We answer a question many managers will have on their minds in the build up to the new round, should we play a chip in Gameweek 29?. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area, whilst also considering the potential blank and double Gameweeks, small or large ahead, we can find out.
The period ahead could be absolutely detrimental to the success of any given FPL manager. Managers who still have chips available will be deliberating the use of one so making sure we have all the details will be key. So, should we play a chip in Gameweek 29?
As we can see from the fixture ticker above there is a huge double Gameweek in the round ahead. Teams that have two fixtures this week include Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Brentford, Brighton, Chelsea, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle, Nottingham Forest and West Ham.
Teams that have a good single Gameweek fixture include Arsenal, Fulham, Manchester City and Tottenham.
What the fixture ticker does not show is that there is going to be a probable double Gameweek in 34. The teams that are very likely to play twice include Brighton, Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham United.
Other teams that are likely to double include Fulham and Liverpool.
Similar to Gameweek 34, the fixture ticker does not present the details of a likely double Gameweek in 37 either. The teams very likely to double include Brighton, Manchester City and Manchester United. Another team that are likely to double is Chelsea.
Teams that have the possibility of doubling here include Fulham and Liverpool
Gameweek 29 is the last best time to use the wildcard. Managers who activate their wildcard this week will be able to use it to navigate the double in 29, blank in 32, and the likely doubles in Gameweek 34 and 37. This could give users the best possible team for one of the most significant stages of the season.
Using the bench boost in Gameweek 29 could also be the last best time to use it. Gameweek 29 is the last biggest double Gameweek of the season and there are also great single Gameweek fixtures for teams with highly owned players.
The most experienced FPL managers tend to use their free hit chip in blanks Gameweeks. Blank Gameweek 32 could be a better time to use it. However attacking the doubles ahead and bringing in the most in-form players could also be very beneficial.
Similar to the free hit there could be a better time to use the triple captain chip. The most consistent FPL assets in the game do not have a double in Gameweek 29, other than Marcus Rashford who has questionable fixtures. Double Gameweeks 34 and 37 could be a better time to use triple captain as Brighton, Manchester United and Manchester City are all very likely to double.
