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 28!
Alex McCarthy | Goalkeeper | Southampton | 12% OwNed
Southampton will be marginal favourites going into their game at West Ham this weekend. The Hammers will see it as a must win game, meaning shots will be raining down on Alex McCarthy’s goal for much of the afternoon. Plenty of saves should see him score well.
Shane Duffy | Defender | Brighton | 46% Owned
Another Togga beast is back! Shane Duffy has found minutes hard to come by for much of this campaign. However, he seems to have worked his way back into the Brighton XI and should face plenty of aerial challenges up against Christian Benteke this week.
Federico Fernandez | Defender | Newcastle | 17% Owned
Newcastle’s normally firm defence has come unstuck a little in the last couple of weeks. They will expect to perform much better at home against Burnley this week. If Chris Wood returns from his injury, however, Federico Fernandez and Fabian Schar will have the task of competing for plenty of headers. Both should be good value this week.
Phil Bardsley | Defender | Burnley | 9% Owned
Phil Bardsley has scored well in the absence of Matt Lowton, particularly last week when he scored 21 points thanks to a clean sheet and an assist. Lowton is missing once again, meaning Bardsley will continue at right back against Newcastle.
Stuart Armstrong | Midfielder | Southampton | 28% Owned
Stuart Armstrong is on hot form at the moment! He wrapped up Southampton’s win against Aston Villa last week with a long range open goal tap in and scored a decent number of ghost points to go with it. With Nathan Redmond and Moussa Djenepo likely to miss the game at West Ham, Armstrong is likely to be Southampton’s main creative spark this week. If Sofiane Boufal returns he is also well worth a start.
Nabil Bentaleb | Midfielder | Newcastle | 24% oWNED
Nabil Bentaleb started as a great Togga prospect judging by his debut at home against Norwich City. This week sees Newcastle take on Burnley at home in a game where the emphasis will be on them to create most of the play which should suit Bentaleb in midfield. I fancy a comeback week for him.
pABLO fORNALS | mIDFIELDER | wEST hAM | 23% oWNED
With new signing Soucek out injured, Pablo Fornals could be in line for a recall for West Ham in the mist win game against Southampton. It was the Spaniard who got the nod off the bench to replace Soucek at Anfield on Monday and he wasted little time in getting on the scoresheet. It looks as though he will be the one to start this weekend over Manuel Lanzini.
Aaron Mooy | Midfielder | Brighton | 36% Owned
Aaron Mooy is Brighton’s best player but blows hot and cold in Togga scoring. It tends to be the games where Brighton are on the attack that Mooy scores well and this is one of those games against Crystal Palace that they will be desperate to grab control of early on. Mooy should be instrumental in any success that Brighton enjoy.
Christian Benteke | Forward | Crystal Palace | 36% Owned
To put it simply, Christian Benteke is a most add. He’s still playing poorly and still scoring very well!
Olivier Giroud | Forward | CHelsea | 42% Owned
Olivier Giroud grabbed his chance with both hands against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend after he was handed a rare start. Reports suggest that Tammy Abraham pulled up in the cool down after the heavy defeat at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, meaning Giroud is likely to be given another chance in an extremely winnable game at Bournemouth this weekend.
Neal Maupay | Forward | Brighton | 51% Owned
Brighton striker Neal Maupay has struggled for form in recent weeks but got himself back on the score sheet last weekend at Sheffield United. His side will be looking to him to apply the finishing touch in the crucial derby against Palace at the Amex this weekend.
