The Scout says Leicester City playmaker’s statistics point to a successful weekend visit to Wolves

The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 23 in Fantasy Premier League.

James Maddison (LEI) £6.8m

The Leicester City playmaker is owned by only 4.5 per cent of FPL managers for his trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Maddison has managed one assist in his last four appearances, in a 1-0 win over Chelsea in Gameweek 18.

But his underlying statistics show his big attacking threat for the Foxes.

James Maddison Player Profile

Maddison’s 12 shots in the last four Gameweeks ranks him third among midfielders.

And his total of 12 chances created is second only to the 14 of Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) among all players. 

Generous hosts

Wolves have struggled to keep out their opponents in recent months, with just one clean sheet in their 14 last matches.

Maddison has already profited against his weekend opponents, with a goal and nine FPL points in Gameweek 2.

He has the form to take advantage of Wolves' lack of resilience again, offering an enticing option in the mid-price midfield bracket.
