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

The vast array of budget options at Burnley last season has seen their players receive some price hikes, which may change our perception of their performances in 2018/19.

The underlying defensive numbers and some appealing early-season fixtures mean that Nick Pope and his centre-backs are still factoring in Fantasy plans at this stage.

Going forward there was surprisingly underwhelming attacking data considering that both Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood showed they could be a decent third striker in Fantasy teams.

Fantasy Football Scout members can now read on as we delve deep into the numbers from 2017/18 to weigh up the best players to look at now that the new game has launched.

      Definitely a 7. Nice!

      If you are only playing 3 in midfield anyway, I'd strip some fat off Gudmondson and up grade Walcott or Dilva or both.

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 2 Years

        Ofcourse. Thanks

      Good

      But you don't need double Everton defence and have no United/City defence.

      Pickford/Fab to Ederson/4.0 perhaps

      1. Business Cat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        And Robertson over VVD

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Had Robbo since yesterday. Juat changed to VVD due to 100% nailedness amd set-piece threat?

    6. Sadio

      I never like to double up at the beginning of the season.

      Lowton for me

        Doubt they will do as well this.coming season

    Ederson Gomes

    Eriksen Dilva Mkhi Lookman Stephens
    Auba Firmino Vardy

    leaving lookman in for now, as an everton fan i expect him to be near the first 11 if we dont sign anyone and hes a quality player

    1. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Hard to give feedback on a team with huge doubts in it. You just got to wait and see for now.

  7. Louis_Sans_Balls
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Hey mates, switching back to WC if I may, from the more experienced players what's the better strategy at this stage to rotate between 2 good keepers or just play it out with one?

    And if only one keeper, where would you prioritize the extra man in Midfield or Defense? Already have 3 forwards.

    Cheers!

    1. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Been playing with 1 GK for last few rounds now (Pickford) 😉
      Think it’s better to rotate 1 or 2 mids/defendsers instead but that was when you could still get 4.0 GKs as fodder.
      There’s more value in GKs and DFs now so I’d stick to rotating them instead (in your case)

    Latest draft, would appreciate any feedback.

    McCarthy
    Coleman Kiko Daniels
    Salah Sané Mkhi Deulofeu
    Aguero Firmino Tosun

    Fabianski - Douglas Tomkins Masuaku

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Stephens over Masuaku otherwise good

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        What's the hype with Stephens?

  9. Puncheon Guly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    No mention of Lennon in the article. If he nails down at place, at 5m he could be a great budget midfielder.

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Hes in most of my drafts. Looked good last season when he played and offers something Burnley sorely lack at times. Seemed to link up pretty well with Ward too.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        With Lowton I mean.

  10. DJDave1979
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Unless there's a lot of transfer activity between now and the end of August, my sock drawer fiver is going on Burnley heading back to the football league. A very average squad that has done brilliantly can only overperform for so long.

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      McCarthy over Forster

  13. Scotty B
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    I think people really need to consider going with players who haven't played in quarter finals onwards of world cup or haven't played in it at all. Players who are still there now are going to be very doubtful for gw1 imo

        No no no no no don't do that

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          You think he came up with that on his own? 😛

          1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            It's less obnoxious this way at least. Tbf a lot of my ideas about FPL are influenced by what goes on around here too

    3. DJDave1979
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Seems obvious and it's not hard to get a team that doesn't need late World Cup players.

      Targeting teams that face Spurs reserves another idea.

    4. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I agree. That's why Spurs are a fat no for me to start with

    5. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      That's your opinion!

      And pretty much everybody else's 🙂

      You feeling OK Scotty?

  14. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    With Kaku, Lingard, Rashford and Pogba still in the World Cup, what’s the United forward line for the start of the season going to look like? Martial an option?

    1. lugs
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Sanchez up front surely

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Thinking that too and will keep an eye on preseason lineups

    3. DJDave1979
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Man Utd don't score that many WITH the first team. Having said that, I'm a mahoosive Sanchez fan.

    4. Sergio vamos
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Possibly Rashford could play as he hasn't had too many minutes during the WC?

  15. Business Cat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Not seen Milojovevic in any drafts yet.

    Is no-one interested at 6.5m?

    Still a bargain if he's on pens...unless there's something I don't know about?

    Or has everyone gone Deu/Walcott/Jota/Sessegnon mad?

    1. Ghost Gooner
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Too expensive. I've gone for Deu

      1. Deulofail
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        If prices were reversed I'd still go for Deu 😀

        1. Ghost Gooner
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Deulofeu at 5.5 is a steal

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      On pens and free kicks. Great option

    3. DJDave1979
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      No. He's very expensive now just to be praying Palace keep getting loads of pens. He's now priced higher than world class DMs in top teams and he IS still a DM in a bad team.

      1. Business Cat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        ...but one that takes penalties...in a team where Zaha and Townsend have trouble standing upright.

        Didn't own him last year...seemed every week he was getting a penalty the 2nd half of last season...twas ridiculous

        1. Deulofail
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I agree Milli is not poorly priced. But people understandably prefer Mkhi, Ramsey, Walcott and Deulofeu 🙂

          1. THFC4LIFE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            I’ve gone for Deulofeu myself, can’t be ignored at that price

        2. Ghost Gooner
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          He is a Xhaka on pens. When they don't come at the rate they did last season you'll see how expensive he is

          1. Business Cat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            But if they do...ch-ching!

            And it doesn't look like there'll be much change at Palace personnel or tactics wise.

            Ain't broke, why fix it?

          2. Deulofail
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            He does a bit more in for the team than Xhaka in open play going forward. Xhaka is a sideways passer and long range shooter. Milli could actually get assists on a counter attack, for example.

    4. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I doubt CPA will get 10 penalties again

      1. Fantasy Gold
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I’ve got him in my team.

    Get matip for liverpool defence.

    1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Well? What is your tip?

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Save 1.0
        He plays whenever he is fit. Gets some rest and rotation same as VVD gets some times

        1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Whoooooooosh

          That said, at 5.0 I'll prefer whichever of TAA and Clyne make it to first choice (if they ever do), plus Matip has not much attacking threat

          1. Jsadler95
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Mate he's not even back from injury yet. Lovren is also ahead of him in the pecking order, this guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Plus Gomez will likely be featuring at CB more regularly this year and he looked good against Chester the other day (albeit it was Chester) so wouldn't surprise me to see him lining up next to Van Dijk first game of the season. Ignore this guy, do not pick Matip it'd be stupid.

            1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Man I am getting Robertson and sticking, I saw Matip string together about 3 games max last season

              1. Jsadler95
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 5 months ago

                He's dreadful mate, even when he does play he's shaky as heck. I'd have sold him and signed Pavard if I was Klopp been saying this since March when he got injured. Either Pavard or De Ligt should have been brought in with Matip being sold back to Germany for £20m. I can still hope...

            2. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              I was just making a pun about the way he phrased the OP lol

              1. Jsadler95
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 5 months ago

                Oh I see hahaha ma tip, I get it now 😉

        2. Jsadler95
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          He doesn't. He's behind Lovren in the pecking order even when he's fit which isn't that often lately. Though Lovren being late back from World Cup probably will mean he won't start the first game of the season. I'd honestly expect Joe Gomez to start next to Van Dijk

          1. Jacky boy
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Check his history at transfermarket
            He is preferred cb

            1. Jsadler95
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              What are you talking about? How does his history at transfer market have anything to do with if he's the preferred CB. You understand I'm a Liverpool fan and I follow this club incredibly closely. I can tell you for a 100% fact Lovren is the first choice partner to Van Dijk not Matip, you're talking out your rear pal.

    2. Jsadler95
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      He's not even back from injury yet. I'd honestly wouldn't be surprised to see Gomez above him in the pecking order come first game of the season.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Klopp said he joins full training next week

        1. Jsadler95
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Which is fine but you're still wrong about him being first choice over Lovren. Any Liverpool fan will tell you Lovren is Klopp's preferred partner to Van Dijk. If Gomez has a good pre season at CB (where he'll likely feature most) then he could also take over Matip who looked very shaky next to Van Dijk near enough every game he played (and I'd know because I watched every single one last season).

    This time last year, the 8.0 9.0 range really stood out looking at midfield choices. This year, it seems kind of threadbare. Where the value seems to lie this time is in 7.0 - 6.0. I can name 4 6.5 mids alone that could have a lot of potential. This, added with the clear attempt to make third strikers viable again makes me think that premium mids might be harder to justify this time around, as we had less budget options really (last year, the only 6.5 was Tadic).

      That's why 523 was the way to go last year, but this year we can afford 553 🙂

      1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Imo 4-4-2 was better, or 5-3-2. There were lots of good premium mids after all

        1. Deulofail
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          In hidsight there were yes, but I was pretty convinced that Jesus, Lacazette and Kane would do the business

            I remember looking at your pre season team and thinking what on earth!

            It kind of did work out a bit tbf to you, the 5 man defence worked out nicely iirc

            1. Deulofail
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Yeah all was good except the forwards didn't fire

  20. 1justlookin

    a) Salah & Cairney

    OR

    b) Mane & Walcott

    1. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Will Cairney play all the games for you or rotate?

      1. 1justlookin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        All, unfortunately. Had to be my 4th Mid to get Salah. :-/

    2. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Mane is too bad pick imo

  21. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    1st draft -

    Ederson, Speroni.
    Robertson, Coleman, Mee, Cedric, Malone.
    Salah, D.Silva, Mkhy, Cairney, Masuaku.
    Aguero, Firmino, Tosun.

    Am I getting there?

    1. Areid13
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Mkhi has good potential for his price but starts against city and Chelsea so he’s a no from me atm

      1. 1justlookin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I know what you mean, that is off putting but it saves making a transfer to get him in, in GW 3. Not sure who else I would want round about that price bracket.

        Already got Tosun & Coleman, so not sure about Theo.
        Delofeau could be an option, but hes frustrating to own

    2. Deulofail
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Don't peak too early. You wanna "get there" minutes before the GW1 deadline 🙂

      It looks perfectly fine to me

      1. 1justlookin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Ha.

  22. Areid13
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Tinkered a bit, thoughts?

    Pickford
    TAA Ward Tomkins
    Mane sane pogba Richarlison
    Lukaku Firmino Tosun

    Fab neves Bamba Ream

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I’d go Richarlison to Deulofeu then use the 1.0 to upgrade your defence. A good team though.

  23. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Do you think kdb will start the season?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      no... id say nearly no chance

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      0.1% chance.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      No

  24. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    How big of an impact do we think this is going to have on the GW1 to GW3 line-ups ?? The players below are surely untouchable on inital drafts right?

    PL players who will be involved with their national team until the 14/15th of July, meaning a reduced rest period as well as a shortened pre-season, with a few likely to be late back:
    9:
    - Spurs: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose, Dembele, Alli & Kane.
    7:
    - Chelsea: Courtois, Cahill, Kante, RLC, Hazard, Batshuayi & Giroud.
    - Man City: Walker, Stones, Kompany, Mendy, Delph, KDB & Sterling.
    - Man United: Jones, Young, Pogba, Fellaini, Lingard, Rashford & Lukaku.
    3/4:
    - Liverpool: Mignolet, TAA, (Lovren) & Henderson.
    2:
    - Leicester: Maguire & Vardy.
    1:
    - Arsenal: Welbeck.
    - Burnley: Pope.
    - Everton: Pickford.

    0: Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, CPalace, Fulham, Huddersfield, Newcastle, Southampton, Watford, West Ham & Wolves.

    Likely a bigger issue for Spurs than the rest as on any given match day that 9 + 2 others could well be their starting team.

    Seems like there's plenty of choice for a 3rd forward this year.

    Zaha, Tosun, Arnie, Barnes, Wood.

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      wouldnt touch Burnley this year , with their european commitments could struggle.

  26. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Which 4.5 to get along with Fabianski? I guess Southampton and Crystal Palace too risky, who will start?
    Maybe find way for Ederson +4.0?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      iv gone ederson & 4.0M until the wildcard

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I’m going with Ederson and a 4m. Set and forget. The way I see it Man City will be in the top 2/3 teams for clean sheets and he passes the ball like a playmaker which equals more baps

    3. 1justlookin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Fulham & Southampton rotate nicely.

      atm, I'm on Ederson

    4. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Get a 4.0

  27. A message to you Rudi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Draft #0004

    Pope
    Davies Coleman Alexander-Arnold
    Salah Sanè Eriksen Walcott Milivojevic
    Firmino Zaha

    (Hamer, Tomkins, Schelotto, Quaner)

    Hows this looking?

  28. Robbieblob
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    No Chelsea or spurs but triple Liverpool and city good?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      yes could work... what players? ... if you get Mahrez now you can have 4 city players

  29. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    What are you doing different this season?

    I will care a lot less about fixtures and more about form, quality and nailedness. Missed out on many hauls because I got too fancy and fixture oriented. I think people who stay away from Arsenal for the first 2 fixtures could get burned hard if they do well and players lke Ramsey and Mkhi rise. City wont be full strength and Chelsea are inconsistent.

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Taking a lot less hits, saving all my chips til the end and not chasing price rises. All about the points this year. May even buy a membership

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Captaining Salah more!

    3. Reuser
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Trying to have a stronger bench in order to mitigate inevitable rotation.

    4. Jsadler95
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Less hits and if I take them then they need to be calculated long term. Did okay last year, was my first proper season and got 75k OR. Want to go for top 10k this year. Will basically do things very similar to last year, just will try to be more knowledgeable and better planned.

  30. Choupo Trap House
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    My first draft - any obvious improvements?

    Fabianski / Bettinelli
    Bellerin / Coleman / Daniels / Kiko / Bednarek
    Salah / D. Silva / Mkhi / Jota / Stephens
    Auba / Firmino / Zaha

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      you an Arsenal fan ? why 3 arsenal with tough opening 2 fixtures?

      1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I'd imagine it's because after that their fixtures are golden, and just because a fixture is tough doesn't mean there won't be goals in them.

        Bellerin is a strange one though I agree

        1. Choupo Trap House
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Bellerin is a very attacking, nailed-on wing-back in a potentially transformed side. And he's priced at 5.5

          1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Arsenal barely have 1.25 CBs, I doubt they'll play with 3 atb and wingbacks.

            1. Choupo Trap House
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Fair enough, I guess we'll learn more in preseason!

          2. @fpl_phenom
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            id rather start with Aguero but best of luck

            1. Choupo Trap House
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Yeah, that may be the way to go for the first two GWs

    2. Ghost Gooner
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'd start with someone else in the Arsenal spots and transfer them in gw3
