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!
Mini Double GW35
GW35 on Fantrax sees Double GWs for Brighton and Cardiff, as they face each other in their re-arranged fixture, as well as facing Wolves and Liverpool respectively.
Fantrax Alternative XI (Togga Scoring):
**60% ownership or below**
FWD: Dwight McNeil
Opponent: Chelsea (Away)
Ownership: 48% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 10.9 (since Mar 2) 🔥🔥🔥
Prospects: Burnley face a trip to Chelsea in GW35, but despite this, we’re backing their young winger McNeil; he scores well no matter what at the moment! We backed McNeil in GW34, and we’re back for more after his huge 21 point haul. The youngster has been very impressive the last few months, and he should be fairly productive during the run-in, despite harder fixtures.
GW35 Points Scored: 1
MID: Will Hughes
Opponent: Huddersfield (Away)
Ownership: 32% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 10.7 (since Mar 2) 🔥🔥🔥
Prospects: Youngster Hughes has been a bit hit or miss in Fantrax this season, but his points score of 22 in GW32 shows his potential, as he bagged a goal and an assist. This weekend Watford face a trip to Huddersfield, and we’re backing them to beat the already relegated outfit in convincing fashion. Hughes will be heavily involved in The Hornets attacking play, and will be keen to keep his place in the side ahead of the upcoming FA Cup Final.
GW35 Points Scored: 2.5
MID: Ryan Babel
Opponent: Bournemouth (Away)
Ownership: 44% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 12 (since Mar 2) 🔥🔥🔥
Prospects: Babel continues to perform well for Fulham, despite their awful form since he joined. The Dutch international bagged a goal and as assist during the GW34 victory against Everton, and will be looking for another good performance as Fulham face a trip to Bournemouth in GW35. Babel is surely playing for a move, and his average points score of 12 per game since March 2nd shows his Fantrax scoring ability!
GW35 Points Scored: 12.5
MID: Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Opponent: Bournemouth (Home)
Ownership: 59% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 9.7 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Loftus-Cheek has performed very well in recent weeks, and he finally looks to have Sarri on his side. The young Englishman offers so much more than Barkley or Kovacic, and his average points per game of 9.7 since March 2nd shows this. Hopefully Loftus-Cheek can keep his place in the side for the remainder of the season! Chelsea face Burnley at home this weekend, and a decent score should be had by RLC, as long as he starts the game! Hudson-Odoi (43% Fantrax) is a great alternative, but he will also be susceptible to rotation.
GW35 Points Scored: 3
MID: Victor Camarasa
Ownership: 56% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 9.4 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Camarasa had a disappointing GW34, as he managed just 1.5 points against Burnley. GW35 sees the Spaniard face both Brighton and Liverpool during his Mini Double GW. Camarasa has been one of Cardiff’s best players this season, and his average points per game of 9.4 since March 2nd shows his value on Fantrax. Camarasa is good value for GW35 – he should score well against a Brighton side who have just lost 5-0, and anything he gains from the Liverpool game will be a bonus!
GW35 Points Scored: 16
DEF: Laurent Koscielny
Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)
Ownership: 36% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 8.8 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Arsenal gained their first away clean sheet of the season in GW34, and we’re backing them for another cleanie this weekend, as they face Crystal Palace. Koscielny has now returned to the side after a recent injury, and his average points per game of 8.8 shows that he can perform well on Togga scoring. Crystal Palace look likely to start Benteke once again, as he is contracted to the club; unlike loan player Batshuayi. We think Koscielny and co. will have enough to stop Benteke.
GW35 Points Scored: -0.5
DEF: Fabian Schar
Opponent: Southampton (Home)
Ownership: 54% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 5 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Schar got back to business in GW34, as Newcastle gained an unlikely clean sheet away to Leicester, and Schar picked up a huge 19.25 points. This weekend The Toon are at home to Southampton, and the Swiss defender has a great chance of another big score. Snap him up if you can.
GW35 Points Scored: 8.5
DEF: Jan Bednarek
Opponent: Newcastle (Away)
Ownership: 10% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 6.7 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Bednarek has been an absolute beast in recent months, and he doesn’t usually need a clean sheet to bag a good score. He gained a double figure return during the 3-1 victory over Wolves last time around. Southampton face Newcastle away in GW35, and we’re not expecting a clean sheet, but we are expecting a good score for Bednarek. The Polish defender will be up against Rondon, and will therefore have plenty of chances for clearances and aerials.
GW35 Points Scored: 4.5
DEF: Joel Matip
Opponent: Cardiff (Away)
Ownership: 53% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 9 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Matip has started the last 12 Premier League games for Liverpool, and with the Reds facing Cardiff this weekend, picking Matip in our Alternative XI is a no brainer. Liverpool kept a cleanie against Chelsea, so they will surely grab another this weekend.
GW35 Points Scored: 14
DEF: Adam Smith
Opponent: Fulham (Home)
Ownership: 9% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 3 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Bournemouth ran riot in GW34, as they defeated Brighton 5-0 in front of their own fans. Full-back Adam Smith received a bumper double figure score of 14.5! This weekend The Cherries face already relegated Fulham at home, and we’re expecting another easy win. It’s always hard to trust the Bournemouth defence, but we think they are worth a punt this weekend!
GW35 Points Scored: 0
GK: Rui Patricio
Opponent: Brighton (Home)
Ownership: 55% (Fantrax)
Average Points Per Game: 2.1 (since Mar 2)
Prospects: Wolves face Brighton at home in GW35, and we’re expecting them to get back to winning ways after their defeat to Southampton. Its time for Wolves to re-focus now that they are not going to the FA Cup Final. Facing a Brighton side who have just lost 5-0 at home to Bournemouth is an ideal fixture; a clean sheet should be coming Patricio’s way.
GW35 Points Scored: 8
GW35 Team Points: 69.5
GW35 Team Average Score: 6.3 points per player
GW35 Average Ownership: 41%
