The Scout’s FPL Gameweek 18 Ones to watch

The Scout 29 Dec 2022

See the five players tipped for major hauls ahead of Friday’s deadline in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 18 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Dejan Kulusevski (TOT) £8.0m 

A visit from Aston Villa hands the Tottenham Hotspur winger the chance to continue his run of home returns in Fantasy.

TV Info

Kulusevski has supplied an assist in each of his last three home appearances, collecting 14 points in that period.

The Swede has been far more productive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season.

He has averaged 6.5 points per home start, compared with just 3.0 points per away start.

The Spurs attacker is among five Ones to watch picked by The Scout ahead of Friday's 18:15 GMT deadline.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (FUL) £6.8m

The Fulham forward is the most-bought player in the Gameweek, earning more than 250,000 new owners on the back of his season-high haul of 15 points against Crystal Palace.

Mitrovic can immediately reward that show of faith against Southampton at Craven Cottage.

At home this season, his 36 shots, 32 shots in the box and 10 big chances all place among the top three players in Fantasy.

Fulham also have a Double Gameweek 19 to further lift the Serb's short-term prospects.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.2m

A home encounter with Leicester City can help get the Liverpool right-back return to his best.

TV Info

Alexander-Arnold has disappointed in 2022/23 Fantasy, managing just one goal and one assist.

Yet he has been the Reds’ second most-creative player at Anfield, his 18 key passes bettered only by the 19 of Mohamed Salah (£12.8m).

Furthermore, his five big chances created in home matches ranks third among all players in 2022/23.

Martin Odegaard (ARS) £6.4m

The Arsenal playmaker visits Brighton & Hove Albion on the back of his third double-figure return in four appearances.

TV Info

Odegaard has amassed 40 points in those encounters, combining three goals and two assists with eight bonus points.

The Norwegian was a huge all-round threat against West Ham United on Monday.

Indeed, his six shots and five chances created both placed among the top two players in Gameweek 17.

Marc Cucurella (CHE) £5.1m

The Spaniard is the top target in defence for Gameweek 18 following an injury to his team-mate Reece James (£5.8m).

Cucurella has collected 31,000 new owners ahead of Chelsea's match against Nottingham Forest and upcoming Double Gameweek 19.

He looks less likely to be rotated over that schedule as his rival for the left-back role, Ben Chilwell (£5.8m), is also sidelined through injury.
