Top picks for GAFFR Gameweek 5

The new Championship campaign continues which means the fantasy game does too! Because of this we provide the top picks for GAFFR Gameweek 5 with the help of our expert GAFFR manager @TomP_FF.

Looking through the top picks for GAFFR Gameweek 5 can be extremely useful for other managers within the Championship Fantasy community. Knowing who the best players to pick are will also help managers make decisions around transfers, captaincy and even chips.

Leif Davis (£5.1m)

One assist in four starts and averaging four key passes a game, Davis is an amazing asset with great bonus potential. Cardiff at home is a great fixture on paper and Davis is in contention to get some form of armband due to his consistency and the favourable fixture this week.

Jay Dasilva (£5.5m)

Dasilva is averaging two key passes and two successful dribbles a game which are great baselines for bonus. Watford at home may seem difficult to some on paper, but they haven’t scored since GW1. Dasilva’ bonus potential combined with a good fixture makes him a great pick this week and a viable option longer term given Coventry’s fixture run.

Luis Sinisterra (£9m)

Sinisterra returned from his strike last weekend and scored and posted great stats (one key passes, four shots on target and two successful dribbles). Leeds face bottom of the league Sheffield Wednesday at home, in what is arguably the best fixture currently. He’s a bit steep in terms of price but with some of the more premium assets underperforming he seems like a great replacement, especially with this weekend in mind.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (£7.7m)

No attacking returns in his last two games, but Dewsbury Hall is still a great pick for this week. He’s averaging 3.8 shots a game and four key passes so far in the first four games which are ridiculous stats for bonus. As said previously I like Hull at home as a fixture and Dewsbury Hall seems a superior pick to team mate Mavididi, and I’d be much more comfortable captaining him over the latter.

Joel Piroe (£10m)

Leeds new man made an instant impact scoring against Ipswich, and is a great captain option this week. A favourable fixture, combined with his bonus potential due to his shot volume make him my personal pick for the haul of the game week. Unclear whether he will be on pens but that would just add a strong to his bow and make him an even better asset.

Conor Chaplin (£6.5m)

I prefer Chaplin to team mate Nathan Broadhead, this week and going forward. He has higher xMins, and competes better on the bonus front. He’s averaging five shots and 1.2 key passes a game, and seems more involved in Ipswich’s play as he averages 12 more touches than Broadhead. As said previously Cardiff at home is a great fixture and Chaplin is a great pick.

Differentials – Ashley Barnes (£7m)

With Sargent potentially injured, Barnes looks like a more attractive option and a great pick. He’s on pens having scoring one against Huddersfield, and he’s averaging 3.5 shots a game. Rotherham away is a great fixture and Barnes could feature as the focal point or paired with Idah, if Sargent is out. A great pick at a great price this week.

Callum Doyle (£6m)

So far this season Doyle has averaged 1.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and one successful dribble a game. He has earned six bonus points so far this season due to these baselines. Hull at home is a nice fixture on paper and combining that with Leicester being a top defence makes him standout this week.

John Swift (£10m)

Being a West Brom fan, I watch a lot of Swift. Although he’s not posted the stats we know he’s capable of, Huddersfield at home is a great fixture for someone of his quality. He’s on pens, and set pieces and against Middlesbrough he seemed to thrive operating as a sort of left inside forward. Two goals in his last two home games coupled with his set piece assist potential make him a great differential this week.
