Fantasy Premier League Tips: These Guys Are Sinking Your Fantasy Season
This week we tell you which Fantasy Premier League players to drop from your squad. These are the players that are overpriced, underperforming and just dead weight on your team.
Hello Fantasy Premier League gamers. We hope you are still eating and drinking after seshing FIFA 18 all weekend. Today on the show we will go over players that have been massive disappointments in the PL season. They simply are not worth the price that you are paying for them. Let’s get to it, here is a position by position break down of the worst fantasy players of the Premier League season.
Lets start at the back.
GK: Jordan Pickford (Everton): £5.0 - 20 points
Everton spent over $33 million on Jordan Pickford in the summer, a fortune for a 23-year-old that’d made only 31 Premier League appearances for Sunderland. The young man has started every match for his new side, but only West Ham and Crystal Palace have shipped more goals than the Toffees.
When your backline is anchored by 35-year-old Phil Jagielka, 33-year-old Ashley Williams and 32-year-old Leighton Baines, you’re just asking for some disasters in slo-mo. Is it possible Pickford is on relegated teams in back to back seasons? The answer is yes.
DF: James Milner (Liverpool): £6.2 - 11 points
After starting in 36 matches for Liverpool last season, James Milner has been cast aside by Jurgen Klopp with the boss preferring Alberto Moreno at left back and a midfield three of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Emre Can.
Fortunately, this leaves James with lots of time to sort his sock drawer in order of color and on occasion to clean out the cupboards.
MF: Bernardo Silva (Man City): £7.5 - 7 points
A depressing result of the mega clubs stockpiling all the world’s greatest talent is exemplified in the case of Bernardo Silva. Last season, Silva’s play for Monaco was poetry in motion. The 23-year-old is one of the most uniquely talented midfielders on the planet, but he’s started only one EPL match with five substitute appearances. It’s a shame, but Man City’s ridiculous start means that Pep Guardiola isn’t going to turn to the Portuguese playmaker any time soon.
MF: Heung-min Son (Tottenham): £8.0 - 10 points
Sonny became everyone’s second favorite player last year after scoring 14 goals in 34 matches and doing it all with a massive poo-eating grin on his face. This year, he’s yet to register a goal or an assist in six appearances. As much as we all love Sonny and as much as it pains us to say it, he’s not going to come anywhere close to justifying his huge price tag.
ST: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal): £8.3 - 11 points
“There was something in my soul and in my heart which told my to stay,” said Olivier Giroud when asked why he chose to stay with Arsenal despite the club’s record signing of Alex Lacazette. Well, his soul and his heart lied to him. Giroud has been the Gooners’ super-sub this season, coming off the bench in all seven matches but failing to score since Arsenal’s opening fixture. At this point, a hot run of form from Giroud would be nothing more than a goal or two over the space of a month, a meager return for an astronomical price.
