As Fantasy Premier League managers can now select their 15-man squads, The Scout analyses standout budget and premium players in each position.
The Brazilian goalkeeper offers a secure route into Manchester City's resilient defence.
Ederson was the only player to start all 38 Gameweeks for the champions last season.
That helped him finish as the second top-scoring goalkeeper in FPL, with 169 points, thanks also to 20 clean sheets.
Ederson has an excellent opening set of matches that can reward early investment for 2019/20.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only two of the champions' first 11 Gameweeks score more than three.
|1||WHU (A)||3||7||EVE (A)||4|
|2||TOT (H)||4||8||WOL (H)||3|
|3||BOU (A)||3||9||CRY (A)||2|
|4||BHA (H)||2||10||AVL (H)||2|
|5||NOR (A)||2||11||SOU (H)||2|
It is worth noting that Pep Guardiola’s team kept a clean sheet in both corresponding fixtures in 2018/19.
But despite that hefty price tag, he has been a popular pick since the game launched last week.
He is the fourth most-owned goalkeeper in FPL, sitting in 17.7 per cent of squads.
Ederson's favourable opening schedule and potential for clean sheets can make him the go-to pick for those who like to spend big on their goalkeepers.
