Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best and worst fixtures over the Double and Blank Gameweeks?

It’s been a while since our last “frisk” of the fixtures.

A succession of back-to-back Gameweeks, last-minute postponements and a drip-feed of rearranged fixture announcements have made the winter a tricky period for Fantasy managers.

Reacting to the very next Gameweek has been a challenge, never mind planning further ahead.

But following last Friday’s beautifully timed press release from the Premier League, we now know when the bulk of the outstanding matches will take place.

Aston Villa v Everton and Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton are the only two remaining games without a new date, with the former a possibility to be added to the pre-March international break calendar.

And it’s this period in particular that we’ll be addressing in this article, given that it includes two Double Gameweeks (potentially three, if Villa v Everton gets added to Gameweek 28) and one Blank Gameweek.

We’ll also have a cursory look at the calendar beyond this point, at the foot of this piece.

NEXT FOUR GAMEWEEKS: THE BREAKDOWN – AS IT STANDS


2 x fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, 1 x fixture in Blank Gameweek 29Spurs, Fulham, Aston Villa (3)
2 x fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, 0 x fixture in Blank Gameweek 29Everton, Leicester, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, West Brom, Sheff Utd, Man Utd, Wolves, Burnley, Chelsea (10)
2 x fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, 2 x fixtures in Double Gameweek 27, 0 x fixture in Blank Gameweek 29Man City (1)
1 x fixture in Double Gameweek 26, 2 x fixtures in Double Gameweek 27, 0 x fixture in Blank Gameweek 29Southampton (1)
1 x fixture in Double Gameweek 26, 1 x fixture in Blank Gameweek 29Arsenal, Leeds, Brighton, Newcastle, West Ham (5)

Spurs, Fulham and Aston Villa are the obvious teams to target for those Fantasy managers wanting a player with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26 and an unaffected game in Blank Gameweek 29.

Players we don’t already own from Arsenal, Leeds, Brighton, Newcastle and West Ham are low down the priority list this week but will become appealing again in the lead-up to Blank Gameweek 29.

Manchester City have back-to-back doubles starting from this weekend, while those holding onto Southampton assets have already begun a rollercoaster schedule that involves two Double Gameweeks, two single Gameweeks and a blank.

BEST AND WORST FIXTURES OF DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 26

Those who use our Season Ticker will have spotted that the new fixtures were added shortly after Friday’s announcement, with a rejig of the difficulty ratings following suit.

All of which leaves Everton (SOU | wba) at the top of our ticker if we look at Double Gameweek 26 in isolation, which those of us on a Free Hit will be doing.

The leakiest defences in the top flight await the Toffees over the next week, with Southampton and West Bromwich Albion the worst two clubs for goals conceded in 2021.

Even discounting the 9-0 thrashing at Old Trafford, Saints would still languish in the bottom three for that stat.

Those two teams, along with Everton themselves, it has to be said, have just one clean sheet apiece to their names this calendar year.

Tottenham Hotspur‘s (BUR | ful) brace of games perhaps looks better from a defensive perspective than it does attacking-wise.

Fulham and Burnley actually have the division’s joint-second-best defences over the last 15 Gameweeks, even if Nick Pope‘s (£5.6m) recent clean sheet record – four in 13 – is unremarkable.

The two sides may be capable of conceding, but they seldom get turned over.

Leicester City (ARS | bur) also face the shot-shy Clarets and an Arsenal side who have largely struggled for goals against the Champions League-chasing elite.

How Aston Villa fared without Grealish ahead of Double Gameweek 26

Aston Villa‘s (lee | shu) double-header is among the most appealing, not least because the Villans have excelled on the road this season.

An injury to Jack Grealish (£7.7m) looks like it may deprive Fantasy managers of the opportunity to field the Villa talisman against two suspect backlines, with Sheffield United’s defence injury-hit and out of form (one clean sheet all season) and Leeds’ own rearguard capable of self-combusting in any given game.

At the other end of our Season Ticker, Chelsea‘s (MUN | liv) defensive solidity under new boss Thomas Tuchel will be put to the test against two of the ‘big six’, while Pope may be relying heavily on save points in Burnley‘s (tot | LEI) two Double Gameweek 26 matches.

BEST AND WORST FIXTURES OF GAMEWEEKS 26-29

Those clubs with an extra fixture will naturally gravitate towards the top of our Season Ticker anyway but Aston Villa (lee + shu |WOL | new | TOT) and Spurs (BUR + ful | CRY | ars | avl) do have decent runs regardless, with ragged defences in Newcastle and Palace awaiting after Double Gameweek 26.

All of Leicester‘s next four opponents (ARS + bur | bha | SHU) are in the bottom half for goals scored in 2020/21, meanwhile.

Assets from these three clubs may well form the backbone of many Gameweek 26 sides, given that they tick multiple boxes: an appealing double-header in the coming Gameweek, attractive fixtures immediately after, and, in Spurs and Villa’s case, the bonus match in Blank Gameweek 29.

West Brom’s post-Double Gameweek schedule (BHA + EVE | new | CRY) is also positive-looking, for those considering a differential Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) pick.

The West Ham (mci | LEE | mun | ARS) love affair might be temporarily over in FPL, as they are among the six teams without two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26 and have some iffy upcoming matches in terms of difficulty.

Their next three opponents, including runaway leaders Manchester City, are all in the top five for goals scored in 2020/21.

Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) and co will be back on the menu and dusted down off benches in Gameweek 29, however.

A clash with Palace is the only real favourable fixture for Manchester United (che + cry | mci | WHU) over the coming three Gameweeks, meanwhile.

Trips to two of the division’s most in-form defences sandwich that match against the Eagles and Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) didn’t score in any of the reverse fixtures of his three games in Gameweeks 26 and 27.

Chelsea‘s (MUN + liv | EVE | lee) next four games are all against teams in the top half for goals scored in 2020/21: should they emerge from that period with a couple of clean sheets or more, then their in-form defenders will be high on the priority list for Gameweeks 30-34.

EUROPEAN SCHEDULES

Image

Just to further complicate matters, European football has recommenced over the last week.

Moderator Legomane has produced a matrix above which illustrates when the other, non-Premier League fixtures will take place over the coming month.

Manchester City are playing twice a week, every week, until the March international break, while Spurs, Leicester and Manchester United will follow suit if they continue to progress in the Europa League.

Expect a spot of rotation from these teams (among others), with Pep Guardiola indeed saying after Wednesday’s win over Borussia Monchengladbach:

GAMEWEEK 30 ONWARDS

It’s worth a brief look at the schedule beyond Blank Gameweek 29, as some Fantasy managers will be “dead-ending” their squads for that decimated, four-match Gameweek and activating their Wildcard straight after.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal sit towards the top of the Season Ticker from this point.

Wolves’ run from Gameweeks 31-35 (ful | SHU | BUR | wba | BHA) stands out, while Arsenal face the bottom five and Crystal Palace in the run-in.

The problems when we get to this time of the season, of course, are motivation and distractions elsewhere.

Wolves will likely be solidly mid-table and in “on the beach” territory, while Arsenal’s primary focus could well be on the Europa League, which probably now represents their best chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Liverpool‘s final seven fixtures (lee | NEW | mun | SOU | wba | bur |CRY) look pretty good, too. Given that they might still be scrapping for a top-four finish by that point, perhaps the Reds’ assets who have so underwhelmed in 2020/21 will have one final big say in what has been a turbulent FPL season.

    on a BB

    A: Kilman -> Dier
    B: Dunk -> Reguilon

    I think Reguilon is the better one to bring in but concerned about Kilmans minutes

    1. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      A on account of Kilman

        I'm looking at Spurs defenders too.
        Reguilon seems more nailed with better attacking prospects.
        But both could get a couple of CS in the next 3 ... if they play.

        Thinking of getting Dier for Dallas.

      How does Bamford + Raph + Alonso to DCL + Barnes + Aina for a -8 sound?

      Bamford + Raph have one fixture, which isn't great. Alonso started in CL. So, I feel he might play one game anyway.
      Barnes and DCL have a good double. Aina has an okayish double but plays in 29 which is great as I don't have FH.
      Yes, losing Bamford + Raph without FH is risky. But I feel this is a decent week to BB and having players with 2 fixtures could help pay off the -8.

      1. zotter
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I wouldn’t do that tbh. If anything just Alonso to Pereira or Digne

        1. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          BB with with the SGW leeds players?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          I can also do Bam + Raph to Barnes + Watkins for a -4?

          this

      2. FantasyClub
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Everyone should be a lil more wary of Leicester without Maddison. Barnes might not turn out as good a pick

        • WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Cheers all!
          Starting to rethink about Barnes now. Might go without him. Let's see how Leicester do tomorrow.

      3. Greyling
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Pleas assist. Which moves to make for this gameweek? Team below moves.

        1. Vestergaard, Barnes to Digne, Watkins -4
        2. Barnes, Bamford to Watkins, DCL -4

        Martinez
        Stones, Lowton, Dallas
        Fernandes, Salah, Gundogan, Son,
        Kane, Bamford, Barnes

        Bench: Button, Raphinia, Vestergaard, Coufal

        1. djman102
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          So basically, Vest->Digne or Bam->DCL. Digne is the high risk/high reward play. A defender has been the highest scorer several of the past weeks, but hitting the right one?

          DCL the safe option. Depends on your risk level

      4. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Tark -> Stones worth a -4?

        Pope
        Cancelo, Targett, Tarkowski
        Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundogan
        Kane, Watkins, Bamford

        Forster, Raphina, Mitchell, Coufal
        Bank 0.0m, 0FT

        1. Zogzeg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Yes - I'd expect that move to pay for itself comfortably.

        2. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Tark most likely to get 2+2.
          If Stones plays both games, 2 CSs look nailed. I won't be too sure on 2 starts though. But he has another double as well. So, yeah, I'd take the hit.

        3. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          yep

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Cheers. In prep for 29 (planning to save the FH), what about Pope/Tark -> Martinez/Reguilon (-8) instead?

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              Reguilon only for this week. I dont fancy him apart from 26. So id not go this route and instead get Stones

            2. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              not sure about that, Pope can easily match or outscore Martinez

        4. baggs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          yes

      5. Zogzeg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Any thoughts on Dallas to Dier for a hit?
        Spuds have BUR, ful in 26 then CRY in 27.
        Both have a fixture in 29.
        I can't afford Reguilon.

        1. zotter
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          For a hit no. Even if sheet covers it ...

          A. You’re better off with Dallas rest of season
          B. Dallas could get attacking returns in next four games easily

        2. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Not with it imo.

        3. Casual Player
            7 months, 24 days ago

            No. Spurs have been pretty poor, not even sure Dier is nailed, or would score more points than Dallas 26-29 even with extra game

          • Holmes
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            not sure man, Dier's ceiling is 6-7pts. It will only be profitable if he gets more than 1 CS (and thats assuming Dallas gets nothing more than 2pts)

          • Zogzeg
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Thanks for the considered responses. It makes a welcome change to peak times when everyone's just saying "Do it ! Take the hit !"

          Mind says TC Kane
          Heart says TC DCL

          Help guys.

          1. WE GO FOR IT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            DCL has the better fixtures but Kane is more explosive. It is close.
            If you're chasing, go with your heart! If not, play safe with Kane.

          2. Casual Player
              7 months, 24 days ago

              Listen to your heart when he's calling for you
              Listen to your heart, there's nothing else you can do
              I don't know where you're going and I don't know why
              But listen to your heart
              Before
              You tell him goodbye

                        I'm persuaded by BigManBakar's observation that KDB in the team impacts on Gundo. I wonder if Pep will alternate them in CL weeks.

                          Yep, and KDB benched last night despite being fit now

                    Foden not an option with KDB back?

                        7 months, 24 days ago

                        Foden definitely plays better with KDB on the field but risky

                          Might have reduced min but could be gold at 6.1

                            Yeh, could be. Very possible he outscores Gundo from now until end of season. But all City assets will be heavily rotated with them going for 4 trophies and having the Pl in the bag.

                    1) Ings to Vardy
                    2) Son Ings to Barnes Kane
                    3) Coufal Ings to Aina Kane (Aina because he play in 29, would bench this week anyway and have 2 Spurs with this one)
                    4) Bissouma to Barnes, keep Son and play Ings

                    For those not using TC this week, any idea when you’ll use it? Tempted to use it this week but as I’m not 100% sure on who I’ll actually use it on, I’m considering waiting for a week when there’s somebody I’m 100% certain to put it on... any thoughts?

                      7 months, 24 days ago

                      Maybe next week on man City players or Kane vs Palace

                      Not feeling any high score this week, probably going to use TC for the sake of it.

                        7 months, 24 days ago

                        Like this coming GW, City players are likely to be rested for one of the two fixtures.

                        really? it seems that there will be plenty of high scoring games considering the dgw.

                          Don't think so. Some of the popular TC options like Kane are up against very tight defences. City will rotate and DCL will have his minutes managed. No clear favourites in my view.

                            • 6 Years
                            7 months, 24 days ago

                            Agreed, feel like there’s actually no player with 2 standout fixtures with Salah, Bruno playing Chelsea and Kane against 2 well drilled defenses whilst DCL has the best fixtures but no pens, no bonus for a CS and less pints for goals of course which could all go a long way on the TC.... decisions decisions

                    What do we think of Foden as an option?

                      If you are looking to use TC then I suggest you put on DCL / Bruno...
                      Spurs are facing a much better defensive unit will find it hard to score bucket-loads of goals

                        Which one of these transfer worth doing for -4?

                        A. Pope >> Areola
                        B. Mee >> Maitland-Niles (OOP)

                          B for me

                          C

                            So, if I do any 1 of those transfer, I will be able to half the deficit by playing 2 defensive BUR players who most likely to concede.

                            7 months, 24 days ago

                            So, this will mean I will go into DGW with 2 BUR defensive players who most likely to concede.

                              West Brom likely to concede and you’re down 4.

                              I was set on Bruno but Chelsea are defending okay. Take a look at Kane’s stats vs Bottom teams.

                              For me Bruno (c), DCL (vc). Bruno so damned consistent - prob bag a penalty v Chelsea.

                            Better option for the dgw?

                              I went C, one goal could make it worthwhile

                              I hate Leicester without Maddison

                                So planned transfers are sterling Ings > Kane son. Have exact funds to make these transfers. Pull the trigger now or wait for more news from pressers etc?

                            Did Ings to DCL last night. with my 1 free transfer available. Will prob play myTC this gw too.

                            Current team:

                            Martinez
                            Dias Lowton Taylor
                            Salah Bruno Gundogan Sterling Raphinha
                            Watkins DCL

                            Forster Bamford Dallas Kilman.

                            I have 2.6m itb. Worth taking a hit to bring in Digne for one of the Burnley defenders?

                            I ccould also go Dallas to TAA or B

                              ....Bamford to Richarlison. Any other ideas?

                              BUR to EVE is worth a shot

                            A. Play Bamford
                            B. Grealish => Barnes -4 and bench Bamford
                            C. B and BB with Bamford + Dallas + Struijk
                            D. C and Forster => Pickford -8

                            Is Cancelo worth the extra cash over Stones?

                              Yeh, due assists and a goal.

                              Might not start both in 26.

                                My thoughts exactly..

                                  Almost certainly, esp after 90 mins last night. But were you asking about half a gameweek or the rest of the season?

                                  I have Cancelo in my original team. I am freehitting this week and have Stones.

                            Salah to KDB (c)
                            Madness?

                              7 months, 24 days ago

                              Not madness no, but I can't look past the juicy fixtures just over the horizon for Liverpool.

                            2. Weeb Kakashi

                              7 months, 24 days ago

                              That has a big tendency to backfire.

                              KDB not so clinical, surely can have assist or two, but yet again will be monitored

                              Could go either way. I personally wouldn't unless you're chasing.

                              1. Weeb Kakashi
                                • 5 Years

                                Salah actually in his own standards is a differential as well nowadays.

                                Everyone is just sticking with Salah because it’s “Salah”. I personally think KDB is a good shout now more than any other time. He’s been rested for CL and looked promising against Arsenal. Unlucky actually not to get a goal and assist

                              Reguilon anyone? Rested for UEL as well. Think I like him more than Digne for this GW.

                              1. Weeb Kakashi

                                Definitely. Their best creator apart from Son and Kane. Whats not to like?
                                I am on FH and I have Digne as well.

                                Depends if Mou can swallow his pride or not. Could turn Spuds' slump around if he starts Bale, Alli, Doherty and Regulion. But will he do it?

                                1. Weeb Kakashi
                                  • 5 Years
                                  7 months, 24 days ago

                                  I dont think Mou has a problem with Reguilon.

                              Probably the worst thing happened yesterday as a gundo cancelo dias owner who is planning to bb also.. And my gut says cancelo definetly won't be starting..

                              1. Weeb Kakashi

                                Cancelo and Gundo both could start one game. But even with that id bench boost.

                                  Yeah..

                              Is Dias to Stones good option if i need money to do Bamford to Kane ?
                              For -4 hit
                              ?

                                7 months, 24 days ago

                                Or Pope to Areola is better ?

                                1. Weeb Kakashi

                                  7 months, 24 days ago

                                  This.Areola plays 29. So yes i'd consider this.

                                  1. Jebiga
                                    • 9 Years

                                    Thanks but now I noticed if i don't get Kane i can get areola, richarlison and Watkins for this gw and bench boost. Also for gw 29

                                    1. Jebiga
                                      • 9 Years
                                      7 months, 24 days ago

                                      Forster, Bamford and Brewster are the players that i can dump for Areola Richarlison and Watkins

                                    2. Weeb Kakashi

                                      Fair Enough. If you have Son then it could be worth it. Having said that Kane is the best option this week for me.

                              Is Kane essential ?

                              How do you think Watkins will perform without Grealish in the coming weeks?

                              On a WC and thinking between him and Richarlison...

                              If I choose Rich, then Ings will play in DGW27. If Watkins, then should be Minamino in 27

                                No DCL?

                                  Already have DCL and Kane

                                I’m really stuck between Bruno or Kane TC

                                  Bruno. Tougher fixtures but he has the form and consistency.

                                      Have you seen Kane’s stats vs Bottom teams?

                                        Go Kane then, but I'm just saying what I would do. Been burned before with Kane against stubborn defensive teams, and both Burnley and Fulham are exactly that.

                                            That’s my concern too. I’m just worried about that Chelsea game. Kane was rested also. A lot factors to consider.
