The Scout says favourable schedule lifts the prospects of Clarets’ cut-price players in Fantasy

A kind upcoming run of opponents raises the appeal of Burnley’s key players in Fantasy Premier League.

After their Gameweek 11 trip to Chelsea, members of Sean Dyche’s side can emerge as value options.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of Burnley’s subsequent six matches, against Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Newcastle United and Watford, score only two.

Summer signing Maxwel Cornet (£6.0m) is the Clarets’ form player in Fantasy. 

The midfielder has scored four goals in his last four appearances, claiming double-figure hauls against both Southampton and Brentford over the last two Gameweeks.

At a cost of just £4.4m, Josh Brownhill could be a handy option as a cut-price midfielder for managers’ benches.  

His seven chances created in the last four Gameweeks were joint-top for Burnley.

Forward Chris Wood (£6.7m) scored his first goal since Gameweek 3 in a 3-1 win over Brentford last weekend.

His 10 shots and five shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks were both at least double the total of any team-mate.

Need a budget defender?

In defence, Matthew Lowton (£4.4m) has stepped up his attacking contribution significantly in 2021/22 Fantasy.

The right-back has scored once and supplied three assists over the opening 10 Gameweeks.

By contrast, Lowton had managed just one goal and two assists in the previous three seasons combined.  

Remember, the Gameweek 12 deadline is at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 20 November.
