Anyway, let’s get on with our DFF tips for FanDuel in GW30:

Cheap FanDuel Goalkeeper Tips

Ben Foster £6.9m (West Brom)

With goalkeepers receiving 3 points per save on FanDuel, it often pays to draft a keeper who will be extremely busy throughout their match. Although this often means that they won’t get their 10 point clean-sheet bonus, a busy keeper should be able to more than make up for this in save bonuses.

This weekend, Ben Foster makes our DFF tips due to his tough away trip to Manchester United. United have been inundating visiting keepers with shots all season despite dropping many points at home, and thus, we feel that Foster is the best FanDuel tip for GW30

Cheap FanDuel Defender Tips

Mason Holgate £6.5m (Everton)

With Seamus Coleman suffering that horrific leg break whilst on international duty with Ireland, Mason Holgate is expected to slot in at right-back as his replacement.

Defenders on FanDuel do not receive a clean-sheet bonus and instead earn their points predominantly through blocks, tackles, interceptions and clearances. This means that Everton’s tough away fixture to Liverpool in the Merseyside derby should provide Holgate with loads of opportunities to earn FanDuel points.

At just £6.5m, he is also one of the cheapest ‘likely starters’ amongst Premier League defences this coming weekend.


James Tomkins £7.1m (Crystal Palace)

As with Holgate, Tomkins is set to face an incredibly tough match in GW30 as his Palace side travel to league leaders Chelsea. This should give him many opportunities to earn points through blocks, tackles, interceptions and clearances.

His price-tag also makes him the cheapest option in Palace’s backline and will allow you to preserve as much of your £100m budget as you can for strong attacking picks. His average points per game (PPG) so far this season is a very reasonable 15.60 – however he could improve on that this weekend.

Cheap FanDuel Midfielder Tips

Riyad Mahrez £10.0m (Leicester City)

After an incredible 2015/16 campaign, Mahrez struggled to make an impact under Claudio Ranieri’s tenure this season. However, since his sacking just weeks ago, both Mahrez and his Leicester team mates have looked like the side that won the Premier League just 10 months ago.

Mahrez has managed to net in both of their last 2 fixtures, bagging him FanDuel scores of 38.5 and 32 respectively.

This weekend’s home fixture against a mediocre Stoke City side should see him put in another impressive display.

Manuel Lanzini £8.8m (West Ham)

The West Ham midfielder makes our DFF tips for FanDuel this weekend thanks to his impressive recent form that’s seen him net scores of 31.25, 31.5 and 47 all within his last 5 matches.

He’s scored 3 goals within those matches, meanwhile this weekend’s away fixture against Hull City (who have the second worst defensive record in the division) should provide him with further opportunities to bag a goal or an assist at least.

Cheap FanDuel Forward Tips

Jamie Vardy £9.3m (Leicester City)

As mentioned earlier, Leicester have been totally revitalised by the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, as as such, another of last season’s fantasy football favourites is now looking like an excellent tip once again.

Jamie Vardy has scored 3 goals and managed a further 2 assists in his last 3 Premier League matches, and with Stoke City at home this weekend, we think he looks like an excellent DFF tip for GW30.

Leicester are buoyed by their return to form, meanwhile Stoke are in danger of slipping into that mid-table, end-of-season cruise control that affects so many teams in their position at this stage of the season. We can only see this fixture going one way, and Vardy should be at the heart of most things that Leicester do.

Manolo Gabbiadini £9.3m (Southampton)

Seeing as FanDuel allows you to make transfers in your side right up until a match kicks off, Gabbiadini looks like an excellent choice for our FanDuel tips providing that he is declared fit and makes the starting 11.

With 4 goals in his first 3 Premier League games since joining from Napoli in January (plus a further 1 in their EFL Cup final defeat to Man Utd), Gabbiadini has been in superb form for the Saints.

Their opponents this weekend are Bournemouth at home, with the visitors having one of the worst defensive records in the league. This should present Gabbiadini with a number of goalscoring opportunities – meanwhile his price of £9.3m is also highly competitive in relation to other reasonable options.
