The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 1 of Fantasy Premier League.
The Crystal Palace youngster could be one of the cheapest available starters in FPL for 2018/19.
Wan-Bissaka looks to have established himself as a regular on the Eagles teamsheet during pre-season.
Palace had a much-improved defence once Hodgson was installed as manager in Gameweek 5 last term.
They produced nine clean sheets, a total bettered only by teams finishing in the top seven places.
The underlying statistics indicate that Wan-Bissaka can help further that resilience.
He won 19 tackles in his seven Gameweek appearances last term. His average of 33 minutes per successful tackle was far more frequent than the 53.9 minutes of Ward.
Palace will be optimistic of a clean sheet away to Fulham in Gameweek 1.
The Cottagers have failed to score in five of their eight matches during pre-season.
There are other enticing options across Hodgson’s defence. James Tomkins (£4.5m) and Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m) carry a big goal threat, while Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) offers the best chance of bonus points when Palace keep a clean sheet.
But at such a low cost, Wan-Bissaka can offer unbeatable value and rise well beyond his current 7.2 per cent ownership.
