Dubravka returns as Newcastle host Wolves in Double Gameweek 26

Martin Dúbravka (£4.8m) makes his first Premier League start of the season as Newcastle host Wolves in Double Gameweek 26.

The Slovakian international has missed much of the campaign through injury and finally wrestles the starting berth from Karl Darlow (£5.0m).

That makes for an interesting shift in the Newcastle squad ahead of their involvement in Blank Gameweek 29, when they face a Brighton side with just one goal in their last three.

Callum Wilson (£6.5m) remains on the sidelines for the Magpies, Joelinton (£5.7m) leading the attack tonight with Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m), Joe Willock (£4.7m) and Miguel Almirón (£5.6m) in support.

Wolves have gone under the radar for Double Gameweek 26 investment, largely because their second fixture takes them to Manchester City.

Accordingly, backers of Pedro Neto (£5.7m) will be looking to tonight’s fixture in expectation, the Wolves man currently in 7.1% of teams worldwide.

He starts on the left-hand side of Wolves’ front-three, joined there by Willian Jose (£7.0m) and Adama Traoré (£6.0m).

Max Kilman (£4.0m) remains a substitute and awaits his first start since Gameweek 23 with Romain Saïss (£4.9m), Conor Coady (£4.8m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.6m) in the back-three.

Double Gameweek 26 Line-ups

Newcastle United XI: Dúbravka; Lewis, Clark, Lascelles, Krafth; Hayden, Shelvey; Saint-Maximin, Willock, Almirón; Joelinton.

Wolves XI: Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Semedo; Neto, Willian J, A Traoré.

Double Gameweek 26 so far…

Aston Villa demonstrated that they do not necessarily need Jack Grealish (£7.6m) to win Premier League matches as they beat Leeds 1-0.

Anwar El Ghazi (£5.3m) has been afforded more game-time in the England international’s absence and he took his chance on Saturday afternoon.

He latched onto the end of Ollie Watkins‘ (£6.5m) wayward shot in the first half, cutting the ball under an on-rushing Illan Meslier (£4.7m).

Leeds were unable to build on their 3-0 win over Southampton in Double Gameweek 26, their key assets faltering in their only match of the round.

With Patrick Bamford (£6.9m), Raphinha (£5.4m) and Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) all failing to register points, it was Emiliano Martínez (£5.3m) who emerged with another big haul thanks to a clean sheet, three saves and maximum bonus. A familiar story.

Meanwhile, Matt Targett (£4.9m) and Ahmed El Mohamady (£4.3m) also benefited from the shutout, although each was booked and lost a respective point.

    Only 16 points from first match day, 9 by Martinez.

    Easily lagging behind by 20-30 points already. Sigh.

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Top 10k average is 20.7

      1. Salan

        Really? I can't expect this.

        1. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yes 20.7 (after hits) with effectively 19.5 players to go

          Not everyone owns Johnstone, Martinez, Dias, Stones & Watson honestly!

    2. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I guess very few have 46 points.

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Top 10 in my ML all top 100k, and only one of us has above 20 points. Not exactly a high-scoring DGW so far

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Also a lot of people who played bench boost who’d’ve been hoping for a bit more from their SGW Leeds players.

        1 month, 19 days ago

        I 'was' at 80k. Unluckily my ML (I led by 30 pts) rivals, many of them have Martinez, Man City CBs, Johnstone, even Watkins.

        Need Kane & DCL 'do' something.

        1. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Well I’ve got Kane and DCL (C) so let’s hope our fortunes improve from here!..

  2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 4 Years

    Peacock-Farrell & Bamford to Johnstone & Watkins (-4) already paid off 🙂

  3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years

    A bit of early planning but need to bring in a defender with my FT who plays in 29. Brighton and Newcastle the best options considering the other fixtures?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Dunk is on free kicks 😉

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Mason says no!

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Im waiting on Lamptey here

      With him back Brighton might actually score

      Wouldn't touch Newcastle

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Solid suggestion that. As always. Thanks!

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Thing is Brighton are about to drop right to the bottom of the ticker. They look great in the 2 BGWs in 29 and 33 but apart from that really poor.

          In two minds whether those 2 fixtures are worth it. I'm weak at the back as it is and don't need to be carrying another fodder there

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I was looking at that too. And yes, apart from them playing in 29 Brighton has really poor fixtures. I think Arsenal is a good option. Apart from 4, have some decent fixtures till the end of the season.

  4. onceuponatyne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Just some Toon perspective on Darlow/Dubravka.

    At the start of a season, Dubravka is the better option if both fit... but Darlow has been literally our player of the season and the single position that's not an issue in our side. A strong manager should have been building his confidence and pushing him for an England squad spot. Dubravka is better, but coming in cold to a position that didn't need changing? Meanwhile Joelinton, Shelvey and Lewis have been garbage for months and don't get dropped. Bruce is awful.

    Anything could happen in this game, but Darlow being dropped is outrageous.

    1. beetlejuice
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      FPLwise, 2nd GK of Newcastle having 5.0 price tag is beyond me.

      1. onceuponatyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Hard to argue with that, especially with our defence.

    2. Hawk
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Agreed. This move was totally unnecessary.

    3. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Agree. Besides the 'mistake' on Rashford goal, he has been immense this season.
      Bruce comments and him dropping after that seems harsh.

      1. onceuponatyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd sooner blame the defenders for the few things Darlow isn't nailing - he's been immense you're right.
        The biggest joke for me is how awful some of the outfielders are, and they play each week. Why Gayle doesn't start ahead of Joe baffles me.

  5. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Where was the bot tweets for X Person at Newcastle United has sold their teammate Darlow then??

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      No transfers from in the camp or no coverage.

    2. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It has been leaked all week.
      Short of a confirmation, but Toon fans expected it all week from gormless manager comments.

  6. Sean
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I hope nobody spent too long deciding between starting Bamford and Raph

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I couldn't decide, so started both...

    2. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Nah, it was Raph all along

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      For TC?

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It was easily my most time-consuming decision this week - for nothing!

  7. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    At least I did not BB for massive 5 points from 3 Leeds players

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Save it for gw39.

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Hahaha. Awesome joke.

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        GW30 looks good for three Leeds players.

    2. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I did. BB wasted...maybe TC next round with Cancelo

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I took -16, but kept Raphinha. So far ok.

    4. BDA Shadow
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      You had the wrong three mate, I got 6 from them.

  8. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Konsa has negated the hit I took to play him over Bamford. Now I can look forward to his 15 pointer vs Sheffield 🙂

  9. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Is Martinez injured? Didn’t see the match. Christina mentioned it on the other page

    1. hullcityfan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Was holding his groin near the end with Mings taking goal kicks.

      Didn’t look serious though.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Let’s hope not! What a legend he is

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years

      Probably since I only just bought him

      1. Don Kloppeone

      Quote from post match interview

      Aston Villa boss Dean Smith says Emi Martinez had a tight groin towards the end of the game hence the defenders taking goal kicks

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not something you often see. Not worrying but glad I still have Pope just in case!

  10. The Tinkerman
    • 5 Years

    Bench has 11 points with just El Mo to play 🙁 the worst chip...

    Sanchez
    Bamford
    Raphinha
    El Mo

    1. bigwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Another 6 from Elmo and it's not a disaster

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'm glad I pulled out of BB. 5 points so far with just McCarthy to play.

    3. marcos11
        1 month, 19 days ago

        8 so far here with Watkins and McCarthy to go, dependant on Watkins doing well at Sheffield atm

    4. Alex_thekid
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      First week owning Martinez now i know why everyone has him lol don't know why I didn't get him in sooner

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Same here, I've lost 50 points sticking with McCarthy since GW1.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          And I ditched him for Mendy... Glad to have him back, but...

      2. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He is FPL legend already!!

      3. Alex_thekid
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I've had McCarthy all season then went for Johnstone for my BB then got in Pope a few gws ago now Martinez and fodder on my 2nd WC will just play him for the rest of the season probably

    5. Tomas_brolin
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Diagne

      I did Antonio to him for -4. West Brom has a double, he has good stats but I now realise he’s just not very good and will underperform xG and West Brom are crap. Anyone else get him in this week? Didn’t watch the game - is there hope for the Everton match?

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I toyed with doing Brewster to him or Maja for a hit, but choose against doing and will take Brewster's 1 or 2 points. ( am on BB )

    6. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Anyone else TC Salah? 🙂

      1. Chrisitis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yes

      2. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Kinda wish I did but all my ML rivals capped Kane like me so at least I can’t lose out too much!

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Same here

      3. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        TC Kane with Salah VC

    7. CrouchDown
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Leeds are really a week on week off kind of team aren’t they?

      1. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Very inconsistent.

    8. Alex_thekid
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      38 points gw rank of 149k 65k green arrow for now but it will swing massive every day with all the games this dgw as long as I'm above average I'll be happy and won't be taking the rank jump serious and level out by the end of the first games

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        38 points as well. I'm finally off to a good start in a DGW, but as you say it's still early days.

    9. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Thought hard about one of these 3 potential moves..

      Bamford to Watkins
      Dallas to Targett
      Soucek to El Ghazi

      Was put off Watkins by the rumours..
      Went Targett eventually..Not bad start but in hindsight should have gone El Ghazi..
      Not because he scored..I may want Dallas more than Soucek in GW29..

      Well anyway let's hope captain Kane explodes..

    10. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      8 point bench boost, awful! I'm sure Dallas will probably score a brace off my bench next GW too 😀

      1. JJeyy
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        8 all out?

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yep! My bad for choosing SGWers but I genuinely thought Sanchez had a decent CS shout vs. WBA and Bamford/Raphina had great recent attacking stats, Villa weak defensive stats. Ah well, least I don't have to worry about the chip anymore!

          1. JJeyy
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            tough one, Leeds seem to be running BB this year

          2. Max City
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I didn't play it on 19 when I had 17 points on the bench..

            Regretted it, I played it on the next GW, GW20, for an additional score of 5 from the bench (De Gea, Coufal, and Kane scored 1 point each)

            After that, my bench scored massive 36 and 23 points on GW 23 and 24 hahaha..

      2. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Always the way.

        I played it in GW19 for a bench of 8pts. Funnily enough it was all the Leeds boys too!

      3. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Could be worse. I forgot to press BB in GW37 in 2019 and ended up will just a single point form it in GW38.

    11. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'm a bit surprised by the amount of people who captained (and TC'd) Kane. Knew he would be popular choice obviously, but I expected the EO of DCL, Bruno and even Salah to be higher with TC chips in play.

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Me too. I think it's because most people have used up their TC already.

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I thought Bruno's EO would be way higher than 117%. The great Legomane matrix shows how amazingly consistent he has been with hardly any blanks in two game combinations this season:

      3. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        They probably listened to Black Box.

    12. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Play Saka (bur) or Watkins (WOL)?

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Wat

      2. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Saka

    13. Flynny
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      As a cancelo dias and gundog owner could be a v tough captain call for gw27 - particularly is gundog starts midweek

      Not willing to get kdb in for a hit and lose Bruno....

      May end up with a choice of rotation risk gundog and cancelo or kane with a single game v Palace....

      Anyone else feeling this? Thanks

      1. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I am thinking Cancelo...

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          May as well captain Lamptey

      2. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Very early thoughts at the moment are Kane(c) vs Palace.

        Any of Stones, Gundog, Cancelo, even Dias might only play 1 match and the United fixture is very tough to predict. Wouldn't like to captain a defender with the risk of them playing just one fixture vs United.

          Manchester derby could be cagey 0-0..
          So whichever defender we feel get 180 min maybe good option..

            It could well be a cagey 0-0.

            Just thinking of a normal week, would you captain a defender playing against United (the highest scoring team in the league this season?) If we knew Dias or Cancelo were sure to play both fixtures, they might be worth considering, but there is potentially a big risk of rotation.

            1. acidicleo
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Not any other team..
              But City defence is a different level altogether..
              But as you said rotation risk is putting me off too..
              Kane may be a good shout..

        Glad I got KDB in this week but still not sure who is the best captain pick yet...will have to wait till next week...

          Yup plenty of time

    14. dylano21

      Who will score higher next week ?

      A) Dallas + Salah
      B) Bruno + Perreira

      1. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Close..I think B due to Bruno..

        1. acidicleo
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Sorry was confused about fixtures..
          I think A..

      On Wildcard this week
      Good - 29 from 6, with 18 players to go
      Bad - Bartley 1st Sub
      Would love Cancelo to miss 2nd game but I know it won’t happen!

      1. acidicleo

      If you could afford any non Manchester defender who would get ?

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Shaw?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Already got him, Dias and Stone so am thinking non Manchester clubs.

      2. brianutd-why always we? 20

        Digne

        1 month, 19 days ago

        I got Ricardo Pereira after a long debate between him, Digne and Reguilon.

        Pereira has great fixtures and a DGW this week and is possibly OOP. Digne is a good option and may have an extra game in GW28, but not sold on Everton defense. Reguilon has great fixtures and vitally a GW29 fixture but I'm afraid he will share minutes with Davies and I'd be concerned that he hasn't ever really nailed down his starting spot yet.

        Trent did briefly cross my mind.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          how about Alonso ?

          1. Collie01
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Don't really like the fixtures, he doesn't play in GW29 and I'd still be wary of possible rotation with Chilwell. At the moment Alonso seems first choice but doesn't mean he will play every match of a packed schedule.

        Thinking beyond 29 Wolves may be a shout. From 31 -35 they have an almost perfect run.

        Not quite sure who's properly nailed there

    17. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Is this the lowest effective ownership game ever?

      Not a single player in Newcastle vs Wolves has an effective ownership above 1% in the top 10k

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        What is "effective ownership"?

          Ownership. Check livefpl.com.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Ownership considering captains/chips

      2. Dammit_182
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I was looking at netto but went Barnes instead. Wolves look good from 31 and if it wasn’t a DGW (Where they play citeh) would have backed them for this.

      3. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Tell you what guys, just looking at next week, and for those with BB left it could be a great time to play it!

        I’m going to have a massive benching headache if I don’t play it!

            • 4 Years

            Ok that could be a shout too

          That’s my plan, On wildcard this week..BB in 27...bring it on!

          Who will be on ur bench?

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Martinez | Bamford | Dallas | Lowton

            McCarthy
            Cancelo | Vestergaard | El Mohamady
            KdB | Bruno | Son | Gundogan | Pereira
            Kane | DCL

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Playing McCarthy 🙂

              That looks a weak bench to me. WH are a form team after all

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Who would you bench then next week?

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  I wouldn't play McCarthy over Martinez - still less Vestergaard (hadn't spotted him) over Dallas. It's not really a DGW for them at all barring miracles.

                  1. KAPTAIN KANE
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 19 days ago

                    Ah cos of the City game

                1 month, 19 days ago

                True, so were Leicester though and Leeds went there and tore them a new one.
                I really like Leeds on the road this season

            If Kane is benched I will actually quit

              Kane may quit spurs too if jose bench him..

                Jose is letting Kane decide if he up to playing.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I had a straight choice of Kane and DCL, and went with the later because of those ankles.

        Any news on Martinez ? He's not injured ?

          Missed the game, didn't know about it.

          Luckily I have a backup GK.

          Unfortunately it's Dirty Sanchez & Brighton's propensity to concede randomly.

      7. NateDogsCats

          Did Martinez pick up an injury? Saw Smith said somehow about him struggling with tightness in groin or something similar

            Double Villa defence on BB, expected the CS against Sheffield, but I'll take it. everyone has him anyway it hardly matters
