FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 13 Highest Scorers

-

Who stood out from an FPL perspective in Gameweek 13? We take a look!

Marcus Tavernier (£5.4m) – 16 Points
Last gameweek it was familiar faces Mo Salah and Erling Haaland who topped the charts for the highest gameweek score, but this time around it was not a player you typically see raking in the FPL points. Bournemouth’s 1-3 victory at Sheffield Utd included a brace from budget midfielder Marcus Tavernier, who went on to receive three bonus points plus a clean sheet point given that he was brought off the pitch before the Blades’ late consolation goal. Previously, the budget midfielder had only recorded one attacking return this season, so his 16-point haul was certainly an outlier that is unlikely to be repeated.

Willian (£5.3m) – 15 Points
Another budget-friendly midfielder posted a score just one point shy of Tavernier’s total, with veteran winger Willian scoring twice in Fulham’s entertaining 3-2 victory over Wolves on Monday evening. The Brazilian’s most prolific spell in FPL terms was during his time at Chelsea, but Gameweek 13 proved that he could still produce significant point returns. Only 0.4% of FPL managers own the Cottagers star at the time of writing, and with Fulham facing Liverpool at Anfield this coming Sunday, his ownership is unlikely to significantly increase.

Anthony Gordon (£5.9m) – 13 Points
There is a theme developing here, with Gordon yet another cheap option in the middle of the park who excelled in Gameweek 13. This contribution was a little more expected though, with the Newcastle man’s goal and assist against Chelsea taking him to ten attacking returns in the Premier League this season. FPL managers are taking notice, as the Englishman is approaching 15% in terms of ownership. The Magpies take on Man Utd in Gameweek 14 though, with the Red Devils having kept three consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League.

Joao Pedro (£5.3m) – 13 Points
Joao Pedro was a popular choice among FPL managers at the start of the season, and he even scored in Gameweek 1, but his ownership tailed off due to Roberto De Zerbi’s reluctance to start the Brazilian. The Brighton asset once again found himself on the bench in Gameweek 13, but an injury to Ansu Fati midway through the first half brought about his introduction. What followed was followed was two goals and maximum bonus for the striker, who has made a strong claim to start more regularly for the Seagulls.
