Watford attacker Emmanuel Dennis has been one of the most in-form players in the Premier League season. He has become the go-to man for Watford in terms of his goals and assists in that’s his debut season at the club. Watford secured promotion to the Premier League this season following their achievement of finishingin second place at the end of the English Championship season last term. Watford are one of the three newly promoted teams in the Premier League this season alongside Norwich City and Brentford.
Nigerian attacker Dennis secured a Premier League move this summer after Watford paid around £3.5m to secure his transfer from Belgian champions Club Brugge.
Even the most optimistic of Watford fans won’t have expected Dennis to lead fantasy football points amongst the Premier League attackers. The Nigerian player was on target for Watford during the Premier League clash at London team Brentford on Friday night thereby taking him to the top of the fantasy football points as far as the attack is concerned.
Dennis gave Watford the lead in the first half of the Brentford game before two late goals from skipper Pontus Jansson and Bryan Mbeumo (penalty) turned the game on its head as the Bees moved into the top half of the table with a 2-1 win at the expense of the Hornets.
With his goal against Brentford, Watford star Dennis took his tally to seven goals and five assists in 15 Premier League games this season. His header off a corner kick from the Bees game took his fantasy football points to 84 points, the most amongst the attackers in the Premier League. As things stand, Dennis has seven more fantasy football points than Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in second place, while West Ham United attacker Michail Antonio completes the top three. Vardy has 77 fantasy football points, while Antonio has 71 fantasy football points.
