FPL

When are the Blank Gameweeks in FPL?

There’s plenty of Double Gameweek talk within the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) community at present, following the confirmation that four teams will play twice in Gameweek 20.

Arsenal and Manchester City also have two fixtures in Gameweek 23, while there’s a chance that further ‘doubles’ could be announced for Gameweeks 21 and/or 22.

The yin to the yang are the Blank Gameweeks.

In theory, these should be slightly easier to navigate: while we’re sometimes given very little notice about an upcoming Double Gameweek (like the imminent one), Blank Gameweeks are usually known about in advance – although Covid and royal deaths have made this not the case in recent years.

There are currently three (almost certain) Blank Gameweeks for us FPL managers to juggle: Gameweeks 25, 28 and 32.

Here we take a closer look at the teams already guaranteed a fixture, who could miss out and when we’ll know more information about them.

BLANK GAMEWEEK 25

  • What it clashes with: The EFL Cup final.
  • Maximum blanks: Two fixtures (four teams).
  • When we will know who blanks: After the EFL Cup semi-finals have been contested in the midweek before Gameweek 22.
  • Any other information: The midweek after Gameweek 25 could yet house some outstanding fixtures, should two teams with an affected match not still be in the FA Cup by the fifth round.

Fulham v WolvesOn
Newcastle v BrightonPossible blankIf Newcastle reach the EFL Cup final
Everton v Aston VillaOn
Leeds v SouthamptonPossible blankIf Southampton reach the EFL Cup final
Leicester v ArsenalOn
West Ham v Nottm ForestPossible blankIf Nottm Forest reach the EFL Cup final
Bournemouth v Man CityOn
Crystal Palace v LiverpoolOn
Man Utd v BrentfordPossible blankIf Man Utd reach the EFL Cup final
Spurs v ChelseaOn

Don’t get alarmed by the four ‘possible blank’ entries above, as there’ll only be a maximum of two fixtures being postponed (ie four teams blanking) in Gameweek 25.

Manchester City’s shock EFL Cup quarter-final elimination at the hands of Southampton means that their Gameweek 25 match against Bournemouth will go ahead – weather/Covid-permitting, of course.

Cup exits for Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers also mean that their respective Gameweek 25 fixtures against Arsenal and Fulham will proceed as planned.

All in all, this Blank Gameweek looks much easier to navigate than originally feared with well-owned FPL assets like Erling Haaland (£12.2m), Kevin De Bruyne (£12.5m), Gabriel Martinelli (£6.8m), Martin Odegaard (£6.7m), Andreas Pereira (£4.6m) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (£7.2m) all now playable.

Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur were already in the clear with regard to Gameweek 25.

So who are the teams we have to be concerned about? Manchester United and Newcastle United are the bookies’ favourites to win their EFL Cup semi-finals, so their Gameweek 25 league matches against Brentford and Brighton and Hove Albion look most at risk of being postponed.

We at least get four Gameweeks-worth of free transfers to help negotiate the blanks once the two finalists are known ahead of Gameweek 22 but many of us will now be able to easily negotiate Gameweek 25 without the use of a chip and potentially without hits, too.


BLANK GAMEWEEK 28

  • What it clashes with: The FA Cup quarter-finals.
  • Maximum blanks: Seven fixtures (14 teams).
  • When we will know who blanks: After the FA Cup fifth-round ties have been contested in the midweek before Gameweek 26. The results of the FA Cup fourth round, which takes place before Gameweek 22, should also give us a better picture.
  • Any other information: An international break follows Gameweek 28, so there is no chance that any fixtures will be pushed back into the subsequent midweek.
GW28 Premier League fixtureStatusA blank will happen if the following happens:
Arsenal v Crystal PalacePossible blankIf Arsenal reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Aston Villa v BournemouthOn
Brentford v LeicesterPossible blankIf Leicester reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Brighton v Man UtdPossible blankIf Brighton and/or Man Utd reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Chelsea v EvertonOn
Liverpool v FulhamPossible blankIf Liverpool and/or Fulham reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Man City v West HamPossible blankIf Man City and/or West Ham reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Nottm Forest v NewcastleOn
Southampton v SpursPossible blankIf Southampton and/or Spurs reach the FA Cup quarter-finals
Wolves v LeedsPossible blankIf Leeds reach the FA Cup quarter-finals

This Gameweek might also be not impossible to manage, even though there’ll be more blanks.

There’ll be a maximum of seven postponements but in all likelihood and based on past clashes with the FA Cup quarter-finals, the number will be more in the 4-6 region.

We’ve already got Newcastle United definitely in action against Nottingham Forest, so a triple-up on the Geordies looks appealing (once a possible Gameweek 25 is out of the way).

The Gameweek could get even easier to manage if Arsenal are out of the FA Cup by the quarter-final stage, and there’s a good chance of that as they are set to face Manchester City at the Etihad in round four.

Getting a full XI out without a Free Hit might still prove problematic but what might affect your decision is a possible Wildcard window immediately afterwards. Not only does an international break follow but a significant-sized Double Gameweek 29 could be on the cards, too, so we will likely want to freshen our squads for that.

‘Dead-ending’ your squad into Gameweek 28 is one approach, then, as you could in one fell swoop bring back all the players you’ve offloaded in preparation for the doubles. A Wildcard in Gameweek 29 wouldn’t allow for a Bench Boost in the same week, it should be said.


BLANK GAMEWEEK 32

What it clashes with: The FA Cup semi-finals.
Maximum blanks: Four fixtures (eight teams).
When we will know who blanks: After the FA Cup quarter-finals have been contested on the same weekend of Gameweek 28.
Any other information: A midweek round of Premier League fixtures (Gameweek 33) follows Gameweek 32, so there is no chance that any fixtures will be pushed back into the subsequent midweek.

GW32 Premier League fixtureStatusA blank will happen if the following happens:
Arsenal v SouthamptonPossible blankIf Arsenal and/or Southampton reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Bournemouth v West HamPossible blankIf West Ham reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Brentford v Aston VillaOn
Brighton v Man CityPossible blankIf Brighton and/or Man City reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Crystal Palace v EvertonOn
Fulham v LeedsPossible blankIf Fulham and/or Leeds reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Leicester v WolvesPossible blankIf Leicester and/or Wolves reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Liverpool v Nottm ForestPossible blankIf Liverpool reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Man Utd v ChelseaPossible blankIf Man Utd reach the FA Cup semi-finals
Newcastle v SpursPossible blankIf Spurs reach the FA Cup semi-finals

We won’t spend too much time dwelling on this Blank Gameweek, which is over three months away and may fall for many after the deployment of a Wildcard.

Anything from zero to four blanks are possible.

Two fixtures are confirmed as being definitely on already, however.

Aston Villa and Everton are so far the only two sides who avoid a blank in Gameweeks 25, 28 and 32.

    A) Cancelo -> Stones

          I wouldn't make those moves.

    Has anyone got some info on the Tony situation? Would love to be able get him on this week but unsure what’s going on with the ban and injury? Tia

    Cheers Neale. Haven't actually given any thought to the blanks yet so this is really helpful. Hope you had a good weekend off

    1. Skonto Rigga

      Thanks, pal! A weekend of toddler birthday parties, so dealing with excrement of a different kind to what my FPL team has been serving up 😀

      Hopefully not too waffley an article. Hopefully it'll become a bit clearer after the midweek EFL Cup ties, too.

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        😆

        No the format is perfect for me. I like having the full list of potential impacts to refer back to, and also got a good sense of the macro (definitely keeping in mind the deadend 28, WC29 strategy)

  6. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Prem sides dropping like dominos is the last thing a 'non-casual' manager needs. These saved chips need to pay off...

  7. KeanosMagic
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Can't see a way of getting to Kane without losing Salah, but don't really want to as Salah could do well against Brighton (?), and potential double on the way:

    Ederson (Iversen)
    Trippier Shaw Dalot (Botman Bueno)
    KDB Salah Rashford Odegard Almiron
    Haaland Mitro (Greenwood)

    2m itb

    Just ignore Kane?

    1. AARON-1
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Given the likely Salah double and the fact that Kane has the hardest double in the league against the top two teams (although it would be harder if both matches were away), I'd stick with Salah. That is what I am doing

    2. Drumandbaines123
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Could you do Odegaard to Mitoma then Mitro to Kane? Or if not Mitoma then perhaps Summerville?

      Or yeah you could just ignore Kane if you really wanted to keep Odegaard and didn't fancy ripping the team up. Your call but risky going without Kane this week IMO despite the 4 yellows.

    I know nobody can read Pep’s mind, but what exactly did Cancelo do to fall out of favour so fast?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Hasn’t been the same player since the start of the season as evidence by his numbers, just hasn’t be getting in the same positions or causing anywhere near the appropriate amount of havoc

      1. FCHaalandaise
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Not to mention he is a liability defending

        Fouls, penalties and red cards (I think he was sent off)

      1. KDB4PREZ
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        This explains it I guess?…

        1. pingissimus
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          But there again he got the next game against Brentford.

          Pep does have history in sidelining previously core options - Bilva and Laporte come to mind - so shock should perhaps be moderated. He now has options and will use them.

          Easy to forget that we’ve been living in a paradise where Pep had little choice but to play him week in week out.

      2. FCHaalandaise
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 months ago

        There It is

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years

      Stopped smiling and giving off good vibes in training

  9. dshv
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Kepa ward
    Trippier Shaw Cucurella Patterson bueno
    Kdb Almiron Martinelli Rashford Andreas
    Kane Darwin Haaland

    0.9 itb 2FT, actually like my team just give me some advices please

    1. AARON-1
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I am upgrading Patterson to Botman as my first bench player and rolling the other free transfer into GW21.
      A bit dull, perhaps, but that's my move for this week.

      1. Rojo's Modern Life
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Rolling a free transfer in a dgw?! Crazy

  10. lilmessipran
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Best Cancelo replacement? Want to get rid of him because he is a mins risk just not sure who to bring in, no one stands out really

    1. Kellz86
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Which defenders do you already have?

    2. Skogen89
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Keep this gw

  11. Lionel Fellaini
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Doherty or Perisic?

    1. AARON-1
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Honestly - neither. Spurs will concede in both games in this double and face Man City again very soon.

      1. Lionel Fellaini
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks for the reply. I was looking for them to get points at the other end of the field

        1. Lionel Fellaini
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I’ve got 2FT’s Shaw and Trippier. I could play Castagne or White. But I’ve also got Patterson

        2. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Even if you get lucky with an assist you're probably still looking at something like 6pts total. CS + A + bonus haul is a bit far-fetched with these fixtures

          1. Lionel Fellaini
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Might double up with Dalot and Shaw then and move Castagne next week

  12. Salarrivederci
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Cancelo + Havertz -> Lewis + Kane (-4)?

    Ward
    Trippier - Shaw - Lewis
    Salah - KDB - Rashford - Bailey
    Haaland - Kane - Martial

    Iversen, Bueno, Andreas, Patterson

    1. Skogen89
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Why get rid of cancelo? Just go with him

      1. King Prawn
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Why would you keep him in? He’s getting benched every week and he’s shipping value, surely better to get a nailed defender who’s getting points

  13. thepancakeman123
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    What's the better move?

    A) Cancelo + Darwin > Stones + Kane
    B) Cancelo + Mitrovic > Lewis + Kane

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A

  14. Garth Marenghi
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Shaw will go down injured within the next 5 gameweeks.
    a) yes
    b) no

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A

      1. Garth Marenghi
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yeah kinda figured

    2. Tcheco
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      B. Set & forget given his form & United’s upcoming fixtures

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Silly question. We have FTs for that if it happens

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I mean you can say this about literally any player in FPL

    5. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Dumb question. No way of knowing this for anyone.

    6. MissouriMarten
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No offence, but what a pointless question!

      1. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Track record of injury is not the best though.

  15. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Thoughs with 2 free transfers, lads?

    Ramsdale / Ward
    Cancelo, Trippier, Shaw / Castagne, Patterson
    Salah, Saka, Rashford, Martinelli, Almirón
    Haaland, Kane / Greenwood

    What wold you do here? Rams to DDG? Downgrade Cancelo and upgrade somehwere else? Patterson to Lewis?

    1. Skogen89
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Salah>kdb

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Hmm you're in pretty good shape already since you could just play Castagne over Cancelo. With 2 FTs I think I'd just replace Cancelo though. Dalot could be a nice option if Utd double again in 22, although you'd have to use another transfer to avoid playing a defender at Arsenal next week. Schär/Botman could also work. Or Cancelo - Dalot this week & Patterson - Schär next week maybe?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        This is much appreciated! Many thanks!

  16. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Anything worth a transfer here or just save?

    Kepa
    Shaw*, Trippier, Botman
    KDB*, Rashford*, Odegaard, Martinelli
    Haaland*, Kane*, Darwin

    Ward, Gabriel, Andreas, Patterson

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Strengthen bench, Patterson out for a while.

      Any funds to upgrade Kepa?

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Only got £0.1m in the bank so not much scope for upgrades. Could do Patterson to Bueno or Lewis.

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      hold

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers

    3. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Needs city defence. They're strong lately

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Would mean taking Gabriel/Shaw out, think I prefer them over City defender who isn't nailed.

    4. King Prawn
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I’d hold

  17. Skogen89
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Darwin and mitro > kane and martial? For free

  18. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Keep and play Cucu or take a hit to get one of Shaw/Dalot/Stones/Ake?

    Already gonna do Cancelo to Shaw/Dalot this week.

    1. Skogen89
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Wouldt get rid of cancelo this gw

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Doing that for sure, the question is, is removing Cucu worth a hit this week?

        1. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Why sell a dgw player?

          1. Atimis
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            May not play

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I did Cucu > Dalot & Justin > Botman seems no brainer

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I will for sure take a hit to get rid of Mitro and Cancelo to Kane and Shaw/Dalot - trying to figure out whether to paly Cucu, have Kepa, or remove him for additional hit.

  19. asquishypotato
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    My brain has gone, did I imagine that we were given a second free hit chip to used following the week of the queens death?

    Theoretically, one could be used in early blank, dead end middle blank, free hit final blank?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No I don't think so. I think we just got the FTs we made that week refunded

      1. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I don’t think that happened either, I transferred out a player because I had two free and we were getting a transfer that week anyway.

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Hmm yeah I was away that week & not quite as in the loop with FPL as I usually am. Maybe someone else can clarify

          1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Think if anyone used WC or FH it was reinstated. Squishy I think you're thinking of us getting the extra FH last season when we had a massive heap of (very late at times) postponements due to covid

            1. asquishypotato
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 year, 4 months ago

              Ta for that, that’s why I remembered a second free hit!

            • 10 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            No worries, thanks for the help anyway, turns out I was in past sense as well

    2. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Extra FT was added. Wildcards rolled over to the second week.

  20. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Is there now any point of Kepa and CHE defence. They are a shambles and James/Chilwell will need ages to get up to speed. Almost tempted to use the keeper spot for the best doubler transfer for a while...

    1. Black Knights

      Yeah i've decided on this approach. Kepa to Emerson, then whoever next, then opssibly even back to Ederson for their DGW23.

        Might even go De Gea this week to save the pennies

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)

      I'll hold onto Kepa until I wildcard most likely, only exception may be if Newcastle get a double sooner than that and I'll get Pope. Too much else going on to use an FT on that unless I feel like it's almost guaranteed to pay off well within a couple of games

      1. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy

        My thoughts with Pope are you may as well get a cheapie def to go with Trippier. Ederson I understand people getting due to City rotation at the back and most don't want a double of say Ramsdale/White or De Gea/Shaw as there are good attacking options at these clubs.

      I know Chelsea are pretty bad, but rotation with Ward is:

      ful, CRY, BRI, FUL, whu, SOU.

      I think I'll save FTs to rotate DGW options. Also, I'll have triple City and Newcastle anyway, so only other keeper I'd be interested in is Raya.

      Rubbish as Kepa and Chelsea defence has been he’s still effectively keeping pace with Ederson.

      You’d imagine City will improve more but part of my living and learning experience is that Ederson is almost never a good option.

    Kepa
    Cancelo, Trippier, Shaw
    Rashford, Salah, Odegaard, Saka
    Haaland, Wilson, Mitro

    (Ward, Castagne, Bueno, Andreas)

    - Thinking Cancelo to Dalot/Stones.
    - Worth a hit to change Mitro to Darwin for a punt?

      Selling a dgw defender to double up on another? Big waste of a ft

    2. mdm
      • 12 Years

      Salah to KDB

  22. jimmy.floyd

    Is Mitrovic suspended for the Chelsea game?

      yes

      I'm really looking forward to the "casuals" reaction when they see his name isn't on the teamsheet.

        You think casuals come here?

    Much appreciated article, hadn't given anything but the smaeat thought to blanks yet and had no idea where they would fall. Will certainly have to keep a little more in mind looking at GW25 regarding any transfers after this week. Not really sure what I'll do if Liverpool get a double for GW21, hokey cokey isn't something I ever really do but KDB to Salah back to KDB for the next DGW then back to Salah if it looks like City will hit the Carabao final is certainly an option. Could hold onto Nunez instead but hard to avoid Kane right now

    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)

      *smallest

      Kane to Darwin for me just in time for his explosion haha

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I could probably move Mitrovic to get him back instead but I'm not sure how keen I'd be on losing him. Then again Chelsea v Liverpool can be chaotic at times and the way the two sides are playing that's fairly likely, Nunez is chaos defined so perhaps going back to him may pay off

      The (potential) Liverpool double is a bit of a headache for me too. Was fairly set on Darwin out for Kane this week (or if not, Wilson). KDB - Salah is perfectly viable but if ARS/BHA double I'd probably rather have a 2nd mid from one of them. Tricky game to predict as well, with Chelsea's lacklustre attack meeting Pool's shaky defence. Kind of feel like Robbo might be the one to haul if he plays both & manages 1 CS

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I'm taking -8 this week and bringing in 2 Brighton mids so I'm not too bad there. Wouldn't be adverse to taking another hit next week for Odegaard possibly although I'm not sure where he'd go

  24. TeddiPonza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which option next week:

    A. Kane, Bueno and Mahrez (-4)
    B. Salah, Shaw and Mitrovic

    Thanks

    What is holding PL back in announcing DGW21 fixtures?

      I guess league cup games this week

  26. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Think Isak is going to become a real option soon...

  27. Pariße

    Cancelo & Trossard to Stones & Kulusevski?

    Triple City would be posaible with Salah to KDB, but for a hit the foxtures aren’t so kind.

    1. Pegboy
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'd avoid Kulu for the moment. Doubt he'll start both games back from injury.

  28. dshv

    Patterson to lewis(start him over cucurella)

    Kepa to DDG ??

  29. tim_oriordan
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Would you roll a transfer here or should I be looking to get Kane in? I have 1.2m itb

    Kepa
    Trippier, Cancelo, Shaw
    KDB, Mount, Rashford, Almiron
    Haaland, Darwin, Mitrovic

    Ward, Andreas, Bueno, Patterson
