Huth has registered two goals and an assist in his last eight Gameweek starts, while Craig Shakespeare’s Foxes have kept clean sheets in three of their previous six matches.
That combination has helped Huth average 4.5 points per match over his last eight starts, compared with just 1.9 points per match prior to Gameweek 27.
It is the goal threat of the 2.1%-owned Huth that makes him stand out.

He also ranks first among Leicester City players for clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) with 294, although, somewhat surprisingly, he has managed to accrue a single bonus point.
The Hornets have only managed to keep two clean sheets in their 16 away trips, have conceded the most goals from crosses (22) and have shipped 11 goals from corners – second only to Hull City.
Watford have also failed to score in each of their last four away trips, boosting the prospects of another Foxes shutout.
Both may be unlikely to offer defensive returns but Huth’s menace at set-pieces will remain a factor. He scored a brace at the Etihad Stadium in last season’s 3-1 victory.
But Huth is an assured starter and his presence in the opposition box is the key factor that could help him emerge as an end-of-season bargain.
