GW22 Ones to watch: Ben Mee

Mee, Brentford

The Scout says Brentford centre-back has been among standout defenders at home in 2022/23

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 22 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Ben Mee (BRE) £4.8m 

The Brentford centre-back boasts strong all-round potential at home to Southampton

TV Info

Mee has combined two goals with four clean sheets and six bonus points in his last 10 outings at the Gtech Community Stadium this season.

Indeed, his total of 51 home points ranks third among all defenders, bettered only by Newcastle United duo Kieran Trippier (£6.1m) and Fabian Schar (£5.2m), with 77 and 55 respectively.

Brentford’s major threat at set-pieces could prove decisive on Saturday.

They have scored nine goals from free-kicks and corners this season. Only Fulham, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, with 10, have a higher total.

Set-piece threat

Mee has been a major part of that threat, scoring both his goals from set-pieces.

Furthermore, his eight headed shots in such situations is more than any team-mate.

Southampton, meanwhile, have struggled to defend set-pieces under Nathan Jones.

They have conceded 19 headed shots since his appointment in Gameweek 16, the fourth-worst record in the league.

Defensively sound

Brentford have also impressed in defence recently, keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four matches.

They face a Saints side that has not scored in two of their last three outings.

Added to his goal threat at set-pieces, Mee can reward managers with more home points in Gameweek 22.
