The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 21 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Evan Ferguson (BHA) £4.5m

The Brighton & Hove Albion forward has proven to be a major source of value in Fantasy since the season resumed.

Ferguson emerged from the bench in the 4-2 loss to Arsenal in Gameweek 18 to score a goal and earn five points.

That display helped him secure a starting role in each of the Seagulls' subsequent two matches.

He seized that opportunity, delivering a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win over Everton in Gameweek 19 to claim 11 points.

The 18-year-old continued his run of returns with an assist in Brighton's 3-0 victory over Liverpool last weekend, collecting a further five points.

Although it's uncertain whether Ferguson will remain as the Seagulls' first-choice forward over the rest of the campaign, his form certainly indicates he will start against Leicester City this weekend.

He can take advantage of a Foxes side who have struggled since the season resumed, losing all four of their fixtures.

Brighton, by contrast, are the league's top scorers over the last four Gameweeks with 12 goals.

Indeed, they have been among the most prolific teams in Fantasy since Roberto De Zerbi's arrival.

They have scored 24 goals from that point, bettered only by the 25 of both Arsenal and Newcastle United.

As the focal point of the Seagulls' free-scoring attack, Ferguson looks set to provide more great value in Fantasy this weekend.
