Firstly, forwards score goals. Secondly, goals lead to points. As a result, it’s important that your attacking line is right. Here are 5 to consider when choosing your Fantasy Football forwards.
5. Rodrigo (Leeds)
Leeds have finally returned to the top flight. Led by Marco Bielsa, they’ll be hoping to show what the League has been missing. Accordingly, Bielsa has brought in Spanish striker Rodrigo to bolster the attack. Signed from Valencia, he is a proven goalscorer. For £6 million, he’s a worthy inclusion. Bielsa’s tactics will set up the team favorably. Rodrigo should profit from this.

4. Timo Werner (Chelsea)
Likewise, Werner joins the Premier League this season. Lampard signed the much sought-after striker from RB Leipzig for £48 million. In Fantasy Football, he’ll cost you £9.5 million. Chelsea have added a plethora of attacking options this summer. Werner will no doubt rack up points as a result.
3. Raúl Jiménez (Wolves)
A reliable contributor among Premier League forwards. The Mexican played in all 38 League games last season. This yielded 17 goals and 7 assists. With this in mind, £8.5 million is a modest price tag. Apart from Man City in Gameweek 2, Wolves have a kind opening schedule where he could score early points.
2. Jamie Vardy (Leicester)
Last season’s top scorer. It’ll cost a cool £10 million to avail of his services. Being 33 has not slowed Vardy down. His form has Leicester back among the top teams competing for Europe. Equally as important, he has a decent team around him. When you’re in the market for marquee forwards, you could do worse than to add this prolific scorer.
1. Harry Kane (Spurs)
Finally, Mourinho’s main man is a Fantasy Football favourite. After a long injury last season, the England striker will make up for lost time. 18 goals in 29 games makes you wonder what a full season would have meant for him. He’ll cost you £10.5 million of your £100 million budget. When spending this big you want to be sure you’ll get the points. However, Mourinho has his team built around his talisman.
