There’s plenty of player picks to consider from the community for the Gameweek 3 preview.
Which of these players are you looking to bring in ahead of the Fantasy Premier League deadline?
De Gea looks to be an excellent goalkeeper option for the Gameweek 3 preview. He’s got great clean sheet prospects in his upcoming fixtures, plus save and bonus point potential too.
GW1&2 (Top 10)
– Surprise winner De Gea 🔴
– Henderson winning the battle of the budget goalkeepers ATM🗡️
– Surprise entrant Leno 🔴
– Highest number of saves Lloris ⚪
– ❌Heaton❌: Not in the top 10

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is also available as a promising option in the Manchester United backline. His rate of tackles always puts him in the frame for bonus points, he just needs to brush up on his attacking returns.

Coming in as an out of position player at a bargain basement price, the Scoutcast were very happy with his 14 point haul. He could be a great acquisition for the long-term.

With Digne flagged, Mina could be another way into a solid Everton defence. He’s finally nailed down a starting berth in the squad and can be a real threat from set pieces too.
If your looking for a cheap Digne replacement with great fixtures look at Yerry Mina:
🔵 Excellent against Watford
🔵 Nailed on this season
🔵 3 Bonus points vs Palace
🔵 Threat from set peices
At £5.5M and 1.9% ownership he could be a great differential! #FPL

De Bruyne managed to post some impressive numbers in Gameweek 2 and looks to be back to his absolute best following last seasons injury problems. The opposition is about to get easier too.
KDB – 9 key passes, 4 shots, xA 1.47, xG 0.25 – pretty immense. £9.5m
Kane – 1 shot, xA 0.00, xG 0.01 – pretty abysmal. £11m

Mane stole Salah’s thunder last weekend and it could be a sign of things to come. Will compares the two and it’s the Senegalese winger who comes out on top.
Small sample size, but as a Salah owner, this has me worried
xG = 0.62
xA = 1.00
xATT = 6.1

Arsenal’s Ceballos has certainly impressed to date: he’s dominating set pieces, creating chances and chipping in with assists. At this budget price, he could be a great acquisition for the season.
Ceballos playing in the number 10 role. £5.5 mill. I’m interested! 🤔👀

Those looking for a bargain basement midfield need to look no further than Todd Cantwell. He’s benefited from others injuries and is the perfect assister to Pukki in this attacking lineup.
5) Cantwell (NOR) – CHE whm MCI bur cry
5 key passes
1 big chance created
1 shot on target
✅at £4.5m excellent value
❎rotation risk – only started 18 matches last season

After Pogba’s dismal display in the Monday Night Football, it looks like Rashford could be an even more promising option for the season. He’s likely to dominate penalties now and has returned in both games to date.
Pogba should never be let near a penalty again.
Give them to Rashford. Simple.

Pukki’s ownership has sky rocketed thanks to that impressive hat-trick last weekend. There’s huge potential here if he can maintain his current levels throughout the season.
I find it useful to make a bull case & bear case for potential transfers.
The 🐃 case is he scores 15-20 goals & rises to 7.5M+
The 🐻 case is he only scores a further 5 goals all season.
Potential upside is huge, downside is performing as a 6.5 striker should.

Finally, Kane might be the forgotten man after his performance against City, but there’s an enticing fixture this weekend which could put him right back into our thinking this season.
Not owning Kane vs Newcastle when they play the final game of the weekend will be soul crushing.
