With half of the Premier League season getting over, the table has started to take shape. Fantasy Premier League managers will now be thinking of re-building their initial Fantasy Squads ahead of FPL Gameweek 28. Amongst the roster, there are a few lesser-used players who are still bringing in a stream of good, underlying returns. Here is a list of a few FPL GW 28 Differentials that you can bring into your teams.
In contrast to the mainstream popular assets, these players are owned by just a small portion of all FPL managers, meaning a point-haul return from them can greatly boost your overall rank and earn you more points than your competition. It needs to be noted that these players are all quite risky, try to take in only a couple for your starting XI. Future fixtures might make some of these suggestions appear as a step in the wrong direction for the long term. However, do keep in mind that these are all picked based on their short-term games.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (Midfielder) – 6.8 million
Everton’s very-own creative playmaker looks promising this week. Everton comes up against Burnley in their next round, a team that is known for its inevitable shakiness in defence. It needs is a simple creative spark to snap it open and Sigurdsson could be the key to causing just that. The Icelander has scored 4 and assisted 4, creating a total of 4 big chances and averaging 1.1 key passes per game. He is a real threat along with Everton going forward. With the likes of Richarlison and DCL being partnered at the frontline, Sigurdsson could supply some real damage for them. Although a little costly at 6.8 million, the 31-year-old is found in just 1.9% of all FPL squads. A very high-risk-high-reward player.
Daniel Amartey (Defender) – 3.9 million
After playing the full 90 and scoring the winning goal last time out against Brighton, the Leicester defender achieved a surprise 10-pointer to shock a lot of FPL managers. It would not be surprising seeing Brendan Rodgers, the Leicester manager, utilising Amartey once more. Leicester invites Sheffield United to the King Power Stadium, a team that sits down at the bottom of the table, having been able to score just 16 goals all season, the worst in the league. If Leicester plays their game well, they will likely come away with a clean sheet and Amartey could be a starter. For 3.9 million and ownership of just 1.4%, it is difficult to cause a serious blunder here.
Eberechi Eze (Midfielder) – 5.8 million
Although on poor form currently, Palace is one of the teams granted with a comfortable fixture, against 19th West Brom. They’ve conceded a huge 56 goals, the worst out of all the teams in the Premier League. If there was a match in which Palace could dominate in attack, it would be this one. Eze is a strong drive in the Palace attack, tallying 3 goals and 3 assists in total, earning him 85 points altogether. With ownership of just 1%, Eze can prove to be a brilliant differential.
Jannik Vestergaard (Defender) – 4.7 million
After returning back to the starting XI from the sidelines, Vestergaard has already begun to establish his presence in the Southampton defence. He has scored 3 from set-piece situations and also won the penalty against Man City in the box. He is without a doubt, a serious threat in the box and looks to go for more goals. Weirdly, he averages 1.4 shots per game as a defender, which is the 2nd highest at Southampton. The Saints face Brighton who although is a strong team defensively, are relatively weak in attack, which opens the doors for a possible clean sheet as well. With ownership of just 3.5%, Vestergaard could be a brilliant asset to your team.
