A goal against Tottenham Hotspur continued Adama Traore's (£5.2m) impressive season in Fantasy Premier League.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers winger earned 10 points in the 2-1 home defeat on Sunday, his second double-digit return of 2019/20.

Costing only £5.2m, Traore has been a standout source of value in FPL. He has three goals, three assists and 65 points.

Indeed, his 12.5 points per million (ppm) is second only to the 13.0ppm of Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) among FPL midfielders.

Traore takes his place in a Dream Team line-up that scored 127 points in Gameweek 17.

Gameweek 17 Dream Team
Aaron Ramsdale (BOU) £4.6m

He made five saves and was awarded the maximum three bonus points in AFC Bournemouth's 1-0 win at Chelsea. Ramsdale is now the joint-top scoring goalkeeper in FPL on 70 points.

John Lundstram (SHU) £5.2m; 11pts

An assist and a clean sheet at home to Aston Villa earned Sheffield United's Lundstram his fourth double-digit return of the season. Now up to 48.3 per cent ownership, he is the top-scoring defender in FPL on 89 points

Jan Vertonghen (TOT) £5.2m; 10pts

His winner at Wolves earned the Spurs defender his second successive Dream Team appearance. Vertonghen has produced 21 of his 35 points for the season in the last two Gameweeks.

Fabian Balbuena (WHU) £4.3m; 8pts

His defensive display was decisive for West Ham United in their 1-0 win at Southampton. Balbuena made 17 clearances, blocks and interceptions to earn his Dream Team debut.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.3m; 19pts

An advanced role against Arsenal helped the Manchester City playmaker to his highest haul of the season. De Bruyne scored twice and supplied an assist to climb to the top of the FPL midfield standings on 116 points.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.2m; 16pts

Moved up front for Liverpool's home match with Watford, Salah scored both his side's goals in a 2-0 win. His average of 7.4 points per match is more than any other FPL midfielder.

John Fleck (SHU) £4.9m; 15pts

Sheffield United's midfielder continued his excellent home form with two goals against Villa. Fleck has 39 points in his last four at Bramall Lane but is now suspended for the Blades' weekend trip to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Adama Traore (WOL) £5.2m; 10pts

The Wolves winger remains a big differential, sitting in only 5.2 per cent of squads.

Raheem Sterling (MCI) £11.8m; 10pts

He was the third most-sold player for Gameweek 17, moved on by 240,000+ managers. Sterling punished their decision with a goal and two bonus points in Man City's win at Arsenal.

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m; 9pts

The Burnley forward's goal proved decisive in a 1-0 home win over Newcastle United. All seven of Wood's goals for the season have come in his last 10 appearances.

Teemu Pukki (NOR) £6.6m; 9pts

His opener at Leicester City extended Pukki's improving run of form. The Norwich City frontman has scored in three of the last four Gameweeks ahead of his side's home encounter with Wolves.
