Most generous Premier League fantasy defenders

In an earlier blog, I examined three Premier League goalkeepers who had their onion bags filled on a regular basis and gave up a combined 179 goals in 101 games. In this piece, as we look forward to the launch of the new fantasy game around July 25, I offer a look at a dozen Premier League defenders, who were easier-than-normal marks (including some who went down with their relegated ship).

Emerson Boyce, Wigan Wigan gave up 73 goals and Boyce conceded 66 of them. Not surprisingly, the relegated Latic only had five clean sheets while playing 36 games. He also had an own goal. Boyce posted 118 fantasy points.

Matthew Lowton, Aston Villa Aston Villa's bullet-riddled defense gave up 69 goals and Lowton was part of 66 and also recorded only five clean sheets in 37 games played. Lowton tallied 116 fantasy points.

Maynor Figueroa, Wigan Another Latic who was part of the punch-drunk relegated team. Figueroa saw 56 goals get by him in 33 matches. He had one red card and helped on just five clean sheets. Figueroa had a measly 89 fantasy points.

Gareth McAuley, WBA The Baggies finished a surprising and strong eighth in the table, but let in 57 goals. McAuley in 36 games gave up 55 of them and had an Own Goal. He had 134 fantasy points.

Adrian Mariappa, Reading Mariappa was part of the dreadful Reading defense that gave up 73 goals. In 29 games played, he was responsible for 55 goals conceded. The relegated Royals defender only had 81 fantasy points.

Cieran Clark, Aston Villa Another Villa defensive villain, Clark in 29 games was nicked for 54 goals and had an own goal. He ended the season with a puny 74 fantasy points.

Russell Martin, Norwich City The Canaries team gave up 58 goals, 53 of them came on Martin’s watch. In 31 games, Martin had seven clean sheets and 115 fantasy points.

Nathaniel Clyne, Southampton The Saints were often the "aints" on defense, giving up 60 goals. Clyne was on the pitch when 53 of them fluttered the net. In 34 games he had 115 fantasy points.

Jonas Olsson, WBA Olsson is hard to figure. Just looking at him, you would think he would be better than his statistics, but the Baggies' big defender gave up 53 of Albion's 57 goals (and scored an own goal) and in 36 matches had 107 fantasy points.

Brede Hangeland, Fulham Hangeland has had better seasons. Fulham finished 12th in the table and gave up 60 goals. Hangeland was dinged for 52 of them in 35 games and had a poor 99 fantasy-point season.

Davide Santon, Newcastle Newcastle was a bad team in 2012-2013 and the Magpie defense surrendered 68 goals. Santon was in for 31 of the games, had just 88 fantasy points and saw 52 goals get by him. He had only three clean sheets to his credit.

Winston Reid, West Ham West Ham had a fantastic goalkeeper in Jussi Jaaskelainen who made 166 saves. Any other goalkeeper and Reid would have conceded more than the 51 goals that counted against him. Reid had 10 of JJ's 11 clean sheets. Reid played in 36 matches and had 119 fantasy points.
