It’s the final edition of the Fantasy Premier League GW8 Wildcard series and here we have the top five forwards to look at if the Wildcard chip is out and ready to be played this weekend
The summer 2021 transfer window was extremely interesting in terms of the striker situation in the Premier League.
The Harry Kane to Manchester City saga publicly rumbled on for long before fizzling out and leaving Kane to refocus under new management at Spurs while City ended up without buying a recognised striker to replace the outgoing Sergio Aguero.
Italian Serie A champion Romelu Lukaku joined Chelsea and Serie A golden boot winner Cristiano Ronaldo completed a stunning return to Old Trafford meaning the Premier League has arguably never been blessed with more elite forward options to pick in the past 5 years.
“Forward” spots on Fantasy Premier League are limited to just 3 making it very important to pick optimally with value, fixtures and underlying metrics all coming into consideration. There are my favourite Forward picks for GW8 Wildcard squads
