7 Fantasy Premier League Tips For Gameweek 12

We are 11 games into the Premier League season, and the table is really starting to take shape. Your Fantasy Premier League tables are also starting to establish a defined order, and dropping behind your mates at this stage of the season could cost you precious bragging rights further down the line. If you are looking to shoot up the table this week, look no further. We have the top Fantasy Premier League tips for game week 12.

Fantasy Premier League - Who To Pick

Fantasy Premier League Tips

Mohamed Salah

Salah has seen his form pick up a bit in recent games, and that is bad news for this week's opponents Fulham. The London side travel to Merseyside in last place and boasting the worst defensive record in the Premier League, conceding a ridiculous 29 goals in their 11 outings so far.

Liverpool could fill their hat in this game, with Salah being the most likely benefactor.

Felipe Anderson

Anderson performed exceptionally well for West Ham last week, bagging a brace in their 4-2 win over Burnley at the London Stadium. They travel up north this gameweek to take on a Huddersfield side who have only scored one home goal this season, and Anderson will fancy himself to continue his excellent goalscoring form.

This is also a more long-term pick, with West Ham set to go on an incredibly kind run of fixtures. They host  Manchester City next week, but after that will not face a top six side until January 12th (a run of eight games).

Shane Duffy

Fantasy Premier League Tips

Duffy has been in excellent form for Brighton this season, with his partnership with Lewis Dunk continuing to provide a solid base for Chris Hughton's side. They have a decent run of fixtures coming up, starting with a trip to Cardiff this week.

Duffy could be an excellent addition to your squad at a measly £4.6m, and always looks likely to pop up with a goal on the other end.

Jamie Vardy

Vardy has not been in great form during the opening period of the season, but you would expect his fortunes to change soon. That could happen this weekend, when they host a hapless Burnley team who cannot stop conceding.

While the Leicester squad may be slightly fatigued after travelling to Thailand for the funeral of owner  Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, you would still expect them to come out on top in this game. Leicester have a favourable run of fixtures over the coming weeks, and Vardy's form may turn around as a result.

Fantasy Premier League - Who To Avoid

Bournemouth

Bournemouth have performed incredibly well so far this season, but you would expect their form to regress at some stage. The loss to Manchester United last week was unfortunate, but their fixtures are not getting any easier over the coming games.

They will face Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool over the next five gameweeks, with a tricky trip to Newcastle on Saturday. They could experience a dip in form, and Callum Wilson might find it tricky to continue his goalscoring exploits.

Romelu Lukaku

Fantasy Premier League Tips

Lukaku has missed United's last couple of games due to injury, but he is rated as a 75% chance to be fit for this weekend's Manchester derby. Even if he does recover in time, you would not fancy him to end his scoreless run on Sunday.

The Belgian has notoriously struggled to find the back of the net against top is sides in recent years, and that lack of scoring touch has now extended to lesser opponents as well. Without a goal since mid-September, Lukaku's barren spell will likely continue a little longer.

Theo Walcott

Walcott has been a non-factor for Everton in recent weeks, and his decent start to the season seems like a distant memory at this stage. He is without a goal since the third game of the season, and does not really look like ending that run anytime soon.

His place in the Everton starting XI is definitely under threat, and now might be the right time to cut your losses on the former-Arsenal man.
