GW18 Ones to watch: Daniel James

The Scout says Man Utd winger can continue his fine away form at Watford

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 18 of Fantasy Premier League.

Daniel James (MUN) £6.1m

The Manchester United winger has been a consistent source of returns in recent away matches.

James has supplied an assist in three of the Red Devils' last four road trips, producing points at Norwich City, Sheffield United and Manchester City in that period.

That highlights his potential as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side make their way to Watford this weekend.

Watford struggles

The Hornets sit at the foot of the table having struggled defensively this season.

They have conceded 32 goals, the third-worst record in the league.

The underlying numbers show why James has been a key influence for Man Utd on the road.

Happy traveller

Away from home, his 12 key passes and three big chances created are joint-top with Marcus Rashford (£9.1m).

And his seven shots on target are just one fewer than the eight of Rashford.

James's assist at home against Everton last weekend has caught the eye of FPL managers.

He is the eighth most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, earning over 47,000 transfers in.

Kind schedule

The Red Devils' short-term schedule further raises the appeal of the Wales international.

Man Utd have three away matches in the next four Gameweeks, including trips to Burnley and Arsenal.

And they also have a favourable home encounter with Newcastle United in Gameweek 19.

That marks James out as a strong cut-price option in midfield, starting with this Sunday's visit to Vicarage Road.
