My Wildcard squad for Double Gameweek 26 and when I’m Free Hitting

It has never been more important for Fantasy Premier League managers to get their chip strategy right as we face more Blank and Double Gameweeks between now and the end of the 2020/21 season.

14 teams play twice in Double Gameweek 26 so the points-ceilings for a Wildcard, Free Hit, Triple Captain and Bench Boost are all higher than usual.

And, while preparing the biggest Double Gameweek of the season is very exciting, I still have half an eye on the tricky Blank Gameweeks in the months to come.

I have already used my Triple Captain chip in Double Gameweek 19 and my Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 24, so I am deploying my Wildcard in Double Gameweek 26 to focus on moving my cash back into the starting XI after spreading it out on bench players.

This was my squad at the end of Gameweek 25:

I want to move out my contingent of West Ham and Burnley players and focus more money on the starting XI for the remainder of the season.

This is how my Wildcard squad is currently shaping up;:

I have made a total of eight changes, which is on par for what I would expect with the second Wildcard. I could have possibly done without it but I saw it as an opportunity to restructure my squad for the long-term, and also for Blank Gameweek 29.

Like Blank Gameweek 18, I am struggling to see fixtures I want to attack here.

Brighton v Newcastle, on paper, looks like an appealing fixture for the Seagulls but they are such an unpredictable team. No team has had more shots than Brighton (106) over the last six Gameweeks but no team has scored fewer goals (four). I would find it difficult to back the likes of Neal Maupay (£6.1m) and any more than one defender would feel a bridge too far given Newcastle’s need for points.

Aston Villa’s form is on a downward trajectory while Tottenham Hotspur are not exactly setting the league alight with their attacking displays. It feels like a 1-1 kind of fixture and I can’t pick a clear winner here. I’m likely going to have Son Heung-min (£9.5m), Harry Kane (£11.1m) and Emiliano Martinez (£5.3m).

With West Ham v Arsenal, again, I am struggling to pick a clear winner here. West Ham are arguably the favourites given their form this season but again I don’t see a blowout win for either team.

Fulham v Leeds is the fixture I really like. I’d want Raphinha (£5.4m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.9m) for this one and possibly one of Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) or Josh Maja (£5.5m).

If I were to use my Free Hit in Gameweek 29, it would probably look something like this:

It hardly fills me with confidence, and we could see another 30-40 point week. I can’t even pick a captain I really like here. There are also quite a few attackers up against the defenders so again the point ceiling is low.

I think it could be a case of quality over quantity. With Son, Kane, Martinez and Ben White (£4.4m) already in the squad, I can focus on bringing in four players for GW29 (three FT+a hit) which would likely be Raphinha, Patrick Bamford, Michail Antonio (£6.5m) and maybe Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m), depending on Arsenal’s form. I’d rather have Jack Grealish (£7.6m) if he’s fit though.

What appeals to me here is that Leeds have Sheffield United in Gameweek 30, so I am happy to retain their attackers for the following week. Harvey Barnes (£6.7m) is an easy transition to Raphinha, given Barnes has a blank in 29 and then Manchester City in 30. Antonio has Wolves, which is not too bad. Aubameyang has Liverpool, which isn’t as stern a test as it used to be. Villa have Fulham in Gameweek 30 too.

When will I use my Free Hit?

Gameweek 33 is the week of the League Cup Final which means Spurs, Man City and their originally scheduled league opponents Southampton and Fulham have a missing fixture. The fixtures in 33 are far more appealing in terms of points potential.

The Villa v West Brom, Liverpool v Newcastle and Leicester v Crystal Palace fixtures appeal as does Leeds v Manchester United. I would feel much more comfortable loading up on assets from these teams for a Free Hit and I see more potential for a bigger score here. The ticker colour coding gives it away – there are way more blue fixtures in this week.

It is worth mentioning Spurs play Sheffield United in Gameweek 34, so this would let you retain their assets for that fixture. Spurs in general have a good fixture run between 27-30 (Palace, Arsenal, Villa, Newcastle) so I don’t mind holding their assets, despite their stuttering form. Man City have Palace away too in 34.

Also, there is a small chance that the pending Spurs v Southampton fixture goes to Gameweek 32, if Man City beat Everton in the FA Cup. If that is the case, Spurs having a double in 32 and a blank in 33 would make things tricky to navigate without the Free Hit in 33.

Conclusion

A lot could change between now and Gameweek 29, but I am not seeing the upside in a Gameweek 29 Free Hit at the moment. Getting the right six-to-seven players should be enough to keep up with those who do use their Free Hit, as we saw in Gameweek 18.

We have covered Free Hit strategy as well as Double Gameweek 26 extensively in this week’s edition of The FPL Wire (https://youtu.be/xP3DuM_MFPM) where Lateriser and I are joined by fellow Pro Pundit Tom Freeman. I highly recommend a listen to get you prepped for the biggest double gameweek ever.

Good luck and hope you enjoyed reading.

    RP: Last piece of the puzzle:

    Play Shaw over A or B, I feel Shaw will play both games where as Stones and Dias more likely to only play the one. Just feel Dias more nailed in the team now Laporte is back.

    A) Stones
    B) Dias
    C) Other

    Martinez
    Dias*, Stones*, Digne
    Salah, Gundo, Fernandes, Barnes
    DCL(TC), Kane, Watkins

    Sanchez, Shaw*, Grealish, Struijk

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      That's tough. I would play him over Stones

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Shaw over Stones. Stone may only play 1 game. Shaw could haul in Utd's 2nd fixture against Palace

  2. b91jh

    I am quite set on Bamford to Kane (exact cash), but any non-Kane transfers could be gold here? 1ft, 3.5itb, hits welcomed.

    Martinez
    Cancelo Dias White
    Salah Bruno Gundogan Barnes Raph
    DCL Bamford

    Pope Dallas Antonio Cresswell

    BB, FH already used.

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I would start Dallas ahead of White. Just do Bamford/Antonio to Kane and you are GTG

  3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Best option for 26?

    A. Pope and Soucek to Forster and Barnes (-4)
    B. Holding to Targett/Aina
    C. Soucek to Lookman
    D. Roll FT

    TC26 WC31 FH33

    2FT 3.7itb
    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Digne
    Salah Bruno Gundo Raphinha*
    Kane DCL Bamford*
    (Pope Soucek Cresswell Holding)

    1. Zlatan F.C
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Soucek to Lookman

        1. Zlatan F.C
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Why would A be - 4 if you have 2FT?

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Oops well done for spotting that. It should be 1FT 1.1itb. You think Lookman +4 could outscore Barnes for 26-28?

      • RedJive79
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        How's this WC looking? Too much Leicester?

        Martinez
        Pereira / Cancelo / Stones
        Bruno / Barnes / Salah / Gundo / Son
        Kane / DCL

        3.9 / Dallas / Veltman / Brewster

        1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I wouldn't say two LEI is too much. GTG

          • 11 Years

          agreed GTG

        3. RedJive79
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Or Shaw instead of Pereira?

      • My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Morning all. 3.0m itb. Will bench boost Sanchez, White, Dallas, JWP just to get it out of the way.

        JWP to Barnes or Son for a hit?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Barnes, yes

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah

          Prob yes and Barnes

          Yeah it's probably worth it. Not sure which of Barnes or Son though. If you would be taking another hit to get a Saints player next GW, then it's a -8, though, so then I would say no, regardless of how well Barnes or Son do.

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Won't get him back for 27, so I'll do it. Fare well sir

      • Zlatan F.C
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Honestly not sure what to do here? 1FT 3.6m itb

          Martinez
          Cancelo Dias Mee Dallas
          Salah Bruno Gundo Raph
          DCL Bamford

          Pope Antonio Grealish Coufal

          A) Antonio Grealish to Kane(TC) and Lookman - 4
          B) Antonio Grealish and Pope to Kane(TC) Barnes and Aerola - 8
          C) Antonio Grealish and Coufal to Kane Lookman and Castagne - 8 and play BB...

          1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            With a heavy bench I would be inclined to BB this GW and get it out the way. You can TC in another GW like City in 27 or potentially Spurs in 32

        • Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Hey fam! Is this worth -12 for Bench Boost?

          Antonio Coufal Tarkowski Bamford to Watkins Dias Digne Maja.

          Gives me the following team

          Martinez Areola
          Cancelo Dias Maguire Digne Targett
          Salah Bruno Son Gundogan Raphinha
          DCL Watkins Maja

          1. Gives me 3rd City player in Dias with two back to back DGWs.

          2. Gives me Digne for amazing DGW this week and possibly GW28 as well.

          3. Maja gives me a DGW26 as well as BGW29 player.

          4. Watkins becomes my 3rd Villa player with couple of DGWs coming up and a player for BGW29.

          5. Will probably get 3 players who play in BGW29 with three FTs from GW27 to GW29. ( Mostly Bamford, Dallas & Dunk for DCL, Maguire & Cancelo/Dias)

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            Bamford and Tarkowski to Dias and Maja can be avoided I guess

            1. Pep Roulette
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              Coufal to Digne not possible then :/

        • fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Getting a range of response, so first to 5 wins:

          Martinez
          Cancelo Stones Robertson
          Salah Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
          Bamford DCL Kane

          Pope Soucek Coufal Ferguson

          1FT, 0.8itb

          1. Ferguson >> Konsa [10DGWs] (play Bamford or Raphinha)
          2. Robertson >> Digne [9DGWs] (play Bamford and Raphinha)

          Thanks

            B looks appealing because of Liverpools past form, but Sheffield chelsea both could be clean sheets due to their opponents lack than their strength.

            I would do 1 but with holgate/rudiger.

            1. fcsaltyballs
              • 5 Years

              Is Holgate nailed?

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            B) Digne will get you more points

          Yoyo lads!

          Worth taking a -16 just for a good bench boost or use wildcard for solid team of

          martinez
          cancelo, dias, shaw
          son gundo barnes salah bruno
          kane watkins

            I had a similar dilemma and went for the wildcard. Realistically you’ll do well to get more than 16 points from that BB if they’re likely fairly cheap options that have a GW29 fixture, so you may as well wildcard.

              Was thinking the same, team needs some fixing anyway, so WC it is.

          When do EL fixtures get announced? Some time today? Only thing to persuade me onto DCL would be the likelihood of double DGWs - even then King lurks who Ancelotti says will start some

            I think we could see King, DCL and Richi all start with King on the right side of a front 3. Pretty sure he played similar role at times for Bournemouth when Wilson was up top.

          Hey all,

          Mark and I recorded FPL BlackBox Episode 23 – Go Large – last night and there's lots of ways you can watch / listen if you missed it.

          The idea of FPL BlackBox is to reflect back on the mistakes we make during the season to try and become better managers.

              I love BlackBox. It might be about on a par with the other FPL podcasts in terms of analysis but it's a cut above when it comes to entertainment. The fixtures section of you vs Mark is always great fun.

            Would you make any changes to the lineup here?

            Martinez
            TAA Canc Stones Mee Targ
            Fernandes(v) Son Gundogan
            Kane(TC) Calvert-Lewin

            McCarthy* | Ings*, Minamino*, Smith Rowe*

            0FT. 1.0 ITB
            * = SGW

              I would take a hit Mee to Digne

              1. Deulofail
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 15 days ago

                Can't afford that, I'm afraid

                  ah are you 0.1 off?

                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Yup. I can sell TAA for him if I need him for GW28.

              Deulo! Probably nothing worth a hit as you have 0FT. Im considering a hit to get Barnes for some Leicester though.

              You not gonna BB right? Then stick

                • 5 Years

                No BB. I blew it in GW1 😀

              GTG, not too template. Nice to see TAA in a team.

              Mee is SGW as well. Mee to Targett would work but I'm not sure it's worth the hit.

                1 month, 15 days ago

                Didn't notice Targ in your team. Oops.

                Dier is always an option.

                  They do. I missed that. In that case why aren't you starting Ings?

                  1. Deulofail
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Finding it to be a close call, personally, but you're the first person here to suggest that Ings might be better. Hoping for a minimum of 4 points from Mee, while Ings averages 4.6 per game. I think Mee is probably marginally the sensible pick.

                tl;dr it's Kane with good fixtures
                (vs someone with one good fixture)

              Not if Grealish is out for the double

            Is Mee to Shaw worth a hit?

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 15 days ago

              I would do that. I can't see Burnley keeping a CS and Shaw could get a CS in the Chelsea (0-0) and haul in the Palace game

              Vardy

              Depends who you take out for each?

              • 2 Years

              Depends who you are losing. I would prefer the cheaper option in Barnes.

            Why do I have a hunch that Bruno will score more points against Palace than Kane will in both his games

                No but they are tighter under Tuchel

                Bruno on 25% chance to return in fpl according to bookies... the likes of Bale, Giroud and Maja are all much higher...

                1. Pukki Blinders
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 15 days ago

                  Bruno v Chelsea that is

                  vs Chelsea or over both games?

              • 2 Years

              Problem is heavily relying on one fixture whereas Kane could tick over with a goal in each game

                  Robbo to Ricardo Pereira for -8?

                  Current defence is Stones, Dias, Diane, Dallas, Robbo

                  Planning to TC Kane

                  1. Holmes

                    Nope

                    Robbo could do we this gw.

                    1 month, 15 days ago

                    Would be a -4 not a -8 no? Each hit is 4 pts

                    1. sp1122
                        1 month, 15 days ago

                        Already taken a -4 which was Ings, Bednerak & Grealish to Kane, Digne and ASM

                      B, Sterling won't play twice imo

                          Strong bench you could possibly downgrade... have you Used BB yet?

                      Would need -8 thanks to your overloaded def. Robbo? You would otherwise need to sell Salah or Bruno for -4. You're goosed.

                        • 10 Years

                        Actually just spotted Ings on your bench. Get rid of him and Robbo

                          Yeah think I’ll do this

                      I would downgrade Robbo and use the funds to do Ings to Kane for a -4

                      Maddison to 4.4, Ings to Kane -4

                      Ings and Robbo > Kane and XX

                      Depends if you have cover for 29.

                    Aguero will start one of these games and sub in the other.

                      Maddison if fit or Gundy?

                        Thinking Gundagean as already have Barnes and as you outlined Maddison injury doubt.

                      Gundo?

                        Seems to be the best option right?

                          Yep no one else at that price point

                    Ings >> Kane with my FT. Either (or both) of these worth a hit?

                    A. Coufal >> Digne (-4)
                    B. Soucek >> Barnes (-4)
                    C. Both for -8?
                    D. Play WC.

                    Dias, Cancelo, Tarko

                    Kane, DCL, Bamford

                      B. My plan is antonio and sou to kane and barnes for -4

                      B - that is the two transfer I'll be doing for a -4

                    Need to downgrade Pope in order to do Soucek > Barnes. Any 4.4 or less GK's I should get? Is Ryan at Arsenal the best hope?

                      Just go fodder like Fabri at 3.9 or Forster at 4.0

                    Any other gameweeks where there is a standout choice where TC chip could be used instead? Having a hard time trying to pick this GW.

                      DGW27
                      Man City (MUN+SOU)

                      DGW32 (?)
                      Kane/Son (eve+SOU) - only likely to happen if MCI beat EVE

                      DGW37(??)
                      Kane/Son (AVL+SOU) - only likely to happen if EVE beat MCI

                        Thanks. Looks like this is the still the best week to use it.

                    Good article - I like the 'I don't have a WC but if I did this is how I'd use it' part.
                    Hadn't really considered Shaw for the DGW. Had the likes of Aina, Targett or Digne in mind.

                    Watkins or Barnes? I can free hit in gw29 if I want to.

                      Barnes, Watkins is frustrating to own and seems weak when playing. And no Grealish to serve him assists
