Top 5 / Top 10

While the marquee players are scoring the most points and should find a place in your team, it really is your budget options that sets you apart from the crowd. With the second gameweek of the second quarter around the corner, now is the time to get your Fantasy Premier League back on track, with these 5 cheap must-have picks for Gameweek 11:

#5. Robbie Brady (Midfielder- Burnley)

Price: 5.5

Upcoming Fixtures: Southampton, Swansea City, Arsenal.

With Burnley being in the form of their life, sitting pretty in seventh place after having racked up points against the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool, it is about time one of the more accurate left-foots of the Premier League finds a place in your FPL team.

While Robbie Brady has only been able to provide two assists thus far, there is no doubt that his left foot strikes are one of the most dangerous threats that the Burnley offence has to offer.

A reason for his lack of contribution thus far can be the difficult fixtures that Burnley have had to deal with since the start of the season, having faced four members of the "Big-Six", but despite these tough fixtures, Sean Dyche's men have made an excellent start to the season.

With the likes of Swansea and Southampton coming up, you can only expect their form to go up, and if it does, so will the points for Brady. In fact, seven of Burnley's next ten fixtures are against opposition with an FDR rating of 3 or lower, so Brady can also be seen as a good long-term option for your bench.

Despite having provided just two assists so far, Brady has made 19 key passes in his team's attack, more than any other Burnley player. Brady has also completed 185 passes this season out of which a whopping 89% were attacking in nature, so it cannot be denied that Brady has been an immense presence in Burnley's attack.
