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.

    Can’t wait for Jose to use this as an excuse to go back to boring defensive football....

      ......sells Kane and Son

    Is Richarlison back? Viable option at H vs. Fulham?

    1. Rep Poulette
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Yes

    2. estheblessed
      • 6 Years

      Yea and he's played well.

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

      Absolutely.

      Type of player to knick one on the break at City too.

    4. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      He's been showing form and desire again. His head was dropping a fair bit over Christmas but think this, and the last match where he had a blinder too, will push him on.

    Mourinho is a total dinosaur. Needs sacking.

  4. wulfrunian

    Pope,Ogbonna,Dias,Antonio,Dcl owner.At least i have 2ft.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Screams WC if confirmed out

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

      I reckon they'll all play. The only doubt being Antonio.

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

        Oh sorry Ogbonna will be out. That was a nasty one.

      2. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I hope so.

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

      Realistically, Ogbonna probably the only one to miss this weekend.

      1. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Any source on Pope's injury?

    4. Stand By Mee
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      What’s wrong with Dcl?

      I have him, Pope, Dias and Antonio 🙁

    5. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Dont forget Rodri as well, could impact Gundo

  5. Milkman Bruno
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Siggy should have passed

    • FPL Kaka
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Who is most likely to mis DGW now?

      A) Dias
      B) Pope

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

        Neither

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

        As a stone's/cancelo owner hopefully Dias!

        1. FPL Kaka
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          As a Stones and Cancelo owner you won't be getting your CS points without Dias haha

        2. Alisson WondHaaland
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Surely you want Dias to play? Bold to assume a CS without him

      3. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 3 days ago

        I see both playing

    • Captain Vantastic™

      Digne hobbled off subbed. Looks injured

      1. JIMMY764
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Looked knackered if anything.

      2. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Tired.

    • Rainer

      Digne wants a flag!

    • Rep Poulette
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Digne "fatigue" too?

    • Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      What to print out first Ben crellin dgw sheet or Ben crellin transfer planner

    • Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      If Pope is out, getting a Burnley defender is a big no right? I was already leaning towards not bringing one in

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

        Probably but Dyche will not confirm anything if he was right - “touch and go”.

      2. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        He’s fine

    • Fudgy

    • Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

        Ings benched, Emerson plays for Chelsea

    • Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years

      Justin injury does not sound too bad. Should be ready for DGW26! 😀
      With no WC but planning to BB26 & FH29 does these transfers look alright?

      Dias + Barnes -> Mee + Gundogan
      Leave me with 2.9 ITB and this team:

      Areola
      Cancelo - AWB - Mee - Coufal
      Salah - Sterling (TC) - Bruno - Gundogan
      Antonio - Watkins

      (Martínez, Maddison, Justin, Brewster)

      1. Scholes Out Forever

        • 7 Years

        he was strechered off

        Looked bad

        1. Milkman Bruno
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Rodgers comments after leaves room for optimism

          • CROYDON DE BRUYNE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Rodgers has said he was fine only 5 mins after, impact injury most likely

            It’s a bit bizarre that it’s almost 10.45 and there is still live football playing.

                  That's why they're benched

                Someone in the wall is going to jump and land on the player lying on the ground eventually and it will be banned

                  I suspect they might be a tad tired. Past bedtime.

                Justin’s injury sounds bad, are we assuming he’s going to be out for a while?

                  Rodgers said it’s not that bad but I think he still misses this week at least

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Sounded like he was fine actually. Maybe one game miss.

                  Rodgers on Justin's knee injury: "He said he could have walked off. After five minutes it eased up. He felt something when he landed but on first look there’s nothing major which is good news."

                  = bad news?

                  Hard to know, you can actually walk with a torn ACL sometimes depending on what way it’s been done for example, being able to walk in & of itself isn’t really an indicator

                  A bit of the old fatigue, probably fine in a week or two
