Important note before going further

The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in GW1-11 to date. Those who have taken penalties or are expected to be the penalty taker have an * next to their name

Then there’s there fixture ease ranking,   their average minutes in the first 11 gameweeks plus their value for money factor and their anytime goalscoring odds

The 2nd schedule shows their xG90 and xA90

I’ve already posted the defender rankings and best attacking defenders rankings to GW8

Player values are as of Wednesday 9 December

A few players worth commenting oN

Players not in the schedule

Perez, Pulisic and Ziyech are not in them not meeting the minutes threshold.  They will have to be based on your eyes.

Barkley (16th) was not in their due to an injury doubt

Harvey Barnes (20th), Trossard (24th) and Foden (27th) are not in their due to injury doubts

Saint Maximin (31st), Aubameyang (33rd), Havertz (35th), Ward Prowse (47th) Pogba (95th) are a few players who didn’t make the cut of top 30

Aston Villa

Grealish continues to be in the form of his life.  Trezeguet has posted some good stats but can’t seem to put the ball in the neither neither can the team mates he makes key passes for.  If you believe that will eventually correct itself he could be a good option

Man City 

Both Sterling are behind last years underlying stats although De Bruyne has penalties and is starting to home in on last years figures.  Mahrez has posted great stats as well.

Liverpool

Salah is the penalty taker but still a bit disappointing compared to last season.  Mane has posted good stats.  Jota’s are truly incredible for the price only hindered by average minutes

West Ham

Bowen for his goal threat and Soucek for value are my picks over Fornals.

Jack Harrison

A good overall option if a little assists based meaning your returns are in the hands of others.

James Ward Prowse

He’s low in this analysis as direct free kicks and headers from set pieces can often be judged as low probability.  to what extent you think this can continue will guide your view of him.
