More Clean Sheets - Best Defenders in Fantasy Premier League

What makes a great defender for your fantasy soccer team? He of course has to play in a winning team. He of course has to play often and whole games. If he scores a goal or gives an assist now and then that is a big plus. Of course we wouldnt mind if his price wouldnt be too much either.

So who are these denfenders. Take a look down for my tips.

Over £6M

Last season of fantasy premier league is of course the best place to start searching for your defenders. Everton's Leighton Baines collected 178 points, mostly due to his 5 goals and 11 assists. Great effort for sure, but I think his price of £8M is too much this season. Out of the more expensive players I'd go for Ashley Cole of Chelsea and Nemanja Vidic of ManU. They collected 150 and 148 points last season, but are more likely to keep to their points or increase them than Baines. One player that costs even £6M is Stoke City's Robert Huth. He scored 6 goals last season and gave 3 assists. And for Huth, the price truly is right.

Under £6M

When you get a Chelsea defender for £5M you're probably making a bargain. Paulo Ferreira is just that. From Everton you can also find couple of players whose price doesn't necessarily correlate to their skill. Both Sylvain Distin and Phil Jagielka have the pricetag of £5.5M. Both are good picks for your fantasy premier league team. At £6M sharp there is also Gael Clichy who transferred from Arsenal to ManCity.

Hope these tips are helpfull and you choose the best team possible as your fantasy premier league team.
