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.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          But they have great fixtures for next 4 GW’s as well as potentially having dgw in GW28. Plus playing defensively suspect Southampton and West Brom, so Dignes chances of attacking returns seem good

    2. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      1 month, 16 days ago

      Zero truth

    2. Art Vandelay
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Very spurious rumour with, in all likelihood, nothing behind it.

  6. si

    A. Moura and KdB or
    B. Bâle and Mahrez

                  Tricky because when you start to take too many gambles it becomes less and less likely to make a profit overall. If you do it make it your last this week for sure

            • 10 Years

            1. Zlatan F.C
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Antonio and Grealish to Kane and Lookman - 4

              Not confident on Kane TC at all... But that’s just me... Going Salah TC myself, with Kane vice

              1. The 12th Man
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                No Salah for me.
                Fernandes is the safe bet but that Chelsea game puts me off.

                1. Orion
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  I’m searching for the differential TC, that’s why

                  1. The 12th Man
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    Barnes?

                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      Went with no Leicester at all

                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    I'm going Salah too. Sheffield United with no centre backs is a plum fixture

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  In your shoes I would TC Fernandes (without Salah). He is so reliable away from home

          • Zlatan F.C
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Kane TC or DCL TC?

              1. The 12th Man
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                I’ve gone Kane but DCL could do well too.

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Can't trust either of them I think. I'm going Salah TC. That Sheffield United fixture is plum

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                I’ve gone DCL, even opted against getting Kane in. Not convinced is Spurs form and kind of feel that mourinho has lost some of the dressing room and that this is the beginning of the end of Mourinho

                I have a similar setup, and I’m still not sure I want to BB SGW players.

                Would love to know your thought process behind it!

                  If youre going to bb later u will have sgw players on the bench either way

                  Leeds vs villa without grealish at home is a good enough fixture plsu all 3 leeds players are explosive

                  Then i have a DGW keeper so its a good opportunity to be done with bb. I have FH and TC still itb so running out of dgws soon

                  1. LakhaneeFC

                    Makes sense. I think not having that extra GK is killing the idea for me.

                    Not tempted by TCing one of the premium options this time?

                    1. Nightcrawler
                      • 1 Year
                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      Yes that was tempting but villa being so open defensively and the extra keeper seung it for me

                      Your situation is less straightforward becuase of the keeper. 50/50 in ur case i think. If we had another big dgw coming up it would be easier call but thats not the case

                        True, probably might pull the trigger by the deadline.

                        But best of luck for the GW!

              Morning ,can't decide if considering selling Trent for a -8 is a bot mental
              or not! I wanted to do it it with Digne but have been priced out of it now and can only get a defender up to 5.9m with Pereira looking a good option.
              So...
              Trent and Antonion to Pereira and DCL for -8 yes or no?

              1 month, 16 days ago

              Who would you rather captain from:

              A) Sterling
              B) KDB
              C) DCL

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Tought 1, i'd be tempted to take a bit of a risk with KDB as there is a huge upside if he plays both games and starts firing again. Sterling probably safer though and you can make a case for DCL as well. Go with your gut.

                Tempted go for a city player so I know if I’ve failed in the first game or not haha!

              Should I get DCL with a hit?
              This will include selling Watkins for him and Salah/Bruno to Barnes

                I wouldn't, Watkins could do well against Sheffield United

                  Some rumours on Twitter say that he is injured and I'm Bench Boosting so I'm a little bit afraid tbh

              Hello!

              I have 11 DGW players, and am wondering whether this SGW bench is worth BBing:

              McCarthy, Rafinha, Struijk , Burn

              I’m not convinced that BBing here would be ideal, but I’m not sure what other week would work better for BB

              Thoughts?

                1 month, 16 days ago

                I've got the same bench and am planning to BB GW30.

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  I see, I assume FH in GW29 and then BB in 30?

                  There are SO many people BBing a similar looking bench, I’m getting some FOMO 😛

                  I’m currently thinking of using it in a smaller DGW post GW30

                    Leeds and Brighton both play in GW29, and your other keeper can play in GW29. So can work with or without FH.

                I would have Bruno over Kevin

              I've gone rogue. 22k overall but in need of a change so I've taken a -16,

              Ings, Bamford, Grealish and Soucek OUT.

              Kane, DCL, Gundogan and Barnes IN.

              Now considering Coufal OUT for Targett. Thoughts?

              Not Wildcarding as the TC is on Kane.

                Currently a -12, would become -16 with the Targett move.

                        would only be a -16

                I understand kane, gundo, Barnes, and dcl. I've done 3 of those myself.
                But I think it's now diminishing returns. Target is not that good

                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  My thinking is Coufal score 2 max, probably 1 point. Targett gets atleast 4 and return at all covers the -4
