The Scout is naming five players who can make a big impact in Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 5.
The Cherries are still without a point and have scored only a single goal. But King has been unfortunate.
He struck a post in the Gameweek 3 defeat to Manchester City, and the statistics hint that he could soon start replicating last season's scoring form.
In 2016/17 he totalled 16 goals and three assists to deliver outstanding value as an FPL midfield option.
Over that campaign, he averaged 1.9 shots and 3.8 penalty-area touches per match.
Despite failing to find the net this season, King (now reclassified as a forward) has maintained those levels.
He has averaged 1.8 shots per match, while his touches in the penalty area have increased to 5.2.
Jermain Defoe (£7.8m) has arrived to boost Eddie Howe's attacking options but King remains his main goal threat.
King has registered more shots (seven) and penalty-area shots (six) than any team-mate.
Many FPL managers are currently seeking a new mid-price solution in attack.
More than 273,000 managers have sold one of that trio.
King could prove a perfect short-term replacement.
Part of only 2.6% of squads, if he can ignite AFC Bournemouth’s season against the Seagulls, he could prove a major differential for Gameweek 5.
The FPL GW5 deadline is Friday 15 September, 19:00 BST
