FPL Tips: 5 Good Business Advocates For Your Fantasy Premier League Team
Andy Robertson (£ 7million) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£ 7.5million) from Liverpool will again be great FPL picks, but with the Duo price on the rise, you’ll really have to look for the bargains to accommodate those premium picks.
As with recent fantasy campaigns: these are slim choices at this price bracket and you’ll have to be brave, silly, or both to pick more than one or two of the names below … to save your budget we’ve got priced at £ 5.0million but tried to focus on players at £ 4.5million.

1. Tariq Lamptey, Brighton (£ 4.5million)
Here we are again. If you’d rather stick with last season’s one Brighton discount, there’s every chance Lewis Dunk can do what we said he would do last year (reminder: he scored 128 points for just £ 4.5million), but Lamptey is the new one hotness. The 19-year-old has already supplanted Martin Montoya, sending the former Barcelona man at The real Betis.
It’s also a small bet on Brighton winning clean sheets which largely depends on the defensive value of Ben White, the center-back who has led Leeds promoted during a loan and is courted by the Big Six clubs … therefore:
In fact, while you’re here you should be thinking about Ben White! White, he is largely dependent on the clean sheet, like Dunk was a year ago, White has potential. While doubling gulls is unlikely to be the path to long-term success, picking one is a quality path to medium-term well-being.
2. Kyle Walker-Peters, Southampton (£ 4.5million)
KWP secured its permanent move to Southampton and should earn the right-back spot to start the season. The England defender is both an exciting prospect for the future and a player who must play now to claim his claim – for (£ 4.5million) it’s worth the bet on the latter.
At 23, Walker-Peters is entering his fourth Premier League campaign after showing fantastic shine in small doses. He pocketed two assists in 188 minutes in 2017/18, adding three more assists in 374 minutes the following year. This is the season where he makes the connection, giving you a useful boost on the bench at a price you can live with.
3. James Justin, Leicester City (£ 4.5million)
Justin isn’t the youngest player we expect to be successful, but he’s the youngest asked to lead a defense. Leicester City are in trouble. With Ben Chilwell sold to Chelsea and Ricardo Pereira still recovering from a serious injury, James was asked to replace the right-back and held his ground, but a bit more, while Brendan Rodgers’ side slipped out of the top four.
So why buy? He will retain the role until Pereira returns and that defense will become stronger with the return of Caglar Soyuncu to the fold. The two young defenders could be the heart of Leicester’s next big defender from GW1.

4. Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Arsenal (£ 5.0million)
The 23-year-old midfielder / defender / full-back / whatever position you love player had sparked interest this summer, but the Gunners might be wise to give him a bigger platform to grow this season. He didn’t just take the frostiest penalty in the Community Shield, AMN has shown he’s versatile, capable and ready for an escape.
Arsenal can’t afford to lose more special talent, and your FPL side can benefit. With the transfer window open for another month and rumors of a departure for fashion mogul Mr. Hector Bellerin, there could be plenty of playing time this season for Maitland-Niles to lean on. on appearances to date.
5. Reece James, Chelsea (£ 5.0million)
It’s rare that you can buy a starter in a top six defense for £ 5.0million unless you count Arsenal … which this writer isn’t (OK – except maybe Maitland- Niles). TO Chelsea, James has the right-back position locked down for the next decade and he will have plenty of opportunities to contribute alongside Lampard this season.
For those looking for underlying stats to justify the addition, this Chelsea side finished the season second in expected goals and their defensive body played a modest role in those returns. James and his new teammate Chilwell will be offered to support the attack on each flank and replicating Cesar Azpilicueta’s annual contribution of six assists is well within James’ grasp.
