Silva is among the top 10 highest-scoring players in the game, his 51 points just two behind team-mate Raheem Sterling (£12.1m).
The Spaniard’s display reflected a day where differentials were the big performers for FPL managers.
Indeed, 13 of the 14 players who scored nine points sit in fewer than 5.0 per cent of squads.
Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) was the top-scoring player over Saturday’s eight matches, with 14 points.
Alonso has delivered an attacking return or a clean sheet in four of his last five appearances.
However, the imminent return of Emerson (£5.5m) will soon provide the Spaniard with competition for a starting role.
Two other defenders also posted their season-high hauls.
The Dutchman was substituted with a knock before Spurs' late equaliser.
The left-back's team-mate Jack Grealish (£5.9m) was the top-scoring midfielder on Saturday.
He produced a goal and an assist to collect 13 points.
Grealish has stepped up his output recently, recording 28 of his 42 points for the season in the last four Gameweeks.
Vardy has five goals and an assist in his last four at King Power Stadium.
Leicester's upcoming schedule further strengthens Vardy’s appeal, with seven of their next eight matches rated just two according to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).
The Saints striker has found the net in three successive Gameweeks, totalling 25 points in that period.
