Priced at £5.0m, the Southampton right-back already has an ownership of 14.8%.
Although he registered only three assists in 2016/17, the Portugal international was a major creative force.
With Brunt reclassified as a midfielder for 2017/18, Cedric is the standout defender for crossing potential.
The arrival of manager Mauricio Pellegrino should also boost the defender's potential for clean sheets.
Pellegrino’s former club Alaves conceded only 43 times last season. This was the fifth-best record in LaLiga.
Encouragingly, Cedric made more successful tackles (83) than any Southampton defender last season.
Tackling is a key element of the Bonus Points System (BPS), which boosts his prospects of extra returns.
According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only one of Southampton's first 11 matches scores more than two.
Their start includes three home matches over the first four Gameweeks.
