It's Wildcard season in the Fantasy Premier League season, with 6 additional games over two Gameweek's to consider for your attention. Most FPL players leave it to the week before when activating their second 'wildcard' of the season, allowing players to revamp their entire squad if needs be. The Hype Train first took a look at doubtful player picks, and now we evaluate who be believe will be the key Goalkeeping options for the remainder of the season. Buckle in as we provide a Graphical Aid for 5 players might be the safest pair of hands leading in to Gameweek's 36 and 37. All aboard.

Graphical Aid: Our 5 Goalkeeper Selections

Picking a good Goalkeeper with potential could be the making of your Gameweek in the FPL. David de Gea, Willy Caballero, and Lee Grant have shown that the points are there in a Double Gameweek if you play your cards right. Our top five selections are based on the likelyhood of these players being the best defensive options from any team. Ten teams featured twice, but we believe that options are somewhat limited due to affordability, price, and fixtures.

Our key piece of advise is simple - if you believe that your defender picks in a wildcard will not play, or be rotated, but believe them to be essential to your plans, their goalkeeper's will almost certainly play.

Arsenal are rotating their backline, for example, with Holding, Gabriel, Bellerin, Gibbs, Monreal, and soon to be Mustafi, all vying for starting spots. Koscielny appears to be a lock to play, but Cech is cheaper and could come up trumps in ways the pricey Frenchman can't.

Got anymore suggestions? We're always willing to listen to the FPL community should any be added to the list. You can find us on our Twitter - @RealHypeTrain - if you want to join in on the Double Gameweek discussion.
