The Scout looks at the Fantasy Premier League potential of summer signings ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The Spaniard arrives at Leeds United on the back of four goals and seven assists in 27 LaLiga appearances for Valencia last season.
Rodrigo also impressed in the UEFA Champions League, scoring twice and providing two assists in six outings.
The 29-year-old is versatile enough to play out wide or as a No 10, although he is expected to feature as a centre-forward for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Rodrigo’s all-round style of play means he is likely to replace Patrick Bamford (£5.5m) up front in Leeds’ 4-1-4-1 formation.
|Mins per goal/assist||171.7||192.2|
He produced 27 key passes to the 24 of Bamford, despite playing more than 1,500 minutes less.
Furthermore, he created almost double the number of big chances than his strike rival, by 11 to six.
The Spaniard created a big chance every 171.7 minutes, compared with the 223.8 minutes and 192.5 minutes of Harrison and Hernandez respectively.
While Rodrigo may not be a prolific goalscoring forward, his ability to produce assists can help boost his points potential over the 2020/21 campaign.
