Fantasy Premier League players which have slipped Under The Rader ahead of FPL Gameweek 35
After an indifferent Gameweek 34 for most FPL managers and the return to scoring exploits of our lord and saviour, Sir Diego Costa, we look ahead with hope and ambition for Gameweek 35 and what should be a very interesting week with the double gameweek on the horizon.
This week, I will give you 5 players that I believe can have a big impact on the upcoming gameweek and hopefully give you food for thought when making your FPL transfers ahead of Saturday’s 14:00pm deadline.
Each week, I’ve to select five players that have a TSB% (teams selected by) of under 5% at the time of writing, in an attempt to unearth some hidden gems that could help bolster your mini-league position and overall ranks.
Clearly, there’s a reason why these players have a TSB of 5% and under, but if you’re looking to accommodate premium picks in your fantasy teams, these bargain buys could help secure the funds you require.
Wayne Hennessey – Crystal Palace
- Burnley (H)
A player that at the start of the season many fantasy managers would have been reluctant to put in their fantasy teams, with the likes of Steve Mandanada and Julian Speroni fighting to be between the sticks in the Palace team, Wayne has shown that he deserves to be number one with some fine performances this season.
With Palace beaten Liverpool over the double gameweek and having a very nice fixture at home against Burnley, you would expect Hennessey to grab the clean sheet points, and hopefully a bonus or two for his efforts.
If you’re lucky enough to still have your wildcard intact and are looking for a cheap alternate to the more premium picks of De Gea or Lloris, then Wayne can be your man.
André Ayew – West Ham
- Stoke City (A)
A player that last season many fantasy managers loved to have in their teams; a midfielder on the game that plays up front and can score goals, André was scoring fantasy points for fun. So when West Ham came calling, many fantasy managers would have looked at André as a must for their team, but it hasn’t been as fruitful as many of us had hoped.
Injuries have plagued his season but he’s now back to full fitness and looking to score points again in the absence of Antonio for the remainder of the season, as we saw against Sunderland in which he grabbed a goal and was unlucky to not get any bonus points.
With Stoke away next in Gameweek 35 and some very nice fixtures approaching for the Hammers, do not rule out Ayew as the differential who could help give you that last, late surge up your mini-leagues.
Saido Berahino – Stoke
- West Ham (H)
With many FPL managers ditching the likes of Zlatan and Lukaku to afford the more premium midfielders such as Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez, many of us will be looking for that 3rd striker who can score them points from under the radar.
Now, I honestly wouldn’t blame anyone for looking past this pick (yes I know I said this before), but Saido surely has to start scoring soon, right?
At a price of just £6.0m and some very kind fixtures coming up, do not dismiss Berahino as the striker that you need in your team, given the fact that we all know he can score goals for fun when in the mood and has a TSB of just 0.5%.
Wahbi Khazri – Sunderland
- Bournemouth (H)
A player that I presume no one has looked at over the entire season? Especially playing for such a poor Sunderland team who’re facing Championship football in the face – I would not blame anyone for not wanting to put Khazri into their team, but he could be the man to earn them some vital points that they need over the coming gameweeks.
With a 10 point haul against West Ham and some very kind fixtures coming up, including a double gameweek in gameweek 37, why not put Khazri in now before others catch on and save yourself some funds for the more premium players such as Kane and Aguero?
Jack Stephens – Southampton
- Hull City (H)
At the start of the season I presume a lot of people would have looked at this name and thought who? And I was definitely one of them. But with a starting place assured in a very respectable Southampton defence and a price of just £4.1m, Stephens is a good differential for any team.
With Southampton having a nice fixture against Hull and then two double gameweeks on the horizon, why not put Jack in your team as a differential defender who can earn you some clean sheet points over the next gameweeks.
