Fantasy Premier League 2019-20: 10 defenders to boost your FPL points
#9 John Lundstram (Sheffield United) - £4.5m
Despite being a central defender, Lundstram has already scored twice and got an assist whilst featuring in all eight Premier League matches for Sheffield United. The newly-promoted side has gotten off to a much better start than anticipated with Lundstram being one of their integral players.
He has also been in the side when Sheffield secured three cleansheets, which have nicely boosted his points in Fantasy Premier League to a strong total of 39. For a defender doing this well, you would expect him to have a price tag of around £5-6m. Instead, Lundstram only costs £4.5m, making him a must-have for any manager looking to rack up points from all areas.
The 25-year-old is an key part of the Blades’ set-up, with a similar to that of Lewis Dunk’s at Brighton. This renders him invaluable to his manager, meaning that you won’t have to worry about whether he’ll be given playtime or not. Bigger clubs often rotate the back-line - thankfully mid-table sides like Sheffield and Brighton do not as regularly.
