  • Gameweek 23: A chance of a very small Double Gameweek*.
  • Gameweek 24: A chance of a very small Double Gameweek*.
  • Gameweek 25: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Leicester and Norwich)
  • Gameweek 26: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester and Norwich)
  • Gameweek 27: A possible Double Gameweek if teams with an outstanding match-up are eliminated by the FA Cup fifth-round stage. Four sides, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool, will have their weekend matches postponed because of the EFL Cup final, however.
  • Gameweek 28: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Liverpool, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 29: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 30: No chance of a Double Gameweek and a near-certain chance of it being a Blank Gameweek, as it will clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals.
  • Gameweek 33: A free midweek does allow for a Double Gameweek, although the weekend games do clash with the FA Cup semi-finals, too.
  • Gameweek 36: A free midweek allows for a Double Gameweek. This is likely to be the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

*Aston Villa v Burnley or Leeds v Aston Villa could be played on Saturday/Sunday February 5/6. That would mean either the Gameweek 24 deadline being brought forward a few days or the fixture being tagged onto the end of Gameweek 23.

      I think Foden, Grealish, Jesus all start.

        I think Mahrez will play both games pre AFCON departure- Pep has said before he doesn’t need too much recovery time as less muscle in legs.

        So front 3

        Mahrez Jesus Foden

        The question is whom to triple captain. I don't envy your dilemma....

    8. F4L

      I'll ask because I can't see it in the article, will Double GWs be announced before the GW 21 deadline?

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Be helpful, wouldn't it?

    9. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 5 Years
      20 days, 17 hours ago

      Who scores more:

      A) DDG, Cancelo, Alonso, KDB, Sterling, Ronaldo + 7pts

      B) Mendy, Rudiger, Dias, Foden, Jesus, Ronaldo(c)

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        It'll be tight. I'm going for B

        1. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
          • 5 Years
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          Think it all depends on the City line-up

      Thanks for that article, it’s cleared things up a lot - looking forward to the double game week. but feel like there is a massive chance for disappointment as you can easily imagine loading up on double players and 1 or even both the games get cancelled and that’s before rotation, fixtures etc

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Agreed. I'm all set to BB in DGW22, but a worried that it'll be a disappointment if games get cancelled. Thinking of going without any chips, or just TC, for the next 2 GWs atm

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          The break between 21 and 22 could be good, let the cases at clubs settle a little after Xmas - BB could still work out

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            20 days, 17 hours ago

            Could be. I am still being extra cautious with all these postponement, especially when some blanks are confirmed like Chelsea during CWC and also Liverpool and arsenal in 27

        2. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          How can one "be set for BB" if the schedule is unknown?

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            20 days, 17 hours ago

            Not 100% confirm but with the scrapping of FA Cup replay, I think we are almost certain to get DGW22 and I kinda like my current team, with some FTs planned, going into that GW

            1. Cruyff's Eleven
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              20 days, 17 hours ago

              Yeah, fair enough.

              Truth be told, one can hit BB any gameweek, can't you?

              GL brother.

              1. NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years
                20 days, 17 hours ago

                Indeed. Thanks bruh

      2. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        GW22 could be everyone playing twice bar City so may just roll with same team with a couple of tweaks.

        GW21 will be less teams with doubles & none of Ars, Spurs, Liv, City & Che will have have a DGW. May naturally have 4-5 doublers in the team still so not sure it’s worth FH to lump on the lesser likes with possible rotation & further postponements thrown into the mix.

        So may just use FTs & one or two hits to navigate these weeks.

        1. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          Will also BB if the stars align for GW22!

    11. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      20 days, 17 hours ago

      Zaha anyone?

      DGW21 most likely, face Norwich in GW24..

      Should be ashamed of himself already...

        I hate him nearly as much as Richarlison.
        Miserable sods.

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          At least zaha is the team's talisman. Richa is a fraud.

      2. Tonyawesome69

        Massive troll. There are better options

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          Correction. He will haul in DGW21 when people are avoiding him, because he IS a troll.

          People will never learn

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 3 Years
            20 days, 17 hours ago

            Good luck with him. Haven't brought him in the last 2 seasons and happy to continue going without.

      3. F4L

        not enough midfield slots to use/waste? one on Zaha

          Just considering him for the expected double

    12. Tcheco
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 17 hours ago

      Is it possible for a casual such as myself to finish within top 20k if my rank is 800k at the moment? All chips intact

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        nah, doubt it.

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Anything is possible. Need to consistently hit under 1M GW rank from now though. Maybe even less than that is required from 800k OR

      4. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Top 20k is top 0.3%

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        No chance

      6. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 17 hours ago

        Be less casual

          If you get lucky

        • Zilla
          • 4 Years

          Possible, unlikely tho.

          Will need to go non-template to stand a chance

          I am 400k but still have hopes of top 50-100k

            You could go from 400k to top 50-100k in literally 2-3 gameweeks. That’s not difficult at all

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              That's not answering OPs question tho, is it?

          It will be difficult, but not impossible.

          At GW18 in the 17-18 season I was ranked 532k. Finished 37k.

          More players, tools & more accessibility to the community now than then is a factor though.

          There were periods of yo-yoing, so if you keep nailing your picks and captains you can rise. It would likely need to be a sustained long good run

          Of course it is. A few decisions that goes your way and you've made up half of it in a few GWs.
          Need some luck, though.

        I fear there could be a raft of FA Cup 3rd round games postponed as the teams in the lower divisions have been far more affected then PL clubs. These games would be rearranged in the midweek slot of GW22 and if they involve PL teams this would scupper a lot of possible rearranged games.

          17 PL clubs will play teams from the lower divisions - 3 all PL games

          Leicester v Watford
          Man Utd v Aston Villa
          West Ham v Leeds

        Time for strategy discussion? If we don't get info about dgw:s this week, it leads to situation where we have to try manage the unknown.

        Ramsdale / DdG
        Alonso*, James*, TAA, Cancelo, Dalot Salah*, Bernardo*, Saka*, Foden(*), Jota Lacazette*, Dennis*, Broja
        3.1 mitb, 1 ft

        If I plan to play WC gw 21, I will simply do
        A) Salah + Laca to Son and Kane (-4)
        But if I plan to get my team intact without WC, I wil have to take hits, that would mean
        B) A + Che def to Reguillon (-8)

        I am in this mess one transfer behind because of missing deadline and not having sold Bilva for Son. The idea with selling Che def now is that if I am lucky, I might get the hit cost immediately back. What is everyone else plannin?

            No, I am not happy to have my Arsenal and Che players this week. If dgw:s are announced before deadline, I would be quite happy ditch players with sour fixtures and get dgw players in, if they have good fixtures also before and after dgw:s. Saka, Dennis, Alonso, James and Dennis + Bernardo could all go. Difficult to get rid of them in very short time.

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              20 days, 16 hours ago

              Based on experience, the towers can troll us and unleash DGW fixtures a minute after deadline.

              With that in mind, I think getting DGW suspects like Villa, Palace, Watford and West Ham is viable strategy, especially players from Burnley or say Spurs and Everton (Gray) since rearranged fixtures for them in gw21 or 22 look inevitable. I'd look to keep Liv players due to potential dgw22, but I'd consider selling my City (no double) or Chelsea (poor fix/blank incoming) assets in the near future.

                Yes, I agree with you. The problem is that my team is full of assets from teams that you mention as those to not to have and I also have zero players from those teams which to target. I have only 2 ft:s and perhaps 7-8 players to sell. That means 5-6 hits to get optimal tean and hit cost would be around 20-24 pts.

        4. CONNERS
          • 3 Years
          20 days, 17 hours ago

          Having the second WC and 2 free hits in hand makes it far easier.

          I'll have a fairly decent team for the upcoming DGWs using FT's and a hit or two.

          Will probably save the FHs for blanks and focus my future transfers on the DGWs and use TC/BB when the Covid situation has (hopefully) subsided.

          20 days, 16 hours ago

          I normally don't take hits in SGWs, but a -8 heading into back-to-back DGWs is not a big deal.

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            20 days, 16 hours ago

            I have had succesful -20 with big green arrow when Whu had dgw and good fixtures going forward. Lanzini alone got 13 pts, but the template mid one more. I think it might have been vs Brighton, who did well in the game. Got rid of all deadwood, got good team going forward. So yes dgw:s are opportunity. The issue is that -8 won't be enough to sort this team.

        If both Vardy and Madi are out vs Norwich, thoughts on the best Foxes asset? Thinking Lookman, he starts I imagine?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Tielemans. He will be on penalties if those 2 are out I would imagine. Nacho maybe? Lookman would be easier to fit in I suppose as most have Saka/Martinelli/Callagher to replace

          1. fricky_
              20 days, 17 hours ago

              Lookman and Tielemans. Believe both Daka and Nacho injured

                Are you sure about Nacho being injured? I think the early sub was a tactical change

            Lookman and Nacho are the ones to look at. Bit convinced with Tielemans but would be on pens if Vardy is out

            I've just noticed that 4 different Villa defenders have been 'King of the Gameweek' so far this season.

              Thank you, that's useful to know.

              Dang it, shouldn’t have sold Cash to Reguillon for a hit this GW. Also shouldn’t have captained Ronaldo last GW on a free hit. Oh, and the Salah thing.

              I hope dilly ding dilly dong stays true to his word and doesn't let Dennis leave

                  Nigerian FA e-mailed Watford later than the agreed time to request Watford release Dennis for AFCON.

                        Yes. Watford chairman gave them his account number to mind their cash.

                    You can see why he needs him but surely Dennis wouldn't play for Watford again if they blocked him. Not really sure why Ranieri even mentioned it.

              Anyone else playing WC this gw?

              I have already activated it to catch some price rises last night.

              Don't want to use my final FH and my team isn't set up well this week.

              I can make the most of TOT, WH, LEIC, MUTD fixture swing whilst adding a few dg21 players. Thus will be done by removing ARS, CHE, CITY assets since their GW22 fixture don't look too appealing.

                Too early.

                I used my first WC last week. Feels like a good time to potentially take advantage of doubles and fixtures but I don't think I'd use my 2nd WC yet with still so much uncertainty around.

              Is there a possibility they tag on an extra GW or 2 towards the end of the season to stage the postponed fixtures?

                Judging by FPL previous I highly doubt it

                With Nations League fixtures in June and WC in the middle of next season, there are extremely limited options to find dates for rearranged games hence the need to play games in any available slots

                My understanding is any games played after the start of game week 38 will be included in GW38. Very unliky to happen, though.

                Most likely taking a hit or two or even three. Too early for second wc for me

                So Brighton (GW24) and Arsenal (GW25) are going to blank due to Chelsea's involvement in CWC.

                Surely they can play some of the postponed games for Brighton or Arsenal here, or am I being wrong? If they do, it could be DGW for United (if they rearrange bha vs mun here) or Liverpool or Wolves vs Arsenal (depending on which game being moved to dgw22).

                Not seen anyone mention about this possibility.

                  There's still a full matchcard for gw24 and 25 with only the Chelsea fixture removed.

                  Brighton or Arsenal wouldn't be able to play other teams as they will already have a fixture booked in for those weeks

                    Aaah that's true. My bad

                    Unless some of the other teams got covid issues, so they can try to squeeze postponed game (if not settled yet, United can actually settle their outstanding games in 21+22 btw) there 😉 cheers for the insight

                  All 18 other teams are playing those GWs though, so they'd have no-one to play.

                My team value went up this week by about 2-3 million and I’m baffled why! Pretty much impossible from what can i tell. Anyone know a website where I can see what happened?

                    Should’ve said, currently 104.2, with 0.3 ITB.

                    Last I checked it was 101.6 with 0.3 ITB (had a newbie start XD)

                    Last week I rolled then went Foster, Martinelli, Laca > Lloris, Gray, ASM (this week) for a -4. No way that accounts for it :/
