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!
Roberto Pereyra (Watford)
After struggling with injuries so far this season, Pereyra has struggled to get back into the starting eleven due to the form of Will Hughes in recent weeks. Hughes picked up an injury of his own in GW14, so now is the time for the Argentinean international to make his mark once again. A fixture against Spurs won’t be easy, but Pereyra has the quality to gain attacking returns against any side.
Points Scored: 2
Jermain Defoe (AFC Bournemouth)
Defoe returned to the first team on Wednesday night, coming off the bench to gain an assist. The veteran striker may have to bide his time, and make the most of substitutes appearances, but if he’s a free agent, he’s well worth a punt. With Callum Wilson only just returning from a serious injury, and a huge amount of games coming up, Defoe will surely get his chance to impress.
Points Scored: 1
Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke City)
A home fixture against a struggling Swansea City side brings Diouf back into our thinking. He’s been shifted back out to right wing-back, but he still gets into dangerous positions, and could take advantage of The Swans’ poor recent form. If a fellow Draft Fantasy Football manager has given up on him in recent weeks, snap him up for GW15!
Points Scored: 7
Marc Albrighton (Leicester City)
Albrighton has gained attacking returns in his last two appearances, so he may be worth a punt with Leicester playing Burnley at home this weekend. Albrighton has the quality, but sometimes struggles for consistency. Could the Christmas period be his time to shine? Worth a punt!
Points Scored: 3
Oumar Niasse (Everton)
It’s hard to predict Big Sam’s starting eleven for GW15, but Niasse is worth a shot if a fellow Draft Fantasy Football manager has dumped him during his ban. Calvert-Lewin led the line in Niasse’s absence, so he could be due a rest. Everton face a struggling Huddersfield side, and confidence is surely sky high after the big midweek win.
