The Scout looks at players who could soon be set for big points hauls, according to the ICT Index.
The Index helps Fantasy Premier League managers look beyond FPL points to determine players' values as FPL assets through their Influence, Creativity and Threat.
The Burnley midfielder has produced some impressive displays since securing a role in the starting XI.
McNeil ranks fourth among midfielders in the ICT Index across the last four Gameweeks.

The teenager has started the last four matches, a run which has coincided with a return to form for Burnley.
The Clarets have won three and drawn one of those fixtures, with McNeil providing returns in two.
He scored his debut senior goal in Gameweek 20's 2-0 win over West Ham United.
McNeil followed that up with an assist in a 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town in Gameweek 21.
His underlying statistics highlight his all-round impact.
McNeil's 11 shots over the last four Gameweeks is bettered only by the 21 of the in-demand Paul Pogba (£8.7m) among FPL midfielders.
His 29 crosses during that period also rank second in midfield, with McNeil also creating seven chances.
Burnley might struggle to continue their unbeaten run when they travel to Manchester United in Gameweek 24.
But four of the five matches that follow score no more than three in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).
Priced at only £4.4m, McNeil can be a strong cut-price midfield option for FPL managers during that period.
