As we prepare for the 2017-2018 fantasy Premier League season on DraftKings it is important to review the top scorers from last season. By identifying the players who had success on DraftKings it will help with roster selection and understanding what players maximize collecting DraftKings fantasy points.
10. Dele Alli, M, Tottenham Hotspur
463 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Dele exploded on the scene after moving to Tottenham from MK Dons in 2015. The England international scored 18 goals from midfield while also chipping in seven assists. The sky is the limit for Dele, and he should be a major fantasy star next season.
9. Diego Costa, F, Chelsea
464.75 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Costa is expected to be sold by Chelsea, so it is more than likely he will not be plying his trade in the Premier League next season. Chelsea has already signed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid who could easily find his name on this list next season.
8. Phillippe Coutinho, M, Liverpool
466.5 DraftKings Fantasy Points
The Brazilian wizard is being targeted by Barcelona as a potential replacement for the newly departed Neymar. Expect Liverpool to do all they can to hold onto Coutinho who recorded over 100 crosses and shots last season.
7. Eden Hazard, M, Chelsea
471 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Hazard returned to form along with Chelsea last season, and he ended the campaign with 16 goals and five assists. Hazard is a genius on the ball, and he drew 101 fouls (second to Wilfried Zaha’s 121). Yes, fouls drawn get you a fantasy point a piece on DraftKings.
6. Romelu Lukaku, F, Everton
(Now playing for Manchester United)
503.75 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Lukaku played for Everton last season and was able to complete a dream move to Old Trafford this transfer window. He’ll be the centerpiece of the Man U attack and 25 goals may be in the cards once again for the powerful attacker.
5. Kevin DeBruyne, M, Manchester City
538.75 DraftKings Fantasy Points
DeBruyne had exceptional vision last season providing 18 assists for his teammates. The do-it-all midfielder had 275 crosses and was the heartbeat of the dangerous Man City attack. Expect him to hook up with emerging young star Gabriel Jesus who saw limited action last season due to a January transfer and injury troubles.
4. Harry Kane, F, Tottenham Hotspur
562.75 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Kane led the Premier League in goals with 29 and will be expected to contend for the Golden Boot again this season. He is a pure goalscorer, and he led the league in shots on goal with 58. The scary thing? Kane missed time due to an injury and only started 29 Premier League matches. He’ll push for the number one spot on this list.
3. Christian Eriksen, M, Tottenham Hotspur
592.25 DraftKings Fantasy Points
Another spot, another Tottenham star. The Danish free-kick artist finished second in the league with 15 assists and should form a powerful combo with Harry Kane for another season. Eriksen delivered 245 crosses last year, so his fantasy floor is very high.
2. Alexis Sanchez, F, Arsenal
611 DraftKings Fantasy Points
The enigmatic Chilean dynamo scored 24 goals to go with 10 assists last year, and if he remains an Arsenal player (rumored to be a target of PSG, Manchester City and others), he will be near the top of this list next season. Arsenal bolstered their attack with French forward Alexandre Lacazette, but Alexis’ production is very secure.
