5 Potential Fantasy League Bargains From Newly Promoted Clubs
Struggling to decide who to pick for your fantasy league side? Don't worry we all are. Here are some players we think are good value for money from the sides promoted from the Championship who could be surprise stars of your team and save you some money to bring in those bigger hitters...
Andre Gray // Burnley // Forward // £6.5m
While Andre Gray might not have any Premier League experience, his goalscoring pedigree means, for 6.5m, the Burnley frontman could be a decent shout. Gray makes his Premier League season debut after a successful Championship campaign which saw him finish with 23 goals and 4 assists. His pace, power and eye for goal suggest Andre Gray can make the step up into the top flight and flourish.
George Friend // Middlesbrough // Defender // £4.5m
Abel Hernandez // Hull City // Forward //
Middlesbrough defender George Friend looks to be a good shout for a cheap option to save you some money. At 4.5m you'll get a left back who was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Year two years running in a strong looking Boro defence.
Abel Hernandez // Hull City // Forward // £6.0m
He may have struggled during his first Premier League season with Hull, but don't let that put you off Abel Hernandez. The Uruguayan was on fire last season finding the back of the net 21 times and seems to now be enjoying his football in England. Hernandez will be key to Hull's survival hopes and at £6.0m he could be a real steal.
Albert Adomah // Middlesbrough // Midfielder // £5.5m
Middlesbrough have made a lot of signings this summer so you'll be forgiven for forgetting they already had some good talent in their ranks. Albert Adomah may not attract the attention that Viktor Fischer will but the winger has been a consistent performer for Boro over the last few seasons. Scoring 24 goals over the last three seasons, Adomah certainly knows where the goal is and has been an ever present recently. At £5.5m, and very little takers so far, he could be a fantastic shout for unexpected points.
Michael Keane // Burnley // Defender // £5.0m
Former Manchester United defender, Michael Keane has become a vital part of Sean Dyche's Burnley. The centre half was part of a Burnley defence which kept an impressive 20 clean sheets over the course of the season, but there's even more to his game than that. Keane is also a massive threat in the air from set pieces, netting 5 times in the Championship last term. £5.0m for a goalscoring centre back in a strong unit (albeit in the Championship) could be good value.
