#FlyBuy - GW27

I hit the jackpot again with last week's pick, Hull City new boy Dame N'Doye. This was probably the most confident I was all season with one of my tips. This instant understanding between N'Doye and Jelavic was evident the previous week in the home game against Villa. Both of them scored that day in a 2-0 win. They repeated the feat in GW26 and the fixtures are still pretty good for Hull until they face Chelsea in GW30 so there is still time to get on board with the Senegalese hitman.

Turning my attention to this week, the blank gameweek is upon us, which means pretty much everyone will have a fully loaded bench of non-players. This week - in my opinion - is where the gains can be made. I'm not personally thinking of gameweek 28 as a double gameweek in the strictest sense of the word. Two fixtures for an extremely poor QPR side and a Spurs side whose fixture list is congestion personified. Anyway, before I get ahead of myself, it's THIS week we are focussing on here!

I have decided to tip a player this week who has been out of the team since the back end of last year when he disappeared away on Asian Cup duties. Having captained his side (Australia) to tournament victory, the ankle injury he picked up in the Group Stages in the game against Kuwait continued to bother him.

This meant that despite his return a few weeks ago, he missed the games against Leicester, Newcastle and Arsenal. His team, Crystal Palace, managed a win, a draw and a loss in those matches. Now he is fit and raring to go, he will be eager to impress his new manager and finish the season strongly with the confidence winning an International tournament is bound to give a player.

Obviously, I am referring to Palace captain Michael John "Mile" Jedinak, who is competitively priced at £5.0m and is owned by just 2.6% of FPL managers. Palace's next 5 fixtures, while Jedinak is active as a FlyBuy selection are: WHU (A) / SOU (A) / QPR (H) / STO (A) / MCY (H)

Arguably not the easiest of fixtures, but with the "Return of the Jedi" (sorry) they should pick up some points, and he can hopefully add to his 5 goals and 2 assists earned already this season.
