Fantasy Football Tips GW29 from our Fantasy Football Community ahead of the deadline.
With just four fixtures available, who should we be transferring in? It’s all covered in the Fantasy Football tips for Gameweek 29!
There’s an update from Ben Dinnery around Leeds United assets for the fantasy football tips gameweek 29. Fantasy favourite Patrick Bamford is expected to play in the Friday Night Football, having recovered from a knock to his hip. Some key personnel may be absent though.
Bielsa on Bamford: "We think that yes, he will play on Friday. He has a knock on his hip that is painful but we don't think it will make him miss the game." Liam Cooper is sick. Leif Davis has a "small" joint problem, and Rodrgio picked up a knock in training yesterday. #LUFC

Defenders are being targeted heavily for the blank, with some intriguing options having solid clean sheet potential and attacking threat. FPL Mihir compares the options, with Aaron Cresswell top of the tree. He’s the highest scoring defender in the game this season.

Brighton are another intriguing defence to invest in, especially since they have perhaps the easiest fixture of the Blank Gameweek 29. Lewis Dunk is the go-to option, but Veltman is an intriguing option to consider at a cheaper price, with Lamptey out for the season.
Brighton are 3rd for xG and 1st for xG conceded in home games this season while Newcastle are 20th for xG conceded and 19th for xG in away games this season. As big of a mismatch as there can be on paper – Brighton v Newcastle is clearly the fixture to target this week!#FPL

Fixtures is one element of consideration from FPL Corf in another comprehensive thread, with Brighton’s game against Newcastle United providing the most appeal on paper. There’s also a number of takeaways and differentials for managers to consider as we get to the business end of the season.

When it comes to attacking options, players who have a combined goal and assist threat are our top priority, and there’s a new name dominating the underlying statistics who is going under the radar right now. Fulham’s Ademola Lookman could be a good option for Friday.

LEE (H) in BGW29, anyone looking at Lookman?

Sticking with differentials, while Harry Kane is going to be one of the most dominant captains of the season, going against the grain could prove fruitful. Raphinha provides an intriguing option with huge potential upside, but Leeds Untied are on a barren spell when it comes to goalscoring.
Today I will be discussing why Raphinha is a perfect option for captaincy in BGW 29 and why you should consider him.
