Gameweek 6 Differentials – Fantasy Football Tips

Before we know it we are already looking down the barrel of gameweek 6 and with many fantasy managers struggling for points, many will be looking for a differential that could score big and enable a rapid rise in the ranks. This article will analyse 5 players all under 5% TSB (teams selected by) that could score big in gameweek 6.

Nicolas Otamendi (£5.4m) – Manchester City – 2.3% TSB

With half of Manchester City’s defence our injured there is the argument that this could see clean sheet potential reduce and we did see City concede 3 against Norwich in gameweek 5. That said City did travel to play Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League mid-week, keeping a clean sheet in a 0-3 victory. Priced at a bargain reasonable £5.4m, Otamendi sees his team host Watford this week who are sitting rock bottom of the Premier League. Surely they will get back to winning ways?

In addition to this, Otamendi has had 6 shots this campaign, the joint high test out of all City’s defence, with Zinchenko also having 6. This shows that the central defender not only has defensive point potential, but also has the ability to get involved going forward.

Che Adams (£5.8m) – Southampton – 0.6% TSB

Adams joined the Saints over the summer and although he has looked promising, he is yet to register a goal or an assist. Adams has however had the most shots out of all Southampton players, with 11 and has missed 5 big chances, so surely it is a matter of time before the new signing finds the back of the net? Southampton host Bournemouth this gameweek who have conceded 9 goals this season, whilst the last time they met in the Premier League the fixture saw 6 goals in a 3-3 thriller. Same again?

Emiliano Buendia (£6.0m) – Norwich – 1.3% TSB

Norwich are in some form, with many fantasy managers picking either Cantwell or Pukki, one player that has gone under the radar is £6.0m midfielder Buendia who has had quite the start this season. Buendia has managed to create 4 goals this season, two of which were against Manchester City, with only De Bruyne having more (5). In addition, Buendia has had 5 shots on goal, the same amount as Cantwell who has scored twice, so if he can improve his finishing, he could be a great pick as the Canaries travel to Burnley.

Sead Kolasinac (£5.4m) – Arsenal – 0.9% TSB

Arsenal host Aston Villa this weekend, a fixture in which many Gunners will be looking for a convincing victory after their 2-2 draw with Watford. One player who picked up an assist during that fixture was Kolasinac who is owned by just 0.9% of fantasy managers. The Arsenal defender played 81 minutes midweek as he was substituted for Maitland-Niles whilst Arsenal were winning 0-1.

Villa have only scored 4 goals this season, a record only Crystal Palace can beat with 3, which does make good reading for those who are banking on an Arsenal clean sheet. What also makes Kolasinac a good pick is his upcoming fixtures, with Arsenal only playing one top 6 team in the next 11 fixtures.

Joelinton (£5.9m) – Newcastle – 1.7% TSB

Newcastle host Brighton this weekend, in a fixture which could be a crucial fixture to win as they currently sit in the relegation zone with just 4 points. Brighton have conceded 8 goals in the last 4 games and Newcastle will want this trend to continue and they will look towards their record summer signing to provide a source of goals. So far this season Joelinton has scored just one goal, having had 10 shots and missed 1 big chance. Hosting Brighton this week, could Joelinton and Newcastle put on a show for their fans?
