The 24/25 Premier League Fixtures are OUT NOW!

Gameweek 22 Best Wildcard Team

Last modified date

We look at the Gameweek 22 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 22-27).

Who has the best fixtures?

Manchester City have a double Gameweek in Gameweek 25 which has helped them sit atop the fixture ticker.

Joining Manchester City in the top five teams with the easiest fixtures are Aston Villa, Brighton, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Burnley, Chelsea, Luton, Bournemouth, and Nottingham Forest all rank in the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 22 Best Wildcard Team

Note: Players like Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-Min have departed to play tournaments with their national side. For a full list of players leaving for AFCON and the Asian Cup, check out this link here.

Goalkeepers

The lack of convincing options between the sticks remains a concern so going as cheap as possible could be a wise move. With that in mind we could look to West Ham’ Alphonse Areola (£4.2m) and Newcastle’ Martin Dubravka (£4.2m). Both goalkeepers have a good schedule to rotate around the other.

Defenders

The Manchester City double means tripling up on their assets could be a good play. In defence one of their most reliable assets in terms of starts and minutes is Kyle Walker (£5.4m) who has managed two back-to-back six-point returns.

Pedro Porro (£5.8m) remains one of the top performing players in the game recently. The Tottenham full-back has managed to return in an impressive seven of his last 10 matches. Not only does he take corners but he also dominates several key attacking metrics amongst defenders in the last six Gameweeks.

Brighton have a fantastic run of fixtures ahead. Although they have struggled to keep clean sheets this season their underlying defensive metrics range from mid-table to very good. Offering much more than clean sheet potential is the explosive Pervis Estupinan (£5m) who has racked up five attacking returns in just eight league games.

Arsenal remain one of the best defences in the league statistically. One of the cheapest and most reliable ways into the backline is of course Gabriel (£5m). The Brazilian also edges his more expensive teammate William Saliba for non-penalty expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks.

Aston Villa sit second on the fixture ticker for the period ahead which suggests investment could be wise. They have also kept two back-to-back clean sheets in all competitions which could be a good sign. The cheapest way into the backline is Ezri Konsa (£4.6m).

Midfielders

Manchester City remain the top scorers in the division and the return of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m) is likely to extend that. Upon his return the Belgian bagged a goal and an assist to help beat Newcastle who were winning before he came on from the bench. De Bruyne could also be a place holder for Mohamed Salah when he returns from AFCON.

Pascal Gross (£6.5m) could be a great pick for the fixtures ahead. Not only does his side rank in the top six teams for most attacking metrics but he also sits top for FPL points and minutes played within his side. Gross also ranks in the top four players for non-penalty expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks.

Tottenham are another side dominating some of the key attacking metrics. Leading the attack is Richarlison (£6.9m). The Brazilian has some great fixtures ahead but in terms of actual form he has bagged a goal in all but one of his last six matches.

Arsenal still have a great schedule ahead and one that their main man Bukayo Saka (£9.1m) could thrive in. Saka takes penalties which is brilliant but his underlying data has also been impressive recently. In fact, although Saka is yet to play in Gameweek 21 he still sits second best for total attempts on goal and third best for total shots in the box in the last six Gameweeks.

Chelsea may be coming into a rough run of fixtures but leaving out Cole Palmer (£5.8m) could be a huge mistake. As well as featuring in a strikers role recently and taking penalties Palmer has also racked up three double-digit hauls in his last five matches.

Forwards

The Manchester City double Gameweek ahead makes it essential to invest in one of their strikers for the upcoming period. Julian Alvarez (£7m) is currently a place holder until Erling Haaland returns from injury (with money in the bank to make the switch). Alvarez is on penalty duty with Haaland out of action and he has also hit three returns in his last five matches.

Aston Villa face some of the worst defences in the league ahead so Ollie Watkins (£8.9m) is close to an essential. Watkins has been excellent this season – scoring nine goals and registering right assists in 21 matches.

Brighton’ Joao Pedro (£5.5m) could be a great pick. He sits joint first with Gross for league goals and assists combined this season and takes penalties when on the pitch. Some may decide to bring him into the starting 11 this week rather than leave him on the bench.
