FPL Double Gameweek 21 Review
Wow, that must have been the longest Gameweek ever!
My Gameweek was probably 'decent' going into the very last match of the Gameweek - the West Ham vs Norwich game, and then captain Jarrod Bowen (£6.7m) and teammate Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) transformed it into a very good week.
I ended on a very healthy looking 91 points (-4) prompting a nice green arrow from 59k to 39k overall rank.
Here is my performance in full:
Double Gameweek 22 Announced!
The Premier League has announced four rearranged fixtures, to be played within the midweek of this Gameweek 22:
Burnley vs Watford
Brighton vs Chelsea
Leicester vs Spurs
Brentford vs Manchester United
This now means a double gameweek for these eight teams
This leave the fixtures now looking like this:
In addition, I believe that the Chelsea vs Leicester match in Gameweek 27 may also end up being rearranged.
Here is fellow Hub contributor Ben Crellin's view of the schedule, which also shows the outstanding fixtures yet to be rearranged on the right hand side:
Here's my initial assessment of the doubling teams with my overall interest out of 10 (assuming no Free Hit at this stage):
Burnley - been in poor form all season, not that interested although decent looking double 3/10
Watford - been in poor form all season, although they score a few goals - not sure I'm that interested in adding more 5/10
Brighton - in reasonable form lately but not the easiest double and a blank approaching 5/10
Chelsea - good team although their form has dipped, not the best double and blanks approaching 2/10
Leicester - been in decent, if mixed form lately, especially in attack, reasonable double and OK(ish) fixtures after that 6/10
Spurs - decent recent form, OK fixtures (after Chelsea) 6/10
Brentford - not been in great form and not a great double 2/10
Manchester United - mixed form, reports of dressing room unrest, an OK double and reasonable fixtures after that 6/10
So, in summary, not a vintage looking Double Gameweek for me, with Leicester, Spurs and Manchester United looking the best of a fairly mediocre bunch of teams to target here. Not a Double Gameweek to rip your team up for, in my opinion.
My Most Wanted List - FPL Double Gameweek 22 Team Reveal
This is where I identify the FPL players who I am currently considering bringing into my team the most. I'll also highlight who might make way for them.
I update this list each week and this helps me formulate a mental shortlist of potential moves.
I will, of course, take the Double Gameweek into account this week.
Out-list: None (unless or until I need the money)
Sergio Reguilón (£5.4m) - a number of fixtures to catch up (including a double this week), attacking fullback in a much improved Spurs team. However he seems to have had some fitness issues lately, so that's one to watch
New: Emerson Royal (£5.0m) - a slightly cheaper option to Reguilón on the other side of the Spurs defence
Removed: Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) - in my team, and the double gameweek has gone
Out-list: Tino Livramento (£4.3m) - a difficult set of fixtures coming up and his returns have dipped lately, and possibly injured now
Phil Foden (£8.0m) - looks a threat whenever he plays
New: James Maddison (£6.9m) - been in sparking form lately, with 4 goals and 5 assists in his last six matches
Out-list: Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) - looked a bit peripheral at times lately, although he finally got some points last week, Heung-Min Son (£10.7m) - looks like he is injured for a couple of weeks, Billy Gilmour (£4.3m) who is now also injured for some time
Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m) - now that he's apparently not going to Afcon, the top FPL scoring forward with fixtures to catch up is firmly back on my radar
Removed: Michail Antonio (£7.9m) - in my team, and the double gameweek has gone
Current Squad - FPL Double Gameweek 22 Team Reveal
As it stands (and before any postponements or further rearrangements), this is how I'm currently set up heading into Double Gameweek 22, prior to making any transfers:
I only have two (possibly three) double gameweek players but some of the other players also have decent looking fixtures, for example I'm not sure I'd want to lose the likes of Diogo Jota (£8.2m), Jarrod Bowen (£6.7m) or Michail Antonio (£7.8m), all of whom could easily outscore some of the Double Gameweekers being talked about this week.
I understand that Ben Foster (£4.1m) may be back in contention (late assessment) so I'll probably give him a whirl this week in the hope of him getting the two games.
Transfer (and Chip) Plans - FPL Double Gameweek 22 Team Reveal
I will have one free transfer and £1.6m in the bank this week.
As is becoming the norm lately, my transfers are largely being dictated by who in my team is injured or otherwise unavailable.
The one that is probably reaching out to me the most is:
