Paneorder assesses the leading options in the 4.0m bracket and explains why Spurs’ new No 1 could be the best pick.
Paneorder takes a look at the 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League player list, assessing the best options on the bench according to position and price.
Fraser Forster (TOT) 4.0m
Despite claiming only 3 clean sheets last season, Tottenham Hotspur’s Foester was the first top-scoring goalkeeper in his price bracket on 40 points.
That points tally was 1 more than Mark Travers (4.0m) of Bournemouth, whose 3 clean sheets earned him the loan transfer to Stoke City in the upcoming season.
The option to pair the new stopper with his deputy Vicario (5.0m) guarantees you a starting goalkeeper for a total spend of just 9.0m.
Forester’s potential for both save and bonus points further boosts his appeal as the go-to option in the lowest price bracket.
Indeed, he is currently the second most-owned goalkeeper in this price range, sitting in 5.6 per cent of squads.
Alphonse Areola (WHU) 4.0m
The Frenchman turned in a series of impressive displays after a securing a starting role for West Ham United in a short period of time last season.
It remains to be seen if Areola will continue in goal for the Irons, with regular starter Fabianski (4.5m) now back to the starting lineup in pre-season matches.
But if he does establish himself as West Ham United’s No 2, Areola can be factor in FPL this term. Both keepers’ are low. And you just need 8.5m budget to acquire both.
Thomas Strakosha or Ellery Balcombe (BRE) 4.0m
The competition for the goalkeeper’s jersey at Brentford can also help managers find value between the posts.
Players often produce their best hauls in matches which score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), so wouldn’t it be handy if Fantasy Premier League managers could guarantee as many fixtures for their No. 1 and No. 2 goalkeepers as possible?
Refreshed and with newfound gratitude, both 4.0m goalkeepers were back playing within a year after Raya heroics last season, before spending 1-2 years as understudy to Raya (5.0m) last season.
This shows why selecting two budget (4.0m) goalkeepers who offer multiple routes to returns can often be a better tactics, allowing managers to save funds and have a bumper budget to spend in attack.
There is no doubt that Forster looks a strong pick for managers who prefer to invest least money in goal and he may well end the campaign as top-scoring valued goalkeeper in Fantasy.
But as Raya showed last season, picking a 4.5m-priced ‘keeper who can offer plenty of save and bonus points, as well as clean sheets, may prove more beneficial.
The team sheets during pre-season should help clarify Frank’s preferred choice for 2023/24 FPL.
The wantaway No 1 started every match last term.
If David Raya (5.0m) stays at Brentford, I’ll likely pick another 4.0m goalkeeper, his understudy No 1 Strakosha. But if he leaves, it opens the door for his understudy No 2 Balcombe to step up and make the shirt his own. I’ll be keeping an eye on minutes played in pre-season, as these two stoppers are my first-choice goalkeeper pairings (8.0m) could start, warm the bench and shine in the early kind run of fixtures even if Raya remains at the club.
Brentford’s understudy No. 1 kept one clean sheet in pre-season summer series. This is a 4.0m goalkeeper in his prime.
For Bees’ goalkeeper bench option, the understudy No. 2 (4.0m) could prove a handy rotation pick with No. 1 for a combined cost of 8.0m.
Your whole formation potential from the outset easily makes you gain the extra initial outlay over by drafting two 4.0m goalkeepers. The funds allow for a premium attackers’ group, including Haaland, Kane, Salah, Saka and Rashford.
