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

Everton’s midfield and forward options could be worth including in our Fantasy Premier League squads this season.

New manager Marco Silva is expected to overhaul the style used by predecessor Sam Allardyce in 2018/19 and remove the shackles from their most dangerous players.

Two midfield options and one striker in particular, that were restricted last term, boast some underlying numbers which suggest they could impress in Everton’s appealing set of early fixtures.

Fantasy Football Scout members can view that data in the Members’ Area and also read our full analysis of it below to help them pick the best possible FPL team this season.

    I’m not very tech savvy,
    But is there a way you don’t have to sign in every day on IOS ?

        Those with Zaha, you not worried about his drop in stats away from home?

        Only 2 games at home in first 4, of which one is Livp.

          Hadn't been aware there was a big drop but seeing as how the first away game is Fulham and palace should have a bit more freedom away from home this year since they aren't starting off under Roy in a relegation fight I'm not too concerned.

          I'm also planning to upgrade either Zaha or Tosun(or other mid price fwd) to Auba or Laca early on anyway.

            He burnt me a few times last season but I currently have him in my squad.

            If Arnie got better fixtures, I'd have taken him for sure!

              I think for 7.0 & below players you kind of have to accept they won’t score points every week. He looks a good strategic pick from a crop of playable 6.0-7.0 strikers this year - Austin, King, Tosun, Arnie, Wood

              If Zaha doesn’t work out and/or one of the others goes large in GW1, thye’re Only a FT away.

                I would like to pick the right one from the off.

                  They one that goes big in GW1 probably won’t be the right one over the season. What was the Huds lad called last year?

                      Mounie! He had no FPL history, those others all do, Tosun probably to a lesser extent.

                First RMT..

                Fabianski Bettinelli
                Azpilicueta Robertson Mendy Ward Schelotto
                Mané David Silva Walcott Jota Stephens
                Aubameyang Firmino Zaha

                0.5 ITB

                Glaring this is lack of Salah.. but not sure I can justify 13.0 on him (yet).

                      It’s a cliche, but what will you do if Salah scores double figures GW1? He will be captained by >50% of the game, so that’s a lot of catching up, and a transfer wasted straight away.

                        Hope that Mané and Firmino grab an assist each 😛

                            Lol... I just think it’s like gambling on giving Salah teams a 20 point headstart & an extra FT, not putting the odds in your favour!!

                                And what if Mane scores 2 and Salah blanks in GW1?

                                  True!

                                  But, that's just an easy downgrade if you want. I think the point MBP is making is that it's 2 transfers min to get Salah in and half the game will already have his points if he scores well. It's risky to go without a 50%+ owned player for sure.

                                      Yeah,but Im talking about points and price changes
                                      That could be great start for those w/o Salah

                                      (Liverpool fan here) Mané is a lot more of a winger than salah, he is far less composed in front of goal and will often miss chances. As good a player as he is, I would bet against him scoring big.

                                          5 days, 2 hours ago

                                          I agree
                                          But that was last seasons situation,we have to see how teams will cope with Salah now,where they are 1 season smarter( or not 🙂 ),and how this will affect Manes space and his position

                                          5 days, 2 hours ago

                                          Then you’re grand because (a) Mané’s ownership will be tiny compared to Salah (b) Mane’s captaincy will be even smaller (c) you won’t have dropped any points to Salah captain teams plus that scenario is MUCH more unlikely than the alternative of Salah notching a big score (not impossible, but much more unlikely)

                                        I do love a good gamble.. although I very rarely win. A risk I'm willing to take until GW1 starts at least, haha.

                                            I do too 🙂 I just think there’s parts of your team you should be willing to gamble on (generally the cheaper sections lol) and parts where you want to be more conservative - the captaincy is sacrosanct in FPL, it’s the single most important position, and Salah looks the best choice to start the season. But definitely if you have a good feeling about no Salah then follow your gut, if he does blank and your selection does well you’ll probably be in the top 5k or top 1k straight away!

                                        20 point headstart, that’s utterly flawed logic there! And what if? What if? Useless information! Salah is so expensive the Salahless teams are better overall, so it’s not that simple anyway, th headstart would be 10 or less IF he even scores twice... for that price Salah needs to score two or at least 1+1 to be worth... if Salah only scores one in GW1 then the other have a headstart... Anyway, it’s a game of luck as anything can happen!

                                            How so? If Salah scores 12 points that’s 24 points you have given up to the 50-60% of teams who have captained him.

                                                I'm going Salah free because I'll be in a weekly money ML. The way I see it, the weeks Salah goes big I win nothing, but the many weeks he blanks puts me at a considerable advantage. I just need to come out on top 1 in 4 times to clean up.

                                                    Could be a Good tactic for a weekly league! But with those Liverpool fixtures, you will need a big sofa to hide behind 🙂

                                              A) Coleman, Jota, Tosun
                                              B) Cedric, Will Hughes, Firmino

                                              Cedric would be 4/5th defender. Hughes/Jota 4th midfielder.

                                                  Liking the Martial pick 🙂 is he a placeholder, swap to Lingard if we get Utd teamsheets, or to one of the other 7.0 +/- mids?

                                                  I would also say Martial and Sane has good chances to play at the start of the season. Not sure Valencia and Erikson is worth the outlay. Not sold on Wilshire either. Might I suggest Mahrez, Mee and Mili/Mikhi

                                                  Hi guys, what are your tactics regarding your bench? Minimize the money but with rotation and uncertainty around WC is it worth having for exemple a 4.5 def and a 5.0 mid on the bench?

                                                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                                                      5 days, 2 hours ago

                                                      I’ve went With an experimental 4.0, 4.5, 4.5, 4.0 Bench (GK, MID, MID, FWD) and 4.5m ITB.

                                                      I’m sick of trying to guess which players will do well in GW1-6 so going very structure based this year with a lot of flexibility to change to other players.

                                                      My core big hitters are Alonso, VVD, Salah, KDB, Firmino though who should hopefully be reliable.

                                                      1. A19

                                                          Interesting for the 4.5m itb, that could be really useful.
                                                          Yeah I think the priority is to have nailed on consistant big hitters with 1-2 4.5 players on the bench. Mine are Ederson Robertson Salah Mané Dilva Kun. Only hesitation is Dilva but if he does not play consistantly I can make the switch to an Arsenal mid GW3

                                                              I don’t think my team has suffered too much from it either, still happy with my GW1 11:

                                                              Fabianski
                                                              Alonso, VVD, Cedric, Tomkins
                                                              Salah, KDB, Martial
                                                              Firmino, Zaha, Austin

                                                              That 4.5m allows a quick hop onto the bandwagons as they develop, but the first 11 have a good chance or points & good fixtures... Martial is biggest gamble but relatively risk free assuming we get utd lineup before the deadline, will swap to Lingard if Martial isn’t starting, or to Milivojevic. Or Mkhi/Siggy/Theo etc if neither martial nor Lingard starting

                                                              1. A19

                                                                  Yeah decent GW1 team. Not too worry about having only KDB from City though? Especially with him coming back late from the WC

                                                                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                                                                      If Kun hattricks v Arsenal, will have to look at Zaha > Kun & that’s the full ITB fund near gone lol

                                                              B - looks for value in defence and allows flexibility with Sanchez money.

                                                                  Maybe Wolves/Cardiff GK double will be this year’s value options, 300 points for 9.0m, even though some unexpected CS points will be on the bench every week

Is this an admin error or does anyone know of an explanation why Kevin Mirallas is missing?

Once the worldcup players are back, wildcard would be inevitable. I thought it would keep me going for the initial gameweeks.
