Fantasy Premier League: A Round-Up

The Premier League kicked off with two Gameweeks full of fireworks. The start of the new season also started the very competitive Fantasy League. Every fantasy player might have created their core teams but with the surprises, the league has thrown our way so far with so many players performing tremendously well we present a round of fantasy tips for the upcoming match weeks.

Best Differentials

Differentials are those players selected by less than 5% of the Fantasy Players and can help boost your scoring compared to others in the match weeks. They are selected mostly on basis of form and the trust shown in them by the manager in the last game weeks.

Best Differentials
  1. David Raya Martin – The Brentford keeper has been in fine form at the start of the season keeping clean sheets in both fixtures. At 4.5 million he offers one of the best keeper choices for FPL Managers. He has also racked up 14 points in the process and with fixtures against Aston Villa, Brighton and Wolves you can expect more points from him.
  2. Che Adams – The Saints frontman has become an integral part of the squad since the departure of Danny Ings to Aston Villa. He played 90 minutes in both of Southampton’s opening fixtures and chipped in with an assist in each of them. At 7 million he is a good differential upfront with a comparatively easy run of fixtures apart from a visit to the Eithad in two matchdays time.
  3. Sergi Canos – At 5.5 million and being selected by 3.3% of managers the Brentford starlet is both a differential and an enabler. He was impressive in both fixtures and even found the net against Arsenal. With a total of 14 points and with Brentford in good form he can be a very good midfield choice for the next three match-weeks.

Best Returns

The player’s with the best returns are the ones who have been quite influential and have given one of the best point returns since the start of the season. These are also players who are star performers for big matches. FPL Managers tend to stick with them unless they have an injury or a very demanding run of fixtures week after week.

  1. Michael Antonio – The Hammers striker has been on fire getting a total of 29 points in two match-weeks. He has scored or assisted in each fixture and now becoming West Ham’s all-time Premier League top scorer his confidence is on a whole new level. The striker looked impeccable in the last fixture against Leicester as they ran riot in their defensive third. With fixtures against Crystal Palace and Southampton at 7.7 million, he is a must buy.
  2. Said Benrahma – Next up is Antonio’s compatriot who has been in stellar form scoring and assisting in both fixtures. He has become an integral part of David Moyes’ plans at the London Stadium. The Algerian at 6.2 million is again an enabler with not many midfielders at such a price have such an immense impact. Selected by 21% FPL Managers you can expect his selection percentage to go up and with the fixtures, he is definitely someone with picking at this price.
  3. Paul Pogba – The French magician seems to have finally found his feet at Old Trafford and when he is on song there are few players who can compete against him. He has provided 5 assists in the two matches which is more than what he managed in the whole of last season. He has given a return of 20 points and at 7.7 million is an option worth considering. Plus on paper United have a pretty easy run of fixtures apart from a tricky one against West Ham.

Best Enablers

Enablers are the players which are low in budget and allow you to go for premium players by the money you save. These enablers play integral parts during the season where they are good point gainers for their managers. Apart from that when they do not play they can be kept on the bench because of their low cost.

  1. Yves Bissouma – The Brighton midfielder played 90 minutes in both of Brighton’s fixtures. He has been in good form lately and was very influential in Brighton winning both their opening fixtures. With the form he has shown Graham Potter should stick with him for the upcoming fixtures and at 4.5 million he is a bargain . At such low cost he can also be benched during comparatively difficult fixtures against Everton and Leciester.
  2. Konstantinos Tsimikas – The left back has filled the void created by Robertson’s injury. He was very influential at the back keeping clean sheets in both fixtures and providing an assist in his last outing. At 4.2 million and with a points return of 17 he is an option worth considering. Though Andy Robertson is back in training Tsimikas is expected to play a few more games until Robertson is fully fit.
  3. Emmanuel Dennis – The Nigerian who signed for Watford this summer has been very good upfront and already has a goal and assist to his name. He is the lynchpin of the Hornets attack and at 5.1 million he is one of the cheapest striking option who plays 90 minutes for FPL Managers. Apart from a fixture against Spurs this weekend Watford have very good run of fixtures against Wolves, Norwich and Newcastle where they are expected to score goals and fair well. So Dennis is definately a player many managers will tend to buy for the upcoming weeks.

This was MITFL’s brief round up about the Fantasy players who are in most demand and are the best options for the matchweeks to come. These are some of the players FPL Managers can think about who can act as point banks and can take you a level above your Fantasy League rivals.
