For gameweek 6, we will use the combination of “Form”, “Team Selected By (TSB)”, and “Fixture Difficulty Rank (FDR)” to choose our differentials. Those stats will provide some players that have good recent performance (Form), owned by less than 7% managers (TSB), and have easy fixtures (FDR). FYI: Form is a player’s average score per game, calculated from all games played in his club in the last 30 days.
