With the traditional September break, it is time for the Fantasy Football auction also for the increasing number of fantamanagers who use the Mantra mode, a game system that compared to the Classic one presents greater realism and greater attention to the real roles of the players. Here are our 5 tips for midfield:
Jordan Veretout (Rome)
It is one of the cornerstones of the Roma, his starting place in the 4-2-3-1 midfielder duo of Mourinho is not up for debate. It guarantees an excellent average grade and he is also the (infallible) penalty taker of yellow and red, a quality that, combined with his ability to enter, can make him arrive in double figures. As C is probably the top of the department.
Ruslan Malinovskyi (Atalanta)
All ‘Atalanta it has lived through two years almost in photocopy: a muted start followed by a devastating second part of the season. Natural left-handed, endowed with great ballistic skills, he has now conquered the place as a starting attacking midfielder in the tactical chessboard of Gasperini. Considering the high propensity for turnover of the Piedmontese coach and the European commitments of the Nerazzurri there will be plenty of opportunities to let him take a breath, but in the past he has shown that he can make a difference even starting from the bench. In the role of T he is undoubtedly one of the finest pieces.
Franck Kessiè (Milan)
Fresh from an extraordinary season, the President, as it is nicknamed by the fans Rossoneri, he is probably the top of the department in the role of M being the only penalty midfielder in the whole championship. Unlike Veretout his scoring booty depends almost exclusively on the 11-meter shots: only 2 goals scored in action last season. However, it guarantees absolute ownership, consistency of performance and a low propensity for cards, a rarity for the position in which he plays. There are two possible contraindications related to its purchase: the story of the contract renewal with Milan which could lead to sensational market scenarios and the Africa Cup of Nations, which will keep him away from the Serie A fields for about 1 month.
Mikkel Damsgaard (Sampdoria)
He was one of the protagonists of the splendid journey of the Denmark to the last Europeans where he was able to fill the void left by the unfortunate Eriksen. The young Dane has everything to be a potential crack fantasy football: speed, technique, a right with great strength and precision and a tactical flexibility that makes him usable in all the roles of the trocar. The departure of Yankee it also strengthened its ownership prospects. Its versatility (W, T, A) makes it usable in the Mantra with any module.
Robin Gosens (Atalanta)
The top of the department in the role of E. The German winger has become a certainty from a fantasy football point of view. An average rating of 6.27, 11 goals and 6 assists: these are the numbers of his last sensational season. Undisputed owner of the injury role allowing him to have everything to confirm himself on the excellent levels of the last 2 years. And to do so the fortune of the fantamanager who will manage to grab it.
