FPL Gameweek 30 Differentials 2021/22: 5 Fantasy Players that can help boost your rank

It's easy to pick the big players, but who are some of the lesser know potential stars of the competition!

The 30th gameweek of the English Premier League is almost upon us and so is the Fantasy Premier League deadline. In this blank gameweek only a handful of teams play and hence there is a possibility of a low-scoring gameweek. Apart from the popular picks, there are quite a number of players, who have impressed over the weekend with points and underlying stats. The onset of fixtures along with their form can really turn them into good replacements for the underperforming assets of the fantasy team. All the managers are trying to stabilize their teams with suitable options before the price hikes. In this article, we compiled 5 differentials for FPL Gameweek 30, 2021/22 to boost your rankings which others may not even notice!

FPL Gameweek 30 Differentials 2021/22

1. Ben Davies (Defender) – 4.4 Million

Tottenham Spurs are in dicey form, safe to say, but have shown that they can pull off performances that are able to change the track of the season in the Premier League. In a relatively blank gameweek ahead in all meanings, picking up a differential from this current Tottenham side is quite a tough task.

The best man for this job is Ben Davies at the back of Tottenham’s defense. The backline of Spurs has some relatively commonly chosen FPL options like Sergio Reguilon (11.6 % ownership) and Matt Doherty (6.6 percent ownership) while Davies boasts just 1.8 percent. With Tottenham playing an out-of-form and injury-ridden West Ham in GW30, he might be a wise investment.

Jarrod Bowen is ruled out completely, whilst Michail Antonio is labeled as a risk. This could bump up the chances of a Spurs clean sheet. In the league so far, he assisted once and even kept a clean sheet at the Amex Stadium against Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. 

2. Daniel Amartey (Defender) – 3.9 Million

Daniel Amartey has played in 17 matches in the premier league so far for the Leicester City side and has accumulated a total of 39 points from 4 clean sheets. In the dry game week of gameweek 30, Leicester City faces the London side Brentford bees, at their home in the King Power stadium.

Daniel Amartey can well turn out to be a differential option being available at just 3.9 million with less than 3% of top 100k fantasy premier league managers having him in their teams. Leicester is well placed in the table at the twelfth spot and has won four of the last five games they have played considering only against Arsenal away at the Emirates. So the defensive track record of Leicester City supports the investment in Amartey and he is also a budget enabler.

Leicester City feature at home to Brentford in gameweek 30 and have a double gameweek 33 ahead to play for. There has been some improvement from the Foxes defensively over the last four gameweeks where they’ve conceded just four goals and kept two clean sheets with only Chelsea, Liverpool, and Aston Villa earning more.

3. Gabriel Martinelli (Midfielder) – 5.3 Million

The Brazilian Winger has played 19 matches for the North London side in the Premier League so far scoring 5 times and getting 3 assists out of an npxG of 4.3 and XA of 1.5 and additionally creating 0.62 chances per 90 mins. He averages 6.75 progressive passes received per 90 minutes of football in the league and 6.49 touches in the attacking penalty box each game.

Martinelli had a brilliant game against Liverpool in gameweek 29, appearing as a constant threat from the left-hand side only to see his shots go wide against Alisson. Arsenal is one of the few top sides having a fixture in gameweek 30 and if you are planning for a Free Hit with tripling up on the Gunners than Martinelli can prove to be an astute differential.

Arsenal plays Aston Villa at the Villa Park on 19th March and is appearing to be the likelier winners of the game, with Martinelli being owned by just 3.7% of FPL users. In this game, the Brazilian Winger can emerge to be the difference between the two sides and thus cement his place in the rundown of fantasy premier league differentials this gameweek. The Gunners face Crystal Palace in gameweek 31 followed by Brighton in gameweek 32 and then possible double gameweek 33 against Southampton and Chelsea.

4. Christian Eriksen (Midfielder) – 5.5 Million

The Danish playmaker made a recent return to the PL through his transfer in for Brentford. Having played only his second full 90-minute game in the past gameweek since his cardiac arrest, he collected 6 points in that game against Burnley with an assist.

Eriksen already boasts an xG+xA of 0.29 per 90, which is better than his 2nd season at Inter. He also has had 1.23 shots per 90 till now. Besides, he also has made 3.70 shot-creating actions per 90 minutes so far. Brentford next plays a struggling Leicester City, who have been very poor defensively off-late and especially weak in defending set-pieces. Leicester has conceded an average of 1.95 expected goals per game during this calendar year with only Norwich City faring worse.

Whereas, Brentford has been that good offensively recently. For a player of a caliber like Christian Eriksen, who also got a National team call-up next, the undermining price of only £5.5m sure looks tempting enough. Especially due to his potential as a differential with only 0.4% ownership.

5. Daniel Podence (Midfielder) – 5.5 Million

If you are looking for a cheeky punt and fun pick for your blank gameweek 30 then take a closer look at Wolves’ Daniel Podence. Podence is an immediate short-term option, having a meager 0.7 % ownership and with Wolves facing Leeds, the worst defense in the league at the moment.

The young Portuguese starlet boasts stats of 4.3 npxG+xA (non-penalty expected goals and assists) per 90 mins, along with creating 0.07 big chances per game. Podence has amassed 3.20 touches in the penalty box per 90 mins till now averaging 4.36 FPL points every match.

As stated earlier a home tie against Leeds is always a cracking fixture to jump on, with Wolves face Aston Villa, Newcastle, Burnley, and Brighton in the next five gameweeks. They are scheduled to have a blank in gameweek 30 if Manchester City progresses in the FA Cup against Southampton, which will be rescheduled later making it a double gameweek later with Man City. If you are not owning Martinelli or already have triple up on Arsenal and Spurs, take a chance on Podence this week for once!
