The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 9 of Fantasy Premier League.

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) £6.3m

The West Ham United winger has enjoyed a strong start to the 2020/21 campaign.

Bowen scored three goals in the first four Gameweeks, producing hauls of 15 and eight points against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City respectively.

But a testing run of opponents and the loss of Michail Antonio (£6.2m) through injury has led to Bowen's attacking output declining. 

He has blanked in his last four matches, having faced Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Liverpool in that period.

However, West Ham are set to embark on a very kind schedule that raises the appeal of their key players.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only two of their next 12 matches score more than three.

West Ham's next 12 Gameweeks
9 SHU (A) 2 15 BHA (H) 2
10 AVL (H) 3 16 SOU (A) 3
11 MUN (H) 4 17 EVE (A) 3
12 LEE (A) 3 18 WBA (H) 2
13 CRY (H) 3 19 BUR (H) 2
14 CHE (A) 4 20 CRY (A) 3

That run includes a visit to bottom club Sheffield United in Gameweek 9.

The Blades have been poor in defence this season and are the only side yet to keep a clean sheet.

They have allowed 26 shots on target and nine big chances in home matches. Both of those totals are among the bottom three sides.

Bowen scored 17 goals in the Championship and Premier League last season and supplied a further 11 assists for West Ham and former club Hull City combined. 

At a cost of just £6.3m, he has the schedule to emerge as a major source of value over the coming Gameweeks.
