Twelfth Man Times FPL Picks: Top differentials for GW2

Fantasy Premier League(FPL): GameWeek 2 Differentials

Fantasy Premier League(FPL) Game Week 1 is done and dusted as we head into GW2 this Saturday. Game Week 2 will be one to watch as the big boys from Manchester will play their first game of the season. A lot of Fantasy managers have already brought in Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne in huge numbers.

Apart from the famous assets from these teams, we can include some differentials to get an early lead.  Likewise, in this article, we will look at some of the best differentials for GW2 who can bring good returns to your team.

So, here are TMT’s top five differentials to add in your team ahead of GW2 to stand out from other managers

1. Raheem Sterling (11.5m) –

Raheem Sterling- FPL Differential

Raheem Sterling can turn out to be one of the best differentials in this edition of FPL. Surprisingly, the Manchester City attacker has ownership of just 4.3% going into GW2. This is quite low for a player who scored 20 goals last season and 9 of those came in the post-lockdown period.

In addition to that, Raheem Sterling scored 2 goals when City gave a visit to Molineux Stadium last season. This makes Raheem Sterling out top differential for GW2 of Fantasy Premier League.

2. Marcus Rashford (9.5m) –

Rashford- FPL Differential

Marcus Rashford is another big name who can prove out to be an early-season differential. Rashford has current ownership of just 5.8% but gives a very good option for GW2. He has been reclassified as a midfielder in FPL, which means he will get more points for a goal with added clean sheet point.

Moreover, Rashford was the key to break down the tough Crystal Palace backline last season. He scored 1 and assisted one at Selhurst Park and will look to do the same in GW2.

3. Enda Stevens (5.5m) –

Sheffield United visit Villa Park in GW2 and look to get back to winning ways. Enda Stevens can bring some good return in GW2 due to his excellent quality on both sides of the field. The defender picked 4 assists last season and topped it with scoring 2 goals.

Moreover, Aston Villa failed to score against Sheffield United in Premier League last season.  We can expect the same outcome this weekend which boosts appeal for Enda Stevens.

4. Timothy Castagne (5.5m) –

Timothy Castagne - FPL Differential

Castagne is currently occupying the right-back position for Leicester City. The defender was seen in very attacking positions in GW1 against West Bromwich Albion. Castagne scored a header in the game while picking up clean sheet points and 2 bonus points.

Currently selected by only 3.5% of the managers around the world, Castagne can prove out to be a very good differential for GW2. Leicester City welcomes Burnley this weekend at King Power stadium having a great record against them.

5. Tariq Lamptey (4.5m) –

Lamptey plays as a right wing-back for Brighton & Hove Albion and they visit Newcastle United this weekend. At 4.5m, Lamptey can provide a budget option and a differential option for GW2. He has ownership of just 3.2% which can rise as the season progresses.
