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

The departure of Riyad Mahrez is the theme that runs throughout our latest detailed analysis for the new Fantasy Premier League season.

The Algerian leaves a big hole at Leicester City from both a goal-scoring and assist-providing perspective, meaning those left behind will have to up their game.

We’ve gone over last season’s underlying statistics to assess which players could fill the void and whether the Foxes are worth considering in 2018/19 without Mahrez.

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.

    1. Ramsey and Lamela

    or

    2. Eriksen and Wilshere

    ?

      2 without doubt, Eriksen will get you consistent points & Wilshere could be a good threat. Neves for me is a good 5m too.

    Best mid option up to 6.5m?

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

      deulofeu, wilshere, neves, kante...

      1. Deeney-is-a-god
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Deulofeu is a good option, kante is a terrible one...

    Who have the best chances to start the season for Everton as CB ?

    1. Jagielka
    2. Williams
    3. Holgate

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      3 imo. Personally, I think he's their best CB.

    2. Little Frank
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Holgate atm but I wouldn't be surprised if they signed someone else before the window closes.

  4. Zladan
    • 1 Year

    DDG
    Robertson PVA Smalling
    Salah Siggy Sanchez Costa
    Agüero Sørloth Tosun

    Button Wan-Bissaka Masuaku Bennett

    £1m itb

    1. ajones1608
      • 1 Year

      Like it, not sure if costa is nailed for Wolves though & better options up front? Not seen much of Sorloth tbf

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 3 days ago

        I am considering ditching Smalling to a 5.5 or a 5 which would free up the jump to Jota.

        Sørloth has been overlooked on here in my opinion. I reckon he will be the pick of the budget strikers.

        1. ajones1608
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 3 days ago

          Fair shout, thing is if you want MU cover in defense, you can only rely on Smalling starting.

          Is he likely to start up front with Zaha? I see Lookman as one that's been overlooked too, either that or I am wasting money!

    Rmt please;

    3-4-3

    Pickford

    Azpi, Trippier, Robertsson

    Jota, Milijovetic, Salah, Sigurdson

    Firm, Zaha, Tosun

    Bench; Fabianski, Tarkowski, Daniels, Deulofeu.

    1. ajones1608
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Really good, plenty of save points

    2. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Kane/Auba/Agüero plan?

  6. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How long before Keita becomes the next FFS bandwagon? 😉

    Seriously though, may be worth an early punt?

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Watching him preseason I’m not convinced he will be a good FPL asset.

  7. probuster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    How she looking?

    Ederson
    Shaw-daniels-cedric
    Sane-salah-mkhtaryan-lamela
    Arnautovic-firmino-aguero

    Bench: dogshit

    Too much of a template team?

    Feedback would be much appreciated

    1. Adams6
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      I wouldn't recommend a "dogshit" bench at any time of the season, especially the beginning when we are unsure of starting line ups. Teams are all rotated a little bit more now days so you need to have something on your bench to step in for you.
      Daniels isn't nailed
      Shaw isn't nailed
      I'm not sure Lamela is nailed
      Who knows where Arnie will play under a new manager.

      1. probuster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 2 days ago

        So went for better Bench.

        Ederson
        Shaw-daniels-cedric
        Salah-mahrez-martial-lamela
        Arnautovic-zaha-firmino

        BENCH: boruc, Felipe Anderson, kane, mee

        1. probuster

    Afternoon ladies

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Morning LR 🙂

      Started FPL planning yet?

      1. Lateriser 12
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        All caught up and deep in it. 5 cash leagues signed up for.
        😉

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 3 days ago

          Nice. Anyone absolutely nailed in your team?

          Probably just Kun, Salah & Mahrez for me. I think those three have the highest points ceiling for the first couple of games.

          1. Lateriser 12
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 3 days ago

            Kun Salah Mahrez & Robbo nailed in my team.

            Current draft is
            4.5 4.0 (Palace)
            Robbo Coleman Ward Cedric Schelotto
            Salah Mahrez Martial 5.0 4.5
            Bobby Kun Tosun

            Could downgrade Tosun to Barnes/Wood and get a better 4th mid.

            1. Giggs Boson
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 3 days ago

              Nice. Banking on Sanchez not making the start of the season?

              Robertson has been in mine since the start. His crossing is incredible, and seems to be getting better with every game. Could be in for an amazing season.

              1. Lateriser 12
                • 6 Years
                5 months, 3 days ago

                Why go Alexis when you have Martial for so cheap. Best placeholder for those arsenal mids gw3.

              2. Bilbao Baggins
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                5 months, 3 days ago

                Is Sanchez injured?

        2. Bald Eagle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 3 days ago

          Hi mate, any place left for these 5 leagues? 😉

  9. ajones1608
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Ederson

    Azpil, Otamendi, Maguire

    Salah, Lookman, Sane, Kenedy

    Firmino, Arnie, Zaha

    Bench: TAA, Neves, Douglas

    Bench too strong, midfield too week?

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      If you don’t captain Salah, who do you captain?

      Roll the dice on Sané? Is he reliable captain material?

      Firmino would always be second choice to Salah, so not really an option.

      I feel you’re missing a premium player worthy of the armband: Agüero, Sanchez, Auba, Kane, Hazard, Lukaku.

  10. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 3 days ago

    Best Goalkeeping pair?

    A) DDG & 4.0 fodder
    B) Ederson & 4.5

    1. ajones1608
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      B, Ederson has potential for a lot of clean sheets at the start of the season, but a you could find a 4.5 with potential for bonus points

    2. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Ederson + 4.0

    3. Victor6359
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      B for me

  11. FlytzoBazooka
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Is Mahrez nailed??

    • Silecro
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 3 days ago

      Is Keane nailed as Everton CB? Not willing to upgrade to Coleman bc i'm happy with rest of my team

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 3 days ago

        Probably; due to lack of CB choices.

    • HenryPham13
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 days ago

      What do you guys think? Should I get Sane/Mahrez or am I fine in the midfield?

      McCarthy (Fabianski)
      Cedric, PVA, Shaw (Diop and Daniels)
      Salah, Martial, Milivojevic, Jota (Stephens)
      Zaha, Aubameyang, Aguero

    • Toon_Army666
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 2 days ago

      Cant find Mirallas on FPL?

        That's cause you shouldn't buy him. It a fail safe.
