2017-18 Fantasy Premier League Week 10 Transfers: The Rise of Midfield


Transfers are a crucial yet confusing section of Fantasy Premier League. Even die-hard fans will scratch their heads at the bombardment of unfamiliar names on their screen. That’s where we come in: here at Fantasy Six Pack, we take the guesswork out of Fantasy Premier League with rankings updated weekly and frequent other articles such as this one.

In this article, we cover the less drafted, lesser-known players to give you the extra edge over your league rather than players who aren’t even available such as Kane or Lukaku. It’s time to prove you’re not just a plastic fan to your friends. Those bragging rights are as good as yours if you stick to this list for week 10.

2017-18 Fantasy Premier League Week 10 Transfers

Pascal Groß, Brighton, Midfielder

Pascal Groß may not play for a top six side, but he sure performs like he does. He is in the form of his life with an impressive two goals and four assists in his last six Premier League games.

Although listed and scored as a midfielder on FPL, he actually starts most games as a forward meaning he earns five points a goal rather than four and receives an extra point per clean sheet. His electric form combined with his advanced position in game, he looks a fantastic pick-up for your team.

Kieran Trippier, Defender, Tottenham Hotpur

Replacing Kyle Walker is no easy task, but Trippier has done the job seamlessly. Trippier is not just a defender, he can create as well. He has an impressive three assists, two clean sheets, and twenty-eight points in his last three weeks, so enough said.

Richarlison, Midfielder, Watford

Largely thanks to his recent position change from midfield to left-wing, Richarlison is on fire with two goals and three assists in four matches. Just like Groß, he is still listed and scored as a midfielder giving him extra fantasy value.

Watford surprisingly lies in the top six nine games in, and Richarlison is no small part of that.

Mame Biram Diouf, Forward, Stoke City

Finishing things up is Senegalese Striker Diouf. Speaking of finishing, Diouf has scored in his last three games for Stoke and even created a goal as well.

Although not as prolific as the other players mentioned above, consistent goal-scoring forwards are hard to come by, and Diouf is one of the best options still available.
