Fantasy Premier League Predictions 2022/23 | Guardians

0

Fantasy Premier League returns in 2022/23 and the game looks tougher than ever for the new season with high prices to pay for the best players around.

Goalkeepers can provide a nice flow of clean sheets if you select wisely, and two high-cost stars have dominated teams in recent campaigns.

Ederson and Alisson, from Manchester City and Liverpool, have firmly positioned themselves as the league’s best stoppers and have reaped the rewards of their own form and the form of the men ahead of them.

They’re back for 2022/23, but they’re not the only keepers you should be watching ahead of the new campaign.

Budget options can often pay big dividends for little cost if you choose wisely early in the campaign. Goalkeepers from lower league teams are more likely to save points and man of the match bonuses due to the number of shots they will face compared to elite scorers.

RadioTimes.com brings you our Fantasy Premier League tips, including which goalkeepers you should sign for your FPL team in 2022/23.

Best FPL goalkeepers 22/23

FPL budget keeper

Sam Johnstone (Crystal Palace) £4.5million

Johnstone has been superb for West Brom despite their relegation to the Championship in 2020/21. He collected 140 points including 19 bonus points. That would put him fifth in the list of goalie last season totals.

He is likely to earn the starting spot over Vicente Guaita in a Crystal Palace side that have kept more clean sheets than any side outside of last season’s top five.

Mid Priced FPL Goalkeeper

Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester) £5.0m

It’s fair to say that 2021/22 wasn’t one to scream for Leicester. It was a muted affair by all accounts, and their defensive stability wasn’t exactly praised.

However, Schmeichel picked up 12 bonus points and made two penalty saves, two factors that can differentiate goalkeepers from their FPL rivals. If Leicester can bounce back with an improved season, they could aim for 150 points or more.

FPL premium goalkeeper

Ederson (Man City) £5.5million

Everyone plays FPL in a different way, but for patient players who play long, look no further than Ederson.

He finished below Alisson in the points rankings based on bonus points, but City look stronger than ever here, while Liverpool haven’t strengthened their defensive ranks. We’re not suggesting Liverpool will dip in 22/23, just that City have the advantage and Ederson will benefit. Set and forget.
