Vote for the best FPL forwards of 2019/20

We’re inviting you to vote on your favourite Fantasy forwards of 2019/20 as we continue to build our Team of the Season.

We previously asked for your opinion on the stand-out goalkeepers, defenders and midfielders of the season just gone, with those polls remaining open on the sidebar.

Now we run down the nominees in attack, with overall score, points per match and value all factors that entered our thinking.

While midfielders took home gold, silver and bronze in terms of Fantasy Premier League points, four FPL forwards did make the top ten.

There was plenty of value in the £6.0m-£9.0m bracket, too, which aided moves for the more expensive options in defence and midfield.

2018/19 TEAM OF THE SEASON REVIEW – FORWARDS

Aguero asking the question of non-owners as De Bruyne ticks over
  • Goalkeeper: Alisson
  • Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Matt Doherty
  • Midfielders: Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling, Ryan Fraser, Eden Hazard
  • Forwards: Raúl Jiménez, Sergio Aguero

Both of the forwards who made our Team of the Season in 2018/19 are again in the running this time, so we won’t delve too much into their campaigns here.

Suffice to say, the pair had contrasting seasons.

Raul Jimenez bettered his superb debut year as a budget striker, starting 37 of Wolves’ 38 games and finishing only six points off the magic 200-mark.

Sergio Aguero‘s season was littered by injuries, however, with the Argentinean making just 18 starts and six substitute appearances.

Despite that, he finished 2019/20 just one goal and one assist behind Jimenez.

2019/20 CANDIDATES

JAMIE VARDY

The Golden Boot winner and the highest-scoring Fantasy forward of 2019/20, Jamie Vardy plundered 30 attacking returns and 34 bonus points in the season just gone.

The Leicester City forward – whose starting price was a relative bargain £9.0m – was within one point of matching his highest-ever FPL score, too, which was set in the Foxes’ title-winning year of 2015/16.

His overall score was made all the more noteworthy considering that there were nine blanks and three no-shows from Gameweeks 19 to 32+, with a loss of fitness and form plaguing the second half of the campaign.

Four goals from Gameweeks 33+ to 35+ saw him over the line for the Golden Boot but most of the damage was done in the first half of the season.

From Gameweeks 3 to 18, Vardy found the back of the net on 17 occasions and set up a further five goals – a purple patch that conjured up memories of Luis Suarez’s astonishing 2013/14 campaign.

The long-serving striker averaged 8.6 points per match over this run of games, delivering six double-digit hauls and blanking on just three occasions.

From Gameweeks 9 to 18, he didn’t blank once.

A whopping 23 of his 30 attacking returns came against bottom-half clubs, which made him a relatively safe bet for the captaincy in plum fixtures.

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

Matching his goal tally (22) and his FPL points total (205) from 2018/19, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang again did what he does best – score a hatful of goals without the fanfare or sky-high ownership levels of the premium midfielders.

Perhaps a positional reclassification next season will change the perception of the Gabon international, whose role on the left of Arsenal’s attack was no barrier to him finding the back of the net.

It’s because of his ‘inside-forward’ role under Mikel Arteta that he may be repackaged as an FPL midfielder in 2020/21 and, providing that he stays in the Premier League, his popularity may soar as a result.

Had the Fantasy position change happened in the summer of 2019, then he would have finished the season just gone as the third-highest-scoring FPL asset, ahead of Sadio Mane and Vardy.

Failing to start only one match that he was available for, Aubameyang never went more than three Gameweeks without a return.

Avoiding a blank in the opening seven Gameweeks, the Arsenal forward went on to rack up six double-digit hauls – all of them against bottom-half teams.

DANNY INGS

Danny Ings more than doubled his Premier League goals tally in one fell swoop in 2019/20, finding the back of the net on 22 occasions in a superb campaign for the Southampton striker.

Ings was only one goal away from a share of the Golden Boot, with his missed penalty in Gameweek 37+ proving costly.

The ex-Liverpool forward had started the season at a bargain £6.0m in FPL and even dropped in price in the opening two months, having been benched in half of Southampton’s first six fixtures.

His strike against Spurs in Gameweek 7 kickstarted his campaign and opened the floodgates, with another 12 goals arriving in the following 15 Gameweeks.

Owned by little more than 100,000 Fantasy managers ahead of that meeting with the Lilywhites, Ings finished the season in around 2.4 million squads and had risen in price by £1.6m – by some distance the biggest beginning-to-end price change in the game.

No other forward or indeed midfielder provided better value based on FPL’s points-per-million metric (26.7).

There were only three double-digit hauls over the course of the season but his consistency of returns more than made up for it, along with his league-best bonus points tally of 40.

MARCUS RASHFORD

Jamie Vardy (6.0) was the only FPL forward who averaged more points per match than Marcus Rashford (5.7) in the season just gone.

The Manchester United attacker smashed his previous personal best in FPL by almost 50 points in 2019/20, registering 17 goals, eight assists and 31 bonus points in 31 Premier League appearances.

Most of this came from the left flank, too, and he may be set for reclassification as an FPL midfielder in 2020/21 as a result.

It wasn’t just his returns but the reliability of starts, with Rashford lining up in every single Premier League match bar the seven that he was injured for.

The England international never went more than two appearances without a goal or assist, with five of his run-outs ending with double-digit hauls.

How much a loss (or reduced share) of penalty-taking duties affects him in 2020/21 remains to be seen, with Rashford finding the back of the net on six occasions from the spot last season.

He did win four of the six penalties he converted, however, so would have been given assist points had he not taken the spot-kicks himself.

RAUL JIMENEZ

Raul Jimenez was always going to struggle to emulate his impact in 2018/19, when he racked up 181 points from a starting price of just £5.5m.

While he was never going to offer the same value he provided in his debut Premier League campaign, he did score four more goals and 13 more FPL points this time around.

The Mexican, a bit like Ings, wasn’t too explosive, registering just three double-digit hauls – two of them against Manchester City – over the entirety of 2019/20.

But the points arrived on a regular basis, with his 24 attacking returns coming in 21 different games.

From Gameweeks 8 to 19, he blanked only twice.

Rotation was rarely a worry and no FPL forward started more games or played more minutes than Jimenez last season.

The Mexican started 37 of Wolves’ 38 Premier League fixtures, only being benched in Gameweek 20 when Nuno Espirito Santo’s side faced two matches in the space of 48 hours.

DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s achievements pale in comparison to those of Ings, with the mid-price forwards having both been priced up at £6.0m at the start of the season.

Ten successive blanks in the run-in also left a sour taste in the mouth, with the Everton striker unquestionably one of the biggest Fantasy flops after lockdown ended.

But Calvert-Lewin was a staple of many FPL squads following Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment as Everton manager in December, scoring nine goals and setting up another in the ten Gameweeks following the Italian’s arrival.

Double-digit hauls against Newcastle and Crystal Palace were banked towards the start of 2020, with the Everton striker also bagging a brace against Chelsea under interim boss Duncan Ferguson in December.

Calvert-Lewin’s FPL price had dropped to £5.7m at the point of Marco Silva’s dismissal, so the 23-year-old forward was a real value pick when his form turned for the better.

TAMMY ABRAHAM

The final third of Tammy Abraham‘s campaign was something of a non-event, with the Chelsea striker making only two starts in the final 13 Gameweeks as injury and Olivier Giroud’s form saw him reduced to bit-part player status.

Thirteen goals, five assists and 20 bonus points had arrived from Gameweeks 3 to 25, however, with Abraham starting all but one of Chelsea’s league fixtures over that run.

The first three of those games were Abraham at his best, with the former Swansea City striker registering three successive double-digit hauls against Norwich, Sheffield United and Wolves.

The Blues’ number nine averaged 7.0 points per match from Gameweeks 8 to 15, meanwhile.

Ings (22) was the only FPL forward with a starting price of less than £7.5m who scored more goals than Abraham (15) last season.

SERGIO AGUERO

What's the best strategy for choosing forwards in FPL? 7

A total of 132 points was Sergio Aguero‘s lowest score since 2012/13 but there were mitigating circumstances.

Injuries saw him miss 12 league matches altogether, while Pep Guardiola’s rotation reduced him to just 18 starts.

Although 27 forwards registered more minutes than the Argentinean, only six of them scored more goals.

When we examine attacking returns per 90 minutes, Aguero (1.30) was by some distance the pick of the bunch among FPL strikers.

The long-serving Manchester City hitman started 2019/20 with a bang, playing a part in 11 goals in the first seven Gameweeks and not registering a single blank in the process.

Another purple patch arrived at the beginning of 2020, with six goals scored in the space of three Gameweeks – including a hat-trick against Aston Villa in January.

Positional rival Gabriel Jesus recorded exactly the same number of attacking returns as Aguero last season (22) but had over 500 more minutes of pitch-time.

MASON GREENWOOD

We ummed and ahhed about whether to include Mason Greenwood in this poll, given that almost half of his FPL points came after the June restart.

But 10 goals as a £4.5m forward deserves an honourable mention at the very least, especially as he found the back of the net on more occasions than the likes of Roberto Firmino, Callum Wilson and Diogo Jota.

Many Fantasy managers snapped him up for even less money that that, with his price dipping to £4.3m before his late-season purple patch.

Greenwood averaged 6.7 points per match in the final seven Gameweeks, hitting back-to-back double-digit hauls against Brighton and Bournemouth.

It’s important to acknowledge his contributions earlier in the season, too, even if it was merely appearance points as an emergency FPL substitute: the teenager played some part in 31 of United’s 38 games this season.

NOT QUITE MAKING THE CUT

using-the-top-10000-ownership-to-increase-your-fpl-rank-andys-article 8

Seven goals in Spurs’ final eight Premier League games almost earned Harry Kane a nomination but as we strive for a balance between the heavy hitters and more budget-friendly assets in this poll, the England striker ultimately didn’t make the cut.

Kane averaged fewer points per match (5.4) than fellow premium assets Vardy, Aguero and Aubameyang and finished a distant sixth among FPL forwards in terms of overall score (158).

A total of 18 goals scored was still a commendable achievement given his injury-enforced absence from Gameweeks 22 to 29, however.

Teemu Pukki‘s early-season accomplishments are fondly remembered but they seem like a distant memory now.

Over half of his 14 attacking returns arrived in the first five Gameweeks, with 25 blanks following in his subsequent 31 appearances.

using-the-top-10000-ownership-to-increase-your-fpl-rank-andys-article 7

Chris Wood was perhaps unfortunate to miss out, too.

Fourteen goals from a starting price of £6.5m was excellent but with the cheaper Ings and Calvert-Lewin doing the business and Abraham registering six more attacking returns for a little bit more money, the Kiwi striker was omitted from our final list.

A special mention for Jordan Ayew, too, whose exploits as a budget forward were overshadowed by Greenwood’s late-season returns.

The Palace striker started 37 league games from an initial price of £5.0m, finishing on the same number of FPL points as Aguero – albeit having recorded more than twice as many minutes of pitch-time.

      Will be expensive, leaving you light in midfield where most of the points will be.

      Ings, Ayew and Jimenez would get my vote (all amazing value), but as Ayew isn't an option Vardy get's the 3rd spot.

    Some guy on Reddit worked out it was possible to score 4906 points this season, to do so you would have had to take 628 points worth of hits.
    Who says hits are bad 😀
    The thread is on Reddit r/fantasyPL

      Not really surprising as probably more or less just transferring in the dream team every week. Nothing to do with hits being bad.

        I assume it is after hits have been deducted? Otherwise, yeah, it's completely pointless 🙂

          Yeah, but it's obvious that you are going to gain so many points from getting in the highest scorers every week, the tiny in comparison 4 point hits are going to be pretty much irrelevant.

    I wonder what price Sancho will be if United sign him. Only 2292 minutes last year in the Bundesliga but 34 returns. I wouldn't be surprised if his price is 11 million.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      22 hours, 49 mins ago

      At least 10m. the interesting thing will be if Rashford is set as a midfielder, how will their prices compare, and will people go for the newbie or the known quantity.

      1. Godfrey
        • 1 Year
        22 hours, 40 mins ago

        If Sancho was from a league like Ligue 1 or Liga NOS I would wait, but those numbers in the Bundesliga are insane. 10 million and he is in my team.

          I'm not doubting his talent, but like with Werner, the question is will his new manager utilise him properly, and will his team mates adapt to him quickly. It sometimes takes a few weeks for it all to gel, and with next-to no pre-season, it might take longer.

          1. He should be fine. He moved from not even playing first team football in one league in one country, to being pretty much a nailed starter in another almost immediately. In comparison, the sort of adaptation you describe should happen very quickly.

              To be fair, Bruno hit the ground running, which is encouraging. Then again James started brightly then faded away. But yeh, he should be good. Still likely too expensive for GW1 for me though. I'll stick with Bruno.

                I always like to pick at least one risky player so he might be mine, all depends on price though!

                  A risky player is fun, but I prefer him to be a bench surprise rather than one that blocks a sure-fire hauler. Each to their own!

                    Fair enough, I just get a bit obsessed with getting certain players in. Stupid really because that's what transfers are for - perhaps part of it is wanting to prove I'm good at the game so trying to get players before they become bandwagons XD

                    Sometimes works...often backfires!

    €120m for Sancho isn't a bad deal considering he is already performing at a high level and has Ballon D'or level potential. Covid means United are blessed enough to have a free run him in what would've been a market where he would've had better teams chasing him.

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      23 hours, 15 mins ago

      Yeah when you think it’s akin to €10m a year over 12 seasons it starts to look very reasonable

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        22 hours, 55 mins ago

        Fee is a secondary factor when a player is that young, that good and has unlimited potential.

        Bigger issue is ridiculous wages at such a young age. Sets a precedent for the rest of the squad to demand similar. See DDG, Alexis. Even Martial is on 250k. Sancho rumoured offer is close to 400k. What's he going to earn when he's 25?!!

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 10 Years

          I’m sure all the usual “creative acccounting” avenues will be explored..

          Merchandising & tax structures etc would probably be more lucrative for Sancho than his base salary (~50% of which would have to go to HMRC!) and can kind of protect utd in that they’re semi-performance based (a percentage of his own image rights etc gets up into the mega bucks, and when it’s channelled into some tax haven he gets more of it home with him too)

            To see what was possible. Because we can use history to learn from.

            Example: All of the first team players were established PL players who had shown the ability to get points in prior seasons.

    Afternoon all,

    New community article for you all, this time from Red Lightning. He's collected how the top managers used their chips this season - it'd be interesting to see what conclusions you draw from it!

    With all these players likely to be reclassified as midfielders is 3-5-2 the new template? Imagine it will be very hard to have all three of Salah, KDB and Auba in your teams with any premium strikers. I think Auba may remain a forward if Lacazette is sold in time for the relaunch.

      Maybe even 442. I recon that best defenders at 7-8 mil might be better value than some midfielder in same price bracket.
      Or 451 perhaps...but let’s wait and see new prices.
      TBH I don’t expect some midfielders- like Pulisic to be too highly priced as many expect. For example - Pulisic was outscored this season by players like Mount, Richarlison or Traore...we can’t expect his price to hike too much while their price remains reasonable...just a thinking out loud 🙂

        Even if we're wildly optimistic about player prices you won't get this team for less than 107-108 million.

      Yeah, bit too expensive but I agree in theory - that might be the way to go but let’s see prices once they release them.
      I remember, this time - last year - most were planing to double up on Liverpool defense...then used early WC to change it as Liverpool didn’t produce many CS in the beginning...hope our initial plan works for once 🙂

      Will eat my hat if that is under 100m. Enjoy the summer and come back when actual prices are released at the earliest.

      Quite a few of those players probably won't even be up for consideration because they'll start the season late.

    Choose 3 players to be your starting point and back bone of your team for next season (season keepers - if there is such a thing)
    Mine would be:
    TAA
    KDB
    Pulisic

      Not KDB or Pulisic as KDB will probably start late and Pulisic injured. Got to consider TAA, Salah and Mane in a 3-5-2.

        He asks for season keepers and you base your judgment on GW1 only?

          I wouldn't call players missing the first few weeks season keepers to be fair.

            Their clubs still play 38 games though. And we're probably talking about one week. Anyway, you stick to your own definition of 'season keeper' - I'm pretty sure the OP had a different notion.

        We still don’t know of course if there will be blank GW1 but of course we will have to make changes if that happen - at least for first GW but those 3 players I hope to keep all season.

          I hope the PL rig the fixtures so that all those teams and Chelsea were due to play eachother in the first few weeks.

      TAA
      KDB
      Bruno

        Yeah, was contemplating same and Bruno will definitely be in my team as well...I’m only hoping that Puli will be 8 or 8.5 max - while Bruno - my guess would be 10.5 - 11.

          I expect my 3 nominees to be in over 50% of starting squads, so many will have them. I'd have Pulisic too if I can afford him. I'd put him at 8.5 probably, but Bruno maybe 11.5.

    I’m sure it’s been discussed here already, but what are people’s thoughts on starting with TAA, Robbo and VVD. If you had midfielders priced that way who score 170-210 per season, you’d have them straight away. You’ll lose captaincy options for Salah/Mané, but should be able to afford enough Chelsea/Man City/Man Utd to have a viable captain each week, if not TAA with the armband.

      Way too expensive. If it goes wrong like it pretty much did for most of the first half of last season it's a disaster as you won't have enough of the premium assets elsewhere in the team.

        That might cost something like 8, 7.5 and 7 million. Perhaps little (million) less, but they should be expensive. That is a lot of money tied early in the season and is risky business. I'm not saying it won't work, but that money can do business also elsewhere.

      I'm definitely getting robbo and trent. Still haven't decided on vandijk

      I've been promoting this all over the shop. Getting plenty of flack but sticking to my guns. With KDB and Bruno to share captaincy, I've calculated I can have a viable squad build around that.

        We have an almost similar strategy :p except I'm only double liverpool cuz want Doherty

        I am slightly worried that KdB isn't much better home than he is away. Have to check the stats. Salah at Anfield had much bigger home advantage.

    Would be nice to be able to "tag" a specific user on here? Eg. @christina. They then get an email. Or too social media-ish?
