Hand in the Attacking duties to the best ones in business!

With Matchday 1 nearing, Fantasy fans would be looking to add the final touches to their FIFA World Cup 2022 Fantasy Classic side. They would be eager to prove that they are the ultimate experts when it comes to decoding which football players are most likely to shine on the big stage. The most challenging part of building a Fantasy side is definitely picking Forward-line Players. You will find the most expensive assets of your side in them, with Forward-line players priced at 10 Million and above. Hence, picking the right Forwards becomes essential since you need to balance your Budget effectively as well. In this FIFA World Cup 2022 Fantasy Guide, we will be listing some Popular as well as Differential Forwards who can add value to your FIFA World Cup 2022 Fantasy side. 

Best Forwards in FIFA World Cup 2022 Fantasy

1. Lionel Messi (Argentina) – 10.5 million

This was a pretty obvious listing not only because of the name that he carries but also the group that is side Argentina is in. If you look at Group C, Argentina faces Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Poland. Clearly, they are the firm favorites to qualify for the Round of 16 as Group-table toppers. Argentina has a good chance of scoring in each of their three games, and if they do, this man will almost certainly contribute, if not with a goal then at least with an assist. He is also the penalty and free-kick taker of his side.

With 11 goals and the most number of assists this season across all competitions, the Argentinian GOAT is hitting form and has also found the net in the recently concluded friendly match against the UAE. A premium choice, he is set to be the captain for most Fantasy sides in Matchday 1.

2. Harry Kane (England) – 11.0 million

Heading into the World Cup, the 29-year-old has found the net 13 times for Tottenham Hotspur this season. Similar to what it is for Argentina, England is placed with a team of underdogs on paper. When it comes to your Forwards, you earn Fantasy Points with every 2 shots on target. With England up against the likes of Iran, the USA, and Wales, you expect their captain and key striker Harry Kane to at least be on the money.

He has always been a contributor to his nation with 51 goals in 75 appearances, falling just behind Wayne Rooney. The Three Lions would be expecting the 2018 Golden Boot Winner to start from exactly where he left off last time and not many Fantasy lovers would want to leave him out of the XI when he comes out against Iran on 21st.

3. Neymar (Brazil) – 10.5 Million

With 15 Goals and 12 assists for Paris Saint Germain across all competitions this season, the prolific goal-scorer and renowned playmaker, Neymar Jr. is in red-hot form. Grouped alongside Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon, Brazil would pretty much fancy their chances of finishing first in their group. Another tempting option that many won’t want to miss out on despite the high price tag.

In his last 10 outings for Brazil, the number 10 has had 12 Attacking runs and would look to add to his already impressive 75-goal contribution for the Brazilian side.

4. Kylian Mbappe (France) – 11.5 Million

Many might shy away from the 23-year-old for his high-price tag and choose to go with Karim Benzema instead, for 11 Million. However, Benzema has just returned from an injury and the domestic numbers are in Mbappe’s favor. The Forward has 19 goals and 5 assists in the 20 Domestic games that he played this season.

The best young player of the previous edition has a much bigger role to play this year. Australia, Denmark, and Tunisia make up France’s group, which shouldn’t have the Defending Champions in much trouble. With Benzema not fully fit, chances are that Mbappe might take the penalties for France as he enjoys a healthy conversion rate of 82.14%.

5. Lautaro Martinez (Argentina) – 8.0 Million

With Lionel Messi lining up behind him, it won’t be a shocker if Lautaro Martinez finds himself among the goal scorers. The Grouping being in Argentina’s favor, the 25-year-old might as well finish as the top scorer from Group C, post Matchday 3.

Coming to his most recent form, Martinez has contributed by scoring 8 goals and 5 assists this season for the Italian side, Inter Milan. He has registered an attacking return in each of his last 5 matches. At $8m, he should turn out to be a bargain.

6. Darwin Nunez (Uruguay) – 8.0 Million

This could be a tricky pick as the 23-year-old Uruguayan was struggling to find form while representing his Premier League side, Liverpool this season. After a rather poor outing at Anfield, the young Forward showed signs of return with 3 goals in his last 3 club games.

Apart from Portugal, the other two teams ground with Nunez are Ghana and Korea Republic. So the outing doesn’t seem to be much difficult for Uruguay in the Group stages, if not the smoothest. Uruguay would be looking forward to a contribution from Nunez to stay in the Round of 16 race and this makes him a good Fantasy pick.

7. Alvaro Morata (Spain) – 8.0 Million

Morata would definitely feature in Spain’s opening game vs Costa Rica. This makes him an interesting pick for the Fantasy side. With Germany lined up in the same group, the road won’t be smooth enough for Morata’s Spanish side. However, they will most likely make it to the Round of 16, if not as table toppers.

In 14 appearances for the Spanish club, Atletico Madrid this season, Morata has registered 5 goals and 1 assist to his name. He alongside Ferran Torres could be the reason for the Spanish fans to smile in this World Cup.

8. Cody Gakpo (Netherlands) – 7.0 Million

Memphis Depay would have been a tempting pick when it comes to the Netherlands, but sadly he would be missing Matchday 1, courtesy of an injury. Not to worry as this 23-year-old Dutch footballer has got you covered. Priced only at 7.0 Million, he can be an ideal Budget pick with the form that he is carrying.

Stats reflect that this young gun has made 30 attacking returns for his club PSV Eindhoven so far this season, across all competitions. Out of these 30 runs, he could register 13 goals and 17 assists to his name. With Depay missing out, he could be the one to look for, in the Senegal match.

9. Michy Batshuayi (Belgium) – 6.5 Million

Getting a Belgian Forward at such an affordable price is a steal deal. With Lukaku likely to miss out on the Opener against Canada, he is the probable starter in that game. Going by the teams lined up in Group F, apart from Croatia, neither Canada nor Morocco is likely to pose a threat to the Belgian side.

The 29-year-old has 8 goals in 13 appearances this Season for his side Fenerbahce. The odds are in his favor and getting him for 6.5 Million against Canada is a good price for money.

10. Aleksandar Mitrovic (Serbia) – 7.0 Million

Another budget option, this 28-year-old Serbian striker seems quite appealing for the matches against Switzerland and Cameroon. The Brazilian side might also have a tough time dealing with him if he is ready for Matchday 1.

Throughout the years, he has been a dependable Forward for Serbia, scoring 50 goals in 75 appearances for his national side. He has additionally registered 9 goals in 12 appearances for Fulham this season. With form in his favor, he is definitely a good budget pick.
