The best Rashford replacements in FPL

We take a look at the best Rashford replacements in FPL. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area, we can utilise its amazing fixture ticker and underlying stats to draw up a list of the best suitors to replace Rashford.

As we edge closer to an important part of the season managers will be looking for ways to gain rank or an edge over their mini-league rival. One of the ways we can do this is by finding the best Rashford replacements in FPL.

Rashford’s injury

Below is an official update regarding the injury of Marcus Rashford. Some managers within the community believe this indicates he could be out for several Gameweeks. For that reason, it could be wise to replace Rashford within our fantasy teams.

Fixtures

Below we can see the fixture ticker which orders teams at the top with the best fixtures all of the way down to teams at the bottom with the worst fixtures. This could help to aid us in our quest to find the perfect replacement for Rashford.

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool rank first on the ticker from now until the end of the season. This suggests they have better fixtures than any other team. They play in blank Gameweek 32 whilst also doubling in Gameweek 34. The standout option for the run-in is Mohamed Salah (£12.8m).

In his last six Gameweeks amongst all players Salah ranks joint second for goals (five), joint third for attempts on goal (22), joint second for shots in the box (20) and joint second for big chances total (seven). There is a huge chance managers won’t be able to make the straight swap between Rashford and Salah and it could take a minus four to get there.

Andreas Periera

From one extreme to another in terms of cost we head to Fulham. The promoted side sit just behind Liverpool on the season ticker. They have a match scheduled for blank Gameweek 32, double in Gameweek 34 and also have some great fixtures in and around those Gameweeks.

Andreas Pereira comes in at just £4.3m. This means that not only is it an easy straight swap between him and Rashford but its also means managers who make the move will have plenty of money spare to make squad upgrades. Pereira plays in an advanced role, takes set pieces and takes penalties.

Michael Olise

Crystal Palace rank third the fixture ticker from now until the end of the season. Although they do not have a double Gameweek they face a fixture in blank Gameweek 32. They also play some of the worst defences in the league in their run ahead.

Since Roy Hodgson has taken over, there have been some significant improvements within the team, especially in attack. In fact, since Hodgson has been in charge they rank third for goals scored (seven), first for goals scored in the box (five) and joint fourth for attempts on goal (47).

One player who has benefitted from his teams uptake in form is Michel Olise (£5.4m). The winger bagged a 14-point haul in his most recent game reflecting his potential. The move from Rashford to Olise would be an easy one as well as leaving owners with plenty of change to spend.

Kaoru Mitoma

Brighton rank eight on the ticker. They face a game against Chelsea in the round ahead, blank in Gameweek 32, double in Gameweek 34 but then have the potential to double in Gameweek 36 and Gameweek 37.

Amongst all teams in the last six Gameweeks Brighton rank joint third for goals scored (13), first for attempts on goal (112) and first for shots on target (41). The standout Brighton attacker is Kaoru Mitoma (£5.7m) who has managed seven returns in his last 10 matches. The switch from Rashford to Mitoma is an easy one and gives managers more money to invest elsewhere.

Jack Grealish

Manchester City play Leicester next, blank in Gameweek 32, double in Gameweek 34 and then have a very likely chance of doubling again in Gameweek 37. Their motivation to chase down Arsenal in top spot will be rife. This gives their assets even more appeal.

Maintaining some of the best offensive stats in the league this season it could be a great move to bring in an additional attacker other than the obvious Erling Haaland. Jack Grealish (£7.1m) has been solidifying his minutes in the first team. Not just that but his output is also improving after back-to-back 12-point hauls in his last two matches.
