Fantrax EPL: Stream Your Way Through Gameweek 5

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.


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 5

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

NEW vs LEE


Jacob Murphy

Position: Midfielder

Team: Newcastle

Rostered: 27%

Projected Points (PP): 9.4

Although a rotation risk, Murphy almost always scores well when he gets the chance in the starting XI for lacklustre Newcastle. You may have your streaming spot locked and done as early as Friday night if you opt to start him.

Honourable Mentions: Almirón (PP: 7.9), Joelinton (PP: 10.3)


Saturday 12:30 BST

WOL vs BRF


Hwang Hee-Chan

Position: Forward

Team: Wolves

Rostered: 23%

Projected Points: 7.8

The Korean striker remains the only Wolves player to score a Premier League goal this season, so could easily be given a chance from the start against Brentford. The Premier League new boys have been solid at the back, so it will not be easy to break them down, but Hwang Hee-Chan has every chance to solidify his position as Wolves' primary goalscorer by Saturday midday.

Honourable Mentions: Jensen (PP: 7.9), Boly (PP: 7.6)


Saturday 15:00 BST

NOR vs WAT, BUR vs ARS, MCI vs SOU, LIV vs CRY


Cucho Hernandez

Position: Forward

Team: Watford

Rostered: 6%

Projected Points: 9.5

The Watford forward rotation may have settled down a bit, but there could always be a change-up if fortunes don't change. Hernandez should be started against rock bottom Norwich if he is in the XI.


Christos Tzolis

Position: Forward

Team: Norwich

Rostered: 5%

Projected Points: 7.9

A personal favourite of mine, the Greek youngster was lively in the relegation six-pointer against Arsenal, even taking over some set pieces on the way to a 6 point score.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Position: Midfielder

Team: Liverpool

Rostered: 5%

Projected Points: 5.0

Unfortunately Ox can no longer be considered a starter due to the massive amount of time he missed due to injuries. He is however still supremely talented, so if he can carve out a few starts in the midfield or even in the forward rotation, his direct style could net you quite a few fantasy points.


Honourable Mentions: Jones (PP: 8.7), Keita (PP: 6.1)


Saturday 17:30 BST

AVL vs EVE


Salomón Rondón

Position: Forward

Team: Everton

Rostered: 5%

Projected Points: 7.1

We all know how much Rafa loves Rondón. With DCL out, he might look to the Venezuelan battering ram to lead his attack once more.

Honourable Mentions: Mina (PP: 8.1), Ramsay (PP: 5.7)


Sunday 14:00 BST

BHA vs LEI, WHU vs MUN


Arthur Masuaku

Position: Defender

Team: West Ham

Rostered: 4%

Projected Points: 6.4

Masuaku is back from injury and hopefully, for fantasy manager's sake, he can get back into the starting XI soon. He gets loads of points when he plays.

Honourable Mentions: Evans (PP: 7.8), Cucurella (PP: 5.0)

Sunday 16:30 BST

TOT vs CHE

I would advise against leaving it until the last game to stream a starting spot because pickings will be slim.


Callum Hudson-Odoi

Position: Midfielder

Team: Chelsea

Rostered: 24%

Projected Points: 11.5

CHO started last weekend and got a decent score but that in no way guarantees him a spot in the XI. If you are desperate due to an unforeseen benching and CHO starts, he's not a bad shout at all. Having said that, please do not count on him starting.

Honourable Mentions: Gil (PP: 6.5)
