Our Gameweek 25 Sleepers / 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 25 Sleepers
For this section, we use the % rostered stat 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! As we're on a short week, this list is condensed compared to a normal Sleepers XI. Forgive me!
GK: Vicente Guaita
Team: Crystal Palace
Points Last Gameweek:
Prospects: First, check and see if Robert Sanchez is on your waiver wire. If not, it's time to revert back to your second or third or maybe even fourth favorite Spanish Premier League goalkeeper. It remains almost impossible to find a keeper who is 40% rostered or less, so last week's sleeper will have to suffice for this week as well. The fact remains, though, that the upcoming fixtures for Palace are drool-inducing. You're playing the odds for a clean sheet, but at the goalkeeper position, that's often the most we can hope for unless you've got Sa or Ramsdale as a set-and-forget.
DEF: Lewis Dunk
Opponent: @WAT, @MU
Points Last Gameweek: N/A (blank)
Prospects: This will be quick. He plays a double gameweek and his ghost points per start (gPPS) (7.4) are exactly the same as his mean PPS. Combine that with only a 29% reliance on clean sheets for his fantasy point production, and he should be an immediate consideration for this upcoming week.
DEF: Calum Chambers/Kourtney Hause
Team: Aston Villa
Rostered: 3% (both)
Points Last Gameweek: N/A
Prospects: Ironically, both of these players have traditionally scored better as fantasy assets than Konsa. So, if you're stuck between a rock and a hard place, you could do worse than either of these lads vs Newcastle.
MID: Curtis Jones/Harvey Elliot
Points Last Gameweek: 8/3
Prospects: One of these gents will start. Whomever it is will offer value as a streamer. Elliot may actually get the call-up, as Klopp is likely to save his studs for UCL midweek. This also brings Tsimikas and Konate into the picture if you'd like another potential flyer at DEF. Against Burnley, the opportunity for points is there.
MID: Stu Armstrong
Points Last Gameweek: 10
Prospects: I'm very skeptical about this one. However, Big Stu appears to have retaken his spot in the XI along with his propensity to score points, even in the absence of attacking returns. His last two opponents have been no slouches (MCI, TOT) and he's mustered a baseline of 5.5 in both. MU have struggled (to be kind) and may continue to do so. This recipe may just call for a heaping scoop of Stu.
FWD: Rodrigo Moreno
Points Last Gameweek: 22.5
Prospects: IF (and you won't know until lineups) he's made his way back into the XI, this guy has been a sneaky source for ghost points. Against an Everton team that is still shaky at the back, I like his chances to make a few Toffees look foolish and rack up a few counting stats.
FWD: Bryan Mbeumo
Points Last Gameweek: 1 (Played 27 Minutes After Having COVID)
Prospects: Here's a punt for you: Mbeumo was decent before getting The Virus, providing a low, but dependable baseline. Now, Toney looks to be out yet again with the calf issue. Even if not, Mbeumo should deputize. Against a struggling Palace team, it's hard not to like him for a couple of shots on target and some additional ghosts.
