FPL GW18 Stats
Read Time:3 Minute

Differentials make or break FPL teams, especially in the next couple of gameweeks, when fixtures come hard and fast and rotations are bound to come in. There is also only 5 more GWs to GW21 to use your first wildcard, if you have not already.


FPL GW15 Differentials

Sa (WOL | GK) – 3.1%

Wolves’ Sa has been one of the most underrated players in FPL so far. He is the second highest scoring GK, only behind Chelsea’s Mendy.

In terms of saves, he has raked up 43, fifth on the list. He is also one of two GKs with a registered assist to date.

Fixtures, however, do not bode well for Wolves. Despite 3 clean sheets in a row, Wolves meet the top 3 over the next 4 fixtures. After Christmas, they play Arsenal away then Man Utd away.

Verdict: Sa has been a somewhat of surprise package to date but fixtures are really difficult. At 5.0, he is probably not shiny choice compared to other GKs.

Kilman (WOL | DEF) – 0.6%

Kilman has played every min of every game to date so far, as part of a back three for Wolves.

He has one goal to date and has 5 clean sheets.

His dollar value is good – at 4.5 there are few other consistent performers.

Verdict: As mentioned, Wolves’ fixtures do not look good but at his price he is a good option to have as a fifth defender.

Gabriel (ARS | DEF) – 2.9%

Arsenal has 6 clean sheets to date – all of which were achieved with Gabriel in the team. He also also scored once, off a corner.

There is a sense that Arsenal have achieved some stability at the back, especially against clubs outside the top 6.

Some good fixtures are coming up for the Gunners, especially at home, where they are good.

The question with Gabriel is – is he worth the 0.7 over his partner Ben White, who is owned by 11.9% of the game

Verdict: Gabriel is probably only very slightly better than White as a goal threat. Tomiyasu and White make better choice.

Dunk (BHA | DEF) – 4.4%

FPL GW16 Stats

Dunk has played every minute of every game for Brighton so far, making him a better Brighton defender pick than Duffy, who was dropped over the last 2 games.

On the attacking front, he is much less attractive than teammate Crucurella, who has been quite a find for Brighton so far. Lamptey, on his return, is at the same price point (4.4) and is a potentially OOP player.

Verdict: If your GK is already Sanchez, then it makes not much sense to double up on Brighton defensive assets. Dunk is not likely to contribute consistently on an attacking front, even though he has 5 goals last season. Lamptey looks better an option so far, until he is injured again of course.

Watkins (AVL | FWD) – 3.6%

Watkins was a FPL darling last season but had faded interest to date because of injuries and the presence of Ings.

However, it will be good to focus on Watkins’ contributions under Steven Gerrard. He has played all 270mins under the new gaffer and has scored twice, including one against Man City.

Ings is also out for a while, making Watkins the focal point of Villa again.

Without a high performing premium forward so far this season, Watkins can be a good pick on a wildcard. Villa have good fixtures against defensively poor sides like Leicester, Leeds and Norwich to come.

Verdict: BUY. Good replacement for non-performers like Antonio / Ings.
