The Magpies’ back-up goalkeeper is set for a run of starts after their No 1 Nick Pope (£5.5m) was ruled out for an extended period with a shoulder injury.
Pope is currently the second top-scoring goalkeeper in Fantasy, collecting 56 points thanks to six clean sheets, eight save points and one bonus.
His absence comes at a point when Newcastle are about to embark on a kind short-term run of opponents which lifts their chances of defensive returns.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their three matches over Gameweeks 17-19 score just two.
Dubravka’s ultra-low cost can make him a budget gem over that run, offering managers a value alternative to Kieran Trippier (£7.0m) as a route into the Newcastle backline.
However, the opening of the January transfer window means Dubravka's acquisition in Fantasy comes with a risk attached, as it allows Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe the chance to bring in a replacement for Pope.
If Dubravka can hold onto his role, there is no doubt that his low cost and potential for defensive returns can make him the go-to goalkeeper for many managers.
Ultimately, though, it will be Howe’s post-Gameweek 19 moves in the transfer market that will determine whether Dubravka remains an option beyond the festive period.
