Fantasy Eliteserien: Gameweek 16 Preview

Fred Friday might’ve not had his best performance last time out but he boasts an impressive home record and is still the best captaincy choice for the week in Fantasy Eliteserien according to Fantasy Tipsters’ Jacob Silkstone.

How Did Our GW15 Picks Do?


After the 138-point high of GW14, our Tipsters Team of the Week came crashing down to earth last time around. It was a tough gameweek for just about everybody: the average score was only 39, and the five highest-owned players in the game scored just six points between them (not helped by Patrick Berg missing a penalty and Ohi Omoijuanfo missing out for baby-related reasons; congratulations to Ohi and commiserations to Berg).

Of our eleven picks, only Jónsson and Gjertsen contributed any attacking returns, with a meagre assist each. Rosenborg’s Adam Andersson was unlucky not to have a fantasy assist awarded, but did come away with a couple of bonus points in recognition of an outstanding performance.

With a blank from captain Fred Friday, our picks scored a disappointing 31 points. The pressure is on to bounce back in GW16, the first round of the fantasy cup.

New Arrivals


The Fantasy Eliteserien landscape has altered significantly in the space of a single week. With Molde’s defeat to Viking throwing the title race wide open, both of the two teams in serious contention have used the transfer window to strengthen their squads.

Reigning champions Bodø/Glimt’s key signing is Amahl Pellegrino. Pellegrino was a fantasy phenomenon during his time at Kristiansund, with hat-tricks in both of the last two seasons and a total of 25 goals last time out. After a short stint in Saudi Arabia, he’s back in Eliteserien and priced as a 12.0M midfielder in the fantasy game.

Current league leaders Molde have made two formidable signings, attack-minded right-back Martin Linnes (6.0M) from Galatasaray and winger Rafik Zekhnini (8.0M) from Fiorentina. Both are intriguing fantasy options, and Molde’s exit from the Europa Conference League lessens the rotation risk previously attached to their key assets. (Bodø/Glimt and Rosenborg, on the other hand, have crucial play-off matches in Europe coming up either side of their GW16 fixtures.) Don’t rush to buy them just yet, though: Molde have a blank gameweek coming up (their fixture with Sarpsborg was pushed forward to GW7 because of their European commitments, so Sarpsborg will also be blanking this week).

Fantasy Eliteserien GW16 Picks



Sandefjord’s Jacob Storevik (5.0M) is between the posts for us ahead of a home game against struggling Tromsø. Sandefjord have conceded just twice in their last five home games, and Tromsø have gone goalless in two of their previous four away games. The signs point to a Sandefjord win… but this is Eliteserien and form can be misleading, so don’t be too surprised if Tromsø suddenly transforms into prime Barcelona.

Stabæk’s defence have been hugely disappointing this season, with just two clean sheets so far. Having said that, their form has picked up after a managerial change and Sturla Ottesen (4.6M) offers a budget-friendly alternative at the back as they prepare to face relegation-threatened Mjøndalen.

Although Brann bounced back from a scandal-hit week to scrape a win against Sandefjord last time out, they remain rooted to the bottom of the table. Facing a side that hasn’t won away from home all season, we’ll be backing Strømsgodset’s Lars-Christopher Vilsvik (4.6M) to return points. He’s a regular set-piece taker too, and already has three assists this season.

Christian Borchgrevink (6.1M) returns from suspension needing five points to reclaim his spot as the highest-scoring defender in Fantasy Eliteserien this season. With three goals and four assists so far, he offers plenty of attacking potential even if Vålerenga fail to keep a clean sheet at home to midtable Viking.

Having been unlucky not to get any attacking returns from him last week, we’ll stick with Adam Andersson (still 5.9M) for Rosenborg’s home game against Odd. Rosenborg have kept clean sheets in both of their last two home games, while Odd failed to score in both of their previous two away games and lost their star striker in the transfer window.



In midfield, it’s tempting to recommend Amahl Pellegrino right away. There’s a risk that he makes his home debut from the bench, though, so our Bodø/Glimt midfield pick is Ulrik Saltnes (10.7M). Saltnes has more fantasy points than any other Glimt player this season, and scored twice in their European game on Thursday evening.

Oliver Edvardsen (7.2M) blanked last week after four consecutive scores of 8 points or over, but he’ll be expecting to get back on the scoresheet in Stabæk’s home game against Mjøndalen. In his previous two home games, Edvardsen has returned a total of 27 fantasy points.

Sandefjord’s midfielders have been the surprise heroes of the current fantasy season, with both Vidar Ari Jónsson and Kristoffer Normann Hansen in the top three points scorers overall. It’s hard to choose between them, but we’re backing the in-form Normann Hansen (6.1M) to pick up where he left off last week.

Johan Hove (8.1M) is the second of our Strømsgodset trio ahead of the home game with Brann. xG fans will be pleased to hear that only title favourites Molde have a higher xG than Strømsgodset in home matches this season, and Hove is a key member of an attack that will expect to feast on one of the worst Eliteserien defences.



For similar reasons, Fred Friday (8.5M) lines up as the first of our two strikers. With four goals and two assists in his last four home games, he possesses an enviable record in front of his own fans.

There are a few question marks over Rosenborg’s willingness to put out a full-strength team between two crucial European games, but we’re willing to take a calculated risk on striker Dino Islamovic (10.5M), who’s finally hitting form after a slow start to the season. He has three goals in his last four games, together with five bonus points.

Eliteserien Fantasy – A Wildcard Guide

After a few intense blank and double gameweeks in Eliteserien Fantasy including a lot of injuries and players leaving, the use of the wildcard is even more appealing just because our teams might not be in an ideal position. As you will know, the second wildcard is already available in-game so let’s see which players could come in clutch for us in our wildcard. We’ll present two goalkeepers, three defenders, three midfielders and three forwards, along with some backup options and a final wildcard draft. Let’s go!

Note: At the end of the article, there is a fixture ticker from GW16 to GW23, ideal material to start planning your Eliteserien Fantasy team.

Eliteserien Fantasy Goalkeeper Picks


Mads Hedenstad Christiansen (Lillestrøm SK – 4.5M – 3.8% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 13 (1170 mins)

⛔ Clean Sheets: 3

🧤 Saves: 37 (2.9 per match)

🅱️ Bonus Points: 1

❌ Penalty Saves: 1


This goalkeeper seems to be one of the best options on wildcard because of this price and run of fixtures (@fkh, @mjo, vs BRA, @odd, vs TIL, @s08). His stats are not anything impressive but that’s because Lillestrøm were not that good at the start of the season. Right now they are sitting in 3rd position in the form of their life. Eight saves, two clean sheets and one penalty saved in his last three matches is something very hard to ignore. This pick is also fantastic if you want a rotational goalkeeper plan since he is a very cheap asset.


Egil Selvik (FK Haugesund – 5.3M – 12.1% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 14 (1260 mins)

⛔ Clean Sheets: 6

🧤 Saves: 47 (3.3 per match)

🅱️ Bonus Points: 9

❌ Penalty Saves: 1


Even though he is more expensive than the previous pick, Selvik is good enough to get that goalkeeper starting spot in your team. He also has a very good run of fixtures despite a tricky fixture in GW16 against Lillestrøm (vs LSK, @bra, vs S08, @kbk, vs ODD, @til, vs MJO). Haugesund have been pretty poor defensively in the last few games but Egil can still get a lot of saves in FKH’s polite run of games, and why not, some bonus points.


📌 Some goalkeepers that did not make the list were Sean McDermott (Kristiansund BK – 5.6M – 24.1% owned) due to a pretty hard run of fixtures (Molde and BG in their next two games) and Viljar Myra (Strømsgodset IF – 4.6M – 14.8% owned) because his team blanks in GW19, even though he’s got a double fixture in GW20, I do not think it’s worth a try.

Eliteserien Fantasy Defender Picks


Adam Andersson (Rosenborg BK – 5.9M – 3.2% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 13 (1180 mins)

🎯 Assists: 3

⛔ Clean Sheets: 2

🅱️ Bonus Points: 5


After Kristoffer Zachariassen departure, we all thought Rosenborg would suffer, but some players have made a big step forward. Andersson is one of them. The Swedish player has got two assists, one clean sheet and five bonus points in his last three matches.  This sounds even better when you check RBK’s run of games (vs ODD, @vik, vs TIL, @s08, vs MJO, @kbk, vs VIF, vs SAN). Clean sheets are not Rosenborg’s cup of tea but the attacking returns are what make Andersson an amazing pick and still a differential due to his 3.2% ownership.


Fredrik André Bjørkan (Bodø/Glimt – 6.0M – 36% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 14 (1188 mins)

🎯 Assists: 4

⛔ Clean Sheets: 5

🅱️ Bonus Points: 4


No major surprises here. After recovering from an injury sustained in the Champions League play-off match against Legia Warsaw, the Norwegian defender is back on the menu. His recent injury record is concerning but he’s still a very template and strong pick with good fixtures ahead (@kbk, vs TIL, @odd, @vik, vs VIF, @stb, vs S08, @sif).


Igoh Ogbu (Lillestrøm SK – 4.6M – 13.9% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 15 (1530 mins)

⚽ Goals: 1

🎯 Assists: 1

⛔ Clean Sheets: 3

🅱️ Bonus Points: 7


Another cheap defender that is perfect for our fantasy teams. Nailed and sometimes involved in LSK’s goals. Even though Haugesund away from home isn’t an ideal fixture in GW16, you can bench him and start him in the following games (@fkh, @mjo, vs BRA, @odd, vs TIL, @s08).


📌 Some defenders that did not make the list were Joachim Thomassen (Sarpsborg 08 – 5.7M – 9.7% owned) because his team blanks in GW16. However, he is not a bad pick since he faces Sandefjord and Stromsgodset in his next five matches. Tomas Totland (Tromsø IL – 5.4M – 13% owned) also missed out because he faces RBK, BG, MOL and LSK in his next six matches. He also faces Sandefjord and Brann, so he’s not a bad pick at all if you start him in these matches and bench him in harder matches.

Eliteserien Fantasy Midfielder Picks


Oliver Edvarsen (Stabaek – 7.2M – 16.1% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 15 (1080 mins)

⚽ Goals: 6

🎯 Assists: 4

🅱️ Bonus Points: 7


After a horrendous start, Stabaek is now improving mainly due to Edvarsen contributions. The 22-year-old has scored five goals and assisted one in his last five matches. Some say the “purple patch” is over following a blank vs Kristiansund in GW15, but that is not right at all since he could have had some assists in that match. Stabaek have a blank fixture in GW19 but have a delicious double fixture in GW20 as well (vs MJO, @vif, vs VIK, @san, vs SIF, @bg, vs BRA). Edvardsen is of the best performers in Eliteserien at the moment, very easy decision!


Kristoffer Velde (FK Haugesund – 8.8M – 21.9%)


⏱️ Appearances: 15 (1300 mins)

⚽ Goals: 4

🎯 Assists: 7

🅱️ Bonus Points: 7


After a slow start to the season, Haugesund are back on track with their main man being Velde. (vs LSK, @bra, vs S08, @kbk, vs ODD, @til, vs MJO) are fantastic fixtures for him as well, being too hard to ignore. The team is suffering defensively lately but they don’t need a lot of chances to score goals, which means an FKH asset is basically essential. Kristoffer Velde should be your man here with two goals and four assists in his last five matches.


Kristoffer Normann Hansen (Sandefjord – 6.0M – 22% owned)


At a 6.0M price and with the fixtures he’s got (vs TIL, @s08, vs VIF, @mjo, vs STB, @vik, vs ODD) he becomes one of the best picks if you are using your wildcard, with two goals, one assist and three bonus points in his last four matches. He is currently the highest-scoring midfielder in the game so far along with Velde but Vidar Jónsson (Sandefjord – 5.4M – 22.4% owned) is also a good enough pick to cover SAN fixtures with two goals, two assists and two bonus points in his last four matches.


📌 Some good midfielders that did not make the list were Johan Hove (Stromsgodset IF – 8.1M – 7.7%) because his team has a blank fixture and they have not looked well in the last few weeks. Zlatko Trpic (Viking – 9.6M – 4.3%) also misses out. Despite being on fire, his team has just lost Berisha to an injury, which is awful news for them. However, he could be a massive differential, but he is expensive and the fixtures are not too good, facing RBK, MOL and BG in their next 4 matches.

Eliteserien Fantasy Forward Picks


Dino Islamovic (Rosenborg BK – 10.5M – 11%)


⏱️ Appearances: 12 (978 mins)

⚽ Goals: 3

🎯 Assists: 2

🅱️ Bonus Points: 5


The Swedish striker is probably the best RBK attacking asset since Zachariassen departure. His fixtures are kind (ODD-vik-TIL-s08-MJO-kbk) so he becomes a very good choice for our wildcard. He is in hot form as well, with three goals and five bonus points in his last four matches.


Thomas Lehne Olsen (Lillestrøm SK – 9.5M – 37% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 16 (1303 mins)

⚽ Goals: 13

🎯 Assists: 1

🅱️ Bonus Points: 19


The LSK striker is just essential at this stage of the season. He has been one of the most consistent players in the league, out of 16 matches played, he has only blanked in 4 of them. He is also a bonus point magnet, getting 3 bonus points in 7 different fixtures. The last straw is LSK’s fixtures (@fkh, @mjo, vs BRA, @odd, vs TIL, @s08, vsKBK), which makes him one of the best assets in the game.


Erik Botheim (Bodø/Glimt – 10.2M – 29.2% owned)


⏱️ Appearances: 15 (1200 mins)

⚽ Goals: 9

🅱️ Bonus Points: 8


Botheim has been one of the biggest surprises of the season. After the departures of Junker, Zinckernagel and Hauge, the board made an amazing job finding proper replacements. Unlike Olsen, I do not think Erik is an essential asset because you can easily cover BG with the likes of Saltnes, Berg (cheap and on penalty duty) or Pellegrino (a new signing that might be a must-have player once he is nailed). The Norwegian striker has never scored more than one goal in a single match this season, but he has scored one goal in nine different matches, which shows his consistency.


📌 A fantastic asset that did not make the list was Ohi Omoijuanfo (FK Molde – 12.3M – 43.7%) because he has been unavailable these last few games due to personal reasons and it looks like he will leave Molde in some weeks so when using a wildcard, I do not think we should buy him until is future is decided. However, if he stays, we must get him back as soon as possible because he is arguably the best player in the league with 18 goals, 1 assist and 19 bonus points in 15 matches.


❗ To finish this wildcard guide off let’s have a look at some cheap assets in case we need some funds:

  • Sander Kartum (MID – Kristiansund BK – 0.8% owned – 5.8M)
  • Mats Hakeenstad (DEF – Sandefjord – 0.6% owned – 4.4M)
  • Nilsen Tangen (MID – Viking FK – 3.2% owned – 4.6M)
  • Martin Ovenstad (MID – Mjondalen – 8.3% – 5.1M)
  • Moses Ebiye (FOR – Tromso IL – 25.5% owned – 5.5M)
  • Eskil Edh (DEF – Lillestrom SK – 2.5% owned – 4.1M)

Fantasy Eliteserien: Gameweek 15 Preview

Magnus Wolf Eikrem might’ve not had the best start to the season but is starting to display some of his old form and is one of the top picks in Jacob Silkstone’s Fantasy Eliteserien preview for gameweek 15.

How Did Our GW14 Picks Do?

The previous gameweek was strung out over a fortnight, but patience was eventually rewarded with a glut of points in the final round of matches. Between them, our suggested team of the week contributed 138 points, which would have been considerably more if captain Thomas Lehne Olsen hadn’t rattled the woodwork three times. The only flop was Sarpsborg captain Joachim Thomassen, who received a yellow card and a suspension in the opening game of the double round. Thomassen also happened to be the only one of my recommendations that I transferred into my team this week, a factor that may or may not have contributed to his worst fantasy performance of the season so far.


On the Move

With the transfer window wide open, the Norwegian league’s mass summer defenestration is well underway. Fredrik Aursnes was still in over 36% of teams by the end of GW14, but he’s now a Feyenoord player. Kristoffer Zachariassen and Mushaga Bakenga currently have the fourth and fifth-highest points totals in the game, but will spend the rest of the season in Hungary and Japan, respectively. Vålerenga have sold arguably their two best players in goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson and playmaker Aron Dønnum. Time is up for the man who celebrated his goals by brandishing a hand-drawn ‘Rolex’, even though he’s still owned by one in six Fantasy Eliteserien teams. Ohi Omoijuanfo, the most selected player in the game, is also on his way out of Molde, but the good news (for everyone apart from opposition defences) is that he’ll be staying until the end of the season.

Of course, the window’s also open for new arrivals. Stabæk handed debuts to four new signings in their GW14 game at home to Sarpsborg and already look like a much-improved side, and some huge swings in form are likely to happen over the next few weeks. We’ll assess some of the new arrivals ahead of GW16, but for now, it seems sensible to sit back and see how they settle in.


Transfer Strategies

If you haven’t yet played your first wildcard, GW15 is your last chance. It also happens to be a good time for a wildcard: GW15 is cup qualification week, and the current template is full of players from midtable teams. Bodø/Glimt and Molde are the best teams in the league, with Rosenborg a fairly distant third, and you’ll have a chance to stock up on their key players while the teams around you are scrambling to cover them with free transfers.

A word of warning, though… Bodø and Rosenborg are all still involved in European football, while Molde played 120 minutes against Trabzonspor before going out on penalties. The league line-ups for all three teams could well be affected by some heavy rotation. Molde also have a blank coming up in GW16, so loading up on their players right now isn’t as obvious a strategy as it initially appears.


Fantasy Eliteserien GW15 Picks

Sarpsborg are playing like relegation candidates at the moment. Although Strømsgodset don’t have the most inspiring away record, it’s worth a punt on their keeper Viljar Myhra for just 4.5 million. Myhra has the fifth-highest points total among the Eliteserien keepers so far this season, but at a considerably lower price than the four ahead of him.

Brann are also playing like relegation candidates, and the local papers have been full of stories about the players cavorting around the pitch in their underwear at 5 o’clock in the morning. Without going into too much detail about what else they were up to, it’s safe to say they haven’t had the smoothest preparation for a crucial relegation six-pointer against Sandefjord. Meanwhile, Sandefjord have been in decent form, and cult hero Brice Wembangomo (4.6M) offers a chance of fantasy points at both ends of the pitch.

Rosenborg played their European game a couple of days earlier than either Bodø or Molde, so in theory their players should be at less risk of rotation. Swedish full-back Adam Andersson (5.8M) is the pick of their defensive options, with two assists in his previous league game.

Following a long summer break, Vålerenga return to action against one of the league’s weakest attacks. Tromsø have barely averaged a goal a game, and are yet to win at home. With popular fantasy pick Christian Borchgrevink suspended, we turn to Jonatan Tollås Nation (5.9M) for his set-piece threat and bonus point potential.

Our first midfield pick is the most in-form player in the game. Stabæk’s season has been transformed by a managerial change and some smart acquisitions in the transfer window, and Oliver Edvardsen (7.1M) looks impossible to ignore at the moment. If you’re thinking longer term, it’s worth noting that Stabæk have a blank in GW19 followed by a double in GW20.

If Stabæk are to slip up this week, Torgil Gjertsen (7.9M) will likely be involved for hosts Kristiansund. Two goals and an assist, plus five bonus points, in his last four games are an indication of a player beginning to hit top form.

As he returns to face his previous club, Brann, Vidar Ari Jónsson (still only 5.3M) is our Sandefjord midfielder of choice. He has four goals and an assist from his last six games.

We’ve kept some money in the bank for Magnus Wolff Eikrem (12.4M) as Molde face a Viking side who are likely to be without their star player. When fit, Eikrem is arguably the best player in the league, and he could be a key differential for anyone looking to climb the ranks this week. It’s worth a reminder, though, that all of Molde’s key men are rotation risks and Eikrem probably doesn’t represent great value for money in the long run.

The same caveat applies to Ohi Omoijuanfo (now up to 12.3M), but the league’s top scorer is in red-hot form and will be a hugely popular captain choice for this gameweek. He was subbed with a few minutes left to play in the crucial European game against Trabzonspor (as was Eikrem), which looks promising for his chances of starting again on Sunday.

We’re also backing Thomas Lehne Olsen (9.4M) to continue his good form, even with a tough fixture against defending champions Bodø/Glimt. Bodø haven’t kept a clean sheet since GW7, and might be resting a few key players between European games. If Lillestrøm can score, there’s every chance Lehne Olsen will be involved again.

Strømsgodset’s Fred Friday (8.4M) completes a trio of in-form strikers, and could be a good outside bet for the captaincy if there are concerns over Ohi’s rotation risk.

Eliteserien Fantasy Team of the Week for Gameweek 15


You can find Fantasy Eliteserien resources for the 21/22 season here.

Fantasy Eliteserien: Gameweek 14 Preview

We’re not all going on a summer holiday: over the next couple of weeks in the Norwegian top division and Fantasy Eliteserien, some of the big guns (this is the Norwegian league, so “big guns” is relative) get an extended break while a group of midtable teams play twice. The result is a confusing mix of blank gameweeks, single gameweeks and double gameweeks.

The summer transfer window adds an extra layer of difficulty, as the annual ritual of Eliteserien’s star players queuing up to force a move to sunnier climes begins. Here are a few tips on navigating one of the toughest periods of the Eliteserien fantasy season.

Single, Double or Blank?

First, it’s worth an at-a-glance guide to how many times each team will be playing:

Double Gameweek: Haugesund, Lillestrøm, Mjøndalen, Sandefjord, Sarpsborg, Stabæk

Single Gameweek: Kristiansund, Molde, Odd, Strømsgodset, Tromsø, Viking

Blank Gameweek: Bodø/Glimt, Brann, Rosenborg, Vålerenga

Of the single gameweek teams, league leaders Molde (at home to Haugesund) and European challengers Odd (at home to Sandefjord) shouldn’t be ignored.


Eliteserien Fantasy Goalkeepers to Watch

Egil Selvik (Haugesund, 5.3M) has the second-highest points total while sitting in under 10% of teams at the time of writing, and has recovered from the eye injury that saw him miss out against Vålerenga the last gameweek. Second-choice keeper Frank Stople (just 4.0M) was briefly looking like a must-own for the double gameweek, but now he’s almost certain to be back on the bench again.

Instead, the best option this week is perhaps Sosha Makani (Mjøndalen, 5.0M). Mjøndalen managed to lose a clean sheet to the final kick of the game not once but twice in the last round. Having one of the best defensive records in the league hasn’t yet translated into many fantasy points, but Makani already has a penalty save and is an excellent shot-stopper.

Sandefjord’s Jacob Storevik (4.9M, owned by 12%) is a solid option. Sandefjord’s home record is promising (three clean sheets in the last four) and a game against Lillestrøm offers some hope of another shutout.

Kristiansund’s Sean McDermott (5.5M) is probably the best keeper in Eliteserien, and by far the most popular fantasy pick, but a tricky away game against Viking is unlikely to bring many points this round.


Fantasy Eliteserien Defenders to Watch

The top two picks in the game, Borchgrevink and Bjørkan, both blank in GW14, meaning there’s a good opportunity to clamber up the overall rankings with a few DGW differentials.

Lillestrøm’s marauding Lars Ranger (4.5M) has scored in two of the last three games and picked up a couple of bonus points, although it’s worth noting that he’s just one yellow card away from suspension. Centre-back Igoh Ogbu (4.7M) is a nailed-on alternative from the same defence.

Sandefjord also have a great prospect at wing-back: Brice Wembangomo sets you back just 4.5M and is only in 4% of teams right now. Martin Kreuzriegler (4.4M) is an even cheaper option from the same team.

Haugesund’s attack-minded Mikkel Desler (6.2M) was a popular pick for the doubles, before jumping on the first available flight to Toulouse. Alexander Stølås has struggled with injury over the last couple of seasons but is one of the best defenders in Eliteserien and perhaps worth a punt at 6.3M in Desler’s absence.

Looking at the other double gameweek teams, Sarpsborg captain Joachim Thomassen (5.6M) and Mjøndalen’s Sondre Solholm Johansen (5.0M) both stand out. Stabæk have the worst defence in the league and are probably best avoided.


Eliteserien Fantasy Midfielders to Watch

Let’s start with a quick raid on the bargain basement: the double gameweek teams provide some great value in midfield. Kristoffer Normann Hansen (Sandefjord, 6.0M) is the most widely-owned DGW pick and returned from a short-term injury with an assist in the last round. His teammate Vidar Ari Jónsson (5.2M) has similar stats, but much lower ownership. Don’t expect that to last too long…

Stabæk’s sixteen-year-old superstar Antonio Nusa (4.7M) is one of the most exciting players in the league at the moment, inviting comparisons to Martin Ødegaard (in the sense that he’ll tear up the Eliteserien as a teenager, rather than have an underwhelming loan spell at Arsenal). Oliver Edvardsen (7.0M) is a more experienced (and more expensive) option to cash in on two relatively good fixtures for Stabæk.

The leading mid-priced options are Haugesund’s Kristoffer Velde (8.7M) and Lillestrøm’s Gjermund Åsen (8.1M). Both are more likely to provide assists and bonus points than goals. Sarpsborg’s Nicolai Næss is in some teams as a cheap enabler (4.4M), but has a grand total of zero attacking returns so far this season.


Fantasy Eliteserien Forwards to Watch

First up, it’s worth noting that the three most popular picks in the game all have decent home fixtures. Even though none of them has a double, neglecting Ohi Omoijuanfo (Molde, 12.2M), Mushaga Bakenga (Odd, 9.9M) or Veton Berisha (Viking, 10.5M) could backfire.

Ohi seems the best pick of the three. Bakenga stretched a hamstring while scoring a penalty in GW13: he’s an injury doubt for the next round, and he’s also pushing for a move away from Odd. Berisha is up against a reasonably tight defence and Viking haven’t won any of their last four.

Of the forwards with a double gameweek, Lillestrøm’s Thomas Lehne Olsen (9.2M) stands out. He’s only blanked in four of his eleven games this season and has more bonus points than anyone in the game except Ohi and Bakenga. Expect him to be the most popular captain choice for the active teams this round.

If you’re looking for a differential, Haugesund’s Ibrahima Wadji (7.9M) seems to be hitting form and is owned by under 5%.
