The Scout highlights players for Fantasy Premier League managers to target with their unlimited transfers before the Gameweek 30+ deadline.
The Argentinian can profit from a favourable short-term schedule for Newcastle United.
The central defender has been particularly effective when playing at home this season, averaging 5.6 points per start.

The 31-year-old’s all-round potential has been vital to his success in those matches.
He has combined a goal and two assists with four clean sheets, while he has also claimed 12 bonus points in total. Only three FPL defenders have secured more.
Fernandez also has a promising Gameweek 32+ fixture away to AFC Bournemouth.
The Cherries have struggled in attack at home, scoring just 17 goals. Only four sides have an inferior record.
At a cost of just £4.6m, Fernandez's run of opponents make him a standout candidate for managers who need to free up funds in defence.
