With several top fantasy players dealing with injuries and card accumulations, week 18 has become rather interesting in terms of putting out the strongest team possible. Those players who will be out for sure include Diego Costa, N’Golo Kante, Sergio Aguero, Jaime Vardy, Christian Fuchs, Robert Huth, and Marko Arnautovic for either yellow card accumulation or red card suspensions.
There are several others that may be missing due to injuries including Eden Hazard, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Joel Matip, Aaron Ramsey, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Considering the busy holiday season it seems likely that many of these players will be getting a rest, particularly Eden Hazard since Chelsea will be facing Bournemouth.

Week FPL 18 Matchups
For week 18 there are a few decent matches to look at for picking FPL players. Both Swansea and West Ham attacking players should be on the wish list. Man City travel to Hull City where they shouldn’t have any problems scoring goals while Manchester United host Sunderland in what should be an easy home win.
Chelsea hosting Bournemouth should be a chance to pick up yet another clean sheet and win for the Blues despite being without several players. There are just as many difficult matches this weekend including Liverpool v Stoke and Arsenal v West Brom where home attacking players are still good options.
Week 18 should have some solid Premier League matches and make for some exciting and enjoyable watching. Come back later this week for the week 18 FPL tips.
