Turkish Fantasy — Tips for Gameweek 27
While the Top-4 appears to be running away with the european spots, fantasy points continue to come from every area of the Süper Lig table.
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.
Ruud Boffin (Antalyaspor, Goalkeeper)
Antalyaspor’s Ruud Boffin’s been playing like Buffon this season. He is the top goalkeeper of Realfevr with 111 points in total. His impressive performance of 10 clean sheets in 23 games made him one of the favourites of fantasy footbll fans this season. He saved 2 penalties and made a total of 59 saves this season. Antalyaspor is again one of the strongest clean sheet candidates against Başakşehir who have been making below-par performances for so long. Antalyaspor has not been losing for 10 games and they just conceded 4 goals in last 8 games. So, we strongly recommend you to pick Boffin for your squads.
Key Stats (per game): Saves: 2.56 / Realfevr Points: 4.82
Alternative Pick: Fernando Muslera (Galatasaray, Goalkeeper) Total of 630 minutes / 4 clean sheets — 27 saves
Guilherme Sitya / Nejc Skubic (Konyaspor, Defender)
Konyaspor has won last two games with their new coach. The transformation seemed to work with new coach İlhan Palut. Two defense backs of Konyaspor gained 15 points in these two games. They are playing at home against Gaziantep FK this week. These two attacking backs are again suitable picks for fantasy football fans in terms of both clean sheet and attacking contribution.
Guilherme’s Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 1.8 / Shots: 0.5 / Key Passes: 1.4
Skubic’s Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.7 / Shots: 0.5 / Key Passes: 1.2
Alternative Pick: Valentin Rosier (Beşiktaş, Defender) Last 2 games / 1 goal — 1 assist — 2 clean sheets
Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray, Midfielder)
Henry Onyekuru’s 3rd loan period for Galatasaray started with his good performance of 2 goals in his debut. But after the first game, he scored only 1 goal in further 4 games. He has a huge potential to be disclosed and this week’s Erzurumspor game at home is a good opportunity for him. Since he has both goal and assist potential, we strongly recommend him you to pick him as a prior choice from Galatasaray.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 0.2 / Shots: 2.4 / Key Passes: 0.2
Alternative Pick: Halil Akbunar (Göztepe, Midfielder) Total of 2.111 minutes / 7 goals — 5 assists — 107 total points
Max Gradel (Sivasspor, Midfielder)
Sivasspor couldn’t perform very well neither in Turkish Süper Lig nor in European Cups at the beginning of the season. But after they eliminated from European Cups, both Sivasspor and Max Gradel increased their performances. Gradel has made 8 goals & 8 assists and earned 4 penalties so far in the league. He is the top points earned player in Realfevr fantasy football game with 120 points. Although Sivasspor will play against Rizespor at an away game, we think that they are closer to win the game than Rizespor. Max Gradel is the best choice for this game.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 1.3 / Shots: 2.3 / Key Passes: 1.7
Alternative Pick: Anastasios Bakasetas (Trabzonspor, Midfielder) Last 8 games / 6 goals
Karim Hafez (Yeni Malatyaspor, Defender)
As another effective attacking back of Turkish Süper Lig, fantasy football fans like to pick Karim Hafez in their squads. He mostly contributes for assist side since he also takes some of the set-pieces. Yeni Malatyaspor will play against Gençlerbirliği who had 7 loss and 1 draw in last 8 games. Karim Hafez is again a good choice for both his clean sheet and assist potential.
Key Stats (per game): Crosses: 1.8 / Shots: 0.7 / Key Passes: 1.3
Alternative Pick: Salih Uçan (Alanyaspor, Midfielder) Total of 1.573 minutes / 2 goals — 3 assists
Recommended Teams for Player Picks
After 1 week of non-fixture period, Beşiktaş will be back on the field against Denizlispor. As one of the best attacking teams of the league, Beşiktaş seems close to an easy win against Denizlispor. There is a wide pool of options for fantasy football fans. One of Aboubakar&Larin, one of Mensah&Atiba, one of Vida&Rosier and goalkeeper Ersin Destanoğlu are our main recommendations for this week’s game.
Galatasaray is topping the table but with playing one more game than Beşiktaş. They are the least goals conceded team and also top goalscoring second team within Turkish Süper Lig. Main factor behind that is their goalkeeper and striker have been performing very well in recent games. In addition, Onyekuru is also contributing significantly as well. So we strongly recommend these three players as prior picks. You might also pick Yedlin, Arda Turan and Emre Kılınç for your squads.
