Top 3 Fantasy Premier League performers after 4 gameweeks
As the international break dawns upon us, it’s not just a break for Premier League managers but for fantasy team coaches as well. Every year, millions of fans compete against each other in the Fantasy Premier League.
The game is known to cause disputes and tussles as competition increases week after week. Everybody wants to be on top of their mini-league, but not all are as fortunate. A number of players have performed seamlessly in the opening 4 weeks of the Premier League.
Managers who pick the right choice will have an early advantage and would gain value inflation on the performing players. Here we take a look at three of the top performers after four weeks of highly intense Premier League action.
Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has started the season in exceptional form, scoring 4 goals in 4 games to top the scoring charts. The Senegalese international cost £9.5million at the start of the season but has now risen to £9.9million in just 4 weeks.
The fantasy managers that acquired Mane right from the start would see a £0.2million increase in their squad value. Mane has proven to be an even better option than Mohamed Salah, who has offered lesser points per million as compared to his compatriot.
Except for a blank against Brighton and Hove Albion, Mane has scored 16,10 and 10 in the other games respectively. We could see Salah’s owners jump the ship to join the Mane bandwagon when Premier League football returns next week.
Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
The Spaniard has started the season in devastating form under Maurizio Sarri, scoring 1 goal and providing 5 assists (in FPL terms) to kick off his season. Marcos Alonso has picked up a whopping 11,13,11 and 9 in the last four weeks of Premier League football.
His positioning seems almost striker-like in some games, with the left-back often present in the thick of the action. A number of managers opt against picking premium defenders like Alonso, who cost a mammoth fee, but at £6.8 million, Alonso’s returns are totally worth the money.
Benjamin Mendy (Manchester City)
The former Monaco full-back is in fiery form this season. The Frenchman’s devilish deliveries into the box are almost always destined to find his teammate. Mendy is one of the leading assist provider this season for the Cityzens.
In FPL, the left-back has picked up 5 assists in 4 games. Mendy racked up 15,8,4 and 5, justifying his price tag for all the loyal owners that stuck by him. It’s proven to be a brilliant season for left-backs so far and the hype can only go up from here.
