GW16 Differentials: Joshua King

The Scout on why Watford forward has the potential to outscore team-mate Emmanuel Dennis

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

Joshua King (WAT) £5.7m

The forward is owned by just 6.1 per cent of managers for Watford’s trip to Brentford.

Compared with the 24.6 per cent ownership of his identically-priced team-mate Emmanuel Dennis (£5.7m), King has the form to be a huge differential in Fantasy.

TV Info

King has been a huge success in Fantasy since the arrival of Claudio Ranieri as head coach in Gameweek 8.

He has scored all five of his goals this season in his seven appearances under the Italian.

The Norway international has been particularly reliable on the road in that period.

He has four goals and 23 points in his three away appearances under Ranieri, including his season-high 16 points at Everton in Gameweek 9.


The underlying numbers further highlight King’s major goal threat. 

His 22 shots overall and 19 shots in the box from Gameweek 8 onwards both put him among the top five players in Fantasy.

And his nine big chances in that period put him joint-top alongside Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) and Christian Benteke (£6.4m).

Watford’s short-term schedule suggests King can make an immediate impact for managers.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next three matches score only two.
