The Scout says AFC Bournemouth forward's home form will trouble Wolves

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 27 of Fantasy Premier League.

Joshua King (BOU) £6.4m

The AFC Bournemouth forward has thrived in home matches this season.

Six of King's eight goals and all three of his assists were recorded at Vitality Stadium.

He will look to extend that record against AFC Bournemouth's weekend visitors, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The West Midlands side have been far from resilient on the road, with only one clean sheet in their last 10 away matches.

Home returns

King has been a standout performer in his most recent home fixtures in particular.

The Norway international has produced 24 FPL points in his last two appearances in front of his own fans.

That includes two goals and an assist against Chelsea in Gameweek 24, earning him his season-high return of 16 points.

King is owned by only 5.6 per cent of managers, compared with the 20.7 per cent of Cherries' playmaker Ryan Fraser (£6.1m).

And his upcoming schedule raises his potential as a major differential for the run-in.

From Gameweek 30 onwards, seven of AFC Bournemouth's final nine matches score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

King can take advantage of those opponents and provide big value up front for the remainder of the season.
