It’s good to be different, at least it is when you get it right in your fantasy football team. We line up some choices to find your fantasy football differential in gameweek 3:
Ashley Williams – £5.0 (7.5%)
Williams has only made a 10 minute appearance for new club Everton in the Premier League so far. That is surely set to change following his performances at the heart of the Swansea defence over the last few years. He started for Everton in a 5-3-2 formation that featured a strong team against Yeovil on Tuesday. Everton have conceded a goal in their last two games, a 1-1 draw against Spurs and a 2-1 win over West Brom. But, looking at the Premier League FDR, Saturday’s match against Stoke (2) is the toughest until Everton face Man City on 15 October.
Andros Townsend – £6.5 (5.7%)
It’s been a tough start to the season for Palace losing both of the games they have played. Perhaps their most concerning issue is the lack of goals, they are the only team in the top flight yet to score. Bournemouth are just below them at the bottom of table purely by conceding more than Alan Pardew’s men. This weekend sees the two teams meet with both looking to get their first points on the board. It may be a bit of a risk to add Townsend to your team this week but if Palace get a result against Bournemouth, you can expect them to make the most of their favourable fixtures through September.
Salomón Rondón – £6.5 (3.6%)
Álvaro Negredo has made a great start to the season and as a result 22.5% of managers have snapped him up. Rightly so for a modest £6.7 price tag. So instead, we are looking at Salomón Rondón for £6.5. Rondón got off the mark in GW1 by scoring against Crystal Palace in WBA’s 1-0 win. West Brom host Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns this Saturday and have a decent run of fixtures until 15 October where they host Spurs. After GW2 Rondón has the third highest ICT Index (21.1) for a forward behind Sergio Agüero (31.0) and Zlatan Ibrahimović (22.6).
Romelu Lukaku – £9.0 (6.3%)
Lukaku is the most expensive option on this list at £9.0 but he is looking like he could start the match against Stoke on Saturday. He has looked unsettled with the prospect of a move away from the club and has appeared to miss as many chances as he scores recently. But, he scored 18 goals last season and has averaged 15 goals over the last 4 seasons. His lowest goal scoring season was 2014/15 where he scored 10. When Romelu Lukaku starts to find the net watch the selected percentage rise.
