The Scout is tipping four low-owned players for a breakthrough Gameweek in 2023/24 Fantasy Premier League. All four are selected by less than four per cent of managers ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

Callum Wilson (Newcastle) £7.8m

Newcastle United’s fit-again forward could benefit from their busy upcoming schedule in Fantasy.

The Magpies face AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening and then visit Chelsea in the EFL Cup quarter-finals six days later.

If Eddie Howe opts for Alexander Isak (£7.6m) as his lone striker in those encounters, Wilson’s chances of starting two of the next three Gameweeks in Fantasy look very strong.
The forward’s assist at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend continued his excellent form when selected.

Wilson has blanked in only four of his 11 appearances this season, and three of those were as a substitute.

Newcastle face Fulham, Luton Town and Nottingham Forest in their next three matches, handing Wilson the ideal opportunity to get more attacking returns.

Marcos Senesi (Bournemouth) £4.4m

The centre-back’s influence at both ends of the pitch has been instrumental in AFC Bournemouth’s current five-match unbeaten run. 

Senesi has scored twice and helped the Cherries to three clean sheets in that period, with his total of 36 points placing third among all players in Fantasy. 

Bournemouth’s short-term schedule gives the Argentinian the chance to continue offering excellent value in Fantasy. 

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), each of their next three matches, against Luton, Nott’m Forest and Fulham, score only two.

Senesi's goals v Palace & Man Utd
Abdoulaye Doucoure (Everton) £5.6m

Everton’s midfielder has also proven to be an overlooked gem in the last five Gameweeks. 

Doucoure ranks joint-fourth among all players on 34 points in that period, scoring three goals and supplying an assist.

His back-to-back strikes against Newcastle and Chelsea in the last two Gameweeks look ominous for his hosts Burnley at Turf Moor. 

The Clarets have conceded 20 goals in eight home matches, the second-most in the league.

Dejan Kulusevski (Spurs) £7.0m

A change of position could help Spurs' Swede get back to his best in Fantasy.

Kulusevski has mainly featured as a right winger under Ange Postecoglou, but was handed a central attacking role in Spurs' 4-1 win over Newcastle last weekend.

Although he failed to earn any attacking returns, Kulusevski’s five key passes and two big chances created both matched his season-high totals.

That promising display can lift his appeal in Fantasy as Spurs embark on a very kind run of opponents.
According to the FDR, three of their next four matches, including their trip to Nott’m Forest on Friday evening, score only two.
