Fixtures

Double Gameweek 22 confirmed for eight teams

The revised fixture list for Double Gameweek 22 was announced by the Premier League on Thursday morning, with eight top-flight sides playing twice.

Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Chelsea, Leicester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Watford are the clubs who have two fixtures in the upcoming Gameweek.

There is a caveat: this proposed schedule is subject to change should any FA Cup third-round matches involving these teams or their second Double Gameweek 22 opponents be postponed this weekend. In the event of that happening, the outstanding cup ties would be played in this free midweek instead.

GAMEWEEK 22 DOUBLES

  • Brentford: Liverpool (a), Man Utd (h)
  • Brighton: Crystal Palace (h), Chelsea (h)
  • Burnley: Leicester (h), Watford (h)
  • Chelsea: Manchester City (a), Brighton (a)
  • Leicester: Burnley (a), Spurs (h)
  • Man Utd: Aston Villa (a), Brentford (a)
  • Spurs: Arsenal (h), Leicester (a)
  • Watford: Newcastle (a), Burnley (a)

There is a real mixed bag of ‘doubles’ here, with Brentford’s two games unappealing and Chelsea and Spurs having far from straightforward tests.

The best pairings are arguably those of Watford and Burnley, although which players from these two clubs beyond Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m) and/or Joshua King (£5.8m) represent attractive targets is another question.

Liverpool, West Ham United and even Everton, whose players some of us would have loaded up on ahead of Double Gameweek 21, have very decent ‘single’ Gameweeks, meanwhile, so as ever a balancing act would seem to be the way to go.

DATES AND TIMES OF THE ADDITIONAL FIXTURES

Tuesday 18 January

19:30 Burnley v Watford
20:00 Brighton v Chelsea

Wednesday 19 January

19:30 Leicester v Spurs
20:00 Brentford v Man Utd

    Current team (got both FH intact) DGW players in Caps
    0,1m in bank and 1 FT

    DE GEA
    Cancelo Trent REGUILON (Livramento BJohnson)
    SON Jota Bernardo Foden Bowen
    Antonio RONALDO (Gelhardt)

    Would you:

    A. FH
    B. Bernardo to Maddison
    C. B plus something else for a hit

    Thanks.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      B

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      B or C, C if Maddison is considered good choice for DGW and beyond

    3. fricky_
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        B

      • OD
          7 days, 17 hours ago

          With one free hit and blank gameweeks to come, I wouldn't free hit.

          I really like the Leicester mids for this gameweek so I would go for B

          I would also try and find the cash to upgrade Joe Gelhardt to a watford striker.

      • Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Ship one out for a DGW player:
        A. Foden
        B. Bernardo

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          B

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Easy B

        3. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Probably Bernardo? I got rid of Foden last week.

      • Rog.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        On the fence re free hit (all chips intact). What do you prefer:

        A) 5 DGW + TAA, Jota, DCL, Antonio, Coufal (all good fixtures) and either Raph or Dewsberry-Hall (-4) (No CR7 or Watford coverage)

        B) FH and go with the template

      • Bleh
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Watkins, Antonio > Dennis, Kane (-4) worth it? Would give me 6/11 DGW’ers.

        DDG*
        TAA, Cancelo, Dier*
        Son*, Jota, Bowen, Gray
        Ronaldo*, Kane*, Dennis*

        1. Rog.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Looks like a good move, Antonio could haul though

      • Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        The best chip to use in this short period (GWs 21 and 22) might turn out to be WC only

        Pre-GW21 template had lotsa Chelsea and Arsenal with Salah. Those can go now, with 2+ blank GWs confirmed in the near future

        WC can get some teams with good fixture runs *and* pending doubles, as DGWs will come in a drip feed over the next few GWs, wrapped around Europe midweeks (UEFA has given permission)

        Try not to hyperfocus on one DGW. It's DGW *season*, not the usual "2 big DGWs"

        The biggest one should be DGW36, but that's in the far future

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Or no chip, if you're already set

        2. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          May be a dumb question but why is DGW36 predicted to be so big?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          I disagree the WC is a waste at this time

      • Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        DDG*
        TAA Cancelo Dier*
        Son* Jota Bowen Gray
        Ronaldo* Antonio Broja

        (Gunn Keane Foden Livra)

        A) Broja ➡️ King/Dennis (No BB)

        Use BB Gunn, Broja & Livra ➡️ out for -8
        B) Bachmann, King & Emerson
        C) Sanchez, King & Davies
        D) Bachmann, Dennis & Davies

        Thoughts?

      • ShaunGoater123

        • 7 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Cant see the FH being worth it in this double and might even roll the transfer. Lineup would be as follows, thoughts?

        DDG
        Dalot / Royal / TAA / cancelo
        Jota / Son / Bowen / de bruyne
        Ronaldo / Toney

        Bachman / Broja / Ramsey / Williams

        1FT, 0.0ITB

        1. Sterling Archer
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Yes you are unlucky/lucky to have 3 united players!

          1. ShaunGoater123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            10 days, 10 hours ago

            Definitely! Cant see Dalot playing both, again probably a blessing

      • Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Trossard or lookman ? Can't afford more than 6.2. cheers

      • NateDog
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Have 4DGWers currently, think I'll just take a hit to field 6 + TAA, Bowen, DCL, Cash, and Cancelo, sound OK?

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Yep

      • Smokey_Lowkey
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Which move to prioritise for FT this week:

        A) Mbeumo - > Maddison (bench Gray)
        B) Livra - > Royal/Lamptey (bench Cancelo

      • Krafty Werks
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Is this ok for a -4 to avoid using free hit? Only 5 x doublers whereas free hit would have 10!! Which do you prefer? A or B? Thanks :

        A) No free hit :

        Pickford
        TAA / Cancelo / *Reguilon
        *Son / Foden / Bowen / Gray
        *Kane / *Ronaldo / *King

        Gunnarsson, Gordon, Johnson, Tierney

        B) free hit team with 10 x doubling starters :

        *De Gea
        TAA / *Cucurella / *Dalot
        *Son / *Mount / *Maddison / *Lookman
        *Kane / *Ronaldo / *Dennis

        Foster, *Trossard / *Lowton / Tsimikas

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          A after a hit ?

          1. Krafty Werks
            • 7 Years
            10 days, 10 hours ago

            Yes a -4 only but only 5 x doublers in comparison to B's 10 (and 2 x doublers as decent bench cover too!!)

      • T.Henry14
        • 8 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        DDG
        TAA, Cancelo, Coufal
        Son, Jota, Bowen, Gray
        Ronaldo, Antonio, Dennis

        (FosterX, Cash, D.Luiz, White)

        1FT - 4.3 ITB

        Save transfer here??

      • TeddiPonza
        • 11 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Which move is best:

        A. Bernardo to Maddison, play Foden
        B. Bernardo to Trossard, play Foden
        C. Bernardo to Trossard and Gelhardt to King for -4, bench Foden.

        Thanks.

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          10 days, 9 hours ago

          C with Maddison?

          1. TeddiPonza
            • 11 Years

            Can´t afford

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Any chance the number of DGW22 fixtures could be increased or is that it?

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 9 hours ago

          I believe that's it. They could have announced more fixtures had they planned to have them imo.

      • Jimmy Boy
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Would you bench boost this? Can get to it with a -8 and has seven dgwers. Not expecting Dalot to play both of his fixtures but if he plays at least one I think this is one of the few times this season I'll hopefully have a playing fifteen.

        Ederson
        Robertson - Cancelo - Bavies*
        Son* - Jota - Foden - Gallagher
        Ronaldo* - Dennis* - King*

        Kepa - Saka - Tomiyasu - Dalot*

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          I'll probably wildcard when Salah comes back from AFCON so not too bothered about messing with my team structure.

      • Krafty Werks
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        If you have worked out that your prospective Free Hit team (which has twice as many doublers) is likely going to be worth approx 20 points more than your regular side without? Then would you Free hit or save the chip? Thoughts?

      • TeddiPonza
        • 11 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Better 2 week punt before Salah comes back:

        Trossard (CRY CHE lei)
        Maddison (bur TOT BRI)

        Thanks

        1. Krafty Werks
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Madds

        2. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Maddison.

        3. Finding Timo

      • akhilrajau
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 9 hours ago

        De gea, Bachmann
        TAA, Cash, Cancelo, White, Davies
        Jota, Son, Bowen, Maddison, Douglas Luiz
        Antonio, CR7, King
        Bank: 1.7m, FT: 1

        Any suggestions to include 2 double game players (-4 hit). Thinking dennis + any def . Please suggest

        Don't feel the need to FH but with 2 in my pocket, WC & BB when?

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 8 hours ago

          Depends on your current team. WC probably good idea, but not certain whether to BB week after that.

      • Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 8 hours ago

        I had planned to BB, but I have second thoughts now. No dgw:s for Avl or Eve. I would have to use my ft to sell Cash and I doubt it's worth it. Looks like a save with this bench?

        gk Sanchez vs CP + Che
        Cancelo vc Che
        Gray vs Nor
        Cash vs MU

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 8 hours ago

          BB would mean Cash to Cucurella / Lamptey, but I doubt it's sound long term transfer.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year

          Davies as could get an assist even if no cleansheets

      • OD
          7 days, 17 hours ago

          My team looks like this (I am 21k in the world):

          Sa (Carson)

          Rudiger TAA Mitchell Cash (Cancelo)

          Bowen Jota Saka (Bernardo, J.Ramsey)

          Ronaldo (C) Antonio Calvert-Lewin

          With 1.3m in the bank and one free transfer, I am looking to turn Carson into DDG.

          Which of the following moves should I do for a hit:

          A. Mitchell to Lamptey
          B. Antonio to King
