MATCHES (EST)

FORWARDS

Mohamed Salah, LIV at WAT (£30): Salah has gone for at least 17 fantasy points in three of his last five starts, showcasing his ability to impact the leaderboards any given game. With the Premier League trophy within sight, we can expect the Egyptian to continue to wreak havoc until the job is done.

Danny Ings, SOU at WHU (£24): Ings is somewhat surprisingly right in the thick of the Golden Boot race, sitting just two goals behind Pierre-Emerick Auabameyang and Jaime Vardy. He's slowed down a bit with just one goal in his last five games, but he's in prime position for a big performance against a poor defensive side in West Ham.

Jay Rodriguez, BRN at NEW (£19): Rodriguez comes in hot, averaging over 11 fantasy points per game across his last four appearances. He has two goals on 11 shots (eight on target) in that span, and with Burnley jockeying for position in the table we can expect him to continue to fire away at Newcastle on Saturday.

MIDFIELDERS

Dwight McNeil, BRN at NEW (£18): McNeil broke out for 24 points last game through a goal and an assist. It was his first appearance on the score-sheet since November, but it could be the boost of confidence he needs to get involved more often down the stretch. He's still standing over the occasional set piece and gets a fantasy friendly matchup at Newcastle.

Robert Snodgrass, WHU v. SOU (£18): Snodgrass is heating up with two goals and two assists over his last three outings. Even though he's at home, it's not an absolute smash spot in a difficult matchup with Southampton. That being said, he comes at a nice discount compared to where he is across the rest of the industry.

Michail Antonio, WHU v. SOU (£17): We're essentially getting an additional forward in our lineups if we go with Antonio in this spot, as he's been seeing regular minutes up top over the last few months. He doesn't have the goals or assists to back this pick up, but he's been getting off multiple shots and crosses, leading one to believe he gets back involved on the score-sheet very soon.

DEFENDERS

Trent Alexander-Arnold, LIV at WAT (£19): TAA doled out a pair of assists in his last EPL outing, running his assist total up to 14 for the season. He continues to stand over a majority of Liverpool's set pieces, giving him a safe-ish floor to fall back on if his sky-high ceiling isn't enough. On a condensed slate with not much separating the top defender in terms of salary, Alexander-Arnold once again looks like good value in a favorable matchup.

Reece James, CHE at BOU (£17): James has some added upside as a defender who comes with set-piece appeal. As long as he continues to see opportunities to make a mark on the score-sheet through a goal or a set-piece assist, he typically does enough defensively to warrant strong consideration in a matchup with Bournemouth.

Ryan Bertrand, SOU at WHU (£14): Bertrand rattled off a season-high three shots last game, and while that's not to be expected of him on a consistent basis, he's able to make an impact on both ends of the pitch. He also has a role on set pieces, which certainly gives his fantasy stock a bump.

GOALKEEPER

Wilfredo Caballero, CHE at BOU (£14): Caballero has taken over as the preferred goalkeeper for the Blues, though his price has yet to adjust to reflect his starting role. Chelsea are the second-biggest favorite on the slate, and while he's not nearly as attractive as Allison Becker, I don't mind taking the £5 savings with Caballero in this spot.
