The Scout looks at what Fantasy managers can learn from yesterday's five matches

A goal and clean sheet against Sheffield United helped Ben Mee (£4.9m) to a season-high haul in Fantasy Premier League.

The Burnley centre-back also picked up the maximum three bonus points in the 1-0 win to earn 15 points on Tuesday.

His average of 5.3 points per match this term ranks third among defenders with more than six appearances.

Mee's GW16 goal

Mee’s return from injury in Gameweek 8 has been a huge factor in Burnley's improved defensive form.

Five of their six clean sheets this season have come from that point onwards.

Dallas rivals Chilwell

Leeds United defensive duo Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) and Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) also produced their season-best scores in a 5-0 win at West Bromwich Albion.

They each claimed 12-point hauls, combining clean sheets with an assist and goal respectively.

Dallas now has three goals, two assists and six clean sheets this term.

His combined total of 11 returns is joint-top with Chelsea's Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) among FPL defenders.

Bednarek moves up to second

Southampton centre-back Jan Bednarek (£4.8m) kept up his outstanding FPL campaign in a goalless draw against West Ham United.

His total of 72 points ranks joint-second among defenders, only five points behind Kurt Zouma (£5.9m). 

Bednarek is also the second-best player for value in FPL.

His 15.0 points per million (ppm) spent is just behind the 15.2ppm of Leeds forward Patrick Bamford (£6.5m).

Bamford’s two assists against West Brom took his total to 99 points, the sixth-highest total in FPL.

Rashford helps Fernandes tie Salah

Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) continued his improving form with a late winner for Manchester United at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The England star has scored four of his seven goals this term in the last four Gameweeks.

His team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£11.1m) is now level with Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) at the top of the FPL player standings.

The Portuguese supplied the assist for Rashford’s strike, taking his tally to 120 points for the season.
