Fantasy EPL Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI

For this article, we use the ownership statistics from Fantrax.  Our only rule is that each player we highlight is required to have ownership of 60% or below at the time of writing.  Therefore there’s a good chance these players will be free agents in your Fantrax Draft League!


GK: Sam Johnstone

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Ownership: 21%

Points Last Gameweek: 19.5

Prospects: I knew I should have backed Sam Johnstone last week. Fabianski served the Sleepers XI pretty well, but Johnstone posted an incredible 19.5 points against goal-shy Sheffield United. This week West Brom face similarly goal-shy Crystal Palace, and a clean sheet, as well as save points, are likely to be on the cards. Johnstone has a really good mix of making lots of saves, compared to conceding few goals. The Baggies have only conceded five goals in the last five games, which is actually pretty good for a side favorites for relegation.


DEF: Ryan Bertrand

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Brighton & Hove Albion (Away)

Ownership: 51%

Points Last Gameweek: -1

Prospects: I’m backing Ryan Bertrand from the Southampton defense rather than the higher scoring Bednarek. The reason being, Brighton doesn’t usually play long balls for center backs to pick off. Therefore, Bertrand should offer more points potential from attacking statistics. The veteran defender has been wildly inconsistent so far this season, but I’m backing him to perform well in my Gameweek 11 Sleepers. The Saints full-backs are better bets for points against Potters side for me.


DEF: Jonny Evans

Team: Leicester

Opponent: Sheffield United (Away)

Ownership: 45%

Points Last Gameweek: 4

Prospects: This one is pretty simple. Leicester’s opponents Sheffield United can’t score. They haven’t scored a goal in their last three outings, and therefore backing Jonny Evans and the Leicester defense is a no brainer. If you can get hold of any starting defender from the Foxes, then go for it! Evans has an added benefit of facing off against McBurnie. The big Scottish defender loves a header, and therefore the Blades will play plenty of long balls. McBurnie will win a lot of them, but Evans will win some of them. Defenders get one point for every aerial duel they win. No brainer.


DEF: Darnell Furlong

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Ownership: 30%

Points Last Gameweek: 23.5

Prospects: Did anyone follow my advice on Darnell Furlong last week? I really hope so as the West Brom defender gained a huge haul of 23.5 points. Yes, a defender from West Brom gained 23.5 points. And he did this without attacking returns. Furlong is a really solid asset and is now borderline more than a streamer. He could potentially be a reliable DEF3 for the rest of the season. This weekend the Baggies face Crystal Palace, and I’m doubling up on their defense for my Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI!


MID: Pascal Gross

Team: Brighton & Hove Albion

Opponent: Southampton (Home)

Ownership: 56%

Points Last Gameweek: 16

Prospects: Pascal Gross. Here we go again. I’ve featured the German midfielder a lot in recent weeks, but he continues to perform really well. Gross has gained 59 points during his last four games, and that form looks set to continue. Potter loves to rotate, but Gross is providing a consistent threat to opposing defenses and surely can’t be dropped on this form. If the Brighton man is somehow still a free agent in your Fantrax Draft League, go sign him up. An easy selection for my Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI.


MID: Cengiz Under

Team: Leicester City

Opponent: Sheffield United (Away)

Ownership: 30%

Points Last Gameweek: 9.5

Prospects: 9.5 points in 45 minutes of action in Gameweek 10? Yes, please. It remains to be seen if Cengiz Under is ever going to start a Premier League game, but I like to think he eventually will! Damn you, Brendan Rogers. Anyway, Under came on at half-time on Monday night, and performed pretty well all things considered. If the Turkish winger has been dropped to your free agent pool, now is the time to take a punt on him. He may not start against Sheffield United, but good things are coming. Plus with a hectic Christmas fixture list on the horizon, Rogers will have no choice but to start Under in some games!


MID: Moussa Djenepo

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Brighton & Hove Albion (Away)

Ownership: 27%

Points Last Gameweek: 15

Prospects: How in the world is Moussa Djenepo’s ownership only 27%?! I backed the Malian midfielder last week, and he bagged a score of 15. That coming after ghost point scores of 9 and 9.5. With Redmond struggling with injury, and Walcott moving further forward in the absence of Ings, Djenepo is thriving. I expect him to start again this weekend, even if Ings does return to the squad. He deserves another chance and is well worthy of inclusion in the Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI. The FF Genie featured the Southampton man in his waiver wire article early this week too. The Saints face a trip to Brighton this weekend.


MID: Conor Gallagher

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Ownership: 11%

Points Last Gameweek: 14.5

Prospects: Conor Gallagher is turning into a pretty tidy Fantrax asset. The Chelsea loanee has established himself in the Baggies midfield and is showing plenty of potential. Last week Gallagher was in my Reserve XI, and brought home a goal and 14.5 points. This week he’s upgraded to a slot in my Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI. Gallagher will play 90 minutes every game, and will usually fill out his stats sheet pretty consistently. I’m always banging on about steady scoring midfielders that are required in Fantrax. The West Brom youngster is another addition to that group of players.


FWD: Danny Welbeck

Team: Brighton & Hove Albion

Opponent: Southampton (Home)

Ownership: 39%

Points Last Gameweek: 17.5

Prospects: Three starts for Brighton. Three double-figure hauls. 11.5, 14.5, and 17.5 points. Its been an incredible start for Danny Welbeck at his new club. After a couple of appearances in my Reserve XI, I’m giving the veteran striker a call-up to the Gameweek 11 Sleepers XI! This weekend Brighton faces Southampton at home, and I’m expecting an open and exciting game between Potter and Hassenhutl’s sides. Welbeck will start once again due to his amazing form, and Maupay’s injury concerns. Welbeck is a solid FWD3 for any Fantrax roster.


FWD: Fabio Silva

Team: Wolves

Opponent: Arsenal (Away)

Ownership: 8%

Points Last Gameweek: 1.5

Prospects: After Wolves’ main striker Jimenez suffered a shocking injury in Gameweek 10, it has opened the door to young prodigy Fabio Silva. After just 12 senior appearances for Porto, Wolves opened the checkbook and spent a reported £35 million on the 18-year-old Portuguese forward. Silva’s form so far in terms of Fantrax hasn’t been great, but it’s incredibly hard to judge based on his limited game time. The youngster looks set to lead the line for Wolves, and he’s worth a punt between now and the January transfer window opening. Silva and Wolves face a trip to Arsenal this weekend.


FWD: Karlan Grant

Team: West Bromwich Albion

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Home)

Ownership: 12%

Points Last Gameweek: 7.5

Prospects: I did have Newcastle man Joelinton in this final slot, but due to the postponement of his fixture against Aston Villa, I’m taking a punt on Karlan Grant. The West Bromwich Albion forward isn’t great in Fantrax, but he does start every game, and he has a fixture towards the second half of Gameweek 11. If you need a backup option to cover some of your earlier players being benched, then picking up Grant isn’t the worst of ideas. West Brom face Crystal Palace at home in a game that they could easily walk away with three points from.

Average Ownership: 36%
