FPL 2022/23 prices released: Friday round-up – Haaland’s price revealed

The long-awaited relaunch of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) for 2022/23 looks to be drawing ever closer as the first batch of player prices were released on Friday.

Arsenal were first off the rank, with Manchester City, Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion and Leeds United following in their wake.

KEY TALKING POINTS

MANCHESTER CITY

Erling Haaland has entered FPL at probably the lowest price we could have expected, being listed as an £11.5m forward after his move to Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund.

That’s the same price that was handed to Romelu Lukaku upon his transfer to Chelsea last summer and a full million short of what Cristiano Ronaldo was initially listed as after his move to Manchester United.

He’s not even the most expensive City asset, with Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) remaining unchanged after a barnstorming end to 2021/22 in which he delivered 21 attacking returns in 20 appearances.

There was no doubt that Joao Cancelo (£7.0m) was going to be handed a price rise after a 201-point campaign in which he started out at a now-unthinkable £6.0m. He actually finished last season at £7.2m after experiencing the highest start-to-finish climb of any FPL defender in the game.

There were eight other City players priced up by FPL Towers on Friday.

Bar De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling (£10.0m), who may be on his way out of the club if rumours are to be believed, there are no City midfielders who will cost you more than £8.0m.

The starting prices of Phil Foden (£8.0m), Ilkay Gundogan (£7.5m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.0m) haven’t changed, while Jack Grealish (£7.0m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.0m) have actually dropped one million pounds from last summer.

At the back, Kyle Walker comes in at an eye-catching £5.0m, although the possible arrival of Marc Cucurella and the England international’s advancing years are obvious downsides with the 32-year-old right-back, who made only 20 league starts in 2021/22.

We don’t yet have a price for Aymeric Laporte but Ruben Dias is listed at £6.0m and is a non-mover from last season.

ARSENAL

There’s an expected rise for Bukayo Saka after his stellar 2021/22 campaign, with the winger’s starting price climbing from £6.5m to £8.0m.

Fellow attackers Eddie Nketiah (£7.0m), Emile Smith Rowe (£6.0m), Gabriel Martinelli (£6.0m) and Martin Odegaard (£6.5m) have also unsurprisingly risen in price.

Aaron Ramsdale is no longer the £4.5m bargain he was last August, although has only been handed a modest increase to £5.0m.

There are some Arsenal assets who have escaped a price rise despite their value-for-money performances in the season just gone.

The stand-out name is Ben White, who holds steady at £4.5m despite a very decent campaign in which he banked 13 clean sheets.

Fellow defenders Gabriel Magalhaes (£5.0m), Kieran Tierney (£5.0m) and Takehiro Tomiyasu (£4.5m) are also frozen in price.

New signing Fabio Vieirasupplier of 20 attacking returns in 27 league appearances for Porto in 2021/22 – has been given a starting price of £6.0m on his FPL debut, meanwhile.

The signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City has yet to be officially rubber-stamped, so we await a price on the Brazilian.

BRENTFORD

David Raya will be staking an early claim as many FPL managers’ set-and-forget goalkeeper after being priced up at £4.5m.

Raya boasted the joint-fourth-best points-per-match average (4.0) among first-choice shotstoppers last season, with his achievements perhaps going unnoticed thanks to a mid-season injury.

Brentford don’t meet one of last season’s top four until Gameweek 12, while Manchester City, Spurs and Liverpool aren’t concerns until November onwards.

Ivan Toney is marginally up to £7.0m after finishing fifth for points among FPL forwards in 2021/22. A penalty-taking striker who didn’t get substituted once last season will have his admirers, especially with the aforementioned good early fixture run.

Brentford’s price reveals also gave us our first positional changes of the summer, with Bryan Mbeumo (£6.0m) now a forward and Sergi Canos (£5.0m) becoming a defender. Both reclassifications came about thanks to Thomas Frank’s use of a 3-5-2 for much of the season (Mbeumo up front, Canos at wing-back) but the Brentford boss chiefly used a 4-3-3 for the final 12 Gameweeks, with Mbeumo employed as a right-winger.

Elsewhere, defenders Pontus Jansson, Kristoffer Ajer, Rico Henry and Ethan Pinnock join Raya in remaining at £4.5m. Jansson clocked up seven attacking returns last season, a tally only beaten by five FPL defenders – all of them more expensive attacking full/wing-backs like Cancelo.

Midfielders Vitaly Janelt, Christian Norgaard and Yoane Wissa are handed £5.5m starting prices, with Wissa an interesting proposition if Frank continues with his 4-3-3 set-up. Wissa banked six attacking returns in the final nine Gameweeks of 2021/22, with the change in shape allowing him more starting opportunities.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

The price reveals for Brighton may not attract many headlines but there are handful of intriguing names and prices to pick out.

Marc Cucurella at £5.0m is worth monitoring if a reported move to Manchester City materialises: like Walker, he’d be £2.0m cheaper than Cancelo. Cucurella was a bonus-collecting machine in 2021/22, with only four defenders racking up more bonus points than his 21 across the campaign.

Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez remains at £4.5m while centre-half Lewis Dunk drops to the same rung, his lowest starting price since 2019/20. Dunk found the back of the net just once last season but had delivered a combined 11 attacking returns across his previous two campaigns.

While there might not be many takers in the injury-prone Danny Welbeck and the profligate Neal Maupay at £6.5m, the listing of fellow forward Deniz Undav at £5.5m is something to keep an eye on during pre-season. The German striker was the leading goalscorer in the Belgian top tier in 2021/22, hitting 25 goals in 33 appearances. Whilst there has to be a healthy does of scepticism about the standard of opposition he faced, Albion’s recruitment has been pretty good for the past few years (Mac Allister, Cucurella, Caicedo, Mwepu etc) and he’s one for the watchlist.

Pascal Gross (£5.5m), Leandro Trossard (£6.5m), Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m), Moises Caicedo (£5.0m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) round off the Brighton player price reveals, with Trossard sadly but entirely expectedly not the subject of a positional reclassification despite his late-season stint as a free-scoring wing-back.

LEEDS UNITED

The fifth team of the day to reveal a priced-up XI were Leeds.

Any hopes that an injury-ravaged 2021/22 campaign would lead to a significant price drop for Patrick Bamford (£7.5m) were dashed as the perma-crocked striker was listed only half a million cheaper than he was 12 months ago.

There’s also disappointent for those FPL managers who were hoping the Danish Matt Doherty would come in at £4.5m: goalscoring wing-back Rasmus Kristensen makes his debut as a £5.0m defender, instead.

Fellow summer recruit, attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson, is priced up at £5.5m, while another new arrival, defensive shield Marc Roca, is £5.0m.

Illan Meslier (£4.5m), Robin Koch (£4.5m) and Liam Cooper (£4.5m) are cheaper routes than Kristensen into a fairly ropey Leeds backline, while Daniel James (£6.0m) and Jack Harrison (£6.0m) are the same price as they were before 2021/22 got underway.

Joe Gelhardt (£5.5m) is no longer to be found at the bottom of the forwards’ bargain bin, while Rodrigo (£6.0m) has been reclassified as a midfielder and drops half a million.

Raphinha is conspicuous by his absence, with the Brazilian seemingly set for a move away from Elland Road.

    the third best thing on this site was the fixture ticker and it's just been made worse 🙁

      What happened to it ?

          Can't delete gameweeks out of it, not sure if that's been made a solely premium feature

          Can no longer change the number of GWs you view at one time.
          Can't rate by difficulty of 'relative difficulty'.

            Oh damn that was actually really useful you could even look the next 1 game week

            1. Brimble82
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              I think 5GWs is a good bearing to work off, but I'd often then cross-ref that against a longer 10-12 GW window.

              Not the end of the world tbf

      2. Brimble82
        • 5 Years

        Yeah, I don't understand why you would reduce functionality.
        Seems counter intuitive.

        1. Piggs Boson
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          It's still the same in the member's area, so assume they've now locked full functionality behind a paywall.

        2. Wild Rover
          • 13 Years

          To encourage more memberships probably.

          Acknowledge you need to give reason why you pay rather than just peruse, but surely a better model is to develop better content for your paying members rather than to reduce the quality of experience for your non-paying members?

      I'm wondering if the low prices have anything to do with the 5 subs rule coming in? I know that having 5 subs makes it more likely that a player will come on for a 1 pt cameo, but I wonder if they are trying to give us more options each week within our own teams without having to make a transfer?

      1. mox81
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I'm not confident they will, but 5 subs would be a great mechanic to stretch the difference between the "all you money on the pitch" and a strong squad approach

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Been about 10 players so far ‘underpriced’ according to ffs comments

      You can’t have them all and if everyone is Under priced then no one is underpriced I guess

      Either way should still be plenty of variety in teams

      1. mox81
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Totally agree. Template was too strong last season

      2. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        My issue is with strikers generally not really being viable over other positions. There's a huge gap in value. I hope there's a change in the scoring, because there doesn't seem to be one in the pricing.

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I agree, I think they should have left the likes of Toney at 6.5

          1. mox81
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Yeah most likely a 4.5 fwd 3rd bench for me. Jesus could be good. KdB being more than Haaland is interesting, don't anticipate Kane being more than Son now.

      3. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Undervaluing makes it easy to have multiple premiums though so less variety.
        No more 'Salah or Haaland' type dilemmas because it should be easy to get them both now so everyone will.

        1. Alexis Nonsense
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I think it will be enough variety, cause Haaland won't play all games, Son/Kdb/Kane etc. could easily be a better options as premiums...

    4. LangerznMash
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Haaland ownership going to be 90% at only £11.5.
      Grealish @ £7.0 seems crazy low too as he will play a bigger role with Jesus and Sterling going.

      Why would anyone look at players from bottom half teams when you can get 'big 6' players so cheap??
      Arsenal GK + Def for just £9.5 is nailed on template with their opening fixtures.

      I think everyone will end up with a full 15 man squad (no fodder) to rotate based on fixtures.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        It won’t be 90% it will be around 50-60 at most

        1. LangerznMash
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Pretty much all the teams posted on here have Haaland and the casuals will be all over him simply because he is the main striker in the team that scores the most goals.

      2. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I've got a Starting Lineup of 11 from the Top 5, but I do need a bench from the lower orders.

        1. LangerznMash
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I probably will have too. I was initially going to have Harrison and a 4.5 GK as budget enablers but that won't be necessary with all these undervalued players.
          I was already considering Grealish and Martinelli and they are now a million cheaper than I expected,

      3. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Grealish was much better as a big fish in a small pond. Now he's just one of many really good players at Man City. He needs to start scoring more regularly for me to contemplate him.

    5. Chilli Heatwave
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Completely missed Sanchez being 4.5, that’s my gk sorted unless I have some left over budget

      1. No Professionals
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        probably be able to afford Alisson and Ederson as rotating keepers at this rate.

      2. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        There will be quite a clutch of decent 4.5s. making rotation feasible. I'm thinking Raya, Sanchez, Henderson and Johnstone at least.

      3. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Newly promoted keepers 4.0m each.
        Chilwell and James 5.5m
        Jesus 10.0m
        Wilson 8.0m
        Bamford 7.5m
        Nunez 11.0m

        1. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          where is this from?

          1. Piggs Boson
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            My salt shaker.

            It's just me making a point about how ludicrous striker prices compare. Chilwell and James will likely outscore all those strikers, and you watch how many millions will separate them when their prices are released. Ludicrous really.

            Anyway, enough shouting at clouds. I'm going to hit the shower and go to the pub...

      4. Ser Davos
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Taxes, death and a widespread ownership of a 4.5 Brighton goalkeeper every pre-season

    6. Mings the Merciless
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I understand the comments about underpricing of players, but I also remember the same last season when Shaw and Digne’s prices came in. That didn’t work out so well for any of us…

      1. Now I'm Panicking
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Eugh - Shaw (shudders)

        1. Brimble82

          THIS

            • 11 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Alright, I did start with Shaw and Maguire last time, but this time on;y sure-fire dead certs!

            1. Mings the Merciless

              1 year, 11 months ago

              I can't complain, my GW1 score was triple figure - but Shaw's 1ptr in my backline blocked 2x 6pt defenders coming off my bench!

              I WC'd him out in GW5!

            3. Mings the Merciless
              • 5 Years

              🙂 I’ll do the same. We can’t fail

          He should in theory be 4.5 this season!

            • 5 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Just looked... 46 pts!
            £4.5m could be generous!

        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Agree, and when Werner was essential and 45% owned at the start of the season before

        People even saying toney is a season keeper at 7m when he nicknamed ‘2ney’ for most of the season on here, short memories indeed

        yeah also remember Pulisic a couple of years ago came in at 8 i think and there was a mini meltdown because he was so cheap, then they changed it to 8.5 saying 8 was a typo, then he ended up being a useless pick anyway lol

        1. Darwin von Humboldt
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Is "useless pick" a typo? 😀

            • 6 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            don't think so 🙂

            "useless"

            adjective

            not fulfilling or not expected to achieve the intended purpose or desired outcome.

        Remember the team that was winning GW1 had treble captained Shaw (must have been a multiple account or something dodgy) lol.

    7. Berkshire Hafaway-Line
      • 3 Years

      It is believed that Salah signed the three year contract once FPL released the City squad prices and he was satisfied that he would be the most valuable player in the game.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years

        I thought the timing was significant.

      Haaland at 11.5 makes the game a 14 man game then

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Cancelo at 7 makes it 13

      Mahrez at 8m could be an explosive pick if you time it right

      1. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        This is how I will be starting however I think Haaland and Jesus will be a very popular front two.

      5-4-1 with Haaland then isn't it.

        Unless there's an equivalent of Antonio from last year.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Unless there’s some surprises in store with a cheap forward (thinking vardy) then it will be looking that way for me

      3. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Looks like that's how I'm starting

      4. Yome
        • 12 Years

        4-5-1 for me

      5. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        undervalued premium GK
        TAA, Robbo, Cancelo, Chilwell, James
        2 x premium mids, Grealish, Martinelli
        Haaland
        (4.0 and 3 x undervalued 4.5s)

        1. Brimble82
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          This looks lovely, but would it not come in hot?
          I factor that you only have approx £20m for your 2x Premium MIDs - who are you thinking in those slots?

            The maths is out here. I'd say the nearest you can do is in this vicinity:

            Ramsdale 5.0 4m
            TAA Robbo Cancelo 7.0 James 6.5 Chilwell 6.0
            Salah Grealish 7.0 Martinelli 6.0 5.5m 4.5
            Haaland (4.5m) 4.5

            Might extra 1m if Chelsea cheaper

    15. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • 7 Years

      Don't really get what they meant by making defenders cheaper and lower tier forwards more expansive. Thought it would be the other way around.

      1. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        They must be changing the scoring system. Only way these prices make sense...

      2. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Waiting for all the prices to be revealed and optimizer to do his thing though. We'll see if optimal formation will change or not.

      3. Klaren
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Defenders are still not really that cheap given the higher number of premiums this season than recent times.

        Lower tier forwards being more expensive is probably to make the premium forwards more appealing in relation and create more variety in formations.

      Hi

    18. Deulofail
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Andy thinks Saka (and maybe Jesus) are nailed on for every game, regardless of who else might come in during the Summer window. I'm hoping a lot of people get sucked into this 2020/21 thinking and overvalue the 'safety' of Saka's minutes, especially.

      Arsenal fan, so I love the guy, but he's hardly prolific. Jesus can play on the right, and another attacking signing could easily see Saka being the worst-value Arsenal first-teamer. He'll definitely get fewer minutes this season, but who knows, maybe he and the team improve enough to counterbalance this and more so as to match his 8.0 valuation.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I was going to have NKetiah, but Jesus’ imminent arrival has tempered my enthusiasm somewhat for that now.

        1. Deulofail
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I'm still tempted. He could still get enough goals to justify the price tag, and might even be a starter to begin the season. Lots of time, changes and prices to consider still though

      2. Eze Really?
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        One of the few players I think Pep held back was Jesus. Agree with all you say about Saka. Martinelli might be a bargain.

        1. Deulofail
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I'll be tempted to play around with both Martinelli and ESR in my team. They might both have enough minutes to contribute, or I can sell the one if they are not getting on the pitch enough.

      3. lugs
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        whoever has pens is the answer, nobody will own Saka if its Martinelli at 2m cheaper, but if Saka keeps them then he is worth 8m imo

      5. Grande Tubarão

        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Not sure who Andy is but it’s not the boldest of claims to suggest Saka’s nailed. He is Arsenal’s best player. That being said I still think your conclusion’s correct - I think there could be better value elsewhere in the Arsenal side (I’m not concerned about his minutes at all though).

        1. Deulofail
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          You think Saka would be nailed if, for example, Raphinha came in to play RW? Sorry, but that's bonkers. The whole point of competition is to compete. A Raphinha-type signing wouldn't be backup.

          1. Grande Tubarão
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            I think you’re either massively underestimating Saka or massively overestimating Arsenal if you think he spends any more time off the pitch than is absolutely necessary for him to rest and be full fit.

            1. Deulofail
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              You think Saka would be nailed if, for example, Raphinha came in to play RW?

              1. Grande Tubarão

                • 2 Years
                1 year, 11 months ago

                Yeah. I think they’d find a way to accommodate them both. Saka’s fairly versatile too.

                1. Deulofail
                  • 8 Years
                  1 year, 11 months ago

                  Well I think the majority of Arsenal fans and reporters would disagree with you there. ESR and Martinelli both starting 0 games in the PL this season would be an unforgivable failure of management.

    19. Q
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Hey peeps. So with some unexpected price reveals, especially for defenders, do we think a change in points scoring is coming?

      1. lugs
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        hope so, its weighted too heavily for defenders atm, a cs is basically the same as a goal for forwards but for a much cheaper price

      2. Darwin von Humboldt
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I doubt it, but hope there's a change or two.

        200k. Same as Rashford.

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I just read 350K p/w. A decent compromise from the 400K her asked for.

          1. Grande Tubarão
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Oh, this must be the new contract then I think.

            1. Grande Tubarão
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              Completely missed that he’d signed a new one

      2. lilmessipran
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Think he was on 220 before this, was asking for 380 and finally settled with 350

    22. SADIO SANÉ
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Probably deluding myself in ignoring the clear rotation threat with ESR, but if Martinelli is the Arsenal pen taker then 6.0 is a ridiculous price, just 1.5m more than Romeu and co 😀 Martinelli 6.0 > Haaland 11.5 😆

      1. Deulofail
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Could be Vieira if he's on the pitch

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          15/15 on transfermarkt so could be ... I said anything under 8m was a bargain for Martinelli the other day, that's going a bit too far maybe but genuinely thought he'd be 7.5 ish - kinda Chelsea winger type prices from last season

          1. Deulofail
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            I was expecting 6.5, but he hasn't proven to be anywhere near as prolific as his competition, ESR. I suppose the low price reflects that. Prices aren't based so much on prediction and projection, as that's our job. Good chance he'll start the season in my team, but I was hoping he would be a trap at a slightly higher price.

    23. Klaren
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      One factor to consider for the cheaper defender prices is the risk of increased early sub threat from the 5 sub rule.

      We can see quite a few 1 pointers from Cancelo, TAA, Robertson etc with an early 2nd half sub during congested fixtures now that managers have the luxury to rest half their team in comfortable wins.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        think they still have to make only 3 sets of substitutions, so assuming most will still make it to 60 - which does mean the classic clean-sheet-substitution-just-before-team-concedes scenario will happen more often 😀

        can't wait for my Tomiyasu clean sheet whilst Gabriel owners are left crying with his 1-pointer

        1. Klaren
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Not if they make it on 59th minute though 🙂

          It was quite annoying in UCL fantasy last season as it happened quite often. Hopefully we don't see it as often in PL next season.
