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 300 minutes which is just over 40% of the available minutes up to GW8.

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 

Here’s the google spreadsheet schedule.  Just make a copy and use it how you like.
