The Scout is selecting four overlooked players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 18 in Fantasy Premier League.
Carroll has made both his starts this season in the last three Gameweeks.
The 30-year-old supplied an assist in both those victories, with his ability in the air a major weapon for Steve Bruce's side.
Over the last three Gameweeks, Carroll's 25 successful aerial duels have been more than any team-mate.
Indeed, that total ranked second only to the 29 of Shane Long (£4.6m) among FPL forwards.
That could prove a key factor against Palace, who have struggled to defend headed attempts.
The Eagles have conceded 49 headed shots, the fourth-worst record in the league.
Carroll can help exploit that weakness and make the difference for the Magpies on Saturday afternoon.
