Fantasy experts debate whether or not to play the chip in Double Gameweek 26

Gameweek 26 is the biggest Double Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League history, so is it the perfect time to use the Triple Captain chip?

Expert Sam Bonfield is playing hers this weekend and putting faith in Harry Kane (£11.1m) for Tottenham Hotspur's matches against Burnley and Fulham.

"I'm going to trust him with my Triple Captain chip," she says on the latest FPL Show. "I've been building up to this week for a long time." 

Fellow expert David Munday is Bench Boosting in Gameweek 26, when 14 teams play twice, so cannot also play his Triple Captain.

But he believes FPL managers should be wary of wasting the chip.

"I don't trust any combination of fixtures," he counters. "I like Everton's fixtures but I don't like Everton enough to Triple Captain one of their players. 

"I like Man City, Man Utd and Liverpool but I don't trust their fixtures. This isn't a Triple Captaincy Gameweek."

But who is he going to hand his armband to?

"Fernandes or Calvert-Lewin," adds Munday. "Fernandes is the safe pick, Calvert-Lewin is the risky differential pick."
