1 Raul Jimenez – £4.2m
Wolves Mexican forward has been one of the success stories of the season, having netted 16 goals in all competitions to put him up there with some of the Premier League’s most potent goalscorers.
But despite his consistency and his brilliant total of 186 points on Dream Team – which is better than the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Marcus Rashford – the ex-Benfica striker is still valued at a very reasonable £4.2m.
2 Troy Deeney – £4.2m
For the same price as Jimenez, you can pick up one very in-vogue Troy Deeney for your team.
And while he’s slightly behind the Wolves forward in terms of points scored – with 148 so far this term – he does have the advantage of playing in that extra fixture at the end of the season: the FA Cup final.
3 Salomon Rondon – £4.1m
Newcastle fans haven’t had much to shout about this season, although they do at least look reasonably safe from relegation.
But perhaps one of the shining lights of their campaign has been the form of on-loan forward Rondon, who’s often been the difference for the Magpies in big matches; his lovely 25-yard free-kick against Bournemouth recently stands out in particular.
With Rafa Benitez’s side desperate for a good finish to the season, we could see a strong final few weejks for the Venezuelan in front of goal – and that could be good news for your fantasy football team.

4 Jamie Vardy – £3.8m
Vardy is a man in form right now.
Unshackled by Brendan Rodgers following the departure of Claude Puel, the former England international has netted eight goals in his last eight appearances – which has helped him rack up a stunning 61 points in his last five Game Weeks.
Not bad, considering how cheap he is at the moment.
5 Gerard Deulofeu – £2.8m
Technically not a striker in real life, with the former Barcelona starlet preferring to play on the wing, but we have him down as forward on Dream Team.
And he might just be your secret weapon in Watford’s final few games of the season, as the Hornets have four home games to look forward to as well as a trip to Huddersfield coming up.
His two goals at the weekend sunk Wolves and kept Javi Gracia’s FA Cup dreams alive and he might just finish the season in a flurry.
