FPL: @FPLReaction’ Top three Picks for Gameweek 31

The new round of Fantasy Premier League is edging closer so we invited regular contributor and fantasy football whizz @FPLReaction to reveal his top three picks for Gameweek 31. His picks are all players he thinks are going under the radar for the round ahead.

Seeing @FPLReaction’ top three picks for Gameweek 31 could be extremely enlightening. As we approach the deadline many within the community may be unsure when it comes to which players to buy. These three picks could help bring clarity around those decisions.

The Obvious Options

  • Dominic Solanke (£7.2m)
  • Cole Palmer (£5.9m)
  • Mohamed Salah (£13.3m)
  • Darwin Nunez (£7.5m)
  • Bukayo Saka (£9m)
  • Gabriel (£5.3m)
  • Erling Haaland (£14.3m)
  • Phil Foden (£8.1m)
  • Son Heung-Min (£10.1m)
  • Jarrod Bowen (£7.9m)

Luis Diaz

Liverpool appear to be mathematical favourites after the recent draw between Manchester City and Arsenal. Personally, I think they’re more than that and a lot of that comes from the sprit and motivation they have. It also helps that they have dominated a lot of the key attacking metrics this season.

Sheffield United are up next and it’s safe to say that it could well become a blood bath. The Blades have shown fight recently, their draw with Fulham being an example. However, they still conceded three goals in that game which is a stark reminder that they have the worst defence in the league, their overall data also reinforces that.

Whilst everyone flocks to Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez I think it’s fair to say that Luis Diaz (£7.5m) is well and truly going under the radar. I’m going to go straight into his numbers, because seven returns in his last 10 matches is some going. He is also catching the eye because as far as I’m concerned, even without the goal, he was the best player on the pitch against Brighton. With that in mind, Diaz eases his way into my top three picks for Gameweek 31.

Alexander Isak

I really feel sorry for Newcastle, the sheer amount of injuries they are picking up is unheard of. But, one thing I will say is how good they are offensively, especially as of late. In fact, when it comes to goals they have managed between 2-4 in nine of their last 10 matches.

Newcastle playing at home this week gives me even more confidence in their attacking players. Everton away is the fixture and the Toffees have really struggled for results recently, failing to win any of their last 12 games. They have also shipped 2-3 goals in five of their last seven league matches, highlighting them as a team to target.

Spearheading the effective Newcastle attack is Alexander Isak (£7.7m) who makes it amongst my top three picks for the second consecutive time. I mean, it helps that after I suggested him last week he went onto bag a 15-pointer for his two goals and assist. But, I also like the fact that he didn’t actually play that well in his latest match and still came a way with a massive haul.

Pascal Gross

Brighton assets are far from a lot of peoples thoughts apart from my own. Since prior to building my wildcard in Gameweek 30, I have thought about where I can fit in a Brighton attacker, the issue is is that every other game they have until Gameweek 35 is either a Arsenal or a Manchester City. After that however they have Bournemouth, Aston Villa and a likely double Gameweek.

As awkward as having a Brighton attacker is for the next several Gameweeks, I think the game against Nottingham Forest this week is a great one. Similar to Everton mentioned above, Forest are a side struggling and if they’re not careful, they could end up in a relegation scrap.

One player who I really like and one I will look to bring in potentially closer to Gameweek 35 is Pascal Gross (£6.4m). Gross has gone extremely under the radar again this season. He has blanked just twice in his last seven league matches with both blanks coming away from home. The fact he has earned more bonus points than any other player in the game this season also suggests he has a good chance of hauling if he returns.

We built two of the best wildcard drafts for Gameweek 31 right here.
