Dominic Solanke

The Double Game Week in Fantasy Premier League Game Week 28 presents an opportunity for managers to haul huge returns as Bournemouth and Luton Town both have two fixtures each this weekend.

There are only 11 game weeks left this season and transfers will become crucial as the 2023/24 campaign shortens. Hence, the DGW is a perfect time to indulge in about four to five participants if you can fit them all into your lineup.

It is still advised to not ignore stable long-term picks who have a single game, especially as there is a Blank coming up in GW29. The FootballCastle has provided the best picks you can consider ahead of the Double Gameweek 28 deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday, 9 March.


Neto (£4.6m)

The Brazilian is backed to deliver strong returns in consecutive DGW28 home matches against Sheffield United and Luton Town. Neto has a good run of fixtures thereafter and he can be relied upon having earned one save point in eight of his last nine matches.


William Saliba (£5.8m) 

The highest-ranked defender in FPL has delivered returns in three of the last four games and he will take on Brentford at home in GW28.

Although there is a blank before he is next in action against Manchester City, Saliba can be rotated in and out of the lineup to maximise his potential. 

Gabriel (£5.3m

The other half of Arsenal’s centre-back pairing can extend his excellent form after two goals, an assist and four clean sheets in his last seven matches.

Alfie Doughty (£4.7m) 

Luton Town’s form has tailed off in recent games but their left wing-back has the attacking qualities to stay relevant as he remains the team’s most creative player. 

Doughty is the most-bought defender when he faces Crystal Palace and Bournemouth in DGW28 while he is also scheduled to face Nottingham Forest in BGW29.


Bukayo Saka (£9.2m) 

Bukayo Saka
Saka is a strong captaincy option despite having one fixture in double game week 28.

Saka is an unsellable asset right now, being the top midfielder in the game as Arsenal have scored 31 times in the last seven GWs. The Arsenal winger has four double-digit returns in that period after seven goals and two assists in his last six matches.

Mikel Arteta’s men host Brentford who have conceded at least twice in nine of their last 11 league matches and Saka is a front-runner to deliver before next weekend’s blank.

Jarrod Bowen (£7.9m)

Bowen is back in FPL reckoning after Lucas Paquetá’s return from injury coincided with three goals and an assist in the last two games.

West Ham have also scored seven goals in that period and their top scorer is set to benefit as he faces Burnley before another home game against Aston Villa in BGW29.

Son Heung-min (£9.8m)

The Tottenham captain has four double-digit hauls in away games this season and he can add to that tally in consecutive road trips to Aston Villa and Fulham.

Son is playing as an out-of-position centre-forward due to Richarlison’s injury and he can be relied upon especially in the blank Gameweek. 

Cole Palmer (£5.7m)

Palmer has a goal and three assists in the last four games so he offers major value ahead of a GW28 meeting with Newcastle. Chelsea also have two double Game weeks to play this season and you expect Palmer to continue to lead the way in terms of their attacking output.


Dominic Solanke (£7.2m)

The Bournemouth marksman is expectedly the most-bought player going into DGW28 as he hosts Sheffield and Luton, two of the worst defences in the league. 

Solanke is on a career-best 14 Premier League goals and three assists this term and there is no hotter captaincy pick this weekend. 

Ollie Watkins (£9.0m) 

Watkins is enjoying his best-ever FPL campaign after scoring and assisting goals for fun, with 16 and 15 respectively from 27 games. Aston Villa are in GW28 action against Tottenham who have not kept a clean sheet in nine league matches and Watkins could once again run riot.  

Antoine Semenyo (£4.5m) 

While the clamour for Dominic Solanke is understandable given Bournemouth’s DGW28 schedule, a cheeky price tag for his attacking teammate is exciting considering he is in just over two per cent of squads.

Semenyo scored against Newcastle United and Burnley in the last three GWs so he is likely to haul returns against Sheffield United and Luton. 

Carlton Morris (£5.2m) 

Luton’s number nine is the second most-bought player as he plays Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest over the next two Game weeks. 

Following a run of five goals and two assists over his last seven appearances, Morris is one of the most in-form players in the game and managers would do well to select him.
