Gameweek 26 Best Wildcard Team

We look at the Gameweek 26 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 26-30).

Blank Gameweek 29

There will also be a huge Blank Gameweek during this round. The teams likely playing so far include Aston Villa, Tottenham, Brentford, West Ham, Fulham and Burnley.

Gameweek 26 Best Wildcard Team

This squad would give owners a full starting 11 in the upcoming Blank Gameweek, three Double Gameweek 28 players and five players for the huge Blank coming up in Gameweek 29 without transfers.

Goalkeepers

West Ham have been struggling recently but they also have great fixtures which includes a game in Blank Gameweek 29. With that in mind and the fact goalkeepers continue to disappoint it could be wise to spend as little between the sticks as possible to Alphonse Areola (£4.2m).

Backing Areola up is Newcastle’ Martin Dubravka (£4.2m). The Magpies also have some great fixtures and managers could rotate both budget goalkeepers long-term.

Defenders

Wolves have some great fixtures looking ahead and they also have some lovely priced defenders. One of those defenders is Rayan Ait-Nouri (£4.5m) who can get into some of the most advanced positions on the pitch and has shown that recently.

Aston Villa don’t just have good fixtures but they also have a match in Gameweek 29. Investing in their cheap backline could be beneficial in several ways and Pau Torres (£4.6m) is one of their most reliable assets in terms of gametime.

Arsenal have been one of the best defences in the league so regardless of schedule, defensive investment could be crucial. The standout option is of course Gabriel (£5.2m) who sits at a nice price and has goal threat.

Both Bournemouth’ Marcos Senesi (£4.5m) and Luton’ Alfie Doughty (£4.6m) sit on the bench. Both defenders also have a double Gameweek in 28.

Midfielders

Manchester City’ charge for the title and their high scoring rate makes investing in the double attack very appealing. One of their most in-form attackers is Phil Foden (£8.1m) who has managed six returns in his last six games.

Wolves have been racking up more goals than most recently and play some of the worst recent defences in the league looking ahead. Because of that and the fact he has been leading the frontline Hwang Hee-Chan (£5.5m) makes the cut. Hwang has also collected 13 attacking returns in just 21 matches this campaign.

Aston Villa face some very poor defences looking ahead but their match in Gameweek 29 is also a huge appeal. Douglas Luiz (£5.5m) has returned at least once in 10 of his matches so far. He is also one of their most reliable players for gametime and takes penalties.

West Ham have been poor recently but they have the fixtures to change that. The Hammers also play in Gameweek 29 which makes their assets much more appealing. Jarrod Bowen (£7.7m) is his sides standout pick this season having managed 11 goals and two assists already.

Arsenal come up against three poor defences in the next three so it could be very difficult to go without Bukayo Saka (£9m). Saka has been excellent recently – hitting a monstrous 49 points in his last four matches.

Forwards

Leading the lethal and highly motivated Manchester City attack is Erling Haaland (£14.4m). Prior to his injury Haaland was sustaining the best attacking data in the league amongst all players, backing against him could be unwise.

The focal point of the impressive Aston Villa attack is of course Ollie Watkins (£8.7m). Watkins has been brilliant this season and so far has bagged a massive 13 goals and 10 assists in just 25 matches. He could also be one of the standout captaincy options in Blank Gameweek 29.

On the bench is Dominic Solanke (£6.9m) who leads the Bournemouth frontline and takes the penalties. Taking into account his form this season and double Gameweek ahead, Solanke could be an essential moving forward.
