Top 4 Best Forwards in FPL History

There’s nothing better than arranging an FPL league with a few of your mates (or even your colleagues) and coming out on top. But for that, you need at least one top forward.

The Best Forwards Ever in FPL

As we know, Fantasy Premier League (FPL) has captivated football fans worldwide, providing them with the opportunity to manage their virtual teams and compete against friends and rivals.

Strikers play a pivotal role in accumulating points, making them crucial assets for managers, especially with goals and assists still leading the scoreboard in terms of impact and importance.

In this article, we unveil the top five highest-scoring strikers between 2010 and 2023, highlighting their contributions and incredible numbers during that period in this fantasy world.

Spoiler alert: you may have heard of some of these names before. Maybe…

Sergio Agüero (1600+ points)

The man who gave me the worst moment of my young life.

Yes, I’m a Manchester United fan.

Argentine maestro Sergio Agüero stands tall as one of the highest-scoring strikers in history, dominating the FPL realm with his clinical finishing and consistent goal-scoring prowess.

Agüero’s tally of over 1600 FPL points from 2010 to 2023 solidifies his status as a fantasy football legend, with memorable performances and multiple hat-tricks earning him a place in the hearts of managers worldwide, as well as the odd pivotal goal to claim precious titles for Manchester City.

Having said that, a certain Norwegian is en route to hunting down his numbers.

Harry Kane (1400+ points)

His current Bayern numbers might take him ahead of Sergio!

Tottenham Hotspur’s talismanic striker Harry Kane has been a fantasy football revelation, amassing over 1400 FPL points during the period from 2010 to 2023.

Renowned for his deadly finishing, aerial dominance, and playmaking ability, Kane has consistently delivered for managers, providing a reliable source of points season after season with his goal-scoring exploits and all-around contributions on the pitch.

There’s seldom been a more well-rounded forward in the history of FPL.

Jamie Vardy (1300+ points)

That incredible Leicester City Premier League win changed everything for Jamie Hardy.

En route to that 5000-1 fairytale, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has defied the odds to become one of the highest-scoring strikers in FPL history, earning over 1300 points between 2010 and 2023.

Vardy’s meteoric rise from non-league obscurity to Premier League stardom has been reflected in his performances, with his blistering pace, relentless work rate, and clinical finishing making him a fantasy football favorite among managers seeking consistent points up front.

It may have tailed off a bit towards the end, as Leicester succumbed to their struggles when relegated last year. But there isn’t a Fox around who wouldn’t have Vardy leading their FPL lineup.

Even if he’s on the bench.

Mohamed Salah (1200+ points… so far)

The only current FPL forward on this list… but for how much longer?

Liverpool’s Egyptian sensation Mohamed Salah has made a significant impact on FPL with his goal-scoring exploits and attacking flair, accumulating over 1200 FPL points over the last decade – which is incredibly impressive when you consider he hasn’t even been there for that long!

Salah’s ability to find the back of the net with remarkable consistency, coupled with his creativity and versatility in the final third, has made him a must-have pick for FPL managers seeking a high-scoring striker to lead their virtual teams to glory.


In the dynamic world of Fantasy Premier League, forwards are beyond.

Where choosing the wrong one can make or break your team.

Nowadays, everybody and their dog is young to be choosing Erling Haaland, but there are a number of relatively less heralded names breaking into the fore e.g. Watkins and Dominic Solanke.

But in their heyday, these strikers mentioned here were an FPL manager’s dream!

Which of these forwards were your favourite to pick during this time?
