Is Richarlison or Gylfi Sigurdsson better FPL value at £8.0m?

The release of the Fantasy Premier League price list has seen Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson both priced up as £8.0m midfielders.

Everton sit top of our Season Ticker for the first ten Gameweeks of the season and are the only Premier League side to avoid a ‘big six’ club in their opening half-dozen matches, so interest in the Toffees’ Fantasy assets will be keen.

Both Richarlison and Sigurdsson scored 13 top-flight goals last season and recorded their best-ever FPL points hauls.

Given that the Everton midfield duo can’t be separated by price, we will run a direct statistical comparison in the Members’ article below to weigh up the pros and cons of each asset.

As well as the usual goal threat and creativity comparisons, we’ll be assessing their record against ‘lesser’ sides (given Everton’s favourable run at the start of 2019/20) using our new Flat-Track Bully tool.

      Draft #1:

      Ryan
      Coleman, Zinchenko, van Dijk
      Sterling, Salah, Maddison, Pérez
      Firmino, Jiménez, Ings

      Button, 4.5 mid, 4.5 def, 4.0 def.

      0.0 ITB.

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Zinchenko vs Mendy is going to be a very tricky one to gauge and that's enough for me to avoid. 1st time I've seen Firmino too.

        I like the double captaincy strategy with S and S.

        1. Andy_Social

          • 6 Years

          Don't really need to "gauge" Mendy/Zinky. Just put Mendy in for now, and if Zinky plays the Community Shield do a switch and save 0.5.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          18 days, 10 hours ago

          If Zinchenko isn't playing, my plan is Pérez > Townsend to afford a 6.0 def.

    4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      18 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm more interested in the Coleman vs Digne debate myself.
      Is Digne clearly worth the 0.5 more or not?

        Have both. I am. Then you can decide to downgrade either of them for another decent def if there's no cleanies or attacking returns.

      Whilst I am here..
      Anyone picking Chelsea defenders (Luiz or Azpi) in their first drafts? A lot of uncertainty of course, but reasonable fixtures and proven performers.

      1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Not considering them until I see how they set up, where Zouma is and what price he gets, and most importantly whether they return to a back 3 to get the best out of Alonso.

      2. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Alonso is the key for me.

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Yep - I currently have Luiz. But that puts me in a minority as all Chejsea defenders are 10% owned at best

        Aside from that Mou season they’ve consistently delivered under a range of managers.

        Part of my thinking is to get premium defenders in from a range of clubs. It’ll change of course but this big back 6 has Everton Liverpool City Chelsea Spurs - plenty of attacking potential and minimal exposure to double ups - consistent cs feel probable.

        Lloris/Ederson
        Vvd TAA Luiz Digne Mendy/Trippier

        No, bit up in the air although I’d expect Azpi to be the guaranteed starter.

      I didnt realise that Siggy had his best goal return in the premier league, last season.

        Definitely interested in him. Become the Siggy of Swansea only for a better team. And on pens!

          A bunch of those starts for Saints he was left midfield but he is an attack minded defender for sure.

        • 3 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        I have Fredericks in at the moment. He's attacking and likely to be more or less nailed now I think. Targett has some decent stats mind you - he'd be the other I'd look at.

      If you just want one mid as big hitter who will it be ? And why?

      A) Salah
      B) Sterling

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        A) penalties

      2. Lovren an elevator
        • 4 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Sterling
        They're both so evenly matched but sterling does better on the bonus points and hes just that touch cheaper which could come in handy elsewhere

      4. tucaoneo

        Salah has a busy summer. That puts me off somewhat.

      5. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        A - better fixtures, likewise/replacements are around the same price, potential penalties

        B - can be either Aguero, de Bruyne, although I don’t think they will match him

      6. rocrocodile
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        I think it depends on what you do with your other LIV/MCI spots, and how the funds balance out. Right now, I think Salah/KDB + to LIV defs and Laporte/Ederson looks like the best option. But 3 x LIV defenders and no Salah could be the way to fund Kane.

        1. Pillson

      7. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        Currently Sterling - though he feels a bit overpriced

        I’m waiting on Mo to get over Afcon and hoping KdB returns to fitness in which case he could be brilliant value paired with Mo.

        As it stands I’m compensating for no Mo with both Vardy and Kane

      8. Pillson

        A all day (although I am getting both)

        He will want a big season and I expect him to be firing on more cylinders than last season (just a hunch)

        Penalties and lack of rotation competition help to nail it further

      10. leo_messi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        A with KDB and Kane looks OK for me atm

        I'm going Salah and kdb.. I just know that when son is fit il want him in and kdb is the perfect swap without leaving me with spare cash

      Siggy is just a very consistent player who averages around 5pts per 90 mins. He has played for three PL clubs and played well for all of them.

      13/14: 72 pts in 1276 mins = 5.07 pts per 90
      14/15: 154 pts in 2682 mins = 5.17 pts per 90
      15/16: 158 pts in 2914 mins = 4.89 pts per 90
      16/17: 181 pts in 3327 mins = 4.90 pts per 90
      17/18: 96 pts in 2257 mins = 3.83 pts per 90
      18/19: 182 pts in 3122 mins = 5.25 pts per 90

      1. tucaoneo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        In the long run yes. But the article pointed out he has a LOT of blanks between those hauls. If you are on board you gotta endure that.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        The one thing that would tempt me to Rich is that he has twice started the season in a blaze of glory.

    11. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      18 days, 10 hours ago

      I’ve started with Siggy, but pre season will tell more about set pieces, direct free kicks, and most importantly pens.

      That said, not averse to Richarlison, or even the potential double up. That would mean downgrading Digne and finding another 0.5 from defence to upgrade a 7.0 mid.

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        I'm just waiting for Digne to take a penalty in pre season 🙂

      Ok my turn ! What do you guys think of that ?

      Pope/Heaton
      Robbo TAA Coleman Maguire (if city)
      Salah Sterling Siggy Zaha
      King Giroud

      4 Long Dendoncker Kelly

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Wouldn’t exactly hail Giroud as a king he isn’t that good

      2. Bun Rab
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        18 days, 10 hours ago

        IF Burnley go back to how they used to defend and IF Maguire goes to city and IF Giroud starts up front then it's ok. Otherwise too many IF's atm.

      3. Canary_Kid
        • 2 Years
        18 days, 9 hours ago

        VERY similar to mine. I’ve got Ryan, Digne, Gomez and Arnie instead of bur keeper, Maguire, Robbo and Giroud. So yes I like it a lot 🙂

        When Richarlison plays in the 9 position, is he really a false nine?

        1. The Champ is here
          • 9 Years
          18 days, 10 hours ago

          Not at all. Everton never play that system. He just plays striker sometimes. Much better off the wing with DCL to run off though

          1. KujaliaFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            18 days, 7 hours ago

            That's what I thought. A false nine is when they play a midfielder who can't do holdup play at 9. Richarlison is more of a traditional 9 when he plays up there.

        Thoughts on first draft gents?
        Ederson 4.0
        Robbo Digne Coleman Fredericks Gibson
        Salah KdB Maddison 4.5 4.5
        Kane King Giroud

        Fredericks/Gibson rotation has potential, think they're both bargains if nailed, ones to watch 🙂

            He's another to monitor I think, 7.0 a steal if nailed, fixtures aren't awful either.

          Saints will likely be dangerous this year with a full Ralphie pre-season under their belts

          Will we get a viable price tag? Any chance of 5.0 or 5.5??

              Just how fitness mad is Hassenhutl? Apparently he loves a really high energy pressing game so personally I’m intruiged to see them in the early gameweeks & reckon they could shine- he seemed a very competent manager -you just never know what way things will go though!

              Ings & JWP are on my shortlist alongside CHO as the only real options in the horrible 6.0 & below attacking bucket

                I'm gonna be honest, im not optimistic of our defence. Leipzig's defence stats werent great either.
                He like to push opposing players into traps where his players can overhwelm them and win the ballup the pitch. So expect some quick, counter attack goals. Don't expect high possession percentages. His pholosophy seems to be not "you can concede a goal if you have the ball", its more,"you cant lose the ball if you dont have it"

                  The fitness demands of Ralph is why Ings cant stay fit half the time. Love the guy, hate his cursed glass legs.

                    Totally agree - apparently if you could design an attacking player to fit into a Hassenhuttl system, they wouldn’t be far off Danny Ings in terms of Pace, work rate, threat etc (and quality - the guy is class)

                    But his fitness issues are shocking - it must be so frustrating for the guy to see his career speeding past him the way it currently is, when he knows himself how good he can be when he’s not injured

                    Firmly believe if Ings could somehow get 12-15 uninterrupted games he’d be scoring goals for fun, and he has pens etc as well - really hope he stays fit as it’d be great for FPL

                Is my guess. Preseason to tell us more. I think Adams and Ings will not conpete for one spot, but will play together.

                  Interesting. Redmond won’t play as more of a striker next to Adams then? Then JWP Djenepo as CAMs with ings on the bench?

                    Nah, I think Ralph's idea is more for Redmond to be a creative no. 10, a winger who drifts centrally and created chances. Not as an out and out striker. Che much more adept at that, and I think Ings and Che will compliment each other beautifully.

            Austin is linked to Sheffield., I think. Think he is on the verge of leaving. Long, I hope stays, his style of play suits Ralph very much. A young Shane Long would be in the starting XI, I dare say.

        Perhaps against my better judgement, I’m pondering the merits of going Ederson/Dendoncker over 4.5GK/6.0 Attacker - it would leave below....

        I’m not 100% on it mind you, but we really need either a decent 4.5 GK to emerge, or a first choice Man City LB to emerge, hopefully soon

        Ederson
        Laporte, TAA, Robbo, Digne, Coleman
        Sterling, Salah, Dendoncker
        Vardy, King
        (Bench: 4x lols)

        1. Tev
          • 1 Year
          18 days, 10 hours ago

          Dendoncker as a starter feels slightly too cheap. How sure on you on Vardy? I'd probably downgrade him to upgrade a mid. Lots of good striker options

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            18 days, 10 hours ago

            Dendoncker pretty much a 2 points per week merchant as a mid...

            Vardy downgrade is always the other option, but from what i’ve Seen of him under Rodgers he’s not a player I want to be exposed to not having - an injury would actually help make the decision, but if he’s fit I need to crowbar him in unfortunately and make that compromise on he 11th player

            1. Tev
              • 1 Year
              18 days, 10 hours ago

              Fair enough, being willing to compromise like that makes the rest of your team look very nice.
              Vardy was excellent towards the end of last season, I'm just not quite convinced for some reason, 9.0m feels slightly steep.

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                18 days, 10 hours ago

                Ta, you’re dead right though in terms of the Vardy downgrade - Ederson > 4.5 & Vardy > Arnie, Wilson or Jota releases a scary amount of budget (anywhere from 2.5 to 4.0!)

                But I’m just much more excited by the potential of the roster of premium defensive options plus Sterling, Salah, Vardy this year than I am about the mid price attacking assets, including Zaha, Siggy, Rich, Bilva, Arnie, Wilson, Jota, Jimmy, etc. etc... as well as being pretty cold on he prospects of Kane, Kun, Auba etc. etc.

                Hence the big lopsided team structure lol, but will be interesting to see how things go

                  Yeah you've certainly not gone template! Vardy downgrade just looks a bit too tempting for me. Wouldn't change Ederson, City's defence is beautiful and he's probably the most nailed way in. Not overly keen on Laporte at 6.5, feel like people have an over inflated positivity about him because he returned on the gameweeks everyone had him (yes I'm still bitter). Only 5 more goal involvements than Ederson 😉

                    18 days, 10 hours ago

                    Laporte is that other opportunity I can see to release the smidgen of budget needed to turn Dendoncker into something better

                    And if a first choice LB emerges at Man City that’s a downgrade I’m totally willing to make!

                      • 1 Year
                      18 days, 10 hours ago

                      Definitely. 6.5m for a CB who's not even 100% nailed (I know he mostly is) is too much for me. There's just not *that* many great value defenders this season, which mean a 5atb basically needs Laporte

          If you're gonna play 5atb each week then i would have Ederson. That midfielder is not someone you're lookking to get many returns from. Full info I have Ederson anyway.

          Do you really want to double up Everton's defence?

          Looks promising the way the finish last year but I will wait and see.

          Of course the dilemma is who to keep.

          But why not heavier in midfielders.
          Only two of them?

            Yeah Digne/Coleman aren’t far off the first two names on my team sheet - if Gueye stays - if he doesn’t stay, I don’t think I’ll even have one of them let alone two

            It’s certainly not ideal - but the mid range attackers will disappoint many this season I reckon, there’ll be many times when they’re delivering the 2 PPG of Dendoncker but for 2-3m more

            I still don’t like it personally though & need a 4.5 GK to emerge

          No one ever ends up permacapping, remember this chat all pre season last year then everyone (rightly) switched to Kun by GW2 for example, people just use it as a justification for spending so much on one player I reckon.

          • 1 Year

          Sterling last season didn't improve his goals /assists from the year before.

          Salah had a poor season compared to his first season and was still top scorer by 20-odd points.

          Only £0.5MN in them and I think Salah is more liekly to top score again than Sterling is

            Karlan Granr type. Strong, likes to bully defenders, but has pace too. Finishing is great too.
            Aerially maybe he can improve, but I think Ings can deal with the high balls.

          Of those 2 only I would have to say Brooks for now until we see what Groß is like starting back

        Anyone reckon Groß could find some form again after his injury?

          Definitely on the watchlist - but need to see it first before paying 6.5... when he’s good he’s good though

            This. Watch for now.
            Would put Jahanbakhsh on that list too, had decent stats before last season and could come into to the reckoning if Potter likes him.

          Unsure if he fits new hipster manager style. Would probs play deeper which is a bit gross

          Hoping to see Brighton play with more attacking intent so he is worth keeping an eye on

          In my team currently, good fixtures worth a punt imo.

          He's definitely got it in him and was disappointed he wasn't able to show it last season. I'll be watching him but will wait on it

        RP on new article

        I am pretty fixed on a 4-4-2 at the moment, chopping and changing between a couple of options for the last 2 slots. Keen to get some opinions

        Ryan
        Robbo, VVD, Digne, Laporte
        Salah, Sterling, Zaha/ Siggy*, Fraser/ Maddison*
        King, Jota
        (Button) (Kelly, Dendoncker, Nketiah)

        The starred positions are the ones that are open to debate for now. Thoughts?

        Cheers

          nice.

          I'm considering Maddison + Fraser over Siggy/Zaha

            Cheers yeh those 4 all in the mix. I’m thinking I def want one of Siggy or Zaha but also the more I look at Maddison the more I like him if I’m not getting Vardy so Fraser may be the fall guy

            Fraser over Siggy seems a no brainer to me.. If he stays that is. More attacking team, basically same amount of Points last season, 0.5 cheaper.

        Anyone considering Aguero over Sterling just so you have more flexibilty?
        What I mean is what if one of the premium striker starts well etc. how you going to get them in?
        Interested to hear your take on this...

        1. Tev
          • 1 Year

          Decent idea but I'd only really be considering Kane as an alternative, who I'd want for GW1.

          Awful reason but one of the main reasons I am almost certainly going to start with Sterling over Kun this year is that I did the opposite last year and I think it really can be swings and roundabouts with those 2.

          Each has pros and cons and you just need to decide and go for it

        Maddison could make a mockery of his 7m price tag.

        -created most(99) chances in the league of all the milfs....
        More than Fraser who costs 0.5m more.(Fraser had more big chances)

        1. Tev
          • 1 Year
          18 days, 10 hours ago

          Both were ridiculously good last year. I'm keener on Maddison, purely because Leicester looks so good under Rodgers last year.

          ...he also has 83 GA's vs 51 of Fraser..also has better min/chance than Siggy...

          I am constantly switching between these exact 2 and also between Siggy and Zaha....
          Not easy working out who to take the initial plunge with!

          Any thoughts on my current draft mate (above)?

          Hoping for a decent season!

          For sure but fixtures for LEI are quite mixed at the start of season, I will wait until GW9 until getting him in.

        When is RMT going live on members' section?

        Can't wait to check this team:

        Lloris
        TAA, Mendy, Coleman, Dunk
        Sterling, Salah, Siggy, Groß
        Vardy, King

        Button : Dendoncker, Kelly, Wickham

        Planning on rotating Dunk and Kelly, but there is a huge IF on Kelly and Mendy nailing their spots

        Thoughts?
