The new Premier League season is just around the corner and it mean’s Fantasy Football is back!
With focus on Tottenham Hotspur, who had a rather conflict filled previous campaign despite their Europa League finish, there are some standout players worth taking a look at in regards to different positions and value.
One defender, one midfield, one forward, one worth a punt, and one budget players are the categories which were used in selected FIVE Spurs players to consider for your fantasy team.

Jan Vertonghen is the most reasonable pick because of his five goals in his first season at Tottenham. Despite failing to replicate that form, a change in management with the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino seems to have given the side a much needed boost. He picked up 91 points last time around but is capable of a lot more having gotten 136 the season before.
For Vertonghen to be a worthy pick, he and his team mates will need to make sure they don’t repeat their horrible defensive record from the previous season. At 6.0, he is considered to be rather pricey defender, but on the plus side, he should be one of the first names on the team-sheet.
Lewis Holtby could be a very good choice because he has already netted two pre-season goals, which will most probably catch the eye of his manager. With the start of the new campaign getting nearer, his form could mean that Mauricio Pochettino may select him as a starter despite being on loan at Fulham.
Priced at 6.0, he needs to keep his string of performances going or risk losing his place in the highly competitive midfield role. However, he is the most reasonable pick when it comes down to which one of the players can produce results for the least amount.
Roberto Soldado has already netted two pre-season goals despite his huge goal drought the previous season. He has been linked with a return to Spain due to his drop in form throughout the campaign, but with his scoring abilities likely to return, he could even get the nod over usual striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
Priced at 8.0, it looks as though he is only the rise again after notching two pre-season goals on tour. With only Adebayor and Harry Kane to battle for place against, Soldado looks to be in pole position for the attacking role.
The huge purchase of Erik Lamela was met with a even larger injury which saw him miss pretty much the entire season. However, he has been working himself throughout his break to stay fit and by scoring three goals on his pre-season; the best is yet to come from the 22-year-old.
Priced at 8.0, he only got 14 points the previous season after managing to get a few games in before eventually getting hurt once again. Although he is considered a huge flop given the price they paid for him, this could be his year to silence his critics.
New signing Ben Davies is priced at a very reasonable 5.0 and looks certain to be Tottenham’s first choice left back. Playing down the flanks increases the possibility of him grabbing an assist from a cross hence giving a higher potential of extra points.
At this price and quite a sure chance to become a regular, his value can surely increase if Mauricio Pochettino can replicate his tactics and mentality we’ve seen during his time in charge of Southampton.
