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.

    OMG Brighton concede, this is sad news

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Is it?

    2. Magic Zico

      Oh blimey ... aagghh

      Why?

        10 months, 1 day ago

        No DGW for Brighton. We miss out on loads of cheap options for the DGW benchboost

    FT Burnley & Leicester blank gw29

  3. djman102
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    So Brighton-Newcastle is ON for GW 29.
    Burnley-Leicester likely rescheduled for GW 26.

    Current team:

    Areola
    Cancelo, Stones, Cressy
    Barnes, Son, Gundo, Salah, Penandes
    DCR, Antonio

    Johnstone, Coufal, AWB, Bamford

    1FT £3.4m ITB

    Thinking of doing

    A) Antonio & Barnes —-> DCL & Lookman -4

    Or do I go nuts and do

    B) Stones, Barnes, Son & Antonio —-> Takowski, Lookman, Sterling & DCL for a -12

    Or

    C) Something else?

    1. Dasher0303

      Definitely play AWB first of all. Second, don’t do B unless you are 100% wildcarding next week because you don’t wanna lose DGW players like Son who could haul. And Antonio had a good fixture this week so would be wary about getting rid.

      1. MoSalad
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        A it is then haha. I’m convinced Antonio has done his hammy and isn’t fatigued.

        But the DCL is now down.

    FA Cup so far:
    My players: rested/managed
    Others: injured/run ragged

    Justin, Dias, don't have 'em... It's the small wins.

    1. GE
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Dias injured?

    2. Saka_me_sideways

      You jinxed it, DCL injured now

      1. CroatianHammer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 23 hours ago

        See below 😀

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      Definitely one of life’s winners - well done

      Do you have DCL by any chance?

      1. CroatianHammer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 23 hours ago

        Yup. Total jinx. The cosmic ballet continues.

    Happy with Leicester goal - getting BB budget options would be too easy for those with WC/BB in hand if Brighton were to have a dgw26

  7. JJO
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    So we will have 2 matches in gw29?
    Not that great for freehiters

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      If you have it, you don't have to play it in that week.

      1. JJO
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah ofcourse
        I already used it anyway

    2. djman102
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Up to 3 now.

      1. JJO
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Whats the third one?

        1. djman102
          • 12 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Fulham-Leeds
          West Ham-Arsenal
          Brighton-Newcastle

        2. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          3rd one is bha -NEW now that Brighton is losing tonight. 3 matches with low owned teams actually pretty good for FH imho. But if Spurs Villa is on in bgw29, FH will be less of an advantage I should think

          1. Konstaapeli
            • 5 Years
            10 months, 1 day ago

            Exactly.

    3. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Villa vs Spurs could still move to GW29

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Spurs v southampton might still be on depending on 2morow

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Early FHers win then

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Wasn't the free hit average of the early FHers pretty poor? Loads saved it and got within 10 points of them.

        1. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Yes it was. I used it and did not benefit a lot especially since Tierney was injured.

  8. Bam Saka Laca
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Kane on

  9. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Villa DGW likely Leeds & Sheffield away.
    Sheffield DW likely Liverpool & Villa home.

    Leicester DGW likely Arsenal home & Burnley away.
    Burnley DGW likely Spurs away & Leicester home.

    1. Dasher0303
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Grealish and Martinez looking essential. Maybe Maddison or Barnes or pereira (if justin injured) looking good?

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Jack (TC) locked in.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Guess I'll keep Martinez and avoid injured Pope then

    4. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Nice fixtures for Villa attack and defense

  10. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Would have been a decent 26 for Justin also.

  11. fedolefan
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Brighton vs Newcastle on in GW29 then. Guess my boy Sanchez is staying for the season.

      Dcl who knows, maybe more precautionary sub, he didn't seem in too much difficulty.
