The defensive records of the Magpies' opponents highlight the potential for attacking returns.
Top Newcastle scorers, GW32-35
Wilson has been Newcastle's top performer in Fantasy of late, scoring five goals and earning 32 points in the last four matches.
Isak, meanwhile, has scored twice and supplied an assist in that run to collect 23.
While the pair are near-identical for shots in the box, with Wilson leading by nine to Isak’s eight, Wilson has had more than double the number of big chances.
Due to his superior-quality scoring opportunities, Wilson has also been far more accurate, bettering Isak by seven shots on target to two.

Assessing the minutes of Wilson and Isak can help to determine the better option.
Wilson is clearly the less likely of the pair to start, having been named in the starting XI in only three of the last 10 matches.
But, while Isak is a more secure starter, the Swede's minutes have also been managed recently.
Indeed, Isak has averaged just seven minutes per appearance more than Wilson in the last four matches, despite the latter only starting twice.

With little to separate them in terms of minutes recently, Wilson looks the more attractive pick for those seeking a single Newcastle forward.
But doubling up on both Newcastle forwards seems the best tactic to profit from their matches against two struggling defences.
Elsewhere in the Newcastle attack, Joe Willock (£4.7m) has boasted a significant goal threat.
His 12 shots over the last four matches is a team-leading total, while his seven shots in the box are more than any other Newcastle midfielder.
Willock also fares well when it comes to creating chances, with his nine key passes putting him joint-second alongside Bruno Guimaraes (£5.5m).

Kieran Trippier’s (£6.1m) patient 67 per cent ownership also have every reason to be optimistic.
The right-back may have blanked in seven straight appearances, yet his 15 chances created are at least six more than any team-mate.
It is worth noting that Isak fares better than Wilson here, supplying four key passes compared to two.
