FPL Briefing | Gameweek 35+

There are just four games remaining in this season’s Premier League, with FPL managers hoping to get every point they can in what could be a tight end to their fantasy campaigns.

Aiming to get back to winning ways at Molineux on Sunday, Wolves will put their consecutive defeats behind them as they host Everton in a 12pm kick-off. Ahead of the match, we have once again analysed two players – one from each side – who could make a difference to your Fantasy Premier League side.

With a 12.30pm start to the gameweek on Saturday, this means a 11.30am transfer deadline for your teams, and to help you decide what moves to make, we’ve taken a look across the league and identified a player who is one to watch going into Gameweek 35+, as well as a cheap striker who is expected to continue his recent form in front of goal.

Wolves target: Rui Patricio

  • Position: Goalkeeper
  • Price: £5.3m
  • 2019/20 points: 137
  • Points since restart: 21

The third-highest FPL points scorer in the Wolves squad this season, Rui Patricio will be hoping to get back on a clean sheet run this weekend.

With Wolves conceding three goals in the past two games, Nuno will surely be targeting a return to form at the back, which will benefit the Portuguese shot-stopper, who picked up 18 points in the four matches prior to the last seven days.

With favourable fixtures for Wolves on the horizon, the 10.5 per cent of FPL owners could get good returns from Patricio in the final four matches.

Toffees target: Lucas Digne

  • Position: Defender
  • Price: £5.8m
  • 2019/20 points: 112
  • Points since restart: 29

Everton defender Lucas Digne has continued his improving FPL form for the Toffees with another assist in Thursday night’s 1-1 draw with Southampton at Goodison Park.

The man in form among his teammates since the Premier League restart, Digne could also benefit from his side’s schedule, which suggests the Frenchman can be a big success at both ends of the pitch.

With games against Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Bournemouth to come, the 26-year-old, who has three double-figure hauls already this season, is expected to continue his point scoring prowess in the run-in.

Falling in stock: Raul Jimenez

  • Position: Forward
  • Price: £8.2m
  • 2019/20 points: 170
  • Points since restart: 23

After a stunning start in the first two matches following the return to Premier League football last month, Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been struggling in front of goal in recent fixtures.

Two points in each of his last three matches has seen the Mexican become the most transferred out player by FPL managers ahead of Gameweek 35+, with 126,000 taking a break from the number nine.

But with Jimenez a main stay in the Wolves team, having played in every game for the club since their promotion to the Premier League two seasons ago, it is only a matter of time before the striker is back among the goals.

On the rise: Willian

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Price: £7.3m
  • 2019/20 points: 159
  • Points since restart: 46

The second-most in form player in the Fantasy Premier League standings, Chelsea midfielder Willian has put in blistering performances since the restart to take his points tally up to 159.

In the past four gameweeks, the Brazilian has hit double-figures on three occasions, missing out on making it a quadruple by just one point in Gameweek 33+ with nine.

Four goals in three matches and two assists in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over Crystal Palace has seen Willian become a key figure in Chelsea’s hunt for a Champions League spot, and with fixtures against Sheffield United and bottom of the table Norwich City to come, he could be a vital differential for FPL managers, with an ownership of just 11 per cent.
