Important note before going further

The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in GW1-7 to date. Those who have taken penalties have an * next to their name

Then there’s there fixture ease ranking  their average minutes in the first 7 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 midfield rankings

Player values are as of Thursday 5 November

The numbering isn’t sequential as players are missing through injury or gametime risk

A few players worth commenting on


Just posting incredible stats after a few years of them deteriorating.  Fixtures change after Brighton

Calvert Lewin

Fulham in GW9is worth remembering

Wilson and Bamford

Both are posting excellent stats and have good fixtures and a good GW8 entry point.  Both are hostages to their past which is the risk with them


Arsenal next which isn’t a great entry point but after that the fixtures are good and he looks like he’s cemented penalty duties


Looks like he’s got pen duties from Jorginho.  Stats are pretty ordinary at the moment but they were incredible in Germany.  Possible position and minutes share with Abraham isn’t helpful

A fixture ease schedule for attacking players

Here’s a graphic where the teams are ranked by the ease of the defences they face over the next 6 gameweeks
