The Scout says in-form Algerian can be worth the rotation risk for Man City's Double Gameweek

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League

Riyad Mahrez (MCI) £7.5m

The winger is owned by only 2.2 per cent of managers for Manchester City’s Double Gameweek 20 against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Mahrez has been a key figure for Pep Guardiola’s side since domestic action resumed following the FIFA World Cup 2022.

He has scored four goals and supplied two assists in five outings across all competitions, blanking only once.

That form has helped him secure a regular role, with the Algerian starting four of those five matches.

Risk and reward

Mahrez showed his potential for huge hauls in Fantasy last season when named in Man City's XI.

His total of six double-figure returns was second only to the seven of Kevin De Bruyne (£12.5m) for Guardiola’s side.

However, he started only 15 matches compared with the Belgian’s 25.

There is no doubt that Guardiola’s rotation policy is a big deterrent for many managers in Fantasy.

But Mahrez has the form to reward those willing to take the risk on Man City’s teamsheets for their Double Gameweek.
