Fernandes scored once and provided an assist in the home win over Watford on Sunday, claiming 14 points.
He has 22 points in his three Gameweek appearances since arriving in the January transfer window.
Fernandes looks among the standout options for managers attempting to navigate Gameweek 28, when four sides are without a fixture.
Fernandes’s dominance of set-pieces is another big factor in his favour.
He converted a penalty for United's opener against Nigel Pearson’s side and the 25-year-old also appears to be their first-choice taker for corners and free-kicks.
The underlying numbers highlight Fernandes’s immediate influence on the United attack.
His 10 shots and seven chances created over the last three Gameweeks are both team-leading totals.
This suggests he can offer a strong all-round option for Gameweek 28 and, indeed, the rest of the 2019/20 season.
Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily): Still at 35 per cent ownership, Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) can hardly be called a differential but FPL managers have been selling him in their droves given the distinct lack of goals since Gameweek 18. But we saw the green shoots of recovery against Man City at the weekend. Norwich City should come out and attack Leicester City at Carrow Road, leaving space for Vardy to do what he does best.
Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily): I've held Vardy all this time for his Gameweek 28 fixture. The reduced Gameweek means the big-hitters left with fixtures have to perform. Vardy has consistently been one of the most transferred-out players but could be an excellent asset this weekend when I expect his scoring boots to be back on.
Paul Gee (@FPLPaulGee): I bought Matt Doherty (£6.1m) last week. Wolverhampton Wanderers have tightened up at the back and Doherty is worth the extra outlay for his attacking threat. Leicester have a great fixture this week against a Norwich side fighting relegation. I expect Vardy to start scoring again.
