FANTASY FORECAST 2018/19: FPL Gameweek 35

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 35 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).

Arsenal (H) vs. Crystal Palace

Liverpool (A) vs. Cardiff

Chelsea (H) vs. Burnley

Spurs (H) vs. Brighton

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Liverpool: Liverpool are on an eight-match winning streak, and now they are through to their second consecutive semi-finals in the Champions League. Whilst City have United and Spurs, the Reds travel to Cardiff in what should be a rudimentary win for Klopp’s team.

 

Spurs: After a ground-breaking week for Spurs, the North London team is still holding good on its promise of delivering Champions League football to their new stadium. After going toe-to-toe with City they must be on a high unlike anything else experienced at the club, and there is a good chance they can do it again against City. They also have a rudimentary fixture against Brighton to also navigate.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Man City: Having Spurs and Man United in the same double-gameweek is a nightmare for FPL managers. Also, they might still be heartbroken after losing on away goals to Spurs to see them crash out of the Champions League. That in mind, it could also be the defining week in the title race as well.

 

West Ham: The Hammers have been extremely poor now for the last month, and I can’t see them getting into a winning position against the Foxes.

 

GW Differential Picks:

Andre Gray is a good pick this Gameweek after Troy Deeney’s red card. Ben Foster of the same game is also good option for your goalkeeping dilemma.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C) Hueng-Min Son – The South Korean has made it his mission to deliver greatness to Spurs in the absence of Harry Kane, and with two fixtures this week, and the form he is in, there is a great chance that he could win big this Gameweek.

 

(VC) Raul Jimenez – Wolves have Brighton and Arsenal both at home this week, and Wolves are a different team on home soil. The Mexican could be a big hit if Wolves keep true to their home form.

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Watford: The team that will provide the differentials points this weekend.

 

Spurs: Riding a high and are worth it for their home game against Brighton.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Brighton: Relegation beckons for this team. Have been terrible all season and deserve it after their recent Double Gameweek.

 

Chelsea: Very difficult fixture this week that I'd not like to have many options from, even if in a single Gameweek.

 

Southampton: I've not rated their Double Gameweek chances. Newcastle and Watford are very good teams.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C) Raheem Sterling – Big game player that is back in form. Rotation surely isn't on the cards, right?

 

(VC) Raul Jimenez – A brace of games with goals looking a certainty.

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 35

 

Best GW Attacking Options:

Eden Hazard, Alexandre Lacazette, Raul Jimenez. Plus anyone from Man City if you’re confident of beating Pep Roulette!

 

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Liverpool, Spurs, Watford

 

Who are your essential Gameweek player picks?:

Kevin De Bruyne, Son Heung Min, Raul Jimenez. Jimenez has a dream double gameweek against two ropey defences.

 

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

Matt Doherty (he’s due!), I like Alex Iwobi as a sneaky pick at the moment (created 7 chances v Watford) and Andre Gray who should come in for Troy Deeney.

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Manchester City and Liverpool. Obviously. Watford and Wolves also have a couple of nice fixtures while Southampton may surprise a few.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Huddersfield and Fulham. Obviously. Cardiff should probably be avoided too. Leicester are “on the beach” if the Newcastle performance last Friday is anything to go by.

 

GW Differential Picks:

I like the look of Adam Masina this weekend after Javi Gracia confirmed Jose Holebas is ruled out. Andre Gray too. It’d be harsh on Lucas Moura is he’s dropped after the week he’s had.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C) Kevin De Bruyne: Always raises to the big occasion and seems to be one of the few that is “Pep Roulette proof”.

 

(VC) Raul Jimenez: Probably an unpopular pick for captain or vice captain but he’s just so, so reliable. Fantasy bargain of the season.

 

Other Gameweek Comments:

After last week’s “Shane Duffy gate”, don’t be drawn in by the glory of the Double Gameweek. He says…
