Fantasy Football Scout picks out four players to get in your line-up for Gameweek 7.

In contrast to the previous weekend, Gameweek 6 brought many double-digit scores from popular picks. Six of the ten best-owned midfielders did so, topped by the 14 points of Son Heung-min (£9.2m) and Kaoru Mitoma (£6.6m).
Of course, we backed one of the other four – Bryan Mbeumo’s (£6.9m) one point – as well as a forward purchased by over 1.3 million managers during the week. Julian Alvarez (£7.0m) continued the ‘most-bought curse’, where the recipient of each Gameweek’s highest number of transfers immediately decides to blank.
Not only that, forward Odsonne Edouard (£5.6m) didn’t score past Fulham and tweaked his hamstring. At least Newcastle defender Sven Botman (£4.7m) was a success, bagging a clean sheet and a goal for 12 points.
Now looking ahead to Gameweek 7, with an 11:00 BST Saturday deadline, here are a few players we think could haul.
CARLTON MORRIS (£5.5M)
With the postponed Gameweek 2 match between Luton Town and Burnley being moved to next Tuesday night, FPL managers have their first Double Gameweek of the season.
However, neither of the two sides has yet won a match, combining for just seven goals during 10 outings. That could lead to managers ignoring this double and sticking with the nice-looking Arsenal, Newcastle and Manchester City fixtures but perhaps the one appealing option is Morris.
Luton’s talisman has scored twice, takes the penalties and comes at a very low price. The current landscape of FPL forwards is poor, so Morris facing Everton away and Burnley at home would be an interesting route to take – especially if you’re selling the suspended Nicolas Jackson (£6.9m).
JARROD BOWEN (£7.1M)
By contrast, the game has so many strong midfielders right now and Bowen could soon force his way into the template. Already on four goals, only Erling Haaland (£14.1m) and Son Heung-min (£9.2m) have netted more often and he’s ranked joint-sixth for big chances (five).
West Ham are seventh in the league and host last-placed Sheffield United on Saturday. The Blades have just been humiliated 8-0 at home to Newcastle and Bowen will be excited at the prospect of going against them.
KIERAN TRIPPIER (£6.6M)
A large part of the 8-0 came from the right foot of Trippier, who ended on three assists, a clean sheet and18 points.
Last season’s most frequent crosser and second-best creator of chances is now up to joint-fourth in the latter (17), just as Newcastle seem to be finding their defensive groove again.
Consecutive shut-outs versus Brentford, AC Milan and Sheffield United followed a disappointing run of two from their previous 22 league games.
Next up is Burnley for their first half of Double Gameweek 7, giving a platform for an elite FPL asset like Trippier to once again deliver at both ends of the pitch.
ABDOULAYE DOUCOURE (£5.5M)
The final recommendation feels like a maverick pick but is actually Everton’s leading asset for several statistics.
Doucoure’s goal at Brentford was his second of the season and – combined with the final weeks of 2022/23 – his fifth from ten matches.
No Toffees team-mate has more FPL points (23), penalty area touches (28), big chances (five) or chances created (10) so far, meaning he could be a brilliant differential with just 0.5% ownership.
