Yet he is owned by just over 1.0 per cent of squads for a home encounter with Norwich City.
Ward-Prowse is among The Scout's four Differentials ahead of Tuesday's 18:30 GMT deadline.
His total of six shots on target over the last four Gameweeks is second only to the seven of Sadio Mane (£12.2m) among FPL midfielders.
Ward-Prowse's creativity can also be a big influence at home against Norwich on Wednesday evening.
The 25-year-old has supplied 20 key passes, more than any team-mate.
Norwich visit St Mary's Stadium having struggled defensively, conceding at least twice in four of the last five Gameweeks.
Lucas excelled in the corresponding fixture last season, scoring twice in Tottenham Hotspur's 3-0 win at Old Trafford.
He has started well under Spurs' new head coach, producing a goal and an assist over his two starts in all competitions.
He could again be decisive against a Red Devils defence that is without a clean sheet in the last nine Gameweeks.
The winger has been a key figure in Wolverhampton Wanderers' recent matches.
Traore supplied assists against Aston Villa and AFC Bournemouth in Gameweek 12 and 13 respectively, then scored in last week's UEFA Europa League clash with Braga.
A home encounter with West Ham United hands him the chance to continue that run of returns.
The Hammers have conceded nine goals and 33 shots on target over the last four Gameweeks. Both those totals are more than any other side.
The Sheffield United frontman has stepped up his goal threat ahead of a visit from Newcastle United.
McGoldrick's seven shots on target over the last four Gameweeks rank third among all players in FPL.
And at home, his eight shots on target is a team-leading total for the Blades, compared with the two of his fellow forward Lys Mousset (£5.1m).
That suggests McGoldrick will pose big problems for the Magpies, who have conceded 16 away goals, more than any other side.
