Nailed On #3 - James Chester

The third player we won’t do without in our GW1 Fantasy Premier League team is not quite as glamorous as the first two but is just as important to the team.

As we finalise the insideFPL team and try out different combinations of players there are always a few players that make the draft no matter who else we pick. The first two of these we’ve discussed this week in Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson

Our next ‘Nailed On’ pick is James Chester of Hull. A £4.5M defender. Any decent fantasy football team always needs value for money players that can push the budget up for the big hitters and we rate Chester as one of the best of the bunch. Here are our reasons:

  • He’s £4.5M (the main reason)
  • He’s a regular in Hull’s defence. Admittedly Alex Bruce £4M is cheaper but won’t be guaranteed starts when Hull play a 4-4-2 instead of 5-3-2.
  • Hull are one of the best defensive teams outside the top tier.

That’s it, It’s quite simple, really. The more tricky choices lie ahead.

Nailed On #2 - Sigurdsson

The next player to earn himself 'Nailed On' status in the insideFPL GW1 team is Swansea's £6M midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson - what's not to love about the Icelandic star?
