The stats are before the GW19 Wednesdays games.  £prices as of 26 March 

I’ve take the xG90 and xA90 for the season to date and converted them into FPL attacking points having adjusted the total for average minutes played.  To qualify the players must have played 500 minutes.

I’ve also included their xG and xA as well as their  PPM.  In additional I’ve included their Shots per 90 minutes and key passes per 90 minutes.  All underlying stats are from the free site understat 

Under status the following abbreviations mean:  ROT = rotation risk.  INJ = injured  DRP = dropped.

The top 10 by Shots per 90 minutes

The top 10 by key passes per 90

Who’s in the top 10 in all 3 schedules?

Alonso – 1, 1 and 5

Alexander Arnold- 4,3 and 2

Cancelo – 5,5 and 3

The Fixture ease schedule for defensive players

Here’s a schedule where teams are ranked by the weakness of the attacking teams they face to the end of the season
