7 Sep 2018

A new role and spot-kick duties mean FPL managers should target Watford striker

With four wins from their opening four matches, Watford players are becoming hot property in Fantasy Premier League.

In the latest FPL Show, experts Mark McGettigan and Opta's Duncan Alexander run the rule over Watford stars who could produce returns for your team.

Striker Troy Deeney (£6.1m) has caught the eye. Having produced two goals and one assist already, he lies fifth in the FPL striker standings with 23 points.

McGettigan believes a switch in Watford's formation, as well as Deeney's role as penalty-taker, makes him a worthy target.

"It's not very often nowadays we see two out-and-out strikers playing together, but I have been very impressed with the link-up play between Deeney and [Andre] Gray," McGettigan says.

"Penalties are always a big pull factor in FPL. He has a pretty good record from the spot so he is another one on my Watchlist."
