fantasy premier league cheap midfielders – “ones to watch” GW6

If you follow my top 10 FPL managers you’ll see that using a cheap midfielder isn’t common at the moment.  In fact none of the players below are in any of  the teams.  However below the main  article I’ve also covered the £4.5m ish bench warmers which you will require even with 4 expensive midfielders.  However if you want 1 cheaper midfielder or to rotate 2 in order to invest in multiple expensive players then here’s some options in the table below.  There’s also a key and some narrative including possible rotation pairs

KEY

Value:  At the time of the article

Minute per FPL point 13/14:  Last seasons minutes it took to earn an FPL point.  The lower the better obviously

Minute per FPL point 14/15:  As above except 14/15

Consistency 14/15; % of games where the player got a goal or assist in 14/15

Fixture ease:  The rank of the 20 FPL teams easiness of the next fixtures from an attacking point of view.  The next 6 are first with the next 3 in brackets.  See article

Top 10 FPL managers ownership:  How many of the top 10 FPL managers I follow own this player.  See article

Puncheon

Needs no invitation to shoot and has continued this on this season.  Will benefit from Warnocks more attacking game plan.  The shooting and pen box touches are good as are the fixtures.  Too expensive to rotate at nearly £6.0m.  Seems to have seen off the Zaha challenge to the flank players.

Leicester (H)
Hull (A)
Chelsea (H)
West Brom (A)
Sunderland (H)
Man Utd (A)

Moses

Fantastic against QPR and his pace suits Stokes counter attacking game.  Great fixtures to come.  Could rotate well with a Swansea midfielder of Routledge or Dyer.

Newcastle (H)
Sunderland (A)
Swansea (H)
Southampton (A)
West Ham (H)
Spurs (A)

Schneiderlin

Despite being known as a CDM with little goal scoring pedigree he’s shown real goal scoring form this season and has been a key part of Koemans amazing transformation of the remains of the asset stripped team.  Looking closer at his underlying stats he’s definitely getting into the box regularly and although his shots in the box could be better they’re not too bad thats for sure.  Great fixtures.  Could rotate with Leicester striker Ulloa in 3-5-2 if you dare take Ulloa out of your first team at the moment.  If you’re going to buy him, home to QPR is definitely the time to do so

QPR (H)
Spurs (A)
Sunderland (H)
Stoke (H)
Hull (A)
Leicester (H)

Downing

Created a bit of a fantasy stir with his assist in playing behind the striker against Liverpool with an impressive performance.  Whether he has the ability to consistently find the net is the main question.  No obvious rotation pairs

Man Utd (A)
QPR (H)
Burnley (A)
Man City (H)
Stoke (A)
Aston Villa (H)

Routledge

I’ve gone for Routledge over Dyer as he seems to have better underlying stats despite not scoring the points.  Could rotate with Moses.

Sunderland (A)
Newcastle (H)
Stoke (A)
Leicester (H)
Everton (A)
Arsenal (H)

Noble

Noble may play in a relatively deep position but he does have the advantage of pens and a share of set pieces and this has kept him ticking over.  As I said for Downing difficult to pick a rotation partner.

Man Utd (A)
QPR (H)
Burnley (A)
Man City (H)
Stoke (A)
Aston Villa (H)

Rodwell

Despite no returns in the last 3 I’ve stuck with Rodwell over Larsson. Rodwell has done well in getting into the box and shooting it’s just not happened for him since his early goal.  Larsson is more of an assist based set piece option.  Good fixtures although no real Newcastle rotation option.  2 good home fixtures next are the time to buy if you’re going to gamble

Swansea (H)
Stoke (H)
Southampton (A)
Arsenal (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Everton (H)

 

£4.5m ish options

Boyd  – Burnley

Marney –  Burnley

Hammond – Leicester
