Under the Radar – Gameweek 22

Transfers become increasingly important towards the end of the season and it’s also crucial to have a few differentials within your side to set you apart from all the other template teams, something that is a huge issue this year. Once again, 2 players will be called up to feature in my under the radar article and hopefully, after this analysis, your FPL side as well.

So let’s begin.


Budget forwards have been vital so far this year and it is always important to stay ahead of the game in this area. One player who I think can be the perfect budget buy is Palace forward Dwight Gayle. Renowned for his second half cameos that result in double digit FPL returns, Gayle is likely to get a solid run of games under new boss Alan Pardew. His first league start since November came at the weekend when Palace beat Spurs 2-1. Gayle got his goal and with 4 goal attempts, showing what a massive threat he can be. A good run of games for Palace coupled with a new ‘direct and attacking’ style of play implemented by Pardew should result in a heap of goals for the Eagles. Despite the loan signing of Sanogo, Gayle still looks set to get a run of games and I’m sure he’ll be their main source of goals. With just a 0.4% ownership, Gayle is ideal to partner two ‘big money’ strikers in your January wildcard sides – your call!


A difficult start to his Liverpool career meant Markovic couldn’t make the impact, at Anfield, which he so desired. However, a first Premier League start against Sunderland last weekend saw him grab a goal, as well as being involved in 4 goal attempts. A fairly high price tag makes Markovic a big risk, but if he can maintain this form he is likely to produce the goods in the short term. I think Liverpool can return to winning ways in the coming weeks and this means a lot of goals for the Reds. Again, a big risk but one that will pay off MASSIVELY.

That wraps up gameweek 22’s under the radar article. Good luck and see you next time.
