PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

GOALKEEPER

Heurelho Gomes, WAT at ARS ($6,000): At a slight discount to the rest of the starting goalkeepers, Gomes is also in the running to face the highest number of shots. Arsenal force roughly three saves per match and averaged 5.2 over their past five matches (which is the highest for that time period among teams on the slate). Note: With Liverpool and Chelsea facing off, the only other clear high save option is Vito Mannone; however, he has proven less than reliable.

Lukasz Fabianski, SWA v. SOU ($6,400): Believe it or not, Southampton have forced the fourth-most saves this season, however they have the fourth-fewest goals scored. Southampton have also been shut out eight times this season. Add that to Swansea at home (yes the Swans are still underdogs, but much less so than normal) and there is potential for a solid outing for Fabianski.

DEFENDER

Juan Zuniga, WAT at ARS ($4,600): With Jose Holebas suspended for yellow card accumulation, Watford will need to replace their left wingback. When Holebas was suspended earlier this season, Zuniga filled in and scored 14.5 points against Leicester City, though away to Arsenal isn't comparable. Arsenal give up the fourth-most blocked shots and fifth-most interceptions, whereas Leicester City are below average in each category. Zuniga's spot in the starting lineup isn't guaranteed, so be sure to confirm it before kickoff.

Billy Jones, SUN v. TOT ($5,400): Check lineups prior to the match because Sunderland are going to be without Papy Djilobodji (suspension) and they just sold Patrick van Aanholt. This could open up some value with holes to fill. Jones represents the most consistent and highest ceiling among the Sunderland defenders now that PvA is gone, and the defense will be extremely busy trying to hold Tottenham at bay.

MIDFIELDER

Christian Eriksen, TOT at SUN ($10,100): Over the past six weeks, Eriksen has created the most chances and taken the second-most shots among midfield-eligible players. In a matchup against Sunderland, Eriksen will find himself on the ball often with more time and space than probably any other match this season. For this slate, Sunderland give up the second-most goals, assists, shots, chances created and most shots on goal. Dele Alli is also in play, as no one in the Premier League is more in form (eight goals in the last six matches), and while he is more goal dependent than Eriksen, he comes at a slight discount.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, SWA at SOU ($8.400): With one of his lowest prices of the season, Sigurdsson takes on a depleted Southampton defense. Over his last nine matches against non-top-six teams he is averaging just over 30 fantasy points with only three assists and three goals. Swansea need three points every week to help in their relegation battle and there are few players more involved in a team's attack than Sigurdsson.

Junior Stanislas, BOU v. CRY ($6,500): Crystal Palace have given up the second-most chances created, most goals, most assists, sixth-most shots and fifth-most shots on goal to midfielders this season. Without a clean sheet in the past eight matches, Palace will likely be shifting at least two members of their back line. Stanislas showed his floor last week with only 13.75 points, but he has weekly 30-point upside.

FORWARD

Harry Kane, TOT at SUN ($12,900): Sunderland have given up the third-most goals at home and are now down more players with Djilobodji suspended and van Aanholt sold. It's hard not to say Sunderland lost their ambition to stay up and we can take advantage with Kane who has the third-best goal-scoring odds and has six goals over his past five matches. Be sure to check lineups as he is battling a slight injury.

Alexis Sanchez, ARS v. WAT ($13,500): Alexis is averaging almost 35 fantasy points per game over his last six, falling below 33 just once. He is the most expensive player on the slate, but in a home matchup against Watford, who give up the fourth-most goals on the slate, we should expect Alexis to continue his excellent form. As a side note, he has the most points on FanDuel this season by 130, which is the same distance between second (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) and 12th (Robert Snodgrass).

Fernando Llorente, SWA at SOU ($7,600): Llorente is a goal-depended forward, but with less than 30 percent possession against Liverpool last week, he scored twice. Swansea look slightly better since Paul Clement came in and now Llorente will match up against Southampton, who are down two center-backs (one injured, one sold).
