Fantasy Premier League managers were hit hard Wednesday night as a number of key assets sustained injuries in the FA Cup
While the latest competition results helped clarify which teams would or would not be featured in Blank Gameweek 29, Double Gameweek 24 now has a number of issues to resolve
Popular Dominic Calvert Lewin (£ 77m) and James Justin (£ 52m) were among those taking on trouble on Wednesday, the Everton man with a thigh problem and Leicester full-back with a damaged knee
Two games ago in Double Gameweek 24, Calvert-Lewin is 44 years old6% of the fantasy teams after registering a 12-point move against Manchester United
Elsewhere the 23% Röben Dias (£ 6) 1m) was removed from the Manchester City squad due to an illness, while Nick Pope (£ 5) 5m) “had to be out” ???? Burnley’s FA Cup Match too
The Burnley goalkeeper was already a coveted option for Double Gameweek 24 but his current injury flag casts doubt on him and possibly his defensive colleagues like James Tarkowski (£ 5m) and Ben Mee (£ 50m) of course It’s too early to say whether any or all of these players will recover from their beating to perform this weekend, so fantasy managers are encouraged to keep an eye on our injuries and ban feed
Accordingly, it also makes sense to hold back from the early transfer activities until the press conferences on Thursday and Friday
The FA Cup results on Wednesday evening gave us a clearer picture of the schedule for Blank Gameweek 29
Wins for Manchester City, Leicester City, Sheffield United and Everton mean that the following games alongside Crystal Palace and Manchester United have to be postponed from this round:
Meanwhile, Brighton’s defeat at Leicester tonight confirms that Gameweek 29’s meeting with Newcastle is still going on
This game connects West Ham v Arsenal and Fulham v Leeds as one of three confirmed games for this round
Manchester City continued their formidable attack as they defeated Swansea Kyle Walker (£ 61m), Raheem Sterling (£ 116m) and Gabriel Jesus (£ 92m) all came as Rodri (£ 5) on the scoreboard (3m) assisted twice before leaving injured and Bernardo Silva (£ 74m) set up one too
Ederson (£ 61m), John Stones (£ 52m) and João Cancelo (£ 60m) got rested while Dias was out due to illness
Ilkay Gündogan (£ 60m), Sterling and Jesus all started while Phil Foden (£ 61m) featured in the second half Remarkably, none of these four played the full 90 and a comparatively comfortable performance indicated that they were all against Tottenham at the Start could go
A nasty fall for full-back Justin was the most notable and unfortunate result of a comparatively cage-like game at King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening
James Maddison (£ 74m) and Harvey Barnes (£ 69m) were both on the bench while Jamie Vardy (£ 10m) started but finished in the 62nd Minute replaced as Brendan Rodgers continued to manage his recovery from hernia surgery
A Billy Sharp (£ 55m) fine was enough to send the bottom club of the Premier League into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup against opponents of the championship
David McGoldrick (£ 52m) and Jayden Bogle (£ 43m) both came close to scoring in a match that a strong home team largely controlled
The match also started for Ryan Brewster (4 lb. 4m) and another clean sheet for a belated defense showing belated signs of last season’s strength
An absolute peat festival in Goodison Park showed several FPL assets when two teams competed at almost full strength in a crisp end-to-end cup duel
Only James Rodriguez (£ 77m), Jordan Pickford (£ 48m) and the still-injured Allan (£ 52m) were absent from the Everton roster, while Jose Mourinho named the recovering Harry Kane (£ 11m) the bank, but would throw him into the action later
Goals for Calvert-Lewin, two for Richarlison (£ 78m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£ 68m) and finally Bernard (£ 57m) was just enough to see the hosts sneak in front of a Spurs side, in which substitute Kane in the second half, Erik Lamela (£ 5m) and Davinson Sánchez (£ 52m) also found the net
Elsewhere in the creative stakes a hat trick with assists from Sigurdsson, two from Son Heung-min (£ 9) 6m) and one for Calvert-Lewin would have resulted in some yummy stretches if this had been an FPL game

Fernandinho plays there doing the same job But you never know Could easily Gundo Foden and Bernardo be deep with Gundo
GTG? or to make any hits? (0 feet and 38 minutes itb) Mcarthy (FORSTER) Pieter Rüdiger Cancelo (Justin, Lewis) Salah Fernandes Gundo SON (Soucek) Antonio Bamford Dcl
Ha, I haven’t even seen that, but it would be a transfer for me, not what it looks like anymore ð ??????
Ah my goodness really? So even my TC DGW26 went down on Kane the Swanny ð ??????
My plans for BB DGW24 are in tatters: Justin – DCL – Antonio, all tagged out of nowhere Any updates?
Was taken in Pope and me last week to bench Martinez and Dallas resulting in a -18 point swing for Pope to be tagged now I’ve bent over
I don’t see BB being an option in DGW24 Do not currently use chips or at most TC
Options for the captain of the city suddenly in the trash Gundogan, who is probably playing CDMDias, may not be playing the first game Cancelo is likely to be turned
Stones is statistically the best DGW player this season – I’d be crazy not to command him
Any suggestions here guys? It used to be planned to save this GW and then get a few hits to get some DGW players for 26 and WC in GW30 No idea now martinezdigne steine meesalah bruno sterling brunodcl antonio bamfordforster saka coufal dallas1ft, 26m itb
That’s crazy – after 24 x games (with BB & DGW) I apparently have problems setting up 11 x players ð ??????
Do you think the TC is 27 I think? Double Citeh home game likely But either way you have literally days to see how future games play out Who knows, maybe the magical TGW is somehow possible
If he was guaranteed to start both games and guaranteed to defend Everton and Spurs like they did today, I wouldn’t think twice! But as things are, no! Feel Kane in DGW26 might be a better option if you’re not BBing
Am I gtg? 4 yellow flags are worrying Pope Cancelo – Dias – Digne – MeeSalah – Bruno – Gundo (c) – SoucekDCL – WatkinsSteer – Son – Bamford – Mitchell17 ITB, not sure if I have to make a hit
Get a playing goalkeeper on the bench, only score if it’s someone who plays twice this week or the next and who also has a cheap game in 24 Many people face the same problems
The thing is, either of these two could show up for a 20 minute cameo on the DGW’s final game and ruin the auto-sub option
I didn’t expect to wake up to this mess My transfer goal (Pope) is violated My captain will supposedly play deeper DCL & Antonio has done her hamstrings Slides has stomach problems
DCL was my fault, folks, If I hadn’t said my team would benefit from the FA Cup shenanigans, they would have scored twice more and would have been sent off with 63 minutes
Looks good McCarthy is the weakest link I would say But if the players are back and the Wolves are still scoring shy this could be a good choice
Hope DCL is ok and not serious Has found a shape too If he’s out, would you get Richarlison for a hit? Could make a big difference Even King is worth a shot but I don’t think he has played well in the championship so far Pope’s injury is a tough blow Hopefully he doesn’t mean it either Not just because he was my potential transfer but also, because it weakens Burnley’s defenses. But BPF could be a good, cheap option for DGW 24 if he plays both games
Pope, DCL, and Antonio have tagged Have Johnson, Bamford, AWB, and ESR as subs so I don’t think I have to make a transfer I think Pope will be fine but what are the odds for DCL? Any idea?
Original plan here was BB this week, but now it doesn’t look likely DCL (main concern), Digne, Antonio Doubt, Assuming the BB is not playable – Forster -> Pope looks like my move Had Brewster-> Bamf / Watkins too Planned for a -4 to complete BBSticks something out to change? Got about 12 players for 26 but with 3 doubts this week and Brewster in there and no Leeds / Kane I think a WM 25 / BB 26 is best MartinezCresswell, Steine, Cancelo, Mee, DigneSalah, Gundogan, Fernandes, CoufalAntonioForster , Son, DCL, Brewster, 1ft, 39m ITB WC, BB left by the chips
Hello Foden, how do you feel about the responsibility of the armband? Or are you ready for a bit of TC? PS You’re one of my few unmarked DGW players, so don’t get too big for your boots
Waking up with yellow flag Pope, Dias, DCL l, Anotonio all having trouble and coming off the bank are Martinez, Dallas, son Will this be enough?
Nice new feature FPL introduced, players who are likely to smash it in the coming game week will receive a nice yellow highlight I have 5 of them, like exciting Pope, Digne, Dias, Antonio, DCL already worth a hit to get more of these highlighted Players to win? James, Justin? ð ??????
