Differential Potential: Gameweek 18

Simple fact: a good differential pick is the difference between winning a crucial Fantrax matchup 99% of the time. It’s all very well (and also, essential) having a core of top players. However, that low ownership gem that no one thought of can, more often than not, be the difference between a narrow loss and a convincing win which leaves your rivals in awe of your football knowledge.

Each week on Fantasy Football 92, we pick a full eleven consisting of low ownership players which you can help yourselves to in your league in order to (hopefully) grab yourself the win. All of our differentials are 60% owned or lower.

Here are your picks for Gameweek 18!

Goalkeeper

Aaron Ramsdale | Bournemouth | 38% Owned

Bournemouth have plenty of players missing, meaning a win this weekend against Burnley is hard to foresee. Aaron Ramsdale should be busy. The Cherries did surprise every one at Stamford Bridge last week in all fairness…

Defenders

Frederic Guilbert | Aston Villa | 45% Owned

It’s been a while since we included Frédéric Guilbert in this one. Matchups don’t come much better than Southampton at home. He’s due an attacking return too…

James Tomkins | Crystal Palace | 19% Owned

Crystal Palace face Newcastle at the weekend who looked toothless without Allan Saint-Maximin last week. James Tomkins and co can expect an aerial bombardment this week, especially if both Joelinton and Andy Carroll start again.

Leighton Baines | Everton | 12% Owned

This old FPL legend is back for a cameo! Lucas Digne’s injury looks to have paved away for one of the original attacking defenders to give Premier league football another go. At the time of writing, Leighton Baines has just scored an absolute screamer in the home game against Leicester. The signs are good…

Simon Francis | Bournemouth | 2% Owned

Our under the radar pick that has potential to score very highly this week. Simon Francis has always been useful in Togga scoring. The likelihood of him scoring well against an time like Burnley who prefer the aerial route is high.

Midfielders

Bernard | Everton | 36% Owned

Bit of a left field one. Bernard has been given another chance since returning to fitness in recent weeks. If you have Everton attackers this week, make sure you start them. They’re hosting Arsenal…

Christian Atsu | Newcastle United | 12% Owned

Christian Atsu let us down last week. However, this week sees him come up against a severely depleted Crystal Palace lineup. Can he bring that spark that ASM normally provides?

Kenny McLean | Norwich City | 27% Owned

An old dependable. Kenny McLean could be the next John Fleck. His consistency is a FPL manager’s dream. Get him in if he’s available.

Trezeguet | Aston Villa | 25% Owned

Trezeguet’s low ownership was a slight surprise to me. He’s not guaranteed a spot in the first XI, but if he does this week he is a must start against a woeful Southampton.

Forwards

Christian Benteke | Crystal Palace | 14% Owned

He’s back! One Togga legend makes way for another as Andros Townsend’s injury paves the way for Christian Benteke’s latest chance to prove that he has remembered how to score goals.

Scoring goals doesn’t matter if you own Benteke in this games. He comfortably scored double figures on Monday despite failing to provide a goal or assist and picking up a yellow card. If he’s on your free agent pole right now, this is a no brainer. This guy is a togga legend!

Ismaila Sarr | Watford | 24% Owned

Ismaila Sarr had a day to forget at Anfield last week but he’s generally scored very well in Togga scoring this season.

Sarr scored 8.5 points in a 2-0 loss, a score which could have been much higher had it not been for THAT fresh air shot! He faces Manchester United this week who simply don’t do clean sheets.
