Fantasy Football Scout: GW9 Scout Picks

Gameweek 8 produced some high scores for Fantasy managers, particularly those choosing to deploy the powerful ‘Park The Bus’ chip. While a Simon Thern injury could complicate matters for some, new players are starting to emerge that could shake up the template.

GOALKEEPER

Johan Dahlin 6.5m 
While Malmö have a knack for conceding 1 goal a game, Johan Dahlin still has 9 defensive bonus points to go with the 2 clean sheets. At home to a struggling Kalmar side, Dahlin’s clean sheet prospects look good.

DEFENDERS

Rasmus Lauritsen 6.9m 
Rasmus Lauritsen continues to top the defender charts and is 10 points clear of Axel Björnström in second place. The pair face each other in Gameweek 9 and the Scout is backing Lauritsen to extend his lead at the top.

Anel Ahmedhodzic 5.7m 
The young centre back Anel Ahmedhodzic has established himself as a clear first choice in the heart of Malmö’s defence. While clean sheets have been few and far between, he has been getting defensive bonus points to make up for it, with 11 so far.

Dennis Widgren 5.5m
Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, Hammarby have kept 3 clean sheets, with all 3 coming at home. Dennis Widgren remains a hard worker and an attacking outlet with his consistent crossing, which has netted him 3 offensive and 9 defensive bonus points. At home to Göteborg, he is likely to continue taking actions favoured by the bonus point system and, sooner or later, those crosses will result in assists. 

Robin Tranberg 4.5m 
The Robin Tranberg pick from Gameweek 8 gets the nod again. He was substituted just seconds after the 60-minute mark, ensuring he got 6 points from the game instead of just 1. He had a shot on target in that game and now has 4 clean sheets this season. Against AIK in Gameweek 9, we could see him deliver on his strong underlying numbers. 

MIDFIELDERS

Sead Hakšabanović 10.7m
Sead Hakšabanović is about as close to ‘essential’ as Fantasy players go, delivering 69 points in just 8 games. For reference, last year’s top scorer Muamer Tankovic ended up on 181 points after 30 games. In Gameweek 8 Hakšabanović had 7 shots with 3 on target, 3 off target, and 1 blocked. It’s highly likely that Hakšabanović delivers yet again, this time away to Sirius. 

Anders Christiansen 10.1m
Anders Christiansen makes Malmö tick and he is proving himself to be a great fantasy asset this season as well, with 4 goals, 1 assist, 6 offensive, and 1 defensive bonus point from just 6 games played. At home to Kalmar, Christiansen looks a solid shout for producing points again. 

Alexander Kačaniklić 9.9m
With an assist and good intentions in Gameweek 8, Alexander Kačaniklić could be starting to find some form. Against Kalmar he created one big chance and made 3 key passes, leading to 2 offensive bonus points. He also fired off 4 shots, though 2 of those were blocked and the other 2 off target. Many have given up on the Hammarby attack but the Scout has not. At home to Göteborg it’s time for them to repay the faith.

Muamer Tankovic 11.0m 
Another premium Hammarby midfielder who could be coming back to life is Muamer Tankovic. Taking 5 shots in Gameweek 8 he just needs to up his accuracy - 1 was on target, 3 off target and 1 shot was blocked. Potentially close to signing a contract extension that keeps him at Hammarby for the rest of the season, it is not too late for Tankovic to become an interesting option. 

FORWARDS

Jordan Attah Kadiri 6.9m 
As long as Jordan Attah Kadiri is at Östersund he is an interesting Fantasy prospect. Promising ahead of the season to score 17 goals, he is still 15 goals shy of that estimate, but he will want to demonstrate his broader appeal and to do that, he will likely be looking to get on the scoresheet.

Mamudu Moro 5.5m 
Mamudu Moro was a very popular option ahead of the season but injuries and some rotation has seen the initial investors back off a bit. Still managing 3 goals and 2 offensive bonus points in limited minutes, he is averaging 1.8 shots a game and a goal every 108 minutes on the pitch.
