Fantasy Football Team of the Season Kevin De Bruyne tops the chart (1)

Fantasy football is a great way to get some enjoyment out of the bad weather we’re enjoying this winter. It’s also a way to show off how much you know about football and have fun with friends, family members or colleagues. You’ll have to create your own squad of players from teams across Europe, but I’ve put together some top picks in order to give you a basic idea of what to look for this season:

Kevin De Bruyne is the master of fantasy football this season.

Kevin De Bruyne is the master of fantasy football this season. The Belgian midfielder has been one of the best players in fantasy football this season as he has scored 16 goals and provided 10 assists for Manchester City, making him a key player for both clubs.

He is also an important part of Belgium’s squad, who are currently second in their World Cup qualifying group after a 3-0 win over Cyprus last month. De Bruyne scored twice against Cyprus on his return from injury; however, he failed to find the back of the net when Belgium faced Wales at Wembley Stadium on Thursday night (September 7th).

Virgil van Dijk has been a rock at the back for Liverpool.

The Dutchman has been superb since arriving from Southampton in January and has helped Liverpool concede the fewest goals in their Premier League campaign (16), while scoring two himself. He’s also made more interceptions than any other defender in England’s top flight, which is no mean feat.

David De Gea has kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season.

David De Gea has kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in the Premier League this season. He’s also kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper since the start of 2016.

The Spaniard picked up his second international cap for Spain on Thursday, when he made his debut between the sticks against Macedonia at Estadio Benito Villamarin in Valencia, Spain.

Christian Eriksen has been outstanding for Spurs since their switch to a 3-4-3 formation.

Christian Eriksen is an attacking midfielder who has been outstanding for Spurs since their switch to a 3-4-3 formation.

He has scored 16 goals and created 21 assists in all competitions this season, which is more than any other player. He’s also been key in helping Spurs maintain their fifth place in the Premier League table.

Eden Hazard is top of the creator list and is also joint-top scorer with 16 goals to his name.

Eden Hazard has been outstanding for Chelsea this season, scoring 16 goals. He is also joint-top scorer with 16 goals to his name.

Hazard has been integral to Belgium’s success at the World Cup and was widely expected to be part of their squad for Russia 2018, but an injury picked up in February ruled him out of action for six weeks.

He returned from injury against Arsenal on May 13th and scored twice as Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 at Stamford Bridge in what proved to be his last game before leaving England again on international duty with Belgium later that month.

Alexis Sanchez was one of Arsenal’s best players before his injury against United on Boxing Day, but they haven’t won a game without him since then (all competitions).

Alexis Sanchez was one of Arsenal’s best players last season, but he has been injured since Boxing Day and they haven’t won a game without him since then (all competitions).

The Chilean is currently out with a hamstring problem and could be back in action soon after being ruled out for three weeks. If you own him on your fantasy team, keep an eye on how long he’ll be out this time around so that you can make sure that he doesn’t miss any games during the season.

These are some of the best players in fantasy football right now

These are some of the best players in fantasy football right now.

  • Kevin De Bruyne is the master of fantasy football this season. The Belgian has scored 15 goals and assisted another eight, making him one of only two players to score more than 20 goals and set up at least 10 others in the Premier League this season (the other being Mohamed Salah). He also boasts an impressive 2-1 record against Chelsea so far this year – that’s two wins for every draw!
  • Virgil van Dijk has been a rock at the back for Liverpool since his move from Southampton last summer – no doubt helped by Dejan Lovren’s departure over a year ago. With three clean sheets already under his belt and a further four points towards your total when playing against him, it’s safe to say you’d be mad not to pick up Van Dijk as part of your team ahead of Gameweek 31 (which takes place next week).
  • David De Gea has kept more clean sheets than any other goalkeeper in Europe’s top five leagues during 2018 so far: 18 out of 27 matches across La Liga & Ligue 1 combined have seen opponents hit woodwork or be denied by Manchester United stopper…and those statistics only tell half their story! That’s because once again today we saw him stand tall against Tottenham Hotspur who couldn’t find any way past him despite plenty attempts from their frontmen including Eriksen & Alli who both tested him regularly throughout 90 minutes without success before Dembele struck home late on after being set up by Eriksen himself just moments earlier.”

Conclusion
