FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE DGW34 DEFENDER TIPS – PLAYER RANKINGS FOR DEFS AND GKS
I’ve firstly ordered the teams by what I think is their defensive strength based on this season’s stats. The stats after that are their:
Trend: This is a new addition. I say whether the ranking has gone up (U) or down (D) or stayed the same (S). Remember this late in the season changes won’t be as regular as earlier in the season.

best cheap secure gametime option and an attacking option so you can compare price.
GK price in as a comparison.
bookies odds for a clean sheet for GW34. I’ve also added in the odds for the 2nd game for the DGWers and added them together for overall odds

DGW/BGW: This will tell you whether the team has a DGW34 or anticipated DGW37 and whether they have a fixture in the blank 35. A positive mention says they do. Hopefully it’s not too hard to understand and the fixtures are below.

Here’s the schedule in it’s normal format . It maybe difficult to make out especially on a phone so if you’d rather have access to the original google spreadsheet click on the link.

TEAM FOCUS AND PLAYER SUGGESTIONS FROM DGW34 TEAMS
I’ve put them in order of their clean sheet prospects for DGW34
I think you’re brave if you’re going in without a Man Utd defensive representative even if I am a little sceptical that De Gea can keep single handedly earning them clean sheets.
However, De Gea is the best choice for me here. Valencia also should be pretty safe. Smalling playing v Man City should mean he is safe but there are 4 fit CBs and an FA Cup semi next weekend
My intention with my wildcard was always to have Alonso in the team and unless you’re relaxed about seeing the guy camped in the opposition penalty area I would try and get him in too. Azpilicueta is probably the next most secure. You can punt on Rudiger at £5.8m or Christensen at £5.3m but both come with risk.
Despite some wobbly form, an FA Cup semi, pretty much being out of the top 4 race a Chelsea defender is definitely desirable for me.
Personally I’m not convinced Maguire is worth the £1.2m outlay over Morgan or Chilwell and for the cheap outlay I would be looking to get one of them in.
Only Vertonghen and GK Lloris are the safe options. The Danny Rose injury has the potential for Davies to play at least both DGW34 fixtures but who knows what’s really going on with the club that leads the way in misinformation
Again for the price I’d be looking to get Lowton in despite their ability to get clean sheets fading somewhat. Unfortunately the GK situation is a little uncertain with Heaton back fit.
Maybe Cedric if you’re desperate.
Brighton and Bournemouth
Personally I would avoid.
