Ten Fantasy Football Transfer Tips
No matter what your style of play is with Fantasy Football, we all need to know the best bargains and the players to avoid. So we’ve taken the time to find them for our readers with our take on five players we should be including in our squads and five you should be avoiding. As well as 21.co.uk providing some top football betting tips, we are also having a Fantasy Football feature this season. So without further ado, here are 21’s Fantasy Football tips for September.
Five players you should look at this month
Now that the Premier League season is underway, it is a lot easier for our players to see who to bring in and who to take out of your fantasy Premier League team in the next month. Naturally, Liverpool and Manchester City have been the seasons top scoring sides but that doesn’t mean they’ve naturally got the best players to include, so we’ll aim to avoid players from both sides unless we think they’re going to have incredible months.
Harry Kane - Tottenham Hotspur - 11M
Now, we know what you’re thinking, this isn’t a bargain and at 11 Million you can’t exactly just slip Harry Kane in. Well, our original pick was going to be Christian Eriksen as he will likely start featuring for Spurs again and has been reduced in price to 8.8 million. But when Spurs have Crystal Palace, Southampton, Brighton and Watford in their next 5 games, it’s just very logical to have Harry Kane in your side after scoring in the North London derby and scoring for England during the international break.
Sebastien Haller - West Ham United - 7.5M
Sebastien Haller will be worth 8+ million after gameweek 12 because West Ham have such a fantastic run for their attackers to score in. Haller has already scored in back-to-back games and you would back him to score in any of their next 8 games. So at 7.5 million this seems like it could be a very shrewd signing to launch any title bids early on.
Douglas Luiz - Aston Villa - 4.6M
This is one of those signings that comes in handy when you have simply run out of money and you need an extra player. You’ve realised too late that Todd Cantwell has shot up to 4.8 and every other option seems a little too defensive. Well Douglas Luiz has moved up 0.1 thanks to his wonder goal against Bournemouth and we think at 4.6 he could be a bit of a steal - especially with Villa’s run in.
Daniel James - Manchester United - 6.1M
Daniel James is quickly becoming one of the central figures at both National and International level which is only going to boost the youngsters confidence. He started off at a lowly 6 million and FPL have warned players about his inevitable rise by making him 6.1, when you consider the price of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez, it seems like James is destined for a massive increase sometime soon. Man United’s current run in isn’t great but we still think James will rise in price.
Neal Maupay - Brighton - 6M
We were originally going to put Leandro Trossard here but since the Belgian’s fantastic performance against West Ham, Brighton have looked toothless against Southampton and unlucky against Manchester City. Maupay has grown into the role at Brighton and we think he’ll begin to play more and more minutes as time goes by. His price will likely rise if he goes on a goalscoring run which we think is a real possibility in the next two months.
Players that you should avoid at their price tag
David De Gea & Aaron Wan-Bissaka - Manchester United - 5.6M & 5.5M
Since their 0-0 draw with Liverpool in February, David De Gea has kept one clean sheet, the same amount as Jonas Lossl who was the goalkeeper of Huddersfield last season. What is surprising is that despite knowing this fact, 18% of fantasy football players have him in their squads. Same with AWB who only contributed to 3 goals last season but is selected by 30.3% of players!
Nathan Ake - Bournemouth - 4.9M
Our first repeat of the season is Nathan Ake who picked up just 5 points in his first 4 games losing 3 points for goals conceded and a yellow card. Bournemouth will always leak goals so having one of their defenders in your team isn’t the most logical thing. However, 13% of players still do.
Ruben Neves - Wolves - 5.5 Million
Let’s get one thing straight, Neves is a great player but when it comes to point scoring, he’s not even in the top 10 players under 5.5 million. 104 points last season from 4 goals and 3 assists proves just that. Especially when you consider West Ham’s Mark Noble got 5 goals and 5 assists last season.
Lucas Moura - Tottenham Hotspur - 7.4M
When we looked at the Spurs side in August, a lot of aspects very much depended on the future of Christian Eriksen. With him staying, it looks very likely that the attacking front four will consist of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Christian Eriksen, if they’re fit, and one of either Dele Alli, Eric Lamela, Lucas Moura, or Moussa Sissoko. This means that Lucas Moura may be restricted to off-the-bench roles and starting in European fixtures this campaign.
Bernardo Silva - Manchester City - 7.8M
Unfortunately for Bernardo, Pep’s rotation system has perhaps left him out in the cold this season and consequently the Portguese player has found himself further down the pecking order this season starting two out of four games but failing to complete a full 90 minutes of football this season.The 12% of players who have Silva may be looking to take him out as soon as possible.
