The teams are ranked by the strength of the defences faced over the first 6 gameweeks.
The strength of the defences faced are based on the averages of their expected goals against and their actual against for last season with a general adjustment for home and away. . The teams are then divided up into 5 colours of 8 home/away teams each. A couple of teams have had adjustments for late season improvement or injured players returning.
A schedule for defenders and GKs will be out tomorrow
A fixture difficulty schedule for attacking players
Here’s a graphic where the teams are ranked by the ease of the defences they face over the upcoming 6 gameweeks. There’s attacking player suggestions below.
Here’s some early player suggestions from the top 7 ranked teams. Obviously there’s still 2 months to GW1 so things could change massively.
The prices are from the Premier League price reveal on the Premier league site for the 21/22 season
No one for me at the moment. Maupay was in and out of the side and Trossard’s stats for me aren’t good enough
Salah Mid £12.5m – 20/21 PPM 6.2
Jota Mid £7.5m – 20/21 PPM 4.5
Wait until GW4. I have read stuff which suggests £7.5m fwd Jimenez could be fit. 20/21 PPM 4.3
£8.0m Fwd Calvert-Lewin – 20/21 PPM 5.0
£7.5m Fwd Antonio – 20/21 PPM
Lingard was on loan last season and for now has returned to Man Utd so I haven’t included him
£12.0m Mid Fernandes – 20/21 PPM 6.6
£7.5M Mid Greenwood – 20/21 PPM 3.4 (distorted by sub appearances)
£8.0m Mid Grealish – 20/21 PPM 5.2
£7.5m Fwd Watkins – 20/21 PPM 4.5
