The battle between Analytics FC and Grass FC rages on in Fantasy Premier League.
There are those who base their FPL selections on analytics and analytics alone, while others prefer to use their own intuition basing their picks on gut feel.
Our FPL tips are usually based on fixtures, form, stats, and odds – everything you’d expect from analytical-based decisions.
Let’s forget that for this article though, and highlight the best players for FPL DGW22 based purely on the eye test alone.
- Fixture: Fulham (H)
- Price: £7.0m
- Picked by: 2%
One of Chelsea’s many January transfer signings, headlined his club debut against Liverpool, with promise.
The 22-year-old Ukrainian came off the bench last Saturday, making a 35-minute appearance. The Ukrainian looked lively both on and off the ball.
Mudryk won three tackles, but also made two big chances but registered a shot on goal.
With starts being forecasted sooner rather than later, he may be a good pick for the long run.
Chelsea’s six of their next nine fixtures are rated as a 2 on the FDR.
- Fixture: Crystal Palace (H) & Leeds (H)
- Price: £7.2m
- Picked by: 50%
Rashford has been one of the best-scoring players since the restart. His 48 points are only bettered by Odegaard, Kane, and Trippier.
In all competitions, he has scored in 6 consecutive home games, equalling a club record.
In his last three league games in which he’s scored, he has registered three shots or less. This demonstrates how clinical he can be in front of goal.
Plus, a player who doesn’t need a heap of chances to score is always a welcome bonus.
With his ownership nearly 50%, it would be dangerous to go without him. He is too, the second-most transferred in.
And if that isn’t enough, he is comfortably predicted to get the most points in FPL DGW22.
- Fixture: Crystal Palace (H) & Leeds (H)
- Price: £9.9m
- Picked by: 9%
Fernandes has been in far better form since Cristiano Ronaldo left Man Utd.
From watching him within the last few weeks, it is clear there is more attacking intention and threat.
The Portuguese has returned in each of his last five gameweeks. This has come with two goals and three assists within that spell.
The attacking midfielder is somewhat replicating the form he showed a few seasons back, dating to the 2020/21 campaign.
Fernandes in that season achieved 244 fantasy points. This was the most of any midfielder in the game.
Four of United’s next five fixtures are rated as a 2 on the FDR.
With Utd having a double gameweek in 22, they are one of the teams to target in the short-term.
Because of this, the Portuguese may be a good alternative to his teammate, Marcus Rashford.
- Fixture: Nottingham Forest (a) & Man Utd (a)
- Price: £5.0m
- Picked by: 1%
The 19-year-old centre-forward has been one who’s made significant steps for Leeds within the first half of the season.
Having started his last five league games, and subsequent top-quality performers, he is now a certain starter.
He has a 90% chance of starting on the left-hand side, which is critical when planning through who to transfer in for the short term.
Leeds have a double gameweek in 22 also, but both are away. Statistically, Gnonto is a better player at home, having registered all of his returns from home games.
With a low price tag of £5.0m, he can be flexible based on your team structure. This is either coming from the bench or as a starter.
After DGW22, Leeds have Everton and Southampton within the next three gameweeks. Both sides, are currently placed in the relegation zone.
- Fixture: Bournemouth (H)
- Price: £5.1m
- Picked by: 6%
Mitoma has been one of Brighton’s revelations, under the guidance of Robert De Zebri.
The Japanese winger has registered a return in each of the last four gameweeks, with three goals and an assist.
In that time, he produced 6 shots on target and created 5 chances.
The 25-year-old has a direct style. He looks to go to defenders far more than the likes of Jack Grealish, for example.
In contrast, Grealish likes to cut back often and pass it. Albeit, that’s likely due to the instruction from his manager.
With his current ownership being just above 5%, he is still classed as an excellent differential. He too has the stats to back it up.
However, be slightly cautious if you are going to transfer him in. Brighton may have a blank in GW25, should Newcastle make the League Cup final.
