We gave you our goalkeeping and defensive Fantasy Football bargains, it being January and therefore time for your second wildcard.

Then we gave you our midfielder bargains, so lingering is the Christmas spirit within us. You’re welcome.

Now, gather round as we lay on some strikers for your consideration!

Our perceived Fantasy Football bargains are based on the official Premier League version of the game – it seems to be the most popular one, so it’s probably the one you play.

We accept no responsibility in the event of our tips not working out for you. That would just be down to plain bad luck.

Onwards, then, with our striker-based Fantasy Football bargains for the second half of the season…

Wilfried Bony, Swansea City – £7.3m

Seems to be coming into form, with two goals against Manchester City and a winner at Old Trafford in recent weeks.

Michu’s continued absence through injury makes him a clear starter for the Swans.

Danny Welbeck, Manchester United – £7.2m

Has scored five in five, in the league anyway. Not scored in two recent cup games, mind, so keep an eye on his form.

Dimitar Berbatov, Fulham – £7m

Has scored in each of his last three appearances – perhaps René Meulensteen is working some magic here.

Edin Džeko, Manchester City – £6.7m

Not likely to start many when Sergio Agüero returns from injury, but at that price he could be a good ‘spare’ option to pitch in when he looks likely to play.

Has scored loads as a sub too, so you might not even need him to start. Probably third choice behind Álvaro Negredo, though.

Gabriel Agbonlahor, Aston Villa – £6.7m

Scored in each of his last two games, perhaps indicating a return to the blistering form he showed at the end of last season.

Yoan Gouffran, Newcastle United – £6.4m

Had scored in five consecutive home games prior to the 0-1 defeat to table-toppers Arsenal.

Jay Rodriguez, Southampton – £6.2m

8 goals in his last 14.

Gary Hooper, Norwich City – £6.1m

5 goals in his last 10.

Gerard Deulofeu, Everton – £5.4m

Was exploding onto the scene before his injury, back should be back sooner rather than later.

Nicolas Anelka, West Bromwich Albion – £5.1m

2 in 2 since returning to the side, albeit they both in came in the same game.

Saido Berahino, West Bromwich Albion – £4.6m

Has scored in each of the last two games.
