Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 10 Sleepers XI

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Our Gameweek 10 Sleepers XI article provides Fantrax managers with a lineup of Fantasy EPL hidden gems.  Our starting eleven of Draft Premier League differential picks will help you find a golden ticket to a big score this weekend!  These hints and tips will give you a better chance of picking up an all-important victory, as one of our picks could easily make the difference in a Head-to-Head game!

We'll be focusing on players that will bring us not only attacking returns or clean sheets, but also those players that score Ghost Points in the sophisticated and statistics based Fantrax Scoring System!

Fantasy EPL Gameweek 10 Sleepers XI

For this article, we use the % rostered from Fantrax. Our only rule is that each player we highlight is required to be rostered in 60% of leagues or below at the time of writing. Therefore there's a good chance these players will be free agents in your Fantrax Draft League!

GK: Lukasz Fabianski

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Aston Villa (Away)

Rostered: 35%

Points Last Gameweek: 18

ProspectsFabianski has kept back-to-back clean sheets, and could have a decent chance at another one this weekend. Villa are an inconsistent team, so it remains to be seen how they will do. Fabianski will likely have a few saves to make, and with a clean sheet could see another 15+ score.

DEF: Mohammed Salisu

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Watford (away)

Rostered: 35%

Points Last Gameweek: 8.25

Prospects: Salisu is almost a mainstay in this article, and having scored 12.25 ghost points last week he should be in for a similar output vs. Watford. Watford are on a high after their 5 goal attacking fest, but I don't see them scoring more than 1-2 goals this weekend. Even with that Salisu should be close to double digits.

DEF: Nuno Tavares

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Leicester (Away)

Rostered: 10%

Points Last Gameweek: 8.75

ProspectsTavares made his first EPL start last weekend, and could be in for his 2nd in the early kickoff. Leicester might be without Vardy, and if so I like Tavares for a high upside DEF2. He gets forward plenty and could get an attacking return even if Arsenal don't keep a clean sheet this weekend.

DEF: Ben Johnson

Team: West Ham United

Opponent: Aston Villa (Away)

Rostered: 7%

Points Last Gameweek: 14.25

Prospects: Moyes has a tough decision to make this weekend on Johnson vs. Coufal. Johnson has arguably been West Ham's best player since he broke into the team this season, but Coufal has been a mainstay. If Johnson gets the start he is one of the best streamers out there for defenders.

DEF: Rayan Ait-Nouri

Team: Wolves

Opponent: Everton (Home)

Rostered: 13%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.25

ProspectsAit-Nouri finally made his first start for Wolves last weekend, and was all over the pitch. He did come off with a minor injury, but assuming it's nothing serious he should get another start on Monday. The biggest issue is Monday is the last game but a pivot to Kilman is the right move if Ait-Nouri doesn't start.

MID: Christian Norgaard

Team: Brentford

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 29%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.5

ProspectsNorgaard is steadily becoming a useable Fantrax asset, and has a very good matchup against one of the worst teams in the EPL on Saturday. Norgaard should offer MID5 value this weekend, but it remains to be seen if he can keep up this production.

MID: Milot Rashica

Team: Norwich

Opponent: Leeds (Home)

Rostered: 24%

Points Last Gameweek: 1

ProspectsRashica is the punt of the week coming up against a leaky Leeds defence. He could get the start after coming on at half-time against Chelsea. Rashica hasn't exactly made a name for himself in the EPL yet, but will be looking to start turning a corner, and there is no better matchup than a home one vs. Leeds.

MID: Scott McTominay

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Tottenham (Away)

Rostered: 17%

Points Last Gameweek: 11

ProspectsMcTominay is one of the only players who can hold their head high from last weekend's massacre loss to Liverpool. His good performance showed in his score, and he was very unlucky not to get an assist after laying it on a plate for Cavani. McTominay should see another score of at least 6+ but his threat from set-pieces and Spurs' questionable defenders makes him a solid MID4 this week.

MID: Stuart Armstrong

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Watford (Away)

Rostered: 39%

Points Last Gameweek: 5

ProspectsArmstrong could finally make his return to the Saints XI against Watford. Armstrong has been a decent fantasy option over the last few seasons, and in deeper leagues could offer MID3/4 value. Don't expect him to play the full 90 but he could be productive enough to give you a score within the 7-10 point range with the potential for a return against a leaky Watford defence.

FWD: Josh King

Team: Watford

Opponent: Southampton (Home)

Rostered: 56%

Points Last Gameweek: 39

ProspectsKing is fresh off one of his best ever EPL performances, having scored a hattrick against his former club Everton. King has always been a decent Fantrax option and should be in good spirits before this gameweek. I wouldn't be surprised to see King get another return this weekend.

FWD: Sergi Canos

Team: Brentford

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 39%

Points Last Gameweek: 5

ProspectsCanos has disappointed fantasy managers who drafted him this summer. He was always going to struggle to replicate his Championship numbers in the EPL. This week I do like him as a FWD3 punt considering the very friendly matchup Brentford have. Canos will be looking to continue some form after his goal against Stoke in midweek. Nick Pope isn't having a good season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Canos get on the scoresheet or provide an assist.
