There is just over 24 hours until the Premier League weekend starts and Fantasy Premier League Managers are preparing their teams. The first game of the Premier League schedule this week is on Friday night with Brentford in action on Sunday, facing Leicester City. The FPL deadline is approaching and experts have suggested Bryan Mbeumo may be a man to pick.
The FPL season, like the Premier League season, is eight weeks old. Players that are out-performing expectations have been identified by regular players and the way teams are setting up is having an effect. The Premier League's FPL experts have identified Bryan as a man who could make a difference this week.
In a piece here, The Scout - who writes about Fantasy Premier League for the Premier League - has suggested Bryan is a man to look at. The piece suggests Bryan could be a useful addition as he is owned by few FPL bosses. It points out that Bryan's recent returns make him a man to look at.
"Bryan is owned by only 3.3 per cent of managers for Brentford’s home contest with Leicester City," wrote The Scout. After starting the season with four straight blanks, Mbeumo’s output has improved. Both his goals this term have come in the last four Gameweeks, the 22-year-old scoring and earning eight points against both Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.
"Listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, Mbeumo has been playing as a forward alongside Ivan Toney (£6.4m) this season. His seven shots inside the box ranked fourth in midfield over the last four Gameweeks. And only five players bettered his three big chances overall. At a cost of only £5.5m, Mbeumo looks a standout source of value in Fantasy for that upcoming period."
Bryan is clearly on the radar as he was named as an option in a different piece on the Premier League website. The article here lists midfielders with low prices that could provide big points for FPL bosses. Bryan was one of those selected.
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.
