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 21!
Lukasz Fabianski | West Ham | 45% Owned
Lukasz Fabianski announced his return to action with a penalty save and 13 points in a 2-1 loss. This Togga favourite will surely see his ownership rise to 70-80% in the coming weeks. If David Moyes can tighten this Hammers defence before their double gameweek, Fabianski is a must own.
James Tomkins | Crystal Palace | 23% Owned
James Tomkins enjoyed a massive haul of 25 points last week thanks to a goal and plenty of aerial battles won. He will fancy himself for another decent score against Norwich this week.
Ryan Fredericks | West Ham | 14% Owned
The low ownership of Ryan Fredericks is a surprise to me ahead of a very favourable fixture (Bournemouth at home). West Ham will be hoping for a new manager bounce and a clean sheet coupled with an attacking return would not be a surprise from a defender playing against a shot shy attack and loves to get forward.
Kourtney Hause | Aston Villa | 5% Owned
This guy could be out latest top find! Despite conceding eight goal and keeping only one clean sheet in four games, Kourtney Hause has scored 35.25 points, accumulating easy points through aerials and clearances. A trip to Burnley should bring plenty more easy scoring opportunities for Hause with the small possibility of a clean sheet.
Pablo Fornals | West Ham | 40% Owned
We tipped Pablo Fornals a couple of weeks back and he delivered. We expect similar from him this week! He’s finally settled into English football and is the one player leaving the Pellegrini era in a decent run of form.
Conor Hourihane | Aston Villa | 20% Owned
Conor Hourihane followed up his goal in Gameweek 19 with a return of 11 points in a 3-0 loss last week. He was a big part of Aston Villa’s limited attack last week and that should continue against Burnley, hopefully with more success.
Aaron Mooy | Brighton | 20% Owned
We’ve tipped Aaron Mooy on numerous occasions in this article and we’re doing it again after a sterling performance in Gameweek 20. The Australian dynamo was at the heart of everything Brighton did in a dominant performance against Bournemouth and topped off a fine performance with a Bergkamp esque goal. His ownership is still surprisingly low, even after waivers cleared.
Andreas Pereira | Manchester United | 26% Owned
Andreas Pereira is starting to find some form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and was their star performer in their win at Burnley, a game where he tallied another assist. With Jesse Lingard hopelessly out of form and Paul Pogba rumoured to be absent again, Pereira should continue in the number 10 role against a leaky Arsenal team.
Moussa Djenepo | SOuthampton | 19% Owned
Moussa Djenepo made his latest return to fitness coming off the bench in Gameweek 20. He so often looks like the most likely player to hurt opposition when he plays and should get plenty of opportunities to be a threat on the counter attack against Tottenham this time around.
Andy Carroll | Newcastle United | 12% Owned
It remains to be seen whether Andy Carroll is able to play two games in a week but Leicester City’s centre backs will breathe a big sigh of relief if it turns out he can’t. The Geordie giant scored a massive 27.5 points in Gameweek 20 thanks to an assist and (a quite frankly, stupid) 24 aerials. He’s a handful…
Ismaila Sarr | Watford | 41% Owned
Ismaila Sarr is another player we’ve tipped a few times in this feature but with good reason. Since finding thin air with one of his shots against Liverpool four matches ago, Sarr has found the net twice and scored a very useful 36 points in three games. If he’s available in your league, pick him up as he has excellent long term value in a resurgent Watford side.
