Draft Fantasy Football is all about picking a diamond from the rough, a hidden gem that no one else has considered, or a Premier League player hitting a good run of form. This weekly article is here to help you find your golden ticket to a big score, recommending five attacking differentials who could score big in the upcoming gameweek.
Your third striker just got injured? Your fifth midfielder stuck in rotation hell? We’ll help you out with some suggestions to give your team a little boost!
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Crystal Palace)
Loftus-Cheek has been on impressive form so far this season, despite some niggling injury worries. The young Englishman has now played the full 90 minutes the last three games, earning two assists along the way. A home fixture against Stoke City this weekend will provide chances for Palace in the final third, and Loftus-Cheek will be ready to take advantage of this. Palace have been upping their goal-scoring threat in recent weeks, and Loftus-Cheek will be at the centre of their attacking play.

Ramadan Sobhi (Stoke City)
Having started the last three games, GW13 could be the week that Sobhi gains attacking returns. The young Egyptian has seemingly ousted Jese Rodriguez from the starting eleven, and this weekend’s fixture at Selhurst Park will offer plenty of opportunities. Stoke have been on decent scoring form, and now could be the time for Sobhi to get in on the act.
Points Scored: 2
Will Hughes (Watford)
Hughes has had to bide his time after signing from Derby over the summer, but took full advantage of his second Premier League start during GW12. A goal and an assist has put the Englishman on the radars of Draft Fantasy Football Managers, and a fixture away to a Newcastle side missing their inspirational captain could provide further returns. Rotation will be a big factor over the coming weeks, but a one week punt on Hughes is worth a gamble!
Points Scored: 8
Manuel Lanzini (West Ham United)
Manuel Lanzini may be Moyes’ only hope of keeping West Ham up, and subsequently saving his career. The Argentinean playmaker has been on good form in recent weeks, despite poor results for The Hammers. The Friday night fixture at home to Leicester will provide Lanzini with plenty of opportunities to gain attacking returns. West Hams fixtures do take a turn for the worse over the coming weeks, so picking up Lanzini could be a short term Draft Fantasy Football option.
Points Scored: 7
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)
With Oumar Niasse suffering a two game suspension for diving, Calvert-Lewin looks set to lead the line against a shocking Southampton side this weekend. Expect the Englishman to take full advantage of Everton’s increased output over the last few games. Southampton have been on very poor form recently, so a clean sheet doesn’t look likely. Calvert-Lewin should start GW14 too due to The Toffees limited options up front.
Points Scored: 5
