Who Are Your Hidden Gems in Fantasy Premier League?

The Boys Are Back In Town 2009 2010 Who Are Your Hidden Gems in Fantasy Premier League?

If you’re like me, you have rotten luck with Fantasy Premier League, the official fantasy football game of the Premier League. Just hours before the season started, I had Didier Drogba and Jermain Defoe as my two starting strikers. But after a change of heart, I decided to replace them with Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Tevez. Silly me. Drogba and Defoe go on to score a hatful of goals while I’m still waiting for Bendtner and Tevez to score in the Premier League this season.

Thankfully the readers of EPL Talk know a fair bit more about picking winning fantasy football players than I do. Right now, EPL Talk is ranked the number one best private league in the world in the Fantasy Premier League standings. If I have a few more weeks of poor results in fantasy football, then don’t be surprised if I bring everyone’s average score down!

In order to help everyone out, last week I asked the EPL Talk followers on Twitter for their suggestions of who they thought were hidden gems in the Fantasy Premier League. Here are a few recommendations:

Last season, Song scored 69 points. So far this season, he’s only got two but maybe NickyButt (not the real Nicky Butt) knows something we don’t know?

Luis Jimenez already has 8 points this season and is a steal at £5 million. He’s played in both league games for the Hammers, and his future looks bright under Zola’s command.

Wigan have had a rocky start to the season despite having a good first half against Manchester United. So far N’Zogbia has scored 10 points for the Latics and his value still remains at £5.5 million.

One more tip: Be sure to keep an eye on the Fantasy Football Scout website which has the latest team news, predicted line-ups, injury updates and much more.
