Ozil, Fellaini, Lukaku - Fantasy Boom


Just when you thought you could shut your brain down from Fantasy Premier League for a week or two - BOOM - the transfer deadline throws out some mouthwatering moves for you to mull over.

Ozil to Arsenal

He's an amazing player. Truly, though not necessarily a goal-scorer. He's averaged just less than 1 goal in 3 games with Real Madrid, his most in one season came last year with 9 goals in 32 appearances. This though was in a team that scored 100+ goals in La Liga. Assists are his greatest asset, 13 last season, and the real good news is probably for Walcott and Giroud. Ozil's unselfish game style will see him occupy dangerous space, bamboozling defences and allowing others to prosper.

Fellaini to United

We don't think Moyes has signed this guy to be the new Roy Keane. He's Fellaini. Moyes unlocked an attacking talent from the Belgain last season, his aerial ability and unique chest control allowing Everton to get the ball quickly and effectively into dangerous areas of the pitch. The net results was 11 goals and 7 assists but what probably went unnoticed was a host of missed chances created for others. If deployed up in support of Van Persie this bodes well for both.

Lukaku to Everton

Oh Romelu, are you back to frustrate us, and so soon? Lukaku's FPL price has dropped dramatically from £8.0m to £7.4m, ironically just shy of Everton's current front man Jelavic. The big question is can Lukaku nail down the regular starting role he never had at West Brom which kept fantasy interest cool until late in the season. We think he can. At Wigan, Martinez had no problem giving starts to loan players. We are going to have to wait and see though. He's ineligible for GW4 clash with Chelsea.
