Picking the best forwards to your EURO Fantasy team

When picking strikers into your EURO Fantasy team, you should consider:

  • Historically, forwards are the best captains in EURO and World Cup Fantasy
  • Make sure you have two great captaincy options among forwards – both who play on different day so you can change your captain if the first one fails to deliver
  • Pick forwards who are in form and have easy fixture – this will allow you to maximize points potential from your captain
  • Consider probabilities when picking forwards. Let bookies any time goalscorer odds to help you with that. You can find them here: EURO Fantasy Goalscoring Odds.
  • Think about structure. For example, you could go:
    • 11m – first captain
    • 11m – backup captain
    • 7m – in-form talisman with an easy fixture

Budget forwards (4.5m – 7m)

Mikautadze (5m, Georgia) – 3/10

  • one of key players for Georgia in Qualifiers where he scored 3 goals
  • added another goal in friendlies before the tournament
  • solid season in Ligue 1 for Metz with 14G + 4A in 22 games
  • however, Georgia is the biggest outsider of all teams – from all teams that qualified, they have the lowest goals scored per game in Qualifiers of all teams (1.5 goals per game)

Scamacca (7m, Italy) – 5/10

  • perfect one week punt solely for MD1 fixture against Albania
  • solid season for Atalanta with 12G + 6A in Serie A

Patrik Schick (7m, Czech Republic) – 4/10

  • a talisman for Czechia, could be an option from MD2 onwards where Czech’s fixtures improve
  • but his last two seasons for Leverskusen was not best (just 10 goals in total in the Bundesliga in the last 2 seasons)
  • had 3 Goals at EURO 2020

Mid priced forwards (7.5m – 9m)

Dobyk (7.5m, Ukraine) – 6/10

  • Girona player was the top scorer in La Liga this season with 24 Goals
  • 2G + 1A in two friendly fixtures before the tournament
  • first 2 Ukraine fixtures are very favorable, so he is perfect option for those who will use limitless in MD3 (as they would transfer him out for tough fixture against Belgium)

Havertz (7.5m, Germany) – 8.5/10

  • amazingly strong second half of the season for Arsenal, let’s see if he can maintain his good form
  • very favorable group for Germany, you should consider some of their attacking players

Hojlund (7.5m, Denmark) – 7/10

  • 7 goals in Qualifiers (only 4 players scored more)
  • good MD1 fixture against Slovenia, he could be nice differential for those building team solely for MD1

Lukaku (9m, Belgium) – 9/10

  • top scorer in Qualifiers with 14 goals
  • good group
  • talisman for Belgium

Premium forwards (9.5m – 11m)

Ronaldo (10m, Portugal) – 9/10

  • with 10 goals second top-scorer in Qualifiers
  • slight worry is his game time, as we saw in World Cup 2022 that his game time was managed in the tournament
  • if you also have Fernandes in the midfield of your fantasy team, you might be too reliant on Portugal getting you points
  • Portugal with most goals scored in Qualifiers (36) of all teams

Kane (11m, England) – 9.5/10

  • main man for England, talisman, on penalties
  • 8G + 2A in Qualifiers
  • Good group
  • 36 goals and 8 assists for Bayern in Bundesliga this season

Mbappe (11m, France) – 10/10

  • talisman for France
  • top scorer in last World Cup with 8G + 2A
