Watchlist

The Watchlist: Our pick of the FPL players for the rest of 2021/22

In our Watchlist series, we pick out the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players who are the best medium-term targets in each position based on fixtures, form and value.

Unlike the Scout Picks, we’re not just focusing on the upcoming Gameweek with these articles.

Seven-time top 10k finisher and Scout regular Zophar has been taking the reins for this series in 2021/22, producing a fortnightly piece and discussing the rankings by position, and he talks us through our latest update here.

ABOUT THE WATCHLIST

Our regularly updated Watchlist, which is visible on the sidebar, ranks players in each position for the month ahead – or, as is the case in the closing days of the season, the next three Gameweeks.

This allows site users to get a longer-term view on recommended players beyond the weekly Scout Picks.

Players are selected according to factors such as FPL’s form rating*, club injuries, club morale, forthcoming fixtures and whether or not the player in question is likely to be a bargain in FPL.

The table displays the player name and club, along with the abbreviation for the factors that played a part in their ranking. A key for these factors can be found below the player in the table and looks like this:

Arrows before the name indicate whether a player has significantly climbed or fallen in our reckoning since the previous update or if they are a new entry into the tables.

THE WATCHLIST: BEST FPL GOALKEEPERS

Kasper Schmeichel (£4.9m) retains the top spot and is one of three goalkeepers on the Watchlist with back-to-back doubles in Gameweeks 36 and 37. It’s a close call between him and Emiliano Martinez (£5.5m) but the fixtures on paper do favour the Foxes, with Villa playing Liverpool and Manchester City in two of their remaining five matches.

Ederson (£6.1m) looks the pick of the premium goalkeepers and offers a secure route into the City backline. Aaron Ramsdale (£5.1m) meanwhile drops down a few notches with the Gunners showing some defensive frailty and all their remaining opponents – Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Everton – capable of scoring. Edouard Mendy (£6.1m) would have been higher on this list usually but the Blues’ recent malaise sees him drop down to fifth. 

Vicente Guaita (£4.6m) is a great budget pick, especially if you are looking to Free Hit in Gameweek 37, and even if you’re not, the home games against Watford and Manchester United don’t look too bad on either side.

Alisson (£6.0m) also arguably deserves to be higher up the list but with so many good outfield alternatives from Liverpool, he comes in at seventh.

Nick Pope (£5.4m) drops out and is replaced by Jordan Pickford (£4.8m). The Everton shot-stopper was heroic against Chelsea, pulling off one of the saves of the season to deny Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.6m). With the Toffees looking to prioritise defence in their efforts to stave off relegation, he could be a great pick. 

THE WATCHLIST: BEST FPL DEFENDERS

No change at the top with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.4m), Joao Cancelo (£7.2m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) all showing over the past few weeks why they deserve to retain their spots. There is a case for placing Robertson above the other two given his recent FPL output but I do rank City’s defence higher than Liverpool’s and Alexander-Arnold’s rest is now out of the way.

Reece James (£6.4m) owners have endured a frustrating last few weeks, as Chelsea have failed to keep teams out and Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) has outdone him for attacking returns. I still believe James is the better option and I hope to see him at wing-back rather than at right centre-back over the remaining fixtures but there is rotation looming at Chelsea with the FA Cup final around the corner, which is why Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) moves above him.

Spurs were unfortunate to concede right at the end against Leicester City and Ben Davies (£4.5m) was on for bonus points despite being carded earlier in the game. At just £4.5m, he’s a great budget option with some attacking potential. 

Matthew Cash (£5.3m) got into the box plenty of times against Norwich City, while Villa have now kept back-to-back clean sheets. Despite the return of Lucas Digne (£5.0m) to the side, Cash looks to be offering more of a goal threat and I will back him over the fragile Frenchman. 

THE WATCHLIST: BEST FPL MIDFIELDERS

As with the defenders, there is not much room for debate for the top three spots with Mohamed Salah (£13.3m), Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) and Son Heung-min (£11.0m) the best premium options to own until the end of the season. Salah and De Bruyne both got their rests in Gameweek 35 and should feature in every game from now till the conclusion of the campaign. Son is in with a shout for the Golden Boot, meanwhile, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him take penalties over Harry Kane (£12.4m) in order to achieve that target. 

Chelsea’s poor form and rotation concerns see Mason Mount (£7.7m) drop down to seventh spot, while Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka (£6.7m) comes in fourth with returns in three consecutive Gameweeks. Penalty-taking duties add massively to his appeal and the Gunners look to be favourites for that fourth spot at the moment.

For those that can’t afford De Bruyne, Phil Foden (£7.8m) looks to be the best Man City midfield option. He racked up two assists against Leeds and once again showed his versatility playing in a no. 10 role behind Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m).

The introduction of Danny Ings (£7.7m) saw Villa change shape to two up front with Philippe Coutinho (£7.1m) playing behind as a no. 10 in a more central role. He looked far more threatening in this set-up and with back-to-back doubles, he looks like a good option despite the recent blanks.

Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) was benched against Southampton but Patrick Vieira mentioned that was in part due to the kicks he sustained in the previous game, and he showed his class by scoring the winner. Even though he does not have two fixtures in Gameweek 36, he plays a Championship-bound Watford, who he has a history of doing well against.

THE WATCHLIST: BEST FPL FORWARDS

In this last Watchlist article of the season, it is a pleasant change to actually have a decision to make regarding the forwards’ pecking order. Harry Kane (£12.4m) obviously retains the top spot but there were some tough decisions to be made below the Spurs man.

Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m) has put himself into consideration with his blistering form of late. He is a great differential pick, especially for those looking to come off the likes of Timo Werner (£8.7m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m).

Everton are showing signs of a fight over the last few games and with penalty duties in his locker, Richarlison (£7.5m) looks the budget forward to own with back-to-back doubles over the next two weeks. Make sure to keep an eye on any disciplinary proceedings surrounding his flare throw in Gameweek 35, however. Ollie Watkins (£7.5m) runs him close but the fixtures do look better for the Toffees on paper.

Eddie Nketiah (£5.5m) landed four shots on target against West Ham United and the fact that Lacazette has been afforded zero minutes despite being in the squad over the last two matches leads me to believe that Nketiah is now Arsenal’s first-choice striker. He’s a steal at just £5.5m.

Teemu Pukki (£6.1m) v Emmanuel Dennis (£5.9m) was a tough decision that could have gone either way but the Finn has failed to land a shot on target over the last couple of matches, which swayed me towards the Watford man.


That’s it for my final Watchlist article of the season. It’s been my pleasure writing these for you; enjoy the off-season and see you again next year.

    What would you lads do with the following lot, with only a FH left as chip — and two ft?

    Schmeichel
    TAA, Cancelo, Laporte, Alonso, Matip
    Salah, KDB, Son, Mount, KDH
    Nketiah, Pukki, 4.5

    A. Son to Saka, Pukki to Richarlison
    B. Dewsbury-Hall to Gordon, save other ft
    C. Mount to Saka, save other ft

    1. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Probably just B if there’s news that KDH will miss out this week. Wouldn’t sell Son unless it was to say KDB who you have. Whilst Saka and Mount I think can score evenly this GW

      1. sirmorbach

        Many thanks, sir!

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA

      Who you benching this week? Guess FH gw37? If you use FH gw37 you will be back to 1FT for gw38

      Up until this point I had thought KDH was a KDB typo. Who is he?

      1. redsallstars
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Bench matip KDH 4.5 this week and FH next week? You can do matip to tsimkas, KDH to saka if you have the funds. If not KDH to Kulu looks decent for gw38

      1. sirmorbach
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Sounds amazing really, many thanks!

  2. Rupert The Horse

    I’ve pretty much drowned with this team guys, but anyhoo; what would you do here? I have BB and FH left. 1 free transfer, 0.0 itb.

    Ramsdale
    White Coady Cancelo
    Salah Coutinho Saka Mount Kulu

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        BB 38 is a nightmare.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Don't teams tend to give starts to some youngsters etc? I could wrong ofc.

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              I’m so detached from the game I didn’t even think of that.

    3. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Definitely FH36 and BB37 imo

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Ok thanks. I’ll keep it simple then.

  3. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Team Prediction section still giving Jota to start over Diaz against Spurs. Very hard to know...!

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Funnily enough, I've literally just changed that based on last night! But yeah, I know nothing more than the average guesser.

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers Neale!

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Dias Mane Salah is the way to go till the end of the season, forget any rests…

  4. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Best max 5.1 def for BB DGW 36?

    A) Royal/Dier
    B) Digne/Mings
    C) Tavares/White

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Have Ramsdale

    2. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I like Mykolenko at that price point

    3. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      B for the fixtures I think. And then maybe Mings as I’m not sure Digne starts every game from here out whilst I presume Ming’s will

    4. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Cheers! Just see that Spurs has very nice fixtures in GW 37 and 38 too

  5. jernej93
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    1. Havertz/Mount to Saka
    2. Dennis/Pukki to Richarlison
    3. Both for - 4?

    1. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      for me - probably just Pukki to Richarlison?

  6. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Who would you downgrade between Robertson & TAA to fund Havertz > KDB? 1st in ML has both whilst 3rd only has Robertson

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Robertson

  7. sully29
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Laporte or Robertson for the rest of the season?

    Currently thinking that if Robertson gets rested against Villa then Laporte likely outscores him as I don't think Liverpool will keep a clean sheet against Spurs. But not sure how likely that rest is.

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Robbo

    2. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I would go Robbo unless you have a really good way of using those extra funds.

    3. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'd go Laporte as it saves funds. I see Spurs scoring and Robbo perhaps getting a rest between now & season end...

  8. OleBall
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    A. Matip & James
    B. White & Robertson
    C. White & Laporte

    Would you keep this team below or do a free hit for GW36

    Schmeichel

    Robertson James TAA (vc) Matip

    Mount Kulusevski Havertz Son (c) Maddison

    Kane

    Subs: Raya White Mateta Broja

    Any suggestions what I should do with the currant team.

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      FH

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'd probably save and do Kane + Mount > Richarlison + Salah/KDB and then FH next week.

  13. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    G2G? Does this need any changes?

    Schmeichel
    Laporte Matip Alonso Holgate

    3. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Geez, that midfield looms super! Not completely set on Holgate, but could go well...

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        looks* 🙂

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I can downgrade Gelhardt to a 4.5 and get Tavares instead of Holgate.

  14. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Mount or Maddison to Zaha -4 or wait till next week?

    1. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Wait

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

      Wait

    3. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I'm looking at getting Maddison in.

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’ll probably do mount/Maddison to Zaha/Kulu next week

  15. KeanosMagic
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Hi all, which of these would you do?

      Mount to saka
      Mount to zaha
      Mount and Jesus to Foden and Richarlison (have KDB and Cancelo)
      Hold

      1. Pegboy
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        A

      2. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Get Saka.

      3. redsallstars
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Saka if FH gw37. Zaha if no FH left

      4. Fintroy
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Defo not hold, mount will only play once and prob return only 2 points

    • Steve McCroskey
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I've never taken a -8 in my 12 years of fpl but considering it now.

      Would you do:

      Kane, Havertz, Broja, Kilman > Richarlison, KDB, Nketiah, Matip?

      1. redsallstars
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah those transfers look good

      2. BeWater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I would.

        1. Steve McCroskey
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          • 10 Years

          It's just not having Kane for last two Prem fixtures could be costly...

          1. Steve McCroskey
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            FH37 so just 38 to worry about

            1. Big_Andy_GAWA
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

        Don’t waste a -12 on Dennis

        Don’t like any of the moves but A if you must..

          Ok cheers issue is BB DGW36 & need salah but want to keep
          Kane

            -12 for a bench that probably doesn’t get much more than 12 is too many hits I reckon.

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Yeh my bench is still weak (foster, chabolah & amartey). I was just looking at getting salah in and replacing Chelsea players

    • JorisLa
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      For a -4?

      A) Pukki to Richarlison
      B) Pukki to Watkins
      C) Davies to Alonso
      D) None

      1. Jackie Moon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        C

        Pukki is a decent option this week I reckon.

      A or B below guys?

      A) Current team (2 FTs included):

      VVD Laporte Alonso
      Ramsey Son Foden Saka Salah
      Kane Richarlison
      Subs:Foster KWP Ait Nouri Broja

      OR

      B) FH to this team (Have 2 x FH's left):

      Schmeichel
      Robbo Laporte Cancelo Alonso
      Son Salah KDB Saka
      Iheanacho Richarlison
      Subs: McGovern Ramsey Greenwood Tsimikas

      1. Jackie Moon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’d FH if you’re got 2 for sure. Having KDB I think is huge this week.

        Not sure about Nacho though. I’d prefer Maddison with 5 in midfield if you’re going to go with Lei

        And I also think TAA over Robbo this week after having had his rest.

        1. Fit_to_drop

          Super feedback - thanks

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            No worries. Personally I’ve also gone Kane and Gordon over Son and Rich. Gordon’s price was just too good for the rest of my team, but I definitely see the appeal of your 2.

      Lots of podcast noise re Robertson being rested Saturday. He came off after 80 minutes and Liverpool played Tuesday night and don't play until Saturday. That is 3 full days rest. he is one of their "leaders". They are pushing for the PL and cannot afford any dropped points. Personally I cannot see it.

      1. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        They rested Salah and TAA. Arguably their most important two players. Robertson rest is not off the table

        1. Jerse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Good point re Salah & Trent. That said, they do have more top quality forward options as alternatives to Salah Whilst Trent has just got over hamstring tweak. I would not bet against Robertson being rested, but will be surprised given Timiskas is not remotely at his level.

      2. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        He was bang average last night - at fault with both their goals, as was TAA.

      3. Jackie Moon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        My guess is he get a rest against Villa before the FA Cup. They won’t want to risk it against a strong Spurs team surely. But that’s just a guess.

      4. The Mentaculus

        With good reason - see Klopp's quote after the Newcastle game. He clearly feels Robbo is due a rest too. But you dont necessarily have to panic-sell, 90mins of Robbo gets you plenty of points at the moment

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I personally think he gets it versus Villa.

    • TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Would it be absurd to sell Son (liv, ARS)
      for KDB(c)(NEW, wol)?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        No, I'm tempted

      2. Steve McCroskey
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        No, I think there's too much noise being made about Son for this DGW. Would want him for 37 and 38 though, that's the thing.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Would you do James, Mount and Son to Laporte, Saka and KDB (I also have Cancelo, Alonso and Kulu) ?

          1. Steve McCroskey
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Tough one, if you have a FH left to bring Son back in then yes I think I would. Also depends on how many minutes KDB plays tonight.

      3. Jackie Moon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’d hate to get rid of Son, but I do think KDB is a better option this week. Tough call.

      4. BHA_Seagull

        I've already done it , pre planned after WC last week.
        Praying he comes through un scathed tonight.

      BB36:
      1) Laporte + Dennis
      2) Fofana (or other 4.4) + Richarlison

    • Jackie Moon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      For a FH
      A) Luis Diaz and Laporte
      B) Foden and Matip

      And

      Are any Chelsea defenders actually going to play twice in the double? I’m thinking of getting Chalobah to save money to afford A above.

      Any better moves than these for a 36BB & 37FH? Cheers.

      A) Ait-N, Coutinho & Broja -> Laporte, Gordon & Dennis/Nketiah (-4)
      B) Ait-N, Coutinho & Kane -> Laporte, KDB & Nketiah (-4)

      Ramsdale, Foster
      Robbo, Cancelo, James, Alonso, Ait-N
      Salah, Mount, Coutinho, Kulu, Martinelli

      Son & Havertz to KDB & Maddison/Zaha worth a hit?

    • v3n0m

      Haverz -> Foden worth -4 for 36BB?

    • valderramasbarber

      Given his exploits off the bench last night, how do you rate Diaz's chances of starting both in GW36? Cheers

        Given the fact that he looks the better option for the Cup final the following weekend, I reckon he will start v Spurs, and be bench v Villa.
