Having the luxury to pick up free agent players 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.
To make open roster spots on your team, drop players or execute unbalanced trades where you give away more players than you receive.
Stream Your Way Through Gameweek 3
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
MCI vs ARS
Team: Manchester City
Projected Points (PP): 12.3
Pep Roulette is in full swing this season, so it is anybody's guess who starts for the Citizens. With options being very limited in the low ownership category, Fernandinho could sneak a start and come up with big numbers against lowly Arsenal.
Honourable Mentions: none
Saturday 15:00 BST
NEW vs SOU, BRI vs EVE, WHU vs CRY, NOR vs LEI, AVL vs BRE
Alexis Mac Allister
Projected Points: 7.1
Another rotational piece with amazing upside. He is probably worth a hold even if he does not start against Everton, if you have the roster spot to accommodate him.
Honourable Mentions: Mathias Jensen (PP: 7.9), Ryan Fraser (PP: 10.9), Jeffrey Schlupp (PP: 8.8), Marc Albrighton (PP: 11.1)
Saturday 17:30 BST
LIV vs CHE
Projected Points: 6.2
It is highly unlikely that Elliot will start this high priority derby in midfield, as Klopp usually opts for a less creative and more industrious midfield setup in big games. That said, he was close to being named Man of the Match against Burnley, so Klopp may reward him with another start. Although Elliot's not likely to last the full 90, in the middle of the gameweek, your midfield could benefit from his incisive passing and ability to find pockets of space.
Honourable Mentions: Callum Husdon-Odoi (PP: 9.3)
Sunday 14:00 BST
BUR vs LEE, TOT vs WAT
Projected Points: 10.3
Four Key Passes in 24 minutes on his way to 8 points in his substitute appearance in GW3 from everyone's favourite faux-English, made-of-glass forward has us at the Draft Society all excited. If only he could stay healthy...
Honourable Mentions: Ashely Barnes (PP: 11.2), Troy Deeney (PP: 6.7)
Sunday 16:30 BST
WOL vs MUN
I would advise against leaving it until the last game to stream a starting spot because pickings will be slim.
Donny van de Beek
Team: Manchester United
Projected Points: 8.0
Look. Anything can happen. A freak injury crisis. A stomach bug hitting only United midfielders... who knows? Most likely he won't even make the matchday squad. But "Stream your way through the Gameweek" is all about out of the box punts, who you can discard in a heartbeat if they are not starting. If you have a spot open until this late in the GW, why not take a punt?
Honourable Mentions: Rayan Ait-Nouri (PP: 4.7)
