FPL News: The final gameweek of the season is upon us and it offers a final opportunity for Fantasy Premier League managers to catch up with your mini-league rivals and also improve your overall rank.
It’s always fun when you don’t have to worry about any future gameweeks and make your moves solely to boost your rank in one single week.
Gameweek 38 has historically been a high-scoring week with 30 goals being scored in each of the last six final gameweeks.
With that in mind, we present five players owned by less than 15% of FPL managers who have the potential for massive hauls:
FPL News: Sadio Mane (Liverpool, £11.8m, 4.6% owned)

Sadio Mane is all set to start against Wolves at home on the final day of the season after a much-needed rest in the penultimate gameweek. Mane has a great record in the final gameweeks, having scored in previous three consecutive final days.
Liverpool having a chance to win the title if Manchester City fails to get three points vs Aston VillA. Further, Wolves have been defensively weak with the likes of Saiss, Kilman and Semedo sidelined due to injury. This presents an excellent opportunity for the less than 5% owned Mane to get on the score sheet.
Ryan Sessegnon (Spurs, £4.3m, 1.6%)
Ryan Sessegnon has been Antonio Conte’s favorite for the left-back spot after injuries to Sergio Reguilón and Matt Doherty. The 22-year-old has certainly returned his faith with three clean sheets and one assist in his last five starts.
Averaging over 5 points per game during that period and facing a leaky Norwich side on the final gameweek of the season, Sessegnon has huge potential for a massive haul on both sides of the pitch.
He has further created five big chances in his last five starts. This is three more than any other defender over the same period.
Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United, £6.9m, 14.4% owned)

With 29 goal involvements in his first 33 starts and a further 8.3 points per game average in his last six starts since returning from injury in gameweek 31, Jarrod Bowen has set the FPL world on fire this season. The West Ham forward has been in tremendous goal-scoring form throughout. In addition to that, he shares a major chunk of the set-pieces too.
West Ham will definitely not hold back and would go for the three points against Brighton on the final day at Amex Stadium,. They still have a shot at the Europa League spot if Manchester United fails to win away vs Crystal Palace. This makes Bowen even more tempting.
Harvey Barnes (Leicester City, £6.5m, 4.1% owned)
Leicester City have been quite inconsistent with their performances in the Premier League. James Maddison has been their standout player throughout the season. However, one player from the Foxes that has equal, if not more, potential to register a big haul is Harvey Barnes.
Playing alongside Vardy, who has recently returned from a lengthy injury, certainly makes Barnes an even more viable FPL option. He has already scored six and further assisted nine this season.
Their opponent on the final day Southampton have won only once in the last 11 matches and conceded a mammoth 26 goals during that period. Also, who would forget that 9-0 thrashing, right?
Callum Wilson (Newcastle United, £7.1m, 1.4% owned)
Newcastle United and Callum Wilson will be high on confidence after a tremendous display against Arsenal. The Magpies are rejuvenated under Eddie Howe and would like to end the campaign on a winning note.
With Burnley battling relegating with Leeds United, the game state might force the Clarets to play more aggressive football in search of three points. Wilson, more often than not, is at the end of every attack and his clinical finishing thus brings the potential for a haul.
