The next round of Premier League games starts today and Fantasy Premier League managers are getting prepared. The first game of the weekend is coming up and the deadline for FPL bosses to choose their teams is just hours away. And the FPL experts have identified Brentford as a team to look at.
Every week there are a series of tips for Fantasty Premier League Managers. This week Sergi Canós has been selected as a player that could make a difference for those looking to have a good week in FPL. In a piece here, The Scout - who writes about Fantasy Premier League for the Premier League - has suggested Sergi as one of five players that will offer value this week. Every week five players are chosen by The Scout and Sergi is on that list this week.
"The Spaniard has been Brentford’s most explosive player in Fantasy this season," writes The Scout. "Canós has produced a team-leading two double-figure returns, including a tem-point haul against Newcastle United last weekend. He supplied two assists in the 3-3 draw at St James’ Park, earning two bonus points.
"His haul against Newcastle took Canós to 44 points for the campaign, level with Bees’ star Ivan Toney (£6.7m). Yet whereas Toney is the fourth most-owned forward in Fantasy, found in over 21.2 per cent of squads, just 2.0 per cent have selected Canos. The underlying numbers show Canós has boasted a goal threat recently. His seven shots and five shots in the box in the last two Gameweeks ranked top for both those statistics for Brentford."
FPL is live with the season underway and managers can make changes to their squad ahead every week. For the first time ever, you can put Brentford players in it. You can play in classic leagues, with total points deciding the rankings, or take part in head-to-head leagues, where managers duel each Gameweek, earning three points for a win and one for a draw.
