Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 33 Sleepers XI

Our Gameweek 33 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 in the sophisticated and statistics based Fantrax Scoring System!

Fantasy EPL Gameweek 33 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: Martin Dubravka

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Leicester (Home), Crystal Palace (Home)

Rostered: 16%

Points Last Gameweek: 15

ProspectsDubravka should be available in most leagues and has a decent chance of a 10+ score this week with or without a clean sheet. Newcastle are looking much better in recent weeks, and bar the game vs. Spurs their defence has improved greatly. The Newcastle keeper is worth a punt in a double gameweek with both matches at home.

DEF: Jan Bednarek

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Arsenal (Home), Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 33%

Points Last Gameweek: -8.25

Prospects: Bednarek and Southampton had a game to forget in the 6-0 loss vs. Chelsea. They will be looking to bounce back against an Arsenal team struggling to get a win in recent weeks and have a favorable matchup in the second leg against relegation contenders Burnley. Bednarek should score well this gameweek despite the recent struggles.

DEF: Alex Telles

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Norwich (Home), Liverpool (Away)

Rostered: 57%

Points Last Gameweek: 9.5

Prospects: With Shaw out for the season, Telles is a lock for the DGW. He takes his fair share of set pieces and could see a 15+ score against Norwich, which should compensate for any potential negatives v Liverpool in the second game of the DGW. In short, Telles could be United's highest scoring defender this GW and is worth a start.

DEF: James Justin

Team: Leicester City

Opponent: Newcastle (Away), Everton (Away)

Rostered: 33%

Points Last Gameweek: 4.75

ProspectsJustin still hasn't hit the heights of last season. But he seems to be first choice for Rodgers, and should see two starts, barring any injuries. He is worth a start as a DEF2; if he doesn't start the first game, look to Ricardo as an alternative. (NOTE THAT LEICESTER PLAY IN THE EUROPEAN CONFERENCE LEAGUE MID-WEEK AND COULD ROTATE OVER THE WEEKEND).

DEF: Dan Burn

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Leicester (Home), Crystal Palace (Home)

Rostered: 39%

Points Last Gameweek: 16

ProspectsBurn has been great for Newcastle fantasy-wise, and should see another double digit score this gameweek. There is every chance Burn could score 20+ without a clean sheet this gameweek, giving him DEF1 upside.

MID: Miguel Almiron

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Leicester (Home), Crystal Palace (Home)

Rostered: 13%

Points Last Gameweek: 3

Prospects: All the credit for this punt goes to @DraftLad. Almiron should see two starts this gameweek, and could see even more of an attacking role with Fraser most likely out with injury. While he hasn't quite scored well recently, he is worth a start as he looks to get his first goal of the season.

MID: Stuart Armstrong

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Arsenal (Home), Burnley (away)

Rostered: 43%

Points Last Gameweek: 4

ProspectsArmstrong is a key man in this Saints team, and they will be looking to him to help get some wins in this DGW. Armstrong should see over 150 minutes, and always has the potential to pop up with a goal or assist. His ghost points are somewhat inconsistent, but a score of 10+ is definitely not out of the question here.

MID: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Team: Leicester City

Opponent: Newcastle (Away), Everton (Away)

Rostered: 29%

Points Last Gameweek: 20.5

ProspectsDewsbury-Hall is really becoming a key member for Leicester City, and he will look to continue his good run of form in this somewhat friendly gameweek. KDH racks up points just through his work rate and hustle, and that alone should see him offer MID3 value.

MID: Bruno Guimaraes

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Leicester (Home), Crystal Palace (Home)

Rostered: 37%

Points Last Gameweek: 8.5

ProspectsGuimaraes took sometime to get into the Newcastle starting XI but seems to have finally found his footing on Tyneside. He is a MID4 with MID3 upside this gameweek, and will be key to Newcastle continuing to pick up points and fully confirm their Premier League safety.

FWD: Nicolas Pepe

Team: Arsenal

Opponent: Southampton (Away), Chelsea (Away)

Rostered: 37%

Points Last Gameweek: 0.5

ProspectsPepe time could be upon us after 2 consecutive losses for Arsenal and Smith-Rowe potentially out injured. Arteta may look to shake up an attack that has only scored two goals in their last four games, and that should start with Pepe. He has FWD1 upside and a good performance v Southampton v see him get two consecutive starts this gameweek.

FWD: Armando Broja

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Arsenal (Home), Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 43%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

ProspectsBroja was ineligible to play against Chelsea but surely walks right back into the XI for the double gameweek. He will be looking to get back amongst the goals after not scoring since early February. He is still the first choice striker for the Saints, but will need to start finding the back of the net quickly. There is every chance he manages an attacking return in one of these games against two teams who have been poor defensively in recent history.
