Is it time for FPL managers to sell Tammy Abraham?

Tammy Abraham had another quiet game against Brighton. He has now not scored in five of the last six game weeks and has only registered one assist and one goal in that period. The center forward's form has taken a huge hit since his injury during game week 14 and even though he scored 12 points in the very next game after returning, he has not been his old-self ever since. 

He is asking for a lot of patience from his FPL owners at the moment with very little promise. He was a must-have FPL asset at the start of the season, but that time has passed long ago and managers are now thinking about selling him.

In Chelsea's game against Brighton, the Englishmen had only three touches inside opposition's penalty box and registered just two shots on the target. His continuous dip in form has brought him in a tricky position as he is going to face Burnley (home) and Newcastle (away) in his next two fixtures. Due to his poor form and other potential strikers, FPL managers are selling him. He has also scored just one goal against the traditional 'top six' in this season and has three matches against those teams in the month of February.

In the same price range, Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) is doing amazing for Wolves right now and is scheduled to face Newcastle (home) and Southampton (away) next. Danny Ings (£6.7m) is another option who is consistently scoring goals and is at the helm of Southampton's mid-season resurgence.

Not only Abraham, but Chelsea as a whole is struggling at the moment as they have won just two out of their last five matches and is now fighting for a spot in the 'top four' against teams like Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Looks like lack of experience in the team has finally to hurt their chances and it will be difficult for them to keep up with the level of Premier League if they continue to play like this in the second second-half of the season.

To conclude, I feel like it is finally time to move away from Tammy Abraham and consider other viable options like Ings or Calvert-Lewin for the near future. Abraham will definitely come back stronger soon, but for now, he is just an FPL liability.
