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.
