The cream of the crop. The very best of the best. Every gameweek. Just for you. Now go, and transfer wisely.
Below you’ll find the crème de la crème of this week’s fantasy studs, provided to you by the masterminds behind Fantezi Futbol Türkiye.
Altay Bayındır / Muammer Yıldırım (Fenerbahçe / Sivasspor, Goalkeeper)
According to the bookmakers’ odds, Fenerbahçe and Sivasspor are the strongest candidates for clean sheet in GW26. Altay Bayındır has been pursuing his impressive performance this season. He had 7 clean sheets in 2.070 minutes of play. He made 64 saves including 2 penalty saves. We expect another clean sheet from him against Göztepe. Muammer Yıldırım might be another option for GW26. He played in last 2 games and made 1 clean sheet with 9 saves. He is another strong clean sheet candidate against Kayserispor.
Altay’s Key Stats (per game): Saves: 2.78 / Realfevr Points: 4.48
Muammer’s Key Stats (per game): Saves: 4.50 / Realfevr Points: 6.00
Alternative Pick: Günay Güvenç (Gaziantep FK, Goalkeeper) Total 2.154 minutes, 5 clean sheets — 82 saves
Papy Djilobodji (Gaziantep FK, Defender)
Senegalese defender has been performing very well since he joined Gaziantep FK as of 2019–2020. He has been one of the favourite picks of the fantasy football fans as he played OOP in some of the games. Their opponent Antalyaspor is one of the less effective team in the attacking side of the play. Their away performance is also below-par. So, Djilobodji might be perfect pick in terms of both clean sheet and also for possible attacking contribution.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.8 / Shots: 0.6 / Key Passes: 0.2
Alternative Pick: Caner Erkin (Fenerbahçe, Defender) Total 1.693 minutes, 6 assists — 6 clean sheets
Alassane Ndao / Lucas Biglia / Fabio Borini (Fatih Karagümrük, Midfielder)
Three musketeers of Fatih Karagümrük are the main factor for the team to settle in a position within first 8 rankings. They have 13 goals and 6 assists together. It’s difficult to pick one of these players since they have different strong sides comparing to each other. Ndao is the the one who has the most goals and assists. Biglia is the penalty taker and Borini is the most effective one with 4 goals in 779 minutes. You may decide which of them you’ll include in your squad against Kasımpaşa.
Ndao’s Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.4 / Shots: 1.5 / Key Passes: 1.3
Biglia’s Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.5 / Shots: 1.0 / Key Passes: 1.3
Borini’s Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.2 / Shots: 2.3 / Key Passes: 0.4
Alternative Pick: Max Gradel (Sivasspor, Midfielder) Total 1.987 minutes 7 goals — 7 assists
Hugo Rodallega (Denizlispor, Forward)
Denizlispor is one of the strongest candidates for the relegation. It’s really difficult for them to pursue in Turkish Süper Lig next year. However, Gençlerbirliği game is one of the remaining games that they can manage to win. Gençlerbirliği has also been making below-par performances. They haven’t scored in 5 out of last 7 games and lost 5 of these games. Hugo Rodallega is at the 4th place in players with most shots stats. We expect him to make a significant contribution in this game.
Key Stats (per game): Shots: 2.8 / Key Passes: 1.0
Alternative Pick: Mostafa Mohamed (Galatasaray, Forward) Total 180 minutes 2 goals
Djaniny (Trabzonspor, Forward)
Djaniny has started to play as a regular starting eleven player since GW13. He has 3 goals so far this season. Although he is behind his team-mates in terms of attacking stats, he is playing very useful and helps Ekuban, Nwakaeme and Bakasetas to contribute more. They will play against Başakşehir who are the most goals conceded team in the league. Djaniny might be a surprise pick this week.
Key Stats (per game): Shots: 2.0 / Key Passes: 0.9
Alternative Pick: Gökdeniz Bayrakdar (Antalyaspor, Midfielder) Total 1.199 minutes 5 goals
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
Fenerbahçe is one of the three teams who are topping the table with 51 points. Their injured players are being recovered one by one. They strengthened their midfield by the world-class transfer of Mesut Özil and added him to the star players pool including other midfielders like Pelkas, İrfan Can Kahveci and Luiz Gustavo in their squad. We expect them to win against Göztepe who are one of the average teams in the league. Mesut Özil, Mame Thiam and Enner Valencia might be suitable picks for this game.
Sivasspor has not been losing at home for a while. Kayserispor are the least goalscoring team in the league with 17 goals in 24 games. Sivasspor is very close to an easy win. Max Gradel, Uğur Çiftçi, Muammer Yıldırım and Moustapha Yatabare might be suitable picks. Erdoğan Yeşilyurt might be considered as a surprise pick.
