Double gameweeks 24, 25, 26 and 27 and blank 29
Double gameweek 24 and 25 were confirmed. Manchester CIty, Everton, Burnley and Fulham will have double in GW24 and Leeds and Southampton have double in GW25.
Then we will probably get even “bigger” double gameweek in GW26 and possible another smaller double gameweek in GW27 (another for Man City).
And then big blank in GW29.
Our advise for this period is: if you have two free transfers, use one to bring in double gameweek 24 player (Man City attacker or Burnley defender/goalkeeper) and role the other transfer.
If you have just one transfer, role it to another gameweek in case there are some injuries. Than you can react to that with 2 free tranfers next week and bring in two double gameweek players.
In case you do not have your free hit available (just as I do not) it will be very difficult for you to navigate through this period if you do not plan properly.
So, plan properly, and you will not have to take unnecessary hits during this hectic period that could make or break your season.
Have your eyes open, perceive things from broad perspective and avoid emotional decisions.
Let’s move to the captaincy.
Captain picks for GW 23
With Liverpool facing Manchester City in GW23, a lot of our regular captain picks cancel each other out.
We see only two other standout fixtures for captaincy:
- Manchester United vs. Everton
- Tottenham vs. WBA
If you are going to captain Manchester United player, it should probably be their talisman Bruno Fernandes.
If you want to play it a bit riskier, you can look at Markus Rashford or Antony Martial, but our main captain pick form Man United is the most scoring FPL player Bruno Fernandes.
Although Spurs are not in great form, we still favor Son Heung Min to do well against the worst defense in the Premier League.
West Bromwich is still last in the table for goals conceded and xG conceded.
Harry Kane is unlikely to return, so Son will have to do well without assists from his creative teammate.
But that is just a slight concern and we are picking Son Heung Min as our number one captain pick.
