With less than 24 hours until the Fantasy Premier League deadline, check out all of the community Gameweek 30 tips.
There’s good news for Nick Pope owners, from injury data analyst, Ben Dinnery. Despite Heaton returning to full fitness, Nick Pope’s place in the squad is confirmed for our Gameweek 30 tips. He doesn’t have a fixture in the upcoming blank Gameweek 31 though. Check out Ben Dinnery’s timeline for the rest of this weeks injury news.
Tom Heaton has been pencilled in for a return after the international break. The goalkeeper has stepped up his recovery from a dislocated shoulder in recent weeks by playing in a couple of behind-closed-doors friendlies. #twitterclarets

In terms of defence and attack, the Fantasy Football Fix algorithm is a great source of predicted points returns. If you are looking for a new goalkeeper or defender for the blanks, one team stands out above all others. There’s also great statistical analysis in the battle of the premium midfielders.
Could Huddersfield be the answer to your defensive questions in the next 2 GW's?

There’s plenty of hot topics in the community ahead of the deadline, FPL Tips has set out to answer some of these in his Gameweek 30 tips video. As we look to the blanks and doubles, there’s advice to get you prepared and an answer to the all important question: What to do with Sterling?

The Sterling problem has certainly got the community talking this week. Plenty have voted in the crucial poll put forward by FPL Viper and it’s clear that one strategy is favoured over the other. There’s certainly potential for managers to be burnt in this one, with a favourable fixture away at Stoke.
Raheem Sterling: KEEP or SELL?
My thoughts on each side:
KEEP – 6.9 PPG & now down to 20% ownership, mini differential. Will invariably snare points in this mad City team.
SELL- Is he 100%? Minutes to be split more with Bernardo/Sane/Jesus? Poor Fixtures + BGW31.

Many managers are becoming frustrated with the lack of output for Theo Walcott and are wondering whether to stick or twist, despite the fixture in the blank. Plenty will be encouraged that he makes his way into Chief’s differential for the Yahoo Fantasy Gameweek 30 tips.
Here are @FPLHints' fantasy ⚽️picks for GW30.
Must-have pick 😍
Comeback pick 🔁
Differential pick 🤔

Talking of low ownership players, one differential striker has caught the eye of FPL Mad, ahead of Gameweek 30 and the looming blank. So much so, this player has been awarded the title of ‘Mad Pick’ for this week: find out exactly who this player is on Daily Strikers.

It’s all about the essentials for FPL General in his latest Sportito blog, with Harry Kane stealing the limelight. Don’t be fooled into forgetting the capabilities of Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero though, who are both hotly tipped for this week too. Check out who else makes up the General’s top 5.

We are getting towards the business end of the season and now is the time to climb the rankings with the blanks and doubles coming very soon. One man that many will be hoping to catch is David Isaac, currently ranked within the top 100. He guested on the FF Surgery pod this week, it’s well worth a listen.

There’s a brand new preview video from FPL Updates & Tips, with plenty of Gameweek 30 tips. A budget priced defender is tipped to keep back to back clean sheets and the tricky captain decision is also up for dicussion. Aguero has seen a slump in ownership so Kane is likely to be the most popular option.

Talking of captains, FPL Malaysia returns, with another interesting captain graphic ahead of Gameweek 30. There’s three premium forwards, plus two premium midfielders to choose from. Could this be the week to take a captaincy gamble on a low ownership player?
Untuk GW30, ini Captain kami!
-Aguero vs stk (11.9)
-Hazard vs CRY (10.6)
-Kane vs bou (12.9) (Pilihan Poll)
-Salah vs mun (10.6)
— FPL🇲🇾 (@FPL_MY) March 9, 2018
An interesting stat to consider when selecting a captain is prior performance. FPL Vs sets out the history, and Kane lands on top with a very strong record against Bournemouth. Vardy is well fancied in the community against relegation contenders West Brom, but he doesn’t have the best of records against them.

Hot or Not
There are some familiar names at the top of the hot list, in the Fantasy Football Pundits Gameweek 30 tips, including captain favourite Harry Kane. Arsenal assets are sliding down the rankings though after a bad run of form and Callum Wilson owners face a big conundrum ahead of the deadline.

Plenty of managers are looking to transfer in a player who has a fixture in Gameweek 31, but many of those teams face a tough match this time out. FPL Fly takes us through the options and concludes that there are two teams who warrant our investment this time out.

There’s no stopping Harry Kane taking all the headlines ahead of Gameweek 30, but will he hold this crown by Monday night? He’s part of The Editor’s top five players, but there’s also a Manchester City midfielder who requires serious consideration this week too. How many do you own?
📊 GW30 Top Five Key Players 📊
✅Will our Headliner be your captain?
✅ Premium MF (not Man. City)
✅ Mid-priced MF (Silva, Sané or Bilva?)
✅ Azpil or Alonso?
✅ Stand out budget FWD
..And 31 different players mentioned 👀😵

With plenty of players on yellow flags as injury doubts, and some returning from injury, it’s a challenging time to predict who starts. Plus expect rotation from Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea as key European games take place next midweek. Fantasy Football 247 make sense of it all in their blog.
Watford’s social media person is hiding… again. Poch is making excuses, Pellegrino says a lot & nothing at all and Conte wonders why Luis Enrique’s chair is already in place…https://t.co/Ll04Nmj6eW
