For managers who are considering playing their second Wildcard in Fantasy Premier League, The Scout suggests targets to consider.
The Southampton centre-back has delivered points at both ends of the field in the last eight Gameweeks.
All three of Stephens’ clean sheets this season have come in that period, while he has also scored once and supplied two assists.
Saints’ 9-0 loss to Leicester City in Gameweek 10 proved a turning point in Stephens’ season.
He had started just one match prior to that match, against Burnley in Gameweek 1.
But he has since started all 15 of Southampton's Premier League fixtures.
Despite his low cost and regular starting role, Stephens remains largely overlooked by FPL managers.
He is found in only 3.4 per cent of squads ahead of a very favourable run of matches.
|26||BUR (H)||2||30||NOR (A)||2|
|27||AVL (H)||2||31||ARS (H)||4|
|28||WHU (A)||2||32||WAT (A)||2|
|29||NEW (H)||2||33||MCI (H)||4|
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men face the bottom four sides during that period.
That gives Stephens the chance to continue his run of defensive and attacking returns.
