The Scout says Arsenal star’s explosive potential in Fantasy makes him worth the risk for DGW35

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ARS) £11.3m

The Gabonese can be found in just 6.9 per cent of squads for Arsenal’s matches against West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea.

Aubameyang’s appeal in Fantasy has been reduced for a number of reasons recently, with rotation, personal issues and illness limiting him to a mere seven starts from Gameweek 19 onwards.

Nonetheless, when named in the Gunners’ starting XI in that period, he has proved to be a reliable source of returns.

Indeed, Aubameyang has racked up 61 points over those seven matches, scoring seven goals and providing an assist.

The 31-year-old highlighted his explosive potential in Fantasy upon his return to the starting line-up against Newcastle United last weekend.

He claimed 12 points in the 2-0 win at St James’ Park, producing a goal and an assist.

Arsenal’s involvement in the UEFA Europa League means doubts currently remain over Aubamayeng’s chances of starting both their Double Gameweek 35 contests.

Managers should therefore wait for the outcome of their semi-final second leg against Villarreal on Thursday, as the Gunners look to overhaul a 2-1 deficit.

Should they fail to progress, Aubameyang looks very likely to be handed back-to-back starts, offering managers an explosive midfield option in Gameweek 35.
