The Scout assesses player prices in 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League and their implications.
Manchester United stars Cristian Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes have both dropped £2.0m in price for the start of the season.
Ronaldo is the Red Devils' most expensive player coming in at £10.5m, which is £1.0m less than Manchester City’s new forward Erling Haaland.
The Portuguese was his side’s top-scoring player in 2021/22 Fantasy, amassing 159 points.
Ronaldo enjoyed a prolific end to the previous campaign, scoring nine of his 18 goals for the season in his final seven appearances.
Fernandes, meanwhile, costs £10.0m after a disappointing campaign.
The playmaker was the top-scoring player in 2020/21 Fantasy on 244 points but failed to live up to his £12.0m price tag last term.
He managed just 151 points, a total bettered by 23 other players.

|Donny van de Beek||MID||£5.5m|
Winger Jadon Sancho (£7.5m) has also dropped £2.0m in price this season and could emerge as the value target in Man Utd's attack under Erik ten Hag.
However, a mixed opening schedule is likely to temper early interest in the Red Devils.
They face three of last season’s top eight in the opening six Gameweeks.
Part 1: Saka rises after career-best campaign
Part 2: Haaland cheaper than De Bruyne
Part 3: Brentford offer early value
Part 4: Salah rises in price, Jota now a forward
Part 6: Wolves wing-backs can be budget favourites
Part 7: Havertz now a forward, Bowen climbs in cost
Part 8: Guimaraes can be a budget gem
Part 9: Son costs more than Kane, Perisic a defender
Part 10: Vardy drops in cost, Maddison rises
