Navigating Double Gameweek 37 (23/24)

Introduction

As the fantasy football season reaches its climax, navigating a double gameweek can be crucial for securing those final points. With Arsenal leading by a slim margin over Manchester City. Six teams (Brighton, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Newcastle and Spurs) face a double gameweek in the second last week of the season, managers need to strategize effectively to maximize their scores. Here are some tips on how to approach this critical phase, considering different chip strategies:

 

Wildcard

If you still have your wildcard, consider using it to revamp your squad for the double gameweek. Bring in players from Arsenal and Manchester City who have favorable fixtures and are in good form as the season could come down to goal difference and Pep and Arteta will not like to leave everything up for grabs come GW38! With this strategy load your bench with GW38 differentials and maximise your 11 for GW37, avoid defenders from Fulham, Man Utd, and Spurs.

 

Bench Boost

With a double gameweek, activating the Bench Boost chip could yield significant points. Ensure that your team consists of attacking players from Newcastle, Chelsea and Manchester City who are likely to play most of the 180 minutes.

 

Triple Captain

While it might be tempting to use the Triple Captain chip during a double gameweek, it’s essential to assess the fixtures carefully. Avoid choosing a defender especially if playing against Arsenal or Manchester City as their negative score could outweigh any gains elsewhere. Even if chasing rank remember picking Haaland is obvious, if you have a decent rank but just need a small boost the competition may regret not captaining the Norse God! Plus at this stage in the season any triple captain pick is almost a differential.

 

Free Hit

If you’ve been saving your Free Hit chip, now might be the perfect time to use it. This allows you to construct a team specifically tailored to the double gameweek fixtures, maximizing potential points and you will know exactly what team you need to beat in you mini league. More than 100 points to gain, good luck best to ensure you have a completely different team to those you are chasing. Although you should keep Haaland.

 

Big Hauls Abound

Arsenal (83 points, GD: 60):

With Arsenal leading by a slim margin, managers might lean towards Arsenal players for consistency and form. Look for key assets like Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz, or Ben White, who have been performing well recently as the season could come down to goal difference and Pep and Arteta will not like to leave everything up for grabs come GW38!

Manchester City (82 points, GD: 54):

Despite trailing by a point, Manchester City has an extra game to play, providing an opportunity for more points. Players like Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, or Erling Haaland, can easily get double digit hauls. Bernardo Silva, Manuel Akanji and Rodri could offer some differential options.

 

Limiting Players Playing Against Each Other

With only six teams doubling, it’s crucial to limit picking players who play against each other. Avoid stacking players in defence from Fulham, Man Utd, and Spurs, limit defenders against teams who could still gain a position in the league unless they’re standout options!

 

Chasing Rank with Differentials

To chase rank, consider picking differentials with recent form. Players like Callum Wilson, Noni Madueke, Bruno Guimaraes, Manuel Akanji, or Richarlison de Andrade could provide value with their recent performances and favorable fixtures.

 

General Tips

Keep an eye on injuries and rotation. With the season nearing its end, some players may be rested or carrying knocks.

Look beyond Arsenal and Manchester City. Other teams with favorable fixtures in the double gameweek could provide differentials that may make a significant impact.

Stay updated with team news and form guides to make informed decisions leading up to the deadline.

Navigating a double gameweek requires careful planning and consideration of the teams of mini league rivals. Player selections and whether to risk a hit can make all the difference in the final stretch of the fantasy football season. Hope this helps and best of luck, we’ll see you soon!
