Earlier this week, FPL Académica posted an excellent article on strategy. There’s a wide range of situations covered, for those with all the chips and those with some missing. They certainly cover all of the options, as well as discussing some differentials for the run in.

FPL General returns with Episode 5 of the 59th Minute Podcast, which now has a lovely graphic. There’s absolutely no strategy talk, as the key focus is on the “Wildcard Watchlist”. The General goes through every single Premier League team and discusses the options. Be sure to listen before the deadline.

In a new venture, FPL FC has created an excellent video to analyse the key transfer targets for the upcoming Double Gameweek 34. We are feeling confident as several of these players are already in our wildcard team. It only takes a minute to take a watch.
Trying out something new.
Here's my top 3 picks for the DGW period in video form!

The guys at Fantasy Football Noise have gone spreadsheet crazy this week in preparation for the double gameweek. They make sense of it all in their brand new Gameweek 32 preview podcast. It’s well worth a listen.

In summary; you need to load up on BUR for GK, def and mid; LIV attack, then any of ARS, MUN, LEI and MCI, watching out for rotation at MCI. Consider TOT and CHE too. Simple. 🤷🏼♂️#FPL #FPLcommunity #spreadsheetery pic.twitter.com/uSWOyzLwBd

One of the biggest wildcard dilemmas for fantasy football managers, is whether to include Kane or have a strong contingency plan for getting him back in when fit. There’s been mixed messages for several weeks, but the latest report from Ben Dinnery suggests he could be back sooner than imagined.
Southgate on Kane: “I don’t know exactly when he’ll be back, but he’s confident it will be sooner rather than later. [For] exact timescales, you’d have to speak to the medical team at Spurs [but] I’d imagine he’d be back fairly quickly.” #COYS

Another issue puzzling the community is which Leicester attackers to include over the coming weeks. The fixtures are great, both Mahrez and Vardy are proving popular. Have you considered the double up though? Fantasy Football Fairy has Vahrez on his radar.
In the latest Who Got The Assist? podcast, the team discussed a boomerang strategy with strikers. This tactic essentially means transfers between the top options for each Gameweek. Will it be a strategy you adopt for the season run in?
Here's an outline of the striker Auboomerang↪️ thing I mentioned on the pod
The idea is to treat Strikers like mercenaries and play them aggressively for fixtures 🗡️.
Bit of a hokey cokey, but fairly easy to do and gives you optimal strikers for the fixtures per week 😀.#FPL pic.twitter.com/Vc6DPTe1Jr

The final attacking slots are certainly problematic to fill, particularly when managers don’t want to lose Mo Salah, despite the congested schedule. Nymfria attempts to set the issues out in her wildcard spreadsheet.
⚠️ If like me you're W/Crding in #FPL and your head is #spinning over your premium FWRDs, I was also considering my options if I didn't get Auba, hence the some MID's comparison.
Then I hope this comparison of the past 5 games these players have played might help you 😊✍️ pic.twitter.com/VCCS9wd57G
