Can some of these stars fire you to title glory in your FPL mini-leagues?
Quite frankly, the only thing occupying our minds right now is the Fantasy Premier League.
It’s the only thing we’ll care about for the foreseeable future too, and right now we’re hunting for bargains.
Will one of these midfielders be a bargain for your Fantasy Premier League team.
Having already looked at goalkeepers and defenders you could sign in the coming days, we’re now looking at possible midfielders for your squads.
It’s best practice to forget deep-lying players like Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele, despite his brilliance on the ball, as he simply won’t earn you enough points.
But occasionally the odd 100-point star in defensive midfield like N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic (both available for £5million) but who are the other cheap stars we’ve found? Check out the list below to find out.
Lucas Torreira (Arsenal) – £5million It’s always best to exercise caution with players in their first ever Premier League season, especially diminutive scrappers. However, this one might be worth a risk given his set-piece threat and all-round ability and technique. Jorginho (Chelsea) – £5million Don’t fancy Kante? Well, his new partner in crime might just be the man for you. He could be set to accrue plenty of bonus points with his passing, while he also managed two goals and four assists last year for Napoli. Tom Cairney (Fulham) – £5million He had been linked with numerous Premier League clubs over the summer but the signed a new deal at Craven Cottage. His passing is a delight and he’s more than capable of getting goals two having scored six last season in Fulham’s promotion campaign – including the winner in the play-off final against Aston Villa. Will Hughes (Watford) – £5million The English youngster looks fully fit again after being restricted by injuries last season. He only played 987 minutes of football for the Hornets but managed two goals and three assists, if he can stay healthy he has the potential to be a superb sleeper pick. Granit Xhaka (Arsenal) – £5.5million With Lucas Torreira joining to beef up the Gunners’ midfield, we could see Xhaka move a little further forward and offer more in terms of goals and assists. He managed just one goal but created eight, similar numbers will make him a good bench offering. Jean Michael Seri (Fulham) – £5.5million A lot of football fans were surprised the Cottagers were able to pick up Seri ahead of other top European teams this summer. And in FPL he’s been handed a low fee too, especially given he’s more than capable of providing goals and assists in a big-five league. Gerard Deulofeu (Watford) – £5.5million Keep a close eye on this one. The Spanish star was stunning for the Hornets against Chelsea last term before injury stopped him from featuring more prominently. He’s not played a part in pre-season yet but if he does then this fee could be an absolute bargain. Ivan Cavaleiro (Wolves) – £5.5million You can never guarantee a player will take his tallies up from the Championship to the Premier League. But if Cavaleiro can get anywhere near his nine goals and 12 assists then – wow – you’ve got the bargain of the century on your hand. Luka Milivojevic (Crystal Palace) – £6.5million You know the score with the Serbian star, he’s he to score penalties and no one is going to stop him. Sadly he isn’t as cheap as last year, which makes it a bit risky but he’s worth considering as an option, especially if you’ve already used too many players from the same clubs. Richarlison (Everton) – £6.5million He’s definitely not a bargain in the real world but in Fantasy Premier League he may turn out to be a steal. Under Marco Silva at Watford he scored five goals and made four assists, but struggled after he left in November. If the Portuguese manager can get him firing over a full campaign then he could be lethal for the Toffees. James Maddison (Leicester City) – £6.5million The talented youngster joined from Norwich City and is already exciting Foxes fans. Maddison put in a top display in their 4-1 friendly win over Notts County and he could also find himself on set-piece duty now Riyad Mahrez has left for Manchester City. Mohamed Elyounoussi (Southampton) – £6.5million Another summer signing from abroad who represents a risk, Elyounoussi hit 11 goals and made eight assists in the Swiss Super League last season which is, at the very least, promising for the Saints. But it’s worth remembering he also got two Champions League goals too, including one against Manchester City, and one assist, which also came against City. Plus, he’s already well-versed in a 3-4-2-1 which Mark Hughes is likely to play at St Mary’s this season. Source link
