The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for Double Gameweek 26

Strap yourselves in for the biggest Double Gameweek 26 of the season, with 17 matches and 14 teams playing twice. The next six days promise to be another rollercoaster ride of unrelenting (Fantasy) Premier League action.

With potentially season-defining decisions to be made ahead of today’s 11:00 GMT deadline, the feeling among the Fantasy Community is that we are spoilt for choice.

The roll call of potential armband candidates ranges from the reassuringly expensive to enticing differentials. And for those with a selection of chips at their disposal the choice is made even trickier.

A Double Gameweek is the perfect time to deploy one of our four power-ups with the points ceiling raised for Bench Boost, Triple Captain, Free Hit and Wildcard thanks to the extra fixtures.

Indecision is final.

– Alan Hansen

Famous words from the king of pundits and decorated centre-half Alan Hansen. Although, strangely, the former Liverpool captain wasn’t referring to his Fantasy football team. Given the furore surrounding Aston Villa and their players this week you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

But we’re not about to hesitate at the crucial moment when it comes to FPL decision-making. And you can’t fault the effort, attitude and commitment of our very own pundits and experts. 

Divisive Kane

The captain poll favourite heading into the bumper round of fixtures is Harry Kane (£11.1m). A vote that left David and Joe somewhat perplexed. Never ones to dilly-dally when presented with an opportunity, the pair aren’t convinced of Kane’s credentials, despite the support among Community members.

The fixtures on paper do look nice but both Burnley and Fulham are very capable these days of chucking everyone behind the ball knowing full well that Spurs are having problems breaking people down … Both of these teams will take a point against Spurs, so they’re not going to overstretch themselves to go and win the game.

Over the last four matches, Burnley have the third-best expected goals conceded in the league, 3.18, the only two teams better than that are Chelsea and Man City. Fulham are in the top five, 3.23 goals they should have conceded, and they’ve only actually conceded the one goal. Their defence is doing much better as well and they’ve both got fantastic goalkeepers too … These are teams that can frustrate Spurs.

– David, Captaincy Video

Alan Hansen once said that for Tottenham to be a successful side they will need to get away from the philosophy of ‘pretty football’. Well, with Jose Mourinho in charge they’ve arguably done just that. Except without the success.

But what does Alan Hansen know about Fantasy football? We need a real expert, a man with three top 10,000 finishes and a best-ever rank of 817. Step forward Az

According to the FPL Black Box co-host, Harry Kane is the best captaincy pick. The handsome and dashing Az backs up his opinion with some impressive stats: citing Twitter user FPL_Swede he pointed out that in 10 games against the bottom eight teams, Kane has delivered an attacking return in every one, averaging 9.2 points a match. 

And the trio of wise Pro Pundits appearing on the latest episode of the FPL Wire, Zophar, Lateriser and Tom Freeman, all have the armband placed on the top-points-scoring forward in FPL this season. 

More heavyweight backing for the Spurs striker came from FFScout founder Mark Sutherns. Perhaps not that much of a surprise given that “Mark loves Kane”, to quote AZ, but Mark was worried he was being blinded by his own bias.

The best person to help us understand the flaws in our thinking is Pro Pundit and behavioural economics graduate, Simon March.

Expected Yakult

Stats are probiotics for gut feelings, reasoned the former FPL winner is his latest offering. 

Instinct may help you see opportunities that other managers don’t, or avoid the traps that others will fall into, but it may also create such traps if followed without sufficient interrogation. This is why it is important to sense-check decisions with some form of objective data or a second-opinion.

– Simon March

Jan Sienkiewicz noted in his Captain Sensible article that the form stats don’t favour Kane and co:

Both [Kane’s] and Spurs’ attacking statistics have been somewhat underwhelming in recent weeks. Only Crystal Palace have recorded fewer shots inside the box than Jose Mourinho’s team in their last six matches.

– Jan Sienkiewicz

So was Mark able to find a healthy dollop of Bifidobacterium Statisticalus to support his gut instinct?

The expected data is a problem, but with expected data, you’ve got to bear this in mind – that Kane and Son are just complete outliers … Son and Kane are the top two players in the Premier League [for xG Delta], they have exceeded their expected data by the biggest margins for goal involvement … they don’t need a lot of good quality chances to score goals.

– Mark Sutherns.

So convinced is Mark that he’s using his Triple Captain chip on Harry Kane.

But, as ever, other options are available. 

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), a player who’s perhaps been slightly overlooked by the masses, is Jan’s top pick. The leading goalscorer in the Premier League with 15 goals, Salah boasts impressive underlying stats: second only to team-mate Sadio Mané (£11.8m) for shots in the penalty box over the last six matches.

In the first of their two fixtures Liverpool take on a Sheffield United side down to the bare bones in defence. Their three first-choice centre-backs that helped them reach dizzying heights last season, John Egan (£4.7m), Jack O’Connell (£4.7m) and Chris Basham (£4.6m), are all ruled out for Chris Wilder.

But it’s their second fixture against Chelsea that, along with Liverpool’s poor form, is putting many off the Egyptian. However, Jan did unearth some encouraging news for Salah captainers:

Klopp holds an impressive head-to-head record against Thomas Tuchel. Out of the 14 meetings between the Germans, Klopp came out victorious on nine occasions. Additionally, those matches have produced as many as 43 goals, which makes it over three goals per game on average.

– Jan Sienkiewicz

Meanwhile, city rivals Everton are top of the fixture ticker when looking at Gameweek 26 in isolation: the Toffees host Southampton before a midweek trip to West Brom. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) therefore comes into contention.

And once again the stats make impressive reading. The forward has been particularly threatening on the road in recent times, accumulating 4.32 xG in his last six away matches – more than any other forward in the Premier League.

But the list of armband contenders goes on. Let’s not forget the Manchester teams with the in-form Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m), İlkay Gündoğan (£6.2m), Raheem Sterling (£11.6m), and the returning Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m).

If only we could fit them all in.

It’s Mo Sacrifice

Karam, Tom, and Zophar are all using their Wildcards and face several tricky selection dilemmas. 

On the Scoutcast Karam was given a hard time by Joe and David over his omission of Mohamed Salah.

Joe argued that it was easier to run from Salah than it was to run to him, explaining that because of Salah’s lofty price tag, downgrading to the likes of Son or De Bruyne is easy, whereas upgrading would be harder without sufficient funds in the reserve.

However, Tom Freeman is also sacrificing the most expensive FPL asset in order to benefit from a more balanced squad. A particular concern for Tom given that he plans to Bench Boost in Gameweek 27. 

One intriguing pick in his side is Jesse Lingard (£5.9m). West Ham take on Leeds United next Gameweek and Tom feels the direct running of the on-loan Manchester United midfielder could trouble Marcelo Biesla’s side. 

Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) is another differential to catch the eye, featuring in both Tom’s and Karam’s Wildcard XV’s. 

Karam is going all-in on Leicester City – tripling up with Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) coming in alongside Pereira. He’s even trusting the evergreen Englishman with the armband.

Manchester City-fan Karam has decided to abandon his conservative approach and take a few calculated risks in the hope of surging up the ranks. Encouragingly, the Foxes are on a par with Man City when it comes to shots on target (21) over the last four Gameweeks. 

Another forward to consider is Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m). The Senegalese has been on the end of five big chances in his four and a half games since joining West Brom, and is included in the Scout Picks, Tom’s Wildcard team, and was talked up by Lateriser.

Interestingly, all three Wildcarders still have their Free Hit chip available but none have committed to using it in Blank Gameweek 29.

When planning ahead in his usual meticulous fashion, Zophar identified Gameweek 33 as a better round for the Free Hit. The League Cup Final takes place between Spurs and Man City, meaning they will blank along with their scheduled opponents Southampton and Fulham.

The six-time top 5,000 manager sees greater potential for a big score compared to the four-match Gameweek 29.

Finally, Neale frisked the upcoming fixtures. The Team News compiler included a look at Gameweek 30 and beyond for those considering “dead-ending” their squads in Gameweek 29 and Wildcarding straight after.

TopMarx Fan of Fantasy Football and Monty Python. "Archimedes out to Socrates, Socrates back to Archimedes, Archimedes out to Heraclitus, he beats Hegel. Heraclitus a little flick, here he comes on the far post, Socrates is there, Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

    As a Cancelo owner, I'm not too upset by his benching. It's par for the course for owning him really that he will be benched from time to time.

    But, at least we have a decent chance that he may play the other game in the double and even the two games next GW.

    If I was a Sterling owner I'd be pretty upset about it I think considering his price and that he takes up a valuable MF spot that could be filled by Son, KDB, Salah, Bruno, Barnes etc...

    1. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sterling is a no go.

    2. seanie3
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      No one is safe in peps team from being benched except Ederson, each player comes with their own risk, fact

    3. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      That's why I like stones and Gundogan.. if they get benched it doesn't hurt as much. If they start it's always a marvelous feeling 🙂

      1. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years

        so true

        Yep switched to Ederson too for virtually guaranteed starts.

        Ederson, Stones, G'dog -Ticked :).

      Has the game even started?

      How will you feel at 90 if Sterling walks away with 15 and Cancelo remains rooted to the bench.

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        No the game hasn't started.

        I would feel fairly sanguine about it if Sterling gets 15 and Cancelo remains on the bench.

        I'm not sure where your hostile response has come from to be honest? I didn't say anything controversial at all did I?

      I think whichever City defender you have, it’s unlikely they’ll play both games.

      I have Stones, but don’t for one minute expect him to start v Wolves now. I don’t know why people make such a big deal about it. You kind of expect it by now with Pep.

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I have stones & dias.
        Surely one of them will play both games?..

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Dias good chance for both games. Stones less likely to play Wolves now (I would think)

    6. Tok721
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sadly I had both Sterling & Cancelo hurts...!
      Will ship out next game week Sterling!

        Dallas. Mitchell. Antonio. Mccarthy on the bench. Heres hoping my BB is rightfully saved.

        Would have done
        Antonio --> Watkins
        McCarthy --> Areola anyways.

        We shall see

          2 months, 19 days ago

          Nope, keeping kane.. just need 2m to move DCL to aguero so could downgrade salah to Jota if he features over this DGW at all as he is close to coming back for Liverpool according to Klopp..

          1. Bounce

            Could easily happen and jt ends up a 3-1 or 4-1 game with aguero to finally show the rest of that team how to finish in the 6 yard box and show up how poor Jesus is

            Why is walker in the team? Surely there are token English players that look less out of place? Maybe not?!

        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        We all knew there was a risk of Cancelo being benched. If you own him you're banking on him returning enough points over a run of fixtures for that not to matter. Which will probably be the case given his potential at both ends of the pitch. So hey ho.

        Not like the other City players aren't going to have their time on the bench too.

        1. GinjaWhinja
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          It also means he is primed to start the next 3 (and therefore the 2 in the next double gameweek).

        2. thegaffer82

            I’d take prime premier league Aguero over prime premier league Henry

              Henry is on his own level while playing in the PL. Best player to have played in the PL is Ronaldo but the best while playing in it, is Henry by far.

                I agree fully , Kun could edge it as a pure finisher though

            As a finisher, Aguero is better than even prime Henry. As an all round footballer, Henry was better.

            Depends where you place your emphasis.

              I think I lean to this TS . Henry better all round player though

          It's great to see Aguero back, I don't own him, but he's such a legend and I reckon his presence increases the likelyhood of returns for KDB (not sure about Gundo).

            No one is going to own him for this gw, but that will seriously change for next gw, probably gets 60 to 70 today to do enough damage to West Ham and then another 45 or 60 next game to get his match fitness all primed for dgw 28

              • 11 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Attackers may be the way to go for city doubles.. for single game weeks you want your city defenders to either start or stay on the bench the full game. For double gameweeks you want the opposite...an attacker can come on for even 10 mins and get you a point or 30 mins and get more than a point.. they can get taken off early for a rest if leading etc and hence can start 2 games without necessarily completing 120 mins like a defenders does.Anyway, this was part of my weird logic for double city attack instead of double defense for the next 2 gameweeks. Let's see how It goes.

              1. Valar(Keith)
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Without completing 180 mins* ..

                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  Yup. Not sure how stones/Gundogan/kdb is going to spoil my plans going forward? Kept my WC, BB, TC and FH and used my WC this week and have 8 players for GW 29 already along with 4 for possible GW 28.. all I do is plan ahead lol

              3. DK_13
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                I disagree. With Martinez's fixtures turning soon(and FH 29), I am more than happy to hold ederson as my 3rd city player. Dias being the other one(who has shown no signs of getting dropped, except when he was ill). And gundo is great value at 6 mil.
                Pep doesn't attack enough after going 1-0 up which is the reason I don't like the attacking double up

                1. Valar(Keith)
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  I've gone Stones, Gundogan and KDB.. switched cancelo to kdb on WC. Agree that ederson is safe as nailed though

              4. Werner Brothers
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                Attackers are rotation risk & we can never know where the goals are from (no obvious goal getter).

                Defence on the other hand is quite reliable.

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                More factors in this is price, team structure etc. I went full with dias, ederson and gundo but 18m spend for 3 almost rotation proof City assets, while the attackers outside foden and gundo costs 8 or more.

                2 months, 19 days ago

                I tend to agree, but it's not worth 1-2 FTs (or hits) to rejig the team for the sake of DGW Attacker Theory, which could result in losing, for example, losing 110 mins of football for the potential, relatively small, gain of 30 (albeit attacking) minutes.

                (Def) 180 - (Att) 70 = 110 mins lost
                (Def) 90 - (Att) 120 = 30 mins gained

                Hope that makes some sense

                  Of course it could actually be a gain of 50 mins (or more), but I was trying, and probably failing, to use your numbers.
