One of the biggest movers in the market for the Gameweek 24 tips is Wolves midfielder Diego Jota. Fantasyczine looks at whether he is a good bandwagon to get on board and whether the attacking returns are sustainable.
Tempted by Jota? Form, OOP, fixtures, price. What's not to like? Is buying Jota kind of knee-jerking, points chasing or rather getting in-form player? I took a look at non TOP6 players in past 4 years after scoring hat-trick (I apologize for lack of proper graphics) #FPL pic.twitter.com/7AhvCPhCfV

Eden Hazard has seen plenty of sales, despite a pair of favourable upcoming fixtures. Will from Fantasy Football Hub delves into the statistics to see whether a lack of faith in Chelsea’s main man can be justified.
Shots on target over last 4 Gameweeks:
Pogba – 11 👀
Rashford – 10 👀
Firmino – 8
Salah – 7
Mane – 7
Hazard – 2
Time to ship Eden (if you haven't already)?#FPL

It looks to be a tricky decision on captaincy for the Gameweek 24 tips, selecting between Salah and Aubameyang. While the general consensus is that Mo Salah should be a permanent choice for the run in, should other options be considered?

We crunch the stats on Salah v Rashford v Hazard v Aubameyang and provide 2x differential (C) options ✅

With the Double Gameweek in 25 the current big talking point in the community, Neil Murray shares his latest transfer thoughts. It’s important not to overlook the looming blank for 4 clubs coming up in Gameweek 27.
Don't forget EVE & MCI both blank in GW27 (& CHE & BRI)
Any players you bring in/already own will need to be benched/sold 2 GWs later (as well as Hazard/Alonso etc)
Depending on your team, I'd be looking at 3 MCI+EVE as the optimal amount for DWG25, even 4 seems too many imo.

Fantasy Football Pundits look into the transfer market to identity those players who are gaining and losing popularity. An out of form Richarlison has frustrated many, but a game against Huddersfield and then a Double Gameweek could justify holding the Everton asset.

It’s all aboard the Manchester United train once again ahead of Gameweek 24, with two particular assets from Old Trafford proving too good to resist.https://t.co/WIGIoaCvqx

Fantasy Football Scout put the Double Gameweek coverage to a poll. Many are making moves now, with favourable fixtures for the Gameweek 24 tips too. 3-4 players looks to be most popular, with some coverage essential, but not too much.
With Manchester City and Everton set to enjoy a Double Gameweek 25 (but also a blank Gameweek 27), how many #FPL assets in total from these two clubs are you looking to stock up on for GW25 – and whom?

Liverpool defenders are a cause for concern in the Gameweek 24 tips, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil Van Dijk currently flagged. Ben Dinnery gives an update on the fitness of both players ahead of the deadline.
Van Dijk (illness) is yet to train since returning from the warm weather training camp in Dubai. However, there was better news regarding Fabinho and Dejan Lovren who are in contention to face Leicester. Alexander-Arnold (knee) could miss out while James Milner is suspended. #LFC

Top manager Adam Hopcroft shares some sound advice for strategy in his latest Twitter thread, with Double Gameweek’s influencing many transfers plans. There’s plenty of food for thought in there for fantasy managers.
My thoughts on double gameweek
1) Dont try & emulate other fpl teams. Everyone is in a unique situation – copying often means you're 1 step behind
2) Don't be ruled by hope & fear – use logic to make decisions. Anyone with 6 dgw players may suffer in later game weeks
