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.

    FT 5-4 Eve
    WBA v Everton gw29 off
    Spurs could still blank gw29 if Saints win tomorrow

      Wrong. They play Aston Villa perhaps.

        Nothing there is wrong - "could" not "will"

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          I don’t think they’ll blank. If Southampton win then they play Villa as it’s a free slot.

            Ouch.. what's the other fixtures may be slotted to GW29 apart from TOT AST?

      Did people really do early transfers before these matches?

        500k transfer in for DCL
        500k for Gundo
        250k for Kane
        180k for Foden
        130k for Dias
        118k for Pope
        118k for Sterling
        107k for Justin

        So yes!

          Mad stuff! Look at the potential carnage just from tonight and last night!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Surely pretty pointless at this stage?!

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          I think people think it's relentless so can't wait or don't know when to hit?

      3. estheblessed

        I did Pope... Only because usually with keepers it pretty obvious they will play.

      DCL looks like he should be good for the 2nd game of the DGW at least 🙂

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

        Yeah that's the one we don't need.

        That’s pointless then

          Puki pointing out something pointless to someone who speaks sense is something to think about

          Harry Winks is really bad at playing football.

          GW29 looks like only 2 or 3 games !

          1. JJO
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            3, 4, or 5

        • Finding Timo
            3 months, 3 days ago

            I have both Justin & DCL - should I be worried ?!

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

              I would stayed attentive to news . . .

              1. Finding Timo
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Ok I have 2 FTs so can transfer if out

              2. PascalCygan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                I have both and 2FTs. Will reassess Friday / Saturday.

                DCL particularly annoying with DGW24 in mind

                1. Finding Timo
                    3 months, 3 days ago

                    Yeh good idea - I could do Justin to mee as 1 option snd then see about DCL but not that great if he only ends up playing Man City game so would consider transferring out for a single gameweek player or even INgs with DGW25 in mind ?

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

                      Yes, could be an option. I’ve already brought in Mee and had Justin since GW1 so not in a rush to sell him

                      Looking at Cancelo, Stones, Gundo, Mee and DCL as my DGW24 players at the moment but, as you suggest, might be more worthwhile targeting DGW25

                2. Eh, just one more thing ...

                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Rogers said Justin could have walked off, eased up after 5 mins and that its nothing major ....

                  So fingers crossed ...

                Lol have you guys seen Youri Mina next to Bernard? Mina looks like a basketball player next to him 🙂

                Dias -> Stones.
                Gotta be done

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

                  Dias will be fine

                No spurs double?

                  Still possible. Go to Ben Crellin's Twitter.

                2. JJO
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  I think yes plus game in 29

                3. Qaiss
                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  They have a definite doublex Either against Southampton or Fulham.

                4. Jimmers

                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  If Southampton win tomorrow they definitely will and even if Saints lose could have Fulham game rearranged

              6. Eh, just one more thing ...

                • 9 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                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."

                Fingers crossed i can score him off my mounting injury list then ...

                Who comes in for Justin if he is injured as Salah's match-up next match?

                  Castagne if fit.

                    Thanks!
                    Looking into it Rodgers apparently said this a couple of days ago:
                    Rodgers asked if Timothy Castagne is fit: "No it’s probably another week to 10 days away. He’s been working well with the medical team."

                McCarthy - Coufal - Son - Mitchell

                I could put together this bench boostable team with a -8 hit. Worth it, or stick to the WC25 BB26 tactic? The -8 for context (all three outgoing players will deliver zero this week):

                Forster > Pope
                Reguilon > Mee
                Bernardo > Mitchell

                5 guaranteed blanks in 29.

                3 guaranteed games on in 29.

                Final two to be decided tomorrow. Chelsea & Saints wins = 7 blanks in 29.

                  Villa/Spurs *might* move to 29, even more probable with a Saints win tomorrow.

                  Don’t think was injured ... just tired.

                  Likely subbed to avoid an injury.

                  Crawled off like a baby. Think he was just knackered.

                Pope out, Justin out, Digne out has unintentionally narrowed my transfer plans

                Shaw's looking like a great option to bring in now

                  He’ll be injured by Friday the way things are going.

                  Pope out? Wut

                    Pope will play, bench Justin for 26 and Digne will play

                      Justin stretchered off implies failed ACL test

                    Don’t think Digne is injured he just looked pooped when he walked off.

                  Absolute injury and potential dgws and blanks overload tonight.

                  I have no idea if I'm coming or going

                  Hopefully some clarity before the weekend

                  Absolutely crazy how 'news' flies from people not watching the games or reading the source information themselves.

                  I'm STUNNED 😮

                      Unless Inazuma says it, I don't believe it is true.

                      Two days ago I was stressing about having 2FTs with nothing to do. Now I'm thinking I need 3 at least!

                          Of course ... Digne is fine apparently...

                        What’s wrong with Rodri?

                        Rodri out = Gundogan cdm

                        Not good.

                          I'd see a doctor about that - there are a few on here tonight.
