GW16 Kings to watch: Jarrod Bowen

The Scout 8 Dec 2021

The Scout on why West Ham winger offers a strong double-up option alongside Michail Antonio

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 16 of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Jarrod Bowen (WHU) £6.5m

A very favourable winter schedule looks promising for West Ham United’s key attacking players in Fantasy.

Five of the Hammers’ next seven matches, including this weekend's trip to Burnley, score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).

Their forward Michail Antonio (£7.9m) is the most-owned player in his position in Fantasy, found in 39.2 per cent of squads.

Bowen, meanwhile, is selected by a mere 4.5 per cent. 

Yet the winger has been among the most consistent players in FPL recently, blanking in only three of his last 10 starts.

Bowen has amassed 62 points in that run, scoring three goals and assisting a further seven.

By contrast, Antonio and Said Benrahma (£6.0m), who is owned by 20.1 per cent, have combined for a total of 67 points, with 32 and 35 respectively.


The underlying numbers further highlight Bowen’s goal threat from Gameweek 5 onwards. 

His total of 31 shots ranks third among all players, bettered only by the 43 and 37 of Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) respectively.

Bowen’s 25 shots in the box and 12 shots on target both place fourth in Fantasy during that period.

Meanwhile, his seven big chances are more than double the total of any team-mate.

Bowen’s huge potential for goals and assists means pairing him with the popular Antonio could prove a shrewd tactic in the coming Gameweeks.
