Gameweek 28 in the Fantasy Premier League turned out to be relatively poor, averaging just 43 points as several big hitters were unsuccessful and the upcoming round will be difficult to improve with just four games.
Blank Gameweek 29 also largely rules out the premium FPL assets as only Tottenham and Arsenal have some players falling into that category.
Successfully navigating this GW would involve picking the right mid to low range players, spotting the shape, and the underlying stats – most of all, a free hit chip would prove ideal.
Tottenham’s trip to Aston Villa will pull many eyeballs into action with popular tips, as will Arsenal’s visit to West Ham.
Elsewhere, a Brighton goal conceded at home against Newcastle would be a boon to the majority of FPL managers, while Fulham and Leeds could score some goals from a range of different players.
Here are some tips to guide you through GW29.
CAPTAIN – HARRY KANE | TOTTENHAM | 11.5M.
Don’t let its void in the North London Derby dissuade you from its glowing form. Harry Kane is better than ever and was unlucky not to score a few points against Arsenal. He had ruled out an offside goal and even hit the post once.
He is undoubtedly the focus of this Spurs attack, regardless of the form of Son Heung-min or Gareth Bale. The English skipper has three goals and two assists in his last four games. During this time he is also the front runner in shots in the Premier League , Shots on target  and recordings in the box .
Meanwhile, Kane likes to face Aston Villa. He has scored a brace in each of the last two encounters with the bad guys.
JESSE LINGARD (6.1 m) is a worthy candidate for the armband because of his current form and his influence on a well-trained West Ham unit. He’s only faded out once since joining the Hammers this season, averaging 7.3 points per game.
LEWIS DUNK (5.0 m) is as brave as it gets when it comes to captain picks. Although Brighton’s conceded goals have dried up to some extent in recent games, they have allowed only 12 shots on goal in the last five GWs and faced a difficult Newcastle attack. Dunk is also a significant threat from set pieces with four goals this season. It’s a huge boat, but when lightning strikes it’s a real slam dunk!
TO GET ONE
GARETH BALE | TOTTENHAM | 9.6 million
Bale’s resurgence with Spurs was slowed slightly by the Arsenal defeat, but with Son injured, the Welshman should be even more commanding in attack than before. He has great potential for large transports with recent results of 19 and 14 points. Not to mention the fact that at under 13 percent at the time of writing, it remains a very decent differential.
ONE TO AVOID
MATT GOAL | ASTON VILLA | 5.1M.
Matt Targett has been a perfectly solid performer this season and there is no sign of his form deteriorating. However, his FPL production could be shaken starting with his encounter with a dangerous Spurs squad this week. In addition, especially from GW31 onwards, Villa has to face a difficult run-in, one of the toughest in the league.
JOSH MAJA | FULHAM | 5.5 m
Fulham needed a spark up front and while Josh Maja has provided it, his goal has yet to be reflected. He hasn’t added to his balance sheet since bagging braces at Everton in GW24. He’s certainly a striker prepared for transport, however, and the floodgates may just open against a carefree Leeds outfit. His xG of 3.36 over the last four GWs is the highest in the league.
