Best Everton picks in FPL

We take a look at the best Everton picks in FPL. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area, we utilise its fixture ticker and underlying stats to determine which Everton players FPL managers should be targeting.

Looking at the best Everton picks in FPL could be really beneficial to FPL managers as we approach an exciting double Gameweek. Overviewing both their defensive and offensive options and finding out which players are worth selecting.

Fixtures

As we can see from the fixture ticker below Everton rank near the bottom. They have some of the worst fixtures amongst all teams from now until the end of the season. We can also see that Everton do not have a double Gameweek scheduled.

The Everton attack

This season amongst all teams so far Everton rank the joint second worst for goals scored (22) whilst also rank amongst the worst six teams for total attempts on goal (289), shots in the box (191) and shots on target (97). This suggest that Everton have struggled offensively.

More recently in the last six Gameweeks amongst all teams they rank amongst the best for shots in the box (55), big chances total (15), shots on target (26) whilst sitting mid-table for other key attacking data points. This indicates that Everton are improving offensively.

The best Everton attackers

Dwight McNeil (£5.1m) is the standout attacking option. The midfielder has managed two returns in his last three matches including an 11-point haul. He also edges his offensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement in the last six Gameweeks (2.06).

Another great option is Demarai Gray (£5.3m). The midfielder edges his offensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement over the course of the season so far (7.17). Gray is also on penalty taking duty until striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) returns from injury.

The Everton defence

This season amongst all teams Everton rank the second worst for shots in the box conceded (296), second worst for shots total conceded (424) and fourth worst for shots on target conceded (137). This suggests that Everton have struggled defensively this season.

More recently in the last six Gameweeks Everton rank second worst for goals conceded (12), third worst for shots in the box conceded (64), third worst for shots on target conceded (30) and joint second worst for big chances conceded. This indicates that defensively, Everton are not improving.

The best Everton defensive players

The standout defensive option from the Everton backline is James Tarkowski (£4.3m). Not only does he edge his defensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement this season (3.49) but he also edges them in the last six Gameweeks (1.15). The centre-back has collected a goal and an assist in his last 10 matches.

The next best option at the back could be fellow centre-back Conor Coady (£4.9m). Not only can he be considered a threat from set pieces but he also sits as the second highest defender amongst the backline for non penalty expected goal involvement this season (1.34).
