The merits of a Gameweek 26 Wildcard and what my new FPL squad could look like

How Fantasy Premier League managers navigate the upcoming series of Double Gameweeks could prove season-defining for many of them.

We are currently facing the potential for back-to-back Double Gameweeks in 24, 25, 26 and 27, which is exciting indeed.

The bigger of the Doubles is likely to be in Gameweek 26 and traditionally, the practice has been to Wildcard before this sort of round so you are ready to Bench Boost in it. What is different this year is that the big Double Gameweek does not fall in Gameweek 34 or 37 like previous seasons, but much earlier. 

With it falling at a later stage, there was less worry about setting up long-term for the rest of the season but using the second Wildcard as early as Gameweek 25 means that you have to make sure you don’t handicap yourself by getting tunnel vision and looking solely at the Gameweek 26 fixtures alone. 

What is beneficial though, is that most of the top teams, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Spurs, have the Double Gameweek in 26 and assets from these teams are good picks long-term. 

However, due to these expensive assets having a Double Gameweek, setting up a Bench Boost team is quite tricky. I had a go at a potential Wildcard team, with a view to Bench Boost in Gameweek 26, which you can see below. There is £2.6m in the bank there to convert Danny Ings (£8.4m) to Harry Kane (£11.0m).

The Bench Bwho have a single Gameweek fixture at home to Aston Villa, which is decent and Leeds on their day can score a few past anyone. 

Still, they’ve not been as free-scoring at home so this could be a disappointment. Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) would be the Bench Boost keeper, but I am a little bit concerned about his recent performances and Fraser Forster (£4.0m) waiting in the wings.

Antonio Rüdiger’s (£4.6m) possible Gameweek 26 fixtures are Manchester United (home) and Liverpool (away) so I am not really confident about a clean sheet in either. Matthew Lowton (£4.5m) is likely to have Spurs and Leicester where, again, I don’t feel too confident about his point potential. 

Now let’s have a look at what I could do by focusing most of the money in the starting eleven while still retaining five starting defenders.

Right off the bat, I like having Jack Grealish (£7.8m), he is as nailed as it gets with the European schedule coming up and I trust Villa’s attack to deliver. I included James Justin (£5.2m) as a placeholder as he can be changed for any other Leicester defender now that we know about his long-term injury. The Foxes have a great run of fixtures from Gameweek 27 with Brighton (away), Sheffield United (home), although are not playing in Blank Gameweek 29.

Jannik Vestergaard’s (£4.7m) potential Double Gameweek 26 is not as appealing, which could see Southampton travel to Everton and Spurs but the Saints play Sheffield United (away), Brighton (home), Burnley (home) and West Brom (away) between Gameweeks 27 and 31 which I like. Ben White (£4.4m) is also a great budget option from a decent defensive side. 

Another factor that cannot be underrated – information. Closer to Gameweek 26, we will have more clarity about injuries, European rotation, upcoming doubles and in general can set up the Wildcard better for the rest of the season. 

Like many of you, I have left plenty of points on the bench in the last few weeks and while we have been fortunate that money was not an issue with many of the heavy hitters injured or out of form, it is likely to be scarce going forward. 

I really don’t like having to make a decision who to bench out of Raphinha etc every week. Yes bench strength could be useful but most of the players I have picked are reliable starters. I also want to have every last bit of cash available going forward and not have it tied up in the likes of a bench goalkeeper, and/or an eighth attacker. That’s about £1.5m which can go a long way in the coming Gameweeks. 

This is how my team currently looks:

I have two free transfers and £3.0m in the bank for Double Gameweek 24. Before the flags on Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and Michail Antonio (£6.7m), I was pretty set on using the two free transfers on Eric Dier (£4.9m) to James Tarkowski (£5.3m) and Forster to Nick Pope (£5.5m) and activating my Bench Boost. 

The flags on those two forwards have made things a bit trickier. I don’t mind taking a hit for Ings this week as I was planning to do that next week anyway. I could then do Tomas Soucek (£5.4m) to Raphinha and possibly another hit for Dallas to ‘dead-end’ my team in Gameweek 25, and then Wildcard out the Southampton and Leeds assets in Gameweek 26. I am not too keen on taking a minus-eight just to Bench Boost though. 

I imagine a lot of us are in the same boat, I was initially thinking of even navigating Gameweek 26 without using the Wildcard but West Ham not having a Double then has made that a bit tricky. 

I should also mention that I have my Free Hit chip intact, so navigating Gameweek 29 is not that much of an issue. 

Plenty to think about! Hope this article gave you food for thought, thanks for reading.

        Cheers

        Next transfer is Ings for Antonio all being well

    Thanks

    1. wantsharptv
      • 8 Years

      I regularly sold son for sterling but if u have him u need to play him

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 hours ago

      Tough
      Lean towards B as Sheff Utd are still poor upfront (only put 1 past 10 men Bristol in the FA Cup) and because the defence is more vulnerable I think on Coufal's side

    3. Petey Pablo
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 hours ago

      I’m playing Coufal.

  5. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    GW 25: seriously considering Salah, Antonio out > Kane, Raphinha in.

    Gives me a great TC option, 2 extra games and more cover for the BGW.

    A - mental
    B - decent

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 hours ago

      B

    2. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    3. HaveYassineChikhaoui
        2 months, 8 hours ago

        Bit wary of getting rid of Salah ahead of a DGW and FUL following that, is there no other way of funding for Kane?

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Don't think so but open to ideas:

          Pope
          Dias Stones AWB Alonso
          Salah Bruno Son Gundogan
          Watkins Bamford
          (Martinez Antonio Grealish Dallas)

          1. HaveYassineChikhaoui
              2 months, 8 hours ago

              Yeah not many options with such a strong defence and that 3 in midfield already. I'd personally triple captain Son as I think:

              Salah Vs EVE, shu, CHE and FUL with Son TC
              beats
              Raphina Vs wol, SOU, AVL, whu with Kane TC

              but Raphina does give you another player in 29, so I see your logic. If your team looks good in 27 (and can overlook Salah Vs FUL) I think you can afford to bite the bullet.

        2. wantsharptv
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          I couldn't bring myself to bin salah

      • Fer Fuch's Ake
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 hours ago

        So if Gundo is off penalties (specially if Aguero makes an appearance), and potentially stuck with more defensive role, how's he still a lead captain option?

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Because literally all of that is conjecture.

        2. Mile Plankton
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          But is he off penalties and stuck more defensively?
          I don't think so.

          1. Fer Fuch's Ake
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 8 hours ago

            If you're captaining him thinking he's on PKs you may be very disappointed, but I take that he can still have more attacking role. Just seems that Foden would be have better ROI

            1. Mile Plankton
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 8 hours ago

              How many of his 9 goals have come from pens?
              I am captaining him because he is by far on the best form from all players in the game.

        3. Graham Zusi's Hair is …
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          city dont need penalties to score 4. and unless Kun is back who is to say he is off penalties? did I miss something? (besides his missed penalty, Pep kind of sort of backed him.)

        4. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Because he’s scored 92 points in 11 gwks

        5. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Sterling the better option this week, but Gundo more owned hence the poll result

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 hours ago

            Terrified of a benching . . .

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

          Both of those premises are highly dubious.

      • Mile Plankton
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 hours ago

        Play Sanchez or Martinez?
        Double up on Villa defence with Martinez and Targett, or spread chances with Sanchez?

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Martinez with Targett

          1. Mile Plankton
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 8 hours ago

            Yeah probably.
            I benched both against Arsenal and regret it.

      • ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 hours ago

        Quick one, Mee or Lowton?

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Lowton

        2. Bad Kompany
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 8 hours ago

          Mee is better but not by much at all so if you might need the money then go lowton

        3. HaveYassineChikhaoui
            2 months, 8 hours ago

            Mee, Lowton's boring

            1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              hahah yes!

              1. HaveYassineChikhaoui
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Hahahaha, knew this would come back to bite me - touché mate (hope you went Lowton)!

                  1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah

                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Yep picked Lowton solely due to budget! Very lucky

                    1. HaveYassineChikhaoui
                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        Damn this cursed high TV! Well played.

                • 6 Years

                Mee scores about once every 30 games, Lowton assists about once every 25 games.

                Neither. But Sterling if u must, have some decency.

                • 3 Years

            5. Bad Kompany
              • 3 Years

              Chances of Antonio starting? If he doesn’t would he be at risk of a cameo?

              1. Ibralicious
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                More likely to start but get hauled off early than cameo if it makes any difference.

              3. Mile Plankton
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                Imo, if he doesn't start, he doesn't play.

                • 9 Years

                More a risk of starting and pulling up

                Cheers all! Worried about him and think he’ll at least have his minutes managed. Have to decide who to bench out of him, cresswell, and bamford

              Draft question: Would you trade Willian Jose for Barnes?
              It's likely I'll be able to get him back anyway, but who knows.

              Who to bench?

              Digne
              Bamford
              Antonio
              Salah

              (currently, er .... Salah!)

              1. fcsaltyballs
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                Antonio out of those mate

              2. Fer Fuch's Ake
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                never bench salah, you may transfer him for sterling otherwise. Bamford of the bunch, or maybe even use the BB if you have it

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

                  No BB - DCL is sat there.
                  Actually if Antonio was 100% I'd start him over Salah, but I'm minded of a post above and the suggestion Tony might only be fit for half a game. I guess I'll bench him instead.

              3. Bad Kompany
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                Antonio or Bamford

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

                  No one suggesting Digne - he's 100% okay is he? Gives me the rare 5-at-the-back scenario.

                  1. Bad Kompany
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 8 hours ago

                    Not 100% at all. Would only expect 1 point from the city game. I’d probably bench Antonio because I’m not sure how much he’ll play. If he was fit though it might be digne. On second thought I probably wouldn’t want to bench bamford. Who are your other players?

                    1. Andy_Social
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      2 months, 8 hours ago

                      I'm not dropping Bamford - I'm with you re Antonio.
                      Double Chelsea, City, Burnley, Digne at the back
                      Double City, Bruno, now Salah
                      Bamford on his own in a 5-4-1.

                      Bench - Barkley, Antonio, DCL

                      1. Bad Kompany
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 8 hours ago

                        Who are you’re Chelsea defenders?

                        1. Andy_Social

                          2 months, 8 hours ago

                          Rudiger and James - both got half a game v Barnsley, should be fresh.

                          1. Bad Kompany
                            • 3 Years
                            2 months, 7 hours ago

                            Probably still Antonio (although I’d put him before Barkley on your bench) but rudiger could be another option. Similar cs chance as digne but less appearance points and less chance of attacking return

                            1. Andy_Social
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              2 months, 7 hours ago

                              I don't pass up a freebie CS - I'd play Rud ahead of Digne, but I'm going with all 5 if Digne is definitely fit for Fulham. I do actually have Tony before Barkley on the bench. Looks like I'll stick with this setup then.

              Dallas or DCL 1st bench spot?

                • 5 Years

                2 months, 8 hours ago

                Seems DCL is def out for Fulham game, so the choice is away to Arsenal or maybe play v City? I'd actually go for Dallas.

            11. fcsaltyballs

              Can’t decide who to bench out of:

              1. Soucek
              2. Robertson

                      Really don't think so. He has not looked good for months. Glad I got rid before last week.

                • 1 Year

                Both - I'd bench someone else

                1. Slurpy
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 8 hours ago

                  Team
                  Areola
                  Mee Lowton Stones
                  Sterling Fernandes Rashford Gundogan
                  Ings Watkins

                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 8 hours ago

                    I'd play Shaw and Bamford over Watkins

                    1. Slurpy
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 8 hours ago

                      That could be the answer brighton are solid

                      This. Nice team though.

                    2 months, 8 hours ago

                    I'd drop Watkins for this game. I think the Arsenal defence is more vulnerable than Brighton's.

                    1. Slurpy
                      • 5 Years

                Got to be both!
                Shaw 2nd highest xA in the game in the last 4 matches and strong CS chance
                Bamford's is on form and penalties
                I think you regret benching either

            13. Royal5
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 8 hours ago

              People are desperate this GW. Richarlison rising. He has 2 goals the whole season.

              1. Fer Fuch's Ake
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 8 hours ago

                Smashed it in the cup, should play up front with Josh King flanking him, has pens (if siggy isn’t on pitch)

                1. Royal5
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 8 hours ago

                  Still. Hopeful thinking. Says most about the lack of forwards this season.

                • 1 Year

                He's also not been playing as a striker ; which with DCL out one assumes he will.

                But he's been linked with a move to Barcelona!

                Or something like that.

              Pope.
              Cresswell, Stones, Cancelo, Mee, Digne.
              Salah, Gundogan (c), Fernandes, Soucek.

              0ft, 2.4m ITB. WC 25, BB 26.

              Had planned a BB this week but changing to 26 now.
              Need Leeds, Villa, South, Utd, Spurs etc so think WC next week is def the best option for me. Any thoughts on this?

                    Arsenal's defensive solidity was short-lived and now they're without Party to protect them, so I see goals both ends. Brighton are very solid at the back - I see a 0-0 there. So I'd play Bamford over Watkins for this one. And not Son.
