DEFENDERS

NECO WILLIAMS – Nottingham Forest (52pts)

A player that has proven to be fruitful in every department apart from being involved with the goals, Neco Williams looks a good pick up this season.

The Forest full-back has picked up a tidy total of 52 points this season, mostly thanks to his 30 tackles and five shots on targets.

The Wales international has been consistent in the scoring this season and with Forest showing signs of improvement, he could well pick up some more points down the line.

DAN BURN – Newcastle (37pts)

A regular starter in the Newcastle backline, Dan Burn could be worth adding to your squad for the remainder of the year.

The Newcastle full-back has been strong in the clean sheet and tackles department, and his 6ft7in stature makes him an ideal aerial threat for set pieces.

The Magpies have been solid so far this season and he could well pick up more clean sheet bonuses throughout the season.

MIDFIELDERS

RODRIGO BENTANCUR – Spurs (86pts)

Bentancur has flown majorly under the radar this season, with the Uruguayan sitting in the top-five scoring midfielder cards this season.

The Spurs midfielder has picked up 86 points so far this season, outscoring the likes of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka.

Bentancur is a solid option for your side if you are struggling to fill your midfielder spots.

JOAO PALHINHA – Fulham (63pts)

A hidden gem in the game this season, Joao Palhinha is an easy addition to your line-up.

The Portuguese midfielder has been dominant in the tackles department, with 39 of his 63 points coming in that category alone.

He does chip in with the odd goal and assist as well, so Palhinha looks a comfortable plug-and-play option going forward.

FORWARDS

ANTHONY GORDON – Everton (68pts)

While he hasn’t been as consistent as of late, Anthony Gordon’s contributions in UF are not just from goals.

The Everton youngster has proven to be a handful at times, with 47 points of his total coming from tackles and SOTs alone.

While goalscoring is important for a striker, he does pick up points elsewhere and this could push him into Team of the Week terriority if he does find the net.

DOMINIC SOLANKE – Bournemouth (60pts)

Another player that is showing signs of improvement, Solanke could be worth putting your trust in during the second half of the season.

The former Liverpool and Chelsea striker has registered six goal contributions this season, drumming up a 60-point score to date.

Solanke will likely find the net a few more times this season and he could be one to watch out.
