PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

FORWARDS

Harry Kane, TOT v. STK ($13,500): Kane stands out as the top option on a slate lacking big-name players. He saw his run of three consecutive games with a goal come to an end last weekend, but he's in a good spot to bounce back at home against Stoke City. Fade Kane at your own risk on a slate where he'll be heavily owned in all formats.

Richarlison, WAT at BUR ($9,500): After Kane, there really are no obvious plays for the second forward spot. Richarlison offers arguably the highest upside of any other forwards, especially when you consider the options around him at a similar price. Burnley have allowed the most shots of any team in the Premier League, so we can expect Richarlison to have some opportunities fall his way.

Chris Wood, BUR v. WAT ($8,500): Wood is the leading scorer on a Burnley team that is surprisingly even with Tottenham on points and sit seventh in the Premier League. An ugly slate like this is where a goal-dependent forward will likely be the difference maker in tournaments and, with Burnley looking to distance themselves from visitors Watford, Wood could be that guy.

MIDFIELDERS

Christian Eriksen, TOT v. STK ($10,500): With Spurs being the biggest favorite on the slate by a wide margin, there's no doubt Tottenham's key players will be popular. While Eriksen hasn't done much recently to set himself apart from other popular midfielders, he still emerges as a top target on this slate based on the matchup at home against Stoke combined with the lack of other options.

Matt Ritchie, NEW v. LEI ($8,000): Ritchie has been playing with a broken wrist the last two games but that hasn't stopped him from hitting 22 fantasy points in each. He's Newcastle's main attacking threat and at home against Leicester there's a good chance he turns it up again.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, BUR v. WAT ($6,000): Gudmundsson showed up with 33 fantasy points at Leicester last weekend without a goal or an assist. At nearly half the cost, he's been consistently outscoring the highest-priced midfielders on the slate (Eriksen and Dele Alli) recently. With Robbie Brady out for the season, he'll be asked to shoulder even more of the attacking load beginning with a good matchup at home against Watford.

DEFENDERS

Kieran Trippier, TOT v. STK ($7,500): Aside from a six-point dud at Arsenal a few weeks ago, Trippier has averaged 25 fantasy points per game over his last five league starts. Considering he was rested for Tottenham's midweek Champions League game, Trippier should be right back in the mix in a favorable matchup versus Stoke.

Christopher Schindler, HUD v. BHA ($7,500): Schindler had eight clearances in each of his last three games, scoring over 22 points in each. He's as consistent as they come on FanDuel and positioned to continue piling up the defensive stats at home against Brighton.

Phil Bardsley, BUR v. WAT ($5,500): Bardsley has averaged 20 fantasy points per game filling in for Matthew Lowton the last two games. With Lowton questionable to return Saturday, Bardsley could continue to deputize and checks in as a nice value at $5,500.

GOALKEEPER

Lukasz Fabianski, SWA v. WBA ($5,000): Fabianski scored just two points last weekend, but he leads the league in saves and is at home against a West Brom attack that has just one goal in their last three away games.
