Best Bournemouth players to sign on FPL in 2018/19 – The Complete Members’ Analysis

Josh King, Charlie Daniels, Junior Stanislas, Nathan Ake: Bournemouth players have mostly been good to Fantasy managers since the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2015, offering decent returns for minimal investment.

Last season’s offerings were something of a disappointment from a Fantasy perspective, however, with no Bournemouth player reaching double figures for goals, assists or clean sheets.

King scored half as many goals (eight) as he managed in 2016/17, while Jordan Ibe’s total of six assists was the best any Cherries player could muster.

The Bournemouth defence was particularly porous, meanwhile, keeping only six clean sheets (a league-low shared with relegated Stoke City) in their 38 league matches.

Part of Bournemouth’s appeal from a Fantasy standpoint is that by now we mostly know what to expect from the south coast side. Eddie Howe is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, following Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal, having been on the books at the Vitality Stadium for well over five years. Many of Bournemouth’s players have also been with the club for an extended period: King, Daniels, Stanislas, Ryan Fraser, Adam Smith, Simon Francis, Steve Cook and Callum Wilson, among others, have featured in all three seasons that the Cherries have spent in the top flight.

While Howe’s formation is far from settled, having flip-flopped between a conventional back four and a three-man defence last season, the Cherries’ mantra remains comfortingly consistent: attack and attack some more.

    The hardest according to me is which goalkeepers to go with. Two playing ones or just one to free up son cash.

    What duo have you gone for?

    1. Atwood
      • 13 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      If not playing BB I'd go with single

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 5 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Agree

    2. FER FUSCH AKE
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      MUSLERA AND SOMMER.

      I'll have to shots at trying to get the keeper right.

    3. The_Adam
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Muslera and Pickford for me. But considered plenty of other options. Olsen was close to being selected.

    4. kinghenry14
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      muslera 4.0

    5. MMN
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      No clue atm, leaning towards two playing keepers perhaps Courtois and Sommer/Olsen

    6. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I'm going Musl and Court

    7. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Definitely two playing, without question

  2. Atwood
    • 13 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    When do we reckon we'll hear Fra/Arg lineups? Hour before KO?

    1. Emiliano Sala
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      1.5 h before

  3. SP Polymorphism
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Why is the consensus Boyata will not play?

    3 90 min games who is looking to take his place?

    1. The_Adam
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Vincent Kompany I assume.

    2. Atwood
      • 13 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      The three consecutive starts are the exact reason people think he's a doubt.

      Nobody actually knows anything for sure, but most just consider it too risky really.

    3. DJDave1979
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Kompany coming on for ten minutes to check he's fit has to be a red flag for Boyata owners. Playing 90 v England is more a neg than a positive in terms of being in the first XI

  4. Zlat-man
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Best mid for 5.5?

    1. The_Adam
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Claesson for me.

      Others will say Quintero.

    2. mcrayeps
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Template?

  5. Atwood
    • 13 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Thoughts on this BB team? Wildcard intact.
    Will be waiting for Pavard news of course.

    Muslera - Olsen
    Carvajal - Aldeweireld - Pavard - Strinic - Granqvist
    Isco - Coutinho - Quintero - Claesson - Modric
    Lukaku - Kane - Costa

    1. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years

      So many differentials from the template

  6. Beautiful Game
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Any news on the probable lineups in the France-Argentina match?

    1. InvertedWinger
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      You'll see then atleast 60 mins before kick off though so no point speculating but they're expected to be..

      1. InvertedWinger
        • 8 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Lloris Pavard umtiti Varane Hernandez Ngolo Pogba Mbappe Griezmann Matuidi Giroud

        Argentina only change from last game may be Pavon in for Higuain

    Muslera, Subasic
    Guerreiro, Carvajal, Akanji, Miranda, Meunier

    Ronaldo, Mandzukic, Lukaku

    A) stay like this

    B) Out - Miranda, Meunier, Sanchez, Mandzukic

  13. The Yorkshire Pirlo
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Keep tinkering too much now.

    Is a Croatian midfielder needed?

    Courtois, Subasic
    Meunier, Trippier, Godin, Miranda, Carvajal
    Coutinho, Isco, Lingard, Claesson, 4.4
    Suarez, Lukaku, Hazard

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Fine, but 4.4 mid not good

  14. FPLAdmiral
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Is Ronaldo worth 3m more than Costa (and the downgrades elsewhere in your team to accommodate)?

    I’d love Ronaldo, Kane, Lukaku but so hard without making huge sacrifices!

    1. Nespinha
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Its a big bet, but could pay off.

      Costa was also going to blast agaisnt iran and morrocco and we didnt see that.

      I wouldnt have so much invested in forwards or the other hand

    2. Stats Don\'t Lie
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      No imo

    3. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I wouldn't be surprised if France keep a cleanie.

  15. Thunder Warrior
    • 9 Years

      B

  17. InvertedWinger
    • 8 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    I'm not sold on the Modric love.
    It's got to be mainly penalty and VAR?
    His offensive output is otherwise uninspiring for that price tag.

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Think penalties swing it for most.
      I'm going without

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      he's never been a goalscorer but he's on pens which is the biggest factor

    1. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      At least this WC is some kind of distraction until the real game starts.

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      well there isn't much to talk about for fpl right now. WC is the main focus

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Could be soon Bemba the game is currently updating.
        Could it be an early launch?

        1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
          • 14 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          we are not far away, usually it launches first 2 week of July.

          I think we maybe on for a later start this year, maybe the week after the final is my guess

        2. UshFPL
          • 7 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          With the marketing they've been doing in recent years to increase the game's popularity I can't see them launching during the WC when it will get less attention

    3. mcrayeps
      • 7 Years

  29. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos

    Got Perisic, Subasic, Silva and Ramos. Thinking between Isco and Modric, opinions? Maybe too much Croatia vs Denmark:/

  30. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 14 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    bench boost is a hindrance rather than a benefit in this game. If one of the player blanks it's more annoying when playing the bb as normally you can just sub them out

    Also, I am guessing any player you want to captain you have to start in your 11?

    1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 10 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Yes, why would that be difficult? Re:captain on field

    2. diesel001
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Bench boost is a limited benefit chip IMO. I'll be happy with 6pts from it.
