Fantasy Football Scout: GW12 Scout Picks

Göteborg and Malmö play each other twice in the space of a few days, with their Swedish Cup final taking place midweek. We turn to the squads who have had a very rare rest, ahead of an intense August period that sees 7 Gameweeks in the space of a month. Hold on to your hats and prepare to get active, as this looks to be a truly challenging month that will reward active Fantasy management. Avoiding rest and rotation will be difficult, so it’s important to have a strong bench.

GOALKEEPER

David Ousted 5.6m
Hammarby and clean sheets have not been a match made in heaven in recent seasons, but this year David Ousted is trying his best to change that. With 4 clean sheets and 31 saves, 1 penalty save, and 11 defensive bonus points gathered so far he is third for points in the goalkeeper charts. Away to Helsingborg who have struggled in home matches, Ousted could build on that tally.

DEFENDERS 

Aslak Fonn Witry 7.3m 
With three double digit hauls already, it’s fair to say Djurgården right back Aslak Fonn Witry has no intentions of slowing down after last year’s heroics. Häcken are in fine form and it might take another Witry free kick to break the deadlock in Gameweek 12.

Jonathan Augustinsson 5.6m 
While it is not a position that we are likely to see him in on a regular basis, Jonathan Augustinsson played as a winger in Gameweek 12, away to AIK. On some set-pieces, he has been unfortunate lately not to get more offensive bonus point  as he has hovered just beneath the threshold. 

Johan Larsson 5.7m 
The Elfsborg right back Johan Larsson delivered yet again in Gameweek 12, despite his team conceding three times. 6 assists in 11 games speaks volumes and the potential for more attacking returns for Larsson looks good, at home to Sirius.


MIDFIELDERS 

Sebastian Larsson 9.0m 
Head coach Rikard Norling got the sack after losing the derby against Djurgården in Gameweek 12, and now it will likely be back to basics for a short while for AIK. Sebastian Larsson remains a force and while he has managed just 2 goals and 2 assists, he has worked hard and managed 5 offensive bonus and 11 defensive bonus points. The veteran will look to lead the way against Kalmar in Gameweek 12. 

Jonathan Levi 7.4m 
Having recently returned from an injury, Jonathan Levi has been used sparingly in the last couple of weeks. Still managing 1 goal and 2 assists from just 188 minutes played in the last 4 games, all Levi appears to need right now is a little time on the pitch to create points for himself and others. 

Stefano Vecchia 5.8m 
A constant rotation threat, Stefano Vecchia remains worth rolling the dice on. Shooting frequently, he should get enough minutes to do some damage away to Elfsborg. He has 2 goals and 2 assists from his last 3 games, in which he has featured for 208 minutes. 

Rasmus Alm 6.6m 
Not an underlying stats kind of a pick, Rasmus Alm seems to be a player that has benefited from Jesper Karlsson’s surge of form. Getting 2 goals and 1 assist in his last 2 games, chances are high that he can be involved again as a defensively suspect Sirius comes to visit. 

Sead Haksabanovic 10.9m 
Sead Haksabanovic took a penalty last Gameweek with Christoffer Nyman still on the pitch, while Lars Krogh Gerson was not – but penalty duty is really more of a bonus to the complete fantasy package that is Haksabanovic. 3 points clear of Rasmus Lauritsen in the overall points chart, Haksabanovic looks like he can provide against any team, and Mjällby should be no exception.


FORWARDS 

Jesper Karlsson 8.7m 
Arguably Allsvenskan’s most in-form striker, Jesper Karlsson has scored 3 goals and 3 assists in his last 2 games. He has also managed 2 offensive and 1 defensive bonus point during this time, something that’s worth taking note of as strikers tend to struggle managing regular bonus points in Fantasy Allsvenskan. 

Christoffer Nyman 10.2m 
Chasing a title for Norrköping and a spot as the potential golden boot winner, Christoffer Nyman has 7 goals and 2 assists in 11 appearances this season. Averaging 2.9 shots a game, the Gameweek 12 home game against Mjällby should provide an opportunity to add to his totals.
