Draft Rankings 18/19 – Strikers

These are our Draft Rankings for Strikers for the 18/19 Draft Fantasy Football season!

Based on a classic eight man league, 24 strikers will be drafted, but with a lot of Premier League teams playing with a lone striker, you won’t necessarily be able to draft three first-choice strikers! For this article we rank our top 30 strikers.  The standard scoring system for FPL/Draft Fantasy has been used to determine the rankings!

Check out our Draft Essentials: How to Draft article for our tips on when would be the best time to draft your strikers!


These rankings will be constantly updated over the next few weeks, as we gain more information from friendlies.  New signings will also be added as and when they occur.  The World Cup status provides an easy reference as to when these players are likely to return for pre-season training.
