Pre-Season

The best mid-price FPL forwards for 2020/21

While there was little to cheer among the budget forwards, there is a bit more to interest Fantasy Premier League managers when we step up a tier.

Our trawl through the mid-price FPL forwards covers the 25 assets who currently find themselves in the £6.0m-£7.5m bracket, with our look at the premium options to follow.

You can read our run-through of the best goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders via the links below.

‘BIG SIX’ BACK-UPS AND POSSIBLE STARTERS

We have opted to include the sole £7.5m-rated forward in this mid-price analysis as much of what we write of Tammy Abraham will also be true of Olivier Giroud (£7.0m).

Both players might be playing understudy to Timo Werner (£9.5m) for much of 2020/21 following the German attacker’s arrival in west London, although an injury to Christian Pulisic (£8.5m) could see Werner reprise the inside-left role he often played for RB Leipzig and open up a central spot for Abraham or Giroud in the early stages of the new season.

The final third of Abraham’s previous campaign was something of a non-event, with the Chelsea striker making only two starts in the final 13 Gameweeks as injury and Giroud’s form saw him reduced to bit-part player status.

Thirteen goals, five assists and 20 bonus points had arrived from Gameweeks 3 to 25, however, with Abraham starting all but one of Chelsea’s league fixtures over that run.

In total, the pair plundered 23 goals and seven assists between them in the Premier League in 2019/20 – which is a testimony to the Blues’ creativity, especially as Abraham was quite profligate following his early-season purple patch.

Pre-season will hopefully tell us whether Pulisic will be fit for Gameweek 1, whether Werner will initially be operating wide-left as a result and, finally, which – if any – of Giroud or Abraham could be leading the line on the opening weekend.

Whoever gets the nod could consequently be a decent differential for the appealing early fixtures but rotation and bench duty would appear to loom large beyond that point.

Michy Batshuayi (£6.0m) will be a mere FPL footnote if he stays at Stamford Bridge but a loan move could renew interest, as happened in 2018/19.

Odion Ighalo (£6.5m) has extended his loan deal at Manchester United until January 2021 but the Nigerian will likely be reliant on an injury crisis hitting the Red Devils to gain meaningful game-time, as Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) or Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) could just as easily deputise as the spearhead of the United attack if Anthony Martial (£9.0m) ever faced a period on the sidelines.

Ighalo, indeed, is still waiting for his first Premier League start since moving from China.

Pitch-time may also be an issue for Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m), with Willian‘s (£8.0m) arrival handing Mikel Arteta the chance to use Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) centrally if ever the Arsenal boss opted against fielding Alexandre Lacazette (£8.5m) or indeed moves the Frenchman on.

Arteta clearly rates Nketiah, as the youngster was handed seven Premier League starts after returning from a loan spell with Leeds United in January.

While FPL managers could have stomached semi-regular benchings at Nketiah’s 2019/20 cost of £4.5m, the same might not apply after his price hike given the more ‘nailed’ starters elsewhere in this bracket.

As is the case with so many players, pre-season minutes will be a good way of gauging just how involved Nketiah might be in the Gunners’ appealing double-header against Fulham and West Ham United in Gameweeks 1 and 2.

The 21-year-old striker was given the nod to lead the line in the Community Shield on Saturday, which is a good start.

TOP-HALF OPTIONS

One of the joys of picking a Burnley asset is that, providing the team is in relatively good form, there is little danger of Sean Dyche rotating.

Chris Wood (£6.5m) is a bit of an unheralded mid-price forward and he delivered more goals (14) and registered more big chances (31) than all bar Abraham of the 25 strikers profiled in this article, despite starting just 29 games in an injury-disrupted season.

He has also registered more shots from inside the six-yard box than any other Premier League player in each of the last two campaigns, which is a great indicator of how often he gets into dangerous positions.

Few managers will be interested initially thanks to a Blank Gameweek 1 and a trip to Leicester City thereafter but he is one for the watchlist when the fixtures improve from Gameweek 3 onwards.

It remains to be see which of Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) or Jay Rodriguez (£6.0m) is Dyche’s preferred option alongside Wood next season, meanwhile, with Barnes starting 2019/20 as first-choice before injury curtailed his season in January.

The pair are more than capable of grabbing a goal or two themselves but Wood did outperform them on most ‘per 90’ metrics and he may well warrant the extra half a million outlay.

Sheffield United offered a lot of FPL value last season but not so much in attack.

The fact that none of their strikers started more than 24 matches or scored more than six league goals is a worry, with Chris Wilder fond of rotating his front two in an otherwise very settled side.

Only four clubs scored fewer Premier League goals than the Blades last season, meanwhile.

Oliver McBurnie (£6.0m) seems to be the pick of the three Bladesmen at this price, having belatedly established himself as a regular up top and having started 16 of Sheffield United’s final 17 fixtures – more than Billy Sharp (£6.0m) or Lys Mousset (£6.0m) managed in the whole of 2019/20.

Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.0m) looks good for a goal whenever he features for Leicester City but game-time is the main issue with the Nigerian, who hasn’t played more than 1,000 minutes of league football in any of the last five seasons.

Unless we get wind of a Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) injury in pre-season or Brendan Rodgers hints at starting two strikers up front, then there seems little value in a player who started just 12 matches in 2019/20 and who was described as an “impact player” by his manager as recently as July.

THE BEST – AND WORST – OF THE REST

What impact has David Moyes had on West Ham? 5

There’s only one place to start our ‘rest of the league’ round-up.

Many of us would have anticipated a positional reclassification for Michail Antonio (£6.5m) but, given what occurred after lockdown ended, few would have thought the West Ham United striker would be available at his cheapest price since 2015/16.

Granted, he’ll lose a handful of points for goals and clean sheets (not that the Hammers kept many) after his move from ‘midfielder’ to ‘forward’.

But the price drop and increased chance of bonus points will partly offset that and, comparing his credentials with other mid-price FPL forwards, he still stands out.

Ten goals and four assists from just 19 starts and five substitute appearances was impressive, with nine of those attacking returns arriving in West Ham’s post-restart fixtures.

Antonio’s season-long minutes-per-xGI (expected goal involvement) figure was also better than any other mid-price forward in this piece bar the peripheral Batshuayi and superior to the likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m).

As with most players, there are caveats.

His injury record has long been a cause for concern but he largely assuaged those fears with 14 successive starts at the end of 2019/20, even when the fixtures piled up.

Then there are questions over whether Sebastien Haller (£6.5m) will be reintegrated into the side and whether Antonio will be moved wide as a result or, as happened before coronavirus stopped play, whether they will be paired as a front two.

Perhaps the biggest downside is the tricky early-season fixture schedule but, that aside, he could represent excellent value in 2020/21 based on what we saw at the back-end of last season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m) was a popular FPL purchase immediately after Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival but ten successive blanks in the run-in blotted his copybook.

The Everton striker scored eight goals and set up another in the ten Gameweeks following the Italian’s arrival and he was a reliable starter, with his only benching under Ancelotti coming in Gameweek 38+ when the Italian allowed Moise Kean (£6.0m) a rare run-out up front.

Barring any new arrivals, Calvert-Lewin will still be expected to begin 2020/21 as one of Ancelotti’s go-to picks in attack ahead of Kean and the injured Cenk Tosun (£6.0m).

No other forward now in the £6.0m-£7.5m bracket registered more attempts on goal or shots in the box than Calvert-Lewin from Gameweek 19 onwards, so the underlying stats (and opening fixures) bode well if he can rediscover his finishing touch.

Our sole mid-price representative from the newly promoted sides is Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m).

The Serb is priced up cheaper than he was in 2018/19 and Werner is the only FPL forward who has a higher ownership figure than him at the time of writing.

With 26 goals and two assists last season, it’s not hard to see why: Mitrovic played a part in 49.1% of the goals that Fulham scored when he was on the pitch, a similar involvement figure (46%) that he posted in the Premier League in 2018/19.

Mitrovic also impressed on the underlying stats front last season, as he did the last time he was in the Premier League.

He isn’t particularly clinical, with a goal conversion rate of 17.2% in 2019/20 not too eye-catching considering the inferior standard of goalkeeping and defending in the second tier.

Indeed, Mitrovic only converted 8.4% of his chances when he was last in the top flight.

Despite the wastefulness, the sheer volume of opportunities that came his way in the Premier League meant that, even with a poor conversion rate, he still managed to find the net on 11 occasions.

Mitrovic also has penalties on his side, while none of his teammates had more direct free-kick attempts last season, either (six).

Security of starts is another string to his bow, if we ignore his fitness-related benching in the play-off final.

The ex-Newcastle striker started all 40 Championship games that he was available for, with his one and only substitution being enforced by injury.

Dwight Gayle (£6.0m) had hit a purple patch of form after lockdown ended, scoring on four occasions and assisting another goal, but the Newcastle United striker looks set to be ruled out for several months after picking up an injury in pre-season.

We won’t waste too much of your time talking up Joelinton’s (£6.0m) credentials in Gayle’s absence as, even if he had been half a million cheaper, there would still have been precious few takers in FPL.

The Brazilian didn’t miss a single Premier League match last season but two goals in 32 starts and six substitute appearances tells its own story.

Jordan Ayew (£6.0m) was prolific in comparison to Joelinton, scoring nine goals and assisting another three as a value-for-money £5.0m forward in 2019/20.

Security of starts was a big plus regarding Ayew, with the Ghanaian starting 37 of Palace’s 38 games, but that rise of one million does dent his appeal considering that he has not hit double figures for goals in a single season since moving to England in 2015.

The Eagles were the division’s second-lowest scorers last season, too, with the capture of attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze (£6.0m) from QPR no doubt an attempt to address that issue – and there were promising signs in the pre-season win over an admittedly limited Charlton Athletic side.

Like Calvert-Lewin, there was very little wrong with Neal Maupay‘s (£6.5m) underlying statistics last season.

No forward previewed in this piece registered more penalty box touches or attempts on goal and, while not rotation risk-free, he is still probably the safest route into an improving Brighton and Hove Albion attack after starting 30 of the Seagulls’ 38 league fixtures.

Too often his finishing let him down, however, and a price rise after a modest ten-goal haul when the likes of Wood and Antonio are available for the same money does raise questions over his value.

Similar concerns can be expressed over Aston Villa duo Wesley (£6.0m) and Mbwana Samatta (£6.0m), too, despite them being half a million cheaper.

A combined six goals in 32 starts was a fair reflection of their indifferent debut seasons but they weren’t helped by the supply line or Dean Smith’s brand of play, with their remit as lone target-men as much to bring the midfielders into play as it was to find the back of the net themselves.

Villa, of course, blank in Gameweek 1.

Finally, a word on the man many FPL managers are hoping can partly emulate Danny Ings‘ (£8.5m) achievements of last season.

Che Adams (£6.0m) caught the eye after the summer restart, finding the back of the net on four occasions; Giroud and Antonio were the only two FPL forwards who could better his goals-per-90-minutes average after lockdown.

It’s still a bit early to say for sure whether Adams will become a regular starter alongside Ings as Shane Long (£5.5m) had been preferred before coronavirus stopped play, starting all but one of the matches he was available for between Gameweeks 15 and 29.

With little to play for after football resumed in June, Ralph Hasenhuttl brought Adams back into the fold and it may be that he impressed enough to be given more of an opportunity in his sophomore season.

Pre-season will hopefully give us an indicator, one way or another.

    Am I right in thinking the below is likely to be Wolves back line?

    Vinagre Coady Boly Saiss AMN

      Depending on transfers

      Yeah I’d say so

    3. JBG

      I think they are also considering a young RB from Valencia, if I'm not mistaken. Correia or something.

    4. RamaJama

      Vinagre also attacking like Boly and Saiss?

        Vinagre is very attacking, but his problem is defending imo.

    5. _sidney_will

      AMN will stay at Arsenal

      1. Super Saints

        Agree

          Don’t think so - clearly in the shop window

          1. _sidney_will
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            He doesn’t want to leave & Arteta rates him too - I’d be very surprised to see him go

    6. Marmalade Forest
      • 3 Years

      Might play Dendonker in there.

    7. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      You just have to look at Mendes books and it's there the answer. The laundromat clubs are benfica, atletico madrid valencia Monaco. Plus wolves of course. There's also a handful of minor ones as well but I don't think it's where the future RB of Wolverhampton is coming from...

  3. Inazuma X1

    Yikes 41% ownership for Werner

    1. Eat my goal!

    Whats the most expensive price you'd have messi at? For me 13.5

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      15

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Depends on value appearing elsewhere

      If chelsea really kick off and son performs well etc then you’ve got cheaper options

      Messi would need to return significantly more than Kdb and not be rotated

      Can’t see that happening tho - who wants 13-15 mil wrapped up in a player who will miss games before CL etc

    3. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He’s not coming to the prem. 33 years old, he’ll get smashed week in week out so if I was him I’d avoid. Serie A is the place to be for him, probably Inter as he wouldn’t want to share the glory with Ronaldo at juventus

      1. Guba
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        No way Inter can afford him I think. They're also linked with players like Kante who Conte obviously loves as well as a LB. .

        1. Guba
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          If he moves anywhere it will be City or PSG. No doubt in my mind.

      2. DARE TO BISCAN
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Don't think he'd go to Italy. Nobody could afford him. He wouldn't go to Juve and wouldn't want to play for an also-ran. Especially with Ronaldo at Juve. City will have already given him a big bag of cash, under the table.

    4. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I’d pay 25m

      1. LangerznMash
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        LOL.
        So you think Messi + 2x £4.5m scores more than £34m spent on Auba, KdB + Kane.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I’m joking lad

          1. LangerznMash
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            ahh Bazzinga!

    It's official - Doherty to Spurs!

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 6 Years

      Right then.

      Sorted for right back

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He's not worth the extra 1m over Dier and Davies now

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Get to bed

        He's as good as a midfielder

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I just got up!

          Not when Mourinho gets hold of him

          1. The Pesci challenge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Aurier didn’t do too badly under Mourinho

      2. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I don’t think you understand how a Mourinho team works.

        He has a back 4. When they press his right back becomes his right winger and his left back (Davies) pulls back as part of a back 3.

        He will arguably be better for spurs than he was for wolves.

        Absolutely nailed in my team.

          Great for son as well

          1. The Pesci challenge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Absolutely

            How?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Because when your Rwb presses forward and sends passes across the box it’s the left attack running into the box that benefits

              1. Sanchit
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                How many of Aurier assists were to Son?
                TAA had 15 assists, but only 3 to Mane.
                Robertson had 4 to Salah and 3 to Mane.

          3. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Not necessarily.

            The issue with son was that he was giving them their width on the left whilst Davies tucked back into the back three.

            Really want son, but something holding me back with him unfortunately.

            • 2 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Is it actually? Son plays wide on the other side and how many times did we see A Doherty, G Jota?

            1. Eat my goal!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Different players - i see son running into the box and getting on the end of those crosses

              Feel doh is more effective and clinical at those passes than Aurier

              That said I agree son does have to adopt that wide left position- but he did last year and still returned well

          5. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Worse for son, the way I look at it he will drift out wide like a Left wing back

            1. baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yes, Kane is probably the one who is most likely going to benefit.

        2. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Or Davies becomes his left winger and Doherty has to pull back. We shall probably see both situations happening.

          1. Guba
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Doherty is quite obviously the better attacking player of the two and the reason Mourinho has decided to buy.

              Yes, but he needed someone to replace Aurier also.

              1. Guba
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Hard to know which came first really.

                1. Guba
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 23 days ago

                  Regardless Doherty will be much more attacking than Davies.

        3. DARE TO BISCAN
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Think he only did that because Aurier can't defend. Would be good if he carried on that way. Doherty is all round a better RB

      3. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Doh: 167 points last season. 4.6 per game.

        Dier and Davies: 1.9 and 2.3 respectively.

      I guess time will tell, but right now, for 15m, it looks like Spurs got a bargain...

    4. Flair

      Not getting rid of him yet, still a nice option but I also feel more trigger happy when I see Dier for 1M less

      1. baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I think that one million is too tempting for me. Yes, he is better option than Dier, but is he worth one million extra? .5 I would pay happily, but whole million means serious upgrade elsewhere.

        1. Sanchit
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          1 million extra for approx 5 goals and 5 assists( around 50 points more).
          I'd happily pay that.

    5. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Interesting signing but a little average in his overall play. He worked well in the wolves system but he's not really top class. Will be interesting how he does at spurs

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        an upgrade on aurier at least

        1. redsallstars
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          He’s worth the extra £1m over Dier and Davies. Aurier bombs forward under Mourinho, Doherty will do same except better end product than Aurier. No brainier imo, straight into my team

    6. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      What I want to know is how the hell did they get him at such a cheap price?

  6. LangerznMash
    • 4 Years

    A) Foden + Son
    B) Greenwood + Ziyech

    1. Super Saints

      Sorry mate but I don't like either at the moment

      1. LangerznMash

        Fair enough. Gotta wait on Ziyech injury news I guess.

    2. ClassiX

      Likely Chelsea will buy him

        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Don’t think so, they like rlc and Mount and will try to give them minutes so no more mids coming in after havertz is done. They’ll then concentrate on a goalkeeper and that’s them done

    2. redsallstars

  8. HadiSLIM
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on my first draft?

    Mccarthy (Nyland)
    Vinagre - TAA - Doherty - James (Taylor)
    Soucek - Ziyech - Aubameyang (Stephens , Greenwood)
    Jimenez- Werner - Ings

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'd say you need at least two big hitters in midfield, I can't even squeeze one of Jimi Ings in let alone two.

      1. HadiSLIM
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Dont you think theyre a must have given last season? i have seen a lot of teams with either (Jimenez/Ings) or none. why tho?

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I'm finding them overpriced tbh and they're not explosive enough for that price point imo

          1. Gingerman
            1 month, 23 days ago

            They are not overpriced, but Jimi in particular is not known to be explosive but will get you steady points and Ings is captainable on his day. If they are overpriced, I don't know what to say about Vardy.

            1. Gingerman
              1 month, 23 days ago

              I would say you've spent to much money up top though, forwards are not where the value is. You argue all forwards are overpriced in that respect.

              1. HadiSLIM
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Bruno - Mitro instead of Ings/Jimenez - Ziyech ?

              1 month, 23 days ago

              I just can't fit them in with Auba KDB Fernandes Werner and a decent defence. I rate them both but I think this season they are overpriced for the team structure that's all.

          2. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            They are already amongst the best value players in the game. Why should they be priced lower, it would be incorrect

        2. Society
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Providing Werner, Jimenez & Ings have 190-200 seasons, it's a straight swap with just a lil' quibbling over a point or two beyond 200 ..... and it's a damn sight cheaper.
          Greenwood at first bench provides flexibility to chase score consistency.

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

            Greenwood is too expensive to be benched.

              That's his choice.
              James in def would be my bench that game week & all season.

                Lol, brought up my spread sheet base plan (that allows for me to chase band wagons or upsides),

    Everton fans, what happened to DCL after the restart? What do you think was the reason for his lack of goals. Just bring all round poor or was it due to other factors?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Not an Everton fan but he isn’t that good so much so that richarlison has to go up top to help him out. The service isn’t great granted but they seriously need a proper number 9

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Not a fan but they had no midfield and the team lacked motivation, completely on the beach. DCL can be a great player, Ancelotti likes him a lot and I trust a world class manager's judgement.

      1. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Ancelotti didnt have much to choose from though do he?

        1. The Pesci challenge

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 23 days ago

          He's talked very positively about DCL and given him a lot of chances when one may have turned to his compatriot Kean - clearly Carlo sees potential in him.

          1. The Pesci challenge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Kwan’s a mess and needs to sort himself out. Ancelotti is a good coach so knows what to say and when to say it about his players. Everton need to sort their midfield out as well as striker this season. Allan is a good start

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Far too cynical here, I didn't see him comment that about Iwobi for example

  10. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Big up top!

    McCarthy Steer
    TAA Doherty Vinagre (Johnson) (Struijk)
    (A)uba Son Saka Soucek (ASM)
    Kane Werner Ings

  11. LangerznMash
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    I know this is probably planning too far ahead but I'm looking to transition to this 541 for GW4.

    McCarthy (WBA)
    TAA + Robbo (avl), Laporte (lee), Digne (BRI), Tierney (SHU)
    KdB (lee), Rashford + Greenwood (TOT), Ziyech (CRY)
    Werner (CRY)
    -bench all 4.5s-

    So to pick my GW1 squad I am going to start here and work backwards to figure out how to workaround the missing Manchester lads. As it would take 4 transfers in 3 weeks (-4) I will likely start with Greenwood as a non-playing sub as I don't want to take a single point hit this season.

    It's still causing a bit of a headache working out the most efficient way of transitioning.

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Form players will dictate your squad not planned transfers

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        This. You will not be able to do this with emerging bandwagons.

        Also, 5 at the back really just won't work. and it's because of spend efficiency. You can get players at 4.5m that can perform in defense vs in mid and attack where those guys will get you nothing.

        1. LangerznMash
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          You are both probably right.
          That GW4 squad just looks so good for 100+ points.
          It will all go wrong though lol it always does!

        2. Society
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Camzy, which 6.0 mid has the ceiling Digne or Laporte do ?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Pereira, Saka, Trossard. They can all outscore Digne or Laporte on a given week. You don't have to hold players for the whole season.

            Also your comparison is lacking because the better question is:

            Pereira + Vinagre/KWP
            vs
            Laporte + Bissouma

        3. nicksilver
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Exactly! Too many variants to consider in the game weeks prior. 5 Defenders risky strategy too

  12. InterUranus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 23 days ago

    3 premium mids or 3 premium forwards?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      What were the three top scoring players last season?
      Plus Fernandes and Auba now!

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Not a direct comparison. You will have 5-6 million more if you chose 3 premium strikers.

    2. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Mids almost always outscore forwards

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Cost around 2 million more too!
        If you ignore captaincy
        Jiminez is far far better value at 8.5 than any of the 12 mids.

        Or think of it this way ( ignoring captaincy)..

        Auba + ASM
        Vs
        Son + Jiminez

        1. ClassiX
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Answering a general question in a general way, but I understand your point. Would you be happy with the following mids/forwards combo:
          JWP, ASM, Bruno, Son, Soucek
          Kane/Aguero, Vardy/Werner, Jimenez/Ings

          1. Sanchit
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I'd suggest to start with who you're going to captain. Have that premium player. And then have 4-5 sub premium options with higher ceilings.

            Last year the best value players were Martial Bruno Rashford and all were sub premium options

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Mids for me

    4. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Premium mids always out score forwards however the top 3 mids cost £5m more than top 3 forwards this season so it could be close in terms of value.

    5. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'll go against the grain here. I think the FPL have dangled a carrot by underpricing some of the leading forwards by 0.5m and overpricing some premium midfielders by the same.

      Just my opinion, don't shoot me!

      1. Spab
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Agree. Also, we all know it's about having the right players at the right time. You could look at Aguero's total points last year and be underwhelmed, but when he was injured, we swapped him for someone else who scored points. Same for Kane. The total points scored is slightly misleading in that regard.

    6. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      None. I'd say decide who you want captain the most and have that one premium player. You can have a great defence and sub premium mids/forwards along with your captain

  13. kime67
    • 3 Years

    Is soucek too good value to ignore? he could just sit there as a set and forget, think hell get 10+ goals?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I agree, incredible value, will be starting most weeks for me

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Trouble is the first lot of fixtures are just bad so I’m avoiding for the time being. I’m not paying an extra .5 to just bench him, if he takes off I can move ASM to him easy

    3. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If he blanks GW1 then all the casuals will ditch him due to next figures so his price will rapidly drop. Maybe be worth just waiting until GW8 to buy him for £4.7m...

      1. BoleynWin
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Can’t see that dramatic price drop purely because there’s no viable alternatives at that price point.

        I think he will tick over even in that unfavoured fixture run, set piece threat etc

    4. Kambo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I don't predict people will jump on early to cause a price rise, but more likely predicting people trade away to someone getting returns over the early parts of the season on better fixtures, causing Soucek to drop in price.
      I do think he is the best option around the 5m mark across the season from GW8 onwards.

    5. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      In almost half of the matches he played for WHU last year, he registered 0 shots and 0 key passes.

      I think he's just this year's FFS hyped player. Similar to Cairney a couple seasons back.

    6. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 23 days ago

      The West Ham team is going to struggle all round this year, especially if they lose Rice. Antonio is over-hyped imo and the team will be rotated around desperately until they find a winning formula.

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years

      Looking good, but not sure about Saliba, we still have no idea if he will start. Also why not downgrade JWP to Armstrong and upgrade Stephens to Soucek?

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Cheers, I really want an Arsenal defender, I really like the look of Holding as well so the jury’s it at the moment.
        I chose Ward Prowse as I think he’s a better player and he’s on pens....

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Apparently Ings took a pen in pre season. So JWP might not be on them anymore.

          1. Sanchit
            • 5 Years

            JWP also took one in the same match

      Downgrade VVD to 4.5 or 4 defender and you'll get a good midfielder for gw1

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 1 Year

    I have 3 slots that are unconfirmed now.

    A) Justin, Saka, Ings/Jimenez
    B) Doherty, Ziyech/Alli, 4.5m
    C) Justin, Ziyech/Alli, Nketiah

    These are the options I'm tossing around.

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      B

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Saka and Nketiah unreliable for minutes and justin only sufficient over the short term, so B for me

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        They can be unreliable because I have Soucek as my 8th attacker.

    3. Guba
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm on Ings at the moment, scored 2 yesterday and more reliable pick for me against Ziyech/Alli.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeah he is more reliable indeed.

        1. Guba
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          At the moment I'm debating starting with Saka myself too, I've got £1m ITB to spend on my team after GW1 as needed and I quite like the idea of upgrading to Foden after monitoring his starts in the GW2/3. Can see Arsenal being full of confidence I'd love two attacking assets for the two plum fixtures.

          Ziyech failed the eye test for me yesterday FPL wise, I know it was only a friendly but has pushed me to change to Ings for now.

          1. Sanchit
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I heard he was easily the best player on the pitch in the first half?

            1. Guba
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yeah I meant relative to FPL. The goal did come from his cross, assisting the assister. But I'm not sure he's going to be in the points much compared with similar priced players like Ings and Jiminez.

    4. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      B because they'll start!

    5. nicksilver
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Probably A

    6. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I’m not a fan of Alli personally, he has his moments but he’s not one who you can rely on.

      Ziyech looked brilliant before he came off, on the other hand.

      Of those, it’s C for me with Ziyech

    7. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Do you need to play all 3 of these? Or just 2?
      If 2, then definitely B
      If 3 , then A

  17. Roy Rovers
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Just wondering if you would change anything?

    McCarthy Nyland
    TAA Vinagre Taylor Justin Mitchell
    Salah Auba Greenwood Armstrong Soucek
    Werner Ings Mitro

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yes I would change this team to my team.

      Jokes aside, good team but not sure about Justin at the moment

      1. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Show your team then!!!

        1. Jullepuu

            Good team....why ASM over Armstrong?

            1. Roy Rovers
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              10 out of 15 the same!

            2. Jullepuu
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 23 days ago

              More nailed imo. Not much in it

    2. Guba
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Nice team, good balance.

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      No love for spurs?
      They probably have the best run for the first 9-10 weeks

  18. Tashi Tshering
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Hey peoples I'm new to FPL.
    Can you guys give me some tips and advices
    Here is my team.

    McCarthy
    TAA Egan Vinagre
    Son saint-Maximin Lundstram Auba salah(c)
    Werner Ings
    Bench--- Nyland Davis Mitchell and Branthwaite

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lundstrum not nailed

    2. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lundstram will most likely not be the same player this year, so get him out for Soucek, Armstrong, JWP or any other 5.5 or less mid.

      Other than that it looks good.

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Lindstrom will be the same player.
        He'll not get the 3 extra CS points and extra point for a goal though 😛

    3. Flippo_
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Replace Lundstram for Soucek or Saka maybe?

    4. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Even Berge over Lundstram

  19. Dacra
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Gw2 wildcard

    Anyone? I wasn't, but just now thinking the United and City assets are going to increase, which is fine - but also that means lots of price drops too I guess for the popular non United and City?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      GW2-3 WC is the popular strategy as of now

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      It’s just a waste. I’m waiting for as long as possible this year as the teams that blank in gw1 have to play the games in hand before the new year so I will save it for then. Why not plan your team for the next 6 weeks and then just use transfers for someone on form or injuries?

      1. Kambo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeah I Agree. There's no way I feel safe in an early wildcard with so much to see from Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea and how they can come into play. I think we can work a way to get in United and City early on without that being the focal part of an early wildcard.

    3. Guba
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      My aim is to try hold out until GW10 where several teams have big fixture swings (pool/city main focus). If it looks to of benefit to WC earlier though I will.

    4. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      GW3 WC better for fixtures and gives you more information on teams/starters/form situation.

    I've put together a list of FPL leagues that are all free to enter and have prizes for the winner. I hope I'm allowed to post this as I'm sure a lot of people would find it useful, if not though feel free to delete.

    There are a currently over 100 leagues with a total value of over £37,000 on the list and I'll keep adding to it. Any questions let me know.

  21. Flippo_

    What are your thoughts on Brewster this season? Could he have the same potential as Greenwood last year or is the bench his place to be?

    1. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Looks tubby.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If he stays at Liverpool, then he won't have any impact. If loaned, will be a good 8th attacking player or even 11th men to afford extra premium.

    3. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He is in my team so far, in hopes that he will get loaned out.

    4. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Nothing if not loaned/transferred

  22. KujaliaFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Who is Struijk's competition in the Leeds defence?

    1. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Koch

      1. KujaliaFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        So his chances of playing are near nil?

        Any chance that he'll be moved into midfield?

        Could be the new Lundstram?

  23. Kobayashi
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Welcome Matt Doherty to my FPL team.

    Does this transfer make Vinagre less appealing as Wolves may no longer be as solid defensively?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Their defense didn't rely on Doherty for CSs.

      1. Kobayashi
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        That's like saying Liverpools defence yesterday didn't rely on TAA for CSs. Unless they have an adequate replacement in mind, it would lead to problems down one side of the flank, more exposure at the back and a drop in the creativity in the team.

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Obviously they don't. Likes of Trent/Doherty/Aurier are more helpful in attack rather than defense.

          Anything around Coady and Boly can be replaced without impact on their CS output. Its their attacking threat which may suffer due to absence of Jonny and Doherty.

          1. Kobayashi
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Check out Camzy's reply below - "offense is also a form of defense". They are still classified as defenders, and this is what I mean.

            I'm sure these players make attack more than they defend sometimes, but in doing so they force the opposition LW/RW back and prevent them from attacking themselves.

        2. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Maitland is the expected replacement anyway, atleast defensively they are probably on same level.

    2. Silent Friend
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      more
      Deoherty was their weakest link

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Offense is also a form of defense. By having attacking outlets pushed up, they also force opposing LW back. It doesn't really work as simply as they were being attacked after Doherty lost the ball...

        1. Kobayashi
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Exactly what Camzy said above, this is what I was thinking too.

      2. Kobayashi
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Interesting, but with Doherty's marauding runs forward, whoever replaces him would likely be facing more pressure from the left winger from the opposing side if sat more defensively. I'm sure it's going to test them one way or another!

  24. Kobayashi
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Also if I understand it correctly - you could transfer 3 Spurs players to your team now, add Doherty and effectively play 4? Until you're next forced to make a transfer, of course.

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Correct

    2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      would anyone want 4 spurs players?

      1. Kobayashi
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Who knows, they do have good fixtures but I just wanted to verify it was possible.

        If it was a player moving to Man City, I'm sure some would be tempted if they didn't have a blank GW.

  25. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    So Palace now have 2 "Zaha", time to pick Milivojevic again...

  26. Gudge
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Opinion please

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    Trent, Doh, Justin Vinagre (Taylor)
    Son, Salah, Armstrong, Aub, (Foden)
    Mitro, Ings (Davis)

    Salah> Fernandes gw2
    Is it worth trying to get in greenwood over Foden?

    1. Flippo_
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Just wait what the role of Doherty in the Spurs defence will be. If he is an attacking defender still, then I should keep him. if not, maybe sell him for a cheaper Spurs defender I think.

  27. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Jimi appeal has just diminished

  28. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    So the Doc has gone, guess I don't need Eric Dier anymore 🙂

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Why not?

  29. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    McCarthy or Ryan and why? Cheerd

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      McCarthy, better defence.

      1. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Dunk Ben White Webster Burn Duffy
        Bisouma Alzate Stephen.

        I think Brighton have more solid player\s

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Don't really like any of them tbh. McCarthy if forced.

  30. I am here to Michu
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Matt Doherty to Spurs is a done deal.

    Doherty has scored 8 goals and bagged 15 assists in the last couple of seasons.

    One of the main reasons for his attacking returns is him playing a wing-back.

    How will Spurs line up this season? Is it going to be a back 4? Is he still a good option?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lloris

      Doherty - Alderweireld - Dier - Davies

      Højbjerg - Lo Celso

      Moura/Bergwijn - Alli - Son

      Kane

      As for the good option question, there's a lot of subjectivity. I'd say yes, others would say no. Read the discussions, analyse the stats and history, then make your decision.

    2. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He is still a good option, but whether he is worth one million extra over Dier is the question.
