Halloween horrors: The Premier League fantasy players to avoid

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson highlights a position that is often overlooked and in doing so chooses his top picks for defenders this week.

It's only fitting that on Halloween, the focus of our fantasy attention turns to the players who, to put it bluntly, have had a horrible time of it this season.

Premier League fantasy players making the most of their game time

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson highlights his most difficult decision this week, choosing a fantasy captain.

When scouring the transfer market, managers will often go directly to total points when assessing possible targets. But quite often there are players hidden away who have scored many but have been injured or suspended for a time -- so are masked among positional leaders.

This is where points-per-appearance becomes an increasingly valuable tool as the season goes on.

Here we pick out some of the players with the best return for their pitch...
