Brace yourselves, Fantasy Premier League fans, as some new prices for the 2023/24 campaign have arrived during a live reveal.
The ever-popular fantasy football game has unveiled some key prices of popular players on the format, selecting one from each club. And, unfortunately, it looks like those in charge have made it even more difficult to put the big point-scorers together in the same team.
But that is part of the fun, isn’t it? Finding the differentials, picking up players at a good value, beating your friends… this is what FPL managers live and breathe.
However, some of these new Fantasy Premier League prices for 2023/24 may cause some headaches for players.
2023/24 Fantasy Premier League: Haaland and Salah lead the way
Starting at the top now, and many FPL users will be unsurprised at the two most expensive assets heading into next season.
Erling Haaland, after his incredible, record-breaking 2022/23 campaign, is the priciest FPL star. The Norwegian comes in at an eye-watering £14.0m. This is equal to the highest-ever prices in FPL history, with Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Robin van Persie all having been £14.0m previously.
Just behind him comes Mo Salah. The Egyptian is a bit of a magnet for FPL points, consistently finishing among the top scorers. He comes in at £12.5m, which is a pricy total for the Liverpool winger.
Is it worth finding points from the Reds in more budget-friendly alternatives? We will have to see what the rest of the prices hold.
Midfield assets could make for some fascinating squad selections
Also in the first 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League price reveals were a collection of mid-price midfielders. Choosing between these various stars could be difficult, with the wrong pick potentially costing you early in the season.
Martin Odegaard, following his 212-point 2022/23, comes in at £8.5m. This matches Bruno Fernandes, who decreases from double digits to £8.5m as well.
Meanwhile, breakout FPL star Kaoru Mitoma is only £6.5m at Brighton, so could be a value pick. Bryan Mbuemo and Eberechi Eze are also of the same value.
Costing slightly less, at £6.0m, is Lucas Paqueta. The West Ham star might not be a quality selection due to squad rotation; West Ham play in the Europa League in 2023/24. Nottingham Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White is £6.0m, too.
Finally, Heung-Min Son is a £9.0m player this season. If he can recover his golden boot-winning form of 2021/22, the Korean star might just be worth a gamble.
New Chelsea forward Christopher Nkunku prepares to make his Premier League debut in 2023/24. His price for FPL is definitely a tempting one for managers as well. Listed as a striker, the Frenchman will set you back £7.5m.
Fellow summer arrival, Bournemouth’s Justin Kluivert, might be a potential bench asset at £5.0m.
Elsewhere, two promoted forwards will be nice and cheap for your teams. Luton Town’s Carlton Morris and Sheffield United striker Iliman Ndiaye both cost just £5.5m.
With more prices presumably on the way, this summer promises to be a gruelling one for FPL managers.
Just remember, you have unlimited transfers on Fantasy Premier League up until the start of the 2023/24 season. So, channel your inner Claudio Ranieri and tinker away with your squad.
