Fantasy Football – 10 Players From Promoted Clubs Worth Considering

After discussing yesterday whether you need Van Persie and Bale in your team, today we turn our attention to cheap Fantasy Football options from the promoted clubs. We've picked three prospects from each team:

Cardiff City

Bo-Kyung Kim £5m

In great form pre-season, after an impressive year in the Championship. Kim takes free-kicks and corners too so is a definite cheap option in midfield.

Steven Caulker £5m

The worry with buying defenders from promoted teams is that it's a guarantee they will concede plenty of goals. So usually I stay away from them but with Steven Caulker I may make an exception due to the added attacking threat he brings at set-pieces.

Craig Bellamy £5.5m

Bellamy has proven class but one would have to worry if he'll be a regular starter. He is definitely going to be injured soon rather than later but perhaps he worth taking a chance on.

Crystal Palace

Owen Garvan £5m

Garvan is the sneaky Irish prospect for Fantasy Football. He has drifted in under the radar but last season he bagged four goals and six assists in 30 appearances and he takes set-pieces. Definitely worth considering.

Dwight Gayle £5m

This one could be thrown awry due to the arrival of Chamakh but one would still fancy Gayle as a more promising prospect. He scored 13 goals for Peterborough last season, which is impressive considering they were relegated in the end. He will probably play as a lone striker and will also be entrusted with penalties, so he definitely presents a decent third striker option.

Jonathan Parr £4m

It's hard to see any decent signings in Palace's defence but Parr is an attacking left-back with four assists last season so perhaps he is worth considering.

Hull City

Robert Koren £5m

Experienced in the Premier League, attacking midfielder who will take plenty of corners; Koren is well capable of scoring fantasy points. He got nine goals and five assists last year in the Championship so if he can keep up his form he may well prove an excellent cheap signing.

Robbie Brady £5m

A lot like Koren, Brady is a very good attacking option for Hull. He'll also get his fair share of set-pieces but perhaps Koren is a slightly better option given his experience.

Danny Graham £5.5m

This hugely depends on which Danny Graham shows up. Graham was useless last season but with Swansea in 2011/12 he was one of my favourite signings. His £5.5m price is slightly expensive for me but my heart my rule my head on this occasion.


The verdict

A few decent options but the most enticing players for me are Owen Garvan and Danny Graham.
