    Is this a fair guesstimate? Assuming FA cup semi-final clashes get rearranged to the midweek after, remaining in 34.

    34 doubles
    Palace: Whu (H), New (H)
    Newcastle: Man U (a), Palace (a)
    Man U: New (H), Sheffield (H)
    Sheffield: Burnley (H), Man U (a)

    37 doubles
    Arsenal: Man U (a), Chelsea (H)
    Chelsea: Forest (a), Arsenal (a)
    Brighton: Newc (a), City (H)
    City: Fulham (a), Brighton (a)
    Everton: Sheff (H), Liv (H)
    Liverpool: Villa (a), Everton (a)
    Wolves: Palace (H), Bou (H)

      Makes it nice and simple. Use FTs for DGW34 then go all out with WC and BB for DGW37. Hopefully Arsenal, Liverpool and City are still battling for the title

      TC gw28 then for those that saved the chip.

      Looks reasonable.

      Otherwise it's dgw34 and potentially another Manchester United trap

      ... like in gw1 which ultimately led to many having to play an early wildcard and remaining behind the curve.

      Take Pickford and his points for example.

      In fact Wolves and Everton look like the TC play if held until gw37.

      A whole load of ghost teams will wake up and hit a Hwang hatrrick or DCL brace and assist.

      Roughly. Wolves v Bournemouth is slightly more likely (59%) to go in 34 according to Crellin. Liverpool v Everton very likely (90%) to be played midweek 34 with Fulham forming the 2nd part of their 37 double. Same for City v BHA (80% for 34) making their 37 DGW ful tot

          Chelsea will almost certainly have a match rearranged for the midweek of 34 whatever happens, so very unlikely they will blank in 34.

            This week was a good week to take a hit for them…clean sheet vs Burnley and the upcoming double would surely pay the hit off..unfortunately I took one for Senesi so not only did I miss the clean sheet no I have to take another hit to fix it

    Apologies if this has been discussed previously, but is there really such a big disadvantage to using the WC this week (still have BB and FH to use for 34 / 37)? I know a lot of people are either FH 29 or taking hits 29 and then planning on a WC around week 31 - what's the advantage or doing that rather than doing it now?

    Current WC squad:
    Neto**
    Gabriel Doughty** Zabarnyi**
    Son Bowen Saka Foden
    Morris** Solanke** (c) Watkins
    Subs: Areola Luiz Udogie Reguilon

    I'm planning on using free transfers to bring in Salah and Haaland in weeks 30 and 31/32 respectively (have plenty of spare cash - 10.8m), will have 5 DGW players and 10-11 for GW29 (if I go for a spurs mid over Foden).

    Any thoughts are most welcome, thanks.

      I like it. I wilcarded in 24 for similar reasons and it worked out fine. Only 2 different players to your team there too. WC31 would be nice, but if it means saving the FH, I prefer WC27.

      I nearly did something similar a few weeks ago, and fortunately didn't. Two players of the 15 were surprisingly late unannounced injuries, and one went off injured early.
      I'm going to hopefully use it in the double game week in 37, and aim to get as many certainties as possible in the better teams. I guess whether to use it now depends on chip strategy. I'm free hitting on 29, have already used Triple Captain, but have my wildcard left.

      If KDB hits a haul then yes ...

      Unfortunately we don't know that but as an option to play King Kev it's certainly got merit and I am considering it.

      Plus Saliba. And a playing second goalkeeper with no transfer.

      I would have benefited from benched points in five of the last six weeks.

      It's definitely viable.

      The point above about late injuries can occur into a dgwBB following a previous wildcard too.

        Thanks all. Yeah, could do it in 37 too. FH 29 and the advantage of playing it now would be that I don’t have to think so much about the bench when wildcarding (easier to include Salah, Son, Haaland, Saka and Watkins). And no flags at the moment.

    Tempted to BB34 and FH37 if the fixtures do fall the way they are expected to.

    I dont think it will be possible to afford a decent bench for BB in 37 if Arsenal, City, Pool, Spurs all double the same week or we would be sacrificing premiums. Can fit in 11 from these 4 teams on FH37 and fill the bench with doublers on BB34 while keeping hold of the good SGW players.

    Lads, if chasing in your mini league who do you think are the best differentials between now and the end of season to make up ground? Harvertz for example seemed to be going under the radar until this point!

    That Senesi injury is incredibly annoying. Would you:

    A) Senesi > Zabarny -4
    B) play Brantwaithe vs man utd away

      In isolation, I’d save the hit, but may be worth it if you also wanted to play Senesi weeks 30-33 (unless there’s a positive update on his injury this week)

      A I think

      Solanke is surely a must-have this week and I don't think Maddison's current form warrants a hit to get him in.

        The hit would only be necessary to field 11 in 29 and have Solanke in 28.

      Perhaps it's the formatting I'm not quite understanding (or I'm just being a bit dumb), but get Solanke for 28 if you don't already have him, and make do with 10 in 29.

      These doubles? BB never works out so at least they offer a cheap bench, Onana, Palace defender, Schar, Garnacho?

      34 doubles
      Palace: Whu (H), New (H)

      I'd be happy with a single return from either Bowen or Maddison.
      The fact Foden starts this fixture with a return means I'd go for C.
      If you're preparing for 29 without a FH then the question becomes different.
