FPL Wildcard targets: Jordan Pickford

The Scout 6 Jan 2018
Jordan Pickford - Everton vs Watford

Everton goalkeeper's form and bonus-point potential is tempting managers needing change, says The Scout

With the second Fantasy Premier League Wildcard available, The Scout reviews the top targets to consider for the chip.

Jordan Pickford (EVE) £4.9m

Everton’s recent defensive form has sent Pickford's stock soaring.

His five clean sheets and 59 points since Gameweek 14 are more than any other goalkeeper.

Over those nine matches, he has made 31 saves from 37 shots on target faced to register a save percentage of 83.8, the highest in the Premier League.

His shot-stopping has earned 11 bonus points during that run and made Pickford the joint top-ranked goalkeeper for bonus, tied with Nick Pope (£4.8m) on 12.

Players earn a point in the Bonus Points System (BPS) for every three recoveries made and Pickford excels in this area also, making 239, more than any other goalkeeper.

He has earned a recovery every 8.2 minutes, second only to Pope's 7.6 minutes.
