Fantasy Premier League

As the Premier League season nears its climax, the opportunities to get Fantasy Premier League points continue to reduce. Thus, decisions concerning the squad are even more cut-throat. 

This is another double game week with seven sides playing twice over the next few days and only Wolves, Leeds and Aston Villa are without a fixture. Hence, those still in possession of a Free Hit chip could use it as the teams playing twice are full of differential options.

FootballCastle will deliver the best tips to navigate this game week ahead of the deadline at 11:00 BST on Saturday, April 16 2022.


Kasper Schmeichel (£4.9m)

Betway Nigeria

The Leicester City man faces two of the bottom six sides in DGW33, with fixtures against Newcastle and Everton. Schmeichel has totalled 33 points in his last six matches and deserves a shout due to that consistency of points. 

Martin Dubravka (£4.4m) 

Newcastle face Leicester and Crystal Palace with a decent home record where they have conceded only four goals in their last six home matches.


Joao Cancelo (£7.0m)

The popular full-back ended a run of seven games without an attacking return by providing the assist for Gabriel Jesus’ goal against Liverpool. Cancelo looks a great pick for the season run-in given Manchester City’s favourable fixtures and he next faces Brighton who have only scored three times in their last eight games.

Fabian Schar (£4.4m)

The defender has become a popular target for managers in GW33 due to Newcastle’s double fixtures. Schar is the most-bought defender so far in this Gameweek and has been his team’s top FPL performer recently with two goals, an assist, two clean sheets and five bonus points across the last five GWs. 

Fabian Schar

After earning 39 points, Newcastle’s DGW33 opponents are both susceptible at set-pieces which will please the Swiss defender. 

Gabriel (£5.4m)

The centre-back has averaged 5.2 points per away match having registered three goals, 13 clean sheets and 13 bonus points this season. Arsenal have lost three of their last four games but their Brazilian defender is a reliable pick for the matches against Southampton and Chelsea.


James Maddison (£7.0m)

Leicester have a good set of fixtures against Newcastle and Everton after finding good form recently. 

Thus, Maddison is the most-bought player for DGW33 having blanked only twice in his previous seven appearances, combining two goals with three assists.

The attacking midfielder has provided a goal contribution in his last three games in a row and scored in the sensational late win over PSV in midweek. 

Bukayo Saka (£6.8m)

With an appearance in 33% of squads, Saka has proven to be a key influence in Arsenal’s attack and his totals of 13 shots, nine shots in the box and 12 chances created rank highest in his team over the last four Gameweeks.

Youri Tielemans (£6.4m)

A bonafide differential pick who is present in only 3.6% of squads, Tielemans is Leicester’s second top-scoring outfield player in FPL this season after scoring six goals and supplying two assists to collect 97 points. 

He remains a reliable (and cheaper) alternative to Maddison in the Foxes’ midfield and will continue on penalty duties in the absence of the injured Jamie Vardy.

Maxwel Cornet (£5.9m)

Burnley’s top FPL asset has hit seven goals which is by far the highest in the team, and their remaining schedule suggests the explosive Ivorian can enjoy a successful end to the season. 

What’s more? Cornet is in a mere 1.3% of squads ahead of DGW33 and Sean Dyche’s shock sacking might spark an overperformance from the team in the final weeks. 

Son Heung-min (£11.1m)

Son Heung-Min

The South Korean faces Brighton in his most prolific form of the season. Son is now second in the overall FPL player standings after registering six goals, an assist and 48 points in his last three outings.


Harry Kane (£12.6m)

The urge to triple up on Tottenham’s attack is growing stronger with each game, but a double is just as good. Kane has five goals and eight assists in his last seven matches and despite not scoring in the last three, he has provided a remarkable seven FPL assists. 

Kane will be hungry to get back among the goals and should be looking forward to doing so against the Seagulls whom he has already scored three times against this season.

Chris Wood (£6.7m) 

The striker scored the winner to earn nine points in the previous home fixture and his 17 shots in the box and four big chances are the most in the squad since joining Newcastle in January. 

Wood leads the Newcastle squad for expected goals and could be set to explode against Leicester and Crystal Palace whom he would be facing directly after testing fixtures in Europe and the FA Cup semi-final respectively. 

Ivan Toney (£6.9m)

The Brentford marksman has scored six times in his last five games as the team looks to be ending the season on a high. GW33 opponents Watford are on course for relegation after losing their last nine home games and Toney can capitalize on their poor record at Vicarage Road.
