FORWARD

Harry Kane, TOT v. HUD ($14,000): No surprise here, as Kane has a goal in three straight and leads the league with 24 on the season. He has arguably the best matchup on the board, and the oddsmakers seem to agree with Kane having the best anytime goal scorer odds.

Troy Deeney, WAT v. WBA ($7,500): Deeney has scored a goal and topped 30 fantasy points in two of his last three appearances and finally looks to be rounding into goal-scoring form. He gets a dream matchup against last place West Brom, and at $7,500 he makes for a good value to pair with Kane up top.

MIDFIELDERS

Mohamed Salah, LIV v. NEW ($13,500): Salah has topped 40 fantasy points in three straight games and simply can't be stopped at the moment. Aside from the goals, he's creating chances and adding assists, and at home versus Newcastle is a spot where we almost have to roll him out again in the event that he puts together another 40-burger.

Riyad Mahrez, LEI v. BOU ($10,500): While he failed to get on the scoresheet, Mahrez still managed 26.25 fantasy points versus Stoke in his return to the starting lineup. He fired off three shots on goal in that one, and with the transfer window drama seemingly behind him, he looks ready to get back to business and make his mark. A home game against a Bournemouth defense that shipped six goals over their last two games could be just what he needs to get back on track.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, LIV v. NEW ($8,000): Oxlade-Chamberlain exploded for 39 fantasy points with two shots on goal, four chances created and an assist in Liverpool's 4-1 win over West Ham last Saturday. He carries some risk considering he plays in the late game, but coming off a good performance and with James Milner nursing a niggling injury, I'd be surprised if he isn't in the starting lineup versus Newcastle.

DEFENDERS

Virgil van Dijk, LIV v. NEW ($8,000): Paying this much for a defender seems pretty absurd, but Van Dijk is one of few defenders capable of showing up with a 50-point performance. Along with his defensive contributions, van Dijk mixes it up on set pieces too, and I won't be shocked to see him open his Liverpool account soon.

Daryl Janmaat, WAT v. WBA ($6,500): Janmaat averages over 18 fantasy points per game and gives us goal-scoring upside that we want in tournaments. He gets a good matchup at home versus West Brom and looks in line to pick up defensive and attacking fantasy points.

Jose Holebas, WAT v. WBA ($6,000): With Gerard Deulofeu out of the equation, Holebas should see even more opportunities to turn up with an assist off a set piece. He has hovered right around 20 points in each of his last two games, and playing at home against West Brom is a spot where he can easily match or exceed that mark for the third straight game.

GOALKEEPER

Jack Butland, STK at SOU ($4,500): Butland stood on his head at Leicester in his last outing, making nine saves before ultimately deflecting the equalizer into his own net. He still came away with 22.75 fantasy points, and with Stoke's susceptible defense giving up multiple shots on goal per game, Butland should continue to be a fairly safe play regardless of if he concedes or not.
