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 11
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.
Friday 20:00 BST
SOU vs AVL
Projected Points: 10.7
It has been a very difficult season for arguably the most talented player in the current Southampton set-up. We are in mid-November and Armstrong has not started a Premier League game. His talent undoubted, his ability unquestioned, his misfortune was getting back from injury at the exact moment his team started to click and deliver good results and good performances. It is possible, however, that Hasenhüttl has finally seen enough from him in training to give him a run out in the last game before the next International Break. Although unconventional when deciding on streamers to take the first opportunity, but if Armstrong is in fact in the first team, your streaming for the GW should end before it even began.
Honourable Mentions: Broja (PP: 10.3), Hause (PP: 9.6),
Saturday 12:30 BST
MUN vs MCI
Team: Man City
Projected Points: 8.3
It seems, that Joao Cancelo is immune to Pep Roulette. There, I said it. I hopefully jinxed it and Zinchenko finally gets a start in the Manchester Derby. Do not get put off by the big-name opposition, Zinchenko is only a defender in category, he sneaks forward at every opportunity and tries the defense splitting killer ball often.
Honourable Mentions: McTominay (PP: 7.1), Fernandinho (PP: 8.0)
Saturday 15:00 BST
CHE vs BUR, CRY vs WOL, BRF vs NOR
Projected Points: 11.9
It is highly likely that Vitaly Janelt will finally be healthy enough to start this weekend, therefore, relegating Jensen back to a bench role. However, if that is not the case, a set-piece taker against Norwich is ALWAYS a must start. Jensen is no different.
Team: Crystal Palace
Projected Points: 9.1
This article is all about left-field shouts, last-minute additions to lineups and so on. I will also rarely miss an opportunity to big up my man, Jeff. Schlupp really only has a chance to start if a last-minute injury disrupts this otherwise well oiled Palace machine. If this happens, I would gladly start him ahead of players you have on your roster who are usually steady yet unconvincing performers.
Honourable Mentions: Barkley (PP: 11.7), Zanka (PP: 9.6), Rashica (PP: 8.4), Sarr (PP: 9.8),
Saturday 17:30 BST
BHA vs NEW
Alexis Mac Allister
Projected Points: 10.3
Another personal favourite player of mine, the Scottish sounding Argentine has been contributing with an attacking return in most of his substitute appearances for Brighton. Even so, Mac Allister is unlikely to get a spot in the starting XI as Potter has an embarrassment of riches to choose from when it comes to his midfield. If he starts, he is very likely to bet a double-digit return.
Honourable Mentions: Veltman (PP: 10.9), Lallana (PP: 7.2), Shelvey (PP: 7.2)
Sunday 14:00 BST
EVE vs TOT, LEE vs LEI, ARS vs WAT
Projected Points: 9.1
Emerson Royal stole the show in Conte's first match yesterday against Vitesse. He was everywhere, the life blood of every attack. However, that is most likely down to Conte's famous 352 system that could even make Victor Moses a relevant fantasy asset. Doherty being 30% rostered is most likely based on the expectation that he will be given a chance to compete for the RWB spot, rather than losing out straight away to the former Barcelona Brazilian. If this happens, Doherty is a definite add. Most likely the Streamer of the Week.
Honourable Mentions: Tavares (PP: 11.8), Lookman (PP: 11.5), Martinelli (PP: 9.5)
Sunday 16:30 BST
WHU vs LIV
I would advise against leaving it until the last game to stream a starting spot because pickings will be slim.
Projected Points: 7.3
The Ox started and played very well against Atletico Madrid in the mid-week Champions League tie. The Liverpool midfield injury crisis may be his chance to prove his worth to the team after 2 horrible injury-ravaged seasons.
Honourable Mentions: Tsimikas (PP: 11.8), Jones (PP: 7.5)
Players to pick up with a view to future GWs if your streaming needs are already fulfilled and you still have a free spot on your roster.
