Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Our Gameweek 11 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 11 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: Alex McCarthy

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Aston Villa (Home)

Rostered: 25%

Points Last Gameweek: 19

ProspectsMcCarthy has had a decent season for the Saints, and could get another clean sheet against the inconsistent Villa attack. Aston Villa hasn't been the same since Grealish left, and they are still figuring out their best XI. McCarthy could easily see another 15+ score this weekend.

DEF: Joel Veltman

Team: Brighton

Opponent: Newcastle (Home)

Rostered: 34%

Points Last Gameweek: 3

Prospects: Veltman should be in the XI for the match vs. Newcastle. Brighton have been a decent defensive team this season, so a clean sheet vs. Newcastle wouldn't surprise me at all. Veltman as well offers a threat from set plays giving him added upside.

DEF: Nuno Tavares

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 19%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.75

ProspectsTavares has performed really well in his starts for Arsenal, but the issue is whether he will be given another one with Tierney fit and back? If he does, he has DEF1 upside against Watford this weekend. Tavares will surely give Arteta a selection headache in the future, and will. be pushing to lock down a starting role in GW11.

DEF: Ben Davies

Team: Tottenham

Opponent: Everton (Away)

Rostered: 3%

Points Last Gameweek: -3

Prospects: Davies got the start in a very strong Tottenham lineup in the Conference League and should retain his spot against Everton this weekend. Everton are a very hit or miss team, but Conte will be looking to keep a clean sheet in his first Premier League game with Spurs. Davies in a back 3 is a decent bet to score 4-6 ghost points with the upside of a clean sheet.

DEF: Kourtney Hause

Team: Aston Villa

Opponent: Southampton (Away)

Rostered: 7%

Points Last Gameweek: 4.5

ProspectsHause is probably getting another start with Konsa suspended. Hause is a monster in the air, and a huge threat from set pieces. Despite conceding 4 goals last gameweek he still managed a scored of 4.5. Assuming Villa don't concede 4 goals again he could be on for a double digit outing.

MID: Christian Norgaard

Team: West Ham United

Opponent: Norwich (Home)

Rostered: 49%

Points Last Gameweek: 14

ProspectsNorgaard is making a case to become a set and forget MID4, and has a great matchup this weekend. He offers a very solid floor, and could even see another attacking return this weekend against a leaky Norwich defence. Norgaard should be rostered in all 10+ team leagues especially ahead of this weekend.

MID: Ademola Lookman

Team: Leicester City

Opponent: Leeds (Away)

Rostered: 30%

Points Last Gameweek: 4

ProspectsLookman came on at half time against Arsenal, and could get a start vs. Leeds this weekend if Rodgers opts for a switch to a 1 up top with wingers flanking. I will back any attacker vs. the awful Leeds defence, and if Lookman starts he has MID2 upside this gameweek.

MID: Enock Mwepu

Team: Brighton

Opponent: Newcastle (Home)

Rostered: 11%

Points Last Gameweek: 18

ProspectsMwepu opened his account against Liverpool last weekend and likely should be rewarded with another start. It remains to be seen how good of a fantasy asset Mwepu will be but he is worth a punt this weekend. Brighton attack should have some confidence after putting two past Liverpool and coming up against a leaky Newcastle defence who really look lost.

MID: Jonjo Shelvey

Team: Newcastle United

Opponent: Brighton (Away)

Rostered: 5%

Points Last Gameweek: 2

ProspectsShelvey is the punt of the week, assuming he will be in the XI. Shelvey will bring some creativity to a team that is in desperate need of it, outside of Saint-Maximin. If he gets the start he is worth a punt as he could provide decent MID4 value this season.

FWD: Alexandre Lacazette

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 59%

Points Last Gameweek: 2

Prospects: After back to back wins, Lacazette should continue in the XI this weekend against Watford. Although he keeps getting hooked early, Lacazette will be keen to get back on the score sheet at the Emirates. Arsenal should win this one comfortably, and Lacazette could have his yearly 30+ performance here.

FWD: Sergi Canos

Team: Brentford

Opponent: Norwich (Home)

Rostered: 41%

Points Last Gameweek: 6

ProspectsCanos has done literally nothing since his opening day goal vs. Arsenal. What better matchup to hit some form than against Norwich? In this matchup he should offer a decent floor of 5-6 points with the upside of 15+ should he get a return. Brentford will be hungry to make amends after that shock defeat to Burnley last weekend, so expect them to win this one.
