Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defensive line after consulting this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended selections this week include players from Chelsea, Man Utd, West Brom and Leicester.

John Terry, CHE – £5.5m

The veteran centre-back looks set to start the season due to Kurt Zouma’s injury and a lack of new signings, and he’s at a reduced price.

An opening day fixture at home to West Ham isn’t exactly straightforward, but Antonio Conte may err on the side of caution in his first game in charge.

Antonio Valencia, MUN – £5.5m

Ended last season with a flurry of bonus points for his attacking displays from right-back, and could start at Bournemouth after providing a fine cross for Zlatan Ibrahimović’s debut overhead kick.

Craig Dawson, WBA – £5m

An opening day fixture at Crystal Palace looks tailor-made for a classic Tony Pulis shut-out, and Dawson has a goal in him too.

Team-mates Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans are worth a look at £4.5m apiece, but Dawson’s added goal threat makes his higher price worth it.

Wes Morgan, LEI – £5m

Last season’s title-winning captain gets 2016-17 underway at Hull, who are many people’s tip to be this season’s whipping boys.
