Differential Potential – Gameweek 14

Maybe I should be aiming to field 11 players in this team. I love a good Differential but some of them are so left field that they’re actually not good enough to play for their real team.

Luciano Vietto and Diogo Dalot didn’t receive as much faith from their own manager as they did from me, meaning the Differential 11 was a Differential nine.

Stuart Armstrong was this week’s Rondon, bailing us out with a tasty double against Fulham. Sam Vokes also performed for us on Monday night, making up for the aforementioned Venezuelan’s lack of contribution.

That extremely weird Vokes header meant we plundered our way to 84.24 points.

Progress. Very minimal, but progress nonetheless.

Is Gameweek 14 the first century week? Let’s see who we’re relying on…


As far as calculating the clean sheet has gone so far, the Differential Potential Goalkeeper has been spot on.

I’m relying on Wayne Hennessy this week to complete the hat trick.


Fresh from their Old Trafford clean sheet, I’ve gambled on a Crystal Palace double up in defence. Starting a big centre back against aerial bruisers. Burnley or Cardiff is a favoured tactic of mine. I’ve gone for James Tomkins who should be in for a busy afternoon against Sam Vokes.

Erik Durm’s assist at Wolves means he gets the nod. I love a good wing back and Huddersfield play with two of them. The Terriers have a good fixture at home against Brighton this week and Durm should offer good prospects going forward. Plus, I can’t spell the right wing back’s name.

Sean Morrison is another big favourite of mine in Fantrax. This week’s Friday night fixture with Wolves should (probably won’t) be a thriller and Morrison and co should expect to win plenty of duels if Wanderers’ loss at Huddersfield is anything to go by. “Mozza” is a points machine, too.


I went for Victor Camarasa last week. Even though he failed to deliver, he gets the nod for me again thanks to a much kinder fixture.

Stuart Armstrong did bring in the points for us last week. However, I’d rather own his team mate Nathan Redmond this week. Man United should allow gaps at the back which the consistent scoring Redmond is most likely to exploit.

Anyone who’s read any of my previous articles will know how much I adore Pascal Gross. My delight at the return of FPL this week was overshadowed by seeing his name on the team sheet once again. I’m amazed to see so many people on Twitter talking about Gross being available on their waiver wire.

Everyone loves an über Differential. This week he comes in the form of Michail Antonio. West Ham’s fixtures in the medium term look tasty and Antonio should provide attacking returns if picked. His score of 14 in Fantrax in a 4-0 drubbing against the league leaders is nothing short of remarkable.


Burnley battering ram Sam Vokes keeps his spot from last week thanks to an impressive showing last time out.

He’s joined by an old favourite in Steve Mounie who, despite having failed to find the net this season, had still managed 102.5 points in Fantrax. His non-goal dependant point scoring is largely down to 12 shots on target and a whopping 90 aerials won (second only to our boy Vokesy in the aerial winning forwards table. He has 102). Brighton at home is an excellent chance to get off the mark.

Completing the lineup in Gameweek 14…is it stupid/lazy to go for Salomon Rondon again? I don’t care actually. I love the guy and his 30% ownership is a joke. He’ll bag again against West Ham this week.
