The Scout Notes
Two successive 3-1 victories in less than a week have put FPL managers on alert to Leicester's improving assets.
Saturday’s win provided further evidence of a revival, with Mahrez, Fuchs and Jamie Vardy (£9.6m), who built on his 13-point haul against Liverpool with an assist, all back on the radar.
While the champions sit out Gameweek 28, home encounters with Stoke City and Sunderland and a trip to West Ham United, suggest that the FPL returns could continue to flow.
The price-tags of Mahrez and Vardy are still likely to provide an obstacle, though, There are arguably stronger options available in their brackets.
It could be Fuchs who attracts the most interest, having registered a goal and an assist in his last two starts.
Marco Silva's Hull are one of only eight teams to be involved in Gameweek 28, when they entertain Swansea City at the KCOM Stadium.
Owned by 0.2%, Grosicki could emerge as a differential for that fixture.
The winger has recorded nine shots in his previous two Gameweeks, second only to Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho (12) for FPL midfielders over that period.
