The 24/25 Premier League Fixtures are OUT NOW!

Gameweek 36 Best Wildcard Team

In this article we focus on the Gameweek 36 best wildcard team. Using the fixture ticker and underlying data from the Fantasy Football Scout members area we build the best wildcard team for the run ahead. Here, we also consider two different drafts for two different chip strategies.

The period ahead could be very challenging for FPL managers to navigate so many within the community could be ready to shake up their fantasy teams. Because of this taking a look at the Gameweek 36 best wildcard team could be extremely beneficial.

Fixture Ticker

Below we can see that the fixture ticker covers the next three Gameweeks (from Gameweek 36-38).

Who has the best fixtures?

Newcastle, Chelsea, Manchester City, Brighton and Manchester United all rank amongst the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Wolves, Bournemouth, West Ham, Liverpool and Aston Villa all rank in the bottom five teams with toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 36 Best Wildcard Team

This Wildcard draft is built around the use of the Bench Boost in Gameweeek 37. It could also however be used by managers without the chip left to play.


The lack of Chelsea defender options pushes into selecting Dorde Petrovic (£4.6m). Not only do Chelsea have great fixtures from now until the end of the season but they also play, arguably, one of the easiest doubles in Gameweek 37.

Tottenham double in Gameweek 37 but they also play Sheffield United on the final day of the season. Because of this Guglielmo Vicario (£5.3m) could have potential.


Newcastle have great fixtures so investing in their defence could be wise. Dan Burn (£4.6m) seems to be one of the cheapest and most reliable routes into the backline.

Another team with a great schedule and double Gameweek is Manchester United. Diogo Dalot (£5.2m) could be their standout defender due to his underlying data. Some could also opt for Harry Maguire (£4.2m) who scored in one of his recent matches.

Manchester City have kept back to back clean sheets now for the first time since February. Josko Gvardiol (£5m) has been impressive offensively but Kyle Walker (£5.4m) remains the safest option in terms of gametime moving forward.

Tottenham’ fixtures makes investing in one of the most attacking defenders in the league an easy inclusion. Pedro Porro (£5.8m) scored in one of his most recent matches and remains top amongst defenders for total attempts on goal.

The limited defensive options to Bench Boost in Gameweek 37 is a concern. That leads us to our next pick Lewis Dunk (£5.2m) who although unconvincing when looking ahead in terms of clean sheets, he can be a major goal threat from set pieces.


Due to the schedule and 20 goals scored this season Cole Palmer (£6.2m) is an easy addition. Palmer could also be a standout captaincy option in Gameweek 37 so his addition is crucial.

Manchester City have a fantastic double from an attacking perspective. Although missing out to illness in the previous round Phil Foden (£8.3m) looks set to start moving forward. Foden has managed two huge double-digit hauls in his last two matches.

Newcastle’ attacking form has been fantastic recently so investing in their attack is essential. One half of the deadly duo is of course Anthony Gordon (£6.3m) who has collected 28 points in his last three matches.

Manchester United’ double Gameweek in 37 makes them extremely investable this week. Bruno Fernandes (£8.5m) is the standout pick after seven goals in his last six matches. He also takes penalties which is a huge factor towards his appeal.

Completing the midfield is Tottenham penalty taker Son Heung-Min (£9.9m). The Double Gameweek ahead means he has more fixtures than most other options in the game.


Although frustrating Nicolas Jackson (£6.8m) has a great double ahead. Chelsea may be hit an miss in terms of results but they continue to average more goals than most other sides recently.

Leading the Manchester City frontline is penalty taker Erling Haaland (£14.1m). Haaland scored in his return against Nottingham Forest last week and has a very attractive schedule ahead.

Completing the deadly duo in the Newcastle frontline is Alexander Isak (£8.3m). Isak has netted seven times in his last six league matches and has been one of the most in-form players in the league recently.

We take a look at the best players to buy in each position for Gameweek 36 here.
