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!
Chris Wood (Burnley)
The big Kiwi striker is now back to full fitness, and ready to perform over the Christmas period. Two home fixtures in a row should bring goals for the former Leeds striker, starting with the game against Watford this weekend. Wood bagged a goal in GW14, and should be prime to add to his four goal tally. Wood currently features in our ‘Hot List‘.
Points Scored: 2
Wilfred Bony (Swansea City)
Wilfred Bony has played 90 minutes three games in a row, and managed to bag himself a goal against Stoke last time out. The Swans face West Brom at home this weekend, and Bony could take advantage of their leaky defence. Tammy Abraham is probably not available in your Draft League, and is struggling for confidence.
Points Scored: 9
Dwight Gayle (Newcastle Utd)
Another striker to look at for GW16 is Dwight Gayle. He’s struggled so far this season, but made the most of his start against Chelsea last weekend, bagging his second goal of the campaign. He should start again this time around, and is facing a Leicester side who have conceded during their last three away fixtures.
Points Scored: 12
Andros Townsend (Crystal Palace)
A home fixture against Bournemouth should bring goals for both sides. With the likes of Wilfred Zaha and Reuben Loftus-Cheek likely to be taken by fellow managers, we’re backing Andros Townsend to step up this weekend. He’s been performing well, and gained an assist in GW13. This weekend it’s worth taking a punt on Townsend!
Points Scored: 2
Andrew Surman (AFC Bournemouth)
As featured in our ‘Hot List‘, Andrew Surman has been providing consistent returns for Eddie Howe’s men this season. Bournemouth are up against Crystal Palace this weekend, so look for Surman to be the creative spark in the middle of the park. The Englishman is likely to provide the assists for Wilson or King.

If this sounds like too much effort, we would highly recommend using an online platform from either the guys at Draft Fantasy or Fantrax.
