The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 26 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

A home encounter with Everton starts a kind run of fixtures for the Nottingham Forest midfielder.

TV Info

Steve Cooper’s side have five matches in the next four Gameweeks, also facing Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers in that period.

Crucially, their meeting with Newcastle is not under threat of postponement from the FA Cup quarter-finals.

At present, this means Forest are among only five Double Gameweek 29 sides who will not have a Blank Gameweek 28.

Home comforts

Forest’s trio of home matches look particularly encouraging for Gibbs-White’s potential.

He has produced all his attacking returns this season, two goals and six assists, at the City Ground.

The 23-year-old averages 5.6 points per match (ppm) at home, compared with a mere 1.8ppm on his travels.

He has amassed a team-leading total of 64 points at home this season, placing him fourth among midfielders in Fantasy. 

Attacking star

The underlying numbers further highlight the influence of Gibbs-White on the Forest attack.

He has produced 20 shots and created 20 chances since the season resumed in Gameweek 17, both more than any team-mate.

Forest’s kind upcoming run of home fixtures, in addition to a visit to relegation rivals Leeds United, gives Gibbs-White the chance to get more goals and assists.
