Fantasy Premier League Game Week 14 is upon us after another round of European action as the season enters its busiest period. Indeed, squad rotation and gem picks will be key going forward hence managers will have to be witty and lucky.
It is important to plan your squad carefully and look out for unexpected twists with the games coming thick and fast. As always, the FootballCastle brings the best potential considerations to keep in mind when making transfers or preparing your lineup.
Remember that these moves must be made ahead of the Game Week 14 deadline at 13:30 GMT on Saturday, 2 December.
Caoimhin Kelleher (£3.9m)
Alisson Becker’s hamstring injury means the Irishman boasts huge value against Fulham, Sheffield and Crystal Palace in the next three GWs. Liverpool are in great form with just a single league defeat all season and Kelleher should keep a clean sheet against the goal-shy Cottagers in GW14.
Mark Flekken (£4.5m)
The Dutchman is back in contention following consecutive defeats to Arsenal and Liverpool. After earning save points from the last two GWs, Flekken should have an easier runout against Luton Town who have netted only 12 times from 13 matches.
Ben Mee (£4.8m)
The Brentford man’s return from injury should begin to bear fruits with a favourable run of games starting with Luton Town’s visit.
Mee’s threat from set-pieces as well as the guarantee of defensive returns should see him soar in FPL points over the busy schedule.
Kostas Tsimikas (£4.7m)
Tsimikas has gained 30 FPL points in the five GWs since replacing the injured Andy Robertson in Liverpool’s backline. He now faces an easy run of fixtures with a high clean sheet potential combined with set-piece duties.
Cole Palmer (£5.3m)
Despite a quiet outing last time out at Newcastle, Palmer is Chelsea’s top-scoring player in the game since his first start in GW7. With four goals and three assists, the forward is tipped to have an all-round impact against Brighton whom he also delivered a match-winning assist in the League Cup earlier this season.
The Seagulls have a long injury list and are yet to keep a clean sheet this season.
Michael Olise (£5.8m)
The Crystal Palace maestro made an instant impact in his first start of the campaign with a dazzling goal that showed his undoubted class. That lone strike in the defeat at Luton earned Olise 10 points and he can build on that in upcoming matches against West Ham and Bournemouth.
The winger led Crystal Palace for shots and chances created in GW13 and he is a solid differential pick with less than one per cent of managers even owning him.
Anthony Gordon (£5.9m)
Gordon has been flawless in his home games this season after a goal and assist against Chelsea continued his streak of returns in all seven matches at St James’ Park.
The winger is enjoying his most productive Premier League campaign and Manchester United are the next visitors in GW14.
Bryan Mbeumo (£7.0m)
The Brentford man is the most transferred-in player ahead of GW14 against a Luton side who have failed to keep a clean sheet away from home.
Mbeumo offers the biggest route to a Brentford goal with his all-round potential, guaranteed playing time and penalty duties.
Mohammed Kudus (£6.6m)
The Ghana international is becoming a key figure for West Ham and he stepped up with two assists in the absence of Jarrod Bowen last weekend. Kudus now has two double-digit returns in his last three GWs and he faces interesting upcoming fixtures against Crystal Palace, a depleted Tottenham, Fulham and Wolves.
Raheem Sterling (£7.0m)
Sterling has been catching the eye with attacking returns in three consecutive GWs and he will be pleased to face Brighton in his best form of the season.
The winger has the ability to haul in GW14 particularly as Roberto De Zerbi’s team do not have a league clean sheet so far.
Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)
Tottenham and Luton are the only sides who were able to keep Salah from registering a goal contribution but he is yet to blank at home this season.
The Egyptian has found the net five times in his last three matches at Anfield and will start after playing less than an hour in midweek.
Tomáš Souček (£4.9m)
The West Ham midfielder has netted successive winning goals beyond the 88th minute in their last three matches and can keep up that form at home to Crystal Palace.

Notably, Souček has the underlying stats to back up his attacking performances which could become key in the coming weeks given his 1.7 per cent ownership.
Ollie Watkins (£8.5m)
Not many have found a way to stop the Aston Villa marksman after seven goals and eight assists in just 13 appearances this term.
Watkins is one of the hottest picks for a trip to Bournemouth who have the third-worst defence for goals conceded so far.
Alexander Isak (£7.4m)
The opening strike of a 4-1 win over Chelsea took him to seven goals from only nine games and he backed that up with another goal at Paris Saint-Germain in midweek. Isak’s importance to the Newcastle attack cannot be overemphasized and he is primed to bulge the net once more at home to Manchester United.
Erling Haaland (£14.0m)
Haaland is peaking after 48 points in his last five GWs when he scored six times and assisted twice. The Norwegian should register another haul against a makeshift Tottenham defence that is missing key men through injury and suspension.
