The Numbers Game – Attacking Full-Backs

With clean sheets so scarce again this season, Fantasy managers have been largely forced to look to their defenders for attacking returns. With budget options also proving popular acquisitions, there is a drive to identify those defenders who can perhaps offer supplementary points to add to those rare occasions when they can keep their opponents at bay.

Thankfully, the role of the modern-day full-back in the Premier League also appears to have changed, with the emphasis now on joining the attack and helping provide a stream of opportunities for others.

In this latest article for our members, we cast an eye over those full-backs who have recently impressed in this area, assessing those most likely to deliver those occasional assists that can make all the difference to our Gameweek totals.

              Want to get Lambert out, have 1 FT and 4.4 in the bank.

              Obvious choice is Defoe leaving me with 2.0m, but really want Bale when he's back next week...

              So Long instead??

                            Hughes at 4.5 is worthy considering withh Fulhams next 6.

                                              Not absolutely nailed on but if you look at Clichy's history, up to the point of his injury he started 8 of 9 games. I'd take that for 5.6 (and will)

                                                  But Kolarov is a risk and Maicon/Zabaleta can play RB.

                                                          Zabaleta just struck me as an idea....

                                                        Yeah, but they didn't for the 9 games he was fit. And when fit he came straight back in the team. He seems to have Mankini's favour.

                                                          neither? seems everything is running thru Roon / RvP and neither wing is getting consistent chances for attack pts.

I need Monsieur Gorkss off of my squad (for a week at the very least, I am satisfied with the rest of my squad so I can afford a punt and then switch to another defender).

I prefer a more attacking option for that price. Puncheon especially. Having said that he is on pens and I always have a soft sport for Sidwell after his successful loan spell at Brighton a few years back.

After all the heat Mancini had to deal with, I'm pretty sure he'll start Tevez during Christmas season, especially since he can't afford any slip ups. Plus, ManCity have favourable fixtures coming up. I wouldn't get Silva since you already have Tevez. I wouldn't recommend Begovic since he's got some pretty tough fixtures coming his way but I'd definitely recommend changing Foster, maybe to Szczesny since he's got pretty decent fixtures coming up and is moderately priced.

I have no bench at all to come on in his place and also have Sterling in the starting lineup who may not play 🙁
