GW12 Striker Comparison

By Fantasy Football Fix ()


Toney has scored the fewest Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points (seven) of the strikers in the comparison but he posts strong underlying numbers. He is top for shots (11) and shots on target (SoT) (four), while he is also second for attempted assists (three) and penalty area actions (eight). Only Norwich (26) have conceded more goals than Toney's next opponents Newcastle (24), so managers should hold firm for at least one more week.


C. Wilson has scored two goals over the last four gameweeks and is second only to Jiménez (17) for FPL points (16). It is worth mentioning that he has scored with both his SoT so while that might be unsustainable in the long run, the arrival of his old manager Howe at St. James‘ Park is likely to lead to an improvement in performances. The Magpies play Brentford, Norwich and Burnley in three of their next four matches and C. Wilson could be a shrewd acquisiton.


Antonio has notched just one goal over the last four gameweeks and his underlying numbers have dropped significantly. He has landed just two SoT over the last four matches but is top of the comparison for attempted assists (six) which indicates he has taken on a more creative role. However, he is still top for penalty area actions (11) and with West Ham flying, managers should keep the faith.


Despite playing the fewest minutes of the players in the comparison, Jiménez still posts decent underlying numbers. He is the only forward to register an assist but it is worth mentioning this was from his only chance created over the last four matches. He is also joint-first for 'big chances' (two).


On the other hand, Jiménez’ South Korean teammate Hwang has posted very poor numbers. He has landed just one SoT over the last four matches and registered just two penalty area actions. However, Wolves play Norwich and Burnley in two of the next three matches so he could still deliver in the short term.
