Premier League Fantasy Football 17/18

The Premier League is finally back after it’s summer break and with it is the return of the Fantasy Premier League. The Fantasy Premier League gives us all chance to build our own sides and pit our wits against friends and fellow fans. Below we’ll give you three tips for the upcoming game-week of the Fantasy Premier League. Want more insight? Then head over to our dedicated Fantasy Football League page, just hit the link.

Gameweek 6 – 23/09/17

Defence: Sead Kolasinac v West Brom – £6.0m

Our pick at the back this week comes in the form of Bosnia international Sead Kolasinac who’s made a big impact at Arsenal since arriving on a free transfer from Schalke. The signing of Alexandre Lacazette overshadowed his move but he’s gained an awful lot of plaudits over the course of his first six games for the club. He’s hit the back of the net twice and he’s capable of playing in both the heart of the defence and as a wing back which makes him a valuable member of Arsene Wenger’s squad. He’s already picked up 23 points from just four Premier League appearances and at £6m he represents excellent value for money so he’s a must for your side. The Gunners have a decent run of fixtures on the horizon with clashes against West Brom, Brighton and Watford all to come so there should be plenty of points to come for him.

Midfield: Pascal Gross v Newcastle – £5.6m

In midfield is Brighton man Pascal Gross who’s made a big impression on the south coast since arriving from the Bundesliga. His performances for relegated Ingolstadt last term earned him a move to the Premier league and he looks like he’s picked up exactly where he left off. The German is an energetic midfielder who possesses excellent technical ability and is always capable of popping up with important goals. In his last outing at the AMEX for Brighton he scored twice and recorded an assist against West Brom which saw him pick up a huge 18 points for his efforts and we’re expecting him to do some more damage here. He’s likely to be starting in attack playing off frontman Tomer Hemed and he really flourishes in that free role, so he’s certainly worth a punt at £5.6m.

Attack: Gabriel Jesus v Crystal Palace – £10.5m

Spearheading the attack for us is Manchester City youngster Gabriel Jesus who’s stock continues to rise in English football. The Brazilian only arrived at the Etihad Stadium back in January but he’s made a huge impression at the club, scoring 12 times in just 17 appearances. He’s quickly established himself as one of the Premier League’s finest marksman and he’s hit four goals in just six Premier League appearances this season. He’s formed a prolific partnership with Sergio Aguero in attack and with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane supplying him from midfield he isn’t going to be short on goalscoring opportunities. Here he faces a Crystal Palace side that’s lost all of their league games and severely lacking in defensive organisation, so we can see City scoring a hatful and Jesus will be getting fully involved.

Free Hit

This years fantasy football has a new feature added in. The “Free Hit” chip replaces last season’s “All Out Attack” chip to sit alongside the Wildcard, the Triple Captain and Bench Boost. It can only be used once a season and allows for unlimited transfers in a single Gameweek. Managers can replace their entire squad for that Gameweek but their 15-man squad of the Gameweek before returns for the next deadline. For example, if the Free Hit chip is played leading up to Gameweek 2, once the deadline has passed, you will see the points scored by your new squad via the points tab.

So, now it’s down to you to decide how you’re going to use it. Are you going to use it to ride out a couple of injuries and suspensions you’ve got? Or are you going to use it on a double Gameweek to maximise potential points to take you further up the leaderboard?
