F O U R F O R Y O U - Gameweek 33

Each week I will be picking a player from each position that I think is the best play and the best value (points per million) that week in their position. It will be based on the FanTeam pricing (FPL pricing will also be provided). Only one player per club will be picked each week, to hopefully encourage some more differential player picks. The aim each week is to hit double figures with each player and one point per million with each player. Please feel free to leave any feedback in the comments, all feedback is greatly appreciated.

Here are the results for last weeks picks(based on FanTeam pricing), for a pick to be correct it needs to hit on both double figures (DF) and points per million (PM):

Goalkeeper – Nick Pope (Burnley)

DF – 2.70 points ❌

PPM – 0.48 points ❌

Defender – Conor Coady (Wolves)

DF – 1.70 points ❌

PPM – 0.34 points ❌

Midfielder – Daniel James (Leeds United)

DF – 6.30 points ❌

PPM – 1.05 points ✅

Forward – Michail Antonio (West Ham)

DF – 0.70 points ❌

PPM – 0.09 points ❌

Weekly: 0-4

Overall : 3-17

“It isn’t getting any better that’s for sure, another big fat zero, despite hitting on the Daniel James pick on the points per million with an assist and a score of 6.30. Other than that the highest scorer was Pope with 2.70 points, and even worse than that Antonio didn’t even make it to one whole point. Gameweek 33 is a double gameweek, so I’m going to attack gameweek 33 from a different angle to target something better than another 0-4.”

Goalkeeper – Kaspar Schmeichel (Leicester City)

FanTeam – 5.0M

FPL - £4.8M

The hardest position of the four to hit double figures on is goalkeeper, but Kaspar Schmeichel has been making an average of 3.55 saves on FanTeam, so seven saves in his double gameweek would give you an easy 3.5 points. He would only need to then get a clean sheet in one game, but would still need to play both matches to hit his double figures, without a clean sheet we would require a lot more saves from the danish keeper. He faces Newcastle and Everton, both away, so both games he could easily get clean sheets from and their is potential for plenty of save points too, Schmeichel did in fact keep a clean sheet at the King Power Stadium against Newcastle in December last year. There are a few keepers that could be worth picking up in gameweek 33, but Schmeichel is my pick in goal this week. He’s only 5.0M on FanTeam which is midrange pricing for a goalkeeper on FanTeam, so he could give you great value as your goalkeeper pick for gameweek 33.

Defender – Harry Maguire (Manchester United)

FanTeam – 5.1M

FPL – £5.4M

I said last week I don’t like picking centre backs in fantasy football, so here I am picking another centre back, madness. But my reason for picking Harry Maguire, is one because he has a double gameweeek, even though one game is against high flying Liverpool but secondly and more importantly he faces one of the worst away teams in the league at Old Trafford in Norwich City. He most definitely has the chance for a clean sheet in that match, Maguire and Manchester Utd did exactly that in the return fixture earlier in the season in a 1-0 win. Maguire has had a lot of criticism this season for his performances, however he is fourth for shots on target on FanTeam for this Man United team, crazy considering he’s a centre back, it’s no secret how dangerous he is from set pieces. Of course hes not in the team to have shots on target, but in fantasy football a centre back that can keep a clean sheet and have shots on target is a player worth having in my opinion. At only 5.1M on FanTeam he’s got to be worth a shot this week and would be a huge differential, with many fantasy managers probably staying well clear of the Manchester United and England defender.

Midfielder – James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

FanTeam – 6.8M

FPL - £6.4M

James Ward-Prowse has gone about his business quietly as usual this season, he’s the 11th best midfielder on FanTeam and he is cheaper than all of the top 10 assets. He doubles this week too, with a home game against Arsenal who have conceded five in their last two and then Burnley away who have conceded four in their last two. Ward-Prowse feels like a perfect pick in a gameweek when he faces two sides conceding goals, the potential for points is massive, you should get a shot at 180 minutes to bank some famous free kick goals and set piece assists from the Saints man chasing David Beckham’s Premier League free kick record. Like I said, at only 6.8M on FanTeam he’s cheaper than every midfield player above him on total points, so could he be a cheaper differential in midfield this week?

Forward – Wout Weghorst (Burnley)

FanTeam – 5.5M

FPL - £6.4M

Wout Weghorst has been talked about a lot as a fantasy asset after his January arrival, but he has disappointed with only 1 goal and two assists. He also doubles in gameweek 33 and faces a West Ham side with a Europa League semi final on their mind, then a Southampton side who just conceded six against a rampant Chelsea. Burnley are sitting 18th in the Premier League and need to start picking up points sooner rather than later, so this is the perfect time for their main man up front Weghorst to start scoring some goals and help Burnley secure their premier league survival. Could Sean Dyche’s sacking revitalise Burnley and Weghorst? Lets hope so, Dyche has been in charge for a long time, so maybe a change will do them good. For only 5.5M on FanTeam he’s well worth having as your second or even third forward, and he can most definitely repay that 5.5M with a decent return over his two fixtures in gamweek 33.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed F O U R F O R Y O U gameweek 33, any comments or suggestions please let me know in the comments.
