As an avid player of Fantasy Football on various different websites, I am curious to know which Arsenal players you have in your fantasy teams, just as a bit of fun really! My current team has three Gunners players, but would have more in it if it was allowed.
The three Arsenal players I have in my Fantasy Team are Aaron Ramsey, Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott. Last season Theo was a constant in my team, as he is good value for both goals and assists for any team.
This season he has already proved a healthy presence in my team, gaining two assists, but has not get score a goal, despite having chances in the north London derby. No doubt he will probably stay in my team for the majority of the campaign and add goals to those assists.
The choice of Gibbs was simple. As a full-back he gets forward well and provides decent crosses for his teammates and the Gunners tend to keep clean sheets, even if there is doubts about the backline and the keeper. He should also be a mainstay, barring injury of course.
The other Arsenal player in my team is Aaron Ramsey, because he has enjoyed such a good start to the campaign and because he is value for money. Although the Wales international has not got me many points from his defensive midfield position, I am hoping for a few assists and goals along the way this season.
The two Gunners players that I dearly wish I could afford to put in are new signing Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud. I was just waiting for the Gunners to complete his signing, to put him in my team, only for my move to bring in the Germany international to be scuppered by lack of funds.
I regret not putting in Giroud at the start of the season, obviously because of his fine goal scoring form so far this season. With Arsenal not purchasing a senior striker this summer he would have been a good option for any fantasy team.
For anybody looking to transfer Arsenal players into their team for the weekends then you should look no further than the above pair, as long as the pair avoid injury on international duty.
The other Arsenal player I would recommend putting into your team is Spaniard Santi Cazorla. He has had a slow start to the season, but is sure to hit form in the near future, as class is permanent.
The Gunners have a really good run of fixtures and any Arsenal players in your team are likely to garner you a decent amount of points in the coming weeks. Good luck, have fun and I hope your Fantasy Teams are successful this season.
