The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 28 in Fantasy Premier League

Ricardo Pereira (LEI) £4.3m

The full-back is found in less than 0.1 per cent of squads for Leicester City’s trip to Brentford.

After a long spell on the sidelines through injury, Ricardo made his first start of the season in Gameweek 26.

He has been quick to make an impact for Leicester, supplying an assist in their 3-1 defeat by Chelsea last weekend.

The underlying numbers show Ricardo’s attacking potential in Fantasy.

His three key passes over the last two Gameweeks were second only to the seven of James Maddison (£8.1m) among Leicester players.

The Foxes' schedule suggests Ricardo could prove an excellent value pick in defence for future Gameweeks, too.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), seven of their next nine matches score only two.

Leicester's matches from GW28-36
28 BRE (A) 3 32 WOL (H) 2
29 CRY (A) 2 33 LEE (A) 2
29 AVL (H) 2 34 EVE (H) 2
30 BOU (H) 2 35 FUL (A) 2
31 MCI (A) 5 36 LIV (H) 4

Notably, both Leicester's Double Gameweek 29 encounters with Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are among those favourable fixtures.

That schedule, combined with his all-round style of play, can help Ricardo emerge as a budget gem in Fantasy.
