Apologies for the lateness of the return to the fantasy football arena. Due to various issues, we have failed to deliver our content on FPL. Well, as they say, better late than never, so without further ado, here are the players we picked out for gameweek four of FPL:
Timothy Castagne (£5.7m, Leicester)
The Belgian full-back has made a superb start to life in the English Premier League. The former Atalanta star is a potent attacking threat from his defensive position. Castagne has already scored once and produced two assists.
With clean sheets in short supply in the Premier League this season, defenders who can produce attacking returns are great assets. A home match against West Ham this weekend may provide the full-back with opportunities to add to his tally, even if the Hammers have improved upfront in recent matches.
Raul Jimenez (£8.6m, Wolves)
The Mexican forward looks a great pick ahead of a home game against that leaky Fulham defence this weekend. Jimenez endured a nightmare last time out in the top-flight, scoring an own goal in a 4-0 away defeat against West Ham. The 29-year-old has scored twice in his three Premier League games this season, having found the net 30 times in the last two league seasons, while also producing 17 assists in the process. The striker could be an outside choice for the captaincy in gameweek four.

Danny Ings (£8.5m, Southampton)
The former Liverpool striker is Mr Consistency when it comes to scoring goals and FPL points. Last season, Ings was one of the bargains of the campaign, netting 22 Premier League goals. Coming in around the same price as Jimenez, Ings look like a no-brainer choice for anybody’s fantasy team.
A home game with defensively poor West Brom next is not the Saints only promising fixture in the short-term. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team face a trip to Chelsea before home games against Everton, a visit to Aston Villa and another match on home soil against Newcastle.
All of their next five matches could offer Ings the chance to add to his goal tally. Ings has already struck three times this season. He looks a good bet to pick up a goal haul in the near future, which could make a mockery of his price.
Chris Wood (£6.5m, Burnley)
The New Zealand international is one of the most underrated target men in the Premier League. Last season the 28-year-old scored a creditable 14 top-flight goals, in a Clarets team that struggled for creativity.
He has played just twice this season for the Clarets, scoring once. A trip to Newcastle this weekend starts a decent run of six games for Sean Dyche’s team. Burnley’s next six games are rated three or less than the difficulty chart. If you are looking for a solid mid-range forward for gameweek four and beyond, you could do much worse than the Clarets forward.
How will our picks of gameweek four perform this weekend?
