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:

      Thanks both, indecisive result, I guess there’s not much in it

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

        FWIW, for me, it hinges on Barnes - I think his subbed off stats are quite high.

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          That’s correct but Perez is not fully fit I think, so that makes Barnes more nailed and with 5 subs most midfielders and strikers are more likely to be subbed off now really

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Just to complicate it more, I would say Barnes and Saiss. Great form before the break

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Barnes and Sais could work, both are the cheaper options

  3. Miguel Sanchez

    Salah or Mane vs Everton?

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

      Coin toss, Salah on pens might swing it his way.

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Mané

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Fancy Mané personally.

    4. Bielsa's Bucket
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Mane. Have a feeling Salah will be taken off early (or before Mane) should the game be wrapped up.

    Is anyone considering Jesus over Kun?

    1. PlayPercentage
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Yes. He'll get game time.
      Probably keeps himself fitter than Aguero, too.

    2. tm370
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I don't see the pay off. They will surely split minutes but Aguero is far more dangerous.

      Not instead of Kun but maybe instead of Sterling. I love an attacking double-up. Suarez and Sturridge was so much fun. Aguero and Tevez too. Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse was ... an unfortunate error.

    6. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Yeah.

      Fully expect Kun to start Arsenal, he's started all games vs the "Top 6" teams when fit, with Jesus near certain to be subbed on. I think Pep will want to have as many of his players getting minutes / match fitness as possible, so predicting Jesus to start the second game.

      120 minutes or so would make me very happy and he's a nice little punt, but don't get me wrong - I'd rather have Aguero.

  6. tm370
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I have all my chips left, so will BB this week and wildcard next. Looking at this atm – going in big for the doubles.

    Leno, Henderson,
    Lundstream, Baldock, Trent, Doherty, Femenia,
    Mahrez, Grealish, KDB, Cantwell, El Ghazi,
    Aguero, Aubemeyang, Samatta,

    No money left.

    Leno / Henderson

    Trent / Egan / Targett / Laporte / Lascelles

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      About twice as good!

        Or twice as bad 😉

    2. tm370

      Defence twice as bad, attack twice as good. For one week.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        I’ve gone double Villa defence, so I guess that’s quadruple as bad 😛

      Can you get Stevens over Baldock - O'Connell to Egan if you need 0.1

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Sadly not, this is exact cash and got O'Connell in my actual team at 4.6 so nothing to be saved there.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          This is so close to my team. I just have Leno and Stevens over Henderson and Samatta.

          1. SHOOTER MCGINN
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            I had Leno all along but thought I'd go all out for the SHU triple. Although Leno would help me fund Stevens instead of Baldock... Just not sure about that Arsenal defence

    Spent the last week deliberating whether I should use Unlimited Transfers and BB or go back to this team by using a FH. Seems a bit against the grain so would really appreciate some helpful advice on my current team pre moves...(brackets include how much is lose on players if I got them back in)
    Pope, Stek
    TAA (0.3m), Saiss (0.1m), Egan, Lascelles, C.Taylor
    Salah (0.3m), KDB (0.5m), Fernandes (0.1m), Son, Cantwell
    Jimi, Rashford, DCL (0.3m)

    I've got 0.2m itb and WC, FH, BB left to play

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      For me that's a great team to come back to so I'd FH that this week easily.

      1. wonkeydonkey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Cheers for the advice mate. Deploying a FH means I can stock up on the high priced assets but concerned about being stuck with a BB later in the season. Reckon there will be a chance still to play it?

    TAA, Laporte, Stevens, Lund, Lascelles,
    KDB, Bruno, Grealish, El Ghazi, Saka

    Can you help me decide?

    A) Sterling + Bruno
    B) Mahrez + Mane/Salah

    Leaning towards A

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

      B

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

      A

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Close call. B

    4. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      B

    5. jim0wheel
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      A

      Bruno is almost guaranteed a pen in that game with Aurier playing.

    Anyone else not using bench boost this GW, who still has it left? I am considering keeping mine for later, when we have a little bit more information on teams etc. Max of 12 DGW players so would only miss out on one place.(GK)

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

      I might just use it next week and hope for a 0-0 between Burnley and Watford.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Assuming you can assemble a strong squad next time.

      It's a golden opportunity to use it and move on with your chosen 13 or 14 afterwards.

  16. The Mighty Whites
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on BB team?

    Leno - Ramsdale

    TAA - O'Connell - Egan - Targett - Hanley

    Sterling - KDB - Grealish - El Ghazi - Fleck

    Aguero - Aubameyang - Jimenez

  17. Bruno Bruno!!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    PEP "We are ready to play one game, but three days after another and four days after another... we are not ready.

    We have to rotate and use all the players. The players are in naturally good physical condition."

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Russian roulette time!

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      At least it's the same for all teams now, so in a way City assets are relatively safer than before.

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Brilliant, doesn't matter who you pick......

  18. Rushford
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    GW 30+ only
    A) Auba + Cantwell + Targett + Basham
    B) Rashford + McGinn + PvA + Lundstram

  19. Mufc202020
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 16 days ago

    which 4 would you pick! Tried compared each players but it’s a 2-2 draw!!!

    A) Stevens, Sterling, Saka, Tammy
    B) O’Connell, Fernandes, Mount, Jesus

    Auba + Aguero already in team!!

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

      Probably A

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        A for me too. Then cap Bruno in 31!

        1. Mufc202020
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Bruno is in B???

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      B just...

  20. The Legend Squad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Good to go? FH team.

    Henderson
    Luiz Lundstram Egan
    Sterling KDB Pepe Grealish Mount
    Aguero Auba

    3.9 3.9 3.9 4.2 (unused fodder)

    1. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Too much Arsenal for my taste but looks decent if you fancy them to do well.

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

    Saka or Cantwell for GW30?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Saka

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

      I’ve gone with Cantwell between the two. We don’t know which Norwich and more importantly which Southampton defence will turn up so if it’s anything like their earlier season form, he could have a good chance of attacking returns.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Are Southampton quite tight on the road?

        If home support is eroded this should be more so.

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

        I'm currently on Saka based on his performances in the last 6 GW'a (4 assists to zero). Added to which the dgw ofcourse

  22. In a Rush
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    For bench boost
    A. Mendy targett Pépé cantwell mcburnie
    B. Laporte O’Connell Bruno Traore Nketiah

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Prefer B

      1. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Cheers mate leaning that way

  23. Sike
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 16 days ago

    I am liking the look of Duda.
    I am BB this week and I have McCarthy as my sub keeper which is putting me off getting him.

    So Saka or Duda or what 4.7?

    Long term pick.

  24. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    What are your thoughts on Laporte for this week? Do you think he’ll get 180 minutes?

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

      180 after barely playing all season and getting injured within a matter of games last time he came back? I'd be hoping for two starts and getting subbed at 60 each time with a CS, could easily be one of the halftime subs otherwise. I expect him to be wrapped in cotton wool until the CL.

    2. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Not 100% hence best to go Ederson and pick a 4.5-5.0 defender instead of which there are a fair few to chose from this GW.

  25. inactive
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Guardiola says that he has "no complaints" about his side's injury situation but that his squad "are not ready" to play a number of games in quick succession and that he "will have to rotate".

    If you aren't Aguero (C), I honestly think it's better to go for Jesus or someone else, and spread the funds throughout the team (especially on bench boost!) to get the likes of Doherty, Jimenez, Abraham etc.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Doesn't he always say this though?

      1. inactive
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        5 sub rule and nothing to play for.

    2. Sike
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      I don’t understand the second bit?

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      It does not matter...

      He says all players will be used..... It's anyone's guess, nothing has changed.

  26. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Best option for GW30+ on FH?

    A) Leno, O'Connell, TAA, Martial & Jimenez

    B) Hendo, Stevens/Lundy, Doherty, Martial & Jimenez

    C) Hendo, O'Connell/Lundy, TAA, Sarr/Mount & Rashford

    Have Egan too. Can get triple SHU def with option B or C only.
    Cheers! 🙂

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      B with Stevens

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

    A) Leno and Baldock
    B) Henderson and Samatta

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      B

  28. LJP
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    I’ll have Aguero and KDB , but looking at a 3rd Man C attacker ....for this week only is sterling upside potential worth the punt over Mahrez +£3.2m with rotation expected from Pep

    A) Yes
    B)No

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

      B

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

      Sterling has fewer points in more minutes than Mahrez this season. Not worth the extra £3m IMO

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Agree.

        But I'm always wrong on Sterling so hattrick incoming!

  29. joelsprylar
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Have no wildcard but all the other chips.
    Cant decide if i should just free hit or use free transfers and bench boost.
    What would you do with this team?

    Henderson, Pope

    Trent, Doherty, Lascelles, Chilwell, Stephens

    KDB, Salah, Martial, Traore, Hayden

    Auba, Jimenez, Ings

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

      I would probably FH as that's a good template to return to next week. Although I'm biased as that's what I am doing.

      1. joelsprylar
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks, this is a almost impossible decision imo.

  30. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Final bb team.....

    Leno
    Doherty Azpi TAA
    Saka Mount Kdb DSilva
    Aguero Auba Jimenez

    Henderson El Ghazi Egan O'Connell

    1. tm370
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Really don't like DSilva - seems a waste. Saka is very dodgy too, and I don't really understand Azpi. Rest is solid!
