FPL Gameweek 29 Scout Picks: Brighton + Man Utd triple-ups

We have chosen our best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Double Gameweek 29.

Manchester United, Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea are just some of the 12 teams playing twice, with the deadline set for Saturday at 11:00 BST.

As ever, we are limited to £83.0m for our first XI. And, after a reader vote ahead of 2022/23, an overall price cap of £100.0m is in place for our 15-man squad, too.


Lining up in goal for the Scout Picks is Brighton keeper Jason Steele (£3.9m). Since taking over from Robert Sanchez (£4.6m), he has 17 points in three matches, with clean sheets coming against Crystal Palace and West Ham United. In Double Gameweek 29, the Seagulls are first at home to Brentford before they visit relegation-threatened Bournemouth, who have the lowest xG in the division.


FPL Double Gameweek 27 differentials: Mbeumo, Chilwell + Elliott 2

Kieran Trippier (£6.1m) earns yet another call-up to the Scout Picks line-up, with plenty of demand for the Newcastle United defender in this week’s Scout Squad article. A staple in the team of nearly every Fantasy manager, he is the highest-scoring player in his position, having combined a goal and six assists with 14 clean sheets and 31 bonus points. The Magpies have failed to keep a clean sheet since January but the data suggests they have been a bit unlucky of late, with only five shots in the box conceded in their two most recent outings.

Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) is our pick of the Chelsea defenders. The flying wing-back has hit the ground running since his return from injury, with 19 points across his last three matches. No FPL defender has matched him for successful crosses or chances created in that time. Back-to-back home games with Aston Villa and Liverpool are far from straightforward, but in all competitions under Graham Potter, the Blues have conceded just seven goals in 13 games at Stamford Bridge.

Luke Shaw (£5.2m) completes our defensive picks. He is the top-scoring player in his position since the World Cup and after missing England’s 2-0 win over Ukraine on Sunday through suspension, should be well rested. Man Utd will have to cope without Casemiro (£4.9m) against Newcastle and Brentford, a blow to their clean sheet hopes, yet Shaw thrived the last time he was out, averaging 6.3 points per match across his three outings.
