Gameweek 11 is over and it was quite eventful one. Let's take a look at the top players to consider for the coming gameweeks.
Following Erling Haaland’s one-point performance, Fantasy Premier League managers find themselves in a scramble, having the need to reconfigure their teams in preparation for the upcoming period. Here are five players that the potential to shine in gameweek 12. Managers face the dilemma of deciding whether making one or two early-week transfers is a worthwhile risk or if it’s wiser to hold off until after the European matches, potentially leading to higher player prices.
After another round of Fantasy Premier League matches, managers are reflecting on a weekend that brought either frustration or happiness, featuring some expected results, numerous goals, etc. This week offers another chance to regroup, make adjustments to your team, or even use your wildcard to make substantial changes while some in-form players remain relatively affordable. As the Premier League enters its 12th week, here are ten players we believe could make an impact.
Given the concern surrounding Erling Haaland’s ankle injury, Evan Ferguson could serve as a valuable alternative. This would free up extra funds that could be invested elsewhere, possibly to acquire Mohamed Salah. The Brighton striker has upcoming home fixtures against Sheffield United and an away match against Nottingham Forest. He has also been a regular starter in the last three games for Brighton. Priced at just 6.0 and showing the potential to consistently, such as his impressive 17-point performance against Newcastle earlier this season, Ferguson could be a practical choice for managers looking to make cost-effective adjustments through transfers or their wildcard.
Despite West Ham’s recent three consecutive losses, Jarrod Bowen remains a dependable source of fantasy points. He has played the full 90 minutes in every game this season and has recently scored goals, including one in the 3-2 loss to Brentford. Bowen’s consistency suggests he can maintain his form even when his team is not winning. Additionally, he offers the potential for penalties, direct free-kicks, and set-piece opportunities, giving fantasy managers a high ceiling. With seven league goals, an assist, and seven bonus points already this season, he represents great value, especially with upcoming fixtures against Nottingham Forest, Burnley, and Crystal Palace.
Pau Torres is a budget-friendly option who could be a valuable addition to your lineup, with a match against Fulham at Villa Park as a potential option this weekend. Priced at just 4.6, Torres allows managers to allocate their budget elsewhere. He consistently plays the full 90 minutes for Aston Villa under manager Unai Emery. With Fulham struggling to score in recent Premier League matches, Villa will aim to bounce back from their loss to Forest. Torres could be a cost-effective choice for managers.
For managers willing to make a premium investment, Mohamed Salah is an appealing option, especially if concerns about Haaland’s condition are present. With a match against Brentford at Anfield before the international break, Salah could potentially produce a high-scoring performance to help Liverpool recover from the recent draw with Luton and prepare for their visit to Manchester City. He has been consistently reliable as a captain option. This ensures a high ceiling for those who choose to make him their captain or use the triple captain option.
Cameron Archer is an affordable striker option suitable for filling your bench or bringing into your squad. He scored in Sheffield United’s recent 2-1 victory over Wolves and has been a regular starter, playing the full 90 minutes in four of his last seven games. Archer has also earned maximum bonus points in two Premier League games this season. With upcoming fixtures against Brighton, Bournemouth, and Burnley, and a low price of 4.5, managers won’t have to compromise much in other areas to accommodate his potential upside.
