Premier League defenders to sign at fantasy game EPL

Fantasy football is not all about lethal strikers and tricky wingers, with some of the biggest points hauls in recent seasons registered by defenders, below a reminder on how some of the top EPL defenders performed last season.

Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)




Alonso bagged  on average seven goals and added three assists from the left-back position, and he is a part of an excellent defence that doesn’t concede many goals. The Spaniard exploded in his first season at Stamford Bridge and became one of the top scoring Fantasy Premier League defenders, thanks to Chelsea managers tactics with wing-backs. Alonso received on average two yellow cards in season, and that is an upside as he will not cost you precious points due to lack of discipline. 

Nicolas Otamendi (Manchester City)

Otamendi has been a rock at the heart of the Man City defence last season. He’s one of the reasons why City were sitting comfortably at the top of the Premier League table. He’s been a real threat for City in attack last season, getting himself on the score sheet four times in 34 appearances on top of 10 clean sheets.

Hector Bellerin (Arsenal)

Bellerin is one of the best fantasy premier league defenders because he loves to attack. He’s registered on average 2 goals as well as 2 assists in the Premier League seasons. He’s definitely a defender you should consider every week when drafting your Sportito XI.

Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

The English right wing back already has on average 5 assists and 10 clean sheets to his name last season in league appearances for Manchester City. He’s a player, like Bellerin, who loves to attack. Man City are a much better side defensively last season than they have been in previous seasons so there is always the possibility of clean sheet points as well. 

Harry Maguire (Manchester United)

Maguire is a man-mountain. Finally he is playing in a bigger club. He’s an excellent EPL defender who is a huge threat when he goes forward for set pieces. Manchester’s new manager Solskjaer is a open-minded coach which makes Maguire an even more attractive FPL option. He’s chipped in with average 2 goals & 4 assists in the last seasons.

Ben Davies (Tottenham Hotspur) 

Davies has been superb at left-wing back for Spurs last season, He does share his position with Danny Rose which means he doesn’t play week in, week out, but when you see his name on the Spurs team sheet, he’s a superb pick for your fantasy football team.

Selecting these best Premier League defenders when drafting your fantasy football team on Sportito will guarantee you points to beat your opponents.
