Budget defenders are vital if you are succeed in FPL ,a £4.5m gem who starts every week is worth it’s weight in gold as it will allow you to free up funds to buy the Mo Salah’s and Harry Kane’s of this world.
Here are the top five budget defenders to consider for your team.
1.Tariq Lamptey £4.5m
From Gameweek 20 onwards last season Brighton had the second best expected goals conceded figure in the league so their defenders are set to be of great interest to fantasy players.At £4.5m Lamptey looks like a good choice. He missed most of last season through injury so expect him to be flying up and down the line for the Seagulls this year.
2.Wesley Fofana £4.5m
The Frenchman is kindly priced having started 27 games under Brendan Rodgers in his debut season. Leicester City’s fine season last year was based on their solid defence,so expect Fofana to keep plenty of clean sheets for the Foxes.
3.Ben Davies £4.5m
Vastly experienced in the Premier League and under new Manager Nuno Espirito Santo who favours a system with wing-backs,the Welshman could thrive going forward and earn you attacking returns.
4. Luke Ayling £4.5m
Ayling enjoyed a fine debut season for Leeds in the top flight,Marcelo Biesla steered them to a 9th place finish last season and a feature of their play was the all out attack nature in every game. Flying forward and providing the odd clean sheet,if you need to free up funds Luke Ayling is your man.
5.Conor Coady £4.5m
Wolves had a poor campaign last season by their high standards,under new boss Bruno Lage they will be keen to improve. Conor Coady is an ever present in the wanderers defence,never injured rarely misses a game he is a safe bet for your team.
