Chris Wilder’s backline started 2019/20 slowly, conceding five goals in the first four Gameweeks.
Since then, however, they have upped their defensive displays, conceding just three goals in the last seven Gameweeks.
A defender in FPL, John Lundstram (£4.8m) is their star performer in the game thanks to his role in midfield.
His two goals against the Clarets earned him 21 points, the highest individual haul of 2019/20.
Lundstram now boasts 68 points this season, 14 more than any other defender.
Following those matches, Sheffield United’s schedule gives Lundstram the chance to bring in further big hauls.
|14||WOL (A)||3||17||AVL (H)||2|
|15||NEW (H)||2||18||BHA (A)||2|
|16||NOR (A)||2||19||WAT (H)||2|
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of the Blades' six matches over Gameweeks 14 to 19 score just two.
Their wing-back system gives managers a number of options to bring in alongside Lundstram during that run.
Sheffield United's entire back five sit among the top 16 defenders for points.
Dean Henderson (£4.7m), meanwhile, is the joint top-scoring goalkeeper in the game on 48 points.
While Lundstram remains the standout pick, doubling up with another member of Wilder's rearguard looks a tempting tactic.
