Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 2 Best 4.5 Million And Under Defenders: Dwelling into the pool of cheap defenders to rope into your side ahead of the imminent second gameweek
With the 2019-20 edition of the Premier League one gameweek old now, not only have we been shed light on how teams could fare this term but the players who look to be ideal picks for Fantasy Premier League as well. While the big names continued to regale us in their tantalising soirees, our eyes were on the bargain buys and players with a low ownership, names who could come in and act as a difference maker to our side.
Ahead of gameweek 2, our main agenda lay in building a pool of defenders priced at 4.5 million and below, names who are not only assured of playing every gameweek but will help free up crucial money for you to elsewhere. Preceding today’s opening match between Arsenal and Burnley, we divulge into the best cheap defensive options, players who could help you make massive strides in your leagues in the ensuing time.
Lewis Dunk, 4.5 million
Returning with an assist and a cleansheet in gameweek one, Brighton’s centreback Lewis Dunk was someone who impressed us the most in the bracket of cheap buys. Not only was he astute at the back but was more than willing to use his innate ability to maraud up the pitch and find himself involved in a slew of his side’s freekick and corners.
It saw him get an assist for the first goal the side scored in a 3-0 thrashing of Watford and with West Ham and Southampton at home his next two fixtures, Dunk becomes the first name we would want to indulge in for the impending gameweek.
Erik Pieters, 4.5 million
While two assists and a cleansheet more than justify our inclusion for Pieters here, what really pushed the scales in his favour was the fact that he’s a Burnley defender. One of the stringiest and staunchest defences in the Premier League, the side are revered for their ability to stall opposition’s attacking moves with ease.
And the way Pieters played against Southampton showed that he might just emerge as their talisman in defence. He has tricky fixtures in the upcoming weeks but one his fixtures clear up, he’s a must have option.
Martin Kelly, 4 million
One of the few 4 million worth midfielders assured of playing every encounter at the moment, Crystal Palace’s Martin Kelly returned with a clean sheet when his side squared off against Everton the previous time around and has high potential for one this week as well. The third highest owned player in the game at the moment, his fixture against Sheffield United this week is one that makes him a must have for the week.
Diego Rico, 4 million
Although Bournemouth aren’t known to keep too many cleansheets with the side believing in building the sublime framework of success using their perusal of attacking options, Diego Rico is too good an option to ignore. Playing 5 at the back, leftback Rico can be asked to transition into a wingback as well, a role which sees him incorporate excellent value owing to his sojourns up the pitch.
With an easy fixture this week, his side might register a cleansheet as well, making him someone to rope into your side.
John Lundstram, 4 million
One of the most impressive performers from the newly promoted teams in the opening gameweek, John Lundstram played a quissential role in his side’s shut down of Bournemouth. In one of the most determined and resolute performances of the opening week, Sheffield United came away from Bournemouth with a 1-1 draw, result filled with resolve.
And with Lundstram playing as a CDM for his side but classified as a defended in the game, he’s someone you should get in your side and leave him there for the rest of the season.
