FPL GW38 Transfer Targets
Bit of a different article for the final gameweek. In this I discuss my top four transfer targets, in order, for the final gameweek.
FPL GW38 Transfer – #1 Mo Salah (£12.9m / 42.4%)
Form – Yes (26 points in last 4 GWs)
Fixture – Yes (CRY)
Incentive – Yes (CL Qualification + Chasing Golden Boot)
Believe it or not, Salah is not owned by everyone (myself included) and if you are interested in protecting your rank, then you need the Egyptian King in your team. He is one of the few players at the crossroads of good form, a decent fixture and plenty of incentive to score.
Liverpool have made a miraculous comeback and have the Top 4 firmly in their grasp. Mo Salah will also be looking to win the Golden Boot once more and has Harry Kane breathing down his neck.
There’s not much else to say, Salah is as close to essential as it gets this gameweek. I will be taking a hit to bring him in and putting the armband on him.
#2 Harry Kane (£11.9m / 44.7%)
Form – Yes (5th for xG in last 4 GWs)
Fixture – No (Lei)
Incentive – Yes (EL qualification + Chasing Golden Boot)
If we are not reading too much into Harry Kane’s recent interview, then this could very well be his last game in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt. And if it is, then he will want to give the Spurs fans a performance to remember him by. Not to mention he is neck-and-neck with Mo Salah for the Golden Boot.
If ever a player had incentive to perform, it is Harry Kane in this next match.
Of course, Leicester are difficult opposition and fighting for their lives to secure a Top 4 spot, but we know Kane can rip any defence apart when he sets his mind to it. I expect a return from this man on the ultimate day.
#3 Joseph Willock (£4.9m / 3.2%)
Form – Yes (scored 6 goals in his last 6 appearances)
Fixture – Yes (ful)
Incentive – No
This lad is in amazing form at the moment. He has scored in each of his last six consecutive appearances. He costs less that £5m and at just over 3% ownership is a great differential. I will downgrade Zaha to Willock to enable the Bruno to Salah move.
Newcastle may not have a lot to play for but they face an already relegated Fulham so Willock could well be looking to make it 7 out of 7.
This guy could be a good pick for those looking for a last push in the final gameweek.
#4 Chris Wood (£6.5m / 4.9%)
Form – Yes (Joint 2nd for Big Chances)
Fixture – Yes (shu)
Incentive – No
Wood may have blanked in his last two games but he is reasonably consistent on most of the underlying stat metrics and, more importantly, faces a Sheffield United side who have nothing to play for after an awful season.
Prior to his two blanks, Wood returned a whopping 32 points in just 3 games and this fixture could be an excellent opportunity for more. At less that 5% ownership, he is a good shout for those chasing rank.
