EPL GAMEWEEK 38

It’s finally here, Championship Sunday 2019! Largest slate and final day of the season brings us a title that is still up for grabs. Like the final day of every EPL season, all 20 teams are playing at the same time. 10 games, huge amount of goals. 

Liverpool and Manchester City are fighting for the crown and it’s going down to the final minutes. If City wins, they win the Premier League. Anything less and Liverpool wears the crown.

Since all 20 teams are in play, ownership will be more spread out than normal. Since Man City and Liverpool have everything to play for, you can expect their players to be popular.

Here are the final week rankings from all across the pitch:

FORWARD:

Aguero/Sterling/Sane— Unless you want to be real bold and fade City in GPP, at least 2 of these 3 attackers should be in your lineup. A real contrarian GPP move is to add one of Mahrez or Bernardo Silva for 4 City players. Aguero ($8.8) is a big game player while Sterling ($8.4) is the hottest player in the league

Rashford (MU) $7.9- Super cheap for a game changer

Salah (LIV) $10.5– Back in action and trying to carry Liverpool on his back to the title…will shoot…shoot…and shoot again. Safest floor of the day.

Mane (LIV) $9.6– should be slightly lower owned than Salah but can produce same results

BEST OF THE REST:

Sturridge (LIV) $5.5

Lacazette (ARS) $7.7

Ings (SOU) $5.7 GPP or other Southampton striker (Long/Redmond)

Zaha (CRY) $7.9

King (BOU) $4.9 VALUE GPP

Hoilett (CAR) $4.8 VALUE GPP (if starting)

MIDFIELD:

Maddison (LEI) $8.0- Week in and week out at the top of the rankings..tough game against Chelsea and high salary may force a fade if paying up for at least two attackers

Gylfi (EVE) $7.8

Fraser (BOU) $8.0- Slight discount— has at least 15 FP in last 4 starts

JWP (SOU) $7.8- good spot against a team that concedes crosses

Willian (CHE) $7.7

Milivojevich (CRY) $7.3

Pogba (MU) $7.2  Discounted but can take over the entire slate.  Stack with Rashford for huge GPP potential

D Silva (MCI) $6.5 get a piece of City for this price

BEST OF THE REST:

Lanzini (WHU) $4.1 VALUE

Hughes (WAT) $4.2 GPP

Wijnaldum (LIV) $3.6 GPP

Chong (MUN) $3.5 Value (if starting)

DEFENSE:

TAA (LIV) $6.3/Digne (EVE) $6.0– #1 and #1A.  Very high floors…best dmen on the entire slate.  Pair them if possible

Bertrand (SOU) $4.8– If JWP doesn’t start this is your #3 on the slate

Holebas (WAT) $5.5

Mendy (MCI) $4.2– questionable on start.. but if he does..close to a MUST PLAY

Bryan (FUL) $5.4

Trippier (TOT) $5.5

BEST OF THE REST:

Lowe (HUD) $3.8 Value (if starting)..at least 4.3 points in last 7 starts

Van Dijk (LIV) $3.9 GPP

Pereira (LEI) $4.5 GPP

GOALKEEPER:

Heaton (BUR) $4.4

Ederson (MCI) $6.0

Schmeichel (LEI) $4.7
