We delayed this article until after the FA Cup 6th round draw to see how the postponed games would affect FPL transfer trends. We've talked more about the situation with GW28 and GW29 in our article the 'The Fixture Puddle'. So far though transfer trends are not reflecting the potential lank fixtures for many teams with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal miss GW29) the most popular transfer in the last 24 hours.

It’s no surprise to see Adebayor leading all transfers in this week after two goals and an assist in Tottenham’s 4-0 romp at
Adebayor has blown hot and cold over the course of his Premier League career with but what can be shown is when he’s “in the mood” he certainly looks the part. Equally attractive is his security and very affordable price (£8.1m) in a Top 6 team that have found their shooting boots. Adebayor looks a very capable player to sit in your team for the rest of the season.
Next up on the most wanted list is Daniel Sturridge who has now leap-frogged Adam Johnson to sit atop the FPL Form Charts scoring 10 points per game (PPG) over the last 5 weeks. It’s Suarez-esque form and Liverpool’s immediate home fixture with
