The Scout assesses the top-scoring players in the opening 16 Gameweeks of Fantasy Premier League.
His multiple routes to returns have helped Newcastle United's No 1 to the top of the goalkeeper standings. Pope has combined seven clean sheets with 10 save points and six bonus points in his 15 appearances.
The right-back has been among the most consistent players this term, blanking in only three of his 15 outings. Trippier produced one goal, four assists, nine clean sheets and 17 bonus and holds a 22-point lead as the top-scoring defender in Fantasy.
Arsenal's Frenchman has proven a huge source of value after starting 2022/23 at a cost of just £4.5m. Saliba has thrived on the road in particular; indeed he is the top-scoring player away from home, amassing 58 points on his travels.
The Brazilian sits just two points behind Saliba thanks to two goals, seven clean sheets and nine bonus. Gabriel scored five goals last term and has been the Gunners' main threat at the back, producing nine shots in the box compared with the three of Saliba.
Eight goals and two assists have taken the Paraguayan to the top of the midfield standings, earning him a £0.8m rise in price since the season started. Almiron is second only to team-mate Trippier for value in Fantasy, returning 16.0 points per million spent.
The Manchester City playmaker's 10 assists have surpassed his total of eight from 2021/22 Fantasy. De Bruyne's 45 key passes and 15 big chances created are both more than any other player in Fantasy in the first 16 Gameweeks.
Liverpool's Egyptian is the second most-sold player this season, moved on by over 5.1 million managers after scoring only six goals. Yet Salah has been the standout threat among all midfielders, his 50 shots, 39 shots in the box and 14 big chances all ranking top in his position.
A role up front for Brighton & Hove Albion under new head coach Roberto De Zerbi has lifted the Belgian's potential. Trossard's 20 shots in the box and seven big chances both rank second among midfielders since the Italian's arrival.
Man City's Norwegian has taken Fantasy by storm in his debut campaign, scoring 18 goals and supplying three assists in only 13 appearances. Owned by a massive 82 per cent, Haaland has averaged 9.8 points per start to establish himself as the go-to captain for millions of managers each Gameweek.
Tottenham Hotspur's talisman has proven the best premium-priced partner for Haaland in managers' squads, thanks to his all-round style of play. Kane's 12 goals and three assists have helped him collect 21 bonus points, more than any other player.
