As the 2023/24 FPL season is right around the corner, it’s about time we got our teams in order to maximise returns. If you’re in a league with your friends, family or coworkers, you need to make sure you have bragging rights this season.
The 3 best FPL defenders for the 2023/24 season
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the 3 best defenders to consider for your FPL teams.
1. Ben Chilwell (6.8% ownership – £5.5m)
If you’re looking for the most reliable differential for your team, then consider signing Ben Chilwell. As we have seen in his previous teams, new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of attacking full-backs, so he centres his tactics around these positions.

This leads many managers to choose Reece James for their teams. However, for the same price I would opt for Chilwell instead. When they’re both fit, Chilwell and James are capable of picking up goal contribution points. However, Chilwell has a much greater chance than James of remaining fit. Definitely pick a Chelsea defender, ideally pick Chilwell.
