Join the Rush The Kop Fantasy Premier League!

According to an article on website Fantasy YIRMA (written by @FPLaddicts) the reason for that is largely to do with the fact that defence is position with the lowest average points potential.

Shot stoppers are vital assets of any side, racking up potentially crucial clean sheets that could make the difference at the end of the season.

"Clearly their price tags reflect the extra potential, so the real question is where to find the value in your team". So with that in mind, understand that you can get away with less at the four positions mentioned above, while collecting better players at the more important/more scarce running backs/wide receivers positions.

The Bears are expected to finish the season 7-9, giving them plenty of opportunities to play from behind, which typically equates to more passing yards - the Bears passed the ball 65 percent of the time when trailing by seven points or more last season compared to 56 percent of the time when tied or ahead.

City have recorded comprehensive wins against Real Madrid and Tottenham during an impressive warm-up programme and Toure says players are gradually adapting to Guardiola's system. I didn't buy a smartphone until the iPhone 3 came out because, "What the heck do I need the internet on my phone for?"

If, like us, you have been counting the days until the Premier League starts then you will know full well that we only have four days left to wait with Arsenal hosting Leicester on Friday night. Rookie tight ends are notorious for failing to live up to fantasy expectations, so provided Brate continues to play starter's snaps, he has a good chance to outscore Howard this season.

What are the best alternatives?

Free transfers can roll over into the next gameweek, but you can never have more than 2 at a time.

SBC's fantasy football league, "The SBC League of Legends", brings together a host of industry experts all looking to have their team's ingenious and original name carved onto the metaphoric trophy in May. Now in a Manchester United as his wish to compete in the Champions League came to fruition, fantasy managers appear convinced the move will be successful with the Belgian currently leading the captain poll by a landslide.

"It has not quite toppled the 3-4-3, yet, but it is beginning to look like a sensible method".

"Midfielders are certainly becoming more valuable commodities in the game".

The Saints have been handed the most generous opening fixtures, facing just one of last season's top eight (Man United) all the way through until gameweek 12 in November.

So which formation should I go for?

After the top ten there's a huge drop off in quality rushers, making it essential that you nab a top-tier guy if you can.

While many of us are confused as to which player will start, below are the 5 players who are definitely going to start and should be on your FPL list.

The key to FPL success is undoubtedly spotting a cheap player who will earn a lot of points for very little money.
