The Scout assesses the top-scoring players in the opening 16 Gameweeks of Fantasy Premier League.

Nick Pope (NEW) £5.3m, 70pts

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.

Kieran Trippier (NEW) £5.9m, 96pts

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.

William Saliba (ARS) £5.3m, 74pts

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. 

Gabriel (ARS) £5.2m, 72pts

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.

Miguel Almiron (NEW) £5.8m, 93pts

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.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £12.6m, 90pts

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. 

Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.8m, 82pts

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.

Leandro Trossard (BHA) £7.1m, 80pts

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.

Erling Haaland (MCI) £12.2m, 123pts

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. 

Harry Kane (TOT) £11.6m, 102pts

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.

Ivan Toney (BRE) £7.4m, 83pts

Managers have flocked to the Brentford forward after his two goals against Man City last weekend. Toney is the top target in the unlimited free transfers period, earning 351,000+ new owners.
