Community XI: The Best FPL Goalkeepers for Fantasy Premier League 2019/20


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.

1. Betfair

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.

2. Hints

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.

3. General

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.

4. Family

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.

5. Bet

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.


6. Editor

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.

7. Joe

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.

8. Pundits

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.

9. Physio

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.

10. Neil

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.
