A bumper Fantasy Premier League double game week 34 would have caused a few shifts in several mini-leagues and there is a quick turnaround to game week 35 which kicks off less than 48 hours after the final match of DGW34. 

There is another double game week and there are plenty of points on offer as Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur each have two DGWs left this season. Meanwhile, Newcastle United, Manchester City and Manchester United also have good-looking fixtures this weekend.

With that in mind, FootballCastle delivers all the essential advice you might need to haul another massive points tally. Keep in mind that these changes must be effected before the DGW35 deadline at 11 AM GMT on Saturday, 27 April 2024. 


Jordon Pickford (£4.7m)

The England goalkeeper kept two clean sheets over DGW34 to record his season-high 18 points and will be hoping to carry the momentum into a crucial match against Brentford.

Pickford goes there in search of a fourth consecutive clean sheet at home and he should extend his tally as the highest-scoring goalkeeper in FPL. 

Ederson (£5.5m)

Shutouts may have been scarce for Manchester City but they have their sights set on winning a fourth straight Premier League title and a GW35 meeting against Nottingham Forest holds appeal amidst a good run of fixtures.


Gabriel Magalhães (£5.4m)

Gabriel is a mainstay in the Arsenal defence that has kept 16 clean sheets this season while failing to keep a clean sheet only once in the last six games.

The Brazilian has the most attacking potential amongst his defensive teammates and he could be key with returns at both ends of the pitch during the title run-in. 

Harry Maguire (£4.2m) 

The Man United centreback reminded everyone of his attacking potential with a goal and assist against Sheffield United. After registering a season-high 12 points last time out, Maguire can haul against Burnley who have conceded the second most headed shots in the league.

He has two goals, three assists and two clean sheets at Old Trafford this season and his 2.0% ownership makes him a wonderful differential pick with a huge upside. 

Fabian Schär (£5.7m) 

The Swiss is the most-bought defender ahead of DGW35 as he boasts 21 points from a goal and two clean sheets in the last three matches. Schär faces Sheffield United and Burnley in back-to-back games before facing Brighton and Manchester United in DGW37.

FPL managers would be smart to keep him for the rest of the campaign. 


Phil Foden (£8.2m)

Phil Foden

The Man City ace has scored eight times over his last six matches and he should be crucial as Pep Guardiola’s side aim to win their remaining matches in order to lift the Premier League title. 

Foden’s brace against Brighton reminded everyone of his prospects and he is now a hot pick against Nottingham Forest. Despite the risk of rotation due to Champions League football, Foden should get plenty of minutes.

Cole Palmer (£6.2m) 

Chelsea are indeed Cole Palmer FC, after 10 goals and three assists over his last six games, Palmer has made his claim as an elite asset as he rose to the top of the midfield rankings. 

The brilliant forward missed Chelsea’s midweek thrashing at Arsenal to expose the team’s great dependence on him given he has produced the most FPL points since GW28. If fit, Palmer could return with a bang against Aston Villa and Tottenham and he still has another DGW left this term.

Eberechi Eze (£6.1m)

The Crystal Palace playmaker has now returned as they secured consecutive wins against Liverpool, West Ham and Newcastle. Eze is a popular asset against Fulham and his bargain price could be an easy choice in the remainder of this season. 

Bruno Fernandes (£8.3m)

Fernandes has returned in his last four GWs and scored in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend so he is ending the campaign in a strong run of form. Burnley are his next opponents in DGW35 and the Man United captain will be confident of registering returns where he hasn’t blanked in his last five home games. 

Brennan Johnson (£5.8m)

The Spurs winger has established himself on the right and is their best FPL asset since the international break with three goal involvements. Ahead of two DGWs left in 2023/24, Johnson has registered two goals and seven assists in his last eight home games but he is in just over 1% of FPL squads.

Anthony Gordon (£6.2m)

As far as home matches go, Gordon is a sure pick with nine goals and 11 assists from 16 starts this season. You can hardly bet against him hauling against Sheffield United following his stellar 17-point return the last time he played at St. James’ pArk.


Nicolas Jackson (£6.8m)

Having avoided a tenth yellow card of the season at Arsenal in midweek, Jackson’s appeal has risen for DGW35 especially considering he scored a hat-trick in the reverse fixture against Spurs.

Three goals and as many assists in his last eight games is enough to earn Jackson a shout with a recent standout performance coming in the 6-0 rout of Everton. Chelsea were unbeaten in eight matches before they faced Arsenal so their striker could provide good value with his two DGWs.

Alexander Isak (£8.1m)

Isak boasts seven goals and an assist over the last seven games and he has the fixtures to end the season on a high. Newcastle face Sheffield United and Burnley next which makes their striker the most-bought player ahead of GW35. 

Jean-Philippe Mateta (£5.1m)

The Crystal Palace striker is in a prolific run of form with five goals and one assist in the last four matches. With 5.1% ownership and a bargain price to boot, the Frenchman could wreak havoc in FPL as the season winds down.
