The Scout is highlighting the form players in Fantasy Premier League and making key tactical observations during pre-season.
Fantasy managers will have to revise their plans now that Nathan Ferguson (£4.0m) is a major doubt for the start of the 2020/21 campaign.
The versatile Crystal Palace full-back is the fifth most-popular defender in the game, sitting in 17.3 per cent of squads.
But he missed Tuesday's 2-1 win over Oxford United, with manager Roy Hodgson explaining the defender has yet to return to full training due to a knee problem.
Ferguson's team-mate Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) could now provide an alternative in the cut-price bracket.
He came on as a substitute and played 70 minutes at left-back in the absence of the injured Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m).
Elsewhere for the Eagles, Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m), who is listed as a midfielder in FPL, played up front against Oxford.
Meanwhile, a number of West Ham United players impressed in two separate friendlies on Tuesday.
Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) was also on the scoresheet. The Czech Republic international carried on from his late-season displays in 2019/20, when he scored three goals in the final nine Gameweeks.
In the 5-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers, Jarrod Bowen (£6.5m) was the star performer, scoring twice and supplying an assist.
