The Scout's panel of experts discuss the best budget options to target in Fantasy Premier League.

Leeds United have fully embraced Jesse Marsch's ideology of vertical football and look to be a side who will play on the front foot.

Rodrigo (£6.3m) and Brenden Aaronson (£5.5m) are both excellent options with a good run of fixtures.

Another player with a great schedule is Brighton & Hove Albion’s Pascal Gross (£5.7m). He takes their set-pieces, although he is not on penalties, as we found out this weekend.

The signs were there for Rodrigo after his hot pre-season form. He seems to have continued in the new campaign with some impressive returns. Have Leeds found their Raphinha 2.0?

Leeds and Brighton are two teams who definitely interest me. The fixtures are there for both and the likes of Aaronson, Rodrigo, Danny Welbeck (£6.5m), who is owned by only 1.5 per cent of managers, and Lewis Dunk (£4.5m) are on my Watchlist.

The player who stands out for me is Jack Harrison (£6.0m). I feel we have missed the boat with Rodrigo, and I also question his future minutes.

Leeds’ decent start to the season has seen a few of their midfielders jump on to our FPL radars. I've been particularly impressed with Aaronson, who scored his first goal of 2022/23 against Chelsea at the weekend.
