Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen (£8.7m) ranks among the most creative midfielders over the last six Gameweeks, according to the ICT Index, sealing his status as a major target Fantasy Premier League managers.
Significantly for FPL managers the Dane is set to benefit from a promising Spurs run-in. They play 10 fixtures over the remaining nine Gameweeks, seven of which score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).
Along with team-mate Dele Alli (£8.9m), Eriksen is among the top three most-bought midfielders over the international break, with 25,000+ transferring him in so far.

Barkley’s impressive underlying statistics translate to four assists over his last six matches. But managers will be concerned that back-to-back trips to Liverpool and Manchester United in the next two Gameweeks may mean he will struggle to maintain that output.
Sigurdsson also benefits from a strong spell of fixtures, with six of Swansea’s remaining nine matches scoring no more than two in the FDR.
That offers him a platform to maintain his consistency: he has delivered attacking returns in eight of his 10 Gameweek appearances under Paul Clement.
Owned by only 3.3% of FPL managers, the Spaniard featured in only four fixtures in the previous six Gameweeks, yet still produced two goals and an assist, creating more chances (13) than any team-mate.
Pedro (£7.2m) offers an alternative to more expensive Chelsea team-mates, Eden Hazard (£10.2m) and Diego Costa (£10.7m), for a run-in that offers the leaders 10 matches over the nine Gameweeks, starting with Crystal Palace at home in Gameweek 30.
The Spaniard delivered two goals and as many assists in five outings across the last six Gameweeks, with 11 key passes ranking top for Antonio Conte's side.
Playing in a central-support role in a 4-2-3-1 formation, Tadic has produced a goal and three assists in three appearances during our featured spell.
Tadic, who delivered eight goals and 13 assists in 2015/16, is also set to featured in 11 matches over the remaining nine Gameweeks.
With just 1.7% ownership in FPL, he could emerge as a key differential, particularly if Manolo Gabbiadini (£6.9m) fails to recover from a groin problem that forced him off against Spurs in Sunday’s Gameweek 29 defeat.
