Most consistent and best fantasy football players?

10. Harry Kane, ATT, £8m

There’s a reason Kane was the second highest on the game last season and I’m not just talking about his 40 goals in all competitions.

The England players was the 10th-most consistent player in the Premier League registering a 7+ WhoScored.com rating on 32 separate ocassions.

More of the same this year Hazza.

9. Christian Eriksen, MID, £6m

Spurs’ midfield orchestrator managed 32 7+ rating in 47 games with a total of 15 goals and 12 assists.

I guess it’s easy when you have Kane burying nearly every pass you play to him.

Makes the top 10 for consistency but ranked 11th in the game overall.

8. Fernandinho, MID, £3m


Here’s a name you might not have expected to see in the top 10.

Fernandinho is the consummate pro and was ready to do a job for Man City whenever Pep Guardiola called him into midfield.

He only scored five goals in his 48 games last season but the rest of his game was outstanding as he recorded a 7+ score 33 times.

7. Raheem Sterling, MID, £6m

For all the criticism Sterling receives on a national level, he is absolutely treasured at Man City.

And looking at his numbers it is no surprise at all.

Sterling never went missing for City, scoring late winners and equalling Fernandinho’s 33 7+ ratings in less games (46).

Also bagged 23 goals and 17 assists last season.

6. Roberto Firmino, ATT, £6m

The first of three Liverpool players in the top six which demonstrates how strong they were across the season.

It is no surprise to see this man in the list.

Mo Salah might have taken all the headlines this season but none of it would have been possible without Firmino’s craftsmanship behind the scenes.

Firmino played 54 games last season and managed to hit the golden seven mark 34 times.

5. Sadio Mane, MID £6m

Mane was the fifth highest scorer in the game with 244 points last season, 20 goals and 10 assists.

But most impressive? He scored a 7+ rating in 34 of his 44 games.

However, only managed to convert five into Star Man points.

4. Eden Hazard, MID, £6m

Chelsea were disappointing under Antonio Conte last season but the club should be thanking Hazard for dragging them to fifth at best.

Fourth highest scorer in the game and contributed to 29 goals overall.

Broke the 7+ barrier on the WhoScored.com barometer 35 times.

3. N’Golo Kante, MID, £3m

Kante is the biggest anomaly on this list.

He was rated at 7+ on 36 different occasions last season but ended up 58th in the total points rankings last season.

But as we’ve told you before, Kante might be a brilliant footballer but he’s rubbish on fantasy football.

2. Mo Salah, ATT, £8m


Goals and bucket loads of high ratings.

Salah really did have it all last season.

52 games, 44 goals, 16 assists, nine Star Man awards and a whopping 38 ratings higher than seven.

1. Kevin De Bruyne, MID, £6.5m

Mr Consistent, of course he is.

De Bruyne played a total of 52 games last season and scored above seven in 42 of them.

Add 12 Star Man awards and you can see how he has become the best midfielder in Europe.

Simply incredible.
