Many FPL managers will be worrying about potential FPL Gameweek 11 price changes this week. The transfer deadline is 11am on Saturday morning, and we have predicted some potential price rises and falls to look out for, in case they affect your budget.
FPL Gameweek 11 Price Changes: Predicted price rises
Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal) – £5.5m
With Gabriel Jesus injured, Nketiah was given the chance to lead the line for Arsenal against Sheffield United on Saturday. The Englishman bagged a hat-trick, his first in the Premier League, and earned a whopping 17 FPL points.
Unsurprisingly, he was Gameweek 10's top scorer, and is already the most transferred in player ahead of Gameweek 11. This translates to a likely price rise, and with a favourable fixture run after Newcastle United away next Saturday, Nketiah is a great enabler for managers who own expensive assets like Erling Haaland (£14.0m), Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m).
Next three fixtures: Newcastle (A), Burnley (H), Brentford (A)
Kostas Tsimikas (Liverpool) – £4.5m
Due to Andy Robertson's injury, left-back Tsimikas has started Liverpool's last two fixtures. He has picked up clean sheets in both, and 12 FPL points. Popular defenders like Destiny Udogie (£4.9m) and Gabriel (£4.8m) did not start in Gameweek 10, so FPL managers could be looking for a change in defence, with Tsimikas the second-most transferred in defender this week.
Aside from Manchester City away in Gameweek 13, Liverpool have a tempting fixture run against teams predominantly in the bottom half of the table, which could mean more clean sheets and potential attacking returns for Tsimikas, who also takes some set-pieces. We recommended owning him in our FPL Gameweek 10: Best Wildcard team, and if you do not already, you need to seriously think about transferring Tsimikas in before his price potentially starts to spike.
Next three fixtures: Luton (A), Brentford (H), Man City (A)
FPL Gameweek 11 Price Changes: Predicted price falls
Kieran Trippier (Newcastle) – £7.0m
Trippier scored a rare ‘zero' in Gameweek 10, as he conceded two goals while also getting booked. Arsenal, still unbeaten in the league, looks a daunting test on Saturday, even at St. James' Park, so FPL managers could be looking to sell and spread the funds elsewhere.
Newcastle also have to play three more of the traditional ‘big six' in Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur over the next six gameweeks, and so the potential for clean sheets (and four extra points) is low for Trippier.
Next three fixtures: Arsenal (H), Bournemouth (A), Chelsea (H)
Pedro Neto (Wolves) – £5.8m
Neto pulled up with a hamstring injury against Newcastle on Saturday, and so could be out for a few weeks. With eight FPL assists at three points each, he unsurprisingly ranks highest of all players in this category, and has proven to be a great FPL asset to own.
However, with his injury, many FPL managers could bite the bullet and sell Neto, and he is the fourth-most sold player this week. Unfortunately, this means a likely price drop.
Next three fixtures: Sheffield United (A), Tottenham (H), Fulham (A)
FPL Gameweek 11 Price Changes: A useful tip
A useful tip when predicting which players will rise and drop in price ahead of a gameweek is to research who is most transferred in and out that week. If a player is highly transferred in, a price rise is likely, and vice versa.
