10:00 a.m: Everton v. Brighton
10:00 a.m: Huddersfield v. Swansea City
10:00 a.m: Newcastle v. Southampton
10:00 a.m: West Brom v. Leicester City
10:00 a.m: West Ham v. Burnley
12:30 p.m: Chelsea v. Crystal Palace
Marko Arnautovic, WHU v. BUR ($9,500): Arnautovic has put at least one shot on target in nine consecutive matches, scoring six goals on 25 shots (13 on target) during that span. Not only that, he created 16 chances over that span. His floor is a bit higher than other goal-dependent forwards, but he also comes in with the best anytime goal scorer odds outside of Chelsea, and there's no guarantee that Alvaro Morata ($11,000) and/or Pedro ($9,500) start, something that could force you to roster Christian Benteke ($7,000) or Alexander Sorloth ($7,500) in the late game on the slate.
Chris Wood, BUR at WHU ($7,000): It seems a bit nuts to roster two attacking players from a West Ham-Burnley match, but here we are. Wood returned from a two-month absence to score one goal on four shots (two on goal) during Burnley's 2-1 win over Everton last weekend, and given that he's had five games with multiple shots on goal and a matchup against West Ham, why not roll the dice for this low salary?
Eden Hazard, CHE v. CRY ($12,500): If you're going to pay up for a Chelsea player, the conversation starts with Hazard, who not only created 24 chances and drew 23 fouls in seven games before last week's poor performance at Manchester City, but he also comes in with the highest anytime goal scorer odds. With basically no forwards to break the bank for, there should be plenty of salary cap space for Hazard. Fantasy players could also considering pairing him with Willian ($10,000) or Cesc Fabregas ($9,500), though there is similar risk as described above with Morata, as you'll have to pivot to a cheaper player you may not want to play.
Pascal Gross, BHA at EVE ($8,500): Gross' fantasy returns are inflated a bit thanks to one goal and three assists in his last four games, but it's still worth noting he created 15 chances and put six shots on goal during that span. Meanwhile, Everton haven't shut out an opponent since Boxing Day, which helps alleviate some concerns that Brighton have just seven away goals all season.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson, BUR at WHU ($7,500): Gudmundsson has been one of the most consistent fantasy producers over the past few weeks, even when he doesn't get on the scoresheet. His ability to create chances while contributing with multiple defensive stat categories gives him a solid floor, and while he's not a high-volume shooter he's still put a shot on goal in three of his last four games. West Ham have been better at home this season, but Burnley could turn things up a notch with Chris Wood finally back from injury.
Florian Lejeune, NEW v. SOU ($6,000): Lejeune has been a fairly consistent source of clearances lately, registering at least 10 in three of his last four starts. Additionally, he blocked two shots in three of those games, giving him a solid floor against a Southampton team that has forced the second-most clearances and had the third-most shots blocked this season among teams on the slate.
Ben Mee, BUR at WHU ($6,500): Mee has scored at least 14.5 fantasy points in six consecutive matches thanks to a combination of clearances, blocked shots and interceptions. The West Ham attack is finally starting to come together, and they should be on the front foot at London Stadium on Saturday, providing Mee and center-back partner James Tarkowski ($6,500) with plenty of opportunities.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, CRY at CHE ($5,000): Wan-Bissaka comes in scoring 23.00 and 25.00 fantasy points in his last two games, respectively, done so with a solid combination of tackles, interceptions, clearances, blocked shots and passes. With Chelsea likely to dominate possession against the Eagles, Wan-Bissaka should be in a position to keep his streak going given the chances he'll have to try and get the ball back.
Jordan Pickford, EVE v. BHA ($5,000): Pickford comes in with 15 saves in his last four games, including 10 in his last two. The defense in front of him isn't that great, but he'll now face a Brighton side that has just seven away goals this season. Given their lack of strong finishing, the save opportunities should continue to be there for Pickford, who has the second-highest clean sheet odds on the slate.
