Which Dream Team players have increased in price the most this season?

December 10, 2020

Money talks. And that can be both a blessing and a curse for Dream Team bosses.

There are fewer things in life more frustrating than delaying a transfer only to find yourself unable to afford the player you want.

Just ask Ed Woodward.

Equally, if you were shrewd enough to recruit a player before their value exploded then the you may be able to snowball those gains into mini-league glory.

We’ve taken a closer look at the players who have risen in price the most this season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – £3.0m to £4.6m

DCL has provided value for money like you wouldn’t believe this term.

The Everton striker leads the Premier League scoring charts having registered 11 goals in 11 games – just two fewer goals than his entire haul last season.

The 23-year-old has bagged 124 points for Dream Team gaffers and is the second-highest scorer in the game.

So it’s no wonder his price has jumped by a whopping £1.6m!

Jack Grealish – £3.0m to £4.6m

We won’t waste any of your time extolling the virtues of Jack Grealish.

He’s bloomin’ great and most DT managers know it.

The Aston Villa midfielder started at has equalled Calvert-Lewin’s increase of £1.6m through some talismanic performances – and the Villains have played two fewer games than most of their Prem rivals!

The 25-year-old is averaging 7.9 points every single match and is now ranked as the 12th best Dream Team asset.

Jannik Vestergaard – £1.5 to £2.7m

Talk about going under the radar.

The giant Southampton centre-back has been quietly going about his business, stealthily picking huge points hauls along the way.

In fact, only Chelsea’s regular back four, Joao Cancelo (£4.3m) and Andy Robertson £4.3m) can better Vestergaard’s 52-point tally among defenders.

A round of applause for those who picked him up at a bargain £1.5m.

Kurt Zouma – £2m to £3.2m

Kurt Zouma has picked up the pleasant habit of scoring goals.

The centre-back has grabbed four of them in 16 outings this season and returned 93 points for his 24.2% ownership.

Obviously his exploits haven’t gone unnoticed with his price rising by £1.2m but he’s still cracking value given he’s the leading defender.

Ben Chilwell – £3m to £4.2m

A pattern is emerging here.

Chelsea have been defensively sound this season, keeping ten clean sheets in all competitions.

Best of the rest…

Nicolas Pepe – £3m to £4.2m

An unlikely riser but the Arsenal winger’s Europa League form has produced a steady flow of points on Thursday nights.

Reece James – £3m to £4.1m

AnotherChelsea defender. The full-back has nailed down his position in Frank Lampard’s starting XI and has risen by £1.1m as a result.

Callum Wilson – £2.5m to £3.6m

Not in the most attacking side (by any stretch of the imagination) but if Newcastle score, he’s almost certainly involved somehow.

Patrick Bamford – £2m to £3m

Contender for the surprise package of the season? The Leeds talisman has risen by £1m thanks to his eight goals this campaign.

Harry Kane – £6.5m to £7.5m

The Spurs started as one of the most expensive players in Dream Team and he reached an eye-watering £7.8m at his peak but has settled to a more reasonable £7.5m at the time of writing.
