Fantasy Premier League

Read up on all our prematch fantasy picks and post match reviews related to the Fantasy Premier League game.

    Fantasy Premier League | GW35 (FH)

    This is a shorter game week with only 12 teams participating and some other teams involved in FA cup action. Given also the congestion of fixtures in the past couple of weeks, it's also fair to say that you have to be wary of any squad rotation that might be taking place. We focus more on teams that have something to fight for as it is more likely that they will field their strongest squad to try to achieve their targets. Given the shorter list of games, we will also recommend those that have not utilised their Free Hit option to exercise that this week as they can then pick a new squad just to accommodate this week's fixtures and revert to the norm from next week onwards.

    Togga Perfect XI | PXI – GW35

    While FPL is having a double game week, it’s going to be a separate game week for Togga PXI, so remember to set your squad before the BHA – Spurs fixture. Newly crowned champions Man City will be in carnival mood and they will expect to celebrate success with a handsome victory. Elsewhere, Spurs and Man United will look to bounce back from defeat to secure a Top 4 finish. Meanwhile, Arsenal has one eye on Europa semis and nothing much to play for in the league, so we suggest to stay out of their fixture this week.

    While there are ten fixtures in this Togga GW, do note that Huddersfield do not play and Burnley (vs Che <H>; vs Stk <A>) has a double gameweek

    =====

     

    Goalkeepers

    1. Ederson (MCI) – He will look to keep a clean sheet to celebrate title success at home, but do keep a lookout for possible rotation.
    2. Pope, Nick (BUR) – Pope looks set to be the Clarets' number one for the rest of the season as they push for a Europa spot.

    Defenders

    1. Maguire, Harry (LEI) – Leicester will be playing with little pressure, although clean sheet is hard to come by for Leicester, Maguire is capable of chipping in with a goal.
    2. Kompany, Vincent (MCI) – Captaining the newly crowned champions, we smell a headed goal from set piece.
    3. Baines, Leighton (EVE) – Newcastle has secured top flight status so we expect Everton to finally get a positive result.
    4. Long, Kevin (BUR) – With Ben Mee out, Long will be his replacement
    5. Vertonghen, Jan (TOT) – No. 3 in PXI scoring chart for defenders
    6. Aurier/Davies (TOT) – Spurs will look to bounce back in style. If Aurier doesn’t start, Ben Davies will be an alternative

    Midfielders

    1. Zaha, Wilfried (CRY) – Main striker while Benteke is injured and he is in red hot form.
    2. De Bryune, Kevin (MCI) – Will be eager to prove his influence and stake a claim to the PFA player of the year crown
    3. Gudmundsson, Johann Berg (BUR) – Worthy differential to have this DGW
    4. Hazard, Eden (CHE) – Still the mainstay in Chelsea squad. Capable of good attacking points even if he don’t score
    5. Mahrez, Riyah (LEI) – Saints are struggling defensively, he should create many chances in this game
    6. Eriksen, Christian (TOT) – Set piece specialist and consistent for Spurs this season.

    Forwards

    1. Vardy, Jamie (LEI) – At least worth a goal or two in this game.
    2. Kane, Harry (TOT) – Lagging 5 goals behind Salah for Golden Boot but don’t write him off just yet. He is capable of hitting hat tricks.
    3. Wood, Chris (BUR) – Sensational form, 5 goals in last 5 games

    Fantasy Premier League | GW34 (WC)

    The first mega double gameweek is upon us. This week, a total of eight teams will play twice as the Premier League reaches its crescendo, at least in FPL terms. We have decided to play a wildcard this week for the purpose of the article, noting that we had previously advised to utilise the wildcard a week before this, so that other chips like Triple Captain or Bench Boost can be played this week.

    Fantasy Premier League | GW33

    This week’s article is brought to you by FF Physio. In the previous week, it was mentioned in FF Titan’s article that Burnley is the only team that will be playing 3 games over GW34 & GW35. As for me, I’m planning to use my Bench Boost Chip in GW34 in order to make full use of the teams that are playing 2 games. But this squad will only serve you well if you still have your Free Hit chip to use in GW35, so that you can still have a playing squad of 11. With that in mind, here are my recommendations for your WildCard Chip this week.

    Fantasy Premier League | GW32

    The announcement of the fixtures placed in the double gameweek 34 (DGW34) caught some FPL managers by surprise. Only Burnley has a DGW34 and a fixture in gameweek 35, which has made Burnley players very attractive if your FPL team has no Free Hit chip. In addition, most managers who still has their 2nd wildcard will either look to use it this gameweek or next gameweek to bring in players in preparation of the upcoming DGWs.  

    With that, here are our recommendations on who you can look to bring in.

    FPL: How to use your remaining FPL chips

    Fantasy Premier League | Using your remaining Chips

     

    The season is coming to an end soon and we are into the final laps of the long race. 9 more Game Weeks remain and many fantasy managers are racking their brains either trying to stave off their closest rivals or catching up to the league leader. We hope that you still have some of your Chips left as they are your best weapons against your closest mates. This week, we look at the best ways to make use of these Chips in the coming GWs.

     

     

    Fixture Rescheduling

     

    Many fantasy managers may already know this but some might still be in the dark. GW31 only features 4 games and 8 teams in the PL as the rest are involved in a round of the FA cup.

    These are the games that are scheduled to go ahead:

    • Liverpool vs Watford
    • Stoke vs Everton
    • Bournemouth vs West Brom
    • Huddersfield vs Crystal Palace

    At the time of writing, we also know that Liverpool & Man City are already in the QFs of the Champions League. Man Utd and Chelsea have their ties hanging in the balance while Spurs have crashed out. Arsenal is also in the next round of the Europa League competition. For those who qualify, they will definitely have to negotiate the midweek games between GW32/33/34, thus there won’t be a double GW for GW32 & 33. For those who manage to go further in their respective competitions, they won’t have a double GW in GW35 & 36. The FA cup SFs is scheduled for 21 Apr, which will affect GW35.

    As of now, the fixtures that will definitely go ahead are those stated below:

    • Everton vs Newcastle
    • Stoke vs Burnley
    • Watford vs Crystal Palace
    • West Brom vs Liverpool
    • Arsenal vs West Ham

     

    Depending on the sides that go through, a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 fixtures will be affected.

     

     

    Free Hit

     

    GW31 will be the best time to use your FH chip as you will want to have a squad full of players from the 8 teams that are still playing, but also for your squad to revert back to your original one for GW32.

    This is our recommended squad:

    • Begovic
    • Hennessey
    • van Aanholt
    • Schindler
    • Zouma
    • Pieters
    • Ake
    • Mane
    • Mooy
    • Salah (Captain)
    • Shaqiri
    • Milivojevic
    • Firmino (Vice-Captain)
    • King
    • Mounie

     

    Triple Captain

    As of now, the rescheduled fixtures from GW31 have no fixed date yet. Nevertheless, we know that the likes of Spurs, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal & Man Utd will have double GWs.

    As such, it’s wise to keep your Triple Captain for that week and use them on the likes of Kane, Aguero, Hazard, Aubameyang, Lukaku, Sanchez etc. Who to pick will depend on the upcoming fixtures but Aguero will most likely be a rotation risk as City will likely have wrapped the title by then and Jesus is fit again.

     

    WildCard

    If you have not used your Wildcard by now, I would advise that you use it as soon as possible, or one GW before the next scheduled double GW. Our advice to use it as soon as possible is because it is still not known when the double GW will be. If you wait till then to use it, it might be too late to help you catch up on your rivals. On top of that, some of the better players to pick might have nothing to play for by then. You can refer to our previous article on the players to swap for if you plan to overhaul your squad right now. Our advice to use the WC one GW before the double GW stems from the fact that we want you to overhaul your squad to bring in those players that can help you the most in the double GW. It’s best to use the Triple Captain Chip or the Bench Boost Chip during the double GW. As you cannot use 2 Chips in one GW, you have to use your WC the week before the double GW and bring in those players one week early. But the WC is best combined with the Bench Boost Chip as you need to bring in many players who are playing 2 games while the Triple Captain Chip is used on just one player.

     

    Bench Boost

    The same strategy applies for the Bench Boost Chip. Use it during the double GW. There will likely be 2 GWs with double games for some teams. Our advice is for you to use the Bench Boost Chip in the week with more teams playing 2 games and use the Triple Captain Chip in the GW with lesser teams playing 2 games. This is because you need to have more players to choose from for your Bench Boost Chip as you cannot have more than 3 players from the same team in your squad. On the other hand, you only need to choose one good captain for your Triple Captain Chip.

     

    Feel free to post your comments below or challenge us. You can send in your squad and ask for feedback. We would even welcome anyone who thinks they are good enough to challenge us.
