There’s been quite a bit of talk recently about the value of differentials in the comments section. As a result I thought it would be useful to outline some that I’ve spotted, having looked into this topic in a bit more detail. Hopefully this will spark some interesting debate in the comments section. I’m personally not a huge fan of the differential unless I feel that the chosen player will outscore some of the more popular choices. However I have been known to bring in the odd curve ball when it makes sense from a fixtures and form point of view.
Arrizabalaga (Kepa) – 7.8% ownership / 88 points. For me probably one of the best current differentials. Low ownership despite being a high point scorer. Will hopefully feature in Chelsea’s upcoming Europa League games.
There are some great defensive options when it comes to players who are below around 15% ownership, they include:
Doherty – 11.2% ownership / 95 points
Azpilicueta – 11.3% ownership / 113 points
Wan-Bissaka – 3.2% ownership / 87 points
David Luiz – 8% ownership / 109 points
Alderweireld – 5.4% ownership / 87 points
Rudiger – 6.6% ownership / 90 points
Pereira – 2.2% ownership / 97 points
Gomez – 3.3% ownership / 66 points (when fit again)
D. Silva – 8% ownership / 116 points
Eriksen – 7.9% ownership / 99 points
B. Silva – 11.3% ownership / 110 points
Mahrez – 10.8% ownership / 109 points
Anderson – 5.7% ownership / 108 points
Pedro – 4.6% ownership / 91 points
Willian – 11.2% ownership / 111 points
Fraser – 6.1% ownership / 106 points
Jesus – 14.4% ownership / 129 points
Lacazette – 10.9% ownership / 117 points
Wilson – 8.2% ownership / 109 points
Jimenez – 2.6% ownership / 94 points
There aren’t too many on this list that would be of interest to me at the moment. Obviously I already have Kepa and plan to keep him. Lacazette might be one to look at in February with Arsenal having two Europa League games in quick succession. Joe Gomez could also be a cheap option when he returns from injury.
