Premier Fantasy League Gameweek 2 Tips


The second gameweek in this season's English Premiership Fantasy Football comes in just few days after the first, so be sure you remember to check your team for transfers and a captain change if the need occurs.

As said earlier this gameweek is a little tricky because only 12 teams have fixtures this week of English Premier League. The fixtures are:

Sunderland vs Chelsea
Wigan vs Wolves
Birmingham vs Portsmouth
Burnley vs Manchester United
Hull City vs Tottenham
Liverpool vs Stoke City

Any players that are not from these teams WON'T get any points this gameweek.

If you choose to make transfers, here are few hints who might be valuable additions to your Fantasy Premier League team: Let's start with defenders. Manchester United and Wigan are the teams you should choose your defenders from. Evra, O'Shea, Figureoa, Bramble are players that are very likely to get clean sheet points.

Midfielder choices are a little tougher task. Chelsea's season opening wasn't glamorous but I'm sure Lampard and the gang are going to get their act together versus Sunderland. Wigan's Koumas and N'Zogbia are great budget choices for your team with 5M and 5.5M pricetags.

From forwards Chelsea's Drogba might still be an advantageous play, along with Rooney from ManU. But if these 2 players are out of your pricerange, Wigan has a nice budget player from forwards also. Hugo Rodallega opened the season with a goal and 3 bonus points, and with the cost of 6.5M he might be a great player to purchase.

Torres is a great player, but i'm feeling something odd in Liverpool this season. If the team does find the winning streak, Torres is going make lots of points. I think he's little overpriced, though.
