FORWARDS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. NEW (£27): Salah has a goal in six straight games, and at home versus Newcastle puts him in a good position to keep the streak alive. At this point we almost have to play Salah just to block because he's so chalky, and on a slate where lineup construction will allow us to play who we want, the Salah-Harry Kane partnership will be a popular one.

Harry Kane, TOT v. HUD (£27): Kane leads the Premier League with 24 goals, and there's no reason to think he'll be slowing down anytime soon. The last time he faced Huddersfield he bagged a brace and came away with 27.65 fantasy points on the road. With Spurs pushing for a top-four finish, we've got to believe Kane keeps the goals coming in a spot like this.

Troy Deeney, WAT v. WBA (£15): After a slow start to the season Deeney has stepped it up recently with two goals over his last three appearances. He now faces the worst team in the league, and considering how bad West Brom have looked, having some exposure to the Watford attack is warranted.

MIDFIELDERS

Christian Eriksen, TOT v. HUD (£25): Eriksen has topped double-digit fantasy points in seven of his last eight games, and he's had a hand in each of Tottenham's last two goals. He stands out as the elite midfielder to make room for in our lineups now that Sadio Mane is classified as a forward.

James Milner, LIV v. NEW (£16): Milner scored 10 fantasy points without a goal or assist in his last outing, marking back-to-back double-digit efforts. His price puts him firmly in play if he's in the lineup, but it wouldn't hurt to have a backup plan in mind with Milner and Liverpool featuring in the last game of the slate.

James Ward-Prowse, SOU v. STK (£15): JWP killed several lineups with his putrid 0.75 fantasy points at Burnley last Saturday, but now that he's back at home in a good matchup versus Stoke he's just too cheap to ignore. Prior to the dud, he scored at least seven points in five straight, and with Southampton on the relegation bubble I'm counting on him to make things happen.

DEFENDERS

Emre Can, LIV v. NEW (£16): Can blew up for 20.75 fantasy points with a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win over West Ham last Saturday. He's capable of contributing on both sides of the ball, and any clean sheet points would be a nice bonus considering he usually lines up in the midfield. As long as the matchup is reasonable, Can will continue to be in play as long as he's available as a defender.

Virgil van Dijk, LIV v. NEW (£15): Van Dijk showcased his ability to get to eight points without contributing to a goal or earning a clean sheet last weekend. Call it a hunch, but I feel like a VvD goal is right around the corner, and even if it doesn't come on Saturday, he's in another good spot to post a serviceable fantasy score at home against Newcastle.

Daryl Janmaat, WAT v. WBA (£14): Janmaat played his part in helping Watford earn a clean sheet against Everton in his last appearance, getting off an on-target shot in the process. He comes with goal scoring upside, having already scored three times this season, and also has a decent shot at another clean sheet bonus playing at home against last place West Brom.

GOALKEEPER

Hugo Lloris, TOT v. HUD (£16): With all the value on Yahoo we should be able to make room for Lloris, even as the highest priced goalkeeper. He has a shutout in four of his last five EPL appearances and he already held Huddersfield scoreless earlier in the season.
