Calculating The Cleanie – GW17

Streaming defenders is an essential tactic in Draft Fantasy Football, so we’re here to outline the best options on a weekly basis.

We pick out the best options for a clean sheet to be found in a Premier League defence with potentially low ownership, as well as players who look set to start for a top 6 side on a given gameweek.  Pick up a free agent from one of these sides to give your team a better chance of victory!


We’re changing up the format for GW17, as there will be lots of rotation occurring, as well as limited options for good fixtures among the lower ownership sides.

Victor Moses looks set to start for Chelsea away at Huddersfield, after coming on as a subsitute during the defeat to West Ham at the weekend.  Moses is likely to be a free agent considering his injury lay-off, and the rotation at the right wing-back area.

Burnley face a struggling Stoke City side at Turf Moor, with Phil Bardsley set to continue at right-back in the abscence of Matt Lowton.  Bardsley is likely to be a free agent, and will be a great one-week pick up for a clean sheet.

Serge Aurier or Danny Rose may be worth a punt, as they are likely to take over the reigns at the full back positions for Tottenham at home to Brighton.  Spurs are without a clean sheet in five games, however.

Liverpool look set to keep a clean sheet at home to West Brom, and Dejan Lovren may well be a free agent after recently returning from injury.  Klopp is rotating a hell of a lot, but with limited options at centre back, Lovren will surely start.  Trent Alexander-Arnold may be in line for a start if you don’t fancy Lovren.

And finally, Eliaquim Mangala will surely start in defence for Man City away at Swansea after Vincent Kompany’s injury at the weekend.  The French defender may be worth a shot, despite his lack of individual quality.
