Starting 11 has another free to enter £50.00* mini-league prize on offer this weekend. I’m here to bring you tips and hints on how to make the most of your Daily Fantasy Premier League team.
We all love fantasy football and with a lot of us playing in FPL cash games with family, friends and work colleagues, Starting 11 are offering us the chance to win some fresh cash, every weekend!
What makes Starting 11 special is that there are no player price caps or budget restrictions, which allows you to pack a weekly team with as many premium assets as you want, rather than being forced to own less accomplished players from the bottom end of the table.
If you’d like to get involved this week by challenging myself and many other FPL managers from the community, simply create your line-ups today by downloading the free Starting 11 app, which is available on both iOS and Android.
*Terms and conditions apply
This Saturday we have SIXTEEN teams in action which include some fixtures that are difficult to call. You can only choose 11 players. Who will make your Starting 11?
Below, I (@FPLHints) will show you all my line-up in advance and offer a few thoughts on which premium and differential players I’m considering.
Once you’ve installed the app and are logged in, please head over to the ‘Mini-League’ tab and there you will see FPLTips’ contest for Saturday 23rd November.
As mentioned, both the iOS and Android apps are free to download, and the £50.00 free roll contest is free to join and play so there's nothing to lose.
Raul Jimenez vs. Bournemouth (A)
Raul Jimenez is showing both form and consistency ahead of the trip to Bournemouth, having scored three times now during his last four Premier League outings. He is beginning to rediscover his goal scoring touch from last season.
A front three of Vardy, Jimenez and Abraham is becoming the go-to front three this season across all fantasy football platforms – Jimenez deserves his place among that trio.
Their opponents Bournemouth managed to keep three clean sheets on the run recently, a side normally known for both scoring and conceding goals. However, normal service was resumed during Gameweek 12 as Newcastle put two past the Cherries.
What’s also worth noting is that Jimenez only played 20 minutes during his international fixture midweek, so he will be fresher than expected going into Gameweek 13.
James Maddison vs. Brighton (A)
While Vardy picks up the headlines, Maddison continues to be the driving force behind Leicester’s attacking football.
Maddison so far this season has chipped in with four goals and three assists, however a closer look suggests he could have delivered even more returns and feels like a must own at this stage of the season.
He has averaged two shots per game this season and in addition to his four goals, has missed four big chances – he’s averaging over two key passes per game.
There is a discussion as to whether we should own Maddison or Tielemans (on Starting 11 this week I have both!), however with Maddison’s set pieces added to his armoury – he edges it for me.
This week’s opponents Brighton have conceded nine times during their last six games. They play an attacking form of football to pose a real threat to Leicester’s winning run – but I still expect Leicester to score easily.
We all have to own an Everton player this week in Starting 11, purely for their fixture this week vs Norwich City.
Lucas Digne was a firm favourite among the FPL Community earlier in the season – attacking, set pieces, as well as the addition of possible clean sheets.
Three assists so far is less than we hoped for, as are only three clean sheets after a favourable opening fixture run. However considering Norwich have only scored twice during their last seven games, those clean sheet points look almost safe.
At the other end of the pitch, Norwich have conceded SIXTEEN times during those seven games. I'm sure we will see Digne in his opponents half more than we do defending his own goal.
