This season our weekly fantasy Premier League ranks are a one-man affair, with Benji Wade taking over the mantle. You can find him on Twitter: .

Hello Toggers! I’m Benji. Like the dog from the movie nobody but Fantasy Gaffer is old enough to remember. Let’s get started.

A few notes, caveats, and excuses for when my crystal ball lets us all down:

  • They’ve had less than a week with their new clubs, therefore the fantasy value of transferee debutantes has been steeply discounted or in some cases, a player has been omitted entirely until there’s far better evidence of role. E.g. Grzegorz Krychowiak, Serge Aurier, Davide Zappacosta
  • The pecking order and City and United impact two forward pairings dramatically: Martial/Rashford and Aguero/Jesus. Be sure to check the starting 11, then do the math on where they are in the rankings.
  • With players such as Hazard and Lanzini returning from injury, proceed with caution. In Hazard’s case, we may see Willian and Pedro sharing right-wing duties again. Willian has played notably well enough to earn the burn, but Conte seems to have a crush on Pedro.
  • Week 4 could be sneaky good for Swansea. New boys Bony & Sanches could make their debut, while Mawson, Naughton, and Olsson will look to add to Rafa Benitez’s post-transfer deadline Mourning Period.

    Where’s Serge Aurier? He will as easily slot in as Renato Sanches I think especially with Trippier’s fitness.

  • Agreed, right back clearly belongs to Aurier but I don’t trust that happens this weekend. Aurier has not featured in any of PSG’s first four fixtures and he is coming off international duty. Combine that with the Spurs having UCL and another season of Top Five aspirations and I think Poch will likely include him in substitutes at Goodison on Saturday. If he starts, he’s in the 15-20 range for me.

    I won’t be surprised, however, if Davinson Sanchez gets his first start of the campaign.
