Harper managed just one save while allowing two goals in Saturday's 2-0 loss to Tottenham.

After recording two consecutive clean sheets in April, Harper has struggled in May. In three matches he has allowed six goals while making eight saves. A home match against Manchester United in the finale will not likely provide much fantasy opportunity for Harper.

Harper made just one save while allowing a goal in Saturday's disappointing 0-1 loss to Burnley.

Hull City now find themselves in the relegation zone with two matches to play. Both matches come against strong opponents which will limit any potential fantasy value for the rest of the season.

Harper was terrific Tuesday as he made nine saves en route to helping Hull City defeat Liverpool 1-0.

The clean sheet was Harper's second in a row. The remaining matches get a bit tricky, but having three out of four at home will help and give Harper a chance to keep some additional clean sheets.

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.

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 will miss the next three weeks due to a torn bicep muscle, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

With Harper and Allan McGregor out this weekend, expect Eldin Jakupovic to get the start against Liverpool.

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.
