Fantrax Chaps Choices – GW32

Our weekly Chaps Choices article is here to give you hints and tips to help you find your golden ticket to a big score using our Alternative XI.  We recommend a starting eleven of Premier League Draft Fantasy Football differential picks, who could score big in the upcoming gameweek!

For this article we use the ownership statistics as per Fantrax (using Togga scoring), with the rules being each player we highlight is required to have ownership of 60% or below, at the time of writing.  This way there’s a good chance some of these players will be free agents in your Draft Fantasy Football League.  Use these suggestions to give your team a little boost with a one week punt!

 

Following on from our inaugural Fantrax Power Rankings, where we ranked our Top 10 players for GW32 through to GW36, our picks here pretty much follow these initial rankings.  Many of the players that made our GW32 Chaps Choices, were indeed highlighted as players to target in our Power Rankings!

 

Fantrax Alternative XI (Togga Scoring):

**60% ownership or below**

Draft Fantasy Football GW32 Fantrax

🍷 FWD: Ashley Barnes 🍷

Team:  Burnley

Opponent:  Wolves (Home)

Ownership:  60% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  10.9 (since Feb 2) 🔥🔥🔥

Prospects:  Our boy Ashley Barnes is still sitting on our 60% ownership threshold, and he looks set for another good score this weekend as Bunrley host WolvesBarnes has scored extremely well in recent weeks, as he’s averaged over 10 points per game.  We’re backing The Clarets here, as we believe Wolves will rotate their side ahead of their massive FA Cup Semi Final next weekend.  Therefore, Barnes could really prosper against a weakened side.  We ranked Barnes second in our GW32 Fantrax Power Rankings, and he was also the third highest overall scorer for the period between GW32 and GW36!!  Wood (49% Fantrax) and McNeil (46% Fantrax) are great alternatives if Barnes is not a free agent in your Draft League.

GW32 Points Scored:  4.5

 

🍬 FWD: Dominic Calvert-Lewin 🍬

Team:  Everton

Opponent:  West Ham (Away)

Ownership:  35% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  8.6 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  Calvert-Lewin continues to perform well for Everton, after seemingly being given a real chance to lead the line until the end of the season.  Tosun and Richarlison haven’t worked out when they’ve played there, so why not give the youngster a go!!  Calvert-Lewin has scored two goals in his last four games, and scored pretty well in the games where he didn’t find the back of the net!  This is exactly what makes a great Togga scoring player!  The Toffee’s front man has averaged 8.6 points per game since February 2nd.  This weekend Everton face West Ham away, and we are expecting a few goals in this one; neither team have been very good at the back this season.  As an added bonus, Calvert-Lewin was ranked in the Top Ten for our GW32 to GW36 Fantrax Power Rankings; his prospects are looking good, so snap him up while you still can!

GW32 Points Scored:  10

 

🔵 MID: Anthony Knockaert ⚪️

Team:  Brighton

Opponent:  Southampton (Home)

Ownership:  57% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  13.3 (since Feb 2) 🔥🔥🔥

Prospects:  Knockaert has been in sensational form recently, as he’s gained three attacking returns in his last four games, and has averaged over 13 points per game since the start of February!  The Frenchman scored the winning goal against Crystal Palace in GW30, and will surely keep his place in the side ahead of a great fixture against Southampton this weekend.  The Seagulls have won two games in a row, and we’re expecting them to pick up another victory this weekend.  Knockaert came out on top during our recent Fantrax Power Rankings Special Feature, as his form and fixtures look good ahead of the next five GWs!  Team mate March (47% Fantrax) is a decent alternative here, if Knockaert has already been taken by a fellow manager.  March hasn’t been starting recently, but after turning around the FA Cup Quarter Final against Millwall, he could be rewarded with a starting slot in GW32.

GW32 Points Scored:  12

 

🦊 MID: Harvey Barnes 🦊

Team:  Leicester

Opponent:  Bournemouth (Home)

Ownership:  42% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  8.6 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  The young midfielder has gained two assists in his last five games, and has scored fairly well in the process.  Barnes has averaged 8.6 points per game since the start of February.  Leicester are an exciting prospect now that Rogers has taken over, and we expect Barnes to feature heavily between now and the end of the season.  We ranked him second overall in our GW32 to GW36 Fantrax Power Rankings!!!  Hopefully he can continue his good form, and Leicester certainly have a good run of fixtures to enable him to produce some decent scores.  This weekend The Foxes face Bournemouth at home, and goals are to be expected.  If Tielemans (65% Fantrax) is taken in your Draft League, then Barnes is a great alternative.

GW32 Points Scored:  5

 

🍷 MID: Ashley Westwood 🍷

Team:  Burnley

Opponent:  Wolves (Home)

Ownership:  51% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  8.8 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  Our steady scoring midfield pick this weekend is Westwood.  The central midfielder has performed very well in recent weeks, as he’s gained an average of 8.8 points per game since the start of February.  The Burnley man has two attacking returns in his last three games, and we’re predicting a good score once again as Burnley face a Wolves side who will have one eye on their upcoming FA Cup Semi Final.  We think Burnley will win this game, and expect Westwood to be involved in much of their creative play.  If you don’t fancy a slightly boring but consistent scorer for GW32, then why not take a punt on Manchester City youngster Zinchencko (32% Fantrax).  He’s started the last four games, albeit at left back, and has scored fairly well on Fantrax.  City face Fulham away this weekend.

GW32 Points Scored:  2.5

 

⚒ MID: Manuel Lanzini ⚒

Team:  West Ham

Opponent:  Everton (Home)

Ownership:  59% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  2.9 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  Lanzini put in his best Fantrax performance since returning from injury last time around, as he bagged 10 points during the 4-3 victory over Huddersfield.  The Argentinian’s ownership is still below our 60% threshold, so we’re backing him once again as West Ham host Everton in GW32!  Lanzini has a great chance of putting in another good score, as we’re predicting an entertaining game between two sides who have struggled at the back this season.  We ranked Lanzini 5th in our GW32 Fantrax Power Rankings; another big score is a good possibility this weekend!

GW32 Points Scored:  3.5

 

🔵 DEF: Lewis Dunk ⚪️

Team:  Brighton

Opponent:  Southampton (Home)

Ownership:  37% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  7.6 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  Brighton face Southampton at home this weekend in a huge game, and we’re backing them to make it three wins in a row, and gain a clean sheet in the process!  Dunk has been performing fairly well in recent weeks, and has averaged 7.6 points per game since February 2ndDunk is a good pick up ahead of the season finale, as Brighton have a Double GW35 and Double GW36 in Fantrax.  The Englishman ranked pretty well overall in our Power Rankings for the next five GWs.  If you don’t fancy getting on board the Brighton defence, perhaps look towards West Ham left back Cresswell (36% Fantrax).  The Englishman bagged an assist in GW31, and a massive score to go alongside it; we backed him in our GW31 Chaps Choices.  This weekend West Ham face Everton, and he could bring further attacking returns.

GW32 Points Scored:  3.75

 

👹 DEF: Victor Lindelof 👹

Team:  Manchester United

Opponent:  Watford (Home)

Ownership:  45% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  8.8 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  Lindelof has been terrific since fellow Scandinavian Solskjaer took over at Manchester United, and we are shocked to see his ownership still sitting below our 60% ownership threshold.  This weekend the Red Devils face Watford at home, and we’re expecting a clean sheet, and another good score from Lindelof.  Watford will have one eye on next weekend’s FA Cup Semi Final, so we’re expecting a weakened side to be fielded at Old Trafford.  Lindelof has averaged 8.8 points per game over the last couple of months, so he’s shown very good form, and he ranked highly in our GW32 to GW36 Fantrax Power Rankings.  Central defensive partner Smalling (49% Fantrax) is a decent alternative if Lindelof isn’t a free agent.  Smalling has been a regular in the side in recent weeks after returning from injury.

GW32 Points Scored:  0

 

🔫 DEF: Laurent Koscielny 🔫

Team:  Arsenal

Opponent:  Newcastle (Home)

Ownership:  43% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  8.3 (since Feb 2)

Prospects:  We’re backing Arsenal for a clean sheet with Leno, so we might as well get Koscielny in here too!!  The French defender has performed very well in recent weeks, averaging over 8 points per game over the last couple of months.  Koscielny has pitched in with attacking returns, as well as a couple of clean sheets, so he’s well worth a shot this weekend.  Arsenal face Newcastle at home, and we’re surprised to see his the Frenchman’s ownership at just 43%.  Sign him up if you can!  Koscielny was the joint highest ranked defender in our recent Fantrax Power Rankings article; his prospects look great for the next five GWs!

GW32 Points Scored:  0

 

🦅 DEF: Jeffrey Schlupp 🦅

Team:  Crystal Palace

Opponent:  Huddersfield (Home)

Ownership:  51% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  14.9 (since Feb 2) 🔥🔥🔥

Prospects:  Schlupp came out at our Number One Pick in our recent Fantrax Power Rankings article for GW32.  Therefore, he just had to make our GW32 Chaps Choices team!  The Ghanaian defender continues to play in midfield for Crystal Palace, and has gained an amazing 14.9 points per game on average since February 2nd.  This weekend The Eagles face bottom side Huddersfield in front of their own fans, and surely a clean sheet will be coming Schlupp’s way.  He also has a great chance of adding even more attacking returns against a poor Terriers defence.  If Schlupp has already been snapped up by a fellow manager, then look towards team mate Tomkins (56% Fantrax).  Crystal Palace also have the benefit of a Fantrax Double GW33.

GW32 Points Scored:  17.5

 

🔫 GK: Bernd Leno 🔫

Team:  Arsenal

Opponent:  Newcastle (Home)

Ownership:  57% (Fantrax)

Average Points Per Game:  10.1 (since Feb 2) 🔥🔥🔥

Prospects:  Leno has performed very well in recent weeks, and is actually the highest scoring keeper since the start of February!  Who would have thought that from the goalkeeper from an Arsenal side who have struggled in defence so much this season!?!  This weekend The Gunners face Newcastle at home, and this looks like a great chance to jump on board the Leno train.  The German has averaged over 10 points per game since February 2nd, and another good score could be incoming.

A decent alternative here is Ryan (39% Fantrax), as Brighton host Southampton in a massive game at the foot of the table.  Brighton have won two games in a row, and have a great chance of a clean sheet here.  Ryan has Double GWs 35 and 36 if you can afford to sign him now, and then bench him during the harder games between now and then.

GW32 Points Scored:  11

 

GW32 Team Points:  69.75

GW32 Team Average Score:  6.3 points per player

GW32 Average Ownership:  48%
