Fantasy Football Goal Threat: What Fantasy Premier League players were the most threatening last weekend

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 at 3:04 pm by Paul Caffrey

To follow on from our popular article  on creative players last weekend we have turned our focus to the fantasy premier league players with the most direct attacking threat.

The main aim of this article is to ascertain which players are on the cusp of scoring a number of goals and which players scoring is likely to continue.

Looking back at round 16 of the Irish Times Fantasy Premier League we have a clear leader on front of goal in the form of the Spaniard Michu.

The Swansea midfielder who played in behind Graham at home to Norwich last weekend scored two goals from eight attempts on goal. The bargain of the season who has transitioned from La Liga seamlessly also had 24 passes in the final third and played one through ball.

The next most attempts on goal in round 16 of the Premier League was a total of 5 with Van Persie, Tevez, Ba and Osman on the list. These players are playing well and should be kept in your fantasy football team if you have them.

The most resounding comment from last weekend was that Mancini should have started Tevez and his impact on the game backs that up with his attempts and assist.

Some standout performers who had four attempts on goal last week included James McCarthy, Fernando Torres and Puncheon who all scored with the first two players picking up a brace.


Sterling and Anita showed real attacking threat and picked up an assist along the way which is some consolation for the managers who backed them.

Some players unlucky not to get on the score-sheet including Benteke, Berbatov and Matthew Taylor who all had four attempts on goal last weekend but didn’t register a goal.
