Who Are The Best FPL Players To Own For GW15?

Here are my FPL Way Picks for Gameweek 15 for the 2021-22 season. The deadline for GW15 is on Saturday 4th December at 11:00 GMT

I will be building a team that I feel will perform well in Gameweek 15. This team uses the full £100m of the £100m allowed budget.

The FPL XV – Who Are the Best Assets to Own in GW15?

Gameweek 14 was more of an interesting one with the average points being 58. Everyone’s favourite captain (Mohamed Salah) rewarded managers with 15 points with a two-goal return against Everton. The most surprising player for me has been Emmanuel Dennis (5.4m), the striker has accumulated 33 points in the last 3 Gameweeks with 3 goals and 3 assists and they have been against good sides, can he do it again against Man City?

GW14 is now in the past and we once again swiftly move on to Gameweek 15 and I will be explaining why each of the players features in my squad selection for this week.


My Gameweek 15 Selection


Goalkeeper

Alex McCarthy
  • Southampton vs Brighton
  • Price: £4.6m
  • Ownership: 5.0%
  • Projected Points: 4.4 Points

McCarthy is my number 1 goalkeeper this Gameweek with the second easiest defensive fixture according to Fantasy Football Fix. With a generous home fixture against Brighton; a team who have netted only a single goal in 3 GW’s, I feel that there is a clean sheet on the cards here.


Defenders

Eric Dier
  • Spurs vs Norwich
  • Price: £4.5m
  • Ownership: 5.4%
  • Projected Points: 4.6 Points

Dier is a very cheap and cheerful entry into the Spurs defence, a player who has accumulated 20 points in the last 3 GW’s which isn’t too shabby at all. With the easiest fixture of the Gameweek, he just had to feature in my squad. If the budget allowed it, I would have gone with Sergio Reguilón (5.2m) but Dier is a great choice nevertheless.

Trent Alexander-Arnold
  • Wolves vs Liverpool
  • Price: £8.0m
  • Ownership: 39.1%
  • Projected Points: 5.7 Points

TAA is the highest-scoring player in FPL this season and it’s fair to say that his high price tag is justified. He has scored 1 goal, provided 7 assists and 7 clean sheets so far this season and offers that attacking threat we all love to see from a defensive player. For me, he’s essential for any FPL Managers squad.

João Pedro Cavaco Cancelo
  • Watford vs Man City
  • Price: £6.7m
  • Ownership: 37.8%
  • Projected Points: 5.3 Points

I still find it very surprising that Cancelo has featured in every Premier League game in a heavily rotated Pep Roulette squad. The Portuguese player is everything you want in a defender and once again; he’s a player who I also feel is essential in any squad.


Midfielders

Heung-Min Son
  • Spurs vs Norwich
  • Price: £10.4m
  • Ownership: 20.4%
  • Projected Points: 6.1 Points

I’ve got high expectations for this player and it wouldn’t surprise me if he gets a double-digit return as they face one of the worst defensive teams in the Premier League (who have already conceded 28 goals), and Spurs face Norwich at home. He scored a goal in their 2-0 victory against Brentford in the previous fixture and I’m positive he will return the goods once again.

Mohamed Salah
  • Wolves vs Liverpool
  • Price: £13.0m
  • Ownership: 72.8%
  • Projected Points: 6.4 Points

How do 27.2% of managers still not own the Egyptian king?

The man is on the form of his life and hasn’t blanked since all the way back in Gameweek 2.

He’s scored 13 goals, provided 9 assists and averages 10.4 points per game, essential? Yes.

Diogo Jota
  • Wolves vs Liverpool
  • Price: £7.9m
  • Ownership: 27.0%
  • Projected Points: 5.6 Points

With Roberto Firmino still out with a thigh injury and Jota leading the Liverpool frontline, he’s a no brainer for me. In the last 3 GW’s he has scored 4 goals and averages at 10 points per game. I feel confident in saying that we will deliver the goods again this weekend.

Raphael Dias Belloli
  • Leeds vs Brentford
  • Price: £6.7m
  • Ownership: 20.6%
  • Projected Points: 5.1 Points

With a tasty home fixture, I’m pretty sure the star Leeds player will get an attacking return. He’s scored 6 goals so far this season and most of these have come against squads in the bottom half of the table. The fixtures get a lot tougher for Leeds after this weekend though but I’m sure he will reward owners in GW15.

Bernardo Mota Veiga de Carvalho e Silva
  • Watford vs Man City
  • Price: £7.4m
  • Ownership: 15.1%
  • Projected Points: 4.9 Points

Bernando Silva has shown great form recently and if I was to go for any Man City midfielder, it would certainly be this man (I’d just fear owning anyone else due to rotation risk). He’s featured in virtually all matches this season and is a great selection not only for this Gameweek alone but in the long-term as Man City have a nice run of upcoming fixtures.


Forwards

Ivan Toney
  • Leeds vs Brentford
  • Price: £6.7m
  • Ownership: 21.8%
  • Projected Points: 3.7 Points

I really hope Toney’s form continues to pick up, he’s scored twice in the last 3 GW’s and I’m sure he can achieve more attacking returns against Leeds. I did have higher expectations for this player as he was the top scorer in Championship last season netting a whopping 31 goals and providing 10 assists, but the Premier League is a completely different ball game.

Allan Saint-Maximin
  • Newcastle vs Burnley
  • Price: £6.9m
  • Ownership: 18.0%
  • Projected Points: 3.9 Points

It was quite disappointing that ASM didn’t get an attacking return against Norwich in GW14 but I’m happy to give him one last chance this week as they face Burnley at home.


Our Bench Picks

Fraser Forster (4.4m)

Simply bench fodder and included as I’ve selected McCarthy as the #1 keeper and Forster is their substitute keeper.

Tino Livramento (4.5m)

Livramento has been a class player this season, but with no clean sheets in the last 3 GW’s, I felt Dier was a better selection for GW15 but he’s decent bench cover that’s for sure.

Javier Manquillo (4.0m)

An enabler more than anything but they have a decent home fixture against Burnley nevertheless.

Sam Greenwood (4.5m)

Another enabler that’s all, simple as that.
