We take a look at some of the FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 27. With the new round approaching, we check out what some of the most elite managers have been talking about in the build up to the latest round of Fantasy Premier League.
Looking at what some of the FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 27 are talking about could be highly beneficial to other managers. Whether they discuss expected minutes, potential transfer targets, chip strategy or other key factors, it can all help to provide clarity within our own teams.
Fantasy Football Scout contributor Seb is already looking ahead to Gameweek 27. Four teams have a double Gameweek in the round ahead. Those teams are Brentford, Brighton, Crystal Palace and Southampton.
Seb looks to be seeing how the captaincy looks on Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m). Brighton dismantled West Ham in Gameweek 26 and the midfielder contributed a goal and assist to hit a 14-point haul. Some could even be looking to captain teammates Kaoru Mitoma (£5.4m) and Solly March (£5.1m).
Fantasy Football Scout contributor and content creator Flapjack highlighted something really important ahead of the new round. As the blank and double Gameweek’s roll in many will be deliberating the use of their bench boost chip.
Gameweek 27 could be a great time to use the bench boost after many activated their wildcard ahead of Gameweek 26. However, most could be looking to double Gameweek 29 where 12 teams face two fixtures.
Fantasy Football Community contributor and experienced FPL manager HM returns with another brilliant topic. Brentford face two of the worst defences in the league in their double Gameweek against Everton and Southampton.
Whilst many flock to Ivan Toney (£7.7m) some could select differential Bryan Mbeumo (£5.8m). The striker has picked up a solid three returns in his last six matches. Those returns include two double-digit hauls against Liverpool and Southampton, one of his upcoming opponent’s.
Fantasy Football Scout contributor Andy has emphasised the aftermath of the wildcard. A huge percentage of the community chose to activate their wildcard ahead of Gameweek 26 to navigate the blank and double Gameweek’s ahead.
Although all appeared well after the wildcard, managers will likely have to make some very tough calls in Gameweek 27. Those tough calls include which players to start in the round ahead and which players to place on the bench.
