4) Harvey Barnes (6.5m, 4.0% owned, vs Southampton)
Without European competition matches, Leicester have been able to play their strongest team and they’ve finally looked as good as we expect of them.
The return of Jamie Vardy is instrumental not just to the way Leicester play but his ability to stretch a defense allows plenty of room for the likes of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison to run into space and cause damage.
Barnes has had 6 shots inside the box, including 3 big chances; created 5 chances including 2 big chances across his last 4 games. He comes up against a Southampton team that, similar to Leicester, will likely play an expansive style of football and there’s an expectation that this will be a high-scoring encounter.
Barnes’ direct style lends to a greater goal threat than teammate James Maddison and that combined with his much lower ownership has led to him being a strong differential for GW38; one whose ownership in mini-leagues will likely be very low.
