Here's 7 Fantasy Premier League Tips For Gameweek 3

Here's 7 Fantasy Premier League Tips For Gameweek 3
By Gary Connaughton Updated

After our fairly successful picks last week, we're back with our Fantasy Premier League tips for gameweek three. This week's fixtures are a bit more straightforward than the previous slate of games, meaning there are some obvious selections to be made.

One potential spanner in the works is that a number of players' prices have already started to rise. According to our own Mark Farrelly, this is being driven by clueless fantasy players jumping at the first glimpse of a bit of good form, something he argued passionately on this week's The Buildup podcast.

Fantasy Premier League Tips

Jonny (Wolves) - £5.5m

Wolves were very impressive in the second half of their draw against Manchester United, and you hope to see them kick on from that performance against Burnley.

Sean Dyche's side always struggle in front of goal and you would expect that to continue at Molineux. Jonny will be a beneficiary of that, and the Spaniard could well pop up with an assist in his advanced left wingback role.

Anthony Martial (Manchester United) - £7.7m

While Wolves' defence was impressive on Monday night, Anthony Martial did manage to breach it with a stunning finish in the opening period. The Frenchman has finally been granted the opportunity to play through the middle of the attack this season and he has flourished thus far.

Listed as a midfielder in FPL, his goals are also worth five points as opposed to the four gained by forwards. The starting striker in a big six side, he is a snip at that price.

Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) - £9.5m

Liverpool face Arsenal this weekend, and while The Gunners are in decent form at the moment, they have a torrid record at Anfield. Much of that is down to Roberto Firmino, who has scored in every home appearance against Arsenal since he moved to Merseyside.

We fancy him to keep that record up on Saturday, and it should be a stern test for Unai Emery's side.

Lewis Dunk (Brighton) - £4.5m

Many people had them down as relegation favourites before the start of the season, but Brighton have made a very impressive start under Graham Potter. They look like a much greater threat going forward in comparison to last season, while also maintaining their defensive solidity.

Potter opted for three at the back last weekend, but he is known to vary his tactics game to game. No matter what system them employ against Southampton, we fancy Brighton to keep a clean sheet against a goal starved Saints.

Harry Kane (Spurs) - £11.0m

Obvious? Yes. Likely to bag you a load of points? Also yes.

Don't overthink this one. Newcastle are pretty terrible, and Spurs will likely give them a bit of a trimming on Sunday afternoon. Harry Kane should score at least once, and can you really afford to pass up on near guaranteed points?

Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) - £9.5m

While Gabriel Jesus is obviously an immensely talented player, bringing him into your fantasy team the past couple of years was always a major risk. He played behind Sergio Aguero and was usually only given the odd start to go with his cameos off the bench.

However, something feels different this season. The Brazilian is looks in incredible form and would have three goals to his name already were it not for marginal VAR decisions. Pep Guardiola can't keep him out of the team for too much longer, with the trip to Bournemouth the perfect opportunity to give him a start.

Tanguy Ndombele (Spurs) - £6.1m

A goal and an assist in his first two games is some start for Tanguy Ndombele, and he is already justifying the club record fee Spurs forked out for him this summer.

The Newcastle game is the perfect opportunity for him to add to his tally and it will be interesting to see if he can keep this run up. At £6.1m, he is certainly worth the gamble.
