The first true value pick of the ATFPL team of the season, Neil Taylor of Swansea is the cheap reliable defender you need in a rotation system. He was initially priced at 4.5 million (and rose to 4.8 million) and registered an impressive 13 clean sheets — only defenders playing for Chelsea, Southampton, and the aforementioned Lescott kept the same amount or more.
While his point scoring came largely on the back of clean sheet points — and less importantly, four bonus points — he still managed three assists. The assists should be repeatable next season as he has the underlying statistics to back them up with 22 key passes (18th of defenders).
Although Taylor registered only six clean sheets at home, Swansea mainly denied goals for opponents in the bottom half of the table (10 out of 13). This could give rise to expanding defensive rotations for Swansea to include easier games away from home next season, as Fantasy managers will surely look for bargains in Garry Monk’s defence.
