The best Brighton players for FPL Double Gameweek 29

Brighton play twice in Double Gameweek 29 and have some of FPL’s most-wanted assets. Let’s examine which of these are worth owning.

Just like before Double Gameweek 27’s deadline, the Seagulls are in high demand for Brentford (H) and Bournemouth (a). Beyond that, if Chelsea (a) and Blank Gameweek 32 can be navigated, they have a superb fixture run to finish this season – one that will have three further doubles.

It’s their form as well as the fixtures. Over two goals per game since Gameweek 17’s restart, with 4-1, 3-0 and 4-0 wins over Everton, Liverpool and West Ham making them serious contenders for the fourth Champions League spot.

Furthermore, their FPL players are cheap. Here are the leading candidates.

Best players for Double Gameweek 29

Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m)

The best place to start is their trio of ‘M’ midfielders, all priced between £5.1m and £5.5m. They are productive, brilliant to watch, have promising fixtures yet with prices that enable a strong squad elsewhere. But settling on the right one – or two – of them is tough.

Mitoma has been a revelation since his first start in Gameweek 14, producing six goals and five assists in the subsequent 13 appearances.

Although he sits below March and Mac Allister for goal attempts, shots on target and expected goal involvement (xGI) in this time, he is ahead for penalty area touches and goal conversion rate.

He scored the only goal in February’s reverse meeting with Bournemouth and will have an extremely high ownership rate, also being a leading captaincy contender.

Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m)

Not only does Mac Allister have a better rate of goal attempts and expected goals (xG) since Gameweek 14, he’s been in a more advanced role over the last few matches. The move has led to underlying stats that rank among the league’s very best, according to Fantasy Football Scout’s Members Area.

Throw in his penalty duties and there could be a decent shout to make him your differential captain instead.

Solly March (£5.1m)

Bad luck has affected March owners so far. He blanked in Gameweek 26 despite a more threatening performance than the double-digit Mitoma and Mac Allister hauls. Then, he was denied the credit for scoring against Leeds as it was originally given as an own goal.

Goalless for over two years until the festive resumption, he’s since become a huge favourite of Roberto De Zerbi and has gone on to bag six league goals, including last time out against Crystal Palace.

Additionally, March is ahead of the other two for big chances created (9), shots inside the box (21) and xGI (6.53) from Gameweek 14 onwards.

Pervis Estupinan (£4.8m)

At the back, Brighton have conceded one goal in five home outings and attacking left-back Pervis Estupinan has a trio of recent away assists to go alongside them. Together, it means he’s only once scored under six points over the last eight fixtures.

He’s seen as the best route into defence ahead of Lewis Dunk (£4.7m), although it must be pointed out that no defender has overachieved more in attack post-World Cup. Three returns versus 1.11 xGI.

Jason Steele (£3.9m)

Finally, in goal, De Zerbi threw a curveball by dropping goalkeeper Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) for backup Steele. Later quotes from the head coach suggest it’s the latter’s place to lose and – by keeping two clean sheets from the last three league games – Steele is rising to the challenge.

Unlike Sanchez, he’s a big saving on Estupinan and is almost the cheapest player in all positions. This is ideal for Bench Boost 29, as owners will gain two strong fixtures, without leaving any excess budget on the sidelines afterwards.
