Gameweek 10 in the Premier League is upon us and with it comes fantasy football. Here are the top 5 transfers to target this week.
The Premier League returns for gameweek 10 this weekend with a whole host of fantasy football stars struggling and a whole host excelling. The Arsenal and Liverpool assets are firing high – two of them feature of this list – while Manchester City toil as they adapt to Pep Guardiola’s unusual tactics.
All that I know is that fantasy football has been as exciting as ever this season. Here are five transfers to consider for gameweek 10.
5. Tom Heaton
Having a consistent scoring keeper is a wonderful asset to any fantasy football team. There perhaps isn’t another player that is performing so consistently as Burnley’s Tom Heaton. While he is not the flashy name of a David De Gea or Petr Cech and does not play for a notoriously defensively solid team like West Brom under Tony Pulis or Stoke City under Mark Hughes, though they have suffered their defensive struggles this year, he is racking up points at a considerable rate and for an excellent price.
In fact, priced at only £4.6, Heaton is certainly in the lower echelons of price bracket – £0.9 less than Cech for example. He does not, though, sacrifice points for price. Heaton is the top scoring keeper with 39 points.
What is really helping Heaton is his consistency. He has only blanked (that means to only record appearance points and nothing extra) once, even though Burnley have only kept two clean sheets. In fact, in his last two games against Everton and Southampton, Heaton has racked 4 and 5 points, even though he has conceded 1 and 3 goals respectively.
Heaton has made more saves than any other keeper in the Premier League, 46, to be exact, and is now facing a relatively nice run of fixtures. Heaton faces Man Utd (A), Crystal Palace (H), West Brom (A), Man City (H), Stoke (A), Bournemouth (H). While the two Manchester games are off putting the other games are lovely, and Heaton has proven to score points regardless the opponent. That is a major plus.
