FPL GW6 Transfer Tips: Who Are the Best Picks?

There is another quick turnaround for FPL GW6, which will hopefully be another full of goals.

24 were scored across the Tuesday/Wednesday fixtures, with City and Arsenal assets doing particularly well.

At the moment the game is very template because of the low pricing, but some of these assets can help you deviate from the norm and reap the rewards.

Best Players to Transfer In for FPL GW6

Ivan Toney

  • Price: £7.1m
  • Picked by: 15%
  • Fixtures: Leeds (H), Southampton (a), Arsenal (H)

Toney has started the season well, scoring twice, including every shot on target, and getting two assists.

He’s a creative forward, often acting as a target man for Brentford, which shows in his 1.4 xA (9th highest).

To add to his reliability as an FPL asset is the fact he’s on penalties, scoring 5 last term (second most).

The Bees have two good fixtures next, Leeds and Southampton, before a tough game facing top-of-the-table Arsenal.

However, there is hope as Brentford did beat the Gunners last season at home, 2-0 in GW1.

Note: If you opt to transfer in Toney, do so once his price falls to £7.1m.

Alexander Isak

  • Price: £7.0m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (H), West Ham (a), Bournemouth (H)

What an introduction to the Premier League. Newcastle’s £60m record signing scored 38 minutes into his debut, at Anfield no less.

Isak was scoring roughly one goal in three games throughout his Sociedad career and last season had the 9th highest xG per 90 in La Liga (0.5) and the 10th highest non-penalty xG (8.6).

He also had 32 shots on target, averaging 1.4 per 90 (6th most).

With Wilson injured, he could get a long run in the side, during which Newcastle have decent fixtures. Four of their next 5 opponents have an FDR of 2.

Adam Webster

  • Price: £4.5m
  • Picked by: 1%
  • Fixtures: Leicester (H), Bournemouth (a), Crystal Palace (H)

Webster is part of a solid Brighton defence. The Seagulls have kept three clean sheets so far this season and have the fourth-fewest shots conceded per game (10.8).

The defender also has the highest xGI out of the Brighton defenders (0.6) and is also their cheapest starter at £4.5m.

In their next three games, there’s a realistic chance of a clean sheet in all of them, before facing Liverpool and then Spurs.

But Brighton performed well against the big 6 last season, taking 13 points off them in total.

Neco Williams

  • Price: £4.1m
  • Picked by: 28%
  • Fixtures: Bournemouth (H), Leeds (a), Fulham (H)

Neco Williams has shown his quality early on in his Forest career. The Welsh international is ranked second for xGI out of defenders this campaign (2).

He’s also ranked second for both creativity and threat in FPL’s indexes out of all the defenders in the game, including putting 5 crosses into the box (third most).

Forest so far haven’t been great defensively, conceding 11 (second most), but 6 of those were against City, who will batter many more teams this season.

At £4.1m there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have him.
