Stream your way all the way through a gameweek is one of the best and most important features of Draft Premier League. Keeping an extra spot open to be able to pick up a player who has a chance to score big could make or break your matchup. Every week we will go through the slate of matches and highlight players who are most likely available as free agent pickups but also have the chance to score extremely well if given the chance in the starting XI.
Struggling to find an open spot on your roster to make the most of all this advice? Try executing an unbalanced trade where you give away more players than you receive.
Stream Your Way Through Gameweek 10
A fan favourite segment on the Key Pass Collective is taking on a new form for the 2021/22 season. Tottiandor will highlight players likely available during the upcoming gameweek (under 45% ownership), with extremely high upside, who should definitely be started in DraftPL if given the nod by their respective managers. Accompanying our player selections, we have included projected fantasy points (abbreviated as PP) courtesy of our Inner Circle exclusive Weekly Projections.
Saturday 12:30 BST
LEI vs ARS
Projected Points: 10.8
There is not a large chance that Lookman did enough in the midweek cup game to earn himself a spot for the weekend, but he is still definitely one to monitor. Probably available in most leagues, if he makes it into the XI he should perform well against an Arsenal D missing Tierney and maybe Ben White.
Honourable Mentions: Perez (PP: 10), Chambers (PP: 9.4)
Saturday 15:00 BST
WAT vs SOU, LIV vs BHA, NEW vs CHE, MCI vs CRY, BUR vs BRF
Projected Points: 11.4
This week's TDS feature of the week, the young Colombian has performed well under Ranieri. The new manager bump is well and truly happening after the 5-2 drubbing of Everton last week and in Dennis's absence through suspension, Cucho's spot is nailed for this week. Last week, he even took some set pieces (corners) but those might go away on Danny Rose's return.
Projected Points: 8.5
JWP is back for Southampton, which should give them a boost in all areas. KWP, although not particularly likely to feature, unfortunately, is one of the top streaming options this weekend if he does in fact does make the team and you are in need of a defender. He played well in the midweek, and could oust one of the other wide backs for a spot.
Honourable Mentions: Jensen (PP: 12.3), Collins (PP: 10), Barkley (PP: 10.9), Dowell (PP: 10.9), Zinchenko (PP: 11.7)
Saturday 17:30 BST
TOT vs MUN
Team: Man Utd
Projected Points: 8.6
In all honesty, this game can go so many ways, so I would be hard-pressed to wholeheartedly recommend any player playing in it. I mentioned this in this week's start/sit article as well. The only guy I could feasibly recommend starting from a very uninspiring group, would be McTominay, who has virtually no ceiling but a decent floor. If your early game midfielders were unexpectedly benched and you need a warm body in midfield, Scotty is that body.
Honourable Mentions: none
Sunday 14:00 BST
NOR vs LEE
Projected Points: 10.4
Norwich haven't been able to find the perfect midfield combination to get to that elusive first win of the season so far. When playing, Rashica takes over some of the set piece duties and against fellow punching bags, Leeds, set pieces might give him an opportunity for an attacking return.
Honourable Mentions: Tzolis (PP: 9.1), Normann (PP: 9.1), Roberts (PP: 8.9)
Sunday 16:30 BST
AVL vs WHU
Team: Aston Villa
Projected Points: 9.2
Reported healthy by Smith, Traore could be the beneficiary of the shift to the 433 formation if Smith decides to shake up the personnel side as well. While Leon Bailey is likely the better player and more likely to start, Smith has repeatedly said he'll be cautious giving him too many minutes after no preseason, thus making Traore's path to the XI a little easier. A reliable scorer when he plays, this could be his audition to make one of the front 3 spots his own.
Honourable Mentions: El Ghazi (PP: 9.3), Dawson (PP: 8.4)
Monday 20:00 BST
WOL vs EVE
I would advise against leaving it until the last game to stream a starting spot because pickings will be slim.
Projected Points: 7.4
With Marcal out, the young Frenchman's spot seems to be safe for at least one more week. Relentlessly running up and down the flank, he not only offers CS potential against a reeling Everton side, he routinely finds himself in positions where he is able to influence the attack.
Honourable Mentions: Silva (PP: 9.7), Boly (PP: 7.5),
