Fantasy Football Scout: GW6 Scout Picks

The Gameweeks are coming quickly and while most teams will rest for a week after Gameweek 6, midweek games await for IF Elfsborg, IFK Göteborg, Mjällby AIF, and Malmö FF, who all play the semi-finals in the Swedish cup. Gameweek 6 features some interesting ‘home bankers’ in Djurgården-Helsingborg and AIK-Falkenberg, while BK Häcken – Hammarby and Elfsborg – Malmö look likely to be intensely fought games with uncertain outcome.

Goalkeeper

Per Kristian Bråtveit (5.0m)
Last season Tommi Vaiho swooped in to claim Per Kristan Bråtveit’s spot between the sticks for Djurgården; this year the roles are  reversed. Bråtveit has put in two good performances since his Gameweek 4 start, letting in just 1 goal and gathering 2 defensive bonus points. Djurgården now face a Helsingborg side who have yet to score a goal this season.

Defenders

Jonathan Augustinsson (5.6m) 
Jonathan Augustinsson could start this week either at left back or centre back, depending on the fitness of Jacob Une Larsson who was injured in Gameweek 5. Assuming he isn’t rested ahead of tougher games, he carries an attacking threat both from open play and on set pieces, which he demonstrated with a lovely goal in Gameweek 4. 

Aslak Fonn Witry (7.0m) 
The biggest creative spark in Djurgården’s backline comes from Aslak Fonn Witry. On 2 assists, 3 offensive and 4 defensive bonus points so far, Witry is integral to Djurgården’s attack and their defence. With Edward Chilufya a big doubt for this game, the coaches will likely turn to target man Emir Kujovic up top, even though they have been reluctant to do so this season. This should offer Witry even more chances to rack up assists and offensive bonus points.

Axel Björnström (4.8m)
Axel Björnström gets renewed faith in the Scout picks after another haul in Gameweek 5, netting 12 points through 1 goal, 1 assist, and 1 offensive bonus. Sirius are up against Örebro who have scored 1 goal in their last 3 games and Björnström shows no sign of slowing down his points production.

Robin Tihi (4.6m)
While AIK have had mixed results so far this season, there has been definite fantasy value in some of their players. Robin Tihi is one of them with his 1 goal, 2 clean sheets and 4 defensive bonus points gathered. As AIK play in the first match of the Gameweek, a bonus tip is to keep a close eye on AIK Twitter who have a habit of posting the line-up a few minutes before the Fantasy Allsvenskan deadline, allowing us to make more informed decisions.

Midfielders

Sead Haksabanovic (10.4m)
His first game of the season without registering a goal or assist, Sead Haksabanovic refused to draw a complete blank in Gameweek 5 gathering 2 offensive and 1 defensive bonus point. That makes it an impressive tally of 9 offensive and 2 defensive bonus points to go along with his 2 goals and 4 assists. Another home game for Norrköping this weekend as they welcome Göteborg and odds are Haksabanovic will be in the points yet again. 

Anders Christiansen (10.0m)
Back from his suspension in Gameweek 4, Anders Christiansen wasted no time in re-establishing himself as a top fantasy option with his goal against Djurgården. Taking his Swedish cup heroics into account he’s now scored 6 goals in 5 games since the football kicked off again, which could have been more if he hadn’t seen red after 36 minutes in Gameweek 3. Away to a defensively solid Elfsborg is not the best of fixtures, but Malmö needs to continue racking up wins if they are to threaten Norrköping at the top, and Christiansen is likely to be involved. 

Bilal Hussein (5.2m)
With five starts in five games and high praise from the coach, Bilal Hussein is another cheap AIK option who could do well this week. Starting from the right side of midfield, Hussein likes to drift inwards and have a shot from distance. This Gameweek’s opponent Falkenberg are not exactly famous for their defensive solidity and Hussein will fancy his chances to build upon his good start.

Sebastian Larsson (9.0m)
Coming in at a significantly higher price than other AIK assets, Sebastian Larsson is one of the more experienced veterans trying to guide them through this season. Taking penalties and most set-pieces, Larsson is on 2 goals and 1 assist and could easily rack up more points when AIK entertains Falkenberg. 

Forwards

Jesper Karlsson (8.5m)
Although Jesper Karlsson has only scored 1 goal so far, it hasn’t been down to a lack of trying. Averaging an impressive 4 shots a game, Karlsson is going to have to up his conversion rate in Gameweek 6 as Malmö visit, in a game that promises to be hard-fought. The Scout is backing goals from both sides and Karlsson to add some end product to his efforts. 

Jordan Attah Kadiri (6.9m)
Jordan Attah Kadiri remains an interesting option in the fantasy game. 1 goal and 1 assist this season is hardly stellar Fantasy form, but his pre-season form could be coming back to now as Östersund hosts Mjällby in Gameweek 6. Despite keeping a clean sheet away to Helsingborg , they still conceded 4 goals in the other 2 away games against Malmö and Göteborg.
