The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 18: Tips, captains, team news and best players

The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 18: Tips, captains, team news and best players

The rise in coronavirus cases up and down the country has resulted in the biggest Blank Gameweek of the season so far, with only four Premier League fixtures taking place this weekend.

The surviving matches are:

  • Leeds United v Arsenal
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Chelsea
  • Newcastle United v Manchester City
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool

There’s naturally plenty of coronavirus-related content in this week’s Gameweek guide, with our regularly updated ‘Covid watch’ article the place to go for a club-by-club rundown.

On top of our usual articles like the Scout Picks, Team News and Spot the Differential, we’ve been asking the Fantasy Football Scout community on their thoughts on how to approach Blank Gameweek 18 and, for those considering playing the chip, we’ve cobbled together some Free Hit drafts from the Scout staff.

This page will be refreshed between now and the FPL deadline so keep checking back for the latest content between now and Saturday’s 16:00 GMT deadline – and for fresh updates on whether we’ll get any more Covid-enforced postponements.

*Note that the bulk of the below content was produced before Aston Villa v Burnley was called off on Saturday afternoon
