This week we look at several players with Teams Selected By (TSB) of 0.1% or less and see if we can find any value in them either for your FPL Classic or Draft teams.
- Sofiane Boufal (SOU | MID | 5.5)
Boufal had started the last two of the Saints games and his side had picked up 4 points. He had played well and is actually playing in a forward role, in the left wing. He is known for his dribbling and running at defenders so as long as he gets some games under his belt, he will start to rake up goals and assists. More importantly, with Nathan Redmond out and Ralph Hassenhuttl preferring one center-forward and two wider wingers, Boufal should be in front in the pecking order.
- Moussa Djenepo (SOU | MID | 5.4)
The Malian midfielder arrived at Saints over the summer and took some time to settle before starting at left-wing back on Game Week 5. His pace and ability to go forward means he offers a bit more than Kevin Danso, who is a more traditional left-back. Djenepo looks versatile and set to keep his spot in the first XI so at this price point he looks to be a bargain buy.
- Christian Atsu (NEW | MID | 5.4)
Newcastle are not going to score a lot of goals this season and when they do, they are most likely going to come from the endeavours of Joelinton. However, Atsu is a good pick at this price point. The Magpies play a lot of counterattacking football and Atsu is the 2-3 players in the team with electric pace. He has already started their last three games and have 2 assists to his name. A good player to have especially if Newcastle plays away from home – that is where he is expected to lead counterattack charges.
- Marco Stiepermann (NOR | MID | 5.4)
For Norwich City, all the attention is currently on Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell, both of whom had started their seasons in brilliant form. In truth, the Canaries cannot possibly rely on two players for the entire season and Stiepermann can make a difference in time to come. He plays in a very advanced position and whilst he does not appear to possess the pace, he look like a good player on the ball. We have identified the German previously – though he had not done anything of note since, we are sticking with our pick for him to deliver the goods very soon.
- Mamadou Sakho (CRY | DEF | 5.0)
Likewise, we have identified Sakho as a good buy earlier on and he has since returned to full fitness. He started in GW05 – even though that ended in heavy defeat for Palace, we expect Sakho to continue his run in the first XI given the injury list at the club. Palace plays two home games in a row in Gw06 and Gw07 so he packs good value at his price point. We fancy Palace to have between 8-10 clean sheets over a season so Sakho is worth a look.
