After a long season, we are finally the penultimate week of this season’s fantasy game. This gameweek sees half the teams involved in a double game week and whilst this makes it very attractive for fantasy players to use their wildcard if they haven’t done so or their bench boost, it is also important to note that we expect some squad rotation as well.
With that, here’s our recommendation for Gameweek 37, with all the players chosen being involved in 2 games (DGW). The trick this week will be to find sufficient budget in your squad to accommodate them all!
- DGW – Caballero, Willy (MCI, 4.7m) – With Bravo out for the season and Man City having 2 home games this week, he’s a very attractive choice.
- DGW –Courtois, Thibaut (CHE, 5.9m) – Another one with 2 games against teams with not much to play for, you will expect Chelsea to be able to wrap up their title this game week.
- DGW –Cech, Petr (ARS, 5.3m) – A game against relegated Sunderland and another against mid table Stoke, Cech has a good chance of a clean sheet at least in one of the 2 games.
- DGW – Koscielny, Laurent (ARS, 6.1m) – Similar to last game week, he’s still a good choice for this one.
- DGW – Monreal, Nacho (ARS, 5.8m) –With Gabriel rested in the last game week, Monreal is more likely to continue to start and is also a cheaper alternative, but for both Arsenal defenders, the risk of rotation is higher this week given that they will be playing their 4th game in 2 weeks.
- DGW – Walker, Kyle (TOT, 6.3m) – Spurs has 2 tough fixtures against Man U and Leicester, but we expect them to do enough to allow them to finish 2nd.
- DGW – Cahill, Gary (CHE, 6.7m) – If your budget permits, then Chelsea players are attractive to take given that they are playing against mid-table teams. Cahill is unlikely to be rested as the captain of the squad.
- DGW – Alonso, Marcus (CHE, 6.8m) – Similar to Cahill, Alonso has also not been rested much this season and so looks like a good bet to start both games.
- DGW – Otamendi, Nicolas (MCI, 5.9m) – Scored once and kept a clean sheet in his last outing. He seems likely to start both games for City who wants to hold on to their 3rd spot.
- DGW – Sanchez, Alexis (ARS, 11.6m) – He has not picked up much fantasy points of late, but with Ozil, seems to be getting sufficient game time and you will not count against Sanchez to go on a barren spell for too long.
- DGW – Ozil, Mesut (ARS, 9.5m) – Similar to Sanchez, you will expect Wenger to not rest his key players as much in his quest for the final Champions League spot.
- DGW – De Bruyne, Kevin (MCI, 10.4m) – Pep Guardiola has a tendency to rotate his squad. As such, the most likely candidate in midfield seems to be De Bruyne.
- DGW – Hazard, Eden (CHE, 10.6m) – Probably one of those that’s unlikely to be rested, so will be one to miss at your own risk.
- DGW – Eriksen, Christian (TOT, 8.9m) –Whilst Spurs have 2 tough fixtures, Eriksen been very consistent this season in being involved whenever they do well.
- DGW – Albrighton, Marc (LEI, 4.9m) – An alternative pick. Having given all expensive players to consider due to the DGW, it can be said that Craig Shakespeare has managed to reinvigorate last year’s Champion into winning again and Albrighton has been consistently in the squad for the past few games.
- DGW – Defoe, Jermaine (SUN, 7.5m) – The cheap alternative. Despite Sunderland confirming their relegation a few weeks ago, Defoe is still continuing to score goals. He seems likely to end up somewhere else in the Premier League as there will definitely be teams that desires his potency in front of goal despite his age.
- DGW – Costa, Diego (CHE, 10.4m) – Still the second highest scoring fantasy striker, so if he’s fit and Chelsea has 2 games to play, you don’t want to risk missing him in your team.
- DGW – Vardy, Jamie (LEI, 9.9m) – Definitely the most in form striker at the moment, he’s also one not to be missed.
- DGW – Jesus, Gabriel (MCI, 8.9m) – Back to full fitness, with a goal and an assist to show in his last outing, he seems likely to start even if Aguero is to return from his groin injury.
- DGW – Kane, Harry (TOT, 11.7m) – As with Eriksen, you don’t want to miss out on Kane given that he’s the second highest scorer in the league.
