Gameweek 15 - Daily Fantasy Premier League Tips


Starting 11 is a new Daily Fantasy Premier League football game and app, which has become extremely popular amongst the FPL community since August 2017, as managers get to pick a brand new fantasy team each week, without the headache of managing a season-long team.

With three Gameweeks in eight days, rotation will be on the top of every S11 manager’s mind. You’ll want to keep a keen eye on the lineups when they drop and use your three subs wisely. The weekend’s focus will be on the Arsenal - Manchester United clash, but with the potential of a Mourinho-led stalemate, you may want to watch it closely and make early substitutes based on momentum instead of building your team around it.

As always, this week’s picks are suitable for all fantasy football game formats and will suit most scoring systems, so we hope you find good use for them, whether you’re playing Fantasy Premier League, or daily fantasy games over at Starting 11.

If you’d like to get involved this week by challenging us, simply create your lineups for Gameweek 15 today via the FREE Apple or Android apps.



Forwards


Safe Pick – Mo Salah


Mo Salah was rested until the 67th minute on Wednesday and promptly scored two goals in his brief cameo. He’s now on 12 goals in 14 gameweeks and is safely a must-pick every week.

He’s visiting Brighton, which isn’t an easy fixture, but is there a fixture in the world Salah couldn’t score in at the moment?




Differential Pick – Wayne Rooney


You may be chasing goals with a Wayne Rooney pick, but after a midweek hattrick, he’s worth a consideration as a differential. With the ability to pick a new lineup every week, there’s less punishment for going after form players that may be risky.

Everton are at home against Huddersfield for what will be Big Sam’s first match in charge.



Midfielders


Safe Pick –  Eden Hazard


The Belgian has two goals and two assists in the last three gameweeks as Chelsea have moved into third. He came off the bench in the 81st minute against Swansea midweek, so should be well-rested to face Newcastle.

The Magpies have allowed 19 goals this season and have only one away win in seven tries so far.





Differential Pick – Riyad Mahrez


Mahrez’s goal against Spurs was an absolutely gorgeous strike, reminiscent of numerous goals from the Foxes’ title-winning season. He’s on 3 goals and 6 assists through 14 Gameweeks with Jamie Vardy finding the back of the net midweek as well.

Leicester will be up against Burnley at home, against whom the Algerian’s ability to unlock stingy defenses should be key.


Defenders


Safe Pick – Cesar Azpilicueta


With Chelsea at home against Newcastle, who average less than a goal a game, Azpilicueta is a good bet for a clean sheet and some points at the other end as well.

Like Hazard, he was rested against Swans. Azpilicueta averaged 20 points in his three previous matches in S11, making him one of the most in-form players at the moment.




Differential Pick – Ashley Williams


Yes, I can’t believe it either. An Everton defender? The Toffees managed a clean sheet against West Ham at home and will now be taking on Huddersfield at Goodison Park. The visitors have only scored nine goals all year, so there’s a decent chance Everton could get a second clean sheet in a row.

If you decide to take the risk, be sure to have a sub handy in case things start looking shaky for the Toffees.




Goalkeepers


Safe Pick – Thibaut Courtois


Doubling up on Chelsea at the back is a solid strategy with another home match against a side that isn’t exactly prolific.

The Belgian keeper has kept a clean sheet in half of his matches so far this season.




Differential Pick – Lukasz Fabianski


Swansea are away to Stoke, which feels like it has 0-0 written all over it. Not many managers are going to take a punt on a keeper headed away, but Fabianski has been one of S11’s most consistent performers between the posts.


Captain Pick

Mo Salah, Mo Salah, Mo Salah. At this point, why would you choose anyone else?
