FPL Gameweek 30: Tips, Captain, Transfer Targets & Team

A big Fantasy Premier League double gameweek is almost over so we can start planning for Gameweek 30 and onwards. There are two single gameweeks ahead so we can play FPL without additional stress from additional fixtures (or blank fixtures).

So, without further ado, let’s look at FPL GW30 Tips, where we discuss best picks, fixtures to target, transfer targets, captain, differentials, odds & team selection.

1. Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 30 Tips

  • Fixtures for double gameweek 34 were announced. Check them in our article: When is the next double gameweek in FPL?
  • Make sure you plan for blank gameweek 32 – will you use free hit? If not, plan your transfers with GW32 blank in mind
  • Monitor the situation around Haaland. If you plan to use free hit in GW32, Haaland could be your number one transfer target for Gameweek 30, if he is fit
  • If you plan to manage blank GW32 with free transfers, Haaland is not necessarily your number 1 transfer target. You should focus more on players who have fixture in GW32
  • If you plan to use free hit in Gameweek 32, you should plan/make your transfers with double gameweek 34 on mind

2. Key players to own and transfer targets for GW30

  • Haaland – if fit, then he is the number 1 transfer target for GW32 free hitters
  • Trippier – top scoring defender
  • Kane – backup captain for GW30, if Haaland is not fit
  • Arsenal attacking players – Liverpool’s defence is shaky. And you want best players from best teams in your team regardless the fixture
  • Watkins/Toney – good form, solid fixtures ahead, and both have matches in blank GW32
  • Manchester City defending player – Dias/Ederson/Aké – for those managers who aim to free hit in GW32
  • Rashford

Potential transfer targets:

  1. Haaland (GW32 free hit)
  2. Dias (GW32 free hit)
  3. De Bruyne (GW32 free hit)
  4. Jesus
  5. Mings – excellent next 4 fixtures for Villa

3. Fixtures to target in Gameweek 30

In which fixtures we could expect a lot of fantasy points? Fixtures to target in double GW30 according to bookies odds:

  • Southampton vs. Manchester City: Citizens 77 % to win, 44 % to score 2.5+ goals
  • Manchester United vs Everton: Red Devils 66 % to win, 33 % to score 2.5+ goals
  • Aston Villa vs Nottingham: Aston Villa 58 % to win, 26 % to score 2.5+ goals
  • Leicester vs Bournemouth: Foxes 55 % to win, 26 % to score 2.5+ goals

4. Differential for GW30

Konsa (Aston Villa, 4.4m)

  • owned only by 0.5 % of FPL managers
  • differential for the next 4 gameweek where Aston Villa have nice run of fixtures
  • this season without an attacking return – bur in the last 3 seasons registered at least 2 attacking returns

5. Best captain pick in FPL GW30

If Haaland is fit, then he is obvious captain pick for Gameweek 30. If not, you could go with Rashord or Kane who will be popular captaincy picks in case Norwegian misses the game.

However, if you are looking for a differential captain, you could consider to captain Watkins who is in great form and Aston Villa have good fixture against Nottingham Forrest,

6. Using Chips in Gameweek 30

We do not plan to use any chip in Gameweek 30 – we are saving our free hit for blank Gameweek 32. However, if your team is in bad shape, you could possibly use your wildcard. But be careful, design your wildcard team with blank gameweek 32 and double gameweek 34 fixtures in mind. You can find our GW30 Wildcard draft here:
