The Scout is tipping four low-owned players for a breakthrough Gameweek in 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League.

Rico Henry (BRE) £4.5m

The Brentford defender enjoyed a successful start to the campaign, supplying an assist against Tottenham Hotspur to collect four points.

Playing as a wing-back, Henry was a key figure for the Bees in Sunday's 2-2 draw.

He supplied a team-high three key passes, while his two big chances created ranked joint-top among all players in Fantasy in the opening round of matches.

A visit to Fulham starts a run of kind opponents that can lift Henry’s output at both ends of the pitch.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of Brentford’s next three matches scores only two.

3 CRY (H) 2
4 BOU (H) 2
Luis Diaz (LIV) £7.5m

The Colombian was Liverpool’s top performer in Fantasy against Chelsea in Gameweek 1, scoring and earning eight points at Stamford Bridge.

Diaz was the Reds’ standout goal threat in the 1-1 draw, with his four shots in the box being at least twice the total of any team-mate.

A home match against AFC Bournemouth gives the winger the opportunity to build momentum.

Diaz was a huge success in the corresponding fixture last term, scoring twice to collect 14 points.

Richarlison (TOT) £7.0m

Harry Kane’s departure from Spurs has lifted the Brazilian’s potential in Fantasy.

Listed as a midfielder in FPL, Richarlison played as a forward in his side's 2-2 draw with Brentford last weekend.

An ownership of just 4.1 per cent makes him a tempting differential route into Ange Postecoglou’s attacking team at home to Manchester United.

The Red Devils were somewhat fortunate to keep a clean sheet against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday evening.

They conceded 17 shots in the box in Gameweek 1, better only than the 20 of Luton Town.

Taiwo Awoniyi (NFO) £6.5m

Nottingham Forest’s forward has immediately rediscovered the form he showed at the end of last season.

TV Info

Awoniyi’s goal against Arsenal in Gameweek 1 means he has scored in each of his side’s last five matches in Fantasy.

The Nigerian has amassed 45 points in that run, thanks to six goals and nine bonus points.

After featuring off the bench at Emirates Stadium, Awoniyi looks set to return to Nott’m Forest’s starting XI at home to Sheffield United on Friday evening. 

The Blades struggled in defence in their match against Crystal Palace last time out. 

Their total of 17 shots conceded in the box was the joint second-most, along with Man Utd.
