Key double gameweek players
I think you should have 4 or 5 double gameweek players in your FPL team in GW24. If you had less than 4, it would limit the upside point potential of your team.
If you had more than 5, I think it would be overoptimizing, because it would require many players from Burnley, Everton and Fulham – players from these teams could turn into dead weight for your FPL team very next gameweek.
And you do not want that.
You need to have double gameweek players in your FPL team in GW24, but you also have to think about following gameweeks as well.
So, which 4-5 double gameweek players we recommend for GW24? Well, 3 players from Manchester City are no brainer.
Probably two defenders (Dias and Stones, Dias and Cancelo, Dias and Ederson).
Plus one attacking player who has potential to play at least 120 minutes over these two games.
Gundogan or Sterling are our choices, and we favor the later from these two.
We think your 4th double gameweek player should be a Burnley defender or goalkeeper.
If you have Martinez in your team, you probably do not want to transfer him out for Nick Pope, so look at Tarkowski or Ben Mee, who are capable of scoring a goal from standard situations.
If the budget is an issue, Lowton for 4.5 million could be your man – you could easily bench him after the double in following gameweeks.
And your 5th double gameweek players should be back in form Everton forward Calvert-Lewin, or Everton defender Lucas Digne.
Everton have tough fixtures after the DGW24, so you do not want too many of their players for that run and one is enough.
We would avoid Fulham players completely unless you already have some of their players in your team.
So, our main advice is, do not forget to look how your team will look like in following gameweeks when bringing in double gameweek players.
Do not weaken your FPL squad by overloading on Burnley, Everton or Fulham players just because they play twice.
Best captain pick for DGW 24
In order to maximize the point potential of your FPL squad in DGW24, you should captain a double gameweek player.
There are few very good captain options in GW24. Nick Pope is one of them.
Burnley goalkeeper is a bonus point magnet, so he will likely need just one clean sheet in these two favorable fixtures to return double digit haul.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is our second captain pick for GW24.
His captainers will hope he delivers especially in the match against Fulham rather than against Manchester City.
Our number one captain pick is Raheem Sterling who blanked only 3 times during last 13 gameweeks where he featured.
You can also captain Gundogan, but we consider Sterling to be better option.
