FPL Show: Form and fixtures make Vardy a must-have

15 Nov 2019

Fantasy expert believes Leicester forward should be nailed-on selection ahead of favourable run of matches

With eight goals in his last six Gameweeks, Jamie Vardy (£9.6m) is Fantasy Premier League's hottest asset going into Gameweek 13.

The Leicester City forward is now the top points scorer in the game and more than 300,000 managers have signed him ahead of a run of fixtures that looks favourable for the Foxes.

Ten of their next 12 matches score three or less in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings, with all of their next five scoring only two.

"You look at the Leicester team and you see points coming all over the pitch but the one place you know you're going to get them is up front with Vardy," FPL expert Gianni Buttice says in the latest FPL Show. "He's nailed on."

And with Vardy currently on a points-per-match average of 7.6, he is on course to smash his best-ever FPL season of 211 points in 2015/16.

"He possibly won't be able to maintain that strike rate but I think the goals will still flow," Buttice said. "I like that fact that Vardy's always fresh.

"He's not playing for England but also he's not playing in Europe. So midweeks, he's off."
