Fantasy Premier League: Top 5 Budget Defenders you should pick
What is it that any Fantasy Premier League manager expects of a defender?
It's simple-- just keeping a clean sheet. A clean sheet that gives 6 valuable points.
We cannot have all defenders assisting and scoring goals every other day. If you are trying to do that, you'll realize that it is a serious waste of money. Instead, if you have economical defenders giving you those valuable 6 points, and you, in turn, invest the money you have saved on goalscoring midfielders and forwards, that will show real efficiency.
In this piece, we'll have a look at the top 5 cost-effective defenders who can deliver on those expectations.
#5 Victor Lindelof- United (£4.9)
With both Phil Jones and Eric Bailly injured, Mourinho has resorted to Lindelof to fill the defensive void. Lindelof has featured in the last 3 games for United and Mourinho is expected to stick with the same back three for the trip to Emirates unless Jones or Bailly recovers from their injuries.
In this season, Lindelof's Fantasy Premier League value has plummeted by a massive £0.6 as he has not been part of the first 11 for United. Now that he has started featuring again as a regular, his price is expected to rise.
Although United faces stern tests up next against Arsenal and City, we can count on their defence to produce the magic. After all, they are the only side to have 9 clean sheets in the Premier League.
So for all the people who believe in Mourinho's men's defensive stability, Victor Lindelof is the player for you.
