Which budget FPL options caught the eye in Gameweek 1?

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.

    Is it viable to start dendonk most weeks?

    He seems under priced by 1m and may be an alternative to McGinn

    For example, in my 352, one option I have next week would be Fraser and Wilson to dendonk and kane - and starting dendonk on a pretty regular basis.

    Thanks

      Yes, I'm happy to do so. He's basically an underpriced 5.5 attacking midfielder in the hole behind 2 excellent strikers.

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      I don’t see him coming close to McGinn in terms of attacking returns but you could get lucky. I don’t think he should be a starter.

      You are probably realistically looking at an 80% blank rate for Donkey, so if you can live with that then go for it.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I like those odds.

          • 7 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I reckon he'll do better than that. There's really nothing between him and Neves and Moutinho, both 1m more.

          1. Jarvish Scott Talent
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Returning attacking points in more than 8 games this season? Not sure myself. Possible I suppose.

            1. Andy_Social

              • 7 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              He got 2 goals in half a season, so 4 this season is realistic. In terms of assists, he's feeding Jimenez and Jota, so I do see returns there.

              1. Jarvish Scott Talent
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                He got no assists in that half a season though, so this seems a bit cherry-pickingish 😉 We'll see what happens I guess. Will be in absolutely everyone's team if he does start returning regularly.

                1. Andy_Social
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  FPL had him as a defender - he started there, moved up the defensive midfield, then midfield and finally attacking midfield. If the boss has settled on sticking him in the hole for the season, I think his returns will reflect that.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 24 days ago

        Could well be the key to a third premium in the team if Donck shows enough to be a 4th mid.

      3. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        It's a no from me.

        Perfect bench fodder though

      4. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 24 days ago

        I’d say so.

        It’s wait and see on McGinn and AV generally. It was a mixed bag for me with attacking threat petering out as the game went on.

      5. Big Sum
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Most of the weeks no, probably some 4.5 defenders will outscore him

      6. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Wolves will struggle with the heavy fixture schedule and not be as good as they were last season, so i sense a few less goals and less clean sheets generally.

        On that basis I can’t see Dendoncker being worth a place in my starting 11.

        Great bench fodder in a 523 for me and if he rises in price I will probably cash in on him.

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

          In a 5-2-3 he's a benchie for sure. I start him in a 4-4-2 to enable a midfield with SS+Kev and 2 decent strikers. Decisions need to be based on the whole picture, i.e. your squad and strategy.

            Team ?

              • 7 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Me?

              Pickford
              TAA, VVD, Digne, Keane
              Salah, Sterling, DeBruyne, Dendonker
              Jimenez, Jota

          2. Hotdogs for Tea

            • 4 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            that is why I have gone 523, it means my starting 11 is set and I can cover injury with one of 3 mids at 4.5.

            I became fed up having to play 1 or 2 dodgy 4.5 mids or defenders in the past, so now my money is spread and my cheapest starters are Lloris, Coleman & AWB

      Nice to see price rises kicking in at last!

    5. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      So does anybody understand price changes? e.g.
      Rashford 931k owners GW1. Net transfers +189k. 189/931 = 20% and rose
      Origi 165k owners GW1. Net ransfers +127k. 127/165 = 77% and didn't

      1. james 101
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Wildcards?

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Think Rashford would be more likely on a wc than Origi, so makes even less sense

      2. Burger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Mark owns Rash, and not Origi - there problem solved.

      3. Greek Flair
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        it isn't just done on maths and %,

        supposedly there are people in FPL towers who try to be logical about it as well, knowing Origi isn't a long term starter

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 24 days ago

          think this is clear evidence thats the case tbh

        2. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I don’t have an issue with price changes and their unpredictability overall but if that’s true it makes it quite subjective which I find quite unfair.

          1. AmeliesDad
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            As annoying as it is for those of us in the know, I think it's better overall than there being a set formula.

        3. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I've never heard that (logical), but you may be right.
          Seems harder to understand every year

      4. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Only price falls work on % . Price rises are based on NTI passing a threshold - pure volume.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 24 days ago

          interesting. why dyou reckon this is?

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            It’s fairer for the owners of a 100k owned player to need 10k transfers out to drop 0.1m, as it is for a 10k owned player to suffer 1k transfers out.

            Price rises is an equal playing field no matter the current ownership.

            1. EMBOLOFAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              thanks

        • 10 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Price rises don't take ownership into account. At a point in time daily, if their net transfers in reach a certain threshold it triggers the price rise. Currently the threshold is estimated somewhere between 100k and 140k - and this changes based on active players. I'd guess Rashford hit this threshold whereas Origi hasn't yet.

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Ok cheers. Very fine line then between say Martial and Origi

          1. Pasqualinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Yep. Extra complication is not all transfers count. New teams and Wildcarders bringing people in don't count towards a price rise (or so the clever people who run the price websites say). So if 27k of Origi's 127k are new teams/WCs then he's only reached 100k of NTI. So you can never really look at absolute transfers in/out to get an accurate reading of the rise threshold. So there will be surprises.

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Fair enough. Not sure why I've never read about diffs btw falls/rises before

                3 months, 24 days ago

                There’s a lot of discussion about it on the FISO forum.

                If you're bored or obsessive (I was both) then take a read of this:

                http://www.fiso.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=128052

                The FISO guys were the ones that originally (and painstakingly) worked out the formula to a certain extent in the noughties. Since then it's gone through a number of changes so don't take everything you read on here as gospel, as there's a good chance it may not be relevant any more. But it gives you the gist. Sites like Fantasy Football Fix and FPLStatistics have taken these findings to a new level, but it all started with the FISO guys.

          isn’t the threshold driven or dictated by ownership though ?

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            No, just price falls is my understanding.

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              i find it strange in the past that someone like Salah can get 500k (or some other huge number) incoming transfers and not rise yet another player gets 10k and does rise.

              The incoming transfers that trigger rises are never equal from player to player, and higher owned players do seem to need more transfers to rise than lower owned players, generally ?

              maybe it’s also to do with original price too, or more likely a mixture of everything

              i have tracked it in the past but now as a casual i cba

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Are you sure? Hasn’t it been when a flag has been removed or the player has risen once already?

                I’m sure FPL do have some manual intervention though.

                1. Hotdogs for Tea
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  i am not sure anymore, but there does seem to be correlations with higher thresholds for higher owner players - but I am more convinced that FPL use judgement quite a lot.

      6. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        who knows what the criteria is, maybe some players that were lowly priced in the first place have an easier route to a price rise if FPL towers think they got it wrong ? ... we just don’t know and it is good that we have such uncertainty imho

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I don't think the uncertainty adds anything to the game, but yep who knows exactly

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            i am finding it adds heaps to the Norwegian game

      7. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Martial around 150K in

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          He had around 133k net transfers in this morning vs Origi's 127k.
          So the threshold perspective for rises does sort of make sense, even if can't actually calculate it

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Got ya

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Origi not risen yet, 133k ish net transfers in, same as Martial for his rise 😉

            let’s see what happens tomorrow

    6. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Should I do Wood fo Pukki or wait and see more from both?

      I think Pukki has a potential to do well this season but I actually think Newcastle is quite a good team defensively (can’t say the same about their attack), playing with 5 at the back when defending and midfielders are quite defensive minded as well. Also worried about Drmic limiting Pukki’s game time.

      On the other hand Wood seemed terrible in terms of fpl prospects vs Southampton and Arsenal wasn’t as bad as expected defensively despite playing against Newcastle so it’s a difficult decision for me.

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 24 days ago

        so why didnt you pick pukki before gw1

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Because ai thought Wood could do well against Southampton but he was terrible (from fpl perspective). And as I said I have reservations about Pukki’s next fixture as well, the factor behind the change in my plan is Wood, not Pukki.

          1. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Not ai, “I”.

          2. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 24 days ago

            so after 90mins youve radically changed your mind on both of these players? going to be a long season

            1. Klaren
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              As I said I haven’t changed my mind on Pukki, but changed my mind on Wood, his stats and more importantly his heatmap wasn’t promising at all, signicantly worse than last year average and there is no indication that he’ll improve in the short term with more difficult fixtures to come.

              And yes, it is a long season for everyone, 35 FTs + 2 wildcards.

              1. EMBOLOFAN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 24 days ago

                hes playing in same system as last year, week on week heatmaps and underlying stats will vary massively. richarlison vs palace one example of many

      What to do with Trossard?

      1. Greek Flair
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        hold for one more week

      2. NULL-X-VOID
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Monitor for a week then take a decision. A lot of speculation is that he'll start GW2

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Surprised if this is true - I would have thought he wouldn't want to change a winning team.

          1. NULL-X-VOID
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Well it's just GW1, I personally think trossard if played, can prove to be one of top differentials for the pre WC GWs if enough mangers dump him after the GW1 absence.

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

            Why not? If you had a winning team and had an option to play Neymar or Mbappe in the next match, would you stick with your winning team?

            1. Jarvish Scott Talent
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              If Trossard was Neymar or Mbappe I would agree.

              The Neymar and Mbappe examples were extreme examples to make a point.

              The point is that just because you won your last match doesn't mean that you exclude a star player from coming in to your team.

              Potter is also on record as saying that he wanted his debut to be a home game.

        He’d have to haul for me to want to keep him.

        I underestimated the Potter wheel effect. I’m not too interested in players who may be in and out. I don’t see how that will be clarified in a week. The range of options there and Potter proactive approach mean 90 minutes appearances are very chancy.

        Buendia is where I’m looking. Made a mistake I believe and moving on.

      Wow I checked this morning and the price rise stats on the FPL stats site were still same as last night.

      Bosh, I look now and they rose quite a few

      Price rises changing at random time of day and not being able to see whether other players TV and transfers has changed will definitely mix things. I like it! Happy I kept 1m ITB.

        Me too. Some people seem to dislike it but I'm glad rivals can no longer see if I've made a transfer and try to guess what I've done based on my TV.

          Today was the first time that price changes occurred this season. It could be that they will happen every day at the same hour.

            Possible - could be a social media thing with people getting alerts over breakfast rather than in the middle of the night. I suspect though it was a glitch in line with the glitchy nature of the FPL website/App since the season started.

          Is this true? Random times, I'm not a fan of that.

          I also enjoyed looking at what rivals were doing, it was part of the fun analysis. But I do also see the flip side appeal of being blind on that one. I prefer the former though.

      It's pretty good right?

          just sacrifice 0.5M ... so your team is kind of 99.5M ... don't know whether it's a good strategy btw

            Making a transfer before the Liverpool game is pretty stupid to be honest, Salah rolls his ankle and its carnage for those that did

              4pt hits aren't the end of the world you know.

              1. SADIO SANÉ
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Tell that to people that ripped their team up to get Sterling if they could have just done Salah -> Sterling

                  • 4 Years

                  Most seemed to have both anyways. Has anyone actually ripped their team up alresdy (without wc)?

                  1. SADIO SANÉ
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 24 days ago

                    He went up in price so unless people have done Salah -> Sterling (they haven't) then yes they have

                    1. Burger
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 24 days ago

                      89k Mane sellers, Aguero 85k, Kane 60k, could easily be those contributing and a 4pt hit?

                      1. SADIO SANÉ
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 24 days ago

                        Well a 4 point hit is enough when they might want Kane next week (esp if Salah is injured)

            2. Twisted Saltergater

          He was due to go up this week regardless, and we all know how unpredictable price changes are this early in the season. So question what stopped you from making the trade?

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Honestly, I'm not completely risk averse like many on here - I would have done it tonight after he Liverpool game (which is logical) - the fact Ederson/Sterling hadn't gone up gave me a lot of confidence he wouldn't yet - no regret just annoying

          I'd start Barkley over Stones. Think Man City - Spurs will be a high scoring game.

            Pope can be the highest scoring 4.5 GK at the end of the season - keep.

            Barring injuries.

        Best Milivojevic replacements?

        Ideally I’ll hold transfer for another week but that was the one spot I wasn’t comfortable with going into gw1 so planning ahead
        Midfield is Salah kdb Milivojevic McGinn Perez

          Why did you pick him if you plan on selling after one blank?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            I had Zaha in my team then changed to Mili the day of deadline
            As I said i wasn’t that comfortable and didn’t want to downgrade elsewhere for 7.5m mid. Maybe that was the issue

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          The very nature of points Milli is bringing (set pieces mostly) means that you èither keep him all season or dont bother at all.
          Form got nothing to do in his case.

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Fair point. It’s more tough fixtures / others with better fixtures coming up. Not a reaction just to his blank

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              begs the question why you chose him initially

                Haha still haven’t answered who are the best replacements
                Still may keep him but in case not would like to plan ahead
                I get your point, didn’t pay enough attention to their fixtures which look tough

        Should I bring in Mcginn or Trezeguet?

        Mcginn looks a safer option and will tick over with points nicely but Trezeguet looked decent and could have explosive weeks

          Why dont you make this decision after Villa's next game.

          1. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Agree, i'm waiting to see what happens in GW2. For example, if ManU are the real deal and Martial n Rash are season keepers, against a Wolves team who played midweek should give us some indicators no?

            Back to the point though, McGinn is on my radar for sure. Thinking of swapping out Moura and reinvest or Fraser (will wait to see what Fraser does vs Villa)

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years

          McGinn, simply because I see a bit of rotation with Trezeguet, El Ghazi and Jota.

        3. 'Broadsword Calling Da…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          1. Atters
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Want to take Trossard out. He may play the next game but he's no doubt a rotation risk every other week hearing potters comments. Will probably hold for one more week

        4. EMBOLOFAN

            Pukki - apparently he is the next best thing since sliced bread and he plays for a team which shares nickname with Brazil.
            Oh and Jari Litmanen....

            What can possibly go wrong ?

            What time did the price changes occur?

            The main problem with taking away the ability to see rivals transfers is that (in my opinion), it allowed lots of spoofing. You knew your opponents are looking, so you could employ small tactics to get into their heads, and I could reel of other stuff, but overall, having the sight, really added to the game. I'm marking this down as a loss and negative change to the game.

                How did you see who they had out in before?

                  You couldn't see who they had per-se, but you could work out from the transfer values and subsequent prices rises and falls who they had (mostly). But again, you knew your rival was doing the same, so you could sometimes spoof what you were doing...as i say many tactics to deploy, but this is all gone now. Shame

                Couldnt care less about what my rivals are doing.

              So, people sort of work out around 130K transfer in to increase the price? Mind that Ederson, Sterling, De Gea & Rashford could get double rise then ... what? GW1?

                      Ask Mr Potter - I haven't a clue who will play, so I'm avoiding Brighton for the time being. Locadia might even be the answer...

                      Maupay. Brighton

                      Brighton are the kind of team to leave a £20m striker on the bench for long

                    Early season WC couldn't be avoided. Managed to catch Martial price rise.

                    Would appreciate some needed advice on the below;

                    Adrian (Norris)
                    Mina, Wan-Bissaka, VVD, Zinchenko (Rico)
                    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Martial (Dedoncker)
                    Pukki, Wesley (Greenwood)

                    1.5m ITB - Earmarked to bring in Robertson or TAA after Adrian has run his course.

                    Thanks

                      what was your team before the wildy? surprised you needed to after just one week.

                        I was rather silly and went for a one week punt on only Tottenham, Liverpool, Bournemouth & Watford player due to their plum home fixtures. Relatively new to FPL and in the last two years wasted the first wildcard. So thought it would be a good idea to use it first week as FH almost....

                        Didn't expect Man City to decimate West Ham.

                        Lloris

                        Kane, Wilson, Deulofeu
