Three budget striker options that can make a difference for your FPL teams
Fantasy Premier League is always a confusing and a mind-boggling game to take on, which is why a lot of managers have a tough time tinkering with their squads. Lucky for them, we are going to take a look at three budget striker options that could prove to be great differentials.
Premium strikers will be heavily owned, which is why budget options will provide better chances to beat your rivals in the mini-league or gain some pace in the overall ranking. Let’s take a look at three strikers who are proving to be massive assets at their price range.
Glenn Murray (Brighton and Hove Albion – £6.5million)
Glenn Murray has always been a great asset to have in any Fantasy Premier League team. Though the English striker may not be an explosive one, he is extremely clinical in front of the goal and earns points on a consistent basis.
Murray has already scored 5 goals this season, picking up one double-digit haul in that space. He is very much the focal point of Brighton’s attack, which means most of their players will be aiming to find him inside the box.
Raul Jimenez (Wolverhampton Wanderers – £5.6million)
The Mexican hitman has delivered returns in all but three of his 8 gameweeks this season. Jimenez is excellent at linking up with his teammates. He is capable of picking up both goals and assists. The Mexican has been very unlucky in front of the goal as well, hitting the bar a couple of times.
Though the Wolves have a tough run of fixtures coming up, they have proven to be a resilient side at the back and an exciting one going forward.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham – £7million)
Only Harry Kane, Sergio Aguero and Eden Hazard have scored more goals than Aleksandar Mitrovic this season. The Serbian forward has been extremely clinical in front of the goal and has attempted a lot of shots in total this season.
Though Fulham are dreadful in defending, they have shown intent in the final third. Fulham have a good set of fixtures as well, with only a trip to Anfield posing to be a tough fixture in the next 5 gameweeks.
