Norwich finished bottom of the Premier League and were the first team to be relegated back to the Championship. Whilst the majority of Norwich players will not play in the Premier League next season, some may get transfers and stay in the league. The players who remain at Norwich will be part of the Championship fantasy game. We take a look at who the best Norwich picks were in the 2021/22 season.
Norwich assets were often used by FPL managers as budget enablers this season. The likes of Brandon Williams, Billy Gilmour and Teemu Pukki, all offered great value for money.
