Draft Fantasy Power Rankings: GW34 to GW38

Navigating GW34 to GW38 is a make or break time for Draft Fantasy Managers as we come up to the season finale… therefore we bring to you the first Draft Fantasy installment of our  brand new Special Feature: Power Rankings!!  If your Draft League has Playoffs to crown your league champion, this is essential reading!

 

We’re going to highlight our Top 15 differential players for each particular GW (under 35% ownership), give them a score out of fifteen, and produce a combined Power Ranking table that spans across these five GWs.  Using these hints and tips, hopefully Draft Fantasy Managers can make the most of this important time for Premier League fixtures!!

 

If you’ve missed our End of Season Doubles and Blanks article, make sure you check this out immediately!  This article looks into Double GW34 and Double GW35 in lots of detail, and provides analysis into certain strategies, as well as key players to target.  Its aimed at Draft Fantasy and FPL Draft players, but there will be tips that are applicable to  Fantrax Managers too!

 

📚 Power Ranking Format 📚

As alluded to above, we’ll be producing a Top 15 list of differential players – under 35% ownership –  for each particular GW.  We will assign a points system to each GW, with the player ranked 1st gaining 15 points, the player ranked 2nd gaining 14 points, as so on.  At the end of the article this will then produce a table combining all of the scores, to provide us with the best targets for this period of fixtures.  Hopefully it works!!!

 

💥 GW34 💥

Brighton and Cardiff have a Double GW34, so we would recommend snapping up one or two of their players if you can – both have a Double GW35 too!  Obviously they are two of the worst sides in the league, but who can resist a bit of Double GW banter?!

After updating our Power Rankings for GW36 to GW38, its Babel that has risen massively up our rankings due to his, and Fulham’s, improved form!  The Dutchman is now ranked joint fourth, alongside fellow riser Redmond.  The Southampton man has taken over as our premium prospect, after JWP has seen his influence decline in recent weeks!

Deulofeu, Jota, and Calvert-Lewin remain highly regarded, after their continued good form.  All three of these Chaps should perform well over the next three GWs, as they have the form, as well as the fixtures.

Benteke, Wan-Bissaka, and Yoshida have also risen up our rankings.  Benteke is now Palace’s number one striker, after Batshuayi has been left to sit out the remainder of his loan spell.  The Eagles have a good fixture list for the final three games.  Due to this, Wan-Bissaka features predominantly as our Palace defender of choice, after Schlupp was ruled out for the remainder of the season.  Yoshida has also risen up the rankings after Valery missed out during Double GW35.

Bryan and Llorente are two of the other new additions to our Power Rankings.  Bryan is featured due to Fulham’s improved form, and Llorente will see more playing time due to the injury to Kane.
