Fantasy Football Tips GW27 from our Fantasy Football Community ahead of the deadline.
Should we be targeting Manchester City and Southampton’s Double Gameweek fixtures? It’s all covered in the Fantasy Football tips for Gameweek 27!
Harvey Barnes is the most transferred out player for the fantasy football tips gameweek 27. The unofficial prognosis isn’t too promising for his knee injury, with him likely to miss the majority of the rest of the season given the surgery required.
💬 Rodgers: “I think Jamie Vardy is okay. He felt his calf go making a pass but it was fine for the rest of the game. It looks like Harvey Barnes is going to need an op on his knee. I just spoke to the doctor; he might be out for six weeks. That’ll be a huge blow for us.” #LCFC

Defensive changes could be needed, and one man going under the radar is Antonio Rudiger. Chelsea have been in tremendous defensive form since Thomas Tuchel took over at Stamford Bridge, with consistency to rival Manchester City.
Since Tuchel has taken over, Chelsea are best in the league for:
-Shots in the box conceded ✅
-Big chances conceded ✅
-xG conceded ✅
-Shots on target conceded✅
-Goals conceded ✅
-Clean sheets ✅
Rudiger at £4.6m is an absolute steal#FPL
