Patrick Bamford and Stuart Dallas named in FPL TOTS
Leeds United duo of Stuart Dallas and Patrick Bamford have been named in the Fantasy Premier League Team of the Season for their brilliant performances.
The Whites striker, after enduring a tough Championship season, started with a £5.5 price which worked out to be a bargain.
As the season progressed, due to the high volume of FPL managers transferring him in, his value went off the roof – reaching an all-time high of 6.9. He ended the season with 194 points – only Bruno Fernandes, Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min had more points.
Dallas, on the other hand, went under the radar in the initial stages of the campaign. As he was listed as a defender he wasn’t considered a safe bet by FPL bosses as Leeds shipped in goals left, right and centre.
However, once he started playing in a more advanced position – midfield and right-wing – he continued to deliver with goals and assists, and due to the fact he’s a midfielder, he got more attacking points than midfielders or forwards would get for the same situation.
Once Leeds solidified defensively, he was also offering an extra four points from clean sheets. He ended the season with the most FPL points for a defender – Liverpool full-back pairing of Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold finished second and third respectively.

Brilliant campaign for both
For the casual football fan, Dallas might have been a revelation, but we’ve seen what a utility player he’s been for us since Marcelo Bielsa took over at the helm.
He’s been everywhere, done everything, and it’s satisfying to see him reap the rewards of his tireless and often underappreciated performances in this Leeds side.
Bamford, on the other hand, had a lot more to prove. He went into this season being hounded by the media and there was a good chance he would not even be a first-team regular given we signed Rodrigo for a club-record fee.
However, he went on to play every single league game – making only one appearance off the bench. He justified Bielsa’s faith in him and we’re so delighted to see him fulfil his potential this season.
