Fantasy Premier League Rankings: Top Midfielders (Updated)
Fantasy Premier League Rankings: Top Midfielders (Updated)

This article is part of our Fantasy Premier League Rankings series.

The close of the transfer window finally ended the ridiculous rumors of players like Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba coming to the Premier League, and it's now time to focus on the players we'll actually get to have in our fantasy teams (I know, the rumors will start up again in December ahead of the January transfer window...and yes, I love the shenanigans).

Anyway, with new players coming into the league, we've updated our season-long positional rankings to include those new players, or adjust others who've had their role change thanks to new teammates.

We've already seen the goalkeepers and defenders, so now it's time for the midfielders:
