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
      7 months, 6 days ago

      B

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

    3. fricky_
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      B

    4. OD
        7 months, 4 days 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.

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        B

      2. Rog.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Easy B

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Probably Bernardo? I got rid of Foden last week.

    6. Rog.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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

    7. Bleh
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Looks like a good move, Antonio could haul though

    8. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Or no chip, if you're already set

      2. Fish up a tree
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

      3. The Polymath
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        I disagree the WC is a waste at this time

    9. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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?

    10. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

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

    11. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

    12. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Yep

    13. Smokey_Lowkey
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Which move to prioritise for FT this week:

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

    14. Krafty Werks
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        A after a hit ?

        1. Krafty Werks
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 6 days 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!!)

    15. T.Henry14
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

      (FosterX, Cash, D.Luiz, White)

      1FT - 4.3 ITB

      Save transfer here??

    16. TeddiPonza
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        C with Maddison?

        1. TeddiPonza
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Can´t afford

    17. The Polymath
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Baps hunter
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

    18. Jimmy Boy
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

    19. Krafty Werks
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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?

    20. TeddiPonza
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Better 2 week punt before Salah comes back:

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

      Thanks

      1. Krafty Werks

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years

        Maddison.

      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

    22. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Baps hunter
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

    23. Baps hunter
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days 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
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

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

    24. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Tielemans with pens could a nice punt for someone shopping around that budget

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Yeh agree good shout although I can afford Maddy

    25. Willmissudimitrypayet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Who to sell to get Maddison?

      Martinelli, Gray, Bowen or Jota?

      1. sulldaddy
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Martinelli for sure

      2. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year

      Ramsdale
      TAA Cancelo Davies
      Son Mount Silva Jota Bowen
      Antonio King

      Foster Livramento Coufal Watkins

      1FT 3.5 ITB (to bring back Salah after ACON)

      A. Silva to Madison
      B. FH (still have both left
      C. Other

    27. W.Cogitations
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Which one should I play in GW22 out of Tierney (TOT), Martinelli (TOT), Davies (ARS, LEI)?

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Davies as could get an assist even if no cleansheets

    28. OD
        7 months, 4 days 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
