GW6 Top Five Key Players

Since the days of Shearer, Henry and Ronaldo we have only been presented with one Fantasy Premier League (FPL) asset who has consistently performed at an elite standard for several seasons, that man is Agüero (11.6). His record is simply astonishing, having supplied attacking returns (goals/FPL assists) every 82 minutes. The Man. City forward has played 13,774 minutes of Premier League football scoring 127 goals, and assisting 41 for teammates.

GW5 Top Five Key Players

“It must be September” were the cries heard across social media after Kane (12.4) managed a monster double-digit haul of 13 points, away to Everton in gameweek four. For those that kept faith during a dire August period, it must have felt like just deserts. It was no secret that Kane’s Fantasy Premier League (FPL) underlying numbers for August were absolutely astonishing, making it harder to fathom why he had not managed to find the back of the net. The Englishman averaged a whopping 8 shots a game in the first three gameweeks, compared to Lukaku’s (11.7) 4.7. Kane has attempted 40% more shots than anyone else in the first four gameweeks with 28

GW4 Top Five Key Players

Lukaku (11.7) is the only Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Forward to have risen by £0.2m since the season begun. While other premium Forwards have been sold by FPL managers in their droves, Lukaku has risen due to being clinical, if nothing else. After all, Kane’s (12.4) stats are nothing short of extraordinary for a man that has zero goals to his name after three weeks. Kane’s impressive underlying numbers aside, Lukaku has averaged more shots (4.7), shots inside the box (3.7), as well as a higher score on FPL’s Bonus Point System (BPS) (26.7), when compared to four other heavy-hitting Forwards, in Morata (10.1), Jesus (10.4), Agüero (11.5) and Lacazette (10.4), which can be seen in our info-graphic below.

Only Wayne Rooney (7.5) has earned more bonus points this season (with six) than this week’s headline pick, Eriksen (9.6), who has a mightily impressive five to his name. The next best is a cluster of players with a total of three. Eriksen has attempted five assists so far this season, which is more than Alli (9.5) and Mané (9.5) who have supplied three attempts each.

GW2 Top Five Key Players

Although the solitary point in gameweek one would suggest otherwise, Kane (12.5), was the most active of the power-four attackers (displayed in the infographic below), managing more shots (six), more shots inside the box (five), and joint most penalty area actions (dribbles or passes, in or out of the box) (two), when compared to Agüero (11.5), Lukaku (11.5) and Jesus (10.5).

Coutinho (8.5) looks back to his scintillating best, after taking a while to find his feet after a Malleolar injury side-lined him for seven games mid-season. It is now six goals and two assists in his last eight games, having only managed a solitary goal in his previous nine encounters.

GW36 & GW37 Top Five Key Players

This time last year, Hazard (10.5), was receiving endless amounts of stick across sporting media for looking increasingly disinterested. Accusations were full-flow that the Belgium was even feigning injury, such was the despondency around Stamford Bridge. By golly, how a year can drastically change impressions. The hugely talented midfielder is now sitting on 15 goals and nine assists for the season, topping his previous best goal-tally of 14 in a Premier League season with four games to play.

GW35 Top Five Key Players

Coutinho’s (8.5) form across the last six gameweeks have propelled him to the front of our minds, and with the other five “top six” teams coming into gameweek 35 off the back of very packed schedules, we thought it was only right to make Philippe our headline pick having had 11 days of rest and no risk of rotation. Over the last six gameweeks the lively South-American has attempted 22 shots at goal, more than Son (7.3) 21, Sigurdsson (7.5) 20, Firmino (8.7) 15 and Alli (9.2) 14.

GW34 Top Five Key Players

The words "frustratingly bad" have rarely looked out of place when describing Benteke over the course of the last two seasons, but the Belgium is finally beginning to turn things around for club and country with a fine spell of recent form. Timely, with this week's double-gameweek. Many FPL manager's attentions of late have been directed towards Zaha (6.0) and Middlesbrough defenders. However, only Agüero (12.8) can better Benteke’s goals scored in the last four gameweeks with four. But, the Belgium matches Agüero’s goal involvement when including his solitary assist, meaning that the two of them are standouts with four contributions each.
