A pulsating environment continues to grip FPL aficionados as the 2021/22 Premier League campaign moves into its final two weeks of the season. Having undergone a rollercoaster ride throughout the ongoing campaign, an intriguing race for the title is likely to head to the wire, with Fantasy Premier League managers remaining keen on moving up the ranks over the remaining fixtures.

While the midfielders and defenders are expected to deliver the bulk of points over the remaining fixtures, desperation to improve the team’s prospects could see the forwards flourish over the remainder of the season. With the forward line having struggled to provide a consistent asset this season, a double GW could potentially spark a period of redemption for the promising assets within the department.

Although FPL managers are expected to bolster their midfield and defences for the upcoming gameweek, a handful of promising forwards could handsomely add to their points tally this weekend. Hence, in this article, we take a look at three forward assets most likely to deliver returns whilst assessing their potential vis-à-vis the fixtures schedule over the remainder of the campaign.
