Lessons learned: Budget forwards make their case

Managers have two new cheap strikers to consider up front, The Scout says

Oumar Niasse used Gameweek 6 as a platform to push for a role as a budget Fantasy Premier League option.

The Everton striker came off the bench to score a brace and 11 points in the 2-1 win over AFC Bournemouth.

Niasse has been added to the game with a £5.0m price tag and gives managers a fresh, low-budget forward.

Tomer Hemed (£5.0m) is another cut-price player making a claim for recognition.

He took his tally to two goals and an assist from his last three Gameweeks in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Newcastle United.

Hemed, of Brighton & Hove Albion, has scored or assisted 20 goals in his last 23 starts at the Amex Stadium.

But managers will wait to hear of any possible retrospective action for a coming-together with DeAndre Yedlin (£4.4m).
