How Aubameyang compares to other FPL midfielders after positional change

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) will be a midfielder in Fantasy Premier League next season following the game’s relaunch.

The move comes about following Aubameyang’s half-season spell on the left flank, with Mikel Arteta’s appointment as Arsenal manager in December signalling a change of role for the Gabon international in the Gunners’ attack.

The reclassification further swells the premium options available to us in the middle of the park, with Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) also making the move to ‘FPL midfielder’ and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) and Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) rising considerably in price.

How does Aubameyang compare with the other heavy hitters after his positional switch, then?

    Salah & Ings for GW1 and then a swap for KDB & Martial for GW2 onwards, any thoughts? I already have TAA & Greenwood and no City players.

      I had the same subs in mind, but could potentially keep Ings depending on form

    Auba is about 1.0M overpriced. He would have been a steal at 10.5, perfect at 11.0, high at 11.5, but too expensive at 12.0

    Basically, at 12.0 you gotta have a dynamic perma-captain type player.

      Agree, tempting early fixtures though.. keep for a couple GW then switch to Sterling,salah or Mane?
