Fantasy Premier League: Top Picks For Gameweek 16

The Fantasy Premier League is back in action for Gameweek 16 just after the midweek games of Gameweek 15. Managers have no time to rest and they are busy making adjustments to their squad and hoping that their key players will give them returns in the coming gameweek. Hwang Hee-Chan and Cole Palmer have been the most popular player chosen by managers for Gameweek 16 so far. But who are the top recommendations for this week?

Let’s take a look at the 5 players to target in Gameweek 16:

Kaoru Mitoma – Brighton

Kaoru Mitoma, valued at 6.5m for Brighton, looks to extend his recent form in their upcoming home match against Burnley. He contributed his second assist in the Seagulls’ midweek victory over Brentford, showcasing his improving performance. At home this season, his 12 shots inside the box and 14 key passes rank second among teammates, emphasizing his versatile threat against Burnley, who have only kept a single clean sheet this season.

Darwin Nunez – Liverpool

Darwin Nunez, priced at 7.7m for Liverpool, ended a series of blanks by providing an assist off the bench in Liverpool’s win against Sheffield United. With expectations to return to the starting lineup against Crystal Palace, his recent stats of eight shots inside the box and five shots on target, identical to Mohamed Salah’s numbers in the last four Gameweeks, highlight his goal-scoring potential. Palace’s defensive struggles at Selhurst Park add to his prospects.

Alejandro Garnacho – Manchester United

Valued at 4.7m, Alejandro Garnacho from Manchester United becomes a valuable FPL asset in their home encounter with AFC Bournemouth. With starts in the last five Gameweeks, he’s contributed with a goal and an assist. His leading team stats in shots (14) and shots inside the box (13) in that period, along with nine chances created, make him an affordable yet impactful choice for FPL managers.

Gabriel Jesus – Arsenal

Gabriel Jesus, priced at 7.9m for Arsenal, has shown good form with two goals and two assists in the team’s recent fixtures. Over the last three Gameweeks, he stands out as Arsenal’s primary attacking threat, leading in shots inside the box (nine) and big chances (three). With ownership under five percent, he represents a significant differential for Fantasy managers wanting to change their forward lines before Arsenal’s match against Aston Villa.

Willian – Fulham

Moving to Willian, valued at 5.3m for Fulham, he gears up to face West Ham United in impressive home form. He’s collected 21 Fantasy points across Fulham’s last two Craven Cottage matches, scoring twice and providing an assist. Since his first start in Gameweek 5, his impressive stats – 21 shots, 12 shots inside the box, 10 shots on target, and 18 key passes – all place him among Fulham’s top two players. This highlights Willian’s versatility and makes him a promising choice as Fulham has netted eight goals in their recent two home matches.
