Playing the fixtures is a key thought process for FPL managers. Thinking about which teams have the best fixtures and how to target them can be key to success. To help FPL managers with their decisions we take a look at the teams with the best fixtures in Gameweek 31.
Fantasy Football Scout members have the opportunity to sort the Fixture Ticker by difficulty. This means that they are able to see how difficult the matches are over a range they have specified. Members are also able to sort the Fixture Ticker by defence and attack. You can sign up as a Fantasy Football Scout member here.
We have sorted the Fixture Ticker by difficulty and the four teams that sit top are Spurs, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Brentford.

Spurs sit top of the fixture ticker for Gameweek 31. They have a home match against a Bournemouth side who are fighting to avoid relegation.
The reverse of this fixture back in Gameweek 14 finished in a 2-3 away victory for Spurs. However the goals came from unusual sources with Ben Davies, Ryan Sessegnon and Rodrigo Bentancur on the score sheet.
Second on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 31 are Crystal Palace. Crystal Palace have an away fixture against bottom of the table Southampton.
Roy Hodgeson started his second spell managing Crystal Palace with a win against Leicester in Gameweek 29. Palace won the reverse of this fixture 1-0 back in Gameweek 14. Odsonne Edouard scored the winner with Tyrick Mitchell registering the assist.
Southampton sit third on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 31. They have a home fixture against Crystal Palace.
Southampton however sit bottom of the league and are really struggling for results so maybe sit higher on the Fixture Ticker than their current form suggests that they should.
James Ward-Prowse is on set piece duty for Southampton and therefore is likely the best investment if managers want to own a Southampton player.
Brentford are fourth on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 31. They travel away to Wolves on Saturday in a 3pm kick off.
Ivan Toney remains the third highest scoring player in FPL having returned 34 FPL points between Gameweek 26 and 29. However, Brentford other attacking assets such as Bryan Mbeumo and Pontus Jansson have all returned good FPL points in recent weeks. Likewise defensive options such as Ethan Pinnock and David Raya could be good options for FPL managers.
