5 Fantasy Premier League bargain goalkeepers
- By Football Burp
Come all ye fantasy football faithful as we get ready for the 2016-17 season by listing our top 5 Fantasy Premier League bargain goalkeepers.
Recommendations include players from Middlesbrough, West Brom, Burnley, Leicester and Stoke.
Víctor Valdés, Middlesbrough – £4.5m
Still only 34, the Barcelona legend arrives at newly promoted Boro following last season’s low-key stint at Man Utd.
Ben Foster, West Brom – £4.5m
Tony Pulis sides tend to start seasons strongly defensively, and Foster is his number 1 once again following a long-term injury.
Tom Heaton, Burnley – £4.5m
The Clarets ‘keeper impressed during their 2014-15 Premier League campaign and is highly rated enough to have gone to Euro 2016 with England.
Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester – £5m
Last season’s title-winning goalkeeper does not start this season as one of the FPL’s most expensive, although the loss of N’Golo Kanté to Chelsea could be devastating.
Jack Butland, Stoke – £5m
The 23-year-old was the FPL’s highest points-scoring ‘keeper up until his injury last season, but he should be fit to start the new campaign.
