The Scout's Wildcard squads: Big up front

See why early-season trends suggest Fantasy managers should pick three premium forwards

Many Fantasy Premier League managers are playing their Wildcard in the international break so The Scout is on hand to provide options.

As well as The Scout's Wildcard squad, here are three different approaches you could take based on your own preferences for tactics and players: big in defence; big in midfield; or big up front.

Going big up front

The top three points-scorers in 2022/23 Fantasy are forwards. 

Erling Haaland (£12.0m) has returned in every Gameweek, registering 73 points. Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane (£11.4m) has blanked only once, totalling 50 points, while Ivan Toney (£7.2m) is only three points behind.

Meanwhile, premium midfielder Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) has produced a goal or assist in just three of his six matches.

Fantasy managers deploying their Wildcard may therefore want to shift funds from midfield to their forward line. 

Managers opting for in a big-up-front Wildcard could pair Haaland and Kane with the likes of Darwin Nunez (£8.9m) or Gabriel Jesus (£8.1m) instead of Toney, like in this squad below.
