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

Alexander Isak (NEW) £6.6m

The fit-again forward is owned by only 1.3 per cent of managers for Newcastle United's encounter against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Isak made an immediate impact as a substitute against Fulham last weekend, his first appearance since Gameweek 8 as he scored the decisive goal in the 1-0 win to claim eight points.

That means Isak has now scored in three of his four appearances since joining the Magpies, also netting against Liverpool and AFC Bournemouth.

He has averaged a goal every 89 minutes for Eddie Howe's side, compared with the 161 minutes of his fellow forward Callum Wilson (£7.2m).

Although Wilson supplied the assist against the Cottagers on Sunday, he has struggled for output and last scored in Gameweek 14.

This shows why Isak is expected to reclaim the role as Newcastle's lone striker once he is fully fit.

The upcoming schedule certainly looks encouraging for the Swede's prospects.

Aside from the meeting against Palace, Newcastle face two of the bottom three, West Ham United and AFC Bournemouth, in the next three Gameweeks.

Isak can exploit that kind run of opponents and extend his prolific record for the Magpies.
