Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 12 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 12 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Leeds United, Southampton and Manchester City.

🌟 Zouma/James CHE, £5.6m/£5.2m

Ben Chilwell has emerged as a popular pick, but Kurt Zouma and Reece James underlined their value with attacking returns in the 3-1 win over Leeds.

Zouma’s scored four goals now and the frequency of his chances – not to mention his imperious leap – suggests more to come.

As for James, he seems well established as first choice now and could get more assists with Olivier Giroud in the middle to aim at.

Next up for Chelsea, a trip to out-of-form Everton.

🌟 Eric Dier TOT, £4.9m

An affordable way into a Spurs defence that has kept four consecutive clean sheets going into Sunday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

🌟 Luke Ayling LEE, £4.5m

He’s been getting into some great attacking positions recently, without the attacking returns to show for it – but that could well be just a matter of time.

Up next for a Leed side who’d kept back-to-back clean sheets prior to the 3-1 defeat at Chelsea, a home fixture against West Ham that could well be tight.

🌟 Kyle Walker-Peters SOU, £4.6m

Southampton play at home to a Sheffield United team that sits bottom of the table and without a win all season.

🌟 John Stones MCI, £4.8m

Remains to be seen if he can nail down his starting spot, but he’s impressed in recent games and could prove great value as a way into City’s defence.

Mind you, a derby at Old Trafford might not be the best place to start.
