Fantasy Premier League gameweek 29 sees a full fixture list after last weekend’s FA Cup matches. With a return of players, it’s a relief to many FPL managers out there. A lack of points was caused by last week’s selections headache, so which FPL midfielders should you seek out for gameweek 29?
Sadio Mane – Liverpool
Games: 25; Goals: 12; Total FPL points: 149
Sure, Sadio Mane didn’t have a good gameweek 28. Nor did he have a good fixture against Manchester City the last time around. However, not picking the Liverpool midfielder would be a major mistake.
Mane has scored double-digit points seven times this season, and Liverpool start a fantastic stretch of potentially high-point scoring games in the weeks to follow. Daily fantasy sports and FPL managers need Mane this weekend and everyone after.
Eden Hazard – Chelsea
Games: 26; Goals: 11; Total FPL points: 163
Eden Hazard missed out on Premier League action last weekend, but previous to the FA Cup break, Hazard had turned in a blinder against West Ham. One goal in an 11 point performance, Hazard has tallied seven double-digit gameweeks in 2016-17.
Get him in your DFS or FPL side as Chelsea take on Stoke and Crystal Palace in the next two matches.
Dele Alli – Tottenham
Games: 26; Goals: 13; Total FPL points: 155
Dele Alli continues to put the points away and his gameweek 27 performance of 12 points gives him a lot of potential to do it all again in gameweek 29. Southampton are up next for Spurs, and Harry Kane is out with another injury. Alli will need to continue his fine form to keep Spurs in the top four. All reasons to get him in your team.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Swansea
Games: 28; Goals: 8; Total FPL points: 143
Four assists in his last four matches, Gylfi Sigurdsson continues to perform week in, week out. The last seven gameweeks have seen Sigurdsson score five points or more; including last week’s seven point return in Swansea’s loss to Hull.
Only £7.7, Sigurdsson is a great DFS or FPL draft this week. Bournemouth and Middlesbrough are both up next for Swansea. Bournemouth have given up the second most goals in the Premier League – after Swansea – so expect fireworks.
Michail Antonio – West Ham
Games: 26; Goals: 9; Total FPL points: 125
Michail Antonio is infuriating, because he blows so hot and cold. Gameweek 28 saw him tally eight points with a goal, and in two matches against Bournemouth this season, he scored a total of 19 points.
West Ham face a rejuvenated Leicester in their gameweek 29 match. Based on Leicester’s midweek Champions League victory and Antonio’s performance last time out, he makes our top 5. Hopefully, he won’t let us down.
