Wesley Fofana (CHE) £4.4m

The centre-back is selected by only 2.3 per cent of managers for Chelsea’s visit to Fulham on Saturday.

Fofana’s low cost is the main reason for his appeal in 2022/23 Fantasy.

He started at a price of just £4.5m while still at his former club Leicester City, having missed the vast majority of the previous campaign through injury. 

After clinching his move to Stamford Bridge late in the summer transfer window, the Frenchman now looks set to establish himself as a key figure in the Blues’ defence.

Chelsea’s upcoming schedule certainly suggests Fofana can provide major value for managers.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), six of their next eight matches score a mere two.

7 FUL (A) 2
8 LIV (H) 5
9 CRY (A) 2
10 WOL (H) 2
11 AVL (A) 2
12 BRE (A) 2
13 MUN (H) 3
14 BHA (A) 2

At a cost of just £4.4m, Fofana offers a handy double-up option alongside Reece James (£6.0m) for managers looking to invest in the Blues' backline.
