Everton stars look tempting for early fixtures
Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Lucas Digne could be popular initial targets given Toffees’ kind start
The Scout assesses the opening player prices in 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League and their implications.
Everton’s key players at both ends of the pitch have been favourably priced ahead of a strong opening schedule.
Frontman Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) was their most influential attacking player in 2020/21.
When selected, he was involved in a team-leading 54 per cent of their goals, scoring 16 and assisting a further six.

His 31 big chances and 46 shots on target both put him among the top three forwards in Fantasy last term.
That highlights his potential ahead of a kind run of opponents, with Everton avoiding all of last season’s top eight sides in the first six Gameweeks.
Price drop for Digne
Left-back Lucas Digne (£5.5m) has dropped slightly in price from last season’s initial £6.0m valuation.
Nine assists and nine clean sheets in his 30 matches underlines his ability to deliver at both ends of the pitch.
