Allsvenskan Fantasy – Midfielders

Midfielders in Allsvenskan Fantasy can be tough to nail down, as the bonus point system means some players like Sebastian Larsson (10.0m) can be a lot less reliant on goals and assists than the likes of Jo Inge Berget (9.0m) for points. The Scout tries to alleviate this pain by taking a look at midfielder options, ranging from budget to premium.

    Brilliant Petter thanks. There’s a heck of a lot of choice in the middle. That said, your article has helped confirm in my mind the way I’m going to start off. I’m still favouring a 5-4-1 with just one big hitter for the first six GWs that being Haksa who I can see giving the armband to for the first six until the DGW.

    It does mean that my frontline is perhaps the worst ever seen in fantasy Allsvenskan so your next article may convince me to re-shape.

    At the moment I’m set up as:

    Oscar Jansson

    J. Larsson, Witry, Bjornstrom, Ahmedhodzic, Joel Nilsson

    Haksabanovic, Alm, Heintz, Chilufya

    Blair Turgott

    Bench: Gal – Yusuf, Silverholt, Alex Johansson

    Like I said, thinner than my balding head up front but I like the value at the back and in the middle and we have time before the DGW to see which Malmo have the form and game-time for the double.

    Feel free to rip it to shreds mate, your comments are always welcome.

      Soo much choice haha, been jumping around a lot personally. I think the only ones I have some doubts about there are Turgott and if Ahmedhodzic really can deliver 7.5m worth of points. Same could be said for Björnsström but he does not impact the team overall as much. I like Edvardsen, Abraham, Koukou, Hümmet more at the bargain price tbh if that's where you're looking for the front line 🙂 But I'll have a look more deeply tonight and tomorrow probably, finishing up the forwards!

    So many options to choose from. Thanks for the compilation, Meltens. There is much to consider.

      Cheers, who are you on right now?

        Haksa and Chilifuya are nailed. Then I am wavering between Alm, Sana, Amoo, Heintz. I am risking it going without AC, but with the price hike it is difficult to have Haksa and AC without weakening the team. If Hamsik too starts producing it will be tricky.

          I feel AC is about 1 million too highly priced tbh, Haksa seems the clear front runner and having both kills the team imo. I'd say it's one of AC, Hamsik and Haksa and for the first 6 or so GWs it's Haksa for me.

          I have a hard time reading Sana. People are understandably looking quite favourable at him given pens, set pieces, sometimes OOP and most of all, bonus. I just never really feel like he's a goal and assist kind of guy in general. He's in for now but also looking a lot at Bengtsson at that price.

            For me, Sana is kind of a place holder for a DGW player. In his favor are the opening fixtures and set pieces. However, then there is Hamsik who many speculate may take a substantial share, which will reduce Sana’s appeal.

    https://twitter.com/FF_Meltens/status/1379883392267878403?s=20 have a listen to the pre-season pod of the lads at Nordic Football, great in-depth walkthrough of all the teams in Allsvenskan (all in English).

    Another great article, a lot of food for thought here. Still on the 5-4-1, unchanged for a good week or so now, so will likely start with the same squad.

      Cheers mate! 🙂
      What defenders are you on?
      The only issue I have with a 5-4-1 is I'm guessing you have pretty bad bench strikers? If your one and only strikers miss out for whatever reason, they need to come in as no mids or defs can cover that position. Always a risk with the 1 striker formation I feel.

      1. Eytexi
        • 3 Years

        J.Larsson, Witry, Nilsson, Jallow, Knudsen.

        Hit the nail on the head there mate, 2x 4.0m forwards on the bench along with Carlén for the security of starts. For now, at least, I feel confident enough that Jeremejeff will start that I'm not sure it's worth the money to upgrade to another starting striker. Especially with forwards dropping down to 4m minimum, they're effectively worth another 0.5m in comparison to a midfielder (i.e.owning a 6.5m striker takes up as much funds as a 7m midfielder, assuming the other is fodder).

        Of course there's always a risk of knock/COVID-related absence, but even shuffling funds around for a cheap playing forward I wouldn't be certain they score more than 2 pointa on any given gameweek. Not seeing a lot of good value. Would be frustrating if this formation resulted in a 10-man GW, but can't seeing it being hugely detrimental to my season.

        Now I've said that, watch out for a Jeremejeff late injury & Silverholt hattrick this weekend, haha.

    Is there any fixture ticker for Allsvenskan to be found anywhere?

    Another quality post with loads of helpful information to chew on. (I may not play Allsvenskan but still!)

    Question here for you Meltens about someone you might know a bit about, new Rosenborg signing Stefano Vecchia.

    Looks like a goal-scoring winger but just how highly rated was he in Sweden? Should we be looking at him as a nailed starter for Rosenborg who should be in our teams at all cost or do you think he shouldn't be turning too many heads just yet?

    Cheers!

      Thanks mate!
      I’m not aware of the situation at Rosenberg with competition for spots so I can only say what I know from Allsvenskan - he shoots a bizzare amount of shots (like 3+ a game) and most of them are actually quite good. It would help to know what he costs but he was absolutely nailed for all active managers halfway through the season last time around and a good captaincy shout even. I think he will continue to do well but if he’s rotated and/or pricy that might be an issue of course

        Main competition will be from Carlo Holse if Rosenborg are going to play him on the right wing. From what I know about Vecchia, that's his preferred flank and as he's a newly signed attacking player, I'd say that's exactly where he goes when he plays.
        That is somewhat a bit confusing as Holse was one of Rosenborg's best players at times and he really does not deserve to lose his place.
        Unless either Holse/Vecchia can play on the left, that would mean Ceide keeps his place and. They're all similarly priced (Vecchia 9.5, Ceide 8.5 and Holse 8) and seeing as Ceide has been bumped up a bit that makes me inclined to think Holse would be the one to make way, or at least that's what ESF would be thinking.

        9.5m for an accomplished player at one of the best clubs in the league doesn't sound like a bad move but until we see a few games it would feel like a gamble.

        One to consider at least! If you had said "takes too many shots, not that great, wouldn't go near" then I'd be more than happy to ignore him. But based on your response he's definitely one to watch and now that Rosenborg are free of Adegbenro, Helland and Asen, it should be much easier for their attacking players to play without too much distraction.

        Cheers and good luck with Allsvenskan!

    Thanks melten for the articles so far, have followed your tips and enjoy reading your write up, it's very clear and concise.

    Hacken and Degersfors looks exciting to invest with a fair bit of value for attack, I have jeremejeff and heintz, saidi and abraham. What are some differentials people are doing?

      Cheers! 🙂 Differentials just came up by Gerardo, look below 🙂

      Just be aware of Saidi probably not starting at all times so have some cover there. I’ve gone super heavy on Degerfors attack so completely with you there.
