Five best fantasy football players

Take a look at these elite Telegraph Fantasy Football tips below:

Mo Salah (£7.0m)

Last season’s top points-scorer has been reclassified as a forward, but that won’t put off Telegraph Fantasy Football managers. The Egyptian superstar tends to start seasons quickly, and with Liverpool having a generous set of opening fixtures – (Fulham (A), Crystal Palace (H), Man Utd (A), Bournemouth (H), Newcastle (H) – only the brave won’t have the game’s most expensive player in their starting XIs.

Erling Haland (£6.9m)

New arrivals to the Premier League often fall into the ‘wait and see’ category. For every Sergio Aguero there is a Timo Werner, and strikers for top teams will always come with hefty fantasy price tags. However, adding a player who has 62 Bundesliga goals in just 67 appearances over the last two-and-a-half seasons to a Manchester City side who have just won the league and create an abundance of chances, is as close to a sure- fire success as we’re likely to find.

Throw into the mix the Citizens’ great opening fixtures – (West Ham (A), Bournemouth (H), Newcastle (A), Crystal Palace (H), Nott’m Forest (H) – and the Norwegian sensation looks worth the initial outlay.

Bruno Guimaraes (£3.6m)

After appearance points, there are only three ways for midfielders to score points – assists, goals, and tackles. The Toon Army’s Brazilian January recruit offers all three-in only 11 starts and six substitute appearances since his arrival from him, he racked up an impressive 45 successful tackles, six goals, and an assist, averaging 4.18 points per appearance. Priced at the lower end of the mid-price bracket, the Newcastle man is a shrewd addition to free up budget.

Aymeric Laporte (£4.5m)

Some may feel that João Cancelo (£5.4m) should be in this slot, but a defender from one of the top two defensive sides in the league, who is likely to play the majority of games he is available for, is too good to ignore at his price.

Ibrahima Konaté (£4.0m) and Joel Matip (£4.4m) are cheaper options from Manchester City’s closest title rivals, but it isn’t clear who will play most minutes alongside stalwart Virgil Van Dijk (£5.3m), and with a more prolonged FA Cup run next season Laporte could better last term’s impressive 167-point return.

Alisson (£4.5m)

The second-best value player in the game last season, with a points-per-price figure of 49.3, has only had a £0.2m price increase. It was thought that the inclusion of the shots-saved bonus would enhance the appeal of goalkeepers from bottom-half sides in the Premier League, but of the five goalkeepers that appeared in the top 20 for value last season, each played for sides that finished. in the top half. The Brazilian shot stopper offers a cheap route into a Reds backline that kept 23 eligible clean sheets in 2021-22.
