FPL Wildcard targets: Lucas Digne

The Scout 5 Jan 2019

The Scout says Everton left-back has the schedule to supply more goals and assists

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

Lucas Digne (EVE) £5.2m

Everton's full-back has been a major source of creativity down their left flank.

Digne has created 37 goalscoring chances for his team-mates, at least 12 more than any other defender in FPL.

That suggests he has been unfortunate only to earn two assists for the Toffees.

The Frenchman’s role as the first-choice pick for corners and free-kicks also plays a big part in raising his prospects in Fantasy.

Indeed, all three of Digne's goals have arrived from set-pieces.

That helped him to impressive hauls of 10 and 17 points in his last six appearances.

Everton's upcoming schedule also points to more returns for their raiding left-back.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only one of their next seven opponents scores more than three.

Everton's next seven Gameweeks
GW Opp FDR GW Opp FDR
22 BOU (H) 2 26 WAT (A) 3
23 SOU (A) 2 27 MCI (H) 4
24 HUD (A) 2 28 CAR (A) 2
25 WOL (H) 3  

Digne's potential for attacking returns looks very encouraging for his 12.9 per cent ownership over the next couple of months.
