Looking at the Gameweek 6 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. FPL have given the community two wildcards to use in each half of the season. In addition, unlike any other season FPL have also provided managers with unlimited transfers during the World Cup.
Using the season ticker, we can change the range of gameweeks up until the point managers are given free transfers during the World Cup. Below we can see the teams that have the best fixtures at the top all the way down to the teams that have the worst fixtures at the bottom.
The obvious options
Some players don’t need the help of the fixture to identify as great options long term. Some of those key players consist of Liverpool assets Salah and Trent. Along with those Man City options like Cancelo and Haaland. Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus could also be considered as an easy to include option.
Other great options – James
Chelsea rank fourth on the fixture ticker right up until the free transfers in Gameweek 15. This could indicate investing in the blues is a good idea. With Chelsea attackers still finding their feet it could be the defence manager’s turn to for investment.
Although the Chelsea defence is still trying to stabilise £6.1m defender Reece James continues to churn out FPL points. The wing-back has come away with two attacking returns already this season and continuously provides great attacking stats along the way. The Chelsea defender has to be heavily considered for wildcard users moving forward.
Leeds rank just behind Chelsea in fifth on the season ticker. In the next three matches they come up against Everton, Brentford and Nottingham Forest so the potential is there. £6.5m midfielder Rodrigo sits as the second highest FPL points returner in the game, only behind Man City forward Haaland (at the time of writing).
Rodrigo’s form is reflected in his underlying offensive stats. Amongst all players he is joint second for attempts on goal and second for shots in the box. This shows that although returning goal contributions the opportunity for more is there.
Brentford have the second-best fixtures in the league according to the fixture ticker. For that reason, investing in them could be very beneficial to FPL managers moving forward. In addition, the also play Crystal Palace, Leeds and Southampton in the next three gameweeks.
At the time of writing Toney makes it into the top 10 scoring FPL players so far with 27 points. That tally could be set to rise with his fixtures and Brentford’s scoring form. The £7.2m forward could be a key target for managers moving forward.
