DEFENDER: Aaron Cresswell – £5.5m (Home v Leicester)
West Ham left-back Aaron Cresswell’s stock has finally begun to steadily rise after we pinpointed him earlier in the season, with 2.3% of Fantasy bosses now owning him.
Trouble lies ahead in the shape of Christmas fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal, but if you need a quick fix for this weekend then the arrival of Leicester City to Upton Park should provide Big Sam’s Hammers – for whom Cresswell has played every league minute this season – with a clean sheet.
MIDFIELDER: Ross Barkley – £6.8m (Away v Southampton)
Everton might just be making the trip to St Mary’s at the right time, as a stuttering Southampton have now suffered five defeats in a row.
Missing key midfielders Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin, Saints will be lacking in the centre of the field, and Barkley – fresh from his wonderful goal against QPR – can take advantage of that for the visitors.
FORWARD: Andy Carroll – £7.0m (Home v Leicester)
He scored twice the last time he played at Upton Park, and Andy Carroll will now have Leicester City in his sights as he bids to keep up his side’s impressive season.
Carroll has now started all of West Ham’s last five league games, and although he has tough matches ahead this fixture against the Premier League’s current doormats should provide him with some chances.
THE OUTSIDER: Ayoze Perez – £4.8m (Home v Sunderland)
His goal in the 4-1 loss at Arsenal might not have meant too much, but it was a fourth strike in the first English season for Newcastle’s young Spanish forward Ayoze Perez, and his first since three in a row in October and November.
Perez is already well-liked on the terraces at St James’ Park, but a strike against bitter rivals Sunderland in what promises to be a fascinating derby on Sunday will see him take on hero status, and he could be worth a punt at a knockdown price.
THE CAPTAIN: Yaya Toure – £10.8m (Home v Crystal Palace)
Diego Costa scored last week but he might find opportunities hard to come by away at Stoke, and so instead we’re moving further back and picked an old Fantasy favourite.
Yaya Toure has scored in three of his last five and remains one of the first names on the Manchester City teamsheet, which will be displayed before a hugely winnable match at home to Crystal Palace early on Saturday afternoon.
GW16 FPL REVIEW FROM @FANTASYGAFFER The stars turned out in force for gameweek 16, with the best XI a virtual who’s who of top performers turning in top performances. For Arsenal, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud both hit a brace while Burnley’s Tom Heaton posted the big score for goalkeepers with a clean sheet […]

Logie’s Premier League Preview Don’t forget to follow @OurLogie on Twitter The Premier League is back again this weekend with once more so many difficult games to predict. Last week wasn’t so great for me. My lowest total ever with only three out of then. But I’m back and world loves a trier. The […]
DEFENDER: Anthony Reveillere – £4.5m (Home v West Ham)
Ever since he came into the team in November, the veteran former France international Anthony Reveillere has only been on a losing Sunderland side once – and that was to a Sergio Aguero-inspired Manchester City.
The 35-year-old has quietly done a good job as he’s played the full 90 minutes in each of the previous six games, helping to keep clean sheets in three of the last four. It’s a bit of a left-field choice (unless you’re one of the 0.1% of bosses who owns him) but he could be a useful addition.
MIDFIELDER: Aaron Ramsey – £8.7m (Home v Newcastle)
He’s no longer a must pick for your side, but with a goal and an assist in his last two league games – and Champions League heroics that I SWEAR happened before we decided to recommend him – there are at least some signs that Arsenal’s Welshman Aaron Ramsey is finding some form.
His strike in the defeat against Stoke was his first since scoring in the first two games of the season, and Ramsey will again be looking to get on the front foot at home to Newcastle in a match that Arsene Wenger really dare not lose.
FORWARD: Romelu Lukaku – £9.0m (Home v QPR)
What’s that? You’ve got some Aguero money burning a hole in your back pocket? Well sending some of it in the direction of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku might be the right thing to do.
You’ll have to wait until Monday night to see if your move has paid off, but with QPR proving about as useful on the road as a clapped out old Renault in the hands of a learner driver, they aren’t likely to relish the trip to Goodison Park. Lukaku could take advantage of that.
THE OUTSIDER: Christian Benteke – £7.9m (Away v West Brom)
Injury ensures that only 1.1% of Fantasy bosses own Christian Benteke at the moment, but after Aston Villa earned back-to-back wins over Crystal Palace and Leicester – matches in which he registered a goal and an assist – then that number only looks like going up.
Outstanding on his day, Benteke might actually be playing for a move away from Villa over the next few weeks, and he could make you some points as he does so.
THE CAPTAIN: Eden Hazard – £10.4m (Home v Hull)
Okay, bear with me, but has Diego Costa started looking a little tired in recent matches?
With Cesc Fabregas suspended for Chelsea’s home clash with Hull, then a lot of the creative burden will be thrust upon Eden Hazard, and points for goals and assists could flow.
GW15 FPL REVIEW FROM @FANTASYGAFFER It’s been a hectic week at the Gaf’s household as we’ve welcomed a new baby boy. In celebration, I’ve opted to shirk some responsibility and combine the typical gameweek recap for each week; instead I’ve written a single EPL fantasy GW14 and GW15 post. Given the ‘what have you done […]
