The Scout continues a series on the players offering the biggest potential for Fantasy Premier League points from set-pieces.
A big share of Manchester United's direct free-kicks has raised Rashford's goal threat.
The frontman has taken seven such shots, more than double the total of any of his fellow forwards in FPL.
Indeed, apart from the three of Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m), no FPL forward has managed more than one.
They are attacking the ball rather than taking the free-kicks, so Rashford stands out.
Top FPL forwards for dead-ball threat
|Player||Attempts from set-pieces||Direct free-kicks||Set-piece goals||Penalty goals|
Although Rashford has yet to score a direct free-kick in the Premier League this season, he found the net this way in the Red Devils' recent EFL Cup win over Chelsea.
The 22-year-old also converted a penalty in that 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge in late October.
A share of spot-kicks has further enhanced his prospects.
Rashford has taken four penalties in the opening 12 Gameweeks, twice the total of any other player in FPL.
He has scored two of his six Premier League goals for the season from the spot, netting against Chelsea again and Leicester City.
It remains to be seen, however, whether Rashford will remain first-choice penalty-taker when Paul Pogba (£8.4m) returns from injury.
The Frenchman took 10 of Man Utd’s 12 penalties last term, converting seven of his efforts.

Rashford's recent run of goals has lifted him to fifth place among the highest-scoring forwards in FPL.
He sits on 63 points, having scored in three of the last four Gameweeks.
And a kind upcoming run of opponents looks promising for more returns.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of Man Utd's next seven matches score just two.
Rashford can flourish during that schedule and reward his growing 13.9 per cent ownership with more goals.
