2. Joel Veltman (Defender) – 4.2 million
Brighton defender Joel Veltman can turn out to be a very handy option this game week ahead of Brighton’s double fixture against Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Brighton has really been doing well this season and is showing no fear in facing big teams ahead of them in the league. Moreover, they face both the teams at home this gameweek, giving them the added home advantage.

4. Joshua King (Forward) – 5.8 million
Watford faces Newcastle United and Burnley FC in Gameweek 22. Several experts consider Watford’s DGW fixture as the best of the lot, especially with Watford being given the AFCON boost of not letting Dennis go. Joshua King is another attacking threat in the Watford team, a team that can well score in plenty against weaker teams. Watford did not win many games recently but there have been names on the score sheet for the Watford side in the majority of the cases, proving their attack is capable of breaking down tough defense lines.

He has managed to score 5 goals this season with an expected goals figure of 3.1xG, all of which come from a non-penalty action of the play.
Southampton faces Wolvers this gameweek and Broja can very well turn out to be an effective differential to boost your rank ahead of your rivals.
