FPL Gameweek 13 transfer tips by Fantasy Premier League author David Wardale. He suggests the best FPL transfer targets, from the obvious to the obscure.

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Tips for Gameweek 11 | The Ultimate Guide | 2021/22

FPL Gameweek 13 Best Transfer Tips – The Premium

Sergio Reguilon (£5.1m)

After two league matches under Antonio Conte, who leads the way at Spurs for shots in the box (four) and big chances (two)?

It’s not Harry Kane (£12.2m), although he is joint-top for that first stat.

But the striker can’t even beat this teammate for xG (0.64 v 0.86), which is astonishing when you consider the mystery man is a defender.

You’ve guessed that it’s Reguilon, haven’t you? His name, after all, started this piece.

Conte loves his wing-backs – even Ben Davies (£4.4m) is punching above his weight for xG (0.46) – but Reguilon offers the full attacking package, with a goal last time out and his two key passes being the second highest total in the team.

The right wing-back has brought in 14 points from those two Conte games, which is joint-top with Eric Dier (£4.5m).

For those of you on a tight budget, the centre-half or Davies look like sound investments with a short-term schedule involving Burnley, Brentford, Norwich and Brighton.

But if you’ve got the money, Reguilon is your man for the chance of returns at both ends of the pitch.

FPL Gameweek 13 Best Transfer Tips – The Potentials

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m)

Since his first start in Gameweek 3, Aubameyang is top for shots (25) and attempts on target (12) and in the box (19) among Arsenal players.

He also leads the way for big chances (six) and is joint-top with Emile Smith-Rowe (£5.9m) for goals (four).

But while the young midfielder is massively out-performing his xG of 1.60, Aubameyang is off the pace compared to his 4.85 projection.

A visit from Newcastle might help.

Aubameyang’s stats

Eddie Howe’s side might have found a cutting edge in their 3-3 draw with Brentford, but they still shipped three goals and were especially vulnerable through the middle, with 44% of the chances conceded coming centrally.

That should play into the hands of the Arsenal striker, who has generally operated in the middle this season.

His price tag might be off-putting, but Aubameyang is worth keeping for a few weeks and with a 4.2% ownership, he’s prime differential material as well.

Following Newcastle, the Gunners will face a troubled Man United and an injury-hit Everton. They’ll also host a Southampton side that’s won just once in six away matches this campaign.

 

OPTA Stats for Fantasy Football

Christian Benteke (£6.3m)

Four starts, four goals – the stats don’t lie with the big fella up front at Crystal Palace.

Only the freakish Mo Salah (£13.0m) can beat him for goals over the last five matches – Benteke was given a 25-minute cameo from the bench in Gameweek 10 – and it’s the same story for total shots (20 v 18) and attempts on target (10 v 8).

The Eagles forward does beat him for big chances (7 v 5), while they’re level for shots in the box (16).

Despite all that good stuff, Benteke has produced a fairly modest 26 points across that time, but a home match with Aston Villa will continue a run of promising fixtures through to the end of the year for Palace.

Yes, Villa kept a clean sheet to mark Steven Gerrard’s first match in charge.

But Palace at home have created 15 big chances this season – only four teams (which includes the top three) have managed more.

 

Predicted Points Tool

FPL Gameweek 13 Best Transfer Tips – The Punts

Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.8m)

Having talked down the Newcastle defence for the trip to Arsenal, it’s time to big up their attack for the very same fixture.

The Magpies fired in a gameweek-leading 23 shots against Brentford, with their nine attempts on target and 16 in the box also the most in the league over the weekend.

Little wonder, then, that the Newcastle forward was joint-top for shots (seven) as he scored one goal and set up another for a season’s-best 10-point haul.

That broke a five-match barren spell for Saint-Maximin, but he was remarkably consistent before that, with five returns from the first six gameweeks.

Arsenal have offered mixed messages defensively this season, with the 17 goals they’ve conceded a so-so figure, but the five clean sheets they’ve kept a rather more impressive tally.

Just two of those shut-outs have come at home, however, and Howe’s Newcastle look likely to be in attack mode again in Gameweek 13.

Saint-Maximim’s stats.

Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m)

A week on from suggesting Josh King (£5.6m) as a decent punt, it’s time to move on to this partner up top.

Dennis has been in fine form in recent weeks, with two double-digit hauls from his last three matches.

He now has four goals, five assists and 54 points this campaign – that’s the best return among Watford players and the fourth-highest total for a striker.

The Hornets travel to Leicester this Sunday for what will presumably be a bit of a love-in for ex-Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri.

But once that’s all died down, Leicester’s awful defensive record of just one clean sheet and a second-worst 21 goals conceded can be examined by the Watford attack.

It’s an offensive set-up that either goes big (nine goals scored across their last two wins) or goes home (three blanks in the last five gameweeks), but the Foxes’ backline looks ill-equipped to make it the latter scenario.
