Fantasy Tips 11/16/07 – Bargains, Bargains, Bargains, Part 2!

While we’re in the middle of another international break, it’s a good time to look your roster over to see if there are any moves to be made. As a follow-up to last week’s post, I’d like to focus on another round of bargain players- this time in midfield and up top…

This season has provided us with a wealth of midfield surprises, including City’s Elano (£8.9m) and Petrov (£7.3m). Either of these players would be a fantastic addition to any team, and now might be a good time to pounce- they’re facing a pretty easy schedule over the next 4 weeks.

Fulham’s Simon Davies (£5.6m) and Birmingham City’s Olivier Kapo (£5.4m) are two very inexpensive options. Of the two, I’d suggest Davies- he costs a bit more, but Fulham is facing a much easier schedule for the next few gameweeks.

There is no shortage of lower-priced strikers this year, as injuries and club turmoil have kept the usual suspects away from the net. Currently, Benjani (£6.7m) sits at second on the scorer’s chart, and fourth-place Emmanuel Adebayor (£8.7m) will look to continue his strong form.

However, the real catch this gameweek is Blackburn’s Roque Santa Cruz (£7.4m), who is performing at a very high level and faces light opposition over the next few weeks. Better still, Blackburn has two games in gameweek 14- giving you the chance to score double points!

Tune in next week, where we’ll take a look at some upcoming double fixtures, and how you can capitalize on the schedule!

Editor’s Note: While Arsenal sit atop the Premier League during the international break, we’re proud to reveal that the private EPL Talk Fantasy League sits in 19th position out of more than 103,000 leagues around the world. Keep up the good work and be sure to spend wisely during the break so we can try to hit the top ten between now and the end of the year.
