Three Fantasy Premier League assets to bring in before their price value shoots up
As the international break begins, Premier League coaches might earn a break. But that’s not the case with Fantasy Premier League managers.
Thousands have already activated their wild cards and will be aiming to bring in the players they need. A good reason for playing the wild card at this stage is that a few players’ values will rise during the two-week international break.
Playing your wildcard at this point of time will allow you to bring in the players whose values are set to rise over the two weeks. If a player is brought in before his value rises by £0.1m or £0.2m, the manager will receive the extra money. The wildcard allows you to make unlimited transfers, so you can bring in the players just before their value rises and sell him later at a higher price.
Here we take a look at three players whose prices might go up.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham)
Priced at a very reasonable £6.7million right now, the Serbian started the season at £6.5m. Mitrovic has picked up 4 goals in 4 games so far and chances are high that his price will go up before the Premier League returns.
Fulham’s next game in the league is away to Manchester City. Though it’s a predictable fixture on paper, the Cityzens have looked shaky at the back. Mitrovic will definitely pose a massive threat with his bullish approach on the ball.
The Cottagers’ next 6 fixtures are a kind run with just Arsenal in their way.
Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
The Senegalese winger scored 16,10,3 and 10 across the 4 gameweeks and has proven to be a major alternative to Mohamed Salah. While Mane was available at just £9.5m at the start of the season, his price has now risen to £9.9m.
The Liverpool winger’s price has risen massively so far and it’ll be no surprise if it touches £10m. Mane’s teammate Salah is priced at a whopping £13m. The Senegalese still looks an enticing prospect despite his price rise.
Jose Holebas (Watford)
Holebas produced double figure returns in 2 of his opening 4 games and has shown impressive early season form under Javi Gracia. The Greek international has picked up 1 goal and 4 assists in the 4 fixtures and is currently priced at £4.8m after starting the season at £4.5m.
The left-back is also in charge of set-pieces, which means there’s a good chance of him picking up points in every game.
Though Watford have a testing run of fixtures coming up, Holebas proved against Tottenham Hotspur that he’s a fixture proof fantasy asset.
