Draft Rankings 18/19 – Goalkeepers

These are our Draft Rankings for Goalkeepers for the 18/19 Draft Fantasy Football season!

Based on a classic eight man league, 16 goalkeepers will be drafted, which means there will be at least four undrafted first choice Premier League keepers.  For this article we rank our top 20 goalkeepers – basically the first choice shot stoppers for each of the Premier League teams!  The standard scoring system for FPL/Draft Fantasy has been used to determine the rankings!

Check out our Draft Essentials: How to Draft article for our tips on when would be the best time to draft your goalkeepers!


These rankings will be constantly updated over the next few weeks, as we gain more information from friendlies.  New signings will also be added as and when they occur.  The World Cup status provides an easy reference as to when these players are likely to return for pre-season training.
