Is there any merit to a Brighton triple-up in FPL?

From data analysis to personal stories, the Community Articles section of Fantasy Football Scout is home to some thought-provoking, user-penned pieces.

In the article below, AlexHCAFC discusses Brighton and Hove Albion players and the pros and cons of an early triple-up.


Brighton and Hove Albion were one of the Premier League’s great success stories last season, with Graham Potter and then Roberto De Zerbi playing eye-catching brands of football.

The Seagulls ended with a club-record sixth-placed finish and a first-ever European campaign to look forward to.

They also generated some fantastic Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bargains along the way.

Kaoru Mitoma (now £6.5m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£6.0m) started the season at £5.0m and £5.5m respectively, and became two of the great enablers, each achieving over 130 points. Goalkeepers Robert Sanchez (£4.5m) and Jason Steele (£4.5m) were both favourites with FPL managers when first-choice picks for the Seagulls, while many turned to defender Pervis Estupiñan (£5.0m) during Brighton’s hectic end-of-season schedule.

BRIGHTON TRIPLE-UP: REASONS TO BE FEARFUL

Brighton triple-up

Despite Estupiñan and Mitoma being heavily owned at currently 51.4% and 37.5% respectively, the mood is one of caution around Brighton players this season for several reasons.

Firstly, the generous FPL pricing simply means many people are looking instead at “big six” assets.

Secondly, De Zerbi loves to tinker with his squad and make an early substitution; an FPL manager’s nightmare.

For example, you could make a case that Evan Ferguson (£6.0m), Danny Welbeck (£6.0m), Denis Undav (£5.5m) and possibly new signing João Pedro (£5.5m) are competing for one striker spot. It’s unclear what minutes emerging stars Julio Enciso (£5.5m) and Facundo Buonanotte (£5.0m) will get and crucially, in what roles. The loss of Mac Allister and potentially Moises Caicedo (£5.0m) could also affect the likes of Pascal Groβ (£6.5m), who is likely to take up either a deeper midfield or right-back role.

Finally, Brighton’s Europa League campaign will only further this rotation, and we don’t know what players De Zerbi will favour in Europe or in the Premier League.

But here’s why you shouldn’t write off the Seagulls from your FPL plans too soon.

BRIGHTON TRIPLE-UP: REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL

FPL 2023/24: How to use Season Ticker 5

Brighton’s first three fixtures are incredible: Luton Town (H), Wolverhampton Wanderers (A) and West Ham United (H). As much as we love the Luton story, you can’t ask for a better opening fixture. Wolves scored the fewest goals in the Premier League last season, while Brighton are undefeated in 12 Premier League meetings with West Ham.

Furthermore, the concerns over Europa League rotation don’t begin until after Gameweek 5.

There’s no escaping the fact that, from Gameweek 4 onwards, Brighton face six of last season’s top 10 in their subsequent seven games.

Albion players look very much like short-term picks, then, but as we’ll see, that may work to your advantage.

STAND-OUT BRIGHTON PICKS

Brighton triple-up

As known quantities in such an unclear picture, it’s easy to see why Estupiñan and Mitoma are so popular.

Solly March (£6.5m) is less so, with his place in the team more likely under threat. That threat could come from Enciso and Buonanotte, who could very easily become ‘template’ selections should their minutes and form be strong. We saw glimpses at the end of last season and with Mac Allister gone and European fixtures to contend with, their influence should only increase. However, I will stay clear until that becomes known.

If we have reason to believe Ferguson is the clear first choice to start the season, I love him as an early option. The Irish youngster averaged a goal every 158 minutes last season, so if (and it’s a big if) we expect him to start and play over 60 minutes early on, he could well be a shrewd selection, given the reservations over other striker options.

Especially with that Wolves game in mind, a defensive double-up of Estupiñan and Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) is also worth consideration – if you can fit both in ahead of the sea of premium defensive options.

Elsewhere, the goalkeeper situation is slightly unclear, with Bart Verbruggen (£4.5m) joining to compete with Steele and Sanchez, but if a clear number one emerges, it’s difficult to say no at that price.

WRITER’S DRAFT

FPL review: £4.5m forward Ferguson, Patterson injury 1

I currently have a draft with three Brighton players – Estupiñan, Mitoma, and Ferguson – and have left £2.0m in the bank.

So you might be wondering why I don’t do, say, Mitoma to Bruno Fernandes (£8.5m) or Ferguson to Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m). What the Brighton triple-up gives me is not only some great fixtures to start the season but also a huge amount of flexibility with my first transfers. For instance, Chelsea’s fixtures pick up from Gameweek 3, so I can easily move from Estupiñan to Reece James (£5.5m).

We always bring a player into our teams in the opening weeks that we never would’ve expected and staggering my midfield prices with Mitoma allows me to easily bring in sub-£8.0m midfielder after a few weeks if needed; I’ve currently got my eyes on James Maddison (£7.5m), Raheem Sterling (£7.0m), and Luis Diaz (£7.5m) for that spot.

I’m also planning to assess Christopher Nkunku (£7.5m) and Darwin Núñez (£7.5m) in the opening couple of weeks. They face each other on the opening day and Brighton’s early fixtures make Ferguson the perfect placeholder to make the move to one of those early on, especially with Liverpool’s Gameweek 2 fixture at home to Bournemouth and Chelsea’s early fixture swing in mind.

You don’t get more information from an FPL perspective than in Gameweek 1, and a Brighton triple-up gives so much flexibility to deal with this, whilst covering you for the opening three weeks.

FINAL THOUGHTS

FPL Gameweek 15 differentials: Estupinan among three budget picks

Overall, I agree with the general consensus that Brighton players aren’t strong long-term picks. But for Gameweeks 1-3, I love them.

Whilst Estupiñan and Mitoma are fairly ‘template’ for now, having a third Brighton asset such as Ferguson, Enciso or Dunk not only gives some differential possibilities in the early weeks but allows you to make your moves easier as the FPL picture becomes clearer, and coincides beautifully with some fixture swings for top clubs.

Brighton take part in the Premier League Summer Series in America along with five other top-flight sides during pre-season, so I’ll be watching closely to see what we can read into the Seagulls’ selections and player roles.

    André Onana starting for Manchester United at £5m.

    I have had Raya pencilled in and until that's resolved at least it seems to be a sure fire way into that defence and set and forget.

    What could go wrong?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      Can't see Onana in the game yet

          Yeah, that helped.

        2. Bobby Digital

          That 0.5m will come handy

        He was on the 2nd list when I looked, or just search him

    Any thoughts on this please?

    Pickford / Kellher (if goes to wolves)
    TAA / Gabriel / Lamptey / James / Beyer
    Foden / Saka / B.Fernandes / Encisco / Gibbs White
    Jesus / Haaland / Wissa

    1. ameisin

      Lamptey is expected to leave Brighton, from what I've heard

      1. CSP1973

        That would be my luck!

          He didn't play anyway. That's not bad luck, just a terrible pick mate!

  3. Pumpkinhead - I'm ITK …

    I know people keep going on about prices but Jesus what a mess they have made this season. Onana priced at 5 just confirms everyone has him and downgrades Shaw to a 5.0 to cover it. What are these people doing to the game

    1. WVA
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Its looking better than last season but yeah theres some really obvious ones like Onana and Arsenal defenders!

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Onana is in 0% of teams suprisingly, uber differential

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Check back in a few minutes. I'm sure i'm not alone in adding him already!

        1. ElliotJHP
          • 12 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          I was honestly expecting 0.2% already, but I guess not everyone is quite as keen as us to drop everything and stick him in

          1. Waddlinho
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 7 days ago

            1,3% now.

            1. Andy_Social
              • 11 Years
              10 months, 7 days ago

              I just made the cardinal error of putting him in, then forgetting to confirm the transfer. Have I missed the deadline???

              1. ElliotJHP
                • 12 Years
                10 months, 7 days ago

                You've missed out on the "0.0nana club" which I believe gives you a 10 point headstart to begin with

                1. Andy_Social
                  • 11 Years
                  10 months, 7 days ago

                  Damn damn damn! I got too excited 🙁

    3. Funkyav
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      appealing to the masses, its now way too easy to pick a team of top 8 players unfortunately.

      I expect even higher ownership of the template this season

      1. Pumpkinhead - I'm ITK …
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        People are going to get bored and realise if they go behind it it's even harder than last season to catch up. They may get more people playing the game but I can see a whole lot more dropping out after 15 games.

        1. Funkyav
          • 14 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          yeah i think the hardcore will have to find another game

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 12 Years
            10 months, 7 days ago

            If you can get a good group together, the draft is very fun

    4. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      It seems like they are hellbent on everyone having exclusively top 4/6 players.
      It's almost like someone did the Haaland, TAA and Salah prices and then let the office intern do the rest.

    5. Mr. O'Connell
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Game creators saw non-big 6 teams infiltrating the template so had to put a stop to it.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Sign, NINE of my Starting XI are from the Top 3.

        1. SmasherLagru
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 6 days ago

          Who are the nine

      2. Pumpkinhead - I'm ITK …
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Absolutely ridiculous. Not sure how it is good for the prem. Most folk only watch Burnley Vs Forest because they have an FPL asset playing.

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years

          Good point

      Yep, only big differences/decisions at the moment are the Liverpool players....

    2. PukkiBlinder

      Is this the £102m template?

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 12 Years

        It will be by gameweek four when they all explode

  5. LangerznMash
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 7 days ago

    Would it be fair to say Brighton have one of the best scouting networks in the world? I honestly put them up there with the likes of Benfica, Dortmund, Lille and Napoli for unearthing relatively unknown world class talents.
    Just look at some of their transfers...
    Pascal Groß - £3m from FC Ingolstadt.
    Marc Cucurella - £15.5m from Getafe, sold to Chelsea for potential £63m.
    Robert Sánchez - poached from Levante academy, rumoured to be selling for around £30m
    Leandro Trossard - £13m from Genk
    Alexis Mac Allister - £6m from Argentinos Jrs, sold to Liverpool for potential £55m
    Moisés Caicedo - £5m from Independiente
    Kaoru Mitoma - £2.7m from Kawasaki Front.
    Ben White - poached from Southampton academy for free and sold to Arsenal for £55m!

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah that is impressive

    2. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      You might be right.
      Amazing record.

    3. I am 42
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      and still manage to stay in top 10

      Southampton made huge profit too, but...

    4. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Last season was their first profit in the premier league with transfers.
      Albion, who are seventh in the Premier League and targeting European qualification, released their figures for the 2021-22 season and, according to chairman Tony Bloom, it’s 'really encouraging' reading.

      They returned to the black for the first time since they were promoted to the top flight in 2018 with a profit of £24.1m. It’s an impressive turnaround from the previous year where the club had operated at a loss of £50.4m.

      Bloom, who has invested more than £400m of his money into the club, said: “Overall, these accounts show a good profit for the period, and this is really encouraging that in a season where we impressed on the field, we also delivered good results off it. Alongside our top-ten/top-four vision; we also want to be sustainable, so this is an encouraging set of results and bodes well for the future.

      They have had a lot of flops as well, but their selling this summer and last has been impressive.

    Onana
    Estu, TAA، Gabriel
    Saka, Maddison، Rashford, Mitoma, Foden
    Haland, Nkunku

    Subs: Areola, Bell, Beyer, Surridge

    Thoughts?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Looks good. I like the Nkunku pick and Maddison too. I have the same team bar Maddison and Nkunku. Got Mbeumo and Jesus instead.

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks. I will be probably change it before the season starts but a good template team atm.

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Nothing wrong with template if you want a decent start to the season. Won't be a great start, but won't be bad either.

    2. SpaceCoyote97
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Very similar to my team, but I swapped Estu for Veltman and went for Chilwell and Mbeumo as opposed to Bell and Maddison.

    3. NJ MetroStars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      id start with jesus over nkunku to be safe, but assming you cant afford it

    4. Waddlinho
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Very much like mine. Which means I like it.

      Onana
      TAA, Estupiñán, Gabriel
      Rashford, Saka, Foden, Mbuemo, Mitoma
      Haaland (C), Jesus

      Subs: Virginia, Pinnock, Bell, Woodrow

      Wanted to have Pinnock for safety. Still pondering Rash+TAA or Salah+Tarkowski and Mbuemo+Jesus or Ødegaard+Wissa.

      If there wouldn't be pre-season games, the template would be very strong indeed.

    I think Trossard can be the best value mid.

    Maybe he doesnt eat Martinelli's minute anymore but start as no 8 (Xhaka position).

    He straight in my team if that happen.

    1. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      There's a £75 million obstacle in the way.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Pepe?

      2. 3 A
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Price tag doesnt mean anything if u cant perform well.

        I think Harvertz comes as a cover for any attacking spot but his quality below Trossard and Martinelli.

  9. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 7 days ago

    Most people have a £4.5m keeper drafted.

    So the Twitter echo crowd saying they're saving £0.5m on Shaw, it's rather cancelled out by £5m on André Onana in goal.

    1. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      If just a few content-creator mung beans ditch Pickford, it will all be worth it.

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      73.5% save percentage in Serie A last year, and 9th best among goalies. Uh... that's not great.
      Might stick to Shaw and 4.5 gk then with small bonus of a lower owned% as the template evolves. I want Shaw for security of starts and BAPs regardless of position he plays.

      1. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Have FFS released an article on Onana?

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Heh, I've watched a dozen YouTubes on him in the last 3 days. FFS is like the BBC - the news is old a tired by the time they get round to it.

        9.5, really solid build, not much wrong with it.

      Who is Stones competing with for a starting spot?

      Same question for Ake.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Pep

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Gvardiol for Ake and RLewis for Stones. City might also get a new RB who would compete with Stones.

      3. Funkyav
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Stones is tricky cos he can play CB, RB and DM but basically his competitors are Lewis and Walker plus Akanji i guess

        Ake will have gvardiol as his comp

      4. Chandler Bing
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Think I'll just skip these guys then. Not worth the risk considering none of their assets provide superior offensive/bonus value over other teams' defenders. I miss Cancelo.

      5. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        He's competing with his own fitness.

    6. Coaly

      RMT

      Flekken
      Trent Gabriel Estupinan
      Rashford Bruno Saka Odegaard Mitoma
      Haaland Wissa

      Areola Baldock Bell Simms

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        8/10. It's very similar to mine but I have Jesus and Mbeumo instead of Wisss and Odegaard.

        Is Flekken guaranteed to start?

        1. Coaly
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Yes

      2. Waddlinho
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        I like it. If Flekken is nailed, he is the best 4,5 keeper out there. Starting defs are template, but they are template for a good reason.

        Midfield is strong. Double up on both ManU and Arsenal should pay off.

        I also like picking Wissa. He is undervalued in both meanings of the word.

      3. Jo Melon
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        I would downgrade Bruno and upgrade Wissa.

    7. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Onana 5.5 on FanTeam for anyone who plays that.

      1. SpaceCoyote97
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Honestly, I think that's the better price for him. 5.0 is too cheap, given Man Utd had the most amount of clean sheets last season.

        1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          The prices on there are generally just better/higher. Even with Haaland being more affordable, your template FPL team would probably be about 105/106m.

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 7 days ago

            Aye. I've got some fairly wacky players in my early drafts. Quite enjoying it.

      2. Red Red Robins
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Still have a 4.5m keeper on Fanteam - cant afford him on that tbh

    8. Free Hat
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Onana may be good with his feet,
      but I also would like to see him handle crosses in the box.
      PL is a whole different beast imo for GK.
      No matter how good/experienced they are, he will need to adapt first...

    9. RoyaleBlue
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Best two 4.5 defenders to rotate for the early season? Thinking Botman with someone else?

      1. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        http://www.fplrotationplanner.com suggestings that would be Webster and Badiashile.

        1. RoyaleBlue
          • 12 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Hmm I suppose I should mention the rest of my defense:
          Onana (Areola)
          Estu Gabriel 4.5 (4.5 4.0)

          Not sure I love the idea of doubling up on Brighton defense.

          1. LangerznMash
            • 7 Years
            10 months, 7 days ago

            If not Brighton then I quite like Hickey + Badiashile.

      2. Coaly
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        There aren’t any good 4.5s except Botman and Udogie

        Go for 4m ones instead

        1. WVA
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Udogie plays for Spurs

      3. Amphetamine Logic
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        "Botman with someone else" as opposed to "Botman with Botman"?

        1. RoyaleBlue
          • 12 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          As opposed to a combination that doesn't include Botman... Really insightful and helpful comment though mate, thanks!

      4. Jo Melon
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Botman and Mings

        1. RoyaleBlue
          • 12 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Was considering Botman and Pau. Is Mings spot still secure you think?

          1. Jo Melon
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 6 days ago

            Yeah I don’t think Pau would comes to warm the bench… maybe wait after pre-season matches over.

    10. pablo discobar
      • 14 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      GK Onana
      DEF TAA, Stones, Espi
      MID Saka, Mbuembo, Rashford, Martenilli, Ensisco
      FWD Haaland, Jesus

      (Areola, Botman, Baldock, Mubama)

      Team locked, good luck everyone!

    11. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Will we ever see an RMT without Onana again?

      1. LangerznMash
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Only way I'm getting Onana is if a £4.0m defender is a nailed on starter (hopefully Baldock).

        1. DavvaMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          I thought Bell and Beyer are also nailed starters at 4.0M?

    12. Bartowski
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Where's best to use 0.5 in this team:

      Flekken
      Saliba Estu Udogie
      Saka Salah Eze Foden Rashford
      Haaland Ferguson
      Bench = Foddered

      A. Today's gentlemen's choice of Flekken to Onana or perhaps Ramsdale
      B. Udogie to a 5.0 such as Gabriel / Ake
      C. Eze to a Bowen or Mount
      D. Ferguson to Alvarez or Awoniyi

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        E. Save it for the future

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        I'm saving 0.5m for a possible Estupinan -> Chilwell move.

        1. Bartowski
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          Yes that would make sense, thanks.

      3. Coaly
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Salah to Odegaard
        4m def to Trent

        1. Bartowski
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          No thanks.

      4. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        A to Onana or D to Awoniyi for me. Probably A.

        1. Bartowski
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          A is what I've done currently, thanks.

    13. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      I agree with Bobby. Chances are you won't want double Brighton defence every week after Luton.

      1. CONNERS
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Aagh double fail. Wheres the delete button...

    14. Jo Melon
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      I’m leaning to have a 4.5m fwd as bench fodder because no one interesting below 6m. Instead I’m looking for a good 4th and 5th mid.
      A. Mitoma and Reed.
      B. Enciso and McNeil.
      Thoughts?

    15. Lovren an elevator
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Igor Julio is coming in for 15m. Is he likely to be nailed alongside Dunk?

    16. AV92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 6 days ago

      Steele: Estupinan: Stones: Gabriel:
      Saka: Rashford: Martinelli: :Foden: Mbuemo: Haaland: Ferguson.
      Baldock, Bell, Ndiaye, Areola.

      Any good anyone?

    17. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 6 days ago

      (1) Pau Torres + Andreas or Beyer + MGW?
      (2) Any standout 4.5 forward (as in more likely to get one point instead of zero)?
