FPL DGW27 Transfer Tips: Who Are the Best Picks?

FPL GW27 is another double gameweek, with Brentford, Brighton, Crystal Palace, and Southampton playing twice.

However, the only two teams to target this week are Brentford and Brighton, who are both pushing for European football next season, sitting in 9th and 8th respectively.

As for Palace and Southampton, their assets aren’t exactly priorities since they have tough fixtures. The Eagles face Man City (H) and Brighton (a), whilst 19th-place Saints face Man Utd (a) and Brentford (H).

So without further ado, here are the best picks for DGW27.

Ivan Toney

  • Price: £7.7m
  • Picked by: 34%
  • Fixtures: Everton (a) + Southampton (a), Leicester (H), Brighton (a) + Man United (a)

Ivan Toney scored yet again this season on Monday Night Football against Fulham to make it 15 goals this campaign.

His xG is the second-highest in the league (16.5), taking 62 shots overall (9th most), including 24 on target (8th most).

A key factor in why his xG is so high is penalties. Toney has taken and scored 5 this term, the most scored by any player.

In the double gameweek Brentford face trips to Everton and Southampton, both struggling in the relegation zone.

Brentford don’t have a blank gameweek in GW28 either, so their assets will be popular, but with an impending ban for Toney, you must be able to sell at the first opportunity.

Kauro Mitoma

  • Price: £5.5m
  • Picked by: 18%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (a) + Crystal Palace (H), BLANK, Brentford (H) + Bournemouth (a)

Mitoma hauled over the weekend, scoring 13 points thanks to a goal and assist against West Ham. He now has 0.5 non-penalty goals per 90 (6).

60% of the Japanese winger’s shots have been on target this term (5th most), scoring 30% of all shots (third most).

He has four assists too, producing 0.7 goal-creating actions per 90 (9th most).

In DGW27 Brighton play Leeds and Palace, who are both in the bottom 5 of the form table. Leeds have four points in their last 5 whilst Palace only have three.

The downside to all Brighton assets is that they have a blank gameweek in GW28, so unless you’re planning to Free Hit in GW28 you should prioritise fielding a full 11 that week.

Alexis Mac Allister

  • Price: £5.4m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (a) + Crystal Palace (H), BLANK, Brentford (H) + Bournemouth (a)

Mac Allister was another Brighton asset to haul, scoring 14 points with a goal and assist, collecting all three bonus points.

The World Cup winner now has 6 goals and an assist this campaign, and with a double gameweek next, he’s a great differential.

He’s on penalties, scoring four this season (second most), resulting in the highest xG in the team (6.7).

Additionally, he is also taking 2.1 shots per 90.

It’s a tough decision choosing between Brighton assets, but being on penalties is a huge benefit to Mac Allister.

Pervis Estupinan

  • Price: £4.8m
  • Picked by: 9%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (a) + Crystal Palace (H), BLANK, Brentford (H) + Bournemouth (a)

Estupinan, whilst a defender, has been contributing a lot to Brighton’s attack.

The Ecuadorian left-back has 5 assists, including three in his last 5 gameweeks.

In his last 6, he’s scored 36 points, including three assists and four clean sheets.

He has the third most key passes (25) and passes into the box in the Brighton team (26), as well as the second most crosses into the box (10).

As a team, Brighton are defensively solid as well, resulting in the fourth-lowest xGA in the league (26.8).

A great pick, especially with Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) dropping out of the starting 11.

David Raya

  • Price: £4.8m
  • Picked by: 14%
  • Fixtures: Everton (a) + Southampton (a), Leicester (H), Brighton (a) + Man United (a)

Brentford have the 5th lowest xGA in the league (29), with Raya playing a huge part.

The ‘keeper has kept 8 clean sheets (6th most), 33% of all games, and has made the most saves (103), so if their clean sheet is wiped out it’s likely he’ll compensate with save points.

The Bees face both Everton and Southampton away in DGW27, both of whom are the third-lowest scorers at home (11 goals).

With another double in DGW29 there aren’t many better goalkeeper options than this man.
