Fantasy Premier League Planning for Gameweek 15 & 16

We take a look at Fantasy Premier League planning Gameweek 15 and 16. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area we can utilise its fixture ticker and underlying stats to pick out the best teams and players to target for the Gameweeks ahead.

Fantasy Premier League planning for Gameweek 15 and 16 can be absolutely vital to the success of any given managers season. The early stage of the campaign is one of the most important periods in FPL so being able to target the right teams and players could be key.

Gameweek 15 & 16 Fixtures

Best players for Gameweek 15 & 16

  • Liverpool – The Reds have been very promising from both a defensive and attacking sense. In fact not only have they been maintaining good defensive stats but they sit top for expected goals scored. In terms of defence those on a budget could pick Kostas Tsmikas (£4.7m). He bagged two assists and a clean sheet in one of his most recent matches. For those with more budget then you could go for Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.9m). Trent scored the equaliser against Manchester showing he has attacking threat. In attack the standout is obviously Mohamed Salah (£13m). The midfielder currently sits as the highest scoring player in the game due to his consistency. Another great option is Darwin Nunez (£7.6m). He has managed more attempts on goals than any other striker in the last six matches.
  • Arsenal – They have fixtures against Luton and Aston Villa. With that in mind and their recent form we should look to invest in their defensive and attacking assets. In defence the safest way into the backline in terms of minutes is centre-back William Saliba (£5.5m). Some could opt for goalkeeper David Raya (£4.9m) who has banked three clean sheets in his last six matches. In attack the best option is Bukayo Saka (£8.8m). Saka has returned at least once in 10 of his 12 matches played this season.
  • Manchester City – The league holders have meetings with Aston Villa and Luton. The rotation at the back and the fact they are shipping goals combines to make their backline an avoid. However, they still rank the best for goals in the last six matches. For that reason their attackers could be appealing. Striker Erling Haaland (£14m) is the standout. The Norwegian sustains better attacking data than any other player in the league and could be a great captaincy option moving forward. Another great option is midfielder Phil Foden (£7.5m). He has managed two returns in half of his last four matches. Foden also produced a goal and two assists in his most recent Champions League matche and has started nine of the last 10 league matches for his side.

Who else should we targeting?

  • Nottingham Forest – Nottingham Forest have some lovely games against Fulham and Wolves and their assets are also very nicely priced. At the back goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos (£4.5m) could solve some goalkeeping headaches moving forward. There are plenty of options in attack. One great option in midfield is Morgan Gibbs-White (£5.7m). He takes his sides penalties and recorded a huge 17 points in his last two matches. Finally, the injury to striker Taiwo Awoniyi has turned into an opportunity for Chris Wood (£4.9m) who could be a nice third forward option in our teams.
  • Newcastle – The Magpies have proven that even with lots of injuries they can still compete to a very high level. They face Everton and an out-of-form Tottenham ahead. In defence the cheapest and most reliable option (currently) is centre-back Jamal Lascelles (£4.1m) who scored in one of his most recent matches. For those with a bit more budget then the most reliable centre-back in terms of minutes is Fabian Schar (£5.2m). The standout defender is of course full-back Kieran Trippier (£7m). Trippier dominates distribution stats and assist potential amongst all defenders. In attack the standout is midfielder Anthony Gordon (£5.9m). He has banked 10 returns in his 13 matches this season which highlights his consistency. Another option could be Alexander Isak (£7.4m). The Swede leads the frontline, takes penalties and has scored in both of his recent matches in all competitions.
  • West Ham – They face an out-of-sorts Tottenham side and Fulham in the next two matches. Defensively the Hammers have struggled. However, offensively they have found the net at least twice in all of their last three matches. For that reason they have several great picks in attack. The standout attacking option is Jarrod Bowen (£7.6m). Bowen leads his teammates for non-penalty expected goal involvement this season and has bagged at least one return in eight of his matches so far. Another cheaper option is fellow midfielder Mohammed Kudus (£6.6m). The Ghanian has picked up two double-digit hauls in his last three games. For those with little budget then midfielder Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) could be a nice pick. Soucek returned in both of his last two matches.

Other assets with potential

  • Bryan Mbeumo (£7m) – He faces Brighton and Sheffield United next. Mbeumo ranks in the top three players this season so far for non-penalty expected goal involvement. The midfielder also takes his sides penalties which is a huge bonus.
  • Son Heun-Min (£9.6m) – Son may be short of returns recently but he still leads the Tottenham attack and takes his sides penalties.
  • Cole Palmer (£5.3m) – Manchester United and Everton could be great opportunities for the midfielder. Palmer ranks second best for expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks when compared to his offensive teammates. He also takes penalties giving him an additional edge.
  • Dominic Solanke (£6.5m) – Bournemouth may not be the most consistent side but they have been scoring plenty of goals recently. Because of that focal point and penalty taker Solanke has some great potential against Crystal Palace and Manchester United ahead.

Should we use a chip?

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 15 and 16 planning should also include the use of chips.

The most experienced managers usually use their Bench Boost, Triple Captain and Free Hit chip during medium or large blank and double Gameweeks. It could however be a fantastic time to use the Wildcard due to the major fixture swings ahead and rapidly increasing player price-tags of in-form players with good schedules.
