Three FPL differentials to consider for Gameweek 38

Gameweek 38 offers Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers a final opportunity to identify a differential to inspire a final push up the rankings.

This time, we’ve selected low-owned picks at Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United who we think have the potential to make an impact.

As always, to qualify, the player must have an ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

YOANE WISSA

  • FPL ownership: 0.1%
  • Price: £5.7m
  • GW38 fixture: LEE

Despite a stop-start debut season at Brentford, Yoane Wissa (£5.7m) has been one of his team’s top performers of late.

The Congolese winger joined from French side Lorient for £8.5m in August but has taken time to adjust to Thomas Frank’s approach.

Earlier in the season, he came off the bench to score in successive matches against Liverpool and West Ham United, but was then dropped after his manager said he needed to “work harder off the ball”.

However, Wissa’s performances have picked up in his two most recent outings and there are clear signs that he is finally starting to settle. Against Southampton in Gameweek 36, his strike from outside of the box was impressive, before he then created one goal and scored another at Goodison Park last weekend.  

In spite of that mixed start, Wissa is Brentford’s second-top scorer in the league this season behind Ivan Toney (£6.8m). He has seven goals, which is a very decent return considering he has only started 11 of the 37 matches. As a result, his 0.49 goals per 90 minutes ranks tenth among all Premier League players, highlighting his potential when afforded pitch time. Bryan Mbeumo (£5.2m), meanwhile, who has partnered Toney up front for much of the season, has started 33, yet has only found the net on four occasions.

An excellent 10-game run has seen Brentford leap up to 11th in the Premier League table, with a potential top-half finish on offer if they can beat Leeds United at home on the final day. Only Watford have kept fewer clean sheets than the Whites this season and while Jesse Marsch did oversee an initial defensive improvement, the fixtures have stiffened over the last four Gameweeks and the goal concessions have been flying in again.

Wissa’s place in the starting XI isn’t completely assured, especially when Frank uses a 3-5-2 formation. However, recent performances have been very good in a 4-3-3, which suggests he will be handed another opportunity to impress from the left in Gameweek 38.

EMERSON ROYAL

Emerson Royal offering differential potential between now and end of FPL season
  • FPL ownership: 2.3%
  • Price: £4.6m
  • GW38 fixture: nor

Following the inclusion of Ryan Sessegnon (£4.3m) in last week’s column, this time it’s the turn of team-mate Emerson Royal (£4.6m).

Owned by just 2.3% of FPL managers, the wing-back has recently been handed a run of starts and stepped up in the absence of Matt Doherty (£4.5m) following his season-ending injury.

From Gameweek 31 onwards, Emerson has returned a goal, four clean sheets and two bonus across his eight appearances, producing 38 FPL points. Amongst all defenders, only Joel Matip (£5.2m), Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) and Marc Cucurella (£4.9m) have managed more, while he also ranks sixth for expected goal involvement (xGI) in that time.

The question for many is, which of Antonio Conte’s wing-backs is the better pick for Gameweek 38? In truth, they are both excellent options, but when comparing Emerson and Sessegnon’s underlying numbers since Gameweek 34, the latter has been the more creative of the pair, laying on a whopping five big chances for his team-mates. However, Royal edges the goal threat metrics, leading on goal attempts (6/3) shots in the box (5/3), efforts on target and big chances (both 2/0).

At this stage, we should point out that this is a very small sample size we are working with, but the above data is encouraging ahead of Sunday’s trip to Carrow Road. It’s also worth noting that Norwich City’s left side has been susceptible to conceding chances all season, with Dimitris Giannoulis (£4.4m) run ragged by Chiquinho (£5.5m) at Molineux last time out.

Royal has impressed for Spurs of late and now showing increased consistency, could be an effective differential for the final day.

CALLUM WILSON

Newcastle and Man City differentials to consider for Gameweek 9
  • FPL ownership: 1.2%
  • Price: £7.1m
  • GW38 fixture: bur

Callum Wilson (£7.1m) turned in a man-of-the-match display on his return to action in Gameweek 37 after four months out.

The former Bournemouth man played just under 90 minutes and could have scored twice, whilst also playing a crucial role in both of his side’s goals.

Offering a different dynamic to that of Chris Wood (£6.3m), Wilson bullied the Gunners’ defence and ran the channels brilliantly, ending the match with team-leading totals for goal attempts, shots in the box and penalty box touches.

“Immense performance when you consider how long he’s been out and the type of injury it was. To deliver that on his first game back, I can’t say enough positive words about that performance. You see behind the scenes how he’s conducted himself and how hard he’s worked and it doesn’t surprise me because I’ve seen it times before in previous years but you have to back it with the performance.” – Eddie Howe on Callum Wilson

Wilson has missed a large chunk of the 2021/22 season but despite his lengthy absence, is still Newcastle’s top scorer this season with six goals. It’s also worth noting that he has found the net at a rate of a goal almost every other game since moving to Tyneside, with an impressive 18 in 38 starts.

Now, he will be hoping to add to that tally and end his season on a high when Eddie Howe’s side travel to Burnley on Sunday. The Clarets are fighting for their lives near the bottom of the table, but have allowed 11 goals in their last six home matches, whilst also conceding the fourth-most chances from the centre of the pitch under Mike Jackson, an area Wilson thrives in.

And Newcastle are in very good form, too. In fact, only Liverpool, Manchester City and Spurs have taken more points since the turn of the year.

Wilson is a real difference-maker for Newcastle, and could be a decent mid-price punt for those willing to take a gamble in Gameweek 38.

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 32?

    Lost on previous article...

    2nd in my ML, 17 points behind 1st.

    Used a FT to buy Kulu. Is anything in my team worth a hit? My team isn’t ideal, but I feel as though he will take 1/2 hits which would mean I’m only 9-13 points behind.

    His team (0.1 ITB) ;

    Schmeichel

    James, Cancelo, Robertson, Matip (dalot)

    Salah, Son, Maddison, Mount (Gordon)

    Watkins, Jesus (Nketiah)

    My Team (0.7 ITB) ;

    Pope

    Alonso, Cancelo, TAA (Schar, Digne)

    KDB, Son, Kulusevski, Saka, Zaha

    Nketiah, Richarlison (Ings)

    Stick? Or any hit suggestions?

      Good to go I think. The two teams are very different, both good teams tbh. So you have a chance especially if they take a few hits

      1. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Thanks Rafa, hope you’re well mate!

    2. nolard
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      If I was your opponent, I'd take max one hit.

      Salah and Watkins out would be the moves I'd make.
      Who to get is harder.
      If I was blocking guy, KDB is obvious, but that rules out getting Vardy I think up front, so not sure who to go for there. I guess moving Jesus instead and playing Nkietah could be an option if that allows for Vardy.
      Diaz- Kane is another poss.

      For you, there is not too much now as you already made one move.
      Ings/Rich the players that I'd like to swap out. Not too many clear candidates, as two hits would be too much I think.

      1. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks for the reply, some food for thought there for me.

        I think I may as well just sit in my hands and hope he takes a hit or two which don’t pay off…..

    3. The bean
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      He will probably look to take kane in for salah along with some1 else. Could be a close finish.

    Morning all 🙂
    Best move here? Playing for rank (1k finish ideally but not sure I’ll make it!). Cheers

    A. Salah >> Son(C)
    B. Salah >> Mane(C)

    1. Numero Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'd go for A out of those. Last week I'd avoid taking a hit, Son chasing golden boot against Norwich seems like a good move.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yes it does tbf. I guess then it’s just a case of if a hit is worth it to change Davies to James or Kulu/Barnes (as I’d bench Davies).

    2. Bruno Commando
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A or C depending on how confident you are about James.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yeah I think those are the best two picks laying it all out. Or Kulu/Barnes could be nice

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Cheers fella

    4. antis0cial

      A

    5. nolard
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      If you want to climb, B or D.

      1. nolard
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        all decent options I think. So more a gut thing.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah, I like them all mate. I do wonder if Kane is the best captain, but Son has really really hurt me this season

          1. nolard
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Depends how Norwich set up imo.
            We saw how Burnley sat deep. That really hurts Son's prospects compared to Kane.
            Kane is on pens, which is likely with lots of penalty box action against a deep camping team.

            That said, Norwich have been leaking goals.
            I'd would prefer Kane if chasing a bit.

    6. 404_FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      E Son + Kulu

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Would you expect a spurs clean sheet? If so Kulu would need to score 10 to get the hit back

    7. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Near identical team to mine other than I have James instead of Robbo.

      A for sure and that is my final transfer for the season, good luck!

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Is it enough to break back into the top 1k? Think I’m 11pts off now

  4. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    53Pts behind my ML leader, too much to chase down right?

    1. Numero Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      You'd have to go balls out compared with the leader. Whatever they have, go for someone else and cap them, but realistically it's unlikely, that's a big gap.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Too big sadly. Just enjoy the last day and have some fun

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I’m chasing 225pts and going for it. You can do it!

    4. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      My ML leader had a 80 point lead coming into this week and it's down to 14 now. Obviously a FH helps, but it's doable. As Richarlison shows, it normally all comes down to your captain (and Maddison in this case...).

    5. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Thanks lads, think i will just have a little fun for the last game of the season, Cheers

  5. Numero Bruno
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Terrible start to the season, climbed a ML of 40 and now just ahead by 1 solitary point, £240 on the line.

    1FT. I'm thinking Livra to Sess or Dier - any spurs fans have any thoughts on which would be best? Sess nailed?

    Any other suggestions welcome:

    Sanchez
    James, Alonso, TAA, Matip (Livra)
    KDB, Son, Saka (Martinelli, Broja)
    Kane, Richarlison (Broja)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Sess easy for me

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Reguilon is back in training, but I'd still go Sess.

    3. Numero Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      *Ramsey other mid, not Broja

  6. Kodap
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Which of these two do you prefer for the final day? Leading my ML by 90 points so don't mind a bit of a punt.. (will be moving out Salah & Coutinho for..) I can't afford both KDB & Mane, but one of those two with either of the other.

    1. KDB
    2. Mount
    3. Mane
    4. Bowen

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Can you afford KDB and Diaz?

      1. Boly Would
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        If not I'd go Mount

    2. buzzkill
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      KDB is a big game player and its a very big game.
      Too hard to call the other one but I remember Mane going big final day last season so shame you can't get him but still rather Kevin. Mount for the other. Rested and against Watford

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      First two

    4. 404_FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      1+2

  7. RedJive79
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Just a 17 point lead in money ML......

    His likely starting team:
    Schmeichel
    James / Alonso / TAA / Robbo / Laporte
    Son / Kulu / Maddi / Foden
    Richa

    Dubra / Saka / Broja / Weghorst

    My current team:
    Schmeichel
    Robbo / Cancelo / Matip / Bavies
    Saka / Mount / KDB / Salah / Son(c)
    Watkins

    Steele / Veltman / Scarlett / Dobbin

    The question is, do I have enough to stay ahead or do I need to swap Salah and Scarlett for Kane and Gordon and play 442? Or bring in James and Maddi, for example, and try to cancel out his players?
    Any suggestions are very welcome! Tnx

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Salah to Mané?

      1. RedJive79
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        If Salah is def out, I could do that plus Watkins to Wilson for -4.....

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Wilson looked amazing Monday and could really bang. Depends on his recovery this week but he’ll be chomping at the bit to grab a goal in the last game

    2. Numero Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'd avoid a hit with just a 17 point lead, could be the difference between winning/losing.

      Does your budget allow a 'partial block' i.e. Cancelo to TAA? TAA should play, difficult to say with James.

      1. RedJive79
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I have nothing ITB so can't do that, unfortunately.

        1. Numero Bruno
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Your team is in pretty good shape, better than his, but Cancelo to Alonso might be an option. His last game, he should play I'd have thought?

          If Salah is defo looking out, maybe Foden for him, leaves some extra budget if you do take a hit with another 'block'

    3. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'd just do Salah>Mane in your position. I would avoid a hit.

    This may be a daft question for some.
    When do your transfer hits get deducted?
    My FPL rival took an 8pt hit this GW37, yet it hasn't registered.

      I thought it was as soon as the GW starts, i.e. when the GW column says '0' in the ML, they've already deducted at that point - I've seen red/green arrows at that point before scores come in for the week

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I should know this by now, but I think the answer is it never shows on their GW total, but is deducted automatically from their OR rank/total. But it still confuses me after 12 years.

      When the game updates after the GW deadline. So last Sunday morning in this case.

    hey guys, im currently 11pts ahead in my ML.. got 1 FT 1.5 ITB.. any suggestions on best strategy?

    My team:
    Schmeicel Foster
    TAA Cancelo Matip Laporte Alonso
    Salah KDB Saka KUlu KDH
    Nketia Dennis Pukki

    His team:
    Rams Foster
    Taa Alonso Myko Fofana Cancelo
    Salah Son KDB Brownhill Gordon
    Richa Nketia Dennis

    1. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      What are you considering? It's a bit easier to give views on options, rather than plan out your whole strategy.

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        thanks mate, my thinking is to at least get Son (worried as he has him).. but wouldnt mind also getting Maddison for KDH or Richa for Dennis to negate those two assets of his.. but would mean a -4

        1. Pegboy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Richarlison isn't worth a hit, even if he has him.

          I would strongly advise avoid taking a hit to block players in your position, as your making his life easier catching 7 points instead of 11.

          You need Son, IMO, and Salah looks the only way (though it's risky as he has him).

          For me it's a choice between:

          a)Salah>Son(c)
          b)Salah + KDH>Son(c) + Maddison

          I'd go A, just.

          1. tibollom
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            yea that's my thinking, worried about Salah as I doubt he will get rid of him (and is a pool fan).. You are right, the hit is very risky.. I think he will C Son as well...IF salah hauls im in sh*t though...

    Which order would you do this bench please?

    (A) Pukki
    (B) Gordon
    (C) White

    Thanks.

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Toss up between A and C first

      1. Pegboy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Agree. I'd probably lean C,A,B, but it's close.

    2. 404_FC
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A C B

        horse driving surely

      2. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I'm still a novice so I think that would be bad for everyone

  19. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Need to gain 20 pts on ML leader, who will cap Son. Do I go Kane cap?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Yes

  20. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Would you expect a Spurs clean sheet?

    Considering if Davies >> James or Kulu (bench Davies) is worth a -4.

    They’d need to score potentially 10 or more if they did clean sheet.

    1. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Good chance, I'd play Davies

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I'm not sure James starts (I own him) so would avoid that move. I doubt Bavies>Kulu is worth a hit.

  21. RedRo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Come on my players

  22. John78
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Salah to Son or KDB? Have Kane. Leading my ml by 33 points

    Rival has KDB but no Kane and no Son.

    1. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Son

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      In your situation I would consider KDB, if you're relatively confident he isn't bringing in Son.

      1. John78
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        He definitely has the funds to get Son. i am not sure what he will do.

        To him KDB would be a differential captain to catch 33 points. or he could go Son because for now I do not have Son.

        1. Pegboy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Tough one. I'd probably go Son and captain him.

  23. RedRo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Need to catch 8 points but have Nketiah, James, Robertson vs his Rudiger, Maddison, Richarlison - do I even need a differential C?

    1. FPL_ UP_Down
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      James Like a good punt IF Chelsea are to keep clean Sheet
      I’m in Same delima! Where you will think most people will go Son ( C)

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yeah, definitely considering Chelsea. Maybe Mount

    2. John78
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Yes. Maddison and Richarlison might outperform your 3 players.

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks mate

    3. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I would aim to captain a different player than him, but don't go too different. Who are you choosing between?

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Makes sense, thank you - he’ll likely go Son - I’d say I’m most tempted by Mount or one of KDB/Cancelo.

        1. Pegboy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          KDB would be my choice. But Mount is also a decent shout - I can't imagine Watford will turn up.

          1. RedRo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Thank you mate

    I have Nketiah, Richarlison and Watkins.

    Don't really fancy playing any of them.

    Should I sell for Toney and start? Got 8.4m to spend

    Will only play one striker

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Maybe sell Rich > Toney as Everton will be at ease now they are safe and play some of their other players

    1. 404_FC
      • 7 Years

      TAA/Robbo
      Cancelo
      James/Alonso

    Morning! Chasing in my ML, managed to close the gap from 70+ to 28 points. 2nd place gives me my money back, but want to push for 1st

    My team:

    Ramsdale
    Robertson, Cancelo, James, Laporte
    Son, Maddison, Mount, Zaha
    Richarlison, Vardy
    Pickford, Gordon, Watkins, Cash
    1FT, 0.0 ITB

    Rival's team:

    Schmeichel, Foster
    TAA, Alonso, Cancelo, Robertson, Laporte
    Coutinho, Salah, Saka, Havertz, Gordon
    Nketiah, Pukki, Dennis
    1FT 1.4 ITB

    He will likely do Salah -> Son, maybe another paid transfer like Coutinho -> Mount/Foden, or Pukki/Dennis -> Jesus. Will prob captain Son

    What should I do?

    A - Laporte, Watkins, Richarlison -> fodder, fodder, Kane (-8)
    B - Watkins, Vardy -> Broja, Kane (-4)
    C - your suggestions

    1. FPL_ UP_Down
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      No no don’t take many Hits!!
      Niketah and Pukki won’t score in Rival Team! You got Vardy can handle that ! Max -4 I think

    2. FPL_ UP_Down
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Broja is useless don’t even go there! Play Watkins

    3. FPL_ UP_Down
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      C Rich to Toney!

    4. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Not a fan of either of those suggestions.

      I'd be looking at shipping Havertz & Coutinho for some combination of Mount, KDB, Mane, Diaz, Barnes, Bowen.

      Or if you really want Kane, you need to get rid of Salah and do it in -4.

    Chelsea fans and everyone else. How much risk is Alonso and James to be rotated.
    Answers in % please.

    1. pundit of punts

      Rotated for what?

      It’s the last game of their season

    2. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years

      Likely I'd say after Tuchel's comments.. expect Saul/Kennedy at LWB not sure about Reece though

      1. Pegboy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Not a Chelsea fan, but...

        Alonso 50%
        James 30%

  28. pundit of punts
    • 9 Years

    GTG?

    Schmeichel
    TAA - Cancelo - Alonso
    Son (c) - Mount - Saka - Barnes - Kulusevski
    Vardy - Nketiah

    Pickford - Richarlison - Cash - Dias

    No hits. OR 964. Desperate to get top 1k.

    Would you play Richarlison over any of the attackers?

    Thanks in advance. 🙂

  29. DavvaMC
