fantasy premier league best fixtures GW6 – the fixture ease schedule

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 GW6-11. The figure in the right hand column is the ranking from from GW6-8

So here are attacking and defensive player suggestions for the following teams. That is  Man Utd, Bournemouth, Leicester and Arsenal.

The stats will be fairly basic and from last season with some commentary about the first 5 weeks of this season for this season thrown in.

Man Utd

£11.0m fwd Lukaku scored 16 goals and 7 assists in 33 starts plus 1 as sub for a points per 90 mins of 5.1 in 17/18.  A fantastic start to the season with 4 goals in his 4 starts plus 1 sub appearance on the back of some great underlying stats.  Also got 5 bonus points as well which is a plus after the problems getting them last season.  His PPM is a respectable 5.8

£10.2m mid Sanchez scored 9 goals and 10 assists in 29 starts plus 2 as sub for Arsenal and Man Utd last season for a points per 90 mins of 5.4 in 17/18.  Just 2 assists in 4 starts plus 1 game as sub. His PPM is a dismal 3.3 and he just has been no goal threat at all.

£6.8m mid Lingard scored 8 goals and 6 assists in 20 starts plus 13 as sub for a points per 90 mins of 6.4 in 17/18.  3 starts 3 blanks.  Underlying stats have been ok but not up to the dizzy heights of last season.  Two 70 odd minute substitutions in those 3 games as well which is his main problem.

£8.2m mid Pogba scored 6 goals and 13 assists in 25 starts plus 2 as sub for a points per 90 mins of 5.0 in 17/18. 5 games 2 penalties and 3 blanks in the last 3.  An ordinary PPM of 4.6.  GW5 was his first decent game.  Needs to do a lot more

Defensively I think £5.1m Luke Shaw is the best option at the moment.  However whether he starts at the weekend or not is the issue.

Wolves (H)
West Ham (A)
Newcastle (H)
Chelsea (A)
Everton (H)
Bournemouth (A)


£6.3m Fwd Wilson started 23 games plus 5 as sub for 8 goals and 2 assists for a PP90 of 4.6 in 17/18. He started the season off well with 2 goals and 4 assists at a PPM of 5.6 playing 90 minutes in each game.  Continues to post good underlying stats although way above what he’s managed historically.

£5.7m Mid Fraser started 23 games plus 3 as sub for 5 goals and 3 assists for a PP90 of 4.3 in 17/18. 3 goals and 2 assists  in five 90 minute starts at a PPM of 7.8 is an incredible start. Again  posting great underlying stats although way ahead of what he’s done historically.

£6.3m Fwd King started 27 games plus 6 as sub for 8 goals and 4 assists for a PP90 of 4.0 in 17/18. He will have pens it seems. 1 penalty and 1 goal from open play in 5 near 90 minute starts at a PPM of 5.0. Unlike his team mates above hasn’t been posting good underlying stats.

Defence for me is either the assist potential of £4.5m Adam Smith or the goal threat of £4.6m Steve Cook.

Burnley (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Watford (A)
Southampton (H)
Fulham (A)
Man Utd (H)


£8.9m Fwd Vardy started 37 games plus 0 as sub for 20 goals and 2 assists for a PP90 of 5.1 in 17/18.  1 goal so far in 2 starts and 1 sub appearance and has played well despite a sending off affected PPM of 2.3.  Should play 90 minutes each game and have pens.

£6.5m Fwd Maddison was with Norwich in the Championship in 17/18.  2 goals and an assist in his 5 starts at an excellent PPM of 5.2.  Playing CAM and has posted good underlying stats in the last 2 games.

In defence I would probably go for attacking RB and sometimes RM Pereira at £5.1m

Huddersfield (H)
Newcastle (A)
Everton (H)
Arsenal (A)
West Ham (H)
Cardiff (A)


With Aubameyang playing on the left with poor returns and posting terrible underlying stats and Ozil doing similar despite his goal against

For that reason I’m only going to concentrate on Lacazette, and Ramsey although it should be recognised how unpredictable so far Emery has been

£9.4m Fwd Lacazette started 26 games plus 6 as sub for 14 goals and 5 assists for a PP90 of 5.7 in 17/18. Just 2 starts so far this season with a goal and 2 assists in those games and a PPM in those games of 8.5.  Also played 90 minutes in both and posted reasonable underlying stats in both

£7.4m Mid Ramsey started 21 games plus 3 as sub for 7 goals and 10 assists for a PP90 of 6.3 in 17/18. He has started 3 of the 4 games in 18/19 including the last 2 games and played 90 minutes in those 2. It was another very underwhelming performance and it’s now 4 blanks in all 4 stats and 1 sub appearance and some awful underlying stats despite being the CAM.

Defence wise it’s either Bellerin £5.4m or Monreal for me £5.5m

Everton (H)
Watford (H)
Fulham (A)
Leicester (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Liverpool (H)
