Best Differential Picks for FPL GW27

With yet another double gameweek on the horizon, we look at some of the differential players who could score you big points.

Brentford and Brighton both have a double gameweek.

If you’re aiming to find the best differentials to climb up your mini-leagues, look no further. All of the players below are less than 5% owned.

Alexis Mac Allister

  • Fixture: Leeds (a) & Crystal Palace (H)
  • Price: £5.4m
  • Picked by: 4.1%

Mac Allister was one of the weekend’s standouts, finishing on a massive 14-point haul against the Hammers. This included a goal, an assist, and maximum bonus points.

In addition, he created the equal most chances (3), and recorded the highest xG of anyone on the field, with an xG of 1.12. Managers who had him were the gameweek winners in picking the correct Seagulls midfielder.

At 4% ownership, he is still classified as a major differential. However, his percentage is only going to grow, with Brighton’s coming double gameweek.

Joel Veltman

  • Fixture: Leeds (a) & Crystal Palace (H)
  • Price: £4.6m
  • Picked by: 3%

Another Seagull who may be ripe for the picking is the Dutch defender. Like Mac Allister, the 31-year-old also produced a double-digit haul on Saturday.

Alongside his second-half goal, he too came away with a bonus point. He actually came off the bench but before that, he had four consecutive starts.

He replaced the injured Tariq Lamptey 16 minutes into the game. Three of Brighton’s next four fixtures are rated as a 2 on the FDR. They also have a favourable double gameweek 29.

Being at just a mere 3% ownership, he could prove a game-changer, should you intend to make up ground in your mini-leagues.

Mathias Jensen

  • Fixture: Everton (a) & Southampton (a)
  • Price: £4.8m
  • Picked by: 2%

As well as the Seagulls, there are also the Bees to consider. One of the shining gems in recent times has been Jensen the midfield maestro.

The Danish midfielder has been going through a purple patch recently in front of goal.

Jensen has scored three goals in his last six league games. During that time, he’s accomplished two double digit-hauls and five bonus points.

In addition, he is definitely assured of his starts, having started every league game this season. Heading into this weekend, he has a 90% chance of starting.

Furthermore, he too has the most assists of any player from Thomas Frank’s side, with four.

With his affordable price, the low ownership plus his recent form, Mathias could be the diamond for your FPL team.

Ethan Pinnock

  • Fixture: Everton (a) & Southampton (a)
  • Price: 4.4
  • Picked by: 0.8%

Another Bee who solidifies their defensive line is the mighty Pinnock. He actually has a lower ownership than both Ben Mee and Rico Henry.

Owners who rolled the dice on the Jamaican reaped major rewards on Monday night.

The 29-year-old scored his opening goal of the season. It was too, Brentford’s opener for the game against their West London rivals.

He has consolidated a respectable fantasy scoring run since after the World Cup. Along with the goal, he produced four clean sheets within that period.

If you fancy players who are owned by 1% of the game or less, Pinnock may be the ultimate point of difference.

Furthermore, Brentford has five games to play in their next three game weeks.
