FPL Transfer Of The Week: Gameweek 16 | Fantasy Premier League 2018-19
The player with the potential to gain the highest number of points in the upcoming week is picked as the "Transfer of the Week". This week's transfer of the week is Tottenham Hotspur captain, Harry Kane.
So why Harry Kane?
#1 Seems to be in strong form, and is highly motivated.
#2 Will face a less competitive club in the upcoming fixture.
#3 Needs to score to secure vital points for the club in their quest to finish in the top 4 and secure their place in the UEFA Champions League.
The second favourite pick for the upcoming gameweek was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Both Kane and Aubameyang have scored a decent amount of points till now, and will be facing less stiff competition in the upcoming weeks. However, Aubameyang fell short due to his inconsistency.
It is possible Emery would pick Lacazette over Aubameyang in their upcoming match against Huddersfield.
Witnessing Kane's phenomenal performance in the World Cup, FPL managers were keen to make him part of their squads. However, his performance at the start of the campaign failed to impress his fans. His 8th league match against Cardiff FC left the managers utterly disappointed, as he was unable to score.
However, Kane has been consistent in his recent matches, either scoring goals or providing assists since the last 4 gameweeks.
Spurs will face Leicester City in their next fixture, and Leicester's defence appears disintegrated due to the absence of their prime defender, Harry Maguire.
Harry Kane would definitely grab this opportunity, and is likely to score against Leicester, which makes him the ideal pick this week. Other than that, fans expect Kane to give his best in order to finish at the top of the table, or at the very least qualify for the Champions League.
He is 3rd on the forward table, with 85 points, and comes at a price tag of £12.4.
