FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 29
We take a look at some of the FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 29. 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 29 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 content creator and experienced FPL manager Ross is already looking at his transfers and plan for Gameweek 29. Double Gameweeks can be one of the most exciting periods in the game. They can also a great time to use a chip.
Like Ross, many will be looking to utilise their bench boost chip in Gameweek 29. Lots of managers used their wildcard in preparation for the round ahead. However, with a long international break coming up, could plans go up in tatters?
Fantasy Football Scout contributor and experienced FPL manager Seb highlighted key player returns during Gameweek 27. Brentford striker Ivan Toney (£7.9m) was one of the most captained players in the round but had plenty of competition from the Brighton midfielders.
Brighton have a double Gameweek against Brentford and Bournemouth in Gameweek 29. Whilst many are utilising their transfers elsewhere some could be pondering the in-form Brighton triple attack, where once again, the Brighton midfielders could become great captaincy options.
Fantasy Football Scout contributor and experienced FPL manager Andy made an interesting decision this week. Chelsea and Aston Villa both have a double in Gameweek 29 and many had to choose between either Chelsea’s Kai Havertz (£7.6m) or Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins (£7.5m).
Watkins has been in superb form, picking up a whopping seven returns in his last 10 league matches where-as Havertz has picked up just two in the same period. There could be a huge swing between both strikers this week so managers will be hoping to have made the right decision.
Fantasy Football Community contributor and experienced FPL manager HM emphasised the Newcastle performance with his tweet. Newcastle won their Gameweek 28 match against Nottingham Forest 2-1. The outstanding performance came from Newcastle striker Alexander Isak (£6.7m) who hit 13 points due to his two goals and bonus.
Another interesting take from the game is that Newcastle failed to keep a clean sheet for their sixth consecutive match. This could lead to managers questioning the inclusion of a double defence, even with a double Gameweek ahead.
Fantasy Football content creator and experienced FPL manager Andy picked up on numerous things this week. Lots of popular Gameweek 29 favourites picked up price rises recently. Those players include Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell (£6m), Brentford striker Ivan Toney (£7.9m), Arsenal midfielder Bukayo Saka (£8.6m) and Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins (£7.5m).
Manchester City striker Erling Haaland (£12m) also dropped in price. Many within the community were on the fence about whether to sell Haaland for his blank in Gameweek 28 but will those same managers be scrambling to bring him back in for Gameweek 29?
