What the experts say
Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)
Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) of West Ham United looks like being a nice option. His shots in the box seem promising for future attacking returns and he is about to enter a lovely run of fixtures from Gameweek 8.
Having just played my Wildcard, I’m starting to wish I’d gone with Vladimir Coufal (£4.5m). I expect to see defensive returns with the Hammers' schedule improving.
Pranil Sheth (@Lateriser12)
Chelsea's shutout against Manchester United showed Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) and Thiago Silva (£5.5m) will add much-needed sturdiness to the Blues' defence, and the set-piece threat of Kurt Zouma (£5.1m) raises his appeal.

Che Adams (£5.8m) finally looks to be delivering on his promising numbers and is key to Saints’ attacking play.
Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman)
So much of the value out there is among the forwards, with Patrick Bamford (£5.9m) joining Michail Antonio (£6.3m), Callum Wilson (£6.5m) and Neal Maupay (£6.6m) as bargains.
If you need someone else to balance out the big-hitters then assists from Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn (£5.5m) seem likely to continue with a strong attack in front of him.
Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair)
Antonio has been a constant menace since the tail end last season and is the focal point for West Ham.
Jack Grealish (£7.2m) looks great value. He has already played 23 passes leading to shots this season, second only to Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) despite having played one match fewer.
Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport)
Playing in an advanced position since his move to Villa, Ross Barkley (£6.0m) can offer solid offensive production on the cheap.
Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) is pushing the limits of a value pick but he is the Crystal Palace attack. He has five goals and one assist so far, ahead of a good fixture run.

Max Kilman (£4.1m) looks to have cemented a slot in a very solid Wolverhampton Wanderers back three, so he could be this season’s go-to cheap defender.
Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) has been a loyal servant in my squad and has kept three clean sheets.
Antonio is looking like great value. His fixtures turn a corner in Gameweek 8, starting with Fulham at home, and he is firmly on the radar.
Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee)
There’s a chance Kilman might be ahead of Romain Saiss (£5.2m) for that back-three role. If this is the case, he offers the best value in the game at the moment.
It's hard to predict when Phil Foden (£6.6m) will play but I think he is extremely good value, particularly when the fixtures turn for Manchester City.
