GW29 Top Ranked Players
I followed my own advice and captained Lukaku this weekend and how frustrating was that penalty miss, especially with alternatives Bale and Suarez nudging ahead with cheeky assists. Cost me a much needed 16 points. I have lodged a complaint with the United Nations Human Rights department about the cruelly that can be inflicted upon FPL managers. Don't you know it. Ho hum.
As can be seen by the Top Ranked players by F.SCORE Lukaku "deserved" his points with the highest aggregate shot data closely followed by Vertonghen and the in-form Benteke. James Morroson was pretty splendid for West Brom, a performance which saw him bag maximum bonus points.
No Suarez though, despite 12 fantasy premier league points? He only had 2 shots, 1 on target, and the goal. His assist for Gerrard's penalty was from a foul and not a key pass so he doesn't get credit there either. He just missed out the top 15.
Looking at the last 6 gameweeks then (below) we see Bale head and shoulders above the rest, followed up by the aforementioned Suarez in a group with Arsenal's Walcott and Giroud. These two are the biggest under performer's right now in terms of lots of chances had and not many goals scored (although Walcott has picked up assists). With upcoming fixtures on their side though and a Double Gameweek you can plan for (GW33) don't ignore them.
Benteke is another player whose strong points performances are warranted and up against QPR at the weekend and Villa scrapping for their lives he should continue to see plenty of well-deserved attention.
