Pulisic among the new players priced up by FPL

Tuesday evening saw Fantasy Premier League price up 13 more players, most of whom are new arrivals at their respective clubs.

Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) is perhaps the most noteworthy addition, with the USA international set to join up with his new Chelsea teammates once his country’s CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign is over.

Pulisic becomes Chelsea’s most expensive player in FPL, with all of the Blues’ other assets costing £7.0m or less.

The west London club acquired the young winger in January but loaned him straight back to Borussia Dortmund.

His 2018/19 campaign was disrupted by injury, with only nine of his 20 appearances coming from the start.

Pulisic registered four goals and four assists in 932 minutes of Bundesliga football last season.

The much-hyped American has yet to hit the five-goal mark in a single campaign, however.

Mateo Kovacic, who recorded only two attacking returns in a loan spell with Chelsea last season, is available at £5.5m following his permanent move.

Moussa Djenepo (£5.5m) and Che Adams (£6.0m) have also been added to the game, with Adams costing the same as Danny Ings (£6.0m).

Djenepo’s price is intriguing, despite the caution we urged in our Scout Report on the Mali international: £5.5m being about as low as he could possibly have been listed as given his attacking potential.

We’ll have an article out on Adams in the coming weeks, too, looking at his credentials as an FPL forward.

The former Birmingham City striker scored 22 goals in 46 Championship appearances last season.

Norwich’s summer recruits Josip Drmic and Patrick Roberts are available at £5.5m, while Aston Villa striker Wesley Moraes has been listed at £6.0m.

Three goalkeepers who may very well be back-ups at their respective clubs next season have been added at £4.5m: Emiliano Martinez, Simon Moore and Jed Steer.

Steer played 18 Championship games after Orjan Nyland (£4.5m) and Lovre Kalinic picked up injuries but impressed in the run-in and signed a new contract at the end of the season.

Villa have since been linked with Jack Butland, so Steer may well be playing second fiddle again come Gameweek 1.

Aaron Lennon is available at £5.0m for Burnley, meanwhile.

Finally, there are two new defenders priced up at £5.0m: new Leicester City full-back James Justin and Watford’s latest recruit Craig Dawson.

Centre-back Dawson was a bit of a cult Fantasy favourite at West Brom, twice scoring four goals in a single season and hitting double figures for clean sheets on two occasions, too.

Justin may well provide back-up to the Foxes’ first-choice full-backs at first but is a name to monitor given his attacking reputation.

    What nobody is talking about is that White was in an offside position when the original ball was played through.

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years

      doesn't matter - she wasn't interfering with play in that part.

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      She was on

    3. Giggs Boson

      How many accounts do you have?

      Wrong and you're not even close.

      If I'm offside when a ball is played to a teammate, and then I receive the very next pass, that's not an infraction? I didn't gain an advantage by being offside initially? If you say no, then fine, but it's at least debatable.

      1. Gnu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Wasn't offside so no argument regardless.

      2. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        No, provided you are not interfering with play.

    6. I Must Break You

      I just read the laws of the game (Law 11) and Diesel is correct. Even though White was in an offside position on the initial through ball, she was not interfering with play and was subsequently not offside on the pass to her, and therefore did not commit an offense.
      Thanks for your contribution to the discussion, Gnu. Genius stuff, really.

      1. Gnu

        Your one and a half line sentence that was factually wrong was a work of art so that's high praise indeed.

    Seriously why didn't they practice penalties? They missed the last two, surely they should have proper looked into that...

    1. J.ID
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'm sure they did it's just the nerves though

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You can't practice confidence / arrogance, which is what is needed to put away penalties.

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

        Just ask Paul Pogba

        1. diesel001
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          His penalty record is decent though. Think Rashford shows a lot of it when he takes penalties too.

    3. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      How do you know they didn’t? You can’t practice that sort of pressure

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I don't know they didn't but that was poor.

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        No but top sports people have an ability to cope. That wasn't an unwilling 6th person in a shootout, that was the selected person. If the keeper pulls off a great save, deal with it. That was just awful technique. Scuffed in to the ground. Keeper could have nipped home to feed the cats and still got back and saved it.

      It's a different kind of football I find it somewhat entertaining

        This. It’s not like it’s men v women

      What makes me dislike women's football the most is that the BBC ram it down my throat and try and make me feel guilty for not being interested.

      Of course, half the women playing in the world cup are part-time professionals. The men's game gets multi-million pound training academies for kids from a young age, money for the very best fitness coaches, countless different types of sport science people contributing to the extremely high level of performance. The women's game gets peanuts by comparison, obviously the men's game is going to be of a much higher quality. To change the game, we have to make sport more equal, and then we will see an increase in quality from the women

    An England team losing again in the semi final of a major tournament. Familiar story. Pathetic penalty. My 9yr old would have struck it better

      It's a lot of pressure mate I don't think your factoring that in

            Bull mate. You have to be strong under pressure. This is what separates winners from losers. We will always be losers. The pen was a woeful strike

      I don't care about women's football in all honesty . I just think Phil and Gary are a pair of bellends so I have no sympathy 😆

        • 8 Years

        Me neither mate really but I got into it because it's an England team. Why didn't White take that penalty? Ludicrous decision

        • 8 Years

        Phil Neville just being interviewed and said that the USA showed great experience taking the ball into the corner at the end! Doesn't take experience to do that, it's just what you do you absolute baffoon!

      Good team. Maybe wait to see which £5.5 City defender is nailed, swap Mendy for him, then upgrade Jota for Giroud or Arnie (pending resolution of their respective circumstances)

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Jota to Arnautovic I believe would be a downgrading in terms of points. I think Jota will do very very well.

    England beaten by a better team who have better individual players too. Neville doesn't have the tactical genius required to beat those teams.

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Felt Neville lost his nerve going with the 442. Too reactive. Should have played with their usual 433 and let the US react to them.

      USA deserved winners though.

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Three things need to change:

        1) England need to find better athletes
        2) England need more arrogance
        3) England need a manager who is very tactical to outfox the better teams

    Pulisic should be 6.0 M tops but it looks like all players are about 0.5M too expensive

    American players are going to be huge buyers.

    Totally unknown at this level of competition. That’s the same price as Fraser that got 21 FPL returns.

    1. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I wonder if it was in response to all the raised eyebrows about Chelsea not having a player over 7m

    2. Licky
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think they always overprice unknown quantities to a degree, Pulisic obviously comes with a lot of hype and a big reputation, he's a really talented player and by all accounts is a hard worker and a player with his head screwed on right, so I think he'll be a really good player and can kinda understand the price in terms of potential but we won't see it this year in my opinion.

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

      I think it’s a fair price. Willians price is based off his last season and also with hazard being in the side. Pulisic will start more often than Pedro, unless he does worse than expected.

    are Everton's early fixtures actually that good for clean sheets?

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Could be worse, could be better.

      But looks good for attacking returns from Digne and Coleman.

        Problem is when they concede. Which they probably will

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I might prefer Richa and Siggy.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          That might be a great call, and a nice way to be different. Expensive though.

    2. baps hunter

      I have started to consider that also. Odds for cs in first match 11/5. Watford for example has 13/10.

    Someone should put together a fantasy game for the FA Women's Super League.

    The season runs from from March until October which is perfect for fpl addicts that need something to tie em over during the summer deadzone instead of the Eliteserien.

        It would be great for Arsenal fans as it would give em something to be proud of for a change. 😉

        No Man United in that league which would be probably be a good thing for me to make sure of no chance of fpl fan bias.

    What to do with the extra 0.5?

    Ryan
    TAA, Robbo, Laporte, Digne
    Salah, Sterling, Siggy, Brooks
    King, Adams

    Button, Dendoncker, Kelly, Nketiah

    1. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Ryan to Fabianski.
      Save points galore, plus West Ham's early fixtures look good for clean sheets.

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd upgrade Kelly to a sure starter. I've gone Fredericks for now.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Brooks to Zaha

    4. El Tel
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Laporte to Walker then Brooks to Fraser

  17. Bruce Lee
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Giroud surely essential if Chelsea don't get a new striker...

    1. Licky
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Tammy?

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        If Chelsea play 1 up top then surely Giroud (wc winner) won't be benched for Tammy Abraham

        1. Licky
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          What has the WC got to do with it? Whichever player(s) the manager decides will play will play, that player could be Tammy.

          1. Bruce Lee
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Giroud is better than Tammy no question

            EL top scorer vs Championship bum

            If you pick the latter then you should go into management

            1. Licky
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 2 months ago

              ... and what about in the Premier League? Giroud is an inconsistent player, Abraham has potential, neither are perfect and neither are guaranteed to start. You'll have to wait and see who ends up favoured during pre-season.

          Winning the WC won't play a part in whether he starts.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Batshuayi - not too old not too young - scored 5 in 11 last season

  18. Mackans
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Thoughts on KDB? Isn’t he underpriced at 9.5?

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      If he can stay fit he will be an absolute bargain

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

      About the same value as Pogba if he gets around 200 points for the season like he did last two seasons he was fit.

  19. Game of Throw_ins
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    5-4-1 ? anyone? How's this?

    Ryan
    TAA | Robbo | Digne | Walker | AWB
    Salah | Sterling | Zaha | Siggy
    King

    Bench: Button, 4.5x3

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      If King doesn’t start then you will only have 10 playing.

      1. Game of Throw_ins
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Fair point. But lets say I replace King with Deulofeu/ Jota do u like this 5-4-1 structure ?

    2. Carlton P
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Like it. Would defo go Coleman over AWB and I’m leaning towards Delf over King...but then again I’ve got Fraser

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not bad at all

      I'd go VVD and get a keeper - probs Fab. Ryan as set and forget just doesn't convince me at all. You'll comfortably get back any points deficit with saves and probable cs

    Arnies agent is a right idiot judging by that statement on sky sports. Having a brother as an agent is a terrible idea.

    Would you rather:

    A) Robbo + TAA + Kelly + Rico
    B) Robbo + VVD + 4.5 def + Kelly
    C) TAA + VVD + 4.5 def + Kelly

    Might be worth mentioning that in any case the non pool defenders above will be on bench (3-5-2).

    Thanks

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

      A for me

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        Thanks

    2. Robin Cook
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      For me TAA is a must. Also got VVD in my team for now. I'll also have an eye on Gomez, though, as I think he will partner VVD and be a cheaper option.

  24. The Royal Robin
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    What formation are you planning on going with?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      532 edging towards 442 will probs end on 352

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Lol. I’m at least going with 4 at the back. Currently on a 532 with two fodder albeit playing midfielders on the bench.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      3-5-2 atm

      1. Carlton P
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        How? Why?
        TAA, Robbo, Digne, Coleman haven’t left my team

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          I have the first 3 atm + two 4.0 defs

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

      433 seems the best atm for what I’m looking for

    4. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Still depends on a lot of key signings like Everton striker, West Ham striker, Diop etc. Also pre-season to see how teams line up, and hopefully answer the Mendy/Zinchenko problem.

      But 442 is looking the most balanced at the moment given the players available. Robertson and TAA have changed the game.

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Who are the 3rd and 4th midfielders in that 442 out of interest?

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Siggy looking an important player for those fixtures. Him atm.

          Last spot keeps changing. It could be El Ghazi, Trossard, Anderson, Fraser, Pogba. Depends what I end up spending on the strikers, and what happens in the market.

    5. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      442 currently

      Debating 531 & 433

    6. Licky
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      3-4-3/4-4-2 depending on fixtures.

    7. Jimmy Boy
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      3-5-2. Was on 3-4-3 but noticed a lot of 6.5m mids that interested me more than Jota to start the season

    8. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      5-2-3 to start

      Big 6 at the back with added Kane Sterling Vardy/KdB - the mid level mids just don't convince me apart from Siggy.

      Once you roll a week it's a surprisingly flexible system which can be 4-4-2 or 5-3-2. I can get almost anywhere rolling week 1 and taking hit in 3 if necessary.

      The idea is to stay true at the back and think midterm value there and mix up my front 5. The back 6 will have City Pool Spurs Chelsea Everton I think so not gambling on double ups too much

    9. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      4-4-2 or 5-4-1

  25. MFPL
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Which option?

    A) Kane, Ryan and Ake
    B) Vardy, Ederson and Trippier

    1. Carlton P
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Tough call. I would say B as I think Vardy is better value than Kane
      Any plans for Son when he’s back?

    2. El Tel
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A

    4. Robin Cook
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A

  26. Carlton P
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Currently on this.
    Should I go Ederson + Bilva over Heaton + KDB?
    Heaton / Button
    Robbo / TAA / Digne / Coleman / Kelly
    Salah / KDB / Siggy / Fraser / fodder
    Vardy / Delf / fodder

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

      Heaton and KDB

      1. Carlton P
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Cheers. Think KDB could have a massive season and I see no reason why Deulofeu won’t match/improve on last season

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I prefer this too, monitor KdB fitness

  27. KAPTAIN KANE

    Who's your favourite defender for 4.5?

    1. Carlton P
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Diop
      Dunk
      Lascalles

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

      Fredericks

    3. El Tel
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Smith

    4. Woodpusher64
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I've got Diop holding that spot at the moment. Bench though.

    5. Robin Cook
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Diop

  28. POLSKA GOLA
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Ayoze Perez to Leicester. Does anyone know if Rogers has a history of playing two up front?

    1. Licky
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      SAS

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He's the new shinji

  29. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Anyone else thinking Perez to Leicester ruins vardys quite a bit? Maybe better to get Perez if he is a starter and possibly oop as well

    1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Appeal*

    2. Licky
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He might play off Vardy up top, I don't think he displaces Vardy outright.

      1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Not replace him but share his points? A bit like if zaha went to arsenal his appeal would be lowered due to lacazette and auba playing with him

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          I’m looking at Zaha because he is going to arsenal but additionally there are plenty of mids at the same price point

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Something to consider, I’m curious if anyone knows if Rogers has previously used two up front

      1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        When at Liverpool it may have been 4-3-3 with Sterling Sturridge Suarez. Will be keeping an eye on demari gray to see if he could be like Sterling at liverpool for rodgers fpl points wise

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Good point, maybe pre-season can shes some light, otherwise I’d stay away from their attackers but monitor closely

    4. Jimmy Boy
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      More likely to reduce popularity of Maddison I'd say

      1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Probably. just think he ain't that good of a player aswell to help them but a good fpl option at 6.5m midfielder

    5. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Perez could easily play wide.

      Leicester's weak spot has been the inside forward all of last season. Barnes and Gray had horrible conversion rates, and still too young imo. Perez could be great there.

      He was playing wide right of Rondon in a 343 and doing really well.

      1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I think if he's a starter as an oop it would be daft to not get him. Kind of the same as Ritchie as well

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          I agree that they would be good value over the season. But with those fixtures, I'm happy to wait.

  30. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Not seeing the vardy appeal tbh

    9 mil when you can get an additional 6mil defender and further strengthen midfield

    Fixture aren’t great either

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      'Fixtures aren't great' is the sort of situation Vardy thrives on

    2. Gringo Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Perez is not a central striker, if Leicester sign Tielemans they will be scoring machine

    3. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Good price point though. That's how I am basing my team at the minute. Can upgrade to firmino/lacazette or downgrade to rashford/Wilson in season and he is a bit fixture proof . You can't lose goals scored points but you can lose clean sheet points

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I do agree the price point is a good placer for flexibility

        Just not sure if he’s going reach the same level as last year or the year before
