STRIKERS

Raheem Sterling, MCI at EVE (€9M): With Sergio Aguero's status up in the air, Sterling could see more attacking opportunities fall his way playing at Everton. Regardless of Aguero, Sterling is a big part of the Manchester City attack and is averaging over 13 fantasy points per game this season.

Gabriel Jesus, MCI at EVE (€6M): Jesus is another player who stands to benefit from Aguero's potential absence. Even if Aguero is fit to play, it's very possible manager Pep Guardiola opts to rest him ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Liverpool, putting Jesus in play even if we don't have confirmation of Aguero's status ahead of lineup lock.

MIDFIELDERS

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, LIV at CRY (€9M): Oxlade-Chamberlain provides exposure to the Liverpool attack at a price that won't break the bank. Since Liverpool play in the first game of the day, we'll know for sure if he's starting, and given the matchup it's worth keeping an eye out for Ox once lineups are announced.

Juan Mata, MUN v. SWA (€7M): Mata is a cheap inlet to a Manchester United squad that is expected to handle Swansea with ease. While he's failed to hit double-digit points in five straight, his price is reasonable enough to take another shot with him in a good matchup.

Yohan Cabaye, CRY v. LIV (€6M): Cabaye is another potential value play to look out for in the first game. He averages 10 points per game, so for €6M he should exceed value if given a full allotment of minutes, even in a tough matchup. More than anything, if he starts he lessens the risk of being stuck with a zero considering there's no late swap.

DEFENDERS

Joel Matip, LIV at CRY (€8M): Matip is a peripheral-point magnet, scoring double figures in his last 15 starts. If he's in the starting lineup he's one of the first players in my lineup given his consistent point hauls.

Eric Bailly, MUN v. SWA (€6M): Bailly went for 8.8 fantasy points in a 2-1 win over Liverpool, and if he retains a spot in the starting lineup he makes for an excellent value considering Manchester United have the best clean sheet odds of any team on the slate.

Chris Lowe, HUD at NEW (€5M): Lowe returned from injury in Huddersfield's last game, logging 45 minutes after coming on at halftime in his first action since January. He notched six points in limited minutes, and he was regularly hitting double digits earlier in the season when he was getting consistent starts.

GOALKEEPER

Joe Hart, WHU v. SOU (€4M): Despite conceding three goals in his last appearance, Hart is projected to retain the starting job versus Southampton on Saturday. I think he bounces back in this one, and at near minimum price he's not going to kill a lineup even if he produces another three-point performance.
