Ederson and Mat Ryan are popular Fantasy Premier League goalkeepers for Gameweek 1.
It’s the Fantasy Football Community bringing their goalkeeepers roundup of articles, videos and tweets for your Fantasy Premier League Tips.
Over on the Betfair blog, I’ve selected five goalkeepers for you to consider for your Gameweek 1 team. The picks include a Headline, Value and VAR pick. There’s much more to come in this positional series.

FPL Hints is on the hunt for goalkeepers who rotate well long-term: it’s not a position FPL managers like to use a transfer on in the early phases of the season. £9.5 million will get a favourable selection for the first 12 weeks.
Very decent BHA/WHU (Ryan/Fabianski ) long-term rotation from GW1-GW12 in @OfficialFPL:
Home games: 7
Newly promoted: 4
Bottom half teams: 7
Top half teams: 1

On the lookout for a bargain, FPL General has identified Burnley’s goalkeepers as a traditional source of fantasy points. After a disappointing campaign last time around, Pope could be set to improve their fortunes.
2014/15 – Heaton (3420 minutes) – 10 CSs – 150 pts (11 bonus)
2016/17 – Heaton (3150 minutes) – 10 CSs – 149 pts (21 bonus)
2017/18 – Pope (3144 minutes) – 152 pts (19 bonus)
2018/19 – Alisson, Ederson & Pickford only GKs to score 150+
Fabianski (15) top bonus

Diehard Liverpool fan, FPL Family (Lee) is backing premium option Alisson to provide big fantasy points this season. He’s currently the most popular option in the game, despite a price increase.

Although many managers attentions will be turned to goalkeepers at each extreme of the budget, Fantasy Bet have the mid-priced options covered. One of these fantasy assets kept 18 clean sheets just two seasons ago.
With decent budget #FPL goalkeepers about as rare as a triple captain return, 2019/20 might be the season to turn to the mid-priced bracket.

The FPL Editor’s options have a big price difference to consider. In a very popular Twitter thread, he analyses the age old question of whether to go premium or budget.
GK thread | premium vs. budget
Ederson costs exactly 33.3333334% more than a 4.5
Can a 4.5 keep parity with Ederson using that 33.3333334% handicap? If so, then the 1.5 saving could be the difference between a Sigurdsson over a Redmond & a VVD over an Aké
Here’s a breakdown ??

Joe from Fantasy Football Scout has been busy considering the best way of investing in the Manchester City defence, with Ederson providing a double saving over Laporte. There’s also a rotation to consider.
Ederson + 4.0 keeper + 4.5 def = 14.5m
2×4.5 keepers + Laporte = 15.5m #FPL

New signing Scott, from Fantasy Football Pundits, has chosen three differential goalkeepers to consider. Jordan Pickford is tipped as the one to have from this trio of options.

With cash particularly tight this season, the FPL Physio is tipping Manchester City’s Ederson as the premium keeper to own. This could change if a nailed on left back is available at City for just 5.5 million though.
Seen plenty of great threads on premium keepers and whether it is worth it or not.
In my head, it’s quite simple.
– I want Man City defensive cover, options are Ederson or Laporte.
– One is cheaper than the other!
Until we know more about the LB situation, I’m set on Eddie.

Thread guru, Neil, is leaning towards opting for a budget set-and-forget keeper with the backup for a cheap 8.5 million. There’s uncertainty at Brighton though under relatively new manager, Graham Potter.
I’m leaning more & more towards Matt Ryan as a 4.5M set & forget:
Only (current) certain #1 4.5M from non-promoted teams.
Ryan & Button = King & Heir.
Best opening 6 fixtures of 4.5 GKs.
Potter likely to play more attacking leading to increased number of save points (imo).
