5 Fantasy Premier League Bargains From The Newly Revealed Player Prices

Fantasy Premier League makes its long-awaited return to our hearts, minds and stress levels this week with just over a month to go until The Premier League season kicks off.

FPL has decided to drip feed us some player valuations for the forthcoming season.

We decided to pick five of the best bargain buys that have been revealed so far so can start planning your side before the game has even launched officially for the new season.

Leroy Sane - Man City - 8.5


Sane failed to make an impact for the first half of the season but can we begrudge him? He was only 19 and was coming from a completely different league. He became a regular starter in January of 2017 and has never looked back, consistently chipping in with points. Valued at 8.5 and with a very good chance of starting most matches, it seems like a no-brainer to try and squeeze him into your team.

Harry Maguire - Leicester City - 5.0

The 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City failed miserably last season in their title defence but was that down to selling the midfield maestro and back four protector, N'golo Kante or, was it to do with the collapse in form of both Robert Huth and Wes Morgan? That is irrelevant now as Leicester splashed the cash on one of Hull City's standout player last year, Harry Maguire.


Priced at 5.0, Maguire has a very good chance of ousting either Huth or Morgan. He is quick, strong and has an eye for a goal also, scoring twice in the Premier League in his debut season.


Tom Heaton - Burnley - 5.0

Where do we start? The highest scoring goalkeeper in the game last year, coming in with 149 points, 10 clean sheets, 142 saves and 21 bonus points. Heaton was priced 4.5 last year, so the minuscule rise of .5 for this year certainly won't be throwing FPL managers off having the big man as one of their goalkeepers. Numbers don't lie!


Joe Allen - Stoke City - 5.5

The wee Welshman found a new lease of life at Stoke City last season after performing extremely well at Euro 2016. Allen finished the 30th top scoring midfielder in FPL last season with 118 points. He chipped in with six goals and three assists and scored 10 bonus points. A second season under his belt with Mark Hughes could see him improve on last years tally.

Dele Alli - Tottenham Hotspur - 9.5

Finally and incredibly, Dele Alli, the second highest scoring midfielder and second highest scoring player in the game behind Alexis Sanchez last season is valued at a very reasonable 9.5. Although Tottenham had a sluggish start to the season, Alli chipped in with a cool 18 league goals and just the 10 assists. If Spurs can replicate any of their form from last season, Alli will be a must have for any FPL manager.

Other Valuations

Gareth McCauley - 5.0
Etienne Capoue - 5.5
Anthony Knockaert - 6.0
Tom Ince - 6.0
Nathan Redmond - 6.5
Dwight Gayle - 6.5
Manuel Lanzini - 7.0
Cesc Fabregas - 7.0
Fernando Llorente - 7.5
Joshua King - 7.5
Christian Benteke - 8.0
Mohamed Salah - 9.0
Alexandre Lacazette 10.5

We are already heavily preparing for the upcoming FPL season, so keep an eye out for more advice in the coming weeks.
