The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 24 of Fantasy Premier League.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.0m

The Leicester City striker looks set for his first start since Gameweek 19 after his recent comeback from injury.

Vardy missed Leicester's three matches between Gameweeks 20 and 22 before featuring as a substitute against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

His return to fitness can help Brendan Rodgers’ side take advantage of Liverpool’s poor defensive form.

Liverpool travel to King Power Stadium on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Manchester City.

The champions have managed just a single clean sheet in their last seven outings.

Vardy, meanwhile, has a prolific record against Liverpool.

He has scored five goals in his last four home meetings, netting twice on two of those occasions.

Powerful differential

Vardy's ownership has dropped to just 14.3 per cent due to his recent absence.

That makes him a tempting differential for managers looking for a new forward.

He has averaged 6.2 points per match (ppm) this season, second only by the 7.5 ppm of Harry Kane (£11.0m) among forwards in Fantasy.

Long-term appeal

Leicester’s subsequent schedule further boosts the appeal of their talisman. 

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their five matches from Gameweek 25 onwards score no more than three.

That hands Vardy the chance to play his way back into the plans of managers in Fantasy, starting with Saturday's encounter with Liverpool.
