Under the Radar – Gameweek 21

The weekly fixtures re-commence and as does my weekly article. With the transfer window wide open and the wildcard now active for many FPL users, it is very important to find those differential picks that will push you up the rankings.

So let’s get on with it!


Despite not getting the game time he so desired, French striker Bafetimbi Gomis will most certainly come back into contention over the coming weeks. With main man Wilfried Bony leaving for the African Cup of Nations – as well as the speculation over a possible move to the Etihad – Gomis will take up the head of the Swansea attack. Although he is most definitely unproven in the Premier League, his last game against QPR resulted in 8 goal attempts in total, the highest across the league for gameweek 20. In addition to this, Swans boss Gary Monk has reassured everyone that Gomis will NOT be leaving the club this year, especially if Bony is to depart in January. So with potential goals and guaranteed game time Gomis is certainly a potential third striker option. Granted, he is a massive risk but one that, if you’re brave enough to take, could definitely pay-off.

DANNY INGS, £5.6M, 2.0% TSB

Another good third striker option, who floats under the FPL radar, is Burnley forward Danny Ings. A good bet for the next few gameweeks, Ings has returned 10 points in his last 2 games and at £5.6 million, seems a real steal. The attacking potential is certainly there and Burnley have failed to score once in five games (taking into account that they played Southampton at home, Spurs away, Liverpool at home, Man City and Newcastle away). Burnley are looking very promising as of late and Ings may be a good short term option before you play that ever so crucial wildcard.

That concludes another edition of under the radar, enjoy and good luck!
