10:00 a.m: Tottenham v. Swansea City
10:00 a.m: Crystal Palace v. Southampton

10:00 a.m: West Brom v. Watford
12:30 p.m: West Ham v. Arsenal
Hugo Lloris, TOT v. SWA ($5,800): Tottenham are both the most likely winners and most likely to record a clean sheet. Though Lloris' save percentage has waned to 72.7 percent after a tough run of form against opponents like Chelsea and Arsenal, the Frenchman should still be regarded as one of the best keepers in the league and the undoubted chalk as they host Swansea.
Jordan Pickford, SUN v. LEI ($4,500): Pickford has 16 saves in the last three weeks, with as many as eight in one match. Sunderland continue to be poor, and as talks to sell the club begin to whirl, its not expected to turn around soon. However, all of the defensive leaks increase Pickford's save upside, and he's proven competent to handle large onslaughts of shots on goal without letting too many through.
Cedric Soares, SOU at CRY ($4,900): Cedric, in his last four starts, has contributed to four clean sheets and averaged 11.25 fantasy points per game. He has high crossing upside (he had 10 crosses against Swansea back in September), and now after playing 90 minutes in consecutive matches is showing his health is not an issue after missing most of October and the first half of November.
Arthur Masuaku, WHU v. ARS ($4,000): With Aaron Cresswell doubtful, Masuaku could make his first appearance since suffering an injury back in mid-September. In the three matches prior to the injury, Masuaku totaled 32 fantasy points. The matchup difficulty could cause hesitation at first, but seeing 12 fantasy points in an away matchup against Manchester City earlier in the year brings a bit more confidence.
Virgil van Dijk, SOU at CRY ($3,800): "Set plays, we just cannot seem to defend set plays," says Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew. Van Dijk is among the best there is in the box. Though he's tallied just one goal this season (it was in Europa League play), it is of note that the Dutch center-back has six shots across his last five starts in EPL and UEL play.
Christian Eriksen, TOT v. SWA ($8,400): Regaining form (and all corners), Eriksen faces off against a Swansea side that have allowed 11 goals in their last four matches. Eriksen turned in his best performance of the season last time out in the loss to league-leaders Chelsea, finishing with one goal on four shots (two on target), along with a season-high 12 crosses.
Xherdan Shaqiri, STK v. BUR ($7,800): Stoke are the second-highest favorites as they host a Burnley side coming off consecutive losses, including a 4-0 loss at the hands of West Brom. Since returning from an injury that pulled him out of a match against Swansea after just 26 minutes, Shaqiri's stat lines have included solid numbers of shots and crosses – just not the end product that was showcased in the brace of goals he provided in the match against Hull.
Steven Davis, SOU at CRY ($4,300): With Dusan Tadic (nose) out, Davis likely steps into corner-taking duty, unless James Ward-Prowse ($4,500) unexpectedly gets the start, in which case Ward-Prowse would become the more desirable option. Crystal Palace are on an abhorrent run of form, losing six consecutive matches and allowing 18 goals in that span.
Harry Kane, TOT v. SWA ($8,700): Kane scored four goals in his first three matches (including UCL) since coming back from injury. The production dried up last time out against Chelsea, but in a highly favorable home matchup (Tottenham have the highest implied goal total of any team this weekend), Kane should be leaned on as the most likely goal scorer on the slate.
Olivier Giroud, ARS at WHU ($7,700): Giroud is expected to recover from his hamstring issue and could get the start. However, Arsenal play in the late game, and there is a risk that any pivot won't have as much upside. Because of the risk, Giroud should be lower-owned in tournaments. Since returning to the team in late October, Giroud has scored five goals in 342 minutes (1.3 goals per 90 minutes).
Nathan Redmond, SOT at CRY ($6,400): There are a number of value plays from Southampton, particularly with Tadic out. Charlie Austin is expensive, but there are values on the wings like Redmond, Sofiane Boufal and Josh Sims. Redmond has gone scoreless in four consecutive league matches, but prior to that had scored goals in consecutive games. While questionable to start, Sims ($5,000) made quite the debut last weekend with an assist, three shots (two on goal), three crosses, two fouls drawn and two tackles, adding up for 17 fantasy points, which pretty good for your first appearance in the Premier League.
