The Bench Boost chip: Is it more trouble than it’s worth?

Ex-FPL winner Simon March: How to avoid getting carried away with your GW1 picks

Like many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers, I’ve racked up some big ol’ bench scores lately and, when I’m not kicking myself for having not played my Bench Boost, I’ve been wondering whether the way I and many others approach the use of this chip needs reviewing.

What I mean is, while Bench Boost is probably everyone’s least favourite chip, we tend to hold on to it as if it is something valuable that shouldn’t be wasted, like mini Bounties in a box of Celebrations. Traditionally Bench Boost sits on the sidelines until there’s a Double Gameweek, but is this actually sensible? Is Bench Boost actually more trouble than it’s worth and are we, in fact, better off just getting it out of the way? Those questions, and more, will be the focus of this article.

How We Fell Out of Love With the Bench Boost Chip

Esteem in the Bench Boost as a chip has slowly eroded ever since it first emerged in the 2015/16 FPL season. There was a time when it was a core part of a serious FPL manager’s strategy and, more specifically, their Double Gameweek strategy. It is undeniable that, going into a Double Gameweek with 15 players – all of whom had two fixtures – was indeed a blast, at least at first.

Then a couple of things happened. Firstly, since Double Gameweeks are notorious for rotation, we started to notice that our boosted bench players were often only playing one fixture (and, perhaps, a cameo) and the fixture they did play frequently wasn’t the best one anyway. Why were we saving this chip only to play it on some mediocre fixtures and, more to the point, why were we allowing this prospect to dictate how we structured our teams or even how and when we used our Wildcards?

Secondly, there was the emergence of the Free Hit chip which allowed unlimited temporary changes for one week and, it turns out, was a much better way of tackling Double Gameweeks as it didn’t necessitate the use of planning, restructuring or using a Wildcard. Bench Boost became a bit of an afterthought as chips go, yet we committed FPL managers still tend to save them for the Double Gameweeks.

A Successful Bench Boost

What even is a successful Bench Boost? Naturally, there is no formal answer but it seems widely accepted that anything over 20 points is a very decent return. Now, 20 points is nothing to be sneezed at; right now it could equate to hundreds of thousands in rank depending on where you currently are in the overall league. Or it could be the difference between winning and losing a mini-league come the end of the season.

But, 20 points? Is that enough for it to have a significant impact on our strategy? That’s really the equivalent of one or two good differential captain choices and, when you consider that an ‘unsuccessful’ Bench Boost might still be, say, eight points, we’re talking about a net difference of maybe 12 points between a successful and an unsuccessful Bench Boost. Nobody would rationally let the pursuit of a 12-point advantage dictate their FPL strategy to the extent that we often let the Bench Boost shape it.

When Should We Use the Bench Boost?

Even if you didn’t build your strategy around it, how you use your Bench Boost is still important. I mean, points are points. Looked at in isolation, there is obvious logic for using it in a Double Gameweek as, by definition, Double Gameweeks give an opportunity (if not necessarily the likelihood) for your player to play twice rather than once. If you can field 15 players instead of 11, then you potentially increase the opportunity for points even further.

But these decisions don’t come in isolation and, because you can’t play two chips in one Gameweek, fielding 15 (or close to) Double Gameweek players may necessitate the use of a Wildcard to plan for it, possibly in the Gameweek before the one you’re focusing on (which is less than ideal) and, simultaneously, using the Bench Boost negates the opportunity to use chips such as the Wildcard, Free Hit or Triple Captain directly in the Double Gameweek which, arguably, might be more effective for that scenario anyway.

So, if you’re not using it in a Double Gameweek, when should you use the Bench Boost chip? Well, knowing when to use your Bench Boost is much like knowing when you’re in love; you look at the fixtures, and you just ‘know’. Sadly, this particular revelation more often than not comes after a Gameweek has finished but, if you get that feeling in advance, I’m of the opinion that you should go for it. If it pays off, brilliant and, if it doesn’t, oh well, at least you don’t have to worry about it anymore, and not having to worry about it anymore can actually be an advantage in itself.

It’s worth pointing out though that, one sure-fire way to undo your Bench Boost is when one of your bench players gets auto-subbed in anyway as, obviously, this effectively shrinks your bench to three rather than four players. So, avoiding periods of heavy rotation such as immediately following an international break or during periods of heavy fixture congestion will make sense for maximising your Bench Boost opportunity. 

Being sure that all 15 of your players are fit is obviously important as well and, despite what I said earlier, it is worth pointing out that playing the Bench Boost in a Double Gameweek does of course improve your chances of getting at least one appearance out of each of your 15 players, even if that fixture isn’t the ideal one.

That said, if you find yourself with a real benching headache one Gameweek, you could legitimately play your Bench Boost just to allow you to play that one player who you think could score well but who you can’t justify starting. Many would see this as a ‘waste’ of the chip but, if that player scores a double-figure haul, they’ve more or less justified using it on their own.

However, there is one final argument that suggests that the Bench Boost might be best kept in your back pocket, whether or not you use it in a Double Gameweek and that has to do with team value. Theoretically, if your team value goes up, the quality of your squad should also improve, meaning that your overall 15 should be of a better standard towards the end of the season than it is earlier on. This is a reasonable perspective and, even though it could be the worst time imaginable for rotation threat, I even quite like the idea of a Gameweek 38 bench boost, if only for the lolz.

Conclusion

Personally, I do think that the Bench Boost is ‘more trouble than it’s worth’ or, at least, it is if you allow it to be. The difference between a ‘successful’ and ‘unsuccessful’ Bench Boost is typically so small that it hardly justifies building for it or using a Wildcard and/or a Double Gameweek to maximise it. In fact, doing so could be detrimental, having negative knock-on consequences for your strategic options and performance otherwise.

However, this does not mean that the Bench Boost chip is of no use at all. As discussed, there are ways to maximise your return from it and, at the end of the season, every little will count (literally). What I would say though is don’t be afraid to use it if you feel it is the right time.

Finally, while many dislike the Bench Boost chip it is, in many ways, the best one because it comes with such low expectations. Not many FPL managers will get an extraordinary return from it so its failure won’t define your FPL season, thus you can approach its use with a ‘riskier’ mindset and view any return you do get from it as pure profit.

    What is your views on FF Fix guys?
    Seems to have slipped in standard.

      Have been 2-3 years since I have used them, didnt provided anything out of box imo.

        I use less now I use LiveFPL. Their transfer planner is useless. Their price rise monitor is useless.

      I came across it for the first time this season, found it was very rarely right with price change predictions when fplstats hadn't made the same prediction, only looked at it for about 2 weeks

        Yeah. A site that sends you to pay for something. I would be willing if their site ifo was good. How can they expect someone to sign up if the free part is so poor?

      A waste of a post Ruth. Do you really think anyone can answer you with the limited info you supply.
      There is no question mark so maybe you are just telling people what you are doing.

        I still want to know. I have Steele but the rest consists of Bissouma, Gray and Williams. Don’t see any points there.

      Having watched Cancelo against MU I think he is 100% certain a season keeper. Did Dias to him after game and I never make early transfers. Just magic for that price point. Essentially a creative winger that can get clean sheets and BPS.

      1. FantasyClub

    DON'T reply to this.

    From the eye test last gameweek, the one that really stood out was Reece James. I plan to play 442 and dangerously, avoid TOT's players.

    How would you get James in? Team:

    Sanchez/Steele

    TAA, Cancello, Chilwell, White, Livra.

    Salah, Benny, Jota, Raphinha, Allan

    Jiminez, Antonio, Vardy.

      Is this some kind of reverse psychology mumbo jumbo?

      White + Benny to ESR + James?

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years

        Apparently the brain can not process "don't." Acc to a certain golf psychologist anyway.

    2. Black Knights
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      I think TAA, Cancelo, Chilwell, and one of White or Livra will work out as your back 4 every week. I don't think you need to spend any more money on it so if you need James, consider Chilwell > James.

      Otherwise it's what, Benny down to Gallagher and White up to James?

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Harder than it looks. I think you're 0.1 short of Benny - Gallagher/ESR, White - James, right? And not many options to downgrade Jimenez by 0.9. If you want 442 then I guess lose Antonio for 4GW, otherwise it has to be Vardy

  7. Babit1967

      1. Finding Timo

        You know my team! Yes TAA, livra, cancello, chilly plus Omo so thought about getting spurs too. Otherwise to get son hsve to lose a premium

          I would avoid then unless you plan to play 4 or 5 at the back each week

          This week for example you bring him in then have to bench livra at home to Norwich

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      Despite popular belief I still prefer Kane because I think he’s more explosive, proven to absolutely love a hatrick and I think if getting for a short period then the upside is more

      For me still holding cr7 it is also a much easier move to make if I make it at all

    2. Jafalad

      Son - just not seeing any form from Kane.

    3. DAZZ

      So many people are avoiding Kane, crazy, i’m jumping on board this week. Brentford Leeds Norwich all at home in next 4, if he fails and flops in these 4, i’ll sell for Ronaldo and admit i was wrong.

    Interesting article this.

    I think the trouble with DGW BB is that normally you expect to comfortably above 100 points and that will often distort your view that the BB is best played on a DGW too.

    If the fixtures land well, I do think playing BB in a SGW is feasible, especially this year where are benches are bloated with value.

    1. Silver_and_Gold
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 17 days ago

      You've touched upon an interesting issue of BB. People tend to use it to maximize a week and get great points total. However, BB is designed to be used in a week, when your 4 worst players score the most. During DGW you rarely have luck of 15 players playing twice. Ergo - even in DGW your bench plays one game, and quite often there are better opportunities for BB during regular GWs (see GW11 for instance).

    2. Black Knights
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 17 days ago

      DGW BB has more hope of working well in conjunction with a WC. You don't wanna keep taking -4s to fill your bench or it's already cost too much, and you don't want to be left with too much money on the bench after, so you either need to WC into it or WC after it.

        You're right. Nevertheless this season (as well as the previous one) tend to push us into playing bench (injuries, covid cases and rotation). As such, you're kind of over-invested on the bench, for a reason. In such situation 1 in 10 GWs looks like a bragain for BB, as you suddenly realise, how strong the bench looks - see GW11 BB conundrum of many on this forum.

          As long as the injuries, Covid cases and rotation don't happen on the SGW week you are BBing of course 😉 - on the two GWs the week after the IB this season so far, I've had 7 absentees, so no way I would consider BBing this week.

    Which GK is likely to score more points from GW12 to end of season?
    A) Ramsdale
    B) Sanchez
    C) McCarthy

      Almost identical question below. You don’t fancy Guaita?

    Morning all

    Anyone feel that they are always behind the curve? Bought Lukaku- injured, bought Vardy- stops scoring, chose Chilwell over James, sold White and kept Marcal. The list keeps going!

    This GW I was hoping to save the FT but Sanchez red means I have to swap him out to

    A. Guaita
    B. McCarthy
    C. Ramsdale

    Cheers for any input.

      Do you not have Foster/Steele?

      1. Killitzer
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        I wish. Originally I had £4.0m Foster as backup but on my wc changed to Steer as apparently there was more chance he would play!

          Steer playing over Martinez, I certainly don't think so. I'd say that's one of the unlikeliest in the entire league.

          I'd almost prefer to swap Steer or take a blank rather than transfer out Sanchez, it's only a week.

    Nearly entire England starting xi in euro finals having a mare of a season

    Who saw that coming

    Pickford- Only 3 cs in 11 gws

    Shaw- Shadow of last season player

    Maguire- less said, the better.
    Absolutely comical

    Stones- Fell behind Laporte in pecking order

    Phillips- struggled with injuries

    Mount- same as Phillips

    Sterling- Out of favor

    Kane- Downing tools after failed move to city

    Only Rice Walker and Tripper had a good season so far

    1. Gabbiadini

      its mentality.

    2. Gabbiadini

      Although, and I'm not sure what other people think but I disagree with the Kane - "downing tools" assessment.

      It's a lack of pre-season and the fact he is getting older, a perceived player of his quality, previously, has too much quality for performance to have dropped to such a level.

      This one can't only be a mindset.

    Have a couple options.. would love anyone’s opinions thank you (-4) have Kane already.

    A-Vardy and Mbuemo to Son and Wilson.
    B-Vardy and D.Luiz/Sissoko to Hwang and Son.
    C-Vardy and D.Luiz/Sissoko to Jota and Jesus.

      A like by far...

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 17 days ago

        Really?
        Using 2 transfers to trade Vardy and Mbeumo, I'm not sure that's worthwhile. Not at all.

    Hi all, should I -4 to buy Guaita? So I can have rotating GK (the other one is Sanchez and he's out right now)

    1. kempc23

      I would probably go Sanchez to Guaita rather than have rotating and waste funds. Guaita looks good for a while.

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Rudiger Cancelo Livra 4.0
    Salah Jota Raphinha Mbeumo Sissoko
    Kane Antonio Toney

    2FT and £1.1m in bank. Am seriously thinking Sanchez to Guaita and 4.0 to Reguilon and then bench boost of-

    Steele Livramento Mbeumo Sissoko

    I would be happy with 10-15 points from those guys. More often than not, bench boost messes up my team as im left with too much money in the bank (last year stuck with crappy Pope £5.5m for ages).

    Thoughts?
