Fantasy Allsvenskan Differentials for the Final Gameweeks

With just 5 Gameweeks to go, it’s time to start looking at some differentials to make one final push up the rankings! While most players included in this piece will be roughly 5% owned or less, some featured are more highly owned but most likely by inactive teams, these players will have a “*” next to their name. Here are 20 differentials for the run-in!

Goalkeepers

Admittedly most managers won’t be looking at switching goalkeepers at this points, but if you’re on a Wildcard or find yourself in need of a goalkeeper transfer, here are a few players to target:

Malmö keeper Johan Dahlin (6.3m) will miss the rest of the season so 5.9% owned Marko Johansson (4.5m) has a great chance of putting in a proper challenge for the first team spot, ahead of next season. With 3 clean sheets in the last 6 games and a potentially profitable schedule to come, Johansson looks like a great cheap pick.

3.2% owned Budimir Janošević (4.8m) has established himself as first choice for AIK and with 5 clean sheets in the last 7 games, it’s easy to see why. AIK looks solid defensively again, and Janošević is another great budget option, albeit with the caveat that you might want other AIK players with the maximum three spots available.

4.5% owned Tommi Vaiho (5.6m), has reclaimed his first-team spot in the merry go round that is the Djurgården goalkeeper spot. 2 clean sheets from 4 and a superb schedule to boot, he’s quite possibly the pick of the bunch.

Defenders

6.4% owned Elliot Käck (5.5m) was a big fantasy asset last season and could prove to be again for the last couple of games. Some question marks as to whether or not he keeps his spot when the first choice centre backs are fit (where Jonathan Augustinsson (5.6m) has been deputising), but given it looks more or less certain that Augustinsson will be leaving after the season, it would make some sense to play Käck at left-back regardless. 3 assists in his last 3 games, on some corners and set pieces, Käck could be a nice differential to double up with Witry ahead of the run-in.

7.6% owned Jonas Knudsen (5.3m) is borderline too popular to be included, yet with 2 clean sheets, 2 assists, 3 offensive and 5 defensive bonus points in his last 4 games – he should arguably be a lot more heavily owned. There is no real shortage of good defensive options however, and the Double Gameweek just passed will also have played a part in him not picking up more owners. Ahead of a favourable run of fixtures where Malmö look to secure another title, Knudsen could offer plenty of points both in defence and attack.

1.7% owned Sotirios Papagiannopoulos (5.9m) offers stability, clean sheets and defensive bonus points. In just 7 games played for AIK, he has 4 clean sheets and 10 defensive bonus points. At the moment, it feels like most picks at AIK are quite good prospects, but security of starts shouldn’t be underestimated and Mikael Lustig (6.8m) has been struggling with minor injuries lately.

3.8% owned Per Karlsson (6.0m) is another low owned defensive asset at AIK, with 5 clean sheets, 1 goal and 9 defensive bonus points in his last 7 games. Again, it’s mostly security of starts and defensive bonus points you’re getting here.

4.3% owned Henrik Castegren (5.3m) has reclaimed his spot in the Norrköping side, scoring a goal against AIK in Gameweek 25. Castegren and Norrköping face Mjällby (a), Falkenberg (H), Hammarby (a) and Helsingborg (H).

Midfielders

0.9% owned Blair Turgott (4.8m). A 4.8m midfielder playing OOP as a striker, scoring 6 goals on the season of which 3 came in the last 2 games, with underlying statistics to back it up? Yes please! As far as differentials go, Blair Turgott is incredibly exciting. 13 shots in the last 4 games (7 on target) and with Mjällby and Varberg in the next 3 Gameweeks, Turgott won’t stay that lowly owned for long.

2.3% owned Edward Chilufya (5.7m) had a Double Gameweek to forget, coming off the bench in the first game and managing an assist in 23 minutes, but pulling out of the squad for the second game of the week due to a minor injury. This has been the case with Chilufya most of the season, but despite limited game time, he still has 2 goals and 3 assists in his 9 last appearances, in just 408 minutes played – averaging 6.7 points per 90 minutes played on the season. It’s a gamble with his fitness, but whenever he plays he seems to be in the points.

* Alexander Kacaniklic (9.6m), owned by 11.1%. With an initial ownership of well above 40%, Kacaniklic scored a goal and an assist in Gameweek 2 before more or less dropping off completely, popping up with the odd assist and seeing his minutes heavily managed during the first half of the season. Between Gameweek 14-19 he missed out completely due to an injury despite all this, but since coming back he now has 1 goal and 6 assists in 6 appearances, alongside 3 offensive bonus points. With a decent schedule for the run-in, the tough games are all at home where Hammarby tends to do well (though this season without fans, it’s been a lot less so). As a team, Hammarby might struggle to get all the points from the encounters, but as an individual, Kacaniklic has the potential to deliver more or less every week.

* Fredrik Ulvestad (7.6m), owned by 16.7%. Highlighted by the Scout for the Double Gameweek which netted him 20 points, Fredrik Ulvestad now has 10 goals on the season and is growing increasingly influential in the Djurgården side pushing for a top-three spot. On penalties, he had more than twice the ownership when in vogue during the first half of the season. As the points dried up, Ulvestad is now a semi-differential amongst the more active managers – and Djurgården’s fixtures are amazing besides the derby in Gameweek 27.

1.4% owned Adi Nalic (7.0m) has been deputising for Isaac Kiese Thelin (10.3m) as a striker for Malmö. He has 2 assists, 4 offensive and 2 defensive bonus points in his last 3 games and it’s always been the case with him that he produces when given minutes. With Kiese Thelin now back to fitness, Nalic will probably get more rotated again but given it looks unlikely that Kiese Thelin stays with Malmö after this season when his loan expires, Nalic will want to continue impressing the coach to get a whiff at more playing time next season if nothing else (or a big move somewhere). Expect some benchings, but points whenever he plays a bit more.

5.5% owned Jonathan Levi (7.4m) has struggled with fitness most of the season, but 4 goals in the last 2 games indicates he is in fine form at the moment. With a favourable fixture list for attacking returns incoming, Levi should provide a lot more – assuming he can stay fit. A common theme amongst the differentials, unfortunately.

3.8% owned Elias Andersson (5.6m) has understandably been taking a back seat while Stefano Vecchia (6.9m) and Yukiya Sugita (7.4m) have stolen the limelight. Sneakily coming into form, Andersson is now trailing the pair by just 17 and 19 points, respectively. Sirius fixtures are a mixed bag, but Andersson looks like he can provide some points for the run-in.

3.1% owned Abbe Khalili (7.2m) had a big impact in Gameweek 24 with his 3 assists, otherwise it’s mostly been bonus points with him. Netting 5 offensive and 2 defensive bonus points in his 4 last games, Khalili is no doubt a wild punt but if Hammarby does well in the final games, so should he.

Forwards

6.4% owned Ola Toivonen (11.2m) is the most expensive player in the game, and he’s starting to show why. 5 goals and 1 assist in his last 4 games, Toivonen can prove to be a big difference-maker for your squad if you can afford him for the last 5 Gameweeks!

4.2% owned Deniz Hümmet (5.4m) has 4 goals and 4 assists in his last 7 appearances for Örebro. Fixtures are a mixed bag, but Örebro have actually looked good going forward the last couple of weeks, scoring 9 goals in their 4 last games.

0.4% owned Rasmus Karjalainen (5.7m), has played a big part in Örebro’s attacking resurgence as well, scoring 4 goals in his last 4 appearances.

* Karl Holmberg (8.7m) is more popular at 7.9%, but in the greater scheme of things he remains a differential. 4 goals and 1 assist in his last 4 games, Holmberg’s prospects depend on him getting continued minutes, which hasn´t been a guarantee this season. Even off the bench however, he remains an interesting prospect for those inclined to back Djurgården to make a late-season push.

 

Hopefully you’ll be able to use this list to find a way to push up the rankings in the last 5 Gameweeks! If you have any other differentials you’d like to share or want to discuss the prospects of the ones listed here, please do comment here below – or take the discussion to the Twittersphere where I’m @FF_Meltens. I wish you all good luck for the run-in!

      If you can go Sugita —> Kaca for free I’d probably do it, otherwise save and play Sugita over Börnström imo.

        This is what I did without reading your comment. Great minds think alike! Good luck!

    Going all in on Park the Bus in the final GW after a very disappointing last half of the season and an OR of 2 320. With both Witry and Birkfeldt out, I need to prioritise transferring them out (for a -4). But for who?

    Eric Larsson and Joel Nilsson perhaps?

    Janošević
    Kahl - Larsson - Ekpolo - Witry* - Birkfeldt*
    Vecchia - Haksabanovic - Larsson - Berget
    Kiese Thelin
    (Nilsson - Karjalainen - Seger - Selmani

      Yes to both suggestions! 🙂
      Scout picks coming out in 3...2...1...

        Thanks! Really need to get that PTB right, and those two looks like decent options for the final GW. A bit worried about Kiese Thelin's playing time, but a -8 to do Thelin > Nyman might be a bit much.

        1. General Nuisance
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 12 days ago

          TAT, IKT has been confirmed by JDT that he will start.

          Good luck!

          1. TAT
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            Great! No need to transfer him out then.

            Good luck to you as well 🙂

    2. Bob Sacamano
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 12 days ago

      Good luck with the chip! PTB is so powerful that I would definitly concider -4 or even -8 to get the best possible defence. For the final GW I would mainly look at the Malmö defence, and after that Djurgården, Häcken and Norrköping. Depending on budget, I'd look at Larsson, Ahmedhodzic, Toivio, Castegren and perhaps Käck/Augustinsson.

      Should also warn you that rumours on twitter say that neighter Vecchia nor Berget will start this GW. Not sure about the Berget rumour, but the Vecchia one seems reliable.

      1. TAT
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 12 days ago

        My current defence (with a -4 taken) looks like this:
        Kahl - Larsson - Ekpolo - Larsson - Nilsson

        Berget and Vecchia not starting is really bad news when you're on a hit already. With 1.1 in the bank I can only afford a midfielder at 7.3 or less to replace Vecchia, which makes me think I should just rely on what I can get from Karjalainen. I could bring someone else in for Berget though, like Jonathan Levi for example. Hm…

    Who are you capping this joyful day?
    Any low owned punts worth having a look at?

    Thanks as ever for your participation and contributions this year, hope to see you around for the next season as well! 🙂

      Sensible picks once again

      I am looking at bringing in one of Levi or Bengtsson, with news that Ogbu will miss the game and 1.3 in the bank. I already have Nyman and Haksabanovic and one of them will be capped.

      Thanks for all enjoyable banter and discussion. This has been my first season, and I hope to finish strongly, squeezing back into the top 100. I am not sure I will be playing next year. Allsvenskan nees to take the fantasy game more seriously. Among many things, I am looking at the carnage of cancellations in GW 19, which threw all plans out through the window. Nothing against FFS of course, but just my two cents.

        Wait, Ogbu misses the last game? Can you post a link to the source?

            Much appreciated, thanks!

            The lack of yellow/red flags sometimes makes the fantasy game unnecessary difficult, lol. I have two freebies. Thinking AC and Bengtsson...

        Cheers, yeah they dropped the ball at times this season but tbf it’s been a really crazy and weird one with the virus implications. Like the Norrköping cap!

    2. TAT

      Looking forward to the final round of games, with PTB in play. It's a shame that no Norwegian sports channels have aired Allsvenskan games this season, and finding dodgy streams online haven't been the same. That has made playing Allsvenskan Fantasy more difficult of course.

      I really hope someone picks up the rights for the next season, so that you can actually get a look at who's performing or not!

      Hi Petter

      My apologies, I was tied up with family today and didn't get to make the deadline.

      Thank you for all your articles and tips, I wouldn't have beaten you without them!

      I'll drop you a proper thank you tomorrow.

      Cheers

      Johnny

        Oh, and love the -20 hit, that is balls to the wall! You are very much braver than me buddy.

          Hahah well I was destined for a very mediocre finish regardless and had Witry, Selmani, Ogbu definitely missing out with Vecchia heavily rumoured to be out (turned out true as well) so I figured I would just go for it, actually highly motivated by trying to catch you! 😉 Didn't work out in the end and hits is definitely a big part of why the season went as it went for me, but it was still a fun memory! 🙂

        I'll get you next season Johnny! 😉
        Thanks for all the kind words and good banter, this community really has been what's kept me going through the tight deadlines and low scores, particularly during the first half of the season 🙂

          Thanks Petter, you did a brilliant job and I look forward to trying to outwit you next season.

          And also many thanks to all those that joined my Koh Samui mini-leagues, so much more enjoyable than playing in a league of one!

          Congratulations to Daniel Sebestyen who won the Koh Samui Classic league with the very aptly named team - VENI VIDI TANKOVICI, (OR 180) he did indeed conquer and overtook JS in the last two gameweeks after JS had pretty much led all season. Good to see Latin still alive and well in the modern world!

          JS (OCD All-stars) did win the H2H league so congratulations to him also (OR 409). We won’t mention who came last.

          I doubt any of you will be visiting Koh Samui any time soon but if you do in the future there‘re some cold beers and a warm welcome waiting for you.

          Cheers everyone and thanks very much Petter.

            Haha always the gentleman Johnny 😉
            I willingly accept my spot at the bottom of the H2H as it’s very hard to win those consistently with the amount of hits I’ve been taking. At least a slightly more flattering position in the classic league makes up for some of it!

            If I can find the time I’ll do some sort of a wrap up article but it won’t be stat heavy in that case, more what went wrong and who where the top performers. Keep an eye out but if it’s not here by the weekend, it probably won’t come 🙂

            Hey there,

            It's great to see that somebody mentioned my name as a mini-league winner as that's the only good thing in this crazy season for me. Thanks for letting me into your ML and you can count me in next year as well and who know, maybe I'll grab that few beers in the future.

            Cheers guys!

    Thanks for the info and help through the season everyone here!

    I would come back to play next season as I like how fantasy allsvenskan is as process oriented (how bps works here) as it is outcome oriented (assist goals cs). I recommend anyone who want to try sth different from epl fantasy to try it and get a same-different type of fun

      Yeah that's one of the bigger selling points for the Fantasy Allsvenskan game I think, the bonus system is top notch! 🙂
      Spread the word and we'll be even bigger next season, with more advice being shared and (hopefully) more articles being written as well 🙂

        Just a sort of end season review as this was my first.

        Seems the best players to own are attacking defenders, saving goalkeepers, all rounder midfielders and budget strikers. Captaincy and double ups probably win you the game. As well as getting updates on whoever is in europe as they tended to rotate after midweek matches, because they tend to be the best teams to get.

        I love the park the bus chip, it feels really game changing. I used it way too early in gw 1 haha
