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.

      • 8 Years

      Courtois Meunier, just kidding I don't fancy England defense against Colombia

    2. satsumo
      • 12 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      A, Meunier on a yellow so is a subbing risk

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

        actually this

  2. themachine
    • 12 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Need your help: Mbappe + Carrasco or Griez + Cleasson?

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      G+C IMO

  3. puddingbrood
    • 10 Years

    Anyone picking pavon like me?

  4. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Is a false 9 just an 8 or 10?

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Actually can someone explain to me in very very simple terms what a false 9 is?

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

        Decoy center forward

        1. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Ah righto, so pretends to kick goals and is in that position but actually does more playmaking instead?

    2. St. Joseph
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      9.5 🙂

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        And not 8.5?

  5. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 8 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Thoughts on Ramos? Likely to be on penalties

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

      More likely but not certain

    2. Meimei
      • 8 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      I like Pique a lot, could see him score. Ramos could see him get a red.

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

    Score in game now we know teams?

    France 3 Argentina 1

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

    Neymar or Kane?

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 6 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Kane

  8. Neves say Neves
    • 6 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Any starting 4 mil keeper?

    1. jaredmason
      • 12 Years
      5 years, 11 months ago

      nope

  9. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    5 years, 11 months ago

    Link to team sheets?

  10. stat
      5 years, 11 months ago

      Why get Meunier instead of Alderweireld?

      Sure Meunier has more of an attacking threat, but isn't it a real possibility that he gets benched so he doesn't get booked and then miss the QF against Brazil (if Belgium beat Japan and Brazil beat Mexico)?

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

        he won't be benched in a knockout game. might come off early if they are well ahead

        1. stat
            5 years, 11 months ago

            Flashbacks of Christensen

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

              indeed, it could happen at HT but they would need to be 3 or 4 ahead. No way martinez would make a sub like that only 1 or 2 nil up

        2. Meimei
          • 8 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          meunier is nailed

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

        Muslera, Subasic
        Guerreiro, Carvajal, Boyata, Akanji, Maguire
        Isco, Coutinho, KDB, Claesson, Sanchez,
        Ronaldo, Mandzukic, Lukaku

        1. Silecro

        Which is better?

        A) Captain order: Greizman - Isco/Rakitic - Lukaku - Kane

        or

        B) Captain order: Muslera - Costa/Isco - Lukaku - Kane

      6. MaRooney 5
        • 11 Years
        5 years, 11 months ago

        better picks:

        a. Claesson + Mvogo (4.0 fodder GK)

        2. Atimis

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

              On this now, can get C if Swe progress and Colo fail

        3. Christina.

          1. Krafty Werks
            • 9 Years

        4. BigBarn
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Nandez likely to start, right? That would be great if so ...

        5. ChadW98
          • 7 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          Is Boyata nailed?

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

            Absolutely not, sorry.

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

            Went CSanchez after all. 0.2 more is good to have

            1. Prøfeßör …
              • 8 Years
              5 years, 11 months ago

              Fair enough.

          • 6 Years
          5 years, 11 months ago

          current midfield is isco modric coutinho and claesson...

              5 years, 11 months ago

              Quintero at 5.6 has 2 assists

              1. Nando7
                • 6 Years
                5 years, 11 months ago

                  • 7 Years
                  5 years, 11 months ago

                  But on set pieces

          2. FDMS All Starz
            • 8 Years
            5 years, 11 months ago

            Costa and Rakitic

            or

            Suarez and Lingard

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

              A for me, but Suarez is Suarez ...

          3. Louis_Sans_Balls
            • 6 Years
            5 years, 11 months ago

            anyone switching to Messi now with the new lineup?

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

              I keep Neymar Kaku and Kane, but I went for Pavon

            2. stat
                5 years, 11 months ago

                No, too expensive and would mean I have to downgrade significantly elsewhere e.g. Lukaku + Alisson vs Messi + Kawashima

            3. Kasper the ghost keeper
              • 8 Years
              5 years, 11 months ago

              Double up on Belgium or Uraguay?

              1. stat
                  5 years, 11 months ago

                  I'm quadrupling up on Belgium - Hazard, Lukaku, Alderweireld, Courtois

                  I don't have any Uruguay players but Muslera or one (or two?) of their defenders could be worth it.

              2. ChadW98
                • 7 Years
                5 years, 11 months ago

                Claesson or Quintero?

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

                Hazard for double with Kaku R16 over Costa?

              5. Addecadabra
                • 7 Years
                5 years, 11 months ago

                  • 6 Years
                  5 years, 11 months ago

                  I think so.
