Bonus Point Kings

As we’re half way through the season, its a good time to take a snapshot of the bonus point awards allocated by Sky. These are crucial for getting an edge over the competition.

Goalkeepers

Butland looks the standout choice here. Coming in at a bargain price of 4.9 and harvesting 12 bonus points and an impressive 3 MOTM awards. The other keeper in the budget bracket to look out for is Gomes, who is also racking up the clean sheets in a resolute Watford defence. At a ridiculously low 3.3, Elliot is also one to watch as, despite only 8 starts, he has 4 bonus points and 2 MOTM awards.

Defenders

Frances is the bonus king here, averaging either passing or tackle bonus almost every match. Coming in at 4.8, if Bournemouth can begin to collect a few more clean sheets he will become a real option for our backlines. With Watford and Tottenham’s defence looking more assured, Nyom and Dier also look prime targets if you’re thinking of drafting in a defender. Lastly, if you think Chelsea can turn things around, Azpilicueta looks an interesting option. However, be aware that he has been left on the bench in recent outings

Midfielders

Given that he has only produced 2 assists and no goals all season Fabregas has been forgotten by fantasy managers, but he continues to be the most prolific when it comes to bonus points and is one to watch if Chelsea can turn things around. As Ramsey also has assists and goals in his locker he looks the stand-out pick here. The rest of the positions are dominated by defensive midfielders who are probably best avoided as they rely solely on bonus points and offer little in the way of goal and assist threat.
