Best forwards to pick in Gameweek 37 Our watchlist

We will look at forwards from every price point: budget enablersmidpriced picks and premium options.

Budget forwards to pick in Gameweek 37 (4.5m – 7m)

Joao Pedro (5.2m, Brighton) – 3/10

Verdict: Buy if you are looking for budget forward who has double gameweek in GW37

  • good option for managers who will bench boost in GW37
  • one of key players for Brighton this season
  • on penalties
  • but you must be prepared the he might get 1 benchins until the end of the season – however, he expect him to start at least one DGW37 game, and the other from the bench.


Jackson (6.9m, Chelsea) – 5/10

Verdict: Buy

  • fixtures are good for Chelsea
  • he is slowly racking up fantasy points
  • but he can be frustrating FPL asset to own as he needs a lot of chances to score


Hojlund (7m, Manchester United) – 2.5/10

Verdict: Hold, could be differential pick in double gameweek 37

  • was in pretty good form in the middle of the season, but now he is struggling
  • 8G + 2A this season
  • But if you have Fernandes or Garnacho, your team would be too reliant on Manchester United attack


Mid-priced FPL forwards for Gameweek 37 (7.5m – 8.5m)

Callum Wilson (7.8m, Newcastle) – 6/10

Verdict: Buy if you are looking for some differential

  • only 3% owned
  • back from injury, already with 2G in 3 games
  • but his game time will be managed, so do not expect full minutes in GW37 (more likely one start, on appearance from the bench)
  • proven FPL asset


Isak (8.4m, Newcastle) – 9.5/10

Verdict: Buy

  • second for form among forwards after Haaland
  • 20 goals this season
  • good fixture run for Newcastle and a double gameweek in GW37
  • Wilson is back, so they might share minutes


Watkins (9m, Aston Villa) – 9/10

Verdict: Hold. Aston Villa have no double gameweek, but Watkins is a top scoring forward in the game and fixtures does not really matter with him

  • Talisman and a key goalscorer for his team
  • scored at least 130 FPL points on each of the previous 3 seasons
  • Can get FPL points regularly
  • He is not very explosive but can slowly rack up FPL points
  • not on penalties anymore
  • Watkins has 36 attacking returns from just 19.6 xGI (big overperformance) 


Premium FPL forwards to pick in Gameweek 37 (9m – 14.5m)

Haaland (14.1m, Manchester City) – 10/10

Verdict: Buy

  • Haaland is most likely to win Golden Boot in 2023/24 according to bookies’ odds
  • Top for xGI from all players this season
  • A top-scoring player from the previous season
  • Captaincy option in every game regardless of the fixture
  • The most expensive player in the game
  • His form was on the decline at the end of last season


Tips for picking the best forwards for your FPL team

  • If you pick premium forwards, make sure he is also a good captaincy option.

How many points should you expect from your forwards in Fantasy Premier League?

Do not have unrealistic expectations from your FPL forwards.

  • Usually, the top-scoring forwards can get around 180-230 points per season (on some occasions even more, but this is the realistic expectation from premium FPL forwards) – that is 4.7 – 6 points per match
  • Good mid-priced FPL forwards (usually 6.5m – 9m range) can get approximately 130-160 points per season, so expect around 3.4 – 5 points per match on average
  • Budget forwards can get around 90 – 110 points per season = 2.4 – 2.9 points per match
  • The points of midfielders and forwards usually came in waves or in clusters – so the run of “form” can be followed with a run of blanks.

How are forwards awarded points in FPL?

The majority of FPL points for forwards go through goals – 4 points – and assists – 3 points – that’s their main source of points.

And usually, when FPL forwards register two attacking returns, he is more likely to earn bonus points as well.

One thought on “Best FPL Forwards to consider in Gameweek 37

  1. hello, I just read your articles about the best players in every position, which says buy hold sell, etc
    but now I am confused about something maybe you can help me with it
    if you mention a player to BUY, but at the same time to buy that player I’ll have to sell a player that you say HOLD, so in this situation what should I do?
    i only sell the players that you suggest to SELL only?
    And what about the players you don’t mention at all either buy or sell or hold, that means I shouldn’t have them at all?
