From John Lundstram (£4.0m) to Mason Greenwood (£4.5m) and everyone in between, there was almost as much pre-season discussion about budget Fantasy options as there was regarding premium assets.
Those heavy hitters excelled in Gameweek 1, with five of the six £10.0m+ Fantasy options all delivering returns for their owners.
Seven of the eight £8.0m+ Fantasy Premier League forwards who played this weekend banked at least one goal or assist, while the five £8.5m+ midfielders who started in Gameweek 1 all delivered too.
As Fantasy managers try to shoehorn as many expensive options into their squads, then, we need cut-price FPL assets more than ever.
With that in mind, we will assess the players in the bottom two price rungs of each position to see how they fared in the weekend just gone.
