FPL Draft: Returning Coleman can bring rewards

Everton's fit-again right-back can soar over the season run-in to boost managers in FPL draft

There are only two points separating the top UK and US pundits in our Clash Across the Pond Fantasy Premier League Draft league.

Neal Thurman (50 points) leads Paul McKinnon (48 points), though with plenty of waiver activity ahead of Wednesday's Premier League transfer deadline, there is still much to play for.

Mark Sutherns continues to give chase in fourth, some 12 points off the lead. But, as he explains, Mark is still bidding to claw back that gap as he goes in search of new "old" recruits.

Time on my side

With 14 Gameweeks to go, I am still confident that there is time to compete for top spot.

But I'll need to make some inspired decisions in the waiver market and have a better run of luck with injuries.

So far, my five-man midfield has managed to carry me through a period without my first draft pick, Gabriel Jesus.

The Manchester City striker will be like a new signing once back on the pitch.

In the meantime, I'm hoping that other managers in my league are distracted by new arrivals, allowing me to shop for some proven talents.

Heaton on radar

Tom Heaton is back in training for Burnley and likely to challenge Nick Pope for starts very soon.

The top-scoring goalkeeper in Fantasy Premier League last season with 149 points, Heaton can deliver over a favourable run-in for the Clarets.

Meanwhile, Seamus Coleman is back from injury and in the Everton squad to face Leicester City.

Like Heaton, the right-back will likely be a free agent in mini-leagues and should be snapped up.

Attacking defender

The Toffees have disappointed of late but there will be further clean sheets on offer, while Coleman's attacking instincts can bring rewards.

He was directly involved in eight goals last season (four goals and four assists) - only Marcos Alonso (11) could better that.

Heaton and Coleman can be big players over the remaining Gameweeks, hopefully setting my squad up for a late surge.

They could do the same for your line-up.
