Fantasy Strategy.

When Plans FailWhat’s the point of planning? Good planning should increase the odds of achieving the goal – maximize results while reducing the risk. Not this season! After investing on Double Gameweek 19 players with scoring potential in the games leading up to it, fixtures were abruptly rescheduled. Leeds and Southampton no longer have a DGW19, Aston Villa suffered a COVID outbreak.

I accounted for unexpected events by taking a more short-term approach. But effective planning is dependent on a degree of stability in the field. Tottenham’s match against Fulham GW16 was called off just two hours before kickoff! Using Kane and Son as a combination differential didn’t work as intended because of circumstances beyond my control.

Do I have any regrets? The plan was to maximize points before, during and after BGW18. It wasn’t about any individual Gameweek score. Crucial games were suddenly postponed, BGW18 disappointed, and players brought in for hits no longer have a DGW19. The challenge now is to fight off the negative thoughts because that could lead do a downward spiral.

Planning is one tool of many. It can work well in situations with a high degree of predictability. But it can be rendered counterproductive with instability.

What do I do now? I watched every game. Grinding through many of them felt like a form of punishment mentally. But I did it because I don’t want to make decisions in the dark. Assessing individual and team form remains an important factor in FPL, although it’s becoming less reliable.

⚽️ If you know what to do today, then go do it and make adjustments after.

YouTube Videos.

I haven’t been posting YouTube videos because by the time I’m done recording, another game is cancelled rendering the video obsolete. I’m confirming key decisions minutes before deadline using the latest information. I miss making videos and music and can’t wait to get back! 😎 -Bruno

GW18 Review.

GW18 points: 46PTS (AVG: 30). Upper 90 Studios climbed to 148k in the Overall Rank.

The Results.

BGW18 Points

The Bad.

Karl Darlow (2PTS). The first half red card and penalty when the defender was pushed certainly didn’t help. But the truth is Sheffield United were up for this game. Steve Bruce invited the opponent to attack with his defensive approach, which they did by playing all their strikers!

Callum Wilson (2PTS). Should’ve scored with a header in the first half, but he was almost caught off guard by the driven first-time cross. Wilson was feeding off scraps even before the red card.

Romain Saiss (1PT). Everton were without their top striker Calvert-Lewin and I wanted to use Saiss as a differential against Tierney. Iwobi turned into Messi and scored five minutes in. 🙂

Pedro Neto (2PTS). He was creating chances from open play when he was taken out by a Doucoure tackle from behind. Never really recovered from the knock to his knee and is a doubt for GW19.

Bruno Fernandes (2PTS). Passed him up as captain or vice captain after a recent dip in levels.

Alexandre Lacazette (2PTS). One of the most infuriating performances from a Fantasy standpoint. With short recovery time between games, players must run with a purpose and save their energy. Lacazette chased defenders instead of combining with teammates in the attacking play. ❌

The Good.

Ruben Dias (7PTS) and João Cancelo (6PTS). Ruben Dias made everything look easy, Cancelo played a free role with less defensive responsibility.

Harry Kane (8PTS) and Son Heung-min (2PTS). The scoreline is less important in Fantasy than performances. Kane’s diving header helped him earn two bonus points. Son nearly tucked in a cross in the first half, then struck the post in the second with a trademark run in behind.

Captain Success.

Kevin De Bruyne (12PTS, captain). Excellent showing deserving of double digit returns in FPL. Two chances to score with just the keeper to beat, then earned a penalty in stoppage time which Sterling skied over the bar. De Bruyne finished on 6 points but it could’ve been a hat-trick. 👍

Chips Strategy.

The plan was laid out on the previous post >>> Blank Gameweek 18 Team FREE HIT CHIP!

Which is mostly unchanged from the video >>> Minimalist Guide to Blank and Double Gameweeks

fpl chips

Free Hit Chip BGW18, then choose an option for DGW19:

  1. Transfer hits
  2. Bench Boost Chip
  3. Second Wildcard
  4. NEW: Triple Captain Chip

I’m settled on the Transfer hits option. The idea is to maximize scoring potential DGW19 with a mix of single and double Gameweek players, leaving a solid team for the long-run. Since Leeds and Southampton had one of their games postponed, the Bench Boost becomes less enticing. Che Adams was previously on the bench, he makes way. Wildcard is saved.

GW19 Transfers.

transfers iconTransfers: 4 (-12 hit)

DEFENDERS: Justin, Coufal, Dallas
MIDFIELDERS: Salah, De Bruyne, Fernandes, Son, Soucek
FORWARDS: Kane, Bamford
BENCH: Mitchell

7x DGW players: Martinez, Justin, Coufal, Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Soucek
4x SGW players: Dallas, Bamford, Son, Kane

Five high-ceiling premium attackers at the expense of team balance:

  • Salah
  • De Bruyne
  • Fernandes
  • Son
  • Kane


Kevin De Bruyne is set as captain with two favorable home fixtures. The king of the Double Gameweek returns as vice captain – Mo Salah. Triple Captain Chip is an option DGW19.
