The best budget FPL forwards to consider in the coming Gameweeks

Following on from Sam’s article that predominantly focused on premium forwards, one of the world’s best FPL managers, Tom Freeman, looks at the cut-price options available in attack.


In recent times, Fantasy managers have been able to call upon a large pool of reliable, kindly priced forwards.

Whilst back in 2017/18, only two forwards priced £7.0m or below at the start of the campaign reached double figures for goals, last season, we were treated to 12.

Raúl Jiménez (£7.7m) was the standout candidate. Starting at £5.5m and ending at £6.9m, the Wolverhampton Wanderers forward returned 181 points in his debut season, with 13 goals and ten assists.

The likes of Salomón Rondón, Callum Wilson (£7.4m) and Ayoze Pérez (£6.2m) also offered huge value in the category.

This season, Danny Ings (£7.0m), Tammy Abraham (£7.7m), Dominic-Calvert-Lewin (£6.1m), Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) and Chris Wood (£6.3m) are already into double figures.

Next in line to join them is Neal Maupay (£5.8m), with seven.

The issue for Maupay owners is his last goal arrived in mid-December. I think it’s fair to say he’s been a huge disappointment since, returning just 18 FPL points, which is why I’m looking to move him on ahead of Gameweek 27.

So, with a budget of £6.8m, which could potentially rise to £7.4m if I were to bring forward my planned Gameweek 28 transfer of Jack Grealish (£6.7m) to Harvey Barnes (£6.0m), I’m looking to recruit a new forward.

To identify potential signings, I’ve plugged in my ‘Hitman’ custom table, which focuses on a selection of stats I like to look at when searching for goalscorers.

In this particular example, I’ve included the top ten, using data from the last four Gameweeks:

The idea behind using stats to begin my search is to filter players, and as a result focus on a smaller, more manageable group who I can then run the eye test over.

Having factored in, amongst other things, fixtures, forthcoming blanks (I need someone who plays Gameweek 28), rotation issues and player profiles, I’ve removed Pukki, Troy Deeney (£6.3m), Wilson, Gabriel Martinelli (£4.6m), Oliver McBurnie (£5.7m) and Christian Benteke (£5.7m) from my search, leaving three forwards to consider.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Above: Everton’s Gameweek 27-31 fixtures.

Having flagged up Everton and Calvert-Lewin on New Year’s Eve, they continue to impress.

Only Liverpool have bettered their points tally since Carlo Ancelotti was appointed, whilst Calvert-Lewin’s underlying numbers during that run are superb – he sits top for big chances, shots in the box, shots on target and xG amongst all players.

With no other Premier League team crossing as often as the Toffees in recent weeks, the 22-year-old’s ability to threaten in the air is being put to good use, and I like the fact he stays central, challenging for every ball.

I think he has the potential to continue doing well (the fixtures aren’t as bad as they seem on first glance), but part of me feels like l may have missed the boat with this one, although I’m certainly not ruling him out.

Chris Wood

Above: Burnley’s fixtures in Gameweeks 27-31

Whilst I have reservations about Burnley going forward, and their ability to create chances from open play, Wood has had a good season so far, finding the net ten times.

He’s also getting plenty of big chances – only Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) has more.

Another positive is his ability to score from set plays, which is relevant with Newcastle up in Gameweek 28 – the Magpies have conceded more attempts from dead-ball situations than any other club this season.

Despite this, no team has recorded fewer shots on target than the Clarets this season.

I’m not ruling Wood out, and I like the fact he definitely has a fixture going ahead in Gameweek 31, but at this stage, I think others are ahead of him.

Diogo Jota

Above: Wolves’ fixtures in Gameweeks 27-31

I do love it when a good attacking player turns up on one of my tables who maybe hasn’t shown up on the scoresheet recently.

Diego Jota (£6.1m) ticks that box, but it’s a move that comes with risk – is he even nailed for a start with Pedro Neto (£5.0m) and new signing Daniel Podence (£5.5m) competing for a spot?

Back in the fold following injury, I do like Jota but it does feel like I’d be replacing Maupay with another player who hasn’t scored since December, with rotation hanging over him. There is also an argument to say if you want a Wolves forward, find the extra from somewhere and invest in Jiménez.

The good thing is that I can run the eye test over Jota on Friday before making a call. If he can get anywhere near to his level of performance in the corresponding fixture from last season, where he netted a hat-trick, he could yet become an option, but let’s see.

So, I’m keeping my options open ahead of Gameweek 27, but as it stands, a forward transfer is definitely on the cards with Calvert-Lewin, Wood and Jota all under consideration.

However, with seven games still to be played in Gameweek 26, maybe another option will emerge?

Though Gameweek 27 seems a long way off right now, here’s how I’m currently set up…

    Who scores more:

    A) Fleck (BHA)
    B) Saint Maximin (cpa)

    1. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Both likely get 2.

    2. Eric Banternaaa
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Fleck.

  2. Andy_Social

    You've got a Lord-sized problem there. If he's dropped as per, I don't fancy either of your sub defenders.

    1. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      They're both midfielders...

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I'm referring to AVFC's article.

    2. avfc82

      • Has Moderation Rights

      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Yeah, Lundstram needs to be move on, but I'm not sure its worth a hit considering I can do it for free further down the line.

  3. Don Van Vliet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Fleck is due.

    1. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Arthur Fleck? 😛

    2. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      That concept is bunk

  4. Eric Banternaaa
    • 6 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    What’s everyone’s chip plans?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      FH 31 - unless Pool beat Chelsea in the Cup

      BB - whenever I have a full playing bench

      TC/WC2 played already

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Going to decide after GW28 FA Cup ties and draw have been made, we will know a lot more about who has DGW's then. I'm currently thinking either.

      FH31, WC33, BB34 or FH24, WC35/36, BB37. I've played my TC.

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        FH34, not 24

    3. Penang Sandman
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      TC WC already wasted.

      FH on the DGW37
      BB DGW34

    4. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Would rather not fH 31 with the fixtures on offer. So BB and FH the best 2 doubles is most preferable to me.

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        questionable if there will be any good doubles to use FH. GW34 could easily be a normal GW with the weekend postponements moved to midweek, making GW37 the big DGW but that will be full of rotation. Any other DGW will probably only feature a couple teams. Time will tell.

    5. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I’m waiting on actionable information. 🙂

  5. FPL Zlatan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Nice article, I would try to find some extra cash to upgrade Maupay to Jiménez.

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Thanks mate, yeah Jimenez is an option. If I were to downgrade Mahrez to Barnes, rather than losing Grealish, then it's doable.

  6. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    I currently have a cut price front line of Ings, Wood and DCL and 4.6m ITB, is it worth upgrading any of those to Jimenez, Vardy or Firmino (if I downgrade VVD) either this GW or for GW28 ? The plan was DCL to Vardy for GW28, but I'm having second thoughts.

    Pope (Button)
    TAA, VVD, Stephens (Soy, Rico)
    Salah, KDB, Son, Traore (Dendo)
    Ings, DCL, Wood

    1ft, 4.6m ITB

  7. Eric Banternaaa
    • 6 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Lund Rico Stephens Williams
    Mane Salah Son Cantwell Dendoncer
    Aguero Ings Abraham

    2FT 0ITB

    The bench isn’t very strong with Lund, Williams & Dendoncer all been dropped the last GW.

    What would you prioritise? Thinking Tammy > Jimi but 0.1 short.

    1. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Lund to Lescelles? Would give you enough cash to make the Tammy switch another week, although I don’t think there will be much in it between Tammy and Jimi over the next few

  8. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Firmino Boly or Jimenez Van Dijk?

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Jimenez,VVD for me.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Jim and VD

  9. The 12th Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Good article AV.
    I’m probably holding Calvert Lewin through these fixtures. Think he can score against anyone. Only Liverpool game puts me off. Can bench him for that though.
    I’ll be doing Deeney >> Jimenez this week giving me DCL,Ings,Jimenez.

    Instead of breaking that front line up to get Vardy in I’ll be looking at Digne > Periera or Grealish > Barnes.

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Nice moves, I'd definitely hold Calvert-Lewin if I owned him.

  10. FOO FIGHTER
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Had the Abraham boat sailed or does anyone expect him to come out firing?

    1. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Looked lively last game, I think he’s a good option now he’s fully fit again

  11. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Morning dzzz, what improvements would you make to this team with 2FT and 1.8m

    Ryan
    TAA • Robbo • Lundy -- Aurier (che) Rico
    Salah • Kdb • Grealish • Martial
    Vardy • Ings • DCL

    The only one i can think of is DCL >> Jimmy. even though DCL has served me really well last 4 gw's.

  12. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
    • 3 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Henderson McCarthy
    TAA VVD Stevens Lascelles Taylor
    Salah KDB Richarlison Grealish Hayden
    Auba Jimenez Ings

    Got 2FTs but will probably burn it as I see nothing pressing at all. Maybe Steven's to Egan just to save some cash..

    GW26 > Stevens to Egan
    GW27 > Grealish and Auba to Son and DCL
    GW28 > Hayden to Traore

    Can field a solid 11 for GW28.

    1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      How does my plan look?

    2. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      What's your plan for 31...Seems like.you maybe be missing s few

      1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        Probably FH, although I'm holding off. Depends if Liverpool get through.

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 days, 13 hours ago

          As per my post below I don't feel GW31 offers enough for a FH. Hence if you don't FH and Liverpool beat Chelsea you have 4 players likely to play

          1. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
            • 3 Years
            12 days, 13 hours ago

            I’d probably be happy with 4-5 players playing.

            Hoping Liverpool get knocked out which will make my decision a hell of a lot easier.

    3. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Looks good at this stage

  13. n14mul

    Morning,

    Wanted to jump a few weeks ahead and look at gw31.

    The 2 games deffinantly on are:
    Wolves vs bournmouth
    Burnley vs Watford

    Most likely to be also played
    Norwich vs Everton

    Any other games odds on to be played? I suppose West Brom bearing Newcastle is the only big one.

    Seems like a very small gw unless Chelsea beat Liverpool as most people are hoping for...

    In essence not sure FH31 is worth it imo

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      I’m hoping West Brom beat Newcastle. That would give me 2 more for 31.
      Chelsea to beat Liverpool. 3 more.

      Holding on to DCL and Son . Either will have a blank.
      Adding Wolves players between now and 31. So might get 7-9 out depending on results.

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        Seems like good plan. I think alot hinges on Chelsea vs Liverpool.

        I would be content with 5 or 6 with no liverpool

  14. FOO FIGHTER
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Wood actually seems like a good option at this point considering his price.

  15. FOO FIGHTER
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Have Auba and have an awful feeling he is going to blank.

    1. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have him and he never scores when I do. Feel like if I held him all season Arsenal would get relegated

    Morning, Evening to some of you

    My original plan was to move DCL > Jimenez. Stick with this or concentrate on moving the players I have missing in GW 28 (currently have 5).

    Hendo
    VVD-TAA-Lund
    Salah-KDB-Grealish-Redmond
    Vardy-Ings-DCL

    4m-Fleck-Rico-Soy

    A) DCL > Jimenez
    B) Lund >Doherty/Boly
    C) Lund > Lascelles/Fernandes
    D) Grealish > Barnes. (Would do this in Gw 28)

    1. Stram Dunk

        Not only that though, we are stuck with below par articles. Many of them plainly states the obvious.

        By far the best article (if we can call it that)
        Is the Hot Topic ‘The Gameweek Review’

    Ryan Button
    TAA VVD Lascelles Lundstram Williams
    Salah KDB Cantwell Son Traoré
    DCL Ings Jiménez

    What would you do with 1FT and 2.7ITB?

    1. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      you could roll this week and see if lundstram starts but long term he's a rotation risk.

      Lund > Wolves. I'm tempted by the more expensive Doherty but the cheaper boly is an option.

      1. Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Henderson
    TAA VVD Dunk
    Salah(c) KDB Grealish Traore
    Vardy Ings DCL

    McGovern Lundstram Soyuncu Dendoncker

    1 FT, 3.9 ITB

    Plan has always bee:

    DCL >> Jimenez

    (due to the fixture swing and Vardys getting good from GW28)

    If I use my FT on that, is anything else worth a -4 hit this week??

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 7 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Don't dump Dcl 🙂

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        Who for Jimenez then? Because Vardys fixtures get very nice and hoping he gets back in the goals...

        If I did DCL >> Jimenez I could do Grealish >> Richarlison for GW28...

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Its a good move imo.
      Jimenez has the better fixtures.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah I suppose it’s who makes for him DCL or Vardy

        Hard to ignore Vardy fixtures from GW28

    3. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      I think it's quite a good move. I'd do it if I had the spare cash.

  20. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
    • 7 Years

    Is Aguero to Jimenez popular transfer for next gw?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Its a tricky move.
      Aguero could be rested against West Ham or score a hatty which will make selling him look stupid.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Kun plays Hammers this GW

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years

      I’m going Aguero to Calvert-Lewin and will free up 6 million to get Son in...

        No chance! Mane gets 75 vs Norwich

          True but logical

        As a non owner Id like this, but he is already in full training so Id be surprised if he doesnt start.

      Yep I'll be getting rid of bobby and bringing in mane gw 28. Hopefully he can stay quiet until then

      Avoid. Potential 1 pt. cameo risk is too high imho.

    Early thoughts on this lot?

    Henderson
    TAA - VVD - Stevens
    Salah - KDB - Grealish - Traore
    Aguero - Jimenez - Ings

    (McCarthy - O'Connell - Mooy - Stephens)
    2 FT & 0.0m

    A) Aguero ➡️ Vardy
    B) VVD & KDB ➡️ Boly & Mane
    C) VVD, Grealish & Aguero ➡️ Boly, Mane & Wood (-4)
    D) Anything else?

    Grealish will go for Barnes in GW28 if I dont sell him this week.
    The one I keep out of Aguero or KDB for GW27 will most likely be sold for either Vardy or Son in GW28.

    Cheers! 🙂

    Hey! Whats the best move here you reckon? Consdiering : 1FT 1.8ITB

    A) Dendo > Traore
    B) Lund/Soy > Stephens
    C) Smth else?

    Ryan
    TAA, Robbo, Lund, Lascelles
    Salah, KDB, Martial, Maddison,
    Vardy, Ings

    Button, Dendoncker, Greenwood, Soy

      My view:
      4
      8 6 4 2
      9 8 6 5
      5 9
      0 1 2 3

      Out of 10

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Decent enough I guess. What would you give Traore or Stephens?

          Obviously the numbers above are related to the balance of your side. Having Ryan on his own and his team out of form has a negative impact. Blanks impact too.
          Traore great 9 imo in form, plays 28 and good team
          Stephens good choice, inexpensive form team good fixtures no blanks atm

    Listen you Premier League players - now that some of you have almost had your Winter break, come back and make sure you put in some good shifts and give us those FPL hauls. 😀

    Don’t want to waste a transfer on getting rid of Kiko. He might get his place back next few weeks. Watfords defence been dodgy since he’s been out mind.

      When he is fit he will be starting fwiw

    Hey guys, 1 FT and 4m ITB.

    Should I take a hit to improve my defence or roll with this in GW27 and hope Lundy does something or Williams starts for Utd? Am planning to do KDB > Mane ahead of Pool's home game against West Ham.

    Guaita
    TAA / Webster / Lund
    Salah / Grealish / KDB / Traore
    Vardy / Jimi / Ings

    Button / Williams / Cantwell / Holgate

    The most awkward thing I did for FPL until now was watching the arrival of West Ham team bus to the stadium to see Payet was in the bus or not. Now, I just found myself looking at the weather forecasts of Southampton and Norwich for Saturday. I don't know which one is worse..

      What’s the forecasts looking like?? Getting worse or better

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        not getting better, still 45-50 kmh wind with 80-90kmh gusts.

    A) Aguero > Firmino
    B) Aguero > Jimenez
    C) Aguero + Lucas Moura > Jimenez + Mane (-4pts)

      A might work if you want the ability to rotate in/out a premium striker (e.g., Aguero).

    Update on weather in Norwich for Saturday afternoon,it’s getting worse.
    LOL at all us Liverpool owning x 3 & captaining, taking the p*#s out of the City owners x 3 & captaining.
    Karmas a bitch 😉

      Winter break sucks.

      The weather for the city game, if it went ahead - was glorious, no cloud in the sky and sun was shining.

      Calling the game off was a big mistake.

      I think the game will go ahead.

    2. Whats the Huth

      Furthermore. The starting 11 for the City game might be rice with rotation.

      Hoping the disruptions allow a green arrow! think they will call it off quite early if they are going 2
