The best Leeds players for the end of the FPL season

Leeds have come through a series of difficult fixtures in the last few weeks but their fixtures take a significant swing for the better from Gameweek 36 onwards.

After an impressive win over Spurs on Saturday, their assets have become prime targets for the run in, especially as it coincides with a return to fitness of some key individuals.

We asked the Scout Network for their thoughts on the best Leeds picks for the last three Gameweek’s of the season.

FPL Nymfria

With so many mid-priced strikers available to us for the last three Gameweeks, Patrick Bamford (£6.3m) may go under the radar. However, a goal against Spurs may just have boosted his confidence, and his post-match interview suggested he was keen to get as many goals as he can before the season ends.

Raphinia (£5.4m) is also back from injury and chipping in with an assist during his 32-minute cameo, he could be a great budget pick given the last three fixtures for Leeds.

Since selling him on my Wildcard ahead of what on paper looked like a series of tough fixtures, Stuart Dallas (£5.2m) has registered three goals and a clean sheet. With fixtures against Burnley, Southampton and West Brom to end the season there is a good possibility of multiple clean sheets and attacking returns for the defender now playing every minute in midfield. He is returning to my team for Gameweek 36.

Jack Harrison (£5.4m) has really impressed me over the last few Gameweeks. He was fourth for chances created after the first nine games of Gameweek 35. Whilst Harrison hasn’t registered the attacking points that his performances have promised he was incredibly unlucky in Gameweek 35 and could be a great differential for the run-in.

Raphinha was welcome sight when he made his return from injury in Gameweek 35, providing an assist too. With six goals and eight assists this season, he offers Leeds something they don’t get from any of their other attacking midfielders. I think he could have a strong finish to the season now he’s back against teams with little to play for

With 10 clean sheets in 34 matches Illan Meslier (£4.7m) has had a great season. While Dallas is the standout defender option due to him being out of position, Meslier is great for save points averaging four saves per game, the second best in league. He is also joint-second, behind Emiliano Martinez (£5.4m), for bonus points among goalkeepers. So Meslier offers plenty of ways to pick up points besides Clean Sheets.

There is a urban legend that is very believed among French football fans, that because of the low rotation and the very physically demanding play, all Bielsa teams are more tired than the others come April and by May they finish absolutely burned out. With this in mind and with Leeds mid-table with little to fight for, I currently have no Leeds player in my team now.

However, the last four matches, including draws with Manchester United and Liverpool as well as a victory over Spurs, prove that I was wrong, and I will probably re-integrate one player in Gameweek 36.

Dallas, a £5.2m defender playing all of his minutes as a midfielder, cannot be a bad call. But Bamford is my main target. While he does not seem at his best fitness, he is always well positioned on the field, and with Kelechi Inehanacho (£6.3m) offering no fixture in Gameweek 36, he is a great third striker or even a second one for your teams.

        Yes put the second team out against Leicester, then the first team out against Pool in an attempt to all but end their CL hopes.

    On WC 0.7itb any improvements? I can swap Bruno to Mahrez and Bamford to DCL

    Pickford
    TAA - Digne - Dallas - Coufal
    Son - Salah - Raphina
    Antonio - Bamford - Kane

    (Forster - ESR - Mitchell - Bruno)

      I would not double up on EVE D with Pickford and Digne. Any other goalie?

    Looks like I’m going to have triple West Ham for the last 2. Hope they don’t fade out but instead push for 5th place

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Antonio, Cresswell and?

      1. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Already have Lingz. Next GW transfer in Coufal and Antonio (funds are tight).

  4. Joey Tribbiani
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Team of the season?

      Martinez
      Coufal - Stones - Dias - Shaw
      Bruno
      Kane - Bamford

      Cant decide on the last 3 spots. Could be DCL, Gundo, Dallas, Son, Salah, Foden, Soucek, Mount

      1. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Martinez
        Dallas, Dias, Shaw
        Bruno, Salah, Son, Raphina, Gundo
        Kane, Bamford

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          That works in terms of FPL but I'd have a Chelsea defender in there - Silva? Not sure who to drop though - perhaps Shaw but he deserves to be up there.

      Anyone with more insight like to share their thoughts on Bamford vs Antonio for the run-in?

      I think Hammers will push hard, and Antonio looks sharp in front of goal. Leeds not that much to play for, but should try and cap off a wonderful season...

      1. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        haha just seen this after posting mine below

        Antiono a better all round more consistent player. And West ham have somethign to play for. Bamford unpredictable. Although i see most people going with Bamf

    • Bamford or Antonio?
      Quan MisTaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Whats the reasoning behind Bamford over Antonio?

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Raphinha back, slightly better fixtures, less injury prone.

        1. Rassi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          And I am still undecided which one to choose.

        2. Quan MisTaka
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I think Brighton without Dunk is better than an in form Burnley. Agree with the injury proness though

          1. Rassi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Yeah, could be. Forgot about Dunk red.

      2. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Ha! I'm on Antonio too. But I'm not that clued up. I see many opting for Bamford rather

      3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Antonio's constant risk of getting injured is mine

      4. Quan MisTaka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        That Spurs result just so Leedsy. Been doing nothing for weeks then that. Really confused people i think

      5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Because he scored in the last game and Antonio did not. That is how it normally works. I am going with Antonio.

      6. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Could also be that many Lingaard owners don't want to double on WH attack.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I am doubling up. Have the perfect fixtures to double up in attack.

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            You are going to miss Wilson and Saint Maximin double up 😉

              isn;t wilson injured

      7. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Many already have Lingard and don't want to double up with Antonio.

      8. Aztec Kamara
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Bamford higher average score and less injury risk swings it in my opinion. I would be happy with either though and will probably go with both.

      9. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Less injury prone, I'd rather get Antonio for the final 2

      10. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Is there an argument to go with both

        I am looking at Bamford, DCL and Antonio front line, thoughts? too risky to go without kane?

      11. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Wood not being in the conversation is shocking, Leeds are quite poor defensively away from home & vulnerable to set pieces

        1. Bielsa Murderball
            1 month, 11 days ago

            I don't think home and away matters as such. They are unbeaten at home to the big 6 and so Burnley should be relatively easier to game to win and keep a clean sheet.

        Toying with Nacho >> Antonio, which downgrade would you make to fund it? Will be for a -4.

        A. Bruno >> Son
        B. Shaw >> Godfrey
        C. Rudiger >> Alioski

        Forster
        TAA. Ward

          If we think Bruno will only the Fulham game between 36-38 then I'd be tempted by A.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Was my thinking a little. Also gives me a much better chance this week over Godfrey or Alioski. Tough to lose Bruno though.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Is no one really looking at Wood over Antonio and Bamford?

        His form very nearly matches Nacho over a long long run now. Also if you check home away form Leeds defence is Jekyll and Hyde - away they have conceded as many goals as any team out there - it's the home defensive form you avoid.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          A bit boring for my liking. Burnley safe now performances might dip.
          He's a good option no doubt but I just feel Antonio & Bamford play for teams that will create more chances for them to score and have slightly better fixtures.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            People are confusing Burnley with Burnley 🙂

            Since GW27 they have had as many shots in the box as Leeds and only just behind WH. Wood is scoring goals because he's getting huge amounts of chances.

        2. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          He's always trolled me every time I've owned him so I'm steering clear.

        3. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Will be my preferred option out of those but I'm probably going for Wilson.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Looking at combination of both from 27 hopefully.

        4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Wood: Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield
          Antonio: Brighton, West Brom, Southampton

          I would say similar FD.

          Antonio can be more explosive. Plays in a better team. And the team is playing for much more.

          That tilts it towards Antonio for me.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            See the reasoning - but dubious about this "something to play for" malarkey.

            Really just surprised that people are apparently not even considering Wood and simply looking at the same two names.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              I agree. Should be a part of the discussion for sure.

      16. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Which players are you targeting for the last 2 GW's?

        I'll most likely be getting Greenwood and Wilson for GW37 and Bamford for the final week.

        Would've liked to take more of a punt in the final week but no-one really stands out.

        1. Boz
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Wilson GW37 and Wood GW38

          Aguero could be a punt for GW38 too as his swan song

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I like the target sheff utd plan and use the FT to chase the upside that fixture might offer

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I'd like a City attacker for GW38.

        3. BIG TONES
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Aguero captain on the last week. Mahrez could be a shout from next GW onwards - high risk, high reward though.

        4. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Wilson and Saint Maximin. Probably going to add Greenwood as well.

        5. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Antonio for 37 and City for 38

      17. BIG TONES
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        If I'm not going to captain Bruno for the rest of season, is there any point keeping?

          He'll be the most captained in GW37 though, who will you be capping then?

          He will most likely play only gw37. A clear sell for me.

          I've sold him for Son and will probably just get Greenwood in for Fulham.

          Plenty of good capt options in the last 2 gw's so shouldn't be an issue.

        Have had him for the past month and he's going nowhere...has registered points in every game other than Man Utd since he came into my team, and he was a bit unlucky there. Home to Leeds and last game at Sheff Utd could both be decent scores - could even nick something against Liverpool. And he is still low ownership, so you tend to jump up the ranks when he does well.

          Which is why I am correct to use FH in GW36.

          Got more players than most in GW35. But fewer players than most in GW36.

        Given the Spurs performance against Leeds is a Kane Son /Bale double up merited?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Take it as a punt, might end with 2pts or could be hauls. Double up is fine imo.

        1 month, 12 days ago

        What effect do people see crowds having in 37 and 38?

        One issue I see is that is rather negates the idea of only focussing on teams with something to play for - a slightly dubious concept anyway in my book as it presupposes pressure to perform is a good thing. Is it possible that crowds will incentivise all teams and players to put on a show perhaps and/or add to traditional home advantage.

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I think we could see some bonkers unpredictable results, like early season. Will be hard to predict not only with the fans but in terms of who has what to play for

        2. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Could have opposite impact on teams with toxic/unhappy crowd 😀

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            That could be in the equation I guess. Not sure I'd want United or Arsenal for a happy party atmosphere 🙂

        3. Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I reckon more goals for home teams, more attacking play egged on by fans, which in turn will mean more spaces for away teams to counter.

          Counter-attacking away sides and talismanic attackers for home sides will do well.

        Ok 2nd post after it was decided to go for WC this week, how's this draft looking? who am I missing?

        Forster / Mendy
        TAA / Digne / Coufal / Dallas / Stones
        Raphinha / Salah / Lingard / Bale / Jota
        Kane / DCL / Bamford

        Only concerns are not having any United, not having Antonio and having Stones...

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          If it were me I would downgrade Kane to Antonio and slot Bruno in for Jota. You have good cover for Stones so wouldn't worry about him too much.

          1. The Mantis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I'm scared to not have Kane when he's going for golden boot

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              With it being so close he might swear on his entire family including second and third cousins this time.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Seems an odd GK combo with some chance that both could miss out.

          Not a fan of the Leeds attacking double up personally and curious about how you bench. Is BB still in play?

          You can attack SHU in 36 but what about 37 and 38? I'd make room for either Wilson or Wood - both of whom have form.

          1. The Mantis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Yeah I'm not too keen on GK choice. I haven't had Mendy all season - I'll rethink that one

            Leeds fixtures have got me hooked though that's why I doubled on them. Maybe Bamford & Dallas will do

            You're probably right regarding Wilson & Wood as well

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Generally I just think the one big plus of WC this late is that you can get 11 this week which puts you way ahead go the game and also plan for 37/38 another plus.

              Leeds are an okay call of course but can't see anyone else being able to get Wilson for SHU and Fulham right now without using/wasting an FT. Going Wilson may not work out of course but it's the upside call imo of WC now. Go Bamford and you're simply matching those on FTs.

              1. The Mantis

                • 4 Years

                That makes a lot of sense regarding going Wilson, I had him at the beginning of the season and did well - thanks for this

        Thoughts on Bruno and Maguire to Mané and Dallas -4?

        Martinez
        Dallas Burn Trent
        Siggy Zaha Salah Mané Raphinha
        Bamford Kane

        Areola Azpi Kelechi Rudiger

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I'd want to keep Bruno, Maguire to Dallas looks good, maybe Rudiger to someone to get out 11 instead?

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Or maybe Nacho to Antonio.

          2. PP6
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Thing with Bruno I don’t think he starts Wolves - rather get Mané (or someone else) who will have 3 games where Bruno only has 1 most likely. Could get Mason for Zaha for the Fulham game.

            1. waldo666
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Can understand that, maybe I'm trying to convince myself he'll get more minutes than is realistic for the run in but I'm prepared to take the chance.

        ASM after this GW anyone?
        Seems to do well against the smaller teams

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Nice call

          My preference is Wilson - more direct goal threat. ASM has got returns this season but end product still not all it could be. Wilson is being wholly ignored for Bamford Antonio - presumably on basis of 36 fixture. He has amazing fixtures in 37/38 and as much if not better form as Antonio Bamford

          1. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Good shout. If you can spare the transfers, DCL then Wilson would be ideal I’d think

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

        3. Ruinenlust
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          ASM or Willock?

      31. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I have 10 players already for BGW36 including Dallas

        a) Fernandes/Greenwood > Raphinha
        b) Nacho (tough fixtures) > Bamford (easy fixtures, could realistically get 3rd in Golden Boot race)
        c) Both (-4) but that means 12 players and a benching headache so really a waste of a hit.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          b but also dont rule out Antonio

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          B for me

        3. waldo666
          • 10 Years

          b

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A

          Then move for Wilson in 37. Better fixtures than Bamford and Newcastle have attacking form nowadays and his personal form at least matches Bamford.

        1. Holmes

            Solskjaer has already said its too dangerous for anyone to play all 4 of the games in a week so I think we're in for a much changed lineup tonight.
