After a rather sub-par Blank Gameweek 18, FPL managers will be looking forward to Double Gameweek 19 that promises the managers plenty of big FPL hauls.

Gameweek 18 saw popular FPL assets such as Bruno Fernandes and Son Heung-min fire blanks. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Harry Kane provided meager single-digit FPL returns. The average total this gameweek was 30 FPL points.

I had another sub-par Gameweek for a Free Hitter, finishing with 39 FPL points after handing the captain's armband to Aubameyang. I made some changes to the team I initially suggested due to some fixture postponements and some late fitness calls.

Hugo Lloris, Adama Traore, and Romain Saiss were some of the new players in my team, with neither of them creating much impact.

However, with teams such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester, and West Ham all having two fixtures each, Gameweek 19 should see a very high average FPL total.

This is also the time when FPL managers use one of the chips, with the Triple Captain and the Bench Boost being the more popular ones. I have decided to play my Wildcard as this represents a turning point in fixtures for a lot of teams, and I feel that it can be capitalized on.

Whatever changes they choose to make, FPL managers should do so ahead of the Gameweek 19 deadline on Saturday afternoon.

Gameweek 19 Deadline: Saturday, 16th January at 11:00 AM (GMT) and 4:30 PM (Indian Standard Time)

Note: There might be some fixture postponements due to ongoing COVID-19 situations in some clubs. FPL managers should be prepared for the same, with a decent bench.

I will be playing my second Wildcard ahead of Gameweek 19. While I have retained my midfield core of Fernandes, Salah, and De Bruyne, I have focussed some funds on building a decent bench and getting some premium defenders in.


Best FPL XI for Gameweek 19

Chips activated: Wildcard

Point Hits taken (if any): None

Captain/vice-captain: Mohamed Salah (or) Kevin De Bruyne (or) Bruno Fernandes

The three big-hitters in midfield are the options that I'm considering for the armband. Salah is my favorite because of the risks that the other two options possess.

Bruno Fernandes, who is on four yellow cards, could miss the second game against Burnley if he gets booked against Liverpool.

Manchester City's second game against Aston Villa also has a slight risk of getting postponed, although the rescheduling of their games does lend some confidence in that direction.
