Three Gameweek 6 goalscorers have FPL differential potential

Once again the differentials stole the show as three players with an ownership of 3% or less ended up among the top six points-scorers for Gameweek 6.

This demonstrates that there’s more out there than having to plod along with the standard template team. Of note, Nicolas Pépé (£9.4m) did this column proud as he took and scored a penalty for Arsenal, thus ensuring that at least one of our differentials per week has delivered a Fantasy return since the opening weekend.

Can we continue the run? Here are three low-owned players to take into account for Gameweek 7:

Andriy Yarmolenko

Price: £5.9m
Ownership: 1.0%
GW7 opponent: Bournemouth (a)

There aren’t many midfielders priced at £6.0m or less that have the pedigree to score goals on a fairly regular basis and, going by the form book, it’s becoming hard to ignore Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.9m).

Had it not been for a serious injury last October, he would have been a mainstay in West Ham’s team during the last campaign. His international acumen is also very respectable, with 36 goals in 81 senior appearances for Ukraine. He’s scored two goals in his last three Premier League games and is the Hammers’ joint-second outfield FPL points-scorer, despite not playing at all during Gameweek 1.

Barring any injuries, Yarmolenko ought to be a regular starter. The fact that he has yet to play a full match since his return is a minor concern but also unsurprising as a way of him being managed accordingly.

He’s playing in an advanced role, as you would expect, with 83 of his 160 touches from the final third. West Ham are due to face Bournemouth this weekend, who have yet to keep any clean sheets. This should bode well for Yarmolenko as both he and Sebastien Haller (£7.4m) will look to exploit the vulnerabilities in the Cherries’ backline.

Chris Wood

Price: £6.2m
Ownership: 0.8%
Gameweek 7 opponent: Aston Villa (a)

Prior to last weekend, you would have been forgiven to think that Ashley Barnes (£6.6m) was the only striker leading the line for Burnley this season. After all, Chris Wood (£6.2m) had failed to register any attacking returns until his brace at Carrow Road.

Priced at £0.4m less than Barnes and with considerably lower ownership, Wood is an alternative option into Burnley’s attack.

Despite having 11 fewer shots on goal than Barnes this season, he boasts a better shooting accuracy than him (50% v 43%). Looking at last season, Wood only scored two fewer league goals than his strike partner and you would expect them to complement each other up top.

Like Barnes, Wood has started every league game this season so in theory shouldn’t be at risk of rotation. This is all the more apparent as Burnley don’t have any European commitments this season and were knocked out of the League Cup in August.

Between now and Gameweek 14, the Clarets have a generous fixture run during which they only face one team that finished in the top five last season. This could act as a platform for Wood to score more goals.

Of course, he’s never scored more than ten goals in a Premier League campaign but due to the reasons stated he can be a potential short-term option in the weeks ahead.

Wesley Moraes

Price: £6.0m
Ownership: 1.8%
GW7 opponent: Burnley (h)

Aston Villa were unlucky not to get a positive result against Arsenal having been 2-1 up until the final ten minutes of the match.

The Villans have so far scored six Premier League goals this season and that’s in no small part due to Wesley Moraes (£6.0m).

Among strikers priced at £6.0m or under, none have had more shots on target than him (seven) and he is joint-top in that bracket for goals scored (two) since Gameweek 1. Unless Aston Villa sign someone during the January transfer window, he should be their main striker until the end of the season – which also makes him a viable option.

Despite receiving ample support from the likes of Jack Grealish (£5.9m) and John McGinn (£5.7m), the concern so far for Villa has been their lack of goals scored, which has been costly and is partly why they currently are 18th in the table.

However, it’s not all doom and gloom. If they are going to score, Wesley will be possibly involved in some shape or form. They could very easily double their goals tally in their next three league games against Burnley, Norwich and Brighton.

This could serve as a potential platform for Wesley to become the next bandwagon if more of his shots on target can be converted into goals.

    Play Otamendi over Rico a no brainer?

      Yes

      Not a no brainer, Rico is a fantastic left back in a strong defensive Bournemouth

        To everyone considering Azpi be aware that Reece James has returned from injury (got a goal and 2 assists in his first game back while looking strong defensively). Rotation is imminent

        1. Jon Snow
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Wouldn't mind seeing Azpi moved to the left

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            True but I wouldn’t say Alonso has been any worse than Azpi to warrant the move

        2. Like i said Lacazette
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          yes.. tomori is the way to go !!!

        3. Pranav Santhosh
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Is there a chance he moves to the left to accomodate James or would lampard prefer Emerson/alonso?

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            While Emerson is out maybe but otherwise no I’d say. Emerson has been quality this season, Azpi has been underwhelming to say the least

        4. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Is he better than Azpi? :0

          1. some witty pun
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            At RB or RWB, definitely yes. He performed so well at Wigan last season, they named him captain on the final day as farewell. He was 18

          2. CostaCoffee
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            He’s never really been tested against top teams but potentially yes. Azpi has definitely declined in recent times and Frank will have no problem integrating Reece

        5. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Doubtful IMHO.

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Even if he doesn’t fully displace him rotation is almost guaranteed. Azpi has played almost every game for 3 years, we finally have adequate competition at RB. If Azpi keeps up his current poor form it’s very possible Reece becomes number 1 though, he’s arguably our most promising talent

            1. jtreble
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Rest/rotation - a game or minutes here or there - sure. Don't envision much else though. Promising young player though.

        6. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          james is nowhere near playing ahead of azpi

        7. ALegendJ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Azpi should start no matter what, he is one of the most underrated player imo

        8. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I dont see Reece starting instead of Azpi. Most likely with. Azpi can play LB or CB too

        With Martial news, play Greenwood & bench Cantwell 1st on bench?

        Pope
        Virgil, Otamendi, Trent
        Salah, Sterling, Son, Mount, Cantwell
        Pukki, Tammy

        Button, Lundstram, Montoya, Greenwood

        1. Pranav Santhosh
          • 3 Years

          That’s what I’m doing but I do have united bias plus want an fpl player in final game

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Think ManU can score against Arsenal without Martial and Rashford? Could be execting to play him just to have someone playing in the monday game?

        Thanks

          Soyboy

        4. Pranav Santhosh
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Soyuncu best chance of a clean sheet this season

      9. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        If you have to drop one of Auba, Salah, Son, who would you drop? (Cash issue)

        I can fit all 3 but that would mean one of Rico/Diop/Tomori start every week

        1. CostaCoffee
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          All 3 with Tomori sounds good

          1. Holmes (specialist in failu…

          Good gw to have differential captain.

          Abraham(c). Anyone else here?

          1. Tshelby
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Tammy isn't really a differential captain this week

            1. S.Kuqi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              He is imo

              1. Tshelby
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Top three captain picks this week will be Tammy, Salah, Sterling imo

            2. some witty pun
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Not on this site, but against the entire population of FPL, definitely differential

              1. Tshelby
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Two weeks in a row most transferred in player. Has a great fixture think a lot of people will captain him.

          2. ALegendJ
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            OR he should be differential since most will captain Salah

        5. Like i said Lacazette
          • 1 Year

          why are people shipping sterling!.. crazy.. he's one of their best and is sure to start this week against a not so good def... smh..

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            people that are taking out Sterling are not thinking he will never score again...

          3. Woy_is_back
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Agreed. The only player I would transfer him for is Son this GW

          4. Pap Le Cissier
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            For me it means being able to get Tammy over Barnes and leaves another 1m spare for another upgrade.

            I don’t like the idea of losing Sterling but it’s more combos of players that’s swaying me

          5. Holmes (specialist in failu…
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            He was obviously start scoring again

            But I took him out because I was bored of looking at same team every week.

            I can get KdB and Mount over Donkey.

            Easy.

            1. Like i said Lacazette
              • 1 Year

              well anyways.. FPL responsibly..

              It's not that easy.

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                it is if you have 2 Ft;s and exact funds

                Sterling/Donkey->KdB/Mount

                1. Hy liverpool
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Cantwell and mcginn have a lovely fixtures so you can survive for 2/3 weeks then switch one of them.
                  But those are also good moves so whatever you will do, you will keep your high rank hopefully.

                  1. Christina.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 23 days ago

                    I just dint want to make the same mistake I might a couple of seasons ago when I did not buy Ramsey and Yaya because I was stubborn.

                  2. Christina.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years

                    Problem is in 2-3 weeks KdB and Mount will prob cost 0.3m more between the 2 of them

            Aguero for same price is better option.

            Im tempted to do Sterling Haller ---> Kun Maddison/Yarmo

          People holding onto digne do you plan on getting rid any time soon? And would there be anything that happens in the city game that would prompt you to ditch ahead of the burnley game (excluding injury of course)

            1. Pranav Santhosh

              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yeah I wanted to get rid but decided to keep to bring Tammy and mount in for Barnes and James instead. Everton look poor defensively lost gueye, zouma and gbamin is injured. Best hope I have is that they bounce back and play up to the tough city fixture

                Would have prioritise those moves aswell. If lucky digne might get assist

                1. Pranav Santhosh

                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Yeah was very indecisive on bringing either alonso or tomori I’m so just went with the other moves for a -4. Not banking on any returns this week currently 2nd on my bench but I would feel pretty silly if I kept him for city and sold ahead of burnley so just wondering what other digne keepers are thinking/doing.
                  Thanks!

              Love that move. After that performance against Salah I reckon he could be no.1 or 2 in the pecking order now

          4. badgerboy

            Benching. No one is really keeping clean sheets at the moment and a defender with his attacking output potential is worth keeping imo. And no City are an anomaly.

            1. Pranav Santhosh
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yeah I’d imagine outside of the Liverpool fullbacks he is posting the best attacking numbers of all defenders

                  to upgrade Donkey and have the option of benching Cantwell or Mcginn in future. I've been lucky last 5 weeks...wont continue with playing Cantwell & Mcginn every week.

                    Also potentially 0.2m swing over the weekend with kdB rising and donkey dropping.

                    you'll be wanting him back soon 🙁 I want him soon too. Fairy nuff as you have no KDB who is THE guy now. Benching cantwell is quite liberating when he's away

                        Personally I prefer sterling as a long term option. If I was making the decision now for eg it’d be sterling over Kun

                        1. Christina.
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          same price. One on penalties and on form. Not sterling.

            Hey Christina. If you were on your WC this week, who would you consider to be essential picks? I’m currently at ~400k and obvs looking to climb the ranks. I’ve got value tied up in Mount and Pukki. Asking you because I like your bold strategy. Cheers!

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Auba
              Ota
              2 from Kun/Kdb/Sterling
              Mane over Salah
              TAA

              1. Bojam
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Cool, thnx 🙂 What are thoughts on Firmino rather than Salah or Mane (at least for the next few weeks)?

                Guess i’m looking for value and his returns p/million are better than either of the other two. Frees up some cash.

            2. Bojam
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Considering the following options maybe:

              Fabianski
              TAA; Otamendi; Aurier
              Salah; KDB; Dilva; Mount
              Firmino; Abraham; Pukki
              (Button; Yarmo; Rico; Lunds)

              Zero ITB.

              Pope
              TAA; Aurier; Diop/4.5m other
              Sterling; KDB; Son; Mount
              Firmino; Abraham; Pukki
              (Button; McGinn; Rico; Lunds)

              Zero ITB

              Would totally appreciate your thoughts 🙂

                You don't need 8 good forwards as you can only ever play 7, so you can probably afford the defense in first with attach in second

                1. Bojam
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Yeah that’s true but Pep roulette. Wanted Yarmo in case either KDB or Dilva got benched. Reckon he looks like a good option. But maybe there are cheaper alternatives like Cantwell (just don’t like the Norwich double up).

                    Dilva is not an option. forget about him.

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 3 Years
                      1 month, 23 days ago

                      If you get him at the right time he is. You can guarantee maybe 2 games out of him right now

                      1. Christina.
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        perhaps, but not on a WC.

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 23 days ago

                      Three double digit hauls in six games so far. Too much of a rotation headache you think?

                      1. Ask Yourself
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 23 days ago

                        I have him and have done for a couple weeks been lucky to get two starts. Timing is the key with any city player really. Two of him, Mahrez, Bilva, Foden and Gundogan get to play. When you think like that and see he’s a bit old he’s probably not the greatest for a long time. I am happy to keep for next 1 maybe 2 games depending on UCL minutes

                Mcginn is a waste in 2nd one. You will never play him. Same with Yarmo. Lose them for 4.5m or cantwell
                Dont like Aurier

                Mane over Salah
                Auba over Bobby F

          Potential back 5 for Chelsea this weekend?

          -James---Tomori-Christiansen-Azpilicueta---Alonso

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            1. more likely to be a back 4
            2. christensen is injured
            3. azpi will stay rb

          2. some witty pun
            • 7 Years

            I dont think we play with a back 5 at home against Brighton.
            Azpi - Tomori - Christensen - Alonso.

            Reece unlikely to start after playing 90 last weekend and midweek

          im really want son for his next 3 matches and the only way i can do so is with downgrading salah as i see salah becoming a home game player because he will be marked tightly when playing away----trying to be too smart ?

                1 month, 23 days ago

                Noway i would play without liverpool attackers vs united leicester tottenham, those are really good fixtures for attackers.
                Keep salah.

                  Leicester have been putting up really good defensive numbers. Agree with the other two though.

                  • 7 Years

                  leicester yes but i dont know about united as im always thinking that united will do their best when playing liverpool at home no matter what happen to their team now

            Not sure it's worth it this week? I suppose it could go either way though. Either could get a brace. Spurs haven't been too convincing as of late while Pool are guaranteed at least 2-3 goals

            1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              next 3 games for spurs just look a great games for spurs to gain momentum

                They've won 4 of their last 17 competitive games. I doubt this is about momentum or form

                There is a problem.

            Rico, though I expect him to get torn to shreds by Yarmalenko... and I'm not really expecting a third assist in a row from him.

            I think Greenwood has the higher ceiling but unproven at this level and playing for a weak team with no creativity. Norwich are poor away from home and palace look solid at home

          I've had Maguire since the start and was planning on moving him on in this week's mini wildcard. I've only done the two FT's so far and was planning on moving him on to Azpi for a -4 tonight. Team as it stands below:

          Ryan
          VVD - Ota - Maguire
          McGinn - McNeil - KDB - Salah - Sterling
          Tammy - Pukki

          A - Hold Maguire
          B - Move him to Azpi (long term) -4

              Why wouldn't he? KWP and Dier played 90 mins in midweek.

              Poch is overthinking this. Just play your in-form players in their best positions:

              Lloris
              Aurier Alderweireld Vertonghen Rose
              Ndombele Sissoko

                  I am I wasted my money on Schar lol. i'm okay with it hopefully he pays of but Lascelles can do it too. No competition or rotation risk i'd go for it x

                    Thanks. I'm weighing Lascelles vs Guilbert and AVL is currently winning on all comparisons, but I'm now bolder about getting Guilbert for GW8 with Lascelles as an easy replacement if he loses his place

                      Guilbert has the biggest upside sure but it’s just he needs to keep his performances up and you are betting on that.

                      By the time they do you'll have missed the points. I don't understand why people are so insistent on having seen something before acting. The fixtures clear up, Chelsea have Kante back and conceded very few chances in open play vs Liverpool.

                          vs West Ham who are far more prolific in front of goal and have a top 6 xG in the last 4 games. BHA meanwhile are 15th for the same stat.

                                  Maybe. I dont feel strongly about either player tbf. Just a feeling that Rico could assist again but I could be wrong

                Thanks all! Clearly, as usual, a tricky decision! I also own Lundstram as second sub!

                "... On -8 with 3.2 ITB ...". Typo?

                  Nope my current team with -8 and 3.2 ITB after transferring out Sterling to De Bruyne. Time to wildcard instead of -8

                    Just the same my vote is no WC. Team seems fine.

              On A WC. Would you play/bring in Firmino (SHU away) or Aubameyang (Man U away) for this week?

                Auba! I am a United fan & I know he will score against us!

                  I think both are great but would go for Auba. He’ll be a great captain pick next week as well.

                  Auba but not only for this GW, he has amazing fixtures.

                  For this week? Wilson or Haller. Two good attacks vs two terrible defences (statistically)

                  Medium to long term... Auba

                  Bobby but long term auba probably

                Subs: Pope, Digne, Greenwood, Lundstram

                Already made my transfer, but could do a minus 4 for Digne > Soyuncu, play him and bench Dendoncker? Would free up the necessary cash for Greenwood > Wood next week.
