The Best Promoted Players For Your Fantasy Football Team

The football season is back upon us and that can mean only one thing... so is fantasy football!

As you try to come up with the best and funniest team names you can think of, as well as think about the players to actually put in your squad, there's one thing many players might overlook.

The promoted players.

Last season's Championship winners Fulham have a plethora of options to pick from, while runners up Bournemouth and play-off victors Nottingham Forest aren't short on options either.

We take a look at the options you should consider for your FPL side.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, Fulham (£6.5m)

Perhaps the most obvious choice of all, Mitrovic is in over 7% of teams already off the back of an unprecedented 2021/22 season.

The Fulham striker broke the record for most goals in a Championship season with 43, and with Premier League experience already under his belt, Mitrovic is a solid choice up top.

The Serbian's last Premier League outing was disappointing with just three goals scored and three assists on top of that, so there is risk with this one at the same time.

Neco Williams, Nottingham Forest (£4.0m)

Williams was brilliant on loan at Fulham last season and now he has left Liverpool on a permanent move will hope to settle into life quickly at Forest.

At £4.0m Williams will likely be on your bench, but he is a player guaranteed minutes and will allow for you to spend big elsewhere.

Brennan Johnson, Nottingham Forest (£6.0m)

The man who helped fire Forest back into the Premier League will hope for a big season.

Not only does Johnson get goals but he is an assist provider too. He will face stiff competition from club record signing Taiwo Awoniyi but will likely start the season up top.

Dominic Solanke, Bournemouth (£6.0m)

The former Liverpool centre forward had a top season for Bournemouth in the Championship, scoring 29 league goals as the Cherries clawed their way back into the Premier League.

Solanke will no doubt lead the line for Bournemouth this season.

Andreas Pereira, Fulham (£4.5m)

Another one of this year's enablers, Pereira has finally got a move away from Manchester United and Fulham could see the rewards reaped for that. His creativity in midfield and ability to find a pass will find him a key player for the west London side.

The Brazilian is also set to be on set pieces, so could rack up the assists this season.

Jordan Zemura, Bournemouth (£4.5m)

The left back had his breakthrough season for Bournemouth, able to maraud forward at pace showing he is effective at both ends with goals and assists. He's likely to surprise some FPL fans this year.
