GW12 Kings to watch: Patrick Bamford

The Scout 8 Dec 2020

The Scout says Leeds striker has produced more shots in the area at home than any other forward in FPL this season

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 12 of Fantasy Premier League.

Patrick Bamford (LEE) £6.2m

The Leeds United forward has been a huge success following their promotion to the Premier League.

Bamford has scored eight goals and also supplied two assists in the opening 11 Gameweeks.

He has been far more reliable on the road, scoring seven of his goals away from home.

However, the underlying numbers show Bamford is among the top players for goal threat when playing at home this term.

His 17 shots and eight shots on target both place among the top five players in FPL.

Bamford's 17 shots inside the box are more than any forward in FPL, bettered only by the 18 of Liverpool pair Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Sadio Mane (£12.0m).

Furthermore, his seven big chances at home are joint-top along with Newcastle United talisman Callum Wilson (£6.6m).

Favourable opponent

A home encounter with West Ham United looks encouraging for Bamford's 36.5 per cent ownership in FPL. 

David Moyes' side have conceded 12 shots on target in the last two Gameweeks, the second-worst record in the Premier League.

Leeds' fixture with West Ham starts a kind run of opponents that further raises Bamford's appeal.

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

That also includes home meetings with Newcastle, Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion, as well as a trip to West Bromwich Albion.

Bamford can continue to thrive in front of goal over the busy festive period, starting with Friday evening's contest.
