Owners of Erling Haaland ($12.2 million) in the Fantasy Premier League should think about captaining a Double Gameweek 27 asset instead of the Norwegian forward. The Scout on how Brighton and Brentford’s main offensive players can outscore Man City’s striker.
The attacker for Manchester City is in a whopping 85% of teams and will wear the captain’s armband for his trip to Crystal Palace.
Haaland has only produced one double-figure return in his previous six, so he hasn’t exactly been at his best lately.
Importantly, he has been far more dependable this season at the Etihad Stadium.
He averages 9.5 points per game (ppg) at home versus 6.1 ppg away from home.
Ivan Toney of Brentford ($7.8 million) averages a nearly equal 6.0 ppm while playing away from home.
On his Double Gameweek 27 trip, the forward travels to Everton and Southampton, two of the bottom three teams.
GW27 Captains Pick Double Gameweek Stars Over Haaland
The most intriguing selection for Brighton & Hove Albion’s games against Leeds United and Crystal Palace is Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m).
Only three of the midfielder’s 11 starts for Japan have ended in a blank.
Throughout that stretch, Mitoma’s average of 6.7 points per start placed seventh among regular Fantasy starters.
Since making his full debut for the team in Gameweek 14, his midfield teammates Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m) and Solly March (£5.1m) have each delivered four double-digit scores in 2022–23.
Nevertheless, Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur ($11.7 million), Marcus Rashford of Manchester United ($7.3 million), and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool ($12.8 million) all have a single game and the form to score big.
Salah travels to AFC Bournemouth after scoring a season-high 21 points against Manchester United the previous weekend.
Throughout the previous four Gameweeks, he produced eight shots on goal, more than any other Fantasy player.
Rashford, who will play against Southampton, has scored 11.2 points on average in each home game since the season resumed.
His league-leading tally of six double-figure returns in home games this season.
In a previous campaign match against Nottingham Forest, Kane scored twice and collected 10 points.
His 21 shots at home are tied for the most among all players in 2022–23 Fantasy with Haaland.
