The FPL forwards I am considering for the last two Gameweeks of the season

With seven Gameweeks crammed in since the beginning of April, it’s been a challenging period for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers. But here we are, with just two rounds of fixtures to go.

For myself, I’m hoping for a strong finish that would cap off a testing season that saw me down at an overall rank of 271,064 in Gameweek 30.

However, since then, I’ve managed six consecutive green arrows, and head into the final stretch at 67,097.

So, with two Gameweeks to go, I need to carefully consider my options in an attempt to break the top 50k, which I’m 14 points off.

My initial plan, at least prior to Diogo Jota’s (£7.0m) injury, which has ruled him out for the remainder of the season, was to sell Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.2m) and bring in a new forward.

To scout potential recruits, I plugged in my ‘Hitman’ custom table, which focuses on a selection of statistics I like to look at when searching for goalscorers. In this particular example, I’ve included the top ten using data from the last six Gameweeks:

The idea behind using statistics to start my search is to filter players, and as a result focus on a smaller, more manageable group who I can then run the eye test over.

Having factored in, amongst other things, fixtures, rotation concerns, fitness and price (my budget is £6.9m), I removed Christian Benteke (£5.5m), Jamie Vardy (£10.2m), Matej Vydra (£4.8m), Callum Wilson (£6.5m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) from my search, leaving three forwards to consider.

CHRIS WOOD

  • Price: £6.5m | Minutes played: 2561 | Goals: 12 | Assists: 3 | Bonus points: 16 | Total points: 134
  • GW37-38 fixtures: LIV | shu

Chris Wood (£6.5m) has been in superb form since the start of March, scoring eight goals and providing three assists in 10 matches. There have been goals against Arsenal, Everton, Southampton, West Ham United and Fulham, and of course his hat-trick at Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

That upturn in form has coincided with an increased attacking output from Sean Dyche’s side.

However, part of me does feel like I may have missed the boat with this one, and it’s hard to get too excited about his Gameweek 37 fixture against Liverpool, which means I’ll probably look elsewhere.

JOELINTON

  • Price: £5.7m | Minutes played: 1934 | Goals: 4 | Assists: 2 | Bonus points: 5 | Total points: 73
  • GW37-38 fixtures: SHU | ful

“I think he’s coming to terms with the language, the Premier League and to England. He’s far better than what he was and we know there’s a player in there – that’s for sure. I’m delighted he’s got a few goals now and looks a threat.” – Steve Bruce

Okay, hear me out.

We all know Joelinton (£5.7m) has struggled since he completed his £40m move from Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, but it’s worth noting he has been one of Newcastle United’s better performers since the beginning of March, and has now scored three goals in his last seven appearances, despite just five starts.

I also expect him to be on penalties, which does boost his potential.

However, regardless of my stance on Joelinton, do I trust the Magpies’?

It makes sense to focus on their performances from Gameweek 30 onwards, which is when Steve Bruce reverted to a back three formation.

Above: Newcastle United’s attacking record in the Premier League since Gameweek 30

Looking at the attacking data, it all looks reasonably encouraging ahead of games against relegated Sheffield United and Fulham. The return of Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m) and Wilson, at least for a period, has proved crucial, as did the decision to switch to a 3-5-2 and recall Matt Ritchie (£4.9m).

Despite this, you can never be sure which Newcastle will turn up. Remember Arsenal in Gameweek 34?

I’m probably not going there with Joelinton, but I’m not completely against the move, especially if you’re in need of a mini-league miracle.

MICHAIL ANTONIO

  • Price: £6.5m | Minutes played: 1814 | Goals: 9 | Assists: 5 | Bonus points: 16 | Total points: 107
  • GW37-38 fixtures: wba | SOU

Gameweek 34 saw the return of Michail Antonio (£6.5m) to West Ham’s attack, after recovering from a hamstring injury which forced him off against Wolverhampton Wanderers last month.

He responded with a quickfire double, but has since blanked against Everton and Brighton and Hove Albion. However, he ended Gameweek 36 with four goal attempts, one big chance and seven penalty box touches, which is encouraging.

It’s also worth noting that no forward with substantial game-time to their name has a better rate of expected goal involvement (xGI) per 90 minutes this season, and with games against West Bromwich Albion and Southampton to come, Antonio looks like my best option given his schedule and numbers over a longer period.


So, I now have two options to mull over before deadline.

I can either press ahead with my planned Iheanacho > Antonio transfer, and as a result bench Jota and bring Craig Dawson (£4.5m) into my starting XI, or I can focus on that problem area in midfield.

If I do choose the latter and sell Jota, I like Raphinha (£5.5m) as an option, despite looking a little off the pace on Saturday. 

Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) and Phil Foden (£6.1m) are other alternatives, but minutes are a concern here, knowing that they could be hauled off early given their team’s respective commitments in Europe.

However, another name at Newcastle has caught my eye, too.

JOE WILLOCK

  • Price: £4.7m | Minutes played: 1036 | Goals: 6 | Assists: 0 | Bonus points: 2 | Total points: 60
  • GW37-38 fixtures: SHU | ful

Joe Willock (£4.7m) is an intriguing differential, currently owned by just 1.0% of FPL managers.

Against Manchester City last time out, he scored his fifth goal in as many games, and looked a real threat running from deep. He’s generally been the most advanced of Newcastle’s midfield three, and with matches against Sheffield United and Fulham coming up, I see no reason why he can’t maintain his form moving forward.

Above: Midfielders sorted by expected goals (xG) since Gameweek 30.

His budget price tag would give me more flexibility with transfers in Gameweek 38, too.

GAMEWEEK 37

So, as attention turns to Tuesday’s deadline, here’s how I’m currently setup, with the captaincy, at least for now, on Harry Kane (£11.8m):

That may change to Mohamed Salah (£12.8m), but the fact Aston Villa conceded 23 shots to an average Crystal Palace side in Gameweek 36 is encouraging for owners of Kane, Son Heung-min (£9.7m) and Gareth Bale (£9.2m).

As it stands, I’m leaning towards a forward transfer (Iheanacho > Antonio), but will decide on that closer to deadline.

So, best of luck for the run-in everyone, and thanks for reading.

    I think it's a big mistake to avoid players you think are gonna score big just because they are highly owned and opt only for those with low ownership

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      It all depends what you're planning at this stage. Are you chasing or consolidating a lead

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Still if you are chasing you get the players you think are gonna score more and not those your opponent doesn't owns

        1. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          For sure. I'm going for punts to get into top 10k and not even focusing on my ML anymore. And punts are players I feel have potential to do well and have good fixtures.

          To me punts like : ASM, Wilock, Joelinton, Periera could pay off like how Benteke has paid off the past few weeks.

    Cannot decide on captain this week, any advice on who to go with? Am chasing in my ML.

    A) Kane
    B) Salah
    C) Bruno
    D) Cavani

    Thanks all!

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      D if you trust him

  4. antis0cial
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    1.2 itb, tempted to save transfer and go into last gw with 2ft. Thoughts?

    Meslier
    TAA Digne Dallas
    Salah Son Greenwood Raph
    Kane DCL Antonio

    Areola Coufal Lowton Jota*

    1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Save

  5. Feed tha Sheep
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Raphina the best Jota replacement (have Greenwood) up to 7.6?

    1. Tibbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think that depends on if chasing/ leading. If leading I personally think Raphina is the safer choice but if chasing Willock/ Foden even Torres are good differentials. But game time and security of starts always the issue.

    2. AMBELLINA PRISE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      He is yeah, he has a good fixture in gw38 as well

    3. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Really dependent. Harrison is also looking good. JWP. ASM, Wilock and Periera are interesting options also.

      More risky options include Foden and Torres

  6. AMBELLINA PRISE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Need help lads! Who would you start:

    Reguilon [AVL (H)]
    OR
    Keane [WOL (H)]

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Reg

  7. Tibbs
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Asked yesterday but still none the wiser:

    Best differential to replace Jota but also most likley to play ~180mins?

    1) Harrison
    2) Raphina
    3) Foden
    4) Torres
    5) Willock

    Own Bamford + Dallas already if that makes a difference.

    1. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I’ve gone A but that’s because I’m chasing in my ML. Tough call between him and Raph for me.

    2. Help Me!
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      If you have the 180 mins requirement, then forget about City.
      Raph > Willock > Harrison for me

      1. Tibbs
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Don't have to be the full 180, should have rephrased to 90 mins + (30-60)

  8. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Up to 7.0, would you go Raphinha to replace Jota? Or punt on the likes of ESR/Willock/someone else?

    1. Tibbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      See above, exact same issue.

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I saw a stat on Twitter re Willock's xG - it is inflated due to the missed pen and rebound.
      I think Raphinha is a much more sensible choice, but still tempted by Willock!

    3. Christina.

      i bought him this morning

    4. King Kun Ta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      what about ASM?

  9. Kane wants to leave - Sky report
    Geoff
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    With Sky Sports reporting that Kane wants to leave in the summer, are you more likely to captain him in the final GWs this season? Will he be extra motivated to win the Golden Boot and perform to finish the season?

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/12309404/harry-kane-again-tells-tottenham-he-wants-to-leave-as-manchester-city-manchester-united-chelsea-lie-in-wait

    If he's leaving, a few PL clubs will likely take a run at him - which club would you like to see him at, for a reason other than 'it's my club'? Would he be as good an FPL asset at City? Would he do even better with Bruno's creativity? Is he what Chelsea needs?

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Tough to say. There could be a chance that his head is not in the game. Salah is also chasing golden boot and they have form and fixtures, so I'll stick with that atm.

      I suspect City / Chelsea would try to go for him. They have the means to throw such money

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I trust Pep can get something out of him and adapt, but I'm not sure he's the best fit for the way Pep probably wants to play. That said, of course he'd be a good option for City to have I'm just not sure for the money they'd need to spend that he's a good option for them

    2. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      A fit Kane is a locked (C) end of season. Even if Liverpool faces CRY(H) with fans in gw38 I'm still tempted to captain Kane again next gw against his favourite opponent LEI(A)

    3. BUZZBOMB
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Would be wasted at Utd, rotated at City. Chelsea most suited but barely a step up. Could be a significant piece in Liverpool jigsaw. Better for him to look wider. Bayern, Real, Inter, Juve, all better options if he can look beyond staying in PL.

      1. Lemongrab
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        'Chelsea barely a step up'

        Major honors last 30 years (League, main cup, Europe)
        Chelsea 17
        Tottenham 0

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I couldn’t see him going near Italy - it’s not far off a tin pot league now & the money just isn’t there, FFP has hit those clubs harder than most over the last few seasons

        Have an Italian mate who’s been a huge Inter fan since the early 90’s & he acknowledges Inter are still so limited as a club - they just benefitted from the Conte effect combined with the Pirlo effect - Man Utd rejects go to Serie A & perform like world beaters

        Bayern will probably sign Haaland in 12 months when his release clause kicks in as Lewandoski’s successor

        Could definitely see him in a Real Madrid shirt though - but not Barca oddly - something about Kane & Barca just don’t seem to dovetail - kind of like Ibra’s time there

    4. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      He is exactly what Perth Glory need. I hope they're in for him.

      1. HammersXI
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Was going to say Leeds, but Bielsa will trust Bamford more.

        There's a higher chance Kane will play CDM / CM with Kalvin over being in our first 11 haha

    5. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Arsenal because it's my club

    6. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Bookies odds for where he’ll be when the summer transfer window closes:

      Spurs 11/8
      Man City 13/8
      Man Utd 7/2
      Anywhere else - minimum 10/1 (Chelsea 10, PSG 16, Spain 25)

      With Greenwood’s emergence, Cavani’s new deal, Martial still on the books and Levy asking for 125m+ for a player who’ll be 29 next season we can pretty much rule out Man Utd

      PSG is interesting though - Kane’s relationship with Poch combined with Mbappe maybe moving on & their very deep pockets could definitely see that happening

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeah Welbeck on a free is more likely for United.

        Sancho this window, Haaland next window is the board's plan, I reckon.

      I'll be captaining this week. Possible last home game in front of the fans he will want to go out with a bang.

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeah I'd likely go him if I owned. Probably won't own though

        1. Lemongrab
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          For context I don't own Bruno who I actually think is the best option this week. However I am going Kane over Salah.

    8. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Don't own him, but leaves too much uncertainty and wouldn't captain if I had him. Salah the better captain with a chance of Golden Boot.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Salah the safest option for sure. Greenwood has the capability of going absolutely mental against Fulham.

    2. Tibbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Think I would do B, and play whoever over Coufal, more upside imo.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Hmm I really like Coufal - his attacking numbers are pretty good. Tough. Thanks

      Digne, although benching any of them I think ends in pain lol

      1. Henning
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Could bench JWP, but rather bench a defender i think.

        1. tim_oriordan
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I don't like having a midfielder or attacker vs one of my defenders because that's almost a no-win situation. So i'd bench JWP but it's your call obviously

    1 month, 5 days ago

    There’s been a real dwindle in the value of having 3 strikers in FPL in recent years, Kane is far and away the best points scorer this season and you’d have to actively rotate the others. Jimenez in previous seasons I suppose.

    Will they finally make the jump and change some of the higher scoring midfielders into strikers for next season?

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Salah n Mane has to be strikers ?

  18. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Which one would you go for?

      Raphinha may be a safer bet because if West Ham blank vs West Brom it's bad times for you lol

        valid point. cheers

    Is Bamford still a good pick for the last 2 games? I have 1 FT and want to get rid of Kelechi.

    1. tim_oriordan
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      decent but not good

    3. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes. But there are good options in Antonio and Joelinton also.

      He will start esp with Klich being out for the final 2 games

    Morning All

    I am thinking of replacing Jota for Greenwood, but not sure if I should also take a -4 to replace Iheanacho with Antonio?

    Guaita | Forster

    Veltman | Shaw | TAA | Dallas | Holding

    Son | Raph | Jota | Salah | Lingard

    Iheanacho | Kane | DCL

    Would really appreciate your comments.

    Thanks

    How many mins do we think Mahrez will get over next 2 games?

    Guys,
    Maddison out for Bale -4 worth doing ??
    or
    Nacho out for Antonio -4 ??

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No to Bale, Maybe Antonio

    2. King Kun Ta
      • 5 Years

      the latter

    Chasing in one ML.

    2 without Salah, 2 without Kane....

    Flip a coin? Currently C on Kane...

    Bench one of:
    A - Lingard
    B - Dallas
    C - Phillips
    D - Shaw
    E - Digne

    For my sins, currently on Lingard

    1. tim_oriordan
      • 5 Years

      Wow that is painful lol. I would go Watkins I think

      1. King Kun Ta

    Is it suicidal to go with Bale over Son? Son ownership is mega, Bale decent differential in my mini league.

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Bale may not start vs LEI imo

    2. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Not at all, I brought Bale in instead of Son last week as chasing. Could go either way.

      1. Burger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeah chasing here too, I guess it's all in the gamble at this stage.

    TAA Shaw Dallas
    Salah (c) Greenwood Lingard Jota*
    Kane DCL Watkins

    McCarthy Zaha Rud Dier 0.7itb

    Best Jota replacement and why?
    A) Willock
    B) Harrison
    C) Raph
    D) Someone else up to 7.6

    1. King Kun Ta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      My doubt as well, only as replacement for JWP. ASM also an option i think.

      Get kane salah and bruno. Set up for the 2 fixtures.

      1. Six Season Wonder
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Got 2 out of 3. my team without WC is decent I was hoping to get thru this GW without salah, but it's too risky.

        Hard one....wouldn't save with Mahrez (gametime?), Ings (bad form last gw) and Jota (injured) and Coady (glad he's on my bench..delivered nothing last GWs).
