Who are the best Burnley players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 24?

Fantasy Premier League managers are considering Burnley players for Double Gameweek 24.

The Clarets face two favourable fixtures against Crystal Palace (away) and Fulham (home) but are they worthy of a mass investment?

How many Burnley assets are too many and which ones should we own? That’s what we’re here to help you with.

After running a data dive on the recent 1-1 draw with Brighton, we have analysed the full capabilities of Sean Dyche’s men at both ends of the pitch in Double Gameweek 24.

THE FORM

Having started 2020/21 in uncharacteristically lethargic spirits, Burnley have embarked on a solid, if unspectacular run, to steer themselves away from the danger zone of late.

They collected 17 of their 23 points over the last 12 matches which included morale-boosting wins at Arsenal (Gameweek 12), home victories over Wolves (Gameweek 14), Sheffield United (Gameweek 16) and Aston Villa (Gameweek 20).

And, of course, their hard work at Anfield in Double Gameweek 19 helped Dyche’s men become the first visiting team to win a Premier League match there since April 2017.

Still, even though the points are flowing more freely these days, one common theme has underpinned the Clarets’ matches this season: lack of goals.

Despite sitting one place above the bottom three, only eight Premier League clubs have conceded fewer times than Burnley this season.

Double Gameweek 24 teams: Fulham - best FPL players, form, fixtures and XXX

Intriguingly, their total of 29 goals shipped is level with Liverpool while second-placed Manchester United (30) and tenth-placed Leeds (38) have both been breached more times than Dyche’s men this season.

The reason for Burnley’s poor performance in the league table despite these hardly relegation-form defensive numbers is, of course, their troubles in front of goal.

After 23 Gameweeks, no team has scored fewer goals than the Clarets (14). Sheffield United have 15 strikes from one extra match, meaning both clubs sit bottom of the league for 0.6 goals per game.

The formbook has not seen much improvement in this area, despite Burnley’s increased number of points.

Over the last 12 matches, their total of nine goals is the second-lowest in the division behind only Fulham (six).

But continuing with their theme, only Manchester City (three), Arsenal (nine) and Leicester (10) have a better defensive record during that time.

    Everton need a dominant keeper like Pickford, woeful aerial defence.

    Love that teams simply don't play like this in the league.

  5. Rupert The Horse

    I should probably cash out on my 10 goals or less bet.

  6. Miguel Sanchez

  10. Salan

    I would not bench Son whatever happened

    1. Utopsis
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Smart man - although 120mins in the legs 3 days before City is less than ideal

  11. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    DCL sub a rest or?

    1. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    4. Revival

      1. HonestBlatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        1-2 weeks out I assume?

  12. Dasher0303
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    What to do? Also not sure what chip plans to do for upcoming weeks I’ve got WC, BB, TC left:

    Martinez
    Stones Shaw Pieters
    Salah Bruno Grealish Gundogan Son
    DCL Bamford
    Steer Dallas Wilson Dunne

    1.5itb 1ft
    Any help?
    Thinking of using my fts to upgrade steer and dunne for DGW26 BB, then navigate for BGW29 and then WC. Any other suggestions? Maybe a plan to get Kane in?
    I also like Foden for next week. Any news on DCL injury?

  13. Mr. O'Connell

    Feel like this performance is doing a lot of people a favour who had planned to bench Son

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      It's a cup game with nobody defending

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      The amount of goals going in of late in the league has been mental

      6 in Man Utd Everton at the weekend, 5 in Man City liverpool, 9 in Man Utd Southampton, 5 in newcastle Southampton...

      Goals, goals, goals

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Even more annoying I changed my mind about boosting in 23 now... was hoping to get those 30 points back this week! Will try again in 25, I guess...

  20. estheblessed

    What happened to Pope and DCL missed both games?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Pope not fit apparently, DCL injured but walked down the tunnel OK

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Not fit? So no incident?
