Pre-Season

Additional Chelsea players handed FPL prices

A whole host of Chelsea players have been added to the Fantasy Premier League price list.

Strikers Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi have both been involved heavily in the Blues’ pre-season campaign and Fantasy managers have been eagerly anticipating their price reveals.

With Olivier Giroud at £7.0m, the price makers at FPL towers have ensured there is no way of comparing Chelsea forwards on cost by bringing both Abraham and Batshuayi in at £7.0m as well.

It is still unclear which of the three centre-forwards is the standout forward for Chelsea thus far so Fantasy managers should keep tracking their minutes on the Pre-season Page.

Meanwhile, FPL have also announced three more Chelsea players in Mason Mount (£6.0m), Kenedy (£5.5m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.0m).

The future of the latter remains up in the air with Everton hoping to bring him back to Goodison Park after an impressive spell in 2018/19.

We recently published a Members’ article on Zouma’s importance to the Toffees which you can READ HERE.

Whether the £5.0m proves a price worth paying may depend on which he club he ends up comitting too.

If he returns to Everton then he will be much more assured of a start than he would be at Stamford Bridge.

Other additions include Aston Villa right-back Frederic Guilbert (£4.5m) and Liverpool forward Rhian Brewster (£4.5m).

    Serious question & I need serious answers

    Ryan
    TAA VVD Digne Laporte
    Salah Sterling Siggy Mili
    King DelBoy

    Or

    Ryan
    TAA VVD Digne WanB
    Salah Sterling Brooks Jorginho
    King Kane

    Ryan would become Burnley keeper once it's established who No1 is

    1. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years

      A) Laporte, Siggy, Mili, Del

      B) AWB, Brooks, Jorginho, Kane

        Kane needs to do a lot for B to win.

        1. Lebowski85
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          True. Also...if he isn't captained is he worth it?

        2. pumpkinhead
          • 5 Years

          Kane and Brooks having a break out year

        They don't tell the whole picture, but thanks

        1. pumpkinhead
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          The team is the exact same bar those 4 players. So it's pretty clear. Both cost you exactly 28.

          1. Lebowski85
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 13 days ago

            That is my usual format but I felt I needed to show how 3 premiums affected team balance

            1. pumpkinhead
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 13 days ago

              You do you fam

    2. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 13 days ago

      I’d go B but with Shaw over AWB and Deeney over King

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        A but not with Milli

      2. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        I assume 'Delboy' is Deulofeu, in which case he probs wouldn't want to double up on Watford.

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          My mistake, that one includes Kane rather than Deu I see

      3. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Love AWB but Shaw must have better odds of attacking returns and I’m doubting AWB will pick up defensive baps in sane way at United with different set up.

        King had a horrible record last season when Wilson was on the pitch. Deeney I’d take for equal pen chances and better odds of open play returns

        1. Lebowski85
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          Interesting about King. So what, he didn't score as much when Wilson was on the pitch

          2. pingissimus
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 13 days ago

            Got 4 goals (non pens) in about 28 matches with Wilson up top then 3 in about 7 when he wasn’t!!!

            Pretty much oop judging by heat maps.

            1. Lebowski85
              • 7 Years

              Intriguing

          Have you seen awb in preseason - absolute beast

          1. pumpkinhead
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 13 days ago

            Was great for CPL last year so I'm not surprised.

          2. pingissimus
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 13 days ago

            In attack? His final ball at Palace was very average - not a lot to aim at to be fair.

            Was a winger so should develop - just think Shaw is ahead on that front. Really don’t see defensive baps in a front foot team that doesn’t sit back. Palace drew teams onto them hence the tackle count

            1. Eat my goal!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 13 days ago

              I guess that’s fair to a degree but baps are awarded in all positions, if he makes the interceptions and the tackles as he was doing and is doing in preseason he’ll still accrue baps just whether he can exceed a goal scorer

              I see the odd assist in him though

    3. Lebowski85
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Cheers for all of your feedback.... interesting

    4. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Kane gives you more flexability imo but plenty of time to monitor, still early doors yet

      1. Lebowski85
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Yeah, if I need a premium forward I can swap easily. Otherwise it's Wildcard time

  2. Kimmich
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    B for me. I wouldn’t want to start with King and Deulofeu. Kane gives you flexibility to go anywhere bar Aguero. Plus he’s Kane and Villa could be a good tie.

    1. Lebowski85
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Cheers mate

    Views on this team please

    Need more man city? Too much spent at the back or forwards?

    lloris

    Trent/Robbo/zinchenko/digne/dunk

    Salah/siggy/Barkley/4.5/4.5

    Kane/king/haller

    1. slove
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      I would give Haller some time to settle in to assess him, particularly with Man City as the first game

      Defence looks good , especially if Dunk goes to Leicester - not 100% about Llloris , if Aurier becomes nailed then you have the Tottenham CS points for less cost plus some attacking potential. Also Lloris only kept 12 clean sheets last season.

  4. Canary_Kid
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    Looking to rotate 3 4.5 defenders, 2 of which will play each week. Currently looking at Bednarek, Dunk, Diop, Aarons, A. Smith, and Cathcart.

    What would your top 3 4.5 defenders be?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Diop, Dunk, and Cathcart for me.

    2. Bocaginge
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Balbuena, C Taylor, Guilbert
      All have great rotating early fixtures and offer attacking threat and clean sheet potential

  5. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    All this take of KSS teams has made me want it again

    Pope
    TAA VVD Digne Zinchenko
    Salah Sterling Tielemans Jorginho
    Kane King

    Just feels better than my sensible team?

    Pope
    TAA VVD Coleman Zinchenko
    Salah Sterling Fraser Moura
    Wilson Deulofeu

    1. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      I prefer your KSS team minus Jor

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Guess that's the point

    2. Destroyer of teams
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 13 days ago

      My team but with Wan B, don’t get the dislike for him and more nailed than Zinc. At least WanB has proved what he can do last season

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Zinchencko plays for man city

    3. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Just realised how similar it is to the team at the top

      1. Lebowski85
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Haha. It is indeed alot like mine.

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          Be much easier if there was a tempting 6.0 or 5.0 mid

    4. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Moura doesn’t add up to me. He has one good game then City away and then Son returns. Seems like a waste of an early transfer

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        True. Think it's the fear of that first spurs game. Kane must be the answer

        1. Lebowski85
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          I was dead against a premium striker to start but to get him in (or someone else) would require nothing less than a wildcard. It's just safer to start with him and go from there

    b) Fraser, Perez, Wilson

      B

      B player for player

    3. Lebowski85

      Over the season...B. A might do better for the first few though

    4. GanonTEK

      Yeah B even though I have 2 from A myself.

  11. dilksymatey
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    Hi guys,

    I've put together my first draft, any thoughts on it would be much appreciated!

    4.5 keeper
    TAA - Robbo - Stacey
    Salah - Sterling - Sane - Tielemans - Zaha
    Wesley - King

    Bench is as cheap as it gets.

  12. Cueboy88
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    7.0 seems expensive for Abraham. I thought he would be 6.5 or 6.0

    1. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Did you watch him in the championship last year? If he can perform to 75% of that I'd be happy at 7.0

      1. Cueboy88
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Yes, but it's a big if. When you consider Giroud and Batshuayi are both 7.0

      2. pingissimus
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Yes but Patrick Bamford

    2. Ask Yourself
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      I thought he’d be 7 as he is likely first choice. Will be worth it if he gets pens

  13. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    Who is the best 4.5m keeper?

    1. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Who ever starts for Burn then Ryan

      1. Lebowski85
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        This

    2. Kimmich
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 13 days ago

      Gunn had a very decent points per game last season. I’d rank him higher than Ryan for sure.

      Pope/Heaton or Gunn.

      1. Lebowski85
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        I'm very interested to see how Southampton start. I reckon they could be the surprise team this year

        1. Kimmich
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 13 days ago

          I think they’ll do decent as well. Very good manager, fixtures aren’t the best initially but you never know. Happy to have Gunn and Adams in my team.

          1. Lebowski85
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 13 days ago

            They haven't lost anyone either for the first time in years so will start very settled and rested. I just can't see past those fixtures though....

            Redmond and Gunn I'm going to watch closely

        2. pingissimus
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 13 days ago

          Agreed

          We’ll know quite quickly given the fixture run. I suspect with a full preseason and time to run in his 4-2-2-2 Ralph will have them defensively much sounder.

      Does anyone have the figures for how many games Deu blanked in last time?

      Given he only scored against Huddersfield Cardiff WH and perhaps one other it must be a few.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Better than I expected - suppose he missed more games than I realised. Class player.

      2. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 13 days ago

        Nice. But think worth having one of Wilson or vardy for flexibility

        Which one, I don't know

        1. @fpl_phenom
          • 5 Years

          cant afford and unwilling to downgrade elsewhere

  17. Studini

    Quick question (have 3 x Liverpool + Coleman):

    Perez + Alonso or Siggy + KWP/AMN/Zouma?

  18. Rigid Digit
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 13 days ago

    Tammy is 7.0 - Heller is 7.5.
    Save the 0.5 and go for Tammy or go for the potential in Haller
    (Tammy didn't pull up many trees at Swansea recently)

    1. Scott Talent RIP EJ
      • 4 Years

      He hasn't been at Swansea for a good while. He's strengthened and matured a bit as a player . Whether good enough for the EPL remains to be seen.
