Fernandes’ appeal is further boosted by the underlying numbers.
His 19 shots in the last four Gameweeks were more than any other player in Fantasy.
A home encounter with West Bromwich Albion could revive the output of Son Heung-min (£9.7m).
The Tottenham Hotspur star has only one assist in his last five outings.
However, West Brom have struggled defensively since the arrival of Sam Allardyce. They have conceded 26 goals in nine matches under their head coach.
Son, meanwhile, has recorded four of his last five double-figure returns at home.
There are also a number of cut-price front men worth considering for the armband.
Callum Wilson (£6.8m) has also stepped up his output ahead of Newcastle United's home meeting with Southampton.
The Newcastle striker has two goals, two assists and 23 points in his last three appearances.
Two goals and three assists in the last four Gameweeks have earned him 150,000 transfers in and made Antonio the most-bought forward ahead of Gameweek 23.
