Fantasy premier league – the best defences and the best defenders in FPL, Sky and TFF – post GW9

, ,

Below I’ve ranked the best defences and then put what I think is the with the best defenders in Barclays fantasy premier league, Sky Sports Fantasy Football and Telegraph Fantasy Football.

Ive ranked the teams using Goals conceded (GC) and clean sheets (CS) (these are shown)  plus some underlying stats to rank them (that’s why the order may differ from the GCs and CS’).  Its still early in the season and the rankings are totally on this years games .

With the defenders I’ve rated them on value and game time security with a bias on the fantasy premier league  defenders towards CBs due to the bonus situation.  I think everyone who comes to the site know’s that I’m wary of premiums for attacking potential and the Distin at £5.0m vs Baines at £7.5m debate so I wont dwell on it.  I’ve also change the favoured defender depending on injuries, form and gametime security.
