We look at who had the best stats in Gameweek 13. Using the Fantasy Football Scout members area, we take a look at some of the players that topped the key attacking stats from the latest round in FPL. Stats will include underlying data points like shots on target, chances created and other important stats to give us an indication of which players did well.
Looking at who had the best stats in Gameweek 13 can indicate which players did well. Even if the players who topped the stats didn’t return any points. This can be a good sign that the players were close to returning. FPL managers are always on the lookout for assets that could potentially return in the future. This could help with that.
Fulham continue to impress from their return to the Premier League. One of the players contributing to that great form is Andres Pereira (£4.6m). The midfielder has been a popular bench option this season in FPL. His fantastic price-tag and offensive ability have been a huge factor in why he is owned by over a quarter of the game base.
Amongst all players in the league in Gameweek 13 he was ranked, joint third for crosses (seven), first for successful crosses (five), joint third for chances created (four) and joint first for big chances created (two). Those fantastic stats were rewarded. Andreas came away with a huge 10-point return. FPL managers could even consider starting him moving forward.
Liverpool have been well below their usual high standard this season. That poor form has affected their defensive assets. Another player that has struggled this campaign is Andy Robertson (£6.7m). The Scotsman has only managed two FPL returns all season. The defender has now returned from injury.
Amongst all players in the league in Gameweek 13, Robertson ranks joint first for crosses (10), joint second for successful crosses (four) and joint fourth for chances created (three). His stats were great, but Robertson failed to convert those stats into FPL points.
Wolves have really struggled to maintain any consistency this season. In fact, they have only scored two goals in their last six matches. The lack of goals meant Wolves needed a goal scorer. This led to the purchase of former Chelsea player Diego Costa.
Amongst all players in Gameweek 13, Costa was ranked first for attempts on goal (eight), first for attempts in the box (eight) and first for headed attempts on goal (four). Costa did provide some great stats this week. However, Costa also failed to convert those chances. This meant the striker picked up just two points in FPL.
Newcastle’s fantastic start to the season continues. They currently sit fourth in the Premier League. A large factor to this is manager Eddie Howe. With a huge turn around on last season, Howe has also managed to inject new spirit into previous flop Miguel Almiron (5.4m). Almiron did start the season slow. However, he has now picked up returns in four of his previous five matches
Amongst all players in the league in Gameweek 13, Almiron ranks second for attempt on goal (six) and joint second for attempts in the box (five). The attacker made good on those stats. Almiron picked up his second back-to-back 10-point return in a row. His points came from his goal and three bonus.
