The Premier League’s 2022-23 season came to a close on May 28, 2023 with Manchester City lifting the title.

Best of Bets takes a deep dive into who were the 10 best defenders in the Fantasy Premier League’s 2022-23 season.

Fantasy Premier League 2022-23 – 10 Best defenders of the season


10. Pervis Estupinan – Brighton & Hove Albion – 128 points
At the beginning of the season, no one would have given Brighton & Hove Albion a chance to feature in their prediction for the top 10 spots in the Premier League table, but the Seagulls surpassed all expectations and qualified for the Europa League group stages after finishing sixth in the table. However, one player that stood out was Pervis Estupinan, who formed a crucial part of their defence as well as attack from the wings and his points tally proves why he was one of the best defenders in the league in the 2022-23 season.

8. Sven Botman – Newcastle United – 129 points
First of four Newcastle players in this list, Sven Botman enjoyed a pretty successful first season at the club, coming up with 13 clean sheets and 129 points in Fantasy Premier League. He is one of the major reasons for Newcastle’s qualification for the Champions League next season.

8. Dan Burn – Newcastle United – 129 points
First of six English players in this list, Dan Burn led Newcastle United to a top four finish with a much versatile role in defence. The traditional centre-back was often deployed at left-back and did an immense job in helping Newcastle qualify for the Champions League. He gained 129 points in the 2022-23 Fantasy Premier League season.

7. Tyrone Mings – Aston Villa – 130 points
Like Newcastle, Aston Villa too enjoyed an immensely successful season on the pitch as they came seventh on the Premier League table. As a result, they attained a qualifying spot in Europe’s third tier competition, the UEFA Europa Conference League. Much credit for their success goes to Tyrone Mings. The English defender spearheaded their defence and gained 130 points on Fantasy Premier League throughout the season.

6. Fabian Schar – Newcastle United – 139 points
Newcastle United showcased one of the best defensive record in the Premier League’s 2022-23 season.  Fabian Schar formed part of an imperious back four alongside Dan Burn, Kieran Trippier and Sven Botman, out of which Schar had 15 clean sheets to his name for the Magpies, earning 139 points in total, thus making him the sixth best defender in Fantasy Premier League.

5. Ben Mee – Brentford – 143 points
Brentford‘s amazing season on the pitch was much thanks to Ben Mee’s excellence at the back. The English defender claimed 143 points throughout the 2022-23 Premier League season as Brentford finished ninth on the table.

4. Gabriel – Arsenal – 146 points
The second Arsenal player on this list with 146 points to his name is Brazilian centre-back Gabriel.
The towering defender amassed such a points tally in Fantasy Premier League in the 2022-23 season courtesy of 15 additional points he won as bonus!

2. Trent Alexander-Arnold – Liverpool – 156 points
One of the most talented attacking full-backs in the Premier League, Trent Alexander-Arnold is tied second with Ben White on 156 points. The Englishman coming second in a defenders list is quite extraordinary considering the topsy-turvy season Liverpool endured in 2022-23. Trent scored 156 points, with two goals, 11 assists and 10 clean sheets to his name!

2. Ben White – Arsenal – 156 points
Arsenal’s rise to Premier League title challengers in the 2022-23 season was much thanks to their full-backs. But, their right-back Ben White was one of their best performing players on the pitch and in Fantasy Premier League. The English full-back claimed 156 points throughout the Premier League season with two goals, five assists and 15 clean sheets!

1. Kieran Trippier – Newcastle United – 198 points
Fantasy Premier League’s bonus points machine, Kieran Trippier enjoyed yet another incredible spell in the game, but unlike his previous seasons, this season, his contributions also helped Newcastle secure Champions League football for next season.
The English full-back was the highest contributor in fantasy points among defenders with 198 and scored 10 or more points five times during the 2022-23 season!
