FPL GW37 wildcard team: the best gameweek 37 wildcard FPL teams

The penultimate gameweek of the season the final double gameweek GW37 is here and it promises to be an exciting one. It is a gameweek where Man City, Man United, Chelsea and Brighton play twice. It is also a gameweek where Man City could be crowned as champions of the Premier League.

For us FPL managers especially those with their wildcard, GW37 is looking like the right time to use this FPL chip. This article discusses the pros and cons of using the wildcard chip, alternative times to use it, key considerations to keep in mind, and the best teams to target. We will also create our own Gameweek 37 wildcard for FPL managers to use as a guide.

Pros and Cons of Wildcarding In FPL GW37

Well, before we go into creating our gameweek 37 wildcard, we want to see some of the benefits of wildcarding this gameweek. Here are the pros of a GW37 wildcard:

Pros of a GW37 wildcard

  • Using your FPL wildcard chip in GW37 would allow you to target players who are on form now and have great upcoming fixtures.
  • Wildcarding in gameweek 37, would allow you to target differentials and players who double this gameweek.
  • A well-optimized GW37 wildcard would allow you to plan for the long term it’d help you get past double gameweek 37 and the final gameweek, GW38.
  • Wildcarding now also means that you can target players from teams that still have a lot to play for. That is teams that are yet to secure their top four places and teams that are involved in the relegation battle.

Cons of a GW37 wildcard

Well, for everything that has pros, there are cons and a GW37 wildcard is no different. Here are some of the disadvantages of wildcarding in gameweek 37.

  • If you use your wildcard in Gameweek 37 without careful planning, it could put you in a tough spot, especially if you focus on players from Manchester City. If Manchester City wins the league against Chelsea this week, there’s a good chance they will rest players in the following matches. So, if you heavily invest in Manchester City players, you may find yourself in a difficult situation.

Our Advice: In our opinion wildcarding this gameweek is a pretty good strategy. Playing your wildcard now would definitely get you through to the end of the season.

Alternative times to wildcard aside from GW37

If after weighing the pros and cons of a GW37 wildcard, you’ve decided to hold onto your wildcard, you might be wondering what other time could I activate it. Well, there is one other ideal time.

  1. GW38 is another good time to use the wildcard chip. A wildcard in GW38 would be like a free hit, that’s because in that gameweek we’d be targeting players from teams that have a lot to play for.

Some important things to keep in mind as you play your FPL wildcard in gameweek 37

As you create your GW37 wildcard team, here are a couple of things you should keep in mind:

  • First, you want to try as much as possible to select players guaranteed a place in the first eleven of their teams.
  • You want to keep the long-term in mind when selecting players for your GW37 wildcard team.
  • You want to try to have a solid bench, in case of rotations and injuries.
  • You don’t want to be carried away by the double gameweek. Single gameweek players like Trent and Salah could outperform doublers.

The best teams to target for your GW37 FPL wildcard team

Since we’re looking to create a wildcard team that’d take us from GW37-38, we must target the right teams. We’d be looking to target teams that double this week and have great fixtures in GW38. To help you identify such teams, we’d be sharing a fixture ticker done by fpltips__

GW37 wildcard Team

GW37 wildcard Team

Here’s how we’re looking to set up this gameweek. We’ve got seven doublers in this team, and these are players we think are going to start the majority of the games in GW37 and also feature in GW38. In Man City we’ve gone for Haaland and Mahrez, in United we’ve got Shaw and Rashford while in Brighton we’ve got Mitoma, Estupinan, and Steele.

We believe it’s a solid team that is balanced. We’ve not gone over the top with doublers, rather we’ve got a nice mix of single and double gameweek players. We’ve also got Mitrovic in here and he is simply a differential pick. You could check out our list of alternative picks for more ideas.

This is what this team would like in GW38. From the image, you can clearly see that it’s a pretty solid team that has the long-term in mind. We expect it to do well not just this gameweek, but also in GW38. Remember though, that our wildcard team serves as inspiration – you can come up with a much better team if you can bits from our wildcard drafts.
