FPL differentials to consider for Gameweek 17 and the upcoming Double Gameweek

With one eye on Gameweek 17 and the other on the Double Gameweek, Az looks at some low-owned FPL players to in his latest Pro Pundits piece.


Hi everyone, hope you all had a great Christmas (even under strange circumstances) and are looking forward to the New Year and 2021.

I’m not going to focus this article on my team as Mark and I will be discussing what’s going wrong for me in our next episode of FPL BlackBox.

Instead, I’m going to present some differentials ahead of the upcoming Double Gameweek. I’m building my side out with the Free Hit in Gameweek 18 in mind, which leaves me free to plan who to have in place ready for Gameweek 19 – how exciting!

    Wise to do a Leeds triple up? Already have Bamford and Raphinha.

    A. Dallas (sell Mitchell)
    B. Rodrigo (sell Welbeck)
    C. Don't triple up

        A, especially if using BB, but definitely a risk to triple up in current climate

    5. MessiGOAT
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Calvert or Lacazette for next two ?
      Also Raph or Soucek for the double ?

      Thanks much

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Laca is never an option.
        Raph more likely to play both

        1. MessiGOAT
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Thanks DCL it is

          I don't get this last comment. Soucek has played every single minute in the league this season.

          Raphinha may have a higher ceiling, which would be the reason to pick him.

          1. MessiGOAT
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            I guess Souc is more nailed but Raph more attacking

          2. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Because of Moyes recent comments. He said he was going to rotate like a madman during the coming weeks

            1. Carlton_Goal
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              There's nobody to rotate Soucek or Rice with though. Without those two West Ham would get so badly overrun in the midfield

      2. Your Man With The Hair
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        DCL
        A tossup. I have Soucek

        1. MessiGOAT
          • 8 Years

          Thanks

            Oops

            Hold. Not a good time to be taking hits, can you make the trade later regardless of a price drop?

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              yes price drop doesn't come into it, I am quite interested in seeing what Vestergaard drops to, for his return in a few game weeks.

        Which one? 2FTs

        A) Taylor, Mahrez > Barnes, Dallas

        C) Mahrez, DCL > Raphinha, Vardy

      • ScoutHelp
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Is it Phillips or Rhys Williams while Matip is out? Or will they split games?

          1. ShaunGoater123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Think they will likely split. Neither has looked great

            1. ScoutHelp
                3 months, 19 days ago

                I'm not sold on either but for 4.0 it's worth a shout. Plus, they likely won't be substituted on if they don't start.

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Not worth the transfer for 2 weeks. There will be rotation

            3. Mengo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Personally, I'd avoid. They both looked hopeless the last two weeks. As a make-weight to get someone else in whom you can't afford maybe....there are worse 4.0 defenders out there....you may stumble into a six-pointer with BUR like today with NEW, but doubt it with SOU or MUN

            KDBv- what to do... keep or boot?

            Probably playing Free Hit BGW and aiming for 11 DGW-ers with no chips GW19.

              Mark punished in the end for allowing the Pool game to go on. Robbo owners covered his Mane/Salah double

                An absolute fraud of the highest order. His petty rivalry with Mane makes him all the more pathetic.

              If it still looks right to head down the BB for DGW19 which combo do you prefer for 5th def and 2nd GK slots?

                It’s possible they’ve had real problems down pva’s side and got stuffed a couple of times. My guess is that he won’t keep the start but it’s worth waiting a week to find out if you can

                He played 20 minutes or so the other night and did nothing. He’s not injured, but not necessarily fit either.

                21 points in total, just 4 of my starting 11 played but my 3 bench players came on.

                No captain or vice captain.

                Rank drop from 100k to 270k It’s a tough cruel gig .... 🙂

                  Still a very good overall rank! Silver lining is you now have a load of players with extra DGW to come.

                    Usually sometime around 1am they update the points I believe.
