FANTASY FORECAST 2018/19: FPL Gameweek 36

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 36 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).

FPL Forecasting: Gameweek 36

 

Best GW Attacking Options:

Liverpool (H) vs. Huddersfield

Spurs (H) vs. West Ham

Crystal Palace (H) vs. Everton

Fulham (H) vs. Cardiff

Cardiff (A) vs. Fulham

 

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Liverpool (H) vs. Huddersfield

Spurs (H) vs. West Ham

Newcastle (A) vs. Brighton

Man United (H) vs. Chelsea

Chelsea (A) vs. Man United

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Liverpool: Easy home game against a relegated club under the Anfield lights? There is potential for returns in both attack and defence.

 

Spurs: The North London club have yet to concede at their new stadium, and I can’t see West Ham being the one to break them.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Man City: I am a Liverpool fan, and the anti-football that Burnley have adopted from Chelsea who help the Reds in their title bid. I might be wrong, but I got to hope.

 

Arsenal: Another tricky away game for the Gunners, and last time they struggled to Wolves, and I can see them struggling against Leicester too.

 

Man United & Chelsea: Yes, both. I have no idea what to think about both teams right now. I also don’t think anyone apart from Liverpool and City want a Champions League place.

 

GW Differential Picks:

Ayoze Perez (NEW) at Brighton.

Ryan Babel (FUL) hosting Cardiff.

Toby Alderweireld (TOT) hosting West Ham.

Ashley Barnes (BUR) hosting Man City.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C): Mohamad Salah – Liverpool have an amazing fixture against Huddersfield, and I can see there being quite a few goals in this fixture, and I am backing the Egyptian King to do his usual thing under the Anfield lights.

 

(VC): Hueng-Min Son – My usual pairing with Mohamad Salah is Harry Kane, but because he is on the injury table, I’ll take the next best thing which is Hueng-Min Son.

 

Other Gameweek Comments:

There are only three weeks left of the season and everything is poised for an explosive finish, I see the title going down to the final day, and I see none of the other top six making ground for a finish in the Champions League places. This week there are many evenly challenged matches, so I expect there to be a few draws this week.

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Liverpool (H) vs. Huddersfield

Spurs (H) vs. West Ham

Man City (A) vs. Burnley

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Fulham: The pressure is off Fulham and Scott Parker's got the team fighting for him. Cardiff could really struggle this weekend

 

Chelsea: Man United just can't score right now. Chelsea look good money to get a Champions League spot.

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Arsenal: Away day blues could cost Arsenal a natural Champions League spot. Winning the Europa League looks their best bet... But it would mean winning a game away from home in a final.

 

Wolves: Watford and Wolves look like they'll be duelling with Everton for the elusive 7th position finish in the Premier League. Watford look like they'll shade this fixture due to Wolves dropping their standards against teams that aren't in European football this season.

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C): Sadio Mane – The Main Mane could be the triple captaincy option that FPL players deserve.

 

(VC): Sergio Aguero – City should win this weekend and I'm anticipating Aguero to get more points this week than he did last weekend.

Best GW Attacking Options:

Liverpool and Man City (Salah, Mane, Sterling, Aguero, Son)

 

Best GW Defensive / Clean Sheet Potential:

Liverpool, Spurs

 

Who are your essential Gameweek player picks?:

Sterling, Mane

 

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

Deulofeu, Vardy, Eriksen

 

Who are the teams to look out for?:

Liverpool, Wolves, Watford (the repeat of the FA Cup semis would be one to watch)

 

Who are the teams to avoid?:

Huddersfield, Burnley, West Ham

 

GW Differential Picks:

Deulofeu, Moura, Vardy, Tielemens (all less than 10% ownership)

 

FPL Captaincy Picks:

(C): Mane/Salah, Sterling, Deulofeu – Differential Captain

(VC): Sterling, Salah/Mane

 

Other Gameweek Comments:

Three games which look appealing: Liverpool, City and Sours in that order. I will be going with Mane and 2 Liverpool defenders. Not having Salah gives a lot of balance to the team. Although I have a budget of 106.5m, I still have resisted Salah for most part of the season. Instead going with Mane and 2 defenders.

 

Liverpool/Spurs rotation: Given there are 4 days gap between Huddersfield and Barcelona games, I doubt there might be a lot of rotation in the Liverpool team, but there might be early substitutions of Salah/Mane. I think Salah might be more prone to rotation. On the other hand, Son might not be a starter for Spurs as they only have 3 days gap before their match against Ajax. Having said that, Liverpool has an away game on the 2nd of April, while Spurs have a home game on the 1st.

 

To add to my suggestions... Salah seems to be in the US and looks like he is going to be rested for the Huddersfield game, so Mane might be a decent Triple Captaincy pick.

 

FPL Hype Picks: Gameweek 36

Formation: 3-4-3

 

Starting 11

 

I have kept the team value at 100. It was a little difficult to put this together because of the budget. I have a team value of 106.5m, so you can understand how I would look to get 2 players with much higher prices.
