Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 20 Sleepers XI + Weekly Streamers

Updated: May 24, 2022

Our Gameweek 20 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 20 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!

The Leeds vs Liverpool and Wolves vs Watford games have already been postponed due to a COVID outbreak , but keep an eye out as other games may suffer a similar fate.

GK: Martin Dubravka

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Everton (Away)

Rostered: 14%

Points Last Gameweek: 2

Prospects: Newcastle need to start getting wins and clean sheets and what better opponent than COVID-ridden Everton. Dubravka has the ability to get ghost points as well as his team having a decent chance of a CS.

DEF: Arthur Masuaku

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 45%

Points Last Gameweek: 2,5

Prospects: He played well in the loss to Arsenal and got rewarded with plenty of ghost points, lesss impressive against Southampton, but 8.5 ghost points is no mean feat.. With Creswell still not back, he should have a good chance to continue deputising.

DEF: Cheikhou Kouyate

Team: Crystal Palace

Opponent: Norwich (Home)

Rostered: 43%

Points Last Gameweek: -1.25

Prospects: Kouyate is playing as an out of position "defender" in midfield and is getting busy. Norwich at home is always a decent fixture to target especially when you have a defensive midfielder who could get 6 points for a clean sheet.

DEF: Craig Dawson

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 30%

Points Last Gameweek: 17

Prospects: Mentioned in the WW article, Dawson is a pretty safe play this week. Good floor, potential clean sheet, potential attacking return combo is ideal to warrant him a place in the heart of the Sleeper's defence.

MID: Fernandinho

Team: Man City

Opponent: Brentford (Away)

Rostered: 16%

Points Last Gameweek: 11.5

Prospects: Rodri's absence will likely mean that the veteran Brazilian will continue to deputise. Whether it is an all-action defensive performance or a part in a goal-fest, Dinho always seems to be close to double digits.

MID: Manuel Lanzini

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 23%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.5

Prospects: A true Draft legend, the Argentinian seems to have, to my large surprise, taken Benrahma's spot in the starting lineup and has been performing admirably. He is also on penalties and some corners.

MID: Jeff Schlupp

Team: Crystal Palace

Opponent: Norwich (Home)

Rostered: 3%

Points Last Gameweek: 1.5

Prospects: Here comes the second player in the Palace stack against Norwich at home. Zaha's suspension and Edouard's waning form should result in a reshuffle by Vieira which could see Jeff line up in an attacking role. This is the season for Draft Legends in the Sleepers XI.

MID: Miguel Almirón

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Everton (Away)

Rostered: 17%

Points Last Gameweek: 2

Prospects: You can kinda see a trend here. Targetting Everton and Norwich usually pays off. And ASM's injury will most likely mean a cameo for the Paraguayan. He could take a few set pieces and offer the chance of an attacking return from open play as well.

MID: Naby Keita

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: Leicester (Away)

Rostered: 30%

Points Last Gameweek: 9

Prospects: Although the midfielders who had been out with COVID are reportedly back, it is unlcear whehter they'll be fit enough to feature against a Leicester side who have been beaten by a Liverpool B (maybe C) team in less than a week. Keita should be given the chance in an attacking role.

FWD: Edinson Cavani

Team: Man United

Opponent: Burnley (Home)

Rostered: 45%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.5

Prospects: The Uruguayan legend is like a fine Bordeaux. He doesn't age, he matures! He provided the spark last night to save face against lowly Newcastle and he did everything right to give him a chance to start against Burnley.

FWD: Maxwel Cornet

Team: Burnley

Opponent: Man United (Away)

Rostered: 58%

Points Last Gameweek: DNP

Prospects: Cornet should be back and ready to tear up the United D before he leaves Burnley in the mud again as he departs for AFCON in less than a week. He was dropped in plenty of leagues, so have a look on your WW.

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 25% 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.

Tuesday 15:00 GMT


Christos Tzolis- A decent ghost pointer, he has upside if he is in the lineup.

Jean-Philip Mateta - Could be given a rare start in a lineup reshuffle

Cucho Hernandez - The disappointment of his last performance is dificult to forget, but he should have plenty of opportunity to make it right this GW.

Pierre Lees-Melou - Given a more attacking role under Smith, he could provide the spark in a difficult to stream from Norwich team.

Tuesday 20:00 GMT


James Milner - He is a definite starter if you see him in the starting lineup. Tattoo this on your arm Memento style so we don't have to say it every week.

Marc Albrighton - Another veteran who could feature, Albie is always good for a high floor.

Wednesday 19:30 GMT


Ruben Loftus-Cheek - Chelsea's injury woes are starting to subside, but Kante is out again, so RLC could be back in in CM

Jakub Moder - Set Piece taker and general do-gooder in Gross' absence.

Wednesday 20:15 GMT


Cole Palmer - Young, exciting, English attacking talent. Wherelse would he be but the bench. If he isn't though... Oh man. Pick him up.

Nathan Aké - Brentford are in a funk, but honestly I still probably wouldn't play any City D who has a chance to score 0 ghosts. But you might be different.

Thursday 19:30 GMT


Alex Iwobi- I wouldn't expect him to light it up, but he could gently roll a few "shots" towards Dubravke for cheap 2 pointers, a la AEG.

Dwight Gayle- Exciting, not so much. Necessary? You bet. Decent chance of an attacking return from a 0% rostered layer.

Thursday 20:15 GMT


Jay Rodriguez - If Cornet is still out, the OG Jay-Rod could have a decent time against the Fridge.
