Using our own team as a template (which you can follow each week via our free newsletter) we've made some dummy transfers to create the team we'd like to own right now and ahead of DGW37. Note it is not a best team for just this one gameweek, but also keeps one eye on the final round of games this season (e.g. keeping hold of Suarez). The team is based on our own budget and is therefore a realistically affordable one. We'd need to make 5 transfers at a cost of 20 points to get this team for ourselves (which 'aint gonna happen!).
Defence & GK
The back four is totally dominated by players with a double gameweek in GW37 because... we can. Sunderland's clean sheet potential in their two games is only so-so but their players are still dirt cheap. Mannone would be our the first choice from the Black Cats over Alonso, his admirable save points mediating any loss of a clean sheet. The big money in defence is spent on Phil Jones and Martin Demichellis, although these two represent the cheapest secure options from their respective teams and won't break the bank.
The big bucks are spent on Yaya Toure and Juan Mata, the two midfielders dominating the fantasy transfer market this week. Admittedly, acquiring both these big hitters would stretch your budget to the max, and this kind of luxury highlights the importance of monitoring the FPL's very aggressive price rises and of managing your team value throughout the season.
Adam Johnson feels like a rather uninspiring DGW pick but Sunderland's late revival has seen them playing well. His selection owes as much to another decent home game with Swansea in GW38. Other double gameweek candidates like Amalfitano (WBA), Huddlestone (Hull) and someone (Aston Villa) appeal only with tighter budget constraints in my mind. Amalfitao would be our pick of these budget players.
Christian Eriksen gets the fourth midfield slot and makes the team despite no double fixture. His chief rival for this place was Aaron Ramsey. We've favoured Eriksen due to marginally better fixtures but mainly for his role on set pieces for Spurs which keeps him constantly in the mix for fantasy points whatever the fixture or performance.
We can't ignore the elite trio of forwards. Wayne Rooney and Sergio Aguero are must haves in our eyes for their teams double in GW37. And it seems with just two gameweeks remaining Luis Suarez essential status is under threat. We'd agree that it is no longer essential to have him in your team, perhaps Fabio Borini or even Connor Wickham would be a better bet for GW37. But we keep Suarez in this team for Liverpool's last game of the season at home against Newcastle where he'll likely be the best captain candidate once again - we would not want to be without him.
