FPL 2023-24 – Double Gameweek 7 Bandwagons

-

As we tick towards the first double gameweek of the season so far, we’re assessing those main bandwagon choices attracting the most attention from Fantasy Premier League managers before Double Gameweek 7.

Understandably with just two teams boasting two fixtures as opposed to the standard one in Double Gameweek 7, players from those clubs are generating significant attention, most notably Luton forward Carlton Morris (£5.5m). A regular starter and penalty taker for the Hatters, Morris has scored twice already this season, both times from the penalty spot and most recently in Gameweek 6. His aerial prowess makes him a real attacking threat for Rob Edwards’ side and a bandwagon has emerged with Everton away and Burnley at home to come in Double Gameweek 7.  Over 300,000 FPL managers have already brought in Morris this week.

However, the two most transferred in players leading into Double Gameweek 7 each do not have the luxury of two fixtures in which to score points. Kieran Trippier (£6.6m) bagging an 18-point haul in Gameweek 6 with three assists and a clean sheet away at Sheffield Utd sees him unsurprisingly lead the way, whilst Spurs’ Heung-min Son (£9.2m) made it five goals in his last three Premier League appearances with a brace against Arsenal. Both have gained over 400,000 new owners and healthy bandwagons.

Bandwagons have proven fraught with danger across the FPL campaign so far with the most transferred in player across the past five gameweeks recording a maximum score of just 2 fantasy points. With that in mind, jumping on the bandwagon of either Trippier and/or Son comes with a risk element attached. The same applies to Newcastle centre-back Sven Botman (£4.7m) the one other player to have accumulated over 400,000 new FPL owners at the time of writing. The generously priced defender has accrued two clean sheets, a goal and 21 FPL points across the past two gameweeks, but is an injury doubt for Double Gameweek 7. Be careful, because this particular bandwagon could be easily derailed.
