The Scout tips Harry Kane as one of four top picks ahead of Spurs' favourable fixtures

The Scout pinpoints the players who can score big points over the upcoming Gameweeks in Fantasy Premier League.

Premium forwards
Harry Kane (TOT) £12.5m

The Tottenham Hotspur forward approaches the final eight Gameweeks in his most devastating form of the season.

Kane has 66 points in his last seven appearances, scoring seven goals and assisting a further four.

Four double-figure hauls in that run, and a single blank, highlight his improving appeal as an armband contender in Fantasy.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), only one of Spurs’ final nine fixtures score more than three.

And one of those is yet to be rearranged, which should result in another Double Gameweek for Antonio Conte’s men later in 2021/22.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £10.3m

If the Leicester City striker can recover from a knee injury in time for Gameweek 31, he could prove an outstanding differential for the run-in.

Owned by only 8.5 per cent, Vardy has averaged 5.1 points per match this season, more than any other forward. 

Crucially, Leicester have one of the most appealing schedules, with seven of their remaining 11 matches scoring only two in the FDR.

They have a favourable Double Gameweek 33 against Newcastle United and Everton, while the Foxes also have two fixtures still to be rescheduled, which should result in further Double Gameweeks. 

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £8.4m

Arsenal also have a kind end to the campaign, with five of their final 10 matches scoring just two in the FDR. 

Lacazette has started every match from Gameweek 15 onwards, scoring three of his four goals this season, and supplying all eight of his assists, during that run.

Indeed, his total of 65 points ranks second among forwards over that period.  

The underlying numbers further highlight his all-round potential. 

Lacazette’s 36 shots, 28 shots in the box and 21 key passes all place among the top three forwards in Fantasy from Gameweek 15 onwards.

Cristiano Ronaldo (MUN) £12.2m

A hat-trick and 17 points in Manchester United’s last match suggests the talisman still has a part to play in Fantasy this season.

Ronaldo's short-term schedule, in particular, hands him the chance to get more goals, with Man Utd facing Leicester and Everton in their next two matches.

Although their DGW33 involves a visit to Liverpool, their first match is at home to Norwich City.

Given that four of the Portuguese’s five double-figure hauls in 2021/22 have come at Old Trafford, he still has the potential for another big score.
