Brentford's 4-0 home win over Manchester United highlighted the potential of their favourably-priced players in Fantasy Premier League.

Centre-back Ben Mee (£4.5m) and midfielder Mathias Jensen (£5.0m) were Brentford's top performers on Saturday, each claiming 14 points.

The pair are among the top six outfield players in terms of value in Fantasy, delivering 3.1 and 3.0 points per million (ppm) spent respectively.

Top outfield players for value
Player Position Price Points Value
Schar DEF £4.6m 20 4.3
Rodrigo MID £6.1m 22 3.6
Gross MID £5.6m 18 3.2
Mee DEF £4.5m 14 3.1
Dasilva MID £4.6m 14 3.0
Jensen MID £5.0m 15 3.0

Meanwhile, their team-mates Josh Dasilva (£4.6m) and Ivan Toney (£7.0m) have produced attacking returns in each of the opening two Gameweeks.

Midfielder Dasilva has emerged as a popular pick for managers’ benches following his goals against Leicester City and Man Utd.

He is the third most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning 283,000+ new owners ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

Toney has immediately shown his all-round style of play in his first two outings. 

He followed up his Gameweek 1 goal against Leicester by supplying two assists against Man Utd.

In terms of value, his 2.4ppm ranks second only to the 2.6ppm of Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m) among forwards in Fantasy.

Toney's second assist v Man Utd

Crucially, Brentford are set to embark on a very favourable run of opponents that further lifts the appeal of their players in Fantasy.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next five matches score only two.

Leeds United and Arsenal also have kind schedules and offer in-form mid-priced options.

Four of both clubs’ next five matches score two in the FDR.

Leeds’ Rodrigo (£6.1m) is the top-scoring player in Fantasy on the back of three goals in his first two outings.

Arsenal offer options in every position, giving the likes of William Saliba (£4.5m), Gabriel Martinelli (£6.2m) and Jesus the platform to continue thriving for many Gameweeks to come.
