With a quarter of the season gone, it is an opportune time to anaylse the biggest improvers in Goal.com EPL Fantasy competition.
Chelsea attacker Juan Mata [£17,550,000] leads the way, with a whopping price increase of £8,040,000 to go along his No.2 Fantasy player ranking.
West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan [£11,400,000] - having a stellar season thus far - closely follows him, having lifted his value by £6,720,000.
Rounding off the top three is Liverpool's 17-year-old wonderkid, Raheem Sterling, who now sits at £9,630,000.
He has been a revelation and bargain buy that could improve even further as the season progresses - £6,280,000 is an incredible swell in value.
The most-improved search engine is a great feature for all Fantasy coaches.
Do not forget to scour the market through this functionality to improve your team as we enter a pileup of fixtures from now until the New Year.
Marouane Fellaini – Everton (30 points)
The towering Belgian's brace against Fulham continued his fine form this season and is a genuine Fantasy gun – £10,990,000.
Peter Odemwingie – West Bromwich Albion (26 points)
After a subdued start to the campaign, the Baggies forward netted a double to lift his side into the European places – £7,490,000.
Bradley Johnson – Norwich (24 points)
The former Leeds midfielder scored the only goal in his team's victory against Stoke and has been a standout performer in a side with a lack of quality – £7,030,000.
Nathan Dyer – Swansea (4 points)
After a blistering opening month, the diminutive winger has been in woeful form; confirmed by a price decrease of £3,160,00 – £4,480,000.
Sebastian Larsson – Sunderland (4 points)
Like his team, the Sweden international is experiencing a lacklustre period and with many seeing him as a Fantasy bargain pre-season, it is safe to say he is anything but – £7,170,000.
Kyle Walker – Tottenham (4 points)
Normally a great purchase for any coach, but the attacking right-back is yet to find the back of the net and is a major disappointment for any who selected the Spurs man – £5,400,000.
