Fantasy Premier League Tips
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 38 Tips; They think it’s all over…It nearly is!
It’s a rather sombre thought isn’t it? The Barclays Premier League draws to a close on Sunday, and with it, so does the Fantasy Premier League fantasy football season. It’s been a roller coaster ride for many fantasy football managers, with highs and lows, a mix of luck for some and torment for others. But that’s why we all love the official Fantasy Premier League so much. As we move ever closer to gameweek 38, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help motivate all Fantasy Premier League managers one last time, and gameweek 38 could yet make or break your season so it’s still very much worth getting right.
Many fantasy football managers may be sat content, thinking that they’re safe, while others are perhaps resigned to the fact that they’re never going to catch up their closest rivals with only one gameweek left. But let us help to blow that idea away with our gameweek 38 tips. Our view is that Fantasy Premier League gameweek 38 is perhaps the most important of all gameweeks. After all, it’s where titles are won or lost, and gameweek 38 often leads to panic amongst managers at the top. Managers who perhaps make wholesale changes to their teams simply to try and maintain their lead and cross the finish line in first place. I for one, have made this mistake in my youth, dropping from first to second after the final gameweek, although I’ve learnt my lesson since, and am currently sitting at the top of my mini-league again this season, while I”m also lounging in the top 0.18% of all fantasy managers, out of some 2.7million players of this season’s game.
As usual, our gameweek 38 tips will cover the key players you’ll need in your squad for all positions, while we’ll also cover captain tips before the weekend’s action begins. So, our biggest gameweek 38 tip this week is keep calm, and carry on! Don’t go losing countless points on transfers unless you can definitely afford to do so. Even if you’re 20 points ahead of your closest rival, it’s a lead that can easily be lost with the wrong captain choice or a few too many transfers. Make one or two transfers at best, perhaps take a four point hit if necessary, but do enough to stay ahead of your rivals, not too much that you’ll damage all the hard work you’ve put in over the previous 37 gameweeks!

OTHER OPTIONS FOR GAMEWEEK 38
Norwich City’s Grant Holt, £5.1m and Manchester City’s Yaya Toure, £7.8m respectively are also worth a shout if you’re after other options for gameweek 38, but since you can only include 3 players from any team in your Fantasy Premier League lineup, we’ve omitted Toure from our first choice midfielders, despite impressive performances over recent weeks. Lastly, we’d suggest that the best formation this week is 3-4-3.
