The Scout takes a look at the players ranked highly over the last four Gameweeks in the ICT Index.
The Index helps Fantasy Premier League managers look beyond points to determine players' values as FPL assets through their Influence, Creativity and Threat.
The Liverpool winger is enjoying his most consistent run of form.
His four goals over that period places him joint-top with Paul Pogba (£8.8m) among FPL midfielders.
The underlying statistics highlight Mane’s attacking threat for the Merseysiders.

His 12 shots inside the penalty area over GW23 to 26 are more than any other midfielder.
Compared with his displays earlier on in the season, Mane’s prospects in Fantasy are on the rise.
He has averaged 3.0 shots inside the penalty box over the last four Gameweeks, up from 1.8 over GW1 to 22.
As a result, his shots on target have almost doubled, climbing from 1.1 to 2.0.
His recent run of goals has persuaded over 51,000 FPL managers to sign Mane for his GW27 trip to Manchester United.
And Liverpool’s subsequent schedule suggests that Mane could flourish as a double-up option alongside the 50.4 per cent owned Salah.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only two of their final 11 opponents over GW28 to 38 score more than three.

|31||FUL (A)||2||37||NEW (A)||3|
|32||TOT (H)||4||38||WOL (H)||3|
That gives Mane the platform to extend his prolific run and help steer Liverpool’s bid for the title.
