Which Double Gameweek 26 players are the Scout Networking considering?

The pool of viable players for Double Gameweek 26 of Fantasy Premier League is wider than ever – so how do we identify the best options?

14 teams have two fixtures scheduled for the next round of action which means a lot of research is needed before Saturday’s deadline.

With the biggest Double Gameweek of the season looming we asked the members of the Scout Network for their top picks.

Ted Talks FPL

West Bromwich Albion’s Mbaye Diagne

In the five games Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) has played for West Bromwich Albion, he has registered three attacking returns and has the second highest xGI per 90 amongst other forwards.

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) is a differential among teams in the top 500k with just 5% ownership, yet he has returned in his last two games and has the highest number of big attempts to score or assist in his last six matches.

FPL Nymfria

Everton’s Richarlison celebrates

With two goals in two games, Richarlison (£7.9m) could be a great pick for Double Gameweek 26. At just 6.8% ownership, he is a differential with great fixtures against Southampton and West Brom.

Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) isn’t cheap, but the Manchester City attack and the England international specifically are both back and firing. With three goals and one assist in the last five Gameweeks, Sterling is a great pick.

Manchester City’s Phil Foden

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) faces Southampton at home followed by West Brom away. Two teams he will get plenty of opportunities against, especially West Brom who have only won once at home this season. I expect him to return well for his owners.

My second pick is a bit of a gamble but after being rested in Double Gameweek 25 I think Phil Foden (£6.1m) could start both games in Double Gameweek 26, depending on what happens in the Champions League midweek. With six goals and five assists so far, he offers great potential in front of goal.

Barnes matches Vardy's output over last four ahead of Double Gameweek

Leicester City’s Harvey Barnes

Harvey Barnes (£6.8m) has been the biggest attacking threat of Leicester in the last few Gameweeks, with back to back double digit returns. Barnes is a great differential, against opposition that we can see Leicester scoring against in this Double Gameweek.

Calvert-Lewin and Everton’s confidence sky-high after a huge win in Merseyside derby. He has shaken off his recent injury, and with James Rodriguez (£7.7m) and Lucas Digne (£6.1m) looking in very good shape, Calvert-Lewin looks a good bet for attacking returns in Gameweek 26.

Kane and Son both return in new formation as Spurs breeze past Sheffield United 3

Harry Kane

Although Harry Kane (£11.1m) has blanked in Spurs’ last two Gameweeks, he did register eight goal attempts in that period which is joint top among FPL forwards. Two favourable fixtures against Burnley and Fulham looks a primed for a reversal of fortunes.

Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) lined up very advanced versus Aston Villa in Gameweek 25. In fact, his heatmap almost mirrored Barnes on the opposite flank. Leicester host Arsenal followed by a trip to Burnley and Pereira could prove to be a great differential with only 0.6% ownership.

FF Titan

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling

Since Gameweek 11, Sterling has only blanked three times in 14 starts. He already has nine goals and seven assists this season and is performing at the highest level of consistency. He is a triple captain possibility in our opinion.

Calvert-Lewin returned from injury for 28 minutes in Gameweek 25 where he earned a penalty. He already has 13 goals and assists assists to his name this season and faces a Southampton team who have not kept a clean sheet in seven games and West Brom who have the worst defensive record in the league.

Returning Digne can help Everton's attacking assets return to form in Gameweek 20

Everton’s Lucas Digne

Lucas Digne (£6.1m) has eight assists this season and Everton are brimming with confidence after a historic win at Anfield. Digne has registered three goal attempts in the last four Gameweeks and has put in 30 crosses during the same period. Clean sheets can be a concern but with two favourable fixtures, we can expect returns at both ends of the pitch. – Gerardo

Leicester continues to impress, and the goals and points are coming from midfield. In the last four Gameweeks, Barnes is second only to James Maddison (£7.3m) in goal attempts, however has more shots inside the box and a lower number of minutes per xG. If he continues this form we can expect 0.08 points per minute played from him, only surpassed by Ilkay Gündogan (£6.1m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m). – Leo

FPL Experiment

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne

Barnes has amassed 25 points in his last two games. He is showing a burst of form that coincides with the return of Vardy. The Leicester midfielder is only in 11% of teams too, which makes him a great differential for such a consistent performer.

The return of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) is very interesting too. Whether he is playing as a centre forward or marauding midfielder, when he’s on the pitch he is central to everything Manchester City do. With most managers focusing their attention elsewhere, an overlooked De Bruyne could provide the rank jump we’re looking for!

What’s happening in the Scout Network?

Scout Network: Thinking ahead to the blank and double Gameweek in 18 and 19

Last week FPLFamily‘s Sam was joined on Episode 6 of Scout The Gameweek by Pete from FPL Side Net from the Scout Academy. Sam and Pete looked back on Gameweek 24 and ahead to Gameweek 25.

The next episode will be released on Wednesday evening when Sam will be joined by Oscar from FPL Gents to look back on Gameweek 25 and ahead to Double Gameweek 26.

El Statto

El Statto’s website Jumpers For Goalposts now contains regular topic articles sure as the differentials XI which has had eight returns from the 11 picks, with success in Gameweek 25 too with Semedo & Lookman

El Statto also published a focus player snapshot on Ricardo Pereira, who is an out of position player in a team who is flying with great fixtures. He has also updated the season planner and updated the stats dashboard providing even more player and team insights.

FPL Greece

FPL Greece Streams twice every week on twitch.tv/fplgreece where Babis, Christos, and Dimitris, analyse previous Gameweek, preview the next Gameweek, and discuss their captaincy and differential picks.. Also there is a weekly check of FPL Greece league and Manager of the Month mini-league. They also started their third annual custom Cup competition in Gameweek 20 which has 700 participants.

FF Titans

It has been a busy week at FF Titans. They have launched a weekly review column to capture the thoughts of the gameweek to supplement their weekly BUY / SELL / KEEP picks.  Their weekly captain picks are now picked by a team of FPL pundits from around the world. They have also come up with a handy FPL glossary for the newbies in the game.

    Not sure why people are being so quick to sell Grealish when they could hold on till Villa press conference on Friday?... What am I missing here?

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      You're not going to get accurate information in that press conference - Dean Smith has already shown that he is willing to play games on this one

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Although this time, someone may ask him a direct question about it.

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Check his comments after the match when he was asked directly about it. He gave three different answers

          1. Qaiss
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Let’s see

      2. Niadu
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        True.... But I think it's still worth holding on till Friday. I mean if Grealish plays both games in this DGW, his haul could be massive!

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Of course. Not wise to do early transfers anyway.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He’s been really very average over last dozen or so fixtures anyway.

      1. Niadu
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Class is permanent, form is temporal.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          But he’s not the only class mid about and he’s been far less central to all things Villa over the last stretch

    3. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      You mean like the last press conference he gave?

      1. Niadu
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Of course I don't expect him to give away much in the Friday presser, but I'll wait and see before shipping him out. Could do a direct swap for Maddison depending on Leceister news.

  2. Qaiss
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Is there any update on how long Grealish could be out for or whether he might make Leeds?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Smith won't let that update happen

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Hmmm. Nasty bit of work he is.

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          He's far from being the worst. Nuno gets 1st place for sure.

    2. Ian Davis
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Villa will downplay it but I’d be surprised if he’s back within 2 weeks. Villa fan here..

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Cheers.

    3. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      After this uproar with Grealish rumours I bet Smith is going to be intentionally cryptic.

  3. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    This GW has been terribly disappointing so far. When last did only 6 or so players hit double figures in a normal GW?

    Hoping for a goal fest tonight

  4. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Pick 1
    A. Digne
    B. Shaw
    C. Ricardo Pereira

    1. Aster
        1 month, 21 days ago

        B

        CS potential against CP, and excellent going forward.

      • Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        C

        1. Aster
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Would you explain why Pereira over Shaw?

            The same way I did

          • Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Why C over the rest?

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              All of them have attacking potential, but:

              A - SOU and WBA. I see them conceding against both. Everton hasn't been too good against teams below them. Have had just two clean sheets the whole season.

              B - Just 4 clean sheets in the last 10. Did not play the full 90 in 2 of those. Plays Chelsea in his first.

              C - Played OOP last GW and looked deadly. Can get another game there. Leicester has kept more clean sheets than the other two. Loves to shoot. I see at least one goal in those two fixtures.

              1. Little Red Lacazette
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Well explained. Thanks.

        2. barton fc
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          C

        3. tbos83
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A, as he might have a double on 28

          • ZakyJ
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            C. played winger last week

        4. Bobby Digital
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Article makes me wanna triplecap Sterling or DCL...

          1. DannyDrinkVodka
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I don't trust Sterling starting both

            1. Bobby Digital
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              DCL or Bruno then? Got Rashford so going Bruno would be pretty heavy on utd...

        5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          With Henderson injured is there a chance Phillips plays there for the double?

          1. CABAYE4
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Possible but Klopp’s use of the young CBs has been odd - regularly rotated between them.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              True actually. Too much of a risk.

          2. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Listened to pod tonight. They’re up to their 18th CB pairing this season (and counting) and I don’t think any has lasted more than 3 consecutive games
            Depends if Klopp feels Fabinho needed in midfield (unlikely) which means interchange between Kabak Phillips and even Davies

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Thanks a lot! Definite uncertainty there. "Stay away" is the answer.

        6. ZakyJ
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Thoughts on Curtis Jones? is it likely he will start both games this week?

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Decent chance
            With Hendo out it would be nice to see Fabinho move back to midfield but unlikely.
            Not much faith in the rest of the midfield tbh. Though Jota back to full training

        7. Ronnies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Only way I can get Kane is my ditching 1 of the below. I'm going to TC Kane as I am chasing a 65 point lead in mini league.

          So who goes, you decide?!

          A) Salah
          B) Bruno
          C) Son
          D) Digne

          Surely Digne ? And yes I am aware he has a good double and maybe another in 28.

          Cheers.

            If you're losing Digne you're buying someone else in his place. Who?

          For those with WC, BB but used FH and playing TC this GW what do people see as the best plan?

          My current thoughts
          Use FTs to get 9 or so for GW29.
          WC shortly afterwards
          No idea when to BB - maybe leave it late in the hope some cheap starters emerge?

          1. Ruth_NZ
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            BB30 works well for those playing 29 with no FH. WC31 then follows perfectly.

            1. CABAYE4
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Interesting - will have to work it through but think I’d still have Coufal (wol), Johnstone (che), Mitchell (eve/0) on the bench with one FT and assuming no injuries.

              It does mean you can focus on first 11 for the WC which is attractive.

          On wc, which one is better?

          A KdB + Holgate
          B Son + Dias

          *have Kane, Gundo, Cancelo if that helps

          Best option on bb?

          A) Bamford > DCL
          B) Bamford + raphinha + dallas > DCL + reed + r.pereira - 8

          Think R.pereira offers an incredible differential with his fixtures and with the doubles think the hit could pay off, would probably want some of those leeds players back from 29 tho

          Here’s my team with playing BB this week:

          Martinez
          Stones Dias targett shaw
          Salah Bruno Barnes gundogan
          DCL Kane

          Areola Dallas raphinha bamford

          How many of the Leeds would you lose (don’t have FH)? Thinking bamford and Dallas to Watkins and sub 6m defender and keep raphinha

          1. ZakyJ
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Yeah, Maybe make that defender someone who also plays in week 29 so your not making yourself less prepared

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            In the same situation

            yeah like the look of that transfer, especially if you go R. Pereira as your defender

            Good moves for BB.
            Leicester defender might be worth considering for that spot.

          I'm going to take a -8 this week almost certainly in order to BB.

          Which is best?

          A) DCL, Barnes, Reguilon
          B) Kane, Lookman, Elmohamady

            I like A a lot out of those 2.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Me too. I'm on A atm. I can go Pereira as well, but I prefer Reguilon because of the game in 29 and it suits my overall plan better.

                Pereira yeeeesssssss

                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  I actually prefer Reguilon haha. Saves me a transfer in 29. The fixtures for defense are also better. Burnley, Fulham and Palace are 3 of the worst teams for xG.

                  Reguilon also compares favorably to Pereira offensively. In the last 6 matches played he has higher xG and xA.

                  If he doesn't start in Europe I think I'm gonna go for him.

              Tough 1.. A just

            • 9 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A looks more balanced. Would you captain Kane if you got him?

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              I'd certainly be tempted to.

              I think Bruno is best captain on paper though.

          3. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A is better but if you want to cap Kane then B.

          4. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I really like the look of A, but B has a good chance of matching/beating A and prepares better for GW29

            Tough one for me. If capping Bruno, I'll go with A

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Yep basically this.

              Although I can still field 9 in GW29 with plan A no hits required.

              Aiming for:

              Martinez
              Burn Reguilon
              Son Raphinha Grealish
              Kane Bamford Watkins

              With B I could get two more depending on whether I want to lose Digne and Gundogan/Fernandes for the FTs.

            • 3 Years

            A by far

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          If Grealish is confirmed out (or enough evidence to suggest he probably is) would it be the right decision to drop Watkins for Vardy on WC? I have Barnes already.

          Free Hit also available so not worried about the blank in 29.

          gona have this wc team for the weekend (subject to the city game)

          Martinez
          Dias, Stones, Bartley
          Son, Salah, Bruno (v), Gundog, Lookman
          Kane (c), DCL
          Subs - Mccarthy, Bamford, Strujik, Lewis

          Guess Rashford to Son is my best route into Spurs attack?

          Martinez, DDG
          Stones, Dias; Digne, Keane, Dallas
          Salah, Bruno, Rashford, Gundogan Raphina
          Watkins, DCL, Bamford

              Risky to go without Spurs?

              If keeping Rashford I consider Barnes for Raphina, as I have FH for GW 29

                barnes for raphinha looks better imo

          In a real dilemma, want to play my TC chip this week.. I have 3 main candidates for it, possibly 4, who would you pick?

          1. Kane
          2. Bruno
          3. DCL
          4. Salah

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Salah

            1. Hryszko
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Why Salah?

              1. John Nerdelbaum
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                The opposition might come into it

          2. Your Man With The Hair
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            has to be Kane.

            1. Hryszko
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              On Kane at the moment

          3. Stand By Mee

            1 or 3

          On a WC, how am I looking? No Free Hit

          Martinez Steer
          Stones Bavies Aina White Lewis
          Salah Sterling Bruno Gundo Saka
          Kane DCL Watkins

          1. aapoman
            • 7 Years

            Defence is super weak.

        21. Pepeye
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Agree KDB is rusty at the moment, 20 mins then 70 at Emirates, maybe a full return in CL then see how he looks for WHU fixture

        22. FPL Kaka
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I already own Martinez and am planning to bench boost, which defender should I get ?

          a) Targett

          b) Aina

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A

          2. OLLY G
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            It's close. Villa have better fixtures, but if you don't have a free hit, Fulham play in GW29.

            1. John Nerdelbaum
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Villa do as well

              1. OLLY G
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Of yeah, of course lol. My bad. Easily Targett then.

        23. OLLY G
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Who is the better Villa midfield punt?

          (A) Traore
          (B) Barkley

          Thanks.

          1. ZakyJ
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            A

            • 8 Years

            I wouldn't touch Barkley with a barge pole

        24. aapoman

          Which 3 premiums on WC?

          A. Bruno
          B. Salah
          C. KDB
          D. Kane

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            ABD

          2. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            KDB hasn't proven his worth over Gundogan and Sterling yet. He'll come good, but I'm not sure how reliable he is in fixture congestion when coming back from injury and the team's already been blowing everybody away without him

            Heck, I'd take Sterling over three players on that list. Sterling's purple patch started in GW11 and it still hasn't ended. He does this every season. Get him when he starts his run, sell him when he switches to his blank run

            Choosing from those options: ABD

        25. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          Anyone looking at Rodriguez?

          On much more limited minutes he has 2 hauls to DCL 3 hauls. DCL has been generally consistent rather than explosive.

          1. hullcityfan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            I’ve owned him for a while and he’s been quite frustrating with minutes being managed.

            I’ll obviously keep but think there’s better options in midfield.

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              A differential pick for sure

              But prefer his fixtures to Barnes on reflection and Everton have the benefit of no EL.

              Given the option of the two I’d be very close to bringing him in

              1. hullcityfan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Yeah definitely a lot of upside to him (arguably more than DCL as you say).

                It’s a tough choice (I own both him and Barnes) - feel Rodriguez has more upside but also more downside.

            Everyone is rushing to Barnes, but if Maddison is fit he is arguably a stronger bet, and if he isn't the team is weaker

          • Catastrophe

            Advice appreciated!

            A) Watkins & Barnes
            B) Watkins & DCL
            C) Watkins & Digne
            D) DCL & Barnes (-4).

            Bite the bullet and go for D and get Watkins in when Grealish returns?

            Cheers
