The Scout says Spurs forward has the form and fixtures to thrive as an FPL captain

With the second Fantasy Premier League Wildcard available, The Scout reviews the top targets to consider for the chip.

Harry Kane (TOT) £12.6m

The Tottenham Hotspur forward is the fourth-top scoring player in FPL after a superb run of winter form.

Kane has produced a goal or an assist in each of his last 10 Gameweek starts.

That has helped him tally 130 points, just two fewer than the top-scoring forward, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m).

The underlying statistics highlight Kane’s potential in Fantasy.

His 70 shots and 33 shots on target both rank among the top two players overall.

Captaincy credentials

Notably, Kane’s prospects for the captaincy have improved in recent weeks.

The Spurs striker produced three double-figure hauls in his last six starts.

This was after he had just two double-digit returns in his first 14 starts.

Kane now embarks on a kind run of opponents for Spurs that could provide more points for his 32.7 per cent owners.

Five of Spurs' next six opponents score three or fewer in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).

That allows Kane the chance to continue his goal involvement streak and strengthen his claim as a serious captain contender in FPL.
