Every summer Official FPL revisit the prices of FPL assets before the launch of the new game.

Fernandes was FPLs top scorer in the 2020/21 season. He also started the 2021/22 season with a hat-trick in Gameweek 1. As a result FPL managers were expecting him to have another great season.

When Lukaku joined Chelsea many FPL managers were excited. Priced at £11.5m he was siginificanty cheaper than the likes of Harry Kane and Ronaldo and therefore he was tempting. However, Lukaku only scored 87 points this season. As a result if Lukaku stays at Chelsea for the 2022/23 season then managers expect to see his price reduced.
Bamford was hugely popular with FPL managers in the 2020/21 season and his good returns saw him rise in price. The Leeds striker saw a price increase of £2.5m for the 2021/22 season. He started 2021/22 at £8m up from £5.5m the previous campaign. However, injury has meant that he has only played in nine matches this season, in that time earning just 28 points. As a result FPL managers are expecting a price drop for 2022/23.
