FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE BEST FIXTURES GW16 – FIXTURE EASE SCHEDULE

So, here’s our fantasy premier league best fixtures GW16 article where we analyse the teams with the best 6 and 3 fixtures from GW16. The schedule ranks the teams in terms of easiness of their opponents from an attacking perspective. We also highlight the teams with the best fixtures and make some player suggestions with stats to help you make transfer decisions.

Essentially the team ranked 1 will have the best fixtures and the team ranked 20 will have the hardest fixtures.

Column 1 will focus on the attacking ease of the next 6 fixtures from this gameweek. That gives a rough time frame to look at as you never now how long it will be before you can get someone out of your team. However for a shorter perspective we’ve ranked the next 3 in column 2.

The 2nd schedule takes a longer term view. It analyses the next 6 fixtures also from gameweek 17 and gameweek 18.

The key teams are highlighted in grey

SHORTER TERM FIXTURES

LONGER TERM FIXTURES

MAN UTD

Man Utd have good short and long term fixtures

I’m still in the camp that the only option here is £11.2m forward Ibrahimovic. 4 goals in his last 4, great underlying stats and pen duties are the attractions.  Midfielder Mkhitarayan could be but has picked up an injury. Mata seems to have lost his place having not started the last 2

Crystal Palace (A)
West Brom (A)
Sunderland (H)
Middlesbrough (H)
West Ham (A)
Liverpool (H)

MIDDLESBORO

Middlesboro have good short and long term fixtures

Middlesboro is really a strong defensive team as opposed to an attacking team.

£5.3m mid Ramirez and £6.3m forward Negredo are the only 2 players that come anywhere near to selection on an attacking basis.  However to put it into context Ramirez has returned a goal or assist in 4/13 games (31%) and Negredo 4/14 games (29%).  Even at that budget friendly price is nothing to write home about

Liverpool (H)
Swansea (H)
Burnley (A)
Man Utd (A)
Leicester (H)
Watford (A)

WEST HAM

West Ham have good short term fixtures

For me there’s only £9.1m Payet worth considering.  It’s 2 goals and an assist in his last 3 returning in each of those 3.  He’s mainly an assist based player although a master of the direct free kick and the rest of the set piece repertoire.  The only issue is that there are very few people in the West Ham team who can put the ball in the back of the net once he’s created the chances.  £6.7m mid Antonio also has a good record but for me it’s still a stretch to have a wing back in your team as a midfielder although he did play striker against Liverpool

£6.1m forward Carroll could be a good cheap option it’s just whether he’s ready to start and how much protection rotation he’ll be subject to

However Burnley, Hull and Swansea next is some set of fixtures

Burnley (H)
Hull (H)
Swansea (A)
Leicester (A)
Man Utd (H)
Crystal Palace (H)

SWANSEA

Swansea have good short term fixtures

£7.5m Mid Sigurdsson is the best option here.  Set pieces, a CAM role and penalties make him the ideal midfielder.  £6.1m forward Llorente is an interesting one.  4 goals and an assist in his last 2 starts yet he seems everything but assured of a starting place.  An option depending on how much gametime risk you’re willing to take

West Brom (A)
Middlesbrough (A)
West Ham (H)
Bournemouth (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Arsenal (H)

SPURS

Spurs have good short term fixtures.

Burnley and Hull next is some attraction

£11.2m forward Harry Kane is easily the main option here.  Penalties,  good shooting stats and 5 goals in 5 games since coming back from injury are the draw

Then it’s which midfielder you like.  The goal scoring midfielder who likes to get forward and beyond the strikers in £8.1m Dele Alli or the creative set piece and long range specialist in £8.3m Eriksen

I also like £7.3m mid Son but his place seems less secure than the other 2 and he becomes something of a gametime risk

Hull (H)
Burnley (H)
Southampton (A)
Watford (A)
Chelsea (H)
West Brom (H)

CHELSEA

Chelsea have good short term fixtures

£10.5m mid Hazard and £10.8m forward Costa are the 2 attractions here.  Hazard has been in a bit of a slump with 1 goal in his last 4 while Costa has been on absolute fire returning a goal or assist in 13/15 games and in all of the last 6.  Hazard has pens.  £7.3m mid Pedro has also been an option but with Willian breathing down his neck his place isn’t secure.  Whats more he’s a substitution target with 49 mins and 62 mins in his last 2 starts

Sunderland (A)
Crystal Palace (A)
Bournemouth (H)
Stoke (H)
Spurs (A)
Leicester (A)

ARSENAL

Arsenal have good long term fixtures.

The next 2 fixtures aren’t good but after that they’re attractive.  £11.7m mid but playing as a striker Sanchez is the main target here with 5 goals and an assist in his last 3.  The it’s the set piece creative player who is showing an ability to get forward in £9.6m mid Ozil or the winger come striker of £7.9m mid Walcott.

 Everton (A)
Man City (A)
West Brom (H)
Crystal Palace (H)
Bournemouth (A)
Swansea (A)
