Who is the best striker to lead your line this week? We’ve looked at the numbers ahead of Gameweek 13.
Using our new FPL rating system — Squawka Score — we are providing you with our top recommendations for selection heading into Gameweek 13.
What is Squawka Score? You can learn more about how we devised our fantasy football ranking system here.
Here are the top 10 Premier League forwards based on their FPL Squawka Score from the 2023/24.
|Player||FPL Squawka Score||23/24 Team||23/24 FPL Price|
|Erling Haaland||80%||Man City||14.0|
|Julian Alvarez||71%||Man City||7.1|
|Ollie Watkins||67%||Aston Villa||8.4|
|Odsonne Edouard||52%||Crystal Palace||5.5|
In our Differential Duel feature, we look for a player who scores well on our system but is not being selected by most FPL managers.
We will then pit that player against a comparable asset who is being widely selected and it’s on you to make the all-important final decision.
Ahead of Gameweek 13, we’ll take a look at if you could benefit from moving away from Darwin Nunez (16.4%)
We think we may have identified a different striking option without compromising in quality.
Eddie Nketiah (10.2%) could be a viable option to make the switch to.
Nunez costs 1.8m more but his stats don’t hold up against Arsenal’s Nketiah, who could well benefit from an injury to Gabriel Jesus.
Here’s how their per 90 stats from 2023/24 compare on our Comparison Matrix.
We have run the numbers from 2023 through our Squawka Score super computer to find some budget forwards ahead of Gameweek 13.
Here are our recommendations.
