Fantasy Premier League Rankings: Gameweek 38
Fantasy Premier League Rankings: Gameweek 38

This article is part of our Fantasy Premier League Rankings series.

The final gameweek of the 2018/19 season is finally here. To say this season has felt like an eternity is an understatement, though it's said every year at this time. Making things more exhausting were Liverpool and Tottenham's absolutely ridiculous Champions League comebacks against Barcelona and Ajax, respectively, this week. Left for dead, betters were basically throwing money away Monday taking the +4000 odds that both English teams would qualify for the UCL final. Down three goals to Barcelona, Liverpool won 4-0 without Mohamed Salah (concussion) and Roberto Firmino (groin) while Tottenham won 3-2 in Amsterdam thanks to a hat trick from Lucas Moura, who took on a much bigger role because Harry Kane continues to be sidelined with an ankle injury.

The two sides have very different situations Sunday, as Liverpool still have a legitimate shot at winning the Premier League title. A victory over Wolves would give them 97 points, which would be enough to claim the trophy if Manchester City fail to grab all three points away to Brighton. That being said, Man City are the biggest favorite of the week according to the oddsmakers. Meanwhile, Tottenham basically have a top-four spot solidified unless they lose and Arsenal beat Burnley by enough to make up an eight-goal differential. Needless to say, that's unlikely to happen.

Complicating matters a bit further, Arsenal and Chelsea play Europa League matches Thursday, with both teams favored to reach the UEL final. Chelsea already have a top-four spot locked up as they enter the final gameweek at 71 points, and Arsenal could qualify for next year's Champions League if they win this season's Europa League. Surely the two sides wouldn't have a backhand agreement to let Arsenal win for the financial windfall of five teams in the Champions League.

In terms of every other team, there's nothing to play for. Sure, these are professional athletes who want to compete at the highest levels and always win, but unless each player gets a cut of the check difference from the Premier League for finishing 12th instead of 13th, the monetary value of the respective table positions should mean nothing for the players. Convince yourself all you want that players want to finish 14th more than 15th, but I simply follow the idea that these guys always want to win.

With that being said, thank you for reading these rankings each gameweek this season. There are so many different ways to play fantasy Premier League and my goal was always to produce something that can be applicable to multiple formats while still staying true to the league's official game because it's the most popular one in the world by a long shot. That being said, I'm always reviewing our content and open to adding or changing what we offer, so if you have any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them; either post in the comments below, hit me up in our subscriber Discord chat or find me on Twitter @RotoWireAndrew. If we can do something better, I'd love to do it.
