The Scout on Sheff Utd forward whose goal threat ranks among the best in FPL over last two Gameweeks

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 11 in Fantasy Premier League

Oliver McBurnie (SHU) £5.6m

The forward sits in just 0.3 per cent of squads for Sheffield United’s home meeting with Leicester City.

McBurnie has managed just one assist in terms of attacking returns this season, at Liverpool in Gameweek 6.

However, he has boasted a significant goal threat in recent matches.

The Sheff Utd striker has recorded 10 shots inside the penalty area and five shots on target in the last two Gameweeks.


Both those statistics are league-leading totals, level with Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) and Richarlison (£7.8m) respectively.

Similarly, McBurnie’s four big chances in this period are joint-top with Roberto Firmino (£9.2m).

Major improvement

When assessed against his previous displays, it’s clear the Scotland international has upped his attacking potential considerably.

McBurnie managed just seven shots in the box, three shots on target and three big chances across the opening eight Gameweeks.

Leicester, meanwhile, visit Bramall Lane having struggled defensively of late.

TV Info

They have conceded eight goals in their last three matches in all competitions.

McBurnie can profit from those frailties with his improving goal threat, and offer managers a big source of value in Gameweek 11.

Remember the Gameweek 11 deadline is now at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 5 December.
