The 29th gameweek of the English Premier League is almost upon us and so is the Fantasy Premier League deadline. In this gameweek a lot of teams play twice and hence the possibility of a high-scoring gameweek becomes imminent. Apart from the popular picks, there are quite a number of players, who have impressed over the weekend with points and underlying stats. The onset of good fixtures along with their form can really turn them into good replacements for the underperforming assets of the fantasy team. All the managers are trying to stabilize their teams with suitable options before the price hikes. In this article, we compiled 5 differentials for FPL Gameweek 29, 2021/22 to boost your rankings which others may not even notice!
FPL Gameweek 29 Differentials 2021/22
1. Fabian Schär (Defender) – 4.3 million
Firstly, considering a double gameweek for the Magpies, the Swiss defender might be a decent choice. Selected by only 1.8% of managers, he gifted 32 FPL points to his owners in the past 4 weeks, gaining a form of 5.5 as per FPL. Newcastle United plays two away games this GW 29, against Chelsea and Everton, and managers can anticipate decent returns from him if they want to trust a double gameweek player.
Schär has 0.8 shots per game ratio, which majorly constitutes headers from setpieces. Also, Newcastle is the only team besides Liverpool and Arsenal to be in an unbeaten 5-game run. In this instance, Schär may be risky, yet a choice worth taking a shot, especially due to his recent form, which saw an assist and a goal from him in 2 games.
2. Sergio Reguilon (Defender) – 5.2 Million
The Spanish side back has played 22 matches for Tottenham Hotspur this season and has scored 2 goals and assisted thrice before being out on injury. The defender has returned from injury for the London side against Everton and was one of the most creative players on the pitch, scoring from his first touch from the bench.
Tottenham Spurs plays two games this double gameweek 29 against Manchester United and Brighton Hove Albion both being away from home, but the form they are currently in looks pretty promising for them to grab all six points possible.
Sergio Reguilon has effective ownership of less than 1% among the top 10k fantasy premier league managers and less than 5% among the top 100k FPL users. His impressive statistics in the game averaging almost 3 offensive actions per 90 minutes of football leading to a goal or a shot on goal, alongside 3.31 progressive carries recorded per match makes him a potential differential option for gameweek 29 justify his price tag of 5.2 million euros.
3. Andrew Robertson (Defender) – 7.2 Million
Liverpool fullbacks are an obvious choice in fantasy teams. However, Trent Alexander-Arnold has been the more popular choice of fantasy managers so far. His fullback partner, the Scottsman Robertson, has only 7.3% ownership. For a player who has had combined 19 points in the past 2 gameweeks, this low ownership seems kind of undermining. This is the reason why he might be a great differential choice, especially as an alternative to Trent in the defense.
Robertson is ranked 2nd in the Creativity index among defenders, and 3rd in the overall ICT index among the defenders. His 10 assists, 11 Clean-sheets, and a goal this season are enhanced with a 0.24 xA per 90 and 0.30 xG+xA per 90. Besides, his 3.75 shot-creating actions per 90 and 3.55 crosses per 90 in the PL, make him a differential choice worth considering at the moment, also due to his current 6.4 form.
Besides, it is a known fact that Liverpool has been defensively sober so far this season in the PL. With a double gameweek upcoming, and then an F.A. Cup quarterfinal match to play, Robertson should play the important PL fixtures, and the likeliness of a rotation is very less.
4. Gabriel Martinelli (Midfielder) – 5.3 Million
The Brazilian prospect of Arsenal has been a consideration for a differential choice for many weeks in the past. For GW 29 though, with games against Leicester City and Liverpool, Martinelli is again a differential alternative.
With a total of 7 goal contributions and an xG+xA of 0.45 per 90, he can be a cheaper differential alternative. Especially an alternative to his highly owned teammates, Saka or Ødegaard. Up until now he has bagged 69 FPL points and is owned by only 2.7% of fantasy managers.
Arenal’s recent form has taken them into the league’s top 4, and with a UCL spot to defend in the upcoming week, Martinelli might be one of their talismans. Also, he is not a completely out-of-form player, as he accumulated 7 points in the previous game against Watford. Further note that he has an impressive 2.67 shots per game and has provided 22 crosses in the box so far this season, in the very few games he has appeared in (17 appearances, 13 starts)
5. Anthony Gordon (Midfielder) – 4.5 Million
Everton did not have much to cheer for in the last few weeks, neither have much to look up to at the league table. But even in times of hardship, Anthony Gordon appears to emerge as the only silver lining as the young man is constantly raising eyebrows of football experts; even the rival fans.
The right-footed youngster has played 1326 minutes in the league so far this season scoring 3 goals and assisting twice with 2.2 npxG recorded. What is impressive is his immediate impact in the game with almost 36 offensive actions registered which led to a goal or a shot on goal. He averages 5.57 progressive carries per 90 minutes of action and 2.44 shots creating actions per match.
Everton plays a double gameweek 29 against Wolves and Newcastle both at home, with an added urge to keep up in the premier league battling relegation. These two games can possibly shape the future of the Everton Football club for the next season too, hence Frank Lampard and his men will be giving their all to win thereby justifying the 4.5 million priced midfielder in the FPL game with a TSB of mere 1.7%.
