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.

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

    1. Qaiss

      Wrong. They play Aston Villa perhaps.

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

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 19 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?

    Dcl involved in the celebrations there walking without aid

      He was fine.

    Did donkey get punched?

  4. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Did people really do early transfers before these matches?

    😐 😮

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      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!

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

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

      2. AC/DC AFC

        Wow

    2. ALI_G

      chasing price rises

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Surely pretty pointless at this stage?!

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

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

    3. estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yeh I get that. Hopefully he’ll be fine (he’d better!)

    DCL loving it.

    Looks fine there.

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Calm before the storm

  6. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

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

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      That’s pointless then

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

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

      2. Sun Jihai

        Hauled against Man Utd to be fair!

    1. aborg

    Harry Winks is really bad at playing football.

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years

      Cringe player.

  9. ALI_G
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    GW29 looks like only 2 or 3 games !

    1. JJO
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Its already 3?

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      FH or just ignore. . .

    3. JIMMY764
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      3/4

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Brilliant

    5. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      3, 4, or 5

  10. Finding Timo
    8 months, 19 days ago

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

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I would stayed attentive to news . . .

      1. Finding Timo
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Ok I have 2 FTs so can transfer if out

    2. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

      DCL particularly annoying with DGW24 in mind

      1. Finding Timo
        8 months, 19 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
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 19 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

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

      So fingers crossed ...

  11. aborg
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

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

  12. MIDIMAN2010
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Dias -> Stones.
    Gotta be done

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Dias will be fine

  13. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    No spurs double?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Still possible. Go to Ben Crellin's Twitter.

    2. JJO
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I think yes plus game in 29

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

      They have a definite doublex Either against Southampton or Fulham.

    4. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

  14. Eh, just one more thing ...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 19 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 ...

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

      Thanks

  15. Qaiss
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Kane to Man City in the summer?

  16. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

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

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Castagne if fit.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        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."

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Depends on formation. Either Johnny evans or Thomas

    3. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      could be Fuchs even

  17. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Pope*
    Dias* - Cancelo* - Mee*
    Bruno - Salah - Gundo* - Neto
    DCL* - Bamford - Antonio

    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.

    1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK

      Unless others are added

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

  19. JONALDINHO

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      What if you win the Carabao Cup and Europa ?

      Hope you don’t and don’t think you will but what if..

    3. Chelsea Rangers Loyal

    What was the digne injury?

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Likely subbed to avoid an injury.

    3. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK

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

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

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

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Pope out? Wut

    3. Milkman Bruno
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Justin stretchered off implies failed ACL test

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

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

  24. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    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

  25. Hazz

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

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

  27. Bam Saka Laca

    Martínez
    Cancelo | Shaw | Cresswell | Maguire
    Salah | Bruno | Sterling(c) | Gündogan | Soucek

    Johnstone | DCL | Digne | Antonio

    Roll?

    1. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That's actually a very decent team! You could roll.

    Not good.

  29. JONALDINHO

    It’s all gone pear-shaped

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