The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 17 of Fantasy Premier League.

Chicharito (WHU) £6.4m

A recent change of tactics has raised the Mexican’s prospects in Fantasy.

West Ham United’s new 4-4-2 formation has allowed Chicharito to start each of the last three Gameweeks.

And he has returned three goals, an assist and 24 points during that period.

Eye-catching form

Chicharito’s goal spree has caught the eye of Fantasy managers for his Gameweek 17 trip to Fulham.

Indeed, he is the second-most bought forward, earning over 86,000 new owners.

The Mexican looks set to retain his starting role at Craven Cottage, with Marko Arnautovic (£7.0m) ruled out through injury.

Shooting star

And his statistics since his return to the starting line-up suggest that Chicharito can get among the goals again.

Only three players have bettered his seven shots inside the penalty area over Gameweeks 14 to 16.

Furthermore, his total of six big chances is more than any other player.

A big chance is a situation where the player receiving the pass is expected to score.

Porous defence

He will face a Fulham defence that has offered little resilience this season, conceding in all 16 Gameweeks.

And with some favourable fixtures up until Gameweek 21, Chicharito can be a very handy value option for FPL managers this winter.
