Will you start by signing or a great striker to get you the goals, such as Jordan Rhodes who is the most picked overall player this season? And we can't forget the return of Grant Holt who is back in the Sky Bet Championship this season and will be many manager's favourite to grab the goals and points!

The choice in midfield is equally difficult, with midfielders such as Joshua King, Matt Ritchie and Joel Grant all challenging for a spot on your Fantasy Football League team. Matt Richie has already proven himself in both Leagues 1 and 2 over the last couple of seasons. Tom Ince's performances last season will undoubtedly make him a target for any manager with the cash to spare. Chris Eagles showed his worth and was high on last year's top picks list, and is a sure bet to do the same again this year. If you are feeling more conservative with your cash, you could look to Wade Elliott or Lewis Buxton as solid additions to your team.

You'd go wrong not to consider some of this year's top defensive picks for your team, with Sam Byram, Wayne Bridge and Miguel Llera all popular with Fantasy Football League managers. Alternatively other defenders such as Bruno Saltor and Kieran Trippier had good seasons last year and are good shouts to repeat that form.

This leaves us with the all-important goalkeepers; Kasper Schmeichel and Tomasz Kuszczak both performed well last season and are sure to be top picks again. Will Robert Green prove himself to be a great scoop or could Adam Federici help hoist your team to the top of the Fantasy Football League?
