Best Budget Players for Gameweek 38

Fantasy managers have a Double Gameweek this week and to help navigate it we take a look at the best budget players for Gameweek 38 in FPL with the help of underlying data and the fixture ticker from Fantasy Football Scout.

Checking out the best budget players for Gameweek 38 can be hugely rewarding for FPL managers. Not only can it help long-term but finding the right ones with huge potential can contribute towards making gains in terms of rank and mini-league position.


Things have been going well for the Blues recently. Four wins, three clean sheets and a huge 18 goals in their last six games shows just how much they have progressed since their recent slump.

Chelsea face Bournemouth this week at home, a venue they have been significantly stronger at as of late. The Cherries have impressed in a lot of areas this season, but they also sit amongst the worst five teams for total goals conceded this season.

Improvements in defence means someone like Dorde Petrovic (£4.7m) could be a great option. Other than the goalkeeper, Malo Gusto (£4.3m) could also have huge potential. Gusto returned from injury recently and played in a more advanced role for most of his Gameweek 37 feature.

An even cheaper route into the efficient Chelsea frontline is Noni Madueke (£5.3m). Starting all of his sides last seven matches Madueke continues to cement his place in the Chelsea attack. Two double digit hauls in his last four matches shows he has also been effective recently. Some may even consider Conor Gallagher (£5.4m) who picked up a return in three of his last four games.


Recent results haven’t been convincing for Tottenham but their a win against Burnley suggests they still have it in them to edge the promoted sides, even when they aren’t at their best.

Most of Tottenham’ appeal this week comes from the fact they face Sheffield United. The already relegated Blades are likely go into the final with little motivation. Maintaining one of the worst defensive and offensive lines in the league also paints a huge target on their back.

With the above in mind Micky van de Ven (£4.4m) remains the cheapest and most reliable route into the Tottenham backline. The Dutchman doesn’t just have clean sheet potential but his recent goal is another reminder of his attacking potential when needed.

The torrid Sheffield United defence makes the Tottenham attack unavoidable this week. Although Brennan Johnson (£5.8m) has arguably massively underachieved in terms of output, an assist in each of his last two matches is evidence he is progressing as an asset.

More Budget Picks

Fulham could be another good team to invest in this week. The Cottagers have been hit and miss recently but a meeting with Luton could mean finishing the season with a bang. Ranking as the worst team in the league for big chances conceded makes the Luton defence highly targetable this week.

Leading the Fulham frontline is Rodrigo Muniz (£4.3m). Although quiet recently Muniz racked up eight goals and one assist in an eight match period between February and March, showing how much potential he can have.

Another great budget striker pick could well be Jean Philippe Mateta (£5m). Crystal Palace face a ropey Aston Villa defence up next and with five wins in their last six the Eagles go into the match in top form. Mateta looks set to continue his purple patch of seven goals in his last seven matches this week.
