The best strikers to buy, sell and hold based on FPL goal threat from open play

With so many goals already this season, it’s all about strikers in Fantasy Premier League – but which ones should we sell, keep or buy?

We have already witnessed 103 goals over the first 28 matches of the campaign, an average of 3.68 per game. To put that into perspective, the previous Premier League record across the course of a full season was an average of 2.82 goals per game. 

With nets bulging up and down the country, it is natural to assume that the bulk of the goals will be scored by strikers and, with the new handball regulations leading to more penalties being awarded, it is only natural to favour front-men on spot kick duties.

The FPL Eye Test - Gameweek 3 3

For example, the following forwards take penalties for their respective clubs:

  1. Neal Maupay (£6.5m) – Brighton
  2. Chris Wood (£6.5m) – Burnley
  3. Richarlison (£8.0m) – Everton
  4. Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) – Fulham
  5. Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) – Leicester City
  6. Callum Wilson (£6.4m) – Newcastle
  7. Danny Ings (£8.4m) – Southampton
  8. Harry Kane (£10.5m) – Spurs
  9. Charlie Austin/Hal Robson-Kanu (£5.4m) – West Brom
  10. Michail Antonio (£6.4m) – West Ham
  11. Raul Jimenez (£8.6m) – Wolves

CHECK OUT THE FULL PENALTY TAKERS LIST HERE

That’s a pretty large share out of the 20 teams. So, while 3-5-2 has been gaining popularity over the last few years, the number of penalty takers available at budget prices in forward positions may very well help cement the classic 3-4-3 as the preferred formation.

But do we want to be investing in strikers who rely exclusively on penalties? While there could be merit in that approach, surely we want to investing those who offer plenty of threat from open play as well.

    Which is the best midfield combo for a budget of 11m -
    1. Podence, Costa
    2. Burke, Townsend
    3. Burke, Foden

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years

      1

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Do you have to play both?

      1. subhojit123
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        No...but will have to rotate with Dunne in defense

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Podence + Klich is my favourite for that formation 352

      1 if brewster is transfered otherwise 3

    ASM dodged another price drop, here's hoping he can last one more night...

  3. mynameisq
    • 7 Years

    Still don't understand the Brewster hype here, another FFS train that lots board for no real reason

    1. RUUD!
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      4.5 for a playing striker.....

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeah. In a decent side too. It would easily enable 4 big hitters

      2. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        This

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That's actually my point lads, there was nothing stopping you doing that with another 4.5, sure nobody at 4.5 plays but if this is your ideal strat then surely you've done that anyway because the upgrades players with that price saving is who you want to play all the time?

          How often is Brewster gonna start for you? Very rarely, and even rarer that you time that with him getting points

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Can easily become starting quality... next cheapest starting striker is 5.5. Bit of a difference in price wouldn’t you say?

            1. mynameisq
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yes 5.5 is a larger number than 4.5 , great insight!

              Just pointing out he's not a cert to get points, and if you're saying ah he's 4.5 he enables funds then you could have done that any time really

              1. The Big Fella
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                1) You're being a nob 2) nobody's bench plays that often in FPL but it is better if the bench plays in real life so when they are called on, you get points (even if it is 2). I don't see how after 7+ years of playing this you don't see the benefit of having a 4.5m first choice/first team playing striker

              2. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 23 days ago

                Look at Greenwood last season, starting games at 4.5 and this season he’s priced at 7.5...
                why would a non starting 4.5 striker be the same as a starting one? The ability to play Brewster every week is what makes him a potential bargain, I can’t see what your point is

    2. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Free's up cash nothing about his skills

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I know that, my point is if your ideal strategy is having a 4.5 to enable upgrades elsewhere then why wouldn't you have done that anyway? As I doubt Brewster is gonna get many minutes in anyone's team starting

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Not the case. If he starts, then you could play him plus a huge midfield with a pair of premium strikers to boot.

          1. mynameisq
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            What would your team be with him in then?

          2. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Eg.

            Fernandez/KDB/Hamez/Salah
            DCL/Vardy/Brewster

            1. The Big Fella
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Exactly

    3. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I have a 4.5m Forward in my team, name me a better option than Brewster.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Youre the caveat and excluded as you've already got the 4.5 tactic, so Brewster totally makes sense for you

        My comment is mainly aimed at people that haven't used that strategy and will do it just because of Brewster

        1. JustSomeGuy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Ah, ok, all forgiven 🙂

      2. Aguerrrooooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        i think im going to wildcard after this week for that very reason. will be benched most of the time but if he plays in gameweek 5 he is at home to Fulham. Welcome aboard Brewster!!

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yeah but if he's at home to Fulham he's still just a young striker playing for a not that good attacking team, who would you actually play him over

          1. Aguerrrooooooo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Soucek haha

        A fellow Vassilev owner!?

    4. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Shef calendar is awful till GW 9 so we will have time to evaluate ...

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      It's a no brainer at that price point

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        My point isn't he's bad, my point isn't that I don't understand a mostly starting 4.5 striker to upgrade elsewhere

        My question is mainly if that's your main tactic surely you've done that already anyway, does Brewster starting make that much of a difference as surely most people will be benching like 90-95% of the time?

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Well IMO, you can find good rotation options to play him for nice games and bench him for others e.g. Sheff Utd + Soton

          (ARS) FUL (LIV) (MCI) (CHE) WHU WBA
          WBA (CHE) EVE AVL NEW (WOL) (MUN)

          1. mynameisq
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Of course it's not impossible, I'm just pointing out the bandwagon is flying as if he's already amazing

    6. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Got him on WC with Salah and Robbo. Need Trent but he's preventing that move due to 3 Pool. Only reason I'm happy about it tbh. I don't think Sheff U will score this season actually.

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        XD

    7. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Also, a player gaining good TV on your bench vs. one like Burke (who could drop).

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Okay good point there

    8. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He's an upgrade on my non-starting bench player Davis for sure.

    9. The Big Fella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Not a single comment/response supporting this opinion. I bet you said the same thing about Kane when he was 4.5m too 😉

    10. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He's a decent bench pick but wouldnt do it because it takes a liverpool slot

  4. The Strokes
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Correct bench and captain?

    Foster
    Robertson Saiss James
    KDB Sterling (C) Foden Podence
    Jimmy Ings DCL

    Martinez - Lamptey Mitchell Burke
    0 FT – 2.4 ITB (Did Werner to Ings)

    fellas, in the offshoot TAA has covid, Neco Williams is the backup for his position, right?

    1. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      and it begins

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        lol, I'm asking for the obvious backup option

    2. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

      Source?

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        idk

        Lemme change the question, who's the positional backup for TAA?

        1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Tsimikas / Robbo are also options

          1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Even Milner

        2. Greasy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Milner

        3. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          N. Williams but they will probably be some jiggery-pockery and Milner will play there even though he prefers to play LB.

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Jose Mourinho on Son Heung-min's chances of featuring in #GW4: "I don't believe. But because he is so optimistic and always trying to give us positive feelings and hopes, I don't want to say he is completely out - because maybe he can surprise us."

          I think he is not going to say something more than what he already said

      2. rnrd
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        something like, "Sonny, I don't know, maybe, maybe not. maybe I trolled you all saying Sonny was injured to cover the bad decision I made to sub him off and manage his game time against NEW. Maybe not. I ssssink you will see on sunday"

    Morning, GTG?

    Martinez
    TAA | Digne | Dallas
    Salah | Bruno | Rodriguez | Barnes | Soucek
    Kane | DCL

    Steer | Mitchell | Davis | Buur

    Took a -4 this week (Son to Barnes & Wilson to DCL)

    1.0m ITB for either Digne to Robbo or Bruno to Sterling next gameweek.

    Thanks

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lacking City but nothing you can do given you have already taken a -4. You have some lovely differentials in there that would score big for you. GTG

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Cheers mate, had a storming start and slightly annoyed to have taken the hit this week but given Son injury, DCL form and Leicester fixtures/form I’m hoping it pays off

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          I bet you did with both Son and Kane in GW2! 😉

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Yeah mental, even last week nearly all of my players returned.
            I’m sure the good luck will end soon haha

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I guess ignoring the hit that has already been taken, is Bruno to Sterling worth a -4?

    So is Brewster now the bargain you must have?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      No. Still think 3-4-3 is the optimal formation and you want all 3 of your strikers to be top-notch. We have not seen Brewster even play yet for SHU

      1. tisza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        or could seriously pack a midfield with 3-5-2 and a likely playing forward as1st sub

  10. Limbo

    Guys, other than FPL Blackbox and FPL Wire, which are other podcasts that are just as informative and stats-based as those two? I listen to Always Cheating and FPL General as well, but they seem to be more banter-based. I am after in-depth analysis podcasts.

    1. Raindragon

      will he drop until deadline ?

        After these rumors he's only going to rise. Don't forsee a drop.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        No chance he drops now

          Yeah. His numbers will be in reverse already.

    Following the cup match, what is the % of these starting, i already have KDB and would like another city player but unsure if I will get burnt by Pep roulette.

    A) Mahrez
    B) Foden

        Will wait to hear further on the press conferences later today and keep an eye out before deadline.

    I can already smell the delicious -4s from Burke to Brewster.

      Madness

      1. tisza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        not really that's a hit guaranteed to pay off.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 23 days ago

          How? Taking hits for bench fodders?

          1. tisza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Surely the assumption is Burke would be upgraded to a better mid? Creating flexibility between 3-4-3 and 3-5-2

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 23 days ago

              I get that but why for a hit? Can easily be done for free and have the same outcome... it’s not like Brewster is due for a 15 haul

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Only if you catch the points your fodder scores. Most times it'll be stuck on the bench.

  17. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

    Son and Mitchell to Barnes and Castagne worth -4 hit ?

    1. Drizz ✅

      I would, Castagne season keeper

          I like Castagne and Barnes, both are great pick

    Sterling captain anyone?

    1. Pukki Blinders

      Yessir

      1. Daniel - Go Granville

        I am on a WC and am surely tempted

      • Dark Side Of The Loon!

        Yes, had it on him last GW too 🙁

    3. Daniel - Go Granville

      Kane on a WC? Yes or no?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year

        No

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          why not? I will captain him next GW? I watched the EL he looks amazing to me

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            When Son plays he looks like he’s playing as an AM... when Bale comes in I imagine it will be worse for Kane’s goal output

      2. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Not for me. Rather use money from Jimi / Ings / DCL in MF

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Ings fixtures worry me after WBA and I won't captain Ings

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I have Vardy + DCL - so it's Jimi for me.

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Tentative yes. I actually really like Kane. And he's a differential.

      4. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        I think definitely. Fixtures are lovely after the IB and it can be easy switch to Kun once back fit

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I am tempted by Kane surely

        and I just sold him. Great. But we need 3 playing strikers the time is like that

    5. Vovhund
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Sure not the first to ask this, however:

      Werner to Jimenez for -4? My instict says no, but I'm worried about the market mooving

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Jimmy hatrick against Fulham would be nice

      2. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Definitely no for a hit

        Are you a cow by any chance?

    6. ididnt
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Son & Werner > Barnes & Ings -4?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Could well feature on rough with the smooth next week in either camp.

      2. fpork
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I wouldn't do hits for players who are not injured or if it doesn't enable you to switch an injured player.

        In your case, you can do Son to Barnes, without -4. So then I think no, don't take the hit.

        Werner could easily outscore Ings, and then you are just throwing away points.

      3. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Really scrutinise the players your bringing in. You’ve got to be happy with them for the long term, even if they blank a couple of games.

    7. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      How likely is ASM to play? And what about Podence, is he someone I could bring in for ASM?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Podence back in training and has been called up to the Portugal squad.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I’d sell ASM for Podence in a heartbeat.

    8. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Trying to reign in my aggressive attitude to taking hits this season, but this move is gnawing away at me.

      Would you do JRod to Sterling(c) for -4 ?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I would do it. It's a very strong upside chasing move and you have the funds to do it.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          There’s always consequences to spending that budget though, which is what’s holding me back. I could upgrade 1 of my defenders to Trent or even Trent and Robbo, but I like playing the fixtures with defenders.

          Digne, Saiss, James, Lamptey, Mitchell

          Only Saiss is worth upgrading there imo, what do you think? I know TAA and Robbo give attacking returns but if I got them, I would never play Lamptey, who has great fixtures.

      2. The Overthinker
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        For sure

        JRod is more of assist the assister

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yes, I think he may well be.

      3. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        You want to sell Rodríguez for a hit before a home game vs Brighton?

        Who would you captain otherwise?

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I don’t want to, per se. I can see Sterling scoring double points and JRod isn’t on penalties as I had hoped.

          Kdb(c) otherwise, which I may stick with even if I bring in Sterling.

          1. Goonsquad245
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I would a million percent keep and captain KDB.

            Lateriser’s success last season has got everyone making crazy -EV moves this season.

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. The Overthinker
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Richarlison will probably start

        2. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

      Trust my bench and keep transfer or ship out Son and/or Werner? 0,6m in bank and 1 FT

      Martinez

        He's still playing for Sheffield United who don't create much

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          True but I would still chance it out with him playing Fulham next GW. There ain't a better time to test it out.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Something will prob happen over IB so you'll be well set with a good first bench option

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Exactly my thought process right now...Hahaha!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I’d downgrade one to get a better defence

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Podence/ Foden/ Brewster on my assessment list!

      3. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Sheffield United - 0 goals

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          That is the reason they are buying him. Plus, I don't think they have lacked in creativity so much to have zero goals registered till now. Finishing has been poor. They even missed a penalty. And with Fulham next, Brewster deserves a chance! If only for that one game.

    13. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Own two players in a draft league that are considered injured but will chances to play, both with great fixtures so could use either of them ahead of Dier. Any news on Redmond/ Evans?

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I think Redmond is out for a period

    14. Nespinha
      • 5 Years

      Took a -4 hit, should I just wildcard?

      McCarthy, Steer
      Robbo, Saiss, KWP, Mitchel, Ferguson
      Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Pereira, Podence
      Werner, DCL, Davis

      1. Drizz ✅

        Looks fine. Werner isn't someone I like, but could produce vs Palace still so best to hold.
