So now let's take a look at the best players who should undoubtedly be either your Captain or Vice-Captain in your FPL side for Game week 17.
Jack Grealish, Aston Villa £6.1
Engish midfielder Jack Grealish's last four games opposite Newcastle, Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester have been impressive with an average of just under six points per round. The Aston Villa captain is literally an engine on the wings and will look to add to his goals and assist tally of four each, after the weekend's game against Sheffield United. With easy fixtures against Southampton, Norwich and Watford up next Grealish would surely be a man with assists or even a few goals which would also raise his price tag simultaneously. A great buy at £6.1.
Tammy Abraham, Chelsea £7.9
Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham made a stellar comeback midweek with the Champions League game and has now scored in each of his last 3 appearances at Stamford Bridge, in all competitions. The 22-year-old striker has been instrumental in creating 13 big chances at home in Premier League matches this season; more than any other player. Chelsea scored just 11 goals during those games but only Liverpool (30) and Man City (33) have created more than the Blues 29 big chances during home matches. How can you miss Tammy Oh Boy!
Jamie Vardy, Leicester City £10.1
If you are ignorant you surely do not have the man in form Jamie Vardy in your FPL team. The England international is the most picked FPL player with 66% of voters opting for the Leicester City Striker. Vardy enjoyed scoring a brace against Aston Villa last weekend and made it 8 consecutive games where the in-form man has found the back of the net and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. The 32-year-old ranks top for creating chances with (8), shots inside the box (16) and shots on target (10) in the last 4 Gameweeks.
