Do Not Sell My Personal Information

FFC’s Fantasy Football expert discusses this week’s big value picks…

It’s almost time to lock in your FPL team for game week 8 but, if you’re like me, there are still some huge decision to be made.

Does Zlatan Ibrahimovic stay or does he go? Should I gamble on captaining Aguero given his record in GW8 over the years? Is it worth taking a gamble on an inform Christian Benteke?

It’s Benteke who actually got me thinking earlier in the week. The striker banged in a hat-trick for Belgium and has three goals in his last four Premier League fixtures for Palace. Surely he’s worth a punt, perhaps even a replacement for the misfiring and very expensive Zlatan?

I took that conversation on to our weekly slot on FanTV earlier this week to discuss why bringing Benteke in is worth considering, and I compared him with Zlatan and Aguero, the two most sought after strikers on the game…

I also touched upon the importance of looking at average points per 90 minutes, as this is where real value can be had when making your transfers.

Instead of just trying to crowbar big names or seemingly high scoring form players in your team just because everyone else is doing it, sometimes it’s worth looking about for some value in the players who aren’t owned by many other FPL teams, but still return a good points per 90 average.

And you can’t get better value at the moment than Juan Mata…

As you can see, he is only owned by 2.5% of FPL teams but he’s still averaging just under seven points per 90 minutes. That’s really, really good value!
