Fantasy EPL Gameweek 15 Perfect XI

So, what is Perfect XI? Similar to Official Fantasy Premier League game, all managers have full access to the entire player pool each week, meaning multiple teams within the league could be completely identical. The main departures from OFPL are the Fantrax Default Scoring, unlimited transfers each week, no budget/salary cap, and live lineup changes available. This means that each week you can select a dream team of Fantrax assets who you think will score the most points on a given gameweek, and have the added bonus of being able to see the real life lineups before your players lock in. Magic.


Check out our Perfect XI tips below. These are our recommendations for the best eleven players this weekend! Picks are now accompanied by our weekly projections, which our Inner Circle members can exclusively access. Due to the tight scheduling, these will be a bit abridged for a couple weeks.



GK: Aaron Ramsdale

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Everton (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: ~8 (GK projections to come)


Ramsdale has a 37% chance of keeping a clean sheet and has also made 5 or more saves in the last game. Despite conceding 3 to United last week he still scored 10 fantasy points. Nice floor and upside. We're gonna pick him until he fails us.

Pivot: Ederson


DEF: Trent Alexander Arnold

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: Wolves (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.8


Once again, the best scoring fantasy defender in the game, averaging an impressive 19 points a game, don't overthink this one. This week, vs Wolves, Trent has a 48% chance of keeping a clean sheet, 33% chance of assisting, and 13% chance of scoring .

Pivot: Konstantinos Tsimikas/Andy Robertson


DEF: Joao Cancelo

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Watford (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 15.8


Like the aforementioned Liverpool RB, it's hard to bench Cancelo. He scores phenomenally well offensively, has the 2nd most points of any Fantrax defender, and has a 56% chance of keeping a clean sheet, 22% chance of assisting and 15% chance of scoring. If he doesn't start I'd likely go straight to Zinchenko or a second Liverpool fullback.

Pivot: Oleksandr Zinchenko



DEF: Reece James

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: West Ham (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.0


Once again we're back to the basics: Trent, Cancelo, and at least one Chelsea WB for our Perfect XI defenders. James has been putting up ridiculous numbers almost every time he starts. This week he has a 44% chance of a clean sheet, 20% of an assist, and 13% of a goal.

Pivot: Marcos Alonso/Sergio Reguilon



MID: Jack Grealish/Phil Foden

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Watford (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 17.2/16.1


This is a Man City week. There's no way around it against a Watford side that have been giving up goals for fun. City should score multiple here. Grealish and Foden were both back in the squad during the midweek and pretty likely to start in GW15. Grealish has a 36% chance of scoring and a 36% chance of assisting. Foden's odds are similar with a 44% chance of scoring and 33% assisting.


Pivot: Bernardo Silva


MID: Kevin De Bruyne/Ilkay Gundogan

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Watford (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 16.8/13.2


Read above for context, but both these guys are back fit and at least 1 will likely start. Both take set pieces and should be heavily involved in the attack against Watford. De Bruyne has odds of 38% to score and 43% to assist, and Gundogan has 36% and 21%


Pivot: Mason Mount



MID: Raphinha

Team: Leeds

Opponent: Brentford (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 12.7


Raph tried a lot last week and not much came off due to some great defending from Tyrick Mitchell. Still he got a late penalty and salvaged 15 points. This week he's up against the recently defensively-suspect Bees. On set pieces, 30% chance to score, 27% chance to assist, and will see plenty of the ball


Pivot: Lucas Moura


MID: Bruno Fernandes

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 12.7


Bruno's back scoring and we're back to picking him. Let's hope Rangnick further invigorates the offense. Fernandes has 34% goal odds and 31% assist odds.

Pivot: Callum Hudson-Odoi



FWD: Mohamed Salah

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: West Ham (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 16.3


Salah is the best player in the Premier League right now, the highest scoring player in Fantrax, and has a 54% chance of scoring (highest of the week) and a 25% chance of assisting. Just do it.

Pivot: Dioga Jota/Sadio Mane



FWD: Riyad Mahrez/Gabriel Jesus

Team: Manchester City

Opponent: Watford (Away)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.3/13.8


Mahrez played again last week (as did Jesus). When he starts he's golden and I'm picking him again this weekend. 42% chance of a goal and 31% chance of assisting. Has a great floor via set pieces. If he's not starting you can pivot to another City forward or midfielder in the best matchup of the weekend

Pivot: Raheem Sterling



FWD: Son Heung-Min

Team: Tottenham

Opponent: Norwich (Home)

Projected Fantasy Points: 14.1


Spurs have shown some signs of life in recent weeks, particularly Son who scored 17.5 last week with a goal. This week he faces one of the worst teams in the league in Dean Smith's Canaries. He has 49% goal odds and 30% assist odds.

Pivot: Harry Kane/Ivan Toney
