FPL Gameweek 22 Tips: Best Players to Transfer In

After what feels like an eternity, FPL GW22 is finally upon us, which is also a double gameweek.

With Son injured and Salah away at AFCON now most managers need adequate replacements, ideally ones with two matches.

Visit our DGW schedule page to keep up to date with the fixture rearrangements.

Best Players for FPL DGW22

Update: Maddison is now only playing Tottenham (H). There is also a good chance the Arsenal Tottenham game is postponed which means Kane would only play Leicester (a).

The best assets to bring in this week are Harry Kane, James Maddison and Emmanuel Dennis.

The most brought in players ahead of GW22 are Diogo Jota, Heung-Min Son and Jarrod Bowen. The Son transfers will have mostly occurred before his injury, however.

Harry Kane

  • Price: £12.2m
  • Picked by: 12%
  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Leicester (a), Chelsea (a)

With Son absent through injury until February, Kane is the best Spurs asset for the double gameweek ahead.

He has the 5th highest xG in the league (7.6) despite scoring only four goals.

However he’s had his fair share of efforts, taking 50 shots (6th most in the league) including 21 on target (second most).

In GW22 he faces Arsenal and Leicester, boasting great league records against both, scoring 11 in 14 against Arsenal and 15 in 12 against Leicester.

James Maddison

  • Price: £6.9m
  • Picked by: 13%
  • Fixtures: Burnley (a), Spurs (H), Brighton (H)

Maddison is in great form, scoring 5 and assisting 5 this term.

He has the second highest xA in the Leicester squad (2.4), producing 11 goal-creating actions (fourth most in the league) at a rate of 0.85 per 90.

Also, he has the second highest non-penalty xG in the team (4.1), taking the most shots too (36).

This week he faces Burnley and Spurs, the former being the team who’ve conceded the most shots per game in the league (17).

Emmanuel Dennis

  • Price: £6.1m
  • Picked by: 38%
  • Fixtures: Newcastle (a), Burnley (a), Norwich (H)

Dennis will hope to continue his phenomenal debut season in England, scoring 8 and assisting 5 so far.

Getting 0.9 attacking returns per 90 is impressive, hitting 1.38 shots on target per 90 as well (fourth most in the league).

Additionally, he has the best fixtures out of any player at the moment, facing the bottom three in the next two gameweeks.

That starts with a double against Newcastle, the league’s second worst defence (conceding 42), and Burnley this week before facing Norwich in GW23.

David De Gea

  • Price: £5.2m
  • Picked by: 13%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (a), Brentford (a), West Ham (H)

In a poor season from United De Gea has stood out, making 64 saves (the most in the league) – 71% of overall shots faced.

His post-shot xG-Goals Against is also the highest (7.5), highlighting his ability to keep out high quality chances.

Priced at £5.2m he’s a cheap way into the United defence, which isn’t leaking goals like it was under Solskjær.

But also United have a double gameweek as well, facing Villa and Brentford away, both of which rank in the bottom three for shots per game at home.

A goalkeeper transfer may not be the most exciting, but this week it could be a smart one.
