If you are shopping for a new defender or goalkeeper in the FPL Gameweek 6 tips, take a look at the latest chart from Ted Talks FPL first. It’s clear that Martinez is the best cheap goalkeeper to go for and there’s value in the Aston Villa defence too. The whipping boys are coming into view.
? Defence ?
Martinez @ AVL looks the best GKP option so far. Villa have conceded the fewest big chances even when adjusting their numbers as if they had played 5 games. They are restricting their opponents to small chances, which is good for Martinez's save potential.#FPL pic.twitter.com/ez3oWxxz0L

The volume of penalties in the opening weeks has skewed much of the attack data, but a lot can be learnt from looking at non penalty xG. Fantasy Football Scout crunch the numbers, with Calvert-Lewin in poll position. Three other forwards make up to the top four on merit.

One premium player providing relative consistency this season is Mo Salah, with many managers awarding him the armband being rewarded themselves. His record at home is incredible and one that ought to be backed ahead of a home game against Sheffield United.
Salah at home in PL
Played – 58
Goals – 50
Assists – 20
Mins per goal or assist – 71

Early press conference news on Thursday brought shock for the fantasy community, with news that James Rodriguez will not be available for Everton this weekend. It will come as a blow to over 40% of managers who own him, with no real guidance on when he will be back.
Rodriguez is ruled out of the #SaintsFC fixture: “Unfortunately, James had a problem during the game [vs LFC],” Ancelotti told evertontv. “He had a mistimed tackle with van Dijk at the beginning of the game. I think he will not be available for the game against Southampton." #EFC
