Reverse logic – Find the midfielders playing in defence
For years, the finest fantasy football exponents have trawled through the leagues looking for players who occupy a more advanced position than their categorisation suggests.
The logic being that if you can find a listed ‘defender that plays in midfield’, or even a midfielder standing in as a number nine, they are more likely to contribute attacking points to your score.
While that may still be true, Sportito has thrown up a new trend in recent weeks, where the contests are going in the favour of the manager who picked a ‘midfielder that plays in defence’.
For example, in a past cagey Manchester derby produced almost a blanket finish, as there were no goals and just a single yellow card for substitute Gabriel Jesus before Marouane Fellaini’s late moment of madness.
Here are some related articles for you:
Therefore, the game changer was Manchester United’s winger turned full-back Antonio Valencia. Those players who stuck to the default 3-4-3 formation but picked the Ecuadorian in midfield collected an extra two clean sheet points from a four man defence – Sportito rules stipulate that those who played in defence get 4.00 for the clean sheet, as opposed to the 2.00 for midfielders.
Another player to take advantage of this in Eric Dier. Capped 17 times by England, Dier’s versatility has often counted against him on the fantasy football scene.
So, there you have it. A spot of reverse logic to kick off a busy week on Sportito, with contests around all the upcoming Premier League, Europa League and Champions League matches.
If you’re expecting a close match, a ‘midfielder that plays in defence’ might not be a bad thing. Take Valencia, Dier and re-invented penalty taking left back James Milner as prime examples.
These players made our list of the best Fantasy Premier League Midfielders in the new season so far, but there are many others to pick from. In the end, it is your decision when picking the top Midfielders for your Daily Fantasy Football lineup, and we hope this list will help you to beat the other players on Sportito and win the cash prizes.
