The Scout says Brentford’s favourable schedule raises value of Frenchman in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League

Bryan Mbeumo (BRE) £5.5m

The Frenchman is owned by only 3.3 per cent of managers for Brentford’s home contest with Leicester City.

After starting the season with four straight blanks, Mbeumo’s output has improved.

Both his goals this term have come in the last four Gameweeks, the 22-year-old scoring and earning eight points against both Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.

Listed as a midfielder in Fantasy, Mbeumo has been playing as a forward alongside Ivan Toney (£6.4m) this season.


The underlying numbers reflect his improving goal threat.

His seven shots inside the box ranked fourth in midfield over the last four Gameweeks. And only five players bettered his three big chances overall. 

Keeping it clean

Leicester, meanwhile, visit on Sunday afternoon with a poor defensive record on the road.

They have yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels this term, conceding nine away goals, second only to the 10 of Crystal Palace

The Foxes encounter precedes a very favourable run of opponents, with Brentford set to face each of the bottom three clubs - BurnleyNorwich City and Newcastle United - in successive Gameweeks. 

At a cost of only £5.5m, Mbeumo looks a standout source of value in Fantasy for that upcoming period.
