The Scout assesses the best players for managers to consider for opening Fantasy Premier League squads, according to price, position and early schedule.
The winger was a peripheral figure in his debut campaign for Aston Villa last term.
Making only seven starts, Bailey managed a goal and three assists over the campaign.
However, he has been a regular during the club’s summer schedule so far, starting each of their three friendlies.
Bailey has produced a goal and an assist over those outings, strengthening his claim ahead of a hugely favourable short-term schedule.
Pereira was handed an advanced central role behind lone striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.5m) on his debut against Benfica last weekend.
He made an immediate impact, supplying an assist for Mitrovic's strike in a 5-1 loss.
Pereira has quickly emerged as the go-to budget midfielder for managers ahead of the new season.
He is the fourth most-owned player in his position, found in over 22 per cent of squads.
Injury restricted the Wolverhampton Wanderers winger as he missed the majority of last season.
Neto was a key figure for Wolves in his last full campaign in Fantasy in 2020/21, scoring five goals and supplying eight assists.
His all-round influence that season is highlighted by the underlying statistics.
Neto's 21 shots on target and 61 chances created were both team-leading totals.
Wolves have been handed a kind early schedule, facing only one of last season’s top-six sides in their opening six matches.
|1||LEE (A)||2||4||NEW (H)||3|
|2||FUL (H)||2||5||BOU (A)||2|
|3||TOT (A)||4||6||SOU (H)||2|
Wissa scored four of his seven goals for 2021/22, and supplied both of his assists, in Brentford’s final nine matches.
He has continued that form into pre-season, producing a goal and an assist in three summer friendlies.
Owned by a mere 0.4 per cent of managers, Wissa has the schedule to prove a huge differential early on this term.
Five of Brentford's first seven matches score only two in the FDR.
The Brazilian was a huge success in Fantasy after joining Newcastle United midway through last term.
Guimaraes averaged 5.5 points per start, combining five goals with an assist over his 11 outings.
His all-round influence has already been in evidence over the summer, with the 24-year-old recording a goal and an assist over his two pre-season outings.
Three of Newcastle’s first four matches score two in the FDR, handing Guimaraes the platform to become a huge favourite in the budget bracket.
