FORWARDS

Sergio Aguero, MCI v. LEI (£29): Aguero stands out in a rather shallow forward pool, but he comes at a premium price as usual. You're paying for the biggest upside on the slate, and considering he's scored in each of his last four at home, and seven total over that span, you're in for a long day if you decide to fade Aguero in the final game of the day.

Raheem Sterling, MCI v. LEI (£25): Playing second fiddle to Aguero is Sterling, who comes with a £4 savings compared to his strike partner. Yes, I'm aware that the highest priced forwards are listed here, but the makeup of the slate allows for us to roster them with some creative roster construction. Sterling had two assists in his last home game, and he's hit double digits in four of his last five at the Etihad.

Theo Walcott, EVE v. CRY (£19): Walcott put up a dud in his return to Emirates Stadium last weekend, but he's back at home where he bagged a double in his Goodison Park debut. He looks rejuvenated with his new club, and it's clear that he's going to feature in the Everton attack moving forward.

Cenk Tosun, EVE v. CRY (£18): Keep an eye out for Tosun when starting lineups are announced, as he came off the bench at Arsenal but started his first two games for Everton before that. He's stumbled out of the gate but Tosun was brought in to score goals, and he has the ability to turn up with a breakout performance any given slate. As long as he's reasonably priced and starting, Tosun is worth a shot in tournaments

MIDFIELDERS

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI v. LEI (£26): KDB orchestrates the Manchester City attack, and he's gone for a combined 55.85 fantasy points over his last three games thanks, in part, to 12 shots, one goal and two assists over that span. While Leicester may present a stiffer challenge, City are still expected to score multiple goals with easily the highest implied goal total.

Xherdan Shaqiri, STK v. BHA (£21): Here we are again with Shaqiri. On a five0game slate with not many big-name midfielders up for grabs, Shaqiri becomes fantasy relevant again, especially at home versus Brighton. Add in that Stoke are currently sitting in the relegation zone, and I think we see a motivated effort from the Swiss attacker.

Bernardo Silva, MCI v. LEI (£18): Silva might not be the sexiest Manchester City attacking option, but he could be the cheapest and he's going to get opportunities as long as he continues to deputize for the injured Leroy Sane.

DEFENDERS

Vincent Kompany, MCI v. LEI (£15): Kompany topped eight points last Saturday in his first game since late December, and he's been vocal about how good he's feeling after overcoming lingering injury issues. Be ready to pivot to Aymeric Laporte at the same price as it'll likely be one or the other next to Nicolas Otamendi (£17) at center-back.

Daryl Janmaat, WHU v. WAT (£14): Janmaat scored a goal and finished with 14.20 fantasy points in Watford's shocking 4-1 win over Chelsea on Monday. He's a true boom-or-bust play as he's put up some one-to-two point totals, but he comes with goal-scoring upside.

Sam Byram, WHU v. WAT (£12): Byram's price reflects his 4.1 fantasy points per game average, but given the matchup and price, he's worth a shot as a salary saver.

GOALKEEPER

Jack Butland, STK v. BHA (£14): Butland has kept a clean sheet in two straight home games and faces a Brighton squad that have just one goal over their last seven away match. He saves a few pounds compared to the biggest favorite on the slate – Manchester City's Ederson – and his recent run of form at home combined with a vulnerable opponent puts Butland in play.
