Sick of being trash at Fantasy Premier League? These 5 low-owned players could turn your season around!
Ah, fantasy football. Barely has the Premier League season restarted, and I find myself casting aside the laptop in a fit of rage.
I captained Marcus Rashford for a seemingly inevitable haul against Brighton. Cue 4 measly points.
However, if you’re looking to shake things up for the final few weeks of the season, consider the following five differentials for the season run in:
- Christian Pulisic – £7.1m (7.4% ownership)
The USA’s latest export to the English game has been Chelsea’s star player since the restart. The winger has been scored twice and supplied two assists in three matches, and will prove pivotal as Chelsea look to secure Champions League football next year.
2. Allan Saint Maximin – £5.5m (2.8% ownership)
The French forward took a while to ignite in Newcastle colours, but has been in unstoppable form since the league restarted three weeks ago. Having hit three assists and a goal in that time, the jet-heeled winger will certainly be entertaining to watch over the coming weeks.
3. Tariq Lamptey – £4.0m – (0.4% ownership)
The 19 year old Englishman has impressed since the resumption, and was solid at the back during Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Leicester. Despite a 3-0 home loss to Manchester United, Brighton can benefit from an attractive upcoming fixture run. Four of their six remaining opponents are in the bottom half, giving the defender ample chance to secure some differential points.
4. Jonny Otto – £5.4m – (1.4% ownership)
The Spanish wing-back has been an integral part of Wolves’ consistency since the league’s restart. The Wanderers have won three times without conceding, as they look to climb into the Champions League spots. The defender also bagged himself an assist and maximum bonus points in their last outing against Villa, and could be a source of differential returns in Wolves’ final six matches.
5. Jarrod Bowen – £6.4m (0.2% ownership)
Brought in during the January transfer window, Bowen has recently shown glimpses of his undoubted potential. The West Ham forward bagged two assists during their 3-2 win over Chelsea, and could benefit from a kind upcoming schedule. The Hammers are still deep in the relegation mire, and fixtures against their rivals could see Bowen profit from more attacking opportunities.
Whilst they may not be the most obvious picks, their low total ownership could see them reap huge rewards for those willing to take a punt.
As with all fantasy sports, FPL is “just a game”. But if it’s a game where you can steal a march on your mates, who wouldn’t want a bit of that?
