Luke Thunshot has done a phenomenal job of previewing each team for the 4 weeks to go preview. This Twitter thread is very informative, looking at value and must own players.
Cech/Leno (£5.0) could be great value for whoever is the league starter.
Defense still feels like a minefield of rotation, but keep your eye on Kolasinac (£5.0) and Sokratis (£5.0).
Özil (£8.5) and especially Mkhitaryan (£7.0) feels underpriced.

It’s the promoted sides that make up a possible budget defence that costs just 22.5 million. With many premium teams set for a steady start after the World Cup, the temporary risk may pay off.
??THE BUDGET DEFENCE ??
✅Max spend 22.5
✅Until wildcard GW1-8
✅Only ONE top-six team!
✅Possibly two playing 4.0 DFs
CPA Tomkins 4.5, Wan-Bissaka 4.0 ❔
BOU Daniels 4.5
SOT Cédric 4.5, Bednarek 4.0 ❔
CAR Bennett 4.5
FUL Ream 4.5

The decision of whether to include Mo Salah in Gameweek 1 is tricky. Over 1,000 managers voted in the Fantasy Football Pundits poll. He’s likely to have an ownership of 50%, despite a big price increase.
