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:

        Was just thinking that as I pressed post! It then comes down to:

        A) Mount & Targett
        B) Barnes & Saiss?

  8. Steve The Spud

          Then swap Lundstram for another more nailed Sheff Utd defender & you’ve got Barnes or Mount

  11. Keep Calm and Play On
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    Alright gents, stuck between BB and FH, have my WC. Lots of value in two players (TAA .4, Bruno .3) so they are staying if on BB.

    Current draft:
    Hendo, Leno
    TAA, Lund, Egan, Boly, Lacelles
    KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Mount, Saka
    Aguero, Auba, Jimenez

    1M ITB to tweak...any glaring changes you guys would recommend? Lund may be another Shef def and Saka could be upgraded as well.

    Cheers

    1. Wolves Ay We

      Sterling instead of Bruno, surely you can find a way to bring Bruno back.

        I'm sure I could but Bruno to Sterling would need a few changes and not sure who I would take out...probably have to be TAA

      I prefer B (with Jimenez)

      However I think there could be a better combo than ElGhazi and Barnes

    Welcome back everyone to FFS
    This is my BB team with 9 DGW players - and changes if I'm keeping this team for a couple of GWs
    (WC in 31+ still and option)

    Leno / Ederson
    Lundstram / Egan / Lascelles / Boly / TAA
    De Bruyne / Grealish / Fleck / Fernandes / Cantwell
    Auba / Aguero / Jimenez

    I still have FH and WC to play.
    Current plan is FH or 1FT in 31+/32+ with WC in 33+

      Think that's one of the best i've seen tbh

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        thanks, I was thinking Saka instead of Cantwell but his gametime might be limited.

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      try to get taregtt instead of boly will play 2 matches and on set-pieces i think better than boly or lascelles
      don't like cantwell get saka if you're looking for budget midfielder

      1. Pulp Minion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        Thanks, Targett and Saka are options

    Those with Aubameyang, will you keep him for GW31+ for a while with his good fixtures?

    Is anyone keen on DCL from GW31+ onwards?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      think you have to give him those fixtures. more likely to stick with him than aguero.

      and yes.

    2. Pegboy
      • 9 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      I probably won't keep him on wildcard. Think I'm leaning Kane, Rashford, Jimi.

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Will keep

      Auba is a strange one. You cannot go with stats apart from the final result (GOALS)
      He is probably worth exactly what you can expect with output. In fact, home or away he is the same. He has produced good numbers for 5 years now including oversees.
      The one factor that disturbs me is I will never trust him as a captain because his ceiling is too low. Hence, Kun, Kane, Salah, Mane, KDB are preferable to most. At 11.7 you have to be willing to captain him or stay away.

      1. Cricket_Badger
        • 7 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        Lots of very good points. Thanks, all.

      2. jamiejoe
        • 4 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        Presumably you could CV him if you have at least one of those other 5 points potential, captain players in too.

    5. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Yes and yes.

  16. Pegboy
    • 9 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    a) Leno + Mahrez + H. Barnes
    b) Ederson + Pepe + Cantwell

    1. Pegboy

      Just for this gameweek

    Guardiola saying players won't be ready to play twice in 3 days. Guess we knew there would be huge rotation for city.

    does this put people off them to some extent, or does this just mean the players you choose are likely to get one plum fixture still.

    1. 6ix9ine #1 on billboard
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Most city attackers are well capable of double digits hauls in one game.

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        yeah that's my thinking. If city had a single gw with either of the fixtures i'd be tempted to go big.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Will still stick to three attackers

  18. 6ix9ine #1 on billboard
    • 3 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    Mount or Harvey Barnes??

    1. olidooley
      • 7 Years

      That’s the question

    2. what's my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Mount imo

    3. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      I prefer Barnes but Chelsea have an easier away fixture.

  19. Stoichkov#8
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    Who you think is better pick?

    a) Mings
    b) Targett

      Targett

    Hi folks - as some of you will have seen, we've launched a new end-of-season FPL mini-league, with scoring starting from GW30+.

    We usually give out £300-worth of Amazon vouchers in our leagues and cups but this time we're donating the cash equivalent to the NHS.

    In lieu of that, we're instead giving away annual memberships to the top five managers in our 'FFScout Charity Shield' mini-league, the code of which is available via the link below.

    If you have already signed up to be a member for 2020/21, don't worry - we'll refund your payment if you finish in the top five.

    You can also donate money to the NHS via our JustGiving page (details in the article) if you so wish.

    finding myself being tempted to go with Nketiah over Auba....any one else doing it?

    1. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Which upgrade this gives for you?

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        McCarthy > Henderson (Leno other GK)
        Saiss > Doherty
        Cantwell > Mount
        DCL > Jiminez

    2. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      I'm doing it, but it's basicly Salah over Auba and Nketiah as Arsenal attack "cover".

  22. KUNingas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    For this week only

    A) Mahrez + Vardy
    B) McGinn + Auba
    C) Sterling + Nketiah

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      B) ElGhazi Auba

    6. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Between B and C. I'd go C but there's not much in it.

    7. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      C

    8. Mufc202020
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      C- can’t see the point in having 2 villa players or more (assuming you already have grealish)

  23. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    Is Jesus a better value pick over Sterling?
    Jesus seems to still get points off the bench when he comes on for Aguero.
    Do we still think Sterling outscores Jesus over the next 2?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      depends if sterling has found some form. he was playing horribly after the first few GW.

    2. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Not necessarily, no one knows but huncing on a Sterling hattrick.

      I'm with Aguero, KdB and Mahrez myself.

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        hunching a Sterling hatrick and you have Mahrez?

        1. jamiejoe
          • 4 Years
          20 days, 22 hours ago

          Everyone else is going for Sterling.

          I can't fit him into my budget and prefer the other 3.

    3. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      No
      Mahrez over Sterling or
      Jesus over Aguero

    4. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      With Jesus and Kun you are getting 90 minutes between 2 but high scoring.
      So will you value with Sterling? He plays more than Jesus but been poor this year. He will share time with Sane, Mahrez, Bilva, and to a certain extent Mendy but there are 2 positions in his class. A slight advantage over Jesus but he costs that bit more.

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        yeah altho I probably havnt got the bottle looking back there have been plenty of points for Jesus when Aguero started and if Jesus started at Burnley too would be a decent move.

        1. Mufc202020
          20 days, 21 hours ago

          The more I think about it the more tempted I am to starts aguero and Jesus over aguero and sterling. Would be happy when I see his name on that team sheet against Burnley

          1. Tinkermania
            20 days, 21 hours ago

            I have gone for Sterling and Jesus and happy for it. Not expecting Kun to have more minutes than Jesus.

  24. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 10 Years

    Hey guys
    Pretty set on my BB team, but holding WC so need a decent 31 team too..

    Which option is better
    Base:
    Henderson Leno
    Lundstram TAA Egan Lascelles
    Grealish KDB Barnes
    Aguero Nketiah

    A. Saiss Mahrez Mane Jota (Aguero or Mahrez to Rashford or Fernandez in 31)
    B. Targett Sterling Ozil Jimenez (Sterling to Mane 31)
    C. Doherty Mahrez Pepe Jimenez (no idea in 31)

    1. what's my name

    2. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

    1. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      9 using BB

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      11 but I've also kept the core of my original team intact as they are mainly budget options.

    3. Kloppage Time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      stev

    2. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      I've heard many say here that Stevens a bit more attacking than Baldock so they have gone with the former.

    Thoughts on this? Thinking about how to make the most of unlimited free transfers for DGW* and BB.

    CURRENT TEAM
    Pope
    TAA - Robbo - Saiss
    Salah - KDB* - Maddison - Fernandes
    Vardy - Jiminez - Nketiah*
    (Martin - Taylor - Lascelles - Hayden)

    GW30: Martin/Robbo/Hayden > Reina*/Baldock*/McGinn* (0.4ITB, use bench boost)
    GW31: Reina downgrade, McGinn/Nketiah upgrade

  29. wolves_simmo

    BB 31 team GTG?

    Hendo / Leno
    TAA / Doherty / Wan-Bissaka / Lundstram / Egan
    KDB / Mahrez / Grealish / Mount / Barnes
    Nketiah / Aguero / Jimenez

    32:
    Out: Aguero & Mahrez / In: Rashford & Salah

    1. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      Do you mean BB30?

      Good side. First one I've seen with AWB in it!

      1. wolves_simmo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        Yeah got my weeks mixed up. BB30 & GW31 transfers.

  30. The Mighty Whites
    • 5 Years
    20 days, 22 hours ago

    McGinn or Saka?

    1. Kloppage Time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      McGinn for minutes

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        20 days, 22 hours ago

        Not sold on McGinns minutes either tbh

    2. Cricket_Badger
      • 7 Years
      20 days, 22 hours ago

      McGinn will play more than Saka IMO. Any returns from AVL probably more likely to come from him than an Arsenal return coming from Saka.
