Goalkeepers

David Raya ( $8.03, Arsenal vs Wolves )

Anticipated to make a comeback after being unavailable for his parent team Brentford last game week, David Raya will confront a challenge from in-form Wolves attackers. Arsenal aims to secure three points with a clean sheet after doing just that in UCL action yesterday. The Gunners’ defense has shown improvement, conceding only two goals in their recent seven domestic games.

~~

Wes Foderingham ( $6.74, Burnley vs Sheffield Utd )

A name that has been somewhat overlooked in previous game weeks, Sheffield is facing a team that has struggled to score in the league. Sheffield appears to be adjusting to their ongoing injury crisis and has begun to accumulate points in recent weeks compared to Burnley.


Defenders

Harry Toffolo ( $6.77, Nott’m Forest vs Everton )

Toffolo consistently delivers impressive performances in Fantrax whenever he is in the starting lineup, frequently scoring double digits. With a series of narrow defeats in recent weeks, Nottingham Forest is eager to secure points in this upcoming game.

~~

Harry Maguire ( $7.83, Newcastle vs Man Utd )

Another Harry in the lineup, Harry Maguire has rejuvenated his career and is consistently starting for Man United week in and week out. Despite the fixture not being particularly favorable, his salary and recent form makes him a viable option.

~~

Valentino Livramento ( $2.12, Newcastle vs Man Utd )

Livramento finally has the opportunity to play following the injury to Dan Burn. He is a talented and promising ( and affordable! ) young player capable of contributing at both ends of the pitch. While he was unlucky to concede a controversial penalty in the last minute of the UCL, he has a chance to make amends in the upcoming heavyweight match this weekend!


Midfielders

Marcus Tavernier ( $9.25, Bournemouth vs Aston Villa )

Tavernier catches my attention in Fantrax whenever he stays clear of injuries! With players gradually returning from injuries, Bournemouth can now field a stronger squad, contributing to their recent run of three wins in four, and Tavernier is one of the keys to that uptick.

~~

Michael Olise ( $5.63, West Ham vs Crystal Palace )

With Eberechi Eze sidelined due to injury, Olise is set to maintain a crucial role in Crystal Palace’s offensive strategies. Scoring last week in his first start since returning from injury, he now faces West Ham, a team that has conceded goals in their last six league games. The Hammers’ vulnerable defense offers a favorable platform for Olise to continue regaining his form.

~~

Phil Foden ( $14.83, Man City vs Tottenham )

Despite Tottenham facing an injury crisis, Postecoglou emphasizes an open playing style, presenting an opportunity for Man City’s attackers to create chances. Foden, consistently scoring double digits in Fantrax for the past four matches, stands out as a key player. The only potential drawback would be the famous Pep roulette!


Forwards

Mo Salah ( $20.95, Liverpool vs Fulham )

When Liverpool plays at Anfield, Mo Salah is always the first player in my selection. His remarkable home scoring record this season makes it easy for Fantrax managers... who can afford his high cost. He is expected to deliver excellent value for his price.

~~

Jay Rodriguez ( $3.18, Burnley vs Sheffield Utd )

Rodriguez, though less popular among fantasy managers, has found a spot in my list due to his affordable salary and a favorable fixture. He faces a team with a major injury crisis in a defense that has conceded the most goals in the league. Additionally, considering the previous game week, he seems to be Burnley’s primary penalty taker.
