It’s been a long Fantasy Premier League Break, but there’s not much longer left to prepare. The community have the Gameweek 28 tips covered.
Aguero leads the form chart in the Gameweek 28 tips, but its West Ham striker, Chicharito, who steals all of the headlines for Daily Strikers. Many will be looking for inspiration elsewhere in Coach’s top 12, as that’s where the favourable fixtures lie.

Talking of fixtures, it’s time to look at the wider schedule, with expert Ben Crellin. Given the number of games which need to be postponed, it’s an important time to plan ahead and use those chips effectively.
If you FH in 31, you'll have to focus on teams who have a DGW in 34 but no Blank in 35 (Green group)
If you FH in 35, you'll have to focus on teams who have DGWs in 34 and 37 (Purple group)
If you FH in 34, you can pick as many players from the purple/green groups as you want: pic.twitter.com/k2GGwZzA3c

It’s blank gameweek 31 which is first on the agenda, where between four and five fixtures are going ahead. Let’s talk FPL discusses potential transfers to be made between now and then to field close to a full side for that weekend.
If I'm going to wildcard in GW32 then my plan is something like:
GW28 – Mahrez + Eriksen in
GW29 – VVD in for Jones (potentially)
GW30 – Save a transfer
GW31 – 12-16 point hit for ALL the blank players 😀 – Wilson, Walcott/Siggy, Shaqiri, defenders galore.

The chips will prove important to get through this tricky period, but how can we maximise their potential? El Statto shares his plan to maximise FPL points gained from all of the blank and double gameweeks.
My new plan, to maximise the benefit of WC and DGW:
Reason for change of plan in attached tweet:
📍GW31 (aim for 7/8 to play)
📍GW33 wildcard ready for DGWs
📍GW34 TC or BB in DGW
📍GW37 TC or BB in DGW#FPL pic.twitter.com/fT2SYvdTrM

An extended break is always a favourable time to play your wildcard. Many of the community have had theirs active over the break. FPL Enthusiast shares the latest draft for our Gameweek 28 tips. Liverpool and Leicester assets are well fancied for this period.
Updated #Wildcard Squad.
8 BGWs currently and will probably be left with 2 FTs come GW31 so could potentially end up with 10.
📍Pickford a BPS magnet and will remain my keeper until seasons end
📍Robertson over VVD of course
📍Salah/Mané over Salah/Firmino due to shit rank pic.twitter.com/KpgnBalp2B

As managers scramble to bring in more Liverpool coverage and Vahrez, squad make up has to be altered. A possible strategy considered by the community is offloading an in form Aguero to free up funds and a forward slot. Pundits put this week’s key question to a poll.
☎️ CALLING AGÜERO OWNERS ☎️
For those #FPL bosses out there who currently own Sergio Agüero we ask:
What’s the plan ahead of Gameweek 28?
— Fantasy Football Pundits (@FFPundits) February 21, 2018
It’s certainly felt that owning Kane, plus one of Vardy or Firmino is the way to go over the next few weeks. FPL Fly has half an eye on the Blank Gameweek with this Gameweek 28 tip for transfers.
And if you have both…
• Sell Aguero and start planning for #BGW31

Talking of differentials, the General has five of these to choose from for his latest Sportito blog involvement. Four of these also have a fixture in Blank Gameweek 31, so are well worth considering.

There was worrying news for Pope owners earlier in the week, when it was revealed that Heaton is back in training. It looks like Pope will be between the sticks for at least the next couple of weeks though, according to injury analyst Ben Dinnery.
Tom Heaton also played 90 minutes in a friendly game this week but Sean Dyche said the goalkeeper is still several games away from being considered for a return to the first team squad. #twitterclarets
