The best FPL goalkeepers for a Gameweek 28 Wildcard

With Double Gameweeks 28 and 29 on the horizon, many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers intend to use their second Wildcard chip over the coming days.

It’s a chance to aggressively attack the Double Gameweeks yet have the squad depth to survive Blank Gameweek 30, if a Free Hit can’t be used.

Below, we look at some of the better goalkeeper options for the final stretch of the season – relevant to both Wildcard activations and normal weekly free transfers.

All stats and graphics included in this piece are taken from our Premium Members Area.

Jose Sa

 1

The game’s joint-highest scoring stopper, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Jose Sa (£5.3m) has been a fantastic replacement for Rui Patricio. When Wolves went through a binary period whereby every score between Gameweeks 12 and 21 were either 1-0 or 0-0, their defence kept six clean sheets out of a possible eight.

However, just as FPL managers started to commit to their Molineux asset, this form slipped and only one clean sheet has been kept in the six matches since.

No team has conceded fewer than Wolves over the past 16 Gameweeks yet their expected goals conceded (xGC) tally is vastly higher, ranking in the worser half for both this and shots conceded. A huge reason for this overachievement has been the 56 saves from Sa, bringing in 14 save points and eight bonuses.

A promising Double Gameweek at home to both Crystal Palace and goal-shy Watford is a great way for Wolves’ back line to get back on track. Five of their next six fixtures have the best possible ‘Fixture Difficulty Rating’ score.

Aaron Ramsdale

Xhaka and Moura recalled as Ramsdale starts again

Arsenal’s number one is still popular and for good reason – the Gunners have established themselves as a strong, budget-friendly defensive side. Only Ederson (£6.1m) and Alisson (£6.0m) have kept more clean sheets than Aaron Ramsdale‘s (£5.1m) 11, with Arsenal never going more than two games without one since his Gameweek 4 debut.

Five were kept in the seven matches between Gameweeks 16 and 24 but a goal was conceded in their last two against Brentford and Wolves. Therefore, going by statistics, Arsenal are due another one at the weekend against Watford.

Beyond that, Ramsdale has a Double Gameweek 29 against Leicester City (h) and Liverpool (h), whilst they are currently one of only six teams to definitely have a Gameweek 30 outing, as both they and Aston Villa are already out of the FA Cup.

Remaining fixtures are steady, so Ramsdale offers both the safety of having Arsenal defensive coverage and the reliability of having the optimum situation over Gameweeks 29 and 30.

    Foster ¦ Fodder
    Rudiger Cash Coady
    Salah Son Havertz Willock Ramsey
    Kane Broja
    ¦ Lacazette White Amartey

    1. Shineonme
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      No Taa my hurt you in the long-run

      1. Slitherene
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Will get him in GW 31

    2. Paqueta Rice
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      One Liverpool? Back to the drawing board

      1. Slitherene
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Is TAA the obvious one missing?

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Son to Raphina or JWP and upgrade a defender to Trent (or Robbo is stretched for cash) and Fodder to a better keeper (Sa or Ramsdale)

      1. NorCal Villan
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Think I would downgrade Kane instead of Son

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Less options up front, plenty of midfield options. Son does save you a bit of cash and is not a bad pick but prefer Kane personally

    4. TopBinFC
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Keepers awful, need trent and or Cancelo, I'd go both, lose Havertz and Laca, both too expensive for what they do, Havertz is far from nailed

  3. Henryyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Who would you pick?

    A ASM (If fit)
    B Watkins

    Cheers

    1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Probably A if Jesse Marsch helps Leeds take fewer batterings.

    2. TopBinFC
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Tough one, probably ASM as he doubles 2 times

  4. Shineonme
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    WC team 0.2 itb anything I should change. Thanks
    Sa/
    Taa/ Rudiger/ Livr/
    Salah/ Raphinha/ Ramsay/ Son/
    Kane/ Jimenez/ Brojo/
    Dubravka/ white/ Martinelli/ Amartey

    1. TopBinFC
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Get Cancelo, end of. Decent otherwise

    2. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 14 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Apart from cancelo the only thing I would do is jimi > ASM.

      Can’t turn down a double double

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        You can if said double doublet is injury prone and not even certianly back from his latest injury....

    3. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Can you get Wilcock

  5. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Going round in circles on this one and would appreciate input:

    Ramsdale (De Gea)
    TAA/Robertson/Tierney/Cancelo (Reguilon)
    Raph/Salah/Saka (Bowen/Gray)
    Hwang/Jimi/Watkins
    1 ft, 2.1m itb

    A) De Gea -> Mendy
    B) Reg -> Saiss
    C) Gray -> JWP (or -4 or -8 with A and B)
    D) Wildcard

    Leaning towards A, and then B and C both in week 30...

    1. Shineonme
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      D

    2. banskt
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Solid team. I would roll the FT with this team, which would give 2FTs for shopping next week.
      If Chelsea plays and assuming FH in GW30, I would be tempted to do Reguilon > Rudiger and bench Hwang.

      1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Interesting thoughts, thanks

  6. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Would you:

    1) WC
    or
    2) CR7 Edouard Duffy to Kane Broja James -8 and BB

    Ramsdale/Foster
    TAA/Cancelo/VVD/Laporte/Duffy
    Salah/Saka/Bowen/Martineli/Ramsey
    CR7/Edouard/Dennis

    1. Shineonme
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Yes

  7. BlzE_94
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Ronaldo + Bowen to Kane + Willock?

    1. tommo1989
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Depends on the rest of your team and whether you plan to use a chip

    2. sulldaddy
      • 14 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Id probably do that.
      Im looking at bringing in either Willock or JWP and selling Foden or Bowen

      1. FPL_Crisis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        look at these exact moves myself

    3. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      good use of transfers for form and fixtures

    4. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Yes

  8. Tinmen
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Folks, is Doherty an option now or is Royal still first choice ?

    1. Paqueta Rice
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Would be hard to drop him after that last performance

    2. nolard
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      I am keeping an eye on him for now

  9. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Anyone use fpl.team how do you save changes? Anytime I log in to site any switches or transfers I made are not saved so back to square one. With Livefpl at least any changes you make remain saved

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      You need to have an account to use livefpl transfer planner which is the reason why you can save changes.

      fpl.team resets changes

        Ok thanks

  10. gomez123
    • 10 Years

    Lacazette to Wood this GW then switch back in 29?? Y/N

    1. Shineonme
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Nar

  11. southcoastbeast
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    On wildcard which 2 keepers would you choose for the rest of the season ?

    BB still to play.

    1. Shineonme
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Sa/ Dubravka/

    2. SAKA AND EMILE SMITH ROWE
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Foster is still a very solid option, then one of Ramsdale/Sa/Dubravka/Mendy

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Was on Sa and Dubravka but not sure on the latter - doubt I'd play him in 28 and 29 isn't great. Think Foster rotates well so may just stick with him

    4. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Sa & foster

    5. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      both foster and dubravka face city chel pool in remaining games.
      I think I would pay the 0.3 extra for dubravka if you still have BB left, if not just save the cash as you're likely to play other keep majority of games

      Note: Sa also has city chel pool to play. Ramsdale only has pool left

    6. southcoastbeast
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Thanks for the replys guys, it is a toss between sa/ ramsdale, ramsdales fixture look a liitle better thou. Sa having chelsea in gw 36 to, when i may bench boast. Dubravka has city to, foster maybe favourite then with palace away. Currently on Schmeichel as he has everton and lots of fixtures. Tough choices.

  12. BlzE_94
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    GTG?

    Foster*
    TAA Cancelo Robertson White
    Salah Son Willock* Ramsey*
    Kane Broja*

    de Gea Odegaard Maupay Williams

  13. tommo1989
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Pope, Mee & Weghorst to
    A) Dubravka, Konsa & Jimenez
    B) Dubravka, Rudiger & Hwang

    Planning to bench boost GW28
    Rudiger seems important but Konsa plays in GW30

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      B

  14. Tinmen
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Evening folks, how’s the WC?
    About to hit the button as I have exact money. BB in 29
    Tho takin out Cancelo is a big concern

    Forster Dubravka
    Trent Robbo James Rudiger
    Salah Raphinia Mount Willock Gordon
    Jimmy Kane Broja

    1. Tinmen
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      And Coady/Dier

    2. nolard
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      looks all right

      maybe not go double lfc full backs and get cancelo in there?
      also double chelsea could be tierney for one?
      i would go cheap 5th defender

      otherwise jimi is in a low scoring team but slim pickings

      1. TopBinFC
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        This, get Cancelo for sure

    Russian clubs getting banned. WTF
    Now a proposal to ban all Russian Athletes. Sheer stupidity. What next? Ban all the Russian Doctors, Engineers and teachers?

    1. diesel001
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Not really that stupid. Sports teams and the success they have is a form of 'soft' power. If a Russian club wins a sports tournament, then it can be used as propaganda of Russia's might.

      In addition, many Russian teams are backed by the state or those with strong connections to Putin.

      1. OverTinker
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        EU should fight if they so much want. But nah instead they are taking revenge from Athletes who have nothing to do with the war. Plus one can question why were American athletes never got the ban when they were on invading Iraq and so many other countries. Sports should be kept away from politics.

        1. artvandelay316
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Then the athletes should seek to compete independently and not represent Russia. I am sure there is a mechanism to allow for this, or a way it could be managed.

          1. OverTinker
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Thats impossible demand. Tell me why American athletes never got any ban?

            1. artvandelay316
              • 3 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Nothing is impossible. Sports governing bodies are changing and adapting rules, locations, events, etc already to navigate this situation.

              Not the same at all. If the US and UK declared war on a civilised, Democratic country and invaded, they would be met with the same universal condemnation that Russia has. Afghanistan and Iraq are not Ukraine.

              1. OverTinker
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                All are equal but some are more equal right 😀
                I can totally understand in case of Afghanistan but Iraq invasion was totally different based on lies.

                1. artvandelay316
                  • 3 Years
                  2 years, 3 months ago

                  Even with Iraq, there was never this level of universal condemnation in the way the world is decrying Russia's actions. This is next-level, with threats of nuclear and chemical warfare, and severe threats against any country that interferes militarily.

                  This doesn't justify the former military actions by the West, but they are different in their context and the global reaction.

                  1. OverTinker
                    • 5 Years
                    2 years, 3 months ago

                    Millions lost/injured/displaced in Iraq invasion but yeah the context was different. Even though no weapons of mass destruction found later.

                    1. artvandelay316
                      • 3 Years
                      2 years, 3 months ago

                      If you want to resort to numbers, come back to me with numbers once the appropriate amount of time has passed to draw a direct and fair comparison. Add on the fact that Russia are also deliberately targetting civilians, ambulances, etc.
                      All in a country that had no interest in war and posed no threat.

                      Also, the key here is the nuclear and chemical threat. You're conveniently ignoring that. This is a potential world-ender. A potentially extinction-level threat.

                      1. OverTinker
                        • 5 Years
                        2 years, 3 months ago

                        Whatever you say it doesn't imply that USA athletes should not have been banned if we apply your logic to ban Russia athletes now. It would be double standards.

              2. NorCal Villan
                • 2 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                Civilized?

                1. OverTinker
                  • 5 Years
                  2 years, 3 months ago

                  "Civilized" in the eyes of one block of the world.

                  1. NorCal Villan
                    • 2 Years
                    2 years, 3 months ago

                    Indeed. Ethnocentric POV if there ever was one

                    To be clear, I wasn’t questioning the meaning, just the usage to begin with

                    1. artvandelay316
                      • 3 Years
                      2 years, 3 months ago

                      A sad day when, while Ukraine is burning, buzzwords like "ethnocentric" are considered by some as more important than having the gumption to assert the superiority of democratic values.

            2. NorCal Villan
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Only a guess, but probably because sanctioning bodies feared U.S. “payback,” especially during the Bush/Cheney regime. Said sanctioning bodies are inherently spineless and almost certainly were biased against Iraq and Saddam Hussein to begin with.

              1. OverTinker
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 3 months ago

                This

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            If representing your country then strong case to ban for me, but individuals (like new word no 1 tennis player medvedev for example) - it’s a bit harsh for me if that happens.

            1. OverTinker
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 3 months ago

              Won't that be double standards then?

        Serious “sports washing” is at play all over the globe these days, Russian being a major beneficiary over past decade or so

    Better option of these?

    A) Cash, Son, Kane
    B) Rudiger, Willock, Kane (with enough cash spare for Ramsey to Jota upgrade in GW29)

      Being honest, awful, 3 Chelsea defenders, only Rudiger is nailed. And triple wolves defense who have been shaky in last few.

    Mount or Ziyech?

    1. TopBinFC
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Neither, both probably play one game, much better SGW options

        Despite the double have you seen the fixture run

        1. TopBinFC
          • 2 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Yeah great fixtures but not much good when they sitting on bench, just my opinion

    2. Gunners in Haaland
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Mount

      Mount. Ziyech has benefitting from the back four but likely with James back they'll go back to a back five which will see Ziyech dropped

    On WC

    Who is the best 16.5 2 DFs & MF combo for this team

    Dubravka Ramsdale

    Rudiger Robertson Walker-Peters xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx

    Salah Saka Ramsey Willcock xxxxxxx

    Kane Jimenez Dennis

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. ct mariner
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Kilman, White and Coutinho - all double in 28 or 29 and all have games in 30 (if important to you?)

      1. ct mariner
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        or Mount for MF and downgrade one of Def (e.g. to Schar) - Mount could blank in 30

    Is Saint Maxamin going to be fit for the weekend

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Possibly. The possibly not for the second game or the first in 29 but possibly back again for the second one in 29. Seriously who knows?

    Weak points of the new Leeds coach Jesse marsch:
    1. Struggle with teams sitting deep.
    2. Few tactical formation changes toward the opposition.
    3. Open play.
    4. Weak defensively.

    Strong points:
    1. A good relation and chemistry to the players.
    2. Highly motivativ.
    3. Has a very good attitude.
    4. Very good against the teams that play open.
    5. High pressing style.

    Not too much differences from Bielsa, could be a good appointment given the current situation of Leeds, not too much time left to change the philosophy of the game.

      Thanks for the analysis, that's really useful since I have to admit to not knowing that much about him. I used to enjoy watching his RBL team play on the few occasions I got the chance to see their matches and your comments regarding high pressing ring true.

      Cheers for this. Would this be a reason to swap Raphinha for someone like JWP/Willock or stick considering NOR in 29 and a game in 30?

  24. Ajax Hamsterdam

    For those on WC are you getting a Chelsea mid and if yes who? I can't decide whether to get mount or skip Chelsea attack and get maddison instead. Cheers

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Rudiger plus mount

    2. FPL_Crisis

      2 years, 3 months ago

      Might be too early for Leicester with the other doublers like Willock/JWP but can see the appeal.
      I wouldn't go Chelsea midfield personally, the don't score enough goals and next 4/5 games are all 3 days apart, you want players in these positions where you're not having to check predicted lineups each week

  25. Runks
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    What changes would you like to make at this WC-team? No BB left, and thinking FH30 so looking to maximize my starting 11.

    Ramsdale - Foster
    TAA - Cancelo - Rüdiger - Coady - 3.9
    Salah - Mount - Coutinho - Kulu - Ramsey
    Kane - Broja - Jimenez

    0.4m itb

    Madness going without Son, or should Kulu + Kane cover it long term?
    Waiting to push the button until the most likely Chelsea DWG is confirmed.

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Kulu ?

      1. Runks
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Kulusevski. He's been playing in the Spurs attacking trio since arriving in January.

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Oh yeh of course -looks quality

          1. Runks
            • 6 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Thanks for reply!

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      I think Kulusevski is at risk of not starting. Sounded like only a late knock to Moura meant he started Vs Leeds. Also who you benching from that front 8? Probably Kulusevski?

      1. Runks
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Yeah, thinking Kulusevski. Then doing Cou -> Saka next round, and bench Ramsey.

        Conte has spoken widely positive about Kulusevski since his arrival, and also opened up the oppurtonity to play him as wing-back. Obviously playing as a wing-back wouldn't be ideal, but at least it assures his minutes.

        Got Kulusevski in before the Leeds-game as a one-week punt before WC, but now I'm debating with my self if he's worth the shot..

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          I am now considering too over son!!

    3. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Kulu more punty but could pay off.
      I prefer Mount to Son and go with Willock/JWP
      Jimenez safe but not a huge scorer

  26. tbos83
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    If Chelsea get the dgw, feeling Chalobah might be worth a punt

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Risky

    2. TopBinFC
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Nope

    3. Hutchiniho
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      I've been thinking the same.

      I have a very limited budget.

      Options are Kilman, Chalobah, Roberts (Bur) or move back to Gallagher?

      1. TopBinFC
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        Kilman easy

  27. TopBinFC
    • 2 Years
    2 years, 3 months ago

    Does nobody remember when loads bought Havertz in GW9, some even made him captain, Chelsea scored 7 and he got 3 points. Seems nobody has learnt from that, biggest trap on this DGW, along with many Chelsea attacking options. Just my opinion so hold the we shall see replies

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Mount for me

      1. TopBinFC
        • 2 Years
        2 years, 3 months ago

        I'm not even convinced on him, will he start both games. Very stop start season so far for him

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          Which Chelsea are you thinking ? Just rudiger ?

          1. TopBinFC
            • 2 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Yeah, if I buy any itll be just Rudiger, probably WC in 31 and get James. Already have Coady and Ran at the back along with TAA and Cancelo so not keen on losing them for this GW

        2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 3 months ago

          I have to agree, with your main post and this. Not to say Mount definitely won't play or haul but Tuchel rotates so many players and Mount's finishing was quite poor yesterday. One thing I'd want from DGW players is being as sure as I can be that they'll play 2 games

          1. TopBinFC
            • 2 Years
            2 years, 3 months ago

            Yeah I'm the same, potentially many of Chelsea's assets will essentially have a single GW with rotation etc, definitely not worth a hit for any of them, some people thinking of ditching Cancelo for Rudiger or James which is madness

    2. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      shhhhh let others figure that out for themselves 🙂

      ironically the GW9 Havertzgate was also against NOR

  28. The FPL Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How many players for GW30 would you need not use FH? 8 enough?

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 years, 3 months ago

      Really depends on how many games there are and if by chance any of the big guns are playing. Will know by Wednesday night.

  29. dunas_dog

    If Chelsea double confirmed would you bring in Rudiger for Tierney for 3 games- double 28 (bur, nor) single 29 (NEW) and blank 30 or keep Tierney for 4 games - single 28 (wat) double 29 (LEI, LIV) and single 30 (avl)

    A Keep Tierney and stick with WC 26 strategy and get Chelsea after 30
    B Transfer to Rudiger

    1. dunas_dog

      * should add that playing BB week 28

      A

  30. The Mighty Hippo

    2 years, 3 months ago

    How does this wildcard team look (assuming that Chelsea will have a gw28 double)? I would also be looking to play a gw29 bench boost.

    Ramsdale | Dubravka
    TAA | Cancelo | Rudiger | Coady | Livramento
    Salah | Son | Mount | Saka | Willock
    Lacazette | Adams | Broja
