Blank Gameweek 29 (BGW29) of the 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League season will be etched in memory, albeit for all the wrong reasons. The Scout delves into this historic low, dissecting the woes and triumphs that unfolded during this tumultuous round of matches.

The Record-Breaking Gameweek:

BGW29 shattered records, registering an average of merely 12 points per manager, thus earning the dubious distinction of being the worst Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League history. Surpassing the previous low of 19 points from Gameweek 28 in the 2016/17 season, this dismal performance left managers reeling.

Challenges Faced by Managers:

For the staggering 1.7 million managers who strategically utilized their Free Hit chip for this truncated round of matches, the outcome proved to be a bitter pill to swallow. The Free Hit chip, albeit providing temporary relief, couldn't shield them from the collective disappointment. Even those who relied solely on transfers to navigate through the reduced round found themselves grappling with underwhelming results.

Unforeseen Heroics:

Despite the widespread dismay, there were standout performers amidst the chaos. Notably, Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min, heavily recruited by 2.1 million managers for the encounter against Fulham, failed to deliver. Conversely, it was Fulham who emerged as unexpected heroes, with three of their players delivering double-figure hauls. Rodrigo Muniz, in particular, showcased his prowess by notching two goals and accumulating an impressive 13 points.

Heartbreak and Bench Woes:

As is often the case in Fantasy Premier League, heartbreak and frustration were palpable. Managers lamented the points left on their benches, with some expressing regret over strategic decisions that backfired. For many, this Gameweek epitomized the epitome of disappointment, with some managing just 30 points despite taking significant hits.


BGW29 of the Fantasy Premier League season will be remembered as a watershed moment, characterized by unprecedented lows and unforeseen triumphs. As managers regroup and strategize for the challenges ahead, the lessons learned from this tumultuous Gameweek will undoubtedly shape their approach in the ensuing matches.
