Best West Ham picks in FPL

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

Looking at the best West Ham 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

We can see from the fixture ticker below that West Ham rank second. This means that they have the second best fixtures from now until they end of the season. West Ham also have a double Gameweek in 29, play in blank Gameweek 32 and have a double in Gameweek 34.

The West Ham attack

This season amongst all teams West Ham rank amongst the worst six teams in the league for goals scored (24), goals scored in the box (10), big chances total (38) and shots on target (91). They also rank around mid-table for other key attacking data points.

More recently in the last six Gameweeks West Ham rank amongst the worst six teams for total attempts on goal (54), shots in the box (39), big chances total (nine) and shots on target (15). In the same period they also rank around mid-table for goals scored (six).

The best West Ham attackers

The standout attacker from the West Ham frontline is Jarrod Bowen (£8m). The midfielder leads his offensive teammates for non-penalty expected goal involvement this season (9.93) and in the last six Gameweeks (2.31). Bowen has also picked up two goals and an assist in his last six matches in all competitions.

Some managers could also consider striker Danny Ings (£6.4m) who ranks close behind Bowen as West Ham’s second most successful player in terms of non-penalty goal involvement (1.99). Ings picked up a huge 13-point haul in one of his most recent matches consisting of two goals and three bonus points.

Another option many could consider is Said Benrahma (£5.5m) who could be the cheapest way into the West Ham attack. The Algerian takes his teams penalties and has banked an impressive two goals and three assists in his last five starts.

The West Ham defence

This season amongst all teams West Ham rank in the best eight teams for goals conceded (34), shots in the box (194), total attempts conceded (311), headed attempts conceded (50), big chances conceded (44) and errors leading to goal (four).

More recently, in the last six Gameweeks West Ham rank the fifth best for big chances conceded (10), joint second best for attempts from set plays conceded (11) and mid-table for other key attacking data points.

The best West Ham defensive assets

Over the last six Gameweeks we have seen massive rotation amongst the West Ham backline. The only defensive player to have started all of their last three matches is centre-back Nayef Aguerd (£4.8m). Because of that Aguerd could be the safest and most nailed option in the back-line.
