FPL Draft expert Neal Thurman is tipping Leeds attacker for success over upcoming period

Neal Thurman's analysis of top targets for Fantasy Premier League Draft managers concludes with a look at forwards.

For the other articles in this series, there were plenty of potentially useful players to choose from and we focused on the ones most likely to be productive.

But in this instalment, the challenge was trying to find a few forwards who might present any meaningful value over the next five or six Gameweeks.

Forwards to target 
Rodrigo (LEE)

The Leeds United forward is expected to recover from illness following the international break.

Marcelo Bielsa's side have a promising schedule ahead and Rodrigo has started more often than not when available, producing a goal and an assist in his last three appearances. Not a slam dunk, but at least potential value.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid (FUL)

Fulham haven't scored a lot and De Cordova-Reid's playing time has been sporadic, so consider this more to do with the eye test than any great statistical trend.

I don't see De Cordova-Reid as the next Dominic Calvert-Lewin or anything like that but in a market with few available forwards, he has at least looked like he has had a chance to be productive when I've watched him in recent weeks.

Karlan Grant (WBA)

Speaking of sides who don't score a great deal, West Bromwich Albion are struggling mightily in front of goal.

My interest in Grant is partially due to the eye test and also due to his great record in the Championship before his arrival at The Hawthorns.

Again, there's some talent underlying this choice which gives some hope for the end of your bench.
