fantasy premier league best fixtures GW11 – the fixture ease schedule

Just to clarify this was written before Mondays game of Spurs v Man City

We’ve also added good fixture clumps at the end for you to be aware of before transfers in and out.  There’s also another new feature.  Hunting out the not so fabulous 4.

An introduction

My intention at the moment is to take the fixture difficulty ranking from the Official FPL site with some slight adjustments. That schedule doesn’t differentiate between attack and defence and is an overall ranking. You will see their fixture difficulty when you look at a player in detail on the FPL site.

The schedule below uses the official rankings to rank them from easiest at the top to hardest at the bottom. The order of the teams is for GW11-16. The figure in the right hand column is the ranking from from GW11-13

So here I give attacking and defensive player suggestions for players with good 6 week and 3 week fixtures. This week it’s Brighton, Huddersfield, Leicester and Cardiff.  I’ve also added on West Ham as their excellent run is only distorted by Man City in the middle

Brighton

With Pascal Gross injured the only attacking option for me is Glenn Murray.  The wingers in Jahanbakhsh and Izquierdo have yet to produce any stats of note and are only a few starts in.  Hughton’s surprise dropping of Knockaert also doesn’t bode well for selection continuity.

£6.5m Fwd Murray has scored 6 goals and 0 assists in 8 starts plus 2 as sub at a PP90 of 5.6. A big question will be whether he retains penalty duties when Gross returns to the team.  That could be in the near future but as ever with these things the clubs give pretty unhelpful information.

Defensively I’d go for Duffy at £4.6m although Dunk at £4.4 if you fall just short cash wise.  The £4.5m GK Ryan is also an option

Everton (A)
Cardiff (A)
Leicester (H)
Huddersfield (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Burnley (A)

Huddersfield

No attacking options here for me.  Huddersfield have scored the least goals so far this season and have have the lowest xG.  Only Newcastle and Brighton have taken less shots.

Defensively it’s much the same.  Schindler is cheap at £4.3m but even at that price their are better options in other teams

Fulham (H)
West Ham (H)
Wolves (A)
Brighton (H)
Bournemouth (A)
Arsenal (A)

Leicester

Puel relives his life at Southampton where he decides to bench the only guy in the team who can score goals in Vardy.

So until Vardy starts again it looks like Maddison is the only attacking option.  Maddison is also the only constant as he chops and changes selection to no particular end.

£7.0m Mid Maddison has scored 3 goals and 2 assists in 10 starts at a PP90 of 5.6.  The dropping of Vardy if permanent would probably give him penalty duties.  He already has set piece duties with Maguire to aim at.  His underlying stats are pretty ordinary, in particular his goal threat, is the negative

Cardiff (A)
Burnley (H)
Brighton (A)
Watford (H)
Fulham (A)
Spurs (H)

Cardiff

Warnock is another who has chopped and changed his team but for me there are 2 current options who stand out like a sore thumb.  They are midfielders Murphy and Paterson both who’ve started the last 4.

£5.2m Mid Paterson has scored 2 goals and 0 assists in 6 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 4.4.  He’s played the last 3 games as CF and scored in the last 2.

£4.8m Mid Murphy  has scored 2 goals and 0 assists in 6 starts plus 2 as sub at a PP90 of 4.5.  He’s started the last 4 and scored his 2 goals in those games

Defensively Cardff are 19th in goals conceded, 17th in xG conceded and 14th in shots conceded per game.  Morrison at £4.8m is the attacking option and a pretty decent one at that but he’s not a great price.  Bamba is the best of the £4.5m options.

Leicester (H)
Brighton (H)
Everton (A)
Wolves (H)
West Ham (A)
Southampton (H)

West Ham

There’s no doubt the key player here is forward Arnautovic.  The other is a  punt really on Anderson

£7.0m Fwd Arnautovic has scored 4 goals and 1 assist in 8 starts plus 0 as sub at a PP90 of 5.4

£6.8m Mid Anderson has scored 1 goal and 1 assist in 10 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 3.3.  I did say he was a fixture punt.

There’s also £4.5m mid Diangana who’s started the last 2 as a RM if you’re looking for something different on the bench

Defensively £4.4m CB Balbuena looks a good attacking option.

Burnley (H)
Huddersfield (A)
Man City (H)
Newcastle (A)
Cardiff (H)
Crystal Palace (H)
Fulham (A)
Watford (H)
Southampton (A)
Burnley (A)
Brighton (H)

Some good short term future fixture clumps

Use these to plan transfers in and watchouts on transfers out

Watford

GW11 Newcastle (A)
GW12 Southampton (A)

Think about Pereya or Deeney (if fit) or Deulofeu. Femenia in defence.

Wolves

GW13 Huddersfield (H)
GW14 Cardiff (A)

Think about Jimenez. Doherty in defence

Arsenal

GW16 Huddersfield (H)
GW17 Southampton (A)
GW18 Burnley (H)

Think about Lacazette, Aubameyang and Ozil. Monreal in defence if fit.

  1. Thank you for a great article once again.

    I´ve currently got Patricio and Hamer as keepers, with 0.5 in the bank and one FT. Considering swapping Patricio for Ryan or upgrading Hamer to Ryan.

    What are your thoughts? Is it worth it. Patricio is running in to some difficult fixtures, and Ryan in to some great ones.

    My stats: 661pts, OR 9k and Aguero still to play against Totteringham.

    Thanks in advance. Cheers from Norway

  2. Ryan is going to asian cup from jan-feb… I would suggest you have a playing backup (not hamer) if you intend to keep him long term. Maybe got for the fab at west ham.

    • Thanks. Good tip. He has also been on my monitor. Allthough I think I´ll keep Hamer to have some funds in the bank for future upgrades.
