Best Brighton Fantasy Premier League Picks – 2023/24 Edition

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on the “Best Brighton Fantasy Premier League Picks!” As an FPL manager, selecting players from Brighton & Hove Albion can be a strategic move, as they offer hidden gems and potential differentials that can boost your team’s performance. In this blog, we will delve into the standout players from Brighton, their playing style, and why they could be the missing pieces to propel your FPL team to success. Whether you’re looking for a reliable defender, a creative midfielder, or a prolific forward, Brighton might just have the perfect fit for your fantasy squad. Let’s dive in and discover the best FPL picks from the Seagulls!


Bert Verbruggen / Jason Steele

I believe whoever starts at number 1 for Brighton will be a great pick once again in Fantasy Premier League as Brighton look to push on in their first full season under Robert De Zerbi. Jason Steele picked up an average of 4.3 points per game last season, the 6th best scoring ratio out of all the goalkeepers within the game.

In 15 starts he picked up 6 clean sheets and made an average of 2.47 saves per 90 minutes so if this season is like last, you’ll see a good amount of clean sheets and save points coming to which ever goalkeeper starts in goal,

We’ve spoke about who is most likely to start for Brighton, you can find that post here.


Pervis Estupiñán

Currently, Pervis Estupiñán is the most owned defenders in the whole of Fantasy Premier League (FPL). It’s clear to see why as well! As far as attacking defenders go, you’ll struggle to find one as good as him for the same price point. He’s £3.0 million cheaper than Trent Alexander-Arnold who is leaving managers pondering whether he’s worth the money if he starts playing in midfield.

Last season Estupiñán made 31 starts, showing his reliability to feature in games and get the appearance points. Within those games, he scored 1 goal and registered 7 assists. Picking up 128 points in total meaning he was in the top 10 of defenders for total points. There is currently no idea who will start as a right wing back for Brighton so Estupiñán is probably the most nailed defensive option other than Lewis Dunk in that defence. So bringing him into your team is probably the safest way into the Brighton defence currently, which shows why over 50% of managers have him!


Kaoru Mitoma

The tricky Japanese winger had a breakthrough 2022/23 and has received a hefty price rise as a reward. He’s now owned by 37.7% of managers, which show you the faith people are placing in him. Having started at £5.0 million last season, he’s now £6.5 million to own. The same price as Pascal Gross and Solly March.

So why should you own Mitoma in FPL? Well he’s super advanced up the pitch and can contribute to attacking phases in a multi dimensional way. He scored 7 goals and got 9 assists whilst only making 24 starts, making those returns nothing short of remarkable in what was quite the unfancied Brighton side at the start of last season. His price point currently puts him in that pool of options at £6.5 million that feels so tough to pick from.

Julio Enciso

I think Enciso is a great pick this year in Fantasy Premier League as last season he was a forward in the game and now is listed as a midfielder, which means you get extra points when he scored a goal and an extra point for any clean sheets he might contribute to. But despite receiving a £1.0 million price rise, he’s still a great enabler to allow you to bring in more premium assets across the board. As mentioned, he had a breakthrough season last year, so you’d like to imagine now that Alexis Mac Allister has left, there’s a feeling that a door might open for Enciso to now take a more permanent spot within the Brighton team, it’s just up to him to make that spot his in pre season.


Joao Pedro

Joao Pedro is one of the cheaper Brighton options as a forward but is probably more nailed than the other 2 to start up front! Having just made a £30 million move from Watford to the Amex this summer, it’s safe to imagine that De Zerbi and Brighton will want something to show from that investment straight away. He’s also been very promising during the pre season games on the eye test which is really beneficial to the case of bringing him in.

He’s currently listed at £5.5 million when compared to Evan Ferguson and Danny Welbeck who are £0.5 million more expensive. Ferguson we can’t guarantee as much game time as there’s feeling that he’s still young and his development needs to be managed. Whereas Welbeck is intermittently in and out of the team with injury so meaning Joao Pedro will more often than not get the nod to start games.


And there you have it, the best Brighton Fantasy Premier League picks for your FPL team! By now, you’ve gained valuable insights into the standout players from the Seagulls and how they can enhance your fantasy squad. Whether it’s the defensive solidity of a stalwart defender, the creative prowess of a midfield maestro, or the goal-scoring capabilities of a prolific forward, Brighton offers a diverse range of options to suit your FPL needs. Remember, FPL success often comes from having differential picks that other managers overlook, and Brighton players can provide that crucial edge. So, keep a keen eye on the Seagulls throughout the season, and with the right picks in your team, you could soar to the top of your FPL league standings. Best of luck, and may your FPL journey be filled with points and success!
