Averaging 0.59 goals per 90 and 0.89 attacking returns per 90, he’s one of the most in form players in the league.
He’s also scored from 27% of his shots, including 80% of his efforts on target.
This weekend he faces bottom club Norwich, a promising fixture for all attackers, and was given a rest in midweek against Sunderland so he’ll be fresh to start in GW19.
- Picked by: 4%
- Price: £4.7m
- Fixtures: Southampton (H), Watford (a), Crystal Palace (a)
Having only started 11 times in the league, Coufal has regained his place as first choice full-back.
The Czech international has two assists and is level with teammate Aaron Cresswell for non-penalty xG + xA (1.8), despite Cresswell being on set pieces.
He has also made 2.51 shot-creating actions per 90 and 0.27 goal-creating actions per 90, offering attacking impetus from out wide.
West Ham face Southampton and Watford next, who both rank in the bottom half for goals scored this campaign.
- Picked by: 2%
- Price: £4.6m
- Fixtures: Chelsea (H), Leeds (a), Brentford (a)

Taking 17 shots he’s had the third most efforts in the team, averaging an attempt every 53 minutes.
This week he faces an injury hit Chelsea, before facing Leeds, who’ve conceded 16 goals in their last four games, and Brentford.
- Picked by: 0%
- Price: £4.5m
- Fixtures: Burnley (a), Newcastle (H), Brighton (H)
Update: The GW19 Burnley vs Everton fixture has been postponed.
Gordon is a regular starter costing just £4.5m, playing 5 of the last 7 matches from the start.
His two goal-creating actions and 17 shot-creating actions are encouraging ahead of a decent run of fixtures, with Calvert-Lewin returning soon too, who will convert more chances than Rondon.
Additionally, he’s had four shots in the box in the past 6 games as well as 0.9 key passes per 90 this term overall.
He’s less than 1% owned before fixtures against Burnley and Newcastle, with a trip to Norwich on the horizon in GW22 to consider as well.
While Gordon is far from a standout pick, Everton now go on a run of excellent fixtures.
