The Championship campaign continues which means the fantasy game does too! Because of this we provide the top picks in each position for GAFFR Gameweek 17 with the help of our expert GAFFR manager @TomP_FF.
Looking through the top picks for GAFFR Gameweek 17 can be extremely useful for other managers within the Championship Fantasy community. Knowing who the best players to pick are will also help managers make decisions around transfers, captaincy and even chips.
Top picks – Defenders – Kyle Walker-Peters (£7.1m)
Southampton come up against Huddersfield next whom sit 21st in the league. They have also failed to score in three of their last four matches. This means backing a Southampton defender like this man in the round ahead could be a wise pick. Kyle Walker-Peters has also managed to produce a goal and an assist in his last five league matches which shows he has attacking potential as well.
Cody Drameh (£5.9m)
Things haven’t exactly been going to plan for Birmingham this season. However, they have a massive opportunity this week as they face-off with the worst team in the league. Sheffield Wednesday aren’t just poor, they have also failed to find the net in a massive eight of their last 10 matches. One player who can benefit from that is Cody Drameh who has managed two assists already this campaign.
Differential – Brad Potts (£5.6m)
Our first differential of the week is this man. Preston have won both of their last two matches whilst their opposition Cardiff have failed to win any in the same period. This could signal a switch in form for both clubs. Potts can be very dangerous from his wing-back position and we can see that in the fact he raked in a goal and an assist in his last four league matches.
Midfielders – Crysencio Summerville (£8.7m)
Leeds could be one of the best teams to invest in this week,. They come up against Rotherham whom have shipped between 2-5 goals in three of their last four matches. Leeds are climbing up the table after securing six wins in their last seven and scoring plenty of goals along the way. One of the players spearheading their form is Summerville who is in fantastic form – scoring five goals and creating four assists in his last seven games.
Jack Clarke (£9.3m)
Sunderland seem to have found their rhythm again – picking up two wins in their last three games. They face Plymouth next up who have conceded a huge 27 goals this season. Eight of those goals have come in their last three matches. Clarke is of course the best option to take advantage of the poor Plymouth defence. He takes his sides penalties but he has also racked up nine goals already this season.
Differential – Koji Miyoshi (£6.1m)
Targeting Sheffield Wednesday could be a clever play this week. The promoted side are conceding plenty of goals – eight in their last four matches. Koji Miyoshi netted in his most recent match against Sunderland which could give him huge confidence going into the match.
Forwards – Georginio Rutter (£9.1m)
Leading the in-form Leeds attack going into the match against a poor Rotherham is Rutter. In his last 10 matches for his side he’s managed four assists and one goal. Leeds have a great opportunity to close the gap on the top two placed teams this week and Rutter looks likely to be involved with the goals.
Adam Armstrong (£10.2m)
Southampton are another side in top form – unbeaten in their last eight league matches, winning six in the same period but more importantly scoring plenty of goals. They face a poor Huddersfield defence next who have conceded four goals in two of their last four outings. Leading the Saints frontline is Armstrong. He seems to be finding his feet again recently after scoring two goals and creating two assists in his last four games.
Differential – Jerry Yates (£7.6m)
Swansea play at home this week as they come up against Hull. Hull have shown huge inconsistencies this season defensively. A good example of that is the fact they conceded 2-3 goals in four of their last seven matches. One player who could take advantage of that is Yates who is the focal point to the Swans attack.
