GW24 FPL #JackInTheBox

There are slim pickin's this week at the bottom of the table.  Although Hull, Stoke, West Brom and Fulham all have home fixtures, they will be hosting Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Southampton respectively.  Crystal Palace will be visiting Arsenal so I'll be leaving that fixture alone as well.  That leaves Cardiff, (who host Norwich), Sunderland (who are away at Newcastle), and West Ham (who host Swansea).

FPL GW24 #JackInTheBox: Andy Carroll
 
I have yet to see Swansea impress me with their defence in the games I've watched them play this year, so I'm looking to the bearded wonder to break them down when the Swans come visiting.  With an ownership level of only 0.3%, Carroll provides great differential potential not only for this week but as a viable option going forward.  With differentials at a premium at this point of the season, I see Carroll as someone that people will be looking at closely as they try to gain ground on their mini-league leaders.  If he bags one or two in the coming weeks, we all may have another mini bandwagon on our hands.
 
In the video below, Alan Pardew explains why he believes Andy Carroll will save the Hammers from relegation this year.  Enjoy....
 

 
Good luck in Gameweek 24 everyone....and Happy Deadline Day!!
 
Cheers,
