Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 Gameweek 17: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 17 kicks off on Saturday the 14th of December at 12:30 pm UK time, when Liverpool play host to Watford.

Gameweek 17 will end on Monday the 16th of December, with Brighton traveling to Crystal Palace.

So, all of your transfers for GW17 need to be done by 11:30 am UK time on Saturday.

But if you are struggling to choose who to sign and who to sell this week, here are some tips.

Three in including Chelsea forward

Tammy Abraham (7.9)

Chelsea are set to play host to Bournemouth this gameweek.

Granted, Chelsea have not been in great form of late, losing three of their last five Premier League outings.

However, despite their results, Chelsea have still been doing fairly well going forward, and should have no problems scoring against Bournemouth.

The Cherries are in dismal form, losing all of their last five PL outings.

It is also worth noting that arguably Bournemouth’s best defender, Nathan Ake, is ruled out for the clash at Stamford Bridge.

So, given Bournemouth’s recent form, and the absence of Ake, there is a good chance that Tammy Abraham will once again be amongst the goals this weekend.

Abraham has scored 11 and assisted three in the league so far this term.

Jamie Vardy (10.1)

Jamie Vardy has once again made it into one of these pieces but, seriously, if you don’t have Vardy in your FPL side by now, what is wrong with you?

The former England international has had a scintillating first-half of the 2019/20 campaign.

Vardy is currently the top scorer in the Premier League with 16 goals netted in 16 outings.

The Leicester man has also provided four assists in the league this term, and has amassed a staggering 128 points on FPL.

That makes him not only the top forward on FPL, but also the top player from any position.

And with high-flying Leicester at home to relegation-battling Norwich this game week, another goal or two look very likely for Vardy.

Sadio Mane (12.3)

Liverpool are at home to Watford this weekend.

Granted Watford do have a new boss in the form of Nigel Pearson for the trip to Anfield.

But even with the impact of a new boss, it is hard to see Watford getting anything out of this tie.

The Hornets have earned just nine points from 16 PL outings this term.

As for Liverpool, they are undefeated in the league this season, and have a commanding eight-point lead atop the table.

So, even if Watford somehow salvage a draw, there is a good chance that Liverpool will score. And with Sadio Mane their best performer on FPL this season, you probably want him in your side.

Three out including Tottenham attacker

Harry Kane (10.9)

Harry Kane is by no means having a bad season with Tottenham.

The striker has scored nine and provided two assists in the league this campaign.

However, at 10.9, Kane simply isn’t worth his price.

Kane’s teammate Heung-Min Son is currently 0.9 cheaper, and has five more points.

And should you wish to replace Kane with a striker from another team, there are six players above the Spurs man in the FPL forward leaderboard, all of whom are currently cheaper than him.

Anthony Martial (7.6)

Much like Kane, Anthony Martial is not having a terrible season.

However, if you want a Man United player in your FPL side, you would probably be better served signing Marcus Rashford.

Martial has scored just once in his last five PL outings, with Daniel James earning more FPL points than him this season.

Rashford also looks to be much better value for money than Martial.

The Englishman has scored four in his last four league ties, and is the joint second-best forward on FPL, with only Jamie Vardy having earned more points than him.

Lucas Digne (5.7)

While Everton turned their fortunes around last weekend with a 3-1 win over Chelsea, Lucas Digne has not.

The Frenchman seemed like a fairly popular player in FPL sides at the beginning of the season.

But with just one goal contribution and zero clean sheets in his last seven league appearances, Digne really isn’t justifying his price-tag.

The likes of John Lundstram and Caglar Soyuncu would be much better defensive options for your side.
