Scout Picks

FPL Double Gameweek 22 Scout Picks features double-ups from four clubs

We have chosen our best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Double Gameweek 22 ahead of today’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

We line up in a 4-3-3 formation and, as ever, are limited to an £83.0m budget for our starting XI.

Our four substitutes, meanwhile, are always chosen from the budget crop of players.

We write this on Friday afternoon after the announcement that Burnley v Leicester City was postponed but before any other fixture news (the north London derby could be at risk, for example), so as ever, it’s worth keeping eyes and ears on any late developments as a ‘double’ could become a ‘single’ in a short space of time.

GOALKEEPER

The best FPL goalkeepers for a Double Gameweek 22 Free Hit

Despite several underwhelming performances from Manchester United in recent weeks, David de Gea (£5.2m) has continued to impress. Since Ralf Rangnick’s arrival in Gameweek 15, the Spaniard is averaging 5.2 points per match, whilst his +3.10 expected goals (xG) prevented total is better than any other keeper. Notably, his 87.5% save percentage is only trumped by Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Jose Sa (£5.2m), with his seven saves against Newcastle United a prime example of just how crucial he is to the Red Devils. Across the season, just four clean sheets in 19 appearances isn’t anything to shout about, but a Double Gameweek involving trips to Aston Villa and Brentford does give de Gea every chance to add to that tally.

      Well, I'm locked and loaded for "double" game week 22:

      Ramsdale
      TAA / Cancelo / Dawson
      Bruno (v) / Jota / Bowen / Gray / Gallagher
      Antonio / Ronaldo (c)

      Reluctantly pondering a -4 for Broja ---> Dennis, or Ramsdale ---> De Gea but not convinced it will definitely pay off.

      Anyone feel the need to twist my arm to take the hit?

        whos your sub GK because Arsenal game sounds off...

        1. AARON-1
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Foster who will not probably play. Minus 4 for De gea? I think he will only get one clean sheet out of two...

              i like De Gea for form and fixtures so good long term one

              Foster who will not probably play. Minus 4 for De gea? I think he will only get one clean sheet out of two...Negated by the hit

            Don't c and vc from same team, just in case...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Mount or Bruno? Don’t own Ronaldo FWIW.

          Captaining Kane

          1. WVA
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Same dilemma but own Ronaldo

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              Thanks. Would you go Bruno without Ronaldo? Or that not a factor?

              1. WVA
                • 5 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                Yep I'd go Bruno if I didn't have Ronaldo. I've got Ronaldo captain so no way he plays both :(!

        3. Cheeto__Bandito
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Get rid of Antonio or DCL for Ronaldo?

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

          This week will be the first time in a long while that I've put the armband on a goalkeeper.

              yes, hopefully he'll at least get both games and could rack up some points.

          so
          Doubles get cancelled.
          so

          so

            There's going to be one hell of a GW38 at this rate.

            1. TN
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 28 days ago

              is triple/quadruple GW a thing?!

        14. Bubbles1985
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Gallagher and Laca
          To
          Moura and Ronaldo

          Is this worth -8 or should I just get Ronaldo(c) for -4?
          Could also be Kane...

          1. Freshy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            think Ronny

            1. Bubbles1985
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              Just him for -4 seems fine?
              Leaves me with 5 DGWers

          Arteta’s comments today

          on the latest team news...

          We had concerns already before the match against Liverpool, and after the game we had some more issues. We haven't been able to assess the squad yet because we couldn't fly last night, so we just arrived to the training ground and all the boys are being looked after. So we don't know.

          Really puts me off bringing in Spurs players. What are your thoughts?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            There's a chance it gets cancelled?

            1. Freshy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              Chances are your chances are very good

            • 12 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            gonna be off IMO

          What's the deal with Regullion?

            Hopefully he plays as i already have him!

          • 9 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          A. ESR to Mount (c) (-4) and keep Salah
          B. No hit, play Keane (nor)

          Thanks

        18. jaywills
          • 6 Years

          Hi all.
          A) Saka to Mount (0)
          B) Saka and Broja -> Mount and King (-4)
          C) Broja to King (0)
          D) Roll and hope Saka and Broja play?
          Cheers and best of luck

        19. wulfrunian
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Usually,Mount is playing on the right side and Werner on the left side,right?

        20. Eastman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Bench boost??:
          Foster Keane Guehi Martinelli ??

        21. abaalan
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Why is arsenal spurs possibly off?
          Kane still Captain option?

        22. Gudjohnsen
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Lamptey or Cucurella?

        23. jonnybhoy
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Can someone tell me why to get Bruno ? Thinking greenwood is a better option?

          1. fusen
            • 10 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Poor hope. Just some distant memory of Bruno being a good FPL option and crossing fingers he will magically recover that in the next two games.

          2. Michelle Davin
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Just hoping,thats why im taking him..at least if cr7 scores he might get assists

            1. Eastman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              Has a double. Two week punt for me then back to Salah. Ronaldo may miss one game so may be on pens. Worth a go.

        24. Moose™
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Salah + Son to Bruno + Sterling?

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Nice

        25. willos_wanderers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          I have the following team at the moment:

          Fabianski
          Cancelo, TAA, Rudiger
          Gray, Bowen, Jota, Foden
          Watkins, Antonio, Ronaldo (c)

          Is it worth taking a free hit to get the following playing: (free hit team vs current in brackets)

          Fabianski -> De Gea
          Cancelo -> Cucurella
          Grey, Foden -> Mount, Moura
          Watkins, Antonio -> Dennis, Kane

          Plus free hit will give me a decent bench, not that that means much. If I don't free hit, bench would be rubbish.

          What do you guys think?

        26. Al Green Arrows
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          What are the odds of:

          1. Spurs vs Arsenal being postponed

          2. Ronaldo starting both games

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 28 days ago

            2. I think they will try other options so maybe less minutes for him 70% start

        27. Ha.
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Any advances on Varane as the best defender for the next few?

        28. C0YS
          • 6 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Would Antonio to King for -4 be worth it in light of the potential DGW derailment?

          A) Yes
          B) No

        29. robt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Trossard or Lamptey for -4?

          1. C0YS
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Not if you have a decent starting XI

        30. Mane Mane Mane
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Should I play Chris Wood, or just jump on and get Ronaldo. Not convinced on captaining him so don’t know if it’s a waste.

          (messaged before but site keeps crashing so didn’t see the answers)
