FPL watchlist: Home comforts boost Kane

The Scout says return to home soil can make Spurs forward a big Fantasy favourite this season

As Fantasy Premier League managers can now select their 15-man squads, The Scout analyses standout budget and premium players in each position.

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.0m

It could be "home sweet home" for the striker if he capitalises on Spurs' first full season at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Over the past two seasons, Wembley Stadium has hosted all but five of Tottenham Hotspur's home matches.

Kane returned 21 goals from those fixtures, scoring every 127 minutes.

However he was far more prolific in his last full year at his side's former White Hart Lane stadium.

Kane scored 17 of his 29 goals in home matches during 2016/17, finding the net every 78.2 minutes.

Indeed, he produced a career-high FPL haul that season, totalling 224 points.

Kane's prospects are further boosted by a very favourable opening run of home matches.

For these reasons, he could prove a must-have for FPL managers in 2019/20.

*Fixture Difficulty Rankings

Spurs will entertain only one of last season's top 10 sides in their opening 10 home fixtures.

This hands Kane the platform to emerge as a key captain contender early on.

Influential figure

A drop in cost from last season's £12.5m has raised Kane's popularity.

He sits in 21.1 per cent of FPL squads, the joint-fourth most owned forward in the game.

If Kane can repeat his previous form back in Spurs' heartland, he will be major factor in FPL once again.
