FPL Double Gameweek 23 Scout Picks: Watford double-up and De Bruyne selection

We have chosen our best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Double Gameweek 23 ahead of today’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

We line up in a 3-4-3 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.

GOALKEEPER

 1

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Jose Sa (£5.2m) is our chosen goalkeeper in Double Gameweek 23, ahead of a favourable away fixture at Brentford. The 29-year-old is FPL’s highest-scoring keeper and this week he’ll be up against a Bees’ side struggling for goals, with just four across their last six matches. Bruno Lage’s rearguard have been in excellent form in recent weeks, with Sa’s nine saves against Southampton last time out a prime example of just how crucial he is for Wolves.

DEFENDERS

The best FPL defenders for a Gameweek 4 Wildcard 5

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.4m) sits second overall for FPL points, with last weekend’s assist against Brentford making him the first defender in Premier League history to register 10 or more in three separate seasons. The England full-back has produced either a goal, assist or clean sheet in 14 of his 19 appearances in 2021/22, and now takes on a Crystal Palace side that has conceded 75 crosses from their left-flank across their last six matches, compared to just 48 on the right.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah, madness. I only chucked in Kane as option because the RMT tool scores him lower than Alonso and DCL this week!

    As someone who has already used their free transfer and has Dennis captain, what would you do?

    A) Guaita > Foster (-4) (I have De Gea also)
    B) Toney > King (-4)
    C) Leave it

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I'm considering Greenwood over Foden (on WC).
    Fixtures are amazing - started the last 4 games (though subbed off in all four).
    Is this silly?

    I don't want Bruno - too expensive, but would like some MU attacker for upcoming fixtures.

    Will have money itb to move him to Salah if it fails (it's him or Jota)

    1. Superninteno Chalmers
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      nothing to indicate greenwood as a good fantasy asset right now. Too many other good options.

  6. Legohair
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    G2G???
    Ramsdale
    TAA-Cancelo-Thomas
    Bruno-Jota-Maddison-Bowen
    Ronaldo-Antonio-Dennis(c)

    Sanchez,Gray,Dalot, Reguilon
    I could play Dalot before Thomas but then i have Antonio&Bowen in my team too...i could also bring King in my team by selling Antonio,or save and roll tranfer??

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Just roll

  7. Weeb Kakashi
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Guaita Bachmann.

    Neither look like starting. Bachmann> Sanchez?

    Sanchez has dgw in 26 and rotates well with Guaita(if he is first choice).

    Thoughts?

    A) Antonio to King for double up with Dennis (probably getting Watkins for one of them very soon)
    B) Livramento to Lowton since lot of DGW, can be 3rd on bench most weeks unless DGW. Alonso would be on bench this week.
    C) Livramento to Digne, looking more long term

    Think Im on A since I wanna get points right now, and its Norwich and Burnley! Not just average fixture games!

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Go with your gut, A will get most points imminently

      1. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Thx, thats what I needed to hear, gut over dull-ness 🙂

    FOSTER
    Cancelo TAA Rudiger
    Fernandes Jota Gray Bowen Saka
    KING (C) Antonio

    DDG Pukki Dawson Libra

    Should I save my free transfer or do pukki to Dennis and bench Antonio. Any other ideas? Up around 15k after a good week last week. Cheers

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Pukki to Dennis makes sense

      1. Bob.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah will make the pain of Dennis outscoring King less painful memories if he does

  10. tabby98
    • 6 Years

    Raphinha or Coutinho?

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Raphinha

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Although I have both on WC

    3. Same Old
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Raph

  11. Mirkatldn
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Start one…Coady, Watkins, Coutinho or Bowen?

    1. PScholes18
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Watkins or Bowen.

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Bowen. Why did you buy Coutinho this week, or was it last and you got his points? 🙂

  12. PScholes18
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Lamptey, Gray and Ronaldo to Digne, KdB and Dennis for minus 8?
    Wanted Watkins, but no DGW.
    Will give me this team:
    DDG
    Digne - TAA - Dias
    Bruno - KdB - Jota - Bowen
    King - Dennis - Antonio
    Steele, Gallagher, Coufal, Manquillo

    Next week, get Salah back in.

  13. Partey McFly
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Ronaldo could punish - KDB could explode...... I think I'll be saving my free transfer......I may change my mind at 18:29
