As Fantasy Premier League managers can now select their 15-man squads, The Scout analyses standout budget and premium players in each position.
His starring role for England in UEFA Euro 2020 has made the Manchester United left-back a top target in Fantasy.
Shaw is the most-owned defender in the game, found in 38.7 per cent of squads.
Man Utd's early schedule can reward that early faith of managers.
Only one of their first six matches scores more than three in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR).
Man Utd's defensive record last season indicates they can pick up clean sheets from the start of 2021/22.
United's totals of 13 shutouts and 44 goals conceded ranked fourth and fifth respectively last season.
Shaw’s creativity further adds to his appeal.
His 72 key passes ranked second among defenders in 2020/21, bettered only by the 77 of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m).
Indeed, that total ranked seventh among all players in the game last term.
Shaw’s set-piece duties help lift his attacking appeal.
He took 97 of Man Utd’s 197 corners, with Bruno Fernandes (£12.0m) taking 59.
The defender created 29 chances from such situations, the fifth-best total in 2020/21.
His statistics also suggest he was unfortunate to score only once.
Shaw recorded 66 touches in the opposition box, a total surpassed by only five other defenders.
Added to his potential for clean sheets and assists, Shaw can build on his showings for England and establish himself as a key player in Fantasy this season.
