The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 18, ahead of Friday’s 18:15 GMT deadline.

Willian (FUL) £5.5m, 0.1% owned

A tiny ownership makes Willian an ideal differential.

The winger produced an assist and six-point return in Fulham’s 3-0 win at Crystal Palace on Boxing Day.

Willian's underlying numbers highlight his all-round potential ahead of a favourable home match with Southampton.

Since making his Fulham debut in Gameweek 6, Willian’s 10 shots in the box and 16 chances created both place second among team-mates. 

The Brazilian’s upcoming schedule also lifts his appeal. Fulham are one of only two sides with a Double Gameweek 19, facing a trip to Leicester City followed by a home derby against Chelsea.

Dominic Solanke (BOU) £5.8m, 5.5%

The forward has been AFC Bournemouth's key attacker since Gary O’Neil took charge in Gameweek 6.

Solanke has been involved in 50 per cent of their goals when selected from that point, scoring three and assisting a further five.

With an average of 4.9 points per start for O’Neil, Solanke can offer big value at home to a Crystal Palace side who have kept only one clean sheet in their last six outings.

Said Benrahma (WHU) £5.6m, 0.9%

His converted penalty at Arsenal last time out extended Benrahma's improving output in Fantasy. 

TV Info

All of his attacking returns this season, three goals and an assist, have come in West Ham United’s last seven matches.

Benrahma hosts a Brentford side who have struggled on their travels, conceding 12 goals in their previous four road trips.

Joelinton (NEW) £5.9m, 0.6%

Newcastle United's Brazilian is another player who has stepped up his attacking returns.

Joelinton has scored both his goals this season, and supplied one of his three assists, in his previous three matches.

A home match with Leeds United starts a run of kind opponents for the Magpies. 

TV Info

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), four of their next six matches score just two.
