Fantasy football tips: Premier League bargain of the week – Game Week 5

Well that’s another fantasy football Game Week done and dusted after a bumper set of fixtures in the Carabao Cup.

Sergio Aguero was up to his old tricks against Watford, scoring his 10th Manchester City hat-trick and more importantly taking the accolade of top Dream Team points scorer for Game Week 5 with 30.

Michy Batshuayi and Anthony Martial ran him close after making the most of their chances to shine in midweek.

But one player deserves extra recognition after a brilliant personal week in which his side kept back to back clean sheets.

So, without further ado, our bargain of Game Week 5 is… Alfie Mawson.

The Swansea centre-back racked up an impressive 23 points to finish level with Martial in a tie for third in the points standings for the Game Week.

First Mawson was key to helping the Swans brilliantly keep Tottenham at bay at Wembley to earn a battling 0-0 draw.

The defender, who’s being earmarked as on outside bet for England’s World Cup squad, then scored and kept a clean sheet as the Welsh side comfortably saw off Reading in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

That match-winning display earned Mawson that vital Star Man award and a whopping 18 points.

At just £3.2m he’s a lot cheaper than some of the more recognisable defenders out there and with Swansea facing Watford, West Ham and Huddersfield in their next three games his run of points is likely to continue.

Just over 1% of Dream Team players have picked Mawson, but we reckon that figure will rise substantially in the coming Game Weeks.


Romelu Lukaku or Sergio Aguero? Why not both?

That’s the beauty of Dream Team Weekender – there are no budget limitations so you can pick any player available from this weekend’s fixtures.

That means you don’t have to worry about sacrificing different parts of your side to include the two best Dream Team players so far this season.
