The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 26 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.
Phil Foden (MCI) £8.0m
The Manchester City midfielder could appeal to managers looking to “dead end” their squads with a risky pick or two before a Gameweek 27 Wildcard.
Foden had struggled for pitch time and played just 34 minutes in his side’s five matches across Gameweeks 20-23.
However, his prospects in Fantasy have benefitted from Man City’s recent return to action in the UEFA Champions League.
He he has now started each of their last two Gameweeks thanks to Guardiola’s rotation policy.

That helped him collect 13 points, his second-best total of the campaign.
If Foden can get back to his best, there is no doubt he can play a significant role in the final three months of the Fantasy season.
He was the top-scoring midfielder in the opening 11 Gameweeks, producing six goals, four assists and 64 points.
A calculated risk
Managers who are looking to invest in Man City should be aware they will have a Blank Gameweek 28 if they win their midweek FA Cup encounter with Bristol City.
As a single-Gameweek punt, though, Foden has the improving form to make a big impact against Newcastle on Saturday.
