Some more incredibly high-scoring games delivered mountains of points for managers in Gameweek 4 with no less than 14 players scoring 10 or more TFF points!

Gameweek 4 Top Point-Scorers

Some more incredibly high-scoring games delivered mountains of points for managers in Gameweek 4 with no less than 14 players scoring 10 or more TFF points:

1. Jack Grealish (Aston Villa, £4.6m) - 21 points

Aston Villa's talisman was on fire with two goals and three assists as the Villans put seven past Liverpool.

2. Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa, £4.4m) - 20 points

A hat-trick and an assist from Villa's new signing has put the Englishman firmly on our radar.

3. James Rodriguez (Everton, £5.4m) - 15 points

The creative Colombian is raking in the points and produced another superb display against Brighton.

4. Callum Wilson (Newcastle, £4.8m) - 15 points

The former Cherries' striker has certainly hit the ground running at his new club.

5. Harry Kane (Tottenham, £6.7m) - 15 points

Another masterclass from the England captain as Spurs hit Manchester United for six.

Note: Son Heung-min and Ben Chilwell also scored 15 points in Gameweek 4.

TIP 1: It's been raining goals so targeting in-form teams with winnable fixtures coming up looks a sensible short to medium term move.

TIP 2: Be careful of taking out your 'cornerstone' players as you will most likely want them back sooner rather than later. Players such as De Bruyne and Alexander-Arnold are proven TFF points machines who will almost certainly come good at some point.

Best Transfers In

Looking at our fixture ticker, the teams with the best fixtures coming up in the next four games are Tottenham, Fulham, Brighton, West Brom, Southampton and Wolves in that order. With this in mind let's take a look at a few picks which could see you climb the ranks during the next month:

1. Harry Kane (Tottenham, £6.7m)

A pretty obvious pick but he is back on form, has great fixtures on the horizon and there's a certain Welshman waiting in the wings to feed him even more chances. With penalties in his locker too, he could score a LOT of TFF points in the coming gameweeks.

2. Son Heung-min (Tottenham, £6.0m)

Similar to the above pick, the South Korean is playing as a second striker most of the time and is an elite finisher. Spurs are on the crest of a wave and he should keep banging the goals in whilst also being on some set piece duties.

3. Neal Maupay (Brighton, £4.7m)

The Frenchman could have made the budget section but he's here on merit. On penalties and with some very enticing upcoming fixtures, Maupay should keep scoring well if Brighton's form continues.

Budget Gems

1. Leandro Trossard (Brighton, £3.5m)

The Seagulls' midfielder's great form hasn't translated into points as yet but this could be around the corner. A hat-trick of woodwork strikes against Manchester United gives a hint as to how close he is to some serious points.

2. Kyle Walker-Peters (Southampton, £2.8m)

For those looking to downgrade some expensive defenders, you won't go far wrong with the Saints' young right back. He is very attacking and has the fixtures in the next month to score well at both ends of the pitch.

3. Fernando Marcal (Wolves, £2.7m)

The new Wolves' left back looks a very shrewd buy if he recovers from injury. Again, a cheap defender with attacking intent to help shift budget into attack and he should score well over the next month.
