GK: Heurelho Gomes – Watford – 1 Game, 4 Saves, 1 Clean Sheet = 9 Points
DF: Vincent Kompany – Manchester City – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Clean Sheet = 14 Points
After dealing with injuries all season (again) the City captain put in not only one of the best real life performances of the week but the best fantasy week with 14 points. It is hard to trust him as an asset due to the injury history but there’s no doubting that when he plays, Kompany is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League.
DF: Phil Jagielka – Everton – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Goal Conceded = 8 PointsOkay, this is just getting ridiculous. For the third straight week, Jagielka has both scored a goal and ended up in our Team of the Week. He actually would have had even more points had it not been for a foolish penalty conceded by Joel Robles. It’s hard to expect him to keep up this run, but it would be hard to bet against him at the moment.
DF: Kyle Walker – Tottenham – 1 Game, 1 Clean Sheet = 7 Points
MF: Xherdan Shaqiri – Stoke City – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
MF: Ander Herrera – Man United – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 11 Points
Herrera has been one of the more underrated players in this league for years, but this performance against Chelsea, handball notwithstanding, will certainly turn some heads. His deep-lying role limits his fantasy potential but at the low price of 5.3 he may be worth a punt while on form.
MF: Son Heung-Min – Tottenham – 1 Game, 1 Goal = 8 Points
MF: Kevin De Bruyne – Manchester City – 1 Game, 2 Assists = 8 Points
MF: Mesut Ozil – Arsenal – 1 Game, 1 Goal = 8 Points
FW: Harry Kane – Tottenham – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 10 Points
With the goal on Saturday, Kane is now just the fourth Premier League player to score 20+ goals in three straight seasons. He arguably could have had a couple of more goals against a struggling Bournemouth defence but you’ll absolutely take a 10 point outing from the Englishman.
FW: Marko Arnautovic – Stoke – 1 Game, 1 Goal, 1 Assist = 10 Points
