The business end of this Premier League season came a long time ago. Now we are diving into the part of the season where titles are won and lost. The end of the last international break signals the beginning of absolute mayhem.
Whether you use playoffs or not in Fantrax, now is the time to furiously analyse each set of fixtures. Fantrax have done things slightly differently to the official FPL game and it just so happens that the biggest double gameweek of the season falls in Gameweek 36; the first week of the playoffs.
Same hate them, some love them. The fact is, planning for the double gameweeks can make or break your season. Here is the definitive Fantasy Football 92 guide to navigating the rather complex Fantrax fixture list for the next five weeks.
I told you it’d be mayhem…

- Gameweek 32 – Standard Gameweek
- Gameweek 33 – Mini Double Gameweek
- Gameweek 34 – Standard Gameweek
- Gameweek 36 – Double Gameweek
The doubles are back! Brighton and Cardiff City are the ones to benefit this time. As outlined in the Gameweek 34 article, options should be plentiful for these two teams. If you can get those aerial winners in (Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, Sean Morrison etc.) for that first fixture of the week then you should get yourself a nice head start in Gameweek 35.
As much as it is tempting to load up on the double gameweek options in this week, it’s more important to play the fixtures and look ahead to the big double gameweek in 36.
Bournemouth should score well against a doomed Fulham, for example. Someone like David Brookes or Ryan Fraser is likely to outscore a player like Joe Bennett or Davy Propper who have two fixtures this week. Don’t get too carried away by this double. Next week is the one two focus on.
There are massive games this week at both ends of the table as Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur go head to head at the sharp end while a basement battle between Newcastle United and Southampton takes place at St James Park.
If you’ve already got a couple of the worthwhile Brighton and Cardiff options in for this week, it puts you in a great position to prepare for Gameweek 36. Tottenham, Watford, Arsenal and both Manchester clubs are the ones to look out for. More on that in the next article…
