The best goalkeepers for FanTeam’s £1m Premier League Fantasy game


Sponsored by FanTeam


We take a look at the stand-out goalkeeper picks in FanTeam’s £1m season-long Premier League Fantasy game.

FanTeam is essentially paid-entry FPL with huge cash prizes, with a guaranteed prize pool of £1m and £200,000 going to the winner.

There is no catch here, only a €20 entry fee – a payment you’ll make up just by finishing in the top 5,000.

HOW GOALKEEPERS SCORE POINTS

Before we delve into the player pool, here’s how goalkeepers can accrue – and lose – points in FanTeam and how the scoring system differs from FPL:

FanTeamFPL
Playing up to 60 mins+1+1
Playing over 60 mins+2+2
Clean sheets+4+4
Penalty save+5+5
Every two goals conceded-1-1
Saves+0.5 per save+1 every three saves
Bonus+0.3/-0.3 “impact points” if a team is winning/losing when the player is on the pitch+1/2/3 based on Bonus Points System

There are, of course, other ways to gain and lose points such as yellow cards, sendings off, own-goals, goals scored and penalties conceded (we’ll refer you to our ‘How To…’ for more details) but the above table is a good indicator of the main sources of points.

GOALKEEPERS: FPL V FANTEAM

Saves are even more important in FanTeam as every stop is rewarded, rather than multiples of three in FPL.

Take Emiliano Martinez (£5.5m), the highest-scoring goalkeeper in both FanTeam and FPL, as an example: the Villa custodian’s 142 stops were only worth 36 save points in FPL but a massive 71 in FanTeam.

Being on a winning (or at least drawing) side was also key – although the big change for 2021/22 is that players will only get +0.3/-0.3 ‘impact points’, rather +1.0/-1.0 as before.

Here is a selection of the highest-scoring goalkeepers from FanTeam last season and their respective points in FPL:

Player2020/21 FanTeam Points2020/21 FPL Points2021/22 FanTeam Price
Ederson196.5160£6.0m
Martinez195186£5.5m
Lloris173149£5.5m
Meslier168154£5.0m
Alisson162.5140£6.0m
Mendy158140£6.0m
Fabianski155133£5.0m
Schmeichel154128£5.0m
Leno153131£5.0m

What’s striking looking at the goalkeepers in FanTeam is that pretty much all of them outdid their achievements in FPL last season.

The importance of impact points was noticeable when it came to the goalkeepers playing for the bigger clubs. Ederson (£6.0m), for example, made a net profit of 19 points thanks to Manchester City’s title-winning form.

Next season, though, that’ll be less of a factor: Ederson would only accrue 5.7 impact points if he repeats the exact same win/lose ratio in 2021/22.

So premium goalkeepers for the top-performing teams are still better off in FanTeam – but a little less dominant than they were last year.

PLAYERS TO CONSIDER

A lot of the goalkeeper pricing is identical in FanTeam and FPL.

All three of the £6.0m-rated shotstoppers are the same, as is the trio of £5.5m options.

Even among the cheaper custodians, there is little difference – although Wolverhampton Wanderers new-boy Jose Sa (£4.5m) is half a million cheaper than he is in FPL.

Given the strong suggestion that Bruno Lage will bring a more attacking brand of football to Molineux, perhaps that’s more of a sensible figure.

£5.0m and Above

While many of us stick to the cheaper end of the scale in FPL, it’s worth considering a more expensive purchase between the posts in FanTeam.

It’s not just the save and ‘impact’ points but the lack of a Bonus Points System, which the premium goalkeepers tend not to fare well on in FPL because of the free-scoring, chance-creating players in front of them.

Edouard Mendy (£6.0m), for example, boasted Chelsea’s best points-per-match average in FanTeam last season.

FanTeam points per match in 2020/21FPL points per match in 2020/21
Mendy5.14.5
Chilwell4.95.1
Rudiger4.94.9

And Alisson (£6.0m) outscored Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) by over 20 points in FanTeam, which represented a huge swing from the gap in FPL:

FanTeam points in 2020/21FPL points in 2020/21
Alisson162.5140
Robertson150161
Alexander-Arnold142160

Chelsea and Manchester City both had the two best defences in the division last season but languish at the wrong end of the spectrum on the Season Ticker in the opening months of 2021/22.

Martinez has a good chance to get off to another flyer with Aston Villa’s three matches and is an obvious selection for those looking at playing their Wildcard early, as he could be jettisoned thereafter – although his ability to rack up the saves means that hauls could still follow even when the schedule gets worse in Gameweek 4.

Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) is perhaps worthy of consideration for those with a longer-term plan: Everton sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 1-10, meeting just one of the ‘big six’ in that time.

Rafael Benitez’s reputation as a strong starter and savvy organiser is also in Pickford’s favour.

The save-accumulating Illan Meslier (£5.0m) is also worth a look (particularly from Gameweek 5), with Leeds making defensive strides in the second half of 2020/21 and now with a full complement of centre-halves to choose from – something that wasn’t the case for much of last season.

£4.0m-£4.5m Options

There doesn’t seem to be any £4.0m goalkeepers in the running for regular first-team football, although Mark Gillespie (£4.0m) and the unpriced Freddie Woodman may have to deputise in Gameweek 1 with Newcastle’s first two options between the sticks serious doubts.

Robert Sánchez (£4.5m) could provide excellent value and stands out amongst the best budget goalkeeper options.

From Gameweek 13 onwards, only Ederson and Mendy accumulated more clean sheets than the Albion man.

It’s also worth noting that Brighton play only two of last season’s top nine teams in the first eight Gameweeks.

Daniel Bachmann (£4.5m) and Watford also sit high on our Season Ticker early on and the Hornets return to the Premier League on the back of a series of strong defensive displays.

They conceded the fewest goals (30) in the Championship last term, which included 23 clean sheets.

    When does FPL 22/23 open? This season is already turning into a disaster.

      Can't wait, this season is already over for me

      This. I said recently in a post that this fpl season is already the worst ever

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        why??

  2. danlynch13
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Which trio do you guys think is best

    A) Tierney-Fofana-Son

    B) Shaw-Digne-Havertz

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Prefer A, B has a whiff of assisting the assister about it…..

  3. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Ben White added to Arsenal squad list at 4.5m. That’s gold for a top 12 team….

    1. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Value for one of the top defences last term

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Haha Arsenal and defender in the same sentence, that's a no from me

  4. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Yes Benny boy signed the contract and now he is a Red!

    1. Sleepless in Settle FPL

      Who??

      1. moz_1983
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Ben White

  5. sirmorbach
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    So, which of the 4.5 mids and why? Brownhill seems the most likely to deliver an odd assist, but does he play every week? What about Gilmour? Bissouma still the most nailed option?

    1. Brooksy86
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Brownhill is the way... Think McNeil may leave...

  6. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Have Raphinha as my 4th mid.
    Who would you get as a 5th mid to play 352?
    A. Sarr
    B. Harrison
    C. Soucek
    D. ESR

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      A

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      C is a set and forget as his returns are so hard to predict. Depends if you are confident you can just leave him there or if you will get twitchy fingers after a few blanks in a row.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Harrison. I'd be fine with the double-up

    3. ritzyd

      D

    4. Snevitz

      B

  7. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    There’s only really 10 x fwds to chose from - anyone outside of that is punt central…..

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      And I’d say we’re down to 5 x GK tops…

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        And gonna say 15 x defs and 20 x mids, equals 50 x players total. Let’s call it 67 x players worth picking.

        That means 400 x players in the pool ain’t worth exhibiting…

    2. Random Name
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      and they're all budget or mid priced options.

      Put Salah & Bruno in your team then autocomplete and you have every RMT on this website

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        just as i write this. Refer to the 2 RMTs below lmaooo

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Games pointless….every team a combo of around 50-60 players.

          Luckiest picker wins.

          I’m gonna take up KerPlunk, that’s a game of skill…

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            All about captain picks and chip use

          2. circusmonkey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Players will emerge, they always do.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          All of my teams are quite different tbf - e.g my actual team will almost certainly have only one of Bruno/Salah with a fair few differentials thrown in

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Not all cheap. I'd include Vardy, Auba, Laca, Alisson among the 'no one would consider' group.

  8. KAPTAIN KANE

    My first Kaneless draft!

    Bachmann
    Trent | Shaw | Ayling
    Salah | Bruno | Son | Foden | Sarr
    Toney | Pukki

    Foster | Lowton | 4.0 def | 4.5 str

      don't like it at all mate...you've no forwards lol

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yeah just playing around with options, trying something different

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Where's Kane? How much money ITB?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Zero and he’s there in spirit in this one 🙂

    3. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      That's pretty bad to be honest mate ha

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yeah it doesn’t look pretty on paper, but you know what that means…..it will probably score very well!

    4. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Sack Foden, get a 7.5 striker, then you're talking.

  9. Pad Randa (The OG)
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    What do you make of this lot?

    Sanchez - Steele
    TAA - Robbo - Keane - White - Ait Nouri
    Salah - Bruno - Maddison - Buendia - Gilmour
    DCL - Pukki - Toney

    If Grealish makes the switch to City, I'm going to have a hell of a time getting him in, but he will become a priority. Perhaps Pukki + Maddison > fodder and Grealish.

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Keane is a no go for me, Mina Godfrey might be first choice
      Maddison made of glass and Nacho destroys him
      That front line is just awful
      Grealish at City is less appealing, won't play as much etc

    2. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      That's honestly a very poor team posted by a 9 year vet...but that's just my opinion...GL with it!

  10. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Ben White nailed on for 4.5 is gold...but Tierney is only 0.5 million more. Not easy!

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Chambers offers a bit of attacking threat but with less nailed-ness for 4.5 too

      1. BobB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Chambers is absolutely a rotation risk from Soares, and that's assuming Bellerin goes.

        1. BobB
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Plus Saka can play wing-back too

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I might get him as my 5th defender.
      I have Tierney already and did own Lowton as my £4.5m specifically to cover weeks 12 and 14 when Tierney has liv and mun but White seems to have more chance of increasing in value.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Tierney worth the extra 0.5 I reckon but White a great alternative if you don't have the funds.

    Would you BB this?

      Why would you BB the first week?

        get it out of the way...don't rate the chip at all, only hinders your team in second half of season imho

        1. Pad Randa (The OG)
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          So you'd rather waste it at a time where rotations aren't set yet and there's a decent chance one of your players will blank? Save it for a DGW...

            you save yours and the best of luck with it...you'll likely waste it too and weaken your team in the surrounding GWs 😉

            I'm going without Bruno & Salah for the season just to add some spice (hence my 'The No BS League')

              Out of curiosity why Bruno and Salah in particular? Surely just means you just pick Kane and KDB as the season goes on

    £6.5m and a good chance to start and make an impression for the new boss.

      Nice, could be a steal.

  15. Flynny

    Who would you rather start the season with please?

    A...sarr in a 343

    B...digne and 0.5m in a 433

    Digne seems the better option - but just concerned with a lack of flex if I start the season with 2 x 4.5m mids......thanks

      B, Watford didn't score that many last year.

    Had Ben White for a while so now got an Arsenal quartet of Lacazette, Pepe, White & Tierney for when they thrash Brentford.

    4-0 and 4,000 IQ

      That’s a smart strategy. I’ve got TAA, Robertson, Salah and Pogba (for when he joins Liverpool)

        spot on, just have to hope all the players in my team stay fit cos i cant make another transfer

      What happens with that? Does it stick until you make a transfer?

    Is Llorente likely to be a starting CB for Leeds this season? Currently have him as rotating 4.5m defender and fancy something different compared to Ayling.

    1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I spent the better part of a week on this question. After looking at all the underlying numbers, I concluded that I was just trying to be cute by picking him over Ayling and thought better of it.

      Of course I've completely reallocated my budget since then and put an extra 0.5 into the slot to get to Coufal.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yes he will start but he's injury prone so personally I'd avoid.

    3. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'm personally going Llorente, it's not cute it's just an informed decision and it's only a 4.5m defender.

      you can slice a block of cheese but you can't really block a slice of cheese

        Ah the wheel. That is a good answer.

    Quick question, please suggest...

    1) Antonio or Dominic Calvert
    2) Bowen, Smith-rowe or Harrison

    Have 14m in the bank for a striker and midfield

  21. Wild Guus Chase

    Is Moise Kean any threat to DCL in the opening few games? Is DCL even back in training yet?

    1. Fatboy_Slim
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No DCL is not training yet...I had him as well but switched to Antonio as I am looking at the recruitment at Everton, and with Demarai Gray and Townsend, and sirgudsson out, I don't think he will get enough service...the team is average upfront... no richarlison either

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Possibly. Didn't really show it in his first season at Everton but Kean is a good player. Wouldn't be crazy for Benitez to start him in GW1 while DCL gets back up to speed.

    If City sign Grealish, will they sign Kane as well?

      No FairPlay will stop them

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          They would have to intervene, otherwise what’s the point?
          Maybe they could if they sold KdB and another big name

          1. Jafooli

            Man City accountants look at FairPlay as a clog filled with yogurt

              £200m+ becomes a materiality issue that cannot be fudged though, on 2 players

      Chelsea didn't seem to have an issue spending 200 plus million.

    Is Mason Mount value at 7.5? Rarely seems to be rotated.

    1. Fatboy_Slim
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Except him nobody is nailed on at Chelsea upfront...so I'd say not bad...but at 7.5 you could get better options

    2. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      think there are better options at a cheaper price than Mount...I'd prefer to spend the extra mill on Havertz if wanting CHE attack

    3. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Got him. High season long floor of 150 points. I reckon he'll push on to 10 goals 10 assists this season. Steady contribution.

  24. Fatboy_Slim
    • 4 Years

    please suggest...

    1) Antonio or Dominic Calvert

  25. Inazuma X1

    For GW1 - who to play?

    1. White v BRE (H)
    2. Stones v TOT (A)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      2

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Cheers - you reckon they'll keep a clean sheet?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          As likely too as Arsenal but Stones has more goal threat than Ben White (3 goals in over 150 appearances)

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Gotcha - thanks

    2. Pjanić! at the Džeko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Don't quote me on this, but I'd be leaning towards Stones just because we know with metaphysical certitude that Kane isn't playing in week one.

      Further, wasn't Brentford known for being a more attacking side? Also, if any newly promoted team is going to come out buzzing, you'd think it would be Brentford.

      It's a coin flip to me, I just wanted to make the Bees/buzzing pun.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Brentford will struggle in the PL imo and I am worried about Son tbh

        1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          You're asking a GW1 question and it's a close call. I don't know if Brentford's season long performance is a major point of consideration . . . they aren't going to have "first week ever in the Prep" energy every week, and Arsenal very well could come out flat depending on how well they've gelled over preseason with whatever latecomers from summer tournaments are involved.

          Could Son conceivably score? Sure. That's why we don't bank on teams getting 38 clean sheets a season.

          When in doubt, go with the team playing at home I suppose.

  26. Pjanić! at the Džeko
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Quick question . . .

    Are you adjusting your projections for Ben White now that he's signed with Arsenal. If so, up or down and by what percentage. The projections page hasn't switched him over to Arsenal yet and has him projected for 98 points over the course of the season.

    Does the move to Arsenal cause a recalibration or not?

    1. Random Name
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      he scored 104pts for Brighton and they kept 12 clean sheets. I'm not sure if Arsenal get many more than 12 this season

      1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        So basically he's the same guy in a different shirt. That's the conclusion I keep reaching, but it's always nice to hear someone else say it.

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yes, 43% by my mathematical calculations.

      1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thanks for using a number that's absurd enough to make sure I understand you're joking around. Otherwise I'd have to spend the rest of my days hunting you down.

  27. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Why is Ben White only 4.5?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Was priced 4.5 for Brighton

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Oh

    2. Random Name
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Because FPL tower seem to be clueless right now and haven't properly refreshed or adjusted the game for over 5 years

    3. Alisson WondHaaland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      4.5 is a reasinable price for a low goal threat centre back in an average defence

      1. Pjanić! at the Džeko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Which means that he's priced correctly for Arsenal too in your opinion?

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah

      2. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Imagine him going to a top 6 side. In that case he would have been a bargain though

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Another reason to not launch the game so early.

      1. Openboxman
        • 2 Years

        Yes I am, I'm hoping he's a regular

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Not sure if he will be tbh. Starting XI looks good apart from him.
          Too much money on the bench though.

          1. Openboxman
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Tbh, I'm planning to bench boost very early, I've tried to plan it every year and it's failed.

            Going for a different tactic
