7 Fantasy Premier League Tips For Gameweek 18

7 Fantasy Premier League Tips For Gameweek 18

With a cracking slate of games set to take place this weekend, we have put together our Fantasy Premier League tips for gameweek 18.

There are a few potential bargains to be had, with one or two players set to have a big week. Here's what we came up with.

Fantasy Premier League Tips

Harry Kane (Spurs) - £10.9m

Jose Mourinho will be looking to get one over on one of his former players this weekend when Spurs host Frank Lampard's Chelsea. Harry Kane has made a habit of scoring in London derbies, a record you would fancy him to extend against a porous Chelsea defence.

He is pricey, but he could be an addition worth making this week.

Martin Dubravka (Newcastle United) - £5.0m

Newcastle are level on points with Arsenal. Who would have thought that at the start of the season?

Much of their good form has been down to a strong defence, with Steve Bruce's side less goals than any other side in the bottom half. They will welcome Crystal Palace to St. James' Park on Saturday, a team who can struggle in front of goal.

We're backing Martin Dubravka to keep a clean sheet.

Adama Traore (Wolves) - £5.3m

After going through patches of form throughout his career it seems that Adama Traore has finally found the consistency that had previously been lacking. He has formed an excellent partnership with Matt Doherty on the right flank, and has been scoring at a consistent rate.

That could be bad news for Norwich who have been shipping goals at a massive rate.

Mason Greenwood (Manchester United) - £4.3m

Mason Greenwood has established himself as an important player at Manchester United this season. Despite being only 17-years old, he has had no trouble in finding the back of the net.

If he is given an opportunity against Watford this week you would fancy him to do well against the league's bottom side. He's a potential bargain.

Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) - £6.9m

Bournemouth put themselves back on track with a win over Chelsea last week and they will fancy themselves at home against Burnley this weekend.

Ryan Fraser has not managed to replicate the form he displayed last season, but he is still a key player for Eddie Howe. With Callum Wilson out, and Harry Wilson and Joshua King both doubts, he will be asked to carry more of the attacking load.

Lewis Dunk (Brighton) - £4.7m

Shane Duffy has struggled to get into the Brighton team this season, but you certainly couldn't argue with Lewis Dunk's inclusion. He has been in excellent form this season and is a real bargain at that price.

Sheffield United are in excellent form, but they don't score all that many goals. Brighton could keep a clean sheet at home in their meeting this weekend.

John McGinn (Aston Villa) - £5.7m

Saturday's meeting with Southampton feels like a must-win game for Aston Villa. They have been on a slide as of late and a defeat here would leave them in the relegation zone and three points adrift from safety.

John McGinn has made a habit of scoring important goals ever since his move to Villa Park, and this game is certainly set up for him to deliver. It doesn't hurt that Southampton also have the worst defence in the Premier League.
