The Scout highlights Wolves midfielder's increased goal threat after his move up front

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

Pedro Neto (WOL) £5.6m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers man is listed as a midfielder in FPL but has been playing as a forward since the injury to Raul Jimenez (£8.3m).

Neto has returned 21 points over the last three Gameweeks, scoring against Southampton and producing a goal and an assist at Arsenal.

Wolves' top points scorer in FPL this season can now thrive again in his new role at home against Aston Villa this weekend.

Neto's contribution v Arsenal

The underlying numbers highlight Neto’s improving goal threat.

He has recorded five shots in the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks, compared to four in Wolves’ first seven matches.

Neto's five shots on target from Gameweek 8 onwards also compare favourably with his previous tallies. He managed just two in the opening seven matches.

And his numbers stack up well against those of other FPL midfielders.

Only Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes (£10.9m), with seven, has had more shorts on target in the last four Gameweeks. 

Creative influence

Neto has also been a standout source of creativity for his team this season.

His 20 key passes are at least double those of any team-mate apart from the 12 of Adama Traore (£6.2m).

Villa, meanwhile, visit Molineux having struggled defensively in recent matches.

They have conceded eight goals in their last four matches, the joint-worst record alongside Sheffield United.

With his eye for goal, Neto can seize upon those frailties, offering managers a cut-price midfield option for Gameweek 12.
