The 24/25 Premier League Fixtures are OUT NOW!

Gameweek 27 best wildcard

Looking at the Gameweek 27 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 our planning.

Fixture ticker

We can see from the ticker below, the teams at the top have the easiest fixtures, whilst the teams at the bottom have the toughest fixtures up to Gameweek 32 (a six match period).

Who has the best fixtures?

Brentford, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Leeds rank amongst the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Manchester City, Fulham, Everton, Liverpool and Wolves all rank amongst the bottom teams with the toughest fixtures.

Team balance

It is vital we build a squad that can both navigate the blank Gameweek ahead but also attack the double Gameweeks.

The best wildcard team

Trying to find the right balance between teams and players that have blanks and double Gameweeks ahead could be key. It is also worth noting that we will have free transfers to use between each Gameweek as well.

Goalkeepers

Brentford have two double Gameweeks ahead whilst also playing a fixture in blank Gameweek 28 so they are arguably the best team to invest in moving forward. They also rank joint second best for goals conceded (four), third best for shots in the box conceded (33) and joint third best for big chances conceded (seven). Because of that it could be wise to include David Raya (£4.8m).

Leicester’s Danny Ward (£4m) will feature in the unlikely event that Raya does not. He also plays in blank Gameweek 28 and has a double Gameweek in 29.

Defenders

Brentford play two of the worst attacks in the league in the round ahead, Everton and Southampton, so it could be worth doubling up on their defence with fullback Rico Henry (£4.5m) who advances into some great attacking positions.

Newcastle rank as the best defence in the league and Kieran Trippier (£6m) dominates the distribution stats amongst all defenders in the league. They also face fixtures in the blank Gameweek and double immediately after so doubling up on the defence could be beneficial. Sven Botman (£4.5m) will sit patiently on the bench until replacing a blank Gameweek player within the squad.

Brighton rank joint second for goals conceded (four), the best for shots in the box conceded (28), the best shots in target conceded (nine) and the best for big chances conceded (three). Because of this and his great attacking threat Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m) makes the squad.

Chelsea have been using their wingback system recently and this benefits Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) hugely who picked up an assist and a clean sheet in his most recent match. The Blues also play in the blank Gameweek and double immediately after. He will sit on the bench waiting to replace a blank Gameweek player in the next round.

Midfielders

Brighton face some of the worst defences in the rounds ahead and they also play two double Gameweeks. In addition, they also rank amongst the best five teams in the league in the last six matches for attempts on goal (91), shots in the box (60) and big chances total (21). Because of this investing in Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m) who takes his teams penalties and is taking up a new advanced role and Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m) who has banked three double-digit hauls in his last six matches could be a wise move.

No player has scored more goals than Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford in the last six matches (six). His form is too hard to ignore. The midfielder also has a double Gameweek after his blank Gameweek in 28 so will be benched in the round after the one ahead.

Arsenal do not have a double or a blank Gameweek in the rounds ahead and they have also been sustaining some of the best attacking stats in the league this season. Penalty taker Bukayo Saka (£8.5m) has picked up four returns in his last six matches.

Leicester play in blank Gameweek 28 and also double immediately after that. In Gameweek 29 the Foxes play two teams conceding some of the worst defensive stats in the league as of late, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. Midfielder James Maddison (£8.1m) has managed 14 returns in his 18 Premier League matches this season. Maddison will replace a blank player in Gameweek 28 off the bench.

Forwards

Manchester City and Erling Haaland (£12.2m) have been maintaining some of the best offensive stats in the league this season. Although Haaland blanks in Gameweek 28 he is the highest scoring and highest owned player in the game so going without him could cause serious harm in terms of rank and mini-league position.

Brentford face five fixtures in the next three Gameweeks. Two of those teams include Everton and Southampton who are both struggling defensively whilst also fighting a relegation battle. Because of this penalty Ivan Toney (£7.6m) could be an absolute essential moving forward.

Aston Villa play in Gameweek 28 and double immediately double after that so it could be wise to move on the in-form Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) who has picked up five returns in his last six matches.
