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.

    Mount & vardy starting folks? Any news or thought?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Think they both start

    2. swanseag55
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Kane or KDB Captain?

  2. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Play:
    A) Elanga
    B) Richarlison

    One more to play for, probably more likely to start
    Other much better form and stats

    1. Aubamewho
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Sounds like it's A

      Richarlison rumoured to be out of the starting line up apparently.

  3. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Is Salah and Watkins to Kane and Dias worth a hit ? Will be captaining Son either way.

  4. Newms
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Would you transfer out KDB for Son if you had no other fires to put out. Still will go Kane as Captain.

    1. Die Hard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No

    2. Aubamewho
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I'd keep KDB

    3. Dreaming of glory
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Hell no. I'm edging between son & kdb for captain and there is nothing it in. City could pop off 5 at home to sign off in style.
      After a few sicknotes this week spurs would be happy with a 2-0 win today and easing through the game

  5. Railwayman
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Who to sell for a hit?

    A) Broja/Weghorst for Toney

    or

    B) Coutinho for Mount* /Diaz/someone else up to 9mil. (I own Foden already)

    I am only 6 points clear in my ML.

    *rival owns Mount,

  6. Kam_lfc
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A) Vardy and Diaz

      B) Kane and raphina

    • Erange
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Which option is best?

        A. KDB + Bowen
        B. KDB + Toney
        C. Kane + Bowen

        1. bso
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

      • Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        chances od starting for?

        A mount
        B james

        0FT 1.1m ITB

        Ramsdale
        TAA Robbo Cancelo Laporte
        Son (C) Saka Kulu
        Kane Nketiah Toney

        Foster - Raph Gordon Digne

        Anyone you'd swap out for Raph in the XI? Or GTG as is?

      • Tom
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Trying to close a 40 point gap. Would you prefer;

        A. Kane, Diaz (Mount Cap)
        B. Toney, Mane (Mane Cap)

        1. Azzy
          • 11 Years

        Madds or Bowen?

        1. Werner Bros
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I think I prefer Bowen purely on West Ham having more to play for

                Is this because you think Salah doesn't start? and who to?

            2. Dreaming of glory
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Salah to son or kdb

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Which one? I might lean towards KDB because of already having Kane and Kulu but also Son captain could be explosive
