FPL Irons highlights the superiority of Trent Alexander-Arnold over the last 11 gameweeks. He hasn’t blanked once, with his fair share of goals, assists, clean sheets and bonus points. It’s incredible to think his ownership is still under 50%.

FPL Advice has five nuggets of FPL Gameweek 28 tips. There are plenty of topics covered, including the captaincy debate and what to do with those players who don’t have a fixture this week. In some cases, it’s best to be conservative.
Tips for BGW28
1. Captain Salah/Mane, Vardy, Ings in that order
2. Sell Aubameyang if it's for Vardy, Or just bench him
3. Time to sell Grealish FC
4. NEW v BUR could be a 0-0, Start Burnley & Newcastle defender

Jack Grealish is one asset on the chopping blank, not helped by the blank this weekend. He’s been single-handedly carrying this Villa side for a number of weeks. FPL Swede considers the replacements in another popular Twitter thread.
Jack Grealish replacements (Thread) 💭
After 1 assist in the last 4 GWs and a blank GW coming up, Grealish is currently the 3rd most sold player ahead of GW28.

One side who have dipped in form over recent weeks is Watford, conceding three goals to Manchester United last weekend. Next up it’s Liverpool and another fixture to target where the captaincy is concerned. Bakar presents some interesting figures.
Nigel Pearson's honeymoon period at Watford is clearly coming to an end. Over the past five weeks, Watford have conceded ~11 shots in the box per game (vs ~8.50 under him previously) and ~2 big chances per game (vs ~1.33 under him previously). Salah/Mane/Firmino up next 👀 #FPL pic.twitter.com/xf7hAydakO

FPL King has put Diogo Jota firmly on the radar, following on from his six attacking returns in two games at the end of last week. He could be the next big differential in the game and crucially he doesn’t have a blank in the fixture schedule either.
🟠 No Blank GW28
🟠 3.4% Ownership
🟠 loves the back end of the season
🟠 5 Goals 1 Assist in 72 Hours
🟠 fantastic fixtures

While this is a Blank Gameweek, there’s an even bigger one coming next month. FPL Editor takes a look at the upcoming fixtures and deciphers whether we should be using our chips now or be holding them for tougher times.
GW31 is realistically only going to see these teams play:
BUR v WAT
WOL v BOU
NOR v EVE
LIV v CRY
(but this relies on Chelsea beating L'pool ??♂️)
If we discount Liverpool playing, I only have ONE player! Jimmy
Very unlikely I'll be able to navigate this without the Free Hit
