The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Blank Gameweek 12 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.7m

The Liverpool attacker's return to form has made him the top target for managers in Gameweek 12 of Fantasy Premier League.

Salah is the most-bought player ahead of Tuesday's 18:00 BST deadline, earning 277,000 new owners for the Reds' home match with West Ham United

Salah's winner against Manchester City on Sunday took his tally to four goals in his last two matches in all competitions.

And with both Man City and Arsenal without a fixture in Blank Gameweek 12, the Egyptian star could also be the most-selected captain for the midweek matches. 

Crucially, Salah has a fine home record against the Hammers, scoring in four of their last five meetings at Anfield.

Eberechi Eze (CRY) £5.6m

The Crystal Palace midfielder welcomes Wolverhampton Wanderers on the back of a goal and a 10-point haul in his previous home appearance.

Eze has been a major all-round influence on the Eagles' attack at Selhurst Park, with his 12 shots and seven chances created placing him among their top two players.

Wolves, meanwhile, have been poor in defence on their travels, losing four of their five road trips this term.

Lewis Dunk (BHA) £4.6m

A home encounter with Nottingham Forest lifts the Brighton & Hove Albion defender's prospects in Fantasy.

Dunk's aerial threat will cause major problems for a Forest side who have struggled to defend set-pieces this season.

He also offers a strong chance of a clean sheet, with Forest having scored only one away goal in their five road trips.

Miguel Almiron (NEW) £5.2m

The Paraguayan has stepped up his output of late, scoring three goals and earning 25 points in Newcastle United's last three fixtures.

Almiron's 22 shots, 15 shots in the box and seven shots on target all rank among the Magpies' top two players this season.

Opponents Everton, meanwhile, have conceded 167 shots and 119 shots in the box, both more than any other side. 

Timothy Castagne (LEI) £4.4m

The Leicester City full-back has proven outstanding value in Fantasy recently.

Castagne has collected 23 points in his last four matches, combing an assist with three clean sheets and three bonus points.

He can extend that run at home to a Leeds United side who have scored just once in their last three fixtures.

GW12 deadline: 18:00 BST, Tue 18 Oct
