Fantasy EPL Gameweek 34 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 United

Opponent: Norwich (Away)

Rostered: 36%

Points Last Gameweek: 14

ProspectsDubravka could be set for back-to-back clean sheets in this friendly encounter against Norwich. Despite Norwich putting 2 past United, I do like Newcastle's chances for a clean sheet in this game. They have improved drastically as a defensive unit, and that is a big reason they were able to escape relegation.


DEF: Willy Boly

Team: Wolves

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 10%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

Prospects: Wolves had the week off, but will look to get a win against a tired Burnley team. Boly should get the start and could win a decent amount of aerials. Add in a clean sheet and he has the potential to score 15+ points this gameweek. Boly has DEF2 value in this matchup.


DEF: Diogo Dalot

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Arsenal (Away) + Chelsea (Home)

Rostered: 42%

Points Last Gameweek: 7.25

Prospects: Seems dangerous to recommend United defenders these days, but Dalot still scores very solid ghost points, and should be considered in this double gameweek. United have a tough couple of matches, but both Arsenal and Chelsea have had very inconsistent results recently, so there is hope for a decent score from Dalot.


DEF: Dan Burn

Team: Newcastle United

Opponent: Norwich (Away)

Rostered: 57%

Points Last Gameweek: 22.75

Prospects: Burn is one of the main reasons for this Newcastle revival. The big center back will be looking for another clean sheet against relegation bound Norwich, and could even pop up with a return from a set piece. Burn seems to just win everything and anything that comes to him in the air and has the potential for DEF1 upside this weekend.


DEF: Emerson Royal

Team: Tottenham

Opponent: Brentford (Away)

Rostered: 58%

Points Last Gameweek: 0.25

Prospects: Spurs shockingly lost last week to Brighton, but will be looking to get back to winning way this weekend. Emerson is probably a lock to start with Doherty out for the season, and will be looking to improve on his poor performance last week. There is every chance he gets himself with a random attacking return or a 20+ score without one. If he is available in your league he is a must start for me.

MID: Jesse Lingard

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Arsenal (Away) + Chelsea (Home)

Rostered: 46%

Points Last Gameweek: 17.5

Prospects: Pogba will miss the double gameweek, so Lingard could see another 100+ minute week. As we know Lingard scores very well when he starts, and should get the nod against Arsenal. Lingard was one of the few bright spots in the horrible defeat to Liverpool with his energy in midfield. He is a MID3 this week.


MID: Manuel Lanzini

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Chelsea (Away)

Rostered: 35%

Points Last Gameweek: 13

ProspectsLanzini got himself an assist after a poor run of form last week. Despite the tough matchup, I still think Lanzini can score well given Chelsea's defensive struggles as of late. We all know the Argentinean can produce the spectacular against anyone, so he is worth a start as your MID5 this week.


MID: Miguel Almiron

Team: Newcastle United

Opponent: Norwich (Away)

Rostered: 23%

Points Last Gameweek: 23.5

ProspectsAlmiron scored his first goal of the season to win the game for Newcastle against Crystal Palace. He will be looking to continue this form in the match vs. Norwich. Howe seems to be getting the best out of Almiron in his last few matches, and he will be hoping to finish the season strong. Almiron has MID3 upside this week.


MID: Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: West Ham (Home) + Manchester United (Away)

Rostered: 17%

Points Last Gameweek: 5.5

Prospects: Despite the recent defeat against Arsenal, there is a good chance Loftus-Cheek gets at least 120 minutes this week. Kovacic is out with an injury, Kante probably can't start back to back games, and Jorginho is just not in Tuchel's good books right now. Loftus-Cheek usually has a solid floor and some attacking upside.


FWD: Anthony Elanga

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Arsenal (Away) + Chelsea (Home)

Rostered: 35%

Points Last Gameweek: 27.5

ProspectsElanga should get 2 starts this week, with Rashford failing to impress once again. Elanga is a very inconsistent scorer, but should be started as a FWD2/3 given the double gameweek. Both Arsenal and Chelsea have leaky defences, and Elanga will be looking to get another attacking return this gameweek.


FWD: Odsonne Edouard

Team: Crystal Palace

Opponent: Leeds (Home)

Rostered: 31%

Points Last Gameweek: 12.5

ProspectsEdouard was all over the place in the loss to Newcastle, but should be rewarded with another start. Leeds are a much friendly matchup, and Edouard will be looking to score his first goal since January. He had a few chances in the loss to Newcastle, but also did a great job setting up his teammates who could not finish their chances. With the forward pool very shallow Edouard is definitely worth an add.
