The Scout on why Newcastle left-back can bring in points at both ends of the pitch at home to Brighton

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 2 in Fantasy Premier League.

Jamal Lewis (NEW) £4.5m

The Newcastle United left-back sits in only 2.6 per cent of squads for his home encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Lewis was quick to impress on his debut last weekend, helping the Magpies to a 2-0 win at West Ham United.

And Newcastle’s defensive record at St James’ Park suggests they can claim a second successive clean sheet on Sunday.

Steve Bruce’s side produced seven shutouts at home last season, the same number as Liverpool and Manchester United.

Lewis’s attacking display against the Hammers further raises his prospects.

His three chances created were joint-top with Jonjo Shelvey (£5.5m) for Newcastle.

Indeed, that total ranked second among all FPL defenders in the opening round of matches. 

When that factor is combined with his potential for a clean sheet, Lewis could be a standout value pick at the back in Gameweek 2.
