Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 30+ defenders round-up

Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 30+ defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Sheffield United, Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

🌟 John Lundstram SHU, £4.9m

He may have been in and out of the side prior to football going on hold for the coronavirus, but if he starts then he’s fantasy gold for a Double Gameweek.

Will he start? Well, he just scored twice in a friendly match, and word is that his main competitor for a midfield slot – namely Sander Berge – has picked up an injury.

With fixtures away to struggling duo Aston Villa and Newcastle, you could pretty much pick any starting Blades defender and would even do well to double up.

But with his potential for goals and assists to go with the clean sheet bonus he’d get given he’s listed as a defender, Lundstram looks to have the highest ceiling.

🌟 Aymeric Laporte MCI, £6.3m

Scored big in Double Gameweeks past, and this time he’s got home matches against Arsenal and Burnley. However, given how little he’s played this season, will he start both?

Pep Guardiola’s proclivity for rotation and City’s absence of genuine title hopes are also factors to consider here.

🌟 Matt Doherty WOL, £6.3m

Wolves had kept four clean sheets in five prior to football going on hold, while Doherty had scored in back-to-back away games. On Saturday 20th, they go to West Ham.
