DraftKings fantasy football is very similar to Fantasy Premier League (FPL), but does not require full-time commitment like FPL as it offers year round games that you can play as little or as much as you want. 

Here are our fix standout selections for the DraftKings' gameweek 36 daily contest (Saturday 27th April):

GK / Ryan / $5,100

Brighton host Newcastle in gameweek 36, an opportunity for the Seagulls to seal Premier League safety with a win. As always, our attention is focused on the saves potential of the keepers given the DraftKings’ point scoring system rewarding keepers with 2 points per save, on top of 5 for a clean sheet. The Australian has made 87 saves, the tenth highest in the league, racking up six clean sheets. Only three teams have scored fewer goals on their travels than Newcastle’s 13, and the Magpies have landed only 54 SoT, an average of three a game. Our Fix predicted points and stats feature suggests that Brighton have a 33% chance of a clean sheet and for additional informative data on Goalkeepers, see our bespoke DraftKings’ custom stats table here


D / Wan-Bissaka / $5,000

Palace host an Everton side that has lost two of their last three away matches, and their English right-back Wan-Bissaka is a great value pick for your DraftKings squad this weekend. No defender averages more tackles won (+1 point in DraftKings) than Wan-Bissaka’s 2.7, he also averages 1.7 crosses per game (+0.75 points in DraftKings) and 2.5 interceptions (+0.5 in DraftKings), indicating his multiple routes for points. Palace have kept eleven clean sheets this season, the sixth highest in the league. Our Fix predicted points and stats feature estimates a 31% probability of Palace keeping a clean sheet this week and for more data like this you can access this custom stats table here


M / Fraser / $9,000

Bournemouth visit a Southampton side that has kept just one clean sheet in the last six gameweeks, and will be looking to get back to winning ways after their loss against Fulham. Only Ritchie has averaged more crosses (+0.75 points in DraftKings) per match than Fraser’s 6.5, and the diminutive winger also averages an expected assist (+6 points in DraftKings) nearly every other game with 0.4, and 1.3 shots (+1 point in DraftKings) per match. Our Fix predicted points and stats feature predicts Southampton to have only a 28% probability of a clean sheet this weekend, so the Scot represents a great value option, and for more data like this you can access this custom stats table here.   


F / Jiménez / $7,600

Wolves will be looking to avenge their FA Cup Semi-final defeat at the hands of Watford and given that the Hornets have shipped nine goals in their last six matches, Jiménez is our forward recommendation for this week. He averages 0.7 crosses (+1 point in DraftKings), 2.9 shots and 0.9 SoT per game, and has racked up 12 goals and 10 assists already. Wolves have scored seven goals in their last six matches, creating eight ‘big chances’ and landing 14 SoT. Our Fix predicted points and stats feature estimates only a 38% probability of a Watford clean sheet, and for more data like this you can access this custom stats table here.


How to play DraftKings Fantasy Football

For those unaccustomed to this fantastic daily cash game, you are required to select eight players with a $50,000 salary cap. The structure is as follows;

GK -- D x2 -- M x2 -- F x2 -- UTIL (utility player)

The utility player can be either a D (Defender), M (Midfielder) or F (Forward) and will score points in the same way as the other selections. However, you will notice your budget has been spread thin, so, this is all about finding a hidden gem that could score well. For example, a defender that is not typically a big scorer but is playing against a team that struggle to score, therefore heightening the chance of (clean sheet, tackles won, passed intercepted etc.) points.

The format allows you the luxury of entering into a variety of contests including beginner tournaments/leagues, head to heads (against one other opponent), 50/50s (where you win if you finish in the top half) and many more.

The full scoring breakdown is as follows:
