Harry Kane ended his August goal drought in spectacular style, scoring 11 goals in his last six matches across all competitions.
In FPL terms, the Tottenham Hotspur striker has provided six goals and a trio of 13-point hauls.
But significantly, all of these have arrived in away matches, as Spurs struggle to break down opponents at Wembley Stadium.
Kane’s underlying numbers back up his recent his scoring streak.
He has attempted more shots (44), more penalty-area shots (30) and had more shots on target (16) than any other forward.
Kane has also hit the woodwork on five occasions this season, three more than any other player.
And yet he ranks only fourth for big chances, with seven.
If Spurs can improve the service to Kane (particularly at home where he has had just one big chance) then his consistency should improve.
|Total||FPL forward rank|
|Shots in box||30||1|
|Shots on target||16||1|
Now owned by 37.1%, the case for Kane is becoming overwhelming.
But Spurs’ struggles at home and a testing schedule of fixtures provide a catch.
That run raises doubts over Kane as the optimum choice of FPL captain, but to ignore him completely looks a major risk.
Should Spurs click at home, Kane’s output could be unrivalled.
Significantly, of their next seven opponents at Wembley, only one scores more than two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings.
The Scout's verdict: If you do not have Kane, now should be the time to join the crowd.
