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.

      Captain?

      1. yakirh

        Injured

    Are people wanting Spurs or Everton to win? I don't understand lol.

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years

      Spurs.
      Better for the no WC but FH29 😀

      Depends whether you want gw26 to be in the mud or bountyful

    3. Mr. O'Connell

      Not getting involved with the permutations. Enjoying the matches and playing the fixtures as they're laid out.

      Ideally Everton win tonight and Saints win tomorrow for maximum carnage if you have your chips

      Everton win means they likely have a DGW of SOU/wba in 26. It could also mean AVL-TOT gets put in 29 meaning both could double in 26 and play 29.

      Spurs win means the small chance of a TGW for them stays alive. Also possible DGW of BUR/SOU in 26.

      1. Salarrivederci
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 2 days ago

        Surely Burnley are most likely to play Spurs and Leicester if they get a DGW26 right?

        1. djman102
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 2 days ago

          Burnley would play Spurs & Leicester. Spurs could have Burnley & Southampton.

    1. Bram
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

  9. Miguel Sanchez

    Pope yellow flagged

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      All saving grace is if pope is out you wouldn’t want any Burnley defence

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 2 days ago

      What's wrong with him??

      1. Miguel Sanchez

    This season is like dancing with a panzerfaust, never know when you'll get your feet blown off.

    1. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 2 days ago

      No, but in trouble and straight down the tunnel.

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 2 days ago

      Yep went straight down the tunnel for treatment

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 2 days ago

      Just a bit of fatigue, should be fine in a few weeks

  13. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 2 days ago

    Pope injured I think

    1. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 2 days ago

      He'll be fine

  14. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 2 days ago

    DCL injured ? Or just subbed?

  15. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 2 days ago

    Might have to play 541 if dcl is out

  16. Mweene
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 2 days ago

    Very relieved that I held out on getting DCL in.

    Might just use the transfer on selling Justin now.

  17. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 2 days ago

    My team has 3 yellows. Pope/Dias/Antonio. Wtf!!!

    1. Dirty Harry

  18. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 2 days ago

    Just noticed I have 2 fts instead of 1. Small wins after Justin injury.

    Shame is that I was planning a second transfer/hit to get Dcl in but now he went also off slightly injured.
