GW35 Kings to watch: Ollie Watkins

The Scout 4 May 2021

The Scout says in-form Aston Villa forward is delivering ahead of his pair of home matches

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 35 of Fantasy Premier League.

Ollie Watkins (AVL) £6.5m

The striker approaches Aston Villa’s Double Gameweek 35 in his most consistent form of the season.

Watkins has produced returns in five successive matches, scoring three goals and supplying two assists to earn 33 points in Fantasy.

Villa play at home on both occasions in Gameweek 35, against Manchester United and Everton.

Encouragingly for his 25.9 per cent ownership, Watkins scored against the Toffees just a few days ago, earning eight points in Saturday's 2-1 win at Goodison Park.

The underlying numbers indicate Watkins is among the most in-form frontmen in Fantasy. 

His nine shots in the box, six shots on target and six chances created over the last four Gameweeks all put him among the top three forwards.

Watkins' goal and chances v Everton

Watkins’ importance to the Villa attack has increased since Jack Grealish (£7.5m) was sidelined.

The striker was involved in 39 per cent of their goals in the first 24 Gameweeks before Grealish was ruled out through injury. 

Since then, Watkins has been involved in 58 per cent of Villa’s goals.

The statistics show why he has been such a big influence in that recent period. 

His 25 shots, 20 shots in the box and 11 shots on target are all team-leading totals. His 14 chances created are also joint-top with John McGinn (£5.5m) and Bertrand Traore (£5.8m). 

With his all-round potential for points, Watkins can reward his owners once again in Fantasy, extending his fine end-of-season form.
