Gameweek 4 – Transfer Deadline Day

In 2011/12 on September 10, 2011 at 9:47 am

The transfer window has been and gone but who are the must have buys for fantasy premier league gameweek 4?

English Premier League clubs spent £485m in the summer transfer window, up 33% from last year – giving plenty of opportunity for mixing up your fantasy premier league team in gameweek 4.

Emmanuel Adebayor
The lanky striker always starts well.  On 4 February 2006, Adebayor made his Arsenal debut  at Birmingham City and scored after 21 minutes.  For Man City, he scored a goal on his debut against Blackburn Rovers past Paul Robinson in the third minute.  At £8million Adebayor is a fantasy premier league bargain – at least for the first few months when he’s got something to prove.  I predict another debut goal at Wolves.  #buy

Nicholas Bendtner
Big time Bendtner could be a good punt at £6.4million.  Is he as good as he thinks he is?  No.  Will he score goals if he plays up front.  Yes.  At Sunderland Bendtner has something he never had at Arsenal.  He will be starting – every week – and as a striker not on the wing.  Like Adebayor he could be a good punt whilst he has still got something to prove.  #buy

Mikel Arteta
The silky Spaniard  is fantasy premier league royalty.  For the past 5 seasons Arteta has scored over 17 bonus points / season and in 2006/7 scored a whopping 27 bonus points (as well as 9 goals and 10 assists).  Even last season when Arteta struggled with injuries he got 3 goals, 4 assists and 18 bonus points.  For Arsenal we don’t yet know if he will be playing behind the striker or as a deeper centre midfielder but with RvP ahead of him and Theo Walcott on the wings against Swansea you would like to think there are points to be had.  #buy
