MATCHES (EDT)

Sunday, 8:30 a.m: Arsenal v. West Ham
Sunday, 8:30 a.m: Stoke City v. Burnley
Sunday, 11:30 a.m: Manchester City v. Swansea City

FORWARDS

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, ARS v. WHU ($11,500): Aubameyang has scored five goals in his last six starts, as he is beginning to find some comfort on the left wing, with Alexandre Lacazette occupying the striker position. The left wing has been a weak spot in the lineup for some time for the Gunners, so it seems like Aubameyang will continue to patch things up in this spot for the time being.

Gabriel Jesus, MCI v. SWA ($11,000): City beat the Swans 4-0 in Wales earlier this season, but Jesus didn't get a sniff of action in that one. Sergio Aguero has been injured for more than a month, so the burden has been on Jesus to continue City's fantastic scoring rate. He has scored in four of his last seven starts in all competitions, and with the title all wrapped up, look for City to chase records now with five games left in the season.

Ashley Barnes, BUR at STK ($8,000): Barnes has scored in five of his last seven Premier League starts, and he is coming up against the team with the worst defensive record in the league. He is definitely lower in the ranks than the two strikers above, but if you cannot afford the top two big guns on the slate, then Barnes should be your man.

MIDFIELDERS

Kevin De Bruyne, MCI v. SWA ($9,000): De Bruyne may have had a dip in form, but $9,000 is much too low for what you're getting here, especially in a spot against Swansea. He scored in the last meeting between these two sides in December, and since the title is all wrapped up for City, look for manager Pep Guardiola to loosen things up a bit, as the team tries to set some records to lighten the damage done by its elimination from UEFA Champions League.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, BUR at STK ($8,000): Gudmundsson has scored at least 20 fantasy points in seven of his last 12 starts, with three assists and a goal in that span, and he is Burnley's only set piece taker. The three assists have come in the last four games, and a matchup against the league's worst defense bodes very well for another good performance.

Badou Ndiaye, STK v. BUR ($6,500): Ndiaye simply provides a steady source of defensive production in the midfield at a cheap cost. He has reached double-digit fantasy points in every game since arriving at Stoke in January, though he should be considered as a last piece of the puzzle due to his limited attacking upside.

DEFENDERS

Arthur Masuaku, WHU at ARS ($5,500): Masuaku starts as a left wing-back for the Hammers, which helped grab him an assist three games ago. He has also created six chances in the past four games, and he has hit double figures in five of his past six.

Erik Pieters, STK v. BUR ($5,500): Pieters scored at least 20 fantasy points in four of his last eight matches, a solid 4x return for a defender in this price range, and a matchup against Burnley shouldn't limit that level of production.

Kyle Walker, MCI v. SWA ($5,500): Walker should get forward more than usual, with the pressure off due to the Premier League title that was clinched last week. Swansea will likely sit in deep looking for a scoreless draw, but that isn't likely to happen, so Walker will need to get forward to get more bodies in the attack.

GOALKEEPER

Nick Pope, BUR at STK ($5,500): Stoke are in a bit of a rut, scoring just six goals in the last 10 matches, without scoring more than one in a game during that span. Burnley, on the other hand, had not allowed more than a goal in 11 straight games before the midweek clash against Chelsea. Pope has also made four saves in six of the last nine.
