Fantasy Premier League

GW16 Ones to watch: Lukasz Fabianski

Providing points from all angles, the Swansea goalkeeper remains outstanding value in Fantasy, says The Scout

The Scout is selecting five Fantasy Premier League players set to make an impact in Gameweek 16.

Lukasz Fabianski (SWA) £4.6m

The Swansea City goalkeeper can be as vital to Fantasy Premier League managers as he is for his team over the coming month.

The Pole has had an outstanding season, making more saves (61) than any other goalkeeper.

As a result, he has become a leading cut-price option in FPL.

Goalkeepers earn a point for every three saves they make in a match.

Fabianski's shot-stopping has produced 15 points, again more than any other counterpart.

This means that, even against tougher opposition who may deny him a clean sheet, he can still produce points for FPL owners.

Player Team Save points
Fabianski SWA 15
De Gea MUN 13
Forster SOU 12
Schmeichel LEI 11
Pickford EVE 11
 

His save count also benefits Fabianski in the Bonus Points System (BPS).

He ranks second only to David De Gea (£5.8m and 340) for BPS with a score of 314 and has earned five bonus points.

Overall, he sits joint-third in the goalkeeper standings on 61 points.

With 13.7 points per million, again only De Gea (14.3) can better Fabianski.

Baggies opportunities

West Bromwich Albion provide his next opponent in Gameweek 16 after failing to score in three of their last five away matches and after playing out a goalless draw in Alan Pardew's first match in charge at home to Crystal Palace.

No side have had fewer penalty-area shots (24) away from home this season.

Fabianski has delivered a clean sheet or a save point in 12 of his 15 Gameweek starts.

Consistent returns

That consistency is no surprise based on his previous campaigns.

He has scored over 110 FPL points in each of the last three seasons, ranking in the top three for saves each time.

A sixth clean sheet will be the target on Saturday. Following that, Fabianski's ability to provide save points can come to the fore in the Gameweek 17 meeting with leaders Manchester City.

Supplying shutouts, saves or bonus points, few goalkeepers are more reliable or better value than Fabianski.
