GW11 Kings to watch: Emile Smith Rowe

The Scout says Arsenal playmaker can deliver another double-figure home haul against Watford

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 11 of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Emile Smith Rowe (ARS) £5.6m

The Arsenal playmaker is in prolific form in Fantasy as he prepares to face Watford at home.

Smith Rowe has produced all of his attacking returns this season in the last six Gameweeks, scoring three goals and assisting a further two.

He has totalled 42 points over that run, including double-figure hauls at home to Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa and nine points from a 2-0 win at Leicester City last time out.

Smith Rowe's goal v Leicester

Managers have been quick to react to that output, making Smith Rowe the top target in midfield for Gameweek 10.

He has earned over 364,000 new owners, second only to the 510,000 of Reece James (£5.8m) among all players. 

Influential figure

The underlying numbers show Smith Rowe has been a huge all-round influence in the Gunners' attack over the last six Gameweeks.

His eight shots in the box and six shots on target both place second for Mikel Arteta's team.

And his 11 chances created rank joint-top along with Bukayo Saka (£6.3m).


Indeed, Smith Rowe places among the top 10 midfielders for all three of those statistics over that period.

Those numbers fare well when assessed against the winger's earlier displays.

He managed just four shots in the box, three shots on target and four chances created from Gameweeks 1-4.

Defensive frailties

Watford, meanwhile, visit Arsenal in poor defensive form.

Along with Newcastle United, they have yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

Furthermore, Watford have conceded eight goals in their three matches under Claudio Ranieri.

That points to another big home haul for Smith Rowe on Sunday.
