5 Dream Team fraudsters that you should seriously consider taking out of your lineup

We all know that the finest players on Dream Team usually cost the most.

That’s why sounding out the best bargains is always vital to success on the game; like Tammy Abraham, for example, who’s bossing it this year despite costing just £2.8m.

But what about the ones that cost an arm and a leg, but have failed to deliver the goods?

We’ve picked out some of the biggest frauds on Dream Team this season that you should seriously consider cashing in on.

1 Virgil van Dijk (£5m) 43 points

He’s widely considered the best central-defender in the world right now, and we certainly don’t dispute that.

But Virgil hasn’t quite been the best of the best when it comes to fantasy football this season, with a host of lesser names and cheaper alternatives out-scoring his points total so far.

That includes Watford’s Daryl Janmaat, who has 46 points this term despite being exactly half the price of his Liverpool-based compatriot.

2 Benjamin Mendy (£4.1m) 37 points

Mendy remains one of the most-expensive defenders on Dream Team, despite the fact that he’s spent much of the last three years in and out of Man City’s treatment room.

But the frustrating full-back has been a regular in the side since September — although his points total doesn’t quite match what you’d expect, considering his price.

3 Luka Milivojevic (£3.1m) 23 points

Palace’s penalty pro hasn’t exactly under-performed this season, but there’s certainly a host of cheaper midfielders in better form than him at the moment.

Milivojevic has two goals so far — both from the spot, of course — but it’s no where close to the 12 he picked up last term, and we think there’s better alternatives out there; including Wolves’ Adama Traore, who has a stunning 68 points to his name.

4 Christian Eriksen (£3.5m) 18 points

Eriksen has had a woeful campaign by his standards, with the uncertainty over his long-term future at Spurs almost certainly to blame.

The Danish midfielder has not been a regular starter for the struggling North Londoners and probably won’t be at the forefront of Jose Mourinho’s plans.

But considering he’s regularly been one of Dream Team’s most reliable source of points in recent years, his current haul is no where near what we’d expect — considering how much he’d set you back.

5 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£5.7m) 64 points

On the surface, 64 points is certainly a fine points total at this stage of the season.

But considering this is the mighty Aubameyang we’re talking about here — quite possibly one of the best strikers in the Premier League — he should have a whole lot more than that.

The Arsenal hitman is in fact our 11th best forward on the game right now, with the considerably cheaper Danny Ings and Raul Jimenez ahead of him in our points table.
