2019/20 Fantasy Premier League Price Reveals – Fantasy Football Tips

Fantasy Premier League have released the first player prices and although the 2019/20 Premier League season is still be over a month away, but many FPL addicts are keen to start planning for the new season. Not only have we seen five player price reveals, but we have also seen the first player positional reclassification.

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m)

Fabianski started last season at £4.5m and has a +£0.5m price rise this season, starting at £5.0m. The Polish goalkeeper scored a total of 143 points, being the sixth highest out of all the goalkeepers last season. Fabianski did make the most saves across the 2018/19 Premier League season, with 148, 7 more than second highest Etheridge and 20 more than third highest Foster.

Fabianski managed to pick up 15 bonus points in the process of the 2018/19 Premier League season, being second highest in the goalkeeper category and managed 7 clean sheets in the process. West Ham opening five fixtures include; Manchester City (H), Brighton (A), Watford (A), Norwich (H) and Aston Villa (A). Apart from the opening game, these fixtures aren’t bad and many fantasy managers were looking for a £4.5m rotational pair with Wolves; however with Fabianski coming in at £5.0m, there may be better options.

Andrew Robertson (£7.0m)

Liverpool’s wing back has seen a +£1.0m increase in his staring price this season, starting at £7.0m versus £6.0m last season. Robertson scored the highest amount of points by any defender last season, scoring 213 points.

Robertson didn’t manage to find the back of the net, but managed the second highest number of assists with 12, only beaten by teammate Alexander-Arnold with 13. The Scotsman also picked up 21 clean sheets and 29 bonus points in the process, both highest in the defensive category.

Liverpool’s opening five fixtures include; Norwich (H), Southampton (A), Arsenal (H), Burnley (A) and Newcastle (H). These fixtures are favourable and it will be interesting to see what price Alexander- Arnold is this season as it’s looking likely that most managers will have one or both wing backs at the start of the season.

Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m)

The Leicester City defender has had a +£1.0m price increase on last season’s starting price of £5.0m, with him starting the 2019/20 season at £6.0m. Last season Pereira scored a total of 146 points, being 10th among defenders, scoring 2 goals and creating 8 in the process.

Pereira managed to help Leicester City to 10 clean sheets and starts the season with a first five fixtures of Wolves (H), Chelsea (A), Sheffield United (A), Bournemouth (H) and Manchester United (A).

Ryan Fraser (£7.5m)

Bournemouth’s creative midfielder has been handed a whopping +£2.0m price increase on last season’s starting price of £5.5m, starting the 2019/20 season at £7.5m. Last season Fraser scored a total of 181 points, scoring 7 goals and creating 14 assists. Fraser also scored the fifth highest number of bonus points amongst the midfielders, scoring 29.

During the 2018/19 Premier League season Fraser created 28 big chances, no other midfielder managed more. Bournemouth have an opening five fixtures of Sheffield United (H), Aston Villa (A), Manchester City (H), Leicester City (A) and Everton (H). The first two fixtures are favourable and a Bournemouth attacker may be popular in gameweek 1 teams, especially for those planning to wildcard early.

Matt Ritchie (£5.5m)

Newcastle’s Matt Ritchie was the only player revealed who had a price reduction from the previous season, as he has had a reduction in his starting price from £6.0m to £5.5m. That said, Ritchie has seen a positional change, as he will now be classified as a defender not a midfielder as he was last season.

Last season Ritchie managed to score 110 points as a midfielder, this would have been 168 points as a defender, picking up 5 extra points for a clean sheet and an additional point for each goal scored. This score would have been the fifth highest from a defender last season. It should also be noted that Ritchie created 60 chances during the course of last season, with Lucas Digne being the only defender to create more (71).

It remains to be seen how Ritchie will be utilised in the coming season with Newcastle currently without a manager, but if he is pulled further forward then he could be classed as OOP (out of position) and be a source of value for FPL managers. Newcastle have a tough start to the Premier league season, with a first five against; Arsenal (H), Norwich (A), Tottenham (A), Watford (H) and Liverpool (A), but with VAR and Ritchie on penalties he could be a popular pick this season.
