fantasy premier league defender tips GW26 – player rankings for Defs and Gks
There’s player transfer suggestions at the end if you want to skip all the stats preamble.
I’ve firstly ordered the teams by what I think is their defensive strength based their goals, clean sheets and xG/shots conceded.
The stats after that are their:
fixture ease ranking so you can see who has the best fixtures to the end of the season. The first figure is GW26-30, the 2nd GW26-28. See our fixture ease article

Player transfer suggestions for GW26
The value options of Alexander Arnold, Lovren and Matip all have some uncertainty about them and Gomez is a longer term injury. Robertson or the GK are the best options at the moment. Liverpool have no blanks in the blank weeks of GW31 and GW33. See our doubles and blanks article
Man Utd (A)
Doherty appears to be back in the frame which is good although his price now is steep with the cheap Jonny provides a reasonable, if inferior, attacking option. Bennett at £4.1m is even cheaper.
Tomkins is now cheaper at £4.3m than Wan Bissaka but Wan Bissaka has far better bonus potential. The GK situation seems resolved with Guiata seemingly first choice.
West Ham (H)
Man Utd (H)
The defence is definitely on the improving scale. Shaw has better attacking potential than Lindelof but is more injury prone so take your pick there
Crystal Palace (A)
