The return to fitness of Callum Wilson (£6.5m) hands managers in Fantasy Premier League a tempting option for Gameweek 31. 

The Newcastle United forward has been passed fit for their visit to Burnley, having missed the last seven matches through injury. 

He produced his season-high haul of 16 points in his previous meeting with the Clarets, scoring twice and providing an assist in Gameweek 4.

Wilson has been a huge success in Fantasy this term, despite Newcastle's struggles, and has been involved in 70 per cent of their goals.

He has scored 10 times and supplied six FPL assists over his 21 appearances.

Wilson’s average of 5.5 points per match (ppm) ranks third among forwards in Fantasy, bettered only by the 7.3ppm and 5.7ppm of Harry Kane (£11.7m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) respectively.

Burnley, meanwhile, have struggled defensively at Turf Moor recently.

They have managed only one clean sheet in their last eight home matches.

Wilson can exploit those weaknesses, offering Newcastle and Fantasy managers alike a vital source of goals for Gameweek 31.
