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.

    Pick one? Thanks.

    A - Costa
    B - Mbappe
    C - Giroud

    French pick gives me a half decent captain pick for today rather than Bentancur.

    1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
      • 5 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Ive gone Mbappe

    2. dunas_dog

      Similar dilemma to me. See below. I am leaning towards Costa but could be persuaded to switch to Mbappe as have Isco

      1. Krafty Werks
        • 9 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Have just decided on Mbappe as gives me a half decent captain for today and also Costa kinda went missing in last match vs Morocco...i'll give Mbappe a whirl i think!!

  2. Paramaribo
    • 9 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Alisson, 3.9
    Ramos, Granqvist, Meunier, Carvajal, Pavard
    Isco, Coutinho, Modric, Quintero, C.Sanchez
    Lukaku, Kane, Griezmann

    Do you like it? I am considering Courtois instead of Alisson, or Miranda instead of Carvajal but not both as I want to have a Brazilian defensive cover up.

  3. Murder On Zidanesfloor
    • 5 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Played BB, need help with Gks

    A) Courtois + Sommer
    B) Muslera + Subasic

    I don’t have defenders from any of these teams

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

      A

  4. Chandler Bing
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Trippier + Courtois or Muslera + Meunier?

  5. SoShy
    • 8 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Thoughts on Fanger ahead of Danilo?

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

      Fagner**

      1. CloudSky
        • 7 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        Homophobe.

    2. Legomané
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Nobody knows. I'm going Thiago

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

      Danilo was first choice so normally you'd expect him to return. Fagner played under Tite in Brazilian club football for a few years and played decent in the last game. I'd steer clear of both - go Miranda instead

  6. Aubaaaaa
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Which combi?
    A. Ronaldo, C.Sanchez
    B. Mbappe, Lingard

    1. satsumo
      • 11 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      B for me

  7. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Now that we know France and Argentina teams whic 3rd striker to go with Lukaku and Kane?

    A Mbappe ( no other French or Argentine player). Godin my captain for now. Can not afford Griezmann.
    B Costa ( got Isco and Carvajal)

  8. satsumo
    • 11 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    A) Alderweireld, Pavard, Armani, Subasic
    B) Strinic, Godin, Courtois, 4m fodder

  9. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    May change Hazard Miranda to Costa TSilva?
    Lovren better than Strinic for potential attacking return?

    Courtois - Mvogo
    Godin - Miranda - Trip - Carvajal - Strinic
    Isco - Modric - Coutinho - Quintero - CSanchez
    Kaku - Hazard - Kane

    1. ForEvra Young
      • 9 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Mbappe?

  10. Gee_mm
    • 5 Years

    MBAPPE OR GRIEZ?

    1. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Griezman for pens and free-kicks

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

    We will know the Uruguay/Portugal vs France/Argentina lineups before the quarter final deadline. Makes some of the picks like Pavard etc less riskier if we know they will be playing or not

    4. We Will Klopp you
      • 7 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Yep, alternative was Quintero who is likely to go out anyway, so why not?

  22. EmreCan Hustle
    • 11 Years

      Ballsy. Could flop massively, but at least you get more chances.

      1. Meimei
        • 7 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        I took Classeon out for him and downgrade T. Silva for Mirande and Godin to Lovren. Only player playing today.

    Heard some nightmare stories about people not activating or confirming Bench Boost.

    If it says "Bench Boost Active", it's definitely confirmed right?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 11 Years

      Yes

    2. Christina.
      • 14 Years

      Sure no one has really scored well enough on BB to justify nightmare status 🙂
