The best Brentford players in FPL

Taking a look at the best Brentford players in FPL. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area we can utilise its fixture ticker and underlying statistics to find out if Brentford are worth investment and if so who the best defensive and offensive assets are in FPL.

The next period in FPL will be absolutely vital to the success of any given managers season. Looking through the best Brentford players in FPL could be an important factor as we navigate our way through a challenging fixture schedule.

Fixtures

The fixture ticker below shows all of the teams towards the top with the easiest fixtures from now until the end of the season, moving all of the way down to the teams with the toughest fixtures at the bottom.

We can also see Brentford rank fourth on the fixture ticker, meaning they have the fourth best fixtures in the league amongst all teams. In addition, amongst those fixtures they face two double Gameweeks as well as playing in blank Gameweek 28.

The fixtures suggest that investing in Brentford could be very beneficial, but where do we invest our money?

The Brentford attack

This season Brentford rank amongst the best eight teams in the league for goals (40), goals scored in the box (24) and big chances total (63) This shows they are fully capable of scoring goals and show other promising offensive data.

In the last six matches however, Brentford seem to be slipping. They rank around mid-table for significant attacking data points whilst also ranking the second worst for attempts on goal (55) and joint third worst for shots on target (16).

The best attacking options

The standout option in the Brentford front line is without a doubt Ivan Toney (£7.7m). The striker has managed 15 goals and three assists in his current campaign so far. Not only does he take his teams penalties but Toney also ranks way above all of his offensive teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement.

The second best attacking asset from Brentford is striker Bryan Mbeumo (£5.8m). He ranks second amongst his attacking teammates for non penalty expected goal involvement (2.56) in the last six matches. Mbeumo has also collected two returns in the same period including one double-digit return.

The Brentford defence

This season Brentford rank amongst best seven teams for goals conceded (32) and big chances conceded (41). However they also rank the third worst team for total shots conceded (361) and the worst team in the league for shots on target conceded (133).

In the last six matches Brentford also rank the joint best for goals conceded (four), the joint third best for clean sheets kept (three) and joint third best for big chances conceded (seven).

The best defensive options

The standout option in the Brentford defence is goalkeeper David Raya (£4.8m) who ranks as the second highest scoring goalkeeper in FPL (109 points) and has already picked up eight clean sheets this season. Some could go for full-back Rico Henry (£4.5m).

Henry ranks above all of his defensive teammates for expected goal involvement in the last six matches. Other managers could opt for central-backs Ben Mee (£5.1m) and Ethan Pinnock (£4.4m), the latter scored in his most recent game.
