POSITIONAL RANKINGS 2018/19: FPL Double Gameweek 32

With so many transfer trends and varying levels of form impacting the strategies of FPL players around the world, ahead of each Gameweek we will be providing our top selections in each position (GK, DEF, MID, FOR) for standalone rounds of games. Our player selections will be based purely on our opinion of those players on our watchlist any given week, with may positively sway FPL or Draft players with their own thoughts and decisions heading in to a Gameweek. All aboard.

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 32 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.

FPL Gameweek 32: Goalkeeper Selections

1) Ederson (MCI - £5.6m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

2) Kepa Arrizabalaga (CHE - £5.4m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

3) David de Gea (MUN - £5.7m): vs. Watford (H) & Wolves (a)

4) Vicente Guaita (CRY - £4.2m): vs. Huddersfield (H) & Spurs (a)

5) Hugo Lloris (TOT - £5.4m): vs. Liverpool (a) & Crystal Palace (H)

15 games. 10 Double Gameweek teams. 3 top 6 teams with very favourable fixtures. At the top of the essential keeper list this week is Man City's Ederson. The Brazilian shot-stopper is one of (if not the only) member of Pep Guardiola's team that won't be rotated, so if you're an FPL player that is looking for security and definite starters, Ederson's 14 clean sheets is the first place to start.

If you're looking to stack up with City attacking options, the next best suitable Fantasy options lay with Chelsea and Man United. Both have keepers that are set in stone, with Chelsea's Kepa quite literally refusing not to play, even when substituted. Fixtures against Brighton and Cardiff provide Kepa the perfect platform to challenge in a Free Hit team this week, especial with some defensive assets potentially on the rotation radar as Europa League commitments surface.

A trip to Wolves poses A difficult test to Man United and David de Gea, with United recently losing 2-0 to Wolves in the FA Cup. De Gea's the least safe of the keeper options of the power trio, though offers a higher ceiling for save points, though United haven't kept a clean sheet in 3 league games, so is worth weight up before committing on.

Spurs play their first game at their stadium against Crystal Palace, though you have to balance the potential good with the bad as Spurs first visit a Liverpool side who are unbeaten in nearly 40 Premier League games at Anfield. On the opposing side at Spurs's new stadium is Crystal Palace and their budget shot-stopper, Vicente Guaita, whose home tie against Huddersfield offers the cheapest route into a likly clean sheet this weekend.

Single Gameweek options to consider:

- Bernd Leno (ARS - £4.8m) vs. Newcastle (H)

- Alisson (LIV - £6.0m) vs. Spurs (H)

- Tom Heaton (BUR - £4.8m) vs. Wolves (H)

FPL Gameweek 32: Defender Selections

1) Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE - £6.3m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

2) David Luiz (CHE - £5.9m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

3) Kyle Walker (MCI - £6.4m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

4) Aymeric Laporte (MCI - £5.9m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

5) Victor Lindelof (MUN - £5.1m): vs. Watford (H) & Wolves (a)

6) Chris Smalling (MUN -£5.6m): vs. Watford (H) & Wolves (a)

7) Patrick van Aanholt (CRY - £5.4m): vs. Huddersfield (H) & Spurs (a)

8) Matt Doherty (WOL - £5.4m): vs. Burnley (a) & Man United (H)

9) Kiko Femenia (WAT - £4.2m): vs. Man United (a) & Fulham (H)

10) Kieran Trippier (TOT - £6.0m): vs. Liverpool (a) & Crystal Palace (H)

The format for our defensive picks during Double Gameweek 32 follows on from our Goalkeeper selections, with Man City, Man United and Chelsea the key player assets to pick this week. The only change is the order in which you might consider them. With City favourable in attack, this frees up Chelsea as the best clean sheet potential at the other end, with many players considering doubling up.

Elsewhere, Free Hitters will most likely be deciding from one of Wolves, Palace, Watford, Spurs and Crystal Palace (with Brighton at a stretch) to fill our the rest of your defence. Full-backs might just be the order of the day, with Trippier's set-piece potential, and Doherty's attacking instincts, at the top of the agenda with a brace o games on the horizon.

Single Gameweek options to consider:

- Sead Kolasinac (ARS - £5.0m): vs. Newcastle (H)

- Ben Chilwell (LEI - £5.0m): vs. Bournemouth (H)

- Ricardo Pereira (LEI - £5.4m): vs. Bournemouth (H)

- Virgil van Dijk (LIV - £6.6m): vs. Spurs (H)

- Andrew Robertson (LIV - £6.9m): vs. Spurs (H)

FPL Gameweek 32: Midfielder Selections

1) Raheem Sterling (MCI - £11.6m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

2) Eden Hazard (CHE - £10.9m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

3) Paul Pogba (MUN - £8.9m): vs. Watford (H) & Wolves (a)

4) Diogo Jota (WOL - £6.1m): vs. Burnley (a) & Man United (H)

5) David Silva (MCI - £8.5m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

6) Leroy Sane (MCI - £9.3m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

7) Luka Milivojevic (CRY - £6.3m): vs. Huddersfield (H) & Spurs (a)

8) Pedro (CHE - £6.4m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

9) Dele Alli (TOT - £8.8m): vs. Liverpool (a) & Crystal Palace (H)

10) Heung-Min Son (TOT - £8.6m): vs. Liverpool (a) & Crystal Palace (H)

Heading in to Gameweek 32, there are a few key players in midfield that everyone will be trying to figure out how to get in to their Free Hit squads. Raheem Sterling, fresh off a hat-trick against the Czech Republic, is a must given that his last Premier League appearance also resulted in a treble against Watford at home.

Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba, both lighting up the international stage during the recent domestic break, add set-piece potential to the equation, whilst the 4th midfielder spot for the week will be likely contested by a second Man City midfielder, or a budget option in the form of Jota, Pedro (who tends to catch you by surprise in these type of Gameweek's) or penalty specialist, Luka Milivojevic.

In line with the rest of this article, Spurs assets are tacked on and fill the remaining spots of the list, just to let you know that they may have a part to play this week (just maybe).

Single Gameweek options to consider:

- Sadio Mane (LIV - £10.0m): vs. Spurs (H)

- James Maddison (LEI - £6.8m): vs. Bournemouth (H)

FPL Gameweek 32: Forward Selections

1) Sergio Aguero (MCI - £11.8m): vs. Fulham (a) & Cardiff (H)

2) Marcus Rashford (MUN - £7.6m): vs. Watford (H) & Wolves (a)

3) Raul Jimenez (WOL - £6.8m): vs. Burnley (a) & Man United (H)

4) Gonzalo Higuain (CHE - £9.6m): vs. Cardiff (a) & Brighton (H)

5) Harry Kane (TOT - £12.5m): vs. Liverpool (a) & Crystal Palace (H)

Man City finalise their top-billing this week with Sergio Aguero as the essential option this week. The Argentine has failed to score in 3 of the last 5 games, though the perfect combination of fixtures and overall form means that Aguero can't be overlooked. The only downside is the 'R' word that we've mentioned a few times - the nature of an easy fixture list means that Pep could very well rotate. Realistically though, with the league title heavily contested, Pep shouldn't (in theory) change his starting lineup too much.

Marcus Rashford is the latest casualty of being injured during the international break, only to have question marks raised about his availability, only to end up playing. Rashford is still in high esteem at a good price, though be wary... The Englishman hasn't scored since Gameweek 25, meaning that it's no league goals in 5 matches.

The template trio of Double Gameweek picks rounds off with Raul Jimenez as an automatic pick in Free Hit squads this week. Both Burnley and Man United offer immense points potential for the in-form Mexican international. Jimenez scored against Man United in a recent FA Cup win, and in the league has scored 6 goals in the last 7 games.

The other options to round off our selection process is with favouring Chelsea's form, and even though he looks good in training videos in the last week, the Argentine has been a peripheral and isolated figure in Chelsea's attack. Blind faith that fixtures will come good, and the promising international form of Eden Hazard, might tempt a few heads.

17-goal Harry Kane makes up the remainder of the list, though we're not sure he'll be backed by the masses for the upcoming week due to an inflated £12.5 million price tag. Kane will be competing with Aguero and Higuain this week, with a trip to Liverpool probably enough to put many off, though Kane can't be ignored due to his pedigree as an elite Forward in the league.

Single Gameweek options to consider:

- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS - £10.8): vs. Newcastle (H)

- Alexandre Lacazette (ARS - £9.4m): vs. Newcastle (H)

- Salomon Rondon (NEW - £6.0m): vs. Arsenal (a)

- Jamie Vardy (LEI - £9.1m): vs. Bournemouth (H)
