The Scout is reviewing every Fantasy Premier League fixture until the end of the season, whether it's noting player rotation and injuries, making tactical observations or highlighting in-form differentials.
The Clarets’ No 1 now has 147 points, having racked up nine in the Gameweek 32+ win. He is 11 points clear of his nearest rival Kasper Schmeichel (£5.4m) between the posts.
And Pope's remaining schedule looks very promising for his 19.5 per cent ownership.
This suggests that doubling up on Burnley's defence could prove a worthwhile tactic over the run-in.
Although Erik Pieters (£4.2m) featured as a midfielder against Palace, his role in the starting XI is far from secure.
It is Charlie Taylor (£4.3m) who is the value pick among Burnley's defenders. The left-back has started every match from Gameweek 18 onwards.
Palace’s schedule is far less encouraging.
They will face five of the current top seven teams in the Premier League in the remaining six Gameweeks.
Top scorer: Ben Mee 15pts (TSB 1.1%, £5.0m)
Bonus points: Ben Mee 3pts, Nick Pope 2pts, Charlie Taylor 1pt.
Crystal Palace: LEI (A) CHE (H) AVL (A)
Burnley: SHU (H) WHU (A) LIV (A)
