Fans from up and down the country will have the opportunity to build a virtual management dynasty of their own by selecting their best team from players playing in the top flight.
As any experienced Fantasy Football player will know, the key to success is balancing your strict budget wisely, with players in this version valued from between £6 million – £18 million, and with a transfer kitty of £180 million to fill a starting XI and five subs.
But which stars are the most expensive?
Here are the five costliest players that’ll seriously make a dent in your virtual bank account:
James Tavernier – £18M
With 11 goals and 14 assists in the Premiership last season, the Rangers captain will be a must-have in plenty of Fantasy teams this season.
Moreover, his position of right-back means he could chip in with some important clean-sheet stats too, making his pricey £18M price-tag entirely justified.
Alfredo Morelos – £18M
Gers striker Morelos is also valued at £18 million, after his impressive 30 goals in all competitions last season.
17 of his strikes came in the Premiership and, if he’s still plying his trade in Scotland come September 1, the chances are he’ll bang in even more in the forthcoming season.
James Forrest – £18M
Celtic attacker Forrest completes a three-way £18 million tie as the most expensive Fantasy Football player you can purchase, following his outstanding performances last season.
Forrest notched up an impressive 11 goals and 12 assists, and must surely come under serious consideration for your team – regardless of who you support.
Kieran Tierney – £17.5M
The Celtic left-back struggled with injuries in the second-half of last season but he still did enough to be valued at £17.5 million in this season’s rankings.
Tierney chipped in with just five assists last season, but that was from just 20 Premiership games, and we all know that he’s worth every penny of his valuation when he’s fighting fit and back flying down that left-wing.
Odsonne Edouard – £17.5M
Celtic’s No.1 striker last season chipped in with 14 Premiership goals last season, as well as six assists, fully justifying why he’s made it into the five most expensive players in Ladbrokes’ new game.
Leigh Griffiths will be back on the scene but we’re willing to bet that only serves to motivate Edouard further to bring home the Fantasy points.
