2017-18 Fantasy Premier League Rankings

on

Welcome to the 2017-18 Fantasy Premier League Rankings. Each week I will be updating the rankings based on how I expect each player to perform the rest of the season. I will also be giving notes to the changes that occurred in the rankings from the previous week.

Speaking of the previous week, week five is in the books, and we learned quite a few crucial things. In a very low scoring week, the Manchester clubs extended their gap at the top of the league. Manchester City ended Watford’s unbeaten run in a 6-0 romping, with Aguero earning a hatrick. Manchester United continued their trend of late goals, disposing of Everton 4-0 with three goals in the final ten minutes. Arsenal did well to hold Chelsea to a 0-0 draw with Lacazette missing some crucial chances. On the other end of the table, Bournemouth registered their first win while Roy Hodgson could not do the same for the Eagles.

Welbeck picked up a groin injury in the goalless London derby and should be out until October 14 or later. Luiz is suspended until October 14 as well. Coutinho completed his first 90 minutes all season, Hazard seems to lack match fitness after serving as a mere sub against Arsenal, and Kompany returned to full health.

Based on the results, a few players have massively changed ranks. Valencia scored possibly the goal of the season and is now the number one ranked defender, most Manchester United and City defenders are on the rise, while Crystal Palace and Bournemouth defenders dropped immensely.

In the midfield, Hazard and Sanchez surprisingly only appeared off the bench and therefore dropped ranks. De Bruyne is up to number one and many City midfielders climbed following an impressive 6-0 win over Watford. Mkhitaryan registered a goal against Everton and is ranked number three at this point.

Aguero’s hat-trick earned him the number two spot, and Jesus surpassed Lacazette into fifth place. Outside of Manchester, only two strikers scored or assisted so the rankings are very familiar. In addition, we slightly adjusted the goalie rankings.

Be sure you return each week to check out the updates to the 2017-18 Fantasy Premier League Rankings. Also, don’t miss the rest of the Premier League content.
