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

Brentford’s run of fixtures lifts the appeal of investing in their key players.

The Bees have six matches in the next four Gameweeks, more than any other side.

They have a Double Gameweek 27 and Double Gameweek 29, and also entertain Leicester City in Blank Gameweek 28.

Brentford's next four Gameweeks
26 FUL (H) 2
27 EVE (A), SOU (A) 2, 2
28 LEI (H) 3
29 BHA (A), MUN (A) 3, 4

That schedule gets under way with a home encounter against Fulham on Monday.

Mbeumo entertains the Cottagers in excellent form at the Gtech Community Stadium.

He has scored twice and supplied three assists in Brentford’s last four home encounters, amassing a team-leading 31 points in that run.

The underlying statistics show Mbeumo’s all-round influence on the Bees’ attack.

His three big chances and four shots on target were joint-top with Ivan Toney (£7.6m) in those four contests.

Furthermore, his six key passes were more than any team-mate.

Despite his recent form, Mbeumo has largely been overlooked ahead of Brentford’s kind schedule.

He can be found in a mere 3.2 per cent of squads, whereas Toney is owned by 27 per cent of managers and is the most-bought player in the Gameweek.

That suggests Mbeumo can offer major value as an alternative to Toney or as a short-term option in attack.
