The best goalkeepers and defenders for Sky Sports Fantasy Football

With less than a week to go, the time is now to decide on which defenders will and will not make your Sky Sports Fantasy Football backline.

Goalkeepers and defenders are an integral part of any team, but they have become increasingly important in the art of Fantasy Football, and even more so in Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

Rewinding to the 2018/19 campaign, I reported that there were five defenders among the top 10 point-scorers in the game, but fast forward to last season, and there were four goalkeepers and defenders combined who achieved the same feat, those being Dean Henderson and the Liverpool trio of Andrew Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk.

There are some potential bargains, and there are some which will come out of the woodwork, but two, or three of these five defensive players should be at the heart of your consideration when building your starting XI.

John Egan – £7.2m

Claiming an impressive 146 Fantasy Football points in his debut season in the Premier League, John Egan was value-for-money during Sheffield United’s successful campaign. Even with an increased price tag of £7.2m, he comes in as one of the cheapest assets in defence who started the majority of games last season.

This is reflected in his selection percentage, which currently stands at 11.75%. The price caters to accommodate those bigger players in defence, but at one of the value or budget picks, you will not go too far wrong with Egan, a solid defender who kept 13 clean sheets last term, scoring twice and picking up two man-of-the-match awards too.

Virgil van Dijk – £10.9m

Liverpool's FPL defenders struggle as Arteta hands out Arsenal goalkeeper clues

For the second season in succession, Virgil van Dijk recorded the most points out of any of the defenders, and of any player in Sky Sports Fantasy Football, despite racking up 31 points less (268) than he did in 2018/19 (299). This does still equate to 7.1 points per game, a fitting average for the most expensive defender, his price inflating to £10.9m for the new season.

It does not seem to have put many off, with van Dijk making it into 32.37 per cent of Fantasy Football teams. With 15 clean sheets, five goals, and hitting tier two passing bonus points (70+) on 21 occasions last season, it seems that even £10.9m is not beyond the extreme to have the Dutch skipper in your side.

With just four games to navigate before the Overhaul (unlimited transfers within the £100m budget for a set period of time), van Dijk looks a good route to get your season off and running emphatically, starting with new boys Leeds on Saturday, despite Chelsea and Arsenal following afterwards.

Nick Pope – £6.7m

The Burnley stopper registered a whopping 215 Fantasy points last season, just three behind Dean Henderson, who topped the charts. Nick Pope kept 15 clean sheets, just the one behind Ederson who claimed the Golden Glove. He has since earned an England call-up off the back of his solid performances between the sticks.

Burnley’s ever-resolute defence only let in 50 goals last campaign, and this level of consistency is expected to continue next year. After a tough trip to Leicester on the opening day, Burnley face Southampton and Newcastle before the international break.

Pope tallied tier one bonus points (three or more saves) on 15 occasions and tier two (five or more saves) six times, so even when clean sheets may be hard to come by, there will still be averages coming in from your number one.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – £10.6m

Trent Alexander-Arnold finished fourth in the Sky Sports Fantasy Football charts last campaign with 245 points. He made double figures with assists for the second consecutive season, ending on 13 from that department. Trent cruised his way to the Young Player of the Year award, and is set for another enjoyable term in the red of Liverpool.

Perhaps it is the fact that the English full back comes into the game £0.3m cheaper than his teammate Virgil van Dijk is the reason behind a higher selection percentage, which stands at 37.07 per cent. Will Alexander-Arnold make it into your starting XI for the opening day?

Kieran Tierney – £8.1m

We really started to see the best of Kieran Tierney towards the back end of last season, and the Scotsman played his part in Arsenal’s FA Cup final success. With a pre-season under his belt, he should be fit and raring to go ahead of the new campaign.

His statistics may not look the most promising, but his ability to get down the flanks and right to the byline before delivering inch-perfect crosses should account for an upturn in assists from defence. As well as this, Arsenal’s defence should (should) be a bit more solid and sturdy with William Saliba coming back from his loan spell and the introduction of Gabriel, so clean sheet points could be easier to come by.

Only a short period of time awaits until the first match of the season, with Fulham hosting Arsenal at Craven Cottage. 

Change and amend your team, and who knows, you could land yourself the £50,000 jackpot!

    Is Doherty going to start Week 1?

    1. FPL_Kick-Off
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Really hoping he is! i would think so because Aurier wants to leave to Ac milan and Doherty fits right into Mourinho's system well with a RWB.

      • ivantys
          2 months, 19 days ago

          My guess is doherty starts the league games while aurier plays the cup games.

        • Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year

          Difficult one with Aurier still at the club and Doherty with less than a weeks training at spurs

        So Brighton v Chelsea prediction?

        Is it worth doubling or Even tripling up?

          Maybe double if Lamps gives anything away in the presser

          It won't be a duckshoot. I don't think Chelsea will have their energy levels up yet.

              Which 4.0 defenders are most likely to get most minutes?

              Mitchell, Ferguson (if/when he returns from injury), Branthwaite, Bernardo, Johnson, Struijk?

              I need two of these 4.0 guys to make my plan work... Currently on Mitchell and Struijk.

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                I'm on Mitch and Struijk as well.

                  Ferguson from about GW3 or 4 could be a long termer.
                  Mitchell the first couple.
                  Johnson I can't bear to think about form and fixture wise.
                  The others I think are more likely to see minutes off the bench once in a blue moon.

                  1. GOATMEAT
                      2 months, 19 days ago

                      Could start with Mitchell and switch to Ferguson later though there are probably other more urgent transfers to do then.

                    I'm not sure on strujik, didn't that buy a centre back, Koch? Seems like Mitchell and either buur, Johnson. I'm looking for one guaranteed for the first week at least

                    1. ivantys
                        2 months, 19 days ago

                        Struijk has a higher chance of playing DM than CB

                        1. Soto Ayam
                          • 1 Year
                          2 months, 19 days ago

                          Oh nice then

                          1. ivantys
                              2 months, 19 days ago

                              It's still a low chance of that happening, just that I don't see him starting as CB

                              1. Soto Ayam
                                • 1 Year

                                Yeah, they're all dodgy picks at that price. I'm between mitchell and buur and maybe Johnson. Sure it'll be a last minute decision either way

                                1. GOATMEAT
                                    2 months, 19 days ago

                                    Thanks for the Buur tip. I'll look into that if Wolves doesn't buy a new RWB. Still Traoré might play that position.

                                  • ivantys
                                      2 months, 19 days ago

                                      Don't even consider johnson, his fixtures guarantee him 0-1 point every game even if he plays.

                                      1. Soto Ayam
                                        • 1 Year
                                        2 months, 19 days ago

                                        Yep, that's how bad it is, and he's not even nailed. I'm playing 343 with a decent 4th defender, so all I need is any fodder to fill the 5th spot really. Most likely Mitchel on current info, for a few weeks at least

                              2. GOATMEAT
                                  2 months, 19 days ago

                                  This was my thinking too. 4.0 OOP. Probably not new Lord but still something... if he gets minutes. Scored a goal recently.

                                  1. ivantys
                                      2 months, 19 days ago

                                      Plus DM role as a defender gets bonus points easier than a normal defender with clean sheet.

                              3. ivantys
                                  2 months, 19 days ago

                                  Only go 2 4.0s if you're comfortable with playing the same 3 defenders every week.

                                  1. GOATMEAT
                                      2 months, 19 days ago

                                      I would mostly play same 3 defenders so even just 1 semi-regular 4.0 defender could do.

                                      1. ivantys
                                          2 months, 19 days ago

                                          Same plan as me, I'm currently on buur and mitchell. I would go proper defenders when I wild card. The problem is trusting your same 2 starters every week.

                                          1. GOATMEAT
                                              2 months, 19 days ago

                                              Nice. I'll keep Mitchell and make a last minute decision between Buur and Struijk probably.

                                              S'alright. I wasn't asking for approval, just responding to the Knight's request.

                                            I really like it but you are no knight. Could be royalty or a squire, not sure - time will tell whether I bow to you or kick you up the a*se!

                                              Of course. I'm sure you can see I vomit over templates!

                                                You certainly do something in their general direction!

                                              It’s a mere scratch wound.

                                            It’s certainly different.

                                      2 months, 19 days ago

                                      Which option?

                                      A) Salah, Alli, Mitro
                                      B) Pulisic, Son, Ings

                                        I’d say A if you plan to keep Salah long term.
                                        B if your moving after one week.

                                        The only problem with B is that your taking away a 10m + slot from your team. I suppose that could be reversed with 2 FT’s though.

                                        B, but I'm such a mitro hater

                                        How on Earth is only Arsenal trying to get Aouar and Partey?
                                        €60m and €50m is seriously not that much given their quality.

                                          Liverpool and Spurs don't spend
                                          City don't need
                                          United and Chelsea have spent

                                            Well said but even outside of England you'd expect to see more interest for those two.

                                            yeah looks too risky for me. Happy to wait till gw3. Hamstrings are always tough to be confident on in return matches. So much goes into the load monitoring you can't be sure if he'll get 60-70min or a 20min cameo.

                                          Morning. Looking for a striker 7m or below who id be happy to keep long term- but who has a good game gw1 and could be removed for martial gw2 if i wanted.

                                          Already have Adams. Also have asm so don't want to double up with Wilson.

                                          The player I currently have is dcl - but he has spurs away first.

                                          Is mitro a better bet? Or someone else? Thanks

                                            Clearly Wilson for me. But I don't hold with this odd notion that you get an inferior player just because you've got another one.

                                            Thats sounds like a job advertisement! 😆

                                            Dominic is your best shot. Wood can also work but he blanks in GW1. Ayew is another option.

                                            Only other option id consider would be Ayew

                                              Just not sure I want asm and Wilson for the first game.....

                                                Why's that? He's got a tasty GW2. In fact, he's got a superb run of fixtures up to GW15.

                                                    I'm not planning to hold him that long, tbh.

                                                      More focusing on the "superb run to GW15" statement.

                                          If all fit, to start the season:

                                          B) Werner + Barnes

                                          Luiz can't make it right? He will miss some games? Then, who will be Arsenal CB pair? I noticed Holding came on after Mustafi got injured in the Cup semi. Started the final and Community Shield. He will become a good option (with Arteta's improved defense) if he starts games while Luiz is out and Gabriel is settling in.
                                          Thoughts?

                                            Don't need to think. Just been reported above that Holding and Saliba are likely to start.

                                                About an hour ago - or less. Look back 3 or 4 pages here. It was the Daily Mail. I also saw it here linked to a tweet yesterday.

                                                    That's it. I went and put both Holding and Saliba in my starting line-up.

                                          Have seen a lot of No Mo drafts. In a way its fine right because points can come anywhere.
                                          Personally just cant get myself to remove Mo. It is not the Leeds game i am worried about. The games against Arsenal and Chelsea are typical Mo Salah games. He thrives on the space left behind the defences. Hence i think he is in for that run. And then perhaps i will move to Kdb/Sterling.

                                          Thoughts on this??

                                            He's got 30% ownership, so you're basically with the masses.

                                              wouldn't you say the no mo are in the masses? being 70%?

                                            He's in my team and probably capt aswell.

                                            I'm not sold on LFC vs leeds being a route either. Have gone auba cos he has West ham in WK 2 also, then switch to a city mid in 3. No space for Salah at the moment, maybe later if needs must

                                            It’s a matter of Captain picks for me.
                                            It’s either Auba or Salah for me. I like Auba more over the first two so I’m 50/50 on Salah for GW1 as a non captain when I plan to transfer him out for a United player .

                                            Fine line between both strategies. Both can succeed or one of them could horribly fail.

                                            Go with your gut feeling.

                                              I really think no need go with both salah and auba since you can only captain one.

                                              I won't be captaining him so he's out. Chelsea have conceded 1 goal in their last 6 home matches, they're very good at Stamford Bridge. Improvement is also expected with Silva and Kante back at CDM. Arsenal don't give up space behind the defense anymore, Arteta parks the bus against bigger teams. He's done pretty well at it too, beat Liverpool twice, City and Chelsea once. Impressive achievements and now he's getting Gabriel, Saliba and Partey could be added soon too.

                                              Same dilemma (see below) 343 with mitro and Adams with a stronger def or upgrade one to Ings/Martial and sacrifice Egan & Doh for 4.5s

                                                Others would be Ayling, KWP(although dont like Mcarthy double up), Lascelles
