Fantasy Premier League Scout And Tips : As FPL gets ready to make a return after a hiatus, we pour into the pool of the best cheap and lowly owned players to consider for GameWeek 9
With the Premier League season well underway now, a full eight gameweeks old, the ongoing instalment of the marquee league is a well known entity now. What began as a relatively unsure and unaware start to Fantasy Premier League as we were unsure of the players to indulge in as become a clearer concept now with the star performers and consistent players being well aware of now.
It’s offered us a massive boost to our FPL side as well, helping us craft our side by getting in players based on their current touch and the ensuing round of fixtures of them. And as the latest round of international encounters come to a culmination to fulfil our yearning for enthralling action in the Premier League, the time to start revelling ourselves in transfers for gameweek 9 has begun taking paramount importance.
Ahead of the forthcoming gameweek, our pertinent priority was to rope in cheap and lesser owned players. These are name who can not only help open up significant money to invest in the must have players but can also help fulfil aspirations of striving to make massive strides in the ranks of FPL leagues.
We begin with our goal-keeping choice first, continuing with our selection of Brighton’s Mathew Ryan. Where teams like, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have failed to justify the colossal amount accorded to their goal-keepers, Ryan has emerged as an excellent pick among not only the cheap buys but across the line.
The shot stopper has pulled off some stunning saves, one which has epitomised his calibre, seeing in rope in a slew of points in FPL and with an excellent line of fixtures awaiting him, he’s someone to be nailed down in the game.
At just 4.6 million, we have been surprised as to why Lewis Dunk’s value hasn’t risen over the course of these two weeks. The defender not only picked up a cleansheet against Tottenham the last time around but got an assist to accompany him as well, making both him and Ryan concurrently luscious picks with Brogdon pulling off extremely astute defensive displays recently.
Althouhg Bournemouth are not a aide massively renowned for their defensive setup, Diego Rico’s role as a more attacking fullback makes him an excellent option. He has Norwich City and Watford to play next, two teams against whom the likelihood of a cleansheet increases as well and with Rico being handed over corners as well, an assist becomes extremely realistic as well. At just 4.1 million, he’s one of the cheapest playing defenders in the game, a name too good to ignore given the role he’s been handed over by his outfit.
John Lundstram, 4.5 million
He began at just 4 million but his price of 4.5 million at the moment is a testament to how the Sheffield United midfielder has won us over with his tenacious displays. A CDM classified as a defender makes him pristine value and what has added to it is the reslliance, valour, determination and cohesion shown by his side in defence.
They face a guile filled Arsenal outfit this time around but with Sheffield United perturbing Liverpool at home to restrict them to just the one goal, a cleansheet this weekend won’t be the most surprising thing from Lundstram.
The cheapest defensive option from a top 6 side at the moment, Chelsea’s CB first came to the fore for his succulent displays against Liverpool. He kept snapping at Salah’s heels in that particular encounter, not letting the player gain any headway on him with his acumen of the game and speed to burn seeing him emerge as a real star performer.
He’s hammered down his place in the Chelsea backline ever since, being hailed for the way he’s handled himself and gone about conducting his business and his affinity to score a goal as well makes him a regulation pick for us.
A major reason for West Ham’s rise this season has come down to their new arrival, Andriy Yarmolenko. The wide attacking player has already scored thrice this season, a player who has emerged as the missing link to the side’s attacking displays, helping his side to finally unlock their true potential up the park.
There’s a slight doubt over his involvement for the side but if Kante is fully fit for the upcoming clash against Newcastle United at home, the diminutive midfielder is someone who makes heads turn. The tutelage of Sarri continued by the advice he’s gained under Frank Lampard this season has season Kante emerge as an all round player, adding goals to his game to make him the best midfielder in the footballing fraternity at the moment.
After an injury riddled season the last time around, the Brighton midfielders is back to being a regular player for his side. He has gotten just the one assist till now, performances which are yet to emulate the staunch performances of the 2017-18 season but he’s someone more than capable of emanating those toothsome displays. His side are playing an extremely attractive brand of football at the moment, and Gross might end up being a massively pristine buy at the moment.
One of the best players in this feature for us, the Bournemouth striker has shown why he’s held in such reverence in the Premier League. His penchant for the goal has seen him contribute with a goal or assist on all occasions apart from the first gameweek, making him someone to definitely rope into your side at the moment. He’s manifested everything needed of a myriad striker, a player who guile and trickery has been vital for Bournemouth’s progressive brand of football.
Wolverhampton might have begun the prevelant edition of the league in tepid fashion but the previous 2-0 win over Manchester City was quick to remind everyone of the tenacity they manifest. And the leading the side in their consummate success was their striker with the two assists, showing why Wolverhampton paid a good amount of money for him.
With his value dropping from 7.5 million to 7.1 million, this is the perfect time to snatch him up and get him into your side with Wolverhampton facing a solid run of fixtures in the time to come.
