Why is nobody picking the fantasy football bargain of the season?

Fantasy football is nothing without those diamonds in the rough.

The bargain players that prove the difference at the end of the season.


IS YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM RUINED? THEN DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER IS JUST THE CURE!


So that’s why we’re taking our hats off to our bargain of Game Week 8 and possibly the budget buy of the season – Swansea’s Tammy Abraham (£3.2m).

Abraham has been Swansea’s saving grace so far this season

Abraham has almost single-handedly kept the Swans’ heads just above the relegation mire so far this season.

Indeed, Paul Clement’s side have managed just five goals all campaign in the Premier League – and the former Chelsea striker has four of them.

Two of those came against Huddersfield last weekend which earned Abraham that vital Dream Team Star Man award and 18 points in total for the Game Week.

Not bad.

He has 47 points so far this season, more than Jan Vertonghen (46), Wayne Rooney (39) and Dele Alli (34).

How has Abraham got on this season on Dream Team?

  • Four goals for Swansea this season
  • 47 points on Dream Team – more than Rooney and Alli
  • Picked by only 1.3% of managers
  • GET ABRAHAM IN YOUR TEAM NOW

So why is he so criminally underpicked?

Abraham has been selected by just 1.3% of Dream Team managers this season – making him less popular than Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain despite scoring more than that duo combined.

But why else does he deserve your attention?

As well as facing manager-less Leicester on Saturday afternoon, they then take on Brighton, Burnley and Bournemouth in three of their next four Premier League games.

The Swans are also in action against Manchester United in the League Cup – a competition Abraham has already scored in this season too.

Can he continue his scoring exploits?

Can he continue his scoring exploits?

At £3.2m he’s considerably cheaper than Giroud, Theo Walcott and Josh King and has outscored the lot of them.

So what are you waiting for?

Time to put your trust in Tammy.


Christian Eriksen or Philippe Coutinho? Why not both in this weekend’s big game?

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 only picking one star playmaker when Tottenham and Liverpool lock horns in weekend’s tastiest encounter on Sunday afternoon.
