Managers in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) are reshuffling their forward lines ahead of the upcoming Double Gameweek 25 and Blank Gameweek 26.

Among the most-sold players are Ollie Watkins (£8.7m), Dominic Solanke (£6.9m), and Julian Alvarez (£6.7m), while Erling Haaland (£14.4m) and Darwin Nunez (£7.6m) are gaining popularity for their double fixtures. Rasmus Hojlund (£7.1m) is also attracting attention as one of the most-bought players.

Here's what FPL experts advise:

1. Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily):

Sam is considering tweaking her forward line, which currently includes Watkins, Solanke, and Haaland. She eyes Ivan Toney (£8.2m) for his Double Gameweek 25 and Blank Gameweek 26 appearances, but freeing up funds might require selling one of her mid-priced defenders.

2. Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily):

Lee believes Watkins' fixtures are too good to let go. Solanke could make way for Nunez, although Solanke's return for AFC Bournemouth's Double Gameweek 28 is enticing. Nunez is promising for Double Gameweek 25, but Diogo Jota (£8.3m) and Luis Diaz (£7.5m) are also solid options.

3. Utkarsh Dalmia (@ZopharFPL):

Utkarsh suggests holding onto Watkins as he has a favorable fixture in Blank Gameweek 26 against Nottingham Forest. Solanke could be sold temporarily, with plans to reinstate him for Bournemouth's Double Gameweek 28.

4. Nick Harris (@WGTA_Nick):

Nick opts to forego Nunez and sticks with Alvarez for the Double Gameweek alongside Haaland and Watkins. Solanke is earmarked for Bournemouth's Double Gameweek 28. He eyes Jota and possibly Diaz for midfield cover.

5. Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg):

Ben advises against selling players to buy them back soon after unless necessary for acquiring Haaland. He suggests retaining Watkins and Solanke due to their favorable fixtures.

6. Gianni Buttice (@GianniButtice):

Gianni, a Nunez owner, values his contribution to Liverpool but acknowledges the preciousness of forward slots, especially with Haaland's return. He expects managers to consider Toney, Solanke, Nunez, and Watkins for their forward positions.

As managers navigate the upcoming gameweeks, the choices among forwards remain pivotal in shaping FPL teams.
