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.

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.

    Seems to me the situation is wait until saturday morning.

    1. Scholes Out Forever

      Are there press conferences on Saturday mornings?

      Friday night is good enough really. We won't get more news after the press conference round-up on Friday.

    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. DCL to richarlison?

      I’d hold it for now and wait for more news over next couple of days. I’m tempted to get Raphinha in for GW25, and Leeds have a definite game in 29 so makes it easier to get a team out if you don’t want to use a chip

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'd save BB until after you WC. Even if you upgrade Steer and Dunne you will still have Pieters, Bamford, Dallas, Wilson (and probably more) with just the one fixture in DGW26

        Spurs no chance of having dgw26 if they lose?

            They still could

            Saints to their rescue tomorrow.

          • CROYDON DE BRUYNE
            • 4 Years

            If Soton win tomorrow they will

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            They will if Southampton win, plus they have games to make up.

          • djman102
            • 12 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Even if Saints lose, there is a (slim) chance they could put Villa-Spurs in 26.

            1. Rainer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Sheff/Villa probably ruin that.

          Excluding Leeds, and only for the Saturday to Monday games, which team would you pick for Last Man Standing this gameweek? Thinking Everton or West Ham.

          1. Well you know, Triffic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            West Ham

            Fulham sometimes turn up

        5. Lord.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Have the goals overtaken the injuries yet?

        6. Bookkeeper
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          For the DGW:

          (A) 2x City DEF and 1x City MID/FWD
          OR
          (B) 2x City MID/FWD and 1x City defender?

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            B

          2. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            If I was WC then Dias, Gundo and Sterling but I would hold with the 3 that you already have

          3. MOTHRA
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            B

        7. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          So will Digne be rested against Fulham?

          1. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Nah.

          2. Well you know, Triffic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            No

        8. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          I have cover for Dias and pope but issue is whether to start them at all? Will wait for more news I suppose.

          1. Well you know, Triffic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            I doubt Pope will come on for a 20 mins run out if he's on the bench.

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              I meant for the second game. He could miss the first one.

        9. Well you know, Triffic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          I wouldn't be confident of City keeping a clean sheet.
          Everton look sharp going forward.

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            If Dias is out then I would agree

            1. Milkman Bruno
                4 months, 4 days ago

                Laporte is a handy replacement in fairness!

            2. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Looking at both teams tonight tempted to lose Dias for either Foden or sterling

            3. La Roja
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Most teams looking sharp going forward when they play spurs

            4. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Spurs just woeful in defence

            5. Bookkeeper
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              I think the Eve rest players vs City, they have Liverpool shortly after

              Hasn't been since the game got popular on twitter and points manipulation began occuring

            These two selfish teams aren't thinking about Ben Crellin. That guy is probably going crazy ready to update his spreadsheet but these guys just won't let him.
