Important note before going further
I’ve now changed the focus to the last 10 gameweeks rather than the season
The first schedule ranks players by their NON penalty underlying stats and expected assists converted to FPL points in the last 10 gameweeks . Those who have taken penalties or are expected to be the penalty taker have an * next to their name
The form gives their ranking from the season/last 10 gameweeks/ last 5 gameweeks. I’ve put them in seperate columns so they are sortable. Note I have not completed this for GW29
The F Ease is the fixture ease ranking.
The value for money VFM ratio is the total expected points from their underlying stats divided by their price
The 2nd schedule shows their xG90 (expected goals) and xA90 (expected assists) plus their shots per 90 and key passes per 90.
There’s also anytime goalscorer odds.
I’ve already posted the defender rankings
Player values and PPMs are as of Wednesday 17th March

A few comments on players with fixtures in GW29
Producing great underlying stats and 2 goals in his last 4 isn’t to be sniffed at. Does have tricky fixtures though going forward apart from Newcastle in GW32 though. Seems to be behind the pecking order for pens unfortunately
Did his best in GW28 v Arsenal despite a lack of service and a fairly negative team attitude to start with. Even allowing for that he still managed a disallowed goal, hitting the post and 3 shots. The obvious captain favourite and has penalty duties. How he will manage in GW29 and going forward if Son is out for a while remains to be seen. Fixtures are mixed and he has a blank fixture in GW33 for he EFL Cup final. Has a fixture v Southamptn still to be arranged which should give a double gameweek
Has really struggled to put the ball in the net this season, much like his Brighton colleagues, and his underlying stats have dropped as well in the last 10 gameweeks and it’s only 1 assist and no goals in his last 9 games. Fixture is great in GW29 v Newcastle but then pretty mixed until Sheff Utd in GW33.
Another player who has struggled to put the ball in the net this season and is underperforming his xG. Like Maupay we seens a drop off of his underlying stats in the last 10 compared to his season stats. 2 assists and no goals in his last 6 is his current form. A hard to predict fixture v Spurs in GW29 but does have Fulham in 30 and WBA in 33 to look forward to
A similar story to the 2 above in that we have seen drop off in underlying stats in the last 10 compared to his season overall. His recent form is also questionable with 1 goal in his last 6. He’s also an injury doubt for GW29. Has Sheffield Utd in GW30 though and then it gets far tougher
Joelinton and Decordova Reid
I personally wouldn’t be looking to get either of them in for GW29
Players who didn’t make the schedule due to injury
Where they would have been in the schedule in brackets
(13) Callum Wilson, (21)Danny Ings, (23) Ashley Barnes
Players who didn’t make the schedule due to gametime risk
Note probably the trickiest to leave out were Maja who was ranked 5th as he was left out in GW28 v Man City and Lacazette who has only started 2 of the last 5. He was ranked 19th but was hindered by sub appearances reducing his average minutes.
There’s also (27) Jay Rodriguez, (29) Billy Sharp, (22) McGoldrick and (30)McBurnie
Here’s a schedule ranking their fixtures over the next 5 gameweeks by the ease of the defences they face
