Here we rank the top forty Forwards, featuring the elite goal-scoring Premier League machines! As outlined in our Fantasy EPL Draft Strategy Guide, Forwards should be your top priority. Drafting an elite Forward in the first round, followed by some good or decent players to support them will put you in a good position! These rankings are based on the Togga Scoring system.

Forward Fantasy EPL Draft Rankings

Top 10 Rankings
We’re kicking off the Forward Draft Rankings with the big guns! Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling are pretty much in a class of their own. If you’re drafting first or second its a no-brainer to pick either one of these Chaps. Around 15 points per game last season is just terrific!
Harry Kane is ranked third – he had a bit of a disappointing season last time around, but if he’s fully fit for the whole season, he’s going to score extremely well! Sergio Aguero comes in fourth after one of his best-ever campaigns with City last season. The Argentinian continually proves he’s one of the best strikers to ever grace the Premier League. To complete the ‘Big Six Forwards’ we’ve got Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Both of these Chaps played very well last season and are in for very good seasons once again. You can’t go wrong with any of these six players in the first round!
The complete the Top 10 we’ve got Roberto Firmino, Marcus Rashford, Alexandre Lacazette, and new Arsenal man Pepe. It’s pretty hard to separate these players, as all have potential to end the season with an average score around the 10/11 per game mark. Rashford is perhaps the most exciting from this bunch though. The Manchester United forward looks set to lead the line for the Red Devils this season! Hopefully Pepe lives up to his £72 million price tage!
11 to 20 Rankings
Son Heung-min and Jamie Vardy kick off the next group of players. Vardy ended last season with a bang! If he can keep his form going, he’ll be a great asset this season. Raul Jimenez, Wilfried Zaha and Callum Wilson are up next. These three Forwards are hard to separate, but all three will serve you well as a second FWD for the upcoming Fantasy EPL season.
A couple of new signings up next. Everton’s Italian striker Moise Kean is 16th. And new West ham man Sebastien Haller is ranked 17th. Now that Arnautovic has departed, Haller will be the main man for The Hammers after signing in a club-record deal. Next up is another new signing; Leicester City man AyozePerez. The Spaniard has done well in recent seasons despite playing for an average Newcastle side. He should be able to increase his points scoring this season!
Joshua King and Richarlison complete the Top 20.
21 to 30 Rankings
Now, this is where things start to get tough in the Forwards Draft Rankings!
Troy Deeney and Anthony Martial are ranked 21st and 22nd.
Gerard Deulofeu is up next after a great end to last season with Watford. The inconsistent Spaniard finally found some steady points scoring during the second half of last season. Danny Ings is up 24th; he’ll be a good draft signing if he can maintain his health this season. Chelsea’s Willian is ranked 25th, despite having a points per game average of 10.47 last season. If he can solidify his place in the side under Lampard, he’ll be a great addition. Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi could be the preferred wide options for The Blues, though.
Norwich City star Teemu Pukki is ranked 26th after ending last season as the Championship top scorer. Pukki is a very talented footballer and he should score well on Fantrax this season. Burnley youngster Dwight McNeil comes in next after averaging 9.31 points per game last season. Hopefully, McNeil will be able to replicate these points-scoring abilities during his first full Premier League season. Manchester City man Leroy Sane is ranked a lowly 28th, as he could be leaving to join Bayern Munich. Worth taking a chance on him towards the mid-rounds of the draft.
Christian Benteke should lead the line for Crystal Palace this season, so we’ve ranked him 29th based on his points per 90 potential. Chris Wood completes the Top 30.
31 to 40 Rankings
Joelinton and Callum Hudson-Odoi complete are next up. Hudson-Odoi is one to watch out for; he should return from injury around September time. Ashley Barnes is ranked 33rd. The Burnley man did very well at times last season, providing Fantrax managers with some good consistent points. Tammy Abraham comes in 34th. The Chelsea central striker position is very much up for grabs, but we think Abraham has the best chance of making this spot his own. The young striker performed very well in the Championship last season, and Lampard knows all about him. Premier League New Signings Wesley, Bill Sharp, and Che Adams also feature in this group of players.
Big name Gabriel Jesus concludes the Forward Draft Rankings. This Chap will do well if he can establish himself in the City starting eleven. That’s a HUGE if though. Take a punt on him at the end of the draft if he is still a free agent.
Alexis Sanchez and Andriy Yarmolenko were bumped off the rankings to accommodate Pepe and Kean.
