Fantasy Friday: Gameweek 21 EPL Fantasy Tips

Premier League Fantasy Tips

This week’s Fantasy Friday EPL Tips will be focused on a return to a normal Premier League weekend with gameweek 21. This weekend features several interesting clashes that could result in plenty of fantasy points, if you get your team picked right.

This weekend there are several top fantasy scorers that are out, questionable, or probable. I’ll be going through the long list of players that meet this criteria; some notables including the addition of Yaya Toure, Jesus Navas, and Theo Walcott.

Doubtful: Recently injured or still on their way back from injury these players should be avoided since there is little chance of them being risked.

Kieran Gibbs – calf injury

Aaron Ramsey – thigh injury

Craig Bellamy – knee injury

Phil Jagielka – hamstring injury

Jonny Evans – back injury

Phil Jones – knee injury

James Collins – calf injury

James Tomkins – groin injury

Questionable: These are players who are on their way back from injuries and could be pushed into playing, depending on how much they are needed, but most will be rested. They will be risky fantasy choices this weekend.

Joe Bennett – back injury

Sylvain Distin – hamstring injury

Maarten Stekelenburg – ankle injury

Mamadou Sakho – hamstring injury

Daniel Sturridge – ankle injury

Yohan Cabaye – Achilles injury

Artur Boruc – hand injury

Thomas Sorensen – Achilles injury

Probable: Will most likely be available, but will still be up to the manager as to whether they will play or not. Could be a risky pick, but just make sure to check on their status before match time.
