GW29 Differentials: Duffy to tame Terriers

The Scout says Brighton defender has big all-round potential for FPL points at home to Huddersfield

When it comes to scoring goals, Shane Duffy (£4.7m) has been the most reliable defender in Fantasy Premier League this season.

The Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back has found the net on five occasions, more than any other defender.

Duffy has also recorded two assists and five clean sheets as the Seagulls prepare to entertain Huddersfield Town.

This is why he is one of four Gameweek 29 Differentials selected by The Scout ahead of the Saturday, 2 March 11:30 GMT deadline.

Shane Duffy (BHA) £4.7m

Brighton's 5.7 per cent owned centre-back has been one of the standout defenders for attacking potential in FPL this season.

Duffy has had 25 shots inside the penalty area, second only to the 30 of Matt Doherty (£5.5m).

He also offers a strong chance of a clean sheet against Huddersfield Town, who have scored only three goals in their last nine matches.

Manuel Lanzini (WHU) £6.4m

The West Ham United playmaker has stepped up his recovery from injury ahead of the home match with Newcastle United.

Lanzini has featured as a second-half substitute in each of the Hammers' last two matches and is pushing for his first start of 2018/19.

The 0.1 per cent of managers who own him will look to Lanzini to return to the form of last season, when he scored or assisted 40 per cent of West Ham's goals when selected.

Divock Origi (LIV) £5.0m

The Liverpool striker is poised to make back-to-back starts for the first time this season, to the delight of the 0.1 per cent of owners who have the Belgian in their squads.

Origi replaced the injured Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) against Watford in midweek and got on the scoresheet in a 5-0 victory.

This suggests he can retain his starting role at Everton on Sunday.

Origi's previous appearance in the Merseyside derby was a successful one, scoring the winner in Gameweek 14.

Pedro (CHE) £6.3m

The Chelsea winger fired his eighth goal of the season in their 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.

Pedro heads to neighbours Fulham, whose 63 goals conceded are more than any other side, giving confidence to the 3.2 per cent of managers who own him.

The Spaniard has taken advantage of Fulham's frailties this season, scoring and producing 11 points against them in Gameweek 14.
