Fantasy Premier League Rankings: December Update

Andrew M. Laird is the Senior Soccer Editor for RotoWire, as well as a fantasy football and college basketball contributor.

There have been a number of injuries and lineup changes over the past few weeks, and we decided it was time to update our Fantasy Premier League rankings. Just like last time, I and three other RotoWire soccer contributors ranked our top-20 forwards, midfielders and defensemen, and our top-10 goalkeepers.

Points were assigned to each player based on their ranking by each writer: 20 points for a first place vote, 19 points for a second place vote, 18 points for a third place vote, and so on. The rankings reflect how we think each position will finish by the end of the season.

We had no consensus top picks at any position, which just goes to show how weird of a Premier League season it's been so far. Olivier Giroud was our top forward in our last update, but Sergio Aguero has now passed him thanks to his remarkable play as of late.
