Who are the biggest price hikes and drops in Fantasy Premier League for 2023-24?

-

If you’re getting ready for game week one of the 2023-24 Fantasy Premier League season and are wondering where the biggest shifts in player price tags have been, then we’ve got you covered here.

Sometimes a significant price rise is totally justified based on a player’s impact the previous season, sometimes it can be a bit of a head-scratcher, and there are occasions where a notable drop in player value provides a real opportunity to snap up a potential points-scoring monster at a reasonable outlay.

The biggest price jumps

It may come as no surprise that Erling Haaland’s value has shot up by £2.5 million, making the Norwegian the most expensive player ever at £14m, but it has to be said it’s not only understandable, but still good value too. 

The Manchester City player’s debut season produced 36 league goals and eight assists, leading to him being the top points scorer in 2022-23 with a total of 272.

Marcus Rashford’s stellar season for Manchester United sees the England international’s price jump £2.5m to £9m, thanks to his 17 goals and 7 assists helping him break the 200-point barrier, while Martin Odegaard’s form for Arsenal in their impressive title tilt last season means the Dane is now priced at £8.5m – a £2m increase.

And while not one of the biggest shifters in price, at £1m more expensive this time around Harry Kane proves an intriguing prospect. Despite constant speculation over his future the Tottenham forward didn’t just manage to maintain focus, he tallied an impressive 30 goals and nine assist for the north London club and has looked as dedicated as ever in pre-season.

Whose price has dropped off?

Son Heung-min’s least prolific season since his first at Spurs, both in terms of goals (10) and assists (six), had many questioning the previous season’s joint golden boot winner’s form, as well as predicting the onset of a decline in his effectiveness.

At a drop of £3m to a price tag of £9m for this season, the South Korea international’s value still looks good. He has looked relaxed in pre-season as Ange Postecoglou starts the rebuild at Spurs, and Son’s style should suit the Australian’s playing philosophy.

At £10.5m Kevin De Bruyne still commands a sizeable part of any budget, but the Manchester City midfielder is valued at £1.5m less than last season, in spite of the fact he assisted in a huge 18 goals – the league’s highest by a good margin – as well as contributing seven goals of his own to City’s triumphant league run.

Raheem Sterling is another player who sees a punchy £3m cut from his value, down to £7m, and the Chelsea player could be another to offer great value at such a significant reduction, especially with Mauricio Pochettino’s arrival and a serious reinvigoration on the cards at the London club.
