The Scout says Everton midfielder has been among most consistent players in Fantasy this season

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 8 of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (EVE) £5.7m

The Everton midfielder has been among the most reliable performers in Fantasy this season.

Doucoure has produced returns in five of the first seven Gameweeks, including two double-figure hauls.


Indeed, he has already surpassed his total attacking output from 2020/21.

The Frenchman’s two goals and four assists are one assist more than he managed in the Toffees’ final season under Carlo Ancelotti

Doucoure's masterclass v Norwich

The underlying statistics highlight Doucoure’s vastly improved goal threat in Everton’s first season with Rafa Benitez at the helm.

He is averaging a shot every 52.5 minutes this term, compared with 136.2 minutes in 2020/21.

And his total of nine shots in the box is just one fewer than he managed in the entire previous campaign.

Value for money

Doucoure’s impressive start to 2021/22 has provided Fantasy managers with a major source of value.

In terms of points per million (ppm) returned, his 7.5ppm ranks second among midfielders and forwards.

Everton’s short-term schedule suggests the Frenchman can continue thriving in the budget bracket.

Two of their next three opponents scoring two according to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

10 WOL (A) 2

Doucoure can extend his consistent start to the campaign, providing managers with a standout pick at under £6.0m in Fantasy.
