The Scout looks at players expected to progress and make a big impact in 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League.
The Southampton midfielder is set to build on a breakout FPL season.
Ward-Prowse struggled for minutes under former manager Mark Hughes and started only three of the opening 15 Gameweeks in 2018/19.
But the mid-season arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl has transformed his FPL potential.
Handed his first start for the Austrian in Gameweek 20, Ward-Prowse became a key figure as Saints avoided relegation.
He was their top scorer under Hasenhuttl, firing seven goals to average 4.3 points per match (ppm).

The underlying statistics showcase Ward-Prowse's potential for 2019/20.
From Gameweek 20 onwards, he was joint-top with Nathan Redmond (£6.5m) for shots on target at Southampton, with 13 apiece.
He was also Saints' top creator, supplying 32 chances for team-mates.
Crucially, Ward-Prowse's potential for assists was boosted by a big share of set-pieces. He took 75 of their 98 corners during this period.
Having totalled 94 points last season, Ward-Prowse is priced at £6.0m this term and has the all-round potential to become a key figure in the cut-price bracket in 2019/20.
