Fantasy Premier League Tips: 10 Last Minute Players You Should Consider

10. Steve Mounie

Club: Huddersfield Town

Cost: £6m

Standing at a towering 6'3", Benin international Steve Mounie looks a safe bet to lead newly promoted Huddersfield Town's line this season. He's the club's record signing at £11.5m, and with 14 goals in 35 Ligue 1 games for Montpellier last season, he comes with a decent track record in a league dominated by Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain.

FPL players may be put-off by Mounie's lack of Premier League experience, but he looks like a decent first week pick-up. Huddersfield's opponents, Crystal Palace, are in the midst of adopting a more expansive system under new coach Frank de Boer, and may be unsettled by The Terriers' brash, in-your-face style, which emphasises a high tempo and full-pitch pressing above all else.

David Wagner's side are going to take it to Palace, and as their first choice striker, Mounie is their most likely points-scorer. He's also nice and cheap at £6m, so even if you don't want to rely on Mounie for the duration of the season, he'd make a good second or third option.
