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 12
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 GMT
LEI vs CHE
Projected Points: 8.8
There aren't many streaming options when lineups are announced for traditionally successful teams. This is unfortunately the case for the Saturday early kickoff. Lookman is criminally under-rostered for the amazing upside he provides. Although it is going to be mighty difficult to break down this Chelsea defence, if Rodgers opts to play Vardy up top with Barnes and Lookman on either side, I would not be against taking a punt on either winger.
Honourable Mentions: Barkley (PP: 11.4), RLC (PP: 10.7), Ayoze (PP: 8.9)
Saturday 15:00 GMT
NEW vs BRF, BUR vs CRY, AVL vs BHA, WAT vs MUN, WOL vs WHU, NOR vs SOU
Team: Manchester United
Projected Points: 13.4
It looks like Shaw might have a question mark around his availability for this weekend and with rumours swirling that van de Beek may be given a chance, it might mean a total starting XI overhaul for United. Were it not for the injury scare, Shaw would still have to answer questions about his recent performances, so I would not be surprised to see Telles given a chance to turn things around. On set-pieces when playing, he is one of the top streaming options of the week.
Projected Points: 9.8
After a few disappointing displays by the Bees, there might be some changes to the starting XI and Ghoddos has been knocking on the door for a few weeks, providing a goal and an assist off the bench in his last 2 appearances from the bench.
Projected Points: 9.9
With Dennis, Sarr and Pedro all playing badly, Cucho has a chance to find himself back in the XI for the weekend. Although United might seem like a difficult fixture on paper, it actually has not been so far this season (United give up 9.5 points on average for the forwards that play against them this season)
Honourable Mentions: Olise (PP: 11.4), Rashica (PP: 8.8), Schlupp (PP: 9.6)
Saturday 17:30 BST
LIV vs ARS
Projected Points: 8.8
Just like in the first game of the GW, it is highly unlikely that you will find a decent streamer in this game. Injury fears for Mané have been debunked, but on the off chance that he is not available, Origi or Minamino will surely get the nod in the front 3.
Honourable Mentions: Martinelli (PP: 7.9), Oxlade-Chamberlain (PP: 7.4)
Sunday 14:00 BST
MCI vs EVE
Team: Man City
Projected Points: 10.3
A personal favourite streamer of mine, Dinho is one of those ghost point magnets who seem to just inherently ooze ghost points. I wouldn't put it past him to get to around 10 with a yellow (which is already guaranteed) if he starts. The injuries and COVID diagnosis for KDB might force Pep to look to his trusted lieutenant in this game.
Honourable Mentions: Zinchenko (PP: 11.2), Ake (PP: 9.1)
Sunday 16:30 BST
TOT vs LEE
I would advise against leaving it until the last game to stream a starting spot because pickings will be slim.
Projected Points: 7.2
Spurs defenders are the flavour of the day and out of those currently, Davies looks like the only one who is definitely a lock for this game. Conte is looking to build on a decent start to jump-start Spurs' season during this upcoming "easier" fixture list. Tanganga may also start and be streamable.
Honourable Mentions: Doherty (PP: 10.2), Ndombele (PP: 8.4)
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.

Vitaly Janelt - Brentford - GW13: vs EVE
Daniel Podence - Wolves- GW13: vs NOR
Enock Mwepu - Brighton - GW13: vs LEE
