The Italian forward made an instant impact in FPL after signing for Saints in January, scoring four goals in his first three Gameweek starts to total 25 points.
In those three matches he averaged a shot every 15.3 minutes - more frequently than any other forward over the same spell.
That sparked an immediate flurry of transfers, with more than 340,000 FPL managers drafting him in across Gameweeks 26 and 27.
Completing 85 minutes at Stamford Bridge, Gabbiadini looked considerably sharper against the Blues. He produced three shots from within the penalty area and maintained a record of a goal or an assist in every appearance over 60 minutes for Southampton.
With Hull City up next at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, 13,000+ FPL managers have already turned to Gabbiadini as his ownership begins to climb towards its previous high of 439,000.
Over the last four Gameweeks, the Tigers have conceded eight goals and are ranked joint-third for both penalty-box shots against (39) and "big chances" allowed (nine).
Hull’s recent away record will also offer Saints and Gabbiadini encouragement. They have lost six of their last seven road trips under head coach Marco Silva, conceding 17 goals.
Owned by only 3.5% of FPL managers, Gabbiadini looks set to be a pivotal figure over the remainder of the campaign.
Having already demonstrated his prolific talents, and with those extra fixtures in hand, few FPL forwards can match the potential offered by the Italian over the season run-in.
