Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Everton, Brighton and Hove Albion and Sheffield United.

🌟 Yerry Mina EVE, £5.5m

Started the season with three bonus points from the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace and looks set for a proper run now Kurt Zouma’s back at Chelsea.

Last year’s World Cup showed his huge goal-scoring threat from set pieces so he’s looking a tempting option going into a good run of fixtures for Everton, starting at home to Watford.

🌟 Martín Montoya BHA, £4.5m

Brighton’s new right-back started the 3-0 opening day win at Watford and has back-to-back home games against West Ham and Southampton next up.

🌟 Jack O’Connell SHU, £4.5m

Sheffield United had the tightest defence in last season’s Championship they made a solid start to Premier League life, drawing 1-1 at Bournemouth.

Their next two matches are at home to Crystal Palace and Leicester, which could well yield a clean sheet or two if they’re to make an early start on making Brammall Lane a fortress.

🌟 CAUTION ADVISED: £4m defenders

Diego Rico, John Lundstram and Martin Kelly all started their teams’ opening games but it’s not clear that any of them will keep their places beyond the short term.
