Fantasy Premier League: Five players you should consider for GW5

With the international break coming to an end, it means the return of Premier League football is just around the corner – and with that comes the return of Fantasy Premier League football too.

Gameweek 4 turned out to be one of the most surprising and unpredictable we have seen for some time, with players such as Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish topping the points tallies after Aston Villa’s  7-2 romping of Liverpool.

A new gameweek means new transfers in an attempt to strengthen your squads ahead of the deadline for the first game of the weekend – Everton vs Liverpool.

There are plenty of big games this weekend, with plenty of great opportunities for points, so let’s take a look at five players you should consider transfering into your fantasy team (if you haven’t already)…

James Rodriguez – £7.8m


The Colombian has been a revelation for Everton’s midfield since signing from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window – and has picked up points aplenty throughout the past few game weeks.

Against Brighton, Rodriguez picked up 18 points for his 2 goals and assist, and this week the Toffees face Liverpool in his first Merseyside derby for the club. Despite the level of opposition, Everton have had a great start to the season and look the strongest they have ever been – so they will be optimistic going into the game against a Reds side that lost 7-2 to Aston Villa during GW4.

The clubs following two fixtures against Southampton and Newcastle will also be great chances for the 29-year-old to continue his run of form and points scoring and for just £7.8m, that’s something worth thinking about.

More than 591,000 FPL users have transferred him in ahead of GW5, so maybe you should too!
