The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 38: Tips, captains, team news and best players

So, it all comes down to this.

Gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is where overall ranks are etched onto your season history page and where mini-leagues are settled.

Hits will be taken, captaincy punts will be gambled on and the occasional chip will be deployed. Or perhaps you’re doing none of these things, sitting tight while all around you opt for the all-or-nothing approach.

Whatever your strategy or moves this week, we’ve got all of our content for the upcoming Gameweek on this page to help with your transfer dilemmas and chip-related conundrums.

Don’t forget that the later-than-usual FPL deadline is at Sunday 22nd May at 14:30 BST, although it might not be a bad idea to have your moves confirmed a little before this cut-off point given the likely spike in traffic that the site will experience.

            Chasing overall rank .... Definitely need to get rid of Richarlison ....

            A) Richarlison > Toney
            B) Richarlison > Vardy
            C) Richarlison > Toney; Zaha > Luis Diaz (-4)

            Son (c) - KdB (vc) - Mount - Saka - Zaha*
            Richarlison*

            Foster - White* - Gelhardt - Mateta

                A: Mane (c) Robertson
                B: Diaz Kane (c)

                Leicester full strength and Barnes 100% starting.

                A: Maddison
                B: Barnes

                1 month, 16 days ago

                Would you do Salah, Pukki, Schar > Son, Toney, Sessegnon -8?
                Secured 2nd position, so I don't mind taking hits to try catch 1st.

                  1) Maddison
                  2) Diaz
                  3) Bowen

                    Richarlison to Vardy and Zaha to Bruno Guimaraes worth a -8?
                    Alternatively, Richarlison to Toney or Nketiah for -4?
