Fantasy Premier League Tips
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 36 Tips – It’s up for grabs now!
It’s finally here. Bumper double gameweek 36 is nearly upon us and it’s time to look at the potential candidates from each club who could literally make or break your season as you bid to win your mini-league or win your personal battles with colleagues, friends and foe. Our Fantasy Premier League gameweek 36 tips look at the usual mix of goalkeepers, defenders, midfielfers and forwards, taking a look at the key players from clubs playing twice (remember it’s a double gameweek for 8 clubs), while keeping an eye on gameweek 37 as well.
Firstly we want to make a few points ahead of FPL gameweek 36. The first is that we don’t think that points will necessarily be won in defence as the fixtures prove tricky to predict. We feel it’s more likely that the REAL points will be gained through your midfield or forward line. Therefore if you’re looking at making a few transfers, using your wildcard (if you still have the luxury of having it to hand), or even if you’re willing to drop a few points with your gameweek 36 transfers, then keep the following points in mind:
Fantasy Football Tips for Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 36
- Don’t be afraid to transferring out (selling) some of your more expensive names). Many fantasy premier league managers got rid of Robin Van Persie to afford Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez before gameweek 35′s fixtures and it paid off. So again, this week, as it’s all about points up for grabs, don’t be afraid to sign in cheaper players who are more likely to give you the advantage over other managers. You may well find some of the more expensive players lose value ahead of gameweek 36, so you should still be able to afford to transfer them back in before gameweek 37 begins.
- The MASSIVE game in the Premier League between Saturday and Monday is the Manchester derby between Manchester United and Manchester City, but the potential title decider could well be a game that fantasy managers choose to avoid with their squad selection as it’s so difficult to predict the outcome.
- There are 8 teams playing twice in gameweek 36. The list again, in case you missed it in our earlier gameweek posts, is as follows; Liverpool, Everton, Tottenham, Chelsea, Newcastle, Stoke, Bolton and Fulham.
- Everton play Wolves in GW 37 so if you’re after a few players who you can keep for the next gameweek, Everton players may be the ones to top your list.
So, after a bit of background ahead of gameweek 36 (which is played between 28th April and 2nd May) here are our Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 36 tips. We’ve given you bundles of choice this time, as it’s a bumper gameweek with lots at stake. The reason for the slightly extended list is that you can obviously only select 3 players from any one team but a mixture of the following names should stand you in good stead:
