The Scout's panel of FPL experts

The Scout's panel of experts reveal the players they reckon can offer the most points-per-million value in 2020/21 Fantasy Premier League.

What the experts say
Pranil Sheth (@Lateriser12)

If Phil Foden (£6.5m) cements his place in the Manchester City team, which I expect he will, he's comfortably the best value for me.

Who would imagine getting an attacker from the highest-scoring team for £6.5m?

Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman)

The answer's Foden but since I wrote about him in our "Must-Haves" article, I'll call out Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m), who should quadruple his minutes played this season.

If he keeps up his production rate, he should approximate the output of Son Heung-Min (£9.0m).

Geoff Dance (@GeoffreyDance)

Although goalkeepers tend to offer the best overall value, I’m looking to established players with nice price tags.

Anthony Martial (£9.0m) fits the bill, but I nominate Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m). He will lead an improved Everton side with more midfield creativity, and who will make a serious run at the top six.

If he gets a loan move away from Liverpool then Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) could be the value player of the season. If he doesn't then I see Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) and Che Adams (£6.0m) as the best picks.

Both have huge potential upside in terms of goal threat, and the price tag enables you to support them with the premium assets we all so badly want.

Ben Crabtree (@FC_CrabDogg)

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) provides the safest value, given the guarantee of a huge score for little money.

Looking elsewhere, Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) could prove great value and come in at a much higher price next season.

Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee)

I'm biased but Leeds United will create plenty of chances. Rodrigo Moreno (£6.0m) is not an all-out striker but I think he could possibly be on penalties and will score around 10 goals this season. More importantly he will create lots, too.

Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport)

Despite missing part of the year with injury, Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) was involved in seven goals for a Newcastle United side that were finding their footing.

I'm expecting double-digit goal contributions for a budget price, which can enable me to move in Chelsea and Manchester United big-hitters after the first few Gameweeks.

Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_)

Soucek looks like he could be great value this season, priced at just £5.0. If he can scale his returns up with his minutes across a full season, he will be the must-own budget midfielder.

Nick (@WGTA_Nick)

It may seem daft to suggest the most expensive defender as the best-value player but, even at £7.5m, Alexander-Arnold is still fantastic value. Only three players outscored him last season.
