FPL 2017/18: Top 5 budget defenders for gameweek 8
We look at the best budget FPL defenders for the upcoming gameweek and beyond.
This season, most of the Fantasy Premier League managers have chosen to go with 3 big strikers up front and that means they'll have to save money in the defence and midfield departments.
With the big-money players scoring goals regularly, here's our pick for top 5 budget defenders for game week 8:
#5 Jamaal Lascelles (Newcastle United- £4.7)
He's one of the more nailed on defensive options in a Newcastle team that are flying high after an impressive performance against Liverpool.
He has looked a threat from corners in all the games so far and with some winnable fixtures coming up, he may pop up with a goal while keeping a few clean sheets.
He may no longer be a differential option with 11.1% players opting to have him in the side but he'll still give you a good return given his price.
