FPL Top Picks for Gameweek 8 out now!

Most popular players in FPL

We take a look through the most popular players in FPL. With the help of the Official Fantasy Premier League website, we can see which players have the highest ownership in the game and why that could be the case.

Fantasy Premier League managers have unlimited transfers to build their new squad ahead of the restart. For that reason it could be beneficial to know who the most popular players in FPL are and why FPL managers are owning them in bulk.

The most popular players

  • Man City striker Erling Haaland has the highest ownership in the game (83%). The striker has been in relentless form and remains the highest scoring asset in the game.
  • Newcastle defender Kieran Trippier has the second highest ownership (65%). Newcastle are joint first for clean sheets in the league so far and Trippier is sustaining some of the best distribution stats amongst all players.
  • Man City defender Joao Cancelo has the third highest ownership (53%). Cancelo is yet to sustain a high level of offensive returns to justify his price. However, he is nailed in the defence and does have double Gameweeks ahead.
  • Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli has nearly 48% ownership. The midfielder has proven great value for money and could be a great hold for Arsenal’s double Gameweek’s ahead.
  • Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has 46% ownership. However the Brazilian picked up a long term injury in the World Cup.
  • Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne has been consistent this season and dominates the distribution stats whilst already creating nine assists this season. Kevin De Bruyne has 38% ownership.
  • Newcastle midfielder Miguel Almiron has been in fantastic form this season and somewhat of a revelation. Almiron has 37% ownership.
  • Other players in the list include Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Salah who has 32% ownership and Manchester United midfielder Marcus Rashford, who has hit a great run of form and has fantastic fixtures in the next three Gameweeks.
