When it comes to solidifying your team and using differentials it starts at the back. Just look at the ownership of the United defenders, who are the best defense in the Premier, yet no defender is owned in over 10% of leagues.  Diversity used to be an old, old wooden ship now it is your best friend.  Pick two good match-up based defenders with flair regardless of price and fill in the other three slots spending no more than 14.0m.  That strategy seems to be the best thing I can think of.  Like I said the differentials are there you just have to find the crucial key pieces and go from there.  It’s like doing an actual puzzle, find the border pieces and work your way in.  Simple.  At the ned if the day you will see the big picture.  Week 9 is upon us and it has some UCL rotation risks so be wary of the news later in the week from the managers and always use common sense when bringing and dumping a player.  best of luck and here are the Wweek 9 rakings for keepers and defenders.  Cheers!


  1. David de Gea, Man United
  2. Ederson, Man City
  3. Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea
  4. Petr Cech, Arsenal
  5. Joe Hart, West Ham
  6. Jack Butland, Stoke
  7. Lukasz Fabianski, Swansea
  8. Fraser Forster, Southampton
  9. Hugo lloris, Spurs
  10. Rob Elliot, Newcastle
  11. Mathew Ryan, Brighton
  • If it’s possible I think de Gea is underappreciated.  Listen to this.  He would be the third highest scoring forward, second highest scoring midfielder and second highest scoring defender.  He also is returning almost 9 points per million dollars of salary.  Yikes can you say essential.
  • If United is the best than City isn’t too behind especially in this ranking.
  • After the big 4 goalis it falls off the cliff with a lot of possible CS and a lot of chasing.  Roster wisely.


  1. Marcos Alonso, Chelsea
  2. Kyle Walker, Man City
  3. Antonio Valencia, Man United
  4. Sead Kolasinac, Arsenal
  5. Nicolas Otamendi, Man City
  6. Cesar Azpilicueta, Chelsea
  7. Cedric, Southampton
  8. Phil Jones, Man United
  9. Hector Bellerin, Arsenal
  10. Kieran Trippier, Spurs
  11. Aaron Cresswell, West Ham
  12. Nacho Monreal, Arsenal
  13. Virgil van Dijk, Southampton
  14. Chris Smalling, Man United
  15. Gary Cahill, Chelsea
  16. Patrick van Aanholt, Crystal Palace
  17. Ryan Bertrand, Southampton
  18. Martin Olsson, Swansea
  19. Harry Maguire, Leicester
  20. Jamaal Lascelles, Newcastle
  • You would have a hard time finding a better in form defender than Kyle Walker.  Assists are there and City does score enough to make his price a carriable thing.  Do you wanna invest in a non-forward player on the Cityzens though.
  • Trippier takes on Pool, only defender ranked from the fixture.  Search party is out for Ben Davies.
  • This is not a great week for Burnley or Watford.
  • Lots of cheaper under 5.0 options are all about it this week, just gotta find the right one.  Newcastle, Swansea, Southampton and Stoke are all the ones I am talking about.
