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.

    With this news, does it still mean Villa will keep their DGW in 19?

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I would guess the everton game also at risk

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Maybe

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years

        Everton game is at risk surely

      "This news". Cheers Babs

      5 No.10s from the Chinese I'd say 😉

    2. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bad manager that can't adapt the system to the player he has.

  2. Camzy

    Assuming the Spurs game goes ahead (vs Villa or Ful doesn't matter because it'll either be Villa reserves or Fulham on little preparation)

    DDG
    Tierney Cancelo Telles
    KdB Fernandes Son Foden Saka
    Lacazette Kane
    (4.0 McGoldrick Coady Yedlin)

    This is how I'm thinking. It's COVID proof. I'm also not convinced I can improve that starting XI even with extra money. Foden is the key. I don't like any of the other City assets and it was going to be Sterling with concessions in defense and Kane until he decided to become an injury doubt (and I see them starting with him on the bench)

    I also oddly fancy Sheffield United to get a result. I think Newcastle having played extra minutes in the cup is the perfect game for them to take points. Derby got 4 points against Newcastle in their record low season. It just feels likely somehow to me hence why I'm gonna avoid Newcastle options.

    I want a maximum of 3 players in a game hence why I'm taking Yedlin over Mitchell as last fodder spot in case one of the games gets called off.

      Wow, one of the best teams I've seen on here!

        It's as template as they come ?

        1. John Nerdelbaum

          Don't see your mate in a lot of other FH teams 😉

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            No. I like points 😆

      "Kane until he decided to become an injury doubt". What did I miss?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Sterling is the 'injury doubt'. I was planning to have Sterling over Foden by downgrading in defense and losing Kane.

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Ah ok now I read it different, god you scared me! 😀

    3. scubasmithy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Its too Covid proof. Lots of money on that bench. I'd want to convert Foden to Rashford and Telles to Dias. but a good team

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I disagree personally on Foden + Telles being worse than Rashford + Dias. But that's just me. I guess I see the games going differently.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Will Foden start?
      Also Rashford hasn't blanked in an away game yet and Burnley usually get thrashed by the bigger teams.
      Double Arsenal attack and triple up on them is a bit risky imo. They are quite capable of losing or just scoring a goal in that game.
      Other than that it looks pretty good.

    5. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years

      Yeah I really like this team. Laca maybe my only doubt.

    6. Flair

    7. Twisted Saltergater

      Where’s Wilson?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I think Sheffield United are going to win 1-0 this week. He's also an injury doubt.

  3. 2OLEgend
      1 month, 19 days ago

      REPOST - no answers. I try for the third time - Anyone care to give me some advice??

      Hi guys.
      Do you think McCarthy and Vardy will be OK and play both games in DGW19?

      Also, witch combo do you perfer for DGW19 and mid-term;
      A) Stones, Mane, Watkins/Adams (-4)
      B) Zouma, Son, DCL (current team)

      I loose 0.7m value in Zouma and Son if I go with A

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yes to McCarthy, more tentative on Vardy - he should be okay but monitor Rodgers press conference closely.

        I like A better but it's close.

        1. 2OLEgend
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Cheers mate. My BB19 plans slowly falling apart with Martinez, McCarthy and Vardy all unsure

      2. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Anyone still using BB in GW19?

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yes. Have 15 DGWers and don't want to hold that value on the bench moving forward.

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Probably know by tomorrow.

        3. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Looking less likely as I have double Villa.

        4. abhirup780
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yup. Because I am WCarding in 18.

        5. Forza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yep, just need to deal with Balbuena. I got lucky by avoiding Villa.

        6. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          On the fence. I may have the capacity for it but these last minute postponements aren't helpful.

          Having McCarthy (COIVD), Taylor (injury), Alioski (Cooper back, at risk?) means theres a few at risk of missing games which would waste the chip.

      3. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Which of these would you remove to get Stones?

        A. Konsa
        B. Taylor
        C. Mitchell

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          B

        2. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A if Villa game is off
          Likely only plays Man City in the next two GWs

        3. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          A

      4. Inazuma X1

        No Ben Crellin amidst all this chaos!!!

        So how does FH work exactly? I haven't looked into the mechanics of it as I had not considered using it until now.

        If I make a transfer this week (say, remove Grealish as he now won't have a fixture or DGW) and also play my FH, will this mean Grealish will NOT be in my team come DGW19?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Exactly

          1. Captain_Shirokov
            • 2 Years

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            This is in incorrect. Grealish WILL be in your team in DGW19 as you would get your old team back and that transfer would be wiped out.

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              No it’s not.

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                If you make a transfer that transfer is lost when you play FT. Grealish will still be there in GW19.

                  Mate, I completely misread it. I read move for Grealish. Ignore my comment Shirokov!!

        Cancelo 6.5 or Jesus 6.5 on Fantasy Five?

              4 points for goal and 2 for playing 60 equals 8 points

                  As Cancelo is so consistent, nailed on as a City defender can be and is very attacking a due a monster haul. Jesus is so the opposite.

                DCL valued around the same as Watkins away to Spurs and Wilson Vs Sheff Utd. Seems like the bookies believe in Wolves' home form.

                Kane will probably increase then if they face Fulham (H).

              Non-FH team:
              Cancelo Stones Mitchell
              KDB Bruno Son Rashford Neto
              Kane Brewster

              Save or play the FH? The only risk is no Arsenal but thats probably worth taking.

                    Save it, you have a perfect non FH team. You have 5 premiums that everyone in FH will have, Neto can be a good differential, defence is double MCI, which is the template for this GW. I honestly can't see a better non FH team.

              Why would Fulham agree to play Spurs on Wednesday when they thought they had a free week and played a strong team vs QPR - a game that went to extra time?

              They then have Chelsea at the weekend.

              No way are they going to help Spurs out here.

                They probably don't want to but the fact is Spurs' fixture list is incredibly congested already... and Fulham have now been a cause for two postponements themselves. They are the ones who made it difficult.

                1. Twisted Saltergater

                  I’ll be incredibly surprised. Fulham are going to have plenty of blank midweeks between now and the end of the season. It’s a Spurs problem.

                  1. Hazz
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Maybe read a couple of comments down then. It's looking likely that this is what will happen.

                    From Spurs' perspective, and understandably so, it's not their problem because they've been forced to miss games they could have otherwise played & have wanted to get it over and done with.

                    It's the leagues problem because they need to give Spurs 2 rest days at minimum and there's barely any gap for that within the current calendar and if they can't do it now, they may need to extend the season. Not a good problem for them.

                In a way I hope they don't agree to it. It would set a bad precedent in my opinion. Forcing teams to move round fixtures with little notice. From an FPL point of view it would be chaos.

              Assuming Spurs v Fulham is given the green light, what is the better FH option here? Basically comes down to Wilson vs Laca, with the former allowing some upgrades in defence.

              Option A:
              De Gea
              Holding - Stones - Cancelo
              KDB - Son - Rash - Bruno - Saka
              Kane - Laca
              Subs: Peacock - Farrell; Mitchell; Davis; Dunne

              Option B:
              De Gea
              Tierney - Cancelo - Dias
              KDB - Son - Rash - Bruno - Saka
              Kane - Wilson
              Subs: Peacock - Farrell; Brewster; Mitchell; Burr

              Sorry if I'm repeating what's already been said but it's interesting that the Chelsea Fulham game looks to have been moved to the TV slot that Villa had against Everton. Villa's DGW looks in doubt tnow I would say.

                Oh my days. Would love to be a fly on the wall for some of these discussions.

                Fulham responsible for their Spurs fixture being postponed means they probably don’t have a leg to stand on.

                  How dare they catch Covid? Hardly their fault is it but I know what you mean. The Premier league just should have been clearer about their procedures from the off. They must have known they'd be postponements this season!

              @Simon Stone
              Premier League discussing if Fulham's postponed match with Spurs should be played this Wed if, as expected, Spurs game with Aston Villa is called off. No decision yet but as Jose said, Spurs have fixture issues. Need to play a game this midweek or next.

              Problem for Fulham is that Scott Parker had no clue this was a possibility until FA Cup tie with QPR was done. Their training ground only just opened after problems over Christmas + thought he was planning for free midweek. Selection would have been different had he known.

              Equally, Premier League need to resolve a logistical headache and clubs always knew issues were likely to arise this season that might lead to uncomfortable decisions being made.

                Ederson was on the bench in the cup so he's no longer isolating. You now just need to decide who you think Pep prefers for league games.

              Guess the GW18 Spurs outcome?
              a) no fixture
              b) Aston Villa
              c) Fulham
