Fantasy football scout tips gameweek 12: Jamie Vardy, Christian Pulisic, Anthony Martial and more

Mark Critchley

Jamie Vardy

Vardy served us well on his last appearance in the scout picks, bagging a hat-trick in that 9-0 defeat of Southampton. What price another at home to Arsenal this weekend?

Unai Emery's side are in dire straits and look ripe for picking on their visit to Leicester. Expect Vardy to extend his excellent record against the so-called 'top six'.

Christian Pulisic

After taking time to adapt to life in west London, Pulisic has fully settled in now and looks like another modestly-priced Chelsea asset worthy of our attention.

He followd his Turf Moor hat-trick with a goal away at Watford and now an enticing home encounter with Crystal Palace awaits for the American this weekend.

Anthony Martial

Manchester United have found goals hard to come by but look livelier since Anthony Martial's recovery from a long hamstring lay-off.

Martial made a scoring return at Norwich a fortnight ago and faces a Brighton and Hove Albion side that have struggled on the road since beating Watford on the opening day.

Diego Rico

Having started all of Bournemouth's last seven games, Rico is that most valuable of fantasy commodities: a cheap-as-chips, playing defender.

Rico is one of Bournemouth's chief set-piece takers too and this weekend's opponents Newcastle conceded from a corner at the London Stadium last time out.

Ashley Barnes

Barnes started the season brilliant, scoring four in his first three games, but is without a goal in the eight gameweeks since.

Though not exactly a form pick, we have high hopes of him ending his drought against West Ham, who looked dreadful defensively of late.

Honourable mentions: Nick Pope, Fikayo Tomori, James Maddison, Emi Buendia, Raul Jimenez
