Fantasy football scout: 9 overlooked players you might have missed
Jamie Vardy (Leicester)
A late-season change of manager transformed the Foxes frontman last time out. Vardy will set you back £8.5m, having averaged 7.0 points per match after the appointment of Craig Shakespeare, producing eight goals and five assists in 13 appearances.
Jay Rodriguez (West Brom)
The Baggies’ summer signing from Southampton has been quick to settle. Available for just £6.0m, Rodriguez has netted twice over pre-season and is up against just one of last season’s top eight in the first eight gameweeks.
Steve Mounie (Huddersfield)
A towering presence up front, the new signing delivered 14 goals and three assists for Montpellier last season. Mounie has netted four times already over the summer friendlies to suggest he could offer value for three-man forward lines at a cost of £6.0m.
