fantasy premier league wildcard tips GW38 – the FFGeek imaginary wildcard


Here’s our fantasy premier league wildcard tips GW38 article where I pretend I’m using my wildcard. The idea is to give you transfer suggestions for the GW38.

The idea of this article is to bring together the other articles of the gameweek.

You can see stats on the players with the following articles:

Form tables

Defender player rankings

Midfield player rankings

Bandwagons and sinking ships

You can also see who the 10 top FPL managers have in the FFGeek contributors article 1 and article 2.

There’s also 715 OR finisher last season Andrew Ferguson’s team

Unfortunately I had a few issues with the numbers on the forwards player rankings so there won’t be that article so use the form rankings.

The team

Here’s the team.

General structure

Firstly the team value is around £104.5m but you could reduce that by downgrading one of the 2 cheap midfielders to someone like £4.3m Dendoncker £4.2m McTominay, £4.3m Stephens or Huddersfield’s £4.2m Bacuna

The idea was to squeeze in the 4 key attacking players from Liverpool and Man City and 2 defensive players from the same teams.

That meant hunting for bargains elsewhere which always comes with risk.


There could be very few clean sheets around this gameweek so I’ve gone for the value and hopefully save points of Palace’s GK Guaita who are home to Bournemouth and £4.0m Bournemouth GK Travers as back up


I think there are only 4 potential clean sheets today with Liverpool, Man City, Southampton and Man Utd.  I’ve tried to cover them all.

For Liverpool I’ve chosen Alexander Arnold and Man City Laporte.  Southampton I’ve gone for Valery.

Then I’ve gambled to save some cash.  I suspect Rose and Trippier will be rested after the UCL midweek.  Foyth is suspended, Vertonghen injured as is Sanchez.  It’s hard to see who else apart from Davies will play CB in those absences so Walker Peters and Aurier should fill the FB spots.  There’s alot of dot joining in this so if you are going for Walker Peters make sure you do it in the knowledge of this risk.

The usual weekly Man Utd who ends up at the hotel drama has again ended up with rumours of Lindelof and Shaw not being part of the squad.  So I’ve gone for Jones as the cheap filler here.  Again pick him at your own risk.


It seems Salah will be fit so he joins the 2 other crucial players in the title chasers of Sterling and Mane.

After that I’ve had to go for 2 cheap players in Babel of Fulham and Redmond of Southampton.  Babel stats may have dropped off after a lightening start but he still looks a good goal bet.  Redmond has been playing striker or an attacking midfielder and anyone of that ilk against Huddersfield is a good punt


Up front it’s the captain poll favourite of Aguero firstly.

Shane Long follows the theory of whoever Huddersfield are playing.  I like Ings but there is risk attached with his minutes.

Lastly there’s Rashford with a good fixture at home to Cardiff
