Here are our FPL Way Picks for the Blank Gameweek 36 which commences on Friday 14th May at 18:30.
Each week we build a team who we feel will make a solid team for the Gameweek with a 100 million budget. This weeks team comes out at 99.8 million. You may have more funds in the bank so there are possible upgrades you could potentially do here.
Following the Triple Gameweek where we had Man Utd play three fixtures and with a lot of Double Gameweeks as well; this week we have a few teams who will blank. The four team with a Blank Gameweek are shown below:
THE FPL WAY XV – WHO ARE THE BEST FPL PLAYERS TO OWN FOR BGW36?
We will be going through all the fixtures for our team selection and will provide you with the reason as to why we have selected them.
Newcastle vs Man City
For Man City, we have doubled up and have gone with Ederson Santana de Moraes (6.1m) and Phil Foden (6.0m). Ederson can be your set and forget keeper for the rest of the season and we can expect some clean sheets in their upcoming games. When Foden has played the full 90 minutes, he has accumulated 1 goal and 3 assists. The Pep roulette as we all know can be a very frustrating thing for managers, but should he start, he can certainly get some attacking returns.
Burnley vs Leeds
We have actually tripled up on Leeds assets with Stuart Dallas (5.2m), Raphinha (5.4m) and Patrick Bamford (6.3m). Leeds have the easiest fixtures for the rest of the season now (alongside Liverpool) and we can definitely see a lot of defensive and attacking returns within their last 3 games. With Dallas, not only is he a great defender, but he has scored 8 goals and assisted 3 times so far this season. For a defender with these stats and his price, we just simply couldn’t go without him. Raphinha assisted Bamford’s goal in the last fixture. With Raphinha now back from injury, we can see the partnership coming back into action with more attacking returns for the team.
Spurs vs Wolves
In this fixture, we have gone for two Spurs assets with Heung-Min Son (9.5m) and Harry Kane (11.8m). Son has scored 17 goals and 10 assists this season and Harry Kane has scored 21 goals and provided 13 assists. These two players work great together and we most certainly can expect a lot of attacking returns from the pair in their last 3 matches. Kane is currently the top scorer in the Premier League with 21 goals with Mo Salah chasing him at 20. That being said, Kane will want to secure the golden boot and will definitely strive to get on the score sheet.
West Brom vs Liverpool
We have doubled up with Liverpool players in our starting XI with Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.6m) and Mohamed Salah (12.7m). Liverpool has one of the easiest set of fixtures for the rest of the season so it is no surprise to see some of their players in our team. Yes, TAA is the most expensive defender in Fantasy Football but when he starts getting attacking returns on top of clean sheets, the price tag is certainly justified. In the last 6 games, TAA has one goal and one assist to his name and has accumulated 49 points with only one blank. In the last 5 matches, Salah has scored 3 goals and assisted once and we definitely expect him to keep up his great form until the end of the season.
Everton vs Sheffield Utd
For Everton, we have picked Seamus Coleman (4.9m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (7.6m). With Everton playing bottom of the league, we can expect a clean sheet and some attacking returns. Coleman is a great pick for his price tag and quite the differential really with only 2.8% ownership. DCL seems to be showing signs of the early form he had at the start of the season and has picked up 2 goals and an assist in his last 3 games. Both players are great picks for this week and next Gameweek as well where they will face Wolves at home.
Our Bench Picks
Fraser Forster (4.0m)
With Forster back in Southampton’s first team and for his price tag; he is a great keeper to have in your team.
Ademola Lookman (4.8m)
Fulham has some decent fixtures coming up and we all know he is fully capable of getting some attacking returns.
Nathaniel Phillips (4.1m)
With Liverpool having one of the easiest set of fixtures until the end of the season and for only 4.1m, Phillips is a great addition to your team. You could even potentially double him up with TAA to capitalise on the potential clean sheet points.
Tyrick Mitchell (3.8m)
Mitchell is the cheapest defender in Fantasy Premier League, with him currently in the starting team for Palace and some pretty favourable fixtures, again, he’s a great addition to the squad.
