Spotlight: Ken Owens

Ken Owens started four of Wales' five games in last year's Six Nations championship, and The Scout believes that he could be a key ingredient to your fantasy squad for this year's iteration.

After a solid 2018 Six Nations championship in which he started four of Wales' five games, Ken Owens went on to finish the year as one of the higher scorers at hooker, despite not appearing for his country over the summer.

For more information on what the numbers on our player cards mean, take a look at this.

Perhaps his best performance of last year came against England, but once the Autumn internationals swung round, he registered more strong fantasy scores, with the stand-out against Scotland.

With a points per game of 16.26, he certainly rises above his compatriates Elliott Dee (11.32) and Ryan Elias (9.22) for the number two berth, but he is still a little short of the top pack for the compatition. Don't let that deter you though, Owens offers a great option for your fantasy squad (even iif he isn't registered as a number eight!).

Thirty one attacking fantasy points through the Autumn Internationals combined with twenty defensive is a strong showing, and if he can carry that form into this year's championship, you can expect a good return.
