Erling Haaland

The penultimate Gameweek of the 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League campaign is a make-or-break scenario for many managers who want a final chance to rise in their mini-leagues.

This is because the likes of Brighton, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are playing twice in Double Gameweek 37. There is no better time to play the Bench Boost chip as it presents the opportunity to get points from all 15 players in the squad. 

Your choice of captain could hence differentiate you from the crowd and the FootballCastle has all the information you need ahead of the Double Gameweek 37 deadline at 11:00 BST on Saturday, 11 May.


Jordan Pickford (£4.8m)

Betway Nigeria

The Englishman has been in form recently with four clean sheets from the last six matches. Pickford is a great bench option despite his one game in DGW37 at home to relegated Sheffield United. 

Dorde Petrovic (£4.7m) 

The Chelsea ‘keeper faces Nottingham Forest and Brighton after three clean sheets in his last four GWs. Petrovic has now kept consecutive shutouts and he is a guarantee of save points even when he concedes.


Lewis Dunk (£5.2m)

Dunk is a goalscoring defender which means he is more than likely to get an attacking return in Brighton’s last three matches of the season. 

Dan Burn (£4.7m) 

The Newcastle man is a popular pick in DGW37 partly due to Fabian Schar’s injury and he is now a strong prospect at both ends of the pitch. 

Burn is a threat from set-pieces while he could even come away with a clean sheet against one of Brighton, Man United or Brentford. 


Phil Foden (£8.4m) 

The Man City star returned with an assist last time out against Wolves and he is set to step up for one final push for the Premier League title. 

Foden is a strong captaincy candidate for DGW37 against Fulham and Tottenham after five goals and an assist in his last three appearances.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.5m)

De Bruyne forms a double option into Pep Guardiola’s midfield following three goals and as many assists for 42 FPL points in his last five matches. 

The Belgian is in contention for the DGW37 armband as he may be too much for Fulham and Spurs. 

Cole Palmer (£6.3m) 

Cole Palmer

The April Player of The Month and Goal of The Month winner has produced five goals and an assist for 42 points over his last four games. Palmer is also the top-scoring midfielder in FPL but his DGW37 fixtures are both away from home where he is less potent. 

He is nevertheless a top pick, but I would not advise captaining the Chelsea marksman. 

Anthony Gordon (£6.4m) 

Over the last four GWs, Gordon has totalled five assists and a goal as Newcastle have scored at least four goals in three of their last four matches. 

The winger is backed by almost 25% of owners to return in DGW37 and you can’t miss out on potential points against both Brighton and Man Utd.

Noni Madueke (£5.3m) 

Madueke is ending the season in some impressive form with two goals and two assists in his last three matches. 

His biggest points haul of the season (13) last time out means the Chelsea winger is a hot pick, yet he remains in only 1% of FPL squads. Well worth a punt against Nottingham Forest and Brighton.


Nicolas Jackson (£7.0m) 

The Senegal striker has delivered four goals and three assists in his last five games and few managers are willing to miss out on his potential haul in DGW37.

Chelsea are averaging three goals per match in that period and Jackson is behind some of their good work in attack. 

Erling Haaland (£14.2m) 

Seven goals and an assist in the last four games is enough evidence that the Norwegian is set to end the season on a high after Haaland scored four against Wolves. 

That haul proves his season-best of 21 points but he can provide much more points in the final three matches of the season. 

Alexander Isak (£8.4m) 

The Swede is a huge differential option for the DGW37 captaincy after recording five goals and an assist over his last four appearances. 

Isak’s form is reliable going into double fixtures against Brighton and Man Utd considering he’s been involved in two goals each from three of those matches. 

Callum Wilson (£7.8m) 

The Newcastle no. 9 has scored in consecutive games since returning from injury and he can be trusted to perform in DGW37 given he started alongside Isak against Burnley last week.

Yet, Wilson is owned by just over 3% of FPL managers compared to his striker partner (41%) which makes him a brilliant differential option who is likely to appear in all of his remaining fixtures.
