With many managers planning to activate their second Wildcard in Gameweek 34, it offers the chance to take a one-week punt this week for Gameweek 33. You can bring in a player who you wouldn’t usually consider knowing that you can ship them out again next week whatever happens.
The @FPLGeneral has picked out five ‘punts’ to consider for this weekend’s action.
Benjamin Chilwell – Huddersfield vs Leicester
The English left-back registered his fourth assist of the season in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth in Gameweek 32 to delight his fantasy owners. The Foxes defence is attractive this week as they travel to face goal-shy Huddersfield. The Terriers have managed to score just 18 goals in 32 matches this season. The bookies give Brendan Rodgers’ side a 45% chance of keeping a clean sheet on Saturday. Benjamin and co. should bring home the points again this weekend.
Aaron Ramsey – Everton vs Arsenal
If Ramsey is fit for the trip to Goodison Park (he picked up a knock in the 2-0 win over Newcastle on Monday night), he could prove to be a shrewd differential. Somewhat surprisingly, the Welsh midfielder captained Arsenal against the Magpies even though he is set to leave the club in the summer. Post-match, Unai Emery praised Ramsey’s commitment to the club which bodes well for his chances of game time between now and the end of the season. He’s got himself on the scoresheet in two of his last three appearances. On current form, he must stay in the team surely?

Youri Tielemans – Huddersfield vs Leicester
Attacking returns in each of his last five starts, what more can you ask for? Tielemans has been racking up the fantasy points in recent weeks with a goal and four assists to his name. He faces a Huddersfield side in Gameweek 33 who have registered just one clean sheet in their last ten. Leicester assets will be heavily backed by managers this week and they should continue their good form under Rodgers to make it four wins on the bounce.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – Everton vs Arsenal
‘Siggy’ has delivered attacking returns in three of his last five appearances (2 goals & 2 assists). On paper, the fixture this week is not ideal, but with set pieces and penalties in his locker, he’s always capable of scoring big. The Toffees go into the Arsenal game high on confidence having beaten Chelsea and West Ham in their last two league matches. Sigurdsson has flown under the radar for most of the season despite scoring the same number of goals (12) as Raul Jimenez and Roberto Firmino.
Ashley Barnes – Bournemouth vs Burnley
The goals have dried up in recent weeks for Barnes (he’s failed to score in his last three) but a trip to Bournemouth could see him get back on the goal trail. At this stage of the season, it’s always good to target players from teams who still have something to play for and Burnley tick that box as they battle to avoid the drop. The Cherries have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight. Barnes is likely to be the penalty taker too if the Clarets are to be awarded one which we know doesn’t happen very often.
