The Aston Villa forward has scored eight goals and supplied two assists across his last 10 matches, blanking on just one occasion.
Forest, meanwhile, have struggled in defence on their travels, conceding at least twice in each of their last four away trips.
Watkins takes his place in a 3-4-3 formation, with Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) handed the armband and Erling Haaland (£12.0m) named vice-captain.
Emiliano Martinez (AVL) £4.9m
The goalkeeper has been among Villa’s top performers in recent matches. Martinez has kept four clean sheets and earned 40 points in his last six appearances.
Ben Chilwell (CHE) £6.0m
Chelsea’s wing-back offers multiple routes to returns at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Chilwell has combined a goal and an assist with two clean sheets and four bonus points in his last five matches, earning 28 points.
John Stones (MCI) £5.4m
The Manchester City defender has been moved into a central midfield role ahead of his visit to Southampton. With his aerial threat, Stones can also take advantage of Saints’ weaknesses in defending set-pieces.
Kieran Trippier (NEW) £6.1m
Newcastle United’s right-back sits joint-fourth with Rashford in the player standings on 168 points. Trippier visits Brentford on the back of a 12-point haul against Manchester United last weekend, combining a clean sheet and an assist with three bonus points.
Bukayo Saka (ARS) £8.6m
The Arsenal winger has recorded two of his three double-figure hauls this season in his last four starts. Saka’s other big score was in his previous meeting with his hosts Liverpool, netting twice and collecting 15 points in Gameweek 10.
James Maddison (LEI) £8.3m
A home match against AFC Bournemouth can help the Leicester City playmaker return to form. Maddison’s visitors have conceded a league-high 60 shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks.
Marcus Rashford (MUN) £7.3m
The Man Utd star is the top-scoring player in Fantasy since the season resumed, earning 106 points thanks to 11 goals and two assists in 14 appearances. Rashford has seven double-figure hauls at home in 2022/23, at least two more than any other player.
Kaoru Mitoma (BHA) £5.6m
Brighton & Hove Albion's winger visits Tottenham Hotspur on the back of two goals, four assists and 39 points in his last five outings. Mitoma’s average of 6.7 points per start is second only to the 7.9 of Haaland among regular starters in 2022/23 Fantasy.
Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.0m
Man City’s Norwegian is back in full training ahead of their trip to Southampton. Haaland’s 40 shots in the box and 22 big chances in away matches are both league-leading totals this term.
Harry Kane (TOT) £11.7m
The England star is the top-scoring forward in Fantasy since the season resumed, earning 87 points thanks to 10 goals and three assists. Kane has scored in four of his previous six matches against Brighton, including a strike at the Amex Stadium earlier this term.
Ollie Watkins (AVL) £7.5m
He is the most-bought forward in the Gameweek, earning over 136,000 new owners ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 BST deadline.
