It’s impossible to build a balanced Indian Super League (ISL) Fantasy team without adding budget options across categories. Players with a lower budget not only enable managers to make room for the premium picks but also step in for them in case the big players miss matches.

Some of the budget picks in ISL Fantasy could even outperform the premium picks, so ISL Fantasy managers should pay careful attention when selecting these types of players.

With that, here’s a look at the best bargain busy in ISL Fantasy.

Samik Mitra - 4 crore

Mitra established himself as Chennaiyin FC’s first-choice goalkeeper during the second half of the 2022-23 season. If he could keep his place between the sticks, he could be the cheapest playing keeper in ISL fantasy.

Hector Yuste - 4.5 crore

Yuste is marginally priced compared to his teammates. He could be the cheapest route into Mohun Bagan SG’s defence, who kept the joint-highest number of clean sheets last season.

Aakash Sangwan - 5 crore

Sangwan impressed in his debut ISL season for Chennaiyin FC in the previous campaign, recording five assists, more than any other defender. With his attacking potential, he can offer you points at both ends of the pitch.

Aaren D'Silva - 5.5 crore

Dsilva impressed for Hyderabad FC in the Durand Cup 2023, finishing as their top scorer. All his goals came in a single game with the Goan forward netting a hat trick. If he can continue keeping his place in the starting eleven, he could be a shrewd pick for your side.

Parthib Gogoi - 6 crore

An attacking midfielder who can chip in with both goals and assists, Gogoi could be a smart buy. With NorthEast United FC head coach Juan Pedro Benali in favour of attacking football, Gogoi could thrive under the Spaniard.

Wilmar Jordan - 6.5 crore

Set to don the colours of Punjab FC for the upcoming season, Gil is one of the cheapest overseas forwards in the game. The Colombian will be keen to carry on from where he left off, having finished as NEUFC’s top scorer despite joining the team in the January transfer window.

Naorem Mahesh - 7.5 crore

Mahesh had a coming-of-age campaign for East Bengal FC last season, contributing both goals and assists. He continues to be one of the creative outlets for the Red & Golds and will be keen to build on his performances from last season.

Daniel Chima Chukwu - 7 crore

Priced at a modest price, Chima is one of the standout options in the 7Cr and lower price bracket. With Petar Sliskovic ruled out of the season owing to injury, Chima will be expected to step up and bang on the goals.
