Fantasy Premier League Tips: Value is the big buzzword among the Fantasy Football Community this pre-season.
Given the prominence of premium defenders in recent times, managers are looking to tweak their approach for the Fantasy Premier League 2019/20 season with regard to value.
Legomane has crunched the numbers on player value in the following info graphic. Omitting reclassified players, we can see the points per match in specific target areas demonstrating the all important player value.
Are you getting value for money in your #FPL squad?

FPL Connect turned their infographic into an article analysing value in the midfield and forward positions. It also helps us to predict potential value of those players who’ve moved position in Fantasy Premier League this season.
📝 NEW ARTICLE 📝
Following on from the 'Player Value' screenshot earlier, here is the article with the value of the top 20 MIDs + top 15 FWDs ✅
Duelofeu/Jota have been moved from MID-FWD so have taken their value as FWDs.

Adam moves our attention to goalkeepers for his statistical based analysis. There’s some doubt on starting keepers at Southampton and Crystal Palace but Lloris is getting overlooked!

FPL Partridge has produced yet another entertaining video considering one of FPL’s most popular player. Raul Jimenez is going to struggle to provide value following his steep price rise for the 2019/20 FPL season.
Unpopular option: Raul Jimenez doesn’t offer great value.
By my calculations he needs to hit 5.4 points per game (ppg) to justify 7.5m.
Last season he was on 4.8ppg, so I’d need him to improve on last season.
Will he do that? Not sure 🤷🏻♂️
Anyone disagree? pic.twitter.com/Cj4llVzscy

FPL Depression has also produced a thread on value, taking into account this years prices and last years points. It’s important to note the anomalies here when considering those value decisions.
THREAD on (selected) player value based on last season's points and this season's price:
PP£ = Points per £million
* = in a different position to last season
** = missed a lot of the season with injury or out of team

Andy from Let’s Talk FPL has all the reaction to the popular value discussion in his latest YouTube video. There’s plenty of high profile Fantasy Premier League players to be in consideration here.

Obviously lots to choose from so let me know who yours are.

Who Got The Assist also look at points per million but alter their algorithm to strip out the appearance points. Salah makes a high entry point despite his stiff price tag as the most expensive player in the game.

The FPL Editor set out some potential picks in an early pre-season tweet and also considered each position in turn. The discussion certainly got the Fantasy Premier League community talking.
How are we doing today #FPL lovers?
Who do you feel is the best value pick for each position, as of now?
GK – 1st choice @ Burnley 4.5
DF – VVD 6.5
MF – Sigurdsson 8.0
FW – King 6.5
GK & FW is where I feel the most indecisive on this one 🤔
