FPL 2023-24 – Best forwards £6.5m or less


As the start of the 2023-24 Fantasy Premier League season draws ever closer, we take a look at the wide range of players available for FPL managers to purchase, picking out some excellent value options in all positions.

In this article, we focus on the best budget forwards who are available at £6.5m or less.

Evan Ferguson (£6.5m) – Brighton
Although he played just 942 minutes in the Premier League last season, Brighton forward Evan Ferguson was one of the standout players among the Seagulls since Roberto De Zerbi arrived at the club. An ankle injury prevented him from gaining even more matchtime, but he ended the campaign with ten goals in all competitions, six of those coming in the league. With a full pre-season behind him and playing in a side renowned from its attacking prowess under De Zerbi, the Republic of Ireland international has all the tools to be among the top scorers in 2023-24, boasting power, speed and a substantial aerial threat. A fantasy price-tag of £6.0m could wind up being a bargain.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0m) – Everton
Everton’s Calvert-Lewin has shown significant FPL credentials in the past, but has fallen off the fantasy radar of many after dropping off over the past couple of seasons. Injuries have hampered the 26-year-old, who recorded 16 goals, six assists and 165 FPL points back in the 2020-21 campaign. However, Sean Dyche is desperate for some attacking firepower within his Everton frontline and a fully-fit Calvert-Lewin could be that man. Whilst his fitness is to be monitored closely leading up to Gameweek One, any FPL manager looking for a proven Premier League goalscorer at a cheap cost should afford serious consideration towards the Everton striker.

Carlton Morris (£5.5m) – Luton
If newly-promoted Luton are to stay in the Premier League this season, they’ll need forward Carlton Morris to make a successful transition into top flight football and score goals as regularly as he did in the Championship. In 2022-23, Morris managed 20 goals in the English second tier, mainly playing as part of a front two with Elijah Adebayo, who netted eight goals in comparison. The aerial power of Morris makes him a huge threat from set pieces and he’ll back himself to bully defenders on the small, compact pitch at Kenilworth Road. From an FPL perspective, often forwards coming up from the Championship wind up being lucrative fantasy assets such as Charlie Austin, Ivan Toney and Aleksandar Mitrovic. Morris could fall into the same bracket.
