How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 25

Just over one-third of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers are tripled-up on Leeds assets for Double Gameweek 25.

According to LiveFPL.net, 34.9% of them came into the latest round of fixtures with Patrick Bamford (£6.9m), Raphinha (£5.4m) and Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) in their team.

While Friday night was not the best of starts to the Gameweek for this trio, it could still be a powerful combination be against Southampton.

A wave of investment in Raphinha appears to be the main reason for the popularity of that triple-up.

The midfielder has broken into the top 10k’s most-owned players for Double Gameweek 25 having risen to 53.5% ownership at this level.

Ilkay Gündogan‘s (£6.1m) increased from 79.3% to 85.2% suggesting very few pounced at the short-term opportunity to sell him for Leeds’ set-piece taker.

And, despite dropping to the fifth-most top-10k midfielder, Son Heung-min (£9.5m) also earned more backers, rising from 52.2% to 53.3% backing at this level.

It was Jack Grealish (£7.7m) who looks to have been a popular route to Raphinha. He was the fifth-most popular top-10k midfielder for Double Gameweek 24 with 44.2% ownership. Following Friday’s deadline, he sits in just 28.9% of squads here.

There was still some investment in Dallas and Bamford for Double Gameweek 25, solidifying their already strong presence in the top 10k.

The defender rose from 51.9% ownership to 67.6%, becoming the top 10k’s most popular defender in the process.

Bamford was already their favourite forward but still had room to increase his top-10k ownership from 88.9% to 97.9%.

Meanwhile, Danny Ings (£8.4m) has broken into the template ahead of his two fixtures, already the second-most-fashionable forward at this level (41.5%).

Despite a Double Gameweek against Southampton (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) looks to have been one of the fall guys here.

He was in 45.9% of top-10k teams for Double Gameweek 24 but resides only in 13.6% now.

And Michail Antonio (£6.6m) was almost certainly involved in Ings’ transfers considering his massive drop-off too.

65.7% of the top 10k owned the West Ham man for Double Gameweek 24 while only 36.1% still had him after Friday’s deadline.

The captaincy is something of a one-sided story in Double Gameweek 24.

82.0% of the top 10k backed Bamford with the armband, making him one of those most backed in one Gameweek so far this season. His effective ownership for the round stands at 180.7%.

The Leeds striker certainly has work to do after blanking against Wolves on Friday night.

That two-point score will certainly have eased some fears of the 6.4% of top-10k managers who captained Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) for Double Gameweek 25.

Despite playing just once this week, the Manchester United man is preparing to face a Newcastle defence that has conceded twice in six of its last seven outings.

Raphinha was the third-highest for top-10k captaincy backing (5.5%) while Ings (2.9%) and Gündogan (0.9%) came fourth and fifth respectively.

Double Gameweek 25 Scout Picks features Leeds triple-up

It will certainly be interesting to see what transfers transpire between now and Saturday’s Double Gameweek 26 deadline.

There will be 14 teams enjoying two fixtures making for the biggest Double Gameweek of the 2020/21 season.

For all the heavy investment this week, Leeds are not one of those sides, although have a relatively favourable single Gameweek fixture at home to Aston Villa.

In total, 10 players from the matrix of 15 in the top 10k most-owned matrix have two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, so many of the managers at this level could be approaching a stacked-enough squad to warrant a Bench Boost.

As things stand, Dallas, Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m), Raphinha, Bamford and Antonio are the five popular top-10k assets scheduled to play just once in Double Gameweek 26.

6.4% of the top 10k have already laid the groundwork for Double Gameweek 26 by playing their Wildcard.

The Free Hit and Bench Boost received very little attention this week, although we can expect a bump for both of them next time out.

Meanwhile, just 1.1% played their Triple Captain for Double Gameweek, most of them handing it to Bamford.

Considering the higher-than-usual attention for Wildcards in the top 10k this week, it is worth looking at the trends they set.

As things stand, there is a slightly higher proportion of players with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, with 11 of this template fitting that description compared to 10 in the main ownership matrix.

Interestingly, a large number of Wildcarders still tripled-up on Dallas, Raphinha and Bamford while Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) was also included for Southampton’s Double Gameweek 25.

The most notable differences between this Wildcard template and the rest of the top 10k appear to be 66.8% inclusion for Luke Shaw (£5.0m) and renewed interest in Spurs assets.

55.6% of these Wildcarders selected Son while 62.3% of them went for Harry Kane (£11.1m).

    Ayling and Ings > Dias and Kane (TC) -4 will give this team for dgw 26, should be enough right ?

      Yes.

  4. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Is Pope (tot, LEI) -> Martinez (lee, shu) worth a -4?

    The fear is real!

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope.

      Similar position myself, I’m getting target to cover my backside

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Is he doing that sort of service? Fair play, it is getting boring these days

      2. Vertigo

        Get a shower after.

    4. NateDogsCats
        2 months, 17 days ago

        For -4 I don't know, but Spurs are one of those teams that regardless of current form have a habit of thrashing Burnley

    5. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      What to do here? 1ft 7.2itb

      --Martinez
      --Digne--Mee--Dias
      --Salah--Bruno--Gundo--Soucek
      --Bam--DCL--Watkins

      --Johnstone--Raphinia--Dallas--Cresswell.

      a) Soucek+Raphinia to Barnes+Son for a hit,TC Son.
      b) a+Cresswell to Maguire for -8, BB with 13 dgws.

      Thanks guys.

      1. MightyGar
          2 months, 17 days ago

          B, with the upside it gets rid of the bench boost which will make future planning clearer

      2. Shaw must go on

        Would you get Dcl or Watkins for gmw26?

          DCL. Especially if Grealish is actually out

              2 months, 17 days ago

              Dean Smith failed to mention he had a fairly serious injury. Apparently has previous for this, doing the same thing when they were in the Championship.

                Ok havent heard anything about this, so he is out for the dgw ?

                1. Mr. O'Connell

                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  Don't know yet. But rumours are, yes. Start thinking about replacements. I wish I'd believed them a bit more and got rid of him instead of Foden, but felt whatever I did would be wrong.

                  Rumours he may be out for over a month

        Could be nice option in gw27 are you just going to buy him back?

        Tempted to take a - 8 for Ings and 2 Leeds lads for a BB. Which would you do?

        Ings, Dallas & Raphina to
        A) DCL, Grealish, Lowton
        B) DCL, Foden, Target

        C) Don't take a - 8 and just transfer 1 out

        1. Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I'd keep Rahinha

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Raphinha too

      8. Firmino
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Struijk or Mitchell for BB? How long is Kalvin Phillips out? Will Struijk play GW29?

      9. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        While Bamford does score goals. His big chance conversion rate is poor. If Leeds harbour hopes of being a Top 8 side (and maybe they don't) then they should open the chequebook and sign a top FW and CB. Won't come cheap though.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Don’t think they’ll be able to sign anyone much better than him without paying 30m +

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            As I said, it won't come cheap.

        2. Party time
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          They need a top foreign cb, 1 winger, attacking & defensive midfielder from other leagues in Europe

          1. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            What, just 'foreign' and plays middle of defence? How do?

            1. Party time
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              With Cooper

          2. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Wily Boly and Danny Ings.

        3. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          They signed Rodrigo for that but Bamford has been performing decent so they're playing Rodrigo in mid. Koch and Llorente for CB position.

        4. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          You've just invented 'Top 8'.

          What is that? You get nothing for eighth. Just one better than ninth. Two better than bottom half.

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I think it’s legitimate to say top 8. You know a team isn’t realistically going to break into those top European spots so they’re competing as the best of the mid-table teams.

            1. Bennerman
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Each to their own. Personally don't think 'top 8' as a bracket confers anything

        5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

          • 11 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Having not watched Bamford before this season, and now having watched about 20 games he’s surprised me with just how good a player he is

          Extremely unselfish, intelligent, tireless worker, absolute unit, lightning pace, good right foot, great left foot, incredible in the air & proper team player/very little ego...

          Like a cross between Van Nistelrooy, Berbatov & Michael Owen

          Would take him at Man Utd in a heartbeat

          Big chances & XG & all that jazz are a nonsense unfortunately

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Players (and teams) face such ridiculous criticism from so-called fans. I know the average age of posters here doesn’t help.

            Criticism of players like Bamford, DCL, Rashford etc. is so common-place.

            I agree with what Maximus says. Bamford has been class this season.

            1. Bennerman
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I agree with this on criticism, absolutely.
              The age of the overstatement, as that clever bloke sang in his side project

            2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Yep - I'm as harshly critical as the next man when it comes to sitting in my armchair and judging freakishly talented athletes as being "crap" - but it's more the selfish best kid in the playground types that grind my gears, your mahrezes and your lamelas & your benrahmahs - and Salah - who prefer an extra 4 touches of the ball to an early pass, or an impossible shot to a pass

              To be fair to Salah he backs it up with his ability

              But Rashford in particular attracts a ridiculous amount of criticism

              Bruno actually gets it too from a (fast shrinking) group of folks/agegroup/demographic - it's always interesting when you see someone posting "I don't get the fuss about Bruno", "Bruno had done nothing again", "he only scores penalties", "he's not creative enough", "he's just lucky". Etc etc

              No patience in the world anymore

          2. Bennerman
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Agree with first para MBP.

            But what matches have you seen lightning pace and unit in? Some other guy?

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years

              Lol “lightning” is a bit tongue in cheek - but he fairly shifted for the breakaway goal vs Chelsea & assist vs Leciester for example

              Physically I thought he’s been very dominant at corners & IFK’s, gets on the end of a lot of headers vs. centrebacks etc & his hold up play is good, seems to win plenty of frees with his back to goal etc

                Fair shout! Looks a bit weak and constantly knackered to me, but have also been surprised by his quality on ball, my fault for hardly watching any Championship football

            I played football against Bamford in school age groups, and in 6 a side kick about type stuff (he was a mate of a mate) - he was 4 years younger and head and shoulders above everyone. A number of the lads were in youth ranks of Nottingham/Derby/Leicester. He stood out as miles ahead of anyone else.

              I could definitely picture that scene

              The game against villa this season he was in that type of mood - just different gravy to the other guys around him - who also happened to be premier league level defenders

        Should I take a -8 to bring in Kane (and keep son, salah, Bruno)?
        A) Ings, Bamford, mee, to
        Kane, brewster, white (-8)
        B) son and bamford to Kane and lookman (-4)

          Brewster in for -8. Sorry can’t condone this!
          B is ok but losing 2 good players. Don’t think Kane is must have (besides the herd that will bring him in)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Not a -8. Maybe B could pay off

          Very much considering bring in either DCL & Grealish (if not injured) or alternatively Watkins & J-Rod for a -4.

          Liking the moves, but just wait until we've seen how the likes of Ings & DCL play this weekend before making any moves

        At least I've got no decision to make whether to bench boost or not:

        Injured: Grealish
        SGW: Ings, Bamford, Dallas, Raphinha
        SGW and bad fixture: Coufal (mci)
        Don't play: Forster, Mitchell

        Free hit or wildcard could be on the cards

      14. Vazza
          2 months, 17 days ago

          What to do here guys?

          A. Grealish => Barnes/Maddison (free)

          B. Areola => Martinez (free)

          C. Grealish, Fodder => ESR, DCL (4pt hit)

          D. Areola, Grealish => Martinez, Barnes/Maddison (4pt hit)

          E. Areola, Grealish, Fodder => Martinez, ESR, DCL (8pt hit)

          Note: ESR will be a bench fodder for most weeks..

          Still have FH for GW29

            Id probably say yes, sterling is not delivering for his price, especially when you have gundo in the same team doing what he's doing.

          Hate early transfers, but had exact funds for cavani to kane, so made the move last night.

          Ita going to come back and haunt me!

            I played WC & last night swapped Ings to Kane. I can see a couple of rises if he plays well this weekend.

          2. Party time
            • 2 Years

            Is kane injured?

              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              No no.. just saying that having played the ft, knowing my luck he either will, or someone else in my squad will!

          3. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            To be fair, if you had the exact money then it was worth the risk (probably).

            It's early transfers to simply make 0.1/0.2 cash when it's not really needed that are the silly ones to make this season

            Last time I made early transfer, it was for Kane. Seeing him get get both ankles injured wasn't funny. Thought about it yesterday, but could afford to wait, so didn't want to burn with him again... So he should be fine now.

          DGW 26 play all DGW players & bench Leeds?

          Play a Leeds & bench DGW player?

          Currently on a -4pts for next week. Is it worth doing Bamford + Soucek to DCL + ESR for everton cover for -12pts? Team would look like-

          Pope
          Cancelo Stones Konsa
          Salah Son Gundo Son
          DCL Kane Watkins

          Grealish out would mess up my plans big time, probably need to take a -8 then or wildcard. If I wildcard I cant TC though. Starting to go really bad this season

              Why -8

              For one player ?

            • 2 Years

            Ings will bag 2 goals today, could even be more

            1. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 17 days ago

                I went with my gut and captained him so I hope you're right! Will be curious to see how Chelsea deal with Saints though, they've been good defensively under Tuchel but they've had a run against some fairly blunt teams, these next few games will show if they're actually as tight at the back as people think or not

                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  If Struijk is sure to play I'd go for it. I'm BB' ing something similar. I've got a bit of bench boost fatigue now, just want to get it out of the way.

                I have BB, WC and TC left.

                I can put out mainly all DG players next week so thinking TC Kane but want to know what people are doing for the big blank? Anyone using a chip or just navigating it with transfers then wildcard after?

                      I’ve started him over Cancelo this week. He’s my main differential I suppose and fancied him against Southampton.

                      I think he starts obviously.
