FanDuel

FanDuel Focus – Gameweek 38

It’s time for our final FanDuel article of the season as we visit our partner game to consider the various contests on offer and also propose an XI for the last day of the campaign.

There’s only one window to enter teams, with all ten fixtures running simultaneously on Sunday. The deadline is at the 3pm kick-offs.

To add a little last-day spice, we’ve also set up a ‘Beat the Scout’ contest for the window, giving you the chance to take on a combined Mark and Jonty XI for a shot at £50 in cash.

The contest is for FanDuel newcomers and veterans alike. For FanDuel first-timers, simply register and deposit funds and you can have a crack at besting Mark and Jonty’s combined team. Vets, meanwhile, just need to follow the link and sort out their Scout-busting team.

Everyone who surpasses Mark and Jonty’s score will be entered into a draw to win £50 in cash – that’s cash, not credit.

For newcomers to FanDuel, check out our pre-season strategy guide, which provides some hints on which types of players to target.

My Strongest XI

Joel Pereira (£4m)

John Terry (£7.4m)

Adrian Mariappa (£7.8m)

Callum Chambers (£8.5m)

Scott McTominay (£5m)

Luka Milivojevic (£7.8m)

Cesc Fabregas (£11.5m)

Mesut Ozil (£12.6m)

Daniel Sturridge (£10.2m)

Gabriel Jesus (£11.8m)

Harry Kane (£13.4m)

The Key Picks

We couldn’t overlook Manchester United’s third-choice keeper Joel Pereira following Jose Mourinho’s strong hint that the youngster is set to for his debut against Crystal Palace. The young Portuguese’s bargain price-tag alone makes him a tempting pick, but he should also pick up a few saves as he attempts to deny Christian Benteke. Furthermore, a clean sheet can’t be ruled out – United have conceded 12 goals in 18 matches at Old Trafford. Only Spurs have a better defensive record at home (9 goals from 19).

John Terry notched the opener at Watford for Chelsea – reminding us of his goal threat and helping him score an impressive 29.25 FanDuel points with 5 CBIs also registered. We’re expecting the centre-back to turn in a similar performance as the champions host Sunderland in a match set to be his last for the club. He’ll likely be pinpointed at set-pieces to deliver a parting goal and, promisingly, the Black Cats have conceded the most headed attempts (60 in 18) on road trips this term.

The Watford back-line has been hit by a host of injuries as they welcome an in-form Manchester City attack to Vicarage Road. Adrian Mariappa is all but guaranteed to face the onslaught and should be busy picking up defensive FanDuel points on Sunday. The centre-back’s 67 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBIs) and 18 tackles have produced a healthy 20-point average over his last six outings.

We’ve spent big on our third and final defender. Middlesbrough are in store for a tough afternoon at Liverpool with the home side knowing a win will confirm Champions League football next season. Calum Chambers is our pick from the Boro defence – he’s averaged over 10 CBIs and just under three tackles per match this campaign to accrue a 20.8 FanDuel point average.

Similar to our keeper, our first midfielder mainly makes the line-up as a Jose Mourinho budget buy. We don’t have much to go on for Man United’s Scott McTominay, although he did pick up an encouraging 8.25 FanDuel points in under ten minutes when he made a late cameo against Arsenal in Gameweek 36. At a cut-price 5m, the central midfielder acts as an ideal enabler to fit in big-hitters elsewhere.

Our next selection’s end-to-end role suits the FanDuel scoring matrix. Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic netted a penalty to score 28.75 points in the 4-0 victory over Hull City last time out. The Serb has recorded 28 CBIs and 15 tackles over the last six matches to highlight his combativeness. He’s also drawn nine fouls over that period and spot-kick duties underline his threat going forward. An 18-point average over those six fixtures, and a reasonable price, should make him a worthwhile pick at Old Trafford.

Cesc Fabregas arrived from the bench against Watford to score the goal that ensured another win for Antonio Conte’s outfit. Considering he was rested for most of the encounter, it means the Spaniard looks an assured starter for their closing match with Sunderland and his recent influence promises more returns. The Blues midfielder has now tallied five assists and a pair of goals in his last seven starts, while a 41-point average in his previous six home appearances indicates he’s a sound pick in FanDuel against the basement dwellers.

Although we would have liked to fit in Alexis Sanchez as our Arsenal weapon of choice against Everton, Mesut Ozil’s performance last time out in the win over the Black Cats has convinced us to go for the midfielder. The German created 12 chances in the 2-0 win over David Moyes’ side to provide an assist and a 49.75-point FanDuel haul – enough to exceeded Sanchez’s 41.75 points despite the latter’s brace. Three goals and four assists in ten matches for Ozil demonstrates his improved output over the run-in and his creativity could be key to penetrating a stubborn Toffees rearguard in a must-win match for the Gunners.

It’s sensible to pick a differential or two in a FanDuel line-up and we’ve gone for Daniel Sturridge here. The Liverpool forward flourished and scored as part of a front two positioned ahead of a diamond formation against Southampton. He should have plenty of opportunities to net again – the Reds will throw waves of attacks at visitors Boro and the relegated side have conceded 11 goals in their last three away trips.

Gabriel Jesus continues to indicate he has a bright future under Pep Guardiola. A goal and assist in the 3-1 West Brom victory reflected his combined goal threat and playmaking skills. The Brazilian has notched six goals and served up three assists in seven Man City starts, averaging 35 FanDuel points per match. That makes him difficult to ignore for the trip to Watford – the Hornets have leaked eight goals in three outings.

Romelu Lukaku was leading the race for the Golden Boot, but after Harry Kane’s four-goal display at Leicester City the Spurs frontman has made his move. He’ll be keen to further the gap as Spurs roll up to Hull. The Tigers have only two clean sheets (conceding 28 goals in 18 matches) at the KCOM Stadium this term while the England forward now has 12 goals and four assists in eight starts. Over the last four weeks, Kane’s 24 goal attempts and 14 shots on target suggest his irrepressible form will continue to the season’s final whistle.

                  I'm to worried selling Haz, and actually think he'll be a good differential ghost gw

                    More I read into it the more I think he's not going to start/play.

                    Especially this...

                  Coin toss.

                  I suspect the back 5 will be Moses, Terry, Luiz, Cahill, Alonso.

                      3 days, 5 hours ago

                      Surely Conte would not take Azpi's 100% record away though?

                      Will Hazard play? I have no idea whether to ship for Coutinho or not!!!!

                        Your guess is as good as anyone's. Conte impossible to guess right now.

                        Given the rotation over the past couple weeks I think it is more likely than not that he will come in off the bench, but not start.

                        My plan is to ship Hazard/JWP to Couts/Fabs for -4.

                          I'm thinking he won't - 4 starts in 13 games ahead of a cup final, and in a pointless game, would be madness imo. I think Willian and Pedro will start, or even a youngster.

                          I've done that move. Hazard annoyed me in DGW so gets the chop!

                        A) Alli > Coutinho
                        Or
                        B) Gabbi > Llorente ?

                          B

                            Have owned Llorente a couple times this year and he is so inconsistent and injury prone.

                            Both?

                            But B if only one.

                                Only got 1 FT. Not sure if either worth a hit

                                Is Alli gonna get rested?

                              What was your final OR last year?
                              What is your CURRENT OR?
                              Where do you hope to be at the end of GW38?
                              Are you happy with your OR at the moment?

                              For me:

                              Last year: 3,076
                              Current: 7,966
                              Hope to get higher than where I am now after this weekend.
                              Yes, didn't expect to get into top 10k again.

                                  Usually don't keep playing past November but kept with it this year, hoping to keep top 5k

                                                          Hoped for something better but can't complain.

                                                              Great improvement on last year

                                                              Still have faint dreams of a top 1k finish (~20 points off though)
                                                              Overall happy but I have made silly errors in judgement over the last few weeks which has probably cost me that top 1k. E.g. not trusting Bavies would play

                                                                                        Did some horrible moves at the beginning, I gues I even transfered in PVA for a hit and at the weekend decided to bench him. 😀 but around gw5 I found out about this page and big thanks goes to all of you, people. 🙂 becoming a member next season for sure!

I have the ‘template front 8’, but with Eriksen instead of Alli. I guess Eriksen will be better to have this gameweek, well-rested and all, so not sure if I will get Coutinho in for him. But option B makes sense.

The -4 is somewhat off-putting but if I did B and Hazard didn't play I may not get 11 out. My bench is Stephens, Holgate, Anichebe and there are question marks over Alonso's gametime as it is :s

He wants to get rid of Sturridge this summer so he will put him in the shop window.

                                                                                                                                      Because Sturridge is a better striker and is classy - but I agree, it's not certain that he will start. Depends on what Klopp expects and what he fears - Origi certainly works harder but Liverpool might need Sturridge's guile against a defensive Boro.

Leicester have no Morgan or Huth, so I LOVE that I have King and Stannis to come off the bench. Leicester have been awful defensively since Morgan was injured. I don't want to take a hit so Alexis is off the table.
