After a busy week of transfers for Huddersfield, The Scout analyses their FPL potential

Huddersfield Town's busy summer transfer activity has given Fantasy Premier League managers an array of bargain options, ahead of the game's launch next week.

Tom Ince

At £6.0m, Tom Ince is undoubtedly the top target.

Huddersfield scored only 56 goals last season, so Ince, who supplied 14 goals and six assists in 2016/17, will boost their goal potential.

Averaging a shot every 28 minutes, Ince's 129 efforts ranked second in the Championship.

He is creative, too, supplying a key pass every 51.5 minutes.

Of Huddersfield's squad, only their set-piece taker Aaron Mooy (102) created more chances than Ince’s 70.

Steve Mounie

Huddersfield have also added to their frontline with Steve Mounie, from Montpellier.

The club-record signing produced 14 goals and three assists in Ligue 1 in 2016/17, averaging a shot every 27 minutes.

At 6ft 3in, Mounie poses a major threat in the air.

The 293 headers he won last season is bettered only by Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke (318) among FPL forwards.

Palmer and Williams

Attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer will strengthen David Wagner’s options in the support role behind the striker.

The loanee from Chelsea produced four goals and three assists in 25 appearances for the Terriers last term. 

But, Danny Williams, despite delivering four goals and one assist for Reading last season, is expected to have less of an FPL impact.

The American is likely to be handed a deep-lying midfield role in front of the back four.

Defensive depth

After Huddersfield conceded 58 goals last season, with only 12 clean sheets, Wagner has added to his defence, bringing in Scott Malone and Mathias Jorgensen.

Supplying six goals and three assists for Fulham last season, Malone will provide stiff competition at left-back for Chris Lowe.

Malone's average of 88.8 minutes per shot was better than Lowe’s 145.2.

Jorgensen, a 6ft 3in centre-half, offers a threat in the opposition penalty area, scoring twice in last season’s UEFA Champions League for Copenhagen. 

Promising opening fixtures can help Huddersfield Town provide strong FPL value in the early Gameweeks.

With that in mind, Ince and his fellow new signings demand careful attention over the pre-season.
