GW2 Ones to watch: Charlie Daniels

Popular AFC Bournemouth defender backed for big FPL Gameweek 2 against injury-hit opponents

The Scout names the fourth of five players to watch in Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 2.

Charlie Daniels (DEF) £5.0m

The AFC Bournemouth left-back is the fourth-most popular defender in FPL. He produced four goals and three assists last season.

Daniels comes up against a Watford side who conceded three goals at home to Liverpool in their opening match.

He comes alive as a Fantasy option at Vitality Stadium.

Across the past two seasons, Daniels has supplied four goals and six assists in home matches. He has managed only three goals and two assists on his travels.

The underlying numbers during those two campaigns back this up.

Daniels has fired more shots (23 to 16) and created more than double the number of chances (44 to 20) on home turf.

Daniels' attacking style is encouraged by manager Eddie Howe.

In the attacking third last season, Daniels was ranked among the top six FPL defenders for touches (407), passes received (263) and successful passes (236).

This looks promising when assessing the Watford defence.

The Hornets conceded seven chances down their right flank against Liverpool, compared with two on their left.

And the visitors have fitness concerns over first-choice right-back Daryl Janmaat (£5.0m), who limped off early against Liverpool. 


Howe’s men will be keen to bounce back with a victory following an opening-weekend loss at West Bromwich Albion.

Daniels can be the key man in achieving that, delivering for Howe and an army of FPL owners.
