Biggest price rises in FPL

Discussing the biggest price rises in FPL for the 22/23 season. Using the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area to look at some of their numbers and data to see how these players took such a price hike.

Price rises can be a huge indication of players that had positive seasons for their clubs and in FPL. These prices can sometimes be off putting which eventually makes them less owned creating a more open field and increasing competitive edge within the game.

Son-Tottenham

Taking one of the biggest price rises in the game from £10m to £12m is Tottenham midfielder Son. This is completely justified as he equalled Salah’s goal scoring total for the last season which lead to both players sharing the golden boot.

If Son’s 23 goals and seven assists aren’t deemed enough to tempt FPL players in the new season the fixtures might be. Spurs play Southampton, Wolves and newly promoted side Nottingham Forest in the first four fixtures.

At the time of writing Son takes up a position in 26% of teams in the game. Many would argue that is quite low for a player who just had a season like he did.

Bowen-West Ham

The midfielder surprised everyone with nothing short of a heroic season. His 12 goals and 10 assists helped him become one of the highest scoring players in FPL last season with over 200 points to his name.

Bowen takes a price rise of £2m from £6.5m to £8.5m. The problem being is although he had a fantastic season last campaign West Ham start the season with tough fixtures. They play Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea in their first six game weeks. Not just this but Bowen comes in at £0,5m more than options like Luis Diaz, Mason Mount, and Mahrez who all have better starting fixtures.

Kulusevski-Tottenham

Swedish international came in as a late signing in January last season which meant he had to hit the ground running to warrant a price rise this big. Kulusevski started 14 matches in the league for Tottenham scoring five goals and creating eight assists.

From £6m to £8m the midfielder took a £2m price rise. Playing alongside star players Son and Kane arguably makes him an even better option. The arrival of Richarlison has raised some questions regarding his potential minutes however. This means Kulusevski could be one watch at the start of the season.

James Maddison-Leicester

A great overall season for the foxes. The Leicester attacker successfully dominated underlying stats across the board for distribution and goal threat amongst midfielders. His 12 goals and eight assists helped him to secure an FPL price increase of £1m, from £7m to £8m.

Playing Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United is not an ideal start to the season. FPL players will likely invest but most only when fixtures improve.

Joao Cancelo-Man City

One of the highest scoring players in FPL last season and a player many may deem as an essential going into the new season. Joao Cancelo came in at cool £6m last season but his performances meant the Portuguese defender took a £1m price rise up to £7m.

Matip-Liverpool

Liverpool consistently show one of the best defences in the league and thats reflected in players like Trent and Robertson. One player that did go under the radar in terms of ownership was centre back Matip. Coming in at a surprisingly low price when looking back of £5m Matip has now took a price rise of £1m up to £6m. Still a very good price considering he was one of the value assets in the game last campaign.
