The 21-year-old joins Frank de Boer's new-look Eagles on loan from Chelsea.
With a price tag of just £4.5m he looks a tantalising option.
Finding value in midfield can be vital to FPL success.
Now Loftus-Cheek is attracting interest even before a ball is kicked.
He is already the most popular option priced at £4.5m, acquired by 15.6% of managers.
Palace have signed a versatile midfielder.
At 6ft 3in, Loftus-Cheek is equipped to play in a deep-lying role.
But FPL managers will hope that De Boer exploits his attacking qualities in the manager's preferred 4-3-3 formation.
The loanee has previously shown promise when played in support of a lone striker.
He was limited to six appearances from the bench last season but made 13 in the 2015/16 campaign, averaging a shot every 33.9 minutes.
The midfielder also boasts seven goals in 17 starts for England's Under-21 side.
He can deliver exceptional value in Fantasy if he can cement a starting role.
Pre-season will give us an indication of whether he is likely to be given the freedom to support Christian Benteke (£8.0m) in attack.
If that is the case, the potential offered by Loftus-Cheek over Palace's opening fixtures looks irresistible.
