PLAYER RECOMMNEDATIONS

FORWARDS

Alexis Sanchez, ARS v. NEW ($11,000): Alexis has topped 26 fantasy points in each of his last three games despite no goals or assists. At home against Newcastle is a prime spot for him to snap out of his three-game goal drought, and if his 50-point game a month ago against Tottenham is any indication, you won't want to be caught without Alexis if he goes off.

Richarlison, WAT v. HUD ($10,000): Despite a lingering hamstring concern, Richarlison has been deemed fit for Saturday's home game against Huddersfield. He topped 30 points in midweek action at Crystal Palace and is positioned to top that mark again in a favorable match against a Huddersfield squad that have been outscored 16-0 over their last five on the road.

Alexandre Lacazette, ARS v. NEW ($9,000): Lacazette was limited to just eight minutes in midweek action, but he exploded for 46.5 points against Manchester United in his last home outing. He's back at the Emirates and facing lesser opposition in Newcastle, and with the Gunners looking to right the ship, Lacazette is positioned to make his mark on the score sheet for the third straight time at home.

MIDFIELDERS

Xherdan Shaqiri, STK v. WHU ($9,000): Shaqiri topped 20 points midweek without a goal or an assist and is in a strong spot to better that mark at home against West Ham. While a guy like Cesc Fabregas ($10,500) may be a safer play, Shaqiri saves a little bit of cash with the potential to match or even outscore his higher priced counterparts.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, BUR at BHA ($7,500): Gudmundsson continues to pile up with points with Robbie Brady out of the equation. He's averaged 25 fantasy points per game over his last four, and serving as Burnley's key creator in the attack he's in position to continue that trend at Brighton on Saturday.

Jack Wilshere, ARS v. NEW ($6,000): Wilshere could be set for a second consecutive start with Aaron Ramsey still dealing with a hamstring injury. He managed 17.75 points through a collection of peripheral stats at West Ham on Wednesday, and in a favorable home match against Newcastle he could prove to be the sleeper play that helps Arsenal snap out of their three-game winless streak.

DEFENDERS

Marcos Alonso, CHE v. SOU ($7,500): Alonso had 26.75 fantasy points, including an assist, in Chelsea's midweek win over Huddersfield, a reminder of the attacking upside he brings to the table as a defender. Southampton are no pushover, but any time you can get attacking exposure to Chelsea via the defender position it warrants consideration.

Sead Kolasinac, ARS v. NEW ($6,500): Kolasinac was rested in midweek action, but before that he was regularly moving forward to help out in the attack. With Arsenal big favorites to get the job done at home against Newcastle, look for Kolasinac to be involved on both sides of the ball, with the potential to turn in a monster score if he's involved in a goal.

Daryl Janmaat, WAT v. HUD ($5,500): Janmaat hit pay dirt with a goal and 35.75 fantasy points in Tuesday's 2-1 loss at Crystal Palace, registering three shots for the second straight game. Huddersfield isn't an opponent to shy away from, and if Janmaat is back in the lineup he's a good bet to produce good value again.

GOALKEEPER

Heurelho Gomes, WAT v. HUD ($5,000): Gomes and Watford welcome a Huddersfield attack that has failed to score a single goal in any of their last five games. The 10-point clean sheet bonus looks well within reach and considering the tight goalkeeper pricing, Gomes is as attractive of a play as any of the big favorites on the slate.
