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

Richarlison (EVE) £6.9m

The Brazilian has benefitted from being handed a role up front by manager Marco Silva for Everton this season.

Richarlison has produced nine goals and two assists in 19 Gameweek appearances in 2018/19.

However, his recent lack of output has persuaded many FPL managers to sell him.

The Brazilian has dropped £0.2m in price over the last four Gameweeks, having produced just one goal and one assist.

Yet his underlying statistics show he has been unfortunate not to bring in more points during that period.

Richarlison’s total of 10 shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks ranks joint-top with Eden Hazard (£11.1m) among FPL midfielders.

And his upcoming schedule looks promising for a return to form.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only one of Everton's next seven opponents score more than three.

Everton GW22-28
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  

That hands Richarlison the chance to get back among the goals for his 29.4 per cent ownership.
