Gameweek 7 brings three more FPL tips & three more price boosts for your perusal.
Banker – Sergio Agüero – 11.4m
It looks like the Argentinian superstar is firmly above Gabriel Jesus in the pecking order and his underlying stats certainly back that up - he leads the goal attempts charts with 31 (in just 450 minutes of action), has been involved in 8 goals, and has had the most shots in the box.
Brighton have yet to keep a clean sheet and this looks like a match made in heaven making Agüero the standout captain option this week.
Value – Raúl Jiménez – 5.5m
The Wolves striker is becoming a real differential with only 5% ownership. He’s produced attacking returns in his last 2 games and now embarks on a run of 4 favourable fixtures. He's also in the top 4 for goal attempts and has received the joint most big chances.
Southampton have conceded 5 goals in their 2 previous fixtures so, again, we're looking at a great match-up and an enticing entry point on a player for whom goals are surely imminent.
Wildcard – Jamie Vardy – 8.9m
Jamie Vardy has 2 goals & 2 assists in just 267 minutes of action so far this season. He’s currently on 22.3 mins per chance (compared to Aguero’s 32.3 & Mitrovic’s 42.9) so he’s getting plenty of opportunities and 11/12 of his shots have been in the box.
Leicester play Newcastle this weekend and their run from now until the end of the year is fantastic so it’s a great time to invest.
Averages so far:
Banker – 8.8pts
Value – 4pts
Wildcard – 6.9pts
