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 are people's thoughts on 5 at the back??

    Could get you something like:

    Pickford
    Robertson, VVD, Laporte, Mendy, Digne
    Salah, Sterling, Zaha/Milo
    King, Jota

    Button, Dendoncker, 4.5

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      It's very popular on here. Personally, 4 is enough for me.

    2. Eat my goal!

      Are city fixtures all that

      Better of having Chelsea than city imo

    3. El Tel
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I like it. Like my team below

    4. Nomar

      7 months, 24 days ago

      More than one way to skin a cat.

      You can’t have a load of premium strikers and premium defenders, so something has to give......

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Have something similar

      Mendy nailed might tempt me to double City at the back but prefer KdB and Sterling combo instead. I'm trying to limit doubles at the back.

      My third premium up front is Kane and not Mo - that may not be what you like - gets me to 5-2-3 but thats really just a trick of Mo and Sterling being oop

      1. The Danger Zone!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I was looking at 5 at back but felt didn't like the bench.
        Went 4-4-2 and now have a solid 4.5 Def on bench.

  2. El Tel
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Current team. Any thoughts?

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA Trippier Walker VVD Digne
    Salah KDB Fraser (Dendonker + Hayden)
    Kane King (Xande)

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Walker for a lol and upgrade your hayden

    2. Xhaka Kahn't
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Like the Kane pick for GW1

  3. Bad Kompany
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Everyone talking about the shocking penalty but no one talking about Neville.

    Horrible tactics in the first half. England was much better in the 433.

    Also why didn’t White or even Parris take the pen. I know Parris missed in the game before but at least it was a decent penalty.

  4. YEAH PITCH!
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Thoughts please.
    Triple Liverpool defense?

    Then go for Sterling/De Bruyne/ Kane as premiums.

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Was considering it but Liverpool first two fixtures are much better than city’s

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Good point.

    2. Xhaka Kahn't
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Bold. I've not got the stones to go Salahless for NOR though

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I can understand that. I see people speculating he won't play due to AFCON etc. But we all know how these rumours go.

    3. Jimmy Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Double is as far as I'll go. As strong as Liverpool are, one freak moment could ruin your whole GW

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 24 days ago

        That is true. Which two did you opt for?

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Robbo and TAA at the moment. If I find myself in real need of 0.5m I'll swap one for van Dijk. If Gomez or Matip emerge as a nailed option I'll also be interested by them.

    4. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Thinking about it. Every man and his dog has Sterling, but KdB might match Salah/Mane and could be upgraded.

      Yes, it sounds bold first, but template has 2x Pool anyway. So is it actually?

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 24 days ago

        True. What have you gone for?

      2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        KDB is this years Mane 9.5m.
        Mane served me well last year - he was obviously way under-priced then and there is value with KDB now too.

    5. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I will most likely go treble pool defence (can't get away from it with those fixtures)
      I plan to keep the liverpool treble defence for 5 gameweeks - gamble on a tight Arsenal game.
      Phase out some/all of the Bournmouth lads in gw3

      4-3-3 0 itb

      Pickford (button)

      VVD-Robertson-TAA-Laporte-(Kelly)

      Fraser-Sigurdsson-KDB-(Dendocker-Tetley)

      Wilson-King-Kane

    6. EgyptianKing
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I considered it for some moments, I had the following idea:

      Ryan
      Walker, Coleman, TAA, Robbo, VVD
      Djenepo, Siggy, KDB, Sterling
      Kane

      I have not the balls to go with no Salah or Mane for the first GWs I think...

  5. Jimmy Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Is Dawson a threat to Cathcart? Who is now the Watford defender of choice, if there is such a thing?

    1. Ricky - it doesn't tak…
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Looking at cathcarts minutes last season it looks like he two will be the centre back pairing

    2. YEAH PITCH!
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I would like to know this too.

  6. Pirlø's Pen

    First draft, would appreciate some feedback. Somewhat unorthodox but I like it.

    Heaton
    Robertson | Alexander-Arnold | Laporte | Digne | Coleman
    Salah (C) | Sterling (Vc) | Sigurdsson | Zaha
    King

    4.0 | Denconcker | Wickham | Greenwood

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Is Everton going to keep clean sheets?

      1. YEAH PITCH!
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I don't think they will.

  7. Scotty B
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    What do you think?

    Ederson
    Coleman Ake VVD Laporte Robbo
    Sterling Siggy Mane
    King Wilson

    Norris Dendonker Guendouzi Nketia

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Like it but Laporte to azpi

      Then VVD or Coleman to TAA or Digne

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Ederson to Lloris buys you Digne and a slot for KdB later on. Spurs in their new stadium could be cs monsters again and Lloris is right up there on saves anyway

      • 4 Years

      You'd cracked it yesterday Scotty. I'd forget about it now until August. Not much point changing your team 10 times a day until then and putting us through the associated agony.

  8. TallestJohn

    Was it last season or 2016-17 where lots of people went 5 at the back early on? And what was the context behind it? I feel like it was 16-17 for Alonso etc. but Chelsea started the season with 4 at the back.

    1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I remember one year there double chelsea and double Man United was common place.
      Back in the days of Fabio, Vidic, Terry, Ivanovic etc.
      I can't recall the five at the back though.

  9. paulfantham

    Is Ndombele a defensive midfielder?

    1. YEAH PITCH!
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Yes. Think Dembele esque.

      1. paulfantham
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks, that’s a no to having him in my team then

    2. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Defensive yes. but also completed more than 20 more dribbles than Son last season. He likes to dribble past players in the cm position to create space for runners.

  10. Kante FC
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    How will Leicester line up now they are getting Ayoze Perez? Will this hinder Maddison’s game time?

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Think he’ll come in for Barnes.

      He won’t be replacing Maddison

    2. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      this is an interesting one. Is Vardy more of a threat from Perez? or will they play both Maddison and Perez behind vardy?

      1. Licky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Maybe we'll see the return of the 4-4-2 diamond?

    3. 16ShimiC16
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Was literally about to post the same thing as a current Maddison owner, hopefully it enhances his output rather than decrease it !

    4. Jb_lcfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Rodgers played Maddison as more of a No.8 last season. Definitely won't be him losing out. Depends on formation really - there's potential for a great 3-5-2 from Leicester if Tielemans joins. My guess is that Perez won't be automatic first choice

    5. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Shame... cant see him being a regular there. Was a good option at Newcastle.

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        You don’t think he’ll be able to overtake Barnes who can’t hit a barn door

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Barnes is a left winger, Ayoze is not.

    6. skilldave
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Rumours that Maddison might go to Man Utd

  11. Sam feasts
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Think ive nailed it

    Fab /Button

    Mendy / Digne / VVD / TAA /Aarons

    Maddison / Salah / B Silva / Dendonk / Norwood

    Jota / King / Kane

    Only issue is if Sterling starts scoring for fun, but hopefully Silva assists him.

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Whenever I think about how I'm going for KDB over Sterling I break out in a cold sweat

  12. Jay Jay Okocha
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Cycling through various combinations:

    A) Walker, Digne, Siggy
    B) Laporte, Coleman, Siggy
    C) Walker, 4.5 def, KDB

    Currently on A, but would love to squeeze in KDB somehow. Not sure if it makes sense if the cost is sacrificing all Everton coverage with those lovely fixtures, however. Have Sterling too, FWIW.

  13. Bad Kompany
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Any tielemans transfer news?

    What club is the favorite to sign him?

    1. Jb_lcfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Leicester... (Pretty please.)

  14. Jimmy Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    An evening's tinkering done. Couple of punts in midfield, and deviating from the template on here by going for Aubameyang.

    Ryan
    Digne - TAA - Robbo
    Salah - Siggy - KDB - Yarmolenko - McGinn
    Auba - King

    Fodder Bench

  15. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    I always like a 3-5-2 formation, so would appreciate your thoughts on this?

    Ryan
    TAA VVD Coleman
    Salah KDB Siggy Zaha Fraser
    Vardy King

    Bench : usual bunch of nobodies.

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Looks good for now

    2. Zilla
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I prefer having somone like Laporte over Fraser and switch to 442.

  16. Giggs Boson.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Wan Bissaka has already risen to 34.1%. Manchester United players are super volatile in the market. A strong performance or two and their prices will rocket.

    It might be worth structuring your team to bring in players like Rashford, Pogba, or Daniel James a bit more easily...

    1. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Cant be scared of other fantasy managers. FPL is a game against yourself. I trust Utd will still be bad next season

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Pogba is interesting. Im still strongly considering him over KDB.. Just hard to find a good use for the extra 1m. Not sure its worth it to get Vardy over Wilson for instance.

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Doubt pogba stays

    3. Sif
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Given their prices I'm not sure too much forward planning is needed should they hit form

    4. Jafalad
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Staggering. Very little attacking returns and plays for a team that is consumed in uncertainty. Why would you have him ahead of the LIV ds?

      1. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah exactly. The Man U effect in action.

    5. noquarternt
      • 4 Years

      Yeah better get ready to -8 3 Man U players in...

    What’s the thinking behind the best 4.5 keeper? Not a lot to choose from.

    1. Zilla
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Hopefully Henderson when he is loaned.

    2. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      He's not in the game yet, but Dean Henderson could be great. I assume FPL are waiting to see where he'll be playing before pricing him, but at Sheffield he should be 4.5m.

    3. Bambi
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Heaton. season keeper potentially. Burnley first choice keeper should really be 5.0

    4. Harrypottermus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Ryan + Button are the safest cheapest pairing as Brighton have a good start and you are covered for an injury to your 4.5 keeper.

    5. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      For me 5m is minimal for me, Fabianski is a save monster, tempted by him, but currently I do have Ederson

    6. Sif
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Heaton & Pope have both had excellent seasons in the past & Burnley's tactics encourage savable shots. The first half of lasts season took a bit hit from the Europa League but 2nd half they were top 6 form.

      Hart will be gone so it's Heaton (who has yet to sign a new deal) v Pope.
      It should be clear which will be starting come GW1 and they will be the best 4.5m I'd bet a large amount on it.

    7. Ser Davos
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Think the Ryan Button combo is a mechanical-head-in-sand-due-to-fixtures selection when in reality they're likely to remind us why we shouldn't have touched with a barge pole in the doubles despite that clean sheet at Molineux.

      Ederson, Heaton or Henderson are my go tos with half an eye on Lloris.

      The keeper situation is SO cloudy, that you are best off with Ryan and Button. I am normally a serial rotator, but that's not possible, this year.

    Mane v Salah debate is a close one isn't it particularly with the 1m difference?

    People say Salah has more captain potential so does that mean you wouldn't captain Mane?

    Both are pretty equal imo and just as dangerous. Salah played more mins and was in pens when Milner wasn't on the pitch yet Mane still matched him for goals and PPG

    1. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Salah all the way...

    2. yakirh

      Easier to downgrade Salah to Mane than upgrading Mane to Salah

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Can't say I agree. Mane needed to be at least 1.5m cheaper for me to consider him. At alone 1m more Salah is an easy choice.

      I was thinking it wasn't close.
      Not big enough gap in price to not go for Salah.

    I know Newcastle defied the odds in the 11-12 season, but this doesn't bode well.

    Ritchie/Lascelle seemingly the only options that aren't anywhere near the watchlist.

      Don’t touch

      1. Ser Davos

        If they bring in a Moyes or an Allardyce then how toxic will that opener v Arsenal be?

  20. Dr Funk

    Siggy and Richarlison double up?

    Those fixtures are soooooo good.

    1. Ser Davos

      Not the worst shout and hadn't considered tbh *scratches chin*. Could be better than Bilva whom I'm still unsure on in FPL terms.

    Seen a few wondering about the big at the back policy. My two cents is that the landscape and context of each season is different.

    I started with a big back line several years ago with Bosingwa at 5.5 and Baines at 8 and made one of my best starts to a season. I think its a great to garner points until the dust settles and the midpark options emerge.

      I think the hardest thing for most people this season will be seeing premium Mids and Forwards get one or two big hauls and resist the urge not to cash in on Premium defenders despite them being better and more consistent in the long run.

    I can't help feeling that those with their daily tinkering of their teams are also lessening their chances of success in FPL. Too much overthinking when normally your original decisions were the correct ones.
    Auto pick your team, leave it and watch the tennis, crick and golf.

      Lot of painful truth to this I fear

      Hopefully you are right.......

      I have still not done my first draft yet. 🙂

        Read the article with last season's winner about his approach to the game in pre-season. He was very relaxed about it all.

  23. FootyFan

    What do you reckon?

    A) Sigurdsson + Digne

    Or

    B) Smith + KDB

    1. Steiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A

  24. The Royal Robin

    Rashford could be a superb differential and an early bandwagon.

    1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Rashford could be a catastrophic disaster and an early funds loser.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        This is more likely

    2. Sif

      My fortune cookies said the same but had Deeney instead, my mate's said Lacazette

  25. Ser Davos

    Will Ederson be worth 1.5 over Henderson/Heaton? Really tricky question. Long term City cover whereas Laporte is that .5 extra.

    Charlie Taylor is 4.5 and Sheff Utd have attacking centre backs and a wing back at 4.5 (Baldock).

    1. The Danger Zone!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      I'm sitting with Ederson in team at moment. Thinking if need funds in a hurry can swap him down when know which cheap options are looking most promising.

  26. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    A) Coleman & Greenwood (Benched) 5-3-2
    B) Gibson (Benched) & Che Adams 4-3-3

    1. Ser Davos
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Coleman I think early doors. Even if the lad proves useless, he only needs a clean sheet or two and he'll have paid off his inclusion. More than doable with Gueye/Schneider/Zouma and them early fix.

    2. Sif
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      As a rule I never punt on players new to the league on GW1 so I'd go for A as Coleman is a known quantity plus fixtures.

    Ryan (Button)
    Digne - TAA - VVD (Kelly - Stearman)
    Zaha - Sigurdsson - Salah - Sterling (Dendoncker)
    Wilson - King (Greenwood)

    Where would you spend the last 1.0?

    1. Doubter2Believer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Upgrade Ryan to Pickford? More CS potential with Pickford and he is arguably a better penalty saver too

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I've been thinking about Pickford, but I'm not sure about going with double Everton def. Digne has attacking potential at least.

    2. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Wilson > Vardy

      1. TAT
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        That's a possibility. Wondering if it's better focusing on upgrading one of Kelly, Stearman or Ryan; but this will surely only be one of many drafts – several of which will feature Vardy for sure.

    Take 3. Decided to go for strength in depth. Rotation pairings. Potential OOP’s with future transfers in mind.

    Here goes.......

    Lloris

    TAA // Digne // Dawson (Watford)

    Salah // Bilva // Siggy // A. Perez (Leicester)

    Vardy // King // Deulofeu

    Leno // Djenepo // Christensen // Kelly

    Please rate, comment and destroy where necessary. I am however very happy with this!

    Do you think Trippier is nailed on? I like the way Spurs fixtures rotate with Newcastle’s

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope

      I don't even think he will be at the club come kick off

      1. Mané money

        Bunkers

        Vertongen should do it probably

    Who do you think will be on pens at Chelsea now that Hazard is out of the picture?

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Jorginho.

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Maybe so but if Frank has any since and he probably does he should restore Kante to his rightful place in front of the back 4 and that would mean that Jorginho may miss out.
