Six weeks in, and it's time to start getting ruthless.

Key injuries across the pitch to several massive players also suggest there's never been a better time to fine-tune your EPL Fantasy Football squad.

Here's our Gameweek 6 FPL tips.

RealSport101 Fantasy Premier League!

Before we start, for those of you who are thinking about playing this year, why not join the RealSport101 Fantasy Premier League?

There will be plenty to play for throughout the course of the FPL season, with the overall winner taking home a copy of FIFA 22 on the platform of their choosing.

The code to join the league is “4mqenx“.

Goalkeepers

It's become abundantly clear in the past five weeks that defenders and keepers haven't got a hope in hell of keeping clean sheets right now.

A lack of a proper pre-season means your defense is going to take a hit. We saw our first 0-0 of the season last week so we could start to see a bit more solidity.

But in truth, it's arguably the best time to buy cheap and cross your fingers.

Star Signing – Emiliano Martinez (£4.8m)

We can't stop singing Emi's praises and who can blame us after another solid game against Leicester.

At under 5m, makes Martinez the default choice in goal.

Bargain Buy – Adrian (£4.5m)

Right, ok, hear us out.

Adrian ain't great. He's certainly not at the level of Allison or where Liverpool need to be.

But with Van Dijk out until next season, you'd like to think Liverpool might retreat slightly and focus on their defence.

At £4.5m, a guaranteed starter, and ultimately playing for the current Premier League Champions, you'd have to bank on there being a couple of clean sheets somewhere around the corner.

Defenders

Same with your goalkeeper, you might as well rule out clean sheets until the squads can start keeping the goals out.

Right now, that might not be anytime soon. So either buy cheap, or pick defenders with good attacking returns.

Star Signing – Lucas Digne (£6.2m)

Everton's left-back has three assists so far this season.

With Southampton, Newcastle and Manchester United in the next three weeks, there's plenty of opportunities for attacking returns. Not least with Dominic Calvert Lewin up top.

Bargain Buy – Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m)

I'm back once again to endorse Tyrick Mitchell, a bargain at just 4.1.

He might only have earned two points in the last three games (Everton, Chelsea and Brighton) but he's played every minute.

Plus, with the likes of Fulham, Wolves and Leeds to come, this is a cheap differential worth having either in the starting XI, or on the bench.

Midfielders

We all know everyone has got Son and Salah in their team, but who else can you pair them alongside to really make the difference?

Star Signing – Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m)

Zaha ain't cheap, let's make no mistake. But he is a decent differential who has scored 4 goals so far this campaign.

With a fixture list from now until mid-Decenmber that looks favourable, this could be a worthwhile purchase, especially if he maintains the form he's currently in.

Bargain Buy – Ross Barkley (£5.9m)

Two goals in two games. You can't ask better than that. Plus, Barkley is pretty much guaranteed to play every minute going forward.

Another solid differential who could be good value in the next few games at home to Leeds and Southampton.

Forwards

A star striker can be the difference between a good and a great points haul, but they are expensive too! With so many great midfielders this year, some cheaper alternatives have come to the fore.

Star Signing – Timo Werner (£9.3m)

It's very hard to shake the feeling you don't need Harry Kane and/or Dominic Calvin Lewin in the side right now.

But beyond these two, Timo Werner has once again staked his claim for inclusion.

A dry few weeks at the start of the season might have put fans off, but two goals and an assist against Southampton has made him a genuine possibility if you can't quite push the boat out for Kane.

Bargain Buy – Michy Batshuayi (£5.8m)

Yes, a third Palace player. What am I thinking? Well, they're cheap and have the potential to get goals.

With Batshuayi up top, Palace already look a far greater threat than they ever did with Benteke.

His 82 minutes against Brighton yielded an assist and we're willing to bet he'll have more joy in the fixtures leading up to the middle of December.
