Joe and Seb look at the key issues facing Fantasy Premier League managers ahead of Gameweek 37.
The remaining two Gameweeks are special as home fans return to grounds across the Premier League. But can their reappearance help their teams achieve run-in glory or prove a hindrance?
Armed with the Premium Members Area comparison tools, Joe and Seb look to find out how a crowd alters teams play to see if FPL managers can get an advantage at the tail-end of the campaign.
Could it be that players are keener to shoot from distance with the roar of the crowd to encourage them? Joe and Seb’s research looks at where home strikers shoot from and why Everton, in particularly, are in desparate need of the Goodison faithful.
A common theme over the latter part of the season has been the emergence of strong mid-priced midfielders. Jesse Lingard (£6.6m) and Diogo Jota (£6.9m) had been leading this charge but with form and injury denting their appeal respectively, the Scoutcast crew look at the new guard of value alternatives in the centre of the park. Leeds and Newcastle assets look particularly appealing.
Due to the tight turnaround of fixtures, there is no time for a captaincy video this week. Luckily, the Scoutcast can step in to assess the best candidates for Gameweek 37. The race for the Golden Boot, home advantage and defensive trends among relegated clubs look to be key to their decisions.
Elsewhere, there’s a bumper Rough with the Smooth edition this week thanks to Gameweek 36’s incredible turn of events, particularly among those who brought in the week’s unlikely goalscoring heroes.
Joe and Seb’s own contrasting fortunes in the last set of matches are looked at and the final brace of fixtures are examined in detail.
Seb takes his turn to pick a differential, and captaincy and transfer plans ahead of tonight’s deadline are revealed.
