The #FPL Twitter community has been really active this week sharing some good GW35 tips. We’ve seen a lot of discussions about gameweek 35 wildcards, GW35 captains and the best way to play our various chips from now until the season ends.
Although we might be in gameweek 35, FPL Twitter is looking way ahead of that and most of the talk has been around the remaining two double gameweeks in gameweek 36 and 37.
The newly updated fixture list has also contributed to all this talk. An updated fixture list was released yesterday and that killed all the speculation about when Man City would double.
The new fixture list now sees 12 teams double in gameweek 36 and four teams double in gameweek 37 with Liverpool no longer blanking in gameweek 37 – Liverpool now face Southampton in gameweek 37. Here’s a tweet by the @OfficialFPL confirming FPL this.
The final piece to the jigsaw is finally here and us FPL managers now have all the information we need to plan ahead. Let’s now see what FPL Twitter managers are doing with their wildcards, free hit, bench boost and captains this gameweek.
Welcome to our GW35 tips by FPL Twitter managers. If you do enjoy this article or you find it useful, feel free to check back every Thursday for more.
GW35 tips: who is the popular captain pick
Gameweek 35 is one of those gameweeks where there’s no definitive captain with a lot of FPL managers spilt between Salah, Son, Kane and Kevin De Brunye.
Although the Spurs duo haven’t been at their best, many FPL managers would still be willing to give Harry Kane the captains armband in gameweek 35.
The reason is because of Kane’s impressive record against Leicester, Leicester’s involvement in Europe, and the fear of Salah and De Brunye’s minutes being managed because of their involvement in the UEFA Champions League.
To be fair those are really valid arguments and points you’d want to keep in mind before picking your gameweek 35 captain.
GW35 tips: who are some gameweek 35 transfer targets
Another question that is popping around on Twitter is, who are the best players to bring in if you’re on a wildcard? These questions are so common because of Man City’s double in gameweek 36.
So many managers are weary of Manchester City assets, because of the risk of rotation, others want to know the best budget forwards and some are contemplating whether to triple up on Aston Villa assets.
We have a post by @zophar666 suggesting that Man City assets aren’t all that appealing because of their fixture congestion.
And yes he makes a good point as well – there’s going to be a lot of rotation in the Man city camp so we want to be careful which asset we select.
@FPLOlympian shares his thoughts on some nailed on Man City assets that you might want to add to your wildcard.
The next big question is, which budget striker should you add to your wildcard draft?. The two popular budget picks are Emmanuel Dennis (5.8) Watford and Eddie Nketiah(5.5) from Arsenal.
Should you triple up on Aston Villa assets
Yes, you could triple up on Aston Villa assets. The benefit of that is Aston Villa are one of few teams who double in gameweek 36 and 37 so tripling up on their assets would have you well setup for those two double gameweeks.
However if you do triple up on them you could be left in a bit of a tricky position when gameweek 38 comes around. Aston Villa would be facing Man City in gameweek 38, and the potential for returns would be low.
If you use your free transfer to take one of your Aston Villa assets out before the start of gameweek 38, alongside a good bench then you should be fine in gameweekk 38.
