The Scout on why Man Utd full-back has fixtures to reward growing band of owners in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Double Gameweek 29 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £5.2m

Managers have rushed to the Manchester United left-back ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.

Shaw is the most-bought defender for Double Gameweek 29, earning 110,000+ new owners for his matches against Newcastle United and Brentford.

He has been in excellent form since the season resumed following the FIFA World Cup 2022.

He has combined one goal and two assists with six clean sheets across his 12 outings, collecting a further 11 bonus points.

Indeed, Shaw’s 64 points in that period make him the top-scoring defender in Fantasy since the season resumed.

The underlying numbers show the full-back’s influence on his side’s attack.

He has created 14 chances in that period, second only to the 38 of Bruno Fernandes (£9.6m) among team-mates.

Man Utd’s long-term schedule suggests Shaw can emerge as a key figure in managers’ line-ups over the run-in.

They face Everton and Nottingham Forest in Gameweeks 30 and 31 respectively.

Although Man Utd then have a Blank Gameweek 32, they are one of six sides who have a Double Gameweek 34, facing Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion.

They also have a match against Chelsea still to be rescheduled, which is likely to result in another Double Gameweek later in the campaign.

Shaw’s potential for points at both ends of the pitch, combined with Man Utd’s extra matches, means he can richly reward his owners for the remainder of the season.
