Differential Potential: Gameweek 27

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 27!

Vicente Guaita | Goalkeeper | Crystal Palace | 44% Owned

This weekend’s encounter between Crystal Palace and Newcastle United looks likely to be a low scoring one. With home advantage Palace should be looking to take all three points and starting a goalkeeper against Newcastle is rarely a bad plan, meaning Vicente Guaita gets the nod this week.

Shkodran Mustafi | Defender | Arsenal | 47% Owned

It’s always nice when a punt pays off! It was Fantasy Football 92 who tipped Shkodran Mustafi a few weeks back to score well after receiving a recall. Since then he’s been on fire, averaging 15 points per match in Fantrax over the last four weeks. If he’s available, get him in quickly!

Charlie Taylor | Defender | Burnley | 27% Owned

Charlie Taylor is a constant threat going forward and so picks up plenty of points in the Togga scoring format from crosses. He should have plenty of opportunity to get forward during this weekend’s encounter against Bournemouth.

Simon Francis | Defender | Bournemouth | 2% Owned

Simon Francis has reminded Fantrax managers recently that he’s not dependant on clean sheets in order to score well. His physical presence should ensure he starts against Burnley and his value this week will only increase if he is picked to play at right back.

Moussa Djenepo | Midfielder | Southampton | 14% Owned

In the absence of Nathan Redmond and Sofiane Boufal, it’ll be up to Moussa Djenepo to carry the fight to Aston Villa in the crucial game at St Mary’s this weekend. Djenepo has blown hot and cold so far this season but it’s all set up for him to perform well and be a creative influence for Southampton this weekend.

Andros Townsend | Midfielder | Crystal Palace | 41% Owned

Making his first ever appearance in our Differential XI is Togga favourite Andros Townsend! This early round safe puck has had a season to forget in all honesty. However, Crystal Palace have looked blunt in attack in recent weeks and a now fit Townsend should be back in consideration. If he performs to his potential against Newcastle this week, Townsend will be an absolute bargain.

Dani Ceballos | Midfielder | Arsenal | 43% Owned

Arsenal fans have been calling out for a place for Dani Ceballos in the starting XI for months now. He was finally given his chance last weekend and his first start in 2020 coincided in a 4-0 win for The Gunners. Ceballos was predictably impressive and his key passes will make him a valuable asset in Togga scoring.

Solly March | Midfielder | Brighton | 27% Owned

It was us that correctly predicted a start for Solly March last time out. A late booking prevented him from finishing with double figures last time out but an eight point return was very solid. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him start at left wing back against Sheffield United this weekend but that should still see him enjoy plenty of opportunity to get involved in the attacking third.

Jay Rodriguez | Forward | Burnley | 11% Owned

Burnley have a favourable match up this weekend at home against Bournemouth and Jay Rodriguez is looking sharp at the moment. With Chris Wood likely to miss out, Rodriguez should keep his place and Will fancy himself to get back in the scoresheet.

Christian Benteke | Forward | Crystal Palace | 30% Owned

I’ll pick Christian Benteke for this lineup for as long as I’m allowed! He finally scored last week, will the floodgates now open?

OLi McBurnie | Forward | Sheffield United | 24% Owned

Oli McBurnie has become Benteke lite in recent weeks. He always looks a goal threat for the Blades but the numerous aerials he wins means he scores will without registering on the scoresheet. He should score well once again against Brighton this weekend.
