PLAYER RECOMMENDATIONS

STRIKERS

Theo Walcott, EVE v. LEI (€7M): Walcott had an assist in his first start with Everton and he'll now look to open his Goodison Park account against Leicester on Wednesday. He hit double digits in his debut and is in a good spot to build on that as he continues to build chemistry with his new club.

Cenk Tosun, EVE v. LEI (€7M): Tosun has been relatively quiet since entering the Everton starting lineup two games ago, managing just two shots and playing fewer than 70 minutes in each match. He scored goals at a high clip in Turkey, and as is the case with Walcott, it shouldn't take too long for Tosun to get acclimated with his new side and open his account.

Michy Batshuayi, CHE v. BOU (€7M): Batshuayi is fresh off an FA Cup brace and with Alvaro Morata already ruled out, he could continue to feature up top. He scored 10.25 fantasy points in his last Premier League start, and with Chelsea favored to score goals at home against Bournemouth, it'll be hard to avoid Batshuayi at less than half the price of the most expensive options.

MIDFIELDERS

Cesc Fabregas, CHE v. BOU (€8M): Fabregas could return to the starting XI after missing time recently with a hamstring injury, and his price has been driven down by his absence. Prior to the injury the Spaniard was regularly topping double digits and already went for 14.10 points against Bournemouth earlier in the season.

Bernardo Silva, MCI v. WBA (€8M): Silva could benefit from Leroy Sane's absence, as Sane is set to miss the next several weeks with an ankle injury. Silva averages over 13 fantasy points per game as a starter, with the majority of those points coming from peripheral stats.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, MCI v. WBA (€7M): Zinchenko has been lining up in the Manchester City defense, but that didn't stop him from putting up some monster totals in his first Premier League start, as the 21-year-old logged 139 touches and completed 107 passes, finishing with 15.20 points. That's the type of production you expect from players that are double the cost, and if Zinchenko continues to produce in bulk it won't be long before he's priced in that tier.

DEFENDERS

Andreas Christensen, CHE v. BOU (€8M): While he's been subbed off before the 60-minute mark in each of the last two games, Christensen serves as the cheapest way into the Chelsea defense. When he was putting in 90-minute shifts he was consistently flirting with double-digit output, production worth rostering again in hopes that the trend of being subbed off early comes to an end.

Ashley Williams, EVE v. LEI (€7M): Williams put together an impressive 11.05 points in his last outing thanks to an uptick in accurate passes, touches and interceptions. If he continues to start, Williams checks in as a good value considering he's less than half the cost of the highest-priced defender.

Kieran Trippier, TOT v. MUN (€6M): Trippier has topped double digits in each of his last 11 starts and, with Serge Aurier still recovering from injury, he should slot right back into the starting lineup. At €6M, Trippier frees up a healthy batch of Euros to spend up on the heavy artillery.

GOALKEEPER

Alex McCarthy, SOU v. BHA (€7M): McCarthy has conceded five goals over his last three appearances, but he gets some fixture relief with Brighton coming to town. Brighton haven't scored in their last six away games, and with McCarthy potentially the cheapest starting goalkeeper, he could prove fruitful if the Brighton attack continues to falter.
