Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 29 Sleepers XI + Weekly Streamers

Updated: May 20

Our Gameweek 29 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 29 Sleepers XI

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!


GK: Robert Sanchez

Team: Brighton

Opponent: Liverpool (home), Tottenham (home)

Rostered: 36%

Points Last Gameweek: 3

Prospects: Robert Sanchez and the whole of Brighton have gone off the boil in recent weeks. So much so that I had to part ways with Sanchez in the league in which I had held him all season. Playing him in this tough double is definitely a gamble, but one worth taking, especially since Tottenham give up the fifth most points to opposition GKs.


DEF: Ben Davies

Team: Tottenham Hotspur

Opponent: Man Utd (away), Brighton (away)

Rostered: 36%

Points Last Gameweek: 12

Prospects: The only member of the Spurs defense who is under 60% rostered and thus qualifies as a sleeper. Davies has been solid but not stellar since he made the LCB spot his own under Conte. A decent double will give him a chance to hit the 20 mark without having to do anything spectacular.


DEF: Jonjoe Kenny

Team: Everton

Opponent: Wolves (home), Newcastle (home)

Rostered: 2%

Points Last Gameweek: -7.75

Prospects: This is the biggest gamble of the XI, but I am a huge fan of Jonjoe Kenny. His raw attacking talent is very exciting. And if Lampard can somehow sort out the defensive frailties and give him room to roam forward, he could well be a decent fantasy asset ROS. As for this week, he is going against Wolves and Newcastle, who are on an upward swing but still not prolific scorers.


DEF: Dan Burn

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Chelsea (away), Everton (away)

Rostered: 51%

Points Last Gameweek: 15.25

Prospects: Ride until the wheels fall off. Big Dan Burn has been an integral part of Newcastle's incredible rise in the table and he will continue to provide managers with solid points week in, week out. Do not be afraid of Chelsea in the first game. Newcastle will put up a decent fight but I doubt that they will concede more than 2.


DEF: Cedric Soares

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Leicester (home), Liverpool (home)

Rostered: 9%

Points Last Gameweek: 5.5

Prospects: It looks like Tomiyasu is still out, so Cedric should continue to ably deputise at RB. I do not expect Arsenal to keep a CS in either game (although they may v Leicester given arch nemesis Jamie Vardy is out), but Cedric has a decent floor given that he takes a fair few set pieces.


MID: Solly March

Team: Brighton

Opponent: Liverpool (home), Tottenham (home)

Rostered: 25%

Points Last Gameweek: 3

Prospects: Literally no one knows how Potter will set up the Brighton midfield in the first game, let alone the second. However, March is projected to come into the XI. And if he does, I would run him out as a MID4. Without Gross or MacAlister, he could get a share of the set pieces as well.


MID: Bruno Guimaraes

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Chelsea (away), Everton (away)

Rostered: 39%

Points Last Gameweek: 15

Prospects: I had already mentioned him in the Waivers article and said he would start 2 and play 160+ minutes. I still stand by my prediction, with the only caveat being that he came off in the last game with a cramp, so you need to monitor his progress. Otherwise, his full debut wondergoal should make managers very excited to start him this week and maybe hold ROS.


MID: Abdoulaye Doucoure

Team: Everton

Opponent: Wolves (home), Newcastle (home)

Rostered: 53%

Points Last Gameweek: 6

Prospects: One of the players we at the Draft Society were very sceptical about at the beginning of the season, he has slowly but surely regressed to your run of the mill defensive midfielder in Fantrax scoring. This makes him a perfect double gameweek starter. You will have realised by now that there is a pattern here. Defensive minded mids, with a decent floor, are ideal DGW material due to them being nailed on and likely to score around 15 in a DGW.


MID: Thomas Partey

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Leicester (home), Liverpool (home)

Rostered: 41%

Points Last Gameweek: 9.5

Prospects: Partey completes our defensive midfleider triumvirate. He has been ghosting like its Halloween recently (9.5 pts in each of his last 2 starts), which makes him an ever safer DGW start choice. Do not expect fireworks, but be visibly upset if he doesn't get you at least 12 points in these 2 games.


MID: Ryan Fraser

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Chelsea (away), Everton (away)

Rostered: 56%

Points Last Gameweek: 5.5

Prospects: What a few games Fraser has had recently. He has truly hit his old Bournemouth numbers recently. And a more defined role, accompanied by ASM's absence, has given him the perfect opportunity to be a DGW stud once again.


FWD: Anthony Gordon

Team: Everton

Opponent: Wolves (home), Newcastle (home)

Rostered: 48%

Points Last Gameweek: 11

Prospects: We have been singing Gordon's praises since Lampard's arrival and now is his time to shine and repay our faith in him. He has been passing the eye test with flying colours of late mostly due to his incredible work rate and determination. This double could really propel him to become a top top fantasy asset ROS. I will go out on a limb and say he will be in the top 5 scorers for the gameweek come next Friday.


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.


Saturday 12:30 GMT

BHA vs LIV (BHA vs TOT, ARS vs LIV)

Curtis Jones/Harvey Elliot - If either of the 2 youngsters gets the starting spot against Brighton, I'd be comfortable starting them here.


Saturday 15:00 GMT

BRF vs BUR

Better options are available surely.


Saturday 17:30 GMT

MUN vs TOT (BHA vs TOT)

Rodrigo Bentancur - If the holding mid is back healthy and starting, he is a great floor option to bolster your mid.


Sunday 14:00 GMT

CHE vs NEW, LEE vs NOR, EVE vs WOL, WHU vs AVL, SOU vs WAT, (EVE vs NEW)

Mykolenko/Lascelles - Both these defenders are coming back from injury but if back could start both.

Gelhardt - Rodrigo was hooked at the half and if Bamford is back and Gelhardt gets the nod next to him, that attack immediately gets more exciting.


Sunday 16:30 GMT

ARS vs LEI

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall - He seems to be a season keeper, so it is likely that he is already rostered in active leagues. He will get you a decent score.

Granit Xhaka - Test your adventurous nature by starting Xhaka and hoping for 180 minutes that he doesn't get injured or sent off. If he avoids these, he should get a decent score.


Monday 20:00 GMT

CRY vs MCI

Not many streamers are available for the last game of the GW. Try not relying on rotation players for this one... LOL it's City, everyone is a rotation threat.
