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.

        I’ve been told Justin was stretchered off but it shows he’s not playing.

        1. No Professionals

          What? He started and got stretchered off.

          Maybe it was the last game. But he’s not flagged for me.

                Haha. Shows just how in the know I am thinking he plays for Everton.

                    I also want to take this opportunity to say sorry to you Rupert...

                    I don't agree with quite a few of your fantasy proclamations, and don't want to think you're a donkey...

                  Yeah but that doesn’t work when I was looking at the wrong game. 😆

          He's not playing anymore. From BBC:

          SUBSTITUTION
          Leicester 0-0 Brighton

          Let's hope that's not too bad for James Justin but he looks distraught. Off he comes with veteran Christian Fuchs on in his place.

          He was stretchered off. And yes, he is not playing after that.

        Lamela is an idiot but at least he takes his man on as passes forward, way to many square ball merchants in the game these days

        The only people who actually care about the FA cup are people playing FPL waiting for injury news, or 46th division teams who accidentally qualified.

          The 8 million people who watched the game on BBC1 last night would disagree.

            That young man who scored his first goal for Swansea against City would disagree

            Anyone got Dias who’s worried?

            Given people are clocking onto the Pope stuff, reposting the source - Talksport interview with Sean Dyche:

            https://youtu.be/Hc7ls5GS7kU

            At 03:09, Dyche is talking about injuries:

            "We've run out of players. Last time we were missing Pope and Cork who hopefully will be alright but they had to miss that game. Woods still out, Brownhill still out, Brady still out, Taylor still out.

            We've got a couple of young lads coming in. We've got Johann who we're still trying to be careful with and we've got loads of games coming. It's just really tough because the priority remains the Premier League."

            Not quite panic stations, but an FYI.

                  It was last night. I copied this from a comment in Reddit that transcribed it wrong.

                  He definitely meant Last Night I.e. The FA Cup Match.

                  Sounds like last night to me too, but his hopeful sounds to me like Pope will be fine

                4 months, 6 days ago

                    Best chance of the 3. (4 including Wood)

                    Someone needs reminding that Burnley have scored 14 goals in total so far this season

                  HOT TAKE: Ricardo Pereira will be the highest owned defender by GW 28.

                    Is Ricardo nailed when Justin is back?

                    Needs 2.33 millions transfers in. Where can I put down a bet against it?

                      a) Your odds will not be good for that bet. I am going out on a limb.
                      b) Justin's injury looks very serious at first glance and he's the highest owned DEF at the moment.
                      c) Cresswell is the 2nd highest owned and WHU's fixtures really turn.
                      d) Pereira is absolute quality.
                      e) I'll be here to say "I told you so"

                    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.

                    A) Soucek + Mitcehll -> Gundo + Bur def
                    B) Soucek + Mitchell -> Gundo + Dallas
                    C) Soucek + Coufal -> Gundo + Bur def/Dallas

                      A, and then can get bur def out for Dallas in time for DGW

                    Sterling the bigger captaincy pull now that Gundogan could (potentially) be forced to play deeper?

                      Why would he be forced to play deeper?
