We go through the GAFFR top picks for Gameweek 35 using stats, form and fixture ahead. After a double Gameweek in Gameweek 34, we look ahead to the new round. Gameweek 35 starts on the 3rd of March. This means managers have a short time to get their teams ready.
Going through the GAFFR top picks for Gameweek 35 can be hugely beneficial. As fantasy managers, we are always looking for players who could do really well in the next round. For that reason, picking out some of the best assets for the Gameweek ahead can be crucial when chasing down the competition.
Bristol City have had a solid campaign so far. At the time of writing they sit 13th in the Championship and just nine points from the play-off places. They have a double Gameweek in the round ahead so naturally their assets will hold a lot of interest within the community.
In their last 10 matches in all competitions they have won six and drawn four, remaining unbeaten. In that same period they have netted 18 times, averaging 1.8 goals per game whilst also keeping just three clean sheets.
One of the teams they face this week is Cardiff. The Welsh side have been in a torrid run of form lately. Although two of their wins came in their last three matches, they still lost six and drew one in the same 10 match period. They also kept just two clean sheets and failed to score in four of their games.
The second team Bristol City face is Huddersfield. In their last 10 matches in all competitions they have lost six, drawn three and won one. In that same period they also failed to keep a single clean sheet whilst also failing to score in another four games.
For managers looking for defensive options they could back goalkeeper O’Leary (£4.6m). Others could choose to select left back Pring (£4.8m) who has picked up one goal and four assists already this season. Fair warning, there has been rotation between the attackers recently. Their most successful attacker and striker Wells (£7m) has bagged 11 goals and four matches already this season. He failed to start the last two matches but came onto score in both. Midfielder Scott (£5.7m) has started their last five games and has collected four assists this season.
Sheffield United also have a double Gameweek this week. The Blades have had a fantastic campaign so far. They currently sit second in the division, seven points clear of the pay-offs. In their last 10 matches they have won six, lost two and drawn two. In the same period they have also notched up 19 goals, averaging 1.9 goals per game whilst also keeping five clean sheets.
One of their double Gameweek opponent’s is Blackburn who are in reasonably good form. In their last 10 matches they have won four, drawn five and only lost once. In the same time they have kept four clean sheets and failed to score in two of them.
Sheffield United’s second opponent is Reading. In the same period they have three, lost five and drawn two. They also kept just one clean sheet and failed to score in four of those same 10 games.
For managers looking to back the Sheffield United defence they could go for Lowe (£5.2m) who has picked up 1 goal and four assists this season. Most could be drawn to Bogle (£6.3m) who returned his two goals and one assist in his last eight matches.
If looking to invest in the attack, the standout option and a real contender for captaincy could be midfielder Ndiaye (£8m). He has bagged 10 goals and seven assists already this campaign. Others could go for striker McBurnie (£7m). The Scotsman has scored 11 and created one assist this season.
It’s been a rocky season for West Brom to say the least. The Baggies are trying to find stability as they sit 10th in the league just five points short of the play-off places. In their last 10 matches they have won four, drawn two and lost four. In that period they have scored 17 goals, averaging 1.7 goals per game whilst keeping three clean sheets.
One half of their double Gameweek sees them clash with Hull. The Tigers have been mixed in their last 10 winning three, losing four and drawing three. In the same time they have kept four clean sheets and failed to score in a huge five of them.
West Brom’s second opponent is Wigan. They have lost four, drawn five and won just one of their last 10 matches. In that same period they have also kept three clean sheets and failed to score in three games.
If looking to back the West Brom defence we could select goalkeeper Griffiths (£5m). Some could back defender Townsend (£6.7m). He has picked up two goals and one assist this season. Whilst some could even go for Furlong (£6.1m) who has netted twice this campaign.
In attack there is a few options. One of them is midfielder Wallace (£10.7m). He has bagged five goals and created seven assists this season. Some will look to old favourite Swift (£9.7m). Around a million cheaper than his fellow midfielder Swift has collected three goals and six assists this season. Others could head straight to the focal point of the attack with striker Dike (£9.3m). Dike has netted five times this season, scoring a brace in his most recent match.
