Fantasy Premier League Set Piece Takers 2016-17

Please find below the FF247 Set Piece Takers List for 2016/17. This list is a guide that we hope will help you select players that have the potential to bring in goals and crucial assist points. The table is based on information gathered from last season’s games, Opta stats, pre-season friendlies and FF247 community input.

The article itself is archived under the tab at the top of the page entitled Tips/News and is linked under the drop down box ‘Fantasy Football SET-PIECE TAKERS’ so you can refer back to it at any time, as are many of our other articles and helpful tools such as Fixture Tracker and Weekly Tips.
Please be aware that this list is subject to change due to player injuries, drop in form, suspensions, manager whims, etc. The list will be updated throughout the season and as ever we welcome anybody in our community to inform us if you are aware of any updated roles or indeed anything you think we have got wildly inaccurate! You’re not perfect and neither are we ;)

  1. Well done Mito.

    This will be a brilliant help.

    Does Ronaldo know he isn’t on direct free kicks for every team? Rather you tell him than me. :D

  2. Nice one Mito, great stuff :thumbup:

  3. Cheers for this Mito. My team this season is going to consist solely of players listed above :) can you please nominate 2 keepers for me?!

  4. Hasnt Lukaku taken the pen duties over at everton?

    • Baines took the last competitive one which was against Norwich and Lukaku was on the pitch (he won the pen). Pretty sure that on was anagement orders (sensible ones) after Martinez inexplicably giving them to Lukaku and Barkley earlier in the season. Martinez had left by that point, Unsworth was in charge.

      • You figure a former defender like Koeman would have no problem giving Baines dead ball duties back either, considering who he is.

    • I think Baines will be the penalty taker for everton this season, even if Lukaku stay at the blue merseyside

  5. Morning Everyone,

    Another season fast approaching and i think im not too far off the final team, starting team for GW 1:

    Shaw, Williams, Stones
    Mkhitarayan, Hazard, Ayew, Mane
    Aguero, Musa, Gray

    Jakupovic, Byram, Kingsley, Fletcher

    My main dilemma left is whether to have Mane & Musa or Townsend & Vardy?

    Any suggestions or other ideas? Thanks in advance.

  6. arent you going to update this list?

    • Probably, but on the same day when set piece takers change? Doubtfully.

    • It gets reviewed periodically but we ain’t sitting changing it every week just because someone different takes a set-piece on an occasion. We could have changed the Arsenal penalty taker 3 times today if we were doing that.
