Fantasy Football Scout: GW16 Scout Picks

The final Gameweek before we the schedule eases up (aside from European qualifiers), Gameweek 16 kicks off less than 48 hours after the final ball was kicked between AIK and Östersund. The game between Falkenberg and AIK promises to be a surprisingly nervy affair, while a new look Hammarby entertains an in form Elfsborg side who impressed in midweek. Unlikely to be a week with many clean sheets, with tired legs in most squads, this time the Scout targets attacking returns.

GOALKEEPER

Aly Keita 5.4m 
15 points clear at the top of the goalkeeper charts, Aly Keita is having a great season in an Östersund side seemingly destined for a relegation battle. 17 defensive bonus along with 72 saves so far, Keita at home to Kalmar gets the nod this week. 

DEFENDERS

Aslak Fonn Witry 7.4m 
Aslak Fonn Witry has two assists from his two last games and has now gathered 9 offensive and 9 defensive bonus points on the season. He’s on many set pieces and is a driving force down the right side of the field; Witry could be too much for Örebro to handle. 

Johan Larsson 6.0m 
His first goal in midweek to go along with his 7 assists this season, Johan Larsson is quickly turning fantasy managers heads and rising in price. Away to Hammarby, a clean sheet might be asking too much. Attacking returns and bonus points, however, are far from unlikely. 

Rasmus Lauritsen 7.2m 
While Norrköping continue to drop off from their early season form, there are encouraging signs from Rasmus Lauritsen. With 5 shots (all off target) in his last two games, he is demonstrating continued attacking threat - he just needs to better his aim. Against Göteborg, who have kept one clean sheet in their last ten games, Lauritsen could prosper again.


MIDFIELDERS 

Stefano Vecchia 6.2m 
Probably the most in form midfielder in Allsvenskan, Stefano Vecchia now has an incredible 6 goals and 5 assists from his last six appearances. Away to the same Helsingborg side he notes 12 points against in Gameweek 15, Vecchia retains his spot in the Scout Picks. 

Simon Olsson 5.4m 
1 goal and 3 assists on the season will not impress many, but Simon Olsson is showing signs of being more involved in the attack. Getting 1 goal and 2 assists from his last three games, he has also managed 4 offensive and 3 defensive bonus points in the same period. 

Nabil Bahoui 8.9m 
While AIK continue to struggle on all fronts, one of the few looking threatening is Nabil Bahoui. Taking up a spot beside the striker against Östersund, he fired off 3 shots and managed 2 offensive bonus points for his contributions. AIK face Falkenberg, a game they simply have to win, and though it won’t be easy Bahoui looks likely to be involve going forward. 

Ahmed Yasin 7.9m 
Despite losing minutes to everyone’s budget gem Patrik Wålemark, Ahmed Yasin looks like the probable first choice down the right hand side for Häcken. He had 5 shots away to Varberg and scored a goal, his second of the season. At home to the same opposition, Yasin will want to make sure he keeps the young Wålemark on the bench for longer periods of time going forward. 

Anders Christiansen 10.3m 
Having served his suspension in Gameweek 15, Anders Christiansen returns to the squad and most likely the starting lineup. The coming Gameweeks can be difficult to navigate due to rotation, as Malmö has European qualifiers, but he should feature in some capacity away to Mjällby. One of the highest scoring midfielders yet still arguably slightly disappointing so far, there should be more to come from the industrious Dane.

FORWARDS 

Gustav Ludwigson 7.1m 
Gustav Ludwigson seems to thrive in the 3-5-2 system, rather then as the spearhead of Stefan Billborn's preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. The added forward partner gives him more space and against Norrköping he had 6 shots. It remains to be seen how often Billborn choses to deploy the system, but Ludwigson ,with his 4 goals and 4 assists, seems a good option this week at home to Elfsborg. 

Jesper Karlsson 9.2m 
There's not much more we can say to praise the Elfsborg striker Jesper Karlsson. His current form is absolutely incredible and, away to Hammarby, he could build upon that form. 7 goals and 5 assists in his last six games, the only question surrounding Karlsson how much attention he’ll get from clubs abroad.
