The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 3 in Fantasy Premier League.
Watkins enjoyed a prolific season for Brentford in last season’s Championship, scoring 26 goals and supplying three assists.
He made an instant impact on his debut for Villa, scoring in a 3-1 win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.
Although he failed to pick up attacking returns against Sheffield United in his first Premier League outing in Gameweek 2, Watkins’ statistics were encouraging.
His total of three shots in the box was more than any other Villa player, while he also supplied two scoring chances.
Furthermore, Fulham have struggled at the back since their return to the competition.
Watkins can seize upon those frailties to deliver a cut-price source of goals in Gameweek 3.
