These are the best bargain players on Dream Team this season

With the international break taking centre-stage this week, we think it’s the perfect time re-evaluate your Dream Team line-up.

So today we’re checking out the best fantasy football bargains on offer.

Get your small change at the ready…

Play the easiest fantasy football game around

Newcastle haven’t exactly been a hotbed of fantasy football talent this season, with Salomon Rondon the pick of their players on Dream Team with a total of 97 points.

But perhaps Dubravka deserves a special mention, as he’s been one of the most consistent goalkeepers to pick for your team.

With 58 points, he’s only slightly behind Man United’s David De Gea, while he’s bettering the likes of Bernd Leon and Kasper Schmeichel.

Considering his bargain price, he might be one to consider for the remainder of the campaign.

Jeffrey Schlupp (£2.8m)

When it comes to fantasy football, we all know about the importance of attacking defenders.

And Schlupp happens to be one of the best out there right now, with 107 points on the game this season which is more than any other Crystal Palace player.

The Ghana international is perhaps one of the biggest Dream Team hacks of the year, as his real-life position as an attacking winger is in stark contrast to his role as a ‘defender’ on our game.

That means by picking Schlupp in your back-line, you’re essentially sneaking an extra midfielder into your team.

Ryan Fraser (£3.4m)

We love Fraser just as much as you do, Eddie!

Fraser has been one of the breakout stars of the fantasy football season, notching up 131 points so far to make him the best Dream Team player at Bournemouth.

That’s pretty impressive, when you consider he shares ranks with fantasy football favourite Joshua King and England striker Callum Wilson.

Having formed a deadly attacking partnership with Wilson, the Scotland international currently has six goals and a brilliant 10 assists to his name in the Premier League.

As a result, his price at the start of the season of £2.5m has rise to £3.4m – but he’s still a bargain in our eyes.

James Maddison (£2.7m)

Who needs Riyad Mahrez, eh?

This lad should feel pretty hard done by after failing to make it into Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad.

But he’s still the apple of our eye, with a lovely tally of 92 points on Dream Team this season.

Fun fact: Madds is the most creative player in Europe’s top five leagues this season, having created more goal-scoring chances than any other player. That’s right, even more than Messi.

Bernardo Silva (£3.8m)

Silva’s been golden for Man City

Now we’re talking.

Many of us feel Silva deserves a crack at winning the Premier League’s Player of the Year award this season, having been the heartbeat of Man City’s title push.

He’s certainly proven to be a consistent points-scorer – currently outscoring a host of more-expensive midfielders on the game, such as Riyad Mahrez (£4.8m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£4.5m) and Dele Alli (£4.5m).

Raul Jimenez (£4.0m)

Mexican wavey

Wolves have been a epicentre of fantasy football heroes this term, with the likes of Matt Doherty and Ruben Neves becoming instant favourites.

But the best of the lot has been Jimenez, whose points total of 168 makes him the FIFTH best striker on Dream Team at the moment.

If you picked the Mexican at the very start of the season, we would’ve cost you a mere £1.5m. Obviously his brilliant form ever since has seen his value rise, but he’s still a tasty little bargain.

Olivier Giroud (£3.0m)

Hat-trick hero

Here’s a bit of a left-field option, perhaps?

France’s World Cup striker has often struggled to be Chelsea’s main man this season, with

Gonzalo Higuain currently ahead of him in the pecking order.
But with a regular place in their Europa League line-up and the odd goal here and there – including a hat-trick in their win over Dynamo Kiev recently – means he’s got more points on Dream Team than the likes of Glenn Murray, Anthony Martial and Jamie Vardy.
