We take a look through the best three under the radar picks for Gameweek 22. Using the help of the fixture ticker and underlying stats from Fantasy Football Scout we can find some of the best lesser picked players in FPL for the new round ahead.
Looking at the best three under the radar picks for Gameweek 22 in FPL could be really beneficial to managers. Picking lesser selected players in the game can help gain rank or an edge over mini-league rivals so it’s always important to consider them.
Chelsea have been struggling to convince for a while now but with some of their big January signings their recent offensive improvements could well continue. After a tough run or form things are getting better. Amongst all teams in the last six matches the Blues rank fourth for attempts in the box (59) and joint fourth for big chances total (16).
Fulham lay ahead for Chelsea who although having a great season offensively, do lack at the back. No team in the league has conceded more shots on target (113) or big chances total (64) than the newly promoted side, highlighting plenty of potential for the Chelsea attackers.
One of Chelsea’s new singings is Mykhailo Mudryk (£7m). The Ukrainian midfielder has proved a huge talent over the last several years. Not only did he look dangerous against Liverpool but he has also proved himself on the biggest domestic stage in football. It was his most recent Champions league campaign where he really shone, Mudryk hit three goals and two assists in six matches.
Nottingham Forest looked destined for the relegation zone for most of the season. However their recent push in form has seen sit 13th in the Premier League. Results have been better lately and they face Leeds in Gameweek 22.
In the last six matches amongst all teams Leeds rank the second worst for shots in the box (62) and the worst for big chances total (23). These stats further the appeal of Nottingham Forest’s Welsh wizard Brennan Johnson (£5.6m). The striker has been in good form, collecting three returns in his last three Premier League matches. Interestingly, he also ranks fourth amongst all strikers in the last six for expected goal involvement (3.51), mixing with some of the best forwards in the game.
Manchester United have a double Gameweek ahead so naturally the community will be flocking to some of their most popular picks. Crystal Palace and Leeds are scheduled for matches against the Reds this week and both have been conceding some really poor defensive stats recently.
Many fantasy managers tend to avoid central midfielders due to their lack of hunger going forward but Casemiro (£4.9m) has shown the opposite lately. The Brazilian could be heavily avoided for the rest of the season but with three assists and two goals in his last six matches, there could be some interest.
