Best Fantasy Premier League Players | The Superstars of Premier League

In this article, we will look at best players to pick for premier league fantasy football. We will analyze and recommend players that were top performers in previous seasons and the ones that the fantasy football managers trust the most.

The strengths of each of these players will be put under the microscope. And as a result, it will help you decide which player can stay in your team and which not.

Currently, there are over 20 players that come under the radar of Fantasy Premier League top players.

But we have set criteria that will further filter the players.

Our top player criteria:

  1. Performance consistency
  2. Teams selected by %
  3. Past performance

Your intuition:

There are some transfer ins that you can do purely on intuition. You don’t need any reasoning and transfer in the player without hesitation.

Players like Salah, Son, Haaland, and DeBruyne are the kind of players that don’t need any hesitation in selection. And you can keep trusting them game after game even if they fail sometimes or for a few game weeks.

We encourage you to sign a few of these players but it is highly not recommended to make every FPL signing based on your intuition.

You have to transfer in a combination of budget players, mid price players, bargains and top players to be an FPL successful manager. And that’s the only way of lining up a strong team in the available budget.

Let’s look at some of the top players for Fantasy Premier League:

1. Muhammad Salah (Liverpool)

  • Season starting Price: £12.5m

The Egyptian king is always in demand in the Fantasy Premier League. He is scoring big season after season, and once again he is FPL’s one of the most transferred in midfielder for this season.

Mohamed Salah’s explosive pace and lethal finishing have made him one of the most feared attacking midfielders in the Premier League.

Operating predominantly as a wide forward, Salah has showcased a remarkable ability to cut inside from the right wing and find the back of the net with unerring accuracy.

His goal-scoring exploits have earned him numerous individual accolades and have been instrumental in Liverpool’s recent successes.

2. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

  • Season starting Price: £10.5m

Kevin Debruyne is another FPL managers big favorite and a consistent Premier League performer.

He started the season with a big injury but now when the exciting end of season is around the corner, De Bruyne is back and ready to help City win another Premier League title.

He is currently transferred in by more than 31.3% managers.

3. Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa)

  • Season starting Price: £8.0m

Last season Ollie Watkins scored 15 and assisted 8 goals in 3,129 minutes he played. The current season is already a jump start with 11 goals and 14 assists in just 24 games.

He is on our list of top players for the following reasons:

  • Ollie is a proven goalscorer
  • 1st choice penalty taker
  • part of an exciting attacking Premier League side Aston Villa

Ollie Watkins is currently owned by over 50.9% of managers, which is still low for a player of his quality. He is on our list of top FPL players for the potential he has and the past record.

4. Phil Foden (Manchester City)

  • Season starting Price: £7.5m

Phil Foden’s minutes on the pitch are going up every season.

Last season, Foden scored 142 points contributing to Manchester City’s scoresheet with 11 goals and 7 assists.

He is one of England’s top young talents who is getting more prominent with his performances each passing season.

Foden can easily score 15+ goals this season, even more if he remains in the plans of Pep Guardiola starting 11 consistently.

5. Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United)

  • Season starting Price: £8.5m

He scored 8 and assisted 9 goals in the Premier League last season. These numbers came down compared to the 2 seasons ago but for sure Bruno is one of the best players in the world.

176 points, still are not bad for a whole season but we are expecting Bruno Fernandes to do more in the ongoing season.

At least the price at which he is available right now (£8.2m) is too low for a player of his quality and Man United seems like is picking form and getting things together with Hojlund upfront.

6. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham)

  • Season starting Price: £9.0

Son scored 10 and assisted 6 goals last season which is an under performance compared to the season before where he scored 23 and became 1st Asian to end up top scorer of the Premier League.

Though his price is going up every season, currently Son is available at a much bargain price of just £9.6m.

Sonny’s current ownership is just 16.0% so he’s a huge advantage to have from game week 27 onwards after a blank week for Spurs in game week 26.

7. Trent-Alexander Arnold (Liverpool)

  • Season starting Price: £8.0m

TAA scored 2 and assisted 11 goals last season. An overall of 156 points with 2922 minutes on the pitch.

He is the most expensive defender in FPL but totally worth it. Especially when you look at his offensive abilities plus corner and long free-kick duties.

He gives a lot of assists from the wing. The 15 assists he provided in 2019/20 season is a record for any defender and being a young player playing at a big club like Liverpool, he can surely repeat the numbers of that title-winning season.

His FPL ownership is currently at over 21.0%. This makes it easy for us to put Trent in the list of top FPL players.
