Halfway there - A look at the first half of Fantasy Premier League

Hi again!

And again sorry for the lack of posts, I sadly haven't been able to write this blog for the last few months, but hopefully I'm back for good this time.

But as the title says, it's time to take a look at the first half of the ongoing fantasy premier league season. Who have been player with most flare and who do you want to have on your team as the second half of the season unravels.


There isn't too much to argue when looking for the top goalkeeper of the first half. It's of course Manchester City's Joe Hart. Hart has collected an astonishing 103 points, which is a great number for a goalkeeper. At the time of the writing Hart tied as the 7th highest pointscorer in the whole league. A definite hot tip for fantasy premier league for the remaining of the season.

When it comes to defender's though, choosing a player isn't all that easy. There hasn't been any player who has outperformed others this season. As this is the case I choose Stoke City's Robert Huth as the top defender of the first 50% of the FPL season. Other hot tips for fantasy premier league defenders include ManU's Evra and Vidic.

Midfieldels have usually been the players who dominate fantasy premier league pointswise, but that doesn't appear to be the case this season. And with the big players as Lampard and Fabregas having been injured for the majority of the time, the top scoring midfielders haven't been able the make such an impression. Even though not leading the pack, I choose Tottenhams Rafael Van der Vaart as the top midfielder.

Perhaps the biggest surprises of the season have been seen in the forwards-category. Players like Elmander, Carroll and Davies have kept the top spot for many gameweeks even though none of those players has pricetag over 7M. The last few gameweeks have put Tevez and Drogba again in the top, but the top striker of the first half must be Bolton's Johan Elmander.

That's all for now, I'll be back with the tips for the gameweek 22 of the fantasy premier league in a few days.
