Ings has returned 13.3 points per million this season, more than any other forward or midfielder in the game.
He has played a part in 10 goals in total, scoring nine and assisting one.
That already equals his goal involvement from last season, when he produced seven goals and three assists.
Ings’ total of 84 points has been bettered by just four other forwards in the opening 16 Gameweeks.

Despite his kind price and run of goals, the 27-year-old remains largely overlooked by FPL managers.
He is only the eighth most-popular forward in the game, found in just 10.8 per cent of squads.
Saints’ schedule suggests Ings can continue to bring in returns.
That highlights his appeal as a fixture-proof pick up front, with his low cost of £6.3m making him one of the bargains of 2019/20 FPL.
