FANTASY FORECAST 2018/19: FPL Gameweek 10

October 26, 2018

Ahead of each Gameweek in the Fantasy Premier League, The Hype Train invites a special guest onto its Fantasy Forecast, where the three members of the Hype Team and its Special Guests will duel for FPL supremacy in predicting Premier League scores, as well as going head to head in picking a Scout Picks squad for the relevant Gameweek. In addition, we give our insight into who are the players to watch and those to drop, both for traditional FPL leagues and the Draft mode, as well as providing insight into captaincy picks, differentials for the week, and more. Welcome to the Forecast. All aboard.

 

 

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 10 Deadline

For the 2016/17 Premier League season, the FPL deadline will be one hour before the commencement of the week's first game. The Premier League website lists each FPL deadline, you can always ask on social media, and you can also view a real time countdown on our Weekly Hype page.

 

 

How does our Forecasting work?

We have taken to our Hype Team, and the FPL Community, to compete in a weekly head to head dual of wits. We ask the questions that dominate each week in the Fantasy Premier League: who to pick, who to avoid, who to captain, and who may surprise. The three members of the Hype Team, and a Guest, will provide weekly insight for the Gameweek ahead.

 

For the sake of respecting the rules of the Forecast, we have provided an example of what we're sending out to interested parties that will feature throughout the season.

  • Premier League Fixture Prediction: As pundits, we are testing our football acumen with PL predictions and will be providing regular updated tables and stats in each edition of the FPL Forecast. A perfect score is worth 3 points whilst a correct result is worth 1 point.

  • FPL Gameweek Forecasting: Answering the regular questions that come up every single week in the Fantasy Premier League community that helps with identifying captaincy picks, transfers, attacking options, clean sheet potential, teams to look our for and avoid, players to consider for the Draft game, the wildcard differential players, as well as general analysis and comments.

  • Scout Picks: Picking a squad of 15 for a single Gameweek, without any budget, using the rules of the FPL - formations, captains and vice captains, and the player limits of 3 per club (chips will not be feature of these weekly picks)

  • Each team must pick a Captain, labelled as (c) and a Vice Captain listed as (vc).

Man City vs. Spurs (A)

 

Who are your essential Gameweek player picks?:

Salah, Aguero, Maddison, Martial, and Alisson.

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Liverpool: Because.

 

Arsenal: I can’t believe Arsenal a decent team. Bring back the days of away losses and tight draws against relegation fodder!

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Spurs: Hosting Manchester City is never a good thing, and the problem is that the home team have a torrid record against them. Man City are obliterating anything in their path and Spurs may be on a good way but there is never a good time to play the Manchester blue.

 

Tottenham: Another team to avoid like the Plague is Tottenham, mostly because they are facing their kryptonite in Sergio Aguero on Monday. If I was a fan I would consider not even going to the game and just accept the inevitable.

 

GW Differential Picks:

This week my main man in the differentials is Anthony Martial who has twenty-eight points in his last two games from four attacking returns. Elsewhere Dejan Lovren might have an easy clean sheet on his hands against Cardiff, and also, I am looking at Ben Chilwell as being a surprise option to accumulate returns at both ends of the pitch.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C): Mohamad Salah – The Egyptian King is back amongst the goals and with Cardiff at home there is only one man to sit on the captaincy throne this gameweek, and it is Salah.

 

(VC): Alexandre Lacazette – The Frenchman has been my favourite striker option this season, and incredible value considering he is £3.0mil less than either Aguero or Kane. Arsenal have been scoring for fun and it would be rude to ignore their potential.

 

Other Gameweek Comments:

Nothing can be worse than last weeks output in general, so I am expecting the average points to be well above 60pts.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 10

 

Best GW Attacking Options:

Liverpool (H) vs. West Ham

Fulham/Bournemouth

Watford (H) vs. Huddersfield

 

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Liverpool (H) vs. West Ham

Southampton/Newcastle

Man City (a) vs. Spurs

Watford (H) vs. Huddersfield

 

Who are your essential Gameweek player picks?:

ARM – Alonso, Robertson, Mendy

The Fab 3 – Salah, Mane, Firmino

A sting in the tail – Pereyra, Deulofeu

History favours – West Ham, Man City and Liverpool against their respective opposition this week

The Wembley Factor – Aguero’s fond hunting grounds.

 

Who are the players that might make the difference this Gameweek in the Draft?:

Dejan Lovren (LIV) – criminally overlooked and a BPS magnet.

 

Gerard Deulofeu (WAT) – A wonderful talent who could cause Huddersfield a number of nightmares

 

Luciano Vietto (FUL) – Finding a 3rd decent Forward for any Draft team is hard. Vietto is right in the thick of it at Fulham and has a decent home fixture.

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

West Ham – The Hammers dominated Leicester on their own patch last season, so are ones to watch out for this weekend.

 

Arsenal – 12 wins on the spin seems inevitable against a Palace side without a goal at home this season.

 

Newcastle – They’re playing better away from home than they are in front of their own fans.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Man United/Everton – both are risky investments to make this week.

Spurs – They look the worst of the ‘Top 5’ right now and could get walked over by City.

Southampton – Not to be entrusted by the FPL Community.

Newcastle – Southampton, just slightly better.

Brighton – Newcastle, just slightly better.

Leicester – Brighon, just slightly better.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 10

 

Best GW Attacking Options:

Mohammed Salah & Xerdan Shaqiri, CAR (H)

Starting with the obvious Liverpool's home match to Cardiff will be the first fixture players will look at for high attacking returns. Salah will be the most popular choice for captain hwoever I will be inclined to look at Shaqiri if Mane continues to be sidelined.

 

Danny Ings, NEW (H)

Danny Ings has had a few quiet weeks however with a home game against a struggling Newcastle he has a great chance to return to the scoresheet and reward his managers with good points.

 

Eden Hazard, BUR (A)

After a 1 point return against Manchester United last week, I fully expect Hazard to return to score double figures against an inconsistent Burnley at Turf Moor.

 

Andre Schurrle, BOU (H)

Schurrle has returned with two goals in two games. With a fixture against Bournemouth at Craven Cottage I like his value at £6.0 to maintain his goal-scoring form.

 

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Andrew Robertson, CAR (H)

Once again following the popular line of Liverpool at home to Cardiff, I choose Robertson who has been one of my favourite full backs in fantasy since his introduction into the Liverpool side this time last year. He has a great attacking threat and also rarely picks up yellow cards for a player so involved in both phases of the game. I fully expect a minimum of 6 points.

 

Ederson (GK), TOT (A)

Having conceded to Huddersfield & Newcastle at home Man City have now kept clean sheets in 7 of their last 10 matches in all competitions. Looking through Ederson's results he has scored 8 points (Arsenal away) & 7 points (Liverpool away) against big teams on the road. It was one of the games you can expect him to make points up for saves as well as he has rarely been seeing much action.

 

Hector Bellerin, CRY (A)

Bellerin was unfortunate to concede an owngoal blocking Ben Chilwell's (One to watch) cross on Monday. He still returned a haul of 7 points due to 2 assists. This could have been more if Lacazette took his chances that Bellerin laid on for him. I believe he will be up in the attacking mix against a Crystal Palace side who are struggling. With the combination of a potential cleen sheet and attacking potential Bellerin could return double figures for his managers.

 

Cedric Soares, NEW (H)

Cedric returned 9 points for his managers last week. With a struggling Newcastle side visiting St Mary's, Cedric is great value for £4.4 for a clean sheet.

 

Who are your essential Gameweek player picks?:

Mohammed Salah & Xerdan Shaqiri, CAR (H)

Eden Hazard, BUR (A)

Andrew Robertson, CAR (H)

Hector Bellerin, CRY (A)

Cedric, NEW (H)

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Liverpool (Home Banker)

Southampton (Favourable home fixture)

Man City (Unpopular fixture but theyre champions for a reason)

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

West Ham (Away to Leicester and with their inconsistent form its hard to trust their players)

Burnley (At home to Chelsea with no potential of players returning points)

Crystal Palace (Dreadful form and players not returning points)

 

GW Differential Picks:

Cedric, NEW (H) As above

Schurrle, BOU (H) As Above

Depoitre, WAT (A) A big Centre Forward who has a chance to create havoc in the box against a Watford side from set pieces.

Iheanacho, WHU (H) Has been involved in a lot of Leicesters previous goals and looks like a different oplayer from last season.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C): Salah, CAR (H)

(VC): Ings, NEW (H)

 

Other Gameweek Comments:

This gameweek includes some tricky fixtures that could swing either way,

BRI V WOLV, FUL V BOU, LEI V WHU, MAN U V EVE are hard to call and I struggle to pick any team favourably. LIV v CAR is the only banker material for me so I would load with LIV players if possible. I fancy SOU to beat NEW however would you be surprised if a Rafa produced a masterclass and gave them a 1-0 win away from home? No either would I.

 

WAT should beat HUD but how many times when you class WAT as banker material they let you down? Earlier in the piece I made clear my thoughts on both CHE & MAN C winning this week against BUR & TOT respectively.
