8 Fantasy Football Bargains You Can Add To Your Team This Season

The Premier League season starts on Saturday which means that the stress of picking your fantasy football team has hit its peak. You've inevitably chosen to include Eden Hazard, at least one of Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa, as well as an expensive Chelsea defender. Now you're scraping the bottom of the bargain-barrel to complete your team.

Well we can help you, here are the best fantasy football players available at affordable prices that can add some depth. These players can be relied upon to do the business whether they come off the bench or are given a coveted starting spot.


Jack Butland - £ 4.5

Taking over for Asmir Begovic as goalkeeper of a Stoke side synonymous with keeping clean sheets. Despite Mark Hughes masterminding the transition to Stokelona, we should still expect The Potters to be stingy at the back. Even if Butland isn't your first choice, he should be nailed on as your backup keeper at such a low price.


Cedric Soares - £5.0

Southampton have possibly the kindest opening fixtures of any team, combine that with their defensive performance last year and the replacement for Nathaniel Clyne is an attacking right-back from Sporting Lisbon. Cedric is a Portugal international and a must have from the start at just £5.0.

Toby Alderweirald - £5.0


One half of a strong-looking defensive partnership at the heart of the Spurs backline with Jan Vertonghen. Alderweirald was one of the best performing centre-halfs in the Premier League at Southampton last year. He chose Tottenham over The Saints and has Hugo Lloris behind him so he should bring in plenty of points.


Matt Ritchie - £6.0

The Bournemouth winger managed a colossal 15 goals and 17 assists on their way to winning the Championship last season, he's still only 25 and should be their star player this year. He was the creative force behind a team that scored 98 Championship goals last year and at only £6.0 he could be the bargain of the season.

Jonjo Shelvey- £5.5

Tried and tested at Premier League level, one Swansea's best players and his strengths are firmly in attack. Shelvey has a penchant for screamer and he also registered eight assists last season, eyebrows are being raised as to why he costs a meager £5.5 this year.



Troy Deeney - £5.5

Watford's captain has received admiring glances from Premier League clubs for the last three seasons. He's strong, good in the air, quick and he scored 21 goals in The Championship last season. At the age of 27 he should be hitting his peak and after years of flirting with Premier League football he shouldn't need any help to get going.

Callum Wilson - £5.5

The Championship winners and highest scoring teams highest scorer last year with 20 goals. Bournemouth scored goals for fun last season and Wilson was the focal point of the attack. At 23-years-old he has plenty of room to improve and will be integral to Bournemouth's attempts to stay in the Premier League.

Javier Hernandez- £6.0

This one is a little bit cheekier but Chicharito seemingly has no future at Manchester United and has been heavily linked with both Spurs and West Ham. If Hernandez recovers from injury and joins a Premier League team you're getting one of the league's most natural goalscorers extremely cheap.
