FPL Planning for Gameweek 11 and 12

We take a look at FPL planning for Gameweek 11 and 12. 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.

FPL planning for Gameweek 11 and 12 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 11 & 12 fixtures

Who has the best fixtures?

Brighton, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Aston Villa all rank at the top of the ticker with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Bournemouth, Chelsea, Luton, Burnley and Brentford all rank at the bottom of the ticker with the toughest fixtures.

Best players for Gameweek 11 & 12

  • Brighton – The Seagulls are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league as of yet so it may still be worth avoiding the backline. One player to keep an eye on would be centre-back Julio Igor who comes in at just £4.3m. He has started the last two matches for Brighton. Offensively they rank as one of the best teams in the league for goals scored. Because of that it could be worth backing the likes of midfielder Kaoru Mitoma (£6.5m). He appears to be their safest option in terms of minutes and he’s also picked up two double-digit hauls this season. Another budget pick could be midfielder Simon Adingra (£5m). Not only is he extremely cheap but he has also managed two returns in his last five games.
  • Liverpool – The Reds have some great fixtures ahead against Luton and Brentford. For those that don’t want to invest much in money in their defence then Kostas Tsimikas (£4.5m) could be a great option whilst he covers Andy Robertson due to injury. The attack should have priority with Mohamed Salah (£12.8m). The Egyptian could be an attractive captaincy option after returning four double-digit returns in his last five games. Another great pick could be striker Darwin Nunez (£7.4m). He has managed three returns in all three of his last features.
  • Aston Villa – The fixtures still look great for them as they have matches against Nottingham Forest and Fulham coming up. The standout defensive option remains to be full-back Matty Cash (£5.1m). He still ranks above every other defender for non-penalty expected goal involvement so has lots of routes to points. The standout pick in attack is without a doubt striker Ollie Watkins (£8.3m). Watkins has blanked just once since the start of the season. Some could opt for Moussa Diaby (£6.7m). He plays out of position up front and has collected four returns. For those who want to go even cheaper then fellow midfielder Douglas Luiz (£5.5m) could be a great selection. He takes his sides penalties and set pieces.

Who else should we be targeting?

  • Manchester United – As frustrating as they have been in FPL the Reds have some good fixtures coming up including against Fulham and Luton. The backline fails to convince but for those looking to invest little money in defence then centre-back Harry Maguire (£4.2m) could be a good budget option. In attack the safest player in terms of minutes is Bruno Fernandes (£8.3m). The midfielder has sustained some very good non-penalty expected goal involvement data this season and with the games ahead it could finally translate into FPL points.
  • Tottenham – They remain as one of the most in-form teams in the league. In defence the standout option is Pedro Porro (£5.2m) who ranks in the best two defenders for total attempts on goal. In attack Son Heung-min (£9.5m) leads the line with three double-digit hauls under his belt in the last six rounds. Another brilliant option is fellow midfielder James Maddison (£8.1m). Maddison ranks at the top with some of the best players in the game for non-penalty expected goal involvement. It also helps that he’s bagged at least one return in six of his nine games so far.

Other assets with potential

  • Erling Haaland (£14m) – Manchester City face Bournemouth and Chelsea next up and Haaland could be considered for the captaincy armband against the Cherries. The Norwegian takes his sides penalties and has already racked up nine goals and one assist.
  • Jarrod Bowen (£7.4m) – Is generally the most advanced player amongst the West Ham frontline during their games. So far in the nine matches Bowen has played in the league he’s banked a return in six of them.
  • Kieran Trippier (£7m) – He may face Bournemouth and Arsenal ahead but his side have managed six clean sheets in their last eight matches in all competitions. A lot of Trippier’ points also come via bonus and assists as well so either way he has multiple routes to points in any given game.
  • Bukayo Saka (£8.6m) – He faces Newcastle and Burnley up next. In terms of consistency, at the time of writing Saka has picked up a return in seven of his eight matches played this campaign. It also helps his appeal that he takes his sides penalties as well.

Should we use a chip?

FPL Planning for Gameweek 11 and 12 could 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.
