Fantasy Premier League 2018-19: Key Players and Insights ahead of Gameweek 9
#3 Brighton & Hove Albion
Best Pick: Brighton kept 10 clean sheets last year. Owing to tough fixtures at the beginning, they kept their 1st clean sheet in Gameweek 8. With fixtures becoming easier for them, the law of averages suggests that some clean sheets might be on their way. Add the set-piece threat to that, and the defensive duo of Shane Duffy (£4.5m) and Lewis Dunk (£4.4m) become attractive options at their price point.
Good to Have: Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m) has produced some great underlying statistics in the initial gameweeks, and has attacking returns as well. He could be a budget midfield option if you do not have the cash to pick Ryan Fraser.
Potential Trap: Glen Murray (£6.6m) has already scored 5 goals this season, but his conversion rate for opportunities is very high, which might not be sustainable. It looks fine to invest in him for few easy fixtures, but better to stay away in the long run.
Best Pick: No one.
Good to Have: Gudmundsson (£6.0m) is the most creative player for Burnley. His assist potential makes him an attractive option.
Potential Trap: Burnley haven't been defensively sound this season, and investment in their budget goalkeeper Joe Hart (£4.6m) should be done with caution.
