Fantasygames.com.au is the place to play daily EPL fantasy! Enter a team for this weekend and win your share of guaranteed CASH prize pools!
We have analysed the fixtures and listed the players that can help you score big this week!
Note: All prices are courtesy of Fantasy Games and based on an $80,000 salary cap.
Stoke: They have kept 7 clean sheets since round 8, and playing Crystal Palace back at the Britannia stadium. Go with Jack Butland ($5,000) or Erik Pieters ($5,000) who represent great value.
Manchester United: Our advice is to pack your backline with Man United defenders. They can’t seem to score so you might as well get some joy watching them play and get points for your fantasy team! They’ve conceded 1 goal at home all year and with Norwich visiting Old Trafford a clean sheet is a certainty. Plenty of value given their current injury status to key defenders.
Liverpool: Liverpool have been amazing away from home under Jurgen Klopp and this will continue here. Particularly since Watford have struggled to score at home and boast just 6 goals. Select either full back (Moreno or Clyne) to go for the attacking stats they can produce as well.
High Salary Options
MID – Eden Hazard ($10,500) vs Sunderland: With the sacking of Jose Mourinho, expect all of the heavily criticised players to bounce back and show their true performance levels. At the top of this list, Eden Hazard. From 2014/15 PL Player of the Season to a shadow of his former self. Expect the resurrection of Hazard to start this weekend with a big performance against lowly Sunderland.
MID – Riyad Mahrez ($7,200) vs Everton: Mahrez is currently the in-form player across the league. Strong performances, top class finishing and he’s relishing in a side brimming with confidence. A must-pick.
FWD – Wayne Rooney ($10,000) vs Norwich: To say Rooney hasn’t been performing this season, would be a massive understatement. He seems to have lost that trademark desire and hunger to score when in front goal. Needing all 3 points, expect Wayne to finally do just that. He has scored 3 goals in his last 2 matches against Norwich at Old Trafford.
Best Value Picks
MID – Georginio Wijnaldum ($6,800) vs Aston Villa: Having beaten Liverpool and Tottenham, fans seem to be optimistic heading into a crucial run of home fixtures (4 from their next 6). Wijnaldum has scored 7 goals and 1 assist at St James’ Park and we see this form continuing when Aston Villa visit this weekend.
FWD – Andy Carroll ($6,400) vs Swansea: Carroll has dominated this fixture over recent seasons, scoring 4 goals and 3 assists against Swansea. Despite West Ham’s poor recent form, Swansea’s defensive record (1 clean sheet in 14 matches) indicates Carroll can fire West Ham to a much-needed win.
