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

Each player can be found in no more than 10 per cent of squads ahead of Saturday’s 13:30 GMT deadline.

Leon Bailey (Aston Villa) £5.6m

The Aston Villa winger has the form and fixtures to provide major value in Fantasy over the coming period.

Bailey has produced seven goals and seven assists this season, with his 14 goal involvements already surpassing the combined total of 13 from his previous two campaigns. 

Unai Emery’s side face Nottingham Forest and Luton Town in the next two Gameweeks, handing Bailey the chance to extend his impressive season.

In addition, Villa are currently one of only five sides who are scheduled to play in both Blank Gameweek 26 (BGW26) and Blank Gameweek 29 (BGW29) due to their exit from the FA Cup.

That lifts the appeal of their key players for those managers who are keen to avoid playing their Free Hit chip in either BGW26 or BGW29, instead keeping it for Double Gameweeks later in 2023/24 Fantasy.

Bruno Fernandes (Man Utd) £8.2m

Manchester United’s playmaker offers multiple routes to returns at home to Fulham.

Fernandes has produced 17 key passes in the last four Gameweeks, joint-top with Martin Odegaard (£8.4m) among all players in Fantasy.

The Portuguese’s dead-ball duties, in particular, could pose big problems for his visitors this weekend. Indeed, the Cottagers have conceded a league-high 30 shots from set-piece situations in the last four matches.

Fernandes also showed an eye for goal in his previous encounter with Fulham. His winner at Craven Cottage in Gameweek 11 earned him an 11-point haul, which was the last time he claimed a double-digit return this season.

Craig Dawson (Wolves) £4.5m

The Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back boasts strong home form ahead of a visit from Sheffield United

Dawson has delivered 34 points across his last six appearances at Molineux, combining a goal and an assist with three clean sheets and five bonus points. 

He looks a strong candidate to collect another shutout against a Blades side who have failed to score in two of their last three matches.

Dawson’s threat from free-kicks and corners can also help him to more returns. His total of 13 shots from set-pieces ranks second for Wolves, further underlining his prospects for a big haul this weekend. 

Simon Adingra (Brighton) £5.0m

Brighton & Hove Albion’s winger hosts Everton on the back of his career-high haul of 15 points last weekend.

Adingra marked his return from the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) by scoring twice in the Seagulls’ 5-0 win over Sheff Utd. 

His brace in Gameweek 25 means the Ivorian has now delivered double-figure scores in two of his last four league outings.

Adingra's first goal v Sheff Utd

Brighton’s short-term schedule gives Adingra the opportunity to continue his improving output in Fantasy, with favourable contests against Fulham and Nott’m Forest also to follow in the next three Gameweeks.
