English Premier League transfer window is wide open and Fantasy Premier League could change drastically.
With one player move, a fantasy manager could see his team rise up the table. In contrast, a manager could see his fantasy team spiral out of control.
Or a manager could cut ties to a player that performed well in the opening half of the term.
Good English Premier League transfer
One of the first moves that could reap the biggest rewards is Fernando Llorente’s proposed Chelsea English Premier League transfer.
The Spaniard has scored 64 points on an awful Swansea team and, if the move goes through, will back-up Diego Costa. Llorente has the chance to be one of the best FPL forwards in the second half of the season. Even if he plays sparingly.
At only £6.2 million, it may be wise to snap up the forward before an English Premier League transfer ups his price tag.
Llorente has twice scored in double-digits. With better service, we could see Llorente return to the form he once showed at Athletic Bilbao.
Bad English Premier League transfer
West Ham are currently trying to sign Hull’s Robert Snodgrass. The leading FPL points man for Hull could see a drop off if he heads to London.
Currently the best player on his team, Snodgrass has tallied 94 points. In addition, he is a bargain buy at £5.8 million.
The in-form midfielder has been a bit too inconsistent this term overall; and a move to West Ham could further affect consistent point totals.
Crazy English Premier League transfer
Rumours of Jermain Defoe leaving Sunderland is currently making the rounds. Defoe has scored the third most points of all forwards with 113.
Sunderland have completely relied on the forward throughout the season, more so than any other team has depended on their forwards.
Defoe has scored 11 of Sunderland’s 19 goals and has tallied 58% of the team’s scoring. Fantasy Premier League managers have loved having the Englishman in the side this term.
Eight times this season, Defoe has scored seven or more points. However, a move to West Ham could greatly reduce that production.
The Hammers won’t be quite as reliable on the forward, and it could take him away from being such a central figure to the attack.
The good news is Defoe would play in front of Dimitri Payet. The Frenchman could be the playmaker Defoe craves to open up space in front of goal. Perhaps, it wouldn’t be such a crazy English Premier League transfer after all.
If Sunderland lose the forward, the team won’t have much of a chance of avoiding relegation.
The English Premier League transfer window is just a week old. Who else will move, stay or have a transfer hijacked? It could all affect this season’s Fantasy Premier League.
