WEEKLY WILDCARDS 2017/18: FPL Gameweek 35
Ahead of each round of Premier League games The Hype Train analyses the best wildcard player options for your Fantasy Premier League teams. Historically, weekly FPL Dream Team’s comprise of mostly differential players whose selection falls with a low selection percentage 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 Premier League match in the upcoming Gameweek to decide who could be the differential that sets your team apart. All aboard.
WILDCARDS: WHAT IS A DIFFERENTIAL PLAYER?
The rules for the 2015/16 season were easy enough to follow. The only rule was that a player had be to selected by less than 5% of the FPL's populace. With 2016/17's price changes, and player selection trends, we were been forced to revise our rules on what constitutes a differential. Now in the 2017/18 season, after testing the waters with selection, there are just not enough differentials with the classification in each position from years past, so we have introduced position specific rules regarding what is and isn't a wildcard/differential player in the FPL that we believe is representative to the game this season.
- Any shot stopper outside of the top 8 selected. A differential Goalkeeper is now considered outside of the top bracket due to the overwhelming ownership selection % of the top 8 GK's for any one Gameweek.
- A GK's ownership must not exceed 10%
- A Defender's ownership must fall below 8%, with the top 20 owned defenders all harbouring 8% ownership or more.
- The Outsider Rule: This new rule applies to defenders who are the last defensive option in a team who we provide an exception to as the 4th of 5th most owned defender from one team if they offer a different value. For Example, if Chelsea or Spurs have three defenders with 10% plus ownership, and their 4th defender choice has downwards of 10% ownership, we will include them as a differential, as they are outside of the common conversation when picking defenders, even from within their own squad. This rule will mostly be used when adding defenders from top half clubs, who lack proper differential status for their defensive options.
- Any Midfielder under 8% ownership is classified as a differential.
- Our percentage criteria of 8% is due to a greater wealth of premium midfielders. There is a monopoly of top midfielders for most Premier League clubs, leaving only a handful of Midfielders that provide differential options on a weekly basis.
- The top 10 most owned Forwards in the FPL at any given time can not be touched as a differential.
- Any Forward outside of the 10% ownership range, who is not in the top 10 owned forwards.
DIFFERENTIALS: GAMEWEEK PERFORMANCE (GW34)
Our scoring procedure is exactly the same as the FPL's, and each week a good barometer of success is whether or not our weekly selections outscore the average points for a Gameweek. Each week the results vary due to rotation, and unpredictable scorelines, which applies more so to differential players. We have an invested interest each and every week at finding the different players to make a difference, especially since it is easy to say Aguero or Kane will get on the score sheet.
See below for how our wildcard selections got on this past Gameweek.

GAMEWEEK WILDCARD DIFFERENTIALS
For each FPL Gameweek we select a wildcard player from each game.
We do not select a back-up player for the differentials we bank on – that’s the whole point, being a wildcard.
The selection percentage and player price is accurate with the posting of the article.
Our rundowns of player selections are representative of the Premier League’s TV fixture list.
Weekly Differentials (GW35)
From fourteen fixtures to just six this week, the rollercoaster of the Premier League continues. Fantasy players will be looking for differentials in a week where they most likely use their free hit chip, or have points deducted to make up the numbers. Differentials in a week such as this are crucial to having a good week, and there are a lot of underrated gems this week.
We start with the return of Ederson to the differentials. The Brazilian goalkeeper has been a rock for the newly crowned Premier League champions, and with five of the most favourable fixtures approaching the end of the season, Ederson could be the answer to having City coverage in your defence without sweating over rotation. Manchester City are chasing Premier League records, and without anymore clubs from the top six left to face, we expect Guardiola to go all out to make this a team worth remembering for years to come. Ederson will play every second between now and the end of the season, mostly because of the lack of trust in Claudio Bravo.
Manchester City’s final five fixtures:
GW35: Swansea (H)
GW36: West Ham (A)
GW37: Huddersfield (H)
GW37: Brighton (H)
GW38: Southampton (A)
Virgil van Dijk (LIV)
Just one defender this week, and the honour goes to Liverpool’s Dutchman, Virgil van Dijk. Since joining the Merseyside club the Reds have kept six clean sheets from eleven fixtures that Virgil has featured. The impact the new signing has had is profound, with Liverpool finding themselves competing with Manchester United for the right to say they had the best defence this campaign.
Manchester United have seventeen clean sheets, whilst Liverpool have fifteen, and if you were to ask any neutral if they rated Liverpool’s defence as one of the best before the season started the resounding answer would have been ‘no’. Virgil is a staple for Liverpool currently, he is un-droppable as the Reds aim to keep momentum going into their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.
West Brom shouldn’t be tough fixture for the Reds, their probably won’t be that many goals from an early kick-off, so it should be the defenders who are the big winners from this fixture.
Wilfried Zaha (CRY)
Crystal Palace’s Ivorian winger is this week’s Key Differential. The truth behind Crystal Palace is simple, Zaha is their superstar. When the winger doesn’t play they lack penetration from their attackers, as evident when Zaha was injured earlier in the season. The winger tops our list of differentials this week because he has consistently picked up fantasy points in recent fixtures, and his performance against Brighton illustrated his goal scoring prowess.
The other option to captain the differentials was Alexandre Lacazette, but there is a real distrust of Arsenal assets in Europa League weeks, and in general. When you look at captaincy options you look for players who can turn up in any fixture, and fortunately for us Wilfried Zaha is the standout player.
Utilised as a striker against Brighton, his pace and movement forces defenders back, and he also possesses the mind of a poacher too. In the summer we can see Spurs and Liverpool go in for the attacker due to his versatility and pace. For the time being Zaha remains at Palace and is their best hope of avoiding the drop down to the Championship.
Wilfried Zaha Key Stats:
Zaha has five fantasy returns in his last five fixtures. Two assists and three goals, with the most recent haul a fourteen-point return after scoring two versus Brighton at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace hare unbeaten in their last two away games (Huddersfield & Bournemouth). The Eagles have scored two goals in both fixtures.
Furthermore, Palace have scored in their last nine away fixtures in the Premier League. The last time they failed to score on the road was a 0-0 draw with West Brom during GW15. They have also scored in their last six fixtures overall, last time they couldn’t score was GW28 in a 1-0 loss to Spurs.
The reverse fixture (GW17) finished: Crystal Palace 2-1 Watford. Zaha picked up an assist in the Eagles victory over the Hornets.
Alexandre Lacazette (ARS), Ashley Barnes (BUR), Ayoze Perez (NEW)
Half of this week’s differentials are forwards options surprisingly, but when three in-form strikers are in a reduced gameweek you listen to your gut. We start with Alexandre Lacazette who was in the running to be our key differential, missing out to Zaha. The Arsenal forward started his new relationship with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by scoring a perfectly timed goal versus Newcastle last weekend.
Arsenal are up against West Ham this week, and with Wenger’s recent announcement that he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season we can see this having a knock-on effect to the rest of the team, perhaps it might even spur them on to win such an important fixture for the fans. A player of Lacazette’s talent should be a great pick on paper against West Ham.
Next up is Ashley Barnes, the Burnley forward has been a recent revelation to fantasy players after scoring five goals in his last seven games. The cheap option will be present in every Gameweek till the end of the season, and it starts with a fixture away to Stoke which looks a good place to kickstart the end of Burnley’s monumental campaign this season. Stoke are struggling on all fronts, so you shouldn’t think twice about placing faith in either Barnes or Wood who are both massively underrated going into GW35.
The last player in the reduced gameweek with the limelight on him is Newcastle’s very own Ayoze Perez. The Spaniard has been a vital cog in the recent fortunes for the Toon, and in the last three games alone Perez has picked up a whopping thirty-one points. Two consecutive twelve-point weeks has seen the stock of this player dramatically rise. Newcastle are a team on the up, what Rafa Benitez has done is nothing short of miraculous this season, and the same can’t be said for Sam Allardyce who has quite simply gotten a very talented Everton side ‘over the line’. You go with form players, and nobody in this fixture is as red hot as Ayoze Perez.
