With Mohamed Salah (£10.4m) and Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) also delivering 13 and 21-point scores respectively, it raised the average score for an FPL manager in the Gameweek to 61, the highest of the season.
Hazard’s contribution was crucial to his 474,000 owners, particularly the 119,000 who handed him the captaincy.
It moved the Belgian to 138 points for the season, ranking him among the top 10 overall scorers in FPL.
Significantly, he is one of only two players in the top 10 with less than 10% ownership, or teams selected by (TSB). Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m) is the other.
Despite scoring six goals in his last six Gameweeks, Hazard has lost more than 215,000 owners over that spell.
Top 10 FPL points scorers
Managers being put off
But Hazard scored four goals against those two teams last season.
Despite that record and his average of 10.5 points per match over the past four Gameweeks, FPL managers still seem unconvinced.
Time to take advantage?
Hazard’s ownership continues to decline, with 8,000 managers signing him ahead of Gameweek 28, but 13,000 selling.
That could play into the hands of those looking to hold on to the Belgian through those tough fixtures.
Given his form and modest ownership, Hazard’s influence on the FPL season as a big scoring differential could be significant.
