Everyone knows Salah, Debruyne, and Cristiano Ronaldo are the superstars of the Premier League when it comes to fantasy football. That’s why they are in the team of so many FPL managers.

But the actual test of a manager is finding the gems in mid and low prices. Players like Patrick Bamford, who is well capable to click and perform like the superstar assets of the Premier League.

Choosing the right players in their price range will take your team from better than 50% managers to better than 70-75% managers. The rest depends on lining up your best 11, choosing the right captain, and making the best use of wildcard and other chips.

In this blog, we will suggest some of the mid-price midfielders, who can go on and score big throughout the season. The list will be updated throughout the season because many times there are surprises like Lundstram, Dele Alli, and Harry Kane who start their Premier League career on a very high note being low and mid-priced players.

1. Jack Grealish

Available at a price of £7.7, Jack Grealish is potentially going to give you the best season of his career. He is newly signed by Manchester City for a record British transfer fee of £100m and there are high hopes that he will live up to his hype.

Last season he scored 6 and assisted 12 goals. He was a constant threat from the left flank with additional duties of corners, free-kicks, and a 3rd choice penalty taker after El Ghazi and Watkins.

At City, he is not enjoying that many responsibilities because of the amazing squad they have but still, the expectation is that his stats will only improve. Because now he is at a better club, meaning better attack and more chances to score points.

His productivity in terms of goals and assists have improved compared to a season prior all while the number of minutes on the pitch went down from 3233 minutes to 2183 minutes last season. But it was because of injuries.

At Manchester City, he is getting regular minutes, starting 9 times out of the opening 11 games, which in itself is a huge achievement if you are playing under Josep Guardiola.

Although the numbers till now are not good enough, 1 goal and 2 assists in 9 out of 11 games he played but minutes are important. And Guardiola is trusting him a lot with them.

For now, you can at least put him on the watch list. His time will surely come and he is on top of our mid-price fpl midfielders.

2. Phil Foden

You never know what’s going on in the mind of Pep Guardiola. There is too much rotation in his team. A player like Phil Foden, who is one of the top English talents and someone who scored 9 goals and provided 8 assists last season was only given 1607 minutes on the pitch. That’s half a season on the bench.

These minutes and productivity stats will surely go up this season but selecting him will be a constant risk because no one other than Guardiola knows whether Phil is going to start or come from the bench in injury time.

The best thing is that, unlike previous seasons, Phil Foden is now listed as a midfielder instead of a forward, which gives him the potential to score more points, and secondly one of his compatriots for playing 11, a certain Kun Aguero is no more at the club.

That means you can expect that Phil will play at least 2000 minutes in this season, the only problem is how will we know which 2000 minutes, Guardiola will keep rotating his squad like always.

As per the season stats till now, Phil Foden is starting and playing 85+ minutes in every game since game week 6, which is a positive sign and you can consider him to be your mid-price midfielder in the team.

3. Diogo Jota

Last season, Jota made his debut at Liverpool. It was a decent season for him in a team that performed nowhere near to the season prior. He scored 9 goals in his 1106 minutes on the pitch, which is a decent number.

And now when he is settled well in Liverpool, it is expected that the £7.5m mid-priced Diogo Jota will perform even better in the upcoming season.

Liverpool will only improve on the previous season and that’s a sure thing. Last season was a bad injury-hit one and they can only improve on it. And if that happens, Diogo Jota surely is a player to bet on.

Till now his numbers are decent, Liverpool is in super form coming out of the Old Trafford and Jota has the recent performances to create a strong case for himself to be signed by FPL managers.

More and more managers are signing Diogo Jota every game week and it will be better to sign him before the value goes up. His current ownership in FPL is more than 12% at the moment and this number will possibly only go up from here.

4. Youri Tielemans

Youri Tielemans is living up to his hype. He is currently the top-scoring midfielder in the Leicester City squad and is in red-hot form.

A guaranteed to start midfielder, who has played every Premier League minute in the ongoing season for Leicester City.

In fact, his minutes on the pitch are going up every season. Last season, Youri played 3356 minutes and scored 133 points.

He is available at a £6.5m price, which is quite low for a player who is regular, gets injured rarely, and is always playing for a team that is in contention to qualify for Europe.

This is Youri Tielmens’ 4th season in Premier League and the points scoring graph is only going up every season.

Surprisingly, his ownership is under 10% in Fantasy Premier League. But it will surely go up if the current form continues.

5. Mason Mount

He could be the next big thing. At £7.5m, he could prove to be an absolute bargain and he has already started showing signs of it, with a hat-trick against Norwich City in a goals-galore Chelsea performance.

Mason Mount has got all the flavors of a top attacker. Last season he scored 6 and assisted 7 and he is a regular in Chelsea’s team playing 2887 minutes and scoring 147 points in season 2020-21.

Heading into the season 2021-22, Mason Mount is a more experienced player and a European Champion.

Chelsea is a team to watch out for this season because last season when they changed managers, everything good stat started heading North and being a strong link in the playing 11, it will be great to see what Mason Mount brings to the table, now that Chelsea is top of the table and he is one of the manager’s favorites to start every week.

£7.5m is a very low price tag for a player of Mason Mount’s performance. And he definitely is one of our top recommendations as a mid-price midfielder in FPL.
