FPL reveal Salah’s price and position for 2019/20

Following Wednesday evening’s surprise announcements, Fantasy Premier League released five more player prices ahead of the game’s relaunch for 2019/20.

The big news saw Mohamed Salah drop in price and remain an FPL midfielder.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) – Midfielder

Perhaps the headline price reveal of the day sees Mohamed Salah not only stave off a positional reclassification but also drop in price.

The Egyptian was £13.0m a year ago and got as high as £13.6m in Gameweeks 24-28 of the season just gone.

While he couldn’t match his record-breaking returns of 2017/18, Salah was still the highest-scoring FPL asset of last season.

Salah remaining as a Fantasy midfielder presumably means that there won’t be any seismic shift in terms of positional grouping (i.e. wingers in a front three won’t be reclassed as forwards) and that the likes of Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling will remain as FPL midfielders.

All eyes will be on Mane’s price reveal, whenever that may come, to see how much the Senegalese winger has risen ahead of 2019/20 and how much cheaper he is than Salah this time around.

Jack Grealish (£6.0m) – Midfielder

The first Fantasy asset from the newly promoted clubs has been revealed.

Jack Grealish will cost FPL managers £6.0m next season, having registered six goals and seven assists in 34 Championship starts in 2018/19.

Grealish tends to play as one of the two more advanced central midfielders in a 4-1-4-1/4-3-3 though is given license to get forward from that position under attack-minded manager Dean Smith.

Grealish takes his fair share of corners for Villa and had a better rate of chances created than any of his teammates in the second tier.

It’ll be interesting to see what price Conor Hourihane, Villa’s other dead-ball expert, is listed as when the FPL game launches.

Callum Wilson (£8.0m) – Forward

Callum Wilson is the second Bournemouth asset priced up by FPL and, like Ryan Fraser, he has been handed a £2.0m rise from his starting price last season.

Wilson finished 2018/19 as the fifth-highest-scoring FPL forward despite missing eight of Bournemouth’s league matches.

Sergio Aguero and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were the only strikers to register more attacking returns than Wilson (26).

It’ll be interesting to see what price Joshua King and Raul Jimenez are as a result of this announcement: King as an alternative route into the Bournemouth attack and Jimenez as a rival in the upper mid-price/lower premium forward bracket.

King indeed outscored Wilson in the preceding three seasons, although there were mitigating circumstances (injuries being one) for that.

Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) – Forward

Norwich City’s main goal threat has been listed as a £6.5m forward, exactly what Aleksandar Mitrovic was at the start of 2018/19.

Teemu Pukki plundered 29 goals in the Championship last season, with not one coming from the penalty spot.

The Finland international was joint-top for shots in the English second tier in 2018/19 and first for efforts in the box.

Pukki also contributed nine assists to the Canaries’ promotion-winning campaign.

Norwich face Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in the opening five Gameweeks and sit bottom of our Season Ticker as a result.

The picture looks rosier from Gameweek 6 onwards, so Pukki may enter the FPL radar from that point.

The Canaries have signed striker Josip Drmic in the past few days, however, which will add to Pukki’s competition up front.

Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) – Forward

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has been handed an expected price hike after his much-heralded debut Premier League campaign but the rise isn’t perhaps as bad as feared.

Jimenez began 2018/19 as a budget £5.5m option but rose more than any other FPL asset over the season, briefly hitting the £7.0m mark.

The Mexico international, currently representing his country at the 2019 Gold Cup, hit 13 goals and registered ten assists in the season just gone.

As we discussed earlier, Callum Wilson is £0.5m more expensive than Jimenez but did register more attacking returns (26 v 23) and had a better points-per-match average than the Wolves forward (5.6 v 4.76).

The next thing we’ll be looking out for is Diogo Jota‘s price and position, with the Portuguese attacker anticipated to be reclassified as an FPL forward based on his run up front from Gameweek 15 onwards.

    Was wondering if Grealish might be £5.5m, but £6.0m too much for me. If McGinn or Hourihane are £5.5m, they'll be the better option.

    1. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      He doesn't even have a noticable record in championship

    2. avfc82

      22 days, 12 hours ago

      I'm not so sure, everything goes through Grealish, and if there's only 0.5 difference and you want a Villa midfielder, I'd probably try and fit him in. No guarantees Hourihane will be a starter next season either.

        Oh really? Surprised by that. Looked so important last season. Attacking stats very good too for someone who has defensive duties too!

          I'd be surprised if we can role with a midfield 3 of McGinn, Hourihane and Grealish in the Prem. I think we'll need someone more defensively minded sitting. Whelan was preferred to Hourihane a fair bit last season for those reasons. I'm pretty sure we'll see a new holding midfielder arrive soon, one to keep an eye on!

    Desperate measures from FFS to get traffic back on to the site. Even price leaks from FPL isn't helping. I've never seen the site this dead

      it will be even once fpl open up the site, patience mate

    @OfficialFPL is taking their sweet, sweet time for the second reveal today.

    1. Pasqualinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      That's fair enough. If they keep going at their current rate we'll have all of this year's player prices plus half of next year's before the game opens.

      1. Differential (c)

        I thinks it more like they love to see us squirm xD

      Started earlier today, guessing it will be more stretched out

      1 per hour. Next reveal at 10.30.

  4. avfc82
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    22 days, 12 hours ago

    I think 6.0 is fair.

    He'll do well with key passes and dribbling, wins so many free-kicks too. 6 goals and 7 assists sounds bang average, but people forget he was out injured for 3 months, and had to play under Steve Bruce from August - October.

    Since he returned from injury in March, it's 4 goals and 3 assists in 13 matches, which is probably a better representation of what to expect.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      its a fair price, we've been spoiled last season with the likes of Fraser and Jiminez doing really well at that price.
      Just not for me though. I'm looking for the next Fraser/Jimmy.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Do you see El Ghazi being an option?

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          Nope, not yet, too much inconsistency in his game.

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            22 days, 12 hours ago

            Fair enough. Will watch and wait. Cheers!

        2. The 5% Team
          • 1 Year

          think he'll do very well, definitely on my watchlist

    2. DavidMunday815
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Yes - he definitely did much better in the second half of the campaign, you're right. How concerned are you about his injury record though? His last one was a shin problem and, as you say kept him out for a while. Seems a bit fishy considering his shin pad policy to me... what do you think?

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        He was the most fouled player in the Championship last season, by a long long way. Not sure he'll targeted as much in the Premier League, which should help.

        1. DavidMunday815
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          Yeah they definitely targeted him a lot. Makes sense from a tactical perspective. Be interesting to see if that continues in the Premier League, especially with VAR coming.

        2. Union_Jacks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          Dan James wasn’t far behind actually.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            22 days, 12 hours ago

            1 Grealish - Aston Villa (158)
            2 Wilson - Derby (113)
            3 McGinn - Aston Villa (111)

            How many times was Dan James fouled?

            1. Vobinho In Wengerland
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              22 days, 12 hours ago

              Do you think he has the capability of drawing fouls in the pen box, just thinking of his penalty assist potential with VAR?

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                22 days, 10 hours ago

                Possibly yes, but the reason he was targeted in the Championship is because he was so much better than the majority of players. Teams figured out if you stop Grealish, you stop Villa. I doubt Premier League teams will do the same, certainly not as much.

            2. avfc82
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              22 days, 10 hours ago

              Around 90 is the answer, a long way behind Grealish.

    3. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Plus the early fixtures look alright.

      1. Shackalackaboomboom
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        This

  5. Wilson at 8m - A good mid-range forward option?
    Zladan
    • 1 Year
    22 days, 12 hours ago

    Wilson £8m

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      As expected. A very reasonable price for a forward who performed so well last season.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        14G 9A for 8m . . .
        Sheff and AVFC as their first two games.

        Looking more and moer like a potential bargain.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Fair price.

    3. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Decent price, no surprises I think. Good fixtures to start might make him or King very popular

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        GW3-5 putting me off a bit. Leicester/Everton marked as "blue" on the Season Ticker but two of the in-form teams at the back-end of last season. That may count for naff all in August, of course. Very possible I'll take a punt on King in the first two GWs (hoping for an early-season spike in VAR-related penalties till it settles down).

        1. Rotation's Alter Ego
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 7 Years
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          My thinking exactly with King. By good fixtures, I did just mean those first 2 - hate planning transfers early doors, but looks particularly tempting here...

    4. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      hope king comes at 6.5

    5. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      I wonder if £8m is a popular price point this year. Jiménez to be the same price as Wilson?

      £8m is fairly steep for a second striker. Last year £6.5m was ideal.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        I think its actually a fair price. My second striker on my GW1 team was 9.5m Firmino, so I think tinkering my team with an 8m second striker should be no issue.

      2. Marmalade Forest
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        A lot of plans at the start of last year were Zaha/Arnie both at 7.

        No one thought Jiminez was an option until after the start of the season.

    6. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Would you rather have Wilson in your team at $8m or Vardy at $9m? Extra $1m for PK's seems like a 'no-brainer.'

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        Maybe Vardy drops to £8m. Vardy Jimmy Wilson Arnie in a similar bracket.

        Rashford, Bobby and Laca just above those guys. £9/9.5m?

        1. pokern1nja09
          • 6 Years
          22 days, 12 hours ago

          Vardy can't be 8M. Everyone would have him. Rashford isn't worth 9M either imo

          1. Zladan
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 12 hours ago

            True. 18 goals is no joke. I’d be surprised to see a fall upon reflection. More likely a rise.

    7. pokern1nja09
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      So how much do we think King will be seeing as we having Wilson/Fraser prices?

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        £7m

      2. AuFeld
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 12 hours ago

        $7m / $7.5m

    8. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Too expensive IMO. Always picks up injuries and question marks over whether Bournemouth can repeat or better the performance of last season.

      Would prefer to pay a little more for someone like Lacazette or Vardy who are more proven goalscorers in attacking teams.

    9. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      No issues with this price. Seems fair and expected. I can’t see me owning him but who knows

    10. Marmalade Forest
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Lukaku to come in at 7.5m then?

    11. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      I assume that will mean Vardy at 9.5 maybe even 10?
      It will make Firmino's pricing interesting as well - he tailed off at the end of the season through injury.

    12. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Expected. Can’t do that for a team that can beat chelsea one week then lose 4-0 to Burnley the next.

      Fair price for the player, not something I would look to for a team like Bournemouth.

    13. PUMPKINHEAD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 10 hours ago

      He will be heading my attack line. Happy with 8 mil

  6. Godfrey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    22 days, 12 hours ago

    I think 8.0 for Wilson is fair.

  7. Little Red Lacazette
    • 2 Years
    22 days, 12 hours ago

    That puts an end to the Wilson + Fraser combo. Pick 1.

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 12 hours ago

      Maybe it’s Brooks and King this year.

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 10 Years
        22 days, 11 hours ago

        I assume Brooks will be the value pick because he tailed off during the season.

  8. diesel001

    IND vs WI: India won the toss and will bat first.

  11. Salah at 12.5m - Will he justify the premium price?

    Salah £12.5m

    1. Bambi

      Fair price

    2. Gringo Kid

      Like it, must for me

    3. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Mid or a forward?

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 11 hours ago

        Mid

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          22 days, 11 hours ago

          Amazed that they haven't moved him to Forward, he played more advanced than Firminio for most of the season!

          1. HamezMace
            • 4 Years
            22 days, 11 hours ago

            This rule applied to a great many players;

            Mane
            Sterling
            Son
            Moura
            Hazard
            ...and loads more, but you get the point.

    4. Godfrey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Must have I guess, especially as midfielder.

    5. Bambi
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Mane to be 11.5? Sterling 12?

      1. pokern1nja09
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 11 hours ago

        mane 11 sterling 11.5

    6. The 5% Team

      that's a big surprise I must say

        Liverpool assets getting priced pretty reasonably so far

    8. speedyboyzz - RoboKlopp
      • 2 Years

      Stays a mid too. Great.....

      1. Zladan
        • 1 Year

        Yes, a big point worth noting.

    9. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Season keeper. Doubted him for a little spell and then he gets that Bournemouth hat trick and he was straight back in.

      Same price, same story. GW1 signing.

      Ignoring him after Afcon!

      I’m also factoring in how many he played last year and the lack of break before CL final.

      he was worth it at 13m now he's 12.5 and will probably score more goals than he did last season...looking like absolutely essential imo

      Disappointing from FPL that.

      He will be picked by all the ghost teams that will go on to beat me. I will drop him after he fails to bag a glut against Norwich in GW1. He will then score 300 over the next 37 games. I will refuse to pick him due to stubbornness.

      More surprised at 12.5 than I would've been with 13.5 tbh.

        Aye, highest scoring player two years on the bounce gets a price decrease, wasn't expecting that.

      Surprised, top scorer two years in a row, on penalties if Milner doesn’t consistently play, golden boot two years running, seems a bit cheaper then expected.

      The value Mane has now is potentially diminished.

      To afford Robbo and TAA I think it'll have to be Mane as the third, but Salah's stats are that much better.

      Can only do what we can on budget though.

        check the home stats (mane hates away games) and especially FPL points at home...

    2. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Spot on, it is funny how fpl can manipulate the masses by revealing the prices bit by bit.
      I must admit I find it funny when I hear the phrase 'I am excited by that price'.
      Dare I say it, It all seems a bit childish.

      Personally I will be looking for value where I think can find it.
      But I can only do that when the game is launched.

    Scenes when Sterling is a 13.0 Forward

    1. Zladan
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Scenes indeed. But given Sterling scored fewer points than Salah, I imagine he won’t be priced higher. Could well be the same price, but 12m midfielder seems more likely.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 11 hours ago

        Would be an interesting toss up between Kun and Sterling though if it happened. But yeah, unlikely to happen.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Won't happen, but would be hilarious if they did that, especially if he's priced identical to Aguero!

    I think the votes in the article above are interesting.

    I went with the general consensus every time surprisingly. Wilson was a toss up, may not go with, but will consider.

  23. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
    • 10 Years
    22 days, 11 hours ago

    I just looked at Villa's fixtures, 'there is goals/assists in them there hills.'
    Grealish looks like the pick to have (I assume he will be the most expensive villa player) - bench gw1 then downgrade later on if required.

    I have to separate my feelings over Grealish's 'u-turn' nature when it came to his international future though.

      No thanks, not just yet

    2. Zladan

      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Nice entry price. LFC (a), Chelsea (h) & City (h) in the opening 5 deter me from signing him at the start of the season. But a very nice wait and see option.

    3. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope!

    4. HamezMace
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      Wasn't considering him anyway. Expect Norwich to finish in the bottom three, and Pukki has a terrible record in any top division.

      Just annoyed that at £6.5m I doubt even people who were claiming he'd be the first name in their squads will now probably avoid him too.

    5. Rotation's Alter Ego

      No from me. Bit too pricey early doors to make it into my team, but priced correctly from FPL's point of view I think.

      Will be interesting to see how himself and Norwich fair this year though

    6. asquishypotato

      22 days, 10 hours ago

      No initially, expect a price drop and then to reassess.

      Expected price, could lure people being top scorer. Was he on penalties as well?

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        One of five players who missed a penalty for Norwich last season!

      • 1 Year
      22 days, 10 hours ago

      Not a fan of that price tag, I can't remember another forward coming up from the Championship costing that much, I'm sure gayle was only 5.5 after hitting 25 for NUFC in their last season out of the top flight.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 11 hours ago

        I thought 6.0 would be reasonable. Had him pencilled in before the fixtures came out. Norwich not on my opening shortlist now. Will be looking for a 6m starting striker though.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years

          sure you can shave off 0.5 somewhere, although their starting fixtures are far from ideal

  26. Bambi

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 11 hours ago

      That is said every year but a template always emerges.
      The secret is to get on the 'template' before it becomes template and know when to move to the 'new template'.

      The three layers are always
      High ownership in the game over all - popular players from the big teams.

      The 'template' from this site and group think managers who are told that xyz player is a must have/essential - and others who have abc player and will not sell because of 'underlying stats'

      The final group of players are those who are ignored by the first two groups and go under the radar for whatever reason.
