February’s Best Fantasy Football Picks
The importance of February on a season can often be overlooked sandwiched between the Christmas list and the spring title run in.
However, many a season has been made and maimed in the shortest month of the year with three-points just as vital in the years second month as the last.
With most Premier League clubs boasting at least four Premier League fixtures in February, the chance to pick up some serious Fantasy Football points is rife as we take a look at some of the players you won’t want to miss out on.
Erik Lamela – Tottenham
To date, Lamela’s best season in a Spurs shirt came during the 2015/16 campaign when he netted five Premier League goals in thirty-four games.
However, this season, the Argentine is on course to break that record after a season that has so far yielded four goals from 15 league appearances.
A crop of injuries to Spurs stars such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane has only gone to highlight the importance Lamela has to the team as the race for Europe and the title heats up.
Lamela is one of the first names on Mauricio Pocettino’s team sheet and offers the chance for some serious fantasy football points in February.
Aleksandar Mitrovic – Fulham
Fulham may be heading for relegation, but it is unlikely star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic will be joining them in the second-tier next season as a top-flight side is sure to come in for him in the summer if demotion becomes reality.
The Serbian has been at Fulham for 12 months now and had netted an incredible 22 league goals including 10 in the Premier League since making his move permanent in the summer.
Fulham have games against Manchester United, West Ham, and Southampton in February and Mitrovic will be certain to add to his tally.
A brace against Brighton at the end of January has the former Newcastle United hitman in fine form and as the main point of all of the Cottagers attacks, it would be foolish to dismiss the 6’ 2” striker this month.
Marcus Rashford – Manchester United
Admittedly, not the cheapest of choices, but Manchester United’s attacker is a man on red hot form and only getting better.
Ten goals are Rashford’s best return for United in his four seasons as a senior player and has been thriving since Ole Gunnar Solskjær took over as caretaker manager following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
The Red Devils face a big month in February with the return of the Champions League and Premier League games against Fulham, Liverpool, and Crystal Palace as well as a cup tie with Chelsea but Rashford has more than proved he is up to the task of leading the line when it matters most.Download the Free GoingFor2 App by Clicking Here...
