Whilst one of this week’s picks may come as a surprise to you, due to his high ownership, I believe there’s better value for money elsewhere regarding this player – be sure to let me know what you think via @DannyBryan27
So, without further ado, I wish all Fantasy Premier League bosses around the world, the very best of luck for Gameweek 6 and as always, may your arrows be green.
Who’s NOT? (hot)
Ryan Bertrand – Southampton [£5.5m]
Southampton earned their third clean-sheet of the season as they saw off Crystal Palace 1-0 in Gameweek 5.
However, they face the far more daunting task of keeping Manchester United at bay in Gameweek 6.
Jose Mourinho’s side have found the net sixteen times in just five Gameweeks, and it’s difficult to envisage their attacking weaponry failing to fire at St.Mary’s.
Bertrand is one of the FPL’s more popular defensive options, so if you’re one of the 13.9% of FPL bosses who currently own the England full-back, I strongly advise you shop around elsewhere for Gameweek 6.
Dele Alli – Spurs [£9.5m]
Dele Alli is the second most popular FPL midfielder, featuring in almost a third of teams at the time of writing, despite failing to achieve double figures in any of the five Gameweeks so far. So, at £9.5m, is he currently a tad overpriced? I think so.
Gameweek 6 sees Spurs make the short trip to the London Stadium to face West Ham, where their title hopes were all but ended when the two sides met at the back end of last season.
What’s more, Alli is competing with a series of top-class midfielders who are currently bang in-form for a place in your FPL squad.
So, in the short-term, it doesn’t seem such a crazy idea to ditch the young England international and replace him with either Henrikh Mkhitaryan or David Silva – who are bargains by comparison.
Both have the potential to attain big scores in Gameweek 6 given their respective fixtures and their current form.
Wayne Rooney – Everton [£7.5m]
Everton are having a dismal time of it at the moment, with nine goals conceded over the last three Gameweeks without reply, and after netting in both Gameweeks 1 and 2, Wayne Rooney’s form has taken a similar turn for the worse.
Despite putting in an admirable shift on his return to Old Trafford in Gameweek 5, the current 15.8% of Rooney owners will no-doubt be frustrated at the lack of points.
If you’re planning a bit of a reshuffle to generate some funds, Leicester’s Jamie Vardy – £1.0m more expensive than Rooney – could be the ideal replacement.
The England forward has scored in consecutive Gameweeks for the Foxes and in Gameweek 6 faces a Liverpool defence who have shipped eight goals in just two away fixtures so far this season.
Alternatively, if funds are tight, Burnley’s Chris Wood is an excellent cheaper option for Gameweek 6 at just £6.5m.
The New Zealander has already found the net twice in just three Premier League appearances for the Clarets – form which has so far been overlooked by the vast majority of FPL bosses.
