Our Gameweek 13 Sleepers XI / Streamers 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 have added Streamers who are structured based on kick-off times and are even less rostered than are Sleepers for even more differential value!
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 13 Sleepers XI
For this section, 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: Robert Sanchez
Opponent: Leeds (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 0
Prospects: After serving his suspension last week, Sanchez should be back in the starting XI this weekend. Leeds have become the top team to target for both attacking and defensive Sleepers and Streamers and, although they have shown signs of improvement in the last few fixtures, I am still expecting Sanchez to deliver his usual great point return.
DEF: Rayan Ait-Nouri
Opponent: Norwich (Away)
Points Last Gameweek: 20.5
Prospects: After his off-season performances, Ait-Nouri was very high on everyone's draft board, only to sit out the first two months of the campaign. After Marcal's injury, he was given the chance to impress and he did just that. With the Brazilian back, Ait-Nouri's spot might be at risk again, but he has surely done enough to warrant an extended run in the team.
DEF: Ben Davies
Opponent: Burnley (Away)
Points Last Gameweek: 4.5
Prospects: I am not super high on Conte's Spurs as I think there are much bigger problems with the squad than what a manager change can instantly fix. That said it is always a smart decision to trot out an aerially adept defender against the Wood-led Burnley attack.
DEF: Adam Webster
Opponent: Leeds (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 6.25
Prospects: Doubling down on the Brighton defense is definitely risky as they have not been their impressive self lately. That said, with Webster back in the team, he should continue to command the "alpha" role in defense.
DEF: Pontus Jansson
Opponent: Everton (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 0
Prospects: Everton have a whole host of injuries and suspensions to contend with and while there is light at the end of the tunnel, this weekend comes too soon for DCL, and probably Gray and Doucoure too. Jansson has been a steady performer who has the ability to pop up with attacking points as well from set pieces.
MID: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Opponent: Southampton (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 9
Prospects: The Ox has played more minutes in the last few games than in the previous 18 months and as the injury worries are behind him, he is growing in confidence with every second on the pitch. His direct style is one that has been missing from the Liverpool midfield for quite some time so Klopp will be glad he has another attacking piece to play with. In the unlikely chance that Oxlade-Chamberlain does not get the nod this weekend, I would consider keeping him on roster not only because he will feature heavily during the festive period. Also because he might get his chance to deputise in the front 3 when AFCON comes around, which would skyrocket his value.
MID: Marc Albrighton
Opponent: Watford (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 12.5
Prospects: Albrighton has always been a very high upside streamer, but he couldn't nail down a starting spot in the Leicester team since their title-winning season. With RiccyP out injured and struggling with form, Rodgers might give Albrighton an extended run at the wing-back spot. When playing, he takes a fair few set pieces, so he jumps up to the second Fox on my fantasy starting list after Vardy.
MID: Milot Rashica
Opponent: Wolves (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 3
Prospects: This Rashica recommendation might as well have been Billy Gilmour as both of them have played well in Smith's first game in charge and Norwich's second win of the season. The set piece picture is still not crystal clear in this new look Norwich team, but either midfielder could provide great value in the MID4 category.
MID: Michael Olise
Team: Crystal Palace
Opponent: Aston Villa (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 0.5
Prospects: I am trying to talk an Olise start into existence. He has looked assured and electric in his cameo appearances for Palace and surely deserves a start. If so, he could score big against a Villa side still figuring out life under a new manager. Also what a matchup of legendary midfielders on the bench as coaches!!
FWD: Alexandre Lacazette
Opponent: Newcastle (Home)
Points Last Gameweek: 6.5
Prospects: Projected to score the highest among under 60% rostered forwards who are likely to start, I couldn't leave out a personal favourite of mine, Lacazette. He has been playing well since getting into the first team, but he needs to start scoring to properly nail down his starting spot up top as Arteta might start rotating if Laca cannot find his scoring boots. That said, Newcastle under Howe haven't miraculously become decent, let alone good, overnight, so they are there for the taking.
Opponent: Arsenal (Away)
Points Last Gameweek: 25.5
Prospects: Everyone is talking about Sir Joe of Lintonshire. Well, we are. I touted his Brentford performances in the Ghost Point Hunters article and he looks to have a new lease on life in Howe's attacking system. Temper your expectations, but just like Newcastle themselves, Arsenal haven't had a stellar defense this season either. Maybe we are in for a 3-3 again.
Stream your Way Through the Gameweek
For this section, we use the % rostered from Fantrax. Our only rule is that each player we highlight is required to be rostered in 40% of leagues or below at the time of writing. These players, as opposed to the Sleepers highlighted above, are only worth "streaming" meaning that while the above XI all have their argument for being held mid- to long-term, the players highlighted below have much longer odds of starting this week or regularly, but offer a higher chance of high scoring point return.
Saturday 12:30 GMT
ARS vs NEW
Martin Odegaard - If Pepe is not playing, he will have set-piece monopoly.
Jacob Murphy - Historically high scoring streamer in a potential end-to-end match.
Saturday 15:00 GMT
LIV vs SOU, NOR vs WOL, CRY vs AVL
Todd Cantwell - Slowly coming back to full fitness, if Smith trusts him in a front 3, you could as well.
Anwar El Ghazi - Buendia was pants last week. I am intrigued by AEG under Stevie!
James Milner - Could be on some sets, worth a start either in mid of def.
Joao Moutinho - Very inconsistent this season, but it's Norwich...
Ashley Young - Gerrard had high praise for Young, if starting as a wing-back, I like him a lot.
Saturday 17:30 GMT
BHA vs LEE
Neal Mapuay - Well its Leeds...
Sunday 14:00 GMT
BRF vs EVE, MCI vs WHU, LEI vs WAT, BUR vs TOT
Joao Pedro - Sarr out could see Pedro or Cucho starting and I like either of them as a high upside streamer against a Leicester side who look devoid of confidence.
Davinson Sanchez - Was BAD against Mura. Ghosted out in the short cameo last weekend though, so vs Burnley, anything can happen.
