Out of Position Players From Gamweek 1

Out of position players are very important in Fantasy Premier League. In simple terms, for example a player classed as a defender in the Fantasy Premier League but plays in Midfield in real life.
As he plays closer to the opponent’s goals, in general terms they have more attacking potential and give owners a distinct advantage over rivals.

Out Of Position Players

Here are some players we’ve spotted playing slightly out of position in Gameweek one;

  • Pascal Gross (Midfield: Brighton)-the German played behind the striker in hid club’s defeat to man city
  • Bojan (Midfield: Stoke) played in a attacking midfield position and has regularly played as a striker in hid career
  • Kyle Walker and Danilo played at wing back for Man City

As did the following defenders:

  • Leighton Baines (Everton)
  • Hector Bellerin (Arsenal)
  • Erik Pieters (Stoke)
  • Patrick Van Aanholt (Crystal Palace)
  • Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)
  • Victor Moses will likely do the same when he returns to Chelsea team at right wing back.
  • Sadio Mane and Mo Salah both played in advanced positions for Liverpool

Possible Out Of Position Players in the coming week:
James Milner (Liverpool) and Jon Walters (Burnley) when they becoming regular starters this season.

Not all out of position players can have a positive impact on your team, when players play further back the pitch is real life matches than they are classed in the Fantasy Premier League game.

Players we noticed playing in this manner last weekend were:
Midfielder that played in defence.

  • Chris Brunt (West Brom), although Brunt got an assist he didn’t benefit fully from West Brom’s clean sheet.

Strikers that played in midfield

  • Mame Biram Diouf (Stoke)
  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)
  • Marcus Rashford (Man Utd)

Both Rashford and Calvert-Lewin provided assists last weekend but in the long term playing further back will impact their points totals.
