Out: Fantasy-relevant players who have been confirmed out for the week, either through injury or suspension
Doubt: Players facing the dreaded fitness test, rotation concerns and those who are out of form/favor
In: The likeliest replacements for the Outs & Doubts or those returning from injury
Win: Fantasy player to watch / my hunch pick of the week
Out: Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Tomas Rosicky, Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere
Win: Mesut Ozil
The wait continues for many fantasy stars, while the regulars of late keep on keeping on. The trip to Anfield could be tricky, but the offensive side is probably a better bet than the defensive side, and nobody's on fire like Mesut "Wedding Toast" Ozil.
Out: Jordan Amavi, Alan Hutton, Carols Sanchez, Adama Traore
Doubt: Gabby Agbonlahor, Jack Grealish
In: Jores Okore
Win: Joleon Lescott
A home fixture with Crystal Palace should be a low-scoring affair, so let's go with Lescott. Not that you should really go with anyone from Aston Villa except perhaps Jordan Ayew or Jordan Veretout if you've already got either them on the cheap.
Out: Tommy Elphick, Max Gradel, Tyrone Mings, Callum Wilson
Doubt: Joshua King
In: Juan Iturbe, Benik Afobe
Win: Junior Stanislas
Bournemouth has a couple of shiny new signings on the offensive end in the form of Afobe and Iturbe, either or both of whom could see some action. But if you're looking for someone reliable who is basically guaranteed a start, can you look at anyone else but Stanislas?
Out: Radamel Falcao, Eden Hazard, Loic Remy
Doubt: Diego Costa, Nemanja Matic, Oscar
In: Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Bertrand Traore
Win: Branislav Ivanovic
With West Brom in town and with Hazard and possibly several other key offensive players out, a low scoring affair seems in order. You have to love the chance at a clean sheet, and Ivanovic offers plenty of attacking bonus points as well.
Out: Yannick Bolasie, Dwight Gayle
In: Yohan Cabaye, Connor Wickham
Win: Joel Ward
Cabaye returns from suspension and injury, but with Bolasie and Gayle out and Wickham fit but doubtful to start, Palace will probably go for a low scoring win at Villa Park. So let's stick with the defensive side, where you could toss a coin between Dann and Ward, who always offer the possibility of offensive returns as well.
Out: Tyias Browning, Seamus Coleman, Luke Garbutt, James McCarthy
Doubt: Tom Cleverley, Ramiro Funes Mori, Romelu Lukaku, Steven Naismith
In: Phil Jagielka
Win: Leighton Baines
The trip to the Etihad is obviously imposing, even moreso given the possible absence of Romelu Lukaku and several others. With fitness doubts in the back line, Phil Jagielka may slot into the starting line-up.
Out: Jeffrey Schlupp
Doubt: Jamie Vardy
In: Shinji Okazaki
Win: Riyad Mahrez
Jamie Vardy is rated 50/50 to start by Claudio Ranieri, which makes the usual choice between Vardy and Mahrez pretty easy, right? Matty James is fit, but is there a place for him in the starting line-up? Leicester City has been struggling to score goals lately while their defense has been holding down the fort, so you could just as easily choose Schmeichel or a defender. At White Hart Lane, though, this is a week when you probably shouldn't load up on Tigers.
Out: Philippe Coutinho, John Flanagan, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Dejan Lovren, Divock Origi, Martin Skrtel
Doubt: Jordan Henderson, Jordon Ibe, Mamadou Sakho, Daniel Sturridge, Kolo Toure
In: Lucas Leiva
Win: Adam Lallana
Arsenal is healthier than Liverpool?! Amazingly enough, indeed. It's not as if Liverpool is completely devoid of talent or hope, but without Coutinho, Lovren and Skrtel on the sidelines and with several other key doubts, proceed with caution.
Out: Vincent Kompany, Samir Nasri
Doubt: Wilfried Bony, Eliaquim Mangala
In: Martin Demichelis
Win: Kevin De Bruyne
While Vincent Kompany's injury leaves the preferred starting 11 unfulfilled and Demichelis may start if Mangala cannot, the offensive side should be humming with Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, David Silva and Yaya Toure running rampant. De Bruyne has enjoyed several memorable home performances this season, so he's as good a pick as any for fantasy glory.
Out: Marcos Rojo, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia
Doubt: Phil Jones
Win: Chris Smalling
The back line could be messy if Jones cannot suit up, but this is not Alex Ferguson's Manchester United, so you've still got to like the chances of a clean sheet better than an offensive explosion, right?
Out: Papiss Cisse, Tim Krul, Massadio Haidara, Gabriel Obertan, Steven Taylor
Doubt: Rolando Aarons, Vernon Anita, Jack Colback, Fabricio Coloccini, Kevin Mbabu, Florian Thauvin
Win: Robert Elliot
Robert Elliot and the Newcastle defense seem to be feast or famine. With the anemic offense of Manchester United visiting, let's go with feast here.
Doubt: Matt Jarvis
In: Andre Wisdom
Matt Jarvis looks to make a return from injury, but will likely do so from the bench. Visiting the fortress of Stoke City, Norwich is probably hoping to keep it nil-nil as long as possible before nicking a late goal. I'm not saying it's going to happen, but it could.
Out: Florin Gardos, Jay Rodriguez, Victor Wanyama (suspended)
Doubt: Fraser Forster
In: Graziano Pelle
Win: James Ward-Prowse
It is probably too early for Fraser Forster's long-awaited return from injury, but Pelle should be able to. Watford tends to play a more open style on the road than at home, so let's go on the offensive end. Pelle could be rusty, while Mane and Tadic are inconsistent, so let's take a punt on Ward-Prowse who is due a big game.
Doubt: Phil Bardsley, Geoff Cameron, Stephen Ireland
Win: Jack Butland
Stoke City has to like its chances on both ends in this one with Norwich coming to town. But a clean sheet is always a better bet than an offensive explosion for Stoke, and it's tough to bypass Butland.
Out: Younes Kaboul, Sebastian Larsson
Doubt: Jack Rodwell, John O'Shea
In: Jan Kirchhoff
Win: Jermain Defoe
New transfer Jan Kirchhoff could see action straightaway given Kaboul's injury and O'Shea's doubtful status. Defoe scored a brace, so let's pick him to continue his form.
Win: Ashley Williams
Swansea did eke out a win last week, but it came via a fluky goal and the club's defense remains the best bet, though both sides of the ball look attractive with Sunderland coming to town.
Out: Clinton N'Jie
Doubt: Moussa Dembele, Ryan Mason
Win: Dele Alli
Leicester City's offense is not as dangerous as it once was and its defense has looked more formidable lately, but I still like Spurs' chances of scoring better than their shot at keeping a clean sheet in this one, and Alli is a veritable beehive of activity.
Out: Nathan Ake (suspension), Joel Ekstrand, Tommy Hoban
Win: Odion Ighalo
As mentioned, Watford tend to score and allow goals on the road with much more frequency than at home. With Troy Deeney the subject of transfer rumors, Ighalo should be the pick here. Not exactly going out on a limb there!
Out: Ben Foster
Doubt: Victor Anichebe, Jonas Olsson
Win: Solomon Rondon
Chelsea rarely gets shut out at home, even this season when it has been putrid, so if you're going to take a punt on West Brom, a look to the offensive side may be in order.
Out: Manuael Lanzini, Victor Moses, Diafra Sakho
Doubt: Cheikhou Kouyate, Enner Valencia
In: Dimitri Payet
Fantasy owners everywhere rejoice at the return of Dimitri Payet who should get the start. At least, those who held on to him do. Difficult to imagine him going the full 90 minutes, though, so how about we go with keeper Adrian who has been doing well lately?.
My fantasy teams (named Stallone Wall) at the moment:
Butland / Alderweireld, Bellerin, G Johnson, Ward / Alli, De Bruyne (C), Mahrez, Ozil / Kane, Lukaku (V) / Bench: Kolarov, Barkley, Vardy [Official BPL]
Hennessey / Baines, Ivanovic, Shawcross / Cabaye, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Veretout / Aguero, Kane, Lukaku [Fantrax]
Butland / Dann, Koscielny, G Johnson, Wollscheid / Alli, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Ozil / Aguero, Kane [Togga Perfect XI]
How are your squads coming together?
