Pick the best Gameweek 18 players for a free chance to win £10k with Fantasy5


Sponsored by Fantasy5


Fantasy Premier League managers have another FREE chance at winning £10,000 with Fantasy5 in Blank Gameweek 18.

Even though there is a reduced fixture list, you can still have a stab at picking the correct five key players and claim the prize.

In Fantasy5, all you have to do is select one player from each of their five nominated matches of the upcoming Gameweek. If all of your players score more points than their respective Fantasy5 ‘points targets’, then you win.

And there is no reason why you cannot take home all that cash in Blank Gameweek 18 with some favourable fixtures midweek.

Fantasy5 is accessible for Fantasy managers as it follows the exact same scoring system as FPL apart from bonus points.

For the more detailed lowdown, head here.

The competition is limited to one entry per person per round and you have to get your submissions in before kick-off in the first eligible match.

If two or more entrants correctly select five players who all score more than their points target, then the prize pot is split among all winners.

BLANK GAMEWEEK 18 FIXTURES

The five matches in this round are:

  • Sheffield United v Newcastle United
  • Wolves v Everton
  • Burnley v Manchester United
  • Manchester City v Brighton and Hove Albion
  • Arsenal v Crystal Palace

The deadline is at 18:00 GMT on Tuesday, January 12.

SCOUT’S BLANK GAMEWEEK 18 PICKS

Matt Ritchie (4.5) is my chosen representative from Newcastle’s trip to Sheffield United.

While Callum Wilson feels like an obvious choice, there is greater scope for his former Bournemouth colleague to creep above his predicted points threshold.

No player set to feature in Bramall Lane’s Tuesday-night clash has created more chances in their last four matches than Ritchie (eight), who faces a Blades outfit still without a clean sheet this season.

Romain Saïss (6.5) is an easy choice for me. He only needs to add to his impressive goal-scoring tally this season (and avoid conceding a hatful and/or getting booked) and he will have beaten Fantasy5‘s predicted points.

The Wolves man is top among all defenders for shots in the box over the last four matches, yielding two goals. In Blank Gameweek 18, he faces an Everton side that ranks inside the bottom four for headed attempts since Gameweek 14.

Marcus Rashford (8.5) will need two attacking returns to surpass his predicted points against Burnley but I think he stands a good chance of doing that.

The latest injury update on Paul Pogba suggests Rashford will return to the left-hand side of Manchester United’s attack on Tuesday night – bad news for Burnley. Over the last four matches, they have given up 18 chances down their right flank, the second-worst in the Premier League over the same period.

Meanwhile, Rashford is as much of an away-day specialist as Fernandes this season. Both of his double-digit hauls in 2020/21 have come on the road, where he is yet to blank after the first 17 Gameweeks and averages 8.4 FPL points per game thus far.

Ilkay Gündogan‘s (7.5) more advanced role in recent matches elevates his Fantasy appeal for Gameweek 18.

In the last four matches, he ranks third among Manchester City players for key passes but has outperformed both Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling for shots in the box, big chances and shots on target.

Kieran Tierney‘s (6.5) marauding attitude can help him exceed his predicted points for Gameweek 18 when Crystal Palace come to the Emirates Stadium.

Outside their 5-1 win at West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 11, the Eagles have scored just six goals in seven away matches this season while Tierney has created more chances than any other Arsenal player since Gameweek 15.

LUKE’S BLANK GAMEWEEK 18 PICKS

  • Roman Saiss (6.5): The Wolves centre-back is one of the biggest set-piece threats with his nine shots on goal in the last four matches and seven in the box, top among all defenders in both categories. A clean sheet and a goal would conformably see him surpass the required 6.5 points.
  • Bruno Fernandes (9.5): In order to beat the 9.5 points threshold, attacking picks will need to register in excess of two attacking returns; this is also true of all the picks 7.5 and above though so why not go for the man who specialises in double-digit hauls? With penalties and set pieces, Fernandes has become one of the most reliable Fantasy assets in recent history. No brainer for me.
  • Joao Cancelo (6.5): The Manchester City full-back has become an established fixture in Pep Guardiola’s squad recently, having started 11 of the last 12 Premier League games. City are the bookies’ favourite for a clean sheet in Gameweek 18 against a goal-shy Brighton outfit. Meanwhile, Cancelo has the highest xGI per 90 of any regularly starting defender this season. 
  • Callum Wilson (6.5): A match that appears deprived of Fantasy options on paper means I’m playing “safe” with Callum Wilson. The talismanic forward has been involved with 71% of Newcastle’s goals when on the pitch and even during sub-par performances, he has penalties to fall back on. 
  • Kieran Tierney (6.5): Arsenal’s left-back will need an attacking return and a clean sheet to hit his quota but right now it looks very achievable. Arsenal have back-to-back shut-outs and Tierney looks a real threat having recorded a goal and assist in Gameweek 17.

    Thanks for the advice all.

    Which do you prefer from

    A) Stones in a 442
    B) Foden in 343

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I'd rather punt on Foden.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years

      Easy A

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      B. It's a FH, try and target the big hauls - which Foden is very capable of and worth the gamble.

    With lots of cup games now out of the way, what (if anything) are you taking from what we've seen?

    Did anyone return to fitness or form that you're interested in? Were there any benchings that surprised you? Was anyone rested which gives you confidence for GW18 or beyond?

    1. Steve The Spud

      ake and Laporte injured gives me confidence for 18 and beyond that Dias and stones are nailed for the time being

      I think Wolves might wake up - first clean sheet, Traore goal.

          Boly back surely soon though right?

          I think Neto looks incredible every time I see him play so likely gonna go for him. Already one of the best value in the game and possibly has a higher ceiling.

      Digne and the rest of the Everton supporting cast fit again is good for DCL

      I think generally speaking having the FA Cup third round around the winter break helped PL sides and they generally played stronger lineups than they have done in recent years. However, I wonder whether this will continue in round 4 as this will be played at a much more congested time.

      I think Klopp recognised his team needed to try and play their way into form, hence the strong lineup against Villa, they did manage 4 goals but only once Villa's youngsters tired, I'm still not convinced Liverpool are firing on all cylinders and the captaincy in GW19 on Salah is not assured at all.

      I also watched the Blackpool - WBA game, WBA were outplayed by league 1 opponents. When Sam joins there is normally a dip before it gets better and we are firmly in that dip now. I'd avoid any investment in WBA until we start to see that upturn, the Liverpool game was a false dawn. In terms of players Ajayi was the target of every set piece so when WBA do improve he might not be a bad shout.

      Arsenal's second choice players (willian, pepe etc) did not impress at all against Newcastle, in fact Newcastle should have won in normal time. Once the recently impressing first choice players (ESR, Laca, etc) came on, they looked a lot better and eased clear. I think those looking to Arsenal players for GW18 can have confidence in picking aany of: Leno, Tierney, Holding, ESR, Saka, Auba or Lacazette.Just on Newcastle, Clarke played very well and Andy Carroll looked fitter than I've seen him for years, he played well and is such a unique option for Newcastle.

      At City, Pep played Diaz and Stones and Cancelo 45 mins each while Walker and Mendy got 90. Its a fools errand trying to predict Pep but if I had to guess I would say this bodes well for the guys playing 45, I think Walker and Mendy needed the minutes for fitness. Jesus played 75 mins which is good and Aguero is out Wednesday so anyone looking to punt on City attack could go for Jesus. Sterling and Torres wasn't fit for the game which should alert people on FH. It might make Foden or Mahrez more of an option too.

      Brighton ended up going toe to toe in a slug fest with Newport County which was a fantastic game, although I'd quite frankly be alarmed if I was a brighton fan. Their Keeper Steele put in one of the most memorable goalkeeping displays I can remember, being absolutely dreadful in normal time, flapping at everything, causing an own goal, but then being absolutely brilliant at saving penalties in the shootout. I'd captain KDB against this lot.

    What on earth is going on?
    Spurs vs Villa might be cancelled but Spurs vs Fulham might on in GW18?

    Obviously a bit out the loop...

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Adaptability.

    2. BrockLanders

      KANE (C) IS GOING ON!!

  5. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Tricky decision RE Kane if not playing a chip over 18/19. FUL is obviously a great fixture, but it likely means losing Salah.

  6. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    If it's finally Tottenham facing Fulham then Kane(C) > KDB(C) imo, cause I think Areola has covid

        " I think " means I made the conclusion cause I didn't saw him in the FA cup squad, the fixture source is the athletic

          Rodak is really good too. Think Parker was just giving him a game.

        It's the Kane or Son question again

      3. CRO KLOPP

        My question is: how many players are enough to not use a FH in gmwk18?
        Second question: is it crazy to go without a chip in 19?
        Thanks all and GL

      4. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        All the talk will be on the spurs game naturally - could we have a city chat (I imagine we will!)

        Cancelo/Dias and KDB seem a lock for a lot, but who would be the third?

        Aguero maybe isolating, Sterling with a rumoured match fitness issue, and other players not guaranteed, what are the thoughts on the third a lot?

      5. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        What chips (if any) do you still have confidence to play at this time? I'm thinking more DGW19 here but most people need to prepare in some way for that now. Are you still going to play either a triple captain or bench boost despite the obvious concern of players missing out through Covid or worse still - games being postponed?

      6. seanmcging
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I did have 9 out before the recent news, but losing Martinez & DCL, plus the the risk of Pieters & Burke it potentially leaves me with 5. I guess a FH is the only option now?

      7. Too Mane Men
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I think many of us were hoping for Spurs to blank in GW18 for the sake of making the Free Hit more interesting/fun/differential.

        Sadly it’s as simple as this...

        Spurs double up, or even triple up, for a Free Hit BGW18?

      8. daitheboot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Any change in tactics following today's fixture ammendment?

      9. Rishi Sehgal
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 15 days ago

        If you can get 8 players to play using FT is it still viable to use your FH?

      10. Gav's Gunners
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        How many hits is too much?

        I'm leaning to WC now with BB19 in mind and include some single gameweekers (Tierney/Saka/Laca/Wilson) but would want them gone GW19 or i can FH this week and go into DGW19 with my original team, but no doubt would end up giving in to the temptation to take several amount of hits to BB19.

    4. Totalfootball

      Is Craig Dawson a good option from west ham ?

        Seems to have taken Balbuena's place and has been a decent fantasy asset over the years

      2. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years

        Tempted to get him for balbuena for gw19, those plans can easily change however!

      3. Too Mane Men
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Looks like he’s played his way into the first eleven.

        He’s always been brilliant in the air so ever chance he could roll back the years with a headed goal or two if he stays in the team.

    6. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Best moves here?

      A) Targett & Martinelli -> Stones & Smith-Rowe
      - gives me 10 starters for GW18 and 9 DGWers + Bellerin/Son for GW19 (no hits)

      B) Salah & Watkins -> Foden & Kane(c)
      - gives me a better 10 starters and captain for GW18 but no Salah and only 8 DGWers + Bellerin/Son/Kane for GW19 (no hits)

      Cancelo, Dier, Bellerin, Mitchell
      KDB, Bruno, Son
      Wilson

      Subs: McCarthy, Forster, Targett, Salah, Martinelli, Bamford, Watkins
      Bank: 0.0m, 2FTs

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        You already have a GW18 captain...

        Don't think Martinelli starts so get rid. I'd say A is best.

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          KDB/Bruno are great options, but a rested Kane at home to an unprepared FUL looks slightly better. No Salah for the DGW is the big sacrifice. Martinelli is likely injured also.

      2. ivantys
          1 month, 16 days ago

          You can't count Foden as part of the DGW

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            He's in the good books and the goals at the moment - think he'll start at least 1 and get minutes in both.

            1. ivantys
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Too many options right now, no way he's gonna play a lot. He's competing with so many for that 1 slot.

            2. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Foden won't play both DGW games.

          How are the latest Spurs vs Fulham FH drafts looking like? Might need to start stepping it up, only a day left.

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I think Dier/Son/Kane is a great triple (Regulion not worth the rotation risk for 0.6m more than Dier imo)

          And another. Sorry, thank you for the opinions: Not sure what to think about Digne vs WOL

          A) Digne + Foden

            A.

            I don't like double City defense. It's too safe and you can buy cheaper clean sheets. Digne might not be the best pick but the idea is right.

            1. Von Lipwig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              Not sure where else I'd spend the money tbh, hence Digne. Thanks

                Digne could be Saiss and upgrade the bench...

            2. Daniel - WC Active
              • 11 Years

          5. ivantys

              B, no brainer between Foden and Wilson.

                Yeah I prefer Foden by a lot haha.

                Wilson an injury doubt and Newcastle are bad. Foden has great form, is in favor, and is a powerful differential capable of double digits.

                  Wilson is injury doubt ?

                  I think Ivantys thinks the exact opposite to you. I love how divided everything is 🙂

                    I'm quite scared not owning Wilson vs Sheffield as he is capable of double digits as well. I like the Digne pick too he has the potential to haul big.

                  Looking for a under 4.8 def who is not Holding to navigate the BGW and the DGW

                  Was thinking Coleman, thoughts? Or is there anyone else?

                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    Everton don't have a DGW?

                    Lindelof and Shaw probably for me. Wait on Ole's presser which should be today to see who's fit.

                    1. S.Kuqi

                      This. Hopefully one of them is fit to play

                      Lindelof and Shaw may not play the DGW.

                      Liverpool game in the DGW is hardly a double.

                      (Solskjaer reveals Lindelof, Shaw and Pogba missed the FA Cup win over Watford due to injury. "I hope [to have] all of them for Liverpool. I’m not sure if they’ll make Burnley, but we have light training [Sunday] and we’ll see on Monday.” Bailly (neck) will also be checked. #MUFC)

                        I meant not play the BGW*

                          Wait for Ole's presser. Also, I wouldn't fear this Liverpool game that much. They are really out of rhythm. I can absolutely see this being a 0-0 or a cagey game.

                        i think solkjaer is doing ferguson tactics on this pal..ferguson used to always say he had injured players before games with liverpool and they would always play

                  On wildcard.

                  Thoughts about Areola as a bgw / dgw bb gk?

                  Not expecting cs but should get decent ammount of save points per game.

                    Fulham pretty solid now, problem is can't score.

                  Any news on McCarthy?

                  Forster best 4.0 2nd GK if on WC?

                  You know what'd be a real kick in the spuds for the DGW? Forster starting 1 and McCarthy starting the other.

                    Would be amazing if Forster played both

                      Then keeps 2 CSs and becomes first choice XD

                    If you have McCarthy then surely you should have Forster as well?

                      Exactly why it would be a kick in the spuds! You'd only get one game.

                  Looks like Spurs will play in GW18 regardless on if it Villa or Fulham
                  Plan to now keep the FH and do Robbo to Stones (-4) leaving me with 7 players.
                  Is this enough without having to use FH or take another hit?

                      Thanks, any thoughts on the proposal to bring in a Utd def for another hit?

                      Also LiveFPL site is brilliant, keep up the good work!

                        1 month, 16 days ago

                        I would be very tempted to take another hit yes. I am actually in a very similar situation to you and I think I will take both hits

                        1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left

                          1 month, 16 days ago

                          With only 5 players , looks like you will have to take 2-3 hits if you want to save the FH. What transfers do you have in mind?

                  2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    I could do Balbuena to Shaw or Lindelof to cover 18 and 19. This will leave enough funds to do Son to Salah in 19

                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    I'd probably look at Balbuena > United defender as well this week. He looks like he's out of the WHU team. Then yes, I would hold. 8 good players is what I'd want to save the FH.

                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      Cheer my original plan was to save the FH with 8 players including Martinez. Any preference between Shaw and Lindelof (can only afford those two to keep the option of Son to salah)? Shaw is a rotation risk but posting great stats and the other has a on/off back injury

                  Gonna have some midprice punt on FH. Which would u take?

                  A) Digne
                  B) Gundogan
                  C) Almiron
                  D) Telles

                    Digne

                    Not sure on Gundo with Jesus back now. I would suggest Digne but I didn't see the Everton game at the weekend.

                  guys, if I make two transfers now for next week in mind, can i play my FH for this week?

                    When you play your FH, your next squad reverts back to your previous squad. No transfers stick.

                    The freehit will bring back the team which was set last gw transfers won't matter

                    You can play the FH but in the following GW your team will revert back to the previous GW i.e. before the two transfers as the FH negates those transfers.

                    Your 2 transfers will be meaningless. The same team from last gw will return.

                  Don't have a freehit. Should spurs have a fixture should I move Raphinha for Gundogan to get the extra fixture or hold for the additional ft next week. Thanks.

                        I would get Gundogan since you do not have KDB as well. Would consider getting KDB if the one you are keeping on the bench is Salah!

                          Yeah looking to sell Kane depending on spurs fixtures and get Kdb in a week of so

                          Can't sell Salah he is too explosive and can. Turn any time

                  Kane captain if Fulham game is on?

                      if he plays the villa U12s then yes, if he plays Fulham, then maybe

                      Still prefer KDB or Bruno

                        KDB got just assist in the FA cup against a low league team in a 3:0. If Kane plays in a 3:0 win no chance he gets away with assist only

                      Fulham played a strong squad and the tie went to 120, while Son and Kane were rested...!

                      Nah, KDB still the best captain for GW18 imo. Fulham have tightened up the def and Brighton played 90mins plus ET.

                      Tbf not many players have really hauled against Fulham recently, suppose you could count Salah and De Bruyne but they both scored penalties so you might end up relying on Spurs to get one.

                    The more I look the more I like.

                    DDG
                    Cancelo Tierney Stones
                    Son Rash Bruno KDB Smithrowe
                    Laca Martial
                    (4.0, Brewster, Kilman, Mitchell)

                    Not too sure on double Newcastle and Cavani atm. Spurs postponement would make things a lot easier tbh. Any thoughts welcome and a little discussion

                        Burnley conceded just 3 in 6 games.

                        You have Martial, not Cavani?

                        I'd just avoid both tbh. I think it's a toss-up who starts because of the Liverpool game at the weekend.

                          True... Martial just rested in fa cup though. Will probs go Kane tbh if spurs looks like it’s going ahead

                      For this who hit the WC on gw16

                          yep, then Kane/son can get ez hauls

                            They will 5-0 the villa u23s

                              it wouldn't be the u18 team again - it would be the players in frst team that are negative

                            Prefer Spurs vs Fulham myself.

                            Same. If only to keep things interesting and not have to play the generic FH. Had planned no chip this week, would be much more fun if I can keep it that way.

                          Who would you pick for gw18?

                          B) Rashford

                            Ideally both but if not possible I would go A. The man is on fire right now.

                          If I have no City and 3 Villa players would you free hit or wildcard this week?

                          Down to only Bruno if Spurs don’t get a game.
