The best premium forwards for the FPL restart

Our position-by-position analysis of Fantasy Premier League assets reaches its conclusion as we profile premium forwards.

We’re looking at strikers costing more than £8.0m in this article, with nine ‘active’ players falling into this category.

All of those attackers will get a mention below.

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

Aubameyang signs off for Gameweek 28 in style as Everton's front two excel
  • Price: £11.1m
  • Ownership: 28.2%
  • Next four Gameweeks: mci + bha | sou | NOR | wol

Arsenal’s fixtures are good enough around the Double Gameweek to consider their players more than just one-week purchases.

Form might be completely redundant now but Brighton and Hove Albion have gained fewer points than any Premier League team this calendar year and are the only top-flight side who are winless in 2020.

Southampton, who the Gunners then face at St Mary’s, have the worst home record in the division in 2019/20, while Norwich City, Arsenal’s Gameweek 32+ opponents, are the league’s worst travellers.

Those investing in Mikel Arteta’s troops for the medium term can perhaps just look upon their Wednesday night match at Manchester City as a bonus, then, given what’s to follow.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) is by some distance the most-bought Arsenal player of Gameweek 30+.

The Gabon international is one of five players who have started every match in which they have been available since Mikel Arteta took charge in Gameweek 19, only missing out in Gameweeks 23 and 24 due to suspension.

He hasn’t been substituted in any of those eight starts, either.

Aubameyang has six goals to his name in that period, a total that only two forwards can better.

This is despite the Gabonese attacker being deployed on the left wing, too, although that is a bit of a fallacy given that whoever is playing left-back for the Gunners tends to push up and provide the natural width, leaving Aubameyang free to drift infield.

First in line for penalties, Aubameyang doesn’t need too many chances to be among the scorers: his goal conversion rate of 26.2% is the second-best of the forwards featured in this piece.

Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) is the more maverick route into the Arsenal attack, with game-time far from assured: Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m), for example, started the Gunners’ three previous league games up front.

Three attacking returns for the Frenchman across two substitute appearances in Gameweeks 26 and 29 does illustrate that he is capable of doing damage even when benched, however.

SERGIO AGUERO

What's the best strategy for choosing forwards in FPL? 7
  • Price: £11.8m
  • Ownership: 20.3%
  • Next four Gameweeks: ARS + BUR | che | LIV | sou

Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) is top of many FPL managers’ shopping lists ahead of Wednesday’s deadline, with only Jack Grealish (£6.4m) attracting more transfers in.

On course to crack the 20-goal mark for the sixth season running, it doesn’t take a genius to explain his appeal for Double Gameweek 30+ at the very least.

Game-time has been the main downside to Aguero, with seven benchings being handed to him in the 24 matches he has been available for.

On only eight occasions in 2019/20 has he lasted 90 minutes.

However, one would suspect that the Argentina international would get 90 minutes at the very least over City’s two Double Gameweek 30+ matches combined, even if he is only a substitute in one of them.

And that is perhaps crucial: when we filter FPL assets using our new ‘per 90’ tool, Aguero is towards the top of the pile.

The City striker averages 0.99 goals per 90 minutes this season, which beats every other forward in this article by quite some distance.

Indeed, it’s a City one-two between Aguero and Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) for shots in the box, big chances, efforts on target and penalty box touches when we apply the ‘per 90’ filter to premium forwards.

The Brazilian himself is an intriguing differential for this opening double-header, given that he will surely be handed a decent amount of pitch-time across the two fixtures against Arsenal and Burnley.

Jesus averages 0.63 goals per 90 minutes this season, the same as Aubameyang, and boasts a better rate of assists per 90 minutes (0.31) than the eight other strikers in this piece.

RAUL JIMENEZ

  • Price: £8.1m
  • Ownership: 31.5%
  • Next four fixtures: whu | BOU | avl | ARS

Wolverhampton Wanderers are perhaps the pick of the ‘single Gameweek’ clubs over the next three match rounds, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side about to face three of the bottom five.

West Ham United, Bournemouth and Aston Villa have just one clean sheet between them in 2020 and are the three clubs who have conceded the highest number of Premier League goals this calendar year.

The ever-present Raul Jimenez (£8.1m) has been the safest route into the Wolves attack both this season and last, with 28 of his 29 appearances in 2019/20 coming from the start.

On penalties and a permanent fixture whether Santo adopts a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2, the Mexican is a player we don’t have to be overly worried about, minutes-wise, on a week-to-week basis – unlike Adama Traore (£5.7m), for example.

Jimenez’s all-round appeal particularly catches the eye.

Not only has he had more attempts on goal and shots in the box than any other FPL forward this season, he has also created more big chances than any of his positional rivals.

That dual threat was borne out in his numbers last season, when he hit double figures for goals and assists – a trick he may well repeat in 2019/20.

If there’s one criticism, it’s that he isn’t particularly clinical.

His shot accuracy (the percentage of shots that land on target) is the worst of the nine forwards in this piece, while only one premium striker – see below – has a worst goal conversion rate.

Still, we can probably expect plenty of chances to come his way in the next three Gameweeks given the calibre of opposition, which could offset that wastefulness.

MARCUS RASHFORD

  • Price: £8.8m
  • Ownership: 12.0%
  • Next four fixtures: tot | SHU | bha | BOU

Aguero is the only FPL forward who has been transferred in by more Fantasy managers than Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) ahead of Double Gameweek 30+, despite the fact that the Manchester United striker hasn’t kicked a ball since January.

It’s easy to see why he’s a popular purchase, though.

Manchester United’s fixture schedule for the run-in is among the most attractive in the division, with the Red Devils facing six teams who are currently in the bottom half of the table.

Even the Gameweek 30+ clash with Spurs isn’t completely off-putting, given that the Lilywhites have only recorded three clean sheets in the 17 matches that Jose Mourinho has overseen.

The prospect of Rashford hooking up with Bruno Fernandes (£8.6m) for the first time is a tantalising one, too, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can now even add Paul Pogba (£8.3m) to that chance production line.

Rashford’s underlying stats are very competitive this season, especially considering he plays the bulk of his games drifting in from the left flank.

We discussed just how much penalty-taking duties affects those numbers, however, in a recent piece on the England forward.

Given that Fernandes may now have the upper hand from 12 yards, that is one route to points that could be blocked off – although Fantasy assists could instead be in the offing, given that he won four of the five penalties he has converted this season.

You can read up on Rashford in much more detail in our stand-alone piece on the fit-again forward below:

ALSO CONSIDER

Vardy and Barnes back with a bang as Pérez misses out on Villa rout

It’d be remiss of us not to mention the Premier League’s leading goalscorer.

Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) has scored on 19 occasions in 25 appearances and ended a three-month barren spell with a brace in Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa in Gameweek 29.

With paternity leave and two injuries checking his progress this calendar year, his popularity has taken a bit of a hit.

He is on course to make a net loss of transfers in Gameweek 30+, too, with Aguero and Aubameyang in demand ahead of City and Arsenal’s double-headers.

It’s easy to forget just how superb he was in the first half of the campaign, though.

In Gameweeks 7-18 alone, Vardy scored 14 goals and set up a further four.

A player who has cultivated a reputation as something of a giant-slayer over the years has actually transformed into a flat-track bully under Brendan Rodgers, with 20 of his 25 attacking returns arriving against teams now in the bottom half.

No other FPL asset can match Vardy for that stat.

It’s a particularly pertinent achievement as Leicester’s next four matches are, you guessed it, against teams currently in the bottom half.

Security of starts is presumably another string to his bow, too, given that he lasted 90 minutes in Leicester’s first 19 matches of the campaign when all was well with his gluteus and calf muscles.

Rodgers’ cautionary words near Christmas might be worth bearing in mind, however.

Not a particularly trigger-happy striker (he has had 40 fewer shots than Jimenez this season), Vardy’s off-the-ball movement nevertheless guides him to high-quality opportunities: no FPL forward has had more ‘big chances’ this season.

His goal conversion rate is also head and shoulders above the other eight strikers in this article.

It’s peculiar to think that the number nine of the free-scoring champions-elect is arguably one of the weakest picks of the strikers featured in this piece.

Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) has many positive attributes and his intelligent, often selfless work as the spearhead of the Liverpool front three has been integral to the Reds’ success.

That doesn’t always translate into FPL points, however.

The ever-present Brazilian has fewer of those than five other Liverpool assets in 2019/20 and Lacazette is the only forward in this article who has scored fewer goals; even then, the Frenchman is only one strike behind Firmino having played over 1,000 fewer minutes.

His underlying stats are actually very decent for someone we perhaps think of as more of a link-up man than an out-and-out forward: Jimenez is the only one of our nine featured strikers who has registered more shots in the box this season, for example.

Actually putting the ball in the net has been a problem, though, and Firmino’s goal conversion rate is the worst of any forward in this article.

Indeed, he has never managed to crack the 20% mark for this statistic in any of his five seasons at Anfield.

Always liable to supply a goal, Firmino does at least have more assists to his name than any other FPL forward this season.

Harry Kane - An FPL Must Own Over Christmas

Last but not least, Harry Kane (£10.8m) will return from injury in Gameweek 30+ and perhaps re-enter the premium forward equation.

The first in line for penalties in north London, Kane is a near-sure starter providing he is back up to full match fitness – something that may be all-the-more important with so many games to fulfil in such a short space of time.

Spurs have got some decent fixtures, too, with West Ham United, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth to look forward to.

The availability of the cheaper Son Heung-min (£9.7m), who is statistically superior to Kane in many departments in the Jose Mourinho era, does perhaps dent his appeal, however.

Son averages 6.5 points per match under the Special One, with Kane down at 5.2.

Given that we’ve produced stand-alone pieces on both these Spurs players, we won’t repeat much of what we’ve said and instead guide you to those articles via the links below:

    Why everyone is picking Mount? Yes, they have game against Aston Villa but do we expect him to start?

    1. Mattias
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I had him in a first draft, but for that exact reason I've switched. Could still switch back if it looks like he's starting. Chelsea fans?

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Why wouldn't we? Lampards pet

    3. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Good player, cheap, Lampard loves him, played more mins than any other Chelsea mid. Is versatile and can slide into centre mid or left wing.

    4. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Scoutcast made mention of a suspension (I think) for one of his team mates that makes him more likely to start. Can’t remember the name of the player though sorry.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Jorginho

        1. maglia rosa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          That’s the guy

      2. Klaren
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Must be Jorginho

    5. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Lot of risk around a lot of players, Mount plays imo

    6. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I would assume Mount to be a likely starter

  2. Mattias
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on this bench boostable crowd?

    Leno, Hendo,
    TAA, Laporta, Alonso, Egan, O'Connoll
    Grealish, McGinn, KDB, Pepe, Bruno
    Aguero, Jota, Nketiah

    1. PortoGuy
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Going without Auba allows for great overall balance, I give you that. Looks solid to me.

  3. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Any triple City owners worried about what Pep has just said in his presser 🙂

    "The players are training good but I don’t know the physical condition. I think we are ready to play one game but three days after another one, and four days after another? We are not ready. That’s why you have to rotate and use all the players."

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Continuing where you left off?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Lol, well...

    2. Mattias
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Pep warning of rotation probably means zero rotation!

    3. Klaren
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Nothing that we didn’t know but because of this I’m planning to captain Sterling as he is probably the player which fitness concern least applies to based on Pep’s commrnts a few months ago.

    4. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      When is there ever a City game without that threat? If you don't want to worry about rotation pack your squad with Burnley, Sheff U, Wolves etc...

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Or just avoid City. If anything I would go Sane over KDB now.

        Just my few cents worth but I am still Cityless and will continue to be.

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 days ago

          I was tempted to say that takes courage but its just borderline crazy going without City assets on a DGW playing at home (even if home is no longer "home" anymore)

        2. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          No City? Good luck with that. 🙂

    5. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      No. Did people actually think they weren't going to rotate?

    6. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I heard a rumour when Pep was young, his mum left him on a merry-go-around for 3 hours. That explains a lot. 😉

    G2G for Bench Boost?

    Henderson, Leno
    TAA, Laporte, Egan, Lundstram, Lascelles

    Aguero (C), Auba, Jimenez

    1. Fit_to_drop

      Its decent. Lundy would worry me personaly. Id prefer to forego upside for certainty of starts.

    2. AC/DC AFC

    Hendo, Leno
    TAA, Laporte, Egan, Saiss, Lascelles,
    KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Mount, Saka

    Maybe Lascelles to Targett?

    1. Coast94
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Maybe C Taylor over Targett? Villa are poor defensively and have tough games after the DGW.

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Burnley are playing City away for this week.

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Looks really good. Targett for Lascelles a decent shout. Low-scoring game possible tomorrow, and he offers something going forward.

  7. Srv210

    Afternoon everyone, interested to know peoples thoughts as to whether it's foolish when only having BB and FH left chip-wise to be considering not using either for this coming gameweek?

    With unlimited transfers being an unexpected gift, I'm wondering if it would it be wiser to use those to build a solid team for the rest of the campaign (well, as solid as can be guessed at with no form to go on), as opposed to making zero use of the of the unlimited transfers by free hitting for the sake of one small DGW, or using the unlimited transfers to build a great BB DGW team but then being left with a bit of mess to sort out thereafter?

    Not sure exactly what I'd do with the FH and BB after this coming gameweek, but am in a h2h cash league so could be used against rivals in that I suppose.

    As an example I'd really like Son for the run-in, realise it's not the optimum gw to be bringing him in but with 4/5 transfers required to fit him in, using this gift of unlimited transfers doesn't seem too bad an option

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Using your FH this GW if you do not like your current team and do not have a WC available is crazy. If I still had my FH I would leave it till the very last GW.

      1. Peter Haddock
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Thank you, aye that was my thinking really - I don't hate my team but a few of these free transfers would make it pretty decent for the run in but at the probable expense of being competitive this GW

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 days ago

          I have changed my team completely to set up for the rest of the GW's and playing my BB. Have no other chips left. Also not overendulged on DGW players. No City either. Going to roll with it.

    2. El Tel
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Think it's best to try find a balance between attacking the doubles but setting up for future weeks. I'm already planning on Sterling to Son next week

      1. Peter Haddock
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Cheers Tel, it's that balance I'm struggling with I suppose. Love your avatar by the way, best badge ever!

    Couple of quick questions for BB30

    1) Go for 3 SHU defenders or 2def + 1mid
    2) Sarr, Barnes or Mount for 1 gw punt
    3A) TAA + Mahrez + Doherty
    3B) PVA + Sterling + Boly

    1. Mattias
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      1) GK & 2 Def for me. A lot of people prefer not to go all in of defence though, so you'll see a few Flecks.
      2) Mount
      3A

    2. El Tel
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      1)I would stick with 2 defenders, but get a 3rd defender if you prefer.
      2) Mount for 1gw

    Wolves dilemma. A or B?

    A) Doherty/Jota
    B) Saiss/Jimi

    I like the explosiveness of A...

      Coin flip. A if you prefer upside. Second 2 are steadier.

    My team has come down to one final choice (I hope), any help you could give me would be hugely appreciated as this decision is really hurting my head! I'll most likely be BB and WC in 31

    Henderson x
    Boly Egan O'Connell TAA Lascelles
    Mane KDB Grealish Luiz x
    Aguero DCL x

    A) McCarthy, Sterling Jota
    B) Leno, Mount, Auba

      FYI I have a lot of value tied up in DCL and want him for the rest of the season.

      B for me

        Thanks a lot mate, really do appreciate it

      B but personally i'd also take out Mane for Sterling too and upgrade you Sheff Utd defenders of Egan & O'Connell > Stevens & Lundstram?

      1. FPL_DON
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I'm keen to keep Mane as have him at 12m and I'm already losing quite a bit of team value already. It's hard to imagine a scenario where I wouldn't want Pool coverage after this GW.

        Also, agree if I can get the funds the Sheff full backs are a great shout.

    Which duo scores more in GW30?
    A) Mount, Saiss
    B) El Ghazi, Stevens/Lund

    If B: Stevens or Lund (have Egan)

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      A

    2. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      B with Stevens but try fit in the Lord over Egan if you can?

      1. HD7
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Actually I can and no more money available. Do you think its good to trust Sheffield so much? 🙂

        1. Krafty Werks
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          I'd go for it, can see at least one cleanie? Many inc me are?!!

    Targett (SHU, CHE) or Saiss (whu) just for this week?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      The concensus seems to be behind Targett on this one

    2. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Gone Targett purely because of the double but it's close.

  19. Fit_to_drop
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Run the rule over this predictable and boring line up.

    BB deployed.

    WC next week.

    Hendo Leno
    TAA Baldock Targett Doherty Laporte
    KDB Fleck Sarr Saka Grealish
    Aguero Jimi Auba

    I’ve decided to go for 3 Sheffield defenders on a free hit. Which are the best 3? Currently on-

    Lundstrom, Stevens and O’Connell

    1. Krafty Werks
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Lundstram, Stevens, Hendo (if poss?)...if not then the O'C

    What's happened to Fleck? Was all the rage earlier in the week but absent from most teams now. Anything I should be aware of?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I still have him. I dont see the point in picking 3 sheffield defenders. OK keeper might get save points if no CS. But 1 GK, 1 Def, 1 Mid seems a better spreading of risk to me.

    2. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      People are tripling up coz there aren't enough decent budget defenders out there, outside Sheffield, wolves, who'd you get? I just have targett due to his price

    FH options:

    Leno
    XXX Egan Stevens
    KDB XXX Grealish Pepe
    Auba Aguero XXX

    1: Sterling, Samatta, (a, Lundstram. or b, Doherty)
    2: Mahrez, Tammy, TAA

    Sterling more likely to play both games than Mahrez and Samatta not rotation risk....

    1a is all DGWs
