He's got an update on his watchlist, transfer advice and captaincy picks, plus these questions answered: With the rotation risk ahead of the cup final, should we transfer out our Chelsea assets for other DGW starters? Hold James? Or move to Dias for double city defence? Keep or sell Mount? Are there any Chelsea players you’d include on a free hit this week based on current form? Should we move Chelsea assets to Man City ones even if it’s for a hit? Is Mount to Foden worth a hit? Is KDB the best differential captain this week and is it better to go for Foden or Laporte on a Free Hit? For those of us that went Dewsbury-Hall in recent weeks, is it worth a -4 to move to Gordon due to security of starts in the upcoming doubles?   Is it worth removing Kulusevski for another mid-price option with better fixtures but less certainty of minutes such as Foden or Maddison?  Depending on minutes and fitness tomorrow I really like a punt on Vardy. Is he forgotten? Is it worth transferring Ramsdale for any other keeper at this stage of the season? Is free hit a given even if you have 9 players playing twice? Learn more about your ad choices.

Would a FH in GW33 eliminate any need for Man United assets?  With Ramsdale and Dubravka both in doubt, is Pope for a -4 a clever shout for GW31, given his doubles?  For those with 1 FH left, which do you think of FH33 or FH36 is better?

Planning for Double Gameweek 29 and Blank Gameweek 30

The FPL General picks up the pieces after a big double gameweek and looks ahead to another double in GW29 while also keeping an eye on the upcoming GW30 where a number of teams do not play. We've also got a watchlist update, captaincy advice, plus answers for these questions: Who are the best assets from teams that play twice in DGW29 and don’t blank in BGW30? Stuck with Son but want Kane. Is a Son and Jimenez to Kulusevski and Kane for a -4 worthwhile? Would you sell Coutinho for Kulusevski? Which one Spurs player to pick for the next 2 GWs, Doherty or Kulusevski? Is it worth selling someone like Digne or Saiss ahead of GW29 for a Spurs defender (probably Doherty) for the extra fixture in 29 even though both Villa & Wolves do both play in 30? With Spurs & Arsenal doubling in 29, playing in 30 & good fixtures going forward…are ‘big hits’ (-8,-12) justifiable if single game week players with poor fixtures (eg. Villa or teams blanking in 30) are being replaced? If you owned Reece James, would you hold as he’s due back in GW31? Or sell him on? If so, who for? Jota or Diaz to fill the Bowen spot in midfield? How many and which Leicester assets do we need for the upcoming gameweeks? Best Leicester defensive asset to bring in? Is GW30 worthy of a Free Hit if you can only field 6-7 players or would it be better utilised later in the season for a big DGW? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In particular, Rudiger v James.  Would you sell Cancelo this week for a Chelsea defender?  Can we go without TAA now with Robertson performing so well?  Raphinha vs JWP - best choice for this week's double only?   Which is the best Newcastle midfielder for DGW28 and DGW29 - Fraser or Willock and why?  Is Bowen to Raphinha a move worth doing despite Bowen now having a game in the blank week 30?  Three tempting Southampton full backs, but each one a concern for minutes, is Bednarek the play?  Best picks for people on a wildcard this week?  Have two FHs still, the plan was always to use them in 30 and 33 but is there more upside to using one in 28?  Which out of DGW28 or DGW29 would the bench boost chip be best activated?

Salah Regret & Free Hit Gameweek 27

The FPL General reflects on a late decision to wildcard, following last Friday's fixture changes, and why he'll get over not triple-captaining 84 pt hero Mo Salah... Plus, why it makes sense to use a Free Hit chip for Gameweek 27 as well as, answers to the following: Who are the best Triple Captain options, if you still haven't used it? What's the minimum number of players you would say to play in BGW27? I have six players from Liverpool & Arsenal, and 1 Free Hit... Would you FH this week and save your wildcard for next? Should those of us on a Free Hit aim to have some bench cover or simply put as much money into our starting 11 as possible? Are Burnley assets worth a hit this week if we don't plan on keeping them going forward? Who are some of the best differential picks for a free hit squad? Foden vs Sancho vs Sterling for the free hit selection? Which Man City triple up to go for on Free Hit? Do you go for Fernandes or Sancho from the Manchester United midfield on a free hit? Could Podence be a sneaky differential in the upcoming weeks? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Gameweek 24 midweek fixtures preview

FPL General is back after a lengthy gameweek 23 finally drew to a close at the weekend, and it was a tough one for a lot of managers. We look ahead to gameweek 24 with the usual array of transfer advice, watchlist updates, and these questions answered: What strategy would you go for with ALL CHIPS left to use? How many hits is it worth taking for a Bench Boost, -4 or -8? What do you think of Free Hit GW26 and have at least a strong 11 who all double, as opposed to the crowd of Triple Captain Salah as a part of a chip strategy? Bruno. Salah. KdB. Ronaldo. Kane. Son. Which two or three do you see as the most effective from GWs 24-27? With so many premium assets back in form, is it "essential", especially structure-wise, to have a two premium set up, or is it still viable to perma captain Salah and spread the cash? Top 3 defenders to buy ahead of GW24 excluding Trent & Cancelo? Unlimited budget. Is Rashford a viable alternative to Ronaldo and Bruno as a Man United attacking option for the next two gameweeks? Are the Crystal Palace options worth a punt? Good recent underlying stats but mostly from home games…next 3 out of 4 fixtures are away… Is it worth holding the Watford strikers for the upcoming DGW? Is it worth thinking outside the box when looking for strikers? Benteke, Edouard, Richarlison for example? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
