Manchester City’s Jack Grealish should have a more productive season

The Premier League is just over a week away from its return and with it will come the Fantasy Premier League.
Played by over nine million people, fantasy football has become a mainstay for Premier League fans around the world.
Here are four underrated players who could have a say in the new campaign.
Goalkeeper – Bernd Leno £4.5m
Selected by just 0.6% of this year’s Fantasy Premier League players, it’s fair to say that Bernd Leno has flown under the radar.
However, the Arsenal keeper is said to be close to a move to Fulham and scored 131 points just two seasons ago. If the move is completed quickly, the German could also benefit from a lenient early fixture list as only one of the Cottagers’ opening nine games has a difficulty rating above three.
Defender – Sven Botman £4.5m
At just £4.5million, Newcastle’s new signing Sven Botman stands out as a value defensive option. However, less than 3.5% of players signed the Toon’s newest signing so he could prove to be an interesting differential.
The Dutchman scored three goals and one assist in 25 games for Lille in Ligue 1 last term and is part of a new Newcastle four-man look that should be a different proposition in their first full season under Eddie Howe.
Midfielder – Jack Grealish £7m
After an indifferent first season at Manchester City, Jack Grealish has been largely ignored by the FPL community with just 5.2% of players selecting the England international.
However, the creative midfielder racked up 149 and 135 points in the two seasons before his move from Eithad and could benefit from signing Erling Haaland. Grealish assisted Haaland’s first goal in a City shirt and looks likely to link up well with the Norwegian.
Striker – Brennan Johnson £6m
Nottingham Forest splashed the cash after returning to the Premier League for the first time since 1999, but their most important player could be youngster Brennan Johnson.
The 21-year-old scored 16 goals and ten assists in the Championship last season, and if he transfers some of that form to the top flight he could prove a £6million hit.
Johnson is also owned by less than three percent of all managers, which seems like an interesting differential possibility.
