The best budget defensive rotation pairs for the new FPL season

Defensive rotations are the key to maximising the efficiency of cheaper Fantasy Premier League assets, especially this season.

Using the Fantasy Football Scout Season Ticker, we have picked out some of our favourite pairings of teams for those looking to make full use of their 15 players in 2020/21.

These include the pros and cons of each pairing, as well as other considerations that must be made before investing.

SHEFF UTD + SOUTHAMPTON

One of the most promising rotation pairings in terms of fixtures at the start of the season involves Sheffield United and Southampton.

As you can see from the Season Ticker above, the two clubs have paired home games and even their away trips look promising between Gameweeks 1 and 6.

Owning a defensive asset from each of these clubs would give Fantasy managers the following fixture list (if rotated appropriately): cry | avl | LEE | WBA | FUL | EVE

While only four of those fixtures are at home, the tougher match-ups cancel each other out in the first two away ones. During Project Restart, Crystal Palace (five) and Aston Villa (seven) were inside the bottom three for goals scored, only Norwich (one) finding the net fewer times.

Beyond that, it’s three matches in a row against newly-promoted sides, before Everton who, like Villa, only registered seven goals in Project Restart, come to Southampton in Gameweek 6.

Meanwhile, only five teams kept more clean sheets than the Blades and Saints (both three) during the last nine Gameweeks of 2019/20.

However, the question still remains: how does one invest in this rotation with effective budget options?

Sheffield United’s roster presents slightly more problems out of the two clubs, after their price hikes for 2020/21. 

Pre-season may have raised the interest in Jack Robinson (£4.5m), who has featured heavily in all of Sheffield United’s friendlies thus far, while Jack O’Connell (£5.0m) has been absent.

The former £4.0m man has played 292 of a possible 315 minutes this summer, behind only Chris Basham (£5.0m) when it comes to most-used centre-backs.

Outside of Robinson, who is by no means a nailed-on long-term starter at Bramall Lane, Fantasy managers may have to put up a little more cash to have a reliable route here.

Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m), John Egan (£5.0m) as well as Basham and O’Connell are probably the ones to turn to.

Thankfully, the Southampton side of this equation is much simpler. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side can offer us a £4.5m goalkeeper in Alex McCarthy (£4.5m), as well as a similarly-priced full-back in Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m).

BURNLEY + LEICESTER

Price points are much less of an issue for anyone considering a defensive rotation of Burnley and Leicester assets.

Despite the recent arrival of Timothy Castagne (£5.5m), James Justin (£4.5m) looks likely to be involved in the early part of the campaign on either side of the Foxes’ defence, with Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m) and Christian Fuchs (£4.5m) out injured.

Meanwhile, Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) is on offer at Burnley and, with several shortages at centre-back during pre-season, Jimmy Dunne or Bobby Thomas (neither have an FPL price yet) could be involved.

The fixtures work out relatively nicely, but not quite as snugly as the Sheffield United+Southampton ones do.

Not game for Burnley in Blank Gameweek 1 is covered quite nicely by a trip to West Bromwich Albion for Leicester.

They then host the Clarets in Gameweek 2, but Sean Dyche’s men will face Southampton at Turf Moor the following week when Leicester must travel to Manchester City.

Gameweeks 4 and 5 offer some choice, with Newcastle (away) and West Ham (home) the first of those, before it’s West Brom (away) or Villa (home).

Then, the pairing runs into slightly more of an issue in Gameweek 6 when Burnley host Spurs at the same time as Leicester travel to Arsenal, although in this strange start to the season, many managers may have Wildcarded by that point anyway.

ASTON VILLA + CRYSTAL PALACE

Aston Villa and Crystal Palace balance some very nice home matches during the first six Gameweeks.

Dean Smith’s men don’t play during the opening round of action but the Eagles host Southampton that week.

Beyond that, investing in these two clubs could give a Fantasy manager the opportunity to defend against SHU | EVE | LIV | BHA | LEE.

The Liverpool game for Villa naturally looks a bit tricky, especially with a trip to Chelsea the alternative for Palace, although Smith has managed to improve his defence since Project Restart. Even though Villa lost 2-0 at Anfield, they held the Reds at bay for 71 minutes.

As for routes into the defences of either side, there are a plethora of choices, including some £4.0m options.

Following injuries to Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m) and three different centre-backs, Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) has become a virtual ever-present at left-back for Palace during pre-season.

What impact has new formation had on Targett and Villa's defence?

At Villa, the ongoing fitness issues suffered by Tom Heaton (£4.5m), and current lack of new signings between the sticks, means that one of Ørjan Nyland (£4.0m) or Jed Steer (£4.0m) is likely to start the first few matches of 2020/21. Paying attention to Smith’s next press conference may hopefully tell us more in this department.

If uncertainty there, as well as an eventual return of Heaton, is enough to put off investors, there are plenty of £4.5m defenders at Villa Park.

Matty Cash (£5.0m) has probably cast enough doubt over Frédéric Guilbert (£4.5m) and Ahmed El Mohamady (£4.5m), but Matt Targett (£4.5m) remains the first-choice on the left-hand side of the defence.

As for Crystal Palace, Scott Dann (£4.5m) has been the most-used centre-back during pre-season outside of Cheikhou Kouyaté (£5.0m), who is filling in there from midfield. 

Joel Ward (£4.5m) has also been extensively used at right-back during the pre-season (298 minutes from a possible 360), although how long-term a role he has remains to be seen when Nathan Ferguson (£4.0m) gets back from injury.

BRIGHTON + LEEDS

This combination of defenders is not quite as attractive as those mentioned above, but is still worth being aware of.

The home matches on offer between Brighton and Leeds are CHE | FUL | MUN | MCI | WOL | WBA. Hardly the best combination. 

However, if rotated around the opponents rather than around the venue, Fantasy managers could set themselves up to defend against the following: CHE | FUL | shu | eve | cry | WBA – much more appealing.

That provides two opponents who scored seven goals or fewer during Project Restart, two newly-promoted clubs as well as Sheffield United, who averaged 0.9 goals per game in the final 10 matches of last season.

There are other risks associated with this rotation, of course, namely in the ability of the two defences to keep clean sheets.

During the Project Restart period, only Arsenal (15.69) and Norwich (17.47) recorded a higher expected goals conceded (xGC) score than Brighton, while Leeds arrive in the Premier League after a 16-year absence.

Perhaps, then, Mat Ryan (£4.5m) and Illan Meslier (£4.5m) might be the best bets here, as they can potentially rack up saves based on conceding a high volume of shots.

Considering Graham Potter’s propensity to rotate even in defence, the Seagulls’ goalkeeper becomes even more attractive. Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) is perhaps the only nailed-on defender and is probably too pricey to consider right now.

There is more certainty in Leeds’ back-four with Luke Ayling (£4.5m) and Liam Cooper (£4.5m) especially nailed-on to start at right-back and centre-back respectively.

      cannot bring myself to bench anything over 4.5

        Ordinarily yes, but these are strange times.

    thoughts on this bunch then??

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Saiss Dallas
    Auba(c) Alli Soucek
    Vardy DCL Adams

    Peacock-Farrell Reed Rashford C.Taylor

    £1.0 ITB

    Soucek 12th man, placeholds for rashford GW1. Dallas C.Taylor can fill in as 4th defenders with TAA, Robbo starting every week and Saiss starting majority. Don't want Salah as imo Auba is the best captain for week 1/2, can't bring myself to own Salah without a want to put the armband on him. No Chelsea I know but would rather sit until after GW2, Alli can easily become any mid with money ITB or Vardy could become Werner.

    1. Penzardlife
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      You've thought much more about this team than anyone who replies ever will, back it.

      I like it though! Own Son but reckon Alli will be great value, probably even better. Saints defence has nothing on Leeds.

    0.5m to spend. Who would you upgrade if any?

    Tempted to upgrade Walton to McCarthy and have rotating keepers.

    Ryan (Walton)
    Justin, KWP, Mitchell
    ASM, Soucek

    1. Hart-ake
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Personally, I think Justin to a 5mil defender (Spurs or Wolves maybe?). Or just bank it, no need to spend for the sake of it.

  4. Hart-ake
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    How is this looking? 1m itb, potentially used for Son to Rashford in GW2. Eddie could also become Wilson.

    Ramsdale (Steer)
    TAA, Davies, Vinagre (Taylor, Mitchell)
    Salah Auba Son Pereira ASM
    Werner Nketiah (4.5 striker)

        Very much. Zaha otherwise

      2. Hart-ake
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I think he is a nice punt, particularly for the first two gameweeks. Then can switch to Greenwood/Foden easily.

      3. linkafu
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        could be but are we sure Greenwood will still be nailed? With DVB in maybe they will change attack system no?

              JRod is a my main punt, as nobody else appeals to me below 8m

        RMT please , will switch Salah & Son > KDB & Fernandes for GW3

        McCarthy (Nyland)
        Doherty - James - TAA - KWP (Justin)
        Auba - Salah - Son - Soucek (ASM)

          2 months, 20 days ago

          Agree with Southampton getting stronger this season, but wouldn't go with defensive double up, rather bringing in Ings or Adams instead
          Do you have money left if another striker excels next to Werner?

          1. Malinwa
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            only 0.5 left itb.
            Would you go for an updrade of Mitro?

          Havertz by a mile. He's Chelsea's Bruno. Scored 17 goals in 34 Bundesliga games two seasons ago. 12 in 30 in the most recent one.

          1. 11 smelly shirts
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            but will he start in GW 1

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              He's more likely to start than the other two picks. I was assuming this was a 'for the season' thing. He's better for GW1 and he's better for the season.

        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I like Wilson. Has a good record against West Ham too as he himself pointed out.

        Got him in for Adams. Prefer him for sure as a main striker for Newcastle with better fixtures.

        1. Silent Friend
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          it's a trap, along with ASM

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Then he's a pretty decent trap to fall into because there are loads of options at that price point.

        2. Dthinger
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          At 6.5 he's a great option!

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            He'll be as talismanic as Mitrovic. I got him in for Adams too.

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              and a better team behind him, plus his buddy fraser with him! Great signings for NEW

        3. Penzardlife
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Better fixtures? Maybe for the first two weeks. GW3-6 are all blanks.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            First two are what counts. He'll likely be out of the team if he doesn't deliver by then honestly.

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              he would be out by then anyway as we all re-set our teams to sort out the Manshester teams

          Soucek no for me
          Is Mitro really worth having?

            No idea why I have gone Zaha, but yes it's punty (lol)..

            I agree ref soucek, but need someone cheap I guess?

              Soucek is best player for 5.0 agree - can you get another 0.5? if so some good options:

              ASM

                  if Saka nails a spot then he is excellent @ 5.5 also

                  but there is an IF

          I'm not jumping on the Auba and Salah train, but it looks good
          Auba only twice away from home last season and Salah doesn't seem to be in form. However, could well work out for you

            Thanks.. I normally get off to a bad start and get stronger throughout the season, so this season I'm going with gut I think..

            Still time to tweak though I guess and getting Utd/City in will be hard, but I'm taking each week as it comes as you don't know what's going to happen with COVID etc I guess..

            thanks for your time though.. At least it appears to be half decent..

              I guess I could drop Zaha to ASM and upgrade Soucek to Traore?

                Traore might play as wing back.

              Sounds very good and yes, very decent. Good luck!
              For below comment: not sure if it makes much difference point wise. Is Traore fit again after Covid?

        Sterling vs KDB in GW3 is killing me...

        Any thoughts?

          Yes. Watch them GW2.

          If this is a transfer happening GW3 then I wouldn't worry about it until the time.

            • 6 Years

            Ofc but don’t really wanna base it off one game beforehand

              • 5 Years

              You don't have to.

              Well then all you can base it off is data from a different season lol.

              KDB creates many more big chances and tends to make a mug of xG with his distance shooting. Sterling gets way more big chances.

              That's all I can tell you without watching them in GW2.

          Sterling the Man to have this season!

        5. LangerznMash
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I want KdB but if his prices rises too much by GW3 then I will have to go Sterling (unless his prices rises equally).

        With so many (possibly) good options around 7.5- 9.5m mark, could it be worth going with just one premium player? Looking at players like Jimenez, Ings, Richarlison, James, Greenwood, Martial, Son, Alli, Werner, Pulisic, Ziyech.

        With Covid around i think it could be a good move to actually have a player capable of scoring on bench.
        Quick draft:

        McCarthy Button
        TAA Saiss KwP Justin 4.0
        Salah Son Pulisic Greenwood Fraser

        Alli or Barnes?

          barnes

        will wilson be nailed on?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          As their only functional striker, I'd hope so!

          Against Joe Linton I think I would be nailed on.

        Anyone here going with Cellabos, just looked at him at 5

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          He had one game with attacking returns the entirety of last season. Pass from me. For 0.5m you can get Saka instead.

        2. Lukakus Unit
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I am (until tomorrow when I undoubtedly change my team another several times).

        3. linkafu
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I m looking too but people here told me he's a good player but not a good FPL player

          1. Andrew
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            100% right, he'll generally assist the assister.

        4. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I have him but wouldn't expect a lot of points.

        5. luke25
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Not the worst option for that price if he's benched most weeks

        Can Foden cover Greenwood?

        Just noticed the FFS Predicted Line-ups have updated. They've gone with Podence starting for Wolves. The £5.5m mids are teasing me.

        Who is playing at right back for Wolves now?

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Traore

      23. FPLShaqiri
        • 2 Years

        If Watkins goes to Villa what price? My guess would be 6m, same as Mitro

        Please help!

        Diagana or Saka?

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Saka

      26. Lukakus Unit
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        For a 6.0 Mid:

        a) Matheus Pereira
        b) Ryan Fraser

        Fraser has better fixtures, but may need time to bed in. Pereira still has ok fixtures though (Leicester is missing most of their D and then Everton). Plan on swapping the player week 3 or 4 unless they go on a run of form.

        1. Silent Friend
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Perreira has better fixtures, check again bro

        Fabio Silva at wolves intrigues me - will he start?

        1. Ole.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Can't see him starting personally. Jimi, Jota, Neto, Podence, Traore and him for 2/3 spots.

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Yeah tough for him.. one to monitor but I think he'll feature a lot given the price tag
