India’s reigning FPL champion answers Double Gameweek 26 questions

Fantasy Premier League managers are always full of questions whenever there’s a Double Gameweek and this week we face the biggest in the game’s history.

Given that my season is down in the dumps, I thought I would take some of these questions and try to help you guys instead.

Let’s get started…

QUESTION ONE

Who are the Bench Boost enablers and cheap defensive options? Also can you look into how defence is the only differential currently in the game as the template grows stronger?

(from @fplmasalah)

Hi Nehal, thank you so much for the question. When it comes to enablers and cheap defensive options for the Bench Boost, there are lot of options that have come to the fore recently. 

Two teams that have two fixtures in Double Gameweek 26, and have displayed some really strong performances of late are Fulham and West Brom. 

The Baggies have a great run of fixtures in the next three Gameweeks where they face Brighton and Hove Albion (home), Everton (home), Newcastle United (home) and Crystal Palace (away). 

Sam Allardyce’s men are 11 points off safety at the moment and what this tells me is that in these next four games, they have to go the win and try to accumulate three points. 

The way West Brom played against Burnley while they were down to ten men really caught my eye. I have been really impressed by their new forward Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) who seems to be getting a big chance every game he’s playing.

In the last four Gameweeks, out of all the players costing £6.5 million or less, Diagne is top of the table for big chances and xG non-penalty. I like his fixtures, his underlying numbers and the recent form for the team. I also prefer Diagne to Fulham’s Josh Maja (£5.5m) primarily because of the fixtures Maja has after Double Gameweek 26 where he faces Liverpool (away) and Manchester City (home) in Gameweeks 27 and 28 respectively. 

In defence, I quite like the look of out-of-position defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) who is finding himself in the box very often for this West Brom team. He could have easily had a goal and assist in the Burnley match.

Gameweek 21 Scout Picks features another Man City triple-up

Fulham’s defensive numbers have been very impressive as well which is why Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) is my favourite budget goalkeeper option for the Bench Boost. 

In the last six matches, Fulham are amongst the top five defences in the league for shots in the box conceded. They have kept four clean sheets in the last seven games and, in general, have tightened up at the back. In addition, Areola has a match in Blank Gameweek 29. 

Fulham’s motivation cannot be questioned at the moment. Scott Parker has galvanised his troops and they are in the midst of a very interesting relegation battle. They are going to treat each match as a cup final which is why I like the budget picks emerging in defence and in attack.

With regards to your comment where defence is the only differential in the game at the moment, I strongly disagree. Son Heung-min (£9.5m) is owned by 51% of the game and has scored only one goal in his last eight Premier League starts. The likes of Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) and Kevin De-Bruyne (£11.8m) are still owned by under 20% of the game. Harry Kane (£11.1m) who has a good looking Double Gameweek in 26 and some decent follow up fixtures is still under 30% owned. 

While I agree that there are a lot of good differential picks emerging in defence and that it has been very difficult to beat the template this season, it is not the only place to make ground.

QUESTION TWO

How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 24

What is the best time for using the Free Hit Chip?

(from @m7mdi_Rm)

My Wire co-host and fellow Pro Pundit Zophar has looked at this in detail. You can read that by CLICKING HERE.

QUESTION THREE

Double Gameweek 26 Scout Picks built on Man City and Everton assets 3

Rank these defenders considering fixtures: Marcos Alonso (£5.7m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m), Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m), Luke Shaw (£5.1m), John Stones(£5.2m)/ Ruben Dias (£6.1m)

(from @FPLfrasier)

There is a lot of interest in defenders at the moment which is why I thought I would take this question on. So here’s what I think. 

First up, I would have one of the Manchester City defenders as my pick. Despite Pep Guardiola mentioning that he’s going to constantly rotate his team, Dias looks fairly nailed-on and is still very cheap for what he offers. 

The way Manchester City are playing at the moment, it will be a surprise if they don’t keep a clean sheet. They have four games in the next two Gameweeks and you would expect them to shut their opponents out in at least three of them. 

I really like Shaw right now. I have been talking about him for a long long time. The Manchester United man is the cheapest defender of all those you have mentioned and his underlying statistics are off the charts. 

Salah and Fernandes blank again as focus shifts to defensive assets 8

In the last six matches, Shaw is second for chances created among all outfield players in the league not. Not just that, his delivery has a lot of quality, he’s on set pieces and in the last two games in particular, he’s been coming a lot closer to goal. I would not be surprised to see Shaw get a goal as well very soon. I’m not particularly worried about his rotation threat either. 

My third preference is potential out of position Pereira. He looked great against Aston Villa and there is a lot of upside with this pick playing on the right-wing for Leicester City. They have good follow-up fixtures after the Double Gameweek as well. 

My fourth preference is Digne and surprisingly Alonso is my least favourite option primarily because of what I saw at the weekend. Thomas Tuchel was visibly not happy with Alonso’s performance in the draw with Southampton and if we are to jump on Alonso, I think the right thing to do would be to judge his performance in two very difficult games in Double Gameweek 26 and if he comes through that unscathed. Chelsea have good fixtures after that so it’s a matter of one or two Gameweeks where Alonso could move from my fifth choice to first or second based on how he does in the over the next few days

QUESTION FOUR

What should I do with Danny Ings (£8.5m)?

(from @tanyasharma)

It does not look very encouraging for Ings at the moment does it? Personally I think there is enough upside in removing him for Double Gameweek 26 considering one of his two fixtures in Double Gameweek 27 is against Manchester City.

The moves to make would be either an upgrade to a trigger-happy Harry Kane (who is a real captaincy option for me) or a downgrade to a fit Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) who has a very good set of fixtures in Double Gameweek 26. 

That’s it from me for this round of The Burning Question. I hope you enjoyed this article.

          Not really, Liverpool will continue to struggle imo.

  2. Amey

    Do you think Areola outscores McCarthy by 4 this GW ?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Yep

      Not saying which match I think is the clean!

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I don't care about that ! 😉
        Just want points....
        Ha ha

        Planning BB and McCarthy is meh ❗
        Will be an additional hit but, it's DGW time ....

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          How many hits are you on? BB Leeds heavy?

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 3 days ago

            Not taken any yet.
            Martinez McCarthy
            Cancelo Stones Dallas Shaw Tarkowski*
            Salah Bruno Rashford Gundogan Grealish*
            Watkins Bamford DCL

            Grealish Tarkowski >> Konsa Son (-8) is the plan with BB (Areola can come in for extra hit)

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 3 days ago

              Holding Rash could be a masterstroke - 27 tricky possibly I suppose with triple United

              Also looking at Konsa and wondering about extra hit for -8 BB going for a keeper.

              Tending more to TC right now on DCL

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                7 months, 3 days ago

                Rashford will go next GW or next to that one for Raphinha for sure. This DGW hence holding him.
                You like the plan ?
                No kane or Leicester annoying me but difficult to get Kane for me

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  7 months, 3 days ago

                  Like the plan

                  Maddison out I think reduces Leicester no end. Has rather scuppered my Vardy punt. Taking the gains I've made on it over Kane in last 2 and running probably.

                  Really distrust both him and Everton but feel more or less forced into TC DCL

                  1. Amey
                    • 2 Years
                    7 months, 3 days ago

                    Thanks bro

  3. TheDragon

    This week should be huge! (So no doubt lots of disappointment)

    Is Salah being hugely overlooked as a Captain option?

    1. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      yes, he is most experts pick for captain this week

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Who is an expert?

        1. OneDennisBergkamp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          well this website for one has named him as the top choice..

          most websites "points predictions" have him top this week also..

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Decent option, go with him if you fancy it

    3. THL33
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Maybe, but Sheff U won't be thrashed I don't think, and Chelsea will get at least a draw there I think

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      When in doubt .... 😉

    5. FarkeMee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I would have said rightly so, until I saw how many injuries Sheff Utd have in defence. Liverpool are low on confidence, but if they were to get an early goal, it could turn into a rout and the confidence boost they need.

  4. THL33
    7 months, 3 days ago

    1. Adams to any ST (own Bamford and Kane) thinking Vardy as differential or DCL as a safer pick

    2. Would you take Dallas out for a hit (I have to start him)

    thanks.

  5. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Slavia Prague for Rangers. Anyone watch them against Leicester? Are they decent?

    1. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Not particularly. Which says how bad Leicester were on the night.

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Leicester weren't great. Of all the teams in the draw, I'm pretty happy with Slavia - don't get me wrong, they could still bounce us out, but they give us a really good chance of progressing.

  6. Phlajo
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Lowton to Konsa worth a -4 from now to gw29?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      yip ... how many more games ?

  7. casual69
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Hi guys,
    Current team:

    Ederson
    Rüdiger, digne, Stones
    Barnes , Salah, Gündogan, Fernandes
    Watkins, Calvert-Lewin, Kane
    Martínez, Lowton, Raphinha, el Mohamady

    Looking at BB, any thoughts on improving the team? Have 0.3 in the bank.

    going forward will fh in 33.

    1. Phlajo
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Im considering Lowton to Konsa myself for a -4. I think it might be worth it as he'll play in 29, and probably a higher chance of CS this GW

      1. casual69
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Unfortunately I already have my 3 villa in Martz, watkns and El Mohdy

        1. Phlajo
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Ah didnt notice

  8. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    I think Rangers will beat Slavia prague.

    1. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Rangers have beat far better teams than Slavia Prague over the last three European campaigns. I'm confident.

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      We realistically couldn't have asked for a kinder draw, so we have to be confident (but for the love of God, switch on at the back a bit)!

  9. FISSH
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    I think I will save the bench boost. I will only be missing out on McCarthy, Mitchell, Dallas and Antonio

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Pope, Mee, Ings to steer, Mitchell, Kane for -8?
    Would TC Kane and able to keep Sterling
    Or get rid of Sterling, Ings for Kane, Gundogan for -4?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Omg no

  11. MMN
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    1 FT 2.3m. Planning to bench boost.

    A) Chilwell, Mee & Raph > Konsa, Veltman & Son -8 (get a few GW29 players in)
    B) Chilwell > Targett/Konsa

    FH intact but leaning towards using in GW33. Any thoughts? Open to other suggestions.

    Martinez
    Chilwell*, Stones, Cancelo
    Gundo, Salah, Bruno, Barnes
    DCL, Watkins, Bamford*
    Areola, Mee, Dallas*, Raphina*

  12. flynner25
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Bottomed

    Option A - No points hit
    Option B - Dallas to Digne (-4 )
    Option C - Dallas + Raphinia to Digne + Barnes (-8)
    Option D - Dallas + JWP TO Digne + Barnes (-8)

    Thoughts/opinion appreciated?

    1. MMN
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      D if all will start. It depends on implications to your starting 11.

      1. flynner25
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        All will be benched as playing bench boost

  13. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Captain Kane or Bruno?

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Kane

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes

  15. ElChapo
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Bottomed.

    Coufal > Shaw -4

    Shaw starts and bench Mitchell.

    Or Dier/Reguillon?

    any better moves?

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Coufal to Keane/Targett............ better fixtures and with GW28 in mind also

      1. ElChapo
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        hmmm, got Emi so not keen on targett, but I hadn't considered keane.

  16. Paul Psychic Octopus
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Is there any clarity (or estimates) yet on how many other DGWs there will be and when, other than DGW26 and City's DGW the week after? Presumably depends on FA Cup?

    1. flynner25
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      2

  17. Totti
    • 5 Years

  18. Dele
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Transferring one out so I can get KDB next week... who should I keep?

    A) Dias
    B) Cancelo

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Leave them this week and next week make the 2 transfers

      1. Dele
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        The transfer is looking like Dias > Digne? Take advantage of his double.

        1. Totti
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Not for me
          Don’t fancy digne

    2. im1974

  19. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Start Bamford or Raphinha?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Raphinha - could have hauled massively last GW

      1. MIGHTY JOE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I know. Just hard to overlook what happend last time Bamford was up against Villa

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Im starting Raph

  20. jack the ripper
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone on WC considering a punt with Aguero ?

    1. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Not yet. Need to get some minutes first

      1. jack the ripper
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        with 4 games in the next 2 gameweeks I suspect he plays in 2.

    I'm in the top 7k for the first time thanks to you guys. Just want to know if it's too risky taking hits now? I'm really tempted to do Antonio Grealish Mee to Kane Lookman Digne for a - 8 but worried about dropping rank. What are your thoughts?

      Do it - those three being sold aren't gonna score much and people with Kane will fly past you if he hauls.

      Do it.

      1. Zlatan F.C
        7 months, 3 days ago

        I could just do Kane and Lookman for - 4. Would you still do Mee to Digne for - 8?

          Same rank. Do it. Take the hits!! The clamour on Digne is high. If you think DCL gets on the end of cross/free kick then why not....if you think they’ll be Everton disappointment we expect then don’t

      Thats a solid -8 for a double...

      Huge upside to those moves - Lookman an ok sort of makeweight

      Risk it for the cookie

      It’s simply will the player you bring in score more than 4 more than the player you take out.

      Just don’t check your rank immediately after deadline if that’s what is stopping you

    Who would you start? For the draft side.

    A) Raph (AVL)
    B) Maja (cry, TOT)
    C) Cavani* (che, cry)

  23. FISSH
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone captaining Gundo?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Nope, with KdB back would be worried about mins I think. So many great 'nailed' options

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        Why?

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 3 days ago

          Bernando is starting a serious amount of the games at the moment, KDB back in the mix. Rodri will start. Spaces running out in the midfield.

          It doesn't seem worth the risk vs a Bruno/Kane this week

      only the mad & criminally insane ... or Kane non owners 😉

      1. FISSH
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        the Kane owners are the insane ones. haha

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Yes me.

  24. TheDragon
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Have this for a -4. Good to go?

    MARTINEZ, JOHNSTONE
    DIAS, CANCELO, AWB, LOWTON, MITCHELL
    SALAH, FERNANDES, GUNDOGAN, BARNES, Raphinha
    DCL, KANE, Bamford

    Bench boosting this seem sensible?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Yeah BB for sure

    2. Arlo
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I would BB that yes, saves a benching headache if nothing else!

    3. Jink
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      What do you think of Bamford to Watkins for another -4?

  25. Old Gregg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    On BB with FH still intact. H

    Getting drawn in by the DGW.

    I have Bamford. If that makes any difference.

    a) Raphina > Matheus Pereira (-4)
    b) Raphina > Foden (-4)
    c) neither

      C

  26. Erez Avni
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    I’m Bench Boosting and trying to figure out if I need to take a hit here:

    Martinez
    Shaw Stones Lowton
    Salah Barnes Bruno Gundogan
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Areola Raphinha Dallas Burn

    Maybe Dallas to Pereira or Bamford to Watkins?

    Cheers!

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      Digne perhaps?

      1. Erez Avni
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        missing 0.1 for that move...

  27. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Best move? Going Ings >> Kane with FT.

    A. Coufal >> Digne (-4)
    B. Soucek >> Barnes (-4)
    C. Both for -8?
    D. Use WC for Martinez, Salah, Barnes, Digne and few other tidy ups

    Pope
    Dias, Cancelo, Tarko
    Son, Bruno, Gündo, Raphina
    Kane, DCL, Bamford
    (McCarthy, Dallas, Coufal, Soucek)

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 3 days ago

      I’d just do A personally

      Should easily score 4 more than Tarkowski plus still leaves you in perfectly good spot for 29

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 3 days ago

        A means losing a 29 player though.

  28. Dragon1983
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Please help guys - I am in massive two mind between options A and B below

    Martinez,
    Cancelo, Stones, Lowton, Mee, Caufel
    Gundo, Bruno, Salah, Son, Raph
    Ings, Bamford, Antonio

    I will use my TC in 26, FH in 29, BB in 30 and WC in 31 - so it is all about maximising 26 - 28

    A) Ings > DCL and Mee > Digne (-4) (TC Salah, Son or Bruno) (9 double gamers plus Bam & Ralph)
    B) Ings > DCL, Mee > Digne, Bruno > Barnes and Antonio > Kane (-12) (TC Salah, Kane or Son) (10 double gamers plus Bam or Ralph)

    I know B is a hit (and a risk without Bruno) - but gets me Kane and Barnes for the easy fixture run to week 29 ?

  29. Arlo
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 3 days ago

    Considering one of these at the moment - 1FT 2.0 ITB

    a) -8
    Sterling > Son
    Ings > Kane
    Bamford > DCL

    b) -4
    Ings > Kane
    Coufal > 4.1 (Mitchell or Struijk)

    DCL fitness is a slight concern, but he should be ok I think.

    Also does the return of KDB affect Sterlings position\points at all ?
