fpl gw15 tips

A busy Fantasy Premier League schedule continues with Gameweek 15. Let’s prepare our squads for the next round with our FPL GW15 Tips, with the best picks, fixtures, transfer targets, odds, captain picks, and team selection.

1. Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 15 Tips

  • Bench order: In this busy schedule it is extremely important to have the bench ordered correctly – in order to maximize potential points from bench players. Check our guide here: How to order your bench in FPL?
  • Do not forget that GW18 will be a blank gameweek
  • Focus on Newcastle, Arsenal, West Ham, and Liverpool players. Newcastle and Chelsea have great fixture swings on the horizon, which opens some opportunities.
  • The first round of FPL Cup starts in Gameweek 15


  • Gordon’s injury should not be serious
  • Unfortunately, Nick Pope injury might require surgery, Dubravka (3.9m) could be a good FPL asset to own, if Pope is out for a couple of months. However, there are rumours Newcastle could appoint new goalkeeper, and De Gea is open to a transfer. But until transfer windows open on January 1st, Dubravka should be a safe pick.
  • Jose Sa’s injury is likely not serious

2. Key players to pick and transfer tips for FPL GW15

Key players to pick

  • Mbeumo – excellent stats, great fixtures until the blank gameweek.
  • Bowen/Kudus

Transfer targets
