Fantasy football has become a hugely popular game for football fans. Year after year, millions of participants pick a selection of players who they think will do well in the upcoming campaign.

Here is a look at some of the cheaper players that should definitely be considered when picking your dream team, with all prices based on the Daily Mail's fantasy football game.

Hugo Lloris (£5.4m)

Hugo Lloris is one of the easiest picks of the bunch. He is one of the best goalkeepers in Europe and, at £5.4million, is cheaper than Joe Hart, Petr Cech, David De Gea and Wojciech Szczesny.

On top of this he has a solid back line in front of him, particularly in central defence.

Lloris will earn multiple clean sheets at Spurs this year, making him a definite selection.

Luke Shaw (£4.1m)

Shaw is an absolute steal at £4.1million. He is an exciting left-back who loves to get forward.

Shaw will be a regular fixture in the Southampton team this year, and is more than capable of bagging a few goals along the way for extra points.

Dejan Lovren (£3.8m)

Lovren joined Southampton in the summer for nearly £10million after proving his worth at former club Lyon.

He is a big solid centre-back who will also grab a few goals. At £3.8m the Croatian is an absolute bargain, and a must have for dream team players.

Ryan Shawcross (£5.1m)

Shawcross has been a fantastic player for Stoke in his time at the Britannia Stadium.

He is a no-nonsense defender who enjoys a tackle as much as others enjoy scoring a goal. At £5.1m he is a lot cheaper than the likes of Vincent Kompany and Jan Vertonghen, yet ability wise it is quite difficult to see why.

Playing in a team that is predominantly built for the physical challenge of the Premier League, Shawcross should be a certain consideration if looking for a goal-scoring centre-back.

Victor Wanyama (£4.5m)

Wanyama is the third Southampton player on this list and the second of their new boys. At only £4.5m, Wanyama is a certainty to be included.

The Kenyan is a big rugged midfielder who is capable of both attacking and defending.

He will play his part in a very solid Southampton team this year, and could easily prove to be a very wise selection.

Emanuele Giaccherini (£5.0m)

Giaccherini joined Sunderland earlier this summer after impressing for Italy in the Confederations Cup.

At 28, the midfielder is playing the best football of his career and could prove to be one of the signings of the season. His dribbling ability and willingness to get forward should make him a certain consideration for all players this year.

Wilfried Bony (£6.6m)

Bony is another new man who should be considered when building your dream team. Not long ago he scored twice on his debut for his new team Swansea, showing he knows where the goal is.

Bony will get great support from players behind him that are capable of opening up even the best of defences.

One he is through on goal he is simply deadly, and it will be no surprise to see him high up the scoring charts, possibly even higher than Michu last year, in the upcoming campaign.

Romelu Lukaku (£9.1m)

Lukaku definitely made the most of his loan spell at West Brom last term and was probably the Baggies' best player over the course of the season.

The ability he has shown is sure to gain him an opportunity at Chelsea this year, and many are expecting him to live up to the hype that has surrounded him from an early age.

With Torres still far from his best, and Demba Ba maybe not being a top quality goalscorer, the Belgian could quite easily become the number one striker at Chelsea.
