This article after Mondays games and do not include stats from the rest of GW37+

This is the 2nd article in the player rankings series. There’s also defenders and GKs rankings

All the stats are from the free site understat


I’ve ordered the players by their underlying stats ranking when I convert their xG and xA over the season into FPL points for goals and assists. That figure is adjusted for the average minutes played over the last season.  Players with current penalty responsibility get that included in their stats.  Those currently without eg Rashford don’t

I’ve then provided a range of different stats to help you choose which player is the best for a transfer in.

Stats definitions

Form s/10/5. These are the form rankings for season, for the last 10 gameweeks and the last 5 game weeks. They are the average minutes adjusted rankings once the xG and xA are converted into FPL points. The lower the number the better the ranking.

Av minutes: The average minutes played over the season. Non appearances aren’t counted.

PPM – the fantasy premier league sites points per match.

ATGS: the anytime goal scorer bookies odds for GW38 for £1 invested.  These aren’t out as I do the article and neither are team to win odds so I’ll fill it in later.

VFM: A Value for Money calculation by dividing the theoretical season goal and assist points by the players value. The higher the better.

Commenting on a few players and teams for GW38+

Here I’ve tried to pick out a few players with Value for Money ratings of 10 or above who have good fixtures in GW38.

Arsenal v Watford

No Arsenal player made the cut here with Saka the highest rated in 50th position

Palace v Spurs

Son is the only player here and he has a poor value for money ranking. He ranks reasonably well over the season in 8th place but less so last 10 and 5

Everton v Bournemouth

Richarlison ranks ok over the season but poor in the last 10 and 5

Man City v Norwich

A number of qualifiers here.  It’s more about who plays.  Check the GW37+ lineup and just hit refresh repeatedly when the team sheets are about to come out for GW38.

De Bruyne, David Silva, Mahrez and Foden all qualify.  Sterling doesn’t over the last 10 but is the 2nd best ranked player over the season after Salah

West Ham v Villa

Antonio has been a revelation helped alot by the 4 Norwich goals.  Bowen and Soucek also qualify.

Leicester v Man Utd

Normally not the case but with Chilwell, Soyuncu and Pereira all ruled out that’s 3 of the regular back 4.

Martial and Fernandes both qualify.
