GW3 Differentials: Ollie Watkins

The Scout 23 Sep 2020

The Scout says Aston Villa forward has eye for goal to take advantage of Fulham’s open defence

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 3 in Fantasy Premier League.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) £6.0m

The Aston Villa forward can be found in just 1.5 per cent of squads ahead of a visit to Fulham on Monday.

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.

Favourable match-up

Furthermore, Fulham have struggled at the back since their return to the competition.

Scott Parker’s side have lost their first two matches, conceding three goals at home to Arsenal and four times at Leeds United.

Watkins can seize upon those frailties to deliver a cut-price source of goals in Gameweek 3.
