The Scout looks at players expected to progress and make a big impact in 2018/19 Fantasy Premier League.
If the Benin International can cement a starting role, he can become the go-to budget striker in Fantasy.
Mounie’s end-of-season displays were encouraging.
Signed from Montpellier last summer, he started only 11 of Huddersfield Town’s first 26 Gameweeks.
But he established himself as a regular over the season run-in.
Mounie started 10 of the final 12 matches as a lone striker, getting the nod ahead of Laurent Depoitre.
His statistics over that period highlight a growing influence.
Mounie's 28 shots, 25 of which were in the box and 10 of which were on target, were all more than any team-mate.
Indeed, from Gameweek 27 onwards, only two FPL forwards managed more shots from inside the penalty area.
Mounie’s aerial threat was a key weapon for David Wagner’s side in that late run.
His total of 14 headed efforts was more than any other player.
|Mins/shot in box||67.4||33.9|
|Mins/goal or assist||252.8||169.4|
Mounie’s contribution suggests that he will be vital for Huddersfield Town next season.
When selected, he scored or assisted 64 per cent of their total team goals in 2017/18.
That is a higher share than any forward who played a minimum of 1,000 minutes.
Mounie is likely to remain at a price of around £6.0m after scoring 92 points in his debut FPL season.
If Wagner keeps him at the head of the Huddersfield Town attack, the annual search by FPL managers for a reliable budget forward could be resolved.
