Fantasy Premier League Predictions – Crystal Palace FPL Team Preview (2023/24 EPL)

Arlo Gibbons


The article is a preview of Crystal Palace’s team for the upcoming Fantasy Premier League (FPL) season. The author discusses various aspects of the team, including last year’s stats, standout players, recommended defenders, midfielders, and forwards, favorable fixtures, and how many Crystal Palace players they would include in their team for Gameweek 1.

The author highlights Tyrick Mitchell as their favorite Crystal Palace defender. They consider him a solid and affordable option at £4.5m, as he finished second on the team among defenders last year with 93 points. Despite not having much upside, Mitchell is seen as a reliable choice.

In terms of midfielders, the author mentions Eberechi Eze as one of their favorite plays. They believe his form improved after the reappointment of Roy Hodgson last season. Eze scored 125 points in his first EPL season, with 10 goals in 29 starts. Despite his strong finish to the previous season, Eze is still owned by less than 12% of FPL teams for the upcoming campaign.

The article also discusses Crystal Palace’s lack of a viable FPL striker. Christian Benteke is the only Palace striker to have reached double-digit goals since the 2017/18 season. Jean-Philippe Mateta is mentioned as a similar type of striker but not one to specifically target for FPL purposes.

In terms of fixtures, the author highlights Gameweeks 11-15 as a favorable run for Crystal Palace. They will be facing three teams that finished 14th or lower last season, as well as two newly promoted sides. This stretch also includes the only three games against teams with a “Fixture Difficulty Rating” of two throughout the season.

The author mentions that they are likely to have Eze in their Gameweek 1 squad, as they believe he is one of the best midfield options outside of the top teams. However, they do not foresee rostering any other Crystal Palace players at the start of the season.

As a bold prediction, the author suggests that Crystal Palace could have three defenders who score over 100 points this season. While no Palace defender achieved this feat last season, Hodgson’s defensive mindset could lead to more clean sheets and potential value in the backline.

Overall, the article provides insights into Crystal Palace’s FPL prospects for the upcoming season, highlighting key players, recommended picks, and favorable fixtures.
