Rob Reid with his fantasy premier league GW32 player picks

Hi everyone and welcome to Gameweek 32 Player Picks.

You may recall that last season I ran a weekly article where I selected an Ace, Banker and Joker pick each week. This season I’ve slightly changed the format but I’ll be making my picks along similar lines. The Ace will be a form player who I would heavily favour for captain this week. The Banker is a fixture pick and has an eye to the next few gameweeks. The Joker will be a differential pick where the only condition is that they must have less than 10% ownership.

I’ll be keeping an eye on how each player performs each week. After the success of GW1 & 2s Bankers, I’ve decided to go back on my original plan and I’ll now be following the Banker pick for 4 weeks again, like I did last season. I’ll also be running a weekly average on how well the selections perform each week. Finally, there will be Guest Picks again from time to time and I’ll be running some Twitter Polls throughout the season where Fantasy Football Geek readers and Twitter followers will be able to vote on who we’re going to pick in each category – keep an eye out for these as the season goes on and feel free to vote!

Here goes – wish me luck!

Gameweek 32 Picks

Banker – Luka Milivojevic (CRY £6.3m) – HUD/tot

The Crystal Palace defensive midfielder has proved again this season that sometimes in FPL it’s wise to look beyond the statistics. To all intensive purposes he offers little goal threat and creativity when compared with many of his more attacking rivals, but what he does have is pens and set pieces. His GW30 spot kick takes his tally to 9 goals for the season and if you add this to the 6 sets of full bonus points he’s racked up, it means that a scored spot-kick is essentially worth 8 points instead of 5 to the Serb. Add to this the fact that The Eagles have a double gameweek this week, the first game of which is against rock-bottom Huddersfield. And then also add the fact that they also have a GW33 fixture and you’ve got a player who should be well set for the next few weeks. Owners will be hoping the penalties keep on coming for Palace!

Ace – Raheem Sterling (MCI £11.6m) – ful/CAR

On the playing side, It’s been a good week on international duty for the CIty star. It started with a well taken Wembley hat-trick at home to the Czech Republic and was then followed by a fine performance away to Montenegro, capped by a tidy finish for England’s 5th goal. He’ll certainly fancy his chances of keeping his form going back on the club stage this week as quadruple contenders City face 2 of the EPL’s bottom 3 in what could be a bumper double gameweek for their attacking assets. There is always the spectre of Pep Rotation Roulette with any City player and it’s worth bearing in mind that he was only a sub in City’s second game back in their GW25 double gameweek. That being said though, with Sterling’s ownership still sitting under 20%, he’s a great option for managers looking to make up as the season nears its conclusion and I suspect he may fill his boots this week.

Joker – Bernardo Silva (MCI £7.5m) – ful/CAR

It’s a City double-up on Player Picks this week with 7.8% owned Bilva getting the nod in the Joker spot. He’s not the most explosive of City’s midfield assets with only 2 double figure hauls in a season that’s so far produced 5 goals and 7 assists for him. But what he does seem to have is good gametime security – he’s started 14 of the last 17 league matches, including both games in DGW25. Whoever you pick, I think having 2 City players in your attacking 6 or 7 this week looks a good option and if you’re on your Free Hit, there’s even an argument for having 3. In both these scenarios, Bilva is pretty budget friendly and if City go goal crazy in either game (which is quite likely) I’d expecting at least one return from the Portuguese star.

That’s all from me this week on Player Picks, best of luck for this week everyone!

  1. Like the Bernard Wood call, thinking similar. He’s due a haul and could be a great differential. Hasn’t returned in the last few GWs is my only worry

  2. Ooo you’re confident on sterling’s minutes? He was my captain for a week, but I feel the majority is right though with Agy probably playing both and sterl 1. Sterl is awesome off the bench though… So hard!

  3. If playing Free Hit chip then why not to compare Bilva with Laporte as a 3rd Citi player? Laporte could have 2 CS plus attacking returns. In previous DGW he got 20pts! Plus he is 1.5m cheaper than Bilva. Did I purswade you to change Bilva to Laporte as a 3rd Citi player?)
