Daily Fantasy Premier League Preview: 23 Sep

daily fantasy premier league picks week 6

After a blockbuster Saturday of games, Sunday is here with a couple of crackers in the capital to close the round out.

PlayON is here too, with daily fantasy offerings to keep you interested even if none of the below are your teams. To attempt to make the day profitable and not just interesting, I have chosen the players you want in your sides to bring home the prizes.

West Ham v. Chelsea

Along with Liverpool, Chelsea continued their 100% start last out by thrashing Cardiff. The Hammers halted their poor start with a win at Everton and will look to progress that run in this one.

It will be tough though. The Blues are scoring nearly three a game and look in red-hot form. This one has been tight recently however, with two draws, a Hammers’ win and two Chelsea wins in the last five – all with no more than one goal between the sides. Scope then to bring in players on both sides for this one.


This is a no brainer. Eden Hazard (£15.7m). Hat-trick and 4100 points last week. 2000 average. Chelsea on form. A must-have!

Value Pick

On the basis that both sides tend to score in this, you would look at the most likely to bag a goal on each side. Hazard the obvious choice for the Blues and Marko Arnautovic (£11m) fills that role for the Hammers.

Three goals and an assist so far, West Ham have only scored one goal in which the Austrian has not been involved. Solid form.

Arsenal v. Everton

Closing out round six sees Everton travel to London. Contrasting fortunes for these two – Arsenal have won three in a row while Everton have not won in the same period. Both sides have had a knack for scoring and conceding so far and neither has a clean sheet to their name yet.

The Gunners smashed the Toffees in both of these fixtures last year, with a 5-1 and 5-2 thrashing home and away. Another one where you can see goals for both sides, but if forced into defenders from either, it would be those in red for me.


Back from suspension, I would be remiss not to include the player with the highest average of all PlayON players.

Richarlison (£8.7m) averages 2500 after three goals in his first two games. His sending off in round three has seen him become a bit cheaper as well and if he can pick up where he left off (in terms of scoring, not getting sent off!) he is an absolute bargain.

Tough opposition might scare you away, but Everton seem to score in most games at least so he would be a good chance for a goal.

Value Pick

Having flagged him as a POD last week, he put a great free kick away against Newcastle and scored over 2000, bringing his average to 945. At just £8.2m, that makes Granit Xhaka something of a steal.

Likely to continue on set pieces, bringing more goals and assists into play, the Swiss has also played the full 90 three weeks in a row. Jump on board!

POD Pick

An average under 1000, price around £15m and shocker of a 370 last time. There will be many put off by the fact Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£14.9m) still costs so much.

My own faith is close to starting to wane slightly, but for now I still believe in his past goalscoring form and reckon it is only a matter of time until he is back there. A goal and assist over the last two suggest so.

If he does fire this week, there is a good chance he won’t be in many teams when he does.


And just like that, another week is done and we are very much flying now. Get to the Games Lobby to enter your sides and hold onto your winnings for next week’s games.

Good luck!
