Wp Rocket might be worth the price for you if you’re improving Core Web Vitals, especially LCP, as Autoptimize charges for the Critical CSS feature($5/mo).
Wp Rocket also has a friendly database optimization feature that allows removing junk database tables and comments within a single click.
Autoptimize has other features on its Pro version, available at $79/year, but even that it doesn’t compare to WP Rocket. At $59/year Wp Rocket might be a better choice.
