FPL GW30+: Bench Boost Selection

There are several strategies to utilise for FPL GW30+ and here we would be picking a squad for us to use the Bench Boost chip. The concept is simple, maximise players from the four teams with DGW and look into using a wildcard for GW31+.

Almost 100 days ago, we ran the statistics of this gameweek and they are still valid as of now.


This is one position that is not difficult to pick given the options. 

  • Ederson (MCI | 6.0) – City has two home games and Ederson is unlikely to be displaced as the number one.
  • Dean Henderson (SHU | 5.3) – If you have to pick one GK then it would be hard to differentiate between Henderson and Ederson BUT on the Bench Boost, it makes sense to have both


  • Aymeric Laporte (MCI | 6.3) – In an ideal world we would like to have two City defenders but if we have to pick one we will gamble with the Frenchman. Laporte has missed the season since GW05 and City has really struggled without him. He is now back to full fitness and expected to make game time.
  • David Luiz (ARS | 5.7) – Arsenal are not likely to keep clean sheet but we pick Luiz because he is most likely to start and also is the Arsenal defender with the most likely chance of scoring.
  • John Lundstram (SHU | 4.9) – One of the standout players of the Blades this season, both in real life and in FPL. Lundstram has accumulated 4 goals, 4 assist and 9 clean sheets and we pick him to start in midfield again in front of Berge
  • George Baldock (SHU | 5.2) – We will like a second Sheff Utd defender and we go for Baldock, who has 2 goals and 4 assists. More impressively, he has not missed a single minute of action in 28 games for his side prior to the COVID19 suspension.
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV | 7.8) – We cannot pick ALL 15 players with two games so we pick TAA. He is only player whom we have kept from the beginning and will like to have for the rest of the season.


FPL GW30+ Bench Boost

  • Kevin de Bruyne (MCI | 10.6) – Second highest top scoring FPL player has two home games in a week. KDB is an obvious choice and likely to be captained by many. Only worry here, as with all City selection, is the possibility of a Pep rotation
  • Jack Grealish (AVL | 6.4) – Another popular choice would be the Villa midfielder. He is the captain of his side and his side’s survival or otherwise would rely much on him.
  • Anwar El Ghazi (AVL | 5.5) – EL Ghazi’s price makes him a good choice ahead of other Villa midfielders. Already has 4 goals and 5 assists this season
  • Bukayo Saka (ARS | 4.7) – A cheap pick from Arsenal. He was involved in all 6 of Arsenal’s last games before the hiatus and we reckon he will get the minutes over 2 games.
  • Mason Mount (CHE | 6.1) – The last midfield spot leaves us with many choices but we went for Mount eventually as a player we would like to keep for the rest of the season


We have taken a gamble here not to pick Sergio Aguero.

  • PE Aubameyang (ARS | 11.1) – The Gabonese already have 17 goals to date and will lead the Gunners’ line for the rest of the season
  • Mbwana Samatta (AVL | 5.8) – Villa’s only fit forward will hopefully get enough game time upfront to add to his goal tally.
  • Raul Jimenez (WOL | 8.1) – Wolves’ regular goalscorer gets our pick. Selected here as we are likely to keep the man for the long haul – Wolves are chasing for Europe and will not meet a traditional Top 6 side until GW38+

Our pals at AllAboutFPL picks a side to for the longer haul and some differentials.
