The best FPL players to buy ahead of Blank Gameweek 31

Six-time top 5k finisher Utkarsh Dalmia – aka Zophar –  highlights some of the leading Fantasy Premier League candidates for a Free Hit squad.


Fantasy Premier League managers are just picking up the pieces from what was supposed to be a Double Gameweek 29 but we can waste no time brooding, with the season-defining run-in approaching and Blank Gameweek 31 looming large.

I’m not going into chip strategy too much in this piece, with that topic having already been discussed in a recent article.

Instead, I’m focusing on players who I believe are good picks for a Free Hit squad in Gameweek 31 or for you to acquire now.

Most of you will know this by now but the Premier League fixtures going ahead in Gameweek 31 are:

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Bournemouth
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
Burnley vs Watford
Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham

First off, let’s have a look at the xGOT (expected goals on target) non-penalty data from the last four Gameweeks to see which of these teams are showing form in attack:



In terms of my own team, Ayoze Pérez (£6.2m) is likely to make way for Sarr ahead of Saturday’s deadline.

I’m unsure if I’m going to use the Free Hit chip in Gameweek 31 as I only have four active players right now (Alexander-Arnold, Salah, Doherty and Jimenez) but with the Sarr transfer this week, I can get to seven by subsequently transferring in Jota and Mané for a hit.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) and Harvey Barnes (£6.1m) are the candidates to drop out.

The only players I would likely miss out on would be Pope, Antonio, Wood and another defender, so that’s a decision I’ll be making closer to the date.

Hope you enjoyed reading and good luck with whatever strategy you decide.


An FPL veteran of 10 seasons, Utkarsh Dalmia has been a member of the site right since 2009 and has finished in the top 5k in six of those campaigns, with a best finish of 17th in 2010. A Chelsea fan based in India, he relies heavily on statistics for his FPL decision-making process.

    Let's not get on Adrian's back too much guys. He's a backup. That's what he is. He came in expecting to play league cup games against Wycombe, not big champions league knockout games. Not many backup keepers would be up to it. That's why they're backups.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Nobody is expecting him to be Alisson but the mistake he made is pretty much unforgivable.

    2. how now brown cow

      Rubbish. He's an experienced premier league goalkeeper.

      Just not a very good one.

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nah, A top team needs a good back up keeper not a liability.

    4. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      When compared to his counterparts performance at the other end of the pitch. He may as well have been blindfolded in comparison.

    5. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years

      Any top flight keeper who is training with the likes of Allison every day and earning thousands a week should not make the mistake of kicking the ball into that area. Sunday league mistake.

      Yes get on Klopp's back instead for not getting a better backup keeper. Thin squad that's screwed if Alisson, VVD, or one of the front three get injured.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        As not having 2 of the front 3 vs Barca last season showed.

      2. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        They came back from 3-0 last season against Barca with even more injuries. No better back up keeper to Alisson wasn’t the mistake. They didn’t take their chances and the keeper made a howler.

    7. DAZZ
      • 5 Years

      As a substitute keeper you have to be prepared for every situation, you have to be on your toes, that mistake was a monumental lapse of concentration that cannot be let off playing in such a high stakes game like this, regardless of how nice of a guy he is, it is completely unacceptable

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        If Liverpool doesn't have better keeper to play and he is well known to make this kind of mistakes, who is to blame?!? He did his best. Karius had concussion.

    8. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Anyone want to blame salah for his repeated ability to test the keeper

  2. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Disappointed with the result but hats off to Atleti, they did what they came to do, frustrate us, and defend for their lives.

    Also, Oblak is an unreal keeper, one of the worlds best. MOTM

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      He's fantastic. As are Savic, Thomas and Saul. Fair play Atleti. You can win football matches in many ways.

      1. Ole Trafford
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Thomas was great

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Fantastic over both legs. Very intelligent in tight spaces, shields the defence and uses his body to create space. Phenomenal player if that's what he does weekly

          1. Ole Trafford
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            One of the only players Ye couldn’t squeeze and win the ball off of even when he had 2 or even 3 on him

      2. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Did you go the game? The drop in atmosphere after the 2cd Atleti goal was mental

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Nope. Next game I'll go to is trophy lift

          That goal ended the tie. I thought we played very well if I'm honest

      3. Queens of the South Age
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 23 days ago

        Been missing Jose Giminez this season too. Been almost a new back 4 with Godin, Luis Felipe and Juanfran also leaving in the summer.

        Amazing effort. Aupa Atleti!

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Can never fault Atleti for desire. I would like them to win the CL from here but I think City will be favourites

      4. El Presidente
          2 months, 23 days ago

          And Chelsea made a ridiculous offer and tried to include Kepa in it.... Atletico didn't even bother to reply

      5. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

        Atlético is an amazing club

      1. No Professionals

        Genuinely can't see the competition reaching that stage

        Was nice to see, hope he can keep the level.

        Waste of a spot imo but if he keeps it up it will only help the attack.

      Finding it very hard to motivate myself for this coming FPL week and beyond. Do we really think there entire season will be played? I’ve got all my chips except triple cap and I don’t know what to do for the best.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Yes. But not at the expected dates.

        Think FH in 31 is out of the question - you can't cancel it and would usually do it at the start of the week

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I only have 4 players currently. Plan was to free hit. Think I should change that?

      4. waldo666
        • 9 Years

        I think the only thin to do now in an FPL sense is not make any moves until the last possible minute, information now is key more than ever.

      Tomorrow’s back page of the Times saying all games in England will be played behind closed doors, as opposed to postponing the season.

      I’ve only seen a screen grab of the back page, but it’s good enough quality to zoom in and read the first few paragraphs: https://twitter.com/martynziegler/status/1237875834167242753?s=21

          All ticket holders (season and individual matches) will get the matches streamed, according to this story.

            Not a great trade off. Paying £50 a game to see what you lot watch via russia for free.

        Thanks for posting this.

        I wouldn't oppose that if it came to it. I think we all need our dosage of football, provided it's safe to play. I just find it infuriating that airports and tubes etc have no restrictions but football matches will.

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          No worries. Same, clearly our focus is on keeping as many of us in society as safe as possible. If it’s then possible to keep the PL season going safely, then it’s worth looking at all the options.

          football is entertainment

          FIFA, UEFA, FA or whatever authority don't care about the fans that's evident from past experiences. Why are they going ahead with games behind closed doors without the ones who make the game what it is? Just my opinion but I would think it's to fulfill contractual agreements, financial reasons.

          1. Berbinho's Forehead
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Agreed. Money talks of course

          Still find it baffling there isn’t blanket restrictions or at least checking at airports with arriving passengers. My parents came back from South Africa this morning and said there wasn’t a single mention of it. Madness.

          They sure do but just as long as they don't cross the line which for me Jose Mourhino does all the time now. He is no longer a winner just a bitter loser.

        Football and FPL aside I just hope Europe gets their act together with Covid-19. I'm almost two months off work now here in China and it hasn't been fun! Seeing Europe, including my home country (Ireland), being so slow to react with implementing preventative measures was a big concern.
        We are finally starting to get back to somewhat close to normality here...stay safe all.

        1. Daniel S.

            I'm a Science teacher and I've been getting paid. Most got full salaries for February, March could be a different story for many. Schools are still closed indefinitely but most other businesses are beginning to get back to normal.
            Small and medium sized businesses have taken a huge hit 🙁

          Stay safe and well yourself Phil. They're implementing as many safety measures as they can here. Some schools are being closed when there's a threat. HSE advising sporting bodies and as they're the biggest domestic games the NHL and NFL games will go ahead this weekend. Even without a government it's in decent control so far but predicted to decline.

            That's good mate, it's just I've heard from many in Ireland that they left it far too late to warn them elderly and others susceptible to it. There were pharmacies trying to sell packs of masks then in recent days for 150 Euros... disgusting!

          AC

          You don’t bench Robbo surely. Everton defence is utter cack and he’s an attacking mid at heart.

          SU attack is very dull -I’id fancy a result there slightly more than the WH match and well Southampton defence is horrid.

            Ah glad your said A and C mate that’s who I am currently starting, only considered Robbo to hedge bets especially with Adrian being in goal, but I have to start him really especially as you said with Everton’s defence and Robbo of course has attacking potential too, thanks for your input mate, greatly appreciate it!!

        Embarrassing from klopp to blame them defending with 2 banks of 4. Blame your attackers, particularly salah, for being wasteful, and you goalkeeper for making it too easy.

          A centre forward can make numerous mistakes by not doing his job and putting the ball into the net but a goalkeeper just has to make one mistake to be the fall guy.

                  I never said I was happy that they were out. Off topic I said it is good for fpl because less likely that there will be rotation.

                  I replied to someone saying it wasn’t purely Adrian’s fault for his howler because they had enough chances which they didn’t take, that is hardly “trashing” their attackers. Also I said it was a bad mistake for an experienced pl keep, which it was.

                  You were making your comments to wind up and piss people off, I wasn’t. Big difference and absolutely no hypocrisy

        Liverpool's misery in stats

        This was the first time Liverpool have failed to progress from a two-legged tie in European competition under Jurgen Klopp, having previously been successful in each of the previous 10.

        Liverpool have lost a home European game at Anfield for the first time under Jurgen Klopp - with this their first defeat at home in Europe since October 2014.

        Liverpool have fallen at the last 16 stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2006, also as the reigning champions after lifting the trophy in 2005 at this season's final destination - Istanbul.

        This was the first ever Champions League game to see four goals scored in extra time.

        Since the start of the 2017-18 campaign, Liverpool's goalkeepers have made more errors leading to goals in the Champions League than any other team's keepers in this period.

        The writers over at Skysports had their Weetabix this morning.

        How many players will end up testing positive for Covid-19?

        Just takes 1 from a team and the whole match will be postponed.

        Can’t see the behind closed doors policy working for long. Look at Italy as an example. Season will have to be delayed.

          I doubt this will go away anytime soon 🙁 The situation is not as bad as in Italy yet though. Therefore empty stadions now is correct decision. They were late in Italy.

          It's done man! It's over.

          We need to figure out what their next move is on the chessboard.
          One thing is pretty sure, the Elites are manipulating and sacrificing their pawns for an endgame.

          We're ready.

        Liverpool should sell Adrian just like they ship Karius after CL final.
