FANTASY PREMIER LEAGUE GW30 DEFENDER TIPS – PLAYER RANKINGS FOR DEFS AND GKS
If the article is a little stats heavy and long winded then there is a suggested players for GW30 transfers section at the end.
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:
fixture ease ranking so you can see who has the best fixtures over a 2 and 4 gameweek spell. See our fixture ease article
best cheap secure gametime option and an attacking option so you can compare price.
even potentially cheaper player who needs further explanation which is below the schedule
GK price in as a comparison.
bookies odds for a clean sheet for GW30.
Expected goal information is from the excellent free site understat.com. See our underlying stats article and Joseph Crilleys GW29 review
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. It should be set up so anyone can view but not alter. So just copy and paste it into your own spreadsheet if you want to mess about with it
THE VALUE RISK CLARIFICATIONS
The situation among the top teams is tricky at the moment. Both Manchester Clubs have an abundance of CBs no fixed FPL defender as LB and expensive RBs as the main option.
Spurs rotate both sets of FBs and only Vertobghen looks safe as Alderweireld is being treated with kid gloves.
On the above 3 teams I’ve put what I think are the safest options but in each case the most expensive.
PLAYER SUGGESTIONS FOR A GW30 TRANSFER IN
We’re looking for good defences with GW30 being a good entry point and good fixtures onward as an ideal. Only Huddersfield has a GW31 fixture
3 suggestions for me
Man City – Everyone is a gamble apart from the GK but Walker for me has the least credible competition
Chelsea – Christensen for Value or Alonso for attacking threat
Huddersfield – Zanka – 2 good fixtures to come and a GW31 fixture
