Fantasy Football Scout: GW18 Scout Picks

The final Gameweek before the international break, now is the time to scout some of the new signings and maybe even get in some of them early. With AIK’s new players looking to make an instant impact on the defence, Magnus Eriksson is tasked with adding some efficiency to Djurgården’s attack.

Goalkeeper

Aly Keita 5.6m
Comfortably the top scoring goalkeeper in the game by a margin of 21 points, Aly Keita has 3 straight clean sheets to his name. Getting extra points for saves and defensive bonus in each of his 5 last games, there is a good chance of more points from Keita this Gameweek.

Defenders

Thomas Isherwood 5.0m
Another player who has contributed to Östersund’s resoluteness, Thomas Isherwood has managed to gather 18 defensive bonus points on the season. He is also demonstrating good form recently, getting the maximum 2 defensive bonus points in each of his 4 last games. 

Aslak Fonn Witry 7.5m
One of the most creative defenders in the league, Aslak Fonn Witry is perhaps somewhat of a victim of Djurgårdens attacking inefficiency so far. Sitting at 2 goals and 5 assists from 17 games, he could profit from the recent signing of Magnus Eriksson, who we will get to in a bit. Away to Helsingborg who continue to struggle, Witry could provide us with more attacking returns and also has the potential for another clean sheet.

Sotirios Papagiannopoulos 6.0m
Sotirios Papagiannopoulos came straight into the side and delivered a clean sheet and two defensive bonus points against Helsingborg. They now face Häcken at home who, despite winning away to Norrköping, still are 13th placed in the away-table. With Mikael Lustig also boosting the defence if he is declared ready to start, things could start turning around for AIK.

Midfielders

Magnus Eriksson 9.5m
Having spent a few seasons abroad with San Jose Earthquakes, Magnus Eriksson returns to Djurgården to help bolster their attack, which has looked a bit lacklustre this season. In 2017 he scored 14 goals and 7 assists in 29 games for Djurgården. Going forward he could start finding his way into more and more squads, especially if he hits the ground running away to Helsingborg in Gameweek 18.

Yukiya Sugita 7.2m
Seemingly out of nowhere, Sirius managed to land a permanent deal for Yukiya Sugita before the transfer deadline. This is great news for backers of the Sirius attack and away to Varberg, he will get plenty of chances to add to the 6 goals and 5 assists he has managed in 17 appearances so far.

Tobias Sana 7.8m
With 10 offensive and 8 defensive bonus points so far, Tobias Sana is also starting to add some end product to his game. 3 goals and one assist in his 4 last games, penalty taking duties has recently been added to his appeal as well. Away to Mjällby who despite looking sharp in attack still only have two clean sheets all season, Sana could indeed produce again.

Moses Ogbu 6.0m
Categorised as a midfielder in the game but playing as a striker, Moses Ogbu continues to deliver on a regular basis. While the upcoming blank in Gameweek 19 probably will prohibit massive investment in the short term, 7 goals and one assist in his last 7 games illustrates a player in fine form who could play a big part in the second half of this season.

Stefano Vecchia 6.6m
Almost at the point where we are searching for alternatives just to provide a differential route, Stefano Vecchia in current form is too good to pass up. 8 goals and 5 assists in his 8 last games, he also has 11 shots in his last two games. Away to Varberg who have kept just 3 clean sheets all season, Vecchia is primed for more points.

Forwards

Astrit Selmani 6.5m
Astrit Selmani continues to tick along, managing 7 goals and 3 assists in 12 appearances so far. With Sirius coming to visit, goals for both teams look likely. Selmani tends to be involved when Varberg scores, playing a part in 55% of their goals scored while on the pitch.

Jesper Karlsson 9.3m
A rare blank in Gameweek 17 aside, Jesper Karlsson is in scintillating form having scored 8 goals and 5 assists in the 7 games prior. Away to Malmö who might be tired from playing in European qualifiers midweek, Elfsborg also get Per Frick back from suspension to help out in attack.
