Daily Scout Notes, Friday 17 July

Michail Antonio strikes again to reward the 137,113 managers who made him the fifth-most popular signing of GW36+

The Scout reviews every Fantasy Premier League fixture, whether it's noting player rotation or injuries, tactical observations or highlighting in-form differentials.

TV Info

Michail Antonio (£7.0m) continued his prolific form by scoring the opener in West Ham United’s 3-1 home win over Watford.

The fifth most-bought player for Gameweek 36+, he was transferred in by 137,113 managers after producing four goals and 26 points against Norwich City in his previous match.

Antonio has scored seven of his nine goals this season in the last five Gameweeks, also supplying an assist.

Still owned by just 3.5 per cent of squads, he is among a number of Hammers differentials to increase their output recently.

Hammers differentials

Tomas Soucek (£4.8m) has scored in three of the last five fixtures, while Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) has four assists in that period.

While a visit to Manchester United in Gameweek 37+ limits interest in the Hammers, a home match with Aston Villa on the final day of the season hands them a chance to finish 2019/20 FPL on a high.

For Watford, Troy Deeney (£6.1m) scored in back-to-back fixtures for the first time this term.

Owned by only 1.8 per cent, the Hornets' frontman has three goals and 21 points in the last two Gameweeks.

But his remaining matches are against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Wood bargain

Managers looking for a cut-price forward should instead look to Chris Wood (£6.1m).

The Burnley striker faces Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion in the final two Gameweeks.  

Top scorer: Declan Rice 10pts (TSB 1.5% £4.7m)
Bonus points: Declan Rice 3pts, Troy Deeney 2pts, Tomas Soucek 1pt.

Next two Gameweeks

West Ham: MUN (A) AVL (H)
Watford: MCI (H) ARS (A)
