In a huge DGW19, many differential players shone last week. James Maddison, John Stones and Michail Antonio turned out to be solid picks that did very well.
However, looking at GW20, we’re going back to a normal week of 10 Premier League games. Cheap games lie ahead of us for several sites as we look at five different options for you and your fantasy teams.
With Tuesday’s deadline fast approaching, these cheap, little-owned picks will help you stand out in your mini-leagues …
Bernardo Silva – Manchester City (£ 7.4m)
Man City are arguably the best team at the moment and they have a great game against West Brom. West Brom have the worst defensive record in the Premier League, facing a rampant side from the city who have scored 10 goals in their last four league games.
With Kevin De Bruyne out with a hamstring injury for the next 4 to 6 weeks, City midfield must be reinforced if they are to maintain form. Silva has started his last six league games and scored his first goal of the season against Aston Villa last week.
Owned by just 0.9% of players, it’s a great differentiation option instead of going with Ilkay Gundogan (£ 5.5m) or Phil Foden (£ 6.3m), who already belong to many.
Silva is undoubtedly a player who is trying to do his best again. After a calm campaign so far, this could be the time to trust Silva to fill the void De Bruyne has left.
Bukayo Saka – Arsenal (£ 5.3m)
Arsenal’s league resurgence continues in Southampton as they seek revenge after a 1-0 loss to the Saints in the FA Cup on Saturday. Despite their poor performance, the Gunners are still unbeaten in their last six league games, and much of that is thanks to Bukayo Saka.
The 19 year old has been in great shape this season and is an incredible £ 5.3m worth. He has scored three goals and made two assists in his last five games – including one against Newcastle United last weekend.
Despite owning 10.3% of the owners, Saka remains at the heart of Arsenal’s attack. He was rested in her FA Cup game before serving as an impact sub for the final half hour.
Arsenal needed more offensive flair this year and Saka was the one who brought it up for them. It’s definitely a good, cheap option for the GW20.
Vladimir Coufal – West Ham United (4.8 m)
West Ham right-back Vladimir Coufal has been in impressive shape since signing for the club earlier this season. The Czech international was an integral part of West Ham’s excellent campaign that put them in seventh place in the table.
They are now unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions and have remained clean five times during that time. You will play against a fighting team from Crystal Palace that has only won one game in their last nine games in all competitions.
Coufal, who owns 7.4% of FPL managers, has also produced four assists this season, including one last week against West Brom.
While West Ham’s alternative full-back option, Aaron Cresswell, is owned by 18.7% of managers, Coufal is a great differentiation option as they try to score another goal on the road.
Edinson Cavani – Manchester United (£ 7.8m)
Man United striker Edinson Cavani has been a top sign for Solskjaer so far this season. He has only started four league games but has already scored four goals and produced two assists.
Owning just 3.6% of FPL managers, Cavani has shown a solid performance, scoring a goal in the 2-1 win over Fulham last week.
Now that he’s established in the Premier League, Cavani could start more games and could be picked off off against Sheffield United. The Blades already have one of the worst defensive records in the league with 32 goals conceded.
United, on the other hand, are still at the top of the table and will try to maintain their good form with an offensive performance against a team that has only won once all season.
Bertrand Traore – Aston Villa (£ 5.9m)
After a tough 2-2 loss to Man City last weekend, Aston Villa put in an impressive display to beat Newcastle by the same result. Bertrand Traore was one of their top performers in that match and scored a goal himself.
Traore is starting to find his way around this Villa team after arriving from Lyon for £ 17million this summer. He has now scored four goals in his last six games and is one of the first names on the team’s sheet.
Traore is only owned by a surprising 0.6% of FPL managers and is a great differential option. While 36.6% of managers chose his teammate Jack Grealish, Traore can still bring you valuable attack returns.
Villa will join a strong Burnley side who, since April 2017 last week, became the first team to beat Liverpool in the league at Anfield. Villa have been a good team this season however and Traore will be important to their hopes of moving up further.
