Fantasy football scout: 9 overlooked players you might have missed
Antonio Valencia (Manchester United)
The Ecuadorian offers the most attacking potential from a Man United rearguard that earned 17 clean sheets last season. Placed third for successful crosses among defenders in 2016/17, Valencia (£6.5m) has also been utilised as a raiding wing-back over the summer friendlies.
Michael Keane (Everton)
A major threat from set-pieces, Keane netted twice and won more headers than any defender last season. He'll only set you back £5.5m, and also offers bonus point potential as the Toffees look to improve upon their total of 13 clean sheets in Ronald Koeman’s first year in charge.
Maya Yoshida (Southampton)
Priced at £5.0m, the Saints centre-half is handed one of the most favourable opening schedules around. He's up against only one of last season’s top nine in the first 11 gameweeks, and has already found the net in pre-season.
