good idea to jump on a Danny Ings (£8.4m) who has a decent looking fixture against Wolves in Gameweek 24 before his Double Gameweek in 25. 

Point being, you need to pick the teams and Doubles you want to target if you’re keeping the Wildcard in the pocket for later. I particularly mention Ings here because, to me, he looked really sharp against Newcastle and got a lot of shots off which hasn’t been the case with him normally. 

A lot of the Southampton first-team players are coming back as well which makes investment in them a lot more attractive.

When it comes to the Chip Strategy and use of the second Wildcard, a lot depends on your own team and how the fixtures look in Gameweek 26 and onwards once the FA Cup results are in. 

I am writing this article before all the latest FA cup games have been played and I’m patiently waiting for the chips to fall into place.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article as I tried loud thinking and noting all the factors you should consider before deploying your chips. Do let me know in the comments section how you find this article and if I missed out on any factors I should consider. If you want to know more, we will be recording the next episode of The FPL Wire on Thursday evening.

    so am i right in thinking if were assuming Chelsea win tonight then gameweek 29 could consist of

    WEST HAM VS ARSENAL
    FULHAM VS LEEDS
    BRIGHTON VS. NEWCASTLE

    THEN
    SPURS VS SOUTHAMPTON (ONLY IF WOLVES WIN TONIGHT)

    if soton & chelsea win tonight we'll be down to 3 matches??

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      yeah, but then Villa - Spurs can move to BGW29

    2. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If Southampton win, the PL could decide to use that weekend for the postponed Villa-Spurs game.

      Both out of the cup so would have a free weekend then.

      1. Ha.
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I guess I'm rooting for a Southampton win then!

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

      No, only if Saints win it’s possible to move Spurs-Villa to gw29.

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Still great for an FH

  2. HuthTheMagicDragon
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Feels like a day at the beach, yellow flags everywhere! Was so smug when DCL moved up 0.1m...karma!

  3. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    isn't always the case that when you feel like you're set and ready to roll a FT comfortably, everything falls apart!

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

      A metaphor for my life in these times.

    2. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Rolling transfers is for the boring!

  4. Mattymo23
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    No idea how to prepare for DGW 26 and BGW29 without a FH. Still have all other chips. Any advice?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Tc gw29 to minimise the damage

      1. jomikijiq
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        that is a terrible advice

    2. Sir Edo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Hopefully if Villa Spurs go ahead gw29 it makes it easier to navigate..

  5. Your Man With The Hair
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Sorry for a question that's probably been asked a hundred times already.

    DCL & Justin... completely Donald Ducked? Or are the 75% yellow flags accurate?

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

      Doubts. Both doubts - at the moment. My interpretation is it looks rather bleak for Dom though.

      1. Your Man With The Hair
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I've read a couple of places Justin might have blown the knee badly too.

    2. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Wait for more news (tomorrow).

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Since Justin was stretchered off, I’d say he knackered. DCL limped off, but since it’s probably a hamstring injury, he’s probably out as well

    4. leonickroberts
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I've got DCL, Justin, Digne, Dias and Pope. Last night was not a good night...

  6. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Is taking a hit this week to roll a transfer next into DGW26 a risk or a good idea? I have no clue now

    1. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Taking a hit this week to get a DGW player, who also doubles in 26, is probably a great idea. You might want to give them a fitness test first though.

  7. Jafooli

    Who else is close to chucking in the towel with all this madness? I no longer have a clue what to do 😆

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Something will reveal itself. The fact you're even on here means you're more prepared for things like this than 90% of other players.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I’ll be amazed if I can come through this with something resembling a decent score.

        Was also set for BB’ing and having 23 x games to look forward to. Now 3 x flags and all planned transfers in are flagged too 😀

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

      I'll come up for air on Saturday morning. Right now I want to bury my head in the sand.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Ha, this....

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      What other hobbies and interests do you have?

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Sticking knitting needles up my nose....

    4. denial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If was going to have chucked in the towel this season, it would/should have been months ago. It is total madness and not very enjoyable.

      Is it time for FPL to bring in 2FTs a week just so we can clear out the knackered players?

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

        To be fair, the newly-crocked players are all popular picks, so it's a level-enough playing field.

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

          Yes, it's just not much fun bringing in one player to replace an injured player only for them to get injured. There's a different vibe to the game.

      2. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Agreed & agreed....

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      Can i offer you an egg in this trying time?

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Please do...

  8. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    So TOT vs AVL & AVL vs TOT might be a DGW in 37? 😮

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Or it can be rescheduled to GW29 too if Soton win tonight.

    2. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If Southampton lose in the Cup, Spurs will probably still double in 26 (against Villa or Fulham).

  9. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    If DCL confirmed out, do I (luckily I still have my FT) go for:

    A) Richarlison
    B) Kane (Kane was my move with my 2FT anyway next week, likely to blank this week but good medium term move)

    I'd be tempted to hold, but have Antonio, Dias and Pope also flagged.

    1. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      What about Ings?

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

        I've got DCL and Antonio, and one free transfer. I'm looking at either Ings or Cavani.

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Southampton are just horribly out of form, and would make Kane in 26 difficult.

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

            Note: Ings just put up 4 shots in the box & 2 big chances vs. Newcastle... he was denied a cast iron penalty & had an onside goal rules offside vs. Villa... he suffered due to the early red card in the utd match... southampton are getting players back... he has a double in GW25 & is unquestionably one of the best strikers in the league - not just as simple as dismissing Southampton out of hand imo

            If I had the transfers I'd be considering Ings for GW25 then move him to Kane for Kan'e DGW26

            1. Mweene
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Didn't they have 9 men for some of that?

            2. FPL Pillars
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              I like the Ings pick

        2. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Also looking at Cavani- looks pretty nailed this week given he was rested in the cup but still see him as a rotation risk for the future

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Likelihood of the following players playing both games?

    A. Digne
    B. DCL
    C. Pope

    1. King Kohli
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Pope would be most likely if I had to guess.
      Best to wait for more news.

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A 50%
      B 1%
      C 99%

  11. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Planning to BB 24 WC 26 FH 29.
    Which 2 or 3 players would you remove for BB this week?

    Martinez Meslier*
    Cancelo Stones Coufal Konsa Taylor*
    Salah Bruno Son Gundo Soucek
    Antonio* Bamford Adams

    2 FT 5.4 itb

  12. No Kane, No Gain!
    • 1 Year

    Good to Go?

    De Gea
    Cresswell, AWB, Cancelo, Dias
    Gundo, Bruno, Salah, Maddison
    Antonio, DCL

    (Matrtinez, Targett, Son, Wilson)

    1. Mweene
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would start Son over DCL if he looks like missing the Fulham game.

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Jealous. At least bump Son up to first sub if you're gonna bench him.

    3. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Are you using the BB?

      1. No Kane, No Gain!
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        No, just not convinced Sonw ill get many pts against City and can't see if Targett is playing twice, on the fixtures page it has them down twice, but squad selection page once?

        1. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Only the once for Targett!

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Gundo is absolutely smashing the captain poll - does it need a reset to account for all the injuries

    1. Mweene
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'm considering selling him for Sterling with my FT and (c).

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      he was already smashing it from what I saw.

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

      If he looks like playing DM, I'd want to change my vote, yeh. But to whom? The City defenders look less appealing, and DCL is prolly out.

      1. Mweene
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Sterling looks the standout option to me now.

        Fernandes 2nd.

    Does anyone currently have:

    Pope
    Dias - Justin - Digne
    Rodriguez
    DCL - Antonio

    There must be someone....

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Brutal if you do.....

    2. Mweene
      • 7 Years

      I only have Justin out of those.

      Lucky I suppose but that's just how my season is going so far.

    3. 2OLEgend
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I got Pope. Dias, DCL and Antonio. Feels like this is my last season with fpl

      • Pompel

        Think they will all be fine - except for DCL , who I have

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

        4 of them - can't put a full team out.

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I got 4 of those.

        I have a feeling Pope will be fine though it's just a feeling.

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

        I have 4.

        What's the story on Pope? He will be alright?

        Just going to play transfers on Friday or Saturday morning.

        Why anyone would transfer players before the FA Cup matches is beyond me.

      • Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Planned to get Pope & Digne with 2 x FTs, currently have Justin, DCL & Antonio 😆

        Which WC/BB/TC would you choose for that team?
        Just do Robo to Burnley def for this week?

        Martinez/Martin
        Robo/Cancelo/Stones/Justin/Coufal
        Salah/Bruno/Grealish/Gundo/Stephens
        DCL/Antonio/Bamford

        Should I just do DCL to Ings now?

        I mean he has a double in gw25.

        Any news on DCL injury?

        1. Mweene
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Even just a slight tweak of the hamstring should make it too risky to play him a few days later.

          If they had Fulham in the second game he might be worth keeping.

        2. Arteta
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          On DCL and his injury...

          "Dominic's our main striker up there, he's scored another great goal tonight. Obviously we'd miss him if he wasn't playing but I thought the lads showed good character when he went off the pitch and we still got our goal, didn't we?
          He was complaining about his hamstring when he came off the pitch so he might have tweaked his hamstring but I haven’t got any assessment on him yet. Hopefully it's not too bad."

        Josh King TC this week?

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years

          He’s got a goal tally to rival Brewster this season. What an enticing prospect.

        Having early-transferred myself into something of a quandry, I think I'm going to Free Hit my way out of it. Already set up well enough for 25-26 (and will want to use TC in 26), and the upside in 29 looks pretty limited.

        Go big or go home.

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years

          What did you do and who do you have? Not a bad week to free hit although most will tell you otherwise.

        DCL will not be able to make it for DGW26 right?

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Don't think he'll be risked for the Fulham game, which kind of ruins him as an option.

          Unlikely I'd say, and underlines the importance of a strong bench this season. Fortunately I have Jack and Son 1 and 2 on my bench so reasonable cover...but the prospect of losing DCL for the Fulham game still shucks!

            I'm seeing a little bit of chatter about Foden being a good option.

            I got him as my third City (with Dias and Sterling) for DGW19. He then:

            Didn't start, blanked.
            Blanked.
            Got hooked on 50 minutes, blanked.
            Blanked.
            Didn't play at all.

            got no returns in that time, so obviously i didn't play him at Anfield.

            It's been a misery owning him. I was dead-set on selling for Gundo this week to have something more reliable. I'm now confused as to whether i should keep him, or if everyone is just about to mistakenly fall into the same trap I did.

            I'm not asking a question really. He's just been a pain!

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Keep. He's great in the big games.

              1. Black Knights
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                He has, but then he also missed LIV and man completely, and only got 18 mins at spu. It's so frustrating, especially when Gundo has been metronomically hauling.

                There was 0.8m difference in their price in DGW19. There's now 0.1m lol.

            2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              He's a Grade A FPL Troll - very unreliable but just off the back of a big haul so will attract attention. Obviously very talented too though

            3. rnrd
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              I think a strategy of Foden DGW24+ 25 becoming Jota (if fit) for the pool potential DGW26 is an agressive but very interesting plan

          • rnrd
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            For us who also do sports, we know there's also a post-injury fear factor that makes us be a bit over-cautious.
            What is actually reported as a twicked hamstring could possibly be extra-cautiousness by DCL who decided to get off before a propre setback.

            Then you get a scan and if everything's fine, you're cleared and go to go.

            I wouldn't be selling DCL today and wait for more news

            Watching Everton v Spurs, DCL didn’t seem too concerned as he came off

              2 months, 1 day ago

              He might have saved the hamstring tearing but I can imagine at least a mini period out. I’d be surprised if he played against Fulham.
