Harper made three saves while blanking Crystal Palace 2-0 Saturday.

Harper received a second consecutive start in place of an ineffective Allan McGregor. Harper's play was impressive but a tough run of matches to finish the season hurts his fantasy value. A match against Burnley in Gameweek 36 might be the only clean sheet opportunity left.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Harper returned from a bicep injury to make the start Saturday against Burnley. He made two saves but allowed a second half goal during the Tigers 0-1 loss to the Clarets.

Harper let a good chance at a clean sheet go to waste by allowing Burnley to score. He is the second option for Hull City in goal, and with Allan McGregor due back soon, he would likely return to his role as a reserve.

Harper was forced to leave Saturday's match against Arsenal in the 43rd minute due to a bicep injury, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Before exiting, Harper had made four saves and allowed one goal. If the injury turns out to be a torn muscle, he is expected to miss significant time.

Harper was filling in for injured goalkeeper, Allan McGregor. If McGregor is unable to return for Hull City's next match, Eldin Jakupovic would get the start for the Tigers.

Harper started in place of the injured Allan McGregor (shoulder) and made one save during Hull City's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Harper nabs a clean sheet in his first Premier League start of the season, though he figures to have a much tougher time in his next matches, as Hull City travel to face Arsenal and Liverpool after the international break. McGregor is expected to be out for at least 4-to-6 weeks, so while Harper certainly makes for a cheaper play in most salary-cap formats, his upside is a bit limited in the short term given the opposition on the horizon.

Harper will fill in at net for the injured Allan McGregor (shoulder) for the next 4-6 weeks, the Yorkshire Post reports.

Harper certainly has the experience to make the guest appearance in net as he played in 19 games for Hull City last season.

Harper allowed three first-half goals Saturday as Hull City lost to Aston Villa 3-1. His five saves were not enough to help Hull City get the victory.

Harper and Hull City still have a trip to Manchester United before Gameweek 37 ends. They can expect to get a motivated United squad as the Red Devils are coming off a home loss to Sunderland.

Harper was only able to make one save while allowing two goals Saturday during Hull City's 2-2 draw with Fulham.

Harper has been playing in place of injured goalkeeper Allan McGregor. With McGregor out for the rest of the season, Harper continues to start. Despite getting the playing time, his fantasy value is limited in Hull City's final three matches, having to face Aston Villa, Manchester United and Everton.
