Why I’m Wildcarding before a Double Gameweek 27 Bench Boost

Tom Freeman has finished inside Fantasy Premier League’s top 1k a staggering five times in his career. He is back with his latest column outling his plans for Double Gameweek 26 and beyond.


So, where were we? The last time I checked in, Gameweek 23 had drawn to a close and I sat just outside the top 300k overall.

I talked up Burnley’s prospects ahead of their double, specifically focusing on Matthew Lowton (£4.5m) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.4m), and also touched upon Lucas Digne (£6.1m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m).

Since then, it’s all been a bit meh for my own team with no real rank movement, but for context, here’s how Gameweek 25 shaped up:

So, in this my latest column, I’m going to discuss my Gameweek 26 Wildcard and also run through my chip strategy. I’m not quite ready to share my final team as I’ll be tinkering right up till deadline, but after reading this you should know which players I’m leaning towards.

CHIP STRATEGY

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice to FPL Gameweek 23

Firstly, it’s probably best to talk chips.

The original plan had always been to follow up my Gameweek 16 Wildcard with a Free Hit in 18 and Bench Boost in 19. However, the fixture rearrangements that were announced on New Year’s Eve involving Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City and Aston Villa, plus Leeds United and Southampton later losing their double, meant that I shelved that strategy.

So now, after much deliberation, I’ve decided to Bench Boost in Gameweek 27. Why 27? Well, I don’t want to hold too much value on my bench for too long after Wildcarding, and I also want to target two specific fixtures which I’ll come to later.

This new strategy of course effects the way I build this Wildcard, and as a result, there has to be some sacrifices as I attempt to spread funds around the squad. I’m pretty sure it won’t be for everyone, but I hope by reading this, you can at least see why I’ve included some players and dismissed others.

I should also point out that I still have my Free Hit and Triple Captain chips available, and plan to use the former in either Gameweek 29 or 33.

THE GOALKEEPERS

Villa bank 11th clean sheet as Martinez bags another haul

Emiliano Martínez (£5.3m) is a bit of a no-brainer in goal, given Aston Villa’s fixtures.

Though the team’s overall level has dropped in recent weeks he’s still making lots of saves. In fact, over the last four Gameweeks, he’s comfortably ahead of any other keeper in the division:

The second spot is harder to decide on, but for now I’ve landed on Sam Johnstone (£4.5m). 

West Bromwich Albion have looked much better in recent matches, now that their new arrivals have been properly integrated into the starting XI. I am realistic though, and do expect more save points than clean sheets.

Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) and Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) are other names I considered, and may still turn to, but for now, Martínez and Johnstone are in my draft.

THE DEFENDERS

A Manchester City double-up makes a lot of sense here, given that their 10-point lead at the top of the table has been built on a solid defensive platform. That’s seen them concede just nine goals in their last 23 Premier League games, which is pretty remarkable. 

However, given my OR and the fact I’m playing catch-up, I’m tempted to double-up in midfield which would give me the opportunity to pair Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) with Ilkay Gündogan (£6.1m).

Going in with one City defender, which would be either João Cancelo (£6.1m) or John Stones (£5.2m), does come with risk though. 

For example, the advantage I gained from Sterling’s goal against Arsenal was pretty much wiped out once they registered a clean sheet. I’ve just got to hope we see a bit more rotation in the coming weeks. It’s probably wishful thinking, but it does feel like I’ve got to at least try something different.

Fit-again Pereira already showing signs of last season's form

Elsewhere, I’ve also found a spot for differential Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) who took up an advanced role as a right-winger against Aston Villa. 

There was talk that Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers had put Timothy Castagne (£5.7m) and Pereira on the same side to double-up on Jack Grealish (£7.6m), who eventually missed out. However, I don’t buy that, and these comments from Rodgers after the game do suggest it’s a tactic we might see more of:

“It’s been something I’ve been waiting to do for quite a long time, but this is the first period where both of those boys were fit to play. They’re different types. Because of how we play, they find themselves in that attacking third of the pitch quite a lot. Tim will run more without the ball and penetrate, and Ricky’s one who can be inside and manipulate the ball. I just thought that combination of those two, because Ricky is comfortable coming inside, he can turn, he can pass, he’s very aggressive when he attacks. I thought the two of them were very good and combined well together.” – Brendan Rodgers

Pereira finished the match with 33 final-third touches, more than any other player on the pitch. He also took three shots, twice testing Martínez, and took up some nice position’s infield which you can see on his touch heatmap from the game below:

I also like Digne, who is currently owned by just 8.8% of FPL managers.

Everton’s defence isn’t exactly watertight right now, but Tom Davies’ (£5.2m) recent performances and the return of Allan (£5.2m) offers encouragement that they can add to their total of five Premier League clean sheets.

It’s also worth noting that their opponents on Monday night, Southampton, have conceded the highest number of chances from their right-flank over the last six Gameweeks, and will be without Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m) and Oriol Romeu (£4.5m).

Luke Shaw (£5.1m) and Antonio Rüdiger (£4.6m) are also in my thoughts, I’m just not convinced now is the time to invest given their immediate schedules. 

THE MIDFIELDERS

The biggest decision here is that I can only pick one of Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m).

Potential reasons for losing arguably the best asset in the game include fixtures (che + cry, mci, WHU, blank) and the fact I probably won’t captain him until at least Gameweek 32. Despite this, Fernandes usually finds a way to return so I need to think this through carefully.

The alternative is Son. I’ve heard some say he isn’t in form, which is probably fair, but tougher fixtures can do that to a player and we are talking about one of the league’s most clinical forwards. There is potential to do well beyond the double too, with games against Crystal Palace and Arsenal to follow.

City duo De Bruyne and Gündogan will be included, and I’m also considering Harvey Barnes (£6.9m).

The 23-year-old has already netted 13 goals in all competitions this term, and I see him getting plenty of joy down Arsenal’s weaker right-flank this weekend. James Maddison (£7.3m) being out isn’t ideal, but I’m hoping it won’t disrupt their flow too much.

Above: Harvey Barnes’ xG shot map in 2020/21

However, if I decide on Fernandes over Son, I might need to drop down to a cheaper option in this slot, someone like Ademola Lookman (£5.0m), Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) or Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m).

This of course means I can’t fit Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) in, which is kind of scary, but if there is ever a time to leave him out it’s probably now. 

Since beating Palace 7-0 back in December, Liverpool have played 11 Premier League matches and won just two. The injury to Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) is a further setback, and my feeling at this moment is that I’ll make a move for Diogo Jota (£6.6m) once fit. The Portugal international recently returned to full first-team training, and it’s hard to argue against the value he offers when available, having scored nine goals in his first 17 appearances.

THE FORWARDS

Harry Kane (£11.1m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) are obvious inclusions given their respective schedules, and it’s likely I’ll hand the former the armband too.

The final forward spot is still up for grabs, which unfortunately means I have to lose Patrick Bamford (£6.9m) who has been in my team since Gameweek 1, and is one of the few highlights of my season so far.

I’m looking at Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) as a possible replacement, who has made a big impact since he joined West Brom and has been getting shots off in some good areas.

Above: Mbaye Diagne’s shot map (shots on target in green) since making his debut in Gameweek 21.

In fact, no forward has registered more big chances since he made his debut, despite sometimes looking isolated. 

Other options include Michail Antonio (£6.5m) and Ollie Watkins (£6.5m), and it’s likely I’ll make a late call on that one.

THE BENCH BOOSTERS

As I mentioned earlier, I’m planning a Gameweek 27 Bench Boost with an idea to focus on two fixtures.

West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United

Albion have put in a couple of much improved displays against Man Utd and Burnley in recent weeks, and appear to have found a system which seems to be working. Signing a proper holding midfielder in Okay Yokuslu (£4.5m) is huge for them, and that improved defensive setup means I’m willing to take a risk on differential Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.5m). 

Following Semi Ajayi’s (£4.8m) red card at Burnley, the on-loan Arsenal man shifted out to a wider attacking role, which manager Sam Allardyce has hinted we might see more of in the coming weeks. I don’t have any stats to back it up, it’s more of an eye test thing, but for just one match I’m willing to give it a go.

West Ham United v Leeds United

The second matchup I want to target involves West Ham United, who are now in the top four and have a few players tailor-made for a Bench Boost.

Opponents Leeds United have now conceded eight goals from corners this season, a league-high alongside Sheffield United. Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) almost added another earlier this week, and given that the Hammers approach is largely based around crossing, I’m considering Craig Dawson (£4.5m). He’s already scored two goals in 10 games this season and always carries a threat from set-pieces.

I also think Marcelo Bielsa’s side can struggle against players who run directly at them, which is why I like Jesse Lingard (£5.9m) who has looked lively since moving to East London.

Above: midfielders sorted by shots since Jesse Lingard made his West Ham United debut in Gameweek 21.

So, I know this Wildcard won’t be for everyone but I hope having read this, you can at least understand why I’ve chosen the squad I have.

Also, before I sign off, earlier this week I was fortunate enough to join fellow Pro Pundits Lateriser and Zophar again on The FPL Wire.

We talked strategy, Wildcards and captains, plus loads more.

The chat complements this column, and goes a bit deeper into some of the players and teams covered, so if you’re into that kind of thing please check it out on the link below…

I’ll update you on how it’s going next time I check in, but for now, thanks for reading and best of luck in Double Gameweek 26.

    I have this mini league where we have to pick only from this match for this week :
    ManCity vs Westham (My prediction 2-1)
    West Brom vs Brighton (My prediction 1-0)
    Leeds vs Aston Villa (My prediction 2-0)

      Fellow Foden owners - how you feeling about the next four games?

          You have him?

            Yup

              Why buoyant, other than hope?

              I need reassurance 😆

                I feel he’s going to return in at least 3 of the 4
                And likely to play more minutes than most city mids

                1. Jafooli

                  • 9 Years

                  Here's hoping, and hopefully a bonus magnet to boot..

        1 month, 18 days ago

        Only thing that makes me somewhat happy having him is that he was taken off a bit early mid week.

        Other than that, I only expect him to start a max of 3 games in the next 4..

        I am happy enough with his influence in games to get enough returns to justify having him even with the rotation risk.

        Would I rather have Gundo? Yes. But will Gundo continue with his form while KDB is back? Still unsure about that, which makes me even more optimistic that Foden can do even better with KDB in the squad

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I'd take 3/4 starts no worries, that would be a result

          At least if he is benched he's not a 11.0m player 😉

      Guesses on EO this week?

      Bruno
      Kane
      Salah

        Very high

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          🙂

          I was thinking it could be something like 160%+ for Bruno
          Basically 100% ownership, assume say 40% captain him and half of these are TCs

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            I agree, only thing stopping Bruno being higher is the massive choice of C & TC options

    • Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Tarkowski -> Stones (-4) is a no brainer right?

      Better DGW this week. Extra DGW next week. Better defence. Better fixtures.

      1. Scratch
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        What does Pep consider his best CB pairing right now? Stones will play the weekend for sure but then there's the midweek game against a fairly toothless Wolves followed by United next weekend. Pep opted to stars Stones against Liverpool and Spurs already this month and I would expect will start him vs United.

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Given their record this year I’d say the first choice pairing has to be Stones/Dias. I’d guess they get 3/4 starts each and Laporte gets 1/2 over the next 4 games.

    • AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Triple Captain:

      A) Kane
      B) Bruno
      C) DCL

    • Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      BGW29 will be the time to transfer out Man City assets? And then get back in best options after, if things are clearer?

      I reckon I'll ditch Stones & Foden that week. Just gotta ride the storm over next five games

    • Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      -12 to get Kane and Calvert in already

      Would you activate WC or take the -12 ?

      If I dont activate the WC, I will TC Kane or Calvert this GW

      1. sozopol
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        -12 never a good idea IMO. If you activate WC, do you have a few more moves to make to optimize it?

      2. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        i think WC should be activated for 4 or more transfers but thats just my opinion.

        Think one of DCL & Kane is required this DGW for sure, if not both

      3. Scratch
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Ask yourself how many more of your starting XI will change if you hit WC or if you plan on taking more hits for the doubles in 27 and a probable 28

    • Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Reckon there could be some serious OR movement this GW, with so many chips being played and so many options of how to play them

    • Totalfootball

      Will Shaw play both the games in the double ?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        I think maybe 90/60 game time?

        1. Totalfootball
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          So is it better to go for Maguire instead ?

        He will play 180. Telles played 90 mins on Thursday.

        1. Totalfootball

          1 month, 18 days ago

          Arent they both rotating , coz if Shaw plays against palace , no chance he also Plays against city and he defo against city imo

      3. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Shaw over Maguire for sure

    • Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Of the most popular Man City assest, which players will play most minutes over the next four/five games?

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        KDB, Gundo, Ederson

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah, that sounds reasonable

          Defence will be one massive carrousel

          And no one has fwds anyway

        2. Rekk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I actually am not certain KDB should be in that list, they have just been on a tear without him, so why push him to play all these games after coming back from injury? I'd argue Foden should see more time than KDB. Think he has more in the tank.

      So I was on a -4 no matter what. Essentially every transfer is replacing non-playing player for DGW player. It's why I thought the -12 seemed acceptable.

      Still have WC and TC chips. Starting to have second thoughts about the -12, but using WC would mean losing the BB for this GW. I feel like I need the BB to make up some ground/not lose ground and relatively sure 7 teams above me will all be playing BB.

      Any advice much appreciated!

        Do you have different team linked? Your history says you have already used BB

          Hopefully he didn't forget he used it, if that's the case. Definitely should use that WC!

          Yes, guess I'd never gotten around to changing it this season. Fixed now. Definitely have the BB available. It is currently set to be active.

          Would love some input!

          Thanks!

      Why is everyone overlooking Salah for captain, surely a haul is expected against a weak Sheffield utd defense

        I think he would be my second choice after Gundo.

        1. kevos83
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Will Gundo play both 90 mins though is my concern there

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            even if he doesn't though

        He blanked twice in the reverse fixtures. Sheffield are no walkover and don’t concede many goals

        1. kevos83
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          They're missing pretty much whole defence now though. My main opponent is going for Kane so between Salah and Bruno for me

        He is due a rest. Jota is back

      The TC choice is doing my nut in...

          Bruno & Kane swapping every 5mins.

          Or Gundogan or Salah.

          Maybe DCL.

          Might punt on Foden.

            Lol, I hear you. On Kane now, still considering Bruno and DCL. It might just be nostalgic, but Kane Tiple Captain feels the most fun to me.

          2. timmmuh
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Logically, DCL has best fixtures - but just coming off injury; and had many 2 pt showings mid season; Kane has sneaky difficult fixtures and spurs seem off form; Salah, just risky
            Leaves Bruno - highest scoring player, in form, rarely has 2 bad games in a row ... there may be some that may outscored him but he is the safest/most reliable.
            Good luck

              Yeah, that's pretty much the argument I've been using all week for Bruno, seems like the soundest option.

              Chelsea game is putting he off

      Kane worth it for a -8 if I have Son?

      A) Grealish & Bamford to Lookman & Kane
      B) Coufal to Digne/Pereira (-4 only). Bench Grealish

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        B is probably better

    • Shake n Bake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Pick one (already have Gundogan and Dias)

      A) Salah, Cancelo and Smith-Rowe (EMS benched)

      B) KDB, Pereira and Lookman

      1. the dom 1

      Rashford seems to be the most understated asset here

      I reckon he gets at least 20 over the DGW
      Sadly can’t take a hit for him

    • vincentwsho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      On a WC and almost finalized.... which of the following is better?

      A) B.Traore as 1st sub (if Watkins doesn't play, then he can be subbed in)

      B) Ward-Prowse / Minamino (can start in DGW27, but if Watkins doesn't play in DGW26, Luke Thomas will be my only DGW sub)

      Will FH in 29, so don't necessary need Traore for 29

      Transfer out Bamford for DCL (-4)?

      Considering TCing DCL because of very favorable DGW fixtures. Would have to bench Raphinha. Otherwise I would TC Kane.

      Martinez, (Areola)
      Stones, Cancelo, Lowton, (Dallas, Coufal)
      Salah, Fernandes, Gundogan, Barnes, Raphinha
      Kane, Watkins, (Bamford)

      Any changes needed? Starting 11 and bench okay. Confused about who to start between Raph and Bamford ofc

      1. Holmes
