Fantasy Premier League can never stop getting unpredictable. No matter how good your squad selection is, or how consistent you are, there will be phases when your team just doesn’t perform to your expectations. Luck plays a major part, and plenty of times, it’s that one player who can make all the difference. FYS will help you explore some hidden gems to consider for your Gameweek 26 squad, who have a mighty good chance to make a solid impact this weekend.
Fixture: Stoke (H)
The ex-Liverpool starlet has steadily started finding his feet at Bournemouth and has recently been a valuable contribution to his club’s run of good form. Priced at a meagre £4.8, with just a 1.2% ownership, a good day for him on the pitch could turn your day into the same. 23 points in the last 4 games, with his highest set of points against Arsenal this season, has surely done a great deal in increasing the youngster’s confidence in recent times. With easy fixtures against leaky Stoke, Huddersfield and Newcastle coming up, we believe he can cause a notable impact in these games and help your team a great deal.

JAMES WARD PROWSE
Fixture: West Brom (A)
Let’s be honest. The Saints haven’t done much this season, being one of the least noticeable Premier League teams, neither scoring a lot, nor conceding all that much except against the big teams. All the predictable results and draws haven’t helped much too, and except Charlie Austin for a brief period, not many Southampton players have captured our attention, until James Ward Prowse recently. The central midfielder has had some amazing performances, without being much into the limelight. 25 points in just the last 3 games, which includes 15 against Watford after he scored both the goals that day, does show that he has the potential to be the star of team. His simple and frank playing style, which includes great composure on the ball and awareness, can be the deciding factor, and we hope he can be an FPL asset in coming times.
Fixture: Newcastle (H)
Given plenty of stick for making aimless runs and contributing to nothing worthwhile in the majority of the first half of the season, a lot has changed now. Along with Palace’s fortunes, Roy Hodgson has helped him flourish into a more prolific player in recent times. 1 goal and 4 assists in his last 6 games proves that point. A surprising 1% ownership shows that he is yet to attract attention. Although difficult fixtures come Palace’s way, they start of by facing Newcastle in the coming gameweek, and assuming he causes an impact against them, he can be valuable addition to keep in the coming fixtures too (posing a decent ICT index of 146). Get him in!
