Everyone remember that old Nintendo game, Double Dribble.  Well that is what the FPL is offering up this week the Doubles that are causing us to all dribble with drool.  The options are abundant, and set up nicely for chips…granted you have set yourself up that way. Rankings for double game weeks are fairly easy and I will explain my thinking on this process.  If a double game week player plays the minimum amount of minutes and gets the basic 2 point return (no clean sheet, no cards etc) he will get two games of that for a total of 4 points.  Stupid math explanations are awful i reading but stay with me.  The single gameweek player will get only 2 pints for just minimal returns in his single match.  So from a gambling standpoint would you rather have a player who plays two games to actually give you fantasy returns as compared to just one?  the answer is only the two match player.  The further you get down in the rankings the better the return odds for the star players but for the most part the two match player always wins.  it’s like old maid but with football boots and kits instead.  So here are the FPl rankings for matchweek 34, the week we have been pining for since we started to know that doubles existed.  Good luck and happy chipping and transferring. Cheers!

    Torn between chips this week in regards to GW 34 and GW37.

    Have a bench boost and triple captain left.

    My team:

    Schmeichel
    Lowton Tarkowski Alonso
    Mahrez Alli Salah Gross
    Barnes Aubameyang Vardy (C)

    Bench – Dubruvka Lascelles Mustafi Arnautovic

    So……Triple captain Vardy or Mahrez, then bench boost GW 37 with more double Gameweek players

    Or

    Bench boost this week and triple captain in GW37 (Aubameyang probably).
