Which premium fantasy football player will you pick this season?

Premium players form the backbone of any FPL team as they are expected to score the most points. As the most expensive option, whichever one you choose takes up a hefty chunk of your budget which means you need to carefully consider who you go with.

Before the first game week of the season, I think we have some premium for interest. I’ll sort them into different categories – definitely, maybe, wait-n-seize

Obviously, you may agree with me – and that’s okay. Part of the fun of FPL is seeing how different opinions shake out once the game is played.

Of course there is

In my mind, there is only one man in this category.

That’s Liverpool Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)Who are ideal FPL picks.

He has scored more than 200 FPL points in five consecutive seasons and has been the top scoring player in three of them.

Time to dominate the stats.

The Egyptian makes a reliable captain pick in any gameweek and is so durable that he rarely gets injured or rested.

He will be the only one to start the season.


Four representatives from two clubs – Man City and Spurs – make up the base

Unless you’re going to lopsided your team and choose three premium players in a so-called “threemium” setup, you can choose one of these alongside Salah.

Four players Harry Kane (£11.5m), Son Heung Min (£12.0m), Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) And Erling Haaland (£11.5m).

The first three have proven pedigree in terms of FPL, with Haaland an interesting case of a player from an elite background who may still need time to find his feet in the Premier League. However, managers seem to favor the former Dortmund man over the other three: at the time of writing the Norwegian is in just under half of FPL sides, Kane and Son compared to around a quarter of sides, and De Bruyne’s ownership hovers around 15%.

This may be an important point to consider early on: if Haaland hits the ground running in Gameweek 1 against West Ham and you don’t own him, you could be penalized if you go with options – especially with that favorable Gameweek 2 matchup against Bournemouth. against

The logic also works the other way around, of course – if you start with Kane, for example, you expect him to outperform Haaland in a juicy Gameweek 1 match against Southampton, and you get an early advantage from managers backing the City hitman.

As for who to include, I’d lean towards a striker as it makes for a more balanced team rather than having two premium midfielders, but I’m still undecided on which: without knowing the results, there’s no wrong answer. So basically go with what you think works best for you.


I used to take classes cristiano ronaldo (£10.5m), Raheem Sterling (£10.0m), Bruno Fernandes (£10.0m) And Jamie Vardy (£9.5m) As both Premium and Wet-n-Seaz.

This is for a number of reasons: either their club has new management in the case of Manchester United, they have signed a new contract in the case of Sterling, or there may not be room in your squad for a player of that price as in the case of Vardy.

I’d like to see some combination with others in my early draft due to outstanding early play and the fact that I’d be more than happy to captain those guys, but don’t discount this team; They can, at their modest discount, contribute to our team as things develop.
