Fantrax Differential XI: Gameweek 3

The new season is here and we’re BACK with our trademark Differential XI!

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.

The signing of Bernd Leno seems to have brought out a new level in Marek Rodak’s performance as he put in a man of the match performance at Wolves last week. He’d be unlucky to lose his place ahead of a London derby against Brentford this week in a home fixture which provides another decent chance for saves and clean sheet points!

Yes, double Everton defence looks reckless and probably is against any opposition. However, wing backs Mykolenko and Patterson are in there for their attacking threat rather than their defensive prowess. Their GW3 opponents Nottingham Forest kept their first clean sheet of the season last week but still gave up a lot of chances against West Ham. The Toffees full backs will be expected to fly forward at every opportunity as they look for their first points of the season.

Nunez Nemesis Joachim Anderson was picked up in our waiver wire article and also makes the Differential XI while Davinson Sanchez looks like the likely beneficiary from Cristian Romero’s injury ahead of some nice fixtures for Spurs.

Another decent Moises Caicedo return sees him make his second consecutive Differential XI alongside Jeffrey Schlupp who has had a solid if unspectacular start to the campaign.

A fresh new Arsenal seems to have given Granit Xhaka a new lease of life as we said in the waiver wire article this week while Harrison Reed is ticking along nicely on eight points per match. Again, solid not spectacular but definitely a handy addition in deeper, more competitive leagues.

Mathias Jensen enjoyed a day and half in the evening sun against Manchester United in GW2 and will be ready to show it’s not just a flash in the pan against Fulham this week. His time in the lineup may be limited due to Mikkel Damsgaard’s arrival but that may only serve to improve the fellow Dane’s performances.

As we’ve already said on a few occasions this season, streaming forwards looks to be an absolute nightmare this season. If you’ve not already secured your FWD2 for the season, get in the market now or be ready to spend your FAAB/waiver priority on new arrivals.

Another Fulham Reed (Reid), this time of the Bobby Decordova variety is the one we’ve opted for but the likes of Jordan Ayew and Sekou Mara could serve you well.

Kelechi Iheanacho also did his classic lively showing off the bench last week so watch closely to see if he gets his start this weekend.
