The FPL Way Value Picks for GW38

Posted by: @FantasySilva

Here are The FPL Way Value Picks for Gameweek 38; the deadline for this one is on Sunday 23rd May at 14:30. Emotional times now as this will be the last of the value picks for this season.

Anyway, with the Value Picks, we basically pick a side of 15 players (all with a low budget) to help you with your transfers should you need to get a budget player into your squad. This weeks team comes out at only 75.0 million (all-time record). It’s the last week guys, and to be honest, looking at these picks, squad value doesn’t mean anything anymore and some of these guys could definitely be worth a punt depending on your overall rank or position in your mini-leagues.


The FPL Way XV – Who Are The Best Value FPL Players To Own For GW38?

We will be going through all the fixtures for our selected value picks and providing reasoning as to why these budget players could potentially prove to be better than some of the premium selections. That being, said, let’s get right into this…

Fulham vs Newcastle

For Fulham we have Alphonse Areola (4.5m) in net. Although it’s been a while since Fulham have kept a clean sheet, we know what they are capable of and with a generous home fixture to Newcastle, we can hope they finish their season a high before they return back to the Championship Division.

On the other side, we do have Joseph Willock (4.8m). His form recently has been superb and he now seems to be a regular starter for the club. With a goal in each game in their last fixture 3 fixtures, would you be surprised if he continued his form and bagged another in his last game?

Leeds vs West Brom

For Leeds we have Raphinha (5.5m) and Patrick Bamford (6.5m). Leeds have scored 9 goals in their last 3 fixtures with Raphinha providing 2 assists and Bamford providing 2 goals and an assist. These guys gel well together and we can expect this to be quite a high scoring game who else is more reliable to get on the score sheet for Leeds than these boys…

For West Brom we have selected Matheus Pereira (5.4m). What a hell of a season this Brazillian star has had, with 11 goals and 7 assists, you wouldn’t think he was part of a relegated club right? We’re not going to lie, we’d be surprised if this fella stays with the club when they return to the Championship division, but we know for sure he will want to end his season on an all-time high, that’s for sure!

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Just the one player here with Nathaniel Phillips (4.1m). For a Liverpool defender at this price, how could you not have him? On top of this, he’s even scored a goal and provided an assist in the last 4 Gameweeks and has accumulated 25 points in that time. Averaging at 6.25 points per game, this guy was a really easy selection for the squad.

Sheffield Utd vs Burnley

We have two picks for Burnley in this weeks value picks with Matthew Lowton (4.4m) and Chris Wood (6.5m). Well, on paper, we can expect a clean sheet for Lowton facing the bottom of the league. Maybe even a cheeky assist since he’s provided 8 this season so far. Wood has had a great 4th quarter to the season and we’re pretty confident we will see some attacking returns from this man. We could even hope he repeats GW33 with his hatty where they faced Wolves away.

West Ham vs Southampton

For West Ham, we have gone for Vladimir Coufal (4.8m) and Tomas Soucek (5.2m). Honestly, we think West Ham have more to fight for here and we could well see a clean sheet. We all know what Soucek is capable of and hopefully, he will also provide some attacking returns. With 10 goals and 2 assists this season for Soucek, we can see this being increased after this match.

Leicester vs Spurs

Finally, our last pick in our starting XI is Kelechi Iheanacho (6.2m). You remember right? The guy that has been a dream player to have since GW26. Yes, the Leicester fixtures have not been great and playing Spurs isn’t exactly the greatest fixture. Well, this Nigerian star is something special and we really wouldn’t be surprised at all for some attacking returns from him in this fixture.


Bench Picks

This week, we won’t go through all the bench players individually, well to be fair, they have all featured here a fair few times so far this season. All four players should start and either one could get some nice points in this final Gameweek. Great bench fodder, great value, and great picks to upgrade your team elsewhere if you need to.

The FPL Way Value Picks for BGW36

Posted by: @FPLKarlll

Here are The FPL Way Value Picks for Blank Gameweek 36 which commences on Friday 14th May at 18:30.

This is our third edition of the Value Picks selection; where we pick a side of 15 players (all with a low budget). This is to help you with your transfers should you need to get a budget player into your squad. This week’s team comes out at only 81.1 million.

After last week’s Double Gameweek, we find ourselves yet again at the mercy of another Blank Gameweek. So don’t forget to have Chilwell, Ihenancho, Saka, and Fernandes playing left-back on the bench this week as we’ll be without our Chelsea, Leicester, Arsenal, and United assets. However, luckily you’ve come across the infinite wisdom that is The FPL Way so hopefully, our value picks can aid you in making the right moves to bring on an almighty hail of green arrows in these closing weeks.

Everton (H) vs Sheffield Utd

Everton vs Sheffield presents a huge opportunity for Everton assets hence our decision to triple up with Pickford (4.8M), Holgate (4.8M), and Sigurdsson (6.9M). We’re feeling they will be able to secure clean sheet points in this fixture and with Sigurdsson on penalties these are pretty safe value picks to hold onto. The week following the Toffees, they will go up against Wolves so their defensive assets may be of high value the next two game weeks.

Leeds (A) vs Burnley

Patrick Bamford (6.3M) had the final say with a penalty at Elland road the last time these clubs face. After finding himself on the scoresheet this GW, this takes his league goal tally to 15 goals so far in the Premier League. With the season coming to an end, I’m sure the Leeds forward has a goal or two left in him. Coming in at a price point of 6.3M, the Leeds striker is a no-brainer in any squad

Liverpool (A) vs WBA

Diogo Jota (7.0M), unfortunately, missed Liverpool’s last game vs WBA due to injury and although he has found himself blanking since GW30 he’s maintaining 3.65 Shots per 90. The Portuguese man’s quick dribbling and excellent passing could be what Liverpool require to break-down WBA’s low block.

Crystal Palace (H) vs Aston Villa

Eze (5.8M) and Mitchell (3.8M) could be two players to look at with Eze providing owners with 25 points over the past 3 game weeks. In addition to this, Aston Villa hasn’t had a clean sheet since GW27 Eze’s involvement so we may see Palace attacking returns, especially since the Villa side appears to be leaking goals recently.

Burnley (H) vs Leeds

Chris Wood (6.4M)  has been on a man on a mission as of late blanking only once since GW27 with half of Wood’s 132 FPL points this entire season coming since GW27. Somethings clearly in the water of at turf moor and with Ihenancho not playing this week. Wood is the ideal value pick replacement.

James Tarkowski (5.3M) on the other hand has also seen his fair share of returns collecting 21 points the past 4 game weeks and picking up 3 bonus points after an immense performance against Fulham, Tarkowski may be due for another colossal performance to avenge their earlier loss to wolves this season.

Southampton (H) vs Fulham

James Ward Prowse (5.9) has gained 19 points over the last 4 Gameweeks and now have Danny Ings to add to the Saint’s firepower; it’s likely he has more in store. The English international will also be eager to earn his place on the flight to the Euros this summer and with his last 3 fixtures being against Fulham, West Ham, and Leeds he may just prove his point.

Manchester City (A) vs Newcastle

Gündogan (5.9M) has gone missing since GW28 but due to a lack of minutes played rather than through effort. With an all-English Champions League final and the Premier League secured, this could see Pep rotating starters. This allows them to play more freely which could see Gündogan pressing higher up the pitch where he was able to achieve 12 goals so far this season.

Tottenham (H) vs Wolves

Eric Dier (4.6M) has improved massively under the defensive coaching work of former manager Jose Mourinho. They face Wolves who are a side still lacking firepower so a clean sheet is possibly on the cards for the English international.

Bench Picks

Philips (4.1M)

Philips returned from injury and put up another aerial masterclass in Liverpool’s clean sheet victory against the Saints. He was accompanied by the young Rhys Williams facing a pacy Saints side with Che Adam’s and Walcott. Despite these hurdles, Philips still managed to bring those 6 points to his fantasy owners. The only reason he’s featured on our bench is due to the uncertainty of Liverpool’s CB partnership with Kabak not spotted in training ahead of the Northwest derby. Otherwise, he would be a nailed Value pick starter for sure.

Mitchell (3.8M)

If you’re struggling to find funds to make a big transfer then Mitchell is the go-to defender to free up some much-needed funds. Especially with his low cost and likeliness to start. His clean sheet record is definitely a gamble, however, if you’re freeing up money to get a big player whose output might cover Mitchell’s, then he would be ideal.

Fabio Silva (5.2M)

Silva has a goal and assist in his last two games and seems to be picking up steam ahead of his trip against Spurs. He is definitely worth watching to see if this newfound form may translate into the following season.

Illan Meslier (4.7M)

Whilst Meslier managed to keep a clean sheet again Burnley at Elland Road. Burnley has managed to find the net in their last 9 games with no signs of slowing down. However, with the reaming fixtures of Southampton and West Brom, buying Meslier to bench him for the last two GW’s could be ideal to go all out for the rest of the season.

The FPL Way Value Picks – DGW35

Posted by: @FantasySilva

Here are The FPL Way Value Picks for Double Gameweek 35 which commences on Friday 7th May at 18:30.

This is our second edition of Value Picks selections, we basically pick a side of 15 players (all with a low budget) to help you with your transfers should you need to get a budget player into your squad. This weeks team comes out at only 76.9 million.

This week it’s a Double Gameweek where the following teams will play twice, do remember, however, that four of these teams will have a Blank Gameweek 36). On top of this, we also have the fixture for Man Utd v Liverpool to be confirmed, and there are already talks that this could be rescheduled into GW35 but this is yet to be confirmed. Here are the Double fixtures as they currently stand:



The FPL Way XV – Who Are The Best Value FPL Players To Own For DGW35?

We will be going through all the fixtures for our selected value picks and providing reasoning as to why these budget players could add potential value for the upcoming Double Gameweek.

Leicester: Newcastle (H) | Man Utd (A)

Kelechi Iheanacho (6.3m) is our pick for the Foxes and he was without a doubt the easiest selection for the team. For his low price tag, current form and a very likely favourite for captaincy, this was a no brainer. Since GW26, Iheanacho has only blanked once, and within that time he has scored 9, assisted twice and amassed a whopping 73 points!

Crystal Palace: Sheffield Utd (H) | Southampton (A)

For the Eagles, we have selected Joel Ward (4.3m) and Christian Benteke (5.5m). Palace has the most favourable fixtures this Gameweek. In the reverse fixture for the two games, Palace kept a clean sheet in each game hence why we went for a defender (Ward). Although Benteke isn’t in too great of form recently, if he’s going to add some attacking returns to his tally, it will no doubt be in these fixtures.

Southampton: Liverpool (A) | Crystal Palace (H)

Our pick for The Saints is James Ward-Prowse (5.8m). With Ings out of the squad, Ward-Prowse will be on both set-pieces and penalties. He has scored 8 goals and provided 6 assists so far this season. If there is one person that will get some attacking returns for Southampton, it will no doubt be this fella!

Aston Villa: Man Utd (H) | Everton (H)

We have doubled up on Villa players including Bertrand Traoré (5.8m), and Ollie Watkins (6.5m). With two home fixtures and a team that has scored 9 goals in the last 5 GW’s, we feel that there will be some attacking returns. In the last five Gameweeks, Watkins has scored three goals and assisted twice and Traoré has assisted twice in this time as well.

Everton: West Ham (A) | Aston Villa (A)

We only have the one pick for The Toffees with Jordan Pickford (4.8m). We’re expecting at least one clean sheet and we feel he will add value to your team in upcoming Gameweeks as well. Everton will face Sheffield United (H) in G36 and Wolves (H) in GW37 which will make him a great keeper for these matches as well.

Man Utd: Aston Villa (H) | Leicester (H)

Our picks for Man Utd are Victor Lindelöf (4.8m) and Scott McTominay (4.9m). Both players are regular starters for The Devils and with two home fixtures and the price tag they have, we simply couldn’t ignore these guys.

Arsenal: West Brom (H) | Chelsea (A)

For Arsenal, we have Rob Holding (4.3m) and Bukayo Saka (5.1m). Although Holding didn’t play in GW34, that was because David Luiz started in his place. David Luiz actually picked up a hamstring injury in this game so we feel Holding could be back in the starting XI for these matches. Saka is also a regular starter for the team and hopefully, he can bag some attacking returns, especially in the West Brom fixture.

Our Bench Picks

Vicente Guaita (4.8m)

The choice between Pickford and Guaita was a difficult one. Although Palace has the easiest of fixtures, we benched Guaita as we didn’t want to double up on Palace defence. Guaita could potentially get some nice points in these fixtures so he most certainly is a great pick.

Jorge Luiz Frello Filho (Jorginho) (4.7m)

For his low price tag and a potential starter for both games, we just had to include this guy. He has scored 6 goals and provided 2 assists so far this season.

Ezri Konsa Ngoyo (4.7m)

Aston Villa doesn’t have the best of defensive fixtures but they do play at home twice. They also benefit from playing in the Blank Gameweek 36 playing Crystal Palace.

Jack Stephens (4.6m)

Southampton has some decent fixtures coming up and also don’t blank in Gameweek 36. There is potential for one clean sheet in the upcoming double!

The FPL Way Value Picks – GW34

Posted by: @FantasySilva

Here is The FPL Way Value Picks for Gameweek 34 which commences on Friday 30th April 18:30.

This is our first edition of Value Picks which we will be doing on a weekly basis from now on. Basically, we pick a side of 15 players (all on a low budget) to help you with your transfers should you need some budget players in your team. This team comes out at only 79.8 million.

Southampton v Leicester

Our first pick is no other than the man who is in top form; that is Kelechi Iheanacho (6.2m). With 4 goals and 1 assist in the last 3 Gameweeks and bagging himself 4 bonus points in these games, this was simply a no brainer!

Crystal Palace v Man City

In this fixture, we have the young star Phil Foden (6.0m). In the last two Gameweeks where he played the full 90 minutes, he has accumulated 20 points with 1 goal and 3 assists. Should Pep start the player, this could well be a very nice differential pick as well with only 7.6% ownership.

Brighton v Leeds

For Brighton, we have selected Joël Veltman (4.4m). Brighton has managed to keep two clean sheets in the last 3 Gameweeks. The clean sheets actually came from two top sides; Everton and Chelsea. Could Brighton make it 3 out of 4 clean sheets? We believe so, hence we have him in our starting XI.

For Leeds, we have the star striker Patrick Bamford (6.5m). Although his current form hasn’t been the best in recent Gameweeks, we have a feeling this guy could bounce back and it could well be in this Gameweek. For his value and the fact that he has scored 14 goals and 10 assists this season, we just had to include him in the team.

Newcastle v Arsenal

We have two picks for this game; Rob Holding (4.2m) and Bukayo Saka (5.1m). With quite a few Arsenal players out with injury, it’s very likely both of these players will start. For only 4.2 million, Holding is a very good pick, not only for this week but also next week when they face West Brom at home. The same applies with Saka, but hopefully, this man will get an attacking return as well.

Spurs v Sheffield Utd

Our only selection here is Eric Dier (4.6m). This game has a clean sheet written all over it on paper. For the low price and the fact he has become a regular starter again, we just had to select him for the team. Spurs have some very nice upcoming fixtures as well which boosts his value.

West Brom v Wolves

Our only pick here is Matheus Pereira (5.5m). After the shocking 4-0 home defeat for Wolves in GW33, we feel there will definitely be some goals in this fixture. Pereira has accumulated 4 goals and 2 assists in the last 4 Gameweeks. For that reason, if there is someone who will get some attacking returns, it will most likely be this geezer!

Burnley v West Ham

For Burnley, we have selected Chris Wood (6.3m). In the last 6 Gameweeks, Wood has scored 6 and got 3 assists. 3 of the goals came in the last fixture against Wolves. With his great form, this was an easy pick for us.

For West Ham, we have the current star of the show and one of the best loans in the Premier History; the man; Jesse Lingard (6.6m). Since joining West Ham, he has managed a point average of 8.3 points. This is a whole 1 point higher than the second-highest average by Harry Kane. Lingard has managed 5 goals and 3 assists in the last 5 Gameweeks and we’re pretty confident he will continue his great form.

Our Bench Picks

Sam Johnstone (4.5m)

Johnstone has accumulated 23 points in the last 3 Gameweeks and will be playing an inconsistent Wolves team. Following Wolves 4-0 home defeat to Burnley, this could work out in this fellas favour.

Youri Tielemans (6.4m)

Leicester is in incredible form at the moment, and as a nailed on player; we just had to include him in the team. Providing 6 goals and 3 assists so far this season, he could potentially increase this tally in the next match.

Luke Ayling (4.4m)

Leeds managed to keep a clean sheet in their last fixture against Man Utd. They also have very nice fixtures for the remainder of the season so we feel this is a very strong pick.

Vladimir Coufal (4.7m)

Coufal has provided 4 assists in the last 4 Gameweeks. With the potential of a clean sheet and adding another attacking return to his tally, this was a confident pick for us.
