Weekly Wildcards: Gameweek Thirty-Four
Every week The Hype Train analyses the best wildcard options for your Fantasy Premier League teams. Historically weekly dream team’s comprise of mostly wildcard players whose selection falls under 5% of overall players, to which there is no doubt that their influence cannot be ignored. With such an abundance of points coming from the FPL’s hidden gems The Hype Train selects one player from each match in the upcoming gameweek to decide who could be the differential for your teams.
LAST WEEKS PERFORMANCE (GW 33)
A small part of the double gameweeks happened with both Everton and Crystal Palace in action, their players we picked both did alright which was nice to see, but there were much better options as you will see by the dream team in the next section. The lack of service to Romelu Lukaku has concerned FPL managers, as well as the number of injuries to Everton in general at the moment has left their options in great peril. We achieved four successes out of nine players who started; the only surprise leaver was Kevin Wimmer who has been replaced by the returning Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the Spurs defence which came good against Manchester United. Austrian defenders are having a great season in the Premier League so Wimmer’s affordability will be sorely missed.
Our favourite pick was Danny Drinkerwater who pinged the perfect ball to Jamie Vardy to open the scoring at the Stadium of Light. Aside from that Daniel Sturridge has become a valuable FPL option as he regains his fitness and strength. Rested in large parts of recent Europa League action he is definitely their number one BPL striker at the moment as Origi makes an impact on the bench in these fixtures. Another chaotic week in the BPL, still lots of surprises in the wildcard pool.

TEAM OF THE WEEK WILDCARDS
Where do we start here? Oh yes, the wildcard uprising of the double gameweek. Crystal Palace dominates the dream team for GW33 with four five players…four defensive options and Jason Puncheon in midfield. After keeping onto two clean sheets they had dominated and those who have chanced their defenders are being looked over due to their recent form will be grinning with satisfaction. This has left FPL managers purring at the thought of even more options occupying the hyper-charged gameweek thirty four. Another team in the double gameweek has also started showing some incredible form in the shape of the red Liverpool. Scoring goals seems to have become an easy task for the Reds who shipped four against Stoke and then a few days later four more against Dortmund in an insane encounter. Origi and Sturridge would both be great options for the upcoming double gameweek, in particular Sturridge who has proved his fitness.
Wildcards: Ward, Souare, Delaney, Moreno, Lamela, Puncheon, Carroll, Origi (8)
Non-Wildcards: Hennessey, Alderweireld, Vardy (3)
Points achieved by wildcards: 107pts
Points achieved by non-wildcards: 46pts
