Gameweek 16 Best Wildcard Team

We look at the Gameweek 16 best wildcard team. Using the Fantasy Football Scout season ticker we can see which teams have the best run of fixtures. This can then aid FPL managers in picking out some of the best assets for the run ahead.

The wildcard gives managers the opportunity to change their entire team for any reason. Managers activate their wildcards for several reasons. Whether that be to target fixture swings or just change their team up, the wildcard can be precious to your planning.

Fixture ticker

Below we can see that the fixtures ticker covers the next six Gameweeks (from Gameweek 16-21).

Who has the best fixtures?

Chelsea, Brighton, Wolves, Burnley and Manchester United rank in the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Newcastle, Everton and Sheffield United all rank at the bottom with the toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 16 Best Wildcard Team

Goalkeepers

Chelsea have some fantastic fixtures as we can see and their is nobody more nailed in the backline in terms of minutes than Robert Sanchez (£4.6m). Sanchez also saved a penalty in his most recent match which we could see more of. Backing up Sanchez is Martin Dubrakva (£4m) of Newcastle. Managers could also rotate Sanchez and Dubravka in and out of the starting 11 as they please. We can also see that when Dubravka has two rough fixtures above Sanchez has much easier matches.

Defenders

Newcastle have been maintaining some of the best defensive stats in the league so doubling up on the backline with Kieran Trippier (£7m) could be ideal. He sits joint first in the league for assists created so far which shows just how creative he can be. His creativity also means he often does well for bonus points.

The Chelsea fixtures are very good and so investing in one of their cheap defenders could be wise. One of the most nailed at the back in terms of minutes is Levi Colwill (£4.6m) who also scored in one of his recent matches.

Kostas Tsimikas (£4.9m) has proven very good value for money and was a cheap way into the Liverpool defence. Managers can rotate Tsimikas in and out of the squad as they please but he has also managed three assists in his last four matches so has multiple routes to points.

Tottenham may not be the most convincing side defensively but full-back Pedro Porro (£5.3m) is one of the best in his position recently for non-penalty expected goal involvement and attempts on goal. Porro has also secured an assist in three of his last four matches.

Manchester United are quietly going under the radar defensively. One of the cheapest routes into the backline is centre-back Harry Maguire (£4.3m) who also has significant threat from set pieces. Managers can rotate him in and out of the starting 11 as they please.

Midfielders

Chelsea’ fixtures are fantastic from an attacking point of view so going without a Chelsea asset doesn’t make sense. The Blues are scoring goals and rank amongst the best in the league for goals and expected goals in the last six. Because of that Cole Palmer (£5.4m) could be the standout. He takes penalties and scored in his most recent match.

Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) doesn’t need much justification. The Egyptian has been the most consistent asset in the game this season and his side top the charts for multiple attacking stats. Similar to Salah Arsenal’ Bukayo Saka (£8.9m) also both takes his sides penalties and has been one of the most reliable assets in the game this season.

Newcastle have great fixtures in the run ahead because they have already proven they can beat the tougher teams. Regardless of fixtures Anthony Gordon (£6.1m) is the standout option. Gordon has picked up four double-digit hauls this season which shows how explosive he can be.

Alejandro Garnacho comes in at a jaw-dropping £4.7m in the game. The winger has started his sides last five matches in the league and returned twice in his last three games. Garnacho could be a gift long-term so having him in now feels like it could be hugely rewarding.

Forward

Erling Haaland (£14m) is edging every other player for goals and most underlying attacking stats. The Norwegian is also a very good captaincy option looking ahead. Similar to Salah, Haaland is an essential for the run ahead.

Another player who some could start considering as essential is Ollie Watkins (£8.4m). His side look like they could challenge for the top four this season and their home form is incredible. Mixed with his output and the fact he’s maintaining some of the best underlying stats in the league amongst attackers recently means he is an easy addition.

Enabling the rest of the team is Sheffield United striker Cameron Archer (£4.6m).
