Which relegation-threatened FPL players will be most motivated for season run-in?

Fantasy Premier League managers would do well to consider players at the wrong end of the table when picking their squads for Project Restart.

Even in a normal season, Gameweek 30 is usually when we start identifying which clubs have more to play for than others, and those in danger of relegation always fall into this category.

The fact that we have all been given unlimited transfers makes considering these options even easier.

After all, the form book has been chucked out of the window but the league places remain unchanged. 

Those hovering around the bottom end of the table will do everything possible to secure top-flight survival during their final run in. 

So, it’s time to look at what’s on offer with a fresh pair of eyes…

Jack Grealish 

  • Price: £6.4m
  • Ownership: 21.3%
  • Next four fixtures: SHU + CHE | new | WOL | liv

A player under £7.0m with 14 attacking returns in less than 30 games is one that simply can’t be ignored. 

In many ways, it’s puzzling to think how a player of Jack Grealish’s (£6.4m) calibre is playing for a 19th placed Premier League team than one challenging for European honours. If things had been different he would have been a full England international by now. 

In my view, he is a must-have for the final run-in, for several reasons. 

Firstly, Aston Villa will be featuring in the Double Gameweek with two games at Villa Park. Of course, the ‘home factor’ may be less significant with the absence of fans but they are must-win games for Dean Smith’s men. 

At this stage, they cannot afford to sit back and hope for the best. They will have to go for goals, even if they concede a lot in the process. 

Since August, among all sub-£7.0m players, Grealish is top for goals scored, second for final third touches (836) and second for shots. 

He the absolute talisman for Aston Villa too, having been involved with 41% of their Premier League goals this season. You would need to have a really good reason not to have him in your FPL team.

Teemu Pukki 

  • Price: £6.5m
  • Ownership: 12.9%
  • Next four fixtures: SOU | EVE | ars | BHA

At the start of the season, it seemed that Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) could do no wrong. He began his Premier League career by scoring six goals in the first five games, becoming the first real bandwagon of the campaign.

But by Gameweek 13 Pukki and the Norwich attack seemed to be finished, as he failed to score in eight consecutive matches. 

Since then it has become clear that the Norwich forward likes to score in batches, going on a run of goals before tailing off again. 

This kind of pattern is frustrating but at least we know that his next purple patch could always just around the corner. Will we have to wait for long? 

He may be completely overlooked by many FPL managers as Norwich don’t have a Double Gameweek but their fixtures in the next few weeks do have some appeal.

And, as far as value is concerned, he compares well with similarly-priced assets this season. 

Among forwards priced at £6.5m or less, he ranks second for penalty area touches (158) and second for goal attempts (74). 

Only Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.5m) has scored more goals than him in that price category. 

In keeping with the theme of targetting players with something to motivate them, I think there could be a strong case of sacrificing a Double Gameweek 30+ player for Pukki. 

Norwich cannot afford any more slip-ups and face a Southampton team who appear to be relatively safe from relegation first-up. 

But even after that, the Canaries face Everton, Arsenal and Brighton, all of whom have had defensive issues this season, so even if you were to go all-in for the Double Gameweek, I think you could consider him beyond it if you’re Free Hitting or Wildcarding in the near future.

Ismaïla Sarr 

Watford and Wolves double-up for Gameweek 22 Scout Picks
Ismaila Sarr celebrates a goal for Watford
  • Price: £6.4m
  • Ownership: 2.7% 
  • Next four fixtures: LEI | bur | SOU | che

Ever since Nigel Pearson was appointed manager at Vicarage Road, Watford have defied the odds and have shown their strength as a tough unit to beat. Their win against an unstoppable Liverpool team was a sign of how far they have come.

One player of the most influential players for the Hornets pre-lockdown was Ismaïla Sarr (£6.4m). 

Since Pearson arrived in Hertfordshire, the winger has scored four goals and registered four assists. 

To give you an idea of just how tricky he has been to defend against, he has attempted more take-ons than the likes of Harvey Barnes (£6.2m) and Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) this season, despite not being a first-team regular for much of the campaign and missing out through injury too. 

Also, Sarr has only scored one less goal than Mason Mount (£6.2m) despite registering almost half as many minutes as the Chelsea man. 

As with Pukki, there’s a strong case to have Sarr in your team as early as next week. 

Watford may be out of the relegation zone but they will certainly need to score more goals to keep afloat and if there’s anyone that will be producing substantial attacking involvements for them it will be the Senegal international.

Callum Wilson

  • Price: £7.4m
  • Ownership: 4.7%
  • Next four fixtures: CRY | wol | NEW | mun

It has not been the best of seasons for Callum Wilson (£7.4m) or Bournemouth, but he did show some promise just before March’s coronavirus outbreak.

In the last six matches before the league was suspended, the mid-priced forward found the net three times.

Now, whether Wilson can instantly get his scoring touch back after a long break does remain to be seen.

That said, his struggles in front of goal haven’t been for lack of trying this season. 

After all, he has more penalty area touches than the fellow forwards Troy Deeney (£6.2m) and Calvert-Lewin this season. And for strikers priced £7.5m or below, Wilson is fourth-highest for big chances created, hinting at some assist potential too. 

Bournemouth are due to face Crystal Palace and Newcastle United in two of their first three games back from lockdown and perhaps those tests could be an early indication of where Wilson is at.

In the last 12 months we have seen two different sides to the England international.

Last season he registered 26 attacking returns as Bournemouth finished 11 points away from the relegation zone in 14th place.

But despite some early promise in 2019/20, Wilson went on a completely barren spell between Gameweek 8 and 23 with his price duly falling by £0.5m in the process.

But we know this is a man with proven Premier League and international pedigree, so maybe all he needed was some rest and bit of luck on his side again. Only time will tell.

    How's this looking? BB in GW30+ and WC right after.
    I'm happy with the bench boost players with this draft

    Leno Reina
    Egan Basham Bellerin Engels Ritchie
    Sterling DeBruyne Grealish Fleck Cantwell
    Aguero Aubameyang Pukki

    Looking good? Any advice?
    Cheers all

    1. JfA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I'm going with SGW players rather than go Ars or Villa bar AUB and Grealish.

  2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I think I will settle with this BB team.
    Triple on Villa but maybe Villa have something to stay in EPL.
    Who will be your C this gw?

    Hendo, Reina
    TAA, Egan, Lundy, Targett, Lascelles
    Sterling, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Cantwell
    Kun, Auba, Nketiah

    Cheers 🙂

  3. waltzingmatildas

    Team at the moment is
    Pope krul
    TAA Doherty otamendi ctaylor kiko
    Salah kdb Bruno sarr saka
    Auba ings jota

    I've been set on BB, but taken a step back and maybe I just want to change Otamendi and Ings. Kiko could go but not urgent.
    Then when I downgrade auba could look at upgrading jota.

    So, OK to FH instead?

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No wc left

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I think so. Team is in pretty good shape imo

    3. LE CHARO
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Team is in pretty good shape, except Otamendi there is nobody that urgently needs to go, so it's ok to FH imo.

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think I'm leaning that way now. I just got carried away with free transfers and BB.
      Now to get a FH team sorted!

  4. Ed
    • 10 Years

    Is I use unlimited transfers and play the FH this week, does my team revert back to what it was in the last gameweek that was played?

    1. HamezMace
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It’ll revert back to your GW38 team, before the game was updated.

      There is a hot topic on this, ‘unlimited transfers FAQ’

      1. Greek Freak
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Is it even possible to play the FH chip given there are unlimited transfers and no possibility to take a hit?

        1. HamezMace
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yes.
          Some people want to FH for the DGW then get their GW38 team back.
          Preserves team value as well.

        2. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yes and I have. I like my team as it is and have no WC

          1. Greek Freak
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            You've already activated it? What were the mechanics, out of curiosity? Normally from what I remember it only becomes available after you've made enough transfers to warrant a hit.

            1. Wild Rover
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Yeah, just make a transfer and it gives you the option when confirming

              1. Greek Freak
                • 6 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                Cool, that settles my question then.

  5. Sid123

    Thoughts on these two potential bb teams with WC week after. Want to keep TAA, Fernandes and Jimenez because of value.

    Reina Leno
    Baldock Egan O'Connell TAA Lascelles
    Sterling De Bruyne Grealish McGinn Fernandes
    Aguero Jimenez Nketiah
    With 2m left in the bank, not sure where to spend it.

    Or

    Ederson Leno
    Stevens O'Connell Lundstram TAA Lascelles
    Grealish De Bruyne Saka Fernandes McGinn
    Auba Aguero Jimenez

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I prefer the first one. If you can get Doherty I would

      1. Sid123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I am 0.1 short annoyingly from a straight upgrade on Lascelles.

  6. Feanor

    One of my starting Bundesliga defenders is done for the season after testing positive for glandular fever. Seems like they waited till just before kickoff to announce the news.

      I will pray for you.

  7. JfA

    Is a Sheff Utd defence triple up too risky?

    1. HamezMace
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It seems template

      1. JfA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        It just seems by doing so you're banking on Sheff clean sheets then I'm throwing Grealish in, seems like one result has to fail?

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Not really. SHU defenders have a decent chance of attacking returns and then they play Newcastle for a cs

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not really especially if you have Henderson and 2 defs.

    3. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm going with just Hendo and hoping they concede in both games

    4. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If you go only 1 or 2 SHU defenders EO will make you want them not keeping a CS.

  8. Greek Freak

    Having seen people contemplate the FH chip. I understand your thinking that you're happy with your team for the run-in etc. But can the chip even be activated this GW? The FH chip only becomes available on a normal week after you've made enough transfers to warrant a hit - exactly like the wildcard chip.

    With no possibility of taking a points hit this week, will the FH chip even be available to activate?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      good outside the box thinking, but it's a transfer that triggers it not a hit

      1. Greek Freak
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Really? I don't think so. From what I remember, the transfer that triggers the FH chip being available has always been the first transfer that would require a -4 point hit. When there are no hits to be taken, I don't see how the FH chip will be available to activate.

        I'm just wondering from an academic point of view I guess, I have no plans to FH this week anyway. Just genuinely wondering if it's available to access.

        1. JfA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It most definitely is available and I've used it about 40 times since Wednesday 😀

          1. Greek Freak
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Ah ok. But now the follow-up question is how do you play it 40 times when you can't deactivate it? 😀 (unless I remember that bit wrong too, haha)

            1. JfA
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I mean I've changed my team about 40 times.

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes mate, if you go to make a transfer then it comes up as an option.

      1. Greek Freak
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I'm genuinely surprised - was it always like this? I actually thought there's no way to activate it unless you make enough transfers for a hit, like the wildcard.

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Hmm, I’m not sure what it used to do to be honest.

          1. Greek Freak
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            This won't make any practical difference because I'm not planning to use it now anyway, but I'll bookmark this and check if it's possible to activate the chip next week without making enough transfers to warrant a hit. Just out of curiosity, because I remember it being exactly like the wildcard in terms of the mechanics of activating it.

    Settled for 11 Double Gameweek players couldn't justify bringing in another Sheff Utd player to make the full compliment and given I am using BB it should be a fun Gameweek.

    Chips: BB, WC, FH

    I'm thinking of trying to build out a "balanced" 30+ team rather than going all-in, losing value on guys I want for the run in, and forcing a WC next week w/o tons of info on how players/teams are reacting to the layoff. Thoughts on this? Too cute?

    BB GW 30+

      How about Jimi & Mahrez > Auba & McGinn?

      I like it a lot, very similar to the team I'm building long term (no WC left).
      My only concern is the City triple up which is not ideal with their following fixtures.

        Good thoughts to ponder on this. Problem I see is that I'll almost certainly want to take a -4 with this 3 City approach, and I hate to build that into a plan. Aka flip Augero and Mahrez for Auba and Son (or Kane and Richarlison). Just not sure how I *don't* go 3 City attack here.

          I don't know the value you have on them or if you have the funds, but you could maybe do Doherty, Mahrez, DCL > Lascelles, Saka, Auba. Just a thought.

    Have a decent pre COVID squad and have decided to FH in 30 then WC in 31/32 then BB on the best GW after. WC in 31/32 will mean I have a good squad to see me through the last 6 or 7 games and will have 1 or 2 weeks of data to consider. FH in 38 is risky as it could be a total lottery with teams playing youngsters. I will WC players in from teams who are fighting for something until GW38. Thoughts?

    Pope / Button
    Macguire / Boly / Kiko / Lascelles / Williams
    Salah / KDB / Bruno / Barnes / Sarre
    Jota / DCL / Ings

    Anyone else going Jesus instead of Aguero?

      Thinking it about it. Makes a lot of sense

      Shd get equal mins, jesus cheaper and probably a touch better now

        No way is Jesus better than Kun. My god man.

      Could pan out but Aguero’s usually the man to have at the Etihad and will be a popular captaincy choice I think, it might hurt to go without.

    This Jimenez incoming baby news is concerning me.
    Vardy experience says sell Jimenez 😀

    Anyone else thinking same ??

      It also suggests Jota could be more appealing if he's not sharing points with the father to be.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Exactly
        I am looking at Jimenez Siass or Jota Doherty option atm

        1. Jet5605
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Jota might still be on a high after winning the FIFA PS4 tournament 🙂

        I’m planning to go with both on a WC after the double and re-assess once the baby is born, could easily switch to Tammy

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I am now circumspect about Jimenez. Might get jota instead and buy Doherty with exchange

            I’m keeping for WHU, will reassess on a WC next GW

              WC in hand makes it easier

    GW30+ only

    A) Kun
    B) Sterling

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Aguero

    2. Gregor

    Thoughts on this BB with no second WC?

    Henderson - Leno
    TAA - Saiss - Lundstram - Stevens - Lascelles
    Salah - KdB - Fernandes - Grealish - Saka
    Aguero - Jimenez - Pukki

    1. LE CHARO

        thank you. Finding it tricky choosing a squad I'd like to keep in GW31+ onwards.

    Any chelsea fans who can help on the below?

    1) Best attacking GW30 choice (who is nailed on?)
    2) Is Alonso first choice?

    1. johnnymorrocco
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      not a chelsea fan but leaning pulisic and I think Alfonso's days numbered IMO

    2. Herculeez
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      1) Abraham
      2) maybe, but no way to know for sure

  25. kobewan

    Hello Guys, how does this team look for GW 30? can I keep this team for at least 2 more GWs?

    Henderson ( Adrian)

    Egan, TAA, Lascelles, Doherty(Hanley)
    KBD, Salah, Saka, Fleck (Douglas Luiz)
    Auba, Kun (Ayew)

    With WC, BB and FH still intact, I'm struggling to see past BB30/WC 31/ Keep FH for emergencies. Anyone got any curveball strategies out there?

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah. I'm going to bb30 and wc33. It's possible to get a good team out for 3 weeks and still get 7bb players in 30

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Looking at this option as well as I'm not interested in AVL / ARS other than Grealish / Auba.

        What is your plan for manoeuvring around the triple City you will have post the upcoming GW?

      2. johnnymorrocco
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        would love to see your team

        please share team 🙂

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      In same boat and currently also thinking BB30+ / WC31+ and FH thereafter. I'm only really interested in winning ML's and I like the idea of having a whole GW's FH late in the season to get differentials rather than a BB late in the season when I'm only really adding 3 players to my side.

      Holding BB until late would mean needing to carry 3 decent bench players from WC31+ most likely instead of spending the little cash I have (due to v-low TV) on a strong XI.

  27. Tonyawesome69

    Have WC, BB and FH chips left.

    How does the team look going forward after GW30+?

    I think the team is OK and will FH in GW30+. Probably BB GW33+. Very difficult to gauge the form of players so don't think the unlimited transfers is the best option, DGW isn't hugely appealing and have WC to sort the team later. Probably look to get rid of Salah, Traore and Ings after DGW

    1.8itb
    Pope Ryan
    Saiss TAA Steph Lasc Williams
    Mane Salah Bruno KDB Traore
    Ings DCL Jota

  28. Jet5605

    So many folks with no chips left are gonna get sucked into DGW fever and will be wondering how to get rid of Mings, D Luiz, Leno, McBurnie in a couple of weeks.
    I was set on FH in GW30plus but am now thinking of not using any chips and just bringing in the DGW players I want to hold such as Kun, Grealish, Henderson, Egan and Auba (already have KDB)

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I wouldn't want to hold Kun and Auba with the likes of Rashford, Vardy offering better value. Shef utd run into poor fixtuers as well soon.

      1. Jet5605
        • 7 Years

        Good point

  29. JelliedSpark968
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Thoughts on this FH team?

    Leno, fodder
    Stevens, Lundstram, Justin, Doherty, Kelly
    Mane, KdB, Mahrez, Grealish, Davis
    Auba, Jesus, McBurnie

  30. Emah3

    Who do people see as a lock for GW 31+ and beyond (/31++)?

    I think mine are Fernandes, Rashford, TAA, KDB and Jimenez although the baby post slight higher up may change that.
