Who Are The Best FPL Players To Own For GW14?

Here are my FPL Way Picks for Gameweek 14 for the 2021-22 season. The deadline for GW14 is on Tuesday 30th November at 18:00 GMT

I will be building a team that I feel will perform well in Gameweek 14. This team uses the full £100m of the £100m budget.

The FPL XV – Who Are the Best Assets to Own in GW14?

Gameweek 13 was a bit of an interesting one, the average score was only 44 points and we had the Burnley vs Spurs match cancelled which is a massive disappointment to Son and Kane owners. With that now out of the way, we quickly move on to Gameweek 14 and here are the reasons why I have selected the team for this week.


My Gameweek 14 Selection


Goalkeeper

José Malheiro de Sá
  • Wolves vs Burnley
  • Price: £5.0m
  • Ownership: 2.7%
  • Projected Points: 4.9 Points

We start with Sá who we had in my picks last week who returned a whopping 10 points, not too shabby for a GK right? With 2 clean sheets in a row and facing a weak Burnley squad at home, it really wouldn’t surprise me to see another clean sheet in this match.


Defenders

Reece James
  • Watford vs Chelsea
  • Price: £6.3m
  • Ownership: 34.8%
  • Projected Points: 5.5 Points

James is one of the highest average scoring players in FPL with 7.6 points per game. What’s even more impressive is that he has only started 6 matches so far this season and has scored 4 goals and provided 4 assists. With the form that both Chelsea and this attacking defender is in, for me, he just seems to be an absolute essential player for any manager at the moment.

Trent Alexander-Arnold
  • Everton vs Liverpool
  • Price: £7.9m
  • Ownership: 37.6%
  • Projected Points: 5.8 Points

We’ve now had 3 returns in a row from TAA which is 36 points (12 points average in the last 3 GW’s) where he scored a goal and provided 4 assists in those matches. He comes at a large price tag but he’s definitely another essential player in my opinion. Everton has not exactly looked great recently either, so this could well be a clean sheet with another attacking return from TAA.

João Pedro Cavaco Cancelo
  • Aston Villa vs Man City
  • Price: £6.7m
  • Ownership: 35.9%
  • Projected Points: 5.0 Points

This player is another very consistent defender who has averaged 6.2 points per game so far this season. It’s also very impressive to see that he has featured in every match in the Premier League which is very surprising in a heavily rotated Man City squad. He’s very capable of getting attacking returns as well, a defender that has already provided 5 assists is an impressive stat for a defender.

Eric Dier
  • Spurs vs Brentford
  • Price: £4.5m
  • Ownership: 5.0%
  • Projected Points: 4.0 Points

Dier is a very cheap entry into the Spurs defence and with their run of easy fixtures I can see some clean sheets coming along. They face Brentford, Norwich and Brighton in their next 3 and it’s someone I would certainly consider at that price point.


Midfielders

Heung-Min Son
  • Spurs vs Brentford
  • Price: £10.4m
  • Ownership: 20.9%
  • Projected Points: 5.2 Points

It was a big disappointment for me as I owned Son in GW13 where their match was cancelled and it would have been interesting to see how they performed against Burnley. Playing Brentford at home though on Thursday, I feel confident that Son (and Kane) will both get attacking returns in this fixture.

Mohamed Salah
  • Everton vs Liverpool
  • Price: £13.0m
  • Ownership: 72.5%
  • Projected Points: 7.1 Points

For Salah, I’m just going to show his stats, they speak for themself.

Top Goalscorer (11 goals)
Most Assists (9)
Averages 10.1 points per match over 13 Gameweeks with a total of 131 points.

He’s the most consistent player in the Premier League and has only actually blanked once all the way back in GW2. Essential? Yes.

Conor Gallagher
  • Leeds vs Crystal Palace
  • Price: £6.1m
  • Ownership: 28.3%
  • Projected Points: 3.4 Points

Gallagher has looked to be quite the impressive player for Palace, providing 4 goals, 5 assists and 69 points to date. Although he did unfortunately blank in GW13, I feel pretty confident he will get a return against Leeds.

Raphael Dias Belloli
  • Leeds vs Crystal Palace
  • Price: £6.7m
  • Ownership: 19.9%
  • Projected Points: 4.8 Points

After holding Brighton to a goalless draw at the weekend, Leeds United will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League. I can see both teams scoring in this fixture and Raphinha is the player who I think will get the returns in this match up.


Forwards

Raúl Jiménez
  • Wolves vs Burnley
  • Price: £7.8m
  • Ownership: 13.9%
  • Projected Points: 4.5 Points

Wolves face Burnley and these teams sit in the opposite halves of the table. Wolves failed to impress in a goalless draw with Norwich, with the team having no more than five goal attempts, but it is well known that Wolves (especially Jiménez) produce much better showings at home than on the travels. I would be very surprised if he doesn’t get a return this Gameweek.

Allan Saint-Maximin
  • Newcastle vs Norwich
  • Price: £6.8m
  • Ownership: 17.2%
  • Projected Points: 4.3 Points

Newcastle facing Norwich at home just screams returns from ASM for me. What’s actually surprising is that ASM is 4th out of the forwards with the most FPL points. With 3 goals and 4 assists, I’m sure he will return the goods.


Our Bench Picks

Jason Steele (4.0m)

Pure bench fodder pick, that’s all.

Christian Benteke (6.4m)

Playing 17th in the League, I feel Benteke is a decent pick for bench cover this week. A return of some sort wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Javier Manquillo (4.0m)

It’s hard not to favour players that are playing Norwich at home, good bench cover nevertheless. It’s more of an enabler than anything else but Newcastle do face Norwich and Burnley in their next two fixtures…

Yves Bissouma (4.4m)

Another enabler here, just allowing to spend the £100m budget elsewhere within the team.
