Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI

Updated: May 13

Our Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI 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'll be focusing on players that will bring us not only attacking returns or clean sheets, but also those players that score "ghost points" on the sophisticated and statistics based Fantrax Scoring System!


Fantasy EPL Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI

For this article, 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: Rui Patricio

Team: Wolves

Opponent: Sheffield United (Home)

Rostered: 55%

Points Last Gameweek: 14

Prospects: I'm picking Rui Patricio for my Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI based on one resource. Our amazing Fixture Difficulty Tracker. If you haven't checked it out yet, its a unique resource produced by Drafterthoughts which provides a fixture difficulty rating based on points per 90 against data for each position. Patricio faces Sheffield United this weekend, who on average give up 8.3 points to the goalkeeper who faces their blunt attack. Wolves' goalkeeper and defenders have the best run of fixtures for the next six gamweeeks as per the tracker!


DEF: Nat Phillips

Team: Liverpool

Opponent: Leeds (Away)

Rostered: 43%

Points Last Gameweek: 19.75

Prospects: I backed Nat Phillips last week and he gained an incredible score of 19.75 without an attacking return or clean sheet. I'm going back for more this week as Liverpool look to have finally sorted their defence out, with Phillips and Kabak forming a decent understanding. They gained clean sheets in Gameweek 29 and 30, as well as against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. This weekend Phillips will be up against Leeds, and I fancy him for another good score.


DEF: Arthur Masuaku

Team: West Ham United

Opponent: Newcastle (Away)

Rostered: 42%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

Prospects: Another defender I backed last week was Arthur Masuaku but he gained a horrible score of 0 during the 3-2 victory over Leicester! Lets ignore that for now though because West Ham are on great form, and any attacking asset from Moyes' side needs to be owned. Masuaku is playing at left wing-back and does get forward well. The DR Congo international played the full 90 minutes last game, and faces Newcastle this weekend. Get hold of him if you can.. Totti highlighted him in the Trade Advice article earlier this week!


DEF: Calum Chambers

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Fulham (Home)

Rostered: 18%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.25

ProspectsCalum Chambers is a decent scorer in Fantrax, and now that he's started three games in a row I'm confident enough to start him in my Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI. The Englishman has gained scores of 13.5 and 12.25 during his last three games, which proves to us once again that he does have potential in this format of Fantasy EPL. Chambers performed really well in Fantrax a couple of years ago whilst on loan to his Gameweek 32 opponents Fulham, and I'm backing him to perform well during the season run-in. If Chambers continues to start for Arsenal, he's a good pick-up.


DEF: Rayan Ait-Nouri

Team: Wolves

Opponent: Sheffield United (Home)

Rostered: 10%

Points Last Gameweek: 13.5

Prospects: I'm doubling up on the Wolves backline this week, due to the aforementioned Fixture Difficulty Tracker resource. The defender to get the nod is Rayan Ait-Nouri after his return to the side due to the unfortunate injury to teammate Jonny. The young Frenchman looks set for an extended period in the team with Marcal also out injured. Ait-Nouri gained 13.5 points against Fulham in Gameweek 31, and I think he'll post a similar score this weekend. He even took a few set pieces last week, which only adds to his promise. Totti also backed him in his Waiver Wire article over on Fantrax HQ earlier this week.

MID: Gabriel Martinelli

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Fulham (Home)

Rostered: 38%

Points Last Gameweek: 16.5

Prospects: Could Gabriel Martinelli finally make his mark this season...? Potentially! The Brazilian youngster has had a terrible time with injuries this campaign, but he started in Gameweek 31 and scored 16.5 points. With Arsenal now potentially favouring the Europa League, I think Martinelli will see more Premier League minutes. He's a really talented young footballer, and I'm hoping he is given the opportunity to perform well over the next few weeks.


MID: Okay Yokuslu

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Leicester (Away)

Rostered: 16%

Points Last Gameweek: 17

Prospects: If you were wondering when I was going to feature West Brom players in the Gameweek 32 Sleepers article, fear not. A bunch of them are coming up! I'll start things off with Okay Yokuslu, who was backed heavily last week across various Draft Society articles. The Turkish midfielder once again scored well, this time with 17 points during the 3-0 romp over Southampton. The Baggies face Leicester this week, but given their form I'm happy to continue to back their assets. Yokuslu is a dependable player who also has attacking potential.


MID: Jacob Murphy

Team: Newcastle United

Opponent: West Ham United (Home)

Rostered: 8%

Points Last Gameweek: 19

Prospects: Now we're really getting into 'punt' territory. Jacob Murphy has scored really well during his last two outings, but backing a Newcastle player who isn't Saint-Maximin has to be classed as a punt. I'm struggling to see their appeal despite beating Burnley at the weekend. But at this stage of the season its often hard to find low ownership gems. Therefore, Murphy gets the nod ahead of the game against West Ham. The former Norwich City midfielder has been playing as a right wing-back, and has been pretty successful the last two games. Murphy thrives on confidence, and right now he has it. Shelvey (54% ownership) is also worth a punt if you like backing more established players.


MID: Matt Phillips

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Leicester (Away)

Rostered: 4%

Points Last Gameweek: 24

Prospects: I told you there would be more West Brom players tipped! This time Matt Phillips enters my Sleepers XI after a strong performance against Southampton. The Scottish international gained 24 points after getting on the score sheet in that game. I picked him up late in the gameweek in one of my leagues as West Brom players are amazingly just worth a punt at the moment. Even more so after their latest victory. Yokuslu is likely to be taken in competitive leagues, so look to Phillips if you need a more obscure pick-up.


FWD: Callum Hudson-Odoi

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: Brighton (Home)

Rostered: 52%

Points Last Gameweek: 19.5

ProspectsCallum Hudson-Odoi gained a rare start in Gameweek 31 and stormed to 19.5 points against a poor Crystal Palace side. Reece James started in the Champions League on Tuesday, and I would expect him to start in the FA Cup game against Manchester City this weekend too. Therefore, the Premier League fixture against Brighton on Tuesday may provide Hudson-Odoi with another chance to impress at right wing-back. Despite the youngster being classified as a forward on Fantrax, he's 100% worth adding to your roster.


FWD: Mbaye Diagne

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Leicester (Away)

Rostered: 32%

Points Last Gameweek: 9.5

Prospects: Finishing off my Gameweek 32 Sleepers XI article once again is Mbaye Diagne. The West Brom forward is an absolute unit, and is providing defenders with plenty to think about! The Senegalese international gained another attacking return last week, and I fancy him for more this weekend. Leicester aren't on great form, and I think they are there for the taking. Diagne scores fairly well for ghost points too.
